Let start by saying, I have always been an XBOX fan, I had the 1st xbox then xbox 360 and the new 360s 250gig consoles, I got a PS3 for the Blu-ray player as the price of a decent one was'nt much less than the PS3, And ho boy what a machine this is.
It does everything, Play's game's, full internet browser, Blu-ray player, BBC and ITV player and Channel 4, music player, it's a full media center, where as the Xbox does none of this.
Playing game's the graphics look far crisper on the PS3 than xbox, and you also dont have to pay 35 pounds per user to go and play on-line. It has a massive hard drive (320G). I love this machine, so much so I have now sold my XBOX as the PS3 is a far better console.
So if your looking to buy either the PS3 or an XBOX 360 take my word for it, out of the two the PS3 is by far the better console.....
