PS3 vs. XBox 360..

Anyone know anything about these? My hubby has a PS2 and a Wii, and has talked about wanting either a PS3 or XBox 360, but I'm not sure which one we should go with. I was thinking about getting it for him for Christmas or his Birthday but when I ask his friends which one they think he will like, it is split right down the middle. Since I don't play, I don't care, I just want to get him something that is good, that when our son gets older they can play together.

  • I believe his PS2 games can be played on a PS3, that may be a good reason to go with that system. My DS has the 360, my SS has the PS3 - both boys think that the 360 has better games and add-on things.

  • well they both have completely different games, so find out waht games he wants to play or usually does then get that one. like i prefer the 360 because they have my fave game. not because graphics or whatnot.

  • you can play live with other ppl on the ps3 too, but imo the xbox 360 is more user friendly

  • That's a lot of gaming systems for a grown man!! I personally would not get him another. But, my son loves XBox 360. You can play live with other people around the world. He just got Hockey 2011 and really loves it.

  • He only plays the sports games...If he's gotta think to much into a game he won't play it..He loves the Nascar, NCAA, Madden type games.

  • At this point he does all the chores, becuase I'm on bed rest. He gets in his moods where he would rather play them than watch tv, or when we have the team parties (he plays/coaches on a few city league sports teams) it's fun for all the guys to get together and play. All men really are is taller boys anyway right? I was always told growing up that that only thing that changes as they get older is their toys become more expensive. Plus, when we have our son, I know he'll play (although by the time he's old enough I'm sure whatever I get will be old by then) Plus, when my nephews come over, it gives them something to do as well. So while yes, I would be getting it for my husband, it would serve many other purposes as well.
