And i belive cause PS3 is blue ray you cant watch regular DVD's through it (But dont quote me on that, i dont own one) where as you can on the 360.

    in my oppinion Xbox is the cheaper choice of the two, As Ps3 consol costs more and games generally cost more too (but hold value better too ive noticed)

    I mean I suck with Xbox 360 and ps3 (gimme a Keyboard and mouse and im on fire tho) But really its a matter of preferance here.
    I see no difference between DVD's and BLURAYS only a little quality difference and much more memory.
    Also, as you said the xbox is cheaper...Even the games are cheaper.

    By certain games he means upwards of 50 (Or something like that), so not totally pointless.

    You forgot data-transfer rate, but I guess that shows up in the quality boost. Also, how hypocritical is this^ sentence? :O

    No, the games are the same prices. And it depends what bundle you get. The Xbox itself is cheaper (You get what you pay for). Looking at Bestbuy right now though, you can get a 160GB PS3 with BlackOps for $250. Or a 250GB Xbox with 3 games for $300. Or a 4GB Xbox with no games for $200. Don't forget to factor in your $60 a year. That will even out the price real quick, and eventually, your cheap Xbox will be more expensive. Enjoy!

    That sounds offensive. They prefer to be called big cased

    What'd you mean upwards of 50?

    I have read something about RRoD or the red ring...
    Ive heard alot of people complaining that their xbox had that ring in its first month.
    I also heard that buying an xbox halo reach bundle decreases the chance of getting a RRoD, is that true ?

    Also what xbox do you suggest me to buy ? You know, the packages like elite or arcade and can you state what differences they have ?
    I've had my xbox for quite a while (I think 2 years?) I haven't red ring'd yet, My friend has had hers for a really long time and it red ring'd once, and she google'd how to fix it, something about a blanket and over heating it, I'm not too sure on the specifics but it's easily fixable then most people make it seem.

    There really isn't much worth playing on the xbox that you couldn't already do with a computer. Only major thing I see would be if a lot of your friends play through xbox live.

    Only reason I see this being true is if they bundle a more recent line of xboxes in that package. Otherwise, it really sounds like a bunch of crap peddled by the Master Chief Bungeeslave Fanclub.

    That kind old lady stopped the rain for us.
    She said it would only make us cold, and miserable, and sick.
    We thanked her and hugged her and she walked away smiling warmly.

    Isn't that potentially dangerous for the X-Box, though? I remember reading about that a while back and thought I read that it is a potential fix, but a risky one as it may actually do further damage to the console instead. But this was some time ago, so maybe I misremember.
    It's all Rodri's fault.

    Yea when she told me about it, I kind of looked at her weird lol. It doesn't seem like something that would actually fix it but then again I've never personally tried it. I also remember (I think Dan telling me) that for just about $50 you can get it easily fixed at a technician.
