But what if HD-DVD wins the format war and your blue ray is obsolete?
aslong as a market for blue ray is open it will not become obsolete. there is room for 2 player formats in the market , just like there is room for 2 rival game consoles in the market.
the ps3 blue ray is actualy the cheapest you can get, and its built into a high powered games system. that alone is enough to tip the balance in its favour, people are paying up to and over 1000 for a decent blue ray. and thats without the ps3 combo built in.
the x box is winning at the moment only because of its early release date. sony has many loyal fans who will buy the ps3, especially after xmas with the price drop.
thats probably not going to happen as of right no hd-dvd is getting spanked by blu-ray
Technically HD-DVD and Blu-ray are already obsolete, since both of them are confined to 'Materialistic' formats which are heavily reliant upon chemical components made from fossil fuels.
I bought a PS2 and own an Xbox - the Xbox DVD player was never near the perfromance of the PS2. Many MANY time I brought home a DVD that would skip or stop playing on the Xboax and play fine on the PS2. Sony just simply has better hardware.
Second - I loved the PS2 games, MGS, FF, ResEvil, GTA, etc... I did like a few exclusives on Xbox but not many, the two KOTORs come to mind.
Anyway, I'm waiting for PS3 to come down in price. If possible I would like to own both again, but I'll wait and see what each offers.
I agree the PS3 right now has no game I want to play other than Oblivion with is for both platforms.
My Xbox played DVD's just fine
The Xbox also DOES have the better hardware, for instance a hard drive, better graphics, etc
The 360 has WAY better games.
Just get a 360, it's alot better and I have no regrets.
i'm going ask you this directly because you have ignored it how can you say that the 360 is better than the ps3 when it has major hardware problems that microsoft has yet to do anything successfully about. Do you truely believe soft ware can overcome hardware issues. i mean does it really matter how good the games are if every so often you have to wait 6 weeks to get a patchwork repair job on it. the ps3 wins simply it doesn't have the hardware issues. consider statisticlly to have the same number of ps3s fail as in a batch of 10,000 360 you would need a batch of 15 million. and did you read my post where i summed everything up on both systems. i hope you can be obljective about this. and yeah the 360 has some great games but to say they are way better is going way out on a ledge in fact allmost all the advantages you say the 360 has are due to it has been out longer and it doesn't have all of the time related ones(relibility is time based) you also have yet to try and refute my comments on the current purchasing trends either which the ps3 has an edge their.
KOTOR wasn't x-box only it was on pc as well
i was reading some where that when holographic dics go commercial they will have 1.2 terabyte capcity
Even many times the scratched DVD would not play at all on the Xbox and played with ease on the PS2. I think Sony has better laser tech - they own the patent after all.
Anyway, I agree it's the games the matter most and right now PS3 don't have dick
Wow... why's everyone complaining about ps3's games? Does no one have any foresight? God of War, Heavenly Sword, the next FF game, the next KH game, Warhawk, MGS, and White Knight Story all are or will likely be exclusive to Ps3. Although, I did like Fable and Halo.
neither of which are exclusive to the x-box
good games don't mean squat if you systems broke
Are they on anything else besides PC?
I'm hedging PS3, although I'd think about both if I could afford them both - just because there are simply too many PS games I love. FF comes instantly to mind Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

Then you'd probably like White Knight Story too.
Pretty soon, I'll be playing halo3 online. If anyone wants to get their ass kicked, my username on xboxlive is the same as here.
And that's another point in favor of the xbox. Xbox-live kicks ass. Playstation lags far behind in this arena and I find on-line play to be vastly superior to just playing against the computer.
That is true.
