something with great graphics and awesome online play

needleinthehay's avatar

the xbox 360 specializes in online play (though it isn’t free, but reasonably priced), and most multi-platform games simply run better and often look more vivid on the 360.
a good example of this would be madden 08, the ps3 version runs at 30fps according to many reviewers.

what would you suggest for someone that likes games like halo and call of duty

cake7's avatar

halo is only on xbox360. Ps good choice in games I have both.

Beat170's avatar

Yeah I guess that’s true do u think that they will make a fourth

needleinthehay's avatar

a halo rts game is in the works, though it’s not being developed by bungie.

and i’m pretty sure a fourth will be made at some point, too much money in the series.

Beat170's avatar

you think that bungie splitting from microsoft is going to affect the next halos (if they make another)

needleinthehay's avatar

microsoft owns halo, so not really.

and i’m pretty sure bungie is still going to develop exclusively for microsoft, so i don’t see it as much of a big deal, they just have more creative freedom.

It really depends on what games you are into. I’m not into fps or shooters or pvp style games, so my sony-fanboi-ism (fangirl?) will always win out. I love the fact that the ps3 became my home entertainment center (bluray, home, movie trailers, etc).

LuckVIII's avatar

all depends on what type of games you want to play. Owning both I feel the xbox 360 is great for fps shooter especially when you frag against players online (for a fee) . The ps3 is awesome for RPG like final fantasy and sports games. The lines are blurred since a lot of games are available for both system so look at the excluive games and decide. Which ever system beaware you probably have to use a hd tv or at the very least an LCD screen to take advatange of graphics. It really makes a difference.

ps3. Blueray is the future

fireant4040's avatar

360 all the way. You will play it alot more and stay interested in the games longer because of the gamer points.

needleinthehay's avatar

why are people calling it blue-ray? you should at least know what the name is of the format you blindly stand behind.

confusedcrib's avatar

people who simply flout the ps3 as being better are just acting ill-informed. The xbox 360 is offering you online play YEARS ahead of the ps3’s online functions (they’re just now getting in game friends list) next the 360 is cheaper than the ps3 if money is an issue. Not many know this but if anything the xbox 360 is more advanced in terms of game design potential than the ps3. It is capable of better ai and shading. Most cross platform games seem to look better on the xbox than ps3 ( offers some of these comparison videos) the ps3 does have its advantages though. It is the cheapest blu ray player on the market and offers more Japanese content. Most of the ps3’s “pro’s” can easily be debunked. The previous answer’s author seems to be grossly misinformed. The six axis controller is currently a gimmick that makes games worse (see lair and motorstorm for proof) the games are no better being that most of the games are multi platform with the exception of metal gear solid and little big planet. In summary the 360 has much better online play, arguably better games, no doubt better exclusives at the moment, a better price point, a rumored blu ray drive in the making, movie rentals, vast media market place, vast amounts of casual and arcade games, equal if not better graphics, and it frankly looks better than the behemoth that is the ps3. The ps3 only has free online, guaranteed blu ray, a slight lead in Japanese devolpment. I think that the choice is obvious
