Xbox360, PS3 or membership on WoW?

I'm torn between an Xbox360, Playstation 3 or to have membership on World Of Warcraft.

I'm not sure on the in dfference between the Xbox360 and PS3, except for the games available on each.. though, because it's alot of money.. and i'm an RPG fanatic, I'm also torn a third way, towards World Of Warcraft.

Can somebody tell me which they think is better, and why?

Thank you very much.

    I think X-Box 360 is the best, I own a PS3 and an X-Box 360 and I don't even play the PS3 anymore because the games aren't good. I never played WoW so I can't really tell you anything about that.

    Well... the xbox360 burns out sometime, it did with my uncle. The PS3 is a good thing to use but, you'll need a network to sign in. World of Warcraft you have to pay but, it only needs a download, a username and password, and pre-paid game time. But, it's worth all that once you start to play there's leveling, killing and the pleasure of doing pvp at battlegrounds and you choose your realm and the holiday and season updates they do on the game and the classes and races. The races have some abailitys that they're mostly good at. So i'd go with the World of Warcraft. Oh... and you get to interact plus alot of people to play with and most of your friends might play like mine. Sorry it was long.

    PS3 is $499 and the Xbox 360 Elite is $479. $20 dollar difference...

    PS3 games produced are on Hd 50gig blueray (more space for better graphics without sacrificing game levels and game size..) GTA4 developers even stated that the game will have better graphics and gaming on the ps3 version and are having issues with the 360 version because of 8gig dvd game format... They may have to make the 360 version on multiple disc so if you like getting out of your chair alot while playing, .....

    360-elite games produced on dual layered 8gig dvds

    game developers are finding the 360 format to limiting and finding that they have to sacrifice game graphics or gaming levels and challenges...Bungie the makers of HALO series have parted the exclusive ways with Microsoft and are now developing games that are multiplatform...

    Ps3 for the extra $20 you get a full HD entertainment system that also surfs the internet. You can goto any website and watch or download videos like YouTube...You can access your email and print it etcc...

    Ps3 Blueray hd movie player that also upscales regular dvds movies to HD...It also upscales ps2 games to hd..

    Ps3 comes with rechargeable controllers...

    Ps3 comes with free online play and Wifi

    All of the above the 360-elite can't do.

    360 and elite -For hd movies you have to buy the hddvd player for $200. For

    360 elite for quick charge kit you have to buy it for $20.

    To play online the 360 charges $50 a year

    360 elite no interent browser

    Ps3 hdmi 1.3 (supports deep color)

    360-elite- 1.2 doesn't support deepcolor 1.3

    Ps3 Nvidia RSX GPU Graphics at least two years ahead of it's time. And programmers aren't even close to using it's full potential yet.

    360-elite is hardware locked into outdated DX9 graphics-Game programmers are developoing for DX10 (full 4d and 3d motion realism)

    THe ps3 8cell broadband processors. CPU-Designed specifically for highspeed calculations (Games Capable of more AI charactors )

    Xbox 360 -Elite-- The New 65NM CHip....Isn't any different then what they used in the 360 core except it cost less to produce....

    Ps3 you can buy any external usb harddrive and hook it up loaded with music videos , etc...You can buy any brand 2.5 ata harddrive and upgrade the harddrive size for ps3...

    THe elite and 360 requires Microsoft harddrives only- for a 20gig it's $100, for the 120 it's $189

    360 -elite for wifi you have to pay an additional $100 and online gaming is $50 a year...And for that $50 a year to play online you also get stuck with third party in menu advertising...

    To use 60% of what the 360 and elite can do you have to buy the addons and you'll spend over $750 before you even insert a game.

    THe elite and new 360s hdmi, 65nm( falcon), red ring of death--Microsoft has no Idea what the cause is, You can't fix what you can't find. So yes they are all vulnerable.

    THe 360 sales numbers are game producer driven by three titles HALO, bioshock ( rumored to be multiplatform soon and availble to the pc now) and Gears of war (available to the PC now)...If it wasn't for those titles many gamers wouldn't tolerate the limitations and engineering flaws of the 360

    Get the ps3 you can use it for so much more. We own all three. THe wii, elite and ps3
