    The thing that really pulls me in about the PS3 are the games.

    Some exclusives:

    Uncharted 2 (Action-Adventure; Metacritic 96)

    Metal Gear Solid 4 (Stealth/TPS; 94)

    LittleBigPlanet (Platfomer; 95)

    Heavy Rain (Interactive Experience; 87)

    Demon's Souls (WRPG; 89)

    God of War III (Action; 92)

    Killzone 2 (FPS; 91)

    Some upcoming games:

    LittleBigPlanet 2 (Platformer/Anything, as players can make their own games; January)

    Killzone 3 (FPS; February)

    Final Fantasy Versus XIII (JRPG; there's speculation that this might end up multiplatform)

    The Last Guardian

    Mass Effect 2 (WRPG; previously 360 exclusive, 96)

    And that's not even getting into downloadable PSN and PSone classic games.

    Other pros:

    -Free online

    -Blu-Ray player consistently rated the best on the market

    -Failure rate much lower than 360 (especially compared to older 360s)

    -According to developers, PS3's limits haven't yet been reached where 360's have (i.e. more potential in the PS3)

    Cons:

    -Inferior online to Xbox Live

    -Mandatory installs (mostly on older games)

    -Multiplatform games typically better on 360 (mostly on older games; differences are negligible on newer games)

    ***My opinion***

    Get the PS3, but keep your 360. More than one console is always better, because you're not locked in to one console's exclusives. And besides, you still like your 360 games, right? No point in rebuying them.

    obviously u can get it.

    ps 3 slim is better. Because its have more graphics and more free online games.

    PS3 Slim Pros:

    - More affordable $299 price;

    - slimmer, more compact design with quieter operation;

    - all games in high-definition; easy-to-use interface;

    - doubles as a Blu-ray and upscaling DVD player;

    - built-in Wi-Fi;

    - HDMI output with 1080p support;

    - built-in Web browser; free online gaming service.

    Ps3 Slim Cons:

    - Lacks backward support for PS2 games;

    - no infrared port means non-Bluetooth universal remotes aren't compatible;

    - online gaming, media, and commerce options still aren't as fully developed as Xbox Live, though they're getting better.

    I suggest Xbox 360, this is not a fanboy, I do not go crazy it really doesn't matter but:

    PS3-

    Good: Free online and blueray

    Bad: Not as much good games and not as good online experience

    Xbox 360-

    Good: Better online, more players, better games

    Con: Gonna cost you some cash

    Con:

    -Its games are more expensive

    -Xbox gets the new CoD Black Ops maps first.

    Those are the first things that come to my mind

    I dont really care for the PS3. Personally, I'd only buy it if there was a game on it I was dying to play with. ((like some love metal gear and such))

    But Its also handy because you can carry it around with you :D ((its like a DS, but better :P))
