if you like the games in stock NOW
by dangcucu / February 13, 2006 2:00 PM PST

i say buy it if you like the games that are in stock now; but if you are not crazy over more than 2 or 3 games that are now then wait.
I got it and returned it after playing call of duty 2, i liked that game a lot. But, from what i heard Halo 3 & the awesome games won't come out until PS3 comes out. I got the PSP and i play the heck out of that system so i will wait until Xbox 360 comes out with more great games or the PS3 or Revolution show me something in there corner.

Hope that helps; i didn't get it out of my system to buy that Xbox until i finally bought it... Luckyly, i was able to return it. That's over $430.00 for a system with no must-have games.

If you want to wait 6+ months and then spend 2 times as much for a PS3. then go for it. But PS3 is more for the anme kids who love RPG's (big sales overseas). Not to say PS3 doesnt have awesome games I loved the ps1 and ps2 (just out grew the games I played). Xbox games to me seem like they are pointed towards sports and shooters. I own a 360 and I love it, my roomates cant stop playing it and they didnt even play games before. The graphics wont be that difrent between PS3 and Xbox 360. If anyone wants to argue that graphics make the game GET A PC!!! because in a year or so the PC will have the "better" graphics.

Thanks for the suggestions. The only thing to do is now is figure out where I can find a 360!
