is there a good, reliable site for reviews? rumor's had it that ign or one of the other ones hates playstation, and a few of these other review places seem fairly inconsistant. just curious if there's a site any of you use and swear by.
Gamespot is harsh on all systems so if a game gets a high rating it's a damn good game.

If you plan on watching any high def media the ps3 has blue ray built in, whereas hd dvd will be an extra charge.

The ps3 has built in wireless networking whereas the 360 needs the 100 dollar dongle from microsoft or a network bridge. So you are setup there, also both machines support streaming video from the pc, which means you can download, or possibly watch video off of the web.

It seems that the xbox supports a little bit more in that area for now, also the ps3 has built in charging for the controllers, whereas you have to pay extra for that capability with the 360. I think the ps3 has the bigger hard drive also.

I think the ps3 is a great value. The ps3 seems like a better option since you can use it for blu ray, browse the internet, and also stream video.

an underrated thing about the PS3 is the sixaxis controller... games are eventually going to use the full capability of the controller and you will have an effect similar to the Wii... also, the one with a rumble pack comes out in a month or two.

IGN doesn't "hate" on the playstation. Assassin's Creed got .5 lower on IGN, and that was somewhat controversial, because they couldn't decide if framerate was worse on the PS3 or 360. Other than that they haven't ever "hated" on the PS3.

Although, IGN UK, AU, and regular IGN give very very very different reviews.

In general, IGN has sucked for reviews lately, no matter what console you have. Just use metacritic. http://www.metacritic.com/

It compiles and averages all the reviews.

I almost prefer my phone's internet browser. The PS3 has lots of good features but dear god, don't bring up the gimped out browser. I'd bring up Blu Ray, Home (even though Home doesn't seem that enjoyable to me, it is still pretty popular), or exclusive games. But the browser?

Wow...I knew I really wanted Heavy Rain...simply for the fact that it was being made by Quantic Dream but, now that they've been meeting w/ A-List celebrities to star in the game...I really, really, really want it. This game is going to be amazing and I have no idea what the hell it's about. haha. I really want it, though.

They've had meetings w/ Leonardo Dicaprio and several other A-list stars.

You are right though about the exclusive games but that shouldn't influence anyone's decision IMO. Most people know the exclusives already but if they don't here's a list.

Exclusives are the only thing people should be basing their decisions on.

You should get the console that has the games you like.

You disagree?

Why the hell would you buy a GAMING CONSOLE for something other than GAMES? If you want to watch Blu Ray or HDDVD movies, buy a freaking stand alone player, which is a much higher quality player. If you want to browse the internet or go on MSN, use a PC.

Game consoles are meant to play games. They may have some other features, but the main point of them is to play games. If you're buying a gaming system for any other reason you're an idiot who likes overpaying for inferior products.

PS3 is the highest quality Blu Ray player out there at this point.

IMO what people should base their decision on is what system offers the most for the cheapest. PS3 does that. But, if the 360 has the games they like then they should go with that.

I agree with frogstomp. You buy the system for the games. While there were many factors in my decision, games was BY FAR the #1 reason I chose PS3 over the 360. I loved the built in blu-ray player and familiarity of the system, if games such as Metal Gear Solid 4 and Final Fantasy XIII were not available for PS3, I'd probably have an 360 right now.

I was always going to buy my PS3 strictly for God of War 3. But I was going to wait for it to be released first. But the more I heard about it (built in Blu Ray, etc) I realized I could use it for many things before the game comes out.

so I just beat Drake's Fortune yesterday, took me about 9 hours...loved the game, reminded me a lot of Resident Evil (I love RE) except with treasure hunting...had a sweet storyline and some cool twists, kinda hoping they make another one (I really think they will)

about to start playing COD4, so once I get the hang of it I'll be going online like everyday since I'm on break for the next 3 weeks
