FF13 will most definitely be on both PS3 and 360, or is FF Versus something different? (I admittedly know next to nothing about the FF series)

If you have Netflix, you can watch the Instant Queue movies on your TV over Xbox live, which is quite handy.

Yeah, it really is a toss up, and more depends on if there are specific exclusives you'd like to play at this point. Both systems are starting to have some great exclusives, so it's tough to say. Even just a few months ago, I would have said 360 hands down. Now, PS3 has some pretty cool looking games as well.

If you're going for online gaming, I'd still definitely say 360. As Elfa has said, PS3 is great for Blu-Ray. Both systems have a large number of cool RPGs and shooters too. I'd take a look on a site like Metacritic and look through their lists of the top games for each system and see if there are any exclusives you can't live without on one system or the other.

Game Reviews from Metacritic

I never see you on there, but I'm game. I set mine to offline a lot because my dad plays a lot of Tiger and COD and sometimes I want him to think I'm actually studying instead of taking pinches, pounding gin & tonics, and telling Scumbo about my rent situation. I have to be incognito.

Yeah, I haven't been on in a few weeks either. Hopefully this weekend I'll get some playing time in. My 360's been a glorified DVD player for the past week or so.

R COD teem wuz 3pic!

Then it started putting us on opposite teams, and I was the only person on my team with a positive kill to death ratio.... Instead of you and I working fools in the tanks together, I was trying to take on 2 tanks at once by myself. Not so fun.

I'm in for playing some Halo or GTA with you guys as well, let me know.

Dude, I fucking hate Nirnroot.

I can't stop taking on different missions in Oblivion. I just mastered the Mages Guild, now I'm working on the Fighter's Guild, and poor Martin is waiting for me to go to Paradise with him or something. I finally got a house - nice place in Anvil. Had to dominate the ghosts that lived there, but it's all good now. This game never ends.

For my fellow Fallout addicts in the crowd:

The Pitt (DLC) - Fallout Wiki - The Vault

Quote:
The Pitt will be the second Fallout 3 downloadable content pack, to be released in early March 2009 for Xbox 360 and Games for Windows Live.

The following is based on previews of The Pitt, an upcoming Fallout 3 DLC, and may contain spoilers.

In this DLC pack, the player will journey to the industrial raider town called The Pitt, located in the remains of Pittsburgh. This DLC is possibly based on some sort of conflict, suggested by the directive to "choose your side" in its advertised description. It is speculated that the player may have different karma-oriented methods of participating in the conflict.

During the latest interview with Bethesda, they state that Pittsburgh was not hit directly by an atomic bomb, but the surrounding water still became radiated making the people change in bad ways.

Apparently The Pitt will be accessed via railway, and will probably be loaded as a separate map from the Capital Wasteland. The Lone Wanderer will go there disguised as a slave in order to join, or usurp, a tribe of raiders that have taken over the steel yards there
NSW I was going to try and work in some sort of Stealers joke but I'm too lazy...

This is an example of what's making my decision so difficult. I'm quite interested in this game, and all these extras aren't coming to the PS3!

I'm guessing that Microsoft sent a pile of money.

By the way, if you have this game for the PS3, how is it in the stability category? I've read some complaints regarding this game and the PS3 in that regard.

I've never had an issue at all with it. Not even a slowdown. I also have a brand new PS3, so those people probably just have old hardware.

The only time I've ever had a game crash completely on me on my PS3 was doing weekly training drills for my franchise in Madden 09. That happened once (on my old PS3, the power supply fried thanks to my idiot roommate so it was exchanged over Christmas).

So far both the DLC packs for Fallout have been only for the XBox and PC versions.

It pisses me off, yes.

There is supposed to be something coming for the PS3 but I'm not holding my breath.

Well, frankly, I think I'm leaning back to the PS3 again. I just saw the Killzone 2 trailer, and I'm really very pumped for that. I can live without the Fallout 3 DLC, I guess. And if FF Versus XIII is PS3 exclusive, as rumoured, I'll have to get this anyway.

I will likely get an XBox 360 Elite console someday, mainly because of the hard drive size and the fact that the 120 GB hard drive costs $150, which more than negates any cost "savings" on the Pro console with its paltry 20 GB drive. I'm just going to wait for a price drop and for the more stable 65nm Jasper CPUs to proliferate more. I hear that they haven't reached the Elite end yet anyway, and I'm not in the mood for a loud, unstable older console.

BTW, for those wondering what FF Versus XIII is, compared to the standard FF XIII, it's a totally different game:

YouTube - Final Fantasy versus 13 trailer 2
