i'm planning to by a game system but i can't decide which one is better, the ps3 or xbox 360. If choose eather one of them, how many gigabites game system should i buy. also, please tell the benefits of the game system. i asked a gamestop manager which one he recommend and he said to choose the one that your friend plays that most but idk a lot of people.
Okay so I can't really give you the specs(like gigs) but I can tell you that it all depends on you. Like the gamestop manager said, pick the system that you know more people have, or the one your closest friends have.
You say you don't know a lot of people, then pick your system based on how much you plan on playing. I've found that the 360 is for more avid gamers, while the ps3 is for the casual gamer.
If you are planning to play only multiplayer then 360 is better, but if you don't want to pay for the online PS3. Overall PS3 is a better system, it's more user friendly and comes with many features that 360 does not have including a web browser and music/video services. For the memory, I have a 60gb PS3 and a 20gb XBOX... definatly get at least 60gb. however you can only buy 120 and up I believe.
filetofspam is right, check out what games you like to play and what systems they are available on eg. metal gear solid is PS3 only while gears of war is xbox only, i'd choose ps3 (MGS is an awesome game)
If there is a particular game you are interested in that may guide you. I play Gran Turismo 5 so PS3 is the machine for me since GT5 only runs on the PS3.
