I advise PS3.
You had ps2, maybe ps1 too? So dont jump on the xbox wagon.
Ps3 online is free, yet, sometimes it gets annoying, like cant find a match or something. Xbox live is better, but you have to pay quite a lot each month, just to play online.....
Both consolses havegames suited for them.
Xbox looks shite, looks like some piece of alien **** frmo outer space? The controller is weird, feels weird, its crap. Ps3 is black, slim, smooth, sleek, sexy, the controllers are soo much better then ps2 controlers. Lot more to do.
On ps3, you cant go into your consolse hardrive like you can do on Xbox, but thats good, that means you cant cheat in games (changing configs etc)
Dont be an asshole that betrays your ps2. Come on, your ps2 gave you so much enjoyment, and was setting you up for PS3, dont betray the Playstation universe! PS will take over Xbox soon, trust me.
What more can the xbox do in future xboxes?
I was told the next xbox is Xbox 720. That sounds **** compared to PS4.
The ps3 has SO much more to upgrade in future models, the xbox has gone all out already, but still PS3 levels it.
dont forget Xboxs have SO many more problems! Just as many problems as a shitty computer (they both use windows)
And to asnwer your other question, PS3 is better for Movies! Plus, in the ps3, there are sooo many demo-s of games, wallpapers, songs, avatarsm full games, all this bla bla. Theres free movie programs (yes you can watch movies free) edit photos, go on internet browser.
Its so much better.
Quote from another answer 'xbox 360 isnt free for online gaming but shopping around you can get a gold membership for a year from as little as £24 per year (and taking into account the demos and content supplied, this wipes the floor with ps3)' -Shaun.
^ not really? Ps3 demos and all that content is free too mate. Theres a lot more in the library too.
You only just stopped playing ps2, so thats 5-6 years of it? maybe more. So lets say you play xbox/ps for 5-6 years too, 6 years of xbox live 6x25=150, so add 150 onto whatever you pay for an xbox. So then NO its not cheaper is it!? 'Xbox is cheaper than PS3' NO IT ISNT. **** me, xbox is so shitty.
Go for PS3.
i spent 2 years deciding ps3/xbox. Played them both many times in no biased way at all.
Xbox is shite.
