Hello, i'm looking for 2.1 speakers with 2x 3.5mm jacks for my xbox 360 and ps3. I will be using 2 Phono to 3.5mm StereoAdators to turn the Red/White Phono from the ps3 and 360 into 3.5mm jacks. http://www.maplin.co.uk/Free_UK_Delivery/2_Phono_to_3_5mm_Stereo__Adaptor_1218.htm
My main question is, if there is 2.1 speakers with 2x 3.5mm jacks can i use both the ps3 and 360 be plugged in at the same time(not used at hte same time) or will one be dedicated one console to one speaker and the other to another speaker?

You could use something like this to switch the audio:

It also switches video, but this version is cheaper than the audio switcher.

You can plug in the red/white phono plugs directly to the switchbox inputs from the consoles, and connect the speakers to the output phono. You should then be able to switch which input to use for sound.

Depending on the speakers you buy, if it has a single 3.5mm jack lead, then you will need a 3.5mm socket to phono adapter to connect it to the output of the switchbox like this:

I would save up some more as £80 seems very limited. A few more weeks won't matter surely? You're looking at PC type setups AFAIK. You will find the Aego M's cheaper elsewhere, I just used ripcaster as an example as I've used them recently for another purchase. I'm sure you could get them for around £90.
