Just a quick question, and no flames please. I currently have a PS2 (not played it in 6+ months), XBox (not played in 6+ months), and a PSP (play fairly regularly). I'm thinking about the "next generation" of gaming. I'm not a big gamer, I just play occasionally for fun. Maybe once a week for a couple of hours. I'm looking for excellent graphics, fun gameplay and ease of use (ie: I can just pick up my PSP and play it, but the Xbox seems more hassle plus I take over the living room). I like Splinter Cell, Metal Gear Solid 1 & 2 (hated MGS:3), Ridge Racer + racing games, Tekken, XMen: Legends, flight sims/action, Exit (PSP), Halo, Spiderman 2 (PS2). I don't like Grand Theft Auto, sports games like PES, Timesplitters 2, Gran Tourismo. I've never played my consoles online, although I used to play Counterstrike on the PC online and that was quite fun. The off-putting thing about online play are the millions of 10 year olds who seem to live for gaming and have become one with the matrix, making any game completely un-fun. I don't much enjoy seeing "l0000lll i r0xx0r joo 0wn3d!!!111oneoneone" for hours on end. So bearing that in mind, what do I get next? An XBox360 seems like a cheap option, but I'm not so sure about the games. The PS3 seems to have stunning games, but (like all new consoles) not very many of them. It's also relatively expensive, for a hundred quid more or so I could build an exceptional media center PC and set it up for gaming, PC games generally being ahead of the curve. The benefit of a PC is online gaming is free, whereas it seems the PS3 and Xbox require a subscription? That seems a rip-off. So really I'm a bit stuck. I'm really not looking for fanboys, just some honest suggestions whether I'm better off with a console or a media center PC set up for gaming (it would be a separate pc, not my day-to-day use one). Cheers!
