    Ok so I'm thinking of selling my PS3 and buying a 360, just because I'm fed up of dusting it carefully, it disconnecting from PSN and all my friends talking about Gears of War 2.

    I do however love the Sony published NaughtyDog, and also God of War and the Metal Gear Solid series (but I'm not too happy with 4 so that might be fine:))

    Are there any Uncharted 2 type games out/coming out on 360, also is Gears THAT good.

    I know that. That's why I tried to make this a bit different. This isn't a console flame war I'm starting. I just want peoples opinions on whether i'd like games on 360.

    Uncharted uses the same basic gameplay mechanics as Gears anyway, only not as well IMO and Gears 1 & 2 are fantastic, especially in co-op. MGS:Rising is coming to the 360 although that will probably be more action based than stealth. Keep your PS2 and replay God of War 2 as well because GoW3 looks like pretty much exactly the same in HD.

    I would say that if they are the only PS3 exclusives you like then you should definitely get an Xbox as there are so many great 360 exclusives and even more coming out in the future. :smashin:

    Thanks for the response, I was worried that the life of the 360 may be draining and Microsoft might announce the 720 or something soon.
    I probably will get a 360, I had one before but with the old dashboard and I sold it because I wanted MGS4, which is a dissapointment for fans of the core gameplay.

    I personally am not a fan of Gears of War 2. I thought the first was so good, and so if you do transfer then i recommend picking that up on the cheap. The second feels a bit lack luster for me.

    The online side of things on the 360 is quality though buddy. you pay a small subscription for the year for a gold account, but once you do you open yourself up to a world of joy, especially if your mates have it already.

    I don't have a PS3 so i cant really compare consoles properly.

    There are a few decent exclusive titles for the 360, as there is for the PS3 i'm sure.

    Ah, I've got an excellent connection and It's about to be moved to right underneath my room.

    I always get game ruining lag with the PS3, even though ethernet cable to the modem. Does the XBL connection ever drop for no reason and do they have server ofline moments for fixing bugs etc...?

    Ok, I get the irony now, but still, I just want opinions.
    I try not to rant, I might have when I was 12 but not now.

    Yeah u will love it, Gear of War is that good!, i never liked the online multiplayer side of things but single player/co-op is class so u will love them. Grab GoW cheap and enjoy! and as others have said XBL is fantastic.
    And the new Metal Gear when that comes out most likely will be on the 360 anyway it seems. :)

    In a strange coincidence Live is down for today while they prepare for a big update in the Fall. Apart from that though it is almost never down.

    Just as one more question

    Can I play games offline on a XBL account on a 360 then add the gamerscore I get to the account when I sign back in>

    The bottom line is that you have seen the best of everything the PS3 has to offer for the time being. Theres nothing on the horizon thats standout to me, where as on the Xbox you can go back to:

    Gears 1
    Gears 2
    Left 4 Dead
    Crackdown
    Fable 2
    GTA & Fallout DLC
    Halo 3
    Halo Wars
    The Forza Motorsport games
    Too Human

    Plenty to be getting stuck into :thumbsup: Oh, I was kidding about the last one :rotfl:

    I am lucky enough to own both a ps3 and an xbox360, and the 360 is definately the console of choice in the Flash household.
    Gears 2 is effing awesome dude, be prepared to be reamed:eek: online though, until you find the pace of gameplay.

    But to answer your original question.............nah you won't miss ya PS3!:smashin:

    Yeah, you'll miss it.

    Plenty of decent titles on the way (Uncharted 2; Heavy Rain; GT5; God of War III).

    And yeah, I only own a PS3 so I would agree.......

    Heavy rain i'm not interested in, just like i'm not interested in gt5, warhawk and so many of these other un-fun ps3 exclusives we've been given.

    Fair comment dude........ it's a Blu Ray/dvd player is the simple answer to that one:smashin:

    Plus to be fair I have the Play TV thing to record freeview too.

    yer, i thought it might be something like that, when the ps2 came out everyone bought it as a cheap dvd player, it just happened to have great games. now that blu ray is out the same thing's happening, just with less good games.

    Have you tried asking a similar question in the PS3 section?

    I own both. They get equal gaming time from me and there's no way I'll be giving up the bluray capability now.

    IMO Live isn't as vastly superior to PSN as many seem to think it is. It certainly isn't any more reliable in my house even though the xbox is wired and the PS3 wireless.

    What system are your friends playing on? That's probably the answer you're looking for.

    take a weekend off the booze and keep the ps3 and get an xbox. i have both, and its certainly a more enjoyable scenario than having to decide upon platforms. if something has online etc i get the xbox version. if its exclusive to ps3 and on sale i buy the ps3 version ;)

    in fact the only games that gets any time on my ps3 are ratchet and clank or ff7. gow3 looks amazing though so i wouldnt sell up just yet (even if all the exclusives are out next year)

    edit - forgot to say left 4 dead is awesome :)

    I'm glad I didn't jump on the PS3 bandwagon like a lot of my friends did just because they owned PS2s. I've convinced everyone who didn't get one to get a 360 instead and now quite a few of the PS3 owners are looking to get an Xbox because they can't take all the L4D/Halo/Gears talk while most of them are still playing CoD.

    I will always miss Ratchet and Clank though :(

    Nothing on PS3 really seems to appeal to me yet I love the 360. My mates are the same, very few have a PS3 and if they do, it was a freebie with a new mobile etc and they have 1 game (if that) and a handful of Bluray. I have a separate bluray player so have no real need for a PS3.

    I think the 360 has all bases covered when it comes to games and genres plus they're going after the more casual markets and non-gamers with natal which may also have some great bonuses for serious gamers too. I don't think you can lose and the 360 will be around for a couple of years yet.

    Thats some good advice, you can pickup an Arcade around £100 now and you can pickup a Hard Drive quite cheap and lots of games under a tenner :thumbsup:

    Could always use the George Foreman as a Blu Ray player :D

    welcome to the 360 world :smashin: where you will love the online gaming experience over PS3. And as far as games are concerned, i know you will be well and truly satisfied as there is a vast choice of games covering all genres to suit your taste. you wont regret it :)
