    I was saving for an X-box 360 (i already have a PS3) and thought that i could buy games for my PS3 (there hasn't been a lot lately).
    Here's my thoughts:
    PS3: Modern warfare 2, MAG, Assassins creed 2 and Battlefield bad company 2.
    Or an X-Box 360. I can't make up my mind so what do u guys think?

    It all depends on the games you want to play. If down the road you want 360-exclusive games, like Halo and Gears of War, then get a 360. If exclusive games aren't a big issue, continue buying games for the PS3.

    X-box, you'll probably enjoy having two systems more than more PS3 games that can be rented from Blockbuster for about 8 bucks.

    Get more PS3 games. There's nothing exclusive to either console that makes one more worth owning than the other. Stick to the one console for now, pick up a 360 when the second hand prices drop to peanuts and then play the few exclusive titles worth bothering with.

    More PS3 games. MW2, AC2, Uncharted, and MAG. All of these are much better than spending your money and a 360.

    It never hurts to have another console with great games. If I stuck to only the PS3, then I wouldn't be playing ME2. But on the other side of that coin, ME2 is the only reason my 360 has turned on in months, so like any advice on consoles, If you feel the value of the one or two games on the 360 outweighs the games you could be getting on your existing console for the same price, then go with the PS3 games.

    Nothing like ME2 exists on PS3, but games like Halo exist on PS3, and depending on your opinion, with better production value and less Last-gen looking graphics. But if Halo is that good to you, then owning a 360 would be your absolute only answer.

    This was an edit: Oh and dude, if you plan on getting Assassin's Creed 2, Gamestop is having a sale this weekend. They have AC2 for 40 bucks. Picked up a copy yesterday.

    Get games for your PS3.
    If all you want out of a 360 is Halo, then you'd be wasting your time with it.

    You would call that a sale! could get it anywhere for less than 40. (im in the UK anyway) And you can't get Halo on PS3, it's X-box, PC and mac exclusive.
    Well the Halo games are pretty big, and Reach coming out this fall.

    Even so, I'd still call it a waste of a console if all you wanted was Halo.

    That said, if you do go ahead and get the 360.
    Rent Halo 3 for the campaign, then pick up ODST if you really want the multiplayer.
    You also get a Beta Entry for Reach with it.

    Yeah I'd call anything that is 60 bucks anywhere else in the city, a sale.
