    Here's the deal. I just got $250.00 for my birthday and I have some decisions to make and I need your help...

    I have been going back and forth over the past few weeks about trading in my 360, DS Lite and games for a PS3. I just got a new 42in LCD, I kinda want a blu-ray player and well I'm just all confused.

    SOOOO, why not come to the place with all of the great advice?!?! What should I do? Trade it? Keep it? Take the $250.00 and buy some plastic crack?

    If you trade your 360 for a PS3, you make my generation look smart.

    I think you'd be crazy to do that. Unless there's no more games coming out for 360, and everything you want is for PS3, i'd say keep the 360. Save the 250 and sell the DS, you'll be close to the price of the PS3.

    Or go to the strip club.

    I have both and I say don't. You have Gears 2 coming in Nov. Trade in or sell the DS and games and just save up, but keep the 360.

    If you can have both, then get/keep both. If you have to choose, the 360 wins.


    Can you keep the 360 and wait 'til you have the $400 for a PS3?

    Having all three current systems right now, and as cool as the PS3 is, I don't think it's worth giving up your 360 for. My advice is yes, you should get a PS3, however save the $250 you have right now, maybe trade in that DS and a few games, put that with the $250 and then add a little money here and there when you can. $400 will build up rather fast, especially with such a good head start.

    Dont do it. I have both systems and would not get rid of either. Do this: Go to Bestbuy, get their bestbuy card, Buy the PS3 with 250 in cash and the rest on credit. You should be able to pay it off in 2 months without any finance charges.

    Don't do it. The 360 has plenty of good games, whereas the PS3...eh...not even one good game out there.

    I have both systems and I prefer the PS3 (mainly because Xbox 360s break down) but I would keep the 360 and just save for a PS3. The PS3 is awesome with games like Uncharted and many more that are on both systems plus you get a blu-ray player for cheaper than most. Good deal. Good luck on your decision.

    pretty much consensus is keep the 360 and if I can get a PS3 later then do it. I do plan on getting rid of my ds lite and the games so that will help out with some extra funds. I saw that there is a MGS4 special edition with a dualshock 3 coming out in June so I'm gonna hold off for that. Thanks for all the help.

    I haven't played my xbox 360 since november, when I got tired of halo 3. I'm getting rid of it, getting a PS3 when the new hardware revision comes out w/ an 80GB.

    Why not, by the time you get done with your favorite game picks on the PS3 , 360's will be more into an affordable price range.
    That 'home' thing it has going looks pretty cool

    Uncharted is a must experience and Resistance 2 OMG COOL!
