XBox 360 vs. PS3

With the $200 holiday bundles. PS3 with Infamous series and Uncharted 1 & 2 or XBox 360 with Forza and Skyrim. I'm trying to decide between a new XBox 360 or a PS3. I'm looking for opinions of each.

Thanks!

On 360, it required that both of us have a Gold account to play together on the same XBox, in the same room.
I have always felt that an XBOX Live subscription should be per xbox and not per person.

Whoa? What? What game was that? That's completely on the developer and not the Xbox. The vast majority of games can have a guest profile to be used online in matches and when it comes to playing offline on the same TV, you usually don't need one at all. That's so strange.

Okay, I just picked up a used PS3 with 2 wireless controllers for $110. I need some game recommendations. I don't like COD, or most fps games. Halo is an exception. I don't play online a lot.

So far, I'm getting FIFA 13 and Gran Turismo 5. Madden is out, as is NCAA 13.

I personally started voting with my dollar and not putting up with micro$ofts crap of making me pay for live to use my netflix subscription when every other device in the world offers netflix for free.

I would say overall I liked the 360 better than the ps3 cause I actually played a lot of games on 360 whereas now my ps3 is just a media player.

Uncharted series is amazing the first tame, after that i've always ended up selling them. I thought Heavy Rain was horrible, couldn't get into it for some reason, they made a similar one on PS2 if anyone remembers and I thought that was a lot better.

I have never bored of Uncharted. My younger son will play them and need help. When I start helping that is when I get all caught up in it again and can't put it down.

Yeah it's an amazing game for kids, really tests they're knowledge with the puzzles and such. What was you're favorite Uncharted? I thought 2 was amazing and had the best game play although 3 was beautiful and challenging.

Since you mentioned RAC, I HIGHLY reccomend Jak & Daxter HD Collection, not only will you have fun with it but you're son would too and it's an open world platformer made by Naughty Dog, same developers of the Uncharted series. Game is like dirt cheap and comes with 3 games, it's like over 100 hrs of gameplay imo, maybe even more.

Uncharted 2 without question. I even Platinumed that game. Never tried J&D though.

This game allowed for that too, but then you can't save your progress (since a Guest account doesn't allow for local storage of saved games on the XBox).

The game was Sacred 2. And yes, the developer is culpable. At the end of the day, Ascaron said that the M$ system was just too difficult to deal with and they couldn't get it to work the way they could on other systems.

Get the God of War saga. They have a $39.99 bundle that includes 1, 2, 3, and the two handheld games. I played all 5 in sequence and they were great.
