Re: PS3 vs. Xbox 360?
never had a 360 over heating problem, though i am on my 2nd, 360's are notorious for dieing and most people i know whose had one are on their 2nd (some more). They are great, just their downside is reliability.
I wouldnt be too concerned with more titles for 360, as now most are old you wouldnt go back to them and just look forward to new releases.
Blu Ray wise on PS3 as PS3 is connected to net theres no problems with firmware upgrades, i was reading a news srticle yesterday, people who paid £1000 for the first models some of these cant be updated so therefore wont play all content for 1.1 releases of blu ray.
Live is great though on 360, tough call, i'd go with 360 the controllers are very comfy, playstation havent updated their pads since PS1 really and find them uncomfy. 360 is smaller and more compact too, and of course cheaper. The live is great and established on 360, i've no idea what PS3's is like though. 360 has the HD add on if you want it for movies, i dont think HD DVD is in too much threat just yet, especially after blu rays announcement of the 1.1 thats not going to work on some of the older machines.
I didnt know PS3 plays divx and xvid though? thats a very good feature
Both machines have good and bad points, cant go wrong either way really.
