As far as I'm concerned one Microsoft product in the home is more than enough for me.
I consider a games console to be for games (funny, that, eh?)
Sure, the add-ons help, but until we get rid of PCs and all have consoles replacing them I find the 360 too much like a PC, and since I can also play games on PC, and the PS3 has a bigger choice of games for console, I find PS3 to be better overall.

Ah bless her, mommy has brough me one for Christmas, its under the tree :) It would have meant a whole lot more if she had been the one
who waited 14 hours in a queue for it :/

Part of me is tempted to cash in on it.

I do more on my PC, play games, mas.. eh I mean shopping etc.

The console still has a place in the home though:

Good for those drunken nights in with the lads. Bit of footie, racing etc
You can't really do that with a PC.

PS3 for me when I have the funds :roll: :?

and on the lines of Penguin

PlayStation + PlayStation 2 = Huge back catalogue of old and new games to run on it

XBox 360 unlikely unless it is a gift (I wish)

There is nothing available at the moment which would make me rush out and buy it. I have CoD 2 and Quake 4 on the PC already so I would need to see what games are planned for the future before I throw down the hard earned cash. I only bought my XBOX for Halo but I do think Microsoft are streets ahead in the console online department. :?

I might have been tempted, but more from using it as some sort of media centre than playing games. Having something that looks tidy that can play video and wavs and outputs hdtv to my projector would have been nice, but I gather it's got some media restrictions on both the audio and video front which I'm sure would annoy me somewhat.

If Piggeh's having one I won't... ;) No, seriously I'm gonna buy a PS3 instead.
It will match my TV and curtains better

Never ever in a million years! its bad enough I use microshits OS, noway I'm getting a game consol made from them aswell!
And to all you who rather have a PS3, *slap* snap out of it! its terribly overpriced for its performance, my mate got s*** 360 and my cousins got PS3, both got Collin MacGay Dirt and the diffrence in grafix isn't even noticeable.. So, why spend so much more when the lesser one is about the same? Both are a nono though, PC FTW.

Oh, btw.. Nintendo Wii FTW even more! Golf has never been fun untill Wii sports came out, can't get enough of it!

:lol:

anyway i don't think it's worth to spend money on playing consoles... don't see benefits of getting one.. that's from IT professional perspective anyway :)
