    Default Spare cash left over xbox or ps3?

    As title says should i buy an xbox or a ps3? I was considering an xbox until my brother informed me that to play via the internet is not free with the xbox but it is with the PS3. Argos are selling the 40gb PS3 for £249.99 just now or the 80gb for £287.34
    I've got some cash left over from xmas and i sold my Wii the week before xmas as we hardly used it.

    Any recomendations ?

    PS3 its great plus you get a blue ray dvd player and the hard drives in the playstation can be upgraded whip the cover off and replace it with a 2.5 inch internal hard drive (laptop harddrive)

    Another plus as your friend said its free to play online, the xbox you have to pay about £15 for 3 months

    My brothers got the 40gb PS3 and says you can upgrade the ps3 with laptop hard drives. He has a 320gb lap top hard drive thats compatible which cost him £50. He'll eventually upgrade his but says the 80gb will be a newer version than his.
    I think i'd be as well to buy the 40gb and upgrade it if needed.

    We have got the ps3 and the 360 not a lot of difference in them really only the price & the ps3 has the blue ray player if I had to sell one think it would be the 360 so I would point you in the ps3 direction sorry to all you 360 lovers

    PS3 all the way.

    Don't forget it's also a media streamer so no more burning movies and music to disc, just stream them directly from my PC!

    Good man!

    Make sure you get a good quality HDMi cable as it makes all the difference.

    I've got one of THESE on the recommendation of What Hi-Fi Magazine.

    A lot of money yes but you can't afford to to skip quality when your spending out money on quality gear. If your not going to fit quality cables, which are the most important part of your system, then you've wasted money buying a nice big TV/Blue Ray player/Sound System.

    HTH.

    ps3 all the way, had it a year now with no problems and gets used as a dvd player as well so it takes a beating,

    i would give it a couple of weeks then go on ebay, you should get one as a unwanted gift or somethink
