I am a generation behind as far as gaming is concerned due to costs of new vs. used systems, new vs. used games, current vs. previous generation, etc.

I am only really interested in singleplayer experiences, seeing as I do my multiplayer gaming on Steam.

Which console, the 360 or the PS3 Slim, would you recommend, and why?

PS3 definitely. The best SP experiences of the current gen are there imo.

PS3. Better sales and more single player worthy exclusives.

Though if you're a fan of Gears and Halo above all else, their campaigns are awesome on the 360. It's also cheaper.

PS3 has better SP games in my opinion, Xbox caters more to multiplayer games. I rarely play SP games on Xbox.

PS3 by a fair margin.

I used to say 360 as I find it to have a much better controller, but of recent the fan's been almost (literally) as loud as my DustBuster.

I play mostly all my games now on my PS3. Plus I'm a bit pissed at MS for what they tried to pull at E3.

PS3 for single player which is why I always purchase each Playstation at the end of the gen.

Buy second hand PS3.

Rent all the exclusives.

Sell second hand PS3 after 2 weeks.

PS3 has the best exclusives, and is best for single player. Xbox 360 is better for multiplayer and online.

Easy choice PS3. Almost everything about PS3 is worse than 360 but you won't know the difference if you never played a 360. More important, you haven't play jack s**t modern games. Buy a PS3 and get PS+. You won't be in the camp that's like, "I play every game the day it comes out so PS+ is a waste." You'll be immediately inundated with more games than you could possibly play and beat in a month and each month you get more and more.

And these aren't like a*s crack quality games. They're good AAA caliber stuff. Everything better about 360 is ruthlessly crushed by PS+ for people that don't buy a ton of new games or haven't played most of what PS+ offers.

Plus, unless you like shooters, PS has a better exclusive library.
