He already getting a PS3 you dont need to bash the Xbox360,Geez

DMC plays 10x better on PS3 lol

PSN is better then Xbox LIVE cuz soon it will be good lol

PS3 controllers come with internal battery so there better,until the controller dies after 150 charges,lol

Most people dont use wireless so its not needed in a console

The xbox isnt always breaking down current failure rate is like 20%,which means the vast majority dont break

HD-DVD isnt needed to play games,and some people dont care about movies

As i said hes already going to get a PS3,blatent fanboism isnt needed

1. DMC4 DOES play ten times better on the PS3 due to the fact, it loads on the hard drive, makeing load times a lot less.

2. 150+ Charges and counting.

3. Most people don't use wireless, because every controller they have ever had was wired. I never used wireless, and I was really upset when the PS3 said they had nothing but wireless controllers, because every wireless controller I had ever used really sucked. However, the PS3 controllers are freaking amazing.

4. Hmm, I don't remember saying the PSnetwork was better than the X-box live? In fact, I believe I said X-box live was a BIG step over the PS3's network! hmm, maybe some of us can read on this message board.

5. Dude, face it the X-box will break down on you, and the failure rate is 33%

"Retailers estimate that one in every three Microsoft Xbox 360's sold fails leaving frustrated owners staring at the red ring of death, or worst a black screen that reads "disc unreadable". When compared to other systems, former EB games associate Matthiew G said" I can find many more quote's, but there is no need. My X-box 360 died on me, and my friends. I also work at gamestop, we stop selling our Warranties for the X-box360 because they fail so much. Plus Microsoft has to put a 3 year warranty on their system, just to cover the fact they built a crappy system. The Wii, and the PS3 failure rate combined is 1%.

6. Some people my not care about DVD's, but all I was agrueing that the PS3 is more bang for you buck!! It has everything built stright into the system out of the box.

7. Not a PS3 fanboy. I in facted like my OLD X-box over the PS2. I like the custom sound tracks, and X-box live, but face it Sony came out with a better system this time, and the PS2 was a better system than the X-box. It's just the facts. Not fanboyism.

So I am getting a PS3 this week, but I have some questions I need answered.

1. Do you HAVE to install some games? How long does it take? Can you uninstall the game once it has been installed?

Yes, and for the most part they play better because of this. Less load times than the 360. "Devil May Cry 4" is about the only game that plays better on the PS3, than the X-box360 because of it. It took me 20 mins, to fully install DMC4, thats the longest I have seen an install.

2. I have a really old TV, 20 years old infact. I have played my Xbox 360 on it for 2 years, and it has worked perfectly fine with no troubles. Will I be able to play my PS3 on this TV? (I do not care if the quality is a little worse, or even a lot worse, as long as I can play)

EWWWW. :-p Thats how I played mine for a while, untill I got a DLP phillips 50in Highdeff tv. :-p DLP is the way to go for gaming systems, it has no burn in problem, and is cheap enough for even me to by a 50in highdeff tv. $800 at wal-mart and DLP looks just as good as any other highdeff tv.

3. What are some good games I should buy to get me started?

"Resistance fall of Man" is a great shooter to start out with, and "Resistance 2" is comeing out soon, so it might be a good idea to go ahead and try and find this game. It's a hard game to come by now, at least where I live. Also "Warhawk" Is a great game to get into the PS3 FREE network play. However, you got to find what you like, and go for it.

4. I am getting a special PS3 package from a certain store which comes with a free game also, I have a choice between NBA 08, Uncharted Drakes Fortune, Heavenly Sword or Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction. What one game should I get out of these?

"Uncharted Drakes Fortune" is an indiana jones type of adventer game, which is really cool.. "Ratchet and Clank" is a great platfroming title. "Heavenly Sword" is an AWSOME game, but I would rent it, you can beat the whole game in 4 hours, it's not worth the 60$ asking price. I myself would go with "Drake"..

5. Does the PS3 get dusty easily? Should I clean it every now and then with a dry cloth?

Yes, do what I do, and keep a pair of socks you won't use, and clean your PS3 off. Most system failers is because people don't want to take care of their system.

6. Does the PS3 overheat like the Xbox 360? What failure rate does it have? What is the main error that causes the PS3 to die?

Your PS3 will get hot, but relax, it won't die on you. :-p just give it room to breath.

7. Could you please give me just some general tips to keep my PS3 in top notch condition so it does not break like my 360 did.

BREATHING ROOM!!!! Don't bye the FANS, it will void the warranty by Sony. (Side note: buying a Fan for your X-box360 will also void it's 3 year warranty, so DON'T GET ONE!! WAST OF MONEY). When your not using it, keep it turned off, there should be no reason to keep it running, when your not using it.

8. After my 1 year Sony warranty expires, can I pay Sony to fix my console?

Yes they will, and you will have to pay a $150 Dollar fee for the service. Keep all your info, and your box when you buy it. Keep it clean from dust, and don't keep it running 24/7. Also if you buy it at GAMESTOP, and not the package deal you can buy a year warranty from gamestop for $60.00, and if anything goes wrong with it, you can go to the store and exchange it out for a new one. It's that simple.. :-p

9. How do you charge the controller? Or do you have to replace batteries?

It's comes with a USB cable to plug into the PS3 itself. Any USB cable will do, if it's the correct one. This helps if you buy another controller. I have 2 controllers, and I don't have the charge station, Wast of money if you don't have 4 controllers. Just charge them up, while you watch a nice Blue Ray. :-p

What a PS3 has over an X-box360

1. The Wireless networking card is bult into the system already, the wireless networking card for the 360 cost $100.

2. Blue Ray-it will win out over HD DVD, and your PS3 already can play Blue Ray, and it's a GOOD Blue Ray player. 360 HD DVD player sucks, and its another $147 dollars on top of the cheapest going price of a 360.

3. Controllers for the PS3 already have an internal battary, and allows you to recharge them without buying anything extra. 360 uses batteries, and you must BUY the rechargeable batteries for $20. $80 dollars for 4 controllers, plus 2 chargeing stations at $40 per station.

4. NO RED RING OF DEATH!!!!

5. Free networking service, and allowes you to play games free over their network. 360 it's not free, BUT!! right now, it's a big step above Sony's service. However, Sony is coming out with some new ways of improving their free service this year.

In closing. PS3 IS BETTER!!! BUT, the 360 has the games, however, this year will prove to be a GOOD year for the PS3 owners. Already we got "Devil May Cry 4", which plays 10 times better on the PS3. Also remember, the 360 had a WHOLE year ahead of the PS3. So yes there is more GREAT games out for the 360, only problem is, you can't play them when your system is always breaking down. :-p

Thanks in advance for your help.
