Here it is folks, talk about whatever you want pertaining to them.


I'm currently playing Halo Reach, on the 360 just the solo campaign. I never really got into the Halo series I played the 3rd one, beat the solo campaign played very limited on multiplayer.

used to be a WoW guy, now I find that game boring and havent played in almost a year after about 4 years of playing. Just started a free trial of Star Wars: The Old Republic, but its almost the same game but Star Wars themed

for Xbox 360 I have played almost all of the Assassin's Creed games (need to play the latest one). I'm a big fan of the COD games (though dont have MW3)...especially stoned I love almost all sports games - EA kicks the shit out of 2K sports imo. Online gameplay is pretty much all I do when I play now.

Angry Birds of course is in a league of its own

I'm currently playing ME3, NBA2K12, and UFC 3. Most my time is being consumed by MASS EFFECT 3 since I waited for it for a few years. Once I finish that ill move onto the other 18 games I have

I admit I'm a cod-junkie but since the new
ufc came out it hasn't left my playstation. I just love how I can just turn it on, go online and have a quick ranked match if I have an extra 10 minutes. Working
on my online record is just addicting as hell! If I lose
one Im chomping at the bit to get back in there and
prove myself haha plus it's an excellent substitute while
the real deal is on march break.

I'm playing FIFA 12, Borderlands, and Black Ops. All in anticipation for Diablo 3. That's the end all, be all for me.

I used to be a video games junkie but I rarely play now mostly b/c of time and game prices. It's hard for me to start a game and actullay finish it, that's why I mostly play fighting and sports games when I get a chance, plug- play- have fun and over. No long-term commitment needed. I would gladly invite any of you to get your ass kicked pretty badly on any of the street fighter 4 versions but my PS3 is in PR and I'm in GA. Just playing SF2, Fatal Fury and Killer Instinct on the Zsnes these days.

I forgot all about Borderlands! It's one of my favorites, too. They released a teaser trailer for the sequel not to long ago.

Borderlands was the first game I ever got "addicted" to. by the end of the second play through I think I had 50+ hours logged. I can't wait for the sequel.

Same. Mass Effect 3 consumes my limited free time I have. Very addicting. It's been the only series I've spent considerable time playing on the 360.

The only game I play pretty much is UFC 3 for xbox. I'm really into AC series though and played all the games. Also just borrowed saints row 3 from a friend so i'll see how that is! I got bored of COD after mw2 and I played a bunch of Halo 3 back in the day. Any new games coming out or already out you guys would reccomend? Trying to find a game to get into play xbox again

Yesterday, Mrs. Money turned to me and said she wanted a video game console. I shit and pissed myself with joy. Now we are just debating if we get a 360, PS3, or wait.... (Any suggestions? I know both have been out for at least 5-6 years....)

To celebrate this renewed interest in video games, I dug up my SNES and games. We got down on some Q*Bert 3, NBA Jam: TE, and MK II. What a magical time it was! We even went and saw Star Wars: Episode 1 in 3D afterwards! It was quite possibly the best day off ever.

I'd go PS3. Rumors have it a new xbox is coming out soon, as early as next year, so if you got a 360 it'd only be good for another year and then they will slowly stop making games for the 360 or quality games at least. Plus, PS3 is not as cheap as XBOX. I have both and I noticed how much better the PS3 is when I bought it.

I was kinda thinking PS3 as well. 360 is an older console, older technology... And as much as I love Xbox Live, fuck having to pay for that shit. PS3 has the HDD, Blu-Ray, 3D.... Any word on the estimated shelf life for the PS3?

Sony isn't talking about a new PS4 if that is what you are wondering and there has been rumors but not as many as their has been XBOX rumors. If Sony was smart they'd wait to see how Microsoft and the Wii U screw up and capitalize on those mistakes kind of what they did with the PS3(free internet, blue ray). Also, I haven't heard of a new PS3 breaking and I know my xbox broke 7 times.....not kidding.

the PS3 does offer more accessories but if I had to make the choice again I'd still go with xbox. I pay for my online play and I'm glad I do. Xbox live never goes down or gets hacked. it also lags WAY less than PS3 while playing online.

Our household has both and the PS3 is used the most. It's got more multi-player friendly games, the Blu-Ray player, and the PS had better "fun" games than the XBOX.

Plus, I can whip your ass if you add me online.

Thanks for the info. I was thinking that's how things might pan out. Regarding breaking, probably every person I have ever met who has a 360 has gotten the red ring of death. I know of friends who got the RROD after Microsoft sent them all new systems! Conversely, I don't remember many PS3 owners having breakage issues. I did have one friend who I believe had some laser issues, but he said it was a relatively inexpensive fix he was able to do himself. This was probably 6-8 months ago, and he bought his PS3 right at the launch.

I too have never noticed a perceptible difference in lag between the two consoles. But then, I haven't played the same game from the same location on both 360 and PS3.... The PSN having been hacked was/is a concern of mine... But I think the odds of them being hacked again would be small. I could be very wrong though.

It seems like more people have PS3's these days. That's another factor. 3-4 years ago, it seemed like most people were on the 360. Now PS3 seems to be where everyone's flocking. The Blu-Ray, Netflix, etc. are all good bonuses too.

When I get a console, it's on man! I will own the hell out of some folks in UFC. Random characters. That's how a boss do!

THPS was really my specialty though! I never met a person alive who could beat me. I was getting 20+ million point combos in THPS3. It's weird though, once a new THPS came out, I couldn't play the old ones. When THPS2 came out, I couldn't play THPS1 because I would try to manual. When 3 came out, I couldn't play 2 because I would try to revert, and so on and so forth. I think the last itteration I owned was American Wasteland....

I own a 360 and have played the PS3 many times at my buddys place but I still say 360 is better. I pretty much only play online and I love Xbox's online gameplay. Never lags (even when I'm downloading torrents) unless the guy I'm playing against has dial up or something old. $60 for a year of Xbox Live is next to nothing...$5 a month is what it works out to, which is next to nothing. I havent used all of its features but I'm pretty sure Netflix is accessible from the 360 too.

The only problem I had with my console was that the laser reader started to go after about 3 years, but neither me, my old housemates or my brother took the greatest care of it...we just let it sit and collect dust lol. Plus transferring it between my parents house (where my bro lived) to my place (when I lived away from home) many times probably didnt help either. In December, I traded that console in for $100 off a brand new console Never got a RROD scare.

The only reason I would consider a PS3 is to play MLB The Show, but I'm not going to buy a system for one game.

I bought the PS3 because of The Show and that I wanted a console when I went off to college. Netflix and other features are only accessible with the 360 if you are a gold member.
