PS3 vs. XBOX 360 (my own version)

Hey guys, im really struggling between PS3 and 360... Its time for me to get a new console. Ill give a few background details so that you guys can relaly help me make a decision here. Basically, ive always been a fan of the PS3's lineup (im a massive god of war, MGS, final fantasy and gran turismo fan). XBOX 360 is a great system as well. Its got XBOX live, which would be incredibly useful to me, as well as a very nice controller and good game lineup. However, for me, i have a few concerns. I really do question how good XBOX 360's future game lineup will hold up against PS3. I really want a lot of killer apps (meaning, flagship games such as MGS and final fantasy), and as of now, im not really sure what 360 has in the future. At the same time, i absolutely adore PS3's killer apps, but what really is driving me insane is the $600 price tag. Thats VERY hard for me to swallow right now, but if i have to, i will. I just wont like it at all. On the other hand, 360 is very affordable for me, and i can get a few games + xbox live for the price of just a PS3. I really really like halo and gears of war, but as of now PS3 has more to offer game-wise (in the future, that is). Price and practically the 360 is better for me, but game wise PS3 is better for me. Also, availability will play a role. Which one should i roll with guys?

Cliff notes:
Pros for 360:
-Halo and Gears of War Series
-XBOX live
-Price
-Availability

Pros for PS3:
-Future game lineup (this is most important to me over almost everything)
-familiarity (almost been an exclusive playstation owner for a long time, just got a regular xbox recently).

Basically it boils down to whether 360 will be able to keep up with PS3 as far as excellent game titles coming out in the future. I do treasure gameplay over almost anything, but the massive pro's for the 360 do weigh on me. Help me make a decision

I now own a 2008 350z Base MT

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii





Seriously though. PS3 just seems like a better all around option.


PS. I am not really into games but my bro just bought the Wii today, and it's fun for a while. Not to mention it's like 300 bucks cheaper!!!

of course 7 mil for a year compared to the first weekend launches are going to be very different though it is expected for the wii to easily catch up to the 360 especially with those numbers.

wii is going to dominate the next gen war without a shadow of doubt. the ps3 is def going to compete with the 360 but i know alot of people who have shyed away from the ps3 and bought the 360 instead ever since the release of price information.
