I don't have an Xbox or a ps3. Since they are dirt cheap now, maybe i should get one.
Informing myself first though...

I have an Xbox 360 and I love playing Multiplayer FPSs (mainly Halo 3). It's true that the multiplayer is much better on Xbox 360, however since you said you don't care for online or FPS it seems like you should get a PS3. Bluray movies and Little Big Planet are two reasons I would get a PS3, which I was thinking about earlier this year.
Depends what games you like I guess. I wish I got a Japanese 360, so I could play the Japan region games. I just have an Austrlalian one though, we don't get xbox indie games or what ever they're calling them.
Hey everyone, thanks a lot for the advice. I've done a lot of research and it looks like we're going to get a PS3, which was always looking like the stronger contender. The 360 is getting a lot of support in this thread but it's for reasons that I don't really care about (online gaming, mainly) One year ago, I would've bought an Xbox360 without question, but Sony has had an unbelievably good year, and it looks like developers are finally getting used to working with the PS3's hardware (except whoever made that Ghostbusters game) I'll probably wait until after Christmas to see what happens to the prices.
There are merits to each console; Xbox360 has a better online service, nicer controller and marginally better cross-platform game performance, but when the the other console's advantage is a bunch of very good, exclusive games, that really tips the scales over to that side. Not only that, but those exclusives (MGS4, LBP, Uncharted 2) are probably up there with some of the best games we'll see this generation. I also like that you can replace the hard drive with any other internal HD (possibly notching up the RPM while you do it)
Well, anyway, thanks for the advice, everyone. Keep the discussion going if you like!
I already have a PS3 so now I want a 360 so i can test my XNA games on that. I don't like the new PS3 though because it has no PS2 support. Currently, I still have more PS2 games than ps3 games so that is a definite minus for me. I also have a Wii, Nintendo DS and a PC so the 360 will complete my collection. Truly the only reason I want the 360 is because of XNA. Even the good XLBA games are coming to PS3 store.

This is Koji. Copy and paste Koji to your sig so he can acheive world domination.
I think having to pay for Xbox live should work against the 360 really, not for it. Even if it was free i can't see how it's a better service than the Ps3. Microsoft just have a policy of charging for everything, even outfits for your online avatars.
I've played online on Wii, Xbox and PS3 and they are all pretty much identical. Wii is probably the best as it's a lot simpler, but you can only access your account from the Wii you bought. But in the end they're all pretty much the same.
I'm sorry guys maybe i should have been alittle bit clearer, i'm sure the games work just fine online. What i mean is the whole online experience isn't as good. For me Xbox live is about playing together with my friends and making new ones. Everyone who has Xbox live has a mic and its really easy to chat to each other and jump into games and socialize. I don't get the same experience with the other two platforms thats just my opinion.
