I know, I know. An old question, but I don't really want to cause a pissing match here. As a promotion at Rogers Plus here in Canada, I happened to get a $100 gift card that you can only use toward the purchase of a video game console--XBox 360, PS3, or Wii--just for signing up for cable TV and internet, which I needed to do anyway, since I just moved here. So now that I have an excuse to buy one, I'm pretty sure that I want both the XBox 360 and PS3 eventually, but, if you were me, what would you buy now? To gauge my interests, the kinds of games I like are RPGs like Final Fantasy, "shooter" (for lack of a better term) games like Resident Evil, and other games like God of War. I don't really have any interest, currently, in online gaming, and I generally play games by myself, as I don't have any friends interested in gaming either. What's making the decision complicated is that they seem to have many of the same games but not entirely, the fact that the XBox 360 seems to have stability problems short of the new 65nm shrink, which I'm not sure how to tell apart from the older consoles, and the fact that the PS3 seems to be lacking in some titles currently, but seems to be getting better over time....maybe....and seems to have lost backwards compatibility entirely with the newer revisions. Thoughts?
