PS:Sorry.....my english is very bad PS:I'm a newbie at tomshardware forum !
If you like playing online, the 360...
If you do not play online that much, the ps3...
If you like playing alot of RTS games, PC all the way!
I own all three and play games on the 360 more then my pc or ps3, but watch alot of movies on my ps3.
hmmmm......ty bro.......but what about the other things i mentioned ?
360 tends to be a safe investment for gaming for a number of reasons: First it is cheap compared to a ps3 and upgrading a PC, 2nd the next generation consoles have not even been announced yet, Online community is big and established, 3rd lots of games.
the biggest pro on console gaming is buying used games and renting games.
The only knock i have on Xbox is it did not pick Blu Ray a number of years ago.
Xbox 360 gets my vote as well, especially on a budget. For a little bit higher budget (500-600) I'd say PC. PS3 doesn't have enough games I like, to warrant me buying it. I'll probably get it in a few years when its dirt cheap to play the 5 exclusives I want.
ps3 has more exclusive games upcoming, free online and blu-ray movies. pc has modding support (worth it alone imo), mouse and keyboard controls, blu-ray movies (if you buy the drive) and free online (unless u play wow). xbox 360 has a good online system, big library of games and multi-format games usually lead on the 360.
