i want the top of the line system with the best games and the best online features.

i want to play games, use it as a dvd/blue ray player and as my netflix/internets streamer and usb hook up for the movies on my portable hd.

if you want a blu ray player, get the ps3. thats unavailable on the 360. more of our mutual friends play games online through the 360 (but you have to pay for their online services) but the ps3 goes online as well (and you don't have to pay). the netflix application is better on ps3 but both ultimately do the same thing. ps3 netflix supports 5.1 right now but xbox netflix will soon.

simple answer - xbox

best exclusives.
netflix without disc
online is great
more people you know have one (more people to play with or borrow games from)
cheaper than ps3 ($200 for 4gb arcade console)
who needs blu ray when you pirate?
you can play music over games (ps3 can't)
last fm
espn (next month)
the controller is more geared to shooters

i'm no fanboy for the 360, i'm getting a ps3 again next month, but i certainly feel the 360 is a much funner console, especially if you want to play online with buddies.

Starting this week, you don't need a disc for the PS3 Netflix anymore.

You could get a cheap one with a 4gb drive but that really isn't worth it as some games won't fully work with it. Example: Halo Reach won't let you do co-op with the 4 GB model.

If you can find an old non-slim one in good condition that would probably be the cheapest way to go. Some places may have new or refurbished ones.

Other then that your looking at $300 new.

the halo thing is fixed.

with a 4gb 360 ($200) you also get an additional 32gb with a flash drive.

another thing you may want to take into consideration is that some of these games are unplayable on non hdtvs (in terms of being able to read text and actually see whats going on). so that is something to think about.

Dude, you don't want Move.

Well, maybe you do but you know...

I bought my PS3 used and have no issues with it. If you want one that can play PS2 games you have no other option.

I have a used ps3. it's already taken a shit once and I had to pay some guy to fix it for me. buying a used system is like getting a used car, you don't know how it's been treated unless you know your way around it. so unless you really want a system that also plays ps2 games, just get a new one. they're reasonably priced nowadays.

360s have their issues too, but microsoft provides better support and will fix them within 3 years of manufacture, so if you buy a used one, make sure the date on the back is within 3 years and preferably less so you have some breathing room. supposedly the new 360 models are more reliable and quieter but I have no firsthand experience.

$100 60gb. two controllers. left 4 dead 1 and 2.

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/sys/2017301423.html

$125. comes with modern warfare 2

if you do buy a used xbox, make sure they show that you can go online with it and that it's not banned.

Also, make sure the warranty seal isn't broken and check the manufacture date.
