    This is not a debate wether which one is better, and not a hating thread on console either.

    I have a 360 & Wii already. If you were in my shoes, which one would you buy and why? (Don't say shit like "well 360 and wii are teh sux, so get a PS3")

    I just need to know, I can't make a damn decision, both are tempting and I can't decide.

    Do you already have a MP3 player? If so, get the PS3. If not, get a Creative Zen vision:M and save yourself 200$
    Today has been the most beautiful day I've ever seen.

    I have my phone, it plays MP3's but it's not the best and drains my battery..

    But I don't like the Zune's/Zen's/iPod classic's/nano's/ etc..

    So it's either the iPod touch or PS3.

    $400 burning a hole in your pocket? The PS3 dropped in price recently, so it isn't going to go down anytime soon, but I wouldn't be suprised to see an iPod price drop early in 2008.

    If you have a 360, you don't really need a PS3 right now unless there is a PS3-only game your dying to play. The new Eyetoy is coming out in 2008 though and its supposed to be able to do some pretty cool stuff, and there was an article in Game Informer stating that in 2008 Sony will be realsing an update for the PS3 to allow PSP users to stream content from their PS3 and even play PS3 games. They said they're working on how that's going to work with the missing buttons though.

    As for the iPod touch, it depends on how often you're out, or if you use a home dock. I only use my iPod in my car because I'm really not on-the-go enough to warrant carrying the thing around. You could use it around the house too, but wearing headphones for long periods is supposed to cause damage to your ears, even at a low volume, so unless you're getting a dock (in which case why not just listen to mp3s on your PC?) I wouldn't spend the $400.

    I'd have to say get neither now, but I'm leaning toward the PS3, depending on some of the developments in early 2008.

    I love my VZ:M...
    The only thing I don't like, is that the firmware hasn't been cracked...so no homebrew
    Oh, and the battery/usb/video dongle thing.

    I owned the ipod touch... Its cool, but nothing really special. I'd say get the ps3, and go online with that one. It also has a blue ray dvd player built into it, which alone is worth $400+ dollars.

    The ipod touch's only best feature is the touch screen, the internet is ok... the itunes store isnt even all that great.

    macbook...

    Hahaha, no. My family is weird, and I'd rather take the $500 (give or take how much) and just save up for a car, but they want me to open something on christmas, so basically these are the only two things I want (besides a new PC but can't afford more then like $600 on one thing) so..

    The PS3 is winning so far, but I'm going to wait until the poll ends to make my decision.

    I've used both, but I can't decide.

    PS3 looks awesome, but I'll be driving in a year, so I don't know how much I'll use it (I don't have a HDTV so I can care less about blu-ray)

    But I don't listen to music 24/7 on the go, so I don't know how much I'll use a $500 iPod.

    but keep voting guys thanks for your opinions.

    16GB actually,

    It has a lot of cool features though.

    Its pretty damn cool, but I would rather get the iPhone. The iPhone is only $400 now. I'm considering on getting one, maybe you should be too.

    But, (60 x 24) + 400 = 1,840. 60 = monthly price, 24 = 2 yr plan, 400 = the phone itself, 1840 = too damn much.

    Are we all forgetting that the PSP can play music? So what is the point of buying an MP3 player anyway? Just get an 8gb memory stick and fill it with music, to switch out on the go.
