HA HA HA Some funny reading But to break the bad news I have had a few friends who have owned a new PS3 and even the slim and returning them because of OS system problems and excessive noise. So donít think the XBox is the only lemon console. I have had my Xbox 360 since they came out and I have suffered 1 RROD and it hasnít missed a beat since. I have just got the new Slim 360 version and it's brilliant, sleek, cool and quiet (oh so quite) The only reason I got the new one is the CD draw sticks every now and then on the old one.

So the age old debate over which is the better console has still not been decide? I am shocked

While not weighing in on the debate, I would like to add that the new XBOX slim has impressed me. Quieter, bigger hard drive, built in network adapter and faster than the old model.

It is defiantly an improvement over the original.

You're saving your bacon by saying Sony, not SOE.

I've recently added a PS3 to the stable. I have to admit, it works so wonderfully well as a media extender when paired with a Bravia tv. I'm also pretty chuffed with the peripheral support on PS3. Though I'm convinced the library, sound and graphics are better on Xbox (for now) the PS3 is really shining as a glorious console.

Isn't it great that we have two superb choices?

I can't think of a time when they were so neck & neck.

NES/SNES were so far superior to Master System & Megadrive it just wasn't funny.

Saturn/3DO were underdone compared to PSOne. N64 wasn't without it's charms though.

Dreamcast (one of my all time favourites) was done & dusted way too early & didn't get the chance to really compete with the PS2/Xbox, and well Gamecube was just crap.

I hear ya , Have had many consoles in the past that I still have memories to this day , Nes I think has still to this day been Nintendo's all time greatest console simply because what it offered in of games and gameplay quality in it's hey day .

But If I had to choose my ultimate all time favourite console I would say the PSX is still the greatest diamond in the rough for sony . So Many great rpg's and action and others across the board . Heck I sometimes dust off my psx and play FF 7 , 8 and so many other games

360 elite plus one for the kids.
Wii for the kids (Zelda for me)
DSi XL plus DSi and Lite for the kids and PSP although i'm not really sure why, no one uses it.

We considered a PS3 but dont need a blu-ray.
