If I were going to get one for my 11 yr old for Christmas, which is the preferred system?

He has friends that play on PS3, probably Xbox too.

Thanks

I went for the PS3 since there is no extra fee to play on-line. With Xbox, you have to pay to play on-line. Plus, we use it as our Blue Ray player. -Steve

Comes down to personal preference. Both are great platforms. The PS3 you get a Blu-Ray player built in. Xbox is cheaper and is what I have. Yeah you do pay, but it's $50 a year which isn't too bad. ( Never thought I would say that )

I have both, the ps3 has awesome graphics and a blueray player which is a plus but any family and excersise games that has to use the controller while you jump or work out is a hassle!

The xbox360 with kinect is far more cooler! The graphics is not as good as the ps3 but it is not noticeable unless you have them side by side. The kinect is freaking awesome though. You do not need to use any controller playing kinect games with the sensor. Also it has speech reconigtion too. Yes you have to pay for live but worth the money if you play online games.

I like the xbox360 purely because my daughter loves the kinect for the control free kinect games. Haven't touched my ps3 since I got one

I love this hobby!

Not an issue on the newer xboxs so not a valid comment.xbox is more for the serious gamer plus it has Kinect.

Coke vs. Pepsi, Nitro vs. Electric, PS3 vs. Xbox.

I've been Playstation since the beginning and only played Halo on Xbox once (it was really fun). All I can say is I love my PS3. It's the best Bluray player you can buy because of the constant updates and online play is free. If the PS3 was backwards compatible like the first ones were and still had the "other OS" feature enabled, there would be no question.

If his friends have the PS3 then get it. It's like the same advise of "what does your LHS support" when choosing a heli.

I currently have both an XBox 360 and PS3. If I had to choose only one I would keep the XBox.

Gonna +1 Kevin! I have both. I already had a blue ray player so that cancels out the br on the ps3. Ps3 doesn't require a subscription to play online. However the network is crap. You pay for a subscription to xbox and the voice and gaming is easily TEN times better!! Gonna go on a limb and say I think the xbox graphics are a c-hair better as well. I got my ps3 for $100 of craigslist so Im happy with the buy. If I were in your situation I would probably lean towards the xbox.

I also have both a PS3 and 360. I prefer the PS3.

they each have their pros and cons. The PS3 does a few things better than the 360, and the 360 does a few things better than the PS3. There is no clear winner here.

What it boils down to are the exclusive titles.
PS3 has the Uncharted series and Gran Turismo and MLB: The Show

The 360 basically has Halo.

PS3 + Gran Turismo = Awesome

XBox is a nice system and all, and the kinect blows away the Sony offering (move) out of the water, but I still feel the ps3 is a better all round system. I'm still trying to understand the reasoning behind the "xbox is for gamers" comments.

I don't think you can go wrong with either system, but I'd lean towards the system that most of his friends have so online gaming is more fun.

PS3, I"m a hardcore COD nut.

Paying to play = LAME!!!!!!! They make enough money.

PS3 Bluray!! Updated all the time. Plays 3D movies too.

Kinect is cool, my buddy has it.

PS3 all the way for me.

I was thinking the same thing, for me the XBox controller is much more comfortable to use than the little PS3 one.
