I settled for an x box 360 just because of the number of title available in first person shooter and action. moreover good titles in xbox 360 comes for sub 2500, while in ps3 it was at 3500.

the best game for me remains to be god of war 1 & 2, on ps2. chains of olympus on psp is also worth playing, though the length is short. wish to buy the ps3 when god of war 3 comes on ps3. by that time, i will have to save for both a ps3 and a neat hdtv.

wii is the best
ofcourse, we all have PCs at home for hardcore gaming anyway. why do you need a console that gives you more of the same?
nothing like the wii. have been using it for a year.

@A4, there is no way you can play the pal movies if your ps3 is a ntsc one as of yet.
buy a normal dvd player to watch your dvds in pal ;-)

Recently, my 4 yr old Sony DVD player started playing honky-tonky while playing DVD's and i tried PS3 for the same and i realized that it does not play PAL DVD's.

I have a collection of over 150 original english DVD's and thankfully only a few of them are in PAL

Im not sure if this will work but, if you install Linux on your ps3 you will be able to use VLC media player which IIRC is region free.
