Guys, need help in selecting between PS3 and Xbox. Was keen on going for PS3, however Xbox Kinect and rumor that PS4 will be launched by end of 2011 made me thinking. But again heard that list of games supporting Kinect as of now are less and also PS4 will be launched only by 2012 or later, this has made me interested in PS3 again.
I am more keen on driving and shooting games, considering the meager list of games in this genre that support Kinect does it make sense on going for Xbox?

I am currently in the same dilema and would appreciate some input from fellow T-BHP users of PS3 move and the X-Box Kinect.

A bit OT but what size screen would you recomend as I dont intend to connect it in my living room TV

There is no way that PS4 would be launched this year.

In E3 2011, only "Wii U" was announced along with "PS Vita" (PSP2). PS Vita will be launched by year end and Wii U will be launched in 2012. If PS4 was to be launched by year end, they would have announced it.

Expect PS4 by 2012 mid/end or even 2013 as the Blue-Violet laser is still under testing.

Thanks for the input. In that case would you suggest me getting Xbox or PS3 as of now.

Get the PS3. Getting Move or Kinect depends on how much of a couch potato you are

Games on both are nice (non-move and non-kinect ones), but I prefer the exclusives on PS3 (God Of War, Uncharted, LBP series) more than the exclusives of XBOX.

Well I had both..but eventually sold off the 360.

Definitely the PS3, God of war/ Metal gear solid/ Kill zone/ Gran Turismo/ inFamous/ Heavy Rain/ Uncharted...an awesome exclusive list. Besides you get Blue-ray.

As for the 360..apart from Gears of War/ Halo, not many good exclusives.
Better online experience.

Picked up a PS3 + Move bundle today. Was an impulse buy. Had gone to buy an LCD TV, but ended up purchasing the PS3 as well. Please suggest some good games. Have been off the gaming scene for a while now. Back in the days, my favorites were NFS and Commandos.

I bought the Mirrors Edge and need to add some more titles. Yesterday played the Move demo games and they were awesome. Any good titles worth purchasing for both controller and move?

Unfortunately, there are no mind blowing titles for Move yet. Though I heard that Killzone 3 supports Move, but it would need the navigation controller too.

I have played the sports champions demo games with move and its awesome. Last week purchased the same and yet to unleash it. Some games in it includes tabletennis, beach volleyball, golf, archery etc.

Checked in landmark and Move collection is very little.

And very much confused on buying which title. Either GT5 or Dirt or NFS or RPG's? Black Ops, Portal 2, metal gear solid etc.

Need some help here. I will be travelling back home from the UK, for a two month vacation. Thinking of carrying my xbox along with me. Would like to know whether would I have any issues at the Customs ? I would also be having my DSLR with me. The last time I had my DSLR and two of my External HDD's, I was stopped and interrogated by the customs. Definitely dont wish to land up in the same situation.

Hi Friends

Need advice here, anyone suing a UPS for their PS3. I need a UPS to save my PS3 from conking off during power failures.

I tried to use a Microtek 625VA Heritage Gold UPS with PS3, but it just doesnt seem to hold up, although this UPS works fine with my 32" LCD and Tata Sky+ box.

Any recommendations for a UPS would be highly helpful.

get a 1500VA APC ups. Thats the best for your setup.
PS3 will suck in power when game graphic goes up. 625VA cannot simply hold all the three together
