Well,the PS3 will surely be much much more better than the XBox 360.
But,PS3 will take another 10-15 months to hit the market,while XBox 360 is gonna be out commercially fall 2005..
Also,I've heard that Microsoft is going to Launch their Halo 3 for XBox 360 on THE SAME date as to when Sony will launch their PS 3 !!..!..well,anyway,till the PS 3 is out..XBox 360 is gonna rule..then things might change..
