I may get them both but not right away this time. I'm going to wait until the bugs are all worked out.

On the other hand my gun collection is going up in value every year! So I am buying things that apreciate in value.
Thats true too, I still like my computer much more, but for games like Gran Turismo and stuff PlayStation is worth it I rekon!

Consoles are fun, but I get bored with them quick. It's so much better to play at a friends and use his. Besides on consoles I only like sports games. I use my computer for all other types of games.

That is what I want to do for the PS3 but with the push back release date to November 06, waiting for it to go down and actually being able to get one probably won't happen until the second quarter of 2007.

How about a nice dual core, dual processor server instead. Unless They release a good version of Linux on for the PS3(like they did for PS2); then I must get it to utilize fully the powerful Cell Processor.

besides the fact that they released the 360 way to early, they thought it would be a good idea to release the 360 before xmas to get lots of sales, that was the stupidest idea ever, the thing over heats its unstable, sony is smart because they are patient and i believe that it is going to own the 360, give the 360 a year and it will be alot better... thats microsoft for u though, putting something out that w3asnt tested thoroughly, e.g. service pack 2 for windows xp... lol meh it will be close once the ps3 comes out, hopefull they fix alot of the bugs.

Technical specifications is one thing, but a lot of you are missing other aspects that need to be taken into consideration. What about system design, controller comfort, accessories, etc?
