ps3 or 360 for me? ..


Likes # 0

i am thinking of going the console route,

pc is to expensive to maintain, and i already have a laptop, and this never ending securom [particularly on red alert 3] has pushed me away

so yeah, i may be after one of these, in the sales

i like all the ps3 has to offer, but its expensive,

but the main killer is the controllers! i used to love the xbox but hated the ps2 cause of the controllers, the xbox was smooth and fitted the hands, the playstation has those impossible [for me] to reach analogue sticks, thus i have never owned a playstaion

is there a way round this or is the xbox just a better bet? [despite no blue ray, media center capabilities]

also for xp you need the drivers for the 360 pad which can be downloaded or if you buy a new wired pad look for the one that says for windows.

most games now with the "Games for Windows" sticker utilise the pad on pc and there are some others too such as:

RaceDriver Grid
GTR Evolution
GTA 4..

you can download pinnacle profiler which allows use of the pad in any game also
