XBOX vs PS3.

The door to a Gamespot in Brooklyn showcases new competition.

Microsoft and Sony have been competing for a long time over gamer interest in their respective platforms, the XBOX 360 and the Playstation 3, but the battle just went up a notch. Last week, Sony dropped the price of the PS3 by $100, down to $299. Yesterday, XBOX decided to follow suit.

Now, there are two high-priced entertainment consoles available for the same amount. That means we can play the compare-and-contrast game! At this point, the appeal of these systems goes far beyond which games they play (especially since most of the good ones are available on both of them). While both systems offer video on demand content, the PS3 appears to have a leg up by offering Blu-ray compatibility, although many users probably don't care, since it's more cost-effective to watch streaming content.

As holiday season approaches (yes, already!), consumers must determine which all-purpose entertainment consul they want in their households. Of course, anyone with $600 to burn can easily avoid this question (or just get a Wii, which is a lot cheaper).

    Xbox Live still has a lot more to offer than the Ps3. Full game downloads, movies, party chat and media sharing all way beyond ps3.

    The PS3 has Blu-ray built-in awesome for movies and games. Free PSN service. A ton of must have exclusives Upgradeable hard drive of up to 500GB for less then $90 also free WiFi included built in. And the Xbox 360 offers nothing not even games. And as for Wii no one buys trash that's just for stupid retarded idiots who don't know WTF they buying. This holiday belongs to Sony. No one in their right mind woulb buy a Wii or a Xbox 360 over a PS3 is just way too stupid to commit such a huge mistake.
