    My current favourite is Excel 2007; I'm waiting for Excel 2010 (infinite levels, I'm told...). The graphic animations are not 'super',and the plot is a bit empty, but I'm far from having gone through all its' potential after all these years...

    I switch between reach and black ops, though I think reach dominates my "playing" field. I am probably going to buy MW3, halo anniversary edition, and BF3. I love halo, its without a doubt my favourite game.

    Halo, is simply awesome. I remember playing it when it first came out. I was ten. I had no clue what I was doing. Lol

    Maybe I'm weird, but I didn't enjoy Halo (the first one) that much. I just found it really boring...

    I play all kinds. Just got the system 'battlefield 3 ready' so i'm all set for a game-a-thon with whatever. Took it a step further and overclocked everything a bit, so it's gonna kill it for sure.

    I strongly disagree. Can I ask why you don't appreciate it? If you give me a legitimate reason I would understand, but generally (and I am not accusing you) people just say halo sucks, and hate it.

    Xbox for sure. And don't flame me for my reasons, what I am listing, is things PS3 doesn't have, whats better or worse for each console can't really be proven, so I'll leave them out for now. Why I prefer Xbox:

    Kinect - no controller, you control the game with your body, there is now hundreds of kinect - compatible games to choose from, including my personal favourite; Starwars.

    Party Chat - Allows you to vocally communicate with up to eight other xbox live users, and it does not matter if you are playing the same game or not. You may stay at the xbox menu, sign in and still be able to talk to people with out ever starting any console application.

    Xbox 360 uses a better GPU (graphics processing unit) than the PS3 does - don't try to argue that fact. The XBOX 360 GPU uses a processor clocked at 700 MHz, with 512 MB of GDDR3 ram, whereas the PS3 uses a GPU clocked at 550 MHz with 256MB of GDDR3 ram.

    Exclusive titles:
    Gears of war (all of them)
    Dead Rising (original)
    Forza 2, 3 & 4
    Fable
    Halo (1, 2, 3, wars, ODST, Reach, Anniversary edition)
    Numerous other Xbox Live arcade titles
    Call of Duty DLC's also come out a month (in some cases it has only been two weeks) earlier than the PS3 release

    Cons:
    You have to pay $50 CDN a year for Xbox live gold, but silver is free (obviously you get less features with the silver version of xbox live)

    What I think:
    I think $50 a year is worth it. I have played PS3 before, and I love it I have to say, but when I was playing Call of Duty on the PS3, I was not impressed. There was a lot of lag spikes (when the game momentarily freezes) based on my various experiences playing the PS3, I would say that the online quality is much better on the Xbox. It is much better in fact, the voices never lag or cut.

    Other stuff: Xbox does not get the red ring. The new "slim" version of the 360 has a different ventilation system. And I haven't heard of one case where the XBOX 360-s got the red ring.

    Oh, upon further reading, the XBOX 360 also has a better processing unit, which features three 3.2 GHZ cores, whereas the PS3 has a CPU which features a single core clocked at 3.2 GHz.

    I am totally with the xbox crowd. For me the Kinect ( when I get it ) is going to be amazing. I keep hearing how they are going to implement the voice stuff into shooters and such. It is going to add a whole new level to games i believe.

    Xbox live for me is worth every penny.

    Anyone into pc gaming that is current on mobile graphics cards? I am looking to build a laptop in the near future, and want to be able to play some current games.

    Fifty, on the 360 having a better processing unit, I believe the PS3 actually has 7 cores/threads. It actually has a lot more processing power than the 360. So far though, I don't think anyone has really taken advantage of it though.

    Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Doom one and two, borderlands. That's all, goodnight. IMO the best games ever made.

    after having played every first person shooter out there Halo was dissapointing to me, you get dropped off by the ship in the beginning and theres nothing there, too much walking or driving to get anywhere, the scenarios were predictable. i found myself using cheat codes to liven things up, Halo wasnt for me. and at 50 bucks i expected more.
    Deus Ex and the Fallout series ive had the most fun with.

    Just picked up Arkham City and 2 copies of Battlefield 3 (one for me one for my teen son). Haven't played either yet, but Adam says Arkham is sick.

    Bored with CoD at this point, so not planning on getting MW3. I've read it's mostly a rehash and not worth it.
