uhmm, sighs, PS3 MAG, 250 PLAYERS AT ONCE., .

Killzone 2

PS3 EXCLUSIVE games such as METAL GEAR SOLD 4, RESISTANCE 2, LITTLE BIG PLANET, KILLZONE 2, Uncanted, GT5 prologue, etc ,later this year> MAG, HEAVY RAIN, GOD OF WAR 3, INFAMOUS, QUANTUM THEORY, GT5, UNCHANTED 2, SYPHON FILTERS 5, more, ?

PS3:

Pros:

You dont have to buy every accessories has an extra eg wireless adapter etc

Lower percent failure rate

Uses Blu Ray technology

Better at Upscaling DVD to High Definition

Support Divx, avi etc direct from the usb port.

More worth it in the long run

Quieter than the Xbox 360

Has a higher capacity disc format that developers can take advantage of

Will eventually surpass the Xbox 360 and wii for first place

Cheaper than the 360 in the long run

Will have more games, and more exclusives than the 360

You don't have to keep replacing batteries for the controller like the Xbox 360

Has game exclusives such as, the Socom series, Metal gear solid 4, Killzone 2, Gran turismo 5, War hawk

Higher build quality than that of the Xbox 360

Built in power supply unit

Non proprietary hard drive that can be upgraded by the user to higher capacity's than 120 GB's

Any off of the shelf laptop hard drive that is a certain format, can be used with the PS3

Has a internet browser

Game voice chat

Will surpass the Xbox 360 in graphic power when developers take full advantage of the system

PS1 games can be purchased on the playstation store, along side other games

Full PS3 games can be purchased on the play station store

Free online, that will only get better over time

Can support up to more than two people in and out of game voice chat

Cons:

Playstation network not as good as Xbox live, as of now

May stop reading discs

May have a glitch that renders the system useless

Xbox 360:

Pros:

More games out at the moment

Better online

Cross game voice chat

Open mic system

Most shooters are better on the console

Exclusive games such as Halo 3, Gears of war, Fable

Most multi platform games are better on the system

Reporting system in Xbox Live

More downloadable games on Xbox Live

Rentable movies available on Xbox Live market place

Easy to remove hard drive

Can use a point system to purchase things from the Xbox market place

Cons:

High failure rate

Suffers from "Red ring of death"

Scratches discs

Proprietary hard drive, offered only in 20 and 120 GB's

Cant upgrade hard drive beyond 120 GB

It seems the hard drive could eventually die

It seems the system's DVD drive tray could eventually jam

Stops reading discs eventually

Can't take a off of the shelf laptop hard drive and use it with the system, due to way the system is designed

Noisy cooling fans

Power supply unit is not in the system, it is out side of the unit connected to the power cord

Power supply unit is large and bulky and may cause problems with the system if not properly taken care of

Uses outdated DVD format

Still have to pay for Xbox live to play online

Can only have two people in out of game voice chat

PS3 All the way.

Remember to tell him the pros and cons of each consoles not just point out which to buy. If you can lay your hands on a wii, go for it cause it hardly breaks. I wouldn't want to buy a PS2 if I were you cause it's pretty much old now and I'm sure if you try some games on the 360, you won't want to play PS2 again except for some titles. If you can get your hands on a PS3, welcome to heaven!!!

@ Squad1:

Whatever you do, if you go for a 360, do yourself the favour of going for a PAL system. I made the mistake of going for NTSC and now I'm scouring the whole of lagos for recent titles for my system. PAL is more readily available at Silverbird and Shoprite, without you having to set sail to computer village or alaba market. Better still, you get a power supply that matches ours.

How much money you wanna blow on it?

PS2 will be the cheapest and its got loads of games.

But an XBOX 360 Arcade may not also be bad. not very expensive, lots of games and got all the features you need.

hope this helps.
