    That's the majority I play on my PS3. But the 360 doesn't have any majority over the PS3's online FPSs. But I'm not sure about the same for the Wii.

    it has more than halo ill just say ones i can remember top of my head and dont get me started coz most games that are on ps3 are multi format

    Cod 4
    Rainbow 6 Vegas
    Team Fortress 2
    BlackSite
    Call Of Juarez
    Medal Of Honor Airborne
    Quake 4
    Prey
    Shadowrun
    Soldier Of Fortune Payback
    Unreal Tournament 3 (not out yet)
    Turok (not out yet)

    some of them are better than others but there are more FPS like Far Cry and Bioshock

    a lot of decent games on 360 tho that arnt FPS
    tell me lots of ps3 FPS and we will see that most are multi format not to say there isnt a lot of multi format 360 games

    PS3 FPSs:

    COD4
    Blacksite
    Ghost Recon
    Rainbow Six Vegas
    Restistance
    UT3
    Orange Box
    Fear
    Medal of Honor Airborne
    Time Crisis
    Time Shift
    Soldier of Fortune
    COD 3
    Haze (coming soon)

    At the least 2 of those FPSs aren't worth a buy imo.

    We can all agree that the PC kicks all 3 of the consoles' asses combined 100X over.

    so far the only game I'll ever buy a PS3 for is FF13... every other game is going to be on xbox.. and thats only because of the fact that the sony pres. was stupid and didn't sign the exclusive rights to the system...
    I love sony to death, and have both the old systems. but when I have to get a new tv just to play the game right... whats the use in that? IMO.

    Wasnt saying those were all good games just ones i could think of but all i see is about 2 exclusives to the PS3 Resistance and Killzone

    BTW isnt Socom a 3rd person shooter so is Ghost Recon thats why i didnt include it
    Just saying that most PS3 games are multiformat

    i agree PC kicks ass 100000000000x more than any console cept for nintendo DS lol

    i think that even if a game is out on a console the pc version will be 100x better look at Gears of war and COD 4 for example

    Both Socom and Ghost recon go into first person, you won't find a serious ghost recon who plays in third person online.

    Only 2 exclusives?

    Resistance
    Killzone
    Haze
    UT3
    Socom
    Time Crisis

    oh, i can play it on mine... but, I can see only half what they type and what is shown... Adjusting just makes the game look stupid. IMO.. So I'm only going with the PS3 if I get a new tv... I just don't feel like playing it like I'm a retard... crossed eyed and all...

    You're not the only one. Sony will has 2 games worth buying - but they're not out yet. FF13 and MGS. I own 2 PS3s and they have an inch of dust on them. XBL is by far the supierior multiplayer format - but you gotta pay for it. Also it's good that 90% of people w/XBL have microphones.

    I agree that PC wtfPwns consoles - but I XBL is starting to grow on me. If you have a mic for a pc, you usually have to use something like Vent. Mic on the console only allows you to talk to teammates, and often doesn't let you talk to them while you're dead. I hope windows live picks up pretty soon.

    Eh there are many picture settings on the PS3, maybe you need to relook. =/, my screen has never looked retarded. I've played it on HDMI, S-VIDEO, and COMPOSITE.

    Gran Turismo 5 and Metal Gear Solid 4 are ps3 only.

    And you still have to buy a new tv to play the games properly on 360.

    Apparently you haven't played Heavenly Sword, Resistance, and Warhawk. Uncharted and Ratchet and clank and UT3 are also killer games. Maybe you should check out the new Sony list of games coming out...There are so many games coming out worth playing.

    but for some reason my tv is fine with the 360 and wii.. but hooking up a ps3 and the tv says no.. then when I mess around and make the ps3 look ok, the 360 looks shitty...
    and as for gt5 and MGS 4.. never cared for them at all... but like I said... IMO

    Try adjusting the picture settings on the ps3, instead of the TV.

    FUCK everyone who wants to buy a console for 2 games GTA and Metal Gear its so stupid getting a console for only 2 games plus GTA is out on 360 also

    Fuck everyone who cant see that the DS is the best console out there well hand held

    I hate how ps3 owners try to say that its got better games when most are clearly MULTIFORMAT like FIFA AND COD 4

    Not to mention my friend who has a ps3 cant play mulitplayer on some of his games coz theres hardly a match
    I hate how ps3 owners say there online is free but its ip to the developers to implement servers like EA and thats why they sucks so bad at least microsoft keep the servers up to date and running although at crimbo the whole xbox live was fucked do to the amount of users trying to join lol

    least they said they would try to fix the servers and xbox live for future i hardly lag on xbl and its not coz i have an amazing connection

    I think you need a chill pill and try to reexamine what you're talking about. I think I'm backing out of this thread.

    whenever my father comes back down I'll steal the ps3 for a night and try it again... But IMO for me, the only games I want come on both systems. I was all for buying a ps3 until I heard that the old pres. goofed and did what he did. :shadedshu

    Seriously tho, your PS3 fanboyism levels are reaking. Its not the best console, hell none of them are good its just the 360 has the best online service and games just live it sheesh.

    Who said the ps3 versions were better? And nobody mentioned GTA4 either. I mentioned GT5, as in Gran Turismo 5.

    I got the ps3 because it makes a great all around machine. It's a great for streaming media from your computers, a great Bluray player, great upscaling DVD player, and it also makes a great internet/home use computer, when you load Linux on it. All that, AND it plays games. Works out to be a great value for me.

    And I flatly refuse to pay to play games online. If the game is online and cross platform, I either buy it for my PC, or if that's not an option, I buy it for the ps3. 360 is my last choice for an online game, because I'm not paying for Xbox Live Gold. I think it's stupid to not only buy the game for 60 fuckin dollars, but then also have to pay to play it online. MS can kiss my ass on that.

    If a cross-platform game isn't online, I look for it on PC first, and if not, I just buy the one that's cheaper.


    EDIT: In case you couldn't tell, I own both consoles. I actually like them both as well, but for different reasons. I just hate XBL. And I hate when people bash products they know little to nothing about.

    I don't think I've said it's the best console the entire thread. Wait let me check just to make sure. Nope, I didn't. However, I disagree, I think they're all good. It would be a sad day in hell if there was only one console.

    I just don't like people who come in a thread like this and start talking about a product they really know little to nothing about.
