    PS3 or XBOX?

    I have had Borderlands trash my Windows OS 3 times now. When that happens
    you have to do a full install, starting with formatting the hard drives.
    Just reinstalling Windows and peripheral drivers doesn't work.

    Yucch.

    Problem is, I am a Borderlands junkie. I gots to have it.

    Which means I need a console. I don't much care for the idea, but there it is.

    I like the Xbox simply because it's cheaper. You can get an Xbox for $200, or about
    a hundred bucks less than the basic ps3.

    I know about Blu-ray and the other gee whiz stuff. The only selling point for the ps3
    is that all that extra technology *might* make it last longer.

    I may end up hooking this to my 22 inch computer monitor and not my TV. The wife
    doesn't like the idea of a console hooked up to the TV. Family turf issues, you know
    how it is.

    Wasn't there a recent thread similar to this that you actually posted in?

    As was pretty much the consensus then, if you're not all that interested in Blu-ray or any of the exclusives offered for a specific platform, you really can't go wrong with either. When I was choosing between the two, I went with the PS3 because I liked the idea of the Blu-ray, Playstation exclusives like Gran Turismo and the Uncharted games and the majority of my friends had PS3s making it the obvious choice if I wanted to do any online multiplayer.

    Now that you mention it, yes.

    The same question came up a few weeks ago.
    I argued for the PC.

    Thanks for the help.
