This is an completely incoherent and off topic list I just typed out unedited that probably wont be accepted on this site.
its just a list of games comparing ps3 to 360

Didnt know where to put this topic, so ill try here.

ITS A CONSOLE WAR, this match will get red hot , ITS ON!

xbox 360 info for noobs plays music cd and DVDs games as well as rental services digital purchases netflicks app and youtube app
the internet explorer app is better than ps3 web browser . does not play blue ray and you have to pay for xbox live

Refurbashed original 360 (from eb games) is very sturdy reliable and cheap 80 CAD but loud.
Refurbashed xbox 360 S Or E model are both quiet 140 CAD

360 plays xbox original with very few probelms

Not all ps1 discs work well I have limted experience with this
some Ps1 discs recommended

Tetris plus
Xenogears
Geikioh shooting king

The ability to Play original Xbox games is a massive bonus for xbox which i believe most gamers will like
The PSone classics JRPG selection is what sets ps3 apart and into a higher level (pun intended)
However I feel that most noobs, like most modern people ( but not all), will be disinterested in the ps3's psone classics selection
The ability of xbox 360 to play xbox original games(accept marvel vs capcom 2)perfectly and the poor quality of which ps3 plays ps1 discs Is why the xbox 360 edges out the ps3 for noobie gamers.
However However However if the person shows any interest in JPGS or If they can get ahold of a Ps3 fat system that plays ps2 games ( which i have no experience with)then the PS3 absolutely SMASHES the xbox 360.whichever you choose you really cannot go wrong .if youre looking to get into gaming DO NOT BUY A CURRENT GEN CONSOLE it would be such a missed opportunity and a waste of money

...."Typical". .Ha,I'm referring to me not being patient and doing proper research and/or looking around,etc... I bought a 360black/250gb I believe,for $100,Which wasn't the 1st one I've bought....I Love 360,ol'gal, I'm just glad I was able to avoid the... prepubescent RROD coming of age/party favor stage...and,gee,I think we were a little too deeP for the average sailor some strive to be. :p Did I just type that? ...Ya see,my gal...look,I have to..."Load" and unload multiple times,until she..'it' will accept and Play along. I'd love to elaborate, but I digress...
P.S. Any way I can get a few extra miles outta her would be quite spiffy,She is of the black,slim,mold and heavily worn. Would it be worth the Trouble to bust her Open? All in good spirit Thank You

I don’t own an Xbox One or a Switch.

I do own a 360 and a PS4, and I have no desire to get the newer consoles.

To be perfectly honest, I have been playing older gen consoles far greater than my PS4.

I’ve been playing PS2 and Gamecube games more than anything else.

I definitely think someone starting out should start a generation behind.
Or at least get a system that has been out for many years.

Today, I'd recommend a PS3/360 and 3DS to new gamers.
All systems have huge libraries, along with past titles, through download or legitimate backwards compatibility.

Its also cheaper to jump in, for the system and the best titles each platform offers.
Sometimes it's what you don't do that makes you who you are.

yeah

another great and inexpensive system is obviously the Nintendo Wii ,especially for kids

the system is like 60 CAD most of the games are under 20$

Super mario galaxy 1 and 2 , Donkey kong country returns, Smash bros, Mario kart exc

feel bad for anyone paying like 400-500 Canadian for a Nintendo switch and 80$ a game for their 6 year old

I got a Wii from a garage sale for 40$ CAD it had a bunch of fitness games wii sports and a Wii fit board (and i must stress that these were Canadian Dollars which are next to worthless)
I love wii fit
