PS3 To ps3 or to xbox 360... thats the question.

Aren't 360s and PS3s cheap as hell now? Really shouldn't cost much, I hope you're being smart about where you're buying one (look on ebay).

As for which that depends entirely on which exclusives you care about. If you could go either way on that front then I'd go 360. All 360 games have achievements (some early PS3 games don't have trophies) and third party games tend to run better on 360 because it was easier to develop games for.

That said if you do go Xbox I'd consider saving up a bit more and finding a cheap Xbox One S. It will play lots of the best 360 games and all Xbox One games on top. Game Pass is amazing value too and the first month is still just $1 I think.
