I have both and i say you should get xbox. On ps3 the updates take up to 3 hours!!!! But on xbox they take 5-10 minutes. Playstation Network is free but it is extremely slow and lags allthe time it always pisses me off. Xbox is 3 times faster than ps3 ad plus Xbox has all the games ps3 has and more. If you buy ps3 you cant buy amazing games like Forza and Halo. Also alot more people have Xbox so youll have alot more frieds that have it.
