360 Wii PS3 (I own all 3)
360- identical graphics, identical gaming audio, pc media streaming, better controller, better interface, better aesthetics, better games, more games, better price, xbox live gives you more demos/trailers earlier that then PS3 (if it ever gets them), download/stream TV shows/movies from xbox live
PS3- identical graphics, identical gaming audio, blu-ray may be the next beta, HDMI is nice, games suck (right now), controller is horrible (can't recharge remotely, no rumble, sixaxis is an absolute joke and is not/will not be used), unstable (I'm on unit number 2 already), interface is horrendous, can't stream media from pc, online is embarassing, the online store is even more embarassing, price

XBOX 360 Elite - Not just the Next Generation of Gaming
I've been looking to step into next-gen gaming for quite awhile now, but have been waiting for the right time - and the time finally came. I have done much research on all of the systems out there right now (Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3 and, of course, the XBOX 360). For a variety of reasons, I settled on the XBOX 360 Elite.
It has superior hardware, graphics processing and storage capability. It also has the best backwards compatibility of the 3 major next-gen systems available. Finally, it's online service (XBOX Live) has much to offer for a nominal fee (don't bother with the Silver Package, it is practically useless - go with the Gold Package. If you look around, you can usually find it for 10 - 15 dollars cheaper [per year] than the retail price, right here on eBay - which ends up being $35 - $40).
This model (the Elite) comes with a 120GB HDD (High Definition Drive), with 13GB being proprietary for the dedicated operating system (which is standard for almost any hard-drive, especially external). This leaves more space than you'll know what to do with, trust me.
The graphics are amazing, the sound is crisp and if you happen to have a Netflix account (even if you don't, check out the free trial - if you decide to keep the account after the free month, you can get unlimited streaming and rent 1 DVD at a time for around 8 dollars a month), the video's that you can stream with this system are DVD quality (which I couldn't even get with my regular connection on my main CPU).
The game choices are optimal, as you can download the best games of yesteryear (Golden Axe, Contra, Super Contra, All of the Sonic games ever released for Genesis, Pac-Man, Dig-Dug, Street Fighter, Tron, Castlevania and many more) or the hottest titles on the market today (Arkham Asylum, all of the Halo series [XBOX exclusive], Mortal Kombat vs. D.C. Universe, all of the Gears of War series, Bioshock and more).
I set my Elite up in the living room and networked it with an Ethernet cable (I purchased 100 ft of the cable on eBay for around 10 dollars) and lined it up against the bottom panel of my walls, going behind couches and chairs etc. for the fastest connection. If that isn't something that appeals to you, there is also an optional wireless network adapter (usually sold separately) - although I must say that the Ethernet cable is really the way to go (and cheaper).
I have been able to minimize my entertainment system into 3 separate pieces 1) Television 2) HDDVD player (just a personal preference) and the XBOX system. Nothing more is needed. I also feel that the Elite's colouring is much sleeker than the customary white shell, and fits in much better with the rest of my system.
Overall, a very enjoyable and worthy investment. If I'm not mistaken, Microsoft has recently dropped the retail price of the Elite to $299, so it should be even easier to find a great deal.
Don't be hesitant to purchase a re-furbished system, as they are usually in mint / like new condition (I honestly couldn't tell the difference between my system and a new one) and sometimes, even better (superior quality mounting paste for the motherboard, super-clean etc). Just do your research and make sure the person or company you purchase your system from is reputable and that they have some sort of warranty (included in price).
Hope this helps - happy hunting!Read full review

Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite - 120 GB Black
Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite System is the best system I've ever experienced. A 120 GB upgrade in the hard drive allows you to download a whole lot of downloadable video games, themes , music videos and movies to your system. A wireless controller and one Xbox Live headset are included for your gaming pleasure as well. And another good thing is every Xbox 360 game title supports a minimum of 720p, and up to 1080p high definition resolution or 480p standard definition, in 16:9 widescreen.

I haven't got the game yet so I don't know the answers to the rest of the questions. But the item came much faster than expected. I ordered the game before the box and I haven't got the game yet. (Not from the same sender)
Thank you ,
