the PS3 is hard to make games for but the developers are catching up and by next year the PS3 should have more good games (Mercs2, Killzone2 (halo killer),Gran tourismo 5,metal gear, etc this is all according to G4's attack of the show. but my ps3 is aewsome i have been playing call of duty 4 online 4 the past 3 daysCurtyV22 (12/4/2007)ha, it really ain't easy FenderBender, almost hard as gettin out on the water!!!
True, the only problem I see is that PS3 really doesnt have a great selection of games, where the xbox does. But you do have to pay a yearly fee of like 40bucks to play online with xbox. And the PS3 is pretty badase, not gonna lie!
poker_fisher101 (12/5/2007)Make sure when you go and get the PS3 you check that it has the Back-wards compatibility. I know the 20G version doesn't support it, but the 60G and 80G both support the back-wards compatibility. I'm not sure with the 40G. The back-ward compatible PS3 play both the PS One and PS2 games
The Xbox 360 Does have more games but the PS3 is very quickly catching up. With the release of Call of Duty 4 and Assasssins Creed the PS3 has become dramatically better. Motorstorm is a really good racing game for the PS3. Best thing to do if you want to get him racing games is to go to EB Games or Gamestop and look in the $9.99 and under section. I got my little brother a hotwheels racing game from there for the PS2 and he never stops playing it.
I hope this helped.
