PS3 Owners: Will you buy New Xbox 360 Slim?

After Microsoft’s eventful E3 keynote speech, many PS3 owners are probably wondering whether or not to buy the new Xbox 360 Slim. How many of you are prepared to give the new console a run out?

Sony’s E3 press conference is not until Tuesday and they probably have some surprises of their own in store. Today though is all about Microsoft and all the talk will surely be about the new console and the possibilities it offers for gaming.

Personally speaking, I’ve mentioned before that i’ll be picking up Kinect since I’m very interested in the video chat capabilities – the games will obviously be pretty nice too I’m guessing. The addition of built-in WiFi and Wireless N is also a big attraction, not to mention voice-controlled Zune features.

How many PS3 owners are willing to turn the corner and switch to the new Xbox 360 Slim? We have created a poll below for you to have your say on this.

UPDATE: Poll fixed, sorry about that!

I seriously doubt it. I own a PS3 slim and am very happy with the line up of games. The only things on 360 I want is Halo and Live to play with my friends(most have 360's), but I dont feel like paying for online when it is free on PS3! If Halo would just come to PS3(which I doubt it will) I have no need for a 360.

The ps3 slim already has everything the new 360 has and is STILL better as it has blu ray and free online gaming. I personally think MS are wasting there time on their 3rd 360! I used to like 360’s until the new slim ps3 arrived and now I’d never look back! Sony certainly win for me, the new 360 looks ugly too with it’s old fashioned slide out DVD tray lol!! Give up Microsoft!!!!

better graphics with 360!..and i can add a 250 HDD to a cheapo 360Arcade! 360 games are easier to develop, ps3 has unused tech that is always a year or two from utilization. So alot of people are saying "the new box is basically the old box in a new skin", they seem to forget that the only thing ps3 had over original 360 was storage space and free online! the Live benefits will trump Sony's free online anyday. Oh yeh PS3 can play my expensive Blue Ray discs not that I have more than 3. As an owner of… Read more »

I think it would have been better to ask the question "Will current xbox 360 owners upgrade to the new slim version?". I own one of the earlier versions of the 360 and it RROD on me for the 5th time last month, I give up. Why should I pay MS MORE money to get something which is essentially the same? The hardware world is becoming like the software world where they release buggy software at first, and then fix issues with patches. Only in this case the user has to PAY MORE for the release as its hardware. An… Read more »

Well, it's the same console with a new slick body suit, that's all – just like the PS3 slim a year ago, but there the price dropped, too. It is great for new owners that it finally has a big 250GB harddrive out of the box, but it has got nothing that I don't have with my PS3, too. Beside better graphic for Red Dead, of course… Grrr!

HA!! This is a question for retards!! U should be asking 3shitty owners if they will be geting a PS3!! If u have a PS3 WHY would u downgrade to something lower. Why would u leave Jessica Alba for Sarah Jessica Parker (she looks like a foot)? Only a retard would do such a thing!

i have both and ps3 lags so bad,same game on xbox no lag whats the deal????

Probably not. Still not worth $300 bucks. No Blue Ray. The PS3 is enough anyways. The Xbox has no exclusives that I'm interested in that I haven't played.

Boring game line up eh?

I'll wait a bit to see if the quality lives up to the hype. I was burned awhile back with the original Xbox 360 as mine became a giant box of useless a few weeks after my original purchase. Once I see that the device can handle hardcore gaming (something the original could not, what with all the failures) I'll consider it. I need to see more than Wii rip off titles, some of which seem to be in the multiples for the Kinect launch. Also, I hope to see something that actually makes me want to buy it as… Read more »

What a dumb question! Why would anyone want to downgrade their PS3 to a 360 slim? There's no bluray, sod all exclusives, and there's the fear that as soon as you get a 360 there's a better model just around the corner waiting for your hard earned bucks. I'll carry on conference chatting with mates over skype and happy that Sony keeps the games coming. Hell I've got so many bleedin games to complete there's no time to waste on a lesser console like the 360. Give me KZ3 and move anyday.

People,these are games.After a hard days work,you need to relax either its a ps3 slim or a new 360I dont see why there have to be any favouritism.Just my opinion.

of course man!

I've listed my 60gb piece of trash XBAWKS on amazon now!

i hate the 2005 xbox, plastic trash, not true next gen, RROD, makes loud noise.

this new xbox is what i hoped the 360 should had been!

No, why would u? The power thing is still outside it, it still has a high failer rate, no Blue-Ray player thus no movies, & it can’t reach the same quailty rate as PS3 can reach. Plus if Sony puts PS3 games on the PSN, adds voice MSG, & they support Move the console war is over

Ya, the video chat is interesting..wish that was on ps3…oh wait, it's been there since launch

No thanx… Besides, the MS confrence sucked… i mean seriuosly, the only exclusives they have is Gears and Halo:reach… Sony games just as good and some better… Rather stick to PS3… besides I went through 2 360… I ain't wasting no more money for a unreliable company

LarryL

No, redesigned hardware doesn’t magically make 360 have any games that really appeal to me. Gears is the only game exclusive to 360 I have any interest in, and I’m not going to pay $321 dollars not includine the game, to play it. On top of that I’d have to pay $50 a year to play online. Pass. If I can ever get one for free, I’ll take it. Otherwise I’m happy with my PS3.

Why would a new model intice me to upgrade? It still uses DVD9, it still has subscription to play online, It doesnt have enough exclusives (reach and gears are the only interesting ones). Failure rate is probably fixed, but it still uses propiretry HDD.

anyway I have got way too many games to play as it is.

Why would I want another console? I don't even have time to play my games at all. Microsoft didn't even have a lot of great exclusive games shown in their conference. All they can do is just pay for DLC timed exclusive. MS should give back to their gamers, since those people pay for live. They deserve better than what ms has shown on E3.

“After Microsoft’s eventful E3 keynote speech, many PS3 owners are probably wondering whether or not to buy the new Xbox 360 Slim.”

Funniest thing I have ever read on the Internet. I doubt you can find a single true PS3 owner that want to downgrade to a DVD based Xbox “slim”

Bit of a stupid question to ask before the Sony keynote speech has even happened. Perhaps by the end of tomorrow you'll be asking XBox 360 owners if they'll be buying a PS3…

Hey Alan, I wonder if you have a ps3 already? Whats the point of buying the new 360 for video chat when you can do that on the ps3 already?

I'll take one if I win it, but I'm not going to pay $300 for another console. PS3 is more than enough console gaming for my needs.
