Although I am a proud owner of the Nintendo Wii, I've decided my home is big enough for another game console. Unfortunately, I can't choose. I've been bouncing back and forth between the two for a few weeks now and I'm still deadlocked. I'm hoping you all can help me decide. Here's my list of pros and cons for each device.

Xbox 360

+ Cost $349 (X360 Elite) + $49 (Xbox Live) = $398
+ All of my friends are on Xbox Live
+ Big library of titles
+ Has GTA 4 Extras
+ Madden looks better on it
- consoles completely die on a regular basis
- HD-DVD add-on is $200
- No Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid 4 or MLB The Show


+ Has Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid 4 and MLB The Show
+ Includes Blu-Ray
+ Includes online play
- Cost $499
- I only know one person who has one
- Developers continue to complain about the difficulties of development

In the end, it seems somewhat even. The gist is that PS3 is expensive and I won't have friends to play with online and the Xbox 360 is missing some exclusives, can't play HD movies and has severe quality control problems. I am completely torn and I'm dying to play Madden 08 and pick some other next-gen titles I've been missing out on. If you've got any insight, I'd love to hear it as I'm completely deadlocked.

Addendum: I forgot to mention when I wrote this last night that Dan was kind enough to let me try out both consoles at his place. Sony definitely won style points for the menu systems and their extras were great. I liked the X360 as well, but wasn't quite as impressed. And this morning my buddy Jason sent me info on getting $150 rebate on the PS3, which is currently tipping the scale in Sony's favor.
