What they need to copy is Live being free. Then, it will be worth me getting a 360.

You can get it for around £1.92 a month on ebay. At that price I couldn't care whether or not it is free.

Coupled with the fact you are already paying for your broadband connection

Nah it's getting to the point where it's not much better to be honest. The games are samey and game demo's suck anyway. God knows why anyone would rent a HD movie

At least playing online is free on PSN

Tbh, i disagree, £40 a year is nothing at all.. And the people who download the hd movies are the ones that have the xbox in their living room and dont want to pay £20 for the blu-ray dvd. Or fork out for a PS3 because they already bought the xbox and dont have a blu-ray player

Go to blockbuster and rent a blu ray for £1 more than a normal DVD. Then you dont have to wait for the download to finish, take up HDD space and inevitably using up your monthly download allowance ><

Let me guess.. Pat owns an Xbox and doesn't own a PS3? Don't knock it till you try it.

Kemp is right the PS3 online service is fantastic now and because it is free then in my opinion it beats the 360.
