Over 35yr female here. Never owned a console until this past year when I picked up a Wii. Love it, all my friends love to play. They bought me Guitar Hero III for my B.D. in november.....I'm totally addicted. So much so, that I would love to get Guitar Hero II and also would like to get Rock Band. So, I've been trying to figure out if I should get an Xbox 360 or a PS3. The +/- seems to be:
XBox +: both games available for 360. Can use guitar from GH for Rock Band (?...I know GHIII guitar is ok, I assume GHII guitar is also compatible). Seems to offer the most games for a platform. Bigger online community, though I'm not sure I would use this; don't need to buy HDDVD as I already have a stand alone Toshiba XA-2; brother in law has old xbox so could play his games at my house
Xbox -: not wireless; RROD; brother in law has old xbox, so may be over more and hog the system
PS3 +: can use also as BR, as I haven't bought a standalone. Wireless.
PS3 -: doesn't appear to support GHII...what I've read says GHII was released just for PS2 and Xbox--is this correct?; can't use GH guitars with Rockband
So, are my pluses and minuses correct? It seems to lean toward the XBox. If that's the best console for me, which one should I get? I might buy something like Madden or NHL hockey, but really doubt I'll ever play something like Halo, etc; so keep that in mind when you make your recommendation. Thanks for the help!
