I know MOST of the PRO'S and CON'S of each system, but whats the probablity of the 360 having the ability of backing up games? that would factor my buying, because im 80 percent positive I can still get a PS3 pre-order... but would my money be just as well spent on a 360? or is it just pure prefrence(sp), and if there are any topics like this i havent found them yet, so please link:D Thanks For all opinions Justin

Patience Grasshoppa, If the PS3 is something you are truly considering then I would at least wait until Europe has gotten their hands on some units. I'm sure by then there will be all sorts of horror stories about them,,,,, and well if there ain't then you know you are good to consider one a little more seriously then.

But to answer your question? 360 games can be backed up and played now but with the cost involved and technical know how needed at this time you might wan't to wait on that as well.

As far as money spent ,the Xbox 360 is a great deal and if you're not sure if you wan't to chunk out the change for a certain game, just remember you can rent a game for about $6 for 5 days in most areas I've seen and if you see that you would play the game more than a month then you know the cost would be justified to buy it($40 to $60 for new releases).

well you can typically back up 360 discs, for now and its still a rough process, and they expect the ps3 to be a battle as well, like more security encryption of thier disks.
