So we just got a 360 today Very Happy but it does not have a wireless router or a memory stick.

So my question. Can you connect a Blackberry to a 360 to get a network? we just need to sign in and stuff. Not doing a lot of downloading. Going to pick up a wireless rounter soon.

Sorry no, you cannot tether a blackberry to a xbox 360. The wifi is not transmitting out.

Also try and google your query to see if anyone has created software to work around it.

The first time I ever heard about tethering was on this site. At first I thought it was real cool until I looked into tethering programs and data caps.

So now I think anything is possible.

I own the xbox 360 but I have to say PS3 is better right now since HD died and PS3 has Bluetooth.

Also, www.cnet.com/cheapskate has the wii for 174.99 today (9/30/09)

yeah memory. In my strip center there is an independent video game dealer that sells everything: atari, nintendo, and all the new stuff. He said they stopped selling either the 60 or 80 GB PS3 or something like that, it had a laser that would read old PS2 and PS games so they discontinued it. They still sell for like 300 bucks!

The reason Sony has so many versions of the PS3 is because they aren't selling worth anything, so they are confused and make a ton of different versions hoping one will catch the publics attention. Meanwhile the Xbox 360 is refining Xbox Live and making it the best service ever offered by any of the major video game companies, and snagging exclusives (GTA Downloadable stories, Metal Gear Solid title, Left 4 Dead 2).

PS3 is better because

1) Already has a wireless router
2) It can play Blue Ray
3) Controllers are wireless, and you plug them in to power up

Most 360 games are aslo available for PS3.

I like both systems for different reasons. Smile

The PS3 does not have almost the same titles as the 360. because the 360 has two complete expansions to GTA IV that the PS3 doesn't have. Fallout 3 has a bunch of expansions that are 360 exclusives, and Left 4 Dead 2 is an Xbox Exclusive.

Not really a Fallout or a Left 4 Dead girl, but I have to admit I had a lot of fun this weekend downloading live games and playing them.

The personal thing that would drive me nuts is that some games come out months if not a whole year on the 360 before coming out on the PS3. Bioshock and Ninja Gadien 2 would be two good examples. I also remember skate took a couple months to come to the ps3 and in doing so you had two less people you could play online with.

Yeah I guess that would be annoying. I'm a pretty patient person. But Bioshock was Surprised . I can't wait for 2 to come out.

you forgot that the xbox can be modded and you can burn your games for free.

i have over 45 games that have been FREE Very Happy

so in my eyes xbox>>ps3 because free games is a bonus! Very Happy
you can charge your xbox controllers with the charge and play kit that is $20 bucks. I have 3 wireless controllers with the charge kits for when they die.

I wouldn't brag about burning games.

Yeah there is the charge and play kit but for PS3 it's free.

Don't get me wrong, I like my 360. I like the fact you can get achievments for the games.

But the PS3 also has the controller that senses movement.

I just got my 360 and already enjoying it. Both are great systems.

why? free games is better than paying $60 per game. I would recommend modding the xbox and "trying" out the games before you buy them.

yes I know this, it should be included because the price was so steep for the ps3. now they are a reasonable price.

trophies, achievements, same thing. keeps me motivated to keep playing the game.

and the motion sensor for the...

Well I use a game rental site, so I don't have promblems spending $60 a game. I play a game for about a week or two and I beat it and then pass it on.

XBOX 360 is alot better on my opinion due to Netflix deal with xbox to stream movies to ur tv instantly\.. xfm internet radio deal coming soon is sweet . um games on xbox 360 are better by far and xbox live can't be touched by anything ps3 has .. and the new project NATAL system for 360 is going to be bad a$$ just youtube project natal see for yourself ..blueray is all sony has and i dont think its worth the other thing you will miss out on with 360 plus microsoft is more than likely looking to do something with blueray soon u just never know .. Cool

I wonder if they will create a blue ray driver?

That would be cool.

Um you can watch Netflix on your PS3. I know I just got a 360.

But yeah, I'm enjoying my system. Already downloaded some games with X Box Live but I still think

PS3 is more everything system and 360 is more of a game system.

Can't wait until they add facebook to 360 though.
