Both systems are good. I prefer the PS3 over the Xbox 360 cause of these factors:
• Microsoft nickels and dimes you with the accessories (play and charge kit)
• PS3 multiplayer games don't require a monthly payment like Xbox Live
• Blu-ray playback built into the PS3
The only thing Xbox has over the PS3 is the controller is a lot better on the Xbox and there are more games and some third party games seem to look and play smoother (I'm looking at you buggy as hell Fallout 3 for PS3).
Is that from the order date or the shipping date? I ordered mine over a month ago...called them a few days ago and they said that it would take another 4 weeks!!! I think they screwed up the order cause they said that the order was placed a few just over a week ago when I ordered it 4+ months ago. Oh well. Little longer than I wanted but thankfully I have a ps3 to kill the time till the xbox comes.
I decided to tell them that I wanted it to be used as an STB so that the installer would bring it with him. the day of the install I called Telus to tell them I changed my mind and would not be using as an STB as I purchased a stand alone HD box. everything worked out and I get my 360 right away.
