Video games are increasingly realistic and entertaining. Two consoles at the forefront of video games are the PlayStation 3, and the Xbox 360. Sharing similar specifications in their technological build, these two consoles are capable of producing games that often mirror each other. One difference between the two consoles, however, is the inclusion of the blue-ray drive in the PS3, making game discs incompatible on the rival systems.


Consider the PlayStation 3 game you would like to purchase.

Refer to a comprehensive list of Xbox 360 games (Check Resources for the link). Check to see if the title of that PS3 game is listed among the catalog of Xbox 360 games. If so, you will be able to play that PS3 game on the Xbox 360.

Purchase the Xbox 360 version game, via visiting a retail store or by visiting an online store from your personal computer.
