    Sure, he should do research. That's why the over generalization answer you gave him didn't make much sense ;)

    there's probably a dozen or so sites that do these
    you will come across a few that do not include referral requirements
    for the 360 we used Online Reward Center
    for the Ps3 we used Ps34free

    it took a few weeks

    I believe the online Reward Center requires you to sign up for stuff....

    ^ that's the whole point

    you sign up for a few 'free trials' of products
    try something out ... cancel it

    that's why keeping track of it all is important, so you don't get automatically extended in auto-renewals

    we did stuff like Blockbuster Rentals
    tried out some vitamins
    checked into a book club
    Netflix
    Columbia House
    stuff like that

    there's usually 3 tiers, each ascending in complexity or price
    but if you're careful in what you choose you can get through it with very little money invested

    to date, we've acquired :

    an Xbox 360 - less than $75
    a 60gb Ps3 - less than $150
    a Canon EOS 20d Digital SLR - less than $250 (a $1200 camera)
    and our most recent acquisition -
    a 2.2ghz "Santa Rosa" MacBook w/ Windows Xp (via Parallels) pre-installed ($1500) for less than $400 (through shop.free.pay who we DO NOT recommend using as this was a painful drawn out process ... but hey, a $400 MacBook was sweet)
    and the Mrs. is currently working on some $500 Visa cards
    she finished one in about 3 hours the other day
    they're going towards a new iMac for the Puckster :))

    trust me it works

    just be sure to read the sites Terms and Conditions first
    and set up a 'dummy' E-mail account for all the influx of spam
    -DO NOT use your regular email account-

    it's a moot point really

    the Wii is whipping them both

    It wasn't even a PS3 vs 360 argument in regards to what is better.

    One day though...:brow:

    if Shooters are one of your preferred genres, than there's quite a nice assortment on the big white box
