A silver account on xbox live doesn't allow for online play. A silver account is just to let people download games, DLC, demos, etc. without having to pay for the gold account. If you look around (generally the cheapest ones are listed here in the deals) you can find a year membership for like 30 bucks-not bad at all when you think about it.

I'd absolutely say xbox is the way to go, but it's all down to personal preference. PS3 gives you a bluray player, too while the xbox doesn't, but yet I personally think the xbox is a much better gaming system. My biggest complaint with the PS3 is the controllers-I find the joystick placement to be just god awful, especially when compared to the incredible (IMO) xbox controller. Next time I'm going to be playing PS3 much at all, I'm spring for one of the xbox style controllers you can get!
