Dragon Age: PC or 360?

The eternal question, which platform to buy a game for. Dragon Age, coming in October, will be released on the major platforms. I have narrowed down my choices to the PC or 360. I have a PS3, but don't want to get the game on it.

The 360 is hooked up to my home theater (big screen, 7.1 sound etc). It is very nice for playing games. I played Mass Effect on it, but that was more action oriented. Dragon Age seems to have more RPG like combat. However, I don't think I will be getting it for the 360.

User created content is the reason. Dragon Age is set to be a monster when it comes to what players can create. Continuing what they introduced with NWN, Dragon Age will have all the tools for players to make their own campaigns. They even held a Toolset class for their more prolific modders. That should tell you how serious they are.

If this player created content piece was not there I would likely get it on the 360. I could hook my PC up to the TV, but that would be a pain and won't happen. It'd be nice to be able to get the player created content on the 360, but they have no plans at this time to support it on the console.

No to the 360 for the exact reasons you said

I would get pc, any games like these where user generated content is a major thing, always go for PC.
