    The main arguments against the PS3 were the price and the games. The price has been dropped and the exclusive game library has surpassed the Xbox's. The 360 doesn't really have that many good games that cant be bought for the PC.

    PS3 has: MGS4, Heavenly Sword, Resistance 1 and 2, LBP, GT5, God of war 3, Valkyria Chronicles, Demon's Souls Infamous, Killzone 2, Uncharted 1 and 2 and a lot more upcoming.

    The main arguments against the Xbox is the failure rate and having to pay for online.

    The failure rate is still high.
    You still have to pay for online.

    I've got a PS3 and a PC. I don't need a 360. There are only 4 or 5 games on the Xbox that are exclusive and even then they aren't very good.

    Coupled with the failure rates, over priced accessories, terrible controller and online that has to be paid for, I don't know why people don't make the logical choice here.

    I also find it ridiculous that the XBox fanboys are now trying to passively back out of the PS3 vs. 360 war by saying that we're the only ones arguing and no longer trying to prove why their console is superior.

    This is because it is painfully obvious that their console is inferior now, and they have nothing to argue for their console. In the past, PS3 vs. 360 arguments could last forever due to vast differences between the two. Now, the only main differences are

    1. One of them breaks a lot.
    2. One of them doesn't have free online.
    Hint: The answer is the same on both.


    Xbox 360:

    RRoD, E74
    beta testing games before they ship to PC =/= exclusives
    Bullcrap proprietary accessories (lol hardrives, wireless mic, hd-dvd, $100 wifi dongle)
    Paying for p2p online
    Shitty d-pad, face buttons
    Avatars and other casual bullcrap (mii too approach)
    lazy western developers (lol halo 2.5, gears 1.5, fable 1.5)
    LOUD AS HELL
    scratched discs
    Playing against babies online


    Make the right choice people and buy a PS3.

    :)

    Oh wait, so all this satisfaction I've felt with my 360 for the last 4 years is actually disappointment?
    Like someone said earlier, if this shit ever mattered it was at launch. And even then it was retarded.

    PCs are, and will probably always be, the best choice. Consoles are only becoming more and more like them.

    My Xbox 360 was from the first shipment (the worst) and I've never had either of these issues. In fact I only had to send it in to be repaired once when I knocked it off my desk
    beta testing games before they ship to PC =/= exclusives
    Bullcrap proprietary accessories (lol hardrives, wireless mic, hd-dvd, $100 wifi dongle)
    My 360 came with a hard drive, headsets aren't that expensive, and wireless is over-rated. I'll take a landline connection any day
    Paying for p2p online
    Even after the price hike it's still cheap. Cheaper than any p2p mmo out there, and you get a lot of exclusive content.
    Shitty d-pad, face buttons
    I find the d-pad and face buttons to be very comfortable where they are.
    Avatars and other casual bullcrap (mii too approach)
    If I'm not mistaken the playstation network has this too, and has taken it farther by giving your avatars houses and furniture and shit.
    lazy western developers (lol halo 2.5, gears 1.5, fable 1.5)
    Pointing out the mediocre games doesn't prove your point. There's plenty of very fun games on the Xbox 360.
    LOUD AS HELL
    I barely hear it.
    scratched discs
    Never happened to me, everyone I know that owns one it only happened when it got knocked over when on.
    Playing against babies online
    You will never escape children on the internet. The playstation 3 is no exception


    Make the right choice people and buy a PS3.
    Make the right choice and buy the console that you like the most and you have the most fun on. Not all consoles are right for everyone ffs.

    :)
    Just saying.

    I'm not a fanboy. I'd buy a PS3 too if I had the money, but I don't. I don't regret buying my Xbox 360, I've had a ton of fun on it.

    It's funny how the OP does't seem to know that microsoft has updated the console to fix most of the problems, and xbox 360 slim has wifi built in, a 250 gig HD and is almost completely silent.

    And the rest are just opinions.


    Buy the one you like the most, they're both good consoles.

    Hands up if you think gaming in general is fun, and it shouldn't matter what console you are on. I remember when Youtube was just filled with shit like this. It still is from time to time.

    When??? Its not the best thing. A you need a great 200 dollar graphic card to play every pc game. B Hardware failure and viruses C When your PC breaks good luck fixing it/Buying a new one.

    If you don't own a 360, then you really have no right to say a PS3 is any better.

    I have used both consoles, for over a year each. I prefer the PS3 because the online is free, I get a few good exclusives, and it doubles as my blu-ray player.

    I don't use it for gaming all too much, a few games I have - tis what my PC is for.
