OP check out the exclusive games and see which you can't live without. I have a PS3 but will probably get myself an xbox for halo and forza.

I have a PS3 and I never regret it

Even if you're not going to use it only for games it still does a lot to entertain you. I've had mine for over 3 years and while my friends are sending in their (1st-gen) 360s for RRoD, mine is still going strong.

That being said, I am about to buy a 360 as well since most of my friends are on XBL and I love Halo too fucking much (and FM4 looks awesome). I just think it's crap that I have to buy the 250G version to play more than one game. I mean they go from 4G straight to 250G with nothing else in between?? How about an 80G version or something for those who don't need half a computer's worth of memory to play 4 games.

I have had the same PS3 since the release date and love it, Xbox live is better, but PSN is free and I feel it works the same.

Have you guys heard of LIVE?
How about Call of Duty?
As much as I wanted to get the PS3, XBOX DOMINATES here...
I don't play games alone, only got the XBOX to play with friends

To my knowledge the PS3 doesn't have anything like the XBOX LIVE Arcade. You can download mini games from the Playstation Store but it's not a bunch of old classics you get on the 360.

Orlly? I almost never go into the store to look for that kind of stuff. I'll be shocked if they do.

Had a ps3 ever since they first came out.

All my friends had 360.

Eventually got a 360.

Its funny because I hate the 360 controller but thats just me.

I have both, but I've always been more of a fan of the PS3, mainly because thats what all my friends have. Both systems have their pros and cons though.

If you suck ass at competitive games, play them on the PS3. Super easy in comparison.
