I have the original 360 and still maintain that it's better than PS3.

Online gaming by far. I like the controller better rather than playing with same beat ass PS controller that I've had since 5th grade. Game selection is better.

Just off the top of my head thats what I can think of

Agreed. I have both the 360 and PS3. I've played COD4 on both and the xbox was way better. There were so many people hacking the PS3 it was ridiculous. The connection was also way better on the 360.

The only games I have for the PS3 are God of War 3 and MGS4. Anything else I wanna play is on the xbox. And this is just a personal preference, but I think the xbox interface (whatever the hell you wanna call it) is way better. The PS3 does play blu-ray though.

I dunno, but people were flying around on the PS3 version of COD4. Pretty much every match had at least 2 people in the air dominating everyone. They could move from one side of the map to the other in less than a second. I'm not saying it doesn't happen on the xbox, but I noticed it much more on the PS3. Like I said though, that was COD4. Haven't played MW2 on PS3.

Sony is going to a paid model as well. $50 a year. But gaming online will remain free. Its addition services that will be added I guess. Who knows if that will change down the line though.

So you've owned a PS3? if not, then try it.

Hmm, maybe the PS controllers have always been better so they never had to change it as much.

Its apples to oranges fellas, gotta try both and decide what you like better.

Somehow PS3 is the orange tho; the better fruit that is. C'mon look at the specs
- Bluray player
- Built in Wifi from launch
- Rechargable controller fr launch

I'm not takin sides coz i have both 360 and PS3 (original ones). always been a PS guy but i play the xbox as well.

the only way to really compare them equally is to play the same game on both consoles and see which gameplay is better from an objective point of view.

i.e. I played RE5 on both and the 360 gameplay sucked ass. I dunno, maybe its just the controller but its not as easy to move around within the game. I've also played MW2 on both, its about par. but I still prefer the sleeker PS3 controller. I'm gonna have to try the new 360 slim...

The biggest reason why Xbox Live is better then Playstation online or w/e is

Since PS3 offers free online gaming, everybody and their mom has it so you play with alot more bad people (lacking skill)

Xbox since it requires you to pay for it (There are always deals for 30 dollars for a year of service etc) you have a higher competitve community.

Since they pay for it, they play it more, and they are IMO more game gurus, no doubt you wll still have terrible kids on XBL and FPS masters on PS3

But the overall community supports a more competitive atmosphere. Which is why MLG (the NFL of video games) used only Xbox (and one nintendo game) for about 5 years. They (this year) just let PlayStation in the mix

So to sum it up

If you are competitive and think you are good go with XBL

If you are a casual gamer or just plain suck or dont care GO PS3

I think what he is trying to say is you lack the skillz to be competitive on Live.. so you compensate for it by playing on the PS3 and saying that its WAY better... when in fact they are both good systems ... its just that the XBL community is slightly more apt to glory than PS network... "^^ you seem to be set on a battle of the lacking wits Kurtis.. maybe you should just let it go.... just.. let it go man.. if its ment to be than it will happen.. but no amount of stressing or senseless arguing wil make it happen faster... Just saying.. it will be ok buddy

Why would I pay a fee when I can play online for free??

I'm not a big online or MMO player so I don't really care for who's good or who's not. just personal preference

This is my point, he doesnt really care about online which is why the Ps3 was a good choice for him, if he had to pay for it he prolly wouldnt have gotten Online, which means since

he doesnt care about playing online he doesnt care about being good or not,
now a person who pays for Xbox Live cares about being online so they are more inclined to increase the skill

and as the skill increases so does the competition. The better the players get, the better the community has to get or its an all out slaughter

Numbers aren't everything. Just cause Apple sells the most iphones doesn't mean its the best phone out there; its just more popular.

I'm not easily offended so its all good. its not that I dont care, its just not my type of gameplay. Its just a video game guys.... It has nothing to do with real life. So if somebody is 100x better than me in MW2, it doesn't mean anything. I play different types of games like racing (Grand Tourismo series), RPG's, etc.

the only reason theres better players on xbox is because there are much more players. more players=more better players=more people that over payed for an overrated inferior system.

so far what ive gathered is
ps3 has blu-ray, free online, wifi from launch
xbox has......... better skillz online?

weaksauce argument
