that's not a great argument really...

xboxs and ps3s are cheaper than that now anyways, it was just a price ( I remember xboxs being 300 bucks a few months after launch too, so it's not far off).


And I can do a lot more with my tv than gaming as well

and people upgrade computers all the time, you never have the same computer for 6 years if it's a gaming computer.

look, you're not going to convince me computers are better just based on graphics mate, I don't care about them all that much

I don't hate computers, I don't hate computer gaming, I just think that it's a lot easier to buy an xbox or ps3 and be happy with it, over a computer

Games are cheaper for one. Got the new Devil May Cry for 12 the other day. Plus the games are more customisable so if there's something wrong it may be easier to fix or improve it.

LMFAO, yeah I had 5 RRODs and innumerable eaten disks. I bought a PS3 last year and I think I'll stick with sony next time. Where Sony will riskily put out expensive new technology, M$ would rather squeeze the most profit out of faulty old tech.

I enjoy the xbox for it's controllers more than anything. They feel so much better than PS controllers to be honest.

Plus this whole paid vs. free online service argument is ridiculous. If you can't afford to pay the low monthly fee then you are probably too young to be playing online games anyway.

Remember when the PS3 used to get YLOD and broken blu-ray drives on arrival? They both had flaws on release and both consoles have been fixed by later gens.

Hmm. A decent thread by mayslash. If it is to be the PS4, then this might be the signal for the end of all things to come.

I think I am more into the Xbox. Though I have both. But I heard a rumor a while back that paying for internet on it will become mandatory. If that's true, then I lost a bit of respect for them. They used to be cool, man! It would have to be pretty darn worth it for me to do that.

You don't constantly have to upgrade PCs. I'd say maybe every 4-5 years.

Some people do, but then some people have throwaway money

I love my consoles and I love my PC. But my PC easily gets the most playtime.

In which case, have your parents pay for it like 90% of the XBL community.

Xbox's controllers are boss, I hope they make more ergonomic ones for the PS4.

I spend my time in party chat with friends and/or I mute the kids so I don't hear them. Plus you realize entertainment consoles are aimed at all ages right? They'd be doing it wrong if no kids were playing.

I had a first gen PS3, it YLOD just last month. Lasted a fair while. My first gen Xbox lasted a year and a half, to be fair.

Or you can just buy a 3rd party controller for the PS3 that's shaped like an Xbox's

They YLOD was never even close to as prevalent as the RROD. There was a time where projections were north of 30% of 360s being faulty. That said, they did fix that, but the faulty Xbox disk drive was never fixed. Instead, they indirectly tried to fix their shitty disk problem by letting you DL the disc to your HD, relieving the stress on their precious drives.

Regardless, for someone who owned it from the first year with a 12g HD, DLing games was not really an option... and they still eat the disks, something I've never had a problem with on my PS3.

Look at what PS+ gives you, in comparison to Xbox Live. Free games every month, discounted prices on PSN purchases, full game trials, all for the same price as Xbox Live.

I'm not saying Xbox Live is a bad thing, I paid for it for years before I switched to PS3, just that they really need to look at how Sony does things in that one department.

XBL is like 90% kids is what I'm saying. When I went to PS3 the first thing I noticed about the online community(besides the quietness... which is preferred to screaming prepubes every game) was that the people for the most part were more adult.

I have a Ps3 and it's still going strong for about 3 years now. I imagine the price for the next console will be stupid and will need time to go down(years), so what I'll end up doing is when it gets to wear the Ps3 community dies down I'll just buy some computer parts and make one.

The web browser is a big advantage on PS3 too.

I think it's because the people that grew up with the PlayStation, straight for PS1 and nearing their 20s or are above 20, whereas the kids that grew up with the Xbox from the start are still in their early teens.

PlayStation One came out in 1994.
The first Xbox came out in 2001.

You make your allegiances when you're young.

I never said that the YLOD was as prevalent. I just mentioned that they had their issues too. Neither were perfect.

I've always done this anyway. It speeds up loading, reduces heat and prevents drive failure as you mentioned. Plus the new slim models have an upgraded disk drive I think (don't quote me).

I had the money for a 120gb HDD from release so I was lucky I guess but I've had it for 3 years and it's survived an earthquake and has never failed, probably because I looked after it. Both consoles are great but I just enjoyed the xbox more. Limiting yourself to one console just seems stupid to me.
