Personally 360 > PS3. First, more comfortable controller, especially for FPS. Second, better online functionality (you have to pay, but you get what you pay for). Third, superior JRPG line up (Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, etc). Third, Halo (best game with friends ever IMO). Fourth, more pricing options. Fifth, better downloadable service.

They're both great consoles, however I have to give the edge to the 360. And in terms of exclusives, they're now even.

Yes, their MASSIVE list of games they've released for the system means thats a big factor.

Quality over quantity my friend...

they're both awesome. Seriously--they both have excellent games, excellent graphical presentations, and turbo quick online play.

a little bit off-topic--on the earn-money side of things, I process user-generated review content. My company does review for everyone and their mom, with Best Buy being one of our clients. The other day I read a review, for the 360 Arcade, 5/5, that stated: "It's way better than the PS3! It has online play, a hard drive, and waaaay better games! It's clearly the best console--I know because I own one." That logic was just....amazing. Not to mention--the Arcade doesn't come with a hard drive. I strongly suggest, if anyone ever feels in-doubt about their own mental skills, perusing internet reviews for consoles. They make you feel smart.

@Bahamut - If I played more FPS I may agree with you...unfortunately, virtually every other genre plays worse with that controller in my experience, and the D-pad is so unbelievably heinous that it's a complete joke that 360 gets all the good shoot-em-ups. Then again most shmup nuts own several arcade joysticks with various connectors anyway...

I got all 3 consoles - and I hardly ever use the 360.
The PS3 & Wii are great machines. Both radically different from each other and offering a wide range of genres / games.
The 360 - its just - meh.

1: The Playstation controller is far more superior than the 360's due to the fact that it virtually has not changed at all over the past 15 years or so.
2: The online play on the PS3 is far better than whats on the 360 since well the PS3 can do more(look at MAG), in terms of more players and the headset is wireless(from what I've experienced).
3: Who truly cares for JRPGs that much they'd choose the console with more of them sheesh!
4: (By the way you said "third", two times), Killzone 2 and Warhawk are better than that overrated sci-fi crapfest. And yes I know Warhawk is a TPS not an FPS.
And 5 and 6 are better on 360 though you pay a little extra for a better machine that will last for another 6 or 7 years while the 360 will not.

Gosh, no Wii Music for them, eh? I guess they'll have to stick with their non-gimped versions of GH and RB.

Blue Dragon is The Conduit of JRPGs. Though on second thought, I guess the qualification for being an good, bona-fide JRPG nowadays is being incredibly derivative and stale with dumb characters. Eternal Sonata is more interesting and is on both.

Yep, a game that no-one bought on 360 is not on the PS3. That'll be a deciding factor to all of one person: Greg Mayles' mother. Though she probably has a Wii already and is completely content with just Wii Sports, Wii Fit, and Animal Crossing.

@Swerd_Murd: I know where the controllers weakness is. I just didn't point that out. It's kind of obvious which console I buy BlazBlue on ;)

@ChronoCross:
1).....I'm sorry, but what?
2) It can do more, but hasn't. And I mean the friends list and everything also is much better integrated.
3).....Me......
4) lol sorry. And I said with friends. Key. Halo isn't all that great alone, but with friends, you get Custom Games, Theater, Forge, and much, much more lolzy moments then those other games. Though yeah, Halo isn't that good alone.

The PS3 is a long term invest, that's for sure. But let's be honest, when "the next gen" comes around with, who knows, games that you can control with your mind (I don't know, just guessing), who will want to play something that's last gen. The PS2 had games made for it up until I think just last year, making it another long-term investment, but the next gen consoles completely overshadowed it. Remember, all this is for now. I think by 2012 the PS3 will pull ahead significantly, but as of now, the 360 is better all around. That's just what I think though, you're free to disagree.

PS3 is better. I know that, and I haven't even played xbox 360. As a matter of fact, I haven't played ps3 a whole lot either :p

I have trouble finishing games.

Well, comparatively, yes, only because your 360 is designed to self-destruct one month after the warranty runs out.

@clicketyclick: ACtually, I liked Wii Music. Unrelated, but yeah.....
And Blue Dragon, though while sucky story-wise still has fun gameplay.

And for the comment above, only the earliest 360 models RROD'd. 2008 on have 360s with a very small failure rate. And the PS3 is a long-term investment. Remember the first few PS3 years? It was atrocious. There was Resistance and.......that's all. Now recently, it has great games like LBP and Uncharted coming out. It's a long term investment. That's not necessarily a bad thing if you have extra cash, but if you're not doing so well, it's a problem.

PS3 first few years was pretty foul. I was pretty concerned for it's long-term viability at the outset....now I know it's safe, even if it's currently in third. As long as I keep getting games I enjoy playing, I'm a happy man.

And like the ones that are already out like Metal Gear Solid 4 (which is better than both Gears of War combined and if you beg to differ I'd love to make you cry), LBP, Uncharted, WarHawk, Killzone 2, Eye of Judgement, Socom, Infamous, both Motor Storms, and both Resistances. All exclusives.

360 has Gears, Left4Dead, and Halo... wuhoo?

@ChronoCross: By "coming out" I meant recent games (08 on). And like I said, the long term investment is begging to pay off. And listing the exclusives doesn't really show anything. Both consoles have huge numbers of great exclusives. They're even. Both great consoles. The 360 just appeals to me more, that's all. No need to passionately defend it.....

Even number of exclusive games on both systems? Maybe. All exclusives on both systems are equal in quality? I don't think so. PS3 exclusive titles are far better than the ones on 360 and that meaning your better off getting a PS3 since most of the games are already on both systems that are developed/published by third parties.

And really most of my list showned was 08' and on I just got a little carried away is all.
Don't worry 360 is not horrible by any means and you liking the console has nothing to do with this its just the PS3 is better than it in almost everyway possible. Only reason most of my friends own a 360 is because well so many people play it online which a stupid reason to have a console just to play with friends online.

Did you just mention MAG (a game not even out yet) as evidence of what the PS3 can do well? Odd.
