i think the only reason i dont own any consoles is that the fact of buy one, foe just one game (ps3 - metal gear 4, 360 - ...idk) is kinda dumb. most of the 'good' ones make their way to PC anyway. plus i still dont understand what these 'achievements' and 'trophies' are for... someone tried to explain it to me, but he was unclear of what you actually 'win' (which im assuming is nothing).

but if i do get a console, it'll probably be a 360, despite the 54% fail ratio.
The achievements are pretty much rep...there is nothing that you gain materially....people just see that you are an avid and skillful player. Quoting a user in another thread, it is "little man syndrome". People need all those achievements shown to fulfill a lack of self-esteem

BTW I will admit that I originally got the PS3 for MGS4...in which I played the hell out of (got big boss rank....yeah I am that good)

I got the 360 just as a collectors item my Freshman year of college. It ended up sitting in a college buddies room for a whole semester (he loved the 360 but couldn't afford one...gotta love Fin Aid Refunds). I ended up going to their room to play my Rock Band

Gamers never really learn from their mistakes, keep buying 360 knowing of its 54% failure rating and time wasted waiting for it to be fixed. PlayStation 3 comes along, everyone ignores it... Yet it's FAR cheaper, and FAR superior in EVERYWAY compared to Xbox 360. I don't get it.

Oh yea, PSN Online is now way better than Xbox LIVE, Firmware 3.00 has enabled many things that LIVE can do...and then some. Plus...it's FREE.
Let us not start another war. Ever since the Jasper chipset has been used for the xbox 360 (Jasper is also known as the 3rd Gen version, I have the 1st Gen not one RROD yet) the failure rate and severely dropped. I've never used PSN so I have no comment on it.

I keep hearing this rumor that Microsoft is planning to make XBL free but I do not trust that rumor, it'd be a smart move on their end though.

Honestly if I had a choice between a PS3 and a Xbox 360, for free (one of the two), I'd take the 360. Main thing PS3 has over the Xbox 360 is upgradability. You can use any laptop hard drive instead of having to buy a 'special hard drive' (Yes I know the xbox 360 uses a laptop hard drive as well).

Oh and you can run linux on the PS3 without the fear of being banned by de ban hammerz!

I don't really understand the Achievements and Trophies either, I mean SERIOUSLY?! I've been playing video games since Sega Genesis came out, and I honestly consider myself a "professional" gamer. To me, I think the "Awards System" is unfair because I just got my PS3 and it's been out for 3 years now while Xbox 360 been out 4 years now, many people have been playing games during those 4 years and have won many many many "Awards" to "prove" they are good, so I just come in and everyone is making fun of me that I'm a noob and suck at gaming because I don't have anything on my "Profile". IMO, The "Awards" system will prompt people to go out and buy the next generation system ASAP! to get a ahead in the awards to prove they are good while the people who wait like me, or don't have enough money will be left out and suffer the "Noob Age".

Ignore the noobs that call you a noob. I get that a lot on Halo 3, and in the end I generally win. (Then they say something like 'you rocket noob' or 'you ghost whore')

The award system could be redone a bit I agree on that but all in all its nice to have stuff to work towards.

I'm not trying to start a war, Microsoft making XBL free is *yawns* heard that millions of times, and if they made XBL "Pay to Use" during Xbox days, why start free NOW? You missed many things that Xbox 360 doesn't have that you have to add to cost, no BD player, WiFi is $100 or $80 depending on location, Mandatory HDD Space Size, Until a update comes to enable more HDD space.

I've been playing many multiplayer demo games on PS3 lately, and simply AMAZED there's ABSOLUTELY NO LAG! why can't PC games follow suit in that department? Playing online multiplayer against people on PS3 is like feeling I'm playing retarded AI CPU players instead, it's THAT good.

Speaking of Metal Gear Solid, I'm a HUGE MGS fan but only played the original Metal Gear Solid on PS1 back in 1998 when I like 9 years old and beat the crap outta that game more than 20 times probably. Sad I never had chance to play MGS2 or 3, but I MAY look to MGS4, I just wanna go in the chronical order of things that happened in the story.

Yeah, I know they have little reason to make XBL free but the possibility still exists. It'd be a smart move on their end especially in this economy.

Blu-ray intergration - Who cares? I hardly watch DVD's anymore let alone blu-ray. With internet the way it is you do not need DVD/Blu-ray Disc's to watch movies.

WIFI - I use my laptop to connect to WIFI with the 360 so this doesn't bother me.

Hard Drives - Yeah, they are rather picky about that. They claim they only use hard drives that go above and beyond the specs of store-bought drives, yet people use normal 5400rpm 120gb drives perfectly.

PC's have to run a crap ton of processes and services, not so much for the PS3/Xbox 360. PC's also use x86 and x64 CPU's while PS3 and Xbox 360 both use a PPC CPU (like the older macs used.. just better).
