Better selection of games. Streaming media. Xbox Live. A controller that doesn't give you "The Claw" after using it for ten minutes.

Of the comparisons i've seen on Gamespot where games are on both formats, the Xbox usually wins. Just because the console is more powerful doesn't mean anything, unless the game developers take advantage of that.

I don't know about the lags or whatnot.

My brother is on net play for Red Dead Redemption, James bond, Boarderlands, and another I can't think of. Never had issues. I have heard people complain about the Xbox internet. Meh I guess it's a personal preference type of deal. i've always been partial to he Nintendo though. Having owned each system, and still have them is a plus for me.

Never had any trouble with PS3 games on the network aside from UFC 2010, but from what I've read there were problems with that on the Xbox as well.

Personally I like my PS3 better than what I've seen on my nephew's 360. The PS3's controller doesn't weigh twenty pounds, and its rechargeability comes standard. I don't have to pay extra to use their network service. Can play Blu Ray movies. And with the Blu Ray format for games you can store more information on PS3 discs, meaning for RPG games, you don't have to switch out discs, unlike the Xbox. And biggest issue, my nephew had to get his first Xbox 360 repaired twice, then replaced it, then had to replace that one all in the last three years. I've read they fixed a lot of the issues with the RROD, but still...

Negatives for me... can't stand the PS3's wireless headset. The 360's wireless headset is better. The 360's tray loading for discs means never having to touch the bottom of the disc. Not a major issue, since the PS3 discs come with that special protective coating that Blu Ray discs have, but it still annoys me.

Plus you factor in the Xbox's lack of support. How many times do you have to get your system fixed before you buy a PS3?

Still got my NES, SNES, N64, Game Cube and Wii.

(oddly though, i'm more of a Sega fanboy simply due to the MegaDrive/Genesis)

My Xbox controllers don't weigh twenty pounds, I use wired controllers.

Only RPG-like games i've played in recent years are Knights of the Old Republic, Morrowind and Oblivion. I'd rather scratch my eyes out than play Final Fantasy games, obviously millions disagree with me though.

From what i've read and seen of the gameplay, it's what the Smackdown vs Raw series should be aiming for as it's closer to No Mercy on the N64. I saw one of the "new features" of the new SvsR game will be the ability to throw weapons... you could do that back in 2000 (or whenever it was) on No Mercy.

You have just become my new best friend. I love my RPG games, but Final Fantasy was horrible.

I don't like RPG games, but there are occasions (like I previously mentioned) that have RPG-like elements which catch my attention.

Lack of support? Call them up, "RROD? Send it to us and we'll fix it/replace it". That's good support in my eyes.

I was referring to the non liking of Final Fantasy.

But if they could make it right the first time you wouldn't need it replaced.

As one of those "millions" you mentioned, I'm afraid that on this we'll have to disagree. KOTOR was good, I'll give it that, but I could not get into Morrowind or Oblivion as much. And considering that I've beaten a majority of the "main" Final Fantasy series, I'll admit that I may be a bit biased in my opinion. Which leads me to say that in my opinion, Final Fantasy VI is the best RPG ever. It's not everyone's cup of tea, I know...but to this day that is the only RPG I can boot up after not playing it for several months to a year and still know where everything is and what order to go in without needing to talk to people.

For me, as someone with both a 360 and PS3, I generally see little difference in performance (that is, gameplay or graphics quality). A year ago, I'd probably have given both to the 360, but the PS3 games do look a bit better now (though I still feel that most games feel more "natural" on the 360... but even that is a negligible difference).

Frankly, for me, it has and always will come down to the player base. My family and closest friends are overwhelmingly 360 players. Probably due to the fact that the 360 has been out longer (but also maybe due to the price difference). So, I have a choice between buying something like Red Dead Redemption for the PS3, where I know literally no one, or the same game for the 360 (where I know at least 3 or 4 people that want to play with me)...

Well then, the choice is clear

FFIV and FFVI are great games. When I was younger, I was also big on FFI (can't seem to get into that now). Never been able to get hooked on FFVII or later though.

The PS3 has had it's fare share of faults too ya know. The very first console I had break down on me was my PS2, so I put my foot through it:



I haven't bought, and wont buy, a Sony product again. It actually says alot about the products of today when they don't last as long as they could due to money hungry companies. My first Commodore 64 still works 20+ years later, as does the TV I used to play it on.

I'm not a fan of the "Japanese style", if that makes any sense. I simply can not stand Anime either. To me, Morrowind was like nothing else i'd ever played before; go where you want, do what you want, when you want. I dread to think of the hours i've put into playing Morrowind. I was extremely excited when Oblivion was looming on the horizon, but when I played it the magic of Morrowind was missing somehow. Whether it was because I was older, it was more of the same, or I lacked the time and patience I had when playing Morrowind, I don't know.
