I just have to rip this apart with my opinion real quick:

+Project Natal - Not released and not sure if it will be anytime soon and who knows how good it will be.
+Online community and play - Good, sure. But the PS3's is not far behind.
+Exclusives - 360 has hardly any good exclusives, PS3 has a crazy amount of excellent ones.
+Warranty - 54% RROD still, you're going to need all the Warranty you can get.
+Playstation 3 - Failure rate between 1-10%.

You can get a PS3 and play with your friends also, this is not a limitation of the PS3. I think they should start writing that on the box.

+True there is no official release date but it is assumed to be be late 2010 - It's something to look forward to and it'd be best to buy the 360 now rather than when that comes out so it's not all that money up front ya hurr
+Again I have no idea (for the ps3) but if it's better it is better.
+Doesn't matter, if you love the Halo series what does it matter if PS3 has Uncharted 1 and 2 and other such very awesome games? PGR is also the best racing game that I have ever played (haven't played them all though) and thats an exclusive if I remember correctly.
+54% - it's still including the old ones not 54% of the new ones coming out if I'm not mistaken (maybe I am? Do you have a link?) - also a lot of these failures were user error as well. (putting the power brick on shaggy carpets, plugging it into UPS' rather that directly into the wall, putting them in small areas with no air flow) may seem trivial but it's all over the instructions not to do that stuff.
+The fan noise issues have been increasing especially with the Slim apparently - grinding noises. Might not be failures at the moment but who knows.

You can pick at ANY response I give and I could at any you give for the playstation 3. Like I said I love them both but nothing is perfect. If you want something to be worse it can be, but you won't be able to convince me as I won't be able to you.

Have you tried turning it off and on again ?

Yeah, I'm too tired to debate about this about this anymore and it's going nowhere!

Didn't I say on page 2 or 3 that this thread should die before it goes out of control because of MC? I knew when I saw 2 more pages added for today, things were going out of control.

Advice to you- let it go, Jesus. Worry about your own money, not some random guy's...especially one that you didn't meet. ;)

The thread should have been killed off when he bought his 360....can someone just lock it now?
