The last part is exactly right. The 360 got the leap, but the ps3 will win in the end (or at least have a longer life expectancy).

Sales judge the winner, yes. However, imho, the system that looks the best, has the most features, the best selection of games, and the most reliability is the one that is the best.

Therefor, the PC wins hands down.

True I did have it happen to me after owning one of the orginals for nearly 3 years, luckily MS took responsabilty for it and fixed it (actually they sent me a referb but whatever) which I have had no issues with. Playstation 3s are as safe as some people make them out to be. They have the YLOD though that is a low % chance of happening but apparently grinding noises / excessive fan noise is somewhat a common issue with the PS3. I looked it up because I was hearing a noise and was like 'oh crap' but luckily mine was just because there was a fingerprint on the disk and the sensor was freaking out.

The PS3 sales sky rocketed not because of the games that are coming out (at least in my opinion) but because of the price. I know if it hadn't been the price it was I wouldn't have bought it and I think you said something similar Mike lol.

I think it's easy to afford both of them anyways, buying both of them is like buying a PS3 when it first came out so just use that as reasoning if you need to

Have you tried turning it off and on again ?

Yeah.. definately NOT a tie. But now that they are cheaper, they'll obviosly sell more than they were before (and maybe pull ahead in the next year or 2). I feel bad for the people who have the older PS3's. So huge and loud.

Hey are those figures the amount they have sold this years or thus far?

IF so then I have the best console of them all.

The PS2 is the best-selling console to date, having reached over 138 million units sold as of August 18, 2009[2] and a software library projected to exceed 1,900 games in 2009.[6] Twenty games are scheduled to be released in 2010, giving the PS2 a marketable life of over a decade, thus continuing the sixth generation.


Yeah that's right PS2 owns them all. It has the most exclusives of any console combined and the most amount of games of all consoles combines.
beat that f**kers!

In that case, Pros of the 360 include:

1) Has sold more units than the PS3(but will not in the future)
2) Can play with some online friends, because they have it too.

Might as well join the wagon and get a 360 I suppose. I definitely don't want the best system, I just want the one that has been sold the most. This seems to be most peoples mentality, because any sane person would not even consider a 360 when compared to the PS3. I just don't get it.

People buy it because for the price you pay you get a system thAt is almost as powerful, for a better price. Youre so f**ken ignorant of anyone elses opinion michael. Its ok to be wrong and its ok for other people to choose different from you. The ps3 is more powerful, has worse online play but has bluray, has different but not better or worse controllers and is more expensive. The 360 has a different controller, better online play, no blu ray and is cheaper. They both have different games and both share a lot of titles. Hence i went with the 360. I got 2 free games and an hdmi cable and wireless for 300 bucks. If i went with the ps3 i would of just got the console. No games. Now go find another thread to ruin
