    I'm happy so far, because I love having access to more games I haven't watched a BluRay movie yet though, but I'm guessing it's awesome

    I know the system is great and all that, and Halo is awesome, but for me games are already very expensive, and having to shell out an extra $60.00 a year just to play online is kinda irksome. I also don't like how they do a point system to buy things. You always end up with an odd amount of points left over that you end up having to spend more cash on just to get enough to make up the difference. I know I'm just griping about it, but it bothers me.

    Don't get me wrong. PS3 has it's own share of things that need improvement, but they all seem pretty minor. I guess for me it's a money issue. Some people see the online fee and think "Meh, no big deal" and that's fine. For me it's like paying extra for something I already own. I'm also a firm believer in not paying for something I can get for free. It's just good, sound advice.

    Now that the PS3 has dropped in price I think it's a good investment.
    The only major complaint anyone seems to have about the system is the design of the controllers compared to the 360, but I think that's more of a personal preference.
    I agree with all of these points, but I still like my 360 a little bit more. At this point I think it's a irrational love but oh well. Both systems are great and they both have their strengths and weaknesses.

    And yes, I MUCH MUCH MUCH prefer the 360 controller. I want to throw the PS3 controller against the wall

    I like owning both systems. I use my 360 for all the games available for both systems and the PS3 for their exclusive games so I'm not missing out on games anymore. I agree with Amari, the 360 losing all of it's exclusives sucks though, especially Mass Effect.

    Final Fantasty 13 is on the 360 and PS3. There are some on the PS1 and PS2, but the oldest ones are on the NES and SNES. And only the older PS3s can play PS2 games. 20GB, 60GB, 80GB (4 USB), are the only one's that play PS2 games. Any other models can't.

    I have both, and as of right now, the PS3 is a far better system than the 360. The 360 has lost too many 1st party exclusives to the PS3, while the PS3 is continuing to keep it's best exclusives locked up like Uncharted, Killzone, Rachet, those things. I personally think the 360 went down in terms of quality after it lost Mass Effect, and Bioshock. Now the only thing it has now is Gears and Halo, and I don't even like Gears.

    As for the things you mentioned about the 360 like 60 bucks for XBL, I agree that it's a little over the top with the price of games today, not to mention you sometimes have to pay $10 if you buy a used game. At the same time, XBL is a really good service, I like it better than PSStore, even though PSStore is 100% free, and Sony are putting out some really good deals that are making PS+ worth it, but I don't think it's as good as XBL, at least not yet.

    MSP's don't bother me that much either, I mean you're going to be spending more of them when the newest DLC is out, so I don't have a problem with having 153 of them left over, I know you can't buy anything with them, but when I buy more all it does is add more to my total amount which is fine.

    As for the controller I like the DS3 more than the 360. I only like the 360 controller more for shooters, DS3 for everything else.

    i love it, not just for the games but for the netflix, the mlbtv (you have to be a subscriber to both of those to use the service) and streaming videos to my tv via ps3 and a program called ps3 media server running on my pc.

    i've found their store cards to be very easy to use, and i love the ps store, and being a playstation plus member.
    Netflix on consoles is awesome. I love being able to stream American Dad whenever I want on my 360

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!


    Charlie, it's not the difficulty setting, just moving the controller around throws me off. However, I've liked what I've heard about this game so far and your review just adds to that. I definitely will play it and who knows, maybe I will like the controls (doubtful but maybe...I'm guessing I'll like it in some parts and hate it in others) but the story sounds like it's worth playing. Plus, my favorite game(s) is the Mass Effect series and I play it over and over for different possibilities, I like hearing that for Heavy Rain

    I saw that, I always thought the 360 version should get Master Chief or something

    True story. I actually dislike the GoW series very much, but after seeing a video of Kratos in MK I'm excited to have the character.

    I know some of you think it's blasphemous to not like GoW. To me it's just button mashing hell, and for crap sakes you think a guy that strong would be able to jump across a simple little pit, but no. they had to make the jumping controls so janky that you fall into the pit more often than just simply stepping over it.

    Getting back to MK, at first I wasn't super excited for the new MK after playing MK Vs. DC which I thought was awful. Then I played the demo, and watched some video and I'm totally stoked about it. I will be picking mine up at midnight.
