    Good thing I bought a PS3 over the holiday I guess. The main reasons I got PS3 instead of the 360 is:

    1) All the great games that came out for it during 2009.
    2) The launch classics such as MGS4
    3) All the great games coming out for it in 2010
    4) Ability to download and play classic PS1 games that I haven't played in nearly a decade.
    5) All my friends have 360's and most of the non-friends I know with 360's are immature fanboys, though all consoles have fanboys. The ones that especially irritate me are the Wii fanboys whose answer to all the shitty games is "I don't care as long as I can play Zelda!" well I say fuck Zelda how many times can you play that damn game.
    6) Blu-ray FTW!

    i know quite a few people who are just enough of fanboys who will say the ps3 doesnt have any games, but when an awesome ps3 game comes around they avoid playing it just so they can keep going with the whole ps3 doesnt have any good games thinking. kinda sad

    Bigger budget doesn't always mean better game.

    The only system which I believe has a shitty game library is the Wii. Sure some may disagree, but besides the official Nintendo titles like Metroid, Mario, Zelda, and Smash Bros, most of the games I've seen for Wii are either geared towards children or soccer moms. I know the 360 has a great game library but some of the PS3 games just interested me much more than some of the Xbox exclusives and the only Halo I really enjoyed playing was the first one. Plus I tend to go for the less popular system just because I hate fanboys and their stupid trends.

    i gotta agree with the wii library. i work at a video game store and i get to see the shovelware the wii gets on a weekly basis. the games they come up with are a complete joke. i have both 360 and ps3 and i wouldnt have it any other way. i like my ps3 more, but i still enjoy the 360. its the ones who have the 360 and hate anything ps3 related just cause its not a 360. those are the ones that make me laugh.

    only thing that comes close to those fanboys are the ones with a ps3 who refuse to play the games out for it while complaining about it having no games. that one makes no sense to me.

    if 2009's games came out in 2007, no one would own a 360

    It really just depends on what type of gamer you are. My casual gaming friend just finally bought a next gen system, a ps3. He invites a few girls and guys to his house to relax and have a few drinks and after a while they want to play some games. Thing is he only has games like fifa, some fps and a few fighting games , and only 1 game thats over 4 players.

    Luckly I knew this and packed up my wii with tons of multiplayer games to choose from on the hard drive. He then proceeds to tell me, I should have bought a wii.

    Ps3 definately had the best single player exclusives this year though. I would say 360 edged out the arcade exclusives with shadow complex alone.

    360 always edges out the competition when there is no competition.

    They were the best in 05, and now they have the best "exclusive arcade" games on a genre that only exists in that console.

    But Sony fucked up again with the PSP Go :dunno:

    PS3's exclusive line up is essentially what led me to part ways with my 360 though. Aside from ME2, 360 had absolutely nothing in the future I was looking forward to. Hopefully Sony can swing 3rd party devs back into their favor with this turn aorund.
