...honestly, I never thought that I would say this, but I'm getting tired of sitting at my computer for gaming / school / work... it gets old. For the first time in about 7 years I'm considering swallowing my pride and getting a console. I prefer PC gaming by far, but along with being sick of sitting at a desk for hours, the market has been tremendously tilted towards consoles. There are literally 3-4 big PC releases a year (aside from MMO's) and not much else, while on consoles it seems there is at least 1 per month. Now on to which one I should get... -I really don't want to worry about my system being more likely to tank in a year than not (360). -I really don't want a shitty online mechanic, well, shittier than consoles are already (PS3). ...I'm not really worried about price atm. I will probably end up getting either a new 360 or a used PS3. What's the consensus? I hate shitty hardware, but shitty games online is just as bad. EDIT: can anyone tell me specifics on why Xbox live is considered to be so much better than PSN? ...i mean it's not like one has actual servers and one doesn't right? they both are basically connecting you to some other idiot with low ping.
