    Now that I picked up a PS3 again (I sold my launch PS3 shortly after getting it because I never played it) I have to choose which system to play multiplatform games on. So which do you and why?

    PS3, all my friends have it and I do not enjoy paying for LIVE.

    I also prefer the controller.

    For games none of my friends are interested in, I 'acquire' them for the 360.

    Used to be my 360. After replacing my 360 3 times I refuse to do it ever again. That is when I bought my PS3.

    360 exclusives are the ONLY thing I buy for my 360 now.

    If its on the PC I get it on the PC even if I have to wait. Everything else is on PS3.

    depends on if there is mp or not.

    if yes, what console are my friends getting it for, if the game is GOOD, i buy it.

    if no mp, read reviews on the better game, and gamefly it for that console.

    most people seem to play them on the xbox because of the ability to 'aquire' them for the xbox.

    ps3's are usually used for blu ray and ps3 exlcusives from what ive heard mostly.

    Trey.

    Prefer the controller and PSN is free. If it's a game I don't really care about or just want to try, I will download it for 360. :hsugh:

    Sure, if your 360 didn't RRoD.

    Since mine has, I really don't want to invest in downtime. So, multiplats will go the PS3 way from now on.

    When I had both I basically based my decision on a few things. If it was a sequel, I went with whatever system I owned the first game on even if it carried over from last gen. So Splinter Cell was 360, GTA and RE were PS3.

    Then I also rolled with 360 by default on all FPS.

    As for games that were none of the above, I used to just default it to 360 just because of Live and my friends had 360s (even though none of them ever played what I played).

    But I decided of the start of this year I really didn't need both systems anymore and wanted to get a gaming PC at some point, so I just started buying everything for PS3. Now PS3 is about to get slammed with awesome exclusives and I don't think I can handle it :wtc:

    I buy for both depending on a few factors.

    exclusive content, which system people I'll play have it on etc (Madden for PS3, NHL for 360 etc)

    If none of that has any bearing I usually just go with the PS3. I'm more comfortable with it as I've used the same controller essentially since the PS1 days and I prefer trophies to gamerscore.

    360, all my friends have them, much easier to find them and play games with them than on my ps3.

    for what it's worth, i consider myself really lucky to have both...and it's only when you have both do you realize how stupid all the 360 vs. PS3 arguments are.

    that being said - i read to see if one looks or plays better. if they're the same, i consider whether i'm planning on playing multiplayer with friends (most of mine have 360), and then maybe DLC.

    thats why in games like cod now i mute anyone with a mic icon now. i cant take the chance of one of them deciding to sing some piece of shit rap song outta nowhere, its just not worth the risk
