Stick your littlebigplanet disc up your arse sideways for all i care, if it makes you happy mate, whatever lights your candle. What you buy/choose/like/insert is generally unique, or we'd have one console and a very boring world.

I'm just pointing out that statistically/monetarily, and in my personal experience the 360 is the better console. Dont have to take the PS3 r00lz rebuttal just because it's been mentioned in the same sentence as a 360.
the cost of a new ps3 is 399.99, the cost of an x-box elite is 399.99...


In the end it will always be a preference battle...To me how much a system makes a company is irrelevant to whether or not I will buy it...For me it quite simply comes down to me liking the duel shock controller waaaaaaaay better than the 360 controller and blu-ray(usable technology) beats unreleased technology any day...There are absolutely no games on the 360 that I have played that I would want to own(I gamefly everything) but I can say different about the wii and ps3...

it's not always bad to lose some dough on something if it helps you position/sell a bunch of other shit. i mean, it's not as though the ps3 is going to force them to file chapter 11 or anything, and it gives their customers something to aspire to. as the guy was saying at the conference today: ps2 still has the greatest install base, and current ps2 owners are future ps3 owners.

my catering company for example.. we sell a bunch of stuff retail and wholesale, some of which we lose money on.. but those 'loss leaders' act as advertising. people buy a couple of our quiches, dressings, samwiches and dressings and stuff at a Pusateris or another grocery store or deli, and then get us to do a party, dinner and/or event for them

xbl is good only because there is a massive population of teens with parents credit cards on there

ps3 online doesn't have as big of a community, but much less annoying.



pc beats all anyways

emulators ftw

the motion controller looked so sick for ps3, i hope they make it with good games. the modracers or whatever looked pretty chill too, although the graphics looked a little weak.

ps3>xbox>wii IMO, but whatever i'm obviously biased (we all are). its all a matter of perspective and wants.

edit: why would i possibly care if sony made or lost money? do you think this reflects poorly on the product itself? its expensive and parents are cheap, and buy their kids the more affordable console(s). just because sony made a business blunder doesn't really speak for the quality of the system. i really don't see how you can argue that the ps3 doesn't have vastly superior hardware than the xbox360, and far greater potential.

and can someone fill me in on what sort of "worthwhile" online content is on xbox live? (oh ya, that you have to pay for)

Shut the fuck up with this fanboy shit! It ruins every fucking thread made about one console or another on this site!
People have their own preference, let's just leave it at that!

Thats exactly what i think. It's not helped by the fact that the European playstations have less components, i.e: no ability to play ps2 games, yet they cost more than their US counterparts.

Fucking awesome marketing sony.

that's the case with many products that are sold in different marketplaces.. just like how ford focuses in europe are REAL cars while the ones in north america are pieces of shit.

so the new ps3 firmware allows streaming television from a tuner card installed in a pc on ur network, provides a programming guide (complete with synopsis, ratings, etc) which interfaces with a cable/satellite box to change the channel AND lets you schedule the recording of upcoming programs from the comfort of your couch? does it also display any music visualizers you've installed on your pc when listening to music? if you can only say no to any of these then there's really no reason to be impressed.

the reason i keep propping up the xbox based on media center is because ive had it for a while and it really sucked keeping my pc in the living room and using my tv as a second monitor. thanks to my xbox 360 that is no longer an issue. and i can play awesome games. and have xbox live.

its a pretty sweet deal. ppl without media center don't know what they're missing, i guess
