I have a 360 and PS3. The downside to the PS3 right now is that the PSN doesn't have the member base that XBOX Live has. I was trying to play Battlefield: Bad Company on entered into a game where I was there for 5 mintues waiting for more players to start. I ended up quitting out and having to find another game. I do like the backwards compatibility and the BR drive. I've started a BR movie collection and I'm going to probably try and find the last 5 Final Fantasy games to keep myself occupied.

I have an original run 360 that hasn't had any real problems. I figure I got lucky.

Your first mistake was buying a console to play an FPS After years of gaming on a PC, mainly FPS's, I can't bring myself to play them on a console. Give me a mouse and keyboard any day of the week!

Although playing Halo online is fun from time to time, I'd still prefer a mouse and keyboard.

EDIT: Oh, and I forgot to mention my roomate had a 360 that met the red ring of death fate. Sold it on ebay as-is for $150. Ended up getting a PS3 but is selling that now too.

Use not abuse the rep system!

Man, I can't get over how convoluted the Xbox interface is. It's like a 5 step process just to disconnect my controller from a console. While Sony is lacking in the online community, its interface is much nicer to deal with.

It's a matter of opinion. As far as I am concerned XBL is still way ahead of the PSN.

I agree, but for gaming on a budget, its awesome.

I'd love to get a PS3 with GT5P and a G25 racing wheel along with one of those arcade seats, but that'd run me up over $1200.

Frankly, for about $400 with tax I can get a 360 with Live, a steering wheel (wireless) and Forza 2. Sounds great to me, even if it'll break in two years.

I was referring to the interface of the console itself. I suppose the online interface is probably much better on the 360.

How long ago did that happen?

For a second I was totally turned off when I realized that the RROD was present in 1/3 Xbox 360s and I was wondering if I needed a 2 year warranty ($169) but Microsoft has a 3 year warranty when dealing with the RROD.

I am a proud 360 owner. Had the thing for almost two years now and it never had any problems. I love using connect 360 to stream my music and movies to the console. As a side note, I believe I'm a member of the 1% of gamers who PREFER using a controller for FPS games to using a mouse and keyboard.

Back when I was living with my family we had a 360 and a Wii. I really liked the 360 as it had some great games. I'm seriously considering buying a 360 for myself as I miss some of the games (plus, I really want to be able to play The Force Unleashed and it's not coming out for PC )

I actually just switched from a 360 to ps3. I love not having to pay to play online games or having to buy a wireless adapter, or an additional drive to play high def movies, and the ability to play games at 1080p. The bang for the buck you get with the ps3 can't be rivaled by any of the other console makers.
