I'd be buying for nothing except the uncharted games though. why would i buy multiplats on it? whilst one or two might look slightly better, the majority are either the same or perform a lot worse. the controller is literally IMO a pile of crap, so i'd have to spend money on a proprietary one modelled after the 360's. Blu ray? well no thanks since we stream movies. I honestly cannot think of a single reason to buy one, thats not me hating on it, just the way i feel.

I would love to have a PS3 to play Uncharted 2, GoW3 and LBP2, but i see no point on getting another console just to play 3 games. Arguing with him is like arguing with a wall, though. He thinks anything related to Sony is gold!

How about: It's cheap, larger hdd space and you get a game or two with it depending which model you get. LOTS of great games including some amazing exlusives. Free online. Blue ray player. I guess if you aren't interested then thats fine. Enjoy whatever system you have, shame your missing out on some great games.

i do enjoy my 360, like i said, i dont see a reason to buy what is essentially the same experience except only a few different exclusives.

And how many of those sales are from re-buys and YLOD? See, I can play that shiit too dummies. Actually, sales will probably rise like 1000% when people start breaking that sliding cover on the disc tray.

you can't play that card because YLOD is nowhere near the same huge mess that the RRoD was... And on reviews of the model people complain that the slider top is ugly but not weak.

I've never once talked about rrod or ylod. I'm no fanboy, sir. I love the gaming industry as a whole, and when I see some positive news, I like to post it.

It's okay man... I haven't heard people die yet because other people didn't agree with someone so you can take it easy and calm down. You can play the xbox360 in peace.. the rest of humanity won't die because they play it or not :) thank you though kind sir.. I appreciate what you where trying to do for the rest of humanity.

I wonder how much bigger the effect would be on other parts of EU were the PS3 actually dominate,EU sold 2 million PS2 in six months,if sales are increasing it would give the PS3 an even bigger boost this holiday.

Sony is one of my most respected companies.. unlike microsoft.. No not because of the PS3.. but because of their inventions of media formats (CD,DVD, Blu-ray) and their professional 4K projectors, OLED displays and 4K cameras.. Microsoft makes horribe keyboards, mice and a mainstream OS. Meh.

This new ps3 really does seem to be taking off. I stopped in GameStop and asked how it was doing and the guy said, "I've sold 5 today so far". I said, "that's pretty good I guess". Then he said, "yeah but every person that bought one just took it out to the parking lot and pi$$ed on it". I was like, "that's crazy!" Then he said,"not really. Ps3 is crap and people can't take it anymore".

It's fair to love Sony and hate MS based on what they did or did not do in the past. To me both are equally greedy, but i respect logic opinions.

What i dont understand, is the blind brand love/hate from many here. People hate the 360 because it's a MS system. Considering this context, it's qualities as a gaming platform are not relevant anymore. It has an incredible amount of games, but MS made it so it must suck.

I don't see how this is "ownage". I never claimed or have any illusions of a fictional character being my girlfriend. That thread was all in good fun, not meant to be taken so damn seriously, lol. Heil on the other hand seems to believe that by dismissing the multiplats on 360, as well as exclusives which don't measure up to his unrealistic standard, that he has some "proof" of the platform "dropping core and going 99% casual to chase the Wii's pot of gold" blah blah blah.
