Which is hilarious because PS3 fanboys constantly try to assert that the 360 has "no games" even though in the real world, it has more games than the PS3 and then they come up with all kinds of reasons for why those games don't count. "They're too old!" "Still nothing as highly rated as Uncharted 2 or MGS 4!" "You have to pay for Xbox Live!" and my favorite of all... "Well, I can get the better version on the PC anyway!" Gotta love that. The instant you bring up a game like Minecraft or The Witcher 2 as a benefit for the 360 over the PS3 (and most people don't try to present them as exclusives, even though the notion of console exclusivity exists in the real world and not here), the only rebuttal PS3 fanboys have is to bring another platform into the discussion to save the PS3.

Really makes you think, doesn't it?

The 360 has a larger library of quality games than the PS3. This is a fact. No amount of opinionated rebuttals or bringing in the PC to defend the PS3 can change that, as much as you'd like them to.

tormentos

Yes it has more games to bad a ton are old ones no one care about,since 2009 the PS3 has been on a roll with games,and while you get the same halo,forza and gears,we get new series.

Spin it however you like. Quality games are quality games and the 360 has more of them than the PS3. :)

[QUOTE="locopatho"]Broken 360 = fixed for free. Broken PS3 = 160 euro to fix. Headset free with 360. Buy one for PS3. Rumble pads included with 360. Rumble called "last gen" and "impossible" by Sony... who then release rumble pads for 50 euro each as a nice big "fvck you" to their early adopters. All three console makers just want our cash, they just have different ways of screwing us :Ptormentos
The PS3 had 1 year warranty,the xbox 360 was rise to 3 years almost 2 years after the problem appear,and YLOD wasn't even close to RROD.. You could even use PS2 head sets,could you do that on 360.? Socom head set work perfectly on PS3,and the one you got free was a wired one. Yes but they had motion and build in battery,the play and charge kit was $20 extra,360 controllers to this day still are to expensive,$50 dollars no rechargeable batteries and no motion,DS3 include motion,rumble and build in battery as cost $55,on 360 you need a play an charge kit is extra. But wait there is more.. The PS3 was blu-ray which was $1,000 on 2006,so when the 360 get the ad on for blu-ray.? Oh you got one a dead format for $200,which sky rocket the price of the xbox 360 to $600 dollars but without wifi,and without free online play those were $99 apart for something the even the wii had,and $50 for online play.. In the race of who god more screwed by who MS fans will always loose.

Wow you're an idiot. Did you know the XBOX had a 1year warranty as well? Did you also know they extended that warranty to 3 years and they re-imbursed people that had to pay for the repair. Unlike like Sony that NEVER extended it's warranty OR re-imbursed anyone for repairs. I've had 3 XBOXs since launch yet I only paid for 1. BTW not all BR players were $1000 in 2006 so stop false statements.

Why is it always COWS who care the most about the XBL fee? You don't pay for it, and you do realize that lems don't care, because its so fvcking cheap in the grand scheme of things. PSN = no party chat, less integrated, aka - inferior. The XBL fee has ALWAYS been attached to the Xbox console. Everyone knows that you have to pay for online. Yet they keep buying it. Maybe it's not as big a deal as you cows like to think it is.

Ive come to the conclusion all cows are 13 year old tramps who can't afford Live.

#158 Posted by mems_1224 (46586 posts) -
well seeing as how i use my 360 more in one year than i've used my ps3 and wii combined in 5 years its well worth the price. plus i cant remember when the last time i actually payed $60 for live was. usually i can get it for around $35-40

As I predicted the cows would be starting staggering amounts of xbox hate threads the closer Halo 4 gets to launch. Damn October is going to be a long month. Oh well, I do enjoy watching cows sad attempt at damage control though. :cool:

#161 Posted by StormyJoe (4913 posts) -

[QUOTE="TheEroica"] Also subjective... and skewed by fictitious rules implemented by the feral dogs of system wars... xbox has dozens of high quality ganes that are NOT available on ps3, witcher 2 comes to mind as well as an insanely good selection of download arcade games. Ps3 having a "better lineup" is purely subjective and skewed. tormentos

The witcher 2 is on PC is a multi platform game..lol

The topic at hand is 360 vs PS3. So, are you saying to compete with the 360 you need a PS3 and a PC?

7 years of XBL Gold = worth it 7 years of cow tears = pricelesssts106mat

Cows aren't the ones that are forced pay $$$ if they want to play online. So you got that statement backwards.

And to answer the original question of this thread which you faild to do. Wii and PS3 is by far a better choice.

Pick any 2 out of the 3 console and obviosuly they'd have the edge over just one.

[QUOTE="TheEroica"][QUOTE="themajormayor"][QUOTE="TheEroica"] Thank you genius... thats my point. Its NOT on ps3. The overlooking of console exclusives on xbox is a system wars rule. The real world could care less.

It's not console exclusive

It is available on xbox360 and not available on ps3... how dense can u cows possibly be.?

console exclusive=exclusive to consoles

no ownage here, the app is free on xbox live.tormentos

Yes it is and you can't use it even if you have a working netflix account,that is the point you can't use it.

On PS3 all i need is to have a netflix account and online access,on xbox 360 you need online access,a netflix account and xbox live which is $60 dollars,that is call hiding the app over a pay scheme..

its free for me, since I am a gold member.

that's an interesting twist mayor, unfortunately it doesn't cut it. P1ss poor online, no headset included, can't even send voice messages on psn yet, you cows have been asking Sony for years for that stuff and they haven't delivered. your post fails for the simple reason I can prove cows have cried for features xbl has as standard and psn has failed to provide.

I showed before that 360 is actaully the most expensive system, it actually ended up costing more than a launch PS3. The 360 guys got very angry at me in that thread, that's because the truth hurts.

Launch 360-$400

WIFI add on-$100 (not nesseccary for XBL but so many poor suckers bought it)

XBL $50 for 5 years= $350. XBL after price increase to $60 = $120. That is a total of $570 just to play online with, you could have saved that money for other things if you had a PS3. You could have gotten more games.

Now that comes to a grand total of $1070. Also factor in due to RROD, you had no choice but to buy a Slim model, which if you want the good hard drive it's $300-$400.

That is about $1470. That is how much money 360 owners have spent.

If you had only a PS3 you wold have only spent $600 at launch, or only $300-$350 for the Slim. That's it. You would have gotten everything you needed for a far better price. The PS3 SAVES you money, the 360 just TAKES your money.

This post will make the lems angry, but it's the truth.

Paying $60 a year for XBL, bad. Worrying about how other people spend their money, worse.
#191 Posted by M8ingSeezun (1979 posts) -

360 is a garbage rip-off system when you factor in Live Gold. It's too Online MP centric for me.

Otherwise, it's an OK system, TBH. The 360 Slim is a pretty solid well built machine.

Personally, I would not buy one just for a few games that actually interest me. I'm very well invested in my PS3-DSiXL-iPhone 4.

Lol lots of defensive lemmings in here. Quite sad that some people pay so much to play online when it's free everywhere else.
#193 Posted by speedfog (3045 posts) -

TC sucks, and wth is this?

If you count 7 years of XBL gold then you should count from the start when PS3 came out in 2007.

If we don't count buting multiple consoles due being dead like RROD / YLOD, errors...

PS3 = 599 US dollars (buhu :cool:)

Xbox 360 = US$399 + 7 years of gold = 350 (if you are an idiot and don't search decent for a deal, it's easy to find if you have a full year lol.)

So PS3 for +- 6 years 599 US dollars.

Xbox 360 for 7 years US$749. (again if you never ever had saw a deal before lol.)

So count in a Wii around US$250: PS3 + Wii = US$849.

So no TC.

And still a 360 is cheaper these day's then a ps3. Even if you use that logic then don't say 7 years of gold.

On the surface, 50/year, or 350/7 years seems like a lot of money. (who out there honestly thinks in increments of 7 years when buying something, unless maybe its a home mortgage??). But it really isn't.

7 years = 2,556 days (one extra day added for a leap year).

$350/2,556 days = 13 cents a day.

13 cents a day, for the ability to be able to chat with my friends even when they are not in the same game, all the demos and the really good selection of arcade/indie games. Yeah, I can deal with that. It wouldn't be worth it if you don't have any friends on XBL, but with friends the cost is more than justified.

There's people out there who pay $60 a year, (which would be $420 over 7 years), for the newest Madden or Call of duty rehash. I'd say that's far dumber than paying for live.
