They should make a console.
Watching all the Gamescom videos this week, it really makes me feel like the current gen is comming to a close pretty soon.
So i thought now would be a good time to reflect back on the 2 consoles, The Xbox360 and the PS3. This is my comparison between the 2 and will determine which one is my preferred console of choice.
I owned one since 2006.
Advantages over the PS3:
Nice Dashboard interface, and a much easier to use system.
I liked the Achievement system more over the PS3 Trophies.
Gears of war.
2 free games to download (which you own and keep forever) every month as a XBLG member.. But they have only just introduced this, which i think is very very late.
A vast majority of my friends are 360 owners.
I owned a PS3 slim since 2008.
Advantages over Xbox360:
I much prefer the PS3 controller.
Much lighter system and no brick to carry around. Which to me is important as im lucky enough to have a job where i can bring my consoles to work, and i play on them when it is not busy.
Much better and more reliable hardware.
Last of Us.
Trying to determine which console i think is better, is very close and i dont even think there is a clear winner. I am sure there were a lot more larger differences you could compare between the 2 the further you go back in time. If i could only keep one system, it would definitely be a tough decision. But i would probably have to go for the Xbox360. A lot of it, is because of all the little minor differences. It is more of a sociable console with the likes of party chat. I like the presentation of gamer tags and avatars a lot more. Multiplayer on games seem a lot more reliable with dedicated servers for most of their games. Especially when the xbox have the better multiplayer exclusives.
