I've had a 360 since launch (upgraded to a slim last year) and always loved it, but recently had a friend offer to trade his 120 gb ps3 slim 3 controllers,and skyrim for my 80gb 360 slim, one controller, and ac3 and 30$. First off, is this a Good deal? Second, is it worth switching? I mostly want a blu ray player and Can live without halo and gears but are there equally Good ps3 exclusives? killzone and resistance caught my eye but how do they compare? Also, everyone always says that psn is inferior to Xbox live which is why It's free. Is there any truth to that? Am I going to hate psn being used to xbl for six years?

go for it. Killzone and Resistance don't come anywhere close to matching up to Halo. Shooters overall on the PS3 kind of suck because the way the controller is designed. XBL is still better overall than PSN but PSN is a lot better than it used to be. i hated psn after years of using xbl. expect slower updates and a firmware update every few months. Also, some PS3 games require you to install them which takes about 10-15 minutes. PS+ is a pretty good deal though.

Yes, they both suck but the PS3 sucks less.

trade a 360 ... for a ps3?

Oh thank god! it's a level one guy. obviously an alt account.

you'd have to be some kind of weird, psycho, dirty, smelly, hippie, hipster, ugly, festering, backstabbing, jealous, stinky, faccile, moronic, stupid, idiotic, dumb-dumb of a cow to trade in the mighty xbox 360 for the *wait a trillion years for gran tuflopso 5* 'sony playstation 3'.

i want to take this opportunity to give a shout out two completely different and great guys on this forum. todd2r, and todd2r_partdeux. the only humans ever to figure out the ps3's only useful purpose ...

What's different about the controller that makes shooters worse? anyone else agree with that? I installed all my Xbox games anyway so That's No big deal, same with updates, I'm relatively patient, but is the actual performance of psn worse? as far as lag or servers or things like that go?

Trade the 360 in. There's nothing good about it. Bad games, bad controller and inferior online service.

Of course the PS3 is 256% a better deal than the 360. Only PSN+ obliterates any advantage the 360 had.

You want a Blu-Ray player and some fantastic video games with a free online service, and a payable monthly option that is, in the end, a fantastic deal for gaming? Yes, go with the PS3.

I sold my 360 for a PS3 two years ago. If you can live without Halo, in my opinion the PS3 is the much better value. That being said, I still haven't found a multiplayer game on the PS3 that is as good as the Halo series. The exclusives are great games though, and you would be able to pick up the Uncharted series, Killzone, Infamous, and some of the others on the cheap.

Thank you to those that responded to the topic, what I'm gathering is that PlayStation has more/better exclusives none of which I've touched but have been looking into recently and am eager to try, I'm especially excited for the last of us. my only gripe is skyrim. I played through it at launch on 360 about 50+ hours, Did all factions and major quests then sold it telling myself I'd buy the goty when it came out, is there even going to be a skyrim goty for ps3? besides dark souls skyrim was my absolute favorite game so I know it's only one game but It's a big deal for me.
