guyhunter I think the problem dubbleduecer has with ur comment is that ur obviously comparing it to something instead of assessing the ps3 as a stand-alone gaming system. I own both, and each has it's good points but i wouldn't bother to compare the system to each other. the simple reason for this is that microsoft is well microsoft... the majority of pc's use their software so when they translate into the gaming world there are obvious advantages. the ps3 has just come out here so it's pretty early to be making judgements on it. [shrug] and burning? that's where u import a cd to the hard drive, kind of like ripping to ur computer. xbox and ps have these functions.
