I had a PS2 and Xbox 1. When I realized how much greater Xbox was, I sold my PS2 and never looked back. Until now that is. With the failing of my 360 system and reading countless message boards (anyone seen xbox.com forums, hardware section?) I'm asking your help.

ALL I play, seriously, this is it...is 2K sports games and Ubisoft games (Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, you get the idea). For those of you if any that have switched, are there any differences? I read reviews and they get the same scores usually, but that doesn't mean there are differences. My only gripe about switching back to PS is that I always thought the PS controller felt like a 2 handed VCR remote. Stiff, square, borderline uncomfortable. The Xbox controllers (both systems) fit like a glove. But then again, I am debating weather carpel tunnel syndrome might be better than sending in an Xbox for a broken Xbox, only to get "repaired" with a broken Xbox. Seriously, like I said I loved saying goodbye to PS forever to do Xbox (Live service, graphics), but they CAN'T even fix these things. They literally don't know how, and that's unforgivable.

I for one don't like the xbox's controller...anyhow i am/was the biggest M$ sucker around. Bought the box1 two months before it was discontinued...bought xbo2 at launch just to have to deal with headaches...3 xbo2 later no mas por favor...smahshed the third one into the wall...had enough of those failing boxes...no more porno box please as my cousin would say it(you know 3 xboxes that's xxxxboxes).

I used to have Xbox 1, Gamecube, and PS2 all at the same time. PS2 was in my opinion, the least comfortable - not round enough.

I'm not trying to bash those who love the 360. I want to love it! The games, graphics, Live service, come on! I'm just venting at my extreme frustration. Go to xbox.com, then the 360 hardware forum. You'll see NOTHING but posts on RROD. Go to www.xbox-scene.com (a site basically for Xbox lovers who mod their consoles) and it's no secret, the thing is fatally flawed. These guys at xbox-scene repair their own consoles, and from what I read, they're not confident it's ever going to be a permanent fix. Just send it in to MS you say instead of haphazardly fixing your beloved console? Stroll on back to xbox.com forums and see the horror stories. The thread I read tonight had a man get his "repaired" system dead on arrival. And if you spend any time reading different posts you'll see this isn't an isolated case.

Take me for example! March of 2006. Day one of ownership, RROD after a marathon Ghost Recon session! My girlfriend goes to sleep and I finally get a chance to play what I'd been anticipating for almost a year! Four hours into it, dead! I was so mad I literally couldn't sleep. I'd read warnings about RROD but was just like 90 percent of the folks thinking "no, not to me" because I blindly wanted to play the damn thing so bad. I trade it in to Circuit City for a new ipod thinking I'll just wait it out.

September 2007! New system as a gift from the best mother on Earth! RROD!

At this point, I think the people stating "Launch console - flawless!!" are trolls. If you have a flawless system, just give it another day or two.

plus LIVE had turned into a complete joke with all the annoying/angry/generally unbearable people on it

I bought my PS3 1 and 1/2 months ago, and i have not touched my 360 since. I bought my first 360 nov of 06 and i am on my 3rd one. Thank god for best buy's warranty. I traded the last one for an elite thinking it would be better, and although it has not died, i have a lot of freeze problems, and is loud as hell. I will go back to playing it at some point? My PS3 experience so far has been a surprisingly excellent one, playing heavenly sword, Warhawk, have ratchet on the way, and me and my family are enjoying movies like never before with the blu-ray player. The only thing i think xbox does better right now is communication with friends. The PS3 feels like the superior console as far as hardware goes right now, and the graphics i am seeing on it look better than almost everything i've played on the 360. so if you have the money for it, do it and dont look back.

Unlike you I only post on here for fun or when I have a question or dilema. I have friends and a wife that appear in real life when the computer gets shut down. 4,000+ posts on here isn't something anyone should aspire to.

If I told my wife I had 4,000 posts on a video game message board, I'm sure she'd question wtf my goals in life were. But then again, that's why it says you're a "special member" underneath your login name.

If all you play are 2K sports games and Ubisoft games and you are frustrated with the 360 I think you're good to go.

If you love Live you may want to consider that the PS3's online services aren't really up to par. None of the shortcomings can't be overcome, but something to keep in mind before making the switch.

I've heard a couple of other multi console owners complain about the PS3 controller as well, so you could encounter some adoption difficulties there as well. I think the only thing that would offset this is that its the only controller you'll use. Over time you'll likely adapt to the console.

No matter how hard I try, I cant get with the left analog being where the dpad should be on the 360 controller.

2k is about the same and I hope that with Haze nubisoft has gotten over any glitches its had with the ps3.

You should be fine. Welcome to the party.

Or grab an aftermarket controller, they're out there. I will say I have a friend who had a ps3 brick on him during a game install (used copy of COD3). He called Sony, they said they hadn't ever heard of it happening and said it could have been due to the game disc? Didn't sound likely to me, I was guessing psu. He got a new one no problem from best buy, but lost all of his save game data etc. I'm wondering if you can just swap the HD from one ps3 to another and not lose it? Oh well, just some thoughts, it's not unheard of for a ps3 to go bad (though I have to admit his is the only one I've heard of in contrast to the x360 situation). I do think if you play multi platform games and don't care about exclusives it won't matter either way unless you sit there and compare side by side looking for any difference. I have an early system (purchased in Jan) and have never had a freeze up or anything, probably the most reliable piece of electronics I own. If you value quality over the price difference (which isn't that great considering what you get on a stripped down ps3 is roughly equal if not better than an x360 elite), it's probably worth the switch.

I think the controller issue is completely overblown, I don't like an x360 controller as I'm not used to it, but it takes all of 10 minutes for me to not realize the difference. The psp is the same, once you get used to the controls it ceases being a factor (at least for me).

Its nice that there is a forum as such to vent your frustrations, however you have to remember that forums likes these (including Xbox.com) you are going to hear from the vocal minority. Just look that the post/views and you can get an idea that many more people view but do not voice. Similarly, you will hear about the many problems with Xbox from those that complain, but fail to hear from 10 times as many people who have no complaints.

I look at console hardware as a small cost in home theater gaming. Factor in stereo equipmemt, speakers, display devices, and until places like monoprice, even interconnects were very expensive (even the 'official Sony HDMI cable' was 99.99 when it came out). Some people have no problem spending several hundred dollars every few years (or even yearly) buying new cell phones, and paying through the roof for monthly service charges but at the same time gripe about the $4/month charge for Xbox live. Similarly the Xbox has some hardware issues and I think MS has tried their best to help the gaming community and fessed up about the problem and are actively doing something about it (3 year warreentee). At the same time they keep putting out AAA games month after month, thus continuing to expand the on-line gaming community. There commitment to the games that are comming out and for the future is solid. Plus Sony is banking on a 10 year cycle, and Xbox is likely on a 5 year cycle. By the time they figure out how to exploit the PS3 and potentially provide a better game (vs Xbox) there will be new hardware for the Xbox thus trumping the PS again (the Xbox is 2 years old and likely in 2-3 years and new Xbox will be out, the PS3 still has 9 more years (according to Sony)). The point being as with anything computer related, jump in now, enjoy, when something better appears switch/upgrade. Enjoy Xbox the games/ friends, etc, and IF (I seriously doubt that it will happen anytime soon) the PS3 starts to outperform the Xbox for crossplatform games then switch to the PS3 (by then the next Xbox will be around the corner and you will want to switch back anyways).

If it is in your means, then keep the Xbox and add a PS3. There will then be no regrets, you will be able to play whatever you want, and specifically play exclusive games and enjoy gaming. I have all 3 systems (including the Wii). The PS3 has seen very little gaming, it spends more time folding, watching blu-ray and playing demos. However, with some potentially good exclusives coming out, the PS3 might get some gaming. That being said...

The only other gripe I have with PS games is that when released, there rarely is any discounts. Almost always they are for full retail ($59.99). Almost all Xbox games have a 1st week discount (at least $10, or free extras like MS points, or free games, or accessories). Even when COD4 comes out I can use my BurgerKing coupon and get $10 off for the Xbox, and if is already discounted, even better. R&C is a great game but when I get Halo/Bioshock/Mass Effect at launch for $39.99 (lionsgame.com), there is no way I am going to spend $60 for Heavenly Sword/Lair/R&C. As a result I will wait till the games are 1/2 price either retail or ebay before getting them. Also since these PS3 exclusives are SP only, I might even save more money and just rent them.

Whatever you decide, as long as you end up having fun gaming, that is the key. If you 'switch sides' you will have a similar gaming experience but potentially miss out on other consoles exclusives. Best bet is to play on both.

Xbox and PS3 Gamertag = Xerostomia
Wii = I'm too lazy to get the number

Ah, constructive, insightful, relevant, and enlightening. I knew the fanboys would come, but little did I know they'd come with so much fervor.

Despite that, IMO the only real considerations are:
Where are your friends? Your personal online multiplayer can make or break half of the games out there.
Where are your games? Honestly, if your into solely sports and Ubisoft games,(and you like the controller) maybe you should stick with the Xbox.
Where are your movies? Small point, but you do get a nice HD player with either console. It's not like you can't have both, but I'd prefer to stick with one format.

I told myself I'd avoid comment here, because this will inevitably degrade to a flame war, but I guess this is a weak moment

I own both 360 Elite and a PS3.

If i had to choose just one console, i would definitely go with the PS3 just cuz of all the stuff it has or comes with it ! Its like a media center to me.

I have both.
Right now, XBL is a better service. The PS3 is rock solid reliable.
I play most of the Ubisoft games and R6V is better on the 360 but GRAW2 is
better on the PS3.
I would add a PS3 and keep your 360 so you can play the exclusives.

Frankly, I think owning both consoles is the way to go. The PS3 is definitely coming around gameswise (really enjoying Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction) but there are also just too many good exclusive games on the 360 to ignore). If you have the space and the budget, I say keep them both.

BTW, I really prefer the 360's pad layout over the PS3's; especially when it comes to the resistance of the analog triggers. Driving games (which is one of my favorite genres) are practically unplayable on the PS3 for me because of the placement of the analog sticks and the trigger resistance. I'd pay good money if somebody would release a good, wireless PS3 pad that mimicked the 360 layout and response of the triggers.

I agree about the controller. The 360 is the best ergonomic controller out there. As for the PS3, well I haven't played a game on it in 6 months and actually loaned it out to a friend. It has been gone a month and I haven't even noticed. You would have to be nuts to get rid of the 360 at this point.

it depends on what you prefer... in all honesty, i prefer the PS3's games over the 360. the only games i would want to play on 360 are Forza 2, Gears of War, BioShock and maybe Mass Effect. i can play BioShock and Gears of War on PC (soon) and GT5 should satisfy my "racing sim" needs.

i could easily buy a 360 to add to my PS3, but i'm very satisfied with my PS3 as both a gaming machine, blu-ray/upscaling DVD player. i even use it to surf the net once in a while if the PC is in use.

if you have both to begin with, then its a no brainer to keep them.

If I told my wife I had 4,000 posts on a video game message board, I'm sure she'd question wtf my goals in life were. But then again, that's why it says you're a "special member" underneath your login name.

Maybe you don't know this, but this isn't a "video game message board". This is an AV site, as per the name. Video games are one small part of this board. Yes, I post here 3 to 4 post per day on average, but you would be surprised at how easy it is to have a full life outside of that. With that other 23 hours and 45 minutes I've managed to have a wife, kids, and maintain a successful law practice. So maybe if you explained that to your wife she would understand more about your goals.

But beyond that, the problem with your post is that it is a naked attempt to attack the xbox 360. I have both consoles, like both consoles, and don't really like it when people start a thread that is such a transparent attempt at trolling.

Even though this is the PS3 forum, it's verboten to come in here and start a thread to do nothing more than beat up on the 360 - which is what this thread is all about. It would have been better if you would have kept this important subject to yourself, because all it will lead to is people saying "I like the PS3 better", "no, I like the 360 better". Stupid stuff, which is probably what you were after.
