Leaving PC gaming soon, what console should I buy? - Page 12

post #111 of 134
My personal opinion owning all 3 platforms. I'm only keep the xbox for forza. The exclusives are pretty bad imo. Halo was kinda fun but the franchise is really getting stale, and gow just sucks imo. I dig the ps3 exclusives a lot more. Metal gear, little big planet, god of war, drake uncharted. I also personally find the ps3 controller to be much better. the xbox feels fat and heavy. Ps3 is slim and smooth. Honestly both of my systems pretty much collect dust. But if I do get on and use one its the ps3. The Free online is a huge plus and really xbox live is nothing to write home about. Between the two the ps3 does just fine and to me it has better exlusives, better controller, and the blu ray player is always a plus.

I'd get a PS3. The Xbox is only great if you want to play shooters on it, which I find retarded on a controller...The PS3 has more innovative titles and not to mention, Steamworks.

PS3, the online sux, but the exclusives cmin out are just mouth watering. Resistance 3, Unchartered 3, the Remakes of Shadow of the Colossus and ICO, The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy Versus (not Final Fantasy XIII - 2 which looks promising tho), you can get old gems like heavy rain, Unchartered 2, Killzone, LBP.

I own a Xbox and the main exclusives are Halo and Gears of War. Though it is better for local multiplayer ( best is still Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii ), the number of exclusives isn't as much as the PS3.

I have a PS3 and 2 Xbox's. The PS3 collects dust, mainly because the controller is trash
The controller is trash? Lol, okay. They are identical when I use them. Literally, I can use either one and not notice a difference, except maybe the feel of the 360's face buttons since they are rounded and the PS3's are flat.

The online is better? Again, lol. They are, (again) identical, except with the Xbox you pay for it, and the PS3 is free. If you mean more people play on Live, yeah, that's true. But big deal? A ton of people own the 360, and a ton of people own the PS3. If you're trying to insinuate that you won't find any people to play with on PSN, you're just talking out your ass.

I'd love to hear why you think the online sucks. Because they got hacked? Whooptee do, that happens, it's back up now.

It's such a wrong thing to say really, because from my experience, the online is practically identical between the PS3 and the 360, it's just that there's this idiotic misconception that somehow the PS3's online is inferior. I myself find there to be virtually no difference.

Pretty much this. But if you want to play shooters, just use a PC. We all know it's king in that department.


Damn, now everyone's going to think I'm a PS3 fanboy. See, that's the problem with today's market. The bastards have convinced the consumers that if you're not for their console, you must be against it, and thus a fanboy. You try remaining objective and then get called a fanboy... bah. Like I said earlier though, if this were 3 or 4 years ago, I'd be singing praises for the 360, as its biggest weakness was RROD, but it was miles ahead of the PS3 at the time.

See it's comments like these that make me mad. All you say is it has better this and better that but you don't give any examples. Bioshock is ye olde anyway.
