You dont pick consoles based on the consoles
you pick them based on the games that are exclusive. check the lists / read recommendations. then make a pick of what suits you the most. the xbox360 clearly has the most games out on the market.. but ofc. the ps3 has alot of good exclusives too
PERSONALLY... I'm a pc gamer, but i do have a ps3 as well for those special games that just doesnt exist on the pc (like ninja gaiden and gran turismo 5.. and of course tekken)
My pc is just SO MUCH more awesome than a console and i'd never ever trade "down" to a console only. I had that when i was younger and too poor to have a pc. now... i never regretted spending a fortune on this pc.
Of course. a console is awesome if you play 3-5 hours straight.
I only play Â½-2 hours then i take a break for 30 minutes and browse the web or chat with friends etc. Then i got back to gaming or watch a movie on youtube etc.
On a console, you either play, or its turned off. Simple as that. (YEs i can browse the web and use a horrible chat system to talk to my friends (none of which actually use their ps3s
) but its just so much better on a pc.
on top of that i seem to hear a lot of people having problems with the consoles these days..
Theres another option..
its called "onlive" they got this tiny console for tv's (dont know if its on the market yet) but the pc software works decently imo. You can check that out.
Still i wouldnt recommend you going away from pc gaming..
most pc gamers got a console... most prefer the pc
also.. who doesnt love a keyboard + mouse compared to a joypad ?
