After a long, long time of waiting, I finally saw the chance to get a cheap Playstation 3 with a couple o' games and what not... So I took it. And I'm pretty glad I did too cause finally I'm no longer bound to the "ITS A ____ EXCLUSIVE!" bullshit that melted people's brains into believing there were sides to be chosen. Feels good to own Metal Gear Solid 4 and Killzone 2, while also owning Halo 3 and Gears of War. All at the same time.
Cause they're all good games, but that's not the only reason why I'm so happy with having both consoles. The PS3 menu's are nice, slick and amazingly user friendly. But at the same time, it's by no means a contender to the Xbox Live Marketplace. With the PS3 I can access the internet and even watch video's on YouTube, whereas the Xbox allows me to rent and watch entire HD movies. Now that I own both I've got alot more choice, and alot more to do.
It's a great, great system. Abeit a bit bulky, but that problem seems to be fixed with the upcoming PS3 Slimline.
Either way, I'm alot more happier with having both right now. Turning on the PS3 to watch some copyrighted junk on YouTube, followed by playing some MGS4 which is to be fair a clunky B-movie with awesome gameplay, to which I then turn on the X360, have easy access to a friendslist and hit up GTAIV Party Mode with buddies.
Although, there is ONE thing I'm biased about. And thats the controller, while the PS3 Dualshock/SIXAXIS controller is lightweight and easy to manage, the X360 controller feels more natural and... there's something about having my thumbs hit eachother everytime I need to make a complicated move that gets on my nerves. I'll always prefer the X360 controller.
Anyway, my online ID... I think it's called a "PlayStation Network ID" is Lt McBadass. Go ahead if you wanna add me... If they got somesort of friend-system on it.
