360 withdrawals.

I am in my second week of a self imposed 360 hiatus. I told myself after I reach the 150,000 gamer score mark I would try to give my PS3 and Wii some love. Alan Wake was the game that got me there and I immediately wanted to play thru it again. I was able to fight back the urge and popped in my copy of Infamous that I have been trying to finish for about 4 months now. Great game, but I am not having as much fun as I did with Crackdown. 3D Dot Game Heroes was entertaining until about the half way point. The Wii was feed a copy of Super Mario Sunshine from the GC area. That game looks like ass on an HDTV. I also think that I might not like that "try again and again until you get it" game play.  
 
At any rate, I guess I am just a fanboy that loves his 360 too much. I am going to finish Infamous this week, be damned, then it is back to Bright Falls for this guy.  
BUY ALAN WAKE!

Yeah - it's just the inherent fanboy in a lot of us. I usually am even-handed when it comes to discussions, but when it comes down to playing games, I simply enjoy a better experience on the Playstation 3. It's something I've noticed with the GiantBomb crew and their slight preference to the 360, but for anyone to find any issues with that would have to be an idiot. To gaming!

@Zero_: I can't quite put my finger on why the PS3 isn't more compelling to me. I like it, but I don't love it. Blu-ray movies are awesome and the games I have played have been good. There are just little things like trophy syncing and PSN Store timeouts that get annoying. What games would you recommend that are exclusive to the PS3? I have the God of War Collection that I want to start on if I can finish Infamous. I just picked up the first Uncharted game as well.

If you played the prior MGS games MGS4 is the best game for that system, otherwise I would say Uncharted 2.
