I want to start by saying I've always been an Xbox fanboy of some-sort. Even though i never participate in the flame wars, my console of choice was always Microsoft's.
I've had my 360 for about 4 years, but only purchased my ps3 last year. Still, i always spent more time on my 360, it was always my multi-paltform game choice. After this years E3 though, i can't help but see myself enjoying my Play Station much more in the future. Microsoft showed only shooters as far as exclusives go, and while gears and halo are some of my favorite franchises, I'm starting to feel the fatigue. i don't really have much interest in those franchises anymore, i'm getting sick of shooters, and that's almost the only thing on MS's slate. (NOTE: i said mostly, i know MS has great games, ME2 is my GOTY so far.) On the other hand, Sony is giving me fantastic games of more varied genre's like Infamous and God of War, my favorite game of last year may have been a shooter, Uncharted 2, but it was still varied and was still awesome.
on the motion front, well i have no interest in Kinect, they're chasing after the Wii market and i could care less about the games they have shown. Sony, while still chasing after the casual market, isn't forgetting about me and the games I like. I'm much more likely to try out FIGHT and maybe play U2:AT with move, than cuddle with Skittles,( I got real animals for that.) and play Wii ripoffs.
At the moment, I still prefer xbox Live, and I'm an achievement whore, while trophies just aren't doing it for me. next time i pick up a multiplatform game, it will still be on Xbox, but i can see this easily changing in the near future. more and more im holding a dualshock3 than an xbox controller, and while i look at upcoming games, i realize that it's going to continue.
