    so because the ps3 goes beyond your traditional console capabilities it is shitty and should burn in hell? and there are several games where the video quality of games is better than that of the xbox360. and so what if people buy the ps3 for 1 game? isnt that their decision. do they call you stupid and ignorant for NOT buying a ps3? and having a blu-ray player that is in the top tier of players available for the same price as a stand alone player is great. i like watching high def movies so it was the easy choice for me over the xbox. every console is geared to a certain demographic, so to call one group stupid and ignorant is like saying people who like driving small cars to save on gas are stupid because they are sacrificing the security of a big SUV. please, grow up. dont make me write this again.

    I dunno what is wrong with kieran. He has much hate over the ps3, its like the ps3 boned his dog or something. Then he says he does not like consoles, but they he raves about the 360 like it was holy. Its been very tempting over the few months to report him/her to a mod. I have told him/her before to stop swearing and using colorful language, especially when make a persuasive post. Makes you less serious and makes you more like a douche.

    People dont seem to remember one thing.
    The PS3 has not had a high failure rate like the Xbox360.
    I know and have heard a lot of people didnt get an Xbox360 bc of this and got a PS3 instead.

    That may be your opinion, but I've seen many 3 month sells figures that disagree with you. Games like Killzone 2, Resistance 2, Metal Gear Solid 4, and Socom are expected to sell more than FF13.

    with more game lineups coming about this year, its plausible that it will outsell the 360. I love my 360, the games are awesome, but its loadtimes arent anything to write home to mom about. The graphics are nice and bright, but I say the PS3s are better.

    I hate when silly people post comments like this. the PS3 SDK was released to software developers at the same time the 360 SDK was, so this aint a good enough reason.

    its a simply maths (or money) problem. why make one game for one system for 50million when you can make 2 or 3 for another system. the products you have out there the more likely you have a better return. investers dont like the eggs all in one basket scenario.

    sony will continue to promote the PS3, but looking a the sales figures for christmas and jan, the PS3 is still looking like a weak 3rd. currently its advantage is that it can play blu-ray disk, soon they will be $200 (or £150) or cheaper blu-ray players, so what advantage will they be then?

    It makes a way better media player, especially on a home network without Vista or Media Center.
