Not jealous, I have no use for Bluray (I have an upconverting DVD player), there is only one game I remotely care about that is only on the PS3 (MGS), oh and I didn't pay $500 for my 360. (Yes I know it went down after they gimmped it) I might, might consider getting a 60 GB launch machine, but I refuse on principle to get anything else because if I do get one I want HARDWARE backward compatibility. Funny they hammered Microsoft on the 360 having only software backward compatibility but they quietly go to that on their next model and even more quietly get rid of it all together. Sony is a bunch of hypocrites.

No read ring for me and I've had my 360 for over a year and play it regularly. I did make sure to get the newer MoBo that was designed after the intitial RRoD.
Oh, and I have a PS3...and Wii
Honestly though, each have their good points. As far as gaming consoles go, I'm 360 all the way unless there is a platform-specific game (read MGS). I use my PS3 for blu-ray, and that's it.
Gamespot did a nice review of graphics between the two, and they look near same. Everyone reading this thread should go check it out.

If it makes anyone feel better, Sony put themselves in a big nasty hole over the PS3. I wished my wife woulda waited a few years for the PS3 to come down in price.. but she got me one of the first ones to hit the shelves with 60 GB and Backward compatibility. My friend got screwed because he wouldn't wait 2 damn weeks and got a 40 GB with no Backward compatibility when he coulda got an 80GB. I won't dog Sony products because everything I have bought Sony so far has lasted forever. But it does suck to get the 3 Death Lights. My friend has a 360 and I warned him that he would probably get it so he better get ready to send that baby back.

Sorry to hear dude. Ive gone though this before too.
360 breaks down easier then a folding table, PS3 is too expensive, and Wii isn't high def.
On the flipside, 360 has an extensive library of games (for 360), PS3 is reliable (Doesn't over heat, free online service, huge PS2 library (if you have the 60 or 80), and Wii is well it's wii, you can play pretty much anything you've ever played on any nintendo system on it.
There you go. Stop being bias, it makes you look like an elitist idiot.
I've got 360 and PS3 and heres the current states:
-360: Broken for 3rd time (Mother board fried, disc tray jam, and finally RROD), pain in the ass all around-really disappointed. Didn't get to play Bioshock or Halo 3, no GOW2, no L4D now, and Im tired of getting it fixed, sending it away, waiting and waiting, so it sits under my tv stand collecting dust, I sold all my games for it and controllers.
-PS3: Broken once (Burnt out the laser), fixed easily, took a while to get it back, but it works perfect now. And luckily I can play Bioshock on it now! Im not too upset about GOW or Halo 3, but I really wanted L4D ad the new GTA IV expansion...
However Im more then content with Resistance 2, LBP, Home (Im in the beta), Killzone 2 (In the beta as well), and MGS4.
All in all 360 was awesome while it lasted, but I've gotten more run time from my PS3. Both are about equal (save for extras such as blu-ray player in PS3 and included headset with 360) when in working condition.
This christmas we are getting a Wii. So I'll be able to try that out extensively as well. And eventually Im going to buy another 360 just for L4D and the exclusive GTAIV content.

Hey guys, help me out!!
Last gaming system I had was a Sega Genesis, and before that, an Atari 2600. Yeah. My lady got me a 360 Arcade this weekend, has little hd and no back compatibility. Do I need to return it and get the 360 Pro 60G hd? Only $100 price difference. I will never be into online gaming, all I want to play is Guitar Hero, soccer, hockey, Mortal Kombat vs DC.
And do I need to get the 2yr warranty at the store where I purchase it?
Any answers/help would be appreciated, thanks.

I had one problem with my PS3 and that was because we shocked it. Walking on the carpet seemed to shock us when we touched the tv, etc. Well, this time, as I went to eject a game, I felt a strong shock, and then it stopped reading software.
I sent it paid in a box they sent me and they replaced it for free and shipped it back, for free. took about 2 1/5 weeks.
If you think about it, 360 owners talk about how fast the turn around is for when you get a RRoD. That means, microsoft KNOWS these are messing up, and instead of fixing the problem before they ship them to stores, they build up a surplus to ship out as replacements.
The one reason I hate 360 is Microsoft. Their products are crap and even their own employees admit it. Vista anyone? Blue screen of death anyone? yeah, business as usual at Microsoft.
