what 360 games do you prefer over ps3 games? or is it just the online community that you like better?

I don't understand the whole online argument these days.. It's outdated as phuck imo. It use to be valid but today whats the difference. If anythign ps3 psn is better than live for the simple fact its free.

According to previous threads and my friend (who owns both) The only thing XBOX has over Ps3 is

1: Halo
2: Forza
3: Better online community and **** like that

Ps3 has better graphics (or so im pretty sure, and it supports 1080p and such) and xbox only supports like 720p if i remember correctly.. Other then that, it doesnt have ps3 only games such as KZ3 and GT5. (i think kz3 not sure)...and fyi i hate racing games but gt5 looks too good to pass up.. Also free online and more reliable for the most part (prob fixed xbox by now)

lol wow...I don't even know what to say about this /\ I mean where do people get this information from?



Anyway OP, get the PS3. You get the best of both worlds having them both.

my xbox collects dust. not even worth watching netflix on it anymore since ps3 got the firmware update that allows 1080i streaming

Vrahhhh

Nah bro its a social thing. PSN is boring as fuk to play on IMO. I played on both system, I'm acutally more of a ps3 fanboy but socially 360 is funner IMO.

Not to take away from psn gameplay is the same IMO but i just like the 360 social aspect.

360 does 1080p.

Only reason I have a 360 is because I have it modded to play backups, if I couldn't mod it, then I'd be on a ps3

Online community better for Xbox 360 IMO. I prefer PS3 myself because of the 1st party software. I really don't buy games anymore, just FIFA yearly. PS3 has blue ray which is a great added bonus. If you can afford to have both than worth it. I've just been too lazy to fix my PS3 and get a new HDD.

360 is *better* for online, more people use mics (biggest thing imo)

i'm too cheap to pay to play online so i have a ps3
OP you might as well buy a ps3 anyway, you're gonna want a blu-ray player eventually

gran turismo 5 / metal gear solid 4 / little big planet / uncharted 2 / god of war 3 /
can't go wrong with any of those ps3-only titles

ps3 is amazing. uncharted 2 is the best game ever, blueray is the ****, and free online is incredible if you think of 12x$15 for like 5 yrs straight tahts A LOT of money you save with ps3. lets just see $180 per year, so over 5 yrs thats almost $1k just for not paying for online...

Seems like you're hesitating on the PS3 bro. A landslide vote for the PS3 and dozens of posts telling you the pros of a PS3, but you're still not convinced.
PS3 owner here.

OP, if you're really unsure then stick with the Xbox, seeing as you had it before and liked it. Never had an xbox so my opinion would be pretty biased.

Why are people using better online community (mics) as an argument for xbox?...

...the worst thing about playing online is having to mute all those annoying pricks on their mics.
