Live currently is the best gaming network out there right now.

PS3 Network
70 Million Devices (Playstation, PSP, etc)
20 Million Users
180 Million in revenue

Xbox Live
26 Million Devices (Xbox only)
17 Million Users
1 Billion in revenue ( Not counting the XBL Memberships which is a little over HALF of the 17 Million users roughly 425 Million)

Xbox is running its services at roughly the same cost as sony and earning more revenue.
Sony is making less then 20% of what Xbox Live makes from its network.

http://weblogs.variety.com/the_cut_scene/2009/02/comparing-playstation-network-and-xbox-live-revenue-is-what-matters.html

Xbox has more money to fund its network and make it more enjoyable with more features that are easy to use.

Playstation has enough money to just keep the network free as an enticement to sell their ps3s and psps.

You seemed to have missed the fact that my PROCESSOR costs more then your pc. Therefore your basis about me caring only about graphics is off base. By the way when trying to point out flaws in someones arguement you shouldn't contradict yourself outright like you did.
" Who gives a shit about the graphics as long as the game play is smooth and the "GRAPHICS" are top notch." Anyway get out of here. I don't banter with people that run in circles.

Time for you to get re-educated. Graphics are not Aesthetics thus you lose, Good day sir.

i love reading forums and getting enticed by the lovely arguement battles that ensue,way to go you lovely souls, LOLZ...

but yeah... i'm a ps3 fellow myself. i've wanted to tryout the 360 for a while but don't got the cash at the moment. i'm used to the controller of ps though and i've grown up on sony so that's where my heart is. but as long as the games is good i don't mind if its on my psp, ps3, ps2, ds, 64 or NES. just as long as i can play it more than the one timeright after purcahse.

I'll stick to 360. I play games with friends a lot, which means that sometimes I'll play Call of Duty, but I can say with a certainty that I've had very, very few games just drop out on me during SSF4 or BBCS. All in all it does boil down to personal preference, but I've just never had a problem paying extra for my hobby.

PS3 rules...!!

Better design, the controller is way better ( you need two people to hold the xbox controller JK), free internet (yes i am cheap) and in my opinion it have better games (Killzone, Uncharted, Gran Turismo etc).....

Maybe it lacks on internet but you can always switch to gold....

Define real gamer. I've been gaming for longer than the op of this thread has been alive, and yet my preference is for the Wii, then 360 for current-gen home consoles. Considering that, to me, a real gamer is someone who plays games in earnest for fun, the system shouldn't matter. So the obvious answer to your question is yes. If you're looking for more of a fanboy-baited argument, then it's a whole different can of worms...

PC gaming is generally more expensive up front, but you have to take into account that most people will own a computer whether they game on it or not. This means you're going to be spending money on a computer anyway. Games are also generally a fair bit cheaper than their console equivalents, and no fees for online services like live (and not tied down to a single online system for all games, in the event they go down).

I built my other computer about 4 years ago for around £800 and it can still run games pretty well, although unfortunately a lot of pre build gaming PCs are overpriced.

Not going to say PC gaming is for everyone, it definitely isn't, a console is much easier for the average Joe to buy and just play. I've got both a PS3 and 360, both are great in their own rights. The online on 360 is generally better of course, but it's just ended up most of the exclusives I've been interested in are on the PS3, so I own quite a few more games on that. It's all down to personal preference really, how some people go on and are just massive fanboys of a certain system is silly.

But at heart I'm a PC gamer, like the freedom to mod and play around with things. Plus I prefer mouse and keyboard for a lot of game types, especially FPS, I really just don't like playing first person shooters with a console controller after playing them with mouse and keyboard for so long.

(Sorry if this post is long and makes no sense at all, I probably shouldn't be posting at 3:30am. )

since when did this become /v/, no console is better than a other one. It's the games that make a console or PC gaming worth while. I could care less if I was playing games on my I Phone as long as I am having fun and enjoying the games I am playing. Hell I have more fun playing visual novels on the pc now then playing random fps games. I so lets keep this up people, come on flame away.

I have all three. Looking at games, I prefer my PS3 more for multiple reasons.
- Exclusive count is much higher
- Free Online
- Online Browser
- Don't need to pay live to use Netflix
- It really can pretty much do everything. Sadly I can't drive it.

Things that put the 360 down for me
- I got it about a year ago
- Everything is to simple... I like advanced since you can do more
- I barely play online games

Wii
- Motion gaming isn't any fun alone
- More of a party system
- I never play it, lol

Pretty much I can't say anything bad about the PS3. That's why for me I would choose the PS3 over them all for gaming. I even get all my non-exclusive titles for the PS3 because of this.

Real Gamers most likely have both consoles.

But that depends what a Real Gamer prefer, because that is subjective, it's preference and opinion.

Just because a ''Real Gamer'' prefer a PS3 doesn't mean Xbox 360 is not worth it, and viceversa. Those are preferences and opinions which mean are subjective.

Also, there are Casual and Core Gamers.

''Live currently is the best gaming network out there right now.''

1.- It is not, if you mean by consoles, is just an opinion.

In general Gaming, PC owns PS3 and Xbox 360 combined when it comes to Online Gaming, and that is a Fact.
PC have free and more advanced features for Online gaming, an example: Steam.

The only thing lacking about PSN is the Cross Voice Game Chat.

Console wise. Xbox. Easier to play. I'm not a tiny asian, I despise playstation controllers. They have made 3 systems now. Yet, won't change to a better controller.

All the exclusive games? They pretty much cancel each other out. I have never really been impressed with any of them in recent years. Halo Reach is a disappointment.


I still enjoy the good shooters that all these "MLG gamers" over look. CS 1.6, Unreal, and Quake. If you can't play those competitively , then just play games for fun.

Wait a second... all those games are on PC.

Bullshit. You can get ass for free. It's all how you play the game. Did I just make a pun?
