"krapy konsole"1.0 starson by godischarge
Pros: Dead rising, Fable2?(havent played it yet looks cool), okay controller, comes with a headset, personal music player in-game. The ease of changing profiles mid-game. The customizable faceplate (thats a pro i suppose)
Cons: I just got the Red Ring(s) for the 4th time. EVERYONE I know has gotten it AT LEAST once . All 360 games are better on the PC. Paying for online services. No web-browser, Blue-Ray, user created game mods, and limited backwards compatibility.
Summary: Since all of the games are either multi-platform or on the PC, this is probably the one console you can absolutely do without. (Use the console exclusively for games that play better with a controller like sports, racing, and fighting games.)
Not using more then 4 controllers at once would suck when playing Pro Evolution Soccer with my friends (on my playstation I can jam with 7).
(Personally i prefer the playstation controller design, plus the ps3 has motion sensing like the Wii.)
Paying for online services (if money is a concern getting a PS3 will save you in the long run). No web browser. Its nice being able to look-up the manuals for games.
Would also eliminate the need for netflix, since you can watch any movie or tv show online for free.
More of a mouse and keyboard FPS player (so there goes half the 360 library)
All of the 360 games are better on the PC (ie Mass Effect, Dead Space, Gears of War).
The only good exclusives that are not on the PC: Saints Row (sequel multi-platform, and its not as good as GTA4), Dead Rising (which is really fun but not worth the cost of itself plus the console)
If you must play Halo for whatever reason, get the arcade and buy your own HDD online ($ave, and you get krapy arcade games, and a useless memory card). Although the ps3 HDD swap is alot easier since it uses a conventional laptop HDD. PS3 allows its users to use any storage device as a memory card (usb jump drive).
Sony also encourages modding of both games and its console, unlike microsoft which doesn't provide any tools for installing an alternate OS. Although you can fit far more DVD images on a HDD then Blue-Ray images.
