Still, the title selection on the XBOX 360 is richer (just consider great franchises like Gears of War and Halo), despite PS3’s slightly more powerful hardware. Indeed, the free online play of the PS3 is being a plus (not to mention that XBOX LIVE is not available in some countries, while PSN, as far as I know, is literally global). Then again, I would pick the XBOX 360 over its competitors. When and if the XBOX 360 Bly-ray disc addon will be released, there will be even more value attached to Microsoft’s already excellent console (ignoring, for a moment, the issues of scratched game discs and failing hardware).
One thing though: I will still buy a PS3, just in order to play God of War III, right on the day of the title’s release in my country (they better prepare those hardware + software discounted bundles! ). that’s how you attract consumers to buy your hardware; you release super-attractive, exclusive, “can not miss no matter what” content.
Just my two cents. Have a nice day everyone.
