One thing I am not is a Sony Fanboy, at least I hope I am not. In this instance they are by a huge margin the much better of the two evils.
If you check quite a lot of my past posts, they have been my lambasting Sony on their attitude for the HD-DVD/Blu-Ray format war situation
I was the firm backer of HD-DVD, and was hoping for them to win, they did not so I was forced to buy a PS3 for my hidef playback
From that I was actually amazed with what I had been putting up with when owning an Xbox360, as the PS3 is a much better made console, its completely silent and runs much better
When I said hardware wise I wasn’t talking about comparing the memory, Graphics Card performance or CPU (even though I believe the PS3 has a more powerful CPU, but the Xbox360 has like you say the more powerful GPU).
What I was talking about is how pathetically made these Xbox360’s are. You say you are a PC owner, which shows why you do not understand the plight of an Xbox360 owner, the Xbox360’s, in particularly the Xenons are the most pathetic poorly made piece of trash ever made.
They are also guarenteed to sooner or later fail, and usually sooner, and Microsoft do not care.</p>
The three year warranty is a serious red herring as they just keep repairing the console with more Xenon parts, knowing they will just sooner fail again, and not with the Jasper or Falcons. Wouldn’t you put that down as poor hardware?
If you had a CPU/GPU in your PC that is almost guarenteed to self destruct within a year or so, and the manufacturer doesn’t care, but is also going around gloating how much money they made off selling that defective CPU/GPU to people. Would you then recommend to your friends to buy that CPU/GPU. Or would you recommend them to not touch it with a barge pole?
Furthermore Left 4 Dead, which I agree is an absolutely superb game, behind Call of Duty the best FPS game ever made, is coming to the PS3 this year.
Once Microsoft start getting their act together on correctly repairing the Xbox360’s, and not just simply giving people more Xenons, and then just a 3 month warranty on repaired consoles, as replacements, then I may reconsider what I said. (but by that time it will be too cold in hell to type anything anyway).
