Sell Me on a PS3
I posted this same topic over at GameTZ where I've been a member for many years. Since the member base is bigger here, I'm posting this same topic again.
I'm looking for many different opinions, thoughts, persuasions as to why I should own a Playstation 3.
I currently do all my gaming on a iMac (running Windows 7 Ultimate under bootcamp), PSP Slim, iPod Touch 32GB 3rd Gen, and a Xbox 360. I love the Xbox 360 the most. It's noise level is annoying, but I've learned to live with it. I don't have a blu-ray player, but I do have a few blu-ray movies I picked up along the way cheap.
Just being generally curious, I'm wondering if I'm missing anything by not owning or playing a Playstation 3. Graphics are nice, but I'm more interested in general gameplay here. I like the sense of community and multiplayer I find with my paid membership to Xbox Live. I found enough cheap deals on time cards that I have 2 and a half years prepaid. I had an Xbox 360 die on me once under warranty. I took it back to BestBuy and had a replacement within an hour. I don't have any RROD horror stories.
So what am I missing? Sell me on blu-ray, game sharing, exclusive titles, likes & gripes, whatever. Point me to some youtube comparison videos. Either way I will be using blu-ray soon, I just haven't decided if I want it to be via a PS3 or a general blu-ray player. Local stores here are selling a Panasonic BD60 for $120. It's very tempting but I'm still weighing it against a PS3.
If it makes any difference, I have owned a PS1, PS2, PS2 Slim, Original Xbox, etc. I hated the original Xbox, didn't care for the PS2 regular or slim, really liked the PS1.
