Should I trade my PS3 for a 360?

I have only a few my days until the end of my return policy for my ps3 is up. Ive seriously been considering trading it for a 360. I love playing gears of war but I do like the blu-ray player from the ps3. Plus there are just so many more games for the 360 but im a hardcore final fantasy fan. AH! somone help me make a decision!

Id say no. The only reason there are so many games is because it was launched a year earlier. Looks like BR is going to be the dominant/sole HD video format anyways. Once real games that can utilize BRs capabilities start coming out the 360 wont be at the same level. Unless of course they offer a BR add-on or continue HD DVD just for games. Or I guess they can release games on multi discs. Like 15-20 LOL

I have both (actually two 360's), and the PS3 is junk in comparison. The UI is soooo much better on the 360 than on the PS3, plus there's no decent games for the PS3. I pretty much already retired it as a Blu-ray player only. If I have a choice of platform for the same game, I always choose 360 now. Plus, I use it as a streaming media server from one of my Vista PCs.

The PS3 has had plenty of time to get decent games to come out by now, but have not delivered. The 360 did have a headstart, but the gaming experience is so much better.

I wish there were a lot better games out for the PS3, but I pretty much gave up on it.

the 360 is the way to go, no doubt... games r 10x better, internet gaming is 10x better. PS3 is the biggest let down in terms of games and game play. Also, i've had my 360 since it came out w/ no issues.

plus! we have a 360 and a ps3 here in the apartment.....the 360 is currently not working AGAIN and is on its 3rd trip to get worked on. microsh*t sucks. I call the 360 the HALO 3 machine because that's the only game worth getting they might as well build it into the hard drive and sell it like that.

halo 3 is over rated, COD4 is 10x better. And although u may have trouble with you 360, i've yet to have to return mine to microsoft for repair.
and i seriously can't believe you think ps3 has better games unless all you play is sports game, which are overated

but its all personal preference and no need to debate or flame over the subject

Ummm I've played online with COD3, and few other games and never had to pay anything...

I think the pay2play is mostly based on specific games, usually MMORPG's.:wink:

And yeah...Microsh*t sucks...Halo 3 is the only game that made me think about getting a 360...then I snapped to my senses, at least with a PS3 I still play my PS2 until more ps3 come out...the selection is pretty poor right now.

Also, not sure if it's a concern, but the 360's controllers weight a ton compared to ps3's (talking wireless)

I have both and use my ps3 mostly for blu-ray movies and 360 for gaming.

Halo 3 is the most overrated game eva! It sux! Try some COD4 and Battlefield bad company when it comes out in march.
