Yeah. I'd really like to find a few good reasons (games) to keep it. I bought it without thinking because I thought it would go out of stock too quick. I never bothered to keep up with the 360's library all these years. Didn't realize both PS3 and 360 shared so many titles until afterwords.
But yeah, so far, Forza is still my only "must try" game. Maybe Tales of Vesperia. Thanks for the recommendations, though, Sagum.
You can kind of 'thank' Sony for the lack of exclusive rights for games on a console. When the first xbox was released, Microsoft found it super hard to gain any ground with publishers because Sony had tied all the publishers up with exclusive rights and was one of the ways they helped stave off other consoles back in the day. People said the xbox would flop because of Sony's dominance in the console market and the original xbox kind of did flop to an extent. However, Microsoft leant pretty quickly and by the time the 360 was released, they were boasting they had signed up near all Sony's past publishers of exclusive titles. That's pretty much why we have so many cross platform titles now with little to no exclusive games. Its more about exclusive DLC now.
In saying that, I'm more of a PC gamer and while I do own an xbox I only powered it on last night to perform the system update.
The only thing right now that sets the 360 apart from the PS3 is Kinect (should look into them if you're planning on keeping it as something 'different') and lack of bluray support. But even then, PSMove for most will make up for Kinect.
Personally, if you can live without the few Microsoft published studio titles, I'd use it for a year playing some of the online games and then sell it and buy more PS3 games.
