Free online, most open console without hacking, minimalistic UI, best media functionality, best 1st party studios.

Forgot to add most future proof hardware, there will be a time when 3D is just an addition to every HDTV, and not a premium feature.

Media streaming services are pretty great on PS3. No sign ups required, unlike the Zune Marketplace on the Xbox. Though a Sky Player would be more than welcome.

Oh I see we have a hater. Sound the alarm...

I see no point in these threads..........


Im a Xbox 360 personally but I find the PS3 power to be amazing and the free online is a great plus.

But again, without things like my previous post, this thread (and the rest) is pretty ****ty.

I agree somewhat, but hey, it's better than having flame wars.

What media streaming service is available on the PS3 in the US with no sign up?

Not 100% sure, but he may mean you don't need PSN+ or XBL Gold equivalent for Netflix. Not sure what that has to do with Zune Marketplace, tho, I know nothing about that, but thought it was like an iTunes.
