for me it was the very strong exclusives/first party titles. i just couldn't resist them any longer, five years is long enough to hold out!

I bought my PS3 mainly as a cheap alternative Blu-ray playback device. I'm a massive fan of movies so wanted to upgrade my experience. I've used both the PS3 and Xbox for streaming media from my own media server and have found that the PS3 tends to be a lot more responsive. Both consoles are equally compatible with a number of container formats but the PS3 has a slight edge due to the advancement of PS3MediaServer (which transcodes .mkv files on the fly). The same program does run with the Xbox but it's somewhat laggy. Windows Media Player handles streaming very well, however, but still lacks in the container compatibility deparment.

In terms of games, I don't overly have a preference for either console. Almost every game I have is cross-platform and each console handles them well (with the Xbox taking a slight lead with shaders and framerates) but overall I don't see a difference. I don't prefer the PS3 for its ability to play games, but for everything else.

I bought my PS3 as a Playstation user for years, but i also have a 360 for their exclusives. i've always said it's the games that count. If the console can run the game without any hickups and problems, then that'll do fine. If it's not a perfect PC port, then i'll get it for PC. But i have over 40 games for the PS3 and only about 6 for the Xbox. Free online is a massive win win situation, all my friends got the playstation also. I guess that's the only reasons.

I had to replace my console a couple of months ago, i miss the big bulky original!.

Yeah I miss the bulk and shine of the original, but I do prefer the fact that my slim is pretty quiet now, my fatty was awful for fan noise.

I agree with that, i think i prefer the original as i feel the slim looks stupidly cheap.

I miss my bulky PS3 as now I have to connect my PS2 and PS1 to play the hundreds of games that I have collected for it. I like the UI and they have some really good exclusive games such as Gran Turismo, God of War, Killzone.

If you have replaced with a slim then there is no need to connect a PS1 it will play those games fine.

Yeah it plays PS1's fine, unfortunately and a horrid reason they didn't choose to support ps2 backwards compatibility. Which is absurd, but thankfully alot of us still have our PS2's set up. Can't knock abit of Resident Evil 4 every now and again.

Although, alot of ps2 games have been flooding the store lately, quick $$$.

Xbox is a peice of sh*t PS3 offers us quality gaming to its fullest in a console, some great exclusives usualy containing losts of features packed into one disc, extremly detailed graphics n uptodate, PS Home a virtual world where ps fans can chat, free content and online, the community its self is not filled with @ssholes like tht of Xbox PS3 ppl are pretty chill, its good looking it self why u think all other consoles are being colored black? BEST SYSTEM, BEST GAMES, QUALITY, IT ONLY DOES EVERYTHING, IM OUT NUFF SAID

I just posted this on my Facebook and spotted this topic, so I thought I would share the primary reason I love the PS3 over other consoles. I could get into a whole discussion about what games are available on it, but that's really kind of a subjective topic. I love MGS4, GoW (God of War), and Killzone, and think a lot of the cross-platform games run better on the PS3, but some people prefer titles on the other consoles. Anyway, here's what I wrote.

I've got to hand it to Sony, they really did an awesome job with the PS3. I had one XBox 360 die and I've got friends who have gone through 5 or more due to hardware failures. I had my first Xbox 360 for only about a year and a half before it started giving me the red ring of death. I bought a second one, but sold it shortly after buying my PS3. I've had the same PS3 now for over 3 and a half years, and even when I'm not playing a game it pretty much stays on all day so my wife and baby can watch Netflix and Hulu Plus since we don't have cable. I've never had it give me the first problem, or even the first indication of any problem. If it died today it will have doubled the life of my first Xbox 360, and it has spent the majority of that time running for at least 8 hours a day in some capacity, every single day of the week.
