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.
