hello... sorry i know with the last post being long, i shouldn't come back for more, yet there's one thing not to forget here: The PC cannot be considered in a next-gen console war, why!? The PC isn't just a gaming machine, some consoles try to be like a PC but a PC is more than just a blu-ray drive (it can also copy LOL), it is more than a limited by GFX/Sound machine, it is the one really doing everything. The PS3 is what comes closer in terms of functionality & has 'true PS3 AAA Exclusives" The Xbox360 is the one that comes near with "Shared Exclusive titles" The WII comes next as a fun, gaming spirit & milking old franchise. The PC is the master of it all, but piracy kills it. I really want LAN games back For PS3 vs Xbox360 Online play, i'm sorry i can't really compare for never tried XBLA, but i don't see why some would say that it's bad on the PS3, Come ON, even on a 512K ADSL connexion i can play online with a few to no lag at all! Have anyone checked the PS Store lately !? As for games themselves, they are what will move a system, 2009 was SONY's year & with what's coming in 2010 i'm sure it will help boost the sale with or without 3D or Arc. If someone has the money for a PC, go for it, but if you also want to buy a console, choose in function of which game you want. If you want Gears of War (3rd party, may one day be no more MS Exclusive - most Xbox hits are like that) go for an Xbox360, if you want God of War, you have no choice but to go Playstation. cheers!
