The Top Ten

Free Online Gaming
why waste 60 bucks for a whole year to play online
60 bucks that almost another game you couldve bought


I personally am an xbox gamer and this is probably one of the only advantages I see in having a ps3. Most other reasons are just annoying.
people say the connection is better on xbox, the connection is the same, microsoft just wants more money


[Newest]I like free things!

2Exclusive Games
Uncharted, killzone, little big planet, infamous, metal gear solid. And all xbox has is halo, halo isn't that great anyways.
graphically, PS3 game exclusives look MUCH better than 360 exclusives


The halo games are failing now. That's all Xbox has. The graphic difference between the 2 are massive. I don't even understand why this would be a debate. Play station fan forever.
[Newest]YES true no Xbox exclusive can rival the uncharted series and the last of us, it is a masterpiece the best game.

3Chargeable Controllers
PS3 controller still feels great, and more importantly, doesn't require batteries like the 360 controllers. this is a big advantage for PS3 owners because, lets be honest, buying batteries is expensive and just sucks.


The ps3 controllers feel more comfy, the battierys last long as durecell, I wont be wasting 40 bucks on batteries everyear now, Sony your amazing


Yeah but you pay extra
[Newest]Wish the wire was longer though

4It's a Blu-Ray Player
a game system dvd player and blu ray player
it only does everything


I hate all you PlayStation fanboys, this is pathetic do we have to do this console war crap

5Lower System Fail Rate
the ps3 has a fail rate of around 10% whereas the 360 is at like 50%.


I'm not so sure that the XBox fails ~~50 of the time. I don't have an XBox, mind you, but I don't think so many people would have it if the system failed half of the time.

6No Red Ring of Death
I've had my ps3 for about 5 years with no problems at all while xbox's have always had problems.
red ring of death pssshhh u dont get that with ps3


My ps3 I've had for 3years and it runs at the same rate even with hi definitely and has never froze or crashed

7Better Controller
The PS3 controller is easier to hold, and the control sticks are right next to each other (a huge advantage in fps). It's rechargeable, meaning you won't have t buy batteries for it, you plug in to a computer or the system, and it's good. Its also easier to hold in the hand, and is the perfect size for everyone.
The PS3 is almost perfect. The Xbox 360 controller is larger and not as well layed out. In fact, the controller has the left stick and the directional pad layed out in the wrong way. The PS3 is easier to use.
True and its easier to hold the xbox controller is too big. The ps3 controller is perfect size for your hands

8Xbox 360 Has More Viruses
true true true Microsoft just wants more money


You right bro Microsoft needs money

9You Get Trophies on PS3
PS3's have a platinum trophy for every trophy achieved in a game, whereas Xbox doesn't. Some Xbox games don't give you achievements as often as other games, whereas with trophies, PS3 does.
On the Xbox 360 you can get tired of games easier because there is nothing to look forward getting, that is why trophies make you want to play more.
You can get trophies on the Xbox 360 and if you don't know that you r a noob


10PS3 Is More Modern Than Xbox 360
A ps3 may be older, but still better. I have been having a ps3 for 7-8 years. PRO
Pro? You are not a pro, if you don't know that the Xbox 360 was released in 2005 and the PlayStation 3 was released in 2006.


It was rushed, so it has the red ring of death
Xbox360 is 1 Year older than PS3. But PS3 is better forever!

The Contenders

I am not that big of a fan of littlebigplanet but it is a great game and is clear a Xbox 360 can't handle it

12Netflix Is Free
That's a lie. But I wish it wasn't.


13It Has a Better Design

14You Can Upgrade the Memory Amount As Much As You Want
I bought my 80GB console 5 years ago and filled it up within 2 years, upgrading the hard drive to a 1TB was the best thing I ever did, only 4 game saves out of close enough to 50 didn't make it, bayonetta, AC2 and Saints row 2 & 3, Aside from that the transition was seamless and now with a collection near 80 games its good to know I am nowhere near close to filling up my good ol' PS3
Also the ps3 downloads software updates unlike the xbox.

15The PS3 Isn't a Custom Coaster Maker
Yea ever tried tilting your Xbox while playing a game? Well, it will turn your game into a useless coaster. never saw that happen on PS3

16Metal Gear Solid 4 Is One of the Best Games Ever, and the Xbox 360 Can't Handle It

17Free Online Music and Videos

18Xbox Community is packed with Bullys and Racists
90% of trolling videos happen on Xbox. Plus Xbox has a lot more little complaining kids
The Xbox Live community is packed with Bullys, Racists and guys just being stupid! PSN is a lot calmer and friendlier, You might get the odd bully now and then but whats the bet he has a friend sitting right next to him...
PlayStation is filled with whiny fanboys

19More space on HDD (up to 1TB)

20The XMB
