Reasons Why the PlayStation 3 Is Better Than the Xbox 360

The Top Ten
1 Free Online Gaming

Pfft* It's why I bought Ps3 in the first place. A year could end up in almost 1.5 thousand dollars just to play games online!

Anyone Agree?

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.

Definitely this. The only reason I like the Xbox360 beter is because it has Halo. But that's the only reason.

2 Exclusive Games

To the person that said mgs was a ps exclusive, it's also on Xbox. For PS3, Uncharted, Little big planet, and Ratchet and Clank. Xbox has Gears of War, One of the greatest franchises ever, and Halo, also one of the greatest games ever.

Xbox has halo, gears of war, fable, and? We have uncharted, killzone, god of war, littlebigplanet, resistance, infamous, metal gear solid, sly cooper, ratchet and clank, modnation racers.

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.

3 Chargeable 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.

Xbox 360 sucks because every time your controller runs out you need a new battery, but with PS3 you can charge it while playing.

It nice that the controllers are chargeable then I don't need batteries

4 It's a Blu-Ray Player
5 No 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.

I lost my Xbox to red rings of death and I only had it for 8 months, I have had my ps3 for 3 years and it is running perfectly fine

The PlayStation 4 has a similar issue to this called the blinking Blue Light of Death

6 Lower System Fail Rate

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.

7 Better 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.

I also have a PS3 and with the controller I am amazed by the work unlike the leading Xbox 360 controller that is suckyish and pretty heavy so I propose for PS3.

8 You 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.

Xbox has had achievements from day one trophies came out after two years and a half of its reasle date. All play station did was copy xbox's idea.

9 PS3 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

Xbox360 is 1 Year older than PS3. But PS3 is better forever!

10 Xbox 360 Has More Viruses
The Contenders
11 Netflix Is Free

This is a big plus. Xbox requires monthly xbove live subscription just to access

12 It Has a Better Design

In my opinion, Xbox 360's design is ugly! Even fat PS2's design is better than that... (I went too far? )

I liked the design. It reminded me of a grill

Definitely a better design, it is smaller and slick and works better

13 The XMB
14 LittleBigPlanet
15 Metal Gear Solid 4 Is One of the Best Games Ever, and the Xbox 360 Can't Handle It
16 It does not heat up like the Xbox
17 Free Online Music and Videos
18 Xbox Community is packed with Bullys and Racists

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...

90% of trolling videos happen on Xbox. Plus Xbox has a lot more little complaining kids

19 The 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

20 More space on HDD (up to 1TB)
21 You 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

22 Easier to Use
23 It's Japanese
24 Easier to Mod

With the Xbox 360, you would have to soldier in a mod chip to JTAG/RGH your console and a bunch of other stuff too, as there is no softmod for Xbox 360. The process is way easier said than done and your console can get banned for doing so. The Playstation 3 on the other hand, supports a custom firmware that you can install on earlier model PS3s and it requires no soldiering. Even if your PS3 doesn't support CFW, it can still be softmodded via HEN, which you will have to enable every time you go to turn on the console.
