all my friends have 360s. Like...I know at least 20 people with them and we all have a blast on Gears/COD4. But I only have 2 friends with ps3s. So that's why I first got a 360, and loved it. Later, I thought the PS3 was worth purchasing so I got it also, but found that it only collected dust later while I still played most games on the 360. If a game was multi-platform, it always felt better on the 360 for some reason. So I sold the ps3. I'd like to have it again, but they don't currently have a game that makes me really want one bad enough to think about it. Metal Gear was supposed to be that game, but I've only heard crickets chirping since it was released. There is that red ring of death, but I play the hell out of the 360. Rather have a game I wear out and it blows up than one that sits on a shelf doing nothing but in perfect working condition all the time.
