    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.

    I think you tend to get used to controllers and the way things go with a certain console. I had a PS1, 2 and 3 and picked up an x-box control and it just felt weird.

    what do you mean?

    I play the hell out of my ps3 and never had an issue.

    Red Ring of Death was bad manufacturing, not overuse.

    Yeah, could have been because I was more accustomed to it, no doubt. About metal gear - it was so hyped, then released and nothing was said about it, other than people being upset that it was more of a movie than a game and a beta version for an upcoming release.
    And I know the RROD was manufacturing. I'm saying regardless - I never had to worry about my ps3 messing up because it didnt get enough use.

    MGS4 has sold pretty well, 4 million worldwide I think.

    It selling was never in question. We knew it'd sell. Just like Halo 3. But living up to the hype is a different story with both.

    I thought it did, but each to their own.

    Gears has apparently sold 2 million + already.

    Haven't got it yet. : ( I've got to wait til christmas. Wife would kill me if I bought a game when I'm supposed to be saving for the kid's xmas.
    So I'll be without for a good minute. Plus, I have to renew my xbl acct that just expired. Not sure if they'll give me the name back or not once I pay. I lost my last one.

    Will do. Yeah, I usually rack up at xmas time. Mom, wife, and others just get me games. I've gotta get CODWorld at War, Gears, Fallout, and Prince of Persia.
