    Saying something is a failure IS an opinion. It's like I have to put "IMO" after anything for you to not argue. Saying that I thought a game was a failure, relative to what I thought developers, Sony, and reviewers were predicting, is my opinion.

    The only reason I responded was because I thought your comment to Fightin about not liking good games was snarky.

    Then perhaps you should be clearer.

    And I'm not arguing, I am telling you the facts.

    Fightin is probably old enough to not need a hand holder. He also took the first shot.

    LBP is very different and won't appeal to everyone. There seems to be few two-player games you can team up to play which made it more fun for me. If you're looking for a game to play with your kids, this is one of the few I've found.

    Yep...I agree. Now if they would just add co-op MP to UC2 I would be set for a while....

    I generally don't play multiplayer but I thought there was co-op MP in UC2?

    You should get one. It's well worth it IMO. Once November comes around, I will have been an Xbox 360 owner for 5 years. Everyone whines about the red lights and how they break often. I have had 2 break in 5 years. My first console lasted exactly 3 years. The other one was defective and broke on me within the first two or three weeks of my purchase.

    360 > PS3 in every single way. The ONLY aspect of PS3 that is superior to the 360 is blu-ray. That's it. And it's no longer the cheapest blu-ray player. Most BR players run from around $100-$250.

    Xbox Live is wonderful... it's $60 a year, but it gives you, by far, the best online gameplay imaginable.

    You can get an Xbox 360 Elite Bundle that comes with Halo 3:ODST (basically two games in one minus the Halo 3 campaign, but you can play Halo 3 with all maps including DLC stuff on it) and Forza Motorsport 3 (I know absolutely nothing about it) for $299.99.

    You're a fanboy. I'm a fanboy. But for real... try to argue against the 360. Please. Just try. I know you and I have had a similar conversaition before, but seriously... the 360 is better than the PS3 and everyone knows that.

    What are you gonna say?... PS3 has blu-ray and 360 has red rings? Still doesn't make it better.

    Let's see:

    -You already admitted the major hardware issue. 2 times in 5 years? Really? That's horrible. Mine hasn't broken once. (granted my 360 hasn't either)
    -RROD is fact.
    -I get to shoot things and play online. You pay $60 to do that exact same thing
    -I have Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2. You have nothing that reaches any of those graphics.
    -You have Gears...and Halo and more Halo. I have Infamous (open world), Uncharted (adventure), Metal Gear Solid 4 (action), Killzone 2 (Shooter).
    -I am also getting Gran Turismo 5, Agent, The Last Guardian, as well as sequels for Killzone, Uncharted, Infamous, LBP. You have...another Halo...another Gears and probably another Halo.
    -You have to pay for: Wireless, Online, Hard drives. I get it for free.
    -Sony has something like 18 first part studios, ensuring maximum performance. Microsoft has 3 and already lost Bungie.

    Really this is pointless.

    It is preference. Neither are factually better then the other and both have pros and cons.

    Yeah I would have to say 2 systems in 5 years is horrible. I bought a PS3 when they first came out and haven't had a problem since. And that's the way it should be when spending this kind of money.
