Craigslist is my proof. On the Seattle page, dozens of people are begging for someone to trade them a PS3 for their shitty Xbox 360. The good news is, when your 5th 360 finally craps out, you can always amend your horrible decision.

But PS3 still sucks..........

I remember my 360. It was great. I never had a problem in the world with it for over a year. Then, the day Halo 3 came out there were suckers everywhere on craigslist offering straight up trades for PS3's. I came up golden on my 360 on craigslist, then parlayed that shit into an awesome PS3 package.

I've never regretted it a day in my life. Have you?

Trading in an entire system just to play a game? Nuts.

I like my PS3 also Mike :) Do you have Road to The Show ? I love that game. Also play NBA 2k8, GTA4 and Madden 08. Thinking of buying NCAA 09 ATM, also waiting for the MMA game and Face Breaker to come out. Any recomendations??? I also swap games with my son so I play CD4 and stuff like that occasionaly. I had to return my PS3 after a corrupt hard drive failure, but it was under warranty. I know coulda reformated the drive but wtf? I just don't turn it off now.

Ahhh, gotcha. When you said "never turn it off" I took that to mean you keep it constantly on at full power. You do let it go to low power mode though which is normal.

Yeah lol, I was hoping that was ok since I hear others do it. I have a feeling one of my kids shut off the power when something was writing to the HD so I made a new rule lol

Yeah, as long as those damn firmware and game updates can take, I always worry about that random power outage. Wish PS3 didn't work like that.

Heck Ya there is definately a potential for disaster :( I might have to invest in a component that allows me to reformat the hd from my computer.
