Thinking of trading XBox 360 for PS3

Pretty fed up with the whole XBox Live "Gold" idea. Can't watch Netflix without Gold. Can't watch ESPN without Gold. Can't finish achievements on most games without Gold (because the achievements relate to online play somehow).

And now I bought an old coop game (Sacred 2) to play with my daughter and it's all ****ed up because Microsoft wants her to pay for a Gold account TOO.

With the next gen consoles probably 18 months out, is it worth it to make the switch? How does PSN (the free version, not PSN+) compare to XBox Live? If I like to play Live Arcade games, will I regret changing?

Try to keep the fanboi stuff to a minimum, I would like some sincere responses.

I bought a charger too eventually. That wasn't my point.

I had my launch 360 until the slim came out. Only had it repaired once (video card failed).

Eh, I don't mind it.

I only pay additional $$$ for XBL (which isn't terribly bad) and new games if I want them.

That's about it.

As I mentioned before, the PS3 didn't exist when I bought my 360.

It was a few year ahead of its time and priced way high.....took a few years to finally catch on, but the PS3 is an excellent piece of hardware.

Actually both the XBOX and PS3 are going to be around for a long time, even when the next gen stuff comes around. Amazing to think they have both lasted 6 or 7 years now with no replacement. How much better can gaming get?

This will be my last year to pay for Gold membership.

Surprised no one mentioned that the PS3 has a remote controller for playing Blu Rays. IIRC, ****er may be universal and programmable to your TV and Cable box.

Not at all. We just went back and forth on it in the fanboi days. I was shocked as **** to read that post. Glad to have you on the right side though.

The joystick is the remote.

It's hard for non-gamers to adapt to but if you're use to a controller it's no big deal...

Now that I know the controller is rechargeable, I'm fine with using it.

If you read back, my beef was that the factory XBox 360 controller uses batteries so using it as a remote can either be very inconvenient or very expensive, depending on whether or not you leave it on all the time.
