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 have both and have to say, PS3 is far more user friendly. I'll be trading in my Xbox soon for an iPad.

I'd say it's worth making the switch. My 360 has been collecting dust for a couple months now. I really only play it when some of my old buds are wanting to jump on COD and 360 is all they have -- or when a killer XBLA game hits the stores (not too often, last one I bought was Fez). This will be my last year to pay for Gold membership.

I actually traded my ps3 for a 360 a couple of years ago and have regretted it. PS3 is much better, plus you get a firmware upgradable blu ray player, although I don't think they have espn through psn. I say go for it

Well Xbox Live is better than PSN. No getting around it, it's much more user friendly and offers more, but you have to pay for it.

It is a very cool service. I just don't use enough of it to justify paying the price.

Plus, the Netflix thing really pisses me off.

As does having to pay to play online to get the most out of a game I already ****ing paid $60 for...

Actually, the industry discussion is that Sony needs to change their model to compete with Microsoft.

MS is making money hand over fist. Sony is getting fisted financially.

IM surprised they would do this but they must see a demand there? If they do this, then they have lost me as an online customer.

I wonder what Nintenos plan is with the Wii u store?

Live is hands down a superior product. But that is for people who use it a lot. Also why I only buy live when I get it for around 30bucks. That way it onlys averages out to 3bucks a month.

I do agree on the netflix, you should be able to use it on silver. Honestly someone should do a change.org petition.

I play almost exclusively offline. However, I am a "completionist" when it comes to the achievements.

NOTHING pisses me off more than to find out that I can get 45 of 50 achievements just fine but to get the last 5, I have to have a ****ing Gold account so that I can play a half dozen "ranked" matches.

I'm more surprised that Sony hasn't changed its business model to charge for the online content.

I have both and I usually buy games for the Xbox because I think their controllers are more comfortable.

But I rarely play/buy console games and when I do it's never online. If I'm buying a game for online, and not single player, it's on PC. Hell, if I had an up to date computer I wouldn't even have a console system period. Gaming is much better on a computer, imo, because its more precise. It's just cheaper to use a console.

I switched back around Halo 3 and have been happy ever since. Yeah I missed out on Fable 3....but I figure that I can always go back and pick up a used, cheap Xbox 360 to play it if I want too.

360 has very few exclusives worth playing. Mine collects dust.
