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.

IMO xbox live is clearly the better experience with ps3 having no in game party chat(unless theyve updated it since ive owned one) and the majority of the gaming community owning xboxes.

But if you dont plan on gaming online alot ps3 would be the better option for you.

The major irk i have with ps3s is the insane ammount of time it takes to update a game.

I rented gran turismo and it had to update so at 745 i left it to update while i went out. I shit you not, i got home at 1030 and it was 88% done.

XBOX controllers are garbage. I can't tell you how many times that damn thing would turn off for no reason while I was playing a game. It's never happened once with my PS3 controller.

You can. I use a Harmony.

I don't know if they still make them, but I used to buy M$ brand USB rechargeable controllers for like $40 (they came with the USB cable and everything).

I just hate the PS3 controllers. They're made for tiny, Japanese hands. Other than that they're a better machine overall.

Yep, I've gotten 4 years out of my ONE PS3. In the last 5 years I am on my THIRD xbox. ONe was a repair and the other a trade in for the new model when it came out.

I have never had that happen.. Ever.. Of course I have broken 2 or 3 controllers from throwing them and twisting them apart..

Launch console with zero problems still to date..I don't even want to know how much use it has gotten... I sometimes forget to turn it off.. Runs like a charm and quiet..

I am lucky, still cant seem to win the lottery though..

Online trophies an achievements are the reason why I don't even **** with trying to get them all

I had nothing but problems with my 360. It worked well for a year and went to shit after that. I had to send it in to get repaired every 6 months like clockwork after that first year. After the third or fourth time I had it repaired I sold it and bought a PS3. I was actually praying to get the RROD just so I would get the three year warranty, never got it though.

Yeah, I have zero use for in-game chat, out-of-game chat, or anything remotely like it. Nothing like trying to play while listening to 12-year olds call people pillowbitergots when they die...
