Re: PS3 Firmware 2.60 to launch tomorrow
You are correct in saying that the xbox 360 is cheaper than the ps3,but you are forgetting 1 thing. its cheaper cause it doesnt have or do everything the ps3 does. Once you add up all those extras you have to buy for the 360 to make it comarable to the ps3 now you have spent just as much if not more also you still have to pay for online, and on top of all that, you still wont be able to watch blu-ray movies on it. So add another 150$ plus to go buy a seperate blu-ray player. If you open up a 360 also to make the console better,like it should of been from the factory you void your warranty. With sony you can open it up change your hdd,even install a different operating system and your warranty is unaffected.
I dunno. Just my two cents.
I personally have never owned a 360 due to the fact that all my friends who have 1 are on their 3rd to 5th one. All my friends that have a ps3 are still on their first ones, and like me some still have their original ps1 and ps2 that still work perfectly fine. So for me and my friends at least, Sony has been reliable in the console department.
Also I would venture to guess that most of the people who have problems after a firmware update, got the problem from not letting their system update fully before turning off their system or got impatient and were in such a rush to get back to gaming that they canceled something out to early.
Obviously some are legit though as with anything that has parts can break. And with anything the longer you use it the more likely it is to start breaking as is the case with people who never shut off their system lol. Although on the sony forums their are people on their who have launch systems that say they have not turned off their ps3 since they have owned it and theirs is still running fine.
Wow didnt realize how long this got sorry all lol.
