That's very profound, Zax. I'd never thought of it in that way. +1 for you.
I have a PS3. And only a PS3 'cos I can't justify the outlay of two consoles when, realistically, the range of games I want to play are available on both consoles anyway. I'm also happy that a couple of the games that I really enjoyed are PS3 exclusives (LBP, Warhawk, for instance), but I've never been so excited about a game that I've wanted to get a console just to play it because it's exclusive.
(Actually, I will admit that the TIMING
of me buying a PS3 was suspiciously close to the release of GTA4, but there was never a question of which
console I'd buy.)
I started out my console life pre-Xbox with a Playstation (before it was called a PSone). Then I got a PS2 'cos I still wanted to play PS games, then I got a PS3 original 60Gb 'cos I still wanted to play PS2 games. And Blurays. And there's the fact that my TV and Hifi are all Sony, so it seemed natural. Generally, they make good shit.
As many people have said, if I want to play an FPS (which, I must admit, I don't very often) I'll play it on a PC. (And I don't presently have any games on my PC, so that goes to prove my previous comment...)
I have another PC dedicated to MP3 jukebox and MAME for Arcade games. Anything else, I'm more than happy to play on a console, and TBH, it wouldn't bother which I had. I will, however, make the comment about reliability - more people I know have had a RROD than have had a PS3 pack up.
