you don't really want to pay an xbox monthly subscription to allow you to play online or merely use your netflix monthly subscription.

I don't know much about PS3's, since I've never really been around them. We have an Xbox 360 because hubby is a geek.
I use it for Netflix.

I don't mind paying for xbox live...just like I don't mind paying for my wow subscription. I don't see it any differently then paying the cable company for shows I could watch for 'free' on the internet that I also pay for. You choose your battles lol

not sure what you're talking about? yeah xbox360 can be a good deal if you have it modded to play pirated games.

It's different. downloading a bunch of pirated shows is kind of impractical and unethical. i prefer to just netflix and hulu them.

Didn't the PlayStation network just get hacked about a month or two ago?

PS3 is theoretically a more powerful system but they made it so difficult to program for that most 360 games still end up with a slight edge. This is also one of the reasons the same games and DLC often come out later for the PS3 (it's not always because Microsoft secures a deal, though sometimes it is
).

At any rate, I prefer XBox out of the two. I actually still play the Wii more often though just because I don't usually have time for games that weren't designed with casual gamers in mind.

I've got a PS3 as I wanted a Blu Ray player and a gaming system and it offered good value if used for both purposes. Like nomad888 I'm only a casual gamer so play Wii too. I was using the PS3 as a general media player but use a mini low power PC running Linux for that now.

This. Already paying for Netflix so it's good not to have another charge on top of that in order to watch Netflix movies/TV shows on an actual television. It's definitely not the same as watching for free. Only PSN itself is free. Having a blu-ray player can be nice too. My boyfriend and I prefer PS3 except when playing Bayonetta (he actually prefers Bayonetta on 360 while I'm indifferent). Some of our favorite games to play on PS3 are Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and King of Fighters XIII currently.

This is pretty much our answer too, not having to pay for Xbox Live and getting a blu-ray player out of it sealed the deal for us. We pretty much only use our Xbox when we want to play a Kinect game at the moment.
