That's fine, if you don't want to play Sony exclusive games, such as Final Fantasy XIII, Devil May Cry 4, Killzone 3, Tekken, etc. etc..
If I had to choose those between Gears of War, Grand Theft Auto 5, Halo 3, Ninja Gaiden 2, Mass Effect, and Lost Oddysee... I'd go with the latter, and save $200 choosing to do so.
Not to mention games my (most of our) PC(s) can't handle in high fidelity, such as Oblivion and Bioshock.
Then suit yourself. That's where you lie on the gaming spectrum. I personally side with Japanese RPGs/Action Games, so...., yeah, my money's with Sony.
I understand the money bit, but I know I can afford both the Xbox 360 and the PS3, and if I had to choose one, I'd go with the PS3, since money is not an issue for me. You may save $200 with the 360, but you'd never get the games that are exclusive to Sony.
Say what you will, but the system price tag is WAY too expensive. As much as I'd love to play some of those games, it'll be quite a while before I get a PS3.
Or yeah, wait for the price drop.
Add to that the fact that if people won't buy the expensive console, then those games suddenly won't be so 'exclusive.'
Depends. GameCube had a number of exclusives despite the abysmal sales. But I wonder, will DMC4 suddenly show up on the 360 or Wii? Final Fantasy XIII, when announced to be EXCLUSIVE for the PS3, suddenly showing up on 360? Tekken, the lifelong Playstation fighting game franchise, showing up on Wii or 360?
Don't know yet. If you're gonna gamble US$400 on a 360, and PRAY that they show up, well..., you're nuts.
BTW, the 360 is still not selling well in my country. =( Damned pirates.
