Because every time I see one I turn 360 degrees and walk away.

If you turned 180, you'd walk away, turn a complete 360 circle and you're still walking toward the best Generation 7 system.

Why 360? It's still around.

Forza, Halo, multiplats, B/C with favorite OG Xbox games like Phantom Crash, Roadkill, etc.

NO,

PS3 dominates the Garbagebox 360. It's just a fact and the fact that the PS3 has more and better exclusives, with the fact that the PS3 outsold it also proves my point.

That was only after MS threw the 360 in the trash by going all in on the Kinect.

Sorry, I have both, and the 360 outpoints the PS3 in every way. Forza is vastly superior to Gran Turismo. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate my PS3 as an external hard drive for my Vita, and for GT. But the 360 is superior for multiplats and has B/C for favorite OG games. My original hardware B/C PS3 died of YLOD, my PS3 slim is fine, but B/C is reliable on Xbox.

If others' experience is like mine, the PS3 had to outsell the 360, because everyone had to buy at least two PS3s to have one that works.

I dont know about that. I had 4 360s die of red rings. I had to buy 4 360s over the generation because of RROD. Right now I have a working elite that I sent for free repair to MS and a 360 S that are working still but have not been turned on in years.

Fair point. I'm still on my only 360 (2011-present), while a friend of mine went through three PS3s (2008-2018) before jumping to PS4.

Edit: Too bad the PS3 slim didn't keep PS2 disc games support.

Are we just going to pretend Red Ring of Death was not an issue with Xbox 360?

All "launch" 7th-gen consoles were notable for their unusually high hardware failure rates (most common):

360's RROD (over-heating);
PS3's YLOD (disc-read); and
Wii's BLOD (power-supply).

These issues, and others, were resolved in time for second edition (aka, "slim"; all brands) console releases. This means "normal", not "none", types and rates of system failure.
