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

and right back into it, guess you bought a PS3 for five-hundred-and-ninety-nine-US-dollars.

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


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.

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.

The 360 S is great. I bought mine in 2012-13 and it is still looks and works just as well as when it was brand new. Fortunately for me I didn't get the early models so I avoided the RROD problems that came with those.

I remember when my original Xbox 360 indicated RROD. Because of what I read here ; I thought oh well , no more 360? Turned it off. And the next two days let it sit. Turned it on day two and it worked. It actually worked for an entire year before I traded it in for a 4GB slim model. ( It was still working just wanted the slim ) Took my 160GB HDD from original 360 and installed it in the slim.

We all know the RROD was an overheating issue. Overheating does not mean all is lost unless components get cooked. I wonder how many cases were like mine . Let it rest and cool down and worked fine and never showed red ring after that. And how many cases of people who boxed it up and sent it out when it would actually persevere and continue to play games if they had the patience
or idea to let it cool. [ PS-PC-Switch-XBOX ]
