Xbox 360 slim breaks just as much (VIDEO EVIDENCE)
People keep buying this junk and even defending it when it breaks

This tells Microsoft you don't mind because you can always return it for another until that breaks

and think of all the people who don't bother to uploaded a video to youtube and just exchange it for another one...

xbox 360 sucks, and yes i did own one. the only "good" games are halo and call of duty. I didn't like them, once you've played one FPS, you've played them all.

I'm not really a gaming person but I have the PS3 and it's superb. I would never buy a 360 because it's based on old tech. I mean, no Blu-ray? That's crazy.

It's actually the other way around. PS3 is old tech. Parellel processors and all. The 360 has tri-core technology.

Blue ray isn't really anything special. It's just a large capacity DVD serviced by a blue laser. It's cumbersome and in order to function at a reasonable speed, it has to have data repeated on the disc!!!

The only people who believe the PS3 is new tech are the idiots dumb enough to pay for one.

uhhhh buddy its 7 processors in PS3 and 3 in 360

The 360 does a better job of managing memory however, its OS footprint is smaller than PS3

But come on, why would people continue to buy 360 when it has a 50% failure rate, there's so many repair videos on youtube for 360 because they fail so much.

and to boot ps3's warranty sucks compared to xbox's warranty. Xbox expected to fail a bit and gives out a decent warranty. ps3 gambled on a poor warranty in hopes that ps3's would last forever.

Actually the PS3 has an 8 core processor. The first processor is the one that manages the other 7 and manages the memory.

The problem with this is that they aren't 7 fully functioning processors. So they aren't fully programmable. They are limited to specific tasks and when something falls outside of range of tasks these processors are capable it must fall on the 8th.

It's actually very complex. and only provides about a 50% improvement over the xbox 360s 3 fully functioning, fully programmable processors at about 5 times the cost.

The ps3 processor has been a big flop for sony but by the time they figured out it wasn't going to work like they thought they had already invested over a billion dollars in designing it so they kept it.

That being said XBOX with their failure rate is reason enough for me to buy a PS3

if you make sure not to carry it around or move it when there is a disc inside, it won't break

Ridiculous. I guess I'm lucky to have a 2006 model that still works fine, although is insanely loud. Also crazy hot, although being able to install games to it helps a lot.

I can't believe they're still having these problems. I'm pretty sure Foxconn manufactures the 360, and you (should) all know by now what that place is like.

360's break down because they're manufactured by slaves at the Foxconn "factory city".

The failure rate thing is exaggerated.

I've had a 2007 model for years. Never had problem with it.

I think you'll find most owners saying the same thing.

PS3 on the other hand (which uses 90s style parallel processing and has less memory available for VRAM -- thus lower color depth, less AA and slower frame rates) even has problems going online.

The PS3 is junk compared to the 360, believe it or not.

I have both systems and the 360/elite after 6 months got the red ring of death, so I sent it in. My PS3 just humms along no issues at all. When my 360 went down I decided to by all future games when there is a choice for my PS3. I have only bought one game in the last year for my 360 and that was Halo. I will not invest anymore money on MS's platform, they blew it.
