I've owned both real next gen consoles since each system launched. I played my 360 primarily until CoD 4 came out. I bought CoD 4 for the PS3 b/c my 4th 360 died. Ever since then, it's been about 95 - 5 play time w/ the PS3. When Gears 2 came out and it's MP issues sucked hard, I pretty much abandoned my Elite all together. I haven't looked back since. I used to buy multi plats on the 360. Now it's just 360 exclusives, a complete role reversal.The 360 does suck ass. Giant power block. Sounds like a plane.
That is exactly what happened to me. Only I'm on my 4th 360. If this one dies its over.

No. Try again.

The 360 is like an abusive lover. It's at times unresponsive, inflicts psychological and physical abuse and takes off for weeks at a time, but because it's so fucking sexy you give it all your attention once it comes back, all the while knowing it will do it to you again and again and again. I love my 360... that fucking bitch!
That was poignant, beautifully worded poetry my friend.+rep circa 2003

Not really. I paid $400 for my first. MS fixed it the 1st time it broke for free. It died an additional 2 times after that. The cost to "fix" it was $100 the first time (after warranty expired). They did it for free again after the 2nd time (2 months later). As soon as I got it back, I traded that P.O.S. in @ gamestop ($80 TI IIRC) and bought another. It died. Sent it to be repaired for free, got it back, traded it in on the Elite. That cost me +$230. Now, yeah, it could be rightly said that I am stupid for continuing to buy it after it died. Keep in mind, I've bought a ton of additional content that I didn't want to lose. There are still games I want to play on my 360. $400 (original) + $100 (repair) + $230(cost of Elite after trade in) = $730 (not counting XBL that I pretty much don't use anymore)The only costs I've encurred with my PS3 was the $49.99 (after MIR) that I spent upgrading from a 60G HDD to a 320G. Other than that, my Launch PS3 has been worth every red cent I've spent on it. $600 + $49.99 = $650.00

See see, this sort of thing is why I still only own a Wii and a PS2 when my normal inclination is to be a multiconsole owner. Between PS3's price point and removal of PS2 backwards compatibility and Xbox 360s dying if you so much as breathe on it, it has pretty much forced me to just stick with Nintendo this gen and finally discover PC Gaming. Not saying Nintendo doesn't have their own problems (Third parties need to come over and Friend Codes need to go), but Nintendo has given me the games I expected to play from them without too much trouble.

It helps if you talk to your 360 every once and a while.
