The lights are on
360 = Corvette
PS3 = Ferrari
Also, you are wise to invest in free online gaming.
The online community is robust and not the problem I thought it would be when I decided to go with the PS3 over the 360 as my next-gen choice.
I just bought Demon's Souls, which is pretty awesome, other than that, Sony has always been the "RPG machine" maker, so I don't think there's a problem there, either.
