The lights are on
As a current Xbox 360 owner, I have recently been contemplating picking up a PS3. I am really just looking to round out this generation (already have a wii). The only problem, is I'm not sure what a PS3 has to offer. I already have a bluray player, so that perk is gone. And any game that isn't exclusive to the PS3 I can just pick up for my 360.
So my question to you PS3 owners is what am I missing out on? What are your favorite exclusives and why? The only two that I know of that interest me are LittleBigPlanet and Modnation Racers (which I know isn't out yet, but has an interesting premise.
I think you should stick to the 360, because most of us are elitist and would rather have the common folk stay in their holes.

Don't have a PS3, but these are some good games i've heard that are out or coming.
Uncharted 2 (just got a 10 on this site)
Ratchet & Clank
God of war
Metal Gear Solid 4
Kingdom hearts (bleh)
TC, welcome to PS3'ness. For starters, there is a lot of bad crap that is going on about the PS3, allow me to start off with a few things you will hear off of a 360 board/fanboy:
1) no good games, they have sucky exclusives
2) PSN suxorz
3) 360 graphics = PS3 graphics
4) XBox can do anything PS3 can
Now let me say what the TRUTH is. Now be warned, I don't have the links, but I have seen the things I am about to write from official sources:
1) As you can see, the PS3 has a great lineup of exlusive games, 2 off the top of my head have earned 10's (Uncharted 2, MGS4), and like you said, most games come out on both consoles.
2) I have friends with 360's, and I am unimpressed with the overall performance of XBL, true, it does have more features, like cross game chat, but it has the same to worse lag (halo anyone?) and in COD, it still has problems with hosting and disconnections.
3) PS3 =/= 360, PS3 has HDMI (a draw if you are into HD gaming), and Naughty Dog has said themselves that they would of been unable to do what they did for Uncharted 2 on the 360. I forget where I read it, but I saw it.
4) See previous 3 answers.
and may I add a few other things I feel noteworty: less console failure rate, free PSN, built in wifi, they are both now $300, no (unless you do Home, but who does that?) avatars, and I love my PS3, best console I ever bought. It is too bad that people hate on it for no apparent reason.
The only reason why I chose the PS3 over the 360 was because of it's exclusives. So, there you have it. That's my opinion.
i dun had all three well ps3 is the way to go right now since u already have a 360.....i sold my ps3 when it didnt have much on it at that time plus i couldnt pass up a offer on the 360 at that time as well......now i wanna get the ps3 slim still thinkn on that tho my brother has the ps3 cuz i sold it to him so i still access to it if want to play it but yea go get that three dawgg
I enjoy Killzone 2 (for its campaign and multiplayer) Little Big Planet, Resistance, & Infamous. Uncharted 2 had a sweet demo and alot of people are really excited about this game for both the campaign and new multiplayer. Also Home is a really cool bonus.
The online is beast, especially with Call of Duty and Resistance games.
Fallout 3 is the best RPG and if you want an MMO get MAG when it comes out.
Plus PS3 has free online Xbox live is $50 for like 3 months.
Good luck in trying to convince your idiot friends the PS3 is 20x better.
Stick that in your juice box and SUCK IT!!!!!!!!
FREE ONLINE!!!! What is wrong with you Xbox owners paying $50 a month for online play. GRRR! As far as games go Resistance is the best PS3 exclusive title MotorStorm too.
yah heavy rain is another great exclusive for ps3 soon to come
You cant believe everything you hear on the Internet, that's how World War 1 started.
I just got my PS3 and I love it. As for $50/month for X-Box Live, that's B.S. You can get an X-Box Live account for a year for $50.

Im an Xbox360 owner too and i kindof want a PS3 also. But im not sure if i should buy one or not
Im curious because ill have the money soon to get it but im not sure if i should get it or something else like a Ipod touch or PSP GO. If i do decide to get a PS3 which one should i get? The 80GB thats on sale at Bestbuy for $280 or the new Slim version for $300. Im not sure. And What games should i get?
Personally, I love my PS3. If I bought one again, I'd get the slim. The additional functionality as a Bluray player is a great fringe benefit, IMO.
As to the Ipod Touch/PSPGo, the real question is do you want a home console or a portable device?
Well i like how the PSPGO you can put music and download games onto it, but the ipod touch is better known and you can get apps and stuff for that. So im not sure which one to get, the PSPGO is alittle more expensive though, the Ipod touch is only $199 now and the GO is $250
