    Blu-ray, HDMI, Cell processor, customization options (such as the swappable hard drive), the ability to install other OS onto the system as well as the ability to play PS1 and PS2 games.

    I just read an article in PSM comparing the PS3 to the 360. The conclusions were that the PS3 was a better choice if you want all the extra features (Blu-ray, HDMI, bigger hard drive, free online, six-axis controller, additional ports for USB, SD, etc.) and the 360 was recommended for the lower cost, better controllers, and better online service.

    Other differences:

    -The 360 processor had a higher clock speed than the PS3.

    -The graphical comparison was a draw, but there was speculation that developers might be able squeeze a little more out of the PS3 than the 360.

    -PS3 can cache memory on the hard drive while the 360 can't because the core system doesn't have one.

    -Data transfer rate from the 360 disc drive was higher than the PS3 Blu-ray drive for some reason, not that it makes much difference.

    -PS3 has rechargable controllers, while the 360 does not.

    -PS3 has built-in wireless, which is a $100 accessory for the 360.

    -The PS3 runs much quieter and cooler.

    -Rumble feature on the 360 controller, but not the PS3.

    I think that was everything.

    Final Fantasy in all honesty. Forget the rest of the games. FF is like the only true RPG that I want to play aside from Fire Emblem which I thank God is coming out on the Wii.

    Games, and affordable prices are what attracted me to the PS2. I also don't buy systems that can melt/break within a year.

    systems dont melt
    and 360s only break if its a defected system (which youll find out quickly)
    or if your a retard
