Sure, you can say the PS3 is more expensive, but then you guys don't realize that their is always a $50 coupon deal or the excellent $100 coupon (Best Buy does this every other month) when purchasing a PS3. Pretty much buy a $300 bundle with a few games included (the Move 320GB bunble is $349.99 I believe) and then you've got a free game or two.
360 never has those kinds of deals unless you want to buy a shitty Kinect 4GB model.
Even when the PS3 was closer to $500, that was practically the cost of a Blu Ray player back then. Plus, Xbox Live is fantastic and worth the price, PS3 has no internet costs so it's even cheaper than one might think.
And the PS3 exclusives give the 360 exclusives a run for its money? Have you seen the list of 360 exclusives? It's pretty bad. There are arguably less than 10 good exclusives worth bragging about.
Edit: Speaking of deals, when I bought my MGS4 PS3 bundle, it was during Father's Day week and I got a $100 coupon that was immediately available to use towards the purchase of the PS3 bundle. Pretty much double dipping, but I spent it on games.
