X Box 360 on the basis of that the controller is simply far superior. The only type of games I would rather use a PS3 controller for, are fighting games. Everything else I would rather play on the 360. That is the primary deciding factor. Everything else is less relevant.

People talk about their X Box dying from the RLOD, but PS3 has their own variation with the YLOD (yellow light of death) and I had a PS3 die on me. I know there is a fix on the internet, but it was unsuccessful. So both systems have reliability faults. To me, it comes down to controller design and Microsoft wins.

Sony fixed the YLOD with the slim PS3 model and it was way less usual than the Red Ring of Death. Microsoft did fix the RROD with the new slim models, but this models came with another problem, the Red Dot of Death. Regarding the controller, I personally found PS3's controller way more easier to use and get used to.

Easier to use =/= better. The Xbox controller is far superior once you get used to it, and it's really not that hard to either. I own both consoles atm, and I find myself playing the Xbox more often. Better controller, and more importantly better games.

To me neither are the successor. Each one has its positives and negatives that pretty much negate each other. Both are fun consoles IMO.

Both controllers are nice but I do prefer the PS3 controller for fighting games and the Xbox controller for shooters.

I got an XBox this year and basically barely using my PS3 right now but I think a lot of that is I have a "fat" PS3 and its twice as noisy and the online connection is much better on 360. I'd say my catalog of games on Playstation is better though.

I own both consoles.
While I still lived at home I didn't have a way to get online with my 360, while I did with my ps3. So I started using my ps3 more. Now that I've moved out, I still play my ps3. I only really played my 360 when a friend came over to hang out or whatever and they brought a 360 game over. Also, I'm not about to pay for online when I don't have to a monthly fee on the ps3
To be honest though, I think both consoles are a mixed bag. I think sometimes, when it comes to mulitplat games the ps3 has performance issues. It's not with every game of course, but Skyrim was one of the big issues from the last year. Though, I think it may have been more of Bethesda's fault than the ps3's.
But yeah, that's something I noticed. The 360 seems to have less.
On the other hand my 360 has died twice. Currently it's dead. It was also noisier than the ps3. Also, the disc tray can scratch the discs.

Also, I like the ps3 controller better. While I do like the 360 controller, it just doesn't feel as good as the ps3 one does. But that's probably nostalgia from the psx days.

Overall I enjoy PS3 just a bit more but I don't really prefer one over the other.

Default Re: People who own both a 360 & a PS3,Which do you prefer?

I prefer PS3 a little more, but overall I enjoy them both equally, expect that I have one problem with each system:

My only problem with the 360 is that Xbox Live's Gold membership isn't free. I've had a Silver membership for the past few years because I got tired of shelling out money for Gold membership cards AND Microsoft Points cards (I never had enough money for 1-year cards because I was always buying Microsoft Points cards at the same time as Gold membership cards, so I always settled on 3-month cards).

Also, my only problem with the PS3 is the way the controller's L2 and R2 buttons stick out on the back of the controller. They didn't stick out on the back of the PS2's controller, so why do that with the PS3's controller? This hasn't happened to me yet, but it almost gives me the feeling that my fingers are going to slip off of them some day when I'm right in the middle of a game.

But like I said before, I equally enjoy both of them overall. I've had a 360 Elite since 2008, a slim PS3 since 2009, and an original fat PS3 since 2011 and they're all still going strong. My 360 DID get the Red Ring of Death once, but I'm not counting it as official because it only happened due to me not shutting off my power surge completely. Once I turned the power surge back on and turned the 360 back on, there was nothing wrong with it.
