the crappy ps3 is still getting hacked with their crappy Sony company while Microsoft is better and don't underestimate its company. i rather buy a 360 were i can update it myself have my own personal account, i can feel save playing; while the ps3 wants to be updating every crap it loads to much, it needs a fan, why does it have a blue ray there just trying to squeeze everything in a system to come to the total of the price. plus why get a console that only holds up 256MG while it hold 8 cores id expect it to have more memory. i rather buy one without a hard drive and update it myself. if one of those cores die, you'll be lucky enough to have a warranty.
