All i can say is that PS3 is a Great Console. I brought an Xbox 360 and on the first day within 6 hours of recieving it, it stopped working. I returned it back and brought a PS3 instead. straight away i noticed that the PS3 was better as the hard drive was larger and it was more then just a console, its an entertainment system. With the help of its Blu-Ray drive which is the future format for optical storage media it can hold 50GB on one disk which means Exclusivity of MGS4 on PS3. You can update the firmware as it is released from sony which will increase the posibilities it can be used for. i think its a good peice of hardware for the money and you should buy it instead of a Xbox 360.
