Why do YOU prefer Xbox over Playstation?

Also when you see all those ads on Xbox live is a shame, cause you pay for the service. Yet on Playstation you don't even get ads and its free. I'll admit I got duped when I brought an xbox 360, but halo reach looked really awesome so I got one just because of that game.

Don't lie. I too have a PS3, adds are the first thing you see when you turn it on.

You can install games to reduce loading times, which also makes the console run silent.

You can mute talkers, not just individually but the option to mute every single person who isn't on your friend list.

Downloading a game takes less time, and then you don't have to install it, it's automatically ready to play.

Sony went the "no games" route and half-assed most of their products this gen and 2012 has been the definition of that on the Playstation side.

Half-finished games and PSN titles forced into retail, Vita abandoned. Xbox 360 has given me a blockbuster with incredibly strong communities every year on the year since 2006. Plus the best console version of most games.

The controller, achievements, multiplats look and run better, and the interface.

i prefer every system over the PS3. Even the Atari Jaguar. Even the Virtual Boy. Even the Game Gear. All those had more of an excitement factor than the PS3.

Like most people, the controller is a big preference for me. Also, growing up with Xbox and PS2, I prefered the majority of the Multiplayer games the Xbox had (Halo 2, Mechassault, the PSO remake) to the PS2's large single-player based games, so I just got a 360 thinking things would play out the same way.

Oh yeah, and then there was that whole "Sorry we didn't do our best to protect your personal information and ended up shutting down our online services for 1-1/2 months. But you can have a free medicore game as our gift to you for free!" thing Sony did. After something like that it's hard to trust a company. Granted, 360's RROD probably isn't any better, but I have yet to experience one.

So that's why I prefer Xbox over Playstation.

The main reason is because of party chat, so I can talk to my friends, most of whom don't own a computer that can run games made after 2000. Two of my friends can barely run Diablo 2, so there isn't much option for PC gaming with them.

If we could all game on the PC, I don't see why we wouldn't, besides Xbox exclusives.

I admit I only got the 360 because PS3 was out of stock when Circuit City was liquidating them.
