Why did you get Xbox 360 instead of PS3?

I would like to read actual facts about this, not just "lolol xbox ftw" or "lolol ps3 sucks"
You see Araragi-San, in a way, the supernatural is what's behind the curtain. Normally, you only need to see what's happening in stage. Thats how reality works.

The 360 was my first system because it was cheaper, because Oblivion was a 360 console exclusive (at the time), and because Halo 3 was coming out.

Because early in the lifecycle, there were a lot more 360 exclusive-ish games I was interested in. Stuff like Mass effect, tales of vesperia, eternal sonata, lost odyssey, blue dragon, ace combat 6 all sold me easily. Since about 2009, theres really nothing I care about in terms of 360 exclusives, sadly. It was also much cheaper than a ps3 early on. I own all 3 now, but I waited till ps3 hit $200.

I like Halo and the Gear's series,FPS in general and I like the live service they have and there arcade game's wipe the floor with any other console,I also have a boat load of achievements so I buy all of my 3rd party game's for Xbox.

I own a PS3 just for the Uncharted series and that's it.

But the main reason is that all of my friends that are on my list 50+ and work friends all play Xbox exclusively so if I want to play with friends I have to play Xbox360.

Didn't. Owned all 3. Ended up dumping the Wii like garbage. Ended up using 360 as my main since it's better than the PS3 in every way.
2013: Next Gen finally arrives. Don't let us down like Nintendo did.

Because it came out first.

Then I bought a PS3.

Mass Effect and Halo 3 were the biggest reasons when I bought it five years ago. There were also about a dozen other games that ended up being "timed exclusives", including Mass Effect and Bioshock.

It all boiled down to the games, and back then, 360 had way more than they do now, unfortunately.
It does not matter where we go. It is not the destination that is the journey.
