Why did you buy a Playstation 3?

4 Reasons:

1. Successor to the PS2
2. More suited for my "type" of games, I'm into Versus Fighting and RPGs, but I don't like first person shooters
3. I don't like the Xbox controllers, too clunky.
4. Exclusives

Had a PS1, PS2
Love the PS Pad Design (Nothing against 360's minus the awful dpad, miles better than the original XBOX controllers)
Yakuza Series
Blu-Ray (even though i only own 1 at the moment)

I also like my fighting games alot, and while it isn't as perfect as an arcade stick the DS3 is much better suited to those games than the 360 pad
--- - YES!!!!!, YES!!!!!!, YES!!!!!, YES!!!!!!!

Exclusives. But since I've had it I've also started buying all of my movies on Blu Ray.

I play multiplats on the 360 and use it for online, but I like having the PS3 for the exclusives. Sometimes it doesn't get played for a while, but it's usually worth it when an exclusive comes out.

Pretty much this. Also for the PSN classics.

To play games. My gf own a 360 so I didn't need to buy one myself.

Other. Bought it solely for MGS4 a few months before its release. Obviously it wasn't one and done but all it takes is for that one phenomenal game to come out for me to get a new console.

Same thing for my 360. Got one at launch because Oblivion was coming out a few months later.

I had a PS1 and PS2
Xbox 360 has like no exclusives and unfree internet
PS3 has the opposite of Xbox 360.

I had a 360 first. Was content with that until I got two RRoD in one year. That made me say **** Microsoft and get a PS3 instead. Plus I really wanted to play MGS4.
Every morning when I wake up I stare in the mirror and ask myself:"Who was I to doubt El Dandy?"
