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)
MGS4
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

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.

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 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?"
