This is a fact that has always baffled me... I know a lot of people that had a PS2 and loved it, and yet they own 360s instead of PS3s. I mean, if a company made a product you enjoyed, wouldn't you want to stay with them and give them another go? Its the same reason I bought a Vita. I loved my PSP for 6+ years, and I wanted to support their new handheld.

The 360 was cheaper and came out a year before the PS3. Plus all the former exclusives like Devil May Cry and Final Fantasy went multi-platform.
Honestly if you were interested in Blu-Ray or Sony's first party games like God of War or Uncharted, there really wasn't any reason to buy a PS3 over a 360 especially early on when the PS3 was stupid expensive.
You were the lightning in that rain. You can still shine through the darkness.
I forgot about the year headstart. That's probably a huge reason. Hope they release closer together this time.
No. Who the hell is going to buy a console just for the name? They went from the PS2 to the 360 because the 360 had games they were interested in, and odds are it wouldn't have mattered if the PS3 was released at exactly the same time right down to the last millisecond, if they wanted a 360, then they'd have got one regardless of whether or not they loved their PS2's.
