Why did so many PS2 fans buy a 360 instead of a PS3?

It came out first and they wished they had bought an XBox the first time around.

came out first, duh.

1, because of the price $600 USD
2, because a lot of PS2 users used to have an XBOX also.
3, because the 360 did really good on its first couple of years.
4, more games since it was released early.
5, xbox live.

many reasons, actually.

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.


Because the 360 came first. That's why. simple as that.

Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

Silly question. Back then Everyone has a PS2. PS2 was the hottest console at that time. Moving to 360 was not hard considered it was released 1 year before PS3 and much improve graphics and online gameplay.

Because 360 does all the things PS3 does, but better. Blu ray is the only thing the 360 lacks.

That's just not true. Maybe with a few people that was the reason but not many...the release date didn't really matter much at all. I know it's hard for people on gamefaqs to understand but the majority of people that have an Xbox 360 or ps3 now did not have one the first year or 2 of their releases.
