The NFL Sunday Ticket app, actually. We can't have a dish where we live, and since moving away from FL had been watching the Bucs games mostly at Buffalo Wild Wings, which was inconvenient, noisy, and expensive. There is a ton of complaining on the official PS3 boards about the quality of the feeds, but we haven't had many issues.

Anyways, since I already had a 360 and Wii, I didn't think at first I'd be using it much for gaming, but now it gets as much time as my 360 and way more than the Wii. I'm glad I went with the 320 gb since I'm buying tons of stuff off PSN now.

ETA: Actually, the original choice between the 360 and PS3 I made in '09 was very close, could have gone either way. I was a big PS2 fan.

All but the blu-ray option.
Oh and I also figured japanese developers were more likely to release games on the PS3 over 360.
Well that didn't turn out so well...

In addition to other reasons that have been mentioned, I just want to add that the PS3 controller is brilliant when you don't have Barrett-sized hands. >.>

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.

exclusives and I already had th other 2 parts of the gaming triangle PC and Wii.


Clearly the PS3 and Wii are the base, and PC sits on top of them.
