The PS3 didn't have the wide range of amazing exclusives like the PS2 had. Why buy a PS3 when you can basically get the same thing on 360?

Who the hell is going to buy a console just for the name?

Um, lots of people. That's where the name "fanboy" comes from. They blindly defend any stupid move because they're too rose tinted to see it otherwise. They ignore which system has the games they want because they want to be "loyal"

Bad press and high price, but honestly most people will just go with what's popular rather than make their own informed decisions.

I got a 360 for the same reason I had a PS2, Xbox, and GC.

I didn't have a Xbox so I went with Xbox360 first. Around late 2007. PS3 prices at that time were high and most games at that time still comes out for PS2.

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

It came out a year ahead of the PS3 and was cheaper for what essentially is the same hardware performance.

Cheaper, 'better' controller, everyone else already had it and most games run better.
