Microsoft Xbox 360
Advantages: layout, online community
Disadvantages: monthly subscription cost
The Microsoft XBOX 360 is by far one of the best if not the best gaming consoles you can buy. it is sleak by design has a flawless layout and one of the most extensive gaming communities around. the dynamics of this console and its set up are perfect for anyone who wants to really get involved within a gaming community. the touch of creating your own avatars gives it even more of an individual and personal touch that allows you to truely represent who you are. the only real draw back of the xbox 360 is the monthly or annual membership in order to use the online services or play online with your friends as opposed to the of playstation where this is free. the controller is perfectly ergonomically designed for ease of use that trumps playstation over and over, however i was still inclined to swap. this was for a few reasons, but predominantly my friends all had playstation and where it was free for online gaming i felt that i had no loyalty to xbox or any interest in staying faithful even though i prefer the console. if some proper changes where made into the cost of membership i would come back as the layout and community is far better, but that in my opinion does not equivilate to the cost. :(
Summary: could be better than ps3 if free
