Now I don't want to knock the PS3 or your belief of how superior it is to the 360 but you seem to be of the mindstate that it's so far beyond the 360 that it's ridiculous.  Your reasons behind this are that some exclusive A-List games designed by company A are superior to some multi-plat or  B-List game designed by company B.  I'm not sure that makes sense.  I mean, look at games like Gears of War 2, Halo 3, or Assassins Creed (multi-plat).  These are games that feature HUGE draw distances but at the same time look just as good (in my opinion, much better) than a game like inFamous--and featured TONS of NPC's running around with their own AI.  As for the 360 holding a game like FF13 back, it wasn't the best JRPG around (it's definitely no Lost Odyssey) but can you name any other JRPG that looks better?  How could the 360 be holding that game back if it's the best looking around?

Now it's a great thing for PS3 owners to have such great exclusives (although, I'm only interested in two or three of them, for sure) in 2011.  More games is definitely a good thing.  Dismissing a great game simply because it suddenly got announced on another platform despite the probability that it's the exact same game it would have been, otherwise (as far as we can prove) is just the wrong stance to have.  I've never played the Killzone series so that may be the one--but aside from Heavy Rain and God of War 3, there's nothing (not even Uncharted 2) that seemes to be a quantum leap beyond what we've already seen on the 360.  The two are closer in power than you want to admit.


How come? Heavy Rain doesn't look as good as Uncharted 2 from my experience, I wasn't even blown by Heavy Rain.

Don't want to disrupt you all's debate, but HR had quite a few things going for it, in an extreme way, that not many (if any) titles have kept up with, such as facial animation (Heavenly Sword was better during cutscenes, but HR did all facial animation in real time), character models, and indoor environments. I agree with D21 on one hand, the 360 has put up quite the fight, and while I'd argue that Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, HR, & God of War III all look better than the best from the 360, it's not something that rewarding outside of bragging rights.
