Forums - Gaming Discussion - Who owns both ps3 and 360, and have a similar problem?

I choose to play games on my 360 over ps3, so multiplayer wise I choose this as my console

 

but recently I have been trying to build up my ps3 collection more and I have to say, I haven't completed a number of games for the console nor do i care to go back to finish them....where as on 360 I completely finish them and try to get all the achievements also.

I dont understand why....perhaps it's the achievements? Anyone else have a similar problem

Ps3 has its trophy system so theres not much difference between the 2, as for not replaying your Ps3 games mabye you just like Xbox more?

Nope. Tend to leave 360 to collect dust while I play on PS3. Any games on 360 that I care to play are mult-platform, so they're on PS3 already, and perform better. And, in most cases, play better because of the 360 controller.

The design has came a long way since the Dreamcast controller, which hurts the crap out of my thumbs, but, it's still not quite there yet. Most people I know buy special controllers for 360 to get around that problem.

I'm very similar to you in the regard that I play MP and multiplatform games on 360. Almost all my games on that console are MP based which I play with friends, so most of my time is spent on the 360. I play mostly SP and exclusive games on my PS3. It has some awesome RPGs which I'm catching up on. Whenever I feel like having time by myself and not be bothered by anyone in my game, I just go to my PS3.

Maybe because you have games you like more on the 360 that you play it more. See if you find similar types of games on the PS3, then you're more likely to finish them. I don't think it has much to do with the console itself as it is to do with the games.

I know it has trophies but it seems more than a hassle than achievements for some reason, perhaps I am biased towards 360

I hope I'm reading this right.


But you say for an example you have "GAME A" on both systems. You got "GAME A" on the Xbox360 and finished it and later on you bought "GAME A" again on the PS3?

If that is the case - When you tend to play a game of the same genre or in the same series you tend to get "burnt out" or at least that is my experience, now if its the same exact game - the chances of getting burnt out are higher and the fact that you would get bored quickly since you finished the game recently.

Now if you waited 2-3 years after finishing the game on one system and replay it again on another system it might not affect you so much. That is what I did with the Kingdom Hearts series. I managed to play the first 3 games at least 3 times ever since their release because of a span of few years across each playthrough. I am planning to play it again sometime soon maybe this year or next year.


I dont think Trophies/Achievements are the issue that is unless your goal was to collect all the Trophies/Achievements.

I'm the opposite. The Playstation controller has been hurting my hands since the original, but the Dreamcast and 360 controlls have always felt comfortable and have never cramped my hands up. I don't know anybody with 3rd party controlers for either 360 or PS3, everyone has full sets of official controlers. While some of my friends agree with my on the Playstation controllers, none of them agree with you on the 360 controller.

I have EXACTLY the same problem.

I have an xbox 360 but barely play on it, I have Gears 3 and Max Payne 3 on it but haven't even touched those games. Whereass on PS3 I bought 50 games in 2012 alone and got more than 15 Plaitnum trophies.




Hmm, we own both consoles here (allthough the 360 recently died), playtime is divided about equal but I simply prefer the games on different consoles sometimes. For me, its mostly down to controls, I don't care about achievements at all and the visuals and features are often completely alike.
For racing games and beat 'em up's I prefer the PS3 due to the Dualshock 3 controller and for 3rd person shooters I much prefer the 360's controller.
Simple as that.

No I don't buy double of the same game for each console, it's just games in general for ps3

the only ones I actually finished and actually tried getting trophies and replayed was uncharted 2 and ratchet n clank,

the rest I haven't finished with, which is a damn shame
