It's a pretty bad comparison when your trying to compare systems. I don't mean to be biased but......... FPS games: PS3 has (exclusively) Killzone, and every multi-port imaginable. X360 has Gears of War, Halo, Bioshock (for now) Advantage: Microsoft RPGs: PS3 has FFXIII, and possibly KH3, but that's in question. Both are iffy at the moment. Xbox 360 has Mass Effect, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, and Trusty Bell/Eternal Sonata, Fable series. Advantage: Depends on if the SE games actually are PS3-exclusives. If so it's equal. If not, the advantage is clearly to MS. Racers: PS3 has Gran Turismo (among others) X360 has Forza and PGR series Advantage: Microsoft. GT is great, but Forza, although lesser known, is leaps ahead of GT in every way. Multi-Ports: PS3 has the vast majority X360 has a slightly larger majority. Advantage: X360 for now. The 360 is typically the lead platform for next-gen to dev for for the more rudamentry games (EA, Activision, ect). The more advanced ones (DMC4) are probably going to be equal. However, at some point 4-5 years from now, the PS3 could be better. The 360 not only has an equal library to the PS3 for the first year of release (it seems to still bode in the 360s favor vs. PS3s for how great the 2006 lineup was). But more importantly; the 2008 season of games is going to be very pro Wii and most likely neutral or anti PS3. Also, about RPGs on MS systems: Of the top 10 Xbox games, 3 were RPGs that sold over 1m copies. Morrowind (1.8m), KOTOR 1 and 2 (1.95 and 1.3), and Fable (2.6m). It's a fallacy that Xbox owners dislike RPGs. It's just merely that MS overlooked 1st party RPGs until they bought Lionhead and banrolled Mistwaker. Heck, look at Blue Dragon. It's tier ratios are just as good as DOA3 was for the first box. In other news for the 360; Enchant Arm ended up @ 150k units in the US (compared to PS3s 30k or so). Oblivion obviously sold about 10x better on the 360 (but that's expected). Xbox 360 fans buy alot of shooters, yes, but they buy in equal numbers, any good game that makes itself worthy (for the 360, look at GH2, Oblivion, Dead Rising, Crackdown and Saints Row. All are, or will be million sellers). There are tons of 1m+ sellers this year that aren't going to be shooters such as Madden 08, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Forza 2, Trusty Bell (maybe), GTAIV, and probably a few others. Overall, as a 360 owner, I am far more impressed with the software I buy, and can buy, versus anything the PS3 could offer me. To me, the PS3 is far too expensive for what it's going to provide to a gamer. Very few exclusives, and the exclusives it does have (aside from FFXIII, which I doubt will be exclusive), are all Sony-made, and just....aren't to my tastes compared to the far superior offerings that MS is making like Fable, Mistwaker titles, Forza, ect. MS is putting out far higher quality games right now vs. Sony.

Back from the dead, I'm afraid.
