You can plug in a bigger hard drive, even if It didn't come with one. They don't need a next-gen drive to play next gen games(look at the PC). PS3 has to wait for any real games to come out.
RRod is getting better with the newer systems they are putting out, plus Microsoft will help you out with the three year warranty(unlike Sony not giving a f*ck about there PS2 drive errors and doing nothing about them).
So ya stick with your fanboyish mentality and stick with the system that promises so much and gives so little.
Point 1: Yes, I can get a bigger HDD, but I'd really like to have more than two size choices and not have to pay $180 for 120GB or $100 for 20GB (I mean seriously, WTH??!) -->fail
Point 2: A BD drive allows PS3 games to be far better than 360 games simply because it provides more space. Will multi-plats be that different? No. (devs can't make them too different or risk backlash. look at Madden 08 for PS3) But PS3 exclusives will blow 360 exclusives out of the water simply because the DVD is not big enough. Look at Uncharted and GT5:P. Those are both 2nd gen PS3 games and they blow 3rd and 4th gen 360 games out of the water even though the PS3's hardware is more difficult to program for. The reason for this is not because of the pow3r of th3 C3ll, (though it is slightly more capable than the Xenon) but is simply because 9 GB is not enough space. Oh, and did I mention that the PS3's BD drive won the format war? That's a FAR bigger market than the VG industry can even HOPE to reach. -->fail
Point 3: What games did the 360 have after 12 months? GeoW? a good game yes, but the PS3 had Warhawk, Uncharted, Heavenly Sword, (little short but still a good game) and R&C. -->fail
Point 4: ummm.... I don't seen to recall 33% of PS2s having DRE. Also, what does that have to with this gen?
That's what I thought -->fail
