So to be fair to the PS3, I said that my experience has so far been mostly good (although I have a feeling this is because I haven’t tried to do anything complicated with the XMB yet). I guess my good experience comes from the fact that there are a few games I enjoy playing on it, and also the fact that I can use my debit card in the PlayStation Store which is something I can’t do in the XBOX Marketplace (they don’t accept Maestro cards).
Warning: Rant ahead, if you are a PS3 fan-boy stop reading now. I don’t need your hate. For my birthday this year I bought myself a PS3 to go with my nice new 42” 1080p HDTV, this now completes my collection of current generation consoles as I also have a 360 and a Wii so I can tell you that this opinion comes from someone who isn’t biased to a particular console.
