    They do have a similar system (in North America, at least) you can buy a Playstation Network point (gift) card.

    we also sell sony point cards. not as expensive as xbox or wii, but u cant get as much for them.
    the biggest thing atm is the games. most of the rpg's are xbox.
    dont get me wrong, sony ps3 slim kicks arse (sorry sky)
    but without the games i like i wont be looking into it.
    all xbox for me

    No reason to be sorry, I have my reasons for perferring the PS3

    1) It's a BluRay player, one of two we have in the house; my PS3 is on a dedicated 1080p 46" flatscreen.
    2) I have a 250GB drive internally and a 500GB drive externally; I have over 80GB of music and 75GB of movies that I can play and stream to my TV and stereo system; I can choose a playlist of any of those songs onscreen; and have them play as music alone, as background music for a picture slideshow (I have 50GB of pics on it), or use that music while I'm in game.
    3) It interfaces with my PSP, I can transfer files and gamesaves between them (ie Final Fantasy VII) and remote play.
    4) I can surf the net with a full keyboard and mouse, video chat and audio chat.
    5) It has all the games I want to play, Including the upcoming Final Fantasy 13 and Sony exclusive Final Fantasy 14
    6) It has slots for almost any memory stick so I can view, save and print photos from almost any brand camera, or the camera directly via USB (Did I mention I have a printer hooked up to it?)
    7) PSN is FREE
    8) It puts out at 1080P, upscales DVDs and puts audio out in DTS.
    9) My model, originally the 60GB version before I upgraded the internal drive, can play 95% of the PS2 library and every PS1 game.

    Much more than a gaming console.

    Well, at least I can use my PS3 to go online if my PC breaks down.

    Of course, you could have done that with your Wii too; instead of making up some lame excuse for abandoning us for over a month. :321:

    I had both. At the moment I prefer th 360 but I do not think poorly of the ps3. I sold my ps3 to pay some bills as well as my psp. I will one day get another ps3 but am enjoying the 360... Though I don't really game much anymore...

    PS3 has more applications, free internet access, and has an internet browser.

    PS3.

    Although I own a 360.

    Have you ever tried going online using a Wiimote? Not much fun. Must be why the Wii didn't make this list.

    I didn't know Sony had a similar system until recently, mainly because I can't find a shop that sells cards for the PS3. That could be down to the fact that fewer people own a PS3, but it's still a pain in the backside. I don't fancy taking a three hour train ride just to pick up a card. Then again, very few games have add-ons that are worth downloading so I'm probably not missing out on much.

    I don't particularly enjoy filling Bill Gates' pockets in order to play online, but by and large I have no complaints with Xbox Live. The 360 does sound like a train passing through your cranium when it's running, but apart from that it's not a bad system. It's all a matter of choice, I suppose. You pay for Xbox Live, therefore you get a better interface. Sony's is free and and therefore comes across as souless and empty. As an owner of both consoles, I have to admit I spend more time on the Xbox than I do on the PS3. Maybe if Sony had less contempt for consumers things might change.

    There are persistent rumours that the price of Gold Membership is going to double soon. Considering that Sony don't require you to pay to play, that's reason enough for me to switch formats. If Microsoft are dumb enough to hike the price (and considering it's their main revenue earner on Xbox Live I'm sure they will) then they can kiss my ass goodbye. I've only just bought an Xbox and paying £40 to play online rankles. Paying £80 will pretty much push me to the PS3. I'm hoping they have more sense.

    I hope they do hike up the price. It'll mean fewer brain-dead teens playing online and ruining matches with their petulance.

    Petulance is the prerogative of the young. Common sense takes time to seep into the brain.:D

    Lol @ paying to play online. That concept always made me laugh.
