When the playstation 3 first came out back in Nov 17 2006 we were so exited when we got the ps3 at launch when we got home we took the ps3 out of the box and hooked it up to our tvs and play resistance and a few other launch titles. I got my ps3 in march of last year. The ps3 at first was getting good positive reviews from the gaming media resistance was good. Later the gaming media after a couple mouths of the ps3 launch people started getting negetive about the ps3 because it didn`t have as good games as sonys competitor microsoft for the xbox 360. Of course microsoft would over hype thier xbox 360 exclusive halo 3. Gameplay hd (a voom hd network channel for gamers) all they ever play is xbox 360 and pc games no ps3 games or even the wii games. Game develpers at first were having a tuff time trying to figure out how to develop a ps3 game and since the xbox 360 has been out before ps3 they had spent a year figuring out the xbox 360 in 2006. Also to since the xbox 360 has more memory than the ps3 develpers liked the xbox 360 in some ways better because of more memory. But the ps3 has blu-ray which carrys more information than the standard dvds used for the 360 so develpers could put more content on a ps3 game because of blu-ray disc. You could also watch blu-ray movies on your ps3, (i own black hawk down on blu-ray disc) play music, look at photos, and chat with your friends on psn. The only thing that i`m very upset with is how everybody keeps giving the microsoft exclusives better ratings than the sony exclusives. Microsofts xbox 360 was getting the red rings of death and the ps3 had no problems. (some but not as bad as xbox 360s problems) I was gonna get an xbox 360 for my birthday in August 2007 but i read that in July 2007 Microsoft had the most defective xbox 360 units out in stores which is why i didn`t get one. Sony was holding some exclusives but Microsoft paid companies to make the sony exclusives also come on xbox 360 like assassins creed and some other titles. Microsoft is also disloyal to thier cutomers because whenever a third-party develper wants to come out with free content to download off xbox live marketplace microsoft forces them to make xbox 360 gamers pay for the downloadable content. Sony doesn`t force third-party develpers to come out with more content. If third-party develpers want to come out with free content on ps3 sony doesn`t make the third-party develpers charge money for the downloadable content. Also the reason why microsoft makes third-party develpers come out with more downloadable content is so that it won`t come out on ps3 (like the fear maps for exaple that never came out on ps3) so that you have to buy an xbox 360 just to play that content.
