Regardless 90% of tournaments out there, large or small, official or something set up after school runs on PS3 consoles.
As regardless of what Xbox 360 owners say (yes I am going to trash the Xbox 360, this comes from a tech perspective not a fan boy’s perspective),
for 2 player off line play the PS3 is more 1000% reliable. Before the Xbox 360 Elite the failure rate of the Xbox 360 was 1 out of 3, that means one out of three Xbox 360 Consoles had a RROD or Red Ring of Death. Yes the PS3 had the Yellow light of Death, but the Yellow light was a 1 out of 10,000 chance of happening. You are more likely to get in a car accident. Yes Microsoft finally stop being retarded and fix the major design flaws of the Xbox 360. Yes the flaws were really major on the older model Xbox 360 consoles. Cheap solder was used with a lower melting point. Poorly designed PCU and GPU coolers and ram chips that over heat with very poor thermal pads for cooling, and a ineffectual single dual fan.
A Fan that designed to run off 12 volts was running on 5. And this not mentioning how some consoles would shred disk that were place in the disk drive.
The other reason is Evo got sponsored by Sony, and Sony gave Evo the PS3 units that Evo now uses, and pretty much everyone else uses Evo standards.
Even a few comic and anime conventions use Evo standards for their video game tournaments.
Only MLG uses Xbox 360 consoles, and Major League Gaming is the Fucking devil him self.
I agree with rtdzing’s statement
