With both systems now available at $299, I’m quite torn as to which one to go for. I realize that the 360 has a superior library of games, but the blu-ray capacity of the PS3 and the fact that I don’t plan on playing many games beyond fighting games (SFIV, blazeblue, kof) has me leaning towards a PS3. However, if the disparity in online experience for these games is significant (I’ve heard quite a bit of praise for the 360), then I can do without blu-ray and go for the better online community.
Anyone have any useful observations concerning this? Is the level of competition and functional competency about the same between the two systems, or does one outshine the other significantly enough to demand loyalty?
