In the end, Xbox only has the Halo games that make it better. The playstation is newer, has better graphics, has bluray games and DVDs but also regular DVDs. And online play is free. Those who say Xbox is better are just fanboys.
Halo is a classic and exclusive Microsoft game and is the main reason why a lot of people buy Xbox and Xbox 360s instead of PS3s. Xbox 360 was the first modern console(PS2 was technically the first "great" console, but isn't considered modern). The 360 has better online than the PS3, but the PS3 online is free! PS3 also has exclusive titles, but none of them as popular as Halo. 360 only has better graphics online, but if not online, definitely PS3 in graphics. Movies you can watch in both. Without online, 360's a dead console. But Live isn't free, so lots of people get PS3 instead because PSN is free.
