I have been gaming on PS3 for three years! Until recently I had bought an xbox and the first time I started it up and loaded MW3 I was a little nervous because of the controller BUT the first game I ever played guess what I had noticed! The lag you find in almost every game on PS3 was gone! So it all depends what games you play! If you play COD I would suggest xbox seeing as they have dedicated servers and have pretty well perfected online gaming rather than PS3 but ... I do still think PS3 is the more well built, longer lasting, less confusing console out there. PS3 is good if you dont care a great deal about gaming and just like to have fun every once in awhile and xbox if you really love to game! I also found that xbox has much more skillful players on it for cod plus cooler people to meet and chat with!
