I have had both consoles for a few years now. I would give it to Xbox for the online play. And even though you pay $60 a year. You get what you pay for. The experience feels more better. As for the ps3 I like it for its exclusives. They have the best campaigns. Also I do watch blue ray movies from time to time. Over all I enjoy both my consoles but I gotta give it to the Xbox for making everything mesh. Being able to play one game and still talk to your friends is a plus. It just comes down to you. If most of your friends gave Xbox get a Xbox if they have ps3's then get a ps3. It's all about having fun with your friends.
