So, like many other gamers, gals and guys, I am questioning my PS3 loyalty. I love my PS3 (it nearly died once, but I brought it back to life with CPR…I kid you not, it works fine now) but I also own an Xbox 360.
What do I think?
Now, my Xbox 360 gets almost NO love from me, because I would have to take five seconds to unhook the PS3 and hook the Xbox up. I also didn’t like the thought of paying for online access, (I mean…I don’t even pay for my internet in the apartment!) so I don’t have an Xbox Live account.
And, of course, there is the issue with the hands…
My small, lady hands.
Now, this is not to say my hands are weak. I boxed in some form or fashion for many years of my life. But…they are small. And the Xbox 360 controller is not. Not at all.
In fact, the size of the controller, more than anything else, has always been the reason I stuck with PS3. The only reason I even have an Xbox 360 is that my good friend was selling it and like forty games plus the controller, remote, headset, etc. for a RIDICULOUSLY low price, and I just couldn’t pass up on that deal (actually made my money back AND paid for Dragon Age II by selling most of the games).
I guess, for once, I have no bottom line. If the PSN doesn’t come back up soon, I may start to lose patience and just make the switch. On the other hand, I have plenty of non-online games for my PS3 and, as I mentioned, prefer the controller. Interestingly enough, before the PSN crisis, I was considering selling the Xbox 360. Now I’m holding onto it to see what develops.
What do you think?
So ladies, I want to know if I am the only one who will stay loyal to PSN for the size of those wonderful controllers.
Which console do you prefer? Why? Does the PSN system being down make you want to switch? Have you switched?
