I think the 360 succeeds because of it's software, and ease of use. It has the best game library hands down. Then software modifications and updates have kept Live interesting and on the forefront of what an online service should be.

I'll agree with you on everything but the game library. The PS3 definitley caught up to the 360 in 2008, and PC always has good games.

Ill also agree to this. Also I'm with champ in that the ps3 has no game library argument is now defunct. 2008 saw a major jump in ps3 games.

The only thing I prefer over PS3 is how quick updates are downloaded.

High price, high failure rate, doesn't do what it was intended, not all it's cracked up to be, better/cheaper alternatives on the market, unwanted and unnecesary, draconian anti-consumer politics, lack of marketing, lack of consumer support, bad press, bar word of mouth, fanboy's malicious word of mouth, ignorance, lack of compatibility, corporate interests

Apart from high failure rates...which console are you talking about?
