In the current generation, I patiently awaited the release of the PS3 before buying any next-gen console to see which console would better meet my preferences. I read every review and comparison article on the PS3 and the 360 I could get my hands on. The RROD issue almost convinced me to go with Sony. However, at the end of the day, Sony's ridiculous price point, the lack of top flight launch titles, and Dead Rising and Gears of War cinched it for me. I bought a 360 and got a Gold subscription to Xbox Live (XBL). I have never regretted my decision and have become used to the level of online service available on XBL."
