An Xbox 360 showing the Ring of Death.

In that past, I have stated on numberous occasions how the PS3 and the Xbox 360 were both great systems. I still believe this to a degree as well. In terms of games, and exclusive titles, both systems are great in their own right, both systems are powerful and capable of producing some kick ass graphics. Both systems are power house consoles.

All of the above is true, however in terms of which system is better overall, my opinion has changed significantly. I now believe the PS3 overall to be better than the xbox 360. The reason for my change of opinion? Well, to be honest the 360 is unstable. I have owned 2 xbox 360s and both have suffered the notorious Red ring of Dead or as commonly referred to RROD.

Sure, systems break down, that’s to be expected, but the xbox 360 tends to break down it seems like, shortly after the warranty expires. It’s ridiculous! Does the PS3 have technical issues like this? Sure, but it doesn’t happen anywhere near as often as it does with the 360.  The idea that a system could break down as often as the 360 does is insane!

Will I dump my x360 in a garbage chute somewhere and stick solely to the PS3? Doubtful. I do have the 360 on an extended warranty through Square Trade, and will send it in there for repairs, but when it comes to getting new games, I will be sticking to the PS3 releases and am as of tonight cancelling my Xbox live account, and instead upgrading to Playstation Plus.

Basically? The 360 has gone from being the system of choice for me, to just being there. Sort of an after thought, or on the occasion that a nifty exclusive title comes out.
