Hey fellow Dtoiders, my name is Josh Abram, I got several names that make up the whole which is me. Darrgoth my PSN Tag, Braingame007 is my 360 tag and Senger which I post on here.(Was the name of my character in WoW). I am here today on Destructoid Live to tell you abit about myself. I own a PS3 and Xbox 360, I am into a lot of games, only games I do not really care for is sports titles unless is has the name Mario on it. The main type of genre I enjoy is RPGs, Even though the RPGs of today are going down hill minus a few great titles. I enjoy MMORPGs as well but at the moment I reside in none. I also enjoy playing good actions games, competitive fighting games and shooters ofcourse. Halo, Socom Confrontation, Killzone 2, Gears of War.
Before I mainly enjoyed to play competitively online but I am coming to like co-op play more as Co-op is coming back into play in major titles.

I have other interests as well outside of video games, I love to watch anime, the main site I use to watch anime is I watch all sorts of anime, not picky here at all, I even enjoy sports anime like Slam Dunk and Eye-Shield 21. Ofcourse though my favorite Anime of 3 of the top in Mainstream Japan, Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece. I watch alot of other series as well and am not a critic when it comes to anime by any means. Outside of anime though I like to read books written by R.A. Salvatore and David Gemmell. Fantasy Novels.

Anyhow I need to get going, so I will finish the rest of the about me at a later point. This should be good enough to make Patman Happy for now =)

Why? I ask because all the extras you get with the ps3 simply make it worth the already once lowered price, $400 system is an amazing price for what you get, yet people still complain? I will show you what I mean.

PS3-$400 System
Come with a high quality Blue Ray Player drive
40 Gig HDD, 20 Gig bigger than the 360's standard HDD
Wireless Network card built in
Free Net play ( Can't deny Xbox Live is great and has tons of subscribers, but some people don't see the sense into being forced to pay to play online)
Has a Internet Browser built in and has full use of a Keyboard and Mouse.

Xbox 360 Pro- $299.99 System
Normal Dvd Drive
20gig HDD- worthless if you like to download demos and games.
No wireless Network built in and costs $100 to buy it new.
Costs $100 to buy a new 60Gig or a used 120 gig HDD

This is not a PS3 vs. 360 post, I have both systems and support both companies. But you are looking at a 100$ increase but you get alot more for your money. Not to mention when I bought my Xbox 360 for $350 brand new and when it released they had a marked up price, and people was selling them on ebay for $700+.
I do understand ya if they dropped their prices $50-$100 on all the PS3s they would probably fly off the shelf, but you are already definately getting your money's worth with the $400 system.

I also understand we are in a recession and an extra $100 hurts, but if you can't afford it in the first place, do you really even need to be buying a game console in the first place?
