I bought a Xbox 360 first from Gamestop about a year ago and I was very excited about it and loved it a lot. I have been playing many games for it and I have maybe disappointed in maybe about 3 or so games so far out of about 60 played. I love the set up and visuals of how the Xbox 360 is set up and all. I was a big fan of the first Xbox so I said that I would have to get the new one beacause of new generation graphics and all. I recently picked up a PS3 and played two games on it so far and I believe in my opinion that since it came out after the Xbox 360 it has a slight edge on graphics and it took more time for the backwards compatibility and the layout of the dashboards. The Xbox 360 has wonderful graphics, superior layout of the dashboard, more games out, great games, but lacks the backwards compatibility of playing all of the first xbox games. The PS3 on the other hand, has some features that the Xbox 360 does not have making it a lot better than the Xbox 360 at this point. First of all the layout of the dashboard is smoother and does more, has a straight connection to play online games and not having to use a credit card to make an account to play, has slightly better graphics, is fully backward compatible with plays all PS1 and PS2 games. In all, the Xbox is a great system and I love it, but to be honest, I think that the PS3 is slightly better.
