What planet are you guys living on?
Unless I put my ear up to the console, fan noise for both consoles is irrelevant in my experience, the fact that I gave a rather reasonable explanation for Shaz's quiet xbox360 experience, and yet Duke you insist YOUR experience is FACT all in the same breath when it is apparent you have very little knowledge past first hand experience on the subject makes me disappointed for you.
Darq, man, grow up, you ran your mouth, and happened to run into someone who can call you on it. No, I dont need to get outside more, I do that plenty, dont be mad I get paid butt loads of scratch to make video games and you dont.........
While there is no arguing the role of personal experience in anyones purchase and use of either console, in the end, a fact sheet for hardware shows 360 to have a longer list of shinny stars next to its name.
Deal with it!
Oh yeah, more fuel to the fire:
-PS3 lacks in game XMB, 360 has had it since day one
-PS3 lacks an 25cent IR port, goodbye universal remote!
-PS3 market place is pants compared to 360's arcade, xbox 1 titles, tv shows, movies, dl'able game content, demo's, themes, etc
+360 has XNA!!! PS3 has.....nothing
+360's new time based parental control (While I dont give a crap about this one, its still a first, and a major feature for alot of parents that I think should not be overlooked)
And again, Ill provide fire for my competition as in 4 pages there still missing some obvious material:
-360 has a masonry brick power supply - wtf
- apparently 360 DVD and HD-DVD is pants benchmark wise
But of course you guys already knew this cuz your trying to give fair, balanced and objective input and not just fanboi'ing it all the way home.....
