My System Specs

I like the 360 but I play more on my PC. And guess what.... my 360 just got the 3 red lights today :(. I have a Wii and a 360 and might get a PS3 if more good game come out for it. MGS4 might make my bro get a PS3. But with all the "next gen" systems that I have I play on the PC the most. One big plus for me is mods for PC which extend the life of almost every game by a lot. One game like RTW and Hale life 2, there are so many mods that give me at least 5 times more game play length.

I'm bent towards a PlayStation 3. I'd hate to write another exposition in defense of my preference, but I'll simplify it by saying that I like, and understand, the realistic vision of Sony's to centralize your home entertainment experience in a single box. Right out of the box, it does everything you would with a computer (avec Linux), DVD or Blu-ray player, CD or SACD player, and home MP3 player would do. It should accept pretty much any PC mouse/keyboard and as many external hard drives as you can plug in, while DVR (digital video recorder) functionality will be added soon via patch. And it plays games.
