Keep it, you can get exclusives you want on both systems. I have all three, without having to sell one.

I don't have a PS3 but I would pick the PS3 over the Xbox360.
-Even though XBL is relatively cheap, stuff like Map Packs are a mandatory to do most things in that game, which cost extra.
-Xbox used to do, "When the next Map Pack comes out, the older one is free." Not anymore. You still have to pay for Map Packs for Call of Duty 2/3!
-Lag. If your connection isn't the best, you might have a hard time playing. Plus, sometimes you are thrown into a European Server and for some games, that is terrible. (Gears)
-You might get a little fun out of Halo 3/ODST but unless you love Halo that much, it won't last you long. And TrueSkill™️ is pointless because everyone is making a new account so they can rank up faster because they suck. You could be a 10 in a ranked game versing some losers who make new accounts and are actually a 40. Not fair at all.
-Your Xbox might overheat if you play it too much so no all-nighters with your friends unless you chill at the Dashboard.

I now have a PC, a Wii, and a PS3, and after having tried out my brother's 360, i know that ps3 is better. Here is the updated version of the list i made for MLD a while ago, which shows the main reasons why the PS3 is better than the 360:

A) Internal Blue Ray Player

B) Upgradable Hard Drive ($100 for 500gb is great)

C) Internal Wi-Fi included

D) Rechargeable controllers

E) Multi Media capabilities (compatible with more file types, disc types, etc.)

F) More AAA exclusives (Halo and Gears are the only games I've ever heard of that are exclusive to 360)

Here a list of some of the great PS3 games:

Exclusives now and upcoming:

Uncharted 1 Drakes Fortune and Uncharted 2 Among Thieves
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, and Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time
Killzone 2
Resistance 1 and 2
InFamous
Little Big Planet
God of War 3
MAG
The Last Guardian
Metal Gear Solid 4
Valkyria Chronicles
Socom Confrontation
Heavenly Sword
Time Crisis 4
Disgaea 3
All the Motorstorm games
Afrika
Eyepet
FF13vs.
Tales of Vespearia
Twisted Metal for PS3
Heavy Rain
Grand Turismo 5




Downloadable Content:

Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty
Flower
Life with Playstation and Folding at Home (See bellow)
Siren Blood Curse
Fat Princess


G) Free internet service (XBL is $50 or so a year, and PSN is free forever)

H) Free internet browser (is there even an internet browser for 360?)

I) PS3 has the ability to download games and HD movies over the internet.

J) Smaller form factor (the PS3 slim is smaller and lighter than the 360)

K) Longevity: 360 has Red Ring Of Death (RROD) and PS3 only has Yellow Light Of Death (YLOD). PS3 has about a 1.7% failure rate, and 360 has about a 35% failure rate (the newer ones i mean; not the arcades and the platinum since they have about a 55.6% failure rate.)

L) Online Multiplayer is free on PS3, but not on 360.

M) Better graphics (look at Uncharted 2, Metal Gear Solid 4, or many other games that make full use of PS3’s hardware)

N) PS3 has Folding at Home, which is a feature that helps scientists find cures for diseases like Breast Cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, etc. That’s right; PS3 can help save lives.

Get a 360 once u mod it u can get free games lol all you have to do is buy those Blank DVD Drives. My friend modded his and he has like a crap load of burned games. And he gets them up to 2 weeks before release. The only bad thing about this is if u get the red ring u cant send it to microsoft because u modded it?

online services (Things like Life with Playstation, Wii channels (like the news channel, the nintendo channel, etc,) or downloading movies, games, demos, add-ons, etc.) is not the same as online multiplayer (multiple players playing in the same game.)

The problem is that if you mod a 360, it's warranty is voided and if it gets red ring of death (there's a good chance it will) then your screwed.

Besides, as i listed above, PS3 has a lot of features and advantages over 360.

Get a PS3, but for God's sake, don't sell your Wii. The 360 has better online than the PS3, but the PS3 doesn't emulate a lemming's self-preservation instinct nor do you have to pay for online.

If someone is going to mod one's xbox, you might as well fix the RROD issue.

It isn't that hard to fix the RROD on the xbox360. Would cost you about $5, but still, why the hell should someone need to fix that kind of shit?
