"the types of gamer that the PS3 tends to attract is certainly a more casual sort"

This statement isn't even remotely true. I don't think you know what casual means.

" so we choose to spend our preciuos gaming time on more story driven single- player games rather than adrenaline-pumping online mayhem."

Two of the games you listed, Killzone and Uncharted, have great online multiplayer. Again, this makes no sense.

Except that Uncharted has multiplayer (Journey does too, but it's just co-op). You fail to cover the wide variety of other exclusive games on BOTH platforms that have online multiplayer, like Left 4 Dead, Killzone, Resistance, Forza, Gran Turismo, Demon's Souls, etc.

I only noticed this with CoD. Fighting gamers are better on PS3 as far as I can tell from experiecne, but other than that, I don't see too much of a difference between both communities in terms of skill.

How vast, exactly, is your experience with fighting games on both the Xbox 360 and the PS3?

Generally these games have matchmaking algorithms designed to prevent people from playing against really good players until they've themselves demonstrated a certain amount of skill (because good players don't really want to play against newbies anyway.)

Well the Dualshock is certainly more "percise" than your grammar and spelling.

Ehh, to be honest, not too broad.

I actually agree with the OP. I went back to the Xbox 360 because I wanted to play Gears of War and I also wanted a more interactive online experience. The PS3 is almost dead-silent unless you're playing a popular game, like Call of Duty or Uncharted. And even then most of the games I played were dead-silent. Now when I hop on Gears 3, which came out a year ago, there's a good chance I'll hear people talking throughout the game.

Of course, people talking isn't necessarily a good thing. Some people take the game too seriously and start trash-talking, others are just plain weird. But I still have a better chance of actually meeting someone I want to play with and add to my friend's list on the 360 than I ever did playing the PS3. It's like the PS3 is more geared towards those that love single-player campaigns, since a lot of PS3 games have a pretty good single-player campaign.

When it comes to the controller & competitiveness, any competitor will be able to adapt to either controller, no exceptions. It's not that hard. I do agree the 360 controller is better because of its size (I have big hands) and the triggers, but other than that, the controller is irrelevant..........unless it's the PC. But that's a different story.
