The PS3 slim does have backwards compatibility, but only with disc-based PS1 games (not including downloadable PS2 and PS1 titles or the HD collections).

Just get a Wii, it has the better exclusives. PS3 exclusives are bad, and if you don't like Halo all the other good games are available on PC anyway.

How can you not say the PS3 has a better library? I suppose you can say that from a Localization stand point, but take the time to learn more than one language and you'll see options open up...

Saying that the 360 has a remotely close library of games overall compared to the PS3 is far beyond the truth.

Edit: This also falls upon whether someone actually enjoys playing games in general and isn't really picky. -Shrug-

"I own both consoles" seems to be the new "I have black friends". Why do you feel you need to stay your opinion on this board over and over again?

It's not a fact that the PS3 has a better library than the 360. It's an opinion, just as it's only an opinion that the 360 has a better library than the PS3. Granted, I think the PS3 has a better library than the 360, but that's all that is, an opinion.

Other than Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 (which happen to be my two favorite games of all time), and Xenoblade and Zelda: Skyward Sword (both of which I just started and love), the Wii library is severely lacking IMO. I own a Wii, a 360, and a PS3, and I honestly think the PS3 has the overall best library out of them all. My opinion of course.

That's your opinion, not a fact. Just like how it's my opinion that other than the Halo games, Gears 3, Alan Wake, and Crackdown 1, the 360 game library is incredibly overrated or just downright bad compared to the PS3's game library, which looking at the links below seems like the general opinion.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interactive_Achievement_Awards

The PS3 has the better reviewed game library compared to the 360 game library according to both metacritic and gamerankings (sites that get the aggregate score of a game by averaging the review scores of sites, publications, etc. like IGN, gamespot, EGM, Gametrailers, Giant Bomb, 1up, Gameinformer, etc.), the PS3 library has won more game of the year awards than the 360 library, technobuffalo picked the PS3 as the winner of this gen's console wars in terms of quality over the 360, IGN and Cnet both picked the PS3 over the 360 as the overall more powerful platform, IGN's polls asking fans which was the most quality platform of 2011 and of this console generation both showed that most favored the PS3 over the 360, oh, and I own both a 360 and a PS3 and I love/play my PS3 much moar. That's a whole lot of "facts" that trump yours. =]

every game that comes out for ps3 and and xbox always gets better reviews on the xbox like mass effect 3, half life 2, portal 2 fight night champion, batman arkham city, crysis 2, street fighter x tekken, black ops, modern warfare 2 and 3 and a bunch more so the xbox is better. go search it up on metacritic or wikipedia which states all the scores for each game

Practically everything you said was wrong except for Half-Life 2 and Fight Night Champions because Crysis 2, Batman: Arkham City, Street Fighter X Tekken, and Black Ops were all rated higher on the PS3 while the rest had the same scores on both consoles (although Portal 2 should've gotten higher scores on the PS3 since it had more content and features than either the PC or the 360 version and it was also better performing than the 360 version, though like almost always when comparing a multiplat across consoles, not by much). You are literally making stuff up. Even if it were true that most multiplats are rated better on the 360 (which it isn't), the PS3 still has the higher rated exclusive game library. Besides, the differences between scores are almost always due to a 360 only critic or a PS3 only critic giving a higher or lower score than the other, not the same critics, so this is a pretty poor argument. Too bad so sad fangirl. Downvote away, but it won't stop your butthurt. All your denial is not going to make the truth go away. =(

PS3 took your 2010 GOTY.. your console's only must play franchise.. and made it better. That's like Burger King making a better Big Mac. A better Big Mac that comes with free fries. Oh and it's on 1 disc.. so it's a better big mac, free fries, and a chocolate shake. And it's a meal you won't have to return in 6 months.

"im not a fanboy, i have both but im just saying when a ps3 game comes out it always has glitches and thats why i dont buy ps3 games no more which on the other hand xbox never suffers from that"

According to digital foundry AND lenseoftruth, Final Fantasy XIII, L.A. Noire, Devil May Cry 4, Battlefield 3, Darksiders, Just Cause 2, Saint's Row the Third, BioShock, Oblivion, Mass Effect 2, Portal 2, the Assassin's Creed titles, Vanquish, and Dark Souls are all some multiplats that run and look better on the PS3, and alot of these are on multiple discs for the 360 while they're on a single disc for the PS3 (some of these I've verified for myself). Even when a game is slightly better on one platform over another, the differences are almost always incredibly insignificant. When they're not, they get fixed via patching (like Darksiders on the 360 and Skyrim on the PS3).

"like call of duty for example, when i got black ops amd mw3 for the ps3 they both had many issues online and i try them on the xbox and nothing wrong with it on xbox live."

Wrong. At launch, both versions of both MW3 and Black Ops had online issues, especially concerning Call of Duty Elite.

" it just shows that they dont care about the ps3 "

Yet, the PS3 gets more exclusive content that's never coming to the 360 from multiplatform releases, as seen with games like Batman: Arkham Asylum, Battlefield 3, Portal 2, Dead Space 2, L.A. Noire, Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations, Mafia 2, Red Dead Redemption, BioShock, Star Ocean 4, Eternal Sonata, UFC: Undisputed, and Mortal Kombat 9, despite the fact that PSN is free.

"so thats why my trash ps3 went to the attic and the ps3 also is not made for any fighting game because the controller sucks."

Saying the 360 controller is better for fighting games than the DualShock 3 is like saying that the DualShock 3 (without the triggers) is better for first-person shooters than the 360 controller. The 360 controller's d-pad is horrid, which sucks because it's integral for fighting games. The 360 controller is slightly more comfortable than the DualShock 3 for me, but IMO, that's all it has going for it.

"I would sell my ps3 but nobody wants to buy that trash."

Is that why since both consoles have been on the market there have been more PS3's sold worldwide than 360s according to NPD numbers and VGchartz? =]

I still have my 20gb pro from 06..its rrod twice but fixed promptly each time and has been almost 4 years since its last hickup and I leave it on for days at a time...personaly I prefer the 360 over ps3...i haven't touched my ps3 to play a game in over a year it kind of sits in our bedroom to use for Netflix before bed...ive been playing Xbox since 2003 and playstation never really intrigued me after that...my ps2 sat and collected dust back in the day and my ps3 is doing the same thing...moat of my friends all have a 360 but I will admit that it's nice when I do want to play an online game on the ps3 @ll i have to do is pay for the game...but my over all preference is Xbox...i like the way the controller feels, I like the way live is set up (party chat specifically), I strongly feel more accomplished with achievements than i do trophies, i like the way the dashboard is (never found navigation tedious or hard to find things)...which one to get is all about preference and you need to play both to decide...but for me i would go with Xbox if u had to pick just one but ultimately i would get both...

"go check again. first place sales go to the wii then xbox then ps3, go check on gamespot or xplay on g4 and they tell you everything."

Read my comment again. I said there have been more PS3s sold than 360s worldwide since BOTH consoles have been on the market. I was dismissing the whole year that the 360 was out before the PS3 came out. The 360 had a lead of 10 million units sold worldwide until the PS3 was released. Now that lead has been decreased to around 2-3 million units. Taking that into consideration, the PS3 is obviously the more popular console (Not that popularity or sales=/=quality. Just look at Twilight or Justin Bieber).

"all games like gta, call of duty, dead space, crysis 2 and all sport and fighting games have sold way way more on the xbox 360."

For the most part, yes, but you forget that PS3 owners have more choices each year (for the most part) than the 360 in terms of high profile releases, so it's logical that support for all of them would be spread more thinly than the 360's sales numbers. Last year, 360 owners pretty much only had Gears 3 and Forza 4 to worry about along with the multiplats while PS3 owners had MLB 2011: The Show, Resistance 3, Infamous 2, Killzone 3, LittleBigPlanet 2, Uncharted 3, and the multiplats as well. It also doesn't help that Microsoft has better, more prevalent marketing.

"also sony said that all exclusives for ps3 combine together have not sold more than the halo franchise."

Both consoles have exclusives that sell millions. You also forget that Halo is a much older and more extablished franchise compared to practically every single exclusive series on the PS3 (except for Metal Gear Solid and Gran Turismo, both of which have made more money than most 360 exclusives).

"and xbox has exclusives that sell millions like fable, gears of war, alan wake, left 4 dead , forza motorsport which have made more sells than the low low sales of killzone, resistance, infamous and god of war"

Fable, Left 4 Dead, Forza, and Alan Wake on the 360 sold less than any of the Uncharteds, God of War III, Gran Turismo 5, or Metal Gear Solid 4. All of the Forzas and Gears of Wars sold less than Gran Turismo 5. If you really think sales equal quality, then you must think that CoD: MW 3 is a superior game than any of the 360's exclusives because on the 360 alone it destroys everything on the console in terms of sales. Sales are almost entirely because of marketing. That's it. There are very rare exceptions to that rule.
