I just recently go back into console gaming after getting tired of constantly booting into Windows on my mac pro to play one or two games. So I decided to get a dedicated gaming system. I chose the PS3 over the X360 for 2 main reasons: 1. I've always owned PlayStation (PS1 and PS2) and I'm used to the controllers they've always used. 2. I didn't wanna buy something that was made by Microsoft (because I'm a Mac guy). I know this one is weird but I couldn't stand the thought of having a Mac computer and a Microsoft game system. At least when I had Windows, I was still using my trusty Mac to do it. 3. I didn't find this out until after I bought the PS3, but I didn't realize you have to pay for internet access on the X360... that's another downside. So far I'm liking my PS3, but you really need to get the PS3 Exclusives to really enjoy the system. The cross platform games almost always have framerate issues on the PS3... not because the PS3 isn't powerful, it's because the developers have a harder time working with the PS3. The X360 is more like a computer so the translation is easier... and it uses Direct X. So my question is... do Mac users generally tend to go for Sony PlayStation because of the whole Microsoft thing?
