Sony Playstation 3 versus the Microshat Xbroke 360

Ahh, the rich sweetness of another flame, another chance to just totally bitch at the world.

Or maybe to myself.

Anywho, let's get this show on the road! It's time for Segin's Blog of Rantings and Ravings!

Today, I slander the Microsoft XBox 360.

Now, the first thing you think about when you buy a new game system is "Does it have any good games out for it?", not "Will it catch my house on fire?". But that second question is what you are forced to ask yourself with the overheating Xbox 360. Of course, Microsoft still cannot make a decent product, and now our country is littered with game consoles whose poor design have costs many innocent (or maybe not) Americans their lives, or at least their houses, err, I mean, their trailers. Anyways, you're asking me, "Well, I'm going to go get the PlayStation 3! Hah!", and my reply to that is "Good choice.". Why? Because of 2 main reasons that stick out like an ugly, old, woman in a rave club: Number 1: Backwards compatability.
The Playstation 3 owners everywhere can enjoy all the classics fom the Playstation 2 and old Playstation right on their PS3, and even in true hi-definition (old PS1 games may be very pixelated). The number two reason is that the PS3 will ship from the factory with Linux preinstalled. Folks, this is not a rumor. It's straight from the horse's mouth (Sony). With the PS3, you will be able to enjoy many games that current Linux users enjoy, such as Quake 3, DOOM, Abuse, Enemy Terroritory, and some others. You can use console emulation programs such as VisualBoyAdvance, ZSNES, Snes9x, Mupen64, and iNES, allowing you to play virtually any game ever made on your Playstation 3. This feature is already enjoyed by owners of modded original Xboxes, but this is without mods, using programs that are designed to run on the PS3, because the PS3 runs Linux! And what of the XBox 360? Well, at least it makes a good toaster oven.
