perhaps the PS3 can last longer than the 360 but it still suffers from the same hardware failure patterns as the 360 (ex: YLOD as the RROD). the blue-ray laser has a short lifetime span (2 yrs or less) but the 360 dvd drive can be swapped out for a different version given that the dvd-drive key is present.
i have a hunch that the PS3 will draw in more developers to make games for it since it finally has become a more affordable console to buy. maybe we'll see more games made for it in 2010. the 360 still dominates in the game library.
i just want to be able to install PS3 games onto the hdd drive directly from a game.
