The 360 only has a 6% failure rate over the PS3
And if your Fat PS3 (like one of the PS2 compatible ones) dies then your screwed as Sony won't repair it due to Warranty, and good luck finding one online that doesn't cost a fortune. Microsoft built a PC that hooks up to your TV. They didn't try to force another type of proprietary media format on anyone like Sony has been trying to do since the mini-cd days with ever single device they have put to market.

Microsoft doesn't repair systems out of warranty for free either and they were forced to extend warranties only due to the RROD. The failure rate link seems completely inaccurate. The Xbox 360 is not a PC. It doesn't support most PC-like functionality nor most PC peripherals.

And Microsoft has been attacked in the past, but isn't STUPID enough to leave itself open to what happened to Sony.

I don't know, looking at the number of zero day fixes every month for my users windows installs I'd say yes it is. Live has been hacked before anyway, just not in the same manner. Videogame companies are not security companies, Sony learned their lesson the hard way, no one said the PS3 is perfect.
