360 rocks
16kadams

Con

C1: Online

Xbox on line costs 50$ per year, when you get the Xbox. [1] It is a well known fact people have to pay 50$ per year for Xbox live. Now why is this a problem? It makes the Xbox cost more in the long run, which is a major downside.

C2: Cost

Xbox 199-229$ in purchase cost. [2] PS3 299$ purchase cost. [3]

---> The point here is the purchase costs are similar, very similar.
---> As you have to pay for Xbox live it eventually costs more then the PS3 as your paying 50$ every month.
---> That means Xbox costs more

C3: Blue Ray

The Ps3 is the ONLY game console with blue ray built in with it. [4] Yes the only one. This is a major downside as now the Xbox cannot obtain the same good graphic quality, therefore a major downside to the Xbox.

C4: PS3 = more reliable

"A new study on game console reliability confirms the popular attitude that Microsoft's Xbox 360 is the least reliable of the current crop of set top systems. " [5]

"42% of all [Xbox] owners have suffered hardware failure. Frankly, it’s unacceptable. Old topic I know but this reminds us what happens when competitors rush to complete we end up suffering. The survey also found that:
PS3 failures came to 8%
Wii failures came to 1%" [6]

This is the worst part of the 360.

---> Xbox costs more, is unreliable, doesn't have as good graphics as the PS3 as it doesn't have blueray, and the PS3 is therefore better. VOTE CON

360 has the kienet and it is better than the ps3 move.we may not have blue ray but 4 ps3 once u make up your gamertag u can change it but xbox u can the first is free and the second time for 800 microsort points. also xbox has more games than the ps3. also most gamers prefer the xbox. look at http://en.kioskea.net... . pus we have the most memory 320gb.we may not have blue ray but we have HD. also psn had a huge problem recently.

Con

My opponent does not justify the kinect.

My opponents cost refutation is poor as that only covers 2 years. Then the costs begin to rise...

Having more games isn't as much of an upside then having problems as xbox is unreliable. The argument here is on exclusive games, and the PS3 has exclusive games too. My opponent has no stats on this either.
http://us.playstation.com...

"37% are considering purchasing a PlayStation 3 over the next 12 months, with Xbox 360 close behind with 34%"
http://www.1up.com...
This shows gamers are pretty tied on the issue. The PS3 has a major lead with older gamers.
http://www.vg247.com...

My opponents memory claim is wrong. We too have the 320 gig system too.
http://en.wikipedia.org...

Also blue ray increases graphics and it allows blue ray discs. This mean Xbox is at a disadvantage. PS goes blue ray and normal disks, Xbox can't.

My opponents arguments are wrong. Arguments he dropped:

Reliability
cost

lots of people like Xbox360
16kadams

Con

My opponent has dropped all of my arguments last round, therefore 100% of my case stands.

X box actually has high negative ratings among people who own them.
http://www.customerservicescoreboard.com...
As your claim is not backed up with stats mine is more reliable.

Arguments: He dropped my case
sources: Obviously me...
conduct: =
S/G: I used words not solely text language

resolution negated.

Reasons for voting decision: 16kadams case was easy to read and understand. he made more arguments and they were convincing. i usually don't vote on grammar but since ras2000 used improper spelling I voted for 16k'. 16k was the only one who used sources. :)
