Over the weekend, we picked up a copy of Beautiful Katamari at a garage sale, which is an XBox 360 exclusive. Problem is, we don’t have an XBox 360. I’m trying to decide if it’s worth going out and buying a new one or maybe picking up an older model cheap and trying to upgrade it. It seems like most, though by no means all, of the games I’m interested in playing are either crossplatform or PS3 exclusive. I’ve looked at the list of exclusives on Wikipedia (we’ll exclude the Kinect games from consideration for now) and I’m not sure if there’s anything I’d actually want. I’m not much of one for FPSes, so that takes out Halo as an automatic reason. I’d be more interested in RPGs of various types, third-person shooters are okay, and I think I own more platformers than any other genre. However, I don’t mean to automatically exclude anything from consideration.
For that matter, how is XBox Live? Different enough from the offerings on the PS3 to consider an XBox for that as well?
