I gotta say WTF to the top 5.
That is, WTF is up with your extreme pro-xbox/anti-ps3 fanboyism? The PS3 used to be sort of a fail, sure. But I seriously can't see what the fuck you're complaining about anymore.
The price has dropped, a lot.
There are some really great games, both exclusive and non-exclusive, and the future line-up is looking better and better. There used to be no games for the PS3, but while this was true in the past, it's not anymore. And for your information, Square hasn't "left" Sony. The only thing that's happened is that they decided to release FFXIII for both systems. FFXIII VS is still PS3 exclusive.
And what is up with the load time argument? I've never had to wait half an hour to play a PS3 game. Never even minutes. This must have been an issue with the early PS3s, or you're just making shit up.
Now, you're also complaining about the fact that they have removed features from the Slim. Yeah, and that also removed 100 bucks from the price tag. It's no longer compatible with PS2 games, but seriously, who doesn't already own a PS2? The PS1 compatibility remains through software emulation. The old model had four USB ports while the Slim only has two, but this is easily fixed by plugging in a USB hub with external power supply.
All of this being said, the PS3 has gone from crap to goodness, and you just refuse to see it. I'm just so freaking tired of the constant whining about this console. And don't even start saying that you criticized the xbox too in this top 5. To criticize the red ring of death is not to criticize an entire system. It's to simply acknowledge that yes, water is wet.
I am not going fayboy out, but I feel TGH should really be fair to all the consoles. I would like to see a less bias look at the PS3, hell there is a Xbox360 podcast that I was listening to that talked about the improvements Sony has made and looks forward to the future of the PS3.
I am just tired of feeling like I am watching The Microsoft Heroes and it makes me sad.
