Five reasons to keep your Xbox 360 — and five reasons to ditch it for a PS3 Slim


Whether you’re a fanatical Sony fanboy or a staunch Xbox 360 loyalist, one thing is impossible to deny: the re-priced, redesigned PlayStation 3 is a big deal. Suddenly, the world’s most prohibitively expensive console has become a lot more affordable; just 50 clams more than the Xbox 360 Elite to be exact. The Sony faithful are already rattling their sabres and declaring the console war won — and if last week’s PS3 sales are anything to go by, they may actually have a point. One thing's for sure; if you’re an Xbox 360 owner, the question “should I make the switch?” has never been more relevant.

In an ideal world, everyone would own a PS3 Slim and an Xbox 360 — thus having the best of both worlds. Since we’re fantasising, you might as well throw in a Nintendo DSi, iPod Touch, PSP Go and Nintendo Wii (y'know, for the girlfriend). Unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world. A lot of us can only afford one console per generation — if we want something new, we have to trade in our current machine. Which brings us back to the original question: should Xbox 360 owners make the switch?

If you're still umming-and-ahhing, here are five compelling reasons to keep your Xbox 360 — and five reasons to ditch it for a PS3 Slim. After perusing the following slides, you should be able to make up your own mind!
