only you would go and find the specs to the ps3 jubs. anyway the ps3 has always had a free online part, only the 360 has made it where you have to pay to get the best of everything. and although i would agree that xbl is probably better right now than the psn, i would give props to sony because they have made vast improvements to their network, sure it has taken some time but remember that xbl has been around since the original xbox, so of course it should be better.
there isnt any built in battery in the ps3, what you are thinking of was the laptop incident that happened a couple of years ago. and yes that was bad on sony's part, but that is a different division of sony, not related to the gaming section.
wait, now your talking about microsoft in general. yes they have created many horrible operating systems, but that does not have to deal with the 360. the main problem with the 360 is the "red rings of death" due to a poor design in the motherboard that melts when it gets too hot.
with the release of the ps3 slim, i now think sony is in prime position to make a major move against microsoft in the gaming world. sure it probably took to long for sony to realize some of the problems they have made, but at least they are trying.
half of your arguments are null and void, jubs and therefore you lose this debate! ^>^
