    SO Ive been without our 360 for a week now. Every day I leave work thinking how I want to play a certain game and then remember that its for the Xbox. But during this time, Ive gotten closer to my PS3. So far Im almost through with TheDarkness, won my first match on Rainbow Six Vegas, bought and played Blacksite Area 51, bought Turok, sent out some more friend requests and let my console participate some more in the Folding home project. All in all Ive come to appreciate the PS3 more because it reminds me of games before achievement points.

    You would know achievements aren't necessary if you have CoD 4. :p

    The same thing happened to me with the 360. I grew a bond with it and Mass Effect. Been playing it a lot more lately, though some things happened on Friday that made me fear Red Ring.

    I hope to get a PS3 before the end of the year but if it’s a multi-platform game I couldn’t imagine getting the PS3 version over the 360 because of those wonderful achievements.

    I never have, and never will pay attention to the achievements. I couldn't care less.

    Woohoo!! I got 250 pts because I was able to tolerate the incredibly horrible and easy TMNT for 20 minutes before taking it back to Blockbuster. I'm badass!!

    Only achievement whores do that.

    I love achievements. It makes me feel like I accomplished something. Plus, when my friends tell me I haven't beat a certain song on Guitar Hero on Expert, the look at my achievements, and I can say, "Eat it bitch.".

    My PS3 gets love for the mass amount of PS2 games I passed over and remote play. Future exclusives will give it some much needed love (and Warhawk when my replacement console arrives soon).

    Achievements push me to finish a game. During the PS2/Xbox era I finished maybe 5 games out of the hundreds I owned. Games on my 360 are probably close to 85% with intentions of finishing the ones I haven't. It gives me a goal outside of seeing the ending and a reward for sticking with some crappy games (Transformers).

    Any multiplatform games I will always get for the 360 for small negligable rewards for my time.
