11. You obviously don't know what a fanboy is
I own a Microsoft Xbox and the 360, a Sony Playstation 2 and a Nintendo Gamecube. I've owned game systems from every manufacturer over the years.

That makes me the EXACT OPPOSITE of a fanboy.

"Oblivion looks much better on the PS3"

It was only released a couple of days ago and I'm betting you haven't seen it on the PS3 yet. Except for many the non-game CGI advertisements from Sony.

"Blu-ray is winning the format war"


Sales are so close that no one is winning the format war. And with manufacturers coming out with dual format DVD players, there will be a market for both HD and Blu-ray.

"Devil May Cry 4"
Nope, coming to the 360.

"Final Fantasy Xlll"
Nope, coming to the 360.

So are several of the other games on your list.

Something else to consider: Not one PS3 game shows up on the top ten list of games sold. Not since the PS3 was released. The list is controlled by the Wii and the PS2.

You obviously don't follow the game console market so it makes no sense to continue.
