20.) Audio

The PS3 via HDMI supports Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio, among many other audio codecs. The PS3 slim now offers these codecs to be bitstreamed to your receiver, rather than being decoded to Linear PCM.  The result is lossless HD audio at its finest.

21.) Installs

Many PS3 owners complain about these mandatory installs. However they should be rejoicing. Perfect example is Resident Evil 5, which was release for both major consoles.

On the PSN side of things, we have games like the zen-inducing Flower, the comedic take on classic capture-the-flag gameplay, Fat Princess, and the classic-brick breaking twist of Sidhe’s Shatter.

Unlike other consoles that have nearly maxed out their potential. Sony is just starting to get into its groove this generation. With a future-proof console, and a vast line-up of exclusives on the way, the PS3 has the brightest future out of any of the 3 consoles.
