Well, good choice, man.

Right now I'm not even going to bother with the Xbox360 version of a PC game.

I've had COD3 scratched twice, while my other games have been fine for some reason. They already told me if it happens again I'll have to pay 20USD for a replacement.

I've also heard that the reason they are delaying the returns is because they have a huge backlog of repairs to do, plus they are adding new drives and more cooling to the console.

Dunno why people are ignoring some of the really good games on the PS3. It's like they're ignored just to make it easier to put the PS3/Sony down.

I dunno about anyone else but I'm happy with my PS3 and its games. I'm currently playing Ridge Racer, Tekken, Motorstorm, Resistance and Ninja Gaiden Sigma. I'm aware it doesn't have as many as the 360 but it's not actually been out in the UK for that long.

I'm gonna be one happy bunny when the real stuff is released like heavenly sword, DMC4, MGS4, FFvXIII, LBP, Killzone 2, Lair and Uncharted. *gets warm fuzzy feeling in tummy*

Let alone the third party games that end up on that console.

I also don't have to deal with the incessant noise from the Xbox 360, nor the hardware failures or scratched disks. I also didn't have to pay extra for a crummy HD-DVD addon.

In case you're wondering, I didn't pay 599, I paid 485 for the 20GB version with an extra controller. I also can upgrade my hard drive cheaply without having to pay 150+ for 120GB. Once they get their huge catalog online, it'll be worth upgrading that drive.

Like I've said before, it all comes down to the games, not necessarily the features. The XBOX 360 has a way better library of games and from the looks of things, the PS3 won't have any exclusive games that would persuade me to buy a PS3, besides the Blu-Ray library.

Just a bit of advice, don't buy a console because "The PS2 was the best console evar! The PS3 must be ev3n b3tt3r!!!111" or "just for Blu-Ray", look at the games and go by that. It's the only reason I went with the 360 over the PS3.

Three out of the nine games you mentioned are out. If I were you I wouldn't start cheering for game titles that haven't even been released yet. AFAIK the real big guns (MGS4 and Killzone2) are more then 6 months away.

I'm in a curious position. I want the PS3. So much looks fascinating about the device. Bluray, upscaling, some of the stuff on PSN, that Little Big Planet game or whatever its called.

But it really, honestly, just has no games that aren't on the 360, which I also own. I guess there is Resistance, but meh. I guess I'm just waiting for MGS4 or FFXIII to drop. Or whatever the ICO/Shadow of the Colossus team is working on.
There will be some nice exclusives in addition to the two you mentioned:
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Heavenly Sword
Killzone 2
Warhawk
Gran Turismo 5
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
Lair
SOCOM: Confrontation
Haze (timed exclusive)
Coded Arms Assault

Nope, instead you had to pay extra right off the bat for a crummier Blu-ray Disc drive instead of being offered the choice to save $200.

Only 2 or 3 titles were mentioned by nopp0x00, but he did not organize them in an easy to read format.

Anyways, more games announced in the PlayStation Premiere:
