Ability to delete game and application save data

I don't give a crap about the branding, I just go with personal experience. And with that, the 360 absolutely crushed the PS3 when it came to value for ME.
So why wouldn't I think MS would just improve on that value? Well, so far they have. When more games start coming out, we'll know for sure. It's just too early to tell right now.
And like I keep repeating, I'm a gaming enthusiast, I have all of it, and I want all of it to succeed because that's what we need for the experience to keep improving.

That is fine... but also highly individual.
My case was kind of the same, but opposite. I played Halo 1 and 2 on PC and wasn't too interested in continuing, for some reason. Not that I didn't like Halo, I just didn't like it enough to influence my console choice.
I also played Gears on PC. At the time I was hopeful sequels will come to PC; this is probably the only franchise I regret not playing more.
Eventually, I wanted console to play games other than PC strongholds - 3rd person action adventures, platforms, driving. I found PS3 offering more on that front, and Blu-ray was nice addition. I swapped consoles with friend for some time, tried Halos, Forza, Fable... and never regretted my choice.
