I have a jtagged 360 that its now collecting dust in my closet and didnt feel any reward for getting an achivement when playing a game like bioshock 2. It felt so uninspiring that no one could see that achivement and that probably my console will break and even my profile wont hold any of that information or achivement. Sure the game is good, but I didnt even finish it because it didnt give me the pleasure of my psn-integration.
I know a lot of people can say, well just go legit on the xbox and you can get the exact same stuff or even more if you buy their gold subscription. But the truth is microsoft is not as loyal as Sony, compare the lifespan of the ps2 vs the xbox1 and youll see what I mean. The xbox is just a money grabber and even their exclusives feel so empty compared to Sony exclusives. I think everyone just feels confortable with one console or another, but facts are facts sony delivers more to their legit users vs miscrosoft IMO.
I think its the integration the psn offers with the games that make you want to buy a game for the ps3 instead of pirating. Knowing that you will get trophys, online support, DLC and other stuff that with a modded 360 you wont get. Trophys and achivements also motivate the player to extend at least an hour or two the game play by trying to get the easy trophys/achivements that you didnt get on your first run.
