    GameSpot's study shows that the majority of the population of all adult gamers 13 and older who own a PS3 only spend around 50% of their PS3 usage time playing games. Anyone else shocked that a system primarily created and designed for gaming is being used almost primarily for non-gaming?

    My boss has a PS3 to play games, but also for its blu-ray capabilities...

    That's my guess. But still, a dedicated gaming system and over half the time people use it for Facebook and Blu-Rays.

    I'm thinking of a game system but don't know which w/be better. PS3 or Xbox.
    I understand you can play online for free w/PS3 but Xbox charges?

    Wii. It has a lot of innovative niche games, plus first-party Nintendo games, which are pretty much always good.

    PS3/360 have better graphics, but the games are generally worse.

    Have both PS3 and Xbox and honestly, I only use the PS3 for Blu-ray.

    Everything else i switch between PC and Xbox.
