For those without a basic reading skill, bolded to help;

Nim: "Microsoft... are such an enthusiastic proponent of DLC, tells me something about that company"
Jim: "Sony charge for items for the Home thing, they charge for a video podcast, they charge for tiny texture+map packs for LBP..."
Adam: "So yeah, really seems like you're picking at the crumbs now"

What can we learn from the above?
One of the reasons Nim doesn't like Microsoft is because they offer DLC, something that Sony also charge for. To say it doesn't "apply to Nim" whilst he lists it as an annoyance is a bit, well, surely you understand by now.

MS and Sony both charge for content, can we get over it now please?

IMO DLC isn't inherently bad, as long as developers don't intentionally gimp a game just to "fix it" with DLC, or is simply cheats like EA (buy this to give your FIFA player maximum speed)

Nim already bought a PS3, there's not much point in continuing the console war now. He made a wise choice

Yup, go head and ignore me Adam. Seems I only exit in your world when you have something nasty to say to me. Don't pay any attention to when I'm nice to you.

I feel like the DLC thing has been blown up a bit too much. It was a tiny point inside a slightly larger tiny point (paying extra for DLC, batteries, online, etc) inside another point (the Xbox360's cheaper price advantage), which all turned out to be quite insignificant in the end. But here's my response anyway:

What I said was that Microsoft seem to have really taken a shine to this DLC thing, more than Sony. Thanks for emboldening that section, but you seem to have missed it yourself Both companies offer DLC, but I feel that MS is slightly more enthusiastic about using it when I hear about them charging for trivial things like themes and letting you dress up your avatar for 400 points. On the other hand, Sony are guilty of Home, which is hardly a plus for them. I daresay that if Sony weren't the underdog at the moment, we'd be paying for their online service too.

So yeah, we bought the PS3. So far I'm really enjoying it, but I'd probably say that about either console at first. I love the XMB interface. It feels like I've bought a proper multimedia centre than just a games machine. Little Big Planet had me laughing out loud. What I don't like is its controller - it feels quite light and a little small.

I really like the controller It's pretty much the same as the PS2 anyway- Id rather have a light controller than heavy or even medium weight, no matter how heavy it is my wrists would get tired after a few hours anyway, so the lighter the better I guess?

Just buy the keypad attachment Makes it twice the size and heavier And ofc you can type faster to friends in LBP

The PS3 controller is pretty light, which I don't like for some reason - though I have a Sixaxis, not sure if the Dualshock is any different. If you have a USB keyboard don't bother buying the keypad accessory - you can just plug in your keyboard and use that in LittleBigPlanet, XMB and other games too.

Regarding the whole DLC debate - it's not just Microsoft and Sony who offer it. For example, Sony are not the ones who develop and sell LBP DLC. Sure they get a bit of the money because they offer it on their store, but it's all content developed by Media Molecule and offered at a very reasonable price.

If it wasn't for DLC I probably wouldn't have played LBP for about a year. The whole buying themes/avatar clothes is silly in my opinion though - but people do it. PS Home has made a lot of money if my memory serves me right, and I'm sure Microsoft have sold a lot of avatar stuff as well. They're sort of impulse buys really.

At the end of the day they don't force you to buy this stuff - it's additional content. The prices for DLC on PS3 are very reasonable - except for the Home stuff in my opinion.

The lightness and lack of how much the controller fills my hand, are a couple reasons I don't like the sixaxis or the dualshocks anymore. I kind of fell in love with the 360 controller almost immediately. Felt almost perfect as soon as I started using it.

I've never used a free-standing PS3 controller, sadly. But I have held one and used the 360 controller and PS2 controllers fairly extensively. They are both fairly ergonomic, but I would argue in favor of the 360's design, since the Dualshock controller doesn't quite fit perfectly. It's such a minor issue though, that I probably wouldn't give it much weight if I were deciding between the two consoles.

I still think the Gamecube controller is the best and most comfortable controller in existence.

The button layout on the GameCube controller is pretty weird IMO.

I like both the PS3 and 360 controllers, except for the useless D-pad on the 360 controller

Yes, I agree moulded to the hands so nicely.
