I never realized how much party chat ruined things.
Its not "better".
Obviously if we look at hardware, its not "better" at anything.
Xbox is just the standard console for FPS. It was marketed as one last gen, the 360 had a superior online community, the FPS were developed for the 360 and ported over to the PS3, and it got DLC releases first.
That was last generation though. This gen has a clean slate. Aside from Titanfall (for now) and Halo (and possibly gears), there's really nothing that microsoft has over sony as far as FPS' go.
The online communities are neck and neck, and with almost every shooter releasing coming out for both consoles except halo, there's really no "better" system for FPS anymore.
Quite honestly, the best way to play a FPS is on a PC. But thats a big investment.
And party chat is the best thing to ever happen to me. Its one of the biggest things I had to get over when leaving the 360 for PS3 let gen. Rainbow 6 + Party Chat = GOAT
