Xbox vs. Sony

Posted by: Cliff Edwards on May 13, 2005

OK, so now we know pretty much what Xbox 360 will do when we rush to get our mitts on it in November, thanks to Microsoft’s 30-minute infomercial on MTV Thursday night. Now the games really can begin. On Monday, we’ll find out whether Sony’s posturing was all swagger, or if they’re really planning to put a hurt on Microsoft for rushing out a game console early. Word is, Sony hopes to announce that consumer electronics companies and others have pretty much adopted the Blu-Ray high-definition DVD standard, though they will use some codecs from the competitor standard, HD-DVD. If true, that mean that unlike Xbox 360, you could watch high-def movies right from your PlayStation 3. And expect Sony to play up ties to its movie and music studios, versus Microsoft with Cinenow offering yesterday’s movies tomorrow. The big questions: Will Microsoft’s nemesis actually announce a release date, and will it be sooner than everyone thinks?

i dont really see anything special about the xbox 360 i think it sux but not cause of the graphics or anything just cause i like playing different style games. ps3 is what im going for but i believe in the end ill play my ps2 more. devil may cry rules drakengard is king. i love swordfighting games there just awesome. xbox dosnt have much to choose from in my opinion.

xbox 360 is cool, good online options. But really its not worth it to spend around 600$ just to improve a bit of the gaming experience. I have xbox its much better than ps2 (and I say that cause I have it and it sux), but 360 is too similar to xbox in terms of the graphics (the only thing average gamers care about). Anyhow I think that ps3 is going to be much better since its more expensive, hehehe, wasn't that the case for every single gaming system that ever cameout? plz don't argue guys. But another gaming system in the market as an option never hurts. :D

The Xbox 360 has MUCH better graphics power than the xbox, 8 times over.

You people don't seem to understand that the people who made the release games didnt know EXACTLY how far they were willing to push the system, and how hard could they.

Notice how Halo 2 came out deep into the Xbox's life, its the GAME that holds the graphics, the Xbox 360 just says "Hey well I'm able to support those kind of graphics, watch this!"

It doesn't matter that X360 has better graphics than Xbox, it's how it holds up to PS3's that counts(atleast in that area).

Comparing two different generations doesn't make sense.

X360 could easily become the next PS2, for the fact that although it may not match up with sheer power, it will have a place in our homes far before the competition, especially with lots of developer support.

On the other hand, PS3 has much more power- a processor with that many cores? It's unheard of to the average console or even PC gamer. Seeing tech demos as flashy as we've seen at e3 with a prototype system and some without use of it's GPU!
The fact holds up that the games and features will determine how they'll hold up to eachother, it depends on how developers utilize the consoles.

Developers could go with MS, because for one- it's here now, and try to see what they could bust out with it, or they could end up with Sony, hoping other's are willing to wait and do the same, and we would have dazzling graphics(something that could hold up to a PC's atleast at lauch!), true-to-life AI engines, physics for the slightest bit of debris in an explosion, and far more space.

PS3 would easily take the cake if it were released now, but the fact of the day is, when we're hanging out with our boys playing a 360, jealousy could catch up to us at any day within the 7-10 months before PS3 comes.

there is no way we will know which system is truely better until the ps3 comes out

p.s. by the way so far both systems look good

XBOX 360 & PS3 suck! The graphics on a PC with a 3 year old Gforce card are better then both. There is no benefit to buying a console, they are watered down computers with no control over performance. There isn't one reason a console is better.

are you kidding me alkawi? the 360 is too similar to the xbox graphically? i mean, are you high or something?

The Ps3 kicks The Xbox 360s ass the Ps3 has way better graphics and more games Nintendo revolution aint that bad either but it still dosent compete with Ps3 i saw a game being played on each of them and Ps3 kill them all im defintly gonna wait and get Ps3

Tyler

December 5, 2005 4:11 AM

Ps2 is way better than Xbox 1 the graphics are better than Xbox and the games

December 5, 2005 6:59 AM

ps3 will nail the 360. I mean its obvious that sony has so many more products. Microsoft may have a lot of technology but their technology is comps. Sony on the other hand has a lot of diffrent products. So if you think about it sony has more knowledge.so no matter how hard microsoft tries they cant stand up to sony. I will admit that both ps3 and 360 are goin to be great systems but of course the ps3 will be better.On some other blog ive seen the 360 has more games right now...key word NOW...but when ps3 comes out there will be so many games for ps3 you wouldnt believe it. Any xbox fanboys that have read this get it through your head ps3 will be better and will always be better than 360 so ive said my point.

Tyler

December 5, 2005 7:15 AM

Playstation 3 looks way better than any other system ive saw the Xbox 360 looks exatly like Xbox 1 and nintendo is to kiddey The Ps3 looks so much better than Xbox 360 or Nintendo revolution the price may be more but its worth it to have unlike that piece of crap Xbox 360 Defintly wait until the real thing comes the Ps3 the graphics are so freakin real alot of people wouid mistake it for real you got my point get the real deal

December 5, 2005 8:48 PM

I find it amusing that anyone here can say with any sincerity what the PS3 looks like. Tech demos have not been indicative of the subseqent products, because hardware changes and developers underuse the machines once they're trying to make games on a budget and a deadline.

I also find it amusing that most of the fanboys can't properly comlpete sentences because they're so excited.

So, on to the particulars.

1) The XBox 360 looks good on its own merits. None of the games are pushing the envelope yet, but that's an unrealistic expectation. The machine is barely out.

2) Sony has plenty of time to do what they think they need to, but with all the consumer bad will towards Sony right now thanks to the DRM problems, even if they make a great console it could be received badly. Sure, the core fans won't stray, but the average soccer mom might go Microsoft this time.

3) PC gaming is fantastic looking, but many people aren't crazed performance freaks and they just want to play, not spend all their time tweaking.
I'd take half an hour of Super Monkey Ball on Gamecube over half an hour of downloading drivers and overclocking my machine until it stops working. (And I'm not that good at SMB.)

4) Don't discount anyone until the games are out. It is about the games, right?

Xbox fanboys. I have a question. Do u really like the xbox360. Do u have any sense to wait for the ps3.Do u have any clue how better the ps3 will be. Somebody responde.

buddha

December 11, 2005 7:06 PM

xbox 360 and ps3 are great consoles, PC is also good, but a good pc costs about $1000.....anyways, all i see from all of your comments is the GRAPHICS! graphics arent the only thing that counts.. for you ps3 fans, you will probably say that ps3 will have more games, which is true... on the other hand, the majority of the games will SUCK!!! so it does not matter of the console, it's all about the game... and depending on the player, each person would like a different kind of game. so thats my point

the console isnt important, the GAME IS!

big bad blair

December 13, 2005 12:14 AM

Why is there so many ps3 fanboys posting here, why are you guys getting so worked up? you sound like a bunch of kids at recess. Anyways, heres how i take the whole thing, first of all both systems processors are great. It is true that the ps3 processor has more power, but it does not have as much memory as the 360's. All in all, when they are running next to each other the graphical difference will be so miniscule that you would not even notice it. Secondly, Xboxs lineup of games is allright, their release titles were ok, cod2 was awsome, but they could have done with more selection. Microsoft recruited some pretty interesting and highly valuable developers this time around, including sonys long time goldmine Square Enix. Sony might not have the game selection this time around, its processors and development tools are complex and could limit what they can do in the near future, xbox however has a revolutionary development interface which makes it an ease to programme for, this could be the edge that cuts sonys fading dynasty into the pit in which lies dreamcast and saturn!!!! And all you ps3 fanboys who are using the previews they seen at e3 as a platform for argument, know this. Those shots are CGI!!!! cgi dammit, not gameplay. Realtime means different things to different people. Get your info right before you argue!!!!!!!!!

December 15, 2005 11:41 AM

come on hands down ps3 will kick xbox360 rear. the only reason they launch the system alot earlier then sony did was so they could try to get a leep on sales. which will not work because ps3 will actually have ps3 graphics not like xbox360 which has the first consoles graphics and a really bad dvd player.

Mahoo

December 20, 2005 12:58 AM

The bottom line is - Xbox 360 and PS3 are both great in their own ways. PS3 may have the upper hand with the slightly more powerful chips and variety of games (half of which a toddler would reject), but Xbox 360 makes up for it in other ways.

It has been said that you can buy a Linux OS on a HD for the Xbox 360 - which may not seem like much to the average gamer, bt there are a lot of others out there who are dying to use the pure processing power of one of these systems as a powerful PC. Also, Xbox 360 only releases games that are worthy to be played - Anyone heard of SHIFTERS on PS2 - WORST GAME EVER!!!

Also, the Xbox 360 doesn't have a BAD DVD player, you're only saying that in comparison to the Blu-ray medium the PS3 will use - BIG WHOOP - In the near future there is no need for that much disk space and by the time PS3 is released, the Blu-ray drive will probably only be running at 1x speed.

In conclusion, it depends what you want - A dedicated gaming console (PS3) or a maluable system that performs comparitively to the competition. My opinion, the small drop of performance power in the Xbox 360 is worth the added benefits of a Linux OS, and hassle free shopping for kids, where you know you will pick a quality game instead of RC Revenge Pro.

Well, buy American Made. Man you all keep wanting this foreign stuff (cars, tvs, game consoles). Well frankly your just pissing away your future here in the US. Now, I'm sure Microsoft does plenty of outsourcing to other countries, but the final dollar goes to Bill, whos a frickin American. So go ahead and buy your foreign made crap. However, your great grandfather or grandfather would be pretty saddened by your decision.

PS3 is by far the best console to date. It will wipe the floor with XBOX 360 and Nintendo Revolution. Sony has invested millions of dollars into small gaming companies so that they will make thier games exclusive for PS3. So don't be suprised when almost all the good games are for the PS3. Also the PS3, on paper, is 2x more powerfull than the XBOX 360. The games will look crystal clear and with Blue-Ray disks, when DVD format dies, it will still hold up its own.

sepheroth

December 22, 2005 7:20 PM

dude...........everyone knows that the ps3 is gonna be better than the 360. Its gonna have better graphics, games, and etc. Also when a remake of FF7 comes out its gonna kill Halo and ony other game for the x-box

whocares

December 23, 2005 6:39 PM

The graphics really dont matter in an rpg game(ff7) but they do in a shooting and fighting game.
and if any grahics get any better then xbox 360 or ps3 graphics then it will look way too real. it all depends on the 3d modeler of the game.

btw the first halo 2 tralier(the one where u see the brutes) has better graphics then halo 2. im a halo fan but halo2 wasnt all that good, halo was better.

blue ray dvd doesnt matter because if u can afford a ps3 or an xbox 360 u can afford a dvd player.

xbox360 has more memory but i havent even filled a quarter of my xbox's memory, so thats not gonna be a problem.

ps2 does suck!!! but ps3 is gonna be kool, so will xbox360.

Smoothers

December 24, 2005 9:34 PM

well,to tell you the truth ps2 well it sucks really you all ps2 lovers stop it xbox smoked ps2 hands down 360 will be king ok for one well did you forget xbox live! i mean ps2 online sucked BAD!!! i'v played ps of years since it came out im tied of those damn graphics we are in 2005 going on to 2006 damnit i want something NEW!!!!!! so get over it playstation will always SUCK!!! get over IT!!!

December 27, 2005 2:08 PM

ps3 will be better. Xbox may have beat ps2, but its diffrent now. Why do you think ps3 is taking longer to come out. ps3 will be way better than 360. I have 360 and it isnt as good as i thought. Its just like xbox no difference at all. I would only buy 360 for $200 thats all

Emoney

December 27, 2005 2:17 PM

Why do u think ps3 is comin out so much later than 360. ps3 is going to be 3x better than 360. i played 360 and its not a big deal. its just like xbox. people want something difrent. game king is right ps3 is the best

dude

December 28, 2005 2:07 AM

ok ok ok every knows that ps3 IS BETTER and i've heard it could do this and it could do that.i just think that xbox 360 is a good console and that micro soft is trying to repair what has caused the freezes so i would go for xbox for many reasons

( i like the style too)

December 29, 2005 3:14 PM

i played the xbox 360 in a game shop the other day and i thought that the graphics were as good as a decent ps2 game. it is nothing special, they have apparently put all their effort into online gaming, when the majority of people cant go online with their consoles. i think the actual console looks bad as well. i admit that i mainly focus on graphics, but isnt that the most important thing?
nerds say, "oh gameplay is the most important feature, but any console can handle it.
and the guy who likes nintendo should soon realise that it completely sucks and has the most pathetic and childish games ever on a console. oh and did i say that it is completely crap.

December 30, 2005 9:47 AM

O man, i wasnt even going to comment, and sound like %90 of the people or (fan boys) on this site, but i do have one thing to say. Everybody going on about cell this, graphics that, yeah it does play a role into buying games for me, but it mostly comes down to what games are out for that system. But if you guys stop bitching, go out and get a real job, you'll be able to buy both systems. I love my x360, and when it comes out ill buy a PS3. Maybe ill buy 10 depending on the hype and market, and sell 9 of them on ebay for $1000 a pop, to fan-boys, like MOST of you on here.

On another note, a night out with my girl friend is way better than a night home playing games. And i know some of you on here play more than 5 hours a day. go out in reality and get a girl friend, or a job or something. If not, theres only one solution, get lucky like my brother, and get payed very well, developing games.

Sony has people brainwashed. Its funny to me. I respect Xbox 360 it looks great to me and I've owned Sony since day 1. If your not working on PS3 I don't think you can give an opinion on the graphics, at least not yet.All the PS3 footage I saw looked like video I've been playing games since 4 and I know video when I see it. If anyone saw Ghost Recon Xbox 360 Trailer on TV commercial(not actual gameplay footage) it was video and it looked amazing compared to killzone(video it was too scripted). If PS3 don't have playable versions of games what else can they show but video. And as for the the tech demos how much power can it possibly take to render 30 sec games you would have so much space to devote power to specific things without spreading it throughout an entire game.And when that guy used the PS3 controler to add all those ducks, it looked staged like he wasn't even pressing the button for real like he gave a cue or something to add the ducks and just kept pressing the button.This post is to help people think rationally and consider the facts sony doesn't own technology as it advances it's just available. If PS3 was really all of what they showed you they would of let you get your hands on it in some shape or form. Oh and P.S. sorry to say but PS3 is also big and ugly, futuristic, but ugly. It looks like the Oreck air purifier

January 4, 2006 5:47 PM

I have a xbox 360 and it's a great console to play. and going to get better with the max programming abilities for graphics soon to be deveolped by programmers. Having Xbox live, media support, great gamming line up from venders, and a price tag that won't hit you as hard as the sony PS3, it's a better bargan! Besides I don't want to watch dvd's on my console, it burns out the laser, and ruins the life span of the console faster. I have a dvd player to watch movies. As well, I will have a blue ray dvd player to watch HD movies when the time comes to buy one.

I predict, that in the long run, Microsoft will be one step ahead of Sony in the videogame industry. The 360 uses an ATI graphics card and the PS3 uses Nvidia. Everybody knows that ATI overall can produce higher level graphics than Nvidia. Also, those of you commenting on the look of the games now, wait until later! The developers will have more of a sense of what they're working with and can produce much better looking games. (Which is hard to imagine)

gino

January 8, 2006 12:40 AM

What are you people looking at 360 looks way better than PS2 or Xbox PS3 shows video you are gamers just like me but your brainwashed by sony you know what video looks like and you saw it just admit it. Ghost Recon TV commercial(not gameplay if anyone has seen it) is video too for 360 and that in my opinion looked better than any PS3 game video and final fantasy for PS3 looked like PS2 you guys are brainwashed lol its funny to me sony does it everytime and no one says anything. Look at a movie like toy story games still cannot come close to that in gameplay.Who knows what technology is better 1 could be behind the other just because 1 system may be easier to understand at first by developers. I will believe sony is better when I see some footage that isn't so scripted and unviewable from a players standpoint during gameplay(=VIDEO) thats when I'll believe PS3 is better.Also no one talks about also needing a HD set to view PS3 correctly but Xbox heard it all.360 also gives you HD through a computer monitor everyone could have HD for cost of a flat computer monitor. Will Ps3 do that? We don't even know if Blu Ray is going to surpass HD only time can tell how the clock ticks. Also Xbox 360 is fully upgradeable You'll see microsoft selling other enhancements that could give them every advantage. For example upgrade 360 to PS3 specs and beyond, if PS3 is indeed better And remember the only reson Sony is even on top now is because of their name, marketing and games sucked kinda before PS1 came at least for older people just remember how you felt when you first wanted a PS1 and thats what their strategy was. It was simply luck to me they were in the right place at the right time.

January 15, 2006 10:24 PM

you ps3 people are nother but a bunch of graphic whores. if you think the 360 has horrible graphics, check out up coming games like LOST PLANET and FIGHT NIGHT 3 those games look freakin amazing! besides everyone should know how game indutry works, 1st generation games aren't going to be impressive as the 2nd generation games. the 360 will do just fine. they have more support than the XBOX and learned from their mistakes. this is going to be a great year for video games and XBOX, PS3, and REVOLUTION will all have their share of success.

my friend and me are fighting which is better xbox or ps2, my friend says that ps2 is better but has only ps2 has more games to back up what he saids. i think xbox is better because it has halo and halo 2 which is the best game so far, and xbox has xbox live which is easy to find but ps2 online i have never even seen its not even at wal-mart. know xbox 360 has came out and sony has only ps2 to back it up with because ps3 is not comeing out intell spring 2006 maby.

January 20, 2006 7:56 PM

for that guy who said buy american stuff. not to buy the ps3 because its "foreign" is nuts.you are discriminating. is it my fault that sony do a better job than bill gates. is it my fault that foreign companies can make better consoles than bill gates. who cares if its american or not. this is about the best console and not about what country it is made in. everything goes worldwide nowadays.

its like saying only americans should buy xbox consoles and japanese should buy ps consoles

really stupid.

this isnt a patriotic whatever you call it. this is about quality. and sony has always been the #1. the one that came close to that was nintendo.

mike

January 21, 2006 6:23 PM

Both systems look good. It's going to be hard to tell which one is better, but, does that really matter, or does quality high-definition gaming matter? I think quality high-definition gaming matters more, and both systems can provide that. I think it's going to come down to the games, and if that is the case, then, the PS3 has already won.

January 22, 2006 6:48 PM

titles so the graphics might not be as big as a jump as the next gen consoles were from the previous consoles but if u look at halo one of the xbox's first launch title game and was extremely successful but the graphics were good but the multiplayer graphics in halo 1 sucks than 2 year later or so when halo 2 there was a massive difference in graphics not only in the multiplayer but also in the campaign from xbox launch titles and recent xbox games there is a massive jump from in excellence of graphics and i have no doubt that we can expect the xbox 360 to improve by 70 plus percent and blow us away in the next 1 to 2 years from now the xbox produces haven’t discovered what they can really do with the system and what power it is capable of

Jackie

January 23, 2006 9:22 PM

Personally, I think that the x-box 360 and the PS3 are the same. I did research on all of their key factors and good and bad points, and in the end, they both had excellent facts, and a lot of good AND bad points. So for all of you who like one over the other, did you do any research, or are you just guessing at which one you THINK is better??

Saitex

January 24, 2006 12:58 AM

PS2 is just far better then Xbox. Who cares if Xbox has better graphics, hardware etc.....PS2 has da meanest games and it's compact and looks good. Bill Gates mother should have told him not to judge a book by its cover and that he should not judge the PS2 by its hardware capabilities. PS2 is capable of doing far more mystical things using the unique Emotion Engine. P.S. PS3 will be more powerful then Xbox 360, I know why Microsoft even bother making game consoles, just stick with computers and making the next version of Windows Vista.

Alex

February 4, 2006 10:10 PM

Man there is so much arguing going on here. I really think both systems will be great and will definetly both kick the NINTENDO REVOLUTIONS @$$!
I think PS3 might have a better variety of games and graphics but Xbox 360 will probably take the cake in online play. I heard PS3 will be able to hold 7 controllers. I also think it was smart to release the 360 first because people have been itching for a new console.

February 5, 2006 11:24 AM

WTF is with fan-boys!? They always seem to spout nonsensical drivel without knowing the facts! Take it from somone who knows, these arguments will never be resolved.

I own a PS2 and XBOX, as well as all the Nintendo and Sega platforms that have been released, and every system has its plus and minus points. Get over it!


Oh, and ConsoleShakedown, my PC has got a GForce 6600GT, which is just a little better than a three year old card, and I would rather play my games on a console! I think I'll keep my PC for modelling the characters in the games! Jackass!

February 8, 2006 12:20 PM

First of all i would like to ay that the 360 seems to pale in comparison to the ps3. At least in terms of graphics and power. The gameplay, however is far more important than graphics. any hard core gamer would tell you that they would rather play Final Fantasy 3 than play some second rate rpg such as Final Fantasy 11. My point is simple. No one can make a decision on which system is better until you have played both systems. Futher more, i would like to point out that the gameplay will of course improve in both systems as soon as they work out problems that are sure to rise up, just as they had in both companies predecessors.

February 21, 2006 10:40 AM

is arguing goin to get this anywhere??? I dont think so...........the truth is playstation 3 will rule the gameworld no doubt about it so xbox lovers give up. xbox lovers give some good reasons how the xbox 360 is better than ps3. definetly not graphic wise. Maybe memory wise but who cares about memory. the ps3 is also a lot faster than the xbox. I was lookin at some screenshots for the ps3 graphics............omg i thought it was a actual picture from a real life sceen but is was actually the ps3 graphics. Anywho just give good reasons y the xbox 360 is better than the ps3 i bet u wont find many.

You know what i think the Xbox 360 and Ps3 are both gonna leave the Nintendo Revolution in there dust and you know what Ps3 and Xbox 360 are both very highly regarded and Highly anticipated Systems.
Here's what i think there's sales are gonna be about the same becuase alot of people are gonna get both, just like half the world when Xbox came out and everybody foundout that there was a bunch of pretty good games and the graphics where only slightly better but most of all...halo, after that everybody had Two sytems Ps2 and Xbox and the same things gonna happen but Xbox is gonna win marginaly, but it will win becuase of.....Halo 3 and a lot of hardcore Xbox system supporters have been made becuase of Halo considered the best FPS game to ever be made, and best game to be made for Consle sytem's

-And that's the way the cookie crumbles

Oh and by the way both Xbox 360 and ps3 are made by both microsoft and sony as colaborators so you know what it doesn't matter who sells more, cause there both gonna be rich.

ill tell you where nintendo are going wrong,
they are lacking in the advertising department.
Titles like resident evil 4, plus the the other RE titles on the gamecube are probably the best games that i have played on any console graphically and gameplay wise.
i have compared games on xbox to Gamecube and PS2 and i think that the xbox and Ps2 have a larger library of games but still i prefer quality to quantity.
I think that the Nintendo revolution, provided that they put more effort into selling the product as opposed to letting it sell itself will be a console that will blow peoples minds, ZELDA, RESIDENT EVIL, METROID PRIME, STARFOX, and i wonder how many one armed people are just itching to experience what nintendo has to offer,
a one handed controller that enables one to engage in gameplay that will change the way penguins eat fish in China,
NINTENDO.........the way of the future......ps please employ me.

hanky

February 23, 2006 10:34 AM

yeah u have a point there dazzlegrub but will the games be good.

hanky

February 24, 2006 11:03 AM

but still the revolution just wont compare to the 360 and ps3 everyone knows that.Unless u have always been with nintendo. I was only with the nintendo till the dreamcast came out and i heard there makin some new kind of dreamcast.

February 26, 2006 11:59 PM

ps3 doesnt have 8 cores it has 1 3.2ghz cell chip the xbox 360 has a triple core 3.2 ghz power pc chip i have been reading up on both and developers say the 360 is much better if u dont beleive me check the url. The 360 has more bandwidth also. the thing that makes me laugh is game developers said if either had used a pentium 4 or athlon 64 they would be miles ahead so these chips are not as powerfull as you think but they are still are ok for game consoles. ps ps3 fanboys how powerfull do you think a console can be killzone was obviously not realtime

hanky

February 28, 2006 10:26 AM

mak u check again man look up a site about the cell processer that one chip alone has 8 cores dude.

hanky

March 7, 2006 7:40 AM

my bad the cell processer has 7 cores.

Well by the sound of it everybody must have stock in Sony in here already making comments that the PS3 is better probably the same people that hate MS for making a monopoly of the operating system but ask if Sony was the only console out there would they care and everyone says no but wouldn't that make Sony a monopoly the same reason you hate MS so much and when Sony does it they get a free pass. Well obviously most of you people here don't have stock in Sony due to the company struggling for the last three years or so now maybe you should buy some shares that would help out more. This won't affect microsoft at all they still have the operating system on lockdown and the pocket pc and just announced today the new Origami which is a hybrid pc and mobile device and whats so funny is it looks just like the PSP but way bigger and its being made by Samsung. So MS is on top of it and they are not the leaders by accident plus i have an Xbox 360 and and psp and Xbox 1 and Xbox live is amazing and i don't see Sony ever topping MS in mulitmedia ever. Having a blu ray disk might be cool i guess but there are things called a High Definition DVD recorder thats already out like Tvio and other brands that allow you to copy HD tv right onto the drive an watch them whenever you want and you can even burn them so its not that big of a deal to me or impressive i've seen better and for the processor being ulitmately more powerful then the 360 you'd better check again they just announced they will be going to the three core cell processor the same as in the Xbox 360 since IBM was the one that provided the same processor for the 360 i only knew it would be a matter of time before Sony knew they had to do the same to keep production prices to a minimum. Plus offering all this new technology in a new console is dangerous and costly and share holders don't like risky ventures that could cost them money and the company who's shares they own. All in all the Xbox bashing is old and pointless when most people have made up there minds that the PS3 is better even though its not even out yet.

March 13, 2006 2:10 PM

I think the 360 won't even touch the ps3 and any one who thinkis otherwise is fooling themselves. After the ps3 is done with the market I wouldn't be suprised if this was microsoft's last console. As for the revolution, it looks decent but not as good as ps3.

SAKARJA

March 19, 2006 10:59 AM

OK...I think there are more people in this page that thinks the PS3 is going to OWN the XBOX360
. but man it will be such a waste of what evry1 said if the PS3 [isnt] better then the 306. Well... i agree with the people that think that the PS3 is better.

Shinto

March 20, 2006 3:52 AM

If you people weren't reading up on developer blogs the PS3 is a nightmare to work with. why do you think it took them so long to even guestimate When they could possibly release the console. the console hardware design is a mess. they slapped together high end pieces with no forethought in integration. The cell processor is great but it will -NOT- drive the graphics capabilities of the console. it will however make watching hi defintion movies better. but as a GAMING PLATFORM its no different than an XBOX360. hear this. NO BETTER.

the Xbox360 is intended as a gaming platform. compairing the gaming capabilities of both neither are better than the other. the down side to the PS3 is its cost. in Owning the console and for the game developers. MANY game developers have left the PS3 development ring. They all said the same thing. "HARD TO WORK WITH", "TOO EXPENSIVE TO DEVELOPE" yeah considering it costs around 13million Dollars for a Development KIT. compaired to a few thousand dollars for the Xbox360.

This is the dangers of developing for hardware that has not been proven. There are no Coders out there who can code super efficient Cell machine instructions. There are however Plenty of coders for the PowerPC and other ESTABLISHED cpus.

Two examples of why it takes a lot longer to work with on the PS3.

1) Cell cpu is an untested technology
2) Nvidia GPU is a pain in the ass to code for. So much coding involved in writing shaders that does the same thing as the ATI GPU does with a fraction of code (shader(nvd) 3.0 vs shader(ati) 2.0)

so to all the Sony Fan boys over there.. Grow up please. Sony is not the nicest companies out there and they never were.

Also the delay of the PS3 only hurts its future. Since great games are made from developers who mature on the console. by the Time the PS3 is released in November 2006 there will already by Xbox360 titles with unsurpassing graphics and capabilities from the matured X360. While the PS3 will be going through its early stumbling blocks while trying to compete with a completed beast. this is the reality of it all. enough with the Fanboy mentality.

Both consoles are great. but overall the cost and time of release of the PS3 will be its downfall.

Shane

March 27, 2006 11:35 PM

"Xbox fanboys. I have a question. Do u really like the xbox360. Do u have any sense to wait for the ps3.Do u have any clue how better the ps3 will be. Somebody responde."

Ok PS3 fanboy, I'll respond. Ok, here we go.

"Do u really like the xbox360" I think thats a stupid question, of course they do if they are fan boys.

"Do u have any sense to wait for the ps3." Yes, but I'd rather spend $300-$400 on the counsel that I really want then around $600-$800, now, for the counsel that I don't really want.

"Do u have any clue how better the ps3 will be." Umm, if I'm correct, I'm pretty sure the PS3 isn't out yet and I know you havent played it, you probably haven't even tried the 360. If you have even studied the counsels, you would know that both are very similar. Plus, the game developers have said that the 360 is much easier to develop for.

There I have responded, and owned you and all the PS3 fanatics.

hanky

March 28, 2006 10:35 AM

whatever u smart man. Ps3 is better and a lot more people agree. The gay60 is a waste of time. Cant even play the thing 30 minutes and it crashes. Whats the fun in that.

hanky

March 28, 2006 10:39 AM

only reason u xbox losers like the 360 so much is because its the newest system. Microsoft rushed to get it out so the could sell a lot for christmas. Sony is trying to perfect it. Not rush and have the same problem as the 360. think about it SHANE.

Wes

March 28, 2006 11:36 AM

I've been to Target, WalMart and Sears in the past week. Each of them had XBOX 360s for sale (generally Core systems but one place had the Premium) and this indicates to me that supply is catching up with demand.

Give it another month and I'll buy one.

Shane

No the only reason I lkie the 360 is because I like Microsoft and it has the best lineup. Also the first Xbox wiped the floor with the PS2.

I think we should stop arguing about the counsel wars because we all know that the 360 will beat the PS3 in the long run. Just look at the Xbox and the PS2 we all know that the Xbox is better than the PS2 (I can say this because I actually have both, and anyone who doesn't have both can't say that either one is better). And even my die hard Sony friends admit that the Xbox is way better than the PS2.

The Xbox is much better than the PS2 and Microsoft has only made its first counsel 4 or 5 years ago. The next gen systems will have the same result, eventually ending up with Microsoft on top. No matter how hard you deny it you know that the 360 will be better than the PS3. Think about it HANKY. Oh and you should type in full sentences. You just look stupid.

hanky

March 28, 2006 9:55 PM

im sorry shane i no that the xbox 360 is going to be way better than the crappy ps3 and i have faced the fact that you have owned me.

hanky

March 28, 2006 10:53 PM

the ps3 isnt goin to be 600-800$. you crazy or somethin. go to a ps3 sight and not some 360 site where they will tell u **** that isnt true about the ps3.

hanky

March 29, 2006 10:29 AM

whatever shane u will see which one is better when the ps3 comes out. Just watch the ps3 wipe out the 360, just watch.

Shane

March 29, 2006 10:31 AM

i was wrong about everything i love the ps3

hanky

March 29, 2006 4:53 PM

i am was so wrong about the crappy ps3, i have now seen the light and i was so supid, xbox 360 will own the ps3

Shane

March 29, 2006 8:42 PM

Ok, first of all Im guessing that the PS3 is going to be $600 because of the blu ray technology. If you dont live in a hole, you will know that the PS3 will use blu ray. This is expensive. The first consumer blu-ray disc player shown at CES this year was $800 dollars. And that is without any gaming technology. So even if the price of that would drop to an unlikely $200, the PS3 would end up being $600. So this is why I am said it would be $600-$800. Even if the PS3 is released at $500, Sony would face a tremendous loss on each counsel that was sold. If you don't believe me go get a copy of Game Informer. All of the Information I have used in this post is from Game Informer, a reliable source.

Ok, hanky, I think its time we stop arguing about the PS3 and the Xbox 360, both of them have a good chance of coming out on top and we both have our own opinions. We both know that the PS3 and the 360 will wipe out the Revolution.

stealth

March 29, 2006 10:16 PM

well ive always loved xbox. But out of all honesty i dont think the 360 is goin to have a chance against the ps3. Everything these things people are sayin about the ps3 are true exept the fact of it being 500 dollars or more. It isnt true.they where talkin about 300-400$.

Otaku

March 29, 2006 11:28 PM

ya ive heard that is gonna be over 500 dollars to, thats the only reason why i mite not get it....

hanky

March 30, 2006 10:27 AM

yep ur right about that shane. The revolution has no chance. So many diffrent sights show diffrent things. U dont know what to believe.

hanky

March 30, 2006 10:32 AM

that call of the duty for xbox 360 was cool tho ill admit it.

Shane

March 30, 2006 4:53 PM

Ya, your right you don't know what to believe. I can't figure out if Oblivion is going to be on the PS3 or not. I have heard that it will be and it wont be, right now I think it might be but Im not sure.

hanky

March 31, 2006 10:26 AM

yeah the only reason i didnt get the 360 is because it was having promblems and if i got the 360 i wouldnt be able to get the ps3. I guess i shouldnt be against the 360 so much cause it will most likely be pretty much the same as the ps3 if all the specs are correct.

hanky

March 31, 2006 10:31 AM

if somebody finds a sight that isnt siding with either one of the systems let me know. That is basically the only the right thing to do on finding correct info on both systems.is somebody finds a site like that email me a copperhead7269@yahoo.com

hanky

March 31, 2006 10:37 AM

what is oblivion?thats a weird name.

Shane

March 31, 2006 9:05 PM

Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, it is an amazing RPG, it comes after the game Elder Scrolls 3 Morrowind, which is for the Xbox and PC. On the PC it has online play but I have it for Xbox (and I've heard it's not a very good online feature). Oblivion is rumored to be on the PS3 but Im not sure. If you have a decent PC or an Xbox, you should check it out. The graphics arent very good on morrowind, so you should be able to play it with just an "okay" graphics card, but you might need a lot of RAM. But the graphics for Oblivion are awsome, so youll probably need a good graphics card. Well, check on gamespot.com and search for Morrowind and Oblivion to get more info if you want. Its a pretty sweet game, and Oblivion is one of the main reasons Im getting the 360. Also I need to get Fable 2 when that comes out. Sorry for such a long post, but I am kind of obsessed about these games.

hanky

April 3, 2006 10:24 AM

lol. Yeah i will probaly check it out. our computer has a great graphics card so no worries there.

hanky

April 4, 2006 7:46 AM

that oblivion game looks pretty sweet. Il prob go to gamestop tommorrow and try to find it cause i really wanna play that.

Shane

April 4, 2006 7:52 PM

Ya, my computer sucks though so I have to wait until I can get a 360 :(

hanky

April 5, 2006 10:43 AM

get a better graphics card, well graphic cards are expensive. Well a good one is.

Shane

April 5, 2006 7:09 PM

Ya, I would but to play oblivion I would need a good graphics card, sound card, video card, and a whole lot more RAM. And that could add up to over $1000.

hanky

April 6, 2006 10:25 AM

yea that much will add up to alot. Yep just wait till u can get the 360.alot cheaper to get the 360 no doubt about it.

Shane

April 6, 2006 4:51 PM

Well, I just heard from an AOTS commercial news thing that the PS3 will be up to 600 Euros which is about 733 USD (United States Dollars). I think they said Sony announced it but Im not sure, I'll find out later.

Shane

April 6, 2006 8:14 PM

Well, I don't know if they said anything about the PS3 price on AOTS, but I have found out that todays episode will be Sarah Lane and Brendan Moran's last time on the show :'( They were great hosts and will definately be missed by many.

hanky

April 6, 2006 9:05 PM

holy fishtales. Well im guess ill have to pay that much money for it then. Stinks that it costs that much. Maybe ill wait a lil longer and the price will go down on it.I just hope the ps3 has need for speed underground 3 because if it doesnt im gonna be really mad. I also hope itkillzone 2 is good. Killzone is basically xboxs halo if u think about it.

Shane

April 8, 2006 7:39 PM

I'm not much of a Halo fan, and I haven't played Killzone, I think the only reason why people like Halo 2 is the multiplayer. I think Halo 2 is highly overrated, but thats just my opinion. I like Half Life 2 myself.

Shane

April 8, 2006 7:42 PM

lol, http://hhh/ ?

hanky

April 10, 2006 10:24 AM

killzone is basically just like halo. There both very futuristic. thats it what makes them great games in my opinion.

Shane

April 10, 2006 5:25 PM

Ya, have you tried Half Life 2? If yoiu haven't you should its a little bit like Halo and its also very futuristic.

hanky

April 11, 2006 11:33 AM

great news!!!!!!! ps3 is going to launch in early november 2006.still hope they drop the prices on it tho.

jasoniniowa

April 14, 2006 12:17 AM

The first thing no one is looking at is any video u see of the ps3 games are all simulated. Second the only differnce between 360 and xbox 1 are particles like dust in the air and sweat. big deal. Also if there is any games that have real gameplay for ps3 theonly one I've seen is for smackdown vs raw 2007 and in the video the representative for thq says it is only at 10 percent of its final product. It already looks phenominal. If 360 is so great why are they being sued in over 3000 law suits for fraud and consumer related crimes? People need to do some real reserch before they start yapping their traps on the web because u sound retarded.

jasoniniowa

April 14, 2006 12:19 AM

Also I forgot to mention all the people that say xbox 1 is better than ps2 are right but what no one mentions is that ps2 was out for 2 years before xbox was released.Look it up for yourselves.So obviously it should be better.

Shane

April 16, 2006 12:53 PM

"Also I forgot to mention all the people that say xbox 1 is better than ps2 are right but what no one mentions is that ps2 was out for 2 years before xbox was released.Look it up for yourselves.So obviously it should be better."

Well, that doesn't really prove anything. And hanky, Half Life 1 is on PS2 and PC, and Half Life 2 is on Xbox and PC.

Shane

April 16, 2006 12:54 PM

"Second the only differnce between 360 and xbox 1 are particles like dust in the air and sweat."

Not true, you should study the consoles before declaring sometthing that you don't know.

April 17, 2006 10:31 AM

jasoniniowa just shut up. i dont think xbox is getting sued or 3000 diffrent things i think ur totaally makin that up

Shane

April 17, 2006 5:10 PM

I just read an article in Game Informer about a game for the Revolution called "Red Steel", it actually looks pretty cool (despite the fact that its for the Rev.) I have the URL.

hanky

April 18, 2006 10:48 AM

here is a game lineup. No gurantee that is true but its possible it is.ive got the url for it.What do yall think about it?

Shane

April 18, 2006 6:15 PM

It looks pretty good so far. I especially want to play Devil May Cry 4, Old West Game [Untitled Rockstar project], and if it's true Oblivion.

hanky

April 19, 2006 10:32 AM

hell i wanna play all of them lol. especially warhawk.

April 19, 2006 9:50 PM

i wonder if they are going to continue the ace combat series on the ps3. i sure hope so cause i love that game.

hanky

April 20, 2006 8:23 PM

have any of yall played any of the ace combat games?

wtf504549

April 20, 2006 10:20 PM

look you peps... ps3 vs 360
Graphically they may be similar most likely ps3 will have a slight advantage but...it is not the just statistical prowess of the machine but actually the way the software is used/manipulated by the hardware. The ps3 even if it had less graphic capabilties than the 360, if the way the software uses the hardware results in a better/more realistic /fun game... graphics dont matter.... in all who cares about graphics if game is good or bad. Graphics are only a tie breaker and nothing else

hanky

April 24, 2006 10:26 AM

hey i care about graphics and the power. I dont want a system that cant show a rain drop accurately. I also dont want a really weak machine which neither of the systems are. and im sure graphic wise they are really good. well at least the xbox has proved it. we just have to wait for the ps3 to come out for it to prove itself. im sure they both are gonna be very excellent systems. i dont see how u find graphics a tiebreaker.

hanky

April 25, 2006 10:50 AM

graphics can prove a lot to me. thats what i think.

Shane

May 2, 2006 5:39 PM

What the heck? My other post didn't get on here. I haven't posted in a while because I got a 360 and Oblivion, it is very cool and I highly recommend it.

Shane

May 2, 2006 5:40 PM

Oh, yeah and I think grtaphics are more than a tiebreaker, but not as important as the gameplay, but thats just my opinion.

hanky

May 3, 2006 7:15 PM

yeah gameplay means the most.good to hear that oblivion is good. i still wanna play that game so bad. i hope they will have the ace cobat zero the belkan war on ps3. its on the ps2 right now but id rather wait for the ps3 and see if it has it on the ps3 because the graphics for that game are really good for the ps2. so most likely the graphics will be alot better for it on the ps3.

hanky

May 3, 2006 7:19 PM

look at the url. check out some of the videos for ace combat zero the belkan war

Sin

May 8, 2006 1:24 PM

Xbox 360's graphics are better than the first, but still not revolutionary, like the transition from nintendo 64 and PS1 to Game Cube and PS2. 360 may be able to compete with PS3 but graphic wise it will most likely NEVER beat PS3's graphics unless they come out with a way to upgrade the 360. Still 360 might beat PS3, because the controllers for PS3 that they first showed look awful and uncomfortable. Plus! Xbox's controllers are so comfortable and 360 seems to have the best first person games, such as Elder Scrolls, Perfect Dark, Halo 3, and Time shift. I've always been a huge fan of RARE the designers of Goldeneye and Conker. Since they are working with 360, i believe there is still some hope for the system. I've played Perfect Dark and it is quite fun, it's not a game you can consider a extremely great game , like Elder Scrolls 4. But its definetly good and fun. Project Gotham 3 I think shows a bit of the 360's potential if you walk around the garages in the game in career mode you'll see what i mean. The probelm with 360 is that no one is pushing it to its limit. Like King Kong and Quake 4 i think they could improve the graphics, as elder scrolls has shown its a pretty strong console. The only thing I can see wrong with it is the Xbox Live. There seems to be several problems with it. It would be awsome to plug and play online...without the help of customer service! In any case Ps3 will have much to compete with, if developers start taking advantage of the 360's power and such. Especially Halo 3, If they screw that game up , 360 may lose the war again ps3 because Halo is a huge part of Xbox. Without it xbox could never even come close to competing with the others. Nintendo has Mario and Link, Sony has Final Fantasy, Jak and Daxter, Dante and the Tekken fighters. Xbox needs some characters to draw attention to it. So far they only have Master cheif and perhaps Kasumi from DOA, and hopefully their new addition Joanna Dark in hopes that they continue making the Perfect Dark games. anyways thats what i have to say.

i watched a little of the e3 show last night and it was showing a little bit of that warhawk game. It didnt really impress me that much.that was the only game that they showed for the ps3 i think.

May 12, 2006 11:24 PM

hmmmm.... ps3 can support 1080p and 360 can only support 1080i, so all you 360 peeps who say that the ps3 and the 360 will have equal graphics, ur wrong, AND the 360 can only have 9GB on there DVD discs... PS3 can have upto 50GB, higher quality images takes more space... if your limit is 9GB, your going to run out of space, and have to downsize quality. with PS3 you can have higher quality images because of the space on the disc bish... ive pwned you and you know it... wow

May 13, 2006 1:54 PM

The only reason ps3 is expensive is the blu-ray. the HD-DVD upgrade is going to cost $199.00.thats like $600 for it ps3 has blu-ray that is way its $600 bucks. Anyways Iam gonna get the ps3 and wave it to everybody who has xbox 360 then iam gonna kick their ass.

Justin

May 14, 2006 11:04 AM

OK, here's the deal...I work for Sony, and what I have seen is this...NOTHING!!!! All this talk about the PS3 having Blu-Ray and all that..WE STILL DONT HAVE A SYSTEM!!! WE STILL HAVEN'T EVEN RELEASED OUR BLU-RAY YET. We are HOPING for August.

As for the 1080p versus 1080i, lets talk about that for a second too....THERE IS NO 1080p SIGNAL OUT THERE YET!!! All that 1080p means on a tv is that it has 1080 lines of resolution on the screen...not that its some upgraded signal...sometimes i wonder about the intelligence of our so called gaming experts...do a little research first.......

I will try and get all the info i can for you all and let you know what they give me that i am allowed to release prior to the system hitting the market...most importantly...i will try and get the release date for the system and a game lineup...keep you all posted

Shane

May 18, 2006 7:47 PM

What? Quit fooling yourself Justin, it's painfully obvious that you don't work for Sony, you don't even know the release date, or the price. it was anounced at E3; it's November 17th $499 for the 20GB version, $599 for the 60GB version. I saw it myself and I have the URL. Don't post here if you're just going to lie about stuff like that. Lava, no one said the graphics were going to be equal, they said similar. And you seem to think graphics are the most important things in games, take the Halo series, in truth the graphics are not very good, but its one of the most popular games of all time. Or Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind, that game's graphics are barely even the quality of PSX and that was, until Oblivion was released, a very popular game, and was a Platinum seller. You've owned me? I think not my friend. And akajokerbox, you obviously couldn't kick anyone's ass, you can barely even spell, even if you were strong enough to beat someone up, they could just outsmart you and leave you stumped. Sorry I've been away so much, been playing Oblivion, such an awesome game. well that's all I have to say for now, I'll post later.

Shane

May 22, 2006 4:54 PM

I'd like to get the PS3, but I just don't have that kind of money, I mean, for the 360 it'll cost $90-$100 just to get a two player game and another controller. I can barely afford the consoles let alone games and accesories. Luckilly I heard that the game developers are going to try some experimenting with the game prices (atleast for the 360, I don't know about the Wii or PS3). I'll probably get it eventually once the price goes down and once I get a job, but until then there's no way I could afford that without saving for long, tedious amounts of time. Haha, notice how Justin isn't posting here anymore?

Justin

May 26, 2006 1:17 AM

Ok Shane, we will see if the PS3 actually comes out on November 17. One of the reasons that it will most likely get pushed back is our production of a tv that can handle the 1080P signal that the PS3 is supposed to have. in case you never noticed, sony doesnt have one yet. as of this point, the PS3 wont be compatible with any of the tvs that sony currently has out. and as for my absence for a few days, im sorry that i have to work for a living, and occasionally i do have to travel for work...you need any proof i work for Sony, call 1-800-222-7669 and ask for Justin in the 2nd level of support at the CISC. that will be all the "proof" you should need.

PS3 is better hands down... better grapics, faster loading, amazing near real physics, free online game play(thats right free), a massive 60GB hard drive, free wi-fi connector unlike the $120 for 360, better display, a crazy processor, and full backward compatibility. all in all PS3 is better there is more stuff to put but im to lazy so....yaaaaa.

May 28, 2006 8:06 AM

Stop moaning like retards people!!! Xbox360, PS3 and the Wii are going to be good in their own right. Just buy all three of them if that will make you feel happier and/or complete--and most importantly--if it will make you quit your ranting and raving.

Now go ahead and get yourselves a job and a credit card and then decide will console you will purchase first, second and that which will be last. I know I already have the 360 and will be buying the PS3 when it's released. I'll also add Nintendo's "next gen" console to my bedroom. It's like having the best of both worlds--only in this case is the best of all 3 worlds!

I've always had all three brands and will continue to do so until they become obsolete like the Atari and Sega. Both of these brands also held a special place in my heart and room back in the day.

And still! I have plenty of time for my girlfriend and my horrible job. All of this while you clowns are still debating foolishly about which console is better. How juvenile!

Do realize that all consoles have pros and cons in the short-term and long-term.

John

May 28, 2006 11:48 PM

I hate to admit it, but, anonymous dude, you're right. People should shut their traps and just enjoy the next-gen consoles for what they are: pure entertainment! All three consoles are cool in their own way. So shut up once and for all!!

Like that dude said, just go ahead and get yourselves a job and a credit card and then decide which console you will purchase first, second and then last. I suggest you all begin saving up and quit your bash talking.

Don't talk nonsence just to hear yourself talk, alright people!

Shane

May 31, 2006 4:54 PM

Just to clear up any misunderstandings that Anonymous and John might have, none of us besides George were fighting over which one was better. We are simply discussing the release dates, the prices, and the aspects of the consoles. We are not "bash talking" the consoles in any way. And if someone wants to debate, let them debate. It's their choice.

Fanboys sicken me. Yeah, a lot of the 360 games suck right now (excluding GRAW and Oblivion). But xbox360 and ps3 are nearly the exact same. The ps3 does not have 8 cores. It has one core and 7 DSPs. Developers are complaining about how hard it is to to write game code for 7 dsps. The 360 has 512 dedicated ram and the ps3 has 256 towards system and 256 to games. That means the GPU is dedicated to only 256mbs of what the game needs while the 360s GPU can take as much as it needs.

Jamzy

July 22, 2006 2:18 PM

ok this it how it is:

xbox 360 and ps3 are both good consoles if it were consonles ps3 strait awey but... xbox 360 has better games with games coming like gran theft auto and final fantasy which used to be sony exluvices sony have no outstanding games to leed its front assisans creed been the best gane but thats coming out on xbox 360.
i have also been impressed by xbox 360 graphics as much as ps3 even if ps3 graphics are better the 360 ones so far are still high priced pc which is good enough for me. and theres no proof so far that they will be better.
another thing is although claimed that ps3 is taking its time there has been very little in game footage where as 360 had in game footage 9 mounths before the us release.
ps3 may match xbox 360 sales but only because it has such a strong market in asia.with the price of ps3 compared to 360 not relly being juistace id go for 360 despite ps3 console power.

August 11, 2006 6:18 PM

I honestly go towards the x360. Their both gonna be the ruling competing consoles until someone else comes out with a new console after awhile (nintendo microsoft and sony are the only REAL recognizable console makers mostly ms and sony though) but for now I guess they both have their own strengths.Most of the biggest most important stats ms is better but sony has a better graphix card though over time generally x will, I think, be more willing to use it's graphics potential, as it looks so far. The best games... I dunno... the PS3 will have a variety of games just like the ps2 but many will get old quick or will just suck, the good ones will be those big titles that come out every now and then and stand tall for a while. While there will be far fewer big name games on the xbox i also think they'll have nearly NO sucky games like the small names on the ps3.it will have a mostly average to really good (but not perfect like the few big name) games which you'll play you'll like and then you'll get others and play and like and so on and all the while playing a bit of each game. big names would be like oblivion, where thats all you play. playstation 3 will have more of those but also more sucky games... o well...
thats what i think. both are good depends on what you like for you to choose, like me, i think i like the x better i got it its good and they look like theyre going farther, with GENERALLY catchier better games, but you choose, ps3 will have more perfect games but not as many actuall GOOD ones.

plz anyone answer me and btw i am a ps3 fan!!!!ya

August 24, 2006 1:04 PM

I think that this years console war is really going to be a difficult because this years systems are really strong competitors. I personally am a PS3 fanboy but I gotta admit, the XBOX 360 got the head start but the new Nintendo has the really cool control and its only going to be $200, so right now I wont choose witch system is going to be the best but I can expect that Sony will have a hard time having a good launch because of their $500 to $600 systems. At this point I dont care what people say because I might just get all three systems because each one of them has their strengths and weaknesses.

$mIELY

August 24, 2006 1:23 PM

If you guys want a PS3 lineup just go to Wikipedia.com and type in PS3, then when you end up in the PS3 page just keep scrolling down until you find the list of launch titles. You can also read the hardware specs, the prices for the system in other countries(personally, Canada will have the cheapest system, $488 to $588), another list of games that will come out later on in 2006-2008 and also search for other things

August 30, 2006 10:50 AM

i only think people who have played both for at least 2 months have the right to say which is better i used to like ps2 but got givven an xbox and only bought 1 ps2 game since i got it which was mgs3 but there will be less people who can buy both consoles because of the prices
itll be:just xbox360 just wii just ps3 but sum people will buy wii and 360 for about the sameprice as ps3

if ud actully owned an xbox 360 for the last 6 mounths ud know that xbox360 not just has a head start but also has anough behind it to be better than ps3.

Why is everyone focused on graphics?

You'd rather play a game with amazing graphics and horrible game play?

It's all gameplay that makes a game great. Goldeneye for Nintendo 64 for example. Zelda for Nintendo 64. Mario Kart for Nintendo 64. All horrible graphics compared to this generation. Amazing gameplay and there you go.

So don't focus on the Playstation 3's graphics and HD capabilities unless you want to strictly watch movies on it.

October 10, 2006 10:06 PM

omg... i swear... why do you wii fanboys say its all about gameplay and stuff. FUN IS AN OPPINION... guess what i hate mario games so from my perspective wii is not only the worst technologically but also "fun" wise. how can Wii boast about gameplay over tech. when they have no authority to say whether it is fun or not. i like games that keep me excited and at the edge of my seat so Wii is DEFINATLY out of the ppicture cause its predictable child games, like zelda. when i was younger i liked n64 over ps1 because i was a kid and i liked those chilish games but when your a teenager you see that those games lost their novelty and have become stail.

The final verdict Dont get a Wii unless your into childs games cause thats all your going to get. Wii always talks about motion sensors, but guess what, ps3 has them to so Wii cant say anything.

I am going to get a PS3 only because it has technology, FUN games like the FF series and innovation (being the motion senors)

i am not a sony fanboy, all i do is state the facts.

October 24, 2006 3:44 PM

that poster joe momma doesnt know what he is talking about.... you didnt back anything you said with hard facts, what games kept you at the edge of your seat? What games seemed to be childish? Grow up... seriously you need to look into the Nintendo games differently. With Nintendo games people want and see a good story line and what to see where it is going from where it was left off with the previous games, is Mario going to get Peach? How many times are we going to see Bowser, What is Link going to do now? Nintendo games are maturing with each console delivered by Nintendo. Atleast Nintendo has been consistent about what games it delivers. Anyway Im a Nintendo Fanboy and a Xbox fanboy, and its funny how we dont go tearing down other consoles like the PS fanboys do, like they have something to prove. Seriously, get over it, PS games kind of suck....... and what about FF? Did you know it started out on the NES, it went to PS and then it was made available to other consoles and then the PS fanboys were angry because they thought they were going to keep the franchise......What else has PS had? Oh yea, Crash Bandicot.... that went to the Game Cube..... wow... has PS had an original title that was huge and stayed with Sony?

As for technology, it's worthless if it doesnt have good games to back it up.... totally worthless...... Im sure you would want to drool over games that looked good and have no replay value..... Im sure I would.....

joe momma

October 29, 2006 10:20 PM

mix master mike here is my response:

the games that kept me on the edge of my seat are horror shooters like FEAR or Doom or something that follows a movie type storyline like MGS. nintendo games do not have a solid story line that follows a complete story structure i.e. mario, where you go around collecting some stuff. and i am the only "sony fanboy" to attack. go to youtube and seach ps3 and you will see some stupid videos posted by some stupid nintendo fanboys about Wii is going to own the PS3 and stuff like that. sony has many good games such as final fantasy which is one of the best, the GTA franchise which is now being ported to other systems because its that good, rachet and clank, jak, God of War, AND THE BEST OF ALL Metal Gear Solid!!

The Games look good and play good. OTHERWISE PS2 WOULDN'T BE THE BEST-SELLING GAMING CONSOLE OUT NOW!!! WHICH WAS MADE BY SONY!!! face it, Nintendo has no games that were meant for a demographic exceeding 10 years of age. If ya do find a game made by Nintendo that is meant for adults, post it.

hanky

November 3, 2006 1:20 PM

There are a few Nintendo games that are made by adults. I mean, there aren't a lot but there are some. And no, I'm not siding with anybody....

Kallum

November 10, 2006 2:31 PM

the ps3 processors is 3x faster then 1 360 processor, 360s have 3 processors so basically it exaclly the same, why pay 2 times as much for a ps3 then a xbox sme quality, plus xbox is out now, xbox has had its problems and fixed them, ps3 have all of that to come. plus PS3 do not play bluray games they play bluray DVDs which are reali expensive. so if PS3 games arent bluray y are they about £60 each?
also you cant sell your games to friends or shops, as the PS3 writes an encription to your game meaning only your PS3 can play it, i realy use to like PlayStation bt all the new 'restrictions' have made them crap, i have changed th xbox and i wont go bk its great.

November 10, 2006 7:05 PM

no doubt the ps3 is way better. its style is cool, the graphics are great, and the gameplay is way better. nintendo sucks!! the games suck, the graphics our really bad, the console style is terrible, even if it has all the motion stuff with its dumb controller-ma bobs it really is bad! i had the gamecube and it really let me down, way behind the x-box and ps2. i have nothing against the x-box 360 though. i love the style and the games and how it differs the great game play but... i still think the ps3 will be better.. AND It costs more so it has to be

Eyebl2

November 16, 2006 12:15 PM

As it stands now in my eyes, the xbox360 is the superior system. have you seen gears of war? that's the best looking game on the planet right now. no one can say different. also, when you compare games, the xbox 360 is on top in all of them. check ign.com and the review or gamespot.com. the controller is week without the rumble effect too. need for speed carbon when compared is better on the xbox360. marvel ultimate alliance, is better when compared to the ps3, call of duty 3 is better on the xbox 360, tony halk is better on the xbox 360, nh7 2k7 is better on xbox 360. Don't get me wrong I like sony but as it stands, it's not the superior system. it can't even hold up as well as xbox 360 can in erms of frame rates when comparing the third party titles and the most important thing of all, they games had already come out on the xbox 360 first. how do you come out with something after the fact and not be able to trump whats been out already?

Tom Tran

November 22, 2006 4:36 AM

The Xbox 360 graphic may be a little less than the PS3 graphics, but what matter the most is the CPU. As I have research on the E3 convention when they were comparing the 360 to the PS3, the 360 CPU was about 8 times better than the PS3 CPU. What really matter is the CPU not the graphics and the feature, so I have to go with the 360. And for the idiots who are saying the 360 sucks, maybe you should do your reseaching dumbass. And guess what the PS3 launch was a horrible there wasn't enough systems which caused fighting in some stores, and the games are no different from the 360 beside Resistence:Fall of Men, they just have the same games from 360. Also the only reason 360 didn't want blue-ray because the disk is very delicate the information are in the front so they can get damage very easily,and.... oh crap I forgot the rest but if you want to see the reasons it in xbox.com, I'm too tired to search, its like 2 am over here. And to Eyebl2, rock on brother, speak the truth, GEARS OF WAR, yeah just so kick ass. Once a microsoft fan, always a microsoft fan. Microsoft OWNS Sony because one, it's made with US tech, so it using tech from our comp in the world, which is really good in videos games, two, I hated when the guy who owns Sony or whatever said "The Next-Generation of video gaming begins when I say so," was just a bunch of crap. The next generation of video gaming begins when it shows itself, not when he says it. Once a Microsoft fan, always a Microsoft fan.

First off the 360 has had a year to make games! now lets recap the launch titles, PGR well its already been done and it sucks, Oblivion hmmm.. well its on pc, Need for speed most wanted well it was on all systems, king king as well, Perfect dark came from n64, My point being not one Original title, Ps3 launch titles well they have 21 in all except 4, and the other 17 aint all that great on the 360 or ps3, so this is what you do, give the ps3 a year and then challenge the system, besides Bill Gates had to make a program for game makers to develop games on the 360! And besides what ever happend to just disin games, all of a sudden its WW3 over which system is better!

I think the PS3 is better than the x-box 360 becasue of the graphics and the games are better. Right now I have these 3 games for the PS3 and the games are Ridge Racer7, NBA 2K7 and Call Of Duty 3. The Call Of Duty 3 has really good graphics. The x-box only has a 20 gidabites while the PS3 has a 30 gidabite and a 60 gidabite. The PS3 also has motion controllers and the x-box 360 controllers are huge and the buttons are weird while Sony keeps it simple

Im an xbox fan and will allways bee. I have an xbox 360 and i LOVE it. But....i think that wen halo 3 is released it will be better then the ps3 games. It will be extreamly popular. So why buy an playstation 3 when all xbox 360 games will rule all playstationgames??

PS3 sucks. Playing Blu-rays is all it's good for. But, I wouldn't pay $600 for that. You're all fools. You fell for Sony's plan to get their system to sell by making it outrageously overpriced. 360's already doing better anyway.

The 360 is doing extremely well versus the PS3 and is doing very good against the Wii, and the turn off console with the controller is genius and so is the close tray idea. :)

Ps2 owned the original xbox, even Microsoft knows.
120 million sold, xbox a lame 25 million.
Plus, xbox had... what? Halo, Halo 2, Kotor... uh...a buggy version of Morrowind? That was it.
ps2 had Okami, GoW 1 and 2, Ratchet & Clank, Soul Calibur, Jak, Devil May Cry, etc... so much choice. It just didnt have a decent fps (i dont give a shit, xbox only had 1 good rpg and 2 amazing shooter = does not balance ps2s huge great lineup)

Saleswise, Ps2 owned the xbox. But now its the opposite with ps3 only at 5.5 million and 360 at 11 million. I like the 360 more but i bet ps3 is gonna get better games in a year, and another price drop. However Xbox 360 has got a hold of some of Sony's 3rd party games, which makes me lean towards 360 slightly more.

ps2 vs xbox : ps2 won so easily in sales. xbox had two shooters, nothing else.

ps3 vs xbox 360: ps3 has 1 decent shooter, xbox 360 has another killer app, halo 3, plus gears was great. So 360s winning now.

yes i agree with gamers for the simple reason i mean who cares how much memory it can have and shit like that..it is about the games..it can have the best piece of computer technology in it but what the point if the games suck..its about the games right now and i will admit the 360 has some of the better games our right now and i own a ps3 and honest to god hate the xbox in general..the true winner cant be decided until later until ps3 gets more games out and at least has several selection of games cuzright now it doesnt have all that many which sucks but hey its new so who knows what will happen..but in a long run i think that will stay pretty evenly compared cuz there aint much of nothing in either one of the systems that makes one completey better than the other but who knowz

US, May 20, 2005 - It's 3:30 pm on Friday, May 20, the last day of E3. The fine PR folks from Microsoft, who invited us to their headquarters a week before E3 to show us their system, their specs, and the grand design behind their powerful new Xbox 360, have just sent us an urgent notice to update our specs with new information. Earlier in the day, we were sent a comparative analysis of the Xbox 360's power vs. the PlayStation 3's power.

We decided to put this Microsoft-provided information up undigested. Thus, enclosed is a Microsoft-made comparitive analysis. We have not altered, added, or tinkered with the data. We have not interpreted the specs. We have cut and pasted this information from the email into our site and formatted it. Make of it what you will, but be clear we know Microsoft has clearly slanted this info, and we're not endorsing it, just printing their version. There is a difference.
it hasCentral Processing Unit (CPU) performance.

The Xbox 360 CPU architecture has three times the general purpose processing power of the Cell.

Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) performance

The Xbox 360 GPU design is more flexible and it has more processing power than the PS3 GPU.

Memory System Bandwidth

The memory system bandwidth in Xbox 360 exceeds the PS3's by five timesThe Xbox 360's CPU has more general purpose processing power because it has three general purpose cores, and Cell has just one Cell's claimed advantage is on streaming floating point work which is done on its seven DSP processors.
The Xbox 360 GPU has more processing power than the PS3's. In addition, its innovated features contribute to overall rendering performance Xbox 360 has 278.4 GB/s of memory system bandwidth. The PS3 has less than one-fifth of Xbox 360's (48 GB/s) of total memory system bandwidth When you break down the numbers, Xbox 360 has provably more performance than PS3. Keep in mind that Sony has a track record of over promising and under delivering on technical performance. The truth is that both systems pack a lot of power for high definition games and entertainment.

However, hardware performance, while important, is only a third of the puzzle. Xbox 360 is a fusion of hardware, software and services. Without the software and services to power it, even the most powerful hardware becomes inconsequential. Xbox 360 games—by leveraging cutting-edge hardware, software, and services—will outperform the PlayStation 3.

For Christmas 2006 I paid $400. for the Sony X Box. Within 18 months it quit working. We were not able to send it back to the factory or to have it fixed until a few months ago. At this time it was sent to an individual who repairs x boxes. He said it could not be fixed. I want to know what was wrong with a machine that had cost $400. that it could not be repaired. I want to send this machine in and you tell me why it quit working and what was wrong and how it could completely break in 18 months. Please tell me where to send it.
