They're both PC's if anyone hasn't noticed.

I do compare research between tons of sites. I see the same thing on those sites and believe it. That's what we all do.

you are wrong about blu-ray has more movies than HD-dvd I know for a fact that its about even cause i work part time @ an electronic store and on our shelves they're about even as far as movie titles

What does that have to do with anything? Of course we noticed the similarity, over the last few years, the components in consoles are essentially the same as the components in PCs.

You're really going to argue that because an XBOX and an XBOX360 are more similar to a PC while a PS2 and a PS3 is only a little less similar to a PC, that a PS3 is better?

A PS3 and an XBOX360 both have a motherboard, a processor, ram, a hard drive and a disc drive. Your point? That somehow the PS3 is less PC like, therefore, better than an XBOX360?

This is just too funny.

They wanted to add HD-DVD to keep the costs down? That's $400 + $200...which is the price of a PS3. And when did Microsoft worry about keeping costs down. They charge money for everything. I see what you're saying though, they didn't put the HD DVD in the 360, they wanted you to buy it if you wanted to. Not all people need HD-DVD. Good point.

Well, the Wii doesn't have xbox live. But Nintendo and Sony offer it for free. Sony obviously doesn't have xbox live, because they don't have xboxes. They do have an online service that may give the 360 a "run for it's money"

Wow fanboys get over yourselves nearly every point someone has made bashing either 360 or PS3 has been blatant ignorant fanboyism and far from the truth.

I own a 360 and a Wii and will probably get a PS3 in due time, probably in time to get Gran Turismo for it since that and Guitar Hero are all I ever use my PS2 for these days. The 360 on the other hand has plenty of games that I enjoy playing and that's why I bought one, I understand it's been out for a year longer than a PS3 but that's no reason for me to go buy a PS3 now, I'll wait, when the games come, the purchase can follow Wii on the other hand, I bought mainly to undercut all my friends who had them and had to wait for Christmas and be the first with one, there still aren't any games I truly enjoy playing for it but I figure, whatever I already have it and sooner or later there'll be something that catches my eye. I can't tell you how many times a game came out for Gamecube that I thought looked cool but I never had a GC so I never got to play games like Resident Evil for example (it came out on PS2 way later but by then I didn't even care).

But hey, it's to be expected. You called yourself a fanboy. It's typical.

the keyword their being may .. and probably doubtful and yes may end up costing the same when you buy the hd-dvd addon on but at least it wasnt forced onto us just becuase sony wants their format to win.. and i really dont know where your get your info about blue ray having more hollywood support and or more titles.. thats actually pretty funny.. and yes it is true that their will be dual format drives coming out

See its crap like that... Do you even have an HDTV??? Have you ever watched a HD DVD? The only reason its called HD DVD is because it was approved my the people who make DVD's. Blu Ray is the rogue format hence no DVD in the name. Most Blu Ray titles are encoded in mpeg2 where as most HD DVD's are in VC-1 which is proving to be a lot better. Not to mention HD DVD having True HD sound which is basically lossless audio. Read a damn article or 2 before spouting off the first thing that pops in your head.

Nor would I want to play Blu-Ray. Packed full of DRM, HDMI only, lack of 1080i support, expensive and youre forced to buy the PS3 with a Blu-Ray drive. The HD-DVD drive on the 360 is optional, so if you dont want it, thats $200 less spent. Not to mention that HD-DVD has better image and sound quality than Blu-Ray and allows playback over component cables...oh and guess what...HD-DVD uses a blue laser too

So what if its not fully backwards compatible. I couldnt care less if the 360 doesnt play back lame games that no one likes anyways. Just as long as it supports all the good titles (which it does).

And Bluetooth sucks for gaming anyway. It has higher latencies than RF, so you end up with lag in gaming - ever wonder why gamers either go with RF wireless mice or regular USB? Less lag on the input. Bluetooth is better off left for cell phones. The 360 controllers use RF, which has lower latencies and uses much less power to transmit.

And even though the 360 has been out for a year longer, it still has a more powerful graphics processor. And its $200 less. No wonder nobody is buying PS3s
