WRONG see my post on VHS vs betamax.

1. yes i think ps3 is better in hardware, but its not THAT much better, only by a bit

2. who said blu-ray will prevail? just because blockbuster? hell porn industry supports HD-dvd so still too early to tell

3. halo 3? i don't know much microsoft games but i bet someone can list some. microsoft has good games too, and a huge company to back it up

4. eventually tire of wii? this point is pure stupidity. if u can get tire of wii u can get tire of anything, including ps3 and x360

5. only a tiny fraction of the population will buy ps3 just because of a game, plus GoW3 is probably gonna be ported as GoW did

just being objective here

the author of that article is just another subjective person from some unknown site

Yea...betamax vs VHS was like what, 25 years ago? LOL

That technology I'm sure is older than you are.

OP --> PS3 FTW...

All remaining replies: I er h/\3 s0|\\|y!

This whole PS3 vs Xbox crap has to stop... it should be illegal to post anything about it on OCN... god, people are so whiney, and such little fanboys O_O

Personally, I agree with most of the OP... esp. the Wii part.
I am fat, and wanna stay that way. Screw Wii and the endless arm-excercise! If I lose my arm flab, I'll look awfully strange with a big gut! haha.

Not everyone who posted a reply said "I hate Sony." It's actually more of a debate between technology(HD DVD vs Blu ray). But alas, the underlying debate IS ps3 vs 360.

I agree on the part that a lot of that is opinion and not really fact (the original statement).

In my own opinion however, I think PS3 is going to pick up. With better and better games coming out, its only a matter of time. Any friend I have that has a wii hardly ever touch the thing when they game on their own time (I like to think of it as a group or party system since that’s the only time my friends use it really). I just don't think it’s a serious gaming counsel. It’s aimed at a different generation and gamer-type and I think its poor that a lot of people compare it to PS3 and 360. It really just depends on the type of gamer you are. Your probably not going to buy a wii if you are a hard-core FPS gamer, or racer. And with other games touting better and better graphics (GTA IV for example) the wiis hardware cant keep up, and it obviously cant render/ play the type of games you’ll be seeing on 360 or PS3. I’m not bad-mouthing it, but your comparing apples to oranges in my opinion. I could care less about the format war..

I actually think that a few changes to the HARDWARE would be necessary to make the PS3 a bit more appealing, changes that will not make it necessary for people already having a PS3 to change. Thus not having to make a massive recall or anything.

-Faster disc reading: 2x just doesn't cut it, the load times are awful and some games need to be transfered in large part on the hard drive to cut the loading times. A 4x/6x reading speed would already improve things a big deal, and the purple diode that was recently developed that costs much less to develop than the actual blue one could help making this happen.

-65nm Cell: Have you ever seen what the PS3 looks from the inside? The fan/heatsink necessary to cool the Cell is HUMONGOUS. Shrinking to 65nm would help in producing a PS3 "slim". And believe me: smaller hardware sells better, at least in Japan. It's one of the reasons that came back the most often when the Japanese where asked why they wouldn't buy a PS3 (true survey!)

-Rumblaxis: Rumored to be in the 80gb/Motorstorm bundle coming up in August. I hope the rumble will be more than what dual shock was (IE: rumbling on one side only to show where projectiles come from, etc)

The 360 only needs to fix his horrible failure rate to stay in the run: The 65nm shrink due this Fall will probably do the trick

People bash Microsoft because it's the popular thing to do. Microsoft is oh so evil don't you know.

People bash Sony because they have been so successful with the PlayStation. They want to see an underdog win.

It's a lose-lose argument.

Why would anyone argue that the PS3 won't succeed? Of course it will succeed, it isn't just going to disappear. The PlayStation name alone is known worldwide. More games will come out, more features will be added, revisions will be made, etc.

At the same time, why do people insist of arguing that the 360 will suddenly stop being successful? The 360 price is going to drop and will continue to do so for competition with the PS3. More games will come out, more features will be added, revisions will be made, etc.

It's exactly the same for both consoles. Sony and Microsoft have plenty of experience and money to throw at their gaming divisions. The competition will ultimately benefit us, the consumers.

All that goes without saying. But lets be honest...it's like talking to brick walls around here.
