The only thing the PS3 have going for it is bluray and that will be a short lived fad. Disks are a thing of the past. The future is SSD and DD.
Discs will sell very well for the next 15-20 years before drives take over, if they even ever do. I for one will never switch over to downloads and drives for my movies until i am completely forced to. i prefer an actual case with a disc inside. Also stop being ignorant.

The PS3 has ALOT more going for it besides BR. Look around, no one is talking 360 anymore except for the occasional article about how it fails or is falling behind. It's the exact opposite of what was happening a year ago when people were bashing the PS3.

This thread is just going to turn into any of the other millions(exaggerated) of other PS3 vs. XBox threads.

You'll be waiting a long time on PS4.... Sony says that they haven't even considered what architecture they will use yet.... Once they start the ball rolling, and announce, it will be another 3 years till it is a prototype and another before it is out; talking 2015

nice to see you found another member who is equally blinded by microsofts empire so why dont you go ahead and also say how 'poor' the cell processor is etc etc etc while we the rest of us with brains acknowledge the PS3 for what its doing well right now which is growing and making its stand in the industry.




the cell processor at the end of the day is in the same league as current quads. nobody in this thread is saying that a console is more powerful than a PC for gods sake this is about 2 consoles so why are people STILL trying to further layout the whole 'my pc is betah than dis console and i also love microshoft so i win twice yah!'. Come on.. it plagues every single thread of this nature and its goddam boring to say the least. We get it. You love microsoft beyond reason. Your 360 has its own pillow. When you look at what ways the PS3 beats the 360 all you see is a blank screen. And we all get that you want to beef up your system by bragging about it over consoles that were never designed to compete.

now move along both of you.
People like us who have xbox 360's dont "like" microsoft, we like the huge selection of games. And even if the ps3 ports are going to be superiour in some opinionated way, the 360 versions are going to be exactly the same so theres just no reason for people with 360's to go out and buy a PS3 right now unless you just want to have it right away. The person who wrote this review oviously favored the ps3 over the 360. The controle maping and the "feel" of the ps3 controller are purly opiniated comments and are not based in fact. I choose to stay with my 360 because I get more game selection for a console that is cheaper.

Lets see a review of the ps3 and 360 version of gears of war 2...oh wait a sec...

And by the way the 360 is also an excilent "multimedia extendor," like right now i have it connected to my vista pc and im streming music to my surround sound system. I can also streem divx movies the same way.

EDIT: arguing over ports is futile unless one port is drastikaly lacking in some way, a console is defined by exclusives. Everything else is Opinion.

Oh ya buddy look at this thread. Theres lots of people talking 360. 360 is better, 360 is worse. What about gears of war 2? no ones talking about that i guess. This is the first news article that says the 360 is lacking in some way even if it is based on a bias opinion.

What's with your Gears of War 2 obsession? PS3 fanbois could just as easily say something along the lines of, "Let's see a review of the PS3 and 360 versions of [insert PS3 exclusive] .... oh wait a sec..."

What does that prove?

My reason for buying a PS3 is simple. Most killer exclusives for the 360 release for the PC as well. Most PS3 exclusives don't release for the PC. Since I have a gaming rig, why buy a 360?

Hmm. A couple of pages of good discussion, followed by a bout five pages of pointless loser bickering. Good job, guys!

(Apologies to the few good posts that actually did slide into pages 3-5.)

I'm sure we could find a completely different set of games where 3 out of 4 skewed towards the X360. If we were to look at the entire universe of games that are available on both, my gut says that the X360 would win...but no one has done that kind of analysis.

Um, no, couldn't be more wrong about that. Every...single...debate on this topic turns into a battle royale with armies of loyal fans on both sides. At best, it's a draw. But the most recent poll someone posted on the subject has the X360 in front of the PS3 (and everything else, for that matter) by a small margin. But even then, it's clear that we're pretty evenly divided on our favorite console here.

(Now watch...all the PS3 fanboys who don't normally bother with the Video Games forums will jump down there and try to skew the poll in their favor. It was 29% to 21% X360 over PS3 when I wrote this, so if it's different when you check, don't accuse me of lying!!!)

So far, within 5 minutes - Ive read about 2-3 posts that are great examples how unproffessional and immature people can be when it comes to dicussions like these...... Its kind of sad almost.

If the PS3 is SOOOO flawed then why did it just trump the 3/4 games up on that list. Not to mention, the "3 year old GPU" you talk about can handle the same graphics as the 360 so far........ So you're point is?

We got a poll going on Gamespot in our popular union with about 130 votes overall on the PS3vs360 discussion, and its like neck to neck every day I check it.
