<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">MICROSOFT'S Xbox 360 and Sony's soon to be seen PS3 are much of a muchness according to games developer, Denis Dyack.<br>
In an interview with Game Daily,Dyack, who is president of Silicon Knights, said the 360 and the PS3 were are equal in power.<br><br>
While the PS3 had more processing power, the 360 had more available memory, he said. There is potentially more power in the PS3 but it was harder for developers to tap and might as well not be there.<br><br>
The public might think that the PS3 was better, but to developers, they both looked the same, Dyack said.<br></td>

I agree. on games, I think they look about the same. What it comes down to is the other features like media playback, integrating into your network, and of course online gaming.

Where PS3 is free to play games online, has more connectivity options, and a bigger HDD (60GB/bg Wifi/3-type card reader/HDMI, the list goes on).

</div>a.k.a. it costs more and some of those features people might not even use. Besides which, I doubt PS3's online will content with Live. Live is just overall a good system. Sony promises alot and comes out with little. Should know that from the PSone and PStwo.

See i'm an xbox fan but not so crazy about live. i think in most games its not implemented well. It's a pain to find games, connections are slow sometimes, and you always have some 12 year old cursing in your ear. I turn off mics completely. I think Halo 2 is the only game which has Live done right. No searching for games. It does that all for you. Part of the reason it was such a hit.

</div>and to add to that, Xbox has had a few years now to perfect how live should and does work...Sony might get a good online going, but I doubt it'll compare to Live anytime soon if at all

Sony's online service will be free, just like the Silver Membership for LIVE is free. There are games, like the FF series which require a monthly fee to play. Nobody really knows what it costs to play a game online. Has Sony said online multiplayer will be free?? I haven't seen anywhere that it has, only free content which LIVE has as well.<br />
<br />
IT all comes down to wha you play. I love Halo, Sports, racing games, and FPS. Quite frankly M$ seem to have the better games and licenses thus far with exclusive titles so it's the games, not what it can do that's sold me<br />
<br />
EDIT:<br />
Just found something that Sony has a Premium Online service, which if online multiplayer is free then why would they need a higher level subscription. Seems to me it's the same model as Silver and Gold Memberships, just that no one knows what the Premium service costs

I don't think sony's internet options will be as good as Micr. Live is. I also think the controllers look better, and I like the feel of the xbox controller better also. But it basically comes down to which system has the games that you like to play. For the most part there are alot of games that are for both systems, but then there are those ones that are only for each system. Depends which has the games you want to play more.

The first Xbox's were console's like all the rest, then the Live service was born and the Xbox became a new form of entertainment altogether. It was no longer the big ugly box it was the green light of hope bringing online gaming to the masses. Sony can never compete with the sheer genius that is Live, only try to copy it. But, I think it's all going to boil down to the games, and not the features.<br />
<br />
You'll have the hard reality of Xbox games with strong american overtones of sex and violence. And then you'll have your Sony games with it's anime violence and ever present, though not directly addressed, sexuality (including a few confused men who wear tight feminine leather outfits and long hair). <br />
<br />
Both consoles will, of course, have the crap EA glorps (I'm trying to convey the image here of a very powerful bowel movement all over the consumer but the word doesn't exist yet so we'll call it glorp) out.

Sony could win because of the hate Microsoft has. Not only that, recently sony twisted konami's arm into making Pro Evolution Soccer (Winning Eleven 10 ) on the 360 into a barely competent game. On the other hand, the PS2 version has full editing capabilities, 32 stadia and online lobbies. And if konami can be persuaded, they may just have to do the same to other players in the market. This console war will be the dirtiest by a long way and only nintendo will be able to keep their hands clean.

</div>There is no arm twisting going on as far as gameplay and content. The split is there because both systems are still for sale and Sony/M$ don't want to shun gamers of the old systems just because new ones are coming out. There have been different features for different systems and the 06-07 of FIFA, NCAA, Madden, PES WE 10 are the last of it's kind. Next year all content will be available for the 08 editions for the 360/PS3/Wii rather than being split up as there will be no Xbox/PS2 versions of the games because the Xbox (I know is) and the PS2 (not quite sure) are being discontinued<br />
<br />
It doesn't make much sense but it does provide sales for the last-gen consoles

I'm not really surprised - release titles always look about the same for same-gen consoles. The Xbox didn't really look better than the PS2 for a while. It took time for the console's extra power to show.

They will be the same with some games.<br />
But some games will take adventage with ps3 hardware and some will take adventage of the xbox360.<br />
Now for the user interface. They about the same.<br />
But Live you can get new game content and trailers and alot)<br />
With Sony you get online internet browser (I can see game stealing.)<br />
They are about the same but the xbox 360 came out first and we are still waiting for the ps3.

i dunno how people are saying "xbox live owns the PS3 online thing... because... uhh... LIVE... is... awsome?"<br />
<br />
The PS3 isnt out, the 360 is, dont be a fricking 360 fan boy and bash something thats not even out!<br />
<br />
I think its ******ed that you should have to pay monthly to play a game online, thats like having two different internets hooked up in your house, it should be free like computer games (exept WoW).<br />
<br />
Lets all wait till the PS3 comes out before we point out weaknesses that we cant experience ourselves.<br />

You don't pay monthly for Live either. You pay $50 a year which breaks down to $4.17 a month to download all the demos and free games they have. Honestly I'm waiting to see Sony's online offering for the PS3, the PS2's was weak as hell.
