I'd recommend 360. Although, i've only played on a PS3 twice.

Advantages of 360:
You get to play with me.
Graphics are amazing (so are PS3s, but not as much Razz ).
They're cheaper, and you don't need the extra hard drive space, as I doubt you'll use it.
It's damn fast, although they are meant to break easily (mine hasn't yet), so you may want warranty.
Huge range of games exclusively to 360.
Has most of the same features as PS3, internet, watch films, awesome graphics, etc...
No Blu ray slowing the operating system down.

You have to pay for Live, and thats the only bad thing. Finding other players is a lot faster on it than PS3 though.
It's easy to get Demos from the market place, and easily getting instant updates for games.

IF you go for a console dont go for the Xbox. I have friends who have both and i think the PS3 is better, it starts with the controllers. The Xbox ones just feel weird.

Well atm im tilting towards a Ps3, mainly because of the free internet and the controllers.

Its more the graphics/ speed etc that im wondering which is better.

I have played on the 360, but tbh fifa and madden dont exactly do graphics of any console justice.
Im thinking ps3 will be quite big this crimbo

Graphics and Speed are too similar to call between the two consoles, there's literally NO difference in that dept.

Quality of games and Online experience are the only real difference, I've got a 360 and I find Xbox live to be well worth the 35pa I pay for it which is basically 3 a month I used to spend on mags w/demo discs.
I've not used the PS3 network, but Live is excellent.Gamewise, it's all down to personal preference.

Post by kingofapples on Thu Oct 30, 2008 3:28 pm

None biased towards either, im a PC fag, i take facts as they are
I used to own a ps3 and my brother has a 360

Ps3
Good points:
Nice design
Good controllers
Big harddrive, and you can easily get a bigger one, just need to get a laptop sized one
Very good graphics
Good amount of games (metal gear. Little big planet, Home)
Optical sound
A handly 8 core processor
Free internet
Very quiet
Can be put anywere
Blu ray - for games and films (20GB of space on disks, Bigger games)
Bad points
Expensive
Controllers are expensive (if you need a second/break one/Smash one against wall - Thats why i dont like cod4, it does that to me, and cost a nice 40)
Not that many exclusives, yet, a few on the way tho
Sony are crap at deadlines, you end up waiting for ages for something
No in-game music

Xbox 360
Good Points
cheaper
Lots of exclusives (halo 3 is a god)
Xbox live - Demos/fast connections to server for gameplay
No lag
Good comunity
Easy to use
Hand-fitting controllers (just a bit on the heavy side)

Bad Points
Can overheat/known to overheat and break
Cant put in small covered areas
Looks like a white box, not very attractive
Heavy controllers
Pay for live
No bluray
HD-dvd player, HD-dvds are now dead
Dvd size disks
No room for bigger data sized games (i think gta maxed out the size of the disks)
No full 1080i games

For me there are two options

a console for "now" = the 360 - Its got everything you need set up for you, nice selection of games and a good online community, tho it does come with the "red ring of death" risk. but unfourtunetly the 360 has come to the end of its line, it doesnt really have anywere to go.

A console for the "future" = the ps3 - A good base cosole that give you what you need but it also has a great amount of hope for the future, it has many places it can go, new HD games, better uncompressed sound, better graphics, better ingame XMB, better out of game XMB, basically it will be improving massivly over the next 12+months if you can wait

Right thats most point covered, final point is internet connectivity on both im kinda clueless.

Do xbox live and ps3 internet work wirelessly like a laptop, or do you have to have some sort of wireless or wired modem with x feet?

internet experience on PS3 is kinda dodgy, blueray takes ages to load so sony resorted to loading some game data onto the PS3 to speed it up

internet on 360 is great well worth the money you gotta pay which is really not that much

it kinda depends what type of gamer you are and what games you like to play
if ur kinda hardcore and like your FPS go for 360, otherwise go for PS3

The PS3 also has free internet connectivity so all you pay for is if you download a game or movie from the store

Loads of people have said to me that the PS3 lags online and can be dead slow but I've never had that problem, even when my internet has been going spazzy I've been able to play on COD4 with no problems.

Like Ip said graphics and speed are too close, although I personally prefer the PS3 as a console it's up to you what you buy.

Incorrect, internet is fine on the ps3, i never had lag and my brother was on wow all the time using the same internet connection

And sony upload some of the data to the hdd to speed up loading time yes but this takes about 5-10 minutes to do (15 tops for some of the bigger games) and you have to this once, what you get from bluray in return is superb Smile

If you like racing simulators the GT5 will be the best racing game to date, full 1080i graphics, and a ps3 exclusive. but for other things like fifa and golf etc they are all multi-platform

At our school the undisputed master console is the 360, personally I reccomend it over the PS3.. mainly for the online gameplay though it costs the PS3 can never match up to it in the fun it brings, to me in all other aspects they are pretty much the same, also I think the PS3 consoles were wierd not the 360 ones, they are wonderful to use.

well, kingofapples hit right on the spot. It's impossible to say that either is superior, but XBOX is better now while PS3 is more of a future console.

I'd say XBOX - you will always be able to buy a PS3 when it'll outrun XBOX.

I'm siding with the 360 here. Of all the people i know who has them, only 1 has ever had to be sent back because of the dreaded 'Ring of Death'.
I have the Elite version which comes in black and i think it looks so much better than the white one. It's also a revamped version of the first one released so there have been less cases of reported break downs with the Elite. I think microsoft have rearranged the packages lately and i'm sure i saw there's a premium one with a 60GB HD now.
Xbox live is great, never had any problems with that. I bought a 12 month Live Gold card on ebay for 27 which is definately worth it. Running it through the ethernet cable but my mate has the adapter and never had problems with that apart from the cost of it of course Wink .
I'd say the 360 has a better array of games with GoW2 comes out next friday. Whereas i feel they've failed to release any major games exclusive to the PS3. The only one i was boned about was GT5 cause i love that series.

Just for the record, i never had the Xbox, but had the PS and PS2 so have converted after testing them both out.

I've played on both a lot, most points have been covered so i'll go to the main point, the graphics.

Sure, at the moment the graphics are too similar to call, however the PS3's system has the ability to have games with much better graphics because of computing power etc.

There is one more advantage to those living in poor countries - xbox 360 can be flashed, so a game costs no more than the cost of a DVD. Comparing to amazing prices of PS3 games, this is a gift from the Heaven.

I have already started playing Gears of War 2...

and PS3 has yet to be cracked/flashed.


While some might look down on me, I don't care about that. All I can say is that you should be happy you were born in a rich family/wealthy country.

Having a cracked/flashed Xbox is s*** and retarded and against the law. PS3 should call themselves lucky.
