    PS3 is objectively better. Better machine, better processing and speed, reverse-compatibility with earlier Playstation games, and a built-in bluray player. It's actually one of the cheapest bluray players you can buy.

    You'll get a lot of responses about which was is better, but they both have their pros and cons. As far as graphics, durability and price, you'd have to look up the specs of each one. As far as which one to chose, a very general suggestion would be to go with PS3 if you want an all-around entertainment system (blu-ray player, etc.), but go with XBOX360 if online gaming is more important to you. Another way to decide is to look at the exclusive games each console has and decide which one looks more appealing.

    I'm not a gamer as such. But, the Kinekt sensor for Xbox has my attention...

    PS3 is an amazing compute/graphics engine for its price though.

    Fuck that shit. I'm getting both before I move out of this house. I want the bluray player of PS3 and still want the games on XBox. Either way, I'm still using a computer most of the time with you losers. icon_razz.gif But to be honest, I'd rather be having sex.

    Graphics:

    Graphics wise there's no difference. Yes the PS3 packs better hardware that should in theory give it the advantage but unfortunately Sony made it very difficult to develop for PS3 Cell's. Video game development costs 5 million + per game as it is. Considering the fact that XBOX sells better than PS3 in North America there is no incentive for developers to spend that extra time figuring out PS3's real power. They said developers would eventually get used to PS3's hardware configuration but here were 7 years later and the graphics are still nearly identical.

    Blu-Ray:

    This has always been the "advantage" on the PS3. By the time Sony's console was announced there was a heat up battle between what soon would become the standard for HD Media Storage. It was Blu-Ray(Sony and others) VS HDDVD(Toshiba and others). Sony forced Blu-Ray support in the PS3 expecting to have similar sales to that of the highly successful PS2 and as a result Blu-Ray would become the standard. What Sony failed to realize was that not many people were willin to spend $600+ on a game console. Right now the price for a PS3 is incredibly low compared to what it was back then. Overall It is still a good deal to get a PS3 for the BR but this format is just a bridge between hard media and streaming video. I haven't touched my BR players in ages. Every day that passes by hard media makes less and less sense.


    PSN Vs XBox Live:

    Hands down PSN ftw. It is free! You do get a lot more with XBox live and the infrastructure seems to be more reliable overall(PSN got hacked and the network went down for a few weeks) but you have to pay $70.

    Kinect VS Move :

    Seriously Move is a fucking joke. They just copied Nintendo verbatim no shame whatsoever. It is way too late to this party it lacks a shit load of exclusive titles and it just seems pointless to buy 4 extra remotes you're barely gonna use. Kinect on the other hand takes it to whole new level, not only you can use it for games but also for voice and gesture controls.

    Content :

    I have to say Microsoft is working hard on this one. Even Rogers on Demand here in Canada is available through XBox live. They keep signing deals with content providers offering more for the same price.

    Summary:

    If you REALLY want a cheap Blu-Ray player and you don't want to pay for online services then go buy a PS3. If you don't really care about these 2 things so much, seriously get an XBOX, it is overall a better experience and it keeps evolving on the right direction. Sony is kind of a train wreck as of lately.

    Get a PC, support the master race.

    Seriously I hope to somehow land in bizarro world where console gaming is dead. It's a royal shame that despite being a superior hardware platform it gets ports of popular titles.

    Some day. icon_sad.gif

    PCs are way too generic, you have to deal with installations, viruses, sometimes you cant figure out why your game is slow and you're playing on a tiny monitor. Not to say you cant just hook it up to your TV but in most cases it is attached to a monitor. I own 3 PCs, one is hooked to my TV but it is so uncomfortable to play with a keyboard on the couch lol. I always play my games in the office but I play more on my BOX than my PCs.

    The day you can build a PC for $250 that lets you play the latest titles let me know lol. It is a matter of budget and comfort to most people. It does make sense to own a dedicated game console.

    Duh, this one is easy! PS3!

    Xbox is shittier graphics than a PS3!

    Your games would get scratch on an XBOX 360 over time to the point you can't play them anymore!

    PS3 and XBox have about the same games on both platform unless your really into exclusive titles on one system than the other. Like HALO over Warhawk and other games!

    PS3 is just better since you can view your blu ray movies easily on it.

    PS3 and Xbox are around the same price but everyone knows the PS3 is better.

    I have both system and ill tell you, I never touch my XBOX 360 at all unless I have a game I really want to play on the Xbox that is an exclusive!

    The only good thing about the Xbox is the online since the online part on the 360 is really good and most of the old games dont die online as fast as they would on the PS3.

    I own both but I love my PS3 more. The graphics for games are usually a lot better and I like the fact you can do so much with it. I use mine a lot for streaming movies/tv shows and for watching Blu Ray's.

    Technically it has superior specs to the X Box although in Sony's infinite wisdom they included an amazing CPU but not enough V RAM on the graphics card.

    I also hate how on the Xbox if you want play online you HAVE to have XBox live and pay for it whereas on the PS3 it's completely free. Also there is no in built wi fi card in the 360, again, it's something extra you have to shell out for.

    Sony did piss me off when they removed PS2 emulation from the later PS3 consoles but from a business prospective I understand why they did it.

    I agree with you for the most part except the part about Xbox Live. Its the shit! I didn't pay $70 I paid about 30 bucks for the year. Way worth it, especially if you have the Kinect. You can do almost anything on Xbox Live, twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Hulu, Netflix, watch ESPN live, all in HD. Not to mention if you have Kinect you can do this all by voice command and if your friends have Kinect you can video chat with them as well. I used to be a plystation guy but there is no comparison.

    Definitely don't agree. Yeah PCs are pricier and take more know-how to figure out, but they can provide just as nice of a gaming experience as a console.

    I have two gaming computers, my less powerful laptop that I use for on-the-go gaming or in bed, and my big rig that I have setup in my living room just like my consoles.

    Ever since I got my laptop I haven't touched my 360 or PS3, not even for watching blu-rays. Now with my big rig, I'm pretty sure I'm going to skip out on the next iteration of consoles.

    I wouldn't recommend a PC for a new gamer (I'm not suggesting anyone get one here). But I will be damned if I don't try to suggest avd gamers to move toward PC gaming. It needs more support.

    Oh and.. Steam sales.

    Consoles are for people who want none fuss gaming.

    Not having to worry about having the latest graphics card, the newest drivers, adjusting resolutions etc is important for a lot of people.

    I like the fact that I can just pop a disc into my PS3 and know that everything is optimized, a game is unlikely to crash and like PC users I can receive patches if there is anything that needs to be tweaked.

    PC gaming for the win

    Anyone who says XBox is stupid, why would you support someone who is going to destroy used game sales, renting, and altogether gaming together by making it something money related.

    PS3 wins icon_razz.gif Better games, free internet play, and more space. Agreed though, updates and installing shit sucks~~~

    PS3!
    I have been a PS guy since it first came out and always will be. I have played my fair share of XBOX though seeing as how a lot of my friends have XBOX and I have no choice but to play XBOX when I am there.

    One of the biggest pros for Playstation is that I have never had an issue with it. And I think it is embarrassing and ridiculous that XBOX users STILL get that "Ring of Death" thing. Every person I know who has an XBOX has had no fewer than 3 "Rings of Death". Sure, they might replace it for you for free... but then you are left without a game console for however long it takes them to send you a new one...and it isn't guaranteed to not happen again.
    Playstation does have much better graphics. The Blu Ray player is a huge, convenient selling feature. And the exclusive games are a lot better for PS than XBOX.

    I also find it kind of silly to have to pay a lot of extra money to play online, even though you already bought the system, game, and use your internet connection to even get online. I admit, PSN is not perfect, nor will it ever be. But for free, it's just fine. And XBOX Live has a lot of issues itself,including connection issues.But they still expect you to pay extra for a service that is supposed to be so "great", but still has its flaws too. Which is why I rather have free psn and accept the few issues, than to pay XBOX live and still get issues.


    Side note:
    PC gaming is pretty amazing. But it can get pretty pricey to get a good gaming system. And it is far to easy to hack in most games, which takes away a lot of the fun.

    I have both systems. But personally I've loved 360 more than PS3.

    360 is just more gamer friendly with the little things it can do and some of the exclusive titles. I've always been a Sony guy, but the PS3 was a bit of a letdown for me when I traded in my previous 360 for it. Thank God I went and got a new one!

    I shouldn't be involved in a fanboy post like this, but Xbox 360's installed base and vast library of titles speaks for itself. Online gameplay is far superior on Xbox 360, so keep that in mind.

    Why not get both?

    Well my point was that PCs are way more expensive and less comfortable compared to game consoles that's all. It is more confortable to play games on a 42"+ TV with a controller sitting on the couch than on a laptop with a 15"-17" screen or a 24" monitor. Also a lot of titles are not available for PCs, my favorite game is Naruto Storm 2 and I play it only for the online ranked matches. PCs will always offer better graphics but this does not always translate into better gaming experience. In that regard it does make sense to own an XBOX or PS3. Bottom line is you prefer PCs and many other people do but that doesnt mean others will not be satisfied with their game consoles.

    I understand why you dont use your BR, I dont use mine either and its built in my home-theater system I seriously never use it, I can watch movies downloaded from the computer(connected to TV) why even bother with BR.

    XBOX LIVE is definitely worth it, Im paying for it lol. But not everyone is willing to spend money on this type of subscription.
