Xbox 360 Vs PS3

Jon Andersen 06/06/2010 91

 Xbox-360-Vs-PS3E3 is in the line for another round of applause and a zombie-fest of eager people. This time, things are stacking up in a positive direction due to the ever-so-popular rivalry of PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360. The latest breakout chart is all about the pricey price factor among the two rivals, as both of them dropped their rates and users have a wider option of choosing among the two consoles.

The price chart lets you build your own rough sketch of both consoles in the long run. Maybe you think paying $4 a month to play games through Xbox Live is a crime, so you can switch to PS3. You want one thing; while someone else wants a piece of something else. Hence each person is driven by his/her own preferences.

A small point of contemplation;

- The PS3 has more user friendly aspects as compared to Xbox 360. You have a PS3; you can get along by attaching its Hard disk to your laptop or any other compatible device. But if you have an Xbox 360, then you are just bound to it for al; eternity.
- The PS3 supports the 802.11b/g wireless chip, but Xbox 360 gained the edge through their 802.11n specs.
- The PS3 generates higher degree of visuals through the HDMI cable and the 1.3a specs, whereas Xbox 360 is sitting low through the 1.2 specs.

There are tons of other features on hardware level, for you to compare but in the end, it all lies down on your shoulders. Either you want to go with Xbox 360 or the PS3, its up to you and it wont matter much, but the companies are really relying on some high sales.

    Xbox Live is $50 not $40. PS3 gives you a free Blu-ray Disc player free WIFI free online web browser the best games plus the most REAL exclusive free USB charger and more..

  2. Roger 06/06/2010 at 12:36 PM -

    PS3 is the best option. With Killzone 3, Infamous 2 and Little Big Planet 2 all being announced by Sony prior to E3, this is looking to be one hell of an E3 for Sony.

    Xbox Live does not cost $40 a month, its for the year and well worth if you ask me, many features not available on the psn. HDMI 1.3 specs does not generate higher visuals, the advantage is uncompressed sound.

    Ps3 is better i already have a 360 but gettin a ps3 soon

  5. chaz 06/15/2010 at 4:30 PM -

    i say get a ps3. even though they have a new slim 360 with wi fi you still need to pay.

  6. ryan 07/28/2010 at 10:02 PM -

    360 is better. it might cost money to play online but it is way better than ps3 online it lags less better hosts and it keeps up on people beating the system and doing things. hdmi doesnt matter it still project plenty good enough picture and the feel of it just womps ps3s

  7. Tony 08/02/2010 at 9:28 AM -

    Look people who keep commenting on the price of Xbox Live. The writer said it’s $4 a month. You keep saying it’s $50 for a year not $40. News flash! There are twelve months in a year so $50 over twelve months is $4.17 a month so quit whining about it and think next time.

    The PS3 is better then the 360 because the disks hold way more memory, an example is the 4 disks on FF13 that the 360 needs against the 1 that the ps3 needs. Blue ray doesnt scatch as easy and when it does it still works. The xbox blends its games if you touch it wrong while it’s on. The 360 also gets red ringed and over heats. I’ve had a ps3 longer then my xbox and ive went through 3 xbox’s and im still on my first ps3. i use the ps3 more. the free internet is amazing if you don’t have crappy internet. if you cant afford good internet then why afford xbox live? ps3′s wi fi is much better and it is free. the only down side about the ps3 is that more games are for the x box, but at the same time more games for the ps3. most new releases are coming out for ps3 only such as little big planet 2 and FF14. The ps3 controllers also keep a greater charge and work at greater distances. ps3 controllers fully charge in less then an hour. my 360 controllers take around 4 hours, and i cant play the 360 while they’;re charging. PS3 is the logical way to go.

    PS3 is way better considering the graphics and that the Xbox does not have blu-ray and that the PS3 has the controlers that look way cooler

  10. jay 08/16/2010 at 7:19 AM -

    ok, so yes you can play the x box while the controllers are charging. versus the playstation who gives you short cords to charge so you cant sit way back while its charging. 2nd is i have heard of so many playstations getting the red screen of death. altho ps3 has the blu ray x box has way more games. plus xbox will be coming out with another model that will feature a blu ray player. but i say to each their own and let bygons be bygons.

    PS3 Is better than XBOX 360. PS3 supports 1080p HD, XBOX 360 doesn’t. PS3 is the only console that got 250 GB memory. It is 1 hard disk of a normal computer for god’s sake! It got easier controller than XBOX 360. I prefer PS3. It is better. Also it got Blu-Ray player build in! XBOX 360 doesn’t got it! A Blu-Ray player costs about 200$-300$. You save 200$-300$ ! Also a hard disk of 250 GB costs 150$ or more! Instead paying 450$, you pay 300$ and you got gaming experience, wi-fi, blu ray and much more. So PS3 is best.

  12. Harry 08/22/2010 at 3:51 PM -

    Xbox 360 is way better. There is a reason you pay for live on 360.. because its better. There is better / wider verity of games on 360, controllers are much nicer to hold and the new 360 is very cheap for 250gb.

  13. POWA.P 08/25/2010 at 3:51 PM -

    hey guy screw the ps3 and the xbox360 why dont you just set a powerful pc

  18. Tek 08/29/2010 at 10:46 AM -

    Alright. I’m sick of ‘Console Wars’. I have an Xbox 360, and I enjoy it. I play my friends PS3 almost every day and I’ve seen all of its features and graphics and what not. Both consoles have their pros and cons, but I think that if I’m having a good time playing a video game, it really doesn’t matter what system I’m playing it on. The graphics on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 aren’t THAT different. That’s just MY opinion.

  19. slim 08/29/2010 at 12:30 PM -

    so the new xbox has free wi-fy a blu-ray player more games,less expesive xbox live and if not free,and on top of that kinect which is wireless gaming xbox just smoked the ps3

  20. slim 08/29/2010 at 1:03 PM -

    all my favorite games are coming out on the xbox like gears of war 3, halo reach,call of duty black ops,fear 3 (I know fear 3 and call of duty black ops are on the ps3 too)I don,t care about the ps3,s infamous 2 and killzone 3.I forgot to mention the new xbox 250 gb hard drive in my last comment.

  21. Ryan 08/29/2010 at 4:51 PM -

    Roger, youre one of those dumbass ignorant blacks thats just love ps3 cause you can play your collection of stolen garbage ass ps2 games. Xbox360 is clearly the better choice because of its game library and easier user interface. xbox360 is cheaper and a much better system for the user.

  22. Jashawn 09/04/2010 at 3:53 AM -

    No offence, xbox is better.
    Xbox has better graphics card
    HDMI specs difference? 0.1!!!
    Pay for xbox live? It is for the servers!!!! Ps3 has crappy online gaming, it crashes :P
    Xbox better wireless specs
    You can use up to 16 gigs of Usb memory to transfer your xbox data to pc (according to an update)
    Also the last and not the least: xbox has better games.

    Ps3
    Better cpu performance
    Blu ray:)

  23. samas 09/05/2010 at 12:48 AM -

    Get xbox 360 slim, built in wifi 802.11n, better GPU so when you compare the same game on xbox and ps3 it looks better on xbox, HDMI doesn’t matter unless you like to brag about a newer version of it which performs no different, xbox can display in 1080p HD anyway with component cable. It has better controllers that are easier to hold and use and they last longer and can be recharged with charge kit so shut up morons who go on about paying for loads of batteries. Better exclusive games, and 250GB HDD for storing them all. PS3 may have some stuff the same but I agree the new 360 slim has smoked it all. Also blu-ray doesn’t count for much on dual console games, it hasn’t be properly utilized yet and no manufacturers can be bothered making games look better for ps3 blu-ray so they just leave them as they are. So much for blu-ray making them look better.

  24. Nothingelsematters 09/07/2010 at 9:53 AM -

    well to all whiners, both consoles are good. i got both and I like the ps3 better, why?
    Well people keeps saying the 360 dash is better? Well I think its just a matter of getting used to. I was used to the ps3s and hated 360s but when I got into the 360s it was good also.

    The ones saying 360 will get a blu ray player are dumb. They wont release a blueray reader for games because then all stores have to have both DVD and BlueRay versions of all games. That wont happen, they might release a BD for movies and mabe just a few games, else people who knows nothing will buy the wrong kind of games.

    Also what I love about the PS3 is that I can plug in any 2.5″ harddrive in it, i currently got a 320GB harddrive in my ps3 but also I got an external USB 360GB harddrive.

    You can plug allmost all USB devices in your PS3, myself uses a logitech forcefeedback steering sheel that is for PC without any troubble in my PS3. Also i can use any keyboard or mouse with usb, I can use any flashpen or USB harddrive formated in FAT32 on my PS3. Beat that lousy overpriced 16GB USB crap for 360. I can with ease make a complete backup on my entire PS3 with my USB harddrive.

    My also to the ones who loves the 360 controller, I got a madcats PC usb controller that looks exactly like a 360 controller an im using it in my PS3 without any problems. Also my Ps3 got bluetooth and the 360 aint got that.

    So pros about PS3 is, bluray, all USB PC controllers and harddrives and USB flashpens works. i can change to a 1TB 2.5″ harddrive if I want, show me that on 360. Also blutooth and keyboard and mouse support. Free online.

    360 pros, um some say better live but its all about taste and it cost money.
    Um more games and a few good games only for 360. That I can live without.
    Um no more pros… Only DVD player not as good HDMI, um no support for cheep flashsticks and normal PC USB harddrives. Expensive harddrive expansions not near the PS3s 1TB internal that is possible, dont forget the PS3s support for USB harddrive wich means 2TB EXTERNAL STORAGE!

    Its insane how crappy the support for 3rd party equipment is for the 360 only expensive stuff and nothing that works on PC. Show me your easy to make 100GB+ backups of your 360 harddrives… i got a 100GB full backup on my PC and USB harddrive of my entire PS3.

    put the 360 up your arses fanboys its outdated and to Microsoft strict, nothing is nice about it. Not even that cheep compared to PS3 anymore.

    ill continue to use my PS3 as main system and ill put a 1TB drive in it soon for far less then a 120GB expansion for my old 360.

  25. FunkyGroovy 09/07/2010 at 9:16 PM -

    The Xbox 360 is about to be 60$ a year.

  26. Kirk 09/07/2010 at 10:41 PM -

    i think everyone needs to stop debating both systems are great neither is better they just have different strenghts so the one that is good for u all depends on the type of gamer u are

  27. mike 09/09/2010 at 12:49 PM -

    to the person who said x box will soon get a blue ray player your maybe the dumbest person i know. SONY own the rights to the blue ray which means xox360 never get blue ray thtas just facts x box does not have better graphics just bettter detail as of now becuase of thier cpu and gpu wprking togther ps3 has a btter cpu buit not a gpu. a gpu controls the color , white and dark shades which in all can give better detail. Ps3 cpu is very complicated whih had 1 core and 5 or 7 sub cores that the main cures bounces feeds too. The xbox howver has 3 or 4 cored which allow game developers to make more games for the xbox because its just the more easier to make for the x box. Howver exclusive games like uncharted 2 really shows the true potential of the ps3 grhpics if the develpers really wanted to take the time and spend the more money to make it quality. uncharted is probally the best grpaics games out there right now. Valve (makeers of counterstricke etc) have stated in the past they they would never make any games for the ps3 because the time and the amount of money it takes to make the game its juts not worth it becuase its istoo complicated. however this year they have changed thier mind ps3 is coming back and coming back strong and honestly i do bielive ps3 in all is a way better system i had a xbox 360 and ya x box live may be a lil better online but its not worth it at all. you pay for this and when u get it u have to pay for everything else inside box live there are hardly any free stuff on xbox which is unreal. The main thing about the ps3 is that it comes with ablueray player which alone costs 200-300 bux and it alwyas game with wifi. some people will say will that was the past now xbox slim is out which is way beeter than before. ok given maybe so ur telling me xbox lovres are so happy they are getting wifi just now? lol wowww sad everything has wifi now wifi is probally the simpliest thing u can put into the system which they just did now 5-6 later? i know people will also say will the red ring of death is gone that the system knows when its overheating so it turns off preventing it from getting the red ring of death LMFAO thtas a joke soooo lets say ur playing ur fav game or online or even a clan match u want ur system to turn off ? lol ok if thtas what u want x box is a company that puts out a half ass system who only wants money in all ps3 is a better systems with better games coming out :)

    Who the “F” cares about a blu-ray player. I haven’t rented or bought an actual DVD/Blu-Ray in years. Have you Heard of NetFlix, which, btw can be 1080P.. Oh and Mike your an Idiot. Late

  29. ecal 09/12/2010 at 3:06 PM -

    xbox 360 have better grapic because she have 4x anti aliasing and ps3 dont have.btw ps3 still is no 1 console because tecnology and better hardware.for me both console is same.

    XBOX 360 OWNS THE PS3 SO GET A LIFE PWNED!

  31. fred 09/14/2010 at 9:19 PM -

    wooooooooooowoowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowwoowo x box is awsome awsome go halo. sony can stick ps3 up the @#$%^%# ass

  32. John 09/22/2010 at 12:29 PM -

    Interesting debate. I’ve been playing games since before many of you were even born. Started with Pong, Asteroids and Space Invaders. Had the first Atari that came out. Including the Intellivision and most consoles that have come out since then. I work in the Visual Effects industry and create 3D CGI for both games and film. I have owned both XBOX 360 and now have the PS3 and am sticking with it. It’s a much better, quality system in many ways, which have already been described in prior comments. Really, the only thing XBOX has over the PS is HALO and few more games. Once the PS3 or 4 comes out with what will be the “HALO Killer” the XBOX will be left in the dust. It seems as well that the XBOX is the more “trendy” system to own, and IMO is bought by a younger crowd who could really care less about quality, and possibly have parents who don’t mind footing the internet costs. Those who work in the gaming industry are already discussing the fact that Miscrosoft will be looking at some serious competition problems, which is already starting to happen. Earth to Bill Gates, you have a problem.

  33. PS3 Guru 09/23/2010 at 8:13 AM -

    i do not think that microsoft will ever pay sony to use the blu ray disc drive i mean why would you the compitition to use their hardware

  34. reiilly 09/29/2010 at 5:48 PM -

    the biggest problem with ps3 is they forgot it was about playing games not watching films on blueray bullcrap and a control pad that can only be worked if your from district 9

  35. hanzo 09/30/2010 at 1:54 AM -

    blue ray or not rhe key is cheap games to play sofar of the 2 console X360 will let you play knock-off(if you know what i mean)

  36. PS3 Boiii 10/01/2010 at 6:32 AM -

    PS3 is way better than the wackbox 360!!!! we got better HD graphics 3D!!!!! Playstation move!!!!! FREE online!!!! bluetooth headsets!!!!! and besides microsoft is a bunch of copy cats everything someone comes out with they TRY!!!! to make it better ex: ipod(zune), PS(xbox) and so on and so forth 360 is the worst thing since 9/11

  37. Sara 10/05/2010 at 3:06 AM -

    Alright, the 9/11 reference was just tacky.

  38. Orangatang 10/08/2010 at 10:50 PM -

    What i can tell is that you all are a bunch of F@&$ing idiots. It’s Just a god damn console and there just video games. Who care which is better they both play video games which is nothing NEW. Why did you pick that particular console, because they play games that you like anything new…NO. Let people have there own opinions about why and what consoles they like. It’s just an opinion.

  39. John 10/12/2010 at 2:21 AM -

    the xbox is way better, the games on the PS3 are nowhere near the level of the xbox’s, and the PS3 focuses way too much on other things and not the games, it’s games don’t stack up to the xbox’s, halo beats anything on the PS3, and Halo Reach, will never be defeated

  40. 757 nigga 10/12/2010 at 12:28 PM -

    both systems are nice…like anything electronic they both have pros and cons…which system u buy is jus going to depend on your own personal preferences….either way i think u get wat u pay for

  41. play360 10/13/2010 at 4:04 PM -

    Both consoles are good but the controller matters to me and the playstation 3 controller fits in my hands and the controller gives better controle in shooting games. Even thoough the 360 has a longer battery life you have to replace it with brand new batteries and that annoyed me with that issue. Id ammit that I prefer the 360′s games but there wernt too many games that was totally excluded from ps3 and microsoft. If a person wanted to be starting out with a brand new game system then I suggest the 360 because it is easy to learn but the ps3 is still favoritable in my taste… anyway the choice is truely yours and I don’t want to be the judge of what you want to buy so pick the one that’s more comfortable for you.

  42. talha 10/14/2010 at 1:56 AM -

    xbox 360 is better than everyon

  43. SeamusBlack 10/14/2010 at 5:49 AM -

    I am considering one of these consoles as my 1st video game system since the first Xbox. I was a huge Halo2 fan and now I am into Call of Duty4 on the PC. I think I am leaning toward the PS3 though because of its blu-ray player and free multiplayer. The only game I care about is CoD so the game selection on Xbox just doesn’t matter to me. It sounds like John seems to have the most credibility in this thread when he states that Xbox is bought by the younger crowd who doesn’t care. Because most of you supporting the Xbox respond with cussing and have names like 757Nigga… so gangsta! Anyway, you’ve all convinced me. going with PS3!

  44. Owner69 10/14/2010 at 9:29 AM -

    For all of you Junk Box 360 lovers your all dumb for saying that the 360 will be getting Blue ray. And if they do it just mean that are copy cats because XBox is running out of ideas.

  45. reilly 10/19/2010 at 2:50 PM -

    had ps3 for 4 years complete load of balls loading time shit online play terrible control pads even worse fifa 11 looks like ps2 graphics completely pissed of ps3 owner lol

  46. weinerr 10/27/2010 at 9:46 PM -

    brother has a ps3, it broke within the first 3 months..he sent it out, got it back was still broken, sent it back AGAIN and still hasn’t gotten it back.

    I guess customer service isn’t important? LOL

    360 also has wayyy better games than the ps3…is that a joke? 360 keeps putting out huge titles 3/3 in the past 3 months..and there’s still more on the way.

    You guys are right, it has a blu-ray player…which is all its used for. One of the cheapest blu-ray on the market…sick selling point.

    and to all you ps3 dick riders – don’t bother tryin to flame me i stumbled across this website…probably wont ever find my way back to it.

  47. tysonjr13 11/01/2010 at 7:20 AM -

    the xbox 360 is better, ps3 like to freeze alot, its really hapens while on the web. Ps3 also lags alot and isnt so fun…..xbox memberships is worth the money and y not, if u want the best of ps3 u stioll have 2 pay for “Playstation Plus” so y not just get xbox and HD is super amazing on xbox live………….plus with xbox u get HD cords with it, but with playstation u got to pay…………..there is only one thing i like and hate about the ps3………….Like: Blu-Ray (still whats the point when u cant pay for blu-ray movies)………Dislike: the analogs r to close togetther (ps3 is for children hands and there is no thumb room)…………….so ppl that r reading this get an xbox 360 is for your sake………

  48. spicey master 11/07/2010 at 10:42 PM -

    ok i know my input dont matter but y pay more for bluray movies and i bought a game system for playing games so f the bluray thats not an option to use ps3 users and yes xbox has everything that ps3 does like headsets and stuff and i mean yea halos about over but im srry i liked the ps2 more then the orginal xbox but other wise the 360 blows everything else and i mean and yea i mean god of war is good but we have the same game for the xbox its called dantes inferno same thing if anything a better storyline and im srry but the graphics are not that much better and when i buy a game system i dont want all these other features my dam computer or tv does for me its just extra waste of space and the memory and things to and the xbox controller is more comfoatble in my hands, also yea it might cost money to play nline but i played codmw2 on both sytems on xbox intense just straight up awesome amzing gmaing ps3 it was so boring i was just wondering how such an awesome game could be wasted on such a system but eiher way ps3 is good but xbox has the edge and my vote

  49. Broke Irishman 11/09/2010 at 2:56 PM -

    Wow…. I would really like to thank all of the prepubescent 360 fan boys for clearing up this issue for me. I have several friends with 360′s and every time I play online with them, they always have to immediately mute all of the whining soprano voices coming through. I used to own a PS3 but the drive failed and I traded it in for a Wii for my wife, but I really want to get back in REAL gaming again, so I’m going with another PS3. When the average comment in support of 360 has one comma for a whole paragraph and the user is named “weiner” or “spicey master” (really, grow up and learn to spell while you’re at it) it makes it an easy decision. To all the PS3 supporters, I’ll see you online.

  50. Gilbert 11/12/2010 at 10:27 AM -

    @Mike Just so you know Sony does not own the rights to Blu-Ray Blu-Ray was developed by the Blu-Ray Disc Association which Sony just happens to be a member of I think examples of other companies that are apart of the Blu-Ray Disc Association are Panasonic, Disney, Apple, Dell. Also the consoles GPU does not just control color, the GPU is what renders that rich 3D environment by performing billions of mathematical calculations per second to render polygons the building blocks of 3D Models. The PS3 has an 8 core cell processor(CPU) while the XBox 360 has a Triple core CPU that supports hyper threading mean each core can handle two instruction sets at the same time with each core clocked at 3.2 GHz. The CPU performs instruction sets to tell the rest of the system how to operate. Its easier to develop games for the XBox 360 due to better development tools Microsofts Visual Studio.Net compared to the buggy PS3 compiler/debugger and Microsofts DirectX set of API’s compared to OpenGL on the PS3 thats why its called the XBox to show the public the console is based off of DirectX technology.

  51. D-man 11/16/2010 at 6:49 AM -

    Yall are all stupid. The ps1 and and regular x box are way better then the 360 and ps3! No doubt about it.

  52. Andrew 11/16/2010 at 8:01 AM -

    Bottom Line Xbox360 came out over 1 year before PS3, Do the math by years makes PS3 top sales. I just think Xbox360 people are bullheaded, and kind of retarded for paying $60 a year for live to play online.. and its bull that xbox fans says live is better they just dont want to say they are retarded for paying to play..I have a friend had a Xbox 360 and went out and picked up a PS3 because after he played my PS3 he thinks its a great console and its free to play online … So 360 feel stuck because they already have a 360 and dont have a open mind..I make a good income and i could buy a 360 also, but i never would because why??? 360 is no better and live is no better …..before i would pay $60 a year for live I would donate $60 bucks to the poor. or flush it down the toilet because that what 360 live fans do.

  53. To D-Men 11/17/2010 at 3:39 PM -

    Dude ps3 and the xbox 360 are waaaaaayyyyy better then any old consel like the ps1 or xbox

  54. Sway 11/18/2010 at 8:21 AM -

    Andrew ur focus is on the payment to play live. I think the focus should be on the graphics. Cause we can criticize what people decide to spend their money on all day. Can u download a VARIETY of things from PS3 online?

    You actually can, its just probably not as much as the 360, but thats the way it should be because xbox users have to pay for online. SO it should be better. Truth of the matter is that when you have an HDMI connection they are both the same. Xbox is better in graphics when both are played on a none HD connection.

    The Ps3 is a better console than the Xbox 360.

  60. jon 11/23/2010 at 10:16 PM -

    in my opinion i think id choose whichever system that i think gives me more bang for my buck. i chose a ps3 because i liked the fact that online gaming was free, it already had built in wifi (bought it before the new xbox 360 came out), has a bluray disc drive i knew i would be using due to the growing popularity with movies, and supports tons of multimedia formats. i also liked the idea i can also back up pictures, videos/movies, and music on it in case my computer crashes, which it did, and without my ps3 i wouldnt have saved my old dogs photos after she has died. and i also consider the little things like how the controllers are quick and easy to recharge (no batteries needed), i can use just about any bluetooth mic for chatting, and how after you buy the system, your good to go to do what you want because: there is no fee i have to pay for online gaming (xbox live $50 or $60 a year), i dont have to buy a wireless adapter and i like to stay cable-free (xbox 360 wireless adapter $100). lastly, what i like about it is how easy and smart it is to setup. and by smart i mean for example: im taking my ps3 over to a friends house, and i hook up the ps3, if i hold down the power button for a few seconds until it beeps, it auto adjusts the resolution the fits best with the television, and you can have it auto detect the audio quality. so for me all these big and little ‘things’ the ps3 has is why i bought it because its a bang for my buck. majorly its all down to personal preference.

    a ps3 is way better than a xbox360 like holly shit you can get more games you can also get grand theft atuo iv and oh hell you can get dj hero

    I have a ps3, it just got some problem were it cant read the disk and its happening to them all i used to love the ps3 and hate the xbox. Now i have to face the facts and get an ok system instead of a great system :/ If only sony could fix this.

  63. therealdealoneal(PS3) 11/29/2010 at 5:56 PM -

    i read this whole page and didnt here much about ps3 games that beat xbox games or xbox games that doesnt beat ps3 games like god of war series(best games ever created), uncharted(BA), resistance (bettr then gears of war), ratchet and clank(the only ppl who call this game gay are ppl who have never sat down and played it for more than 50 seconds), and i have yet to play killzone but im sure its good. xbox 360 has got left 4 dead(good game but doesnt beat any of ps3 games), halo(is ok. i mean come on your some guy in a metal suit who likes boys and can jump 1 mile in the air and it takes 500 shots to kill anything even those little triangle alien thing BS its just gets to much hype) and last 1 yea xbox only has 3 games over ps3 which isnt really over ps3 but its gears of war(its good but not that good). i admit that if these games were for ps3 id probably get em but the fact is ps3 games are bettr and thats it.

  64. therealdealoneal(PS3) 11/29/2010 at 6:03 PM -

    Ok…… for 299.99 you get Blu- ray player, 120gb hdd, wireless bluetooth controller, and have the best of everything pretty much a freakin media server. And who wants to pay to play online?

    XBOX on the other hand…. 299.99 for the new 250 gig system. Last i checked unless you buy and additional rechargeable battery pack AA’s get expensive. not to mention earlier 360′s had an “external Blu-ray drive” price was 179.99, 50.00 for a year to Xbox live and basically for around 700.00 you have a ps3! THE ONLY BUMMER IS PS3 DONT HAVE HALO oh well. me and my buddy bought our systems at the same time mine being a ps3 his being a 360 pro. he went through 3 red rings, then payed and bought an elite and went throught 2 red rings and now he bought a slim….im still on my first ps3 and not 1 problem to report. my 2 y/o can get a hold of the games and they still work. as for his xbox heavan forbid you get a fingerprint on it or (Disc unreadable). Hell my ps2 release slim is sitting in my 4 y/o room as a dvd player stays on all night every night and it still works…. give me than from xbox and we will talk!

    I think I can solve the debate here. Xbox 360 is wonderful system that allows you to play a wide array of games and also has many features. The PS3 is also a wonderful system that allows you to play a wide array of games and also has many features. I like the Xbox because their appears to be more games available, and when I go to gamestop I can find more used games for Xbox 360. What I like about the PS3 is that there are more mature players playing on the online network, and that is nice after listening to 10 year olds on Halo. So to conclude, the Xbox 360 and the PS3 should not be argued against. Save up some money and buy the system you don’t own. Then buy used games, because it makes better business sense to buy used. It’s cheaper, and by the time you buy it you will know if it is really worth the money. For those of you who would say buying both systems is crazy, you should think of all the money you probably are wasting on things you don’t get to keep forever.

  69. DENNIS TALIELLO 12/06/2010 at 11:18 AM -

    FIRST I OWNED AN XBOX 360, SOLD IT THEN BOUGHT A PS3 WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT FOR $599 PLUS TAX. ABOUT A MONTH AFTER I BOUGHT MY PS3 I SOLD IT AND WENT BACK TO XBOX 360…and here is my reasons why…

    GAME AVAILABILITY:
    After purchasing a PS3 2 years ago I quickly found out that more than half the games I was playing on Xbox 360 were not available on PS3…Saints Row, Battlestation Midway and Pacific, Forza 2, Gears of War, OVER G Fighters etc and I was utterly disappointed. I don’t even want to get into the availability of strategy games and lack there of such on PS3.

    CONTROLLERS:
    PS 3 CONS:

    I was still willing to give the PS3 a chance but as I was playing I found myself running out of juice on the controllers and I was only provided with a very short USB cable, so I literally had to sit very close to my 42″ LCD tv…making myself nautious as I was playing.

    I also quickly found out that I had to reset my PS3 console everytime my controller ran out of battery because it the system would not instantly recognize it and turn it back on with the USB charger plugged in. I suppose buying a longer cable from The Source would solve that problem…

    The Ps3 controllers are based on the originally Playstation 1. That’s rubbish and not innovative at all if you ask me. The Xbox 360 controllers are contoured for proper holding, the trigger buttons are set so your fingers will not slip off of them and they are heavier with user friendly buttons labelled ABCD making navigation and special moves easier to understand and do in certain games.

    ONLINE PLAY:
    PS 3 CONS: Shortly after purchasing my PS3 I tried playing my PS3 online and got nothing but lag lag lag and more lag and dropped connections…keep in my mind I had the fastest cable internet package at the time and I still do. Even though I was paying for XBOX Live Gold prior to this I never had this problem once on my 360. I was personally not a fan of the Playstation Network or the new Home…it was not very user friendly, and if any of you ever used MSN or navigating around your desktop, you will know what I mean by user friendly…because this was definitely not it. PS3 Game play…enormous and time consuming game updates and system updates taking place on a daily basis it seemed like…and my understanding is that this is still the case.

    GRAPHICS AND THE BLUE RAY:
    I am reading a lot of reviews on how PS3 graphics are better….having owned both I sincerely did not find that to be the case….to me –the graphics quality between the 2 is barely noticeable however there are some Xbox 360 that have really amazing graphics…like Forza 3. Having a 1080P TV is only good if you are watching Blue Rays…and not necessarily for game playing…because not all games are 1080P compatible.

    PS 3 has a Blue Ray DVD Player built in…tech experts are saying that the blue ray dvd player built inside the PS3 has quality issues, as in you shouldn’t exclusively use it as a Blue Ray DVD player as it may malfunction after a while. I’ve noticed that my unit would get extremely hot while watching a Blue Ray DVD and…..personally…who cares…most of the movies are stored online nowadays anyways…whether you are downloading or you are subscribed to Netflix..etc…to me…. the Blue Ray DVD player is a dying sort as well…

    I also want to disqualify some myths about owning an Xbox 360 and the costs associated with it. My response is in the red….I found the following text on another website posed by a gentleman asking….

    Q. Xbox360 vs PS3. Which is better?
    A. Both same thing, PS3 is cheaper. All you need to know. (Xbox 360 Elite 250gb and PS3 160gb are both $299.00)

    For in-depth, keep reading. Both 360 and PS3 are the same price initially without add ons, remember that.

    —————
    360:
    $100 – Wifi Adapter (new Elite console comes with it…I prefer Ethernet cable)
    $50 a year – Online Gaming (there is many reasons why it’s worth it including many features, no lag and easy to use interface)
    $30 – Charge controller (buy 40 batteries for $11.99 at Costco and they will last you for many months maybe even years or use the stock controller and battery pack)
    $20 – Intercooling fan (absolutely no need for it)
    $100 – HD DVD (discontinued feature)
    None – Internet Broswer

    PS3:
    Free – Built in Wifi (dropped connections to and from my brand new router)
    Free – Online Gaming (lag lag lag and more lag)
    Free – USB to charge controller (short cable, controllers not responding to units)
    Free – Built in Fan (my PS3 was still extremely hot)
    Free – Blu-Ray Player (it’s all about online movies today and you can get them at 1080p picture quality)
    Free – Internet Browser

    Alright so 1st id like to say the ps3 is better but, the 360 does have some advantages.

    Ps3 upsides: much bigger hard drive up to 250gb, blu ray + the games r blu ray, free internet, better layout in my opinion, better technology used has 8 core processor, but main one: only.5% of ps3′s have been sent back to the factory for defects, oh and I personally liike the controllers better, they last longer (the charge does), way lighter, connected to the ps3 through bluetooth and have a better layout. And has a dvd player

    Ps3 downsides: internet crashes more but its not even bad, less games but the games that are good are on the ps3

    360 upsides: more games, better internet

    360 downsides: red ray player which is way worse than blue ray, heavy controllers that use AA batteries, bad graphics..well not bad, but not near as good as ps3, have to pay for internet, red ring, no dvd player, etc. Biggest downside was at least for the first 2 years the xbox had 33% of them returned because of defects, that’s a TON compared to ps3′s 0.5%

  71. chris 12/06/2010 at 5:16 PM -

    Oh plus you can just buy a longer cable for the usb charger, I have like a 20 ft. Usb cord charger and I got it for like $15, so don’t complain about a short usb cord, or u can just charge it when your not playing the ps3.. u can even charge it on your computer., plus if its fully charged it lasts me at least a full day. So its really not a big deal, and I have never had the router drop connections, just psn network will but not too often,

  72. j11 12/13/2010 at 6:26 PM -

    people its the owners opinion think about it the ps3 and xbox 360 have in common well both play games the prices r getting closer . so wut xbox live costs , psn dont its up to u .

  73. Some dude 12/13/2010 at 8:58 PM -

    My sega dreamcast > your xbox 360 and PS3 so i win

  74. Nathaniel 12/14/2010 at 10:28 AM -

    I would say the xbox 360 is better to have because it is easier to own rather then the ps3. REASONS: The xbox 360 does have less features then the ps3 but that is why it does not lag as much in online play. More games are coming out on the ps3 that are good but the loading process takes more time then on an xbox 360 and I know because I have had both brand new and tested this theory. Finally when both systems brake I found it easier to fix my 360 then the ps3. I bought two ps3s because I live in a gaming house. but when the ps3 got a yellow light on the power button, I tried to fix it on my own and it was difficult because I did not know what to do and when I looked on the internet for a solution I only realized that I did not have the equipment to get it running right again. I decided to move my hard drive from the first ps3 to the second which did not work because the second system had to delete all the files from the first hard drive. I would not have cared so much except I had pictures, music, videos, game files on there and i did not have a computer to move them to or any other storage device.

  75. omae 12/23/2010 at 11:04 AM -

    ps3 and xbox360 have very good exclusvies.. for ps3 infamous2, gran turismo 5.. for xbox360,halo reach, gears of 3…plenty of stuff for both. i got both and yes xbox is expensiver but i do not lagg on my ps3, as of promised by sony they will have same connection strength as xbox on march 2011. there fore the ps3 has the better future.

  76. DEV 12/23/2010 at 10:39 PM -

    It doesn’t matter which system you have they are equal in their own right. You have people that are faithful to playstation since it came out in the 90′s and then you have faithful xbox’ers since it came out. It’s not about which system is better but a matter of which system you preferr. You are there to have a good time and kick some butt from time to time. GAME ON!!!!!!!

  77. r0bm2k 12/31/2010 at 8:08 PM -

    I see it like this……PS3 is way better then 360 in every way…….for the starters…..xbox live…..is mainly for the newbies cus all people are doing is paying for a service to put everything in order for them and make it look good as in “giving it a theme” half the stuff offered on xbox live are ON WIRELESS PHONES 3G/4G smart phones…..people claim xbox games mainly are PC ports ok????? so what does that say??? that microsoft charges you lots of money to just have a small PC hooked up to your tv ….for that you can just hook your LAPTOP up through HDMI….and bingo…you have a small FREE gaming/media server among other stuff……..people are not crying about paying for good service…….but are pissed that you can’t even go buy a $60 game you own and jump right in to action but you have to pay $50 just to go online for a year….what if you don’t want all the shiny stuff LIVE HAS TO OFFER but just like the games and want to play your friends??? no but microsoft would not have it that way so they throw old stuff on a service to make up for the cost……this is not new on microsoft’s end ….thats why they are loosing in every market ipod got them beat in music other smartphones got them beat…all the xbox360 is a NEWBIE COMPUTER….that you spend lots of money on ….for starters all upgrades you have to wait until microsoft releases them as in storage …250gb is not enuff for “the great services ” that people claim of live downloading movies among other stuff will fill up quick…they did not make 1tb and above drives for no reason hence why sony made it hot swap ….sony is not stupid like people think,,,microsoft had a year ahead of ps3 to get it right and so many 360′s released for different reasons…..and the fan boys dont’t get ……so it took ps3 to make a slim for xbox to make one???? it took people cryin about how sony got this and that for them to JUST NOW PUT WIRELESS AND HDMI in to consoles they sell??? once the dev’s get the ps3 hardware figured out it will be only a matter of time before microsoft releases another xbox line sony thinks for the LONG TERM as microsoft thinks forr the quick buck ……so let 360 fan boys lol now…..sony already had it won from the start ps2 was a threat to microsoft why you think the 360 came out before the PS3??? lololol think bout it….all the xbox360 is a small newbie computer that’s it……..but hell you don’t watch blu ray fine you dont play alot of games fine…..but sony gives you the best of both worlds for way half the price of a 360 and best of all….its ALL FREE…why would sony waste time and money to build something like live when most wireless devices already have it??? IPAD anybody??? among other stuff…i’m shocked that microsoft just dont install windows 7 on the 360 and charge for that as well….PS3= long term 360= short term…….sony is still milking PS2 sales until the DEVS get it right with the ps3..and when they do…we will see a 370….like when the devs made GOW for ps2……then months later we had a 360 hahahaha

  81. Hairykiller 01/18/2011 at 2:46 PM -

    Well guys to be honest, I personally like the ps3 better than xbox 360 and I think its the future console for the future life. Sure DVD is still popular right now but thats exactly what happened to vcd and vcr tapes. Back then they were popular, and then dvds came out. After a while, look right now I barely see any vcds or vcr tapes or even those big laser disks. This is going to happen to dvds when blu ray come out. Just wait and see in the next five years and then microsoft would have no choice either to trash their xboxes (like dreamcast for example) or to pay sony a bunch of money to get blu ray but I doubt it if sonys smart enough. The only thing that I think xbox is good at is their online service, kinect, avatars, and their gpu. http://gear.ign.com/articles/111/1116182p1.html check this out for the differences in the ps3 and xbox 360 consoles hardware and also i think some companies are defecting to multiple consoles such as the company of mass effect 2, portal 2 (on pc only for the first one), and bungie withdrew and became independent of microsoft so yeah :-) thats about it

  82. Hairykiller 01/18/2011 at 2:51 PM -

    Oh yeah also I forgot to mention, bluetooth all the way I love the headset and I can use it for my cell phone and ipod touch you can have up to 7 controllers at one ps3. Though left 4 dead and gears of war is awesome! I have to admit that but ps3 sure had caught up. btw ive seen people who said xbox had netflix, so does ps3 in the new update and also with 3d too. I played motorstorm in 3d and it was awesome same with black ops just to state my opinion I hate to see people getting angry and start a console war, rather than replying to people just state your opinion read other peoples posts and bam your done simple as that jeez btw have anyone took apart their ps3 yet, I did to my old ps3 after it died and I find some fascinating things in it you should try it for the ps3 and xbox.

  83. Dana 01/25/2011 at 5:10 AM -

    Xbox 360 is way better than ps3 because xbox has way more games than the ps3 and every game on xbox supports 1080p but ps3 only a couple games support 1080p and yeah that’s y xbox is better than ps3…

  84. Lima Man 01/25/2011 at 7:07 AM -

    Certinaly PlayStation 3 is way better than XBOX 360. They simply just released that upgrade of the xbox 360 slim which shows how desperate they are to match up to PS3′s amazing features. Lets see what has to come out of the new models. But for me in a PlayStation 3 vs Xbox 360 Slim comparison, I know for a fact the ps3 is the winner. But comparing PlayStation Network vs Xbox Live I prefer Xbox Live

  85. emilio figueira 01/26/2011 at 1:55 PM -

    i say xbox 360 because i like there games better and the controlls are less confusing. i can care less about free online or blue ray player.

  86. dog 02/11/2011 at 10:55 AM -

    i highly disagree xbox 360 is way better

  87. NOTtheROCK 03/03/2011 at 12:39 PM -

    I own both systems and the only thing XBox has that tops the PS3 is the Kinect, but even those games are mediocre at best. I had to add the hard drive to my XBox for $120 making its overall cost higher than the PS3, it cost to experience internet gameplay, and it can’t play BluRay or 3D BluRay disc. The only game XBox has over the PS3 is HALO.
