GamePro examines four recent multi-platform titles to determine which console has the better games -- PS3 or Xbox 360. What they discovered challenges the common wisdom that "Xbox 360 is better."
I was about to submit this but someone got in the bloody way! =P It's good to see that now it's impossible to make a duplicate story using the same link/story altogether since once you put the link source, you're blocked from the person who beat you to it. Anyway nice article..
waiting for fanboy warfare on this article
Eh, I didn't like it. Found it bled too much testosterone for me. But hey, good try and good method.
Herr Kuwabara. [When you try to submit the same story and someone beat you to it with the same link it will let you know who it is] The concrete conclusion that I took from this article is not that PlayStation is an excellent brand or has great ports coming out for it, but that the PS3 is affecting hearts and minds. We should bomb our enemies with crates of PS3's (with LBP pre-loaded) and see what happens. It's just an idea. 8D
uh oh. I have been saying it for quite a while if its not a fps or a racer ps3 controller feels better. I own both and i have played both extensively. 360 controller for me is a complete fiasco when it comes to fighting games. Tried playing MK3 on it and it was just terrible. How the hell do you want me to perform cool moves and fatalities on a joystick and the damn dpad seems to have webbed feet or something?
Above.... It's also better for sports games and action games... Basically Sony's stick is only better for fighters and puzzle games.
Either make the PS3 the lead and port over to 360 or have two separate teams dedicated to each console like Infinity Ward did with COD4. Developers have already discovered that it doesn't work well when you make the 360 version first and then try to port.
The x360 controller is made for FPS but not for fighting or 3rd person games. However the PS3 controller still is good to play FPS. I have no problem using the analog sticks for aiming in Resistance. When i played virtual fighter on x360. Trying to do combos is a pain in the ass with the positioning of the buttons. Its hard to use the index and middle finger on button pads for x360.
I disagree on the sports an action. I think ps3 controller edges out here as well especially on the sports.I have madden 08 on 360 and ps3(bought 360 version got ps3 version from a friend) and i can tell you it really only boils down to preference. The only advantage would be in the R2 being easier for running. On the other hand performing truck moves on the 360 controller where you have to push the right bumper and right stick is quite uncomfortable. A lot more comfortable using R1 and right stick. I am being very objective in saying this you have to admit the bumbers arent as comfortable as R1&R2 and triggers are more comfortable than R2&L2. All that rubbish about 360 controls being tighter is rubbish to me especially when i play both versions of games cus i don't notice any difference. I still get the same kills as quickly as i would using both controlers. In fps where you have to use sniper maybe but thats when you need to be extremely precise. Other rubbish is 360 controller is heavier i never knew controller weight had any effect on gameplay. I own a dualshock 3 and i gave it to my friend to play nba 2k8 with and he couldnt stop complaining about how heavy it was and i'm like wtf. Everyone has preference. I give 360 controller advantage on games where you are mostly pushing triggers e.g. racers and shooters. Games where you need more than triggers ps3 controller usually comes untop for me
I have to say I am amazed and impressed with the people commenting here today. Usually a biased article like this would have a war started by now, but other than a couple of people like power of green it seems quite civil. It's nice to see people just expressing there opinions and not shoving it down someone else's throat, like I prefer peer to peer networking because in a couple of years if I want to play a game I don't have to worry about dedicated servers, just if people still want to play.
Yeah, while seperating the comments into zones hasn't really solved the fanboyism problem, it has sort of motivated a few people to try and police themselves a wee bit. Great job, N4G :)
WOW i'm surprised that ps3 won
...considering the writer's comments didn't WARRANT a PS3 win. Completely bogus article, and a waste of time. This guy basically says there's little to no differences between the games he highlights, then finishes with "PlayStation 3 beats the Xbox 360 handily". He tries his best to hide it, but it's obvious he's a biased Sony fanboy.
He's trying to correct the imbalance created many moons ago by Gamespot when they compared games from a 3 day old console to one released a year ago. :P
GAME PRO said the PS3 was better!!! What a SOCKER!!! LOL (Sense the Sarcasim!) C'mon now, we all know Game Pro is in Bed with Sony and has always and will always be biased towards Sony. Article is useless.
Awe buck up buckaroo. Wipe those tears away and turn that frown upside down. Some people put way to much weight on reviewers and their opinions. Whenever the opinion differs from your own they are bias. It's just "their" opinion. Why do you let it bother you so?
The issue has never been about how easy the 360 can run PS3 ports, the Multi platform issue has to do with the PS3 having trouble with 360 ports. This guy's PS3 prefference has nothing to do with the issue nor does it have to do with many other games. Button mapping and DualShock prefference has nothing to do with the Multi platform problem, dedicated servers has nothing to do with Texture issues or frame rate problems. COD4 was developed for each platform from the ground up for the most part, the others had PS3 in mind" we already know the 360 can handle PS3 ports easily the issue is the PS3 handling 360 ports etc. DualShock doesn't solve theses issues, finding a few games doesn't get rid of the issue.
Power of Green you are like a cancer on this site. Im tired of reading your anti ps3 commenting. Instead of participating in healthy debate you seek out ps3 related articles and then proceed to denounce it as much as you can. You speak as though the 360 is the god of gaming and ignore the negatives. EVERY console has negatives, there never has nor there probably never will be a perfect console considering the differing tastes of the consumers and the type things we ask our consoles to do. I could go on all day about the qaulity of the 360 or the shovelware that gets released but for what? There is no point because you have your mind made up and arent open minded to others opinions. I really wish you wouldn't come in here with your overflowing testosterone and biased opinions...
I had the same problem with the article that you mentioned. In almost every category he mentioned, it was a close call between the systems or one had a single feature that was better. Concluding the article by saying that the PS3 "won handily" is completely incongruous with the points he made. I thought the conclusion seemed a little biased, but it doesn't mean with completely certainty that he is a Sony fanboy, just that he needs to write a better article that supports his conclusion.
3 out of 4 of those games have the best version on PC. PC FTW!
Anyone else sick of the media fueling the whole console war/fanboy BS?
It's getting very old.
It doesn't bother me from a debate standpoint. When people can debate like civilized human beings and not scream obscenities at each other because someone like Resistance and someone likes GOW you can get a lot of good view points. I get sick of constantly seeing dumb people on forums for the sake of trying to irritate someone because they like something different. I own both I like different things about both and I will continue to play both.
This issue was news in 2007.As of 2008 all the multiplats are equal,so its just down to your console of choice or your controller preference. articles like this are no longer needed
It's mainly for page views, advertising dollars pay the bills. More page views equal more long term advertisers, which of course equates to more revenue. Not to say that the site/magazine loses any credibility... but this is why they have these articles (with flamebait titles), we're all fascinated by competition etc. etc.
It'll never stop though.
Only people with small wieners fall into this kind of crap. And if you're passed puberty and still involved in console flame wars, grow up. Whatever happened to live and let live? Play what you enjoy and STFU. We're all gamers here. Some more than others. Why do people have to argue about what they *think* is better? As a gamer, I really don't give a rat's ass about a console's power, so long as it pumps out some great games and new experiences. I still go back and play retro games every once in a while -- once again, because power doesn't mean jack. It's obsolete the day you take it out of the box. The 360 may have its fair share of problems, but it does have some great games. There's plenty of other consoles from past generations that have been plagued with issues. It happens. Maybe not on such a broad scale as the 360's, but it's not a first. Regardless, I'm a gamer, first and foremost. I go where the games are. That said, I can also say that PS3 is shaping up to have some epic stuff. Even though I'm a 360 fan, I can admit this because I don't have to compensate for anything. It's video games. Remember that.
3.6 you deserve a medal seriously, at the top of n4g they should quote that
But the troll-on-troll action has died down recently. Maybe people are more comfortable with their individual choices or the trolls are quietly switching sides. Or maybe it's because I don't browse the Open Zone any more.
Your only sick when the article supports your fantasy worldview. This article is crap (because it doesnt inclue the whole library) -- and, the PS3 is a lie.
wageslave..."The PS3 is a lie"....great argument.
PS3 = LEAD sku from now on bots, just like the Sony CEO said.... get used to it hahahahahhahahahhahahah YOU CAN DISAGREE BUT PS3 WILL BE THE LEAD SKU FOR THE MAJORITY of companys starting now including Midway, Lucasarts, Epic GET OWNED BOTS BUHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA Did anyone notice the PS3 outsold the TURDbox again last week EVEN IN THE UNITED STATES of America(my homeland) HAHAHAHHAHHA Xbox 360 got nohing at GDC except a FAKE Goldeneye article and Gears of war 2 which everyone knew was coming, a ton of RROD articles and ....well nothing else buhahahahahhaahhahaha. Xbox 360 sales are TANKING why the PS3's get stronger every week. BOTS THE MGS4 BUNDLE IS COMING. BUHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA HHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA H AHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA Even though I have one(gamertag get shank d) I just love saying how big of a stinky TURD the Xbox 360 is BUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHHAA HAHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHA Halo Wars.... BUAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA I base saying almost ALL companys are going to the PS3 as the LEAD SKU from what a Sony CEO said days ago. Its true bots. The PS3 is worthy. Its winning everywhere. The 360 is already limping on its last leg with 250$ mainstream priced 360's and all Xbox 360 SKU's available ALL OVER my hometown of Tampa Florida.... one of the biggest in the U.S. and no one is buying the 360. I mean it should be seeling a lot more for the price it is and its games already being released. All the good Exclusives are Multiplatform or PS3 Exclusives except Gears 2 and Banjo 3 LMAO. Fable 2!!!! NO. YOU FAIL.
