One of the most infamous rivalries in console history surpassing even the SNES Geneseis rivalry, so who actually came out on top of this cut-throat rivalry?
PS3, flawless victory............ maybe not flawless but close, in the end it had too many awesome memorable games The early years of the PS3 were pretty bad, Sony did extremely well to turn it around "kinda" like what MS is doing now with the XB1
xbox was king early on but the last 4 or so years ms completely dropped the ball and sony rekt them
- Most diverse game library - Reliable hardware - Free online - PS Plus value - Best multimedia device - Best and cheapest blu-ray player (even today) - Most sales even releasing one year later than the 360 and costing almost twice as much for a year, while being more expensive the whole time I mean was there even a chance for the 360 winning last gen? However, kudos to MS for grabbing all that market share from Playstation last gen even if Sony made a mess with the ps3's late, expensive and stale game-wise launch, inevitably 'opening the gates to the enemy'.
I will admit PS3 had a strong grip in 2013 with a lot great titles. Xbox 360 came back like a ferocious lion in 2014 Fable Anniversary Halo Spartan Assault Rekoil Liberator Super Time Force Titanfall World of Tanks Max and the Cursed Brotherhood The Crew exclusive on Xbox 360 not PS3 Hands of Kul Warface Lococycle Fantasia Music Evolved Tropico 5 Forza Horizon Where were the PS3 titles? To all fans please don't say 2014 doesn't count because it does. 2015 Screamride Risk Goat Simulator Ori and the Blind Forest TombRaider MS continues to support Xbox 360 while Sony has given up on PS3.
Given up? ok Chief
Wtf are you talking about, listing exclusives doesn't mean sh*t, spartan assault ? Seriously ... terrible halo game.
The Last Of Us made an amazing farewell to the PS3. And made Naughty Dog level up from level 99.99 to level 100. ND should make an RPG game.
The Last of Us was the icing on the cake for me. Xbox 360 has some great games and unmatched multiplayer experiences but I'm a sucker for storyline and Naughty Dog delivered some of the best stories with the Uncharted series and The Last of Us.
The tenacity of the PS3! I enjoy the PS3 very very much. Uncharted 2 Among Thieves Dragon's Crown Ni No Kuni MS Gundam Battle Operation The Last of US Uncharted 3 MGS 4 GT5 Killzone 2 & 3 Puppeteer ICO Shadow of the Colossus Resident Evil The Darkside Chronicles Minecraft Uncharted Drake's Fortune God of War III PS+ The Lego Games Destiny Fat Princess
No love for Heavy Rain?
Or Resistance. It's my second favorite new IP for PS3.
Ps3 made a great comeback and pass it off to the ps4. Long like the roadrunner blowing pass wallie.
Atari 2600 wins! FTW!!!
PS3 all the way! I liked GeoW on xbox360 tho, Halo coop can be fun too.
PS3 won years ago! So many amazing excluisves! It came out a year later and still beat the 360. Peope really need to give Sony credit for what they do. Out of all of the 3 companies, Sony made the most and best exclusives! New IP's, old Ip's I give MS props for making online gaming awesome with achievements, XB1 store and system features.
MS completely dropped the ball for the last 4 years because of.....Don Mattrick! He's destroyed all company in the past.
I have a ton of PS3 backlog of games to play, PS3 was such a hated console and against all odds made an epic comeback. The first time I turned on the ps3 and played Heavenly Sword all night long, it brings a smile to my face.
Heavenly sword stoll looks good today
Xbox 360 was definitely better-better controller, better exclusives. But no way was that war bigger than SNES/Genesis-that was the ultimate war.
Towards the end, Sony completely stomped the Xbox in terms of exclusives. I got a Ps3 in 2011, and after that I hardly touched my 360
Im still playing with my PS3 while my PS4 is collecting dust PS3 is the best Playstation of all times IMO god of war /beyond two souls and The last of us graphix are in another league and wont fit in 7th generation's standards The PS3 is truly a beast
Xbox 360 for the first half of the generation. Than i'd say ps3 once it picked up momentum and gained great exclusives.So really its a tie in my opinion. What a great generation!!!
360 clearly won. It moved approximately the same amount of hardware and tons more software.
So sales dont matter when its Ps4 vs XB1, but they do when its Ps3 vs 360?? Lol okay. In my opinion, the 360 had a great start with tons of exclusives, but the Ps3 definitely got more love in the second half of the gen, whereas the 360 just relied on multiplats
Well ps4 fanboys seem to think sales matter, i just seen a comment on another article saying the ps4 won because it sold double the amount of x1s.
Gears 1,2, and 3. Xbox One!
