The 360 has the headstart but could Sony have an advantage of better quality?
I was getting tired of these quick multi-platform comparisons of different sports titles and people waving them around like they really take advantage of a console's strengths like exclusives do.
I am sure the PofS3 can put out just as good if not better graphics then the 360 but what system would you rather have, one with no rumble in the controller? One where the online experience is crap? One that cost more? or the Xbox 360? That's what I thought, the Xbox 360 hands down!
These are the exact same people who did that comparison of mutlit-platfrom games by making fun of the graphics on Sonic on both the 360 and PS3. I will definetly be looking at there websit alot now that I know the website.
"The 360 has the headstart but could Sony have an advantage of better quality?" No it doesn't. Just look at COD3 or FNR3, the 360 wins hands down. See the graphics from the PS3 major title, Resistance, and the 360 major one, Gears of War, and Gears wins hands down. Plus that website out of the ancient time, doesn't work on either Firefox, nor the new IE. Dull website, dull article probably. @ Smitty below me. That's nonsense: COD3 watch this link, move over the pics to see the difference between the versions http://www.gamespot.com/fea... The 360 version is much, much sharper, has much, much more detail. Look at the last picture also, the house in the distance. The sharpness of the PS3 version reminded me of COD on the XBOX 1. Plus: Xbox Scores First Round Knock Out of PS3 http://www.xbox365.com/news... "Xbox is flat-out better both visually and mechanically," said H3's chief communications officer and world class gamer, Adrian "Hollywood" Walton. "When 'Fight Night' is played at its highest level with the highest possible resolution, everyone was able to see Xbox 360's superiority to PS3 as clear as can be on H3TV." Dipset and H3 superstar Juelz Santana was just as emphatic in his breakdown of the "Fight Night" face-off: "H3TV completely exposed that PS3's High Definition picture doesn't come close to Xbox, at least for "Fight Night." Everyone that had the opportunity to compete on both consoles scored Xbox higher right across the board." So I'm sorry for you but probably you need to put your glasses on! Go watch Resistance, look at the grass, close up stuff... You'll find it lacks sharpness and detail. It's like last gen on steroids. Even COD2 on the 360 kicks it ass as a launch title. It seems it's all because of the PS3 GPU that gives washed out colours and less detail then the 360 gives @ unixphreak1911 with that link of 20% usage of the PS3... You know that's marketingbullsh!t, right? Every console gets better games after some time, compared to the launch games. Epic has said with Gears of War they used 40% of the 360's power. Gears actually looks double as good as Resistance which uses 20% of the PS3 so in the end they do about the same right? Come on that's no logic sense. Don't eat all that marketingtalk and go watch how the games look, right here, right now. Links given above
FNR3 looks better on the PS3, and COD is essentially even.

PS3 at around 20% utilization, and it's comparable to the 360??? 'Nuff said...
i actually think that COD looks better on the PS3 from the pics uve given. and when u say look at the house, you can clearly see that the house looks better on ps3. i dont understand why you posted them links if ur pro 360
Damn you really need glasses... You know the first picture is from the 360 and when you move over it, it's the PS3, right??? It's less detailed, it's less sharp, it has washed out colours, in the distance it has less things on screen, sky, house, whatever. I guess even glasses won't help. I officially declare you blind, or you are just a Sony fanboy that don't want to see the truth, looking through pink Barbie Ken glasses. For real. Anyone sees the 360 version is better. You want more proof of reviewers that are unbiased? http://www.gamespot.com/xbo... http://www.gamespot.com/ps3... Gamespot rated the PS3 version @ 8.2, the 360 version @ 8.8 Read it also please... "However, an inconsistent frame rate and fewer multiplayer options make the PlayStation 3 version slightly inferior to the Xbox 360 version." so it's not only the sharpness and details, it's also a choppy framerate on the PS3. Take it or leave it or go laser the eyes please
I like the 360 version more but when it comes down to it I wouldn't mind playing the PS3 version. I'd definitely miss the rumble though.
It's the exact same jpg files shown for both consoles. Enough said. XBOX360: http://image.com.com/gamesp... PS3: http://image.com.com/gamesp...
Its funny to me to see mart in a room that is for PS3 announcements, and its even funnier that he is the 3rd post. It looks to me like theMART is having buyers remorse about his 360 and is trying to find ways of justifying jumping on the XBOX bandwagon. By the way MART, the word is COLORS not COLOURS, it would serve you right to do a spell check before posting for the world to see. On to the meat of your post, consider that most of the games you cited are PORTS, and bad ones at that, if you are not familiar with what that is its a game that was made for one system and released on another machine with little to no optimization for the sole purpose of making money, in other words MARK the PS3 did not get a fair shake because the games were not optimized for the system. Gears of War looks better than than Resistance? Perhaps but how much better? Resistance is a first generation Sony game, Gears of War is a 360 2nd generation. That is similar to having a sales man that has been with the company for 10 years closing 10 accounts this year and having a kid straight out of college and having him close 8 counts that year, it goes without saying that the guy who has been there for 10 year would be very worried because of the potential the college kid has shown for how well he can do in the future. And just for your consideration MARK, think about how many PS2s were sold this holiday season. The user base Sony has has only grown so eventually most of those people who purchased a PS2 will want a PS3. The long run for the 360 is looking very interesting, I don't think Microsoft will go out of business but I believe your lack of analytical analysis and also your blind following of Microsoft is really hurting you in this post. Time will tell more than anything and you are selling Sony short even before the race has started, but I can't blame you because if I were you or MS I would be worried to. In closing MARK, you need to become MS's PR person because that is some grade A ass kissing you are engaging in my friend, make sure they send you your W-2, because taxes are coming due. What you need to do MARK is STFU, play your GOW and watch your porn on you separate HD-DVD player and leave the analysis and comment on the state of the video game industry to people with more than a grade school education. Happy gaming!
.....we only spell color that way with American english.. He might be from Canada or the UK or something thus he spells it colour and we say colour. Amercan English and British English have a lot of little differences like that. I bet he drinks a lot of tea or something too. j/k
i disagree with you, and im branded as blind? wheres the logic in that? and btw your insults are so immature and stupid, you lose all credibility to what you're saying. the colours on the ps3 look brighter as a whole, the 360s are a bit dark for my likeing. but thats my preference, my opinion, not yours. so why cant you accept that? oh bcoz i dont agree with you im a sony fan? do you actually know me? so dont jump to conclusions for gods sake. true some of the pics looks better on the 360 on the games they show - fight night etc. but i personally think that some of the ps3 pics looks a tad better than 360's. anyways, my rant has ended
C'mon people how many more times does the 360 have to prove that its the better gaming console in terms of graphics. You only need to look at the GPU for both consoles and you'll see which console has the better graphical power it doesnt take a genius to work it out. In one corner you have a nextgen GPU with unified architecture and embedded ram and in the the other we have an out dated 7800GTX you do the math... P.S why do we still not know the specs of the RSX c'mon sony what are you afraid of!!!!
is basically a freelance journalist. He's just a script reader, he has NO education in videogaming whatsoever. He appears in ads ranging from washing up powder to alchoholic beverages. I wouldn't take him seriously. for there even to be a debate, "which is better?" is bad news for the PS3. with all the so-called power it has, theoreticly, the PS3 SHOULD have blown the 360 out the water AGES ago?
Than why the hell did you give this story your approval rating??? Sorry to say this but "FANBOY" confirmed for "DC RID3R"
"Than why the hell did you give this story your approval rating??? Than why the hell did you give this story your approval rating??? Sorry to say this but "FANBOY" confirmed for "DC RID3R" " first of all shorty, if you want a D*ck to jump on, catch a cab to your local g*y-bar, my python is for WOMEN only. I gave this story approval because this is a "heart warming" news article for PS3/sony fans. Just because I prefer teh 360 (best online games, gamers, gaming network), that doesn't mean I'm not interested in other game related news! Third, your writing style is VERY similar to achira a.k.a G-string hooker. I PITY TEH FOOL! psst psst (spit)
No I'm not "achira" and I do not like "achira" myself.
^^ If they can't get their website to work properly on Firefox I sure can trust them to know something about hardware specific.
Who the hell doesn't support Firefox these days? Not worth looking at now...
i dont care about the graphic. i care about the games. Sony has the best games since PS1. I care about Bluray movies too.
You're absolutely right Sony really knew what they were doing when they first came to the market. And for those who love blu-ray this is a dream come true, but gamers want evolution and Sony isn't proving that they can do that just yet. They probably just need time like MS did with Gears, R6 vegas etc, but as of right now games wise Sony isn't bringing much to the table when they could be romping the market.
NO they dont, but just wait until all the fans boys that think the PS3 graphics looks better show up.BUT..... I know what there gonna say JUST GIVE THE PS3 A YEAR THEN WE'LL SEE!!
To be honest, I'm one of the very lucky European people who has both a PS3 and an Xbox 360. I play both on a 40" Sony Bravia KDLW2000 LCD TV. PS3 is through HDMI and the Xbox is still through the inferior Component cable. To be honest... I was suprised, the Xbox version (Even through it's component cable) had slightly more detail to the images than it's PS3 counterpart on COD3. But upon examination I noticed that the lighting on the xbox360 was GLARING and often produced paradoxial results (For instance light shining through walls, overused lighting in dark areas) It was basically....just horrible. Annoyed at this I did some research and found out that the PS3 infact has 128bit HDR, which is far higher than the Xbox 360 thus causing the xbox 360 to Bloom it's lighting. I certainly do not think the Xbox 360 is capable of producing better graphics with it's yesterdays technology, but I do think that developers should exploit the Cell and RSX to get more out of it. This brings me to the conclusion that when I play games on the PS3 I'm seeing them as the developers wanted me to see them, when you play games on the 360 you see them in a distored sense.
great comment there. i supported sony all the way.
Wow "HandShandy" I think you got your system's mixed up there, but hey it just might be my opinion along with GameSpot.com opinion too. Link- http://www.gamespot.com/fea...
but specs are ONLY specs :( Fact is that yes, the ps3 is very powerfull, and isn't showing it's full capabilities atm (2008/9) :( Fact is that in order to produce that power for optimized ps3 games costs enormous GUAP!!! Way too much money for most dev's :( Fact is that with the ps3 installation base where it is at the moment(1,360,351- nexgenwars.com), it doesn't make sense to release these titles until the amount of ps3 sku's in homes has risen dramatically (I estimate around the 9-10 million mark)and becomes financially viable :( Fact is most ps owners play iso backups/pirated games(if your heart just jumped, I mean YOU)), hence the dreadfull software sales that befall the ps2+psp (110 million ps2's sold, how many software titles have eclipsed the 10 million mark?) :( Fact is MOST ps3 owners will wait for modchips and hacks to appear on the PS3 for the EXACT same purpose, again halting software sales, and therefore "making truly OPTIMIZED games for the ps3" seem EVEN less financially viable :( Fact is teh Xbox 360 has the best online games, the best online gamers, the best online network, and 10,426,648 owners :] FACT
"I certainly do not think the Xbox 360 is capable of producing better graphics with it's yesterdays technology, but I do think that developers should exploit the Cell and RSX to get more out of it." Oh please. How much bull can you bring? Yesterdays technology. A triple core 3.2 Ghz CPU isn't certainly yesterdays technology. The GPU of the 360 is more advanced then the PS3 one. That GPU is yesterdays PC technology, because Sony thought the Cell could do the GPU tasks also. Late in their development process they found out they needed a GPU, ran to Nvidia with a bag of money and asked what they could get for it. Nvidia then took a standard GPU of the shelves and said here you are. The Cell and GPU are not optimal together as the 360 CPU and GPU are special build. John Carmack says that, other say it. The Cell might be a new form of CPU build, but also stated it's not optimal for gaming, it is for videodecoding, that's why in combination with the BluRay player makes it a videoplayer first and have some games on top. But not the best, and certainly not the best gaming experience with the lack of a PREMIUM online service. Just simple as that. Plus, you talk about lightning... Well why is it then that night levels on the 360 in COD3 look like they should and the PS3 is washed out no night, but a sun coming up somewhere where it doesn't belong? Why is it that all the lighting in other games, including FNR3 isn't good? Why is it that shadows and lightning in for example football games are so wrong on PS3?
You do know the Xbox 360 uses a proto ATI RS600 GPU chip that you can't even buy yet. Most cross platform games should look better because they have had more time to work on the games. How does HDR lighting look worst then non-HDR lighting? If their are problems with the lighting its not the technology its a mistake by the devs. Whats next?, I FOUND A GLITCH IN TDU itz becuz of Xbot 360 has inferer technolgy. I've been following these two consoles long enough to know the difference between them and one lousy video isn't going to change that.
same with cross platform games. What developer is really going to spend the money or time to makes games look better for one systme or another. Graphics on exclusive titles, though difficult to compare, is the only way comparisions can be made between the two systems graphical capacities.
Just compare GOD OF WAR on ps2 to it's original titles - now that's almost a generation leap and it runs perfectly well on my 5year old ps2. All games will improve in graphics, and that means the xbox360 as well. As far as I know we're not even threading games yet, so the xbox has those other two cores to play with. But then the ps3 has a lot to play with, and the improvements will come. As the thing says, when you're working to the strengths of a certain machine then the graphics will be much better - of course ports dont look as good, because they were working to the strengths of the 360. Of course it's about time...when have 1st generation games ever looked good?
About God of War "the first game had some of the best graphics ever achieved on a PlayStation 2, so no one will be disappointed. Some of my fellow editors even commented that the game's in-game graphics looked almost like CG." I rest my case - if ps2 games can look this good, then the future looks good.
even you don't believe what you just said!!xbox has yesterdays technology!! if that's the case then the Ps3 has last months graphics technology!!these are the kinda posts that bother me just like when DJ post!! no matter how good the xbox looks an how bad the Ps3 looks they still say the Ps3 games look better. since you have a PS3, I'm sure you have RFOM, just look at the ground.check out where it turns from road to grass.its all flat the road is grey an then turns green to be grass, there's no different textures to separate the 2.RFOM was supposed to be sonys flag ship game, its first party, its been in development for a while an that's the best they can produce!! I don't see what all the fuss is about anyway. the xbox 1 had better graphics than the Ps2 an fans boys didn't act like this.but I guess since sony said that the Ps3 will blow away they xbox 360, its not happening but they still believe it anyway!!
"the xbox 1 had better graphics than the Ps2" Thats true but sony has far more games than xbox. PS1 and PS2 games are compatible with PS3 so still sony are going strong. Who cares about the graphic? I care about the game.
To PanixATK: I care about the game too, but when the games look bad and distorted I would rather play them on another format that looks better. To Everyone else: Thanks for your feedback. It's funny someone should mention the M$ Biased site: Gamespot because thats where I think this whole lighting issue started. I cannot comment on their comparisons because I question their authenticity... I havn't got my systems mixed up "Hardwood" I have a firm belief in my own eyes and they do not decieve me when I look at the PS3 and Xbox 360 side by sides in a graphics comparison - the result being the PS3 games have better lighting. Notice how I said the Xbox360 had better detail. That is still the case and I'm not really sure why they do? Perhaps these games were made on the Xbox360 first then PORTED to PS3 or emulated or what ever. I'm not sure. As for RFOM. I don't see why I should doll out £50 on a game that looks only slightly better than PS2's Killzone that is full of idiots in an online community. No thanks. I skipped that game - I will get it once my clan gets their own PS3s so we can play it together. In conclusion and to reply to "gnothe1" comment, I'm not really too sure about the way these games on the PS3 will turn out in terms of graphical quality on their first party titles. I hope that they look as fantastic as what we have all been promised, but it's going to take developers time as it did with alot of PS2 titles. I'm quite happy with Both my Xbox 360 and my PS3. The Xbox may reek of unstability over the next couple of years but at least I can play Deadrising over and over again. (That is my fav game on Xbox360, worth buying the console for) I'm going to say the typical fanboy statement here "Just give it time" because that's what it needs. Time. We should see a dramatic improvement in already great graphics on the PS3 and Xbox360 over the next couple of years. Who wins the game console war will be up to idiots and their wallets, not the hardcore enthusiasts like us. Thanks.
We don't have to wait for anything. Gears of War looks better than any PS3 game, current or planned, that's actually been seen on REAL hardware and not just in the realm of Sony's "pretend" hardware that it keeps touting. (see: e3 '05 when Killzone was "real gameplay" running in "realtime") Metal Gear Solid < GOW. Devil May Cry < GOW. ...etc. And the whole while, GOW is upscaled to 1080p, while lots of people are having their Resistance downgraded to 420p by PS3.
Too early to say anything. I'd wait till the end of 2007 when both systems are on more equal ground.
You Sony guys keep saying wait. First it was wait until E3 06, Then it was wait until TGS 06. Next it was wait until launch. Lets stop waiting. The console was delayed, dev had extra time with it no excuses. The 360 is gaming machine first. The PS3 is a DVD player first. I game more than I watch movies.
Dude just be quiet. It is all about the wait. It took a while to grasp the ps2 and we ended up with games like GOW and Shadow of the Collossus. Your amazing game took a year and the xbox360's architecture is a lot easier to program for. So yes wait - we don't know how long it'll take do we - but its inevitable. Will they be better than xbox360's improvements over the years? Who knows. But there will certainly be improvement. It's all about the dev's and their systems, which improved 10fold over the years of the ps2 and will do the same for the ps3.
I agree with you there, I wish they would hurry up with something spectacular aswell. In the mean time, we shall just have to wait... hehehe
now that you sonyFans have seen the video ,i hope that you all learned a lesson . being,just cuz the price was so high didn't mean that you cats got what you weer paying for. like i said before to all my friend that now see or coming to see what i always told them in the beginning that there paying for an $650 weaker 360 lol this is great !!!!!
------------------------------ ------------------------------- -- I dont understand why people compairs Resistance with Gears of war? Resistance: fall of man = 1:st generation Ps3 game Gears of war = 2:nd generation Xbox360 game Thats not fair. It would be more fair to compare Resistance: fall of man with Perfect dark zero. Dont you think so ? ----------------------------- ------------------------------ -
they worked on both for basically the same amount of time. both teams started in 05. gears came out in october of 06, rfom in november 06. you do recall that the ps3 was due in spring 06 right? that means they were working on these games well before that.
Perfect dark still beats RFOM in graphics, i cant say about gameplay because i havent played RFOM yet. Oh yeah i thought the PS3 was twice as powerful as the x360 according to sony and there lemmings, so shouldnt the first gen games blow all 360 games out the water and shouldnt the ported games look alot better and run smoother and all in 1080p on the all powerful PS3. Thats what sony led us to believe, but now the ps3 is launched all we're hearing is WAIT, WAIT, WAIT!!! I mean the xbox 1 showed it was way more powerful than the ps2 right from launch we didnt have to WAIT so shouldnt it be the same case with the PS3 huh. Face it you sony fanboys have been raped once again..
Sony was the first to jump out and say "we have given them the developer kits, look what they have done!" on E3'05. Developers have been working on both systems since 05 and they had no worries about rushing the games out of doors for PS3 since it was delayed for such a long time. They had more time for development in that case, and we will still wait? For what? Next holiday Santa will be delivering better graphics? Will untap the console's true potential? We are not kids anymore.
Got a bad rap. It is actually a pretty game. I PLAY ALL THE TIME. if you want to play with me my gamer tag is THAMMER1. I used to rag on PDZ real hard. I mean down right trash talk I even sold it. But My wife bought it back for me as a gift and now I can really say it is great. The graphics/damage detection/atmosphere/weapons/j etpacks/hovercrafts and weapons are pretty good. It is a real blast. the best part is it is only like $18.00.
I think it is totally fair because of the Raw Power of the PS3...Like if you are going to advertise you Console as being the Best then why not compare(Graphically)the games against the best.
wait... how does a european own a ps3 if it hasn't been launched in europe yet? both systems will graphically look great, but it comes down to the games. if the games are horrible, the system will be viewed as horrible. let's hope this time around we don't have a plethora of games where majority are crap (ref ps2 library).
some 360 games will look better, some ps3 games will look better. it depends on the style the devs choose, and what type of effect they are going for. the xbox was stronger graphically than the ps2, but there are still some ps2 games that look better than some xbox games. even every game on the same system doesn't look as good as each other, so why would it be any different on multiple systems?
Sony is telling everyone the PS3 is the most advanced system, that's why the price tag is what it is. What i don't understand is If we as gamers have to break our necks to tell the diff between 360 and Ps3 what's so mighty about this $700 system. I live in Canada and let me tell u people are not flocking to this system, we have sense enough to know what money is worth, and clearly we can see the diff in grafics is not worth the xtra 2 bills
Indigo u are right on the MONEY!(no pun intended) I have been a Playstation Fanboy since the day it dropped on North American Soil but I have enough common sense to buy a X360 because of price alone. Like I have been taking alot of "BEEF" because of a "Turncoat" or "Wagon Jumper" but I say who cares because right There are like NO games out for the PS3 and plus right now you can get a X360 for 499.99 and a PS3 for 650.99 enough said.
Gears of War has looked the same since E3 05. R:FOM has looked the same since it was called I8. F-waiting. If I pay $600 it should be that good now. God of War is not even on par with Halo1 on xbox1. When the first xbox1 came out Halo1 killed every thing on the PS2 away. Dam emotion engine hype. Keep falling for the Sony hype. Even with the PS3 being delayed the games are still junk. Just wait and see when VF5 drops on the 360 and look better than the PS3 version. I wonder what excuss you will make then. It will be they had more time. BTW, I don't work for M$ and you don't work for Sony so stop the the "WE" stuff. I'm a gamer. I'm just calling it as i see it. Right now the PS3 is not worth the money as a gaming machine.
You gamers certainly do act like you're part of Microsoft's/Sony's possy. Hence the 'your games'. I have no preferences as of yet. Did Halo 1 blow GOD of War out of the water? I mean Halo was out before God of War - and I've played it and compared it to GOW (note God of war not Gears of war - amusing how the best games have to have war in the title) and I must say it is an amazing cg experience, really working to the ps2's strengths - a system that only has 32mb of memory. God of War is on a par with next-gen games in terms of vision and artistry.
why arent you brilliant. halo 1 vs God Of War. A FPS vs an Action Adventure. Real smart dumb one.
This is silly. There is not a PS3 game in stores that looks better than Gears Of War. Does that mean that the Xbox 360 is the uber l33t haxor and pwns the RSX to 0bl11vionsssssssssssssssssssss sssss? Uh, no. Does this me an that the Cell and RSX will make MGS4 or a Final Fantasy VII remake cell 15-20 million systems as well as make Bill Gates eat his own poop and die? No. Stop it. PS3 or X360, there's just different strokes for different folks.
different strokes to rule the world.
Below are links of video for R:FOM and Gears of war. Now notice that the GEARS vids are from 05. The R:FOM are final build. GEARS was Delayed because ther user base of the 360 was low. THE GAME HAS LOOKED THE SAME SINCE E3 05. Stop the darn 2nd gen 1 st gen game crap. Is this is the case then the PS3 will always be behind. The Ps2 was out before the xbox1 and we all say the graphical difference. It's about the dev money and talents just as much as it is about the hardware. R:fom final build http://media.ps3.ign.com/me... GOW from 05 http://media.xbox360.ign.co...
At the current moment yes Xbox 360 games look better than ps3 i will say that , but the 360 has been for over a yr now the developers have had more than enough time to make the games look better and to understand the system. It not even been 6 months for the ps3 which is pushing way better specs, they need time to get use to it and understand it. You people forget that when the xbox just came out it wasnt blowing the ps2 away until a few yrs most the games that came out look the same, so all i am saying is lets ask this same question in a yr or 2.
Dude most PS3 devs received their PS3 dev kits(not final kits) the same time the Xbox 360 dev kits went out. Every Multi-Platform game has had atleast 1-3 maybe even 6 months more in development then the Xbox 360 version. This would include: Oblivion, COD3, Madden and FNR3.
That really doesn't matter. Both 360 and PS3 games will evolve. So if 2nd gen 360 games are up to 1st gen PS3 games, but the 360 games look better... It's right here right now. In some time, the 3rd gen 360 games will be up to the 2nd gen PS3 games. That way the 360 will always be ahead, always looking better in that view. The 360 is just a year ahead. A year ahead in sales, a year ahead in everything. Yeah, that's very, very hard to catch up with, especially if behind it, it's the biggest softwaregiant in the world, with an incredible online premium system which Sony hasn't been able to reproduce and won't be able to catch up with in at least a few years. It just seems the 360 takes the nr. 1 spot in gaming, the PS3 goes for the best and cheapest version of a BluRay player
But when xbox came out the games surpassed ps2 visuals at launch! I loved the PS2 but gotta admitt that it has never had visuals up to par with the original xbox!
The reason this "European" owns a PS3 is because he imported one. Why did this "European" go through all this effort to get a US PS3 so quickly? Because he wanted to see what it was like for himself and how it compared to the older xbox360 system. There's alot of people in here with very strong negative views about Sony Computer Entertainment... the people probably before the Original Xbox owned Playstations. Anyway that's beside the point here, you obviously have something against the PS3 because you are ANGRY at other people's oppinions of it being better than the '360. Your trying to stop them spending $600 on a console? Argh. I appreciate your desperation to try and guide me onto M$ path of gaming domination but no thanks. As for the "Wait and see" issue. It's annoying Sony can't have any really decent titles out there at the start. I remember excitidly getting an Xbox360 at launch aswell.....and being very dissapointed by the awful launch line up. I was then faced with numerous claims for M$ fanboys saying "You just wait till GOW or Halo3".... I'm sorry can us Playstation people not stay the same for our console that HAS ONLY JUST BEEN RELEASED. Obviously not because Gears of War is the greatest game ever made, even though it's a direct copy of a concept done on a PS2 game called "Killswitch" I have Gears of War. It's a stunning game. I think it shold set the bench mark of how all next-gen games should look. It's far from perfect though, it's a boring game and it's 3rd person. (My oppinion) To be honest, I think Motorstorm looks alot better than GOW. It's difficult for a M$ supporting Xbox owner to look past a game that isn't a shooter but I think that game deserves credit. GT4HD is something spectacular aswell. So stop giving the PS3 a massive bashing about it's graphics here because there are some fantastic things on it. Half of the people here probably don't even own the right kind of TVs to support 1080p resolutions anyway. I'm sorry, but me being a "Sony person" are certainly not caving in. I have BOTH consoles and I openly prefer my PS3 in every single concept. 1. It's online 2. It's hardware 3. It's controller 4. It's interface The games will come, just like GOW came to 360 nearly a year later. I'm not living in denial either. I may have Sony products littered around my house but that doesn't stop me prefering my M$ Zune to my Sony walkman thank you. To me, and for my expectations - The Xbox360 sadly does not compare to the PS3 at all.... in any aspect. It's inferior, it's old...it's yesterday.
*SIGH~ GO PS3DO
LOL!! @ "To be honest, I think Motorstorm looks alot better than GOW" If only I was a blind man who havent seen them both in HD, I'd actually believe that after having someone read me that long post. Nice one, now my stomach hurts.
explained it better. I am very similiar to your views only thing that i dont agree with, is that you actually own a Freakin x360. I wont buy that piece of crap if it was the only console on the market. But besides that you are definatley correct in my opinion. Your probably more of a gamer than I am. I guess thats why you purchased a x360?
If the 360 was the only gaming machine on earth you would own one. Don't blow smoke buddy!
console when you controller shakes in your hand when your vehicle's bouncing up and down over the rough terrain in motostorm? Oh i forgot ur next gen console doesn't support rumble support. Let alone gfx, the console ure so praising about has no FF. Anyway, i will buy ps3/bluray once it comes down in price and enough BD movies are available to warrant a purchase. In the meanwhile my gaming needs are being met by my xb360.
you might have had a chance, but when you said that the xbox doesnt compare to the Ps3 in any aspect you lost all credibility, especially when you said online which is a joke!! XBL is hands down better that the PlayStation network, so that takes care of online!! all games pretty much look better, sharper, an more colourful an run at faster frame rates(COD3 THP8)that pretty much takes care of the hardware.the controller is a matter of preference, I like rumble an the controller just feels good but to each his own!!then interface , the Ps3 is just a big brother of the PSP, nothing exciting there,then again its a matter of personal preference!!
