Cnet's Prizefight between the 360 and the PS3. After part one you may be surprised to see who wins this title bout. And the winner of the coveted belt is...
Oh just calm down guys, don't take this review too serious....its just one recomendation and mostly just for entertainment value.
they voted the same way pretty much everything else I've seen has said.
The 360 is a great investment right now, especially with the killer titles coming this year. and the ps3 may be worth it on 2007-08 when more titles arrive, and devs are able to push more out of it.
However, Sony better get off their butts and get their online act together though, if that doesn't change, quickly, I shudder at their chances at making it to a ps4.
Wait a year and then do a count of available games.....good games.
360 is smoking on releases, but alot of them are crap. Ps3 is only just out of the gate, and there is all this negative press and fanyboyism etc, but don't you worry.Playstation will do FINE. Will still be on top. Period. Oh yeah, one more thing, Sony's online 'act' as you call it, Is bound to get better over time and you know it. And it's F R E E . Imagine the amount of user growth a F R E E service will see over time? The amount of people that will use it? Pretty much everyone that has a connection and gets a ps3 probably. Its going to be huge.
There are much more titles on 360 worth buying than the one on PS3. Every system has crap games by the way
So free means participation? Why is it then that the bad PS2 online function wasn't so massively used and XBOX Live on the old XBOX already was a succes although it was paid for less functions then 360 Live has?
It just shows. Premium paid services are taken by consumers for that relative small amount per month/year as long as the service is real good. Compare that to a free, but so damn basic online service and you'll know where real gamers go.
Hey douche bag spacetoilet. She said that at the end of the video. go cry elsewhere.
Is anyone shocked. A lot of people in various media formats have been saying the same thing thats in this video. Consistencies are rampant on this issue.
the woman hardy knows anything about gaming. Cnet can't review products at all! they do these silly comparisons with tvs, mp3s, and dvd players.
oh and i didn't know that there where 150 x-box 360 title, i mean if there is that many titles and we only heard of a few then, there must be alot of crappy games.
if thats the case then the ps3 must have even poorer games on it . due to the fact that most 3rd party games r ported over to the over hyped ps3 and r poorer than the 360 versions hmmmm i wonder y ? is cos of the power of the cell LOL !!
The 360 is better optimized for games. The PS3 is packed with Blu Ray play back and extra USB ports, SD card reader and ect. We all expected this.
But Cent cannot make you happy with your purchase only the games can. Yes it is good to be a 360 owner. The PS3 still has some room to improve you just need to wait and see. Me personally I want what I pay for right away but it is O.K. if you (PS3 fans) do not mind waiting because you are paying for potential in the 1st place. Or some thing like that?
To “the marts” point. (Does free mean participation?) No!!! But the reason that the Ps2 wasn’t massively used and the Xbox was used, is because of functionality and convenience. The nic card was in the Xbox when you bought it. The Ps2, you had to buy it separately. So, if you had no reason the get online, (ie. Games and downloadable content) you wouldn’t buy the online adapter. I only bought it for Madden and Live. My friend where playing it and we all had just left college, so it was the only way to play with them.
As for “caps lock” point and “was a sony fan’s” counter point every system will have crap games, but to say that X360 has some sort of "lock on the industry" because of like 4-5 good games and 1-2 great games is short sighted.
I said it once and will say it again. If you don’t buy both systems you will miss out on some "Great Games" that will NEVER be ported over to the other systems.
Each to its own, but you can’t debate great games. Halo, MGS, Gear of War, God of War, These are “Great Games” not “good ones” and you will only see them on their respectable systems, mostly because they are made by the console companies themselves. (I know that Gears is made by Epic, but I don’t think that it will come to PS3 anytime, defiantly not soon)
My definition of a “Great Game” – A game that before “it” there was nothing like it, but after “it” came out every game like “it” was then compared to "it".
Example: GTA, Mario, Resident Evil. These games started their respective genre of game. (open roaming, platform, survival horror)
It’s the same thing with hardware. I would like to see fandboyizm die, and “gamers” rise from the ashes. Give credit where credit is due people, Playstation control revolutionized how all controllers will look and have looked, for the past decade. Xbox revolutionized how we will play online, and I will say that they will have that title for at very least the next decade.
Things change but they will always have the mark of those who started them. Yea, Xbox improved on the PS controller slightly, and that’s a matter of opinion. But it still looks like the PS controller. Ps3 might improve on the X360’s online, at very least maybe get MS to give Xbox live up for free, but even if they do improve the online, it will still look like Xbox Live.
Lastly to Thammer1 did you buy your X360 at launch? Cause if you did, then you paid for potential too, “or something like that.” LOL
You had to wait a whole year till you got your killer app in “Gears of War” everything before that was just OK. That’s why I didn’t get a X360 until November of last year, “no games” Now I admit to being a computer junky and I have followed the Cell for some time so yes I bought a PS3 right from launch but I have FC6 on it (using the Cores), it’s a PVR (for me), HD player (Blu-ray), and my quick internet fix when I am in my media room. X360, right now can’t do any of that.
“Jump in” and “Welcome3 Chang3”
P.s. and for kicks, yes I play games on my Ps3 :FN3, R:FOM, and NBA 2k7 / X360: GOW, R6:LAS, PGR3, and all the demos (arcade and game).
the reason why gears of war wont be on ps3 is b/c MS paid the bill on the game. MGS on the other hand was not paid for by sony and WILL end up on the 360 at some point in time.defanitly after it hits ps3,but it will hit the 360.
When the games show up for PS3 I'm there but until then I wait...... Allot of exclusives are jumping ship. When that stops happening I will spring for a PS3 but until then I wait. The $600.00 can go to allot of 360 games and more so when there is a real reason that is centered around improving my experience with gamming I wait.
But to each his own. Buy what you want for your own reasons and nothing else.
but to say that X360 has some sort of "lock on the industry" because of like 4-5 good games and 1-2 great games is short sighted.
i guess thats ur oppinion on that .
i have playd over 80 games on my 360 , 25 arcade 55 full price how well i rotate my collection .
1-2 gr8 games u say,,, there r more .
so basically we've just watched a cleverly disguised ad for the 360.
I didnt have the time to take the 'test' to be able to make an article.
No problem Holynerds thats what the tips are there for if you don't have time just tip it off to someone else. That said I found this on Cnet and posted it, then saw your tip linked to the article, but thanks anyway. :)
This console is not going to last. It is an overated loud piece of crap. Even the online is overated. I see better things coming out of Sony. The Bill Gates brand is for that type of @$$hole. That sysyem really bores me and the people I know that own it don't really play as much as they should. And thats probably about 8 or 9 people. The system has one or 2 good games and both of those are shooter games other than that thats it. The game play and graphics look better on PS3. The game play on XBOX one is better than alot of 360 games. And who cares about Blue Dragon your either [email protected]
You must really like your PS3. I'm glad you took the time to share this message with us. I mean what was your insiration for this? I must know.
wow u are very disturbed person i truly feel sorry for ur kids. and if the xbox 360 is so bad, and the ps3 is so good, how come ps3 is sitting on shelves???
they have had pricte sutes twice already in their own "territory"
i dont think xbox 360 is better then ps3 and i dont think ps3 is better then xbox360, i own a 360 and heopfully i can buy a ps3 one day lol...
but damn, u need some more puss to relax or something
You need help!
You are the biggest dipsh#@ on this site!
Get some counseling to ease your 360 denial.
Gates donates money to good causes.....
Sony does nothing for no one......F@#K OFF
Awwwww... Bill Gates donates money to good causes... FOR THE TAX BREAKS...
You're talking about one of the most ruthless software/(crap) hardware manufacturers out there.
Take a look at the track record for Microsoft. They have been sued (and lost) for anti-trust violations in the past (and present...), they are decidedly anti-competitor, and they have a knack for either buying out or killing off any competition that gives them a run for their money...
So what do you end up with? Sloppy bug-riddled software, and a company that would rather NOT innovate, because they don't have to...
The only redeeming business unit they have is the Xbox business unit, and that's only because of Sony and Nintendo keeping them on their toes... They can't afford to just rest on their laurels like they do with their PC software divisions.
Just take a look at Windows Vista... Name ONE reason that everybody should rush out and get Vista... It runs PATHETICALLY slow unless you're running it on high-end hardware, the UI is changed just enough to throw a nasty learning curve at you (same with Office 2007), and those damn security dialogs asking you if you really want to do just about everything you do...
See what happens when Microsoft has no serious competition in a particular market? Do you REALLY want gaming to go that way?
P.S. I worked for the evil empire (Micro$oft) for a few years back in the mid-90's... They USED to be a company that I looked up to, now I can't wait to see them eventually defeat themselves... You just gotta love a company that has BILLIONS of dollars in liquid assets, yet cuts their Product Support Services in the US down to 20% of its original size, farming it off to India, in the interest of "Cost Cutting"... Flooding the job market in the areas they had support centers in, essentially screwing over the very people that were taking care of their customers, and keeping them happy with their decision to go with Microsoft... YAY BILL G!!!
the tech support for microsoft sucks anyway dude
and the tech support for sony also sucks
and im sure that bill gates doesnt only donate because of taxes lol, anyway yeah they are ruthless but thats why they have so much money, id be ruthless too for that much money
we did bring on the games rowdy 150 of em, where are yours? oh yea you got 40 of em. and you make fun of some 360 games for being japanese games yet the ps3 games are geared more toward japanese styles and its made there. so i dont get what you are trying to say. u sir are a retard.
