Yeah, Gears of War and Halo 3 are great, but what else makes the Xbox 360 better than the PS3? A lot, as GamePro editor Mr. Marbles recently discovered.
I'm sorry I hate VS. post a lot but I felt compelled to post this one, and not it has nothing to do with the fact I'm drinking...tequila...in large amounts. I SWEAR!
Whiskey and Coke for me whilst I approve, report, and post. I love these kinds of articles, it gets the fanboys' blood boiling.
Oh you water it down, you pansy. Real men don't have livers and neither should you. I've never had a problem with tequila, my friends usually are not as lucky though. One challenged a whole bottle by himself, he lost. He woke up in the morning with a scratch/cut the length of his back, funny thing was everyone knew he was gone so there was like 4-5 of us making sure he kept out of trouble and no one knew where his "cougar attack" came from, at least thats what he called it since no one knew how he could've gotten it.
to systematrix. yep this will get fanboys crying lol. but this a biased report. some of the 7 features that are listed are not really that good and future firmware updates can see the ps3 easily do them, if thats all they can think of then thats bad. the ps3 as features to that the 360 dont. like the psp can connect stream stuff from your ps3 (now that is a next gen feature if you like it or not), to play online is free (admitidly its not good as xbox live but still is very good.) home (il have to wait and see about this), acheivement system (is getting trophys and showing them off in your own personal trophy cabinet better than collecting gamerpoint, i think so). i kno its calm on the ps3 front but expect good things to come. i own a ps3 and a xbox. why people have got to slag each console i dont kno why. both have there strenghs and weakness's. i jus get the feelin the 360 as peaked and the ps3 is only gettin started. all i want is good stuff from both console and enjoy the competition. the more competition, the harder ms and sony will try to get better stuff for it. good time
Well this started up a war, just remember this is suppose to be OVERLOOKED features so most of them probably have a good reason for being overlooked.
This vs stuff is pure flame bait. Truth is BOTH 360 and PS3 have their strong points and weak points. Besides it in the end it does'nt matter which one is stronger, what matters is WHO comes out #1 in the end of the war. Look at PS2! The slowest loading and worst graphics of the 3 consoles and beat GameCube by 4 times the sales and the X Box by over 6 times its sales. Once the PS3's price drops, there's noway in hell they could lose and even after the 5 years, I bet they'd sell the most. MS brags about over 10 million sold BUT they still have'nt passed their previous console's sales 30 Million!
I think that the number one reason the 360 is better is that it delivers on its promises. I never heard the outrageous lies of 120 frames per second, 4D, SGI movie like graphics. Next gen starts when PS3 says it does......and imagine that, it is a games machine and has......you guessed it....games. PS3 is a good cheap Bluray player .....games would have been nice though.
Yeah and microsoft doesnt lie..cough cough 2% breakdown rate..
Well you paid almost the same price for your good cheap low tech DVD game player. Well, not the same price, maybe more...$100 more for your wireless compability for your low TECH DVD GAME PLAYER...
I don't know if you knew this but dvd outsells blu ray 100,000 to 1. So it was a very smart move to choose the cheaper but more widely adopted DVD format for a video game console than the over priced un poplular blu ray format. And when you add to the fact that even the superior cutting edge computers use DVD...and blow away ps3 games....it was the right move for MS. Sony took a big risk and so far its not paying off. People are buying less than 100k ps3's a month in the US and it just launched folks...WOW...and in japn its dwindled to less than 10k a week. This is SONY folks...the almighty SONY. What happened? I'll tell you what happened. Sony's first priority was to next gen movies and made an attempt to disguise their cheap blu ray player as a next gen video game console. It is what it is. More people would have bought the ps3 if they had chosen DVD instead of blu ray. Think about it...then all that time they spent on pushing their format would have been spent on making a better "video game" console. WOW
I think they should have put a CD into PS3. Imagine how much better a game console it would be?! Wow! But i guess MS would go with 5.25"floppy then, so they would have a better console again. No hope for Sony. Nintendo would beat them all with cartridges though. :D
In a way, forcing BluRay on its customers was smart for Sony. I am by no means a Sony fan, however I recognize that making the ps3 a BluRay player has helped get the players into the market. It has made ps3 sales take a huge hit due to driving up the price and has alienated Sony fans who just want the ps3 for games, however it has helped make BluRay the #1 next gen DVD brand in North America so far. That may change though, when Toshiba starts including HD-DVD players in its laptops. However, that remains to be seen.
either there are more ps3 fans on this site or they are just more dedicated than the 360 guys. i await the usual ps3 fanboy essay. note. there you go \/\/\/
Ya ok.. thanks for the good laugh. The fact and truth is the only thing the 360 will do for the family environment is make the kid cry and become depressed while holding his controller and crying because his Viva Pinata game locked up with dots all over the TV screen with 3-red lights flashing on the console. Mom and Dad are screaming on the phone with MS tech support because $140 for repairs is taking food off there families plate and little johnny's $400 X-Mas present is now a Big Flashing Red Brick. As the 360 commercials say ..."JUMP-IN!" lol Your in for one heck of a ride.
Hell yes the 360 delivers, but the PS3 is like a timebomb waiting to explode with awesome games. It worries me a bit, cuz I never in my life want to be a sony supporter again.
There's no need to worry my friend! If you go to ign or GameSpot and look at the upcoming games lineup, the 360 wins, hands down.
lol common man ur asking for a flame war :P:P just a littttttle biased i cant wait to hear the excuses from the sony boys
"console war" is starting to get petty. I think alot of websites know that these console comparisons generate many website hits and people are drawn to them like a moth to a flame. People want the "war" to end and for their console of choice to be the victor but fact is this so called "war" will never end because Sony and Microsoft are competitive and will continually try to be king of the hill. I for one am happy its this way because the more they try to improve the better games, services and functions i get.
Xbots are pathetic! Promises? Common! Reliability is far more important than promises,and you know what you get with the Xbox 180,NO RELIABILITY WHAT SO EVER!
Thats 4 red lights, 4 means a cable is not plugged in right.
at least the xbox 180 has better games than the PoS3, Gaystation 3, P$3. I'm not waiting or paying b3yond. See anyone can make up a lame title for a piece of hardware. And btw, my launch console has not had a single problem, neither did my original xbox, unlike my ps2.
Your only comments are about how xbox sucks. Try contributing something to the conversation. Oh wait.....you're out of bubbles.
Wait, when did the Xbox 360 Core come with even a headset? Also, who is this buy....I mean guy? Why do all of his reasons suck more than the reasons why you should buy an HD-DVD player for your car's headrest monitor?
I've played some of the best games ever in my life over the past year and a half on 360 and the future is looking good. And when the PS3 finally has some worthwhile games in the next year and a half, I'll be ready to buy the next Xbox and Microsoft's think tanks know it. I was prepared to buy both a PS3 and Wii at launch but they just have nothing to offer right now. I want Zelda real bad, but will not buy the system just for that. I will probably still get a PS3 eventually, but I don't foresee it being my main console before then next Xbox arrives.
This title...this article...Oh no, not again
Quick vegeta! What does the scouter say about this topic? ITS THE SAME topic OVEEEEER AGAIIIIN
"Bungie is a key "X factor" for Microsoft." Is Bungie even making the next Halo game? First, lets see if they deliver Halo3 to expectation. Also, Xbox Live? What are they going to do when Home hits? What are they going to say or even do then or even put into the #3 reason in next year’s some similar crappy article? Maybe it will be changed to Peter Moore, who knows? Mr. Marbles must be Mart's relative from the Netherlands’. Go strip naked for some pathetic (in my opinion) mass nude photo shoot or something. You will be of more use there than here flooding Gamepro with lame, crappy, and biased fanboy articles. Ok Headsets Included but no HD-DVD. lol @ Xi (Below) “Full of advertisements, modders, and annoying children”, in Home. Ok, it’s not my fault if you got social phobia. Firmware updates will clean out any modders anyways. “After people realizes it's not a game they're not going to keep going back to it.” What are you talking about? Everybody knows it not a game but a virtual interactive heaven for PS3 user. Yeah, go play with your 2D flat linear Xbox Live service experience for $50. HAHhahhahaaHahAHhahhahah (N4G Bill Gates style) @ anonymousAJA (below) Yeah, it is a possibility. Anyways, how can Mr. Marbles be so stupid?
a virtual playground for my avatar, full of advertisements, modders, and annoying children. Not like it matters, after people realizes it's not a game they're not going to keep going back to it. Or when they see how many micro-transactions the game will be filled with. People bought the ps3 to play games, and maybe movies, not so they can rebuild the apartment they live in and virtually hang out with friends that live down the hall. They already do that on second life, and maybe, just maybe in their real life(if those friends down the hall do in fact exist). But i guess you've got to do something while waiting for good games to come out right? oh, and I take it you never played a marathon game, both scored into the 90's? or myth which averages a score of 85. Bungie makes excellent games. Sorry while you were typing your reply I joined a match of gears, and started downloading the demo for overloard. Damn I hate live, so easy to use, and all those leaderboards, and active friends lists. How I'm updated with everything so quickly. What bad service, with all these updates. How I can chat to people on the PC. I wish there was some way to make it more annoying, and slower, laggier, maybe make it more complicated. Hmm....
I have a feeling Bill "spendalot" Gates will most likely pay some poor typist to dictate Gates' idiotic reasons as why we should buy an Xbox 360 instead of actually doing something. I mean why spend all that money to improve technology, when you can pay a typist at a game website to publish the bull**** reasons to buy one AT A FRACTION OF THE PRICE? I swear if anyone is buying an Xbox 360 console because of this article, they should stop reproducing. Please go to the doctor and ask for the doctor to empty your sack. You're not smart enough to be procreating.
The 360 has plenty of merits, however most of the ones that Mr Marbles chose for his argument are extremely lackluster. - Plays nice with iPod? Really, that's a compelling argument for the 360? - Media Center compability? PS3 has this too now. This almost totally discredits this guy for me, does he even do research? - Headsets included. Yes, headsets are nice, but a 14.99-19.99 accessory isn't make or breaking anyone, or any system. He could have mentioned things like the price. Downloadable HD Movies. Etc. Really, this is a poorly written article. It really doesn't show off any really good things about the 360.
things that people don't really take into consideration when they think, why might the xbox be better than the ps3. Much like folding, and a web browser are often overlooked features as to why the ps3 beats the 360.
This article is about the OVERLOOKED features, not the best or well-known features.
with my simple statement? LOL The title of the article is "OVERLOOKED: 7 Ways the Xbox 360 Beats the PS3". How much clearer can the word OVERLOOKED be? A Sony fanboy no doubt...
if that is the 7 reason that 360 beas the ps3 lol then this console war like hddvd is already over lol PS3 ruins the 360 in every way and we PS3 fans KNOW! u 360 bots will be getting a PS3 so its all good lol
Many of us 360 guys will get a ps3 cause we are not narrow minded fanboys. If and when the system proves its value we probably will. Thats what differentiats true gamers from lame fanboys like yourself. As of this moment I cant see getting one for the one game that looks good that I could buy today RFOM. Any of the other good games I can get on my 360 with better graphics and online play. All the other games that look good are way to far off to drop money on a paper weight that will see a price drop before a game hits that I want. I am completely unbiased I love games and killer graphics. I will buy whatever delivers those things best and right now thats the 360. Sorry if that hurts your little pink hello kitty panty wearing bum.
First, those were "overlooked" features if you know what it means. Not quite sure you do. Second, they should add 8. Not as many idiot fangirls compared to PS3.
Wifi Web-Browser Hardware reliability Remote play Blue tooth HDMI (elite only) Memory slots Blue-ray player/drive Upgrade HDD audio-DTS-HD
PS3 has all that (was it sarcasm?)
PS3 owners simply put content straight onto their systems; no need to stream off a Media Center PC. The fact that "PC Ports" was included as the Number 2 advantage Xbox 360 has shows how weak the system is right now.
What a weak and unsatisfying list... Teh ownage not included
The custom soundtrack thing is definitely cool...I hope the ps3 gets that at some point... but come on guys...you have to see how hipocrytical some of this is...The one thing 360 fans give PS3 fans is that the ps3 is better at everything except playing games...Us PS3 owners have all kinds of "crap pushed on us that has nothing to do with gaming"...The DLNA protocol is just as good, if not more user friendly, than the media center extension on the 360..you can't get the ps3 without the BD drive...You can't get it without an HDMI port...You can't get it without wireless connectivity...you can't get it without bluetooth... Everytime we are talking about games...360 people are quick to point out how the ps3 has no games, and that it can't "compete" with the 360's awesomeness...and they always point out how Sony pushed all this other stuff, besides games, onto the buyers...so at least admit it now...all that other stuff is what this article is saying that the 360 can beat also...and its completely obvious that this editor has either A.) never messed around with the PS3's multimedia capabilities, or B.) is a total idiot on most levels (the fact that is Gamepro, this should not be ruled out), or C.) all of the above... 360 has superior online services and better/more games right now...as far as a media hub and overall home theatre tie-in... The PS3 is superior in almost everyway...Not by a landslide...the 360 is capable of a lot of things also...it is simply ignorant to say that it does them better or easier...
This post seems like it's just throwing fuel into the fire for fanboys. It's an endless debate but all of it comes down to is preference, different strokes for different folks. All these articles are getting annoying.
I can think of a lot more reasons to why the 360 is a much better console than the ps3. But the number one reason in my opinion is the quality and quantity and variety of games out now and coming this year. Its far ahead of what the ps3 has offered or will offer. I'm so glad they didn't add in HD dvd or blu ray...or wi fi....that would have put the price closer to the overprised ps3...and that would mean that it would be selling a measily 80k a month like the ps3 did last month. MS made all the right choices for a next gen console. Nintendo made all the right choices for a kiddy cheap toy console...and Sony messed up with the Cell and blu ray included in their offering...and the games suffer along with the console sales. They have shipped 5.5 million but yet have only sold about half of that. That is not good for the last two gen console champ. p.s ...I don't think many of you who talk about the media center features on the 360 understand what it is or what it does. Its unbelievable. You can browse online with it...you can listen to music, video's, pictures, ect.... You can check the latest sports scores, stats, and news. With video highlights ect....You get hd radio and you can watch recorded tv programs on your console. Just the media center features alone...blows away the ps3's offerring in that area. But you have to use it to believe it.
I do use both regularly on my home theatre...DLNA pretty much allows you to do the same thing with media center, big thing being you have Vista...It more or less allows access to your entire pc's harddrive, and anything on it...there are specific folders for the most part, but through Vista you can forward a lot more stuff than what the PS3 looks for automatically... now with XP, not so much...it will only forward your WMP 11 library to the ps3...the OS doesn't have DLNA built in, so only certain programs would allow it to function correctly... Its annoying for now how no album art is streamed...but that will probably be an easy firx in a later update... I kind of prefer how DLNA streaming becomes part of the XMB...its not a seperate application that is launched, it can just be streaming audio in while you are doing whatever else around the XMB...the media center extension feels clumsy to me...which isn't the 360's fault...its how I felt since the launch of XP MCE... to each his own though...I am not saying one is better than the other...just that no one can really say that the 360 blows the ps3 away or vice versa in media sharing...
You claim that you own a PS3, but if you do, then why is it not included in your info? In your info, you say that you have multiple 360's, but never mention a PS3. You don't include a gamertag for any system in the appropriate place. Your name is EliteGamer! That's an extremely biased name. It doesn't add up. You don't own a PS3. If you did, you would at least mention it in your info, or in the gamertag space. Look at my profile, it's open to anyone. I have my Xbox Live gamertag. I have my PSN gamertag. I use the info space to even tell you all my World of Warcraft characters. You can easily see that I'm 100% legit. YOU don't have that. If you really had a PS3, and were not just a lying fanboy, you would have included it in your profile somewhere. You didn't!
"I'm so glad they didn't add in HD dvd or blu ray...or wi fi" Well..Enjoy your lastgen disc. And enjoy the wires strung all over your house. Enjoy buying your next Xbox in a year or two. Cause the 360 won't last. I know I enjoy the Blu-ray, and love the fact that in the future, games will be HUGE. I also enjoy not having wires all over the place. (3 computers, and a ps3 in the house, WiFi is great.)
Am not even gonna lie the lack of custom soundtracks and the no ipod support is very annoying. Not to mention the crappy sound system. But all of this is updatable so am gonna be optimistic. The other stuff is so so i tried using the media center with ma 360 and ma vista and it was jst a waste of my time. Sure its nice to have but its 1 of those features i will never use
crappy sound system? I hope you are not victim of the ps3's volume control thing...it distorts sound worse than the first versions of Mega Bass in the 80's...be sure and turn that down to either normal, or below...anything above normal will absolutely gut audio playback quality of anything compressed (CD's will still sound fine...but AAC, ATRAC, MP3, etc will all sound like poop run over twice)...turn it down and everything is exactly like it should be... if this is not what you meant then sorry dude...It took me over a month to figure out why the hell all my crap sounded like junk...
I was gonna buy the ps3, but the xbox 360 has a free headset, so i was sold. I mean, thats just a steal. I wish the Dreamcast came with a headset. It would still be the #1 console! Oh and Bungie being an exclusive developer, now thats icing on the cake. No one needs Ubisoft, Square Enix, Capcom and Konami. With 5 games*, thats all you need with Bungie! C'mon now, I'm not gonna play the fanboy card, but those were some ridiculous "ways". *No flaming about the exact number of games made by Bungie...I don't care about your quick-google-search-fact-check ing smart-ass replies.
1. To fail to notice or consider; miss. 2. To ignore deliberately or indulgently; disregard. right, simple definition, clearly found in the title, pertaining to items that one may fail to notice or consider. In this particular case the failure to notice or consider features that one, an owner or future buyer of an xbox might miss. These are not features of which are readily looked at, such as price point, games library, etc. purely things that people may fail to notice. Much like features of other consoles get overlooked, the ps3 web browser, the ability to use the wii mote on the pc.
the 360 beats the PS3? That just can't be. KK told me a long time ago that Sony's not in competition with anyone ~ what's more, they don't care!lol http://www.joystiq.com/2006...
It just occured to me the other day that my 360 PLAYS DVD's!!! I have always used the feature, but just think how nice it is to be able to play all of your old movies... or new rentals without having to tack on some cheap DVD player to your setup And the Nintendo WII doesnt even play DVDs! "Ooooooo its $50 cheaper than the low end 360".... but dvds run anywhere from $40 and up Why doesnt anybody ever notice this?
The PS3 does play DVDs (and if you haven't heard it can upscale them too). Just letting you know ;)
Are GAMEPRO "editors" suceptible to bribery... He must have stock in Microsoft writing bullsh!t like that. I'll compile my own list (in no particular order)... 10. FREE ONLINE PLAY! 9. It runs quieter, the misses got cranky when she used to hear the aural equivalent of an F-15 fly by. 8. The biggest multimedia project in the history of the Netherlands (probably the moxt expensive video game in history), in excess of 50 million dollars US, Guerrilla Games' own Killzone 2. 7. The PS3 "plays" VERY nice with the PSP from any wi-fi hotspot in the world, no USB chord necessary thanks to remote play. 6. It's a SONY! Because 61% of 360s fail, I need a brand that connotes quality. No three red rings of death kind of sh!t over here! (The notorious lights have claimed THREE of my bro's 360s already) 5. Blue-ray, dual-layer discs currently hold 50 gigs as opposed to the maximum 9 that DVDs offer! They speculate that Toshiba will get 100 gig blue-ray discs in the near future. 4. A WEB BROWSER! You know the ability to access the world wide web? 3. The controllers don't need double-A batteries, leave it to the gamecube's wavebirds, Bill. 2. WI-FI, I don't need to play one hundred for an ugly 100 dollar appendage that uses up a usb port like my little brother. 1. The PS3 can even cure cancer.. not exactly but it contributes to colossally to ongoing research (See, Stanford Uni.'s [email protected] project.) I could go on forever and talk about the lack of a fat-ass power brick or the inclusion of a D-pad that is comprised of actual buttons. Even the motion sensing or how it upscales DVDs. The PS3 has HDMI 1.3, not 1.2 like the 360 elite, which all of a sudden doesn't seem all that... ELITE! What a joke, the only thing they did right was paint it black lol The list could be longer, but I don't wanna make "Marbles" crap his already soiled, MS Branded thong.
10. FREE ONLINE PLAY! - You get what you pay for, Sony's online service has when through so many updates allready and it still can't compete with Xbox Live. 9. It runs quieter, the misses got cranky when she used to hear the aural equivalent of an F-15 fly by. - Whoop de do, when your playing a 360 game chances are you will here the actual game over the sound of the console... not a selling point fo either consoles. 8. The biggest multimedia project in the history of the Netherlands (probably the moxt expensive video game in history), in excess of 50 million dollars US, Guerrilla Games' own Killzone 2. - Killzone 1 was a huge disappointment and is just an average FPS game, why should the masses care? 7. The PS3 "plays" VERY nice with the PSP from any wi-fi hotspot in the world, no USB chord necessary thanks to remote play. - And how many people actually use that functionality? 6. It's a SONY! Because 61% of 360s fail, I need a brand that connotes quality. No three red rings of death kind of sh!t over here! (The notorious lights have claimed THREE of my bro's 360s already) - Like the constant Hardware failures with the PS2 that unlike Microsoft, Sony ignored and forced the consumer into buying new consoles. Also the 61% failure rate is out of a very flawed Intnernet study where only 3, 000 people actually participated in out of over 10 million. Only an idiotic fanboy would use that to prove a point. 5. Blue-ray, dual-layer discs currently hold 50 gigs as opposed to the maximum 9 that DVDs offer! They speculate that Toshiba will get 100 gig blue-ray discs in the near future. - Fact: The Majority don't care, as long as there are two formats, the majority of DVD users will not buy into either Bluray or HDDVD. This isn't a physical format change like it was from VHS to DVD. 4. A WEB BROWSER! You know the ability to access the world wide web? - Chances are if you allready have an internet connection, you have a PC. 3. The controllers don't need double-A batteries, leave it to the gamecube's wavebirds, Bill. - Neither does the 360, its called a rechargable battery pack. 2. WI-FI, I don't need to play one hundred for an ugly 100 dollar appendage that uses up a usb port like my little brother. - Wireless presently is crap for gaming, causes to much Lag. 1. The PS3 can even cure cancer.. not exactly but it contributes to colossally to ongoing research (See, Stanford Uni.'s [email protected] project.) - It can't cure cancer is what you mean. Rant is done.
I hate these articles, but that was indeed a weaksauce list.
Simply because it's got what the PS3 can't offer at this very moment. They are: ( 1 ) A GOOD PRICE/ BETTER DEALS ( 2 ) Has got a stack of great/good games to choose from. ( 3 ) Orthopaedically designed control pads w/ force feedback ( 4 ) Their marketing staff actually delivers on most of the promises they post for the press and their buyers. ( 5 ) More discounts coming...
dude, you can't say it has a better price, better deals AND conclude your list by saying that "more discounts are coming"... that's absurd. Having a hard time coming up with reasons, that's pitiful. As for ur controller arguments, you might mean ergonomics (which of course the 360 pad doesn't use), ifu had half a brain you'd know orthopedics (yea, u were off with the spelling) deals with the skeleton and stuff.. no need for mattress lingo in these forums wiseguy
I'm sorry, just when it seemed the war was cooling down. Perhaps for our children peace talks may start, i guess all we can do now is sort out the dead. PS3 vs. X360 war shall be the end of us all.
One thing that makes me think "why did he even right this?", is that in the beginning of the article he says "Sure, games like Gears of War and Halo 3 are the obvious reasons to justify an Xbox 360 purchase. But what else do you get that makes Microsoft's console better than the PS3?" And then adds Bungie at the end of the list. That's like compiling a list of reasons why the PS3 is better excluding the built-in wireless, then at the end saying, "AND ITS GOT BUILT IN WIRELESS" 5-6 interesting points I never really thought a lot about, but, he's an idiot. And mind you, only 2 of them can't be "fixed" by a firmware upgrade.
This list is super weak as many have pointed out. There ARE a few reasons why 360 is more compelling than PS3...HOWEVER, that list is shrinking especially because the PS3 is having features added at like 10X the rate of the 360..We will see, but I think by the end of this year many who originally thought no way will be seriously considering adding a PS3 to the collection, in addition to the 360.
Thoes are the weakest reasons I have ever heard for a console ot win..lol bungie wat other games have they made
A sad little game for the PS2 called Oni, Sony kicked them to the curb after that garbage... Halo 1 and 2 are brilliant tho
Also Bungie is responbsible for the award winning Marathon trilogy back in the mid 90's.
I don't like 360 but even I can create stronger arguments in its favour. Man, what's happening with these sideshow freaks. "Bungie a X-factor" ? C'mon, for next-gen ? with such Halo-3 visuals and physics ? and a gameplay as old as Quake3Arena ? have a life man...and he is judging Bungie's influence on 6-years old xbox-live with just 6-months old PSN...I mean c'mon, there is going to be HOME on PS3 and then there will be dev-specific themes for personal space in 3D, what charm would a dev-effect will sustain on the 2D xblive space ? Just imagine a fully 3D personal space based on Silent Hill complete with lighthouse, fog and further unlockables...don't forget MGS and Mortal Kombat based themes as well... "PC-friendly game ports" !!! HaHaHa, he is saying this as if PC gaming defines games industry...man, in the current-gen, almost entire gaming is defined by PS2 games...be them RPGs or platformers, fighting games or horror genre...PC had been totally scraped out. So its console gaming that is going to define next-gen, see Lair's physics and visuals or check out Little Big Planet's creativity...its console gaming that is pushing the industry forward, the original xbox was not saved even when it supported PC games too. "ipod friendly 360 ?", it can be argued anyway one may, there n-times more cell-phones in the world than ipods, and the best connectivity of these phones is through PS3 alone !!! "Custom Soundtracks" is no deal. This functionality will so obviously be there on PS3...man, this jerk couldn't just find another argument ! "Windows Media Center Compatibility", with a standard HDD, PS3 can run any OS Sony allows it to do, its a functionality that'll be there in due time. "Xbox Live" ...HaHaHa, 6 years old service and PSN already reaching its featureset in just 6 months. After the launch of Home, LBP, EyeVaio and PS-EYE itself, xblive will be a service of Jurassic period ! "Headsets Included", oh c'mon dude, PS3 has Blu-Ray playback functionality included, motion- sensing tech included, standard HDD included...what's your point you lame crybaby !
