Let me just start out by saying I am a Xbox 360 fan who Does not care so much for Microsoft. I feel like Microsoft has nickle and dimed this generation of console owners over and over again.
because i love them both
For Me, Id Go With PS3.
i like my game console to be as next gen as it could be so i pick ps3
Responding to these articles is like asking to have your bubbles raped, I know... just take it easy on me. I own all 3 consoles... I bought my PS3 first and it is my main gaming console. I paid $500 for the MGS4 bundle and have never felt that I haven't gotten my moneys worth. I paid $300 for my 60gb 360 2 weeks before they did the price drop, so yeah I was a little bitter about that one. I don't dislike the console, I just waited until I was more comfortable with the reliability, and I got a Jasper 360 and am happy with the system. To me it is second to my PS3. If there is one console that I feel is an overall horrible value, it is my Nintendo Wii... they gouge you with every accessory, have too much shovelware and don't drop the prices on their older good games. Nintendo has been a real put-off this gen IMO. This is just my opinion.
ps3 for exclusives and some multiplatform games, xbox for exclusives and majority of multiplat games both systems have great arcade games, both systems are awesome, there's no way on earth you can say one console sucks(except in n4g and fanboys world lol), it's all about choice and pure preference and that's one of reasons why fanboys are always angry, fanboy anger = enemy company doing the right thing
And yet you still bought a 360 .. your an idiot.
My take is the Gameboy Color. It had both Poke'mon Red AND Poke'mon Blue. And not only that, it also had Poke'mon Gold AND Silver, and Rayman, and Wario Land 1,2,&3. Yeah, what a handheld. It was amazing. And despite the fact that I was staring at a 2 inch screen, despite the fact that I only heard bleeps and bloops instead of real audio, it was my all-time most played machine, and I love it more than anything. Both PS3 and 360 pale in comparison. You see, the predictable buffoons above me are too busy sucking their favorite company's c*ck to stop and actually play games.
why not buy both? the xbox is really cheap at this point. and it's easy to find a 2nd hand HDD drive. If you like Games on PS3 and xbox. I owned both at a time and Im bout to get a PS3 in a few.
but if i got a free 360 / could afford one i wouldn't mind =)
For me it's going to have to be 360. below: Why because I don't share your opinion? /S
^^^ wow, that's shocking! /s
Well I already own both and love it that way. However, I do kind of agree with him. It's hard to explain, I still love my 360 and the games on it, but I am not a fan of some of the crap MS have managed to pull of this gen. sony started out the same and over time they have redeemed themselves in my eyes. MS have done the opposite.
1. WE are in a recession 2. Neither system is "cheap" as you say. By the time you end up buying your accessories, wires, games, tax, XBOX LIVE....you will have easily spent near $500 for either system. General people, unlike us hardcore gamers, are not likely to go out dropping $500'ish dollars at the drop of a hat....especially not now.
I own all 3, but they certainly came to me in different ways. I bought the Wii on Day 1 because I've always loved new things and new ways to play games. I enjoy it, and have played some great 'new' style games for it, but admittedly, it was purchased for the kids. (daughter 12, son 6) and they absolutely love it. (I sneak in some Super Mario MP with my son constantly.) We have ~20-25 Wii games, and 4 controllers and lots of other assessories. I bought the PS3 in June of '07 when the 60 gig launch model was dropped to $500. I bought the PS1 and PS2 both early in their cycles, and trusted Sony enough to spend half a grand. My 60 gigger blew it's power supply somewhere between marathonin' Demon's Souls and marathonin' Uncharted 2, last October. I wasn't happy about the $149 repair bill, but I've had luck with hardware in generations past and figured my time was just up. I'd be pissed if it happened again, you can be sure. We have close to 40 PS3 games, 4 controllers (LBP with the family) and other assessories like the PSeye, blu-tooth keyboard, etc. I just recently bought a 360 elite with some games I've been jonesing to play including...Viva Pinata, Dead Rising, Gears 1, Gears 2, and Fable 2. It came with Halo ODST and Forza 3, for $250 and I got a bonus at work and was feeling saucy. I'm also interested in Alan Wake and didn't feel like waiting any longer. I have 6 or 7 360 games, one controller and no assessories yet. (house is hard-wired for ethernet) Of the 3 consoles, I play the PS3 the most and that will continue for the forseeable future. I love the games I've played on the 360 and I'm glad I bought it, but it still makes me nervous and i install them all to the HDD just to be 'safer'. I'm looking forward to a long generation, because shelling out for 3 sets of hardware with all the bells and whistles is expensive. -CadDad
I used to be more on 360, but afrer 3 RRoDs I told myself, to just buy another one for the single player exclusives or if a multiplat is way better than the PS3 version(like Bayonetta's scenario). So that's how it is, I choose PS3 for online, the exclusives and overall media, and 360 for the single player only just to avoid another RRoD. But I love them both!
I hate people saying "get both". No. I don't want to. It's not worth the money having a Wii or 360 again just for a couple of exclusives. My 360 done me well but anything that's worth playing I can get on PS3 or if I had to, get it on PC. I agree with the chap above. Who really wants to be buying things twice? I got a PS3 and never looked back.
THREE generations of some of the best AAA titles this industry has ever seen. >:D
For those that cannot, I urge you to go where your friends are. It's just that simple. With online gaming getting so big these days, having an online where your friends are is the most important.
I'd go with the 360. Main reason being because all my friends are on Live. I know the PS3 is superior to the 360 in a lot of ways, but in the end, what matters most for me is the connectivity to my friends. I only have like, one real friend on PSN, compared to about 10 or so on the Xbox. Might not seem like a lot, but these are close friends I'm talking about here.
1. Gears of War 2. Gears of War 2 3. Mass Effect 4. Mass Effect 2 5. Splinter Cell Conviction 6. Forza 2 7. Forza 3 8. Crackdown 9. Condemned 10. Fable 2 11. Halo 3 12. Left 4 Dead 13. Left 4 Dead 2 14. Metro 2033 15. PGR 3 PS3 getting pwn3d dawg.
That list has some good games. But not enough for pwnage..
I'll play along... 1. God of war III 2. Uncharted 3. Uncharted 2 4. Demon’s Souls 5. Folklore 6. Gran Turismo 5 7. Heavy Rain 8. infamous 9. Killzone 2 10. LittleBigPlanet 11. MAG 12. Metal Gear Solid 4 13. Ratchet and Clank Future series (3 games but I’ll take it easy on you and just list it as one) 14. Resistance FOM 15. Resistance 2 And to do you one better… 16. Valkyria Chronicles Your turn...
If you want better games and more forward thinking innovations then the PS3 should be the system being bought over the Wii and 360. Because people went the Wii60 route in the beginning of this generation the games are just starting to come out.
then again I like games not so much the systems that play them. If I have to get a console for a game then I get a console for the game. Expensive...yes Worth it...depends on personal preference (for me...YES) Some will take offense at this last part: by owning all systems ensures that "NO" game goes unplayed due to exclusive this or multiplat that. Limitations on games due to console choices FTL! All games FTMFW!
i prefer ps3 for FREEEEEEE online gaming enough said im not a gears fan or halo fan never played mass effect so cant judge that game
chavstation sucks.FACT the ps3 is for super chavs like sir ken kuntarugi. he lives in caravan next to mcdonalds,runnin a motor generator to power his ps3.he syphons petrol from cars he steals to run the generator.to get online he leeches mcdonalds openzone internet. just a day in the life of a typical ps3 fanboy.i know its tough to admit your worthless.but its like therapy when you go onto the psn,you can share your self loathing with other chavs. :):):):):):):):):):):):):):): ):):::::)))):(
Xb**** sucks.FACT the xbox360 is for super b****es like Wrathman. he lives in caravan next to mcdonalds,runnin a motor generator to power his ps3.he syphons petrol from cars he steals to run the generator.to get online he leeches mcdonalds openzone internet. just a day in the life of a typical xbox360 fanboy.i know its tough to admit your worthless.but its like therapy when you go onto the psn,you can share your self loathing with other chavs. :):):):):):):):):):):):):):): ):):::::)))):( See I can say idiotic things too.
PS3 all the way, and all these damn stupid bots will see... since better games and a better system means nothing to them, it's down to sales, but PS3 will overtake 360 it's only a matter of time.
;) ;) :O ;-) :):):):)
;(;(:p ;-( :(:(:(:(
Im picky so i picked ps3..
lol dvd 9
proves the mentality of n4g ps3 users it's indeed a ps3 fanboy cease-pool central
so people that own an xbox arent allowed to think that dvd 9 is outdated and should no longer be used for gaming? people that own 360s arent allowed to not like dvd 9?
blu-ray>dvd 9 anyday but someguys here live in a fantasy world were they believe that ps3 games are 10 times larger than xbox games
love me some halo but got to go with my ps3.
ps3 is the future and the future is ps3
Why must you put your psn Id and gamertag in everyone of your posts? It's just one of those things I am getting tired of reading it on this site. Would you kindly stop it?stop it http://m.youtube.com/index?...
Xbox 360 well because of Halo Gears Xbox Live L4D Mass Effect. I'm an xbox addict i guess you could say. I like to play my music when playing my games and not having to be worried about mandantory instalation and crappy ports. My take on the PS3 is small controller bland PSN playstation move exclusives don't sell. Basically Sony lied about the PS3 when it launched. PS3 feels like a lonely console to me so I'm sticking with my 2 Xbox 360's. Thank you Microsoft for all the memorable moments. Xbox 360 best console ever
Haha... and I was actually just thinking about how I swear that the Xbox controller was designed for fat people's hands. Good for shooters, bad for most everything else.
Exclusives don't sell? Even if that were true, that's a stupid reason to not enjoy a system YOURSELF. Uhoh, some guy in Cambodia doesn't like the 360. Guess I can't enjoy it either.
PS3 4 ME MY 360 JUST WENT ALL RED RING ON ME AGAIN.
PS3!!!!!!!!!!! FVCK BREAKBOX 3FIXME
I own both so I don't have to choose.
Enjoying the best of both worlds!
Both have good and bad. I've had 1 of each system die on me so they are about equally hated and loved in my house at this time.
Very true. It also boils down to preference when it comes to owning consoles. I prefer the PS3 but i won't shoot down the 360, everyone has the right to whatever they want to play with.
Both the 360 and PS3 have failed on me twice. :( I prefer the PS3 but its mainly due to its non-gaming functionality. I usually play console games alone so I don't really get the full benefit of Xbox Live. While Live may be better than PSN in some ways, almost all of my friends game exclusively on Steam, so I very rarely get to take advantage of the features that aren't available on PSN. I think both consoles are great and any true gamer should play on every available gaming platform.
unless you want to enjoy that brand new fresh from the factory refurb aroma over and over! i hear by the 3rd and 4th its still great, but nothing is as special as your "1st time"!
I prefer the PS3 in general. Sure, I only have the PS3, but I have played enough hours on the 360 to make some informed judgments. Firstly, the guy is right when he says the PS3 offers you more out of the gate. I see Hard Drives and wireless adapters attached to my friends' 360's, and I think of the money they have to spend on those peripherals. Secondly this might just be me, but the noise of the 360's fan is twice as loud as the PS3. It was seriously distracting when playing Halo 3 online. One thing I do envy about the 360 is how they can play music on all games, not like 50% on the PS3. Sony should make it mandatory for devs to include this feature :). I don't care about cross game voice chat really, I don't think I'd want to chat to someone while trying to have fun on another game. I tried it at my friend's house, it is a nice feature but it soon became a mere distraction for me. Also, besides Fable and Mass Effect (which I bet will come out on PS3 next year), I don't really have fun with any 360 exclusives. I liked Halo 1 & Wars but the rest aren't fun for me. Ahh well, happy first day of the month everyone.
True, the loud noise of the Xbox drowns out the tv. I have to turn my surround sound up louder when I turn on my Xbox.
OMG it time for 360 fanboys to accept the fact that the PS3 is way more powerful than the 360. i mean if this was a boxing match they would have thrown the towel in already. why do they still say slightly or a little bit more powerful, its a fact now and we all know it
I prefer the my PS3. I have both but my Xbox is only for exclusives and my PS3 is for it's exclusives and all multi plats, watching Blu-Rays, storing all of my music, pictures, movies, and other media needs. After my 3rd RROD I just don't trust my Xbox. I'll dust it off when Alan Wake is released though.
Why do you still have one after 3 RRoD's?
Because they replaced it for free. If I had to pay then that would be a different story. Besides, I want to play Alan Wake.
I'm still skeptical based on your history of posts but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. I actually had to pay for mine which pissed me off but I also had the Blu-ray drive on my PS3 stop working so they can both go f' themselves as far as I'm concerned. But $100 or $150 (depending on which service you are using) and a lot of aggravation is still a small price to pay to continue to enjoy my favorite hobby.
I am actually getting ready to buy an XBOX360 this week. I want to get the Splinter Cell Conviction bundle, but the real reason is Alan Wake, holy smokes! Any multiplat's will be on my PS3. The other game Im looking forward to is Fable 3, fo sho! Maybe I will also go and check out Gears.
I have had to replace my xbox 4 times so on my 5th white one, my son now has it, i had the red one, traded it in when it started telling me my games were dvds, i have a elite now so thats 7 xboxs, iv had 1 ps3 since launch if you dont include me trading for a slim, but you know what? i still play xbox, my opinion on the question though is simple, ps3, the games i have played on that console have just been on a whole other level. love both but if i had to marry one it would be the ps3.
I got my 60 gig fat ps3...still kicking though and I'm planning to choose a PS3 slim.
...as I like the lower power consumption for the slim. Just not looking forward to backing up and reinstalling software :) even if I can do it overnight lol.
owning all of the consoles. its about the games.. before I was buying more 360 games now especially since multiplat titles are = or as good on the PS3, PS3 is dominating my game purchases this year I have 3 buy 360 games... I didnt get out of March without buying 3 PS3 games. I cant believe the author never mentions games. He talks about "slight diff in graphics"...whoa is he out of it
BUT HONESTLY IF I COULD ONLY AFORD ONE OF THEM THEN YEAH IT WOULD BE THE PS3.WHY?ITS PRETTY SIMPLE IM A GAMER AND THE PS3 HAS A BETTER GAMING EXPERIENCE FOR ME.PERIOD.PEACE AND GAMING YALL
Dont Like the Outdated controller on the Ps3 .Dont Like the Interface on the PS3 .Dont Like the Load time or the Updates on the PS3 .Blurays Cost 2 Much.1 Bluray movie cost as much as Xbox Live for one Year and that's it.My Choice is the 360 .40 million people cant be Wrong.
40million ppl? Don't make me luagh. Bluray too expensive? I guess HDtv is too expensive too. But then again, there is no need for an HDTV if u game on 360
how many more of these articles do we need? but the answer is PS3
I had a XboX360 for 2 years. Actually, Ive had 3 rroded Xboxes in 2 years. I didn't like the exclusives for the system. I felt gears of war was simplistic, childish & repetitive. Halo 3 was fun for 3 weekends & was shelfed for it's kiddiness. I didn't feel the online made any sence. It was like training skirmishes instead of the war feeling I was looking for thanks to those commercials. I got forza and enjoyed it briefly. I noticed that the only games I enjoyed was Tom Clancys Rainbow 6 online, Ghost Recon Online & Modern Warfare. Why was I allowing my credit card to be charged automatically to play these games on a system that kept breaking down because it looked like it couldn't survive my gaming habits. Even though the ps3 was a Egg when it first released the online was free & it had a huge hardrive. I took care of it & nursed this Egg & before my eyes it hatched into a beast that loves me. Microsoft points make me sick & Disrespected. PSN uses real currency. PS3 has a browser & a bluray & I thought it was more than fair to give up cross game chat & in-game music for it since I rarely even used those features. Again for free so now I had all this extra money for my netflix account & more games! The desicion was easy. Games Vs. Social Hype. I believe games are art. I enjoy deep competition. It always seemed to me that Playstation is custom made for me & Sony just "Gets" me. They have Passion where as Microsoft , looking back at my experience with them & today, I think they think gamers are morons. Fortunatly, I don't care about gears & halo so I don't have to suffer with the outdated, lack of true exclusives, pay to play online, overpriced accesories, dvd9 short games, same old formula gameplay & lemon hardware. I'm happy with my gigapet monster. PS3 is a young Dragon right now & I'm exited for the future. I can see the xbox360 being discontinued today & Microsoft again abadoning the market to save money & start fresh with a system for casuals. They just aren't hardcore enough & the NXE, Avatars, Natal & it's Games Prove that to me.
I Have 2 Say that Were Both Right.For every thing you feel about the PS3 i feel the same about the 360 .I bought 2 PS3 and took them back.The Controllers are so Outdated is a Shame.I Hate the Interface of the PS3 with a Passion.Sloppy Mess with Glitter all over it.I Don't Like the Load times at all and the Updates are the Worst Part.Im going to Prove that i had a PS3 ,Now why do you have to charge you controller on that short cable when you get the PS3.That Suc# when the 360 controller is Ready to Go Out of the Box. No Cross chat , No BC . I love Gears of War and Halo but most of all its the 360 's Controller that Win's it For Me .
360 ready out of the box? Do u mean batterie included ready, because last I remember, you had to zhit out $30 bucks just for rechargable batterie. And the new xbox interface is just a flipped copy of the ps3.
