Microsoft may have been the first HD-enabled system to launch this generation, but they aren't the leading platform when it comes down to their users using HD TVs.
Of course, cuz Sony is starting the 3D thing
No, not really.It probably has something to do with bluray though. 3d isn't even available "yet", you silly.
You can deal with this (PS3) or you can deal with that (360) you can deal with this (PS3) or you can deal with that (360) you can deal with this (PS3) or you can deal with that (360) I will deal with this (PS3).... Cause that's where HD"s @.... Couldn't help it.. Song's stuck in my head.... lol.

I prefer the Blacksheep 1991 original version but FBS is still great.
so when you connect to the PSN, does it give sony info on what telly you are using? or when im playing killzone2, do they know i'm playing on 40" fullHD samsung?? im interested in knowing this. then i want to know how they know how many 360s are connected to HD tvs? i dont know what to make of this in honesty
market research. Typically they'll pay an independent company to conduct a poll, where they'll get samples of 360 owners and PS3 owners. That's what we do at my work.
and also its because of the Blu-ray player no brainer. And blu-ray and PS3 are synonymous terms with HD. I mean just one look at the PS3 and the word HD just screams from it!
@originalpost HDTV's are not 3D TV's. This has nothing to do with 3D. I think it has something more to do with 360 users being cheap. It is considered the poor-man's console afterall.
You figure with the 360 the user has a choice which would make the system more flexible in the sense that you could game in sd or hd and watch movies in sd or hd upscaled. You really dont have that choice on the ps3. Yes you could game and watch in sd but really....who would want to? Thus the only real option for the ps3 is an hdtv. I am reminded of a clip that plays all the time at target in their electronics dept. "Without bluray...your hdtv is just a tv." The flipside could be like this. Without hdtv your bluray is just a dvd. Not to mention that the amount of sd tv's out there outnumber the hd ones by an insurmountable number. People buying a 360 can use what they have. People buying a ps3 NEED hdtv but then again, if they have 360 too then they can enjoy both is hd.
I just hope Greenburg won't come out or tweet or even do anything to counter THIS!
Everyone should have HD awesome-sauce
Very funny.. if you don't mind.. I will be using the term " awesome-sauce" in the near future. :)
lol the funny thing is i ain't got a hd tv i'm getting a projector a hd one in the coming months.but my ps3 is hooked up to the biggest tv in my house
Considering the blu ray factor, I think that's understandable.
Probably one of the main factors behind this reason.
I got my first PS3 when I purchased my first TV with HDMI in 2007, and I wanted a Blu-ray player for my new TV. The only reason I waited to purchase the PS3 and purchased the 360 first was that my previous HDTV only had component and was only capable of 1080i/480p, which forced some PS3 games that were 720p / 480p only into the lower resolution. This is not as much of an issue now as I have multiple 1080p displays, and most developers are supporting 1080i on the PS3.
Makes sense to me - I always think of HD more with PS3 anyway.
How did they found out about this?
surveys or magic
Sony can probably pull the output resolution settings from every PS3 connected to PSN.
but then how do they know how many 360s are connected to HD tvs?? because surveys cannot give an accurate figure.
if you have a big enough sample size it will be accurate enough. Say they sampled like 10,000 360 owners and 10,000 PS3 owners...
If you buy a PS3 you know you can watch blu ray, so of course do ps3 owner have more HD TVs. Besides more people who like quality buy a ps3, so again more ps3 user have HD TVs.
bought my hdtv before ps3 was even released. got it at best buy for 380 dollars because i caught them false advertising, kinda like how sony did with socom constipation.
Too bad I study law. If a concern writes wrong prices by an mistake you cant get it for that price at least in my country, because advertise is only an invitation to make an offer. Even if it is true what you say not all people went to best buy and got it there, you are an individual case.
Actually, Rome, in the States when a retailer sets a price on something, even by mistake, the consumer can get it at that price if he calls them on it.
WRONG AGAIN I also study law and an invitation to treat is a common doctrine in all common law countries, which include the USA, Canada, UK, Australia etc etc. If they sold it for 380 dollars then they they did so by mistake because they were well within their rights to not sell it.
How does Sony know how many 360's are connected to HDTV's I'm just wondering? "The percentage over Microsoft is lower than you might think, totaling 5% more according to Sony's Jack Tretton. Now you could make the argument that Microsoft has more units out their worldwide than Sony, so in reality the amount of users connected on HD TVs for each company may be virtually identical." So then this is news why? Edit: That's what I thought for BS from $ony
360 didn't have HDMI until later on, Sony had it from the start an said 1080p can only be done on it. After awhile Microsoft finally start putting it in their systems an started to act like they were doing it before Sony, kind of the same thing when it came to installing games on your PS3 (When will Microsoft learn).
I how people disagree with the truth. The only problem I would say about when PS3 had HDMI slot on their system is that they didn't have a HDMI cable with it. But it was to early for people to own a HD TV and I would say that was a smart move on their part. But now they got a bundle that has HDMI. With my first PS3 I got a HDMI cable for 20 bucks, never got to use it because I didn't have a HD TV but I knew at some point I would or my family would get me one and it did.
3-D, Blu-ray, displaying high res Photos and HD video from hard drive, this all require HD, vidzone, BBC iplayer and the online video store and I haven't even started with the games where the exclusive looks way better than any competing console in HD
BS!This kind of crap can only be approved on N4G!HDTV'S have hdmi ports component ports..PC ports,and i can have my PS3 my Xbox 360 and my Wii connected on HD!Even if the Wii only do 420i!SDF fanboys keep approving crap like this,that haves no sense or substance! And if you want full 3D HD gaming check this because both the PS3 and the xbox 360 cant handle full 3D HD gaming! http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/n...
SD gamer here, BUT I HAVE played many times on HD tv's, i take all my games t my mates house t check em out =D one day i will be part of that demographic @ all comments wow fanboys from both sides have shed their logic and are going all out RETARDED, bring it, its so entertaining =3 its like a train wreck!
props and bubbles for being old school
you sir are a lying. theres no way in hell that thing can fit in a book bag. the nerve take it to your friends house like thats can try again next time buster
SD gamers unite!
PS3 = Future Proof
Makes sense, 360 has always been the cheaper console which attracts a younger audience that can't afford a full hd set yet.
well said, u deserve a bubble
had a hdtv before i bought 360 or a ps3 back in 07, so this article isn't right at all, um to those miss inform about the 360, it does have hd learn how to properly hook ya box,and now i have a 3DTV with my 360 and ps3......... yes both can do 3DHD on my tv anyway..........
id be willing to say this data is incorrect on sony's part- the first and most of all ps3's we're/are released without hd cables. willing to bet that many 360 only owners have hd. more than ps3 only owners
simply because it is a blu-ray player. Watching blu-ray on SD defeats the purpose and it's a key reason why people buy the PS3.
butt hurt much???
HdTV, and I purchased a 360 and a bluray player back in 2006. at the time the 360 and bluray player combined was cheaper than a ps3. I purchased the ps3 slim when it came out.
The PS3 was one of the cheaper blu-rays.
i purchased a memorex bluray player back in dec 2007, they were selling it for 139.00 at woot.com in 2007 I had paid 299.99 for my 360 and 139.00 for the bluray player, which was still cheaper than the ps3, and at the time there werent any games on the ps3 that intrigued me. I was too busy playing gears 1. Things have obviously changed since then. Now I enjoy my ps3 as much as my 360. i still use the memorex back up blu ray player, and the cool thing is that it can play all manner of video files through the usb port, and I can hook up both ntfs and fat32 drives to it, ntfs being great for hd video rips. currently I have my memorex bluray player, my xbox 360, and my ps3 all connected to my hdtv, its nice.
Fail. In 2006 the cheapest blu-ray players were 'starting' at $800.
how can sony possibly know this
Yah, I can see that I have both PS3 & Xbox 360 hooked up to HD
Got a HDTV + PS3 and now a 'FreeView+ HD Recorder' ;-P ;-P ;-P (Shame all the TV Channels are not HD tho :-( Oh well 1 day maybe) ;) + No way will i add that out-of-date P0S the xBox 360 to my HD set-up!!! ;-D
i know they started off at a high price so they just guessing, but how would they know they wouldnt. i bought a hdtv after a brought the next gen consoles.
i bought HDTV when i had xbox 360. (before PS3 launched) I was using HD composite lead (unfortunately) for xbox 360. HDMI connector didnt exist in that console. I was amazed by the HD quality. Now that i sold xbox 360 and got PS3. I was using HDMI lead and the quality of HD was miles better. Im still happy with my current HDTV and PS3
There is no way sony can have to xbox Numbers unless microsoft gave them to sony. And we all Know thats not going to happen Sony pulled these numbers out of their asses betting the Wii casual market wouldnt know any better.
The ps3 is a bluray player.
I wouldn't even disrespect my PS3 with a SD set. HD all the way baby.
Well, naturally. The PS3 is more optimized for HD than the 360, with the blu-ray and all.
What a bunch of bog sony reports that ps3 owners enjoy tomato soup more than french onion, this site just gets lower and lower cmon seriously .
Not surprised by this at all, considering most 360 exclusive games are sub-HD anyway. Alan Wake Halo 3 Splinter Cell I could go on..
a random poll,umm no one really knows this for sure but of course PS3 has the Blu-Ray player to assume this but that's not how you determine the outcome.
And it's FULL HD.
I love having my PS3 hooked up to my beautiful, vibrant, rich, "Ambilight" HD TV. Flower in 1080p with Ambilight is absolutely BLISS. The 360 has a loooooong way to go before it can match that. Until then, it sits under my old tube tv from the late 90`s.
I think PS3 owners cares about HDTV / 3DTV/ True HD / 720p-1080p / DTS , etc..... But 360 owners are happy with 576p / AA batteries / DVD.....Most of 360 owners already told this on N4G
SD TV`s are way cheaper than HD, basically the same reason why most go for 360?
