I thought this article was going to go real deep into the comparison, don't bother it is only skin deep.

Nothing about HDD speeds, HDMI spec, and heat dispersion test.

I need an Xbox 360 to replace my 3 dead ones so maybe I'll buy a new one.

NecrumSlavery2811d ago

I suggest not buying another one. But what so I know? I am just a happy PS3 gamer I guess

GrieverSoul2811d ago

At this point with the disc scratch thing on the rise again, Í will stay away from it at least until Xmas.

FarEastOrient2811d ago

I have all the systems, especially important when doing test between the three.

Jamie Foxx2811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

wheres the

rechargeable controllers
7.1 dolby surround sound
standard 2.5 interchangeable HDD

they do a comparison thats so thin to make both seem equal then add the wrong price for the ps3 (its $299 not $399...bias american media at its worst, false information once again in favor of microsoft

Rumor2811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

the 250gb ps3 was $349.99 not $399 :/

correct me if im wrong plz

ProjectVulcan2811d ago

Agrees with Jamie Foxx. since when were touch sensitive buttons important, and rechargeable controllers/bluray etc not worth mentioning? LOL

darthv722811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

I find it funny how this model is getting stuff added and the slim was getting stuff taken away.

They both have 250gb drives, both now have wifi, 360 has more usb ports, both have optical audio, both have hdmi ps3 1.3 / 360 1.2 :-(, Both are quieter and smaller in size, that really only leaves the disc format.

It isnt often that a revised console comes out with additions instead of subtractions but if you want to subtract something from the new 360...memory card slots.

Oh i forgot, bluetooth in the ps3. i dont use allot of bluetooth devices so it didnt stick out to me. rechargable what. I find it easier to use batteries and if i want to recharge my controller, i buy that battery. Heck, even the wii doesnt have rechargable controllers by default so it really is not that big an issue to some. Others however want it to be.

bluray is the only difference hardware wise..

No its not. Really, think about it.

(eg, External PS, No Bluetooth, No Standard Rechargeable Controllers, No Standard HD and many more things)

I seriously cant believe the 360 still has an external PS....

EDIT Again.

And as for "transparency" with Media Servers that arent strictly MS Based ?

sikbeta2811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

Jamie Foxx nailed it, I don't want to keep going but this is more like a Superficial Comparison, in a More Complete Comparison the PS3 Still Ahead by Far...

ShinMaster2811d ago

Touch sensitive buttons??? WTF?!

PS3 has touch/pressure sensitive buttons. Even the PS2 had them.

This article is bull. 250GB PS3 is not 299. IT'S $249!

No noise test either!

EDIT: No decibel test either! (there! Happy now?!)
EDIT 2: In picture 1 of 6, it looks like the X360 is kinda "melted" on the side. Is that normal or bad pic quality?

secksi-killer2811d ago

hit getting, wrote for fanboys non-articles before!

webeblazing2811d ago

one have blu-ray one doesnt the end

tatotiburon2811d ago

there is something in the manual that said "WARRANTY" you should call them

SillySundae2811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

It saved me tons of cash whenever my console broke.
(Mine broke three times, company was nice enough to replace it everytime). Not gonna say which company.

Of course I can't bill them for my frustrations
(lots of them due to hassle).

villevalorox2811d ago

lol, did you not watch the video at ppl yelling at that guy who moved the 360 with the disk in it? I would say DON'T!!! buy a new one, one little bump and i have a feeling your poor game will be so dead lol.

Razmossis2811d ago

One has a Blu-ray player built in, the other doesn't.. nuff said

Rhythmattic2811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

Crap "defined" comparison.

Jamie Foxx2811d ago

read my above post the realise even with minor atributes taken away the ps3 still has far more features

darthv722811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

some see value differently than others. that is not a crime but simple human nature. Rechargable controllers...why is that such a big thing for some people? The 360 controller actually has the luxury the ps3 one doesnt. it can use both types of batteries. Same for the wii controller.

Replacing a ps3 controller battery or replacing the whole controller...which is more cost effective in the long run?

You are absolutely right in that whatever features have been removed from the ps3 have been minor you can't argue the fact that they have been removed where as the 360 has had features added.

NEVER have I seen that in all the console generations prior unless it was a convergence such as the CDX was a genesis and cd in a single design or the turbo duo. Usually you remove little things people may not notice but the things removed from the ps3 to make the slim were pretty noticeable.

ps3 is still the better value because of the bluray in my opinion. the new 360 has done a remarkable job of closing the missing tech gap with wifi internal. One less thing people will b!tch about but they will still complain about no replaceable hdd of any size and rechargable controllers.

fedex6822811d ago

Is it 1.2 or 1.3 or 1.4? I cant access the link at work :(

Downtown boogey2811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

I think the new 360 looks very good and I find it odd that PS3 got uglier with the Slim...

WTF is this, PS3 Slim costs $299, I Know I Bought It.

Cevapi882811d ago

the 120 GB version...the 250 GB is $399 i believe

Hideo_Kojima2811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

Thats kind of silly if you buy the 250GB PS3 Slim because you can just get the Slim 120gb... buy a 320GB 7200rpm and change it for a total price of £378...

Bigger better faster hardrive for 20 dollars less and an extra 120GB which you can sell for $40 on Ebay... PS3 Slim 320GB 7200rpm for $338

Edit: @DWeezy91 Oh thats much more like it.

Dlacy13g2811d ago

Amazon has a Fathers day 250GB bundle for $349 but they list the standard 250GB for $399 so you sorta are both right.

bruiser812811d ago

HDD size dont really matter with the PS3, mine is 500 gig lol

JohnnyAkiba2811d ago

I still have 60gb. I dont need more. lol

Noami2811d ago

u still get more if u buy the 299 ps3...if u want a 500gb hdd just buy one...i got one for 36$. and u still get better sound and blue ray on ps3.

We need people like Digital Foundry to get their hands on the system.. They go really into detail, those guys. :)

Bellcross2811d ago

When the 360 gets a Blu ray drive call me, otherwise no contest.

Ps3 slim wins.

basicsameh5142811d ago

ill call you when the ps3 gets backwards compatibility

Noami2811d ago

ps3 has backwards compatibility you see both xbox360 and ps3 play game from their first console w.

dragon822811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

The PS3 actually plays more BC games than the 360 does. Every PS3 on the market can play PS1 games and some can play PS2 games too. Xbox 360 has a very limited list of Xbox games that can be played.

How about you call me when you stop being a fanboy and learn what the hell you are talking about. Thanks.

Hideo_Kojima2811d ago

In 2008 I decided to buy a next gen console... play next gen games.

But if I wanted to play last gen games I would have bought a 360 or a PS2.

PS - Not every 360 has a hard drive so not every 360 can play Xbox 1 games.

Somnipotent2811d ago

still harping about bc? smh.

Bellcross2811d ago

And I'll leave a message saying I don't give a shit.

unrealgamer582811d ago

And I'll call you when people give a sh!t about kinect lol

Perjoss2811d ago

yeah because there are no games on dvd9 that get over 90 out of 100 review scores....

mittwaffen2811d ago

Just the word "Blu-Ray" give them all a hard-on. Little do they know most people watch their HD content via Digital/Sat.

Next gen Digital content will be pushed, hard drive space is cheap as hell these days.

kewlkat0072811d ago

I always thought, "More Space = Better Quality" automatically.


vhero2811d ago

all ps3 have backwards compatibility with a ton of ps1 games and I can mention a ton of them that all sold more than halo. FFVII for one.. A game you won't ever see on 360.

mittwaffen2811d ago

It cannot play PS2 games, PS1 games are considered 'Arcade Games'. IE XBLA - Perfect dark N64 (Same time frame as PS1).

Atleast I hope he knows they play PS1 games.....
