Cynamite.com compare the tech dates of the two Slim consoles.
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.
I suggest not buying another one. But what so I know? I am just a happy PS3 gamer I guess
At this point with the disc scratch thing on the rise again, Í will stay away from it at least until Xmas.
I have all the systems, especially important when doing test between the three.
wheres the blu-ray rechargeable controllers blutooth 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
the 250gb ps3 was $349.99 not $399 :/ correct me if im wrong plz
Agrees with Jamie Foxx. since when were touch sensitive buttons important, and rechargeable controllers/bluray etc not worth mentioning? LOL
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 controllers...so 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.
darthv72 0m ago bluray is the only difference hardware wise.. No its not. Really, think about it. EDIT. (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 ?
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...
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?
hit getting, wrote for fanboys non-articles before!
one have blu-ray one doesnt the end
there is something in the manual that said "WARRANTY" you should call them
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).
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.
One has a Blu-ray player built in, the other doesn't.. nuff said
Crap "defined" comparison.
read my above post the realise even with minor atributes taken away the ps3 still has far more features
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.
Is it 1.2 or 1.3 or 1.4? I cant access the link at work :(
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.
Not 250GB one dumbass.
It's costs $350 Numb Skull.
the 120 GB version...the 250 GB is $399 i believe
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.
Amazon has a Fathers day 250GB bundle for $349 but they list the standard 250GB for $399 so you sorta are both right.
HDD size dont really matter with the PS3, mine is 500 gig lol
I still have 60gb. I dont need more. lol
u still get more if u buy the 299 ps3...if u want a 500gb hdd just buy one...i got one for 36$. 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. :)
When the 360 gets a Blu ray drive call me, otherwise no contest. Ps3 slim wins.
@bellcross ill call you when the ps3 gets backwards compatibility
But it does....
the slim doesn't
ps3 has backwards compatibility you see both xbox360 and ps3 play game from their first console w.
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.
In 2008 I decided to buy a next gen console... ...to 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.
still harping about bc? smh.
And I'll leave a message saying I don't give a shit.
And I'll call you when people give a sh!t about kinect lol
yeah because there are no games on dvd9 that get over 90 out of 100 review scores....
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.
.....lol I always thought, "More Space = Better Quality" automatically. -Sheesh
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.
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.....
Bit light on info isnt it? You get more than that on the back of the boxes.
I was hoping the tech comparison would go a little deeper.
There is no comparison! End of story! For $299 the PS3 slim packs in sooooo much bang for the buck compared to the 360-S. It's not even a fair comparison to the poor 360-S. It doesn't even have blu-ray or non-proprietary HDD.
M$ sould be happy with such a gullible fanbase
There's a difference between gullible and loyal. 360 players tend to be loyal. People that buy demos and somehow think their machine's ridiculously overpowering the other disregarding hard numbers because the company said so are gullible.
this is a bs article FAIL
In the first picture they have displayed, the new Xbox looked like it was warped or bent with a hammer or something. It doesn't look straight because of the weird kind of shape that they decided to use. http://translate.google.de/...
Internal PSU, and UNIVERSAL Voltage.
+ for ps3: takes 2.5 sata harddrives
both consoles have their pluses and faults at the end of the day it all comes down to the games just have fun and stop trying to make gaming so damn boring
Wow I am rather impressed that touch sensitive buttons are now considered a trait worth considering when buying a console. Look, the reality is, if you want only one console you should still choose the one with the exclusive games which you want to play most but you can now choose a 360 without the fear of a RROD or confusion o which model to track down) If you can afford both, all the better.
trust me they only put them on this list cause they removed them on the ps3 slim
I may actually buy an xbox 360 and after the sony conference i well decide if im going to sell my ps3 or not .
Ps3 demolishes the Xbox360 in every aspect. Me owning a 360 hate it so badly because of the kind service the only reason i can't sell it coz nobody is ready to buy it. Xbox360: 1.Pay to play online 2.Need to buy seperate rechargeable pack for controller which carries AA batteries. 3.Hard Drive very expensive and slow 4.No HDMI as of mine is launch console bought for $500. 5.Dvd FAIL!!! 6.Except Gears of War 1&2 is there anyother good game on my 360? Mass Effect i played on PC as you know i'm a hardcore gamer who needs to play all games. 7.Pay for everything. I mean WTF IS THIS! i download a picture pack and that cost money. You can't put your own themes. Just useless money sucking box. 8.Thought having a launch console. My system never failed on me. Because the max time i've gamed on 360 will be 1 hour.
so u feel good about ur life now?
Look at RDR for the clear fact
