PS3 vs Xbox 360: A Fair Comparison Between the Two Rivals

Talktogadgets is going to compare the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from the experience they had with them. This means that the comparison will not cover technical differences (GPU, CPU …) but only features and user friendliness.

My Neon destroys your Aston Martin.

LOL.

Own both, but if you can only get one. It`s PS3 all the way.

It Only Does Everything (even most 360 exclusives at some point)

John, Chapter 11, Verse 35

deadpoole2597d ago

Seriously ... if Xbox 360 wasn't part of this generation ... PS3 would have 100% better. Xbox 360 has bastardized this whole gen cuz of its limited storage space and forcing multiplat title to use its limited power.

If there was only PS3 ... developers would have been able to concentrate and able to develop far better graphics/gameplay games just like during PS2 era.

handheldwars2597d ago

Bastardized!?........... ROFL!

I dunno about "far better" graphics, but ya, maybe better gameplay.

PS: During the 6th gen, Xbox and GCN had better graphics than PS2.. so wtf do you mean by "just like during PS2 era" ??

dizzleK2597d ago

@deadpoole

hardly. devs are essentially lazy. why do pc ports of console games have nothing but better graphics then? why doesn't the pc version of something like rage still contain the maps and whatnot that had to be cut to fit on consoles? they have damn near unlimited power to work with but they go the quick &easy route instead of taking advantage. if the 360 didn't exist we'd still get varying shades of lowest common denominator.

darkcharizard2597d ago (Edited 2597d ago )

What if PS3 was released in 2005? -- oh that's an easy one, it would have sold much more than 360 by now!

spooky2052597d ago (Edited 2597d ago )

I dont go around jamming my religion down peoples throats and neither should you. Unless john, chapter 11, verse 35 is some sort of new game where jesus tears come down like flaming armaggedon while the survivors fight off hordes of demons and the 4 horsemen, we most likely dont want to hear about religion on a gaming website. You are most likely putting off more people than converting.

Aloren2596d ago

@deadpooole : You say the 360 is holding back the PS3 cause of its limited power and at the same time you mention how the PS2 was so awesome... well, guess what console had a limited power last gen ? That didn't stop it from being the best (and did you feel bad that it was "holding back" the GC and xbox ?).

And really, there's never been a generation of consoles where multiplat games were so close, even 4 years after launch; so there's either a global unanymous conspiracy against sony to dumb down every single multiplat game, or there's never been such a small difference between two systems.

fishd2596d ago (Edited 2596d ago )

Dude!WTF!
I am not "jamming my religion down peoples throats" , How aboutyou getting some sense of humor?

I am neither Christian nor religious,sheesh.Stop making Jesus weep with your stupid comments,console wars is more than enough :P

MadMan002596d ago

deadpool, lol ps3 has been bad in games for like 3 years, sales prove this.

Seriously what games actually made the Ps3 amazing that have been out more then 2 years?

Dee_912596d ago

"I must also note that most Multi Platform (games available on both consoles) games look better on the xbox 360 . This website carries out in depth comparisons of the graphics and performances and prove this point."

they look the same unless you count brightness and contrast etc as graphics..

blackbeld2596d ago

^^

PS3 is too powerfull that it can stand two generations the 360 and 720. LOL

PS3 is here to stay 10years. Unlike 360 only 5 years.

hatchimatchi2596d ago

"Seriously what games actually made the Ps3 amazing that have been out more then 2 years?"

Valkyria Chronicles
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
Resistance: Fall of Man
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (goty)
Folklore
Little Big Planet (goty)
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (goty)

Now please, I'd like to see a list of amazing TRUE exclusives that have come out for the 360 in the last 2 years. As it stands, I only have 2 of them, Alan Wake and Deadly Premonition and Alan Wake is questionable as to how amazing it is. Deadly Premonition on the other hand, is effing awesome.

It is never "FAIR" for the 360 when you are comparing it to the PS3:)

When it comes to Quality Hardware & Software the 360 doesn't stand a chance. That is why the 360 Elitist only talk about sales.

They cant brag about the reliability of their console
They cant brag about the technical features of their console.
They cant brag about the quality of their exclusive games.
They certainly have nothing to brag about when it comes to what the future holds.
They only have sales to entertain them. Poor little fellas.

Sony3602596d ago (Edited 2596d ago )

This is why Ps3 fanboys are dubbed the worst. What a snobby, ignorant fangirl comment.

Also note that no matter how ignorant and un-researched a comment as stupid as this may be, it's showered with "agrees" because it's Pro-Ps3.

There are 360 exclusives coming out that look just as good as what we have seen on the Ps3. Also as far as the hardware is concerned, you and about 95% of people who talk about it really have no idea what the hell you are talking about. So quit pretending like you do.

Reliability? The 360 slim has fixed that for good. In fact you 360 haters had to swarm all over the one that actually broke.

Technical failures? That's just reliability re-worded to make it look like another point.

Quality of exclusive games? Left4dead2? Mass Effect2? Halo Reach? Alan Wake? Gears of War to name just a few? Must you go into denial about another console having quality titles as well?

What the future holds? I don't even need to point out why this is easily the dumbest of all your 'points'.

If you're gonna make such a bold, fanboy comment at least back it up with some facts. Pathetic.

ZigZag Master2596d ago

Hey there....I own all 3 consoles and am not a fanboy to any of them...I just like good games....and the PS3 is quickly becoming my favorite because I admit I am a graphics whore and this machine simply can do things that my 360 will not.

Sony can't brag about the reliability of their console either. They have their own share of MAJOR problems.

I own a launch 60gb and I feel like I am walking on eggshells waiting for the thing to break down at any moment. It gets extremely hot, and the fan sounds like a hair dryer. There are legions of gamers who claim their PS3's stop functioning within minutes after firmware updates for Christs sake.

BigPenguin2596d ago

Really sony360? You are calling PS3 fanboys snobby and ignorant? After the shit you just posted? You did not post anything that even remotely backed your point up.

You say there are 360 exclusives coming out that look just as good as what we have seen on the PS3. How about you name even one? Would that have been to hard? You tell the guy you are replying to to quit pretending he knows what he is talking about right after you made that comment with nothing to back it up. You see, that comment is what is known as an unfounded claim. How about some proof next time, because at the last count, we are still waiting on something that looks as good as Tools of Destruction, a game that came out over 3 years ago.

You next comment was on reliability, and you say the 360S has fixed all those problems. Well I am sorry, you are right, they are fixed. It took then 5 effing years man, are you kidding me? You are counting that as a win for the 360? 5 years, and they do not even have 4% of the 360 market yet. No one has them, I am sure that will change in the future, but 4% working consoles out there means 96% that still crap out. And I think the 96% is a bit more important then the 4%. 5 years dude, that is not a win for MS. Stop listening to the MS hype machine about how the RRoD is no longer an issue, it still is. It sure as hell is an issue to me, who still has a release 360(never died).

You are correct technical failures is another name for reliability.

Next is quality of exclusive games, 3 you listed are not exclusive, one is not out yet. That just leaves gears2 and Alan Wake. Trust me, you really do not want to list off exclusives against PS3, we both know you will lose.

You are right, future promise is crap.

For the most part your comment was stupid enough to be called retarded, and as the person who posted it, that says a lot about you doesn't it.

Oh and before you blindly call me a PS3 fanboy and discount my entire post, there is something you should know; PS3: BigPenguin XBL: icybird penguin

If you bother to look you will see I have live gold, and not PSN+. You will also see that I have 47k achievement score on XBL. I have played the crap out of the 360, far more then the PS3. So I want you to understand that when I say this, I come from a position of slight education on the subject. Microsoft is ruining gaming.

Even though in general XBOX had better graphics the disc format was the same, so how much different can the game be? Nowadays the PlayStation 3 uses 50GB discs while XBOX 360 uses 8GB discs, a major difference. So that's what I think most people are talking about when they say focusing on one platform, mean with the better design choices.

kancerkid2596d ago

Couldn't the devs just make the textures 6 times better then, thus taking up six times more space, and the PS3 games would be just as long as if they were on 360.

The only reason storage is a matter of contention is because the compression allows a lot more information to be stored on BluRay. But then if you have less compression, you can store less info, and thus the games arent any bigger.

And the only game it seems the storage medium was a problem was FF13 and that was only because SE picked the worst encoder for the cinematics. Read the Digital Foundry article on the subject and learn yourself something,

PirosThe4th2596d ago

Believe it or not... Ps3 has never sold as much Consoles because its not hacked..
I know... I know... people are going to disagree, but its the truth.
I got one, and other many people do. However, in some countries its hard to buy "original" games due to incredibly high prices. They are loosing massive market right there.
In Argentina, most of the consoles come from America... specially Wiis, 360 and PS2. So all those 360 higher sales in America also are counted towards most of the poeple who buy then in third world South American countries. Believe it or not it's the truth.

All I know PS3 its the best. And It's ahead of its time when it came out... It only does everything... except piracy XD
I got one and I am glad though...

If it doesn't cover up the facts then how can it be fair? If they wanted a fair comparison they should include only the CPU, GPU etc

MariaHelFutura2597d ago (Edited 2597d ago )

Uh, I think we all know the answer to that.

Neon/Aston (above)

Open a PS3 and open a 360, it`s literally like the difference between poppin the hood of an old beater vs. popping the hood of an Aston.

jlemdon2597d ago

seriously, your only saying because of Blu-ray????LOL

now MS have an Opritunity to add more space with the new update.

you can have 2-8GB of extra with the memory stick.

PirosThe4th2596d ago

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
I can see that!
A game that comes in one or two DVD9 and a 16gig memory stick... That way it will be full version with no compromises... lol just lol

moparful992597d ago

Umm hate to break it to you but the ps3 has an infinite amount of space upgradeability.. I've been using a 4 gb usb flash drive on my ps3 for years now and I also bought a 160 gig external hard drive for 30 bucks so essentially I have 284 gigs of data storage and if I wanted to could add terrabytes for CHEAP.. Blu-ray is a technical feature that adds tremendous value to the ps3 reggardless of your OPINION... At the end of the day the ps3 has value far outreaching the 360 and microsoft is scrambling to match that value with the 360s and it still falls short..

jlemdon2596d ago

my point is.... that if MS wanted to make 1080P(native) games, they can with the new update. there is no excuse for what they can or can't.

jerethdagryphon2597d ago

because explaining the cell cpu to nontechnical people is quite diffucult especially with ms saying stuff when it was launched

"we have 3 cores at 3.2ghz" sony has 1 core and 7 something else." thats a quote from some ms interview

you cant just state numbers to compare any technical comparisons need to be
done in a consise and factual manor without overloading people

DelbertGrady2597d ago (Edited 2597d ago )

As if to cover up its bias.

Might as well call it "A fact comparison", as in FACT!

Interestingly enough, they chose not to mention mandatory installs or the inferior performance for many multiplat games on PS3.

Neither did they mention the lack of backwards compability in newer models.

Or that once the battery life in the SixAxis/DS3 is dead you have to buy a brand new controller, since it doesn't have a detachable battery pack.

I guess that's better left out. A power brick that doesn't effect your gaming in any way seemed more important.

Chug2597d ago

You're trying to tell us that the built in battery in the DS3 is a bad thing? I've always seen it as a convenience.

Johnny Rotten2597d ago (Edited 2597d ago )

here's a battery for the PS3 for $5.00 with shipping!

there are instructions in the manual to remove the old one but I'll explain it for ya since I'm here.

~ remove screws, unplug battery.

Biggest2596d ago

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! You still trying to pull the 2006 crap, Soda? I like how Google can expose so many silly lies with so little effort. I've had a 60G PS3 since day one. I have yet to change a battery in any of my controllers. But when I need to I can use my extensive electronic training that I received at Yale. You may have also learned this extremely high level of training if you ever changed the battery of a small electronic toy. Keep the faith, Soda! You'll knock the PS3 out one of these days!

MariaHelFutura2597d ago

The power brick is annoying, my systems are all elevated and it causes a problem.
