Yet another 360/PS3 comparison, but this time its not a comparison of specs. but rather the size. Click the link to see just how big the PS3 really is compared to the Xbox 360....
Damn the ps3 is big ass hell and ugly ass hell and it ways 11 lbs. damn
who designed that then!?!?!!? I thought it was supposed to be a playstation, not a spacestation!!!! FU*KIN HELL!!!!
With its advance technology it should called something out of this world, like....SPACE STATION
my opinion: although the ps3 is the same size as the original xbox, i think it looks alot nicer. I like the curved stylings of the ps3. It took a bit more design thought in it, then just designing a big, black box with an 'X' on top of it. And then giving it an almost circular controller. The original xbox was a freakin geometric nightmare
but the ps3 looks BIG AND UGLY TOO LOL... it will be interesting how the japs take it hmmmm cos they said some thing like oh we didnt buy the xbox cos its huge lol look at the ps3 fuk its big and ugly ,,, the japs r racist ne way , they dont by west end off
It's friggin uglier than anything I could of cooked up in a bad dream. Even with it's "so" called good inner workings, it's a piece of crap, I cant wait for it to come out and people will then see how bad and slow it's bottlenecking makes it. This is gonna be so classic!!!!
Lol, that image used for this article has got to be one of the funniest, next to the PS3 being used a Forman-like grill. hahaha i almost laughed out loud at work. who comes up with these ideas anyway? ok back to the subject. yes that PS3 is huge! if bigger casing means better air circulation and less overheating, then it's no big deal to me. i read somewhere that because of it's huge size, weight, and curves, it can actually with stand a category 3 hurricane. its curved styling allows wind to flow through smoothly.
it'll be the biggest thing to hit new orleans since mardi gras
"PS3 being used a Forman-like grill" LOL that says it all because it does look like my Forman Grill just needs to be silver and be stamped by George. But on an honest note you are going to need your own shelf for it because nothing can stack on top of it and it looks odd stacked on anything else.
But i dont care if its bigger than the 360. It has more stuff in it. It looks slick though. Remember, its a console, not a protable machine. So it all good.
what PS fans said last-gen.Truth
yeah but like i said before, the ps3 is big, but looks stylish the xbox was big, and it was a black box. About the least stylish thing in the world. And then the original xbox controller. Cough, a big circle, with an 'X' icon that took up a 1/3 of the controller At least sony's always made good looking products, even if it is big. And yes, it does more things then the 360
THE PS3 MIGHT BE BIG, BUT THAT DOESN'T MAKE IT HORRIBLE LOOKING LIKE THE FIRST XBOX.
the 360 looks alot better all 360 degrees than the ps3.
i read somewhere that because of it's huge size, weight, and curves, it can actually with stand a category 3 hurricane. its curved styling allows wind to flow through smoothly. ha ha u should be a comedian rofl...anyway the ps3 does look big, but what pisses me off is dat i cant put a drink on it, like i did with my ps2...dam
Although I am getting both a 360 andd PS3. I have to say that the 360 is not any better looking than the PS3. Although the 360 is better than that ugly orginal xbox junk box, and arguably better looking than the PS2, it still is not a sight for sore eyes. Who cares if the PS3 is bigger anyway. I think it's pathetic that the 360 fanboys have to find lame stories like this to try to convince people that the 360 is better. My hell, even though the 360 and PS3 are both great systems, the 360 camp suffers from having the most retarded groupies (fanboys).
and the home section so there!
and im not a 360 fanboy. Im a playstation fanboy. lol. I have little to any respect for microsoft and i think they make crap products. Im a playstation gamer through and through I just posted this article because i post whatever article, im not biased when it comes to news. And it was a good chance to use that picture of that butt-ugly xbox on a rocket-pad mover vehicle
Does it really hurt that much inside when people call the PS3 big?
I now the ps3 will have some good exclusives games so the size "Don,t Matter" to me, its the same thing xbox 1 was bigger than ps2 and i had them both so in the next gen ill still get both wether 1 is bigger than 1. I got to admit that the PS3 got more style than the 360. IM OUT.
Thats what small fat people say when u talk about d!cks...... and size does matter.
i can see ur point regarding the visual asthetics of the xbox1, that baby sure IS a beast of a machine, and for MS's 1st effort, I gotta give em a thumbs up bro, the GAMES LOADED 1st TIME!!! that's all i'm gonna say hehe
yeah, with my original xbox, cos it had a flat top, i used to rest my tv on top of my xbox. But i can't really do that with the ps3's curved top lol
hows ur mylo bruv?? I heard u can store all ur pokemon game pics on there!!!!
why are you talking to me? and actually, i think the mylo wont be successful and there's alot of reasons for that. How's your zune? A little late to the party wasn't it?
A little late to the party ain't it? Apply the general idea of your answer to this post to your Zune question.
i dont think the ps3 was late at all. The extra time allowed the ps3 to have the bluray included, games to be improved and more launch games to be released. And i dont think anyones complaining about the delay now,since we got like 3 months left. Besides,if the ps3 is late,then so is the wii. Sony and Nintendo must have thought this was the best time to release the consoles personally i think the 360 was launched too soon. You can bet the 360 wud hav used HD DVD as standerd had it been released this nov.
The story is about the size of the top dogs, Sorry but you're an god dam idiot. I'll take it back if you're younger than 17.
Are you a girl or a boy? If you are a girl, you look very boyish, if you are a boy, you look very feminine.
...but she does have a point. I hope that's your girlfriend.
I don't care what anyone says, I think the Xbox 360 is rather sexy, if I may be so bold. I think the whole look of it is great and is the best looking console to date. The PlayStation 3, I dunno, it's horrific looking. The stacked underside is god awful. The outward curve make it look fat and pregnant. Ah well, everyone has their own opinions. I'm not gonna insult anyone on a personal level based on what they like or don't like.
It's a big sucker, but it has a much curvier/bolder design than the 360. Everything about the 360 (console, controllers, logo) has a very 'safe', unimposing feel, as if they wanted to appeal to both their original audience and newer ones such as children and families concerned with ESRB ratings. Even the console has very soft edges and a soft, white material reminiscent of certain Apple products. Sony seems to have taken a hard-edged sci-fi look with their console. Sharp lines, broad curves, and a reflective black surface that looks like it was taken straight off a sports car. Standing upright, i can't help but say this but...it looks like a frickin' office building (with the vents as windows). The great thing about the PS3 though is its lack of a power brick. 360 fans can defend it all they want but you gotta admit that is one fat, ugly motherfu(ker. I'm a college student right now, and trust me, i haven't seen a single person in the dorms who can effectively hide it.
for a surprize if you think the PS3 wont have a power brick because the wii has one so LOL to what u said.
you fukd in the head dj. do you look at the power cord or brick when playing a game lol , you sad fuk
"The great thing about the PS3 though is its lack of a power brick. 360 fans can defend it all they want but you gotta admit that is one fat, ugly motherfu(ker. I'm a college student right now, and trust me, i haven't seen a single person in the dorms who can effectively hide it." I have the power brick on the same shelf as the Xbox 360, maybe eight inches away, and it's hardly visible. Although if someone just sits there and looks at a power brick, they have problems.
Does anyone know if the ps3 hase a power brick? If you dont than stop bagging on the 360 b/c of it. And also my "brick" is completly hidden and easy to hide. And also the 360 could have the brick inside and still be smaller than the ps3.
I read that the PS3 will, have an external power supply. Maybe it was just a rumor. Considering the power adaptor necessary to run this toaster oven of a console, I wouldn't be surprised that an adaptor wouldn't fit into even the fat PS3 profile. I actually think the PS3 looks more like a black bread box. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", but I'm betting the general public will look at the PS3 as the Frankenstein of gaming consoles.
Why it was all curved out...it makes it look wobbly to me, but I'm more concerned about heat dissipation. With curves you're reducing the space on the inside, making it more susceptible to overheating. And I'm not seeing a lot of venting. Are they using a power brick as well?
there are a LOT of vents (they didn't put in the vents for the wooden mockup in these photos). The reason Sony also put vents on the top of console is pretty obvious; heat rises, so the fans don't have to do as much work.
u have bad taste lol ps3 nice this and that clean ur eyes lol..... its a george formans grill rip of lol...
It's obvious that everyone has their own opinion as to whether which one looks better - style and beauty are very subjective. I think the 360 looks okay, not great, but okay. I think the PS3 looks better, not great, but better. Regardless, I don't really care because I care more about the games they play. So everyone will have their own opinion as to which one looks better, but in the end it doesn't matter because PS3 won't have Gears of War, and the 360 won't have MGS4.
I'll take functionality over looks any day. If you don't like how it looks, get a decal or something. (I like my skull covered 360) In addition to being a video game platform, it's also a place for me to put my controllers when I'm not using them so I don't lose them. (I wish wireless controllers and TV remotes, etc. had a beep function activated by a button on the home unit like my cordless home phone does.) I'll admit I also use it to place drinks on. Last generation, I stacked my PS2 on top of my XBOX to save space. I hated that the larger console went on top because it was curved and you couldn't put anything expensive on it cuz it would fall off. Too bad it's gonna be the same situation all over again.
I knew it was big but not that big...... I mean It does look sleek I guess, same type of look the PSP has. Just like the DS looks like a Wii. It is a big machine tho...funny how the xbox got flamed for its size...now sonyfanboys are very quiet about this one.
I wonder why that is. Oh yeah, cuz they said it and it didn't come true. Could this be the first of many misconceptions that will be proven wrong? You PS3 fanboys better hope it's the last.
Nuff said, Just look at that grill LOL! Fony is not in competition with M$, They are after george foremans grill marketshare ROTGLMFAO!!!!
You sissy loving sony...you sound awful talking about Fanboys(take a look in the mirror).What, Ken Kutaragi got you bending over too. From the looks POV I can see the PS3 blending with home entertainment systems if everything is black. The slot loading is a nice idea. but still big..
The XBox was an ugly system. I could care less about the size, I'm not jogging with it. I like the look of the XBox 360 and the PS3.
Damn!! thats sleek and sexy. The oboxx60 is dull and looks very CHEAP....Look at it and tell me the truth. Which looks better, even with size. I think the xboxx60 is messing up the PS3 image. get that lighter look alike away, its gonna cause fire.
Damn, so there comes a big powerbrick with it even... I like the white 360 a lot better. The PS3 for real looks like a gardengrill making some meat this summer in my backyarden. Man that thing is huge!
I think it looks like it ate a PS2...kinda reminiscent of how a snake eats its prey lol.
DOES THAT MAKE A PS3 LOOK UGLY BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE A GARDENGRILL MAKING SOME MEAT.
if you could get a white ps3 or a black 360
looks like it was designed in the 80's. plus ups with have to give ps3 owners a huge box when they have to ship it back after the annual dvd player over-heat like with the ps2
I'm curious about how the the Japanese will fit it in their tiny paperwalled apartments that the 360 is too big to fit in?
ps3 is bigger than 360. yeah for sure. Ps3 is the king and 360 is a little kid, who's trying to be the king of the world, but nobody like it, some people like 360, but just in u.s.a. that's the truth, i ain't lying. "But i lke it".
The bigger the better right? hahahaha cant wait to play it on october 14th at an EXBO im goin too so i can see which one is better the xbox360 kicks some major azz though its gunna be a good match up I think very equal :)
I consider myself slightly 360 fanboyish, but I still have my dignity. The PS3 looks alright, neither looks better IMO. I still wont be buying one. I preached for years that it doesn't matter what your console looks like since you wont be looking at the console, but nobody listened, all of a sudden the PS3 is bigger and suddenly everybody sees the light. Honest question. Does it have stands? It looks like it can rock back and forth when it's laying flat, which would probably be bad if a disk is spinning in it at the time.
a lot while they were running games, and I've never had my discs scratched, ever. So there's no reason to think that the PS3 will change all that. Sony spends a lot of money eliminating potential problems such as disc damage due to movement(if cars can do it, game consoles can do it). If it wasn't for the random 360s chewing up perfectly good discs (even while completely stationary, allegedly) you probably wouldn't be asking this question. http://www.youtube.com/watc... This is a video showing what happens when you violate the 360 user manual, which actually forbids moving the console in any manner while a game is running. In fact, MS has gone as far to claim that slight vibrations in the floor can cause disc damage on the 360...o_o' If PS1, PS2, Gamecube, and Xbox can be tilted while running games, one can be inclined to wonder "Why the hell can't the 360 do it?" Sadly, there's not much of an explanation. A lot of the posters on this site claim its the consumer's fault that these things occur, but they fail to realize that Microsoft built the console, and that any problems that occur are actually the result of their manufacturing and design decisions. Can you imagine if cars weren't built with seatbelts and airbags and that the manufacturers gave up all responsibility and outright blamed consumers for dying in cars that the manufacturer designed? BTW, i have to ask this question. If your 360 chews up your discs on a regular basis, is that covered by the 90-day warranty? (totally serious question)
DJ when i play a game on my 360 i dont move the console why whould you do that ne way?.... why do you come up with lame $hit all the time ? i have had my 360 since december 06 ( i have playd 47 games so fare amazing stuff) and NO problems here at all,,, NO OVER HEATING AND NO SCRATCHED DISCS . strange that but the site that had articles on like the one you posted have sony fan boys stanmped all over it ... so yeah what ever ,, oh and i'll ask you this again do you play your console look at the power suply ?,, you one strange bloke
hopefully your car doesn't go from horizontal to vertical when you're driving. notice the difference? car moving straight or turning, not flipping over. what purpose is there for you to move the console while you are playing anyway? anybody who has scratched a disc changing the position of their system is a DUMBASS period. use some common sense, and take care of your $300-$400 investment properly. when you spend your $500- $600 on the ps3, are you going to wave it all around while games are running inside of it? store it outside under the deck while not in use? EXACTLY.
Either by choice or accident, it will happen (knocked over, need to move something, etc). And why would you wave your console around and try spinning it??? You guys come up with the wierdest counter-arguments. The 360 is meant to function upright and laying down, so shouldn't it be able to handle angles within that 90 degree turn? Come on, if PS2s can be moved without any problems, why is the 360 suddenly an exception? Unless of course you're blindly defending Microsoft to the grave.
it is meant to function standing or laying. not to be changed to those positions while in use. again, why do you need to change it DURING the course of a game? if it was standing when you started playing, what non idiotic reason do you need to all of a sudden switch it? if you're using a wireless controller, you won't pull it. if you're using a corded controller, then have enough sense to calculate the distance you can sit from the console without yanking it all over the place. quit trying to justify your prefernce for sony by making stupid ass arguments about the system you don't prefer.
Its funny how people claim us 360 fanboys are bashin when I remeber clearly all you ps fanboys ripping the xbox for being bigger, well now the ps3 is alot bigger and uglier then before, its not the top portion and shape that is ugly its the bottom portion like the ps2 thats just gross looking, you can deny it all you want but its oddly shaped. The japs will buy it and not make a peep about its size even though the first xbox was to big for them, the point about the original xbox controller being gross is correct but the 360 controller is the best thing since sliced bread, lets not forget the boomerang you guys almost got and oddly enough they went with the old design instead since originality is not sony forte, the ps3 is a ps2 on steriods, can you deny that the ps3 is a bigger shaplier ps2, I cant so I wont. You guys also keep saying you get more in the ps3 then the 360 but you also have a 200 price difference unless money doesnt mean anything to you guys you should point that out as well. The 360 itself looks small and sleek, one flat design not a 3 stage monstrosety like the ps3. Hey I can bash what I dont like and I will still buy it cause im a gamer but lets be frank, the 360 is nicer looking all around with a better controler. You guys got motion, we got rumble and motion can always be added but i doubt the ps3 will have rumble ever again, you might not like rumble but we do, im sure you liked it when you had it. you guys got blue ray we got hd dvd, lets wait and see which wins. Now to the graphics, thats what its about isnt it, im sure both will have good games with good gameplay but this fighting amongst ourselves wont die out until we know which is producing better looking games and to that I say, I doubt ps3 launch games will look beeter then 360 2nd gen games and I doubt the ps3 2nd gen games will look better then 360 3rd gen games, after that the war might be over. Also all you guys are so quick to point out that the 360 had some problems, ok so what, didnt the ps2 have them, didnt the xbox have them and you can bet the house that the ps3 will have some issues as well with its first shipment. Also be humble becuase if it wasnt for microsoft THE PS3 WOULD HAVE NONE OF THE FEATURES IT DOES NOW, SONY KNEW THEY BLEW IT WITH NO HD AND ONLINE IN PS2 AND THEY KNEW THE 360 WOULD HAVE ALL THESE THINGS SO THEY KNEW THEY HAD TO ADD EVERYTHING AND THE KITCHEN SINK INTO THE PS3, BUT ALL THE STUFF DOESNT ADD UP TO SQUAT UNLESS ITS DONE RIGHT. tHE 360 WENT WORLWIDE RELEASE SO NOW THE PS3 WILL ALSO,THE 360 HAS A GUIDE BUTTON, NOW THE PS3 DOES AS WELL, THE 360 HAS A FULL BLOWN ONLINE SYSTEM, NOW THE PS3 DOES TO, THE 360 SOLD IN 2 SKU'S, NOW THE PS3 IS AS WELL. THANK MICROSOFT FOR THE COMPETITION. Now go play some games and shutup.
the bottom of the PS3 is pretty ugly, though the top of it is gorgeous. I'll either leave it lying down or place it on the left side of my TV.
From what I have read the PS3 will have a external power brick. I don't care who you are the PS3 will be HUGE. I wonder what the Japanese will say about that. I don't care if its the size of a car I will still get it when the price drops. I live in Texas and everting is big here.
Personally, I think the PS3 is the better system. Who can say no to an appliance that cooks burgers, AND can play games! LOL>>> Still can't find the drip tray on it. Burgers must "baste in thier own juices" HaHaHa LMMFAO :p
I Bet you guys there are going to be surprises under the curved hood....Maybe its actually carrying an xbox 360 inside!!! hehehe hahaha....or maybe there actually might be a grill inside ...so sony thought our console over over heats so why not put a grill on it and then later boast about it!!!....Ahaha no offence to ne one lol.... I think the power brick will be about the same size as the xbox 360's...
