Why PS3 is Better than Xbox 360

The Sony PS3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360 are the two heavyweights in the video game console market and they both have a lot to offer. But if Buzzle had to pick one amongst the two, the PS3 would definitely get a thumbs up. (PS3)

*waits for obligatory "why 360 is better than PS3" article to follow in 3...2....1....*

I personally think the opinion article should be removed as a submission type.
Nitrowolf2  +   1717d ago
honestly, i think this is to try and counter that article about "5 reasons why you shouldn't buy a PS3" a day or two ago.
It always happens, always works to for the sites on getting hits.
See one opinion article that reaches high degree, then expect another one to be the exact opposite show up later.
Its been like this forever. Yes i think they should be to, most do nothing but flaimbait.
but then again they are opinions (the title) so expect someone else with a different opinion to get angry.

Like i said these type of article just fuel fanboys and cause flaming.

PS3 users remember to clear the dust from the vents of your PS3 at least twice a month. You should use a compressed air canister to do this and not a vacuum cleaner as the static electricity buildup could fry your PS3's motherboard.

Also let it cool down for an hour or so before shutting it down especially if you've been gaming on it for a couple of hours. If you shut it down before then the fans won't be able to properly cool down the CPU/GPU which could eventually lead to YLOD.

OMG... What an immature article... and this gets approved??? I wasted 1.07 minutes of my life reading this crap when I can read the exact same crap on the "Comments" sections of N4G???

Hey, I like my PS3, and I like my 360, but this is nothing but goofy silly fanboys crap, and is pathetic. Really people, get a life...
MaxXAttaxX  +   1717d ago
The article could at least mention something about
the larger variaty and quality of games and how exclusive games are actually REAL exclusive games.

* Now let's wait for that "Xbox 360 is better" article which will more than likely be misinformed and believe that multiplatform games are proof of its powah, LOL

This article was better
It wasn't so flamebait-ish.

@ cez of rage
(1) Maybe you should research Blu-ray sales.
DVD is cheaper for a reason and Blockbuster is going down because not many people rent movies in general anymore.
Nothing you can say will justify your DVD over Blu-ray. And all else about LCD tvs have nothing to with the PS3.

(2) Still happened even after the new chips. The new Slims are actually good when it comes to not RRODing.

(3) Uhh ok.

(4) Dude, the PS3 sells faster yearly, period. Like 6 million more within the same amount of time since its launch.
"Graphics and game play belong to the 360 exclusively"???
LOLWUT? GTFO please.

Oh and explain this:
"If your hard core, you have to have a 360 or why even bother"
You're seriously a noob, aren't you!

(5) No. Online gameplay is still entirely FREE. PS Plus is an optional service, but you don't "pay to play".

And what does PSN being free have to do with the Crysis 2 multiplayer beta?
So what happens if I mention Gears of War? Couldn't that be considered proof that XBL is a waste of money?
Yeah, exactly.

(6) Why would he want to talk about Kinect?
You people here defend it to the death only because its an Xbox 360-exclusive device, when in reality the majority of people that actually buy these are don't hang out here. They're the mainstream/casual audience. Just look at the games.

Xbox users, remember to not touch your launch console Xbox 360's. Playing them normally in any way can cause a Red Ring of Death. We have known about this fault before we even released the console, but we needed a sales boost.

The problem with all the propaganda, and fanboys lies is people can't separate facts, like this title, and opinion or lies, like the ridiculous "why you should'nt buy ..."

It's a problem when you are lying, when you are giving bad advices to customers, but when you are talking about real things, real advantages, etc it's information, and only dumb people/fanboys transform that into flamebait.

-Just as good selection of quality games
-I thinkt he Xbox has a much larger catalogue by long shot
-Debatable if Graphic sare better, Video footage is Blu ray quality but rendered graphic... on par and bettered in multiplat
-I have both, but think Live is miles ahead of anything, including online PC gaming.
-My Xbox and PS3 work fine, I feel safer witht he 3 year warranty MS offer over the 1 year Sony does.
-I use my PS3 for blu-rays and the few exclsuives if don't play on Xbox. This is not a win mate, its insulting to Sony actually.

Its not rocket science, its fact mate. Both are really on par with each other but the Blu ray video being the only advantage. Yet even know after being out so long PS3 sturggles to do better than Xbox is the multiplatform arena, surely superior hardware should perform better!?! I expect PS3 to, but fact is you cannot blame multiplatform developers for getting the most THEY CAN from each machine. As much as I hate this fanboy rubbish I hate it even more when fanboys like you spout of uneducated, ill founded rubbish to try make themselves feel better. Be a real gamer and enjoy the games. I still think my DS is more playable, ha!
MorningStar  +   1717d ago
Quality? Laughable the games are bigger because it does not support DirectX as Microsoft wanted more than Sony could afford. Which is the reason why games HAVE to be installed otherwise that terrible laser would burn out quicker than you could finish the games.

Quantity? There are more Xbox 360 games than PS3. Most games are created for the Xbox 360 then ported to PS3.

Better graphics? You are kidding right? Graphics still look better on an Xbox 360 than PS3. Better resolution as well. More games on Xbox 360 have 1080p support than PS3.

Free online? Yeah sure its FREE meaning you get what you PAID for. Xbox Live is a quality service with a quality MATCHMAKING system while Sony's PSN fails constantly. Oh whats that cross game chat? Yeah we have had that for a long time. Not just that but we also have party chat where more than 2 people can talk. Sony can't get 2 people talking yet.

Reliable hardware? You really need to look into the facts. PS3 has a higher drive fail rate due to them using poor quality materials. Also they have the YLOD which is nearly as bad as the RROD except that Microsoft repair your Xbox 360 for free unlike Sony who charge you for it.

Can't deny you on the Blu-Ray part it is a nice feature of the PS3. However it is nesseceary as like I stated before the PS3 cannot nativly play games it needs to install them to the HDD.

Lets talk about that Sony have sold PS3s with the smallest hard drive being 20gb when they know for a fact that games have to be installed to it. What does that tell you? That they are cutting corners as you would then later on have to go out and buy a new hard drive. People say Sony are great for allowing any 2.5 HDD to be used. There is a REASON for that.

Oh also another reason why PS3 has Blu-Ray is because it came out 2 years after Xbox 360. Microsoft had the choice to put HD-DVD drives into the Xbox 360 however they wanted to meet the Christmas demand and decided to go with DVD. If they waited 3 months they would have had HD-DVD inside the Xbox 360 native instead of an addon.


Lets point out some things that Xbox 360 has OVER PS3.

- Better controller - This is a fact. Sony tried to create a next gen controller but it was quickly canceled shortly before release because it was hated buy consumers.

- Better online connectivity - Xbox Live that is all that needs to be said.

> Better navigation - Have you tried being in a game and getting a few messages from somebody on PSN? You have to load up the XMB (which is slow) then go to friends - > messages - > inbox -> read message - > O to go back -> repeat from friends tab. On Xbox 360 press the guide button -> Friends -> message - > B to go back -> next message. Very simple and quick. The whole XMB as a in game dash is terrible. 90% of the features you cannot use and it is laggy for the 10% it does allow you to use.

> Free headset / cheap quality headsets - Yeah not every Xbox 360 gets a free headset but you can get them really cheap and they work. Bluetooth is a terrible headset for gaming. The Xbox 360 wired headsets are perfect for gaming. Play the same multiplayer game on both formats and see which game has more people talking in.

ok i believe so to that this article is just a crap.
but...until the last time i checked 9 to 10 of multiplatform versions were better on 360.
free online but with full of problems and after all u still pay for ps+. u will say that ps+ doesn,t matter, but personally i believe that is a cheap method to make money.
... the full pack of an 360 contains all the console cables (hdmi-component-rca-scart) headset and a quaranty of 3 years, and ps3 pack only an rca cable and 1 year guaranty.
and after all whats the hole hipe about ps3's exclusives? i mean infamous uncharted 1 and demon souls are very bad games, and lbp series just good...maybe very good but not so good as an exclusive must be. (there is aout there a mario galaxy and donkey kong u know).

malandra  +   1716d ago

it really seems like you don't know what you're talking about

-when you write that the PS3 came out 2 years after 360 and that's why it has blu ray that automatically makes anything else you write irrelevant, PS3 was released a year after the 360 and blu ray was developed by Sony, you're saying that if MS had had a year more they would have developed a blu ray-like media and included it on the 360? fanboy please

-better graphics, quality and quantity of games refers to full retail exclusives, graphical difference on multiplats are very minor and hard to notice unless you have a 56 inch TV (except on a couple of cases like Bayonetta, the rest are pretty much identical)

-it is well documented that the PS3 failure rate is around 15% and 360 has reached 50% on some models

-the actual online play is identical on both consoles, on LIVE you're paying for online but you only get extra features that you don't get on the PS3, this is like saying a DVD with movie and extras for 30 dollars is a better deal than a free one with just the movie, most people just care about the movie

-the controller is a matter of opinion but I find the 360 too heavy and cumbersone, also the bumpers buttons are unreliable

You would think that people would have gotten sick and tired of making titles like this by now.

***The Xbox 360 is also known to create an annoyingly loud noise when it is used for long hours, and this along with its overheating problem makes it quite unstable. The PS3 has no such issues that are anything but ordinary.***

Don't know about PS3 Slims, but I do know that older models do have a increased chance of YLOD due to heat. Had one of my 80GBs bit the dust and I didn't overuse it. It's not as bad as early day RROD, but it's much higher than the 2% desired failure rate that hardware manufacturers look for.

***The graphics of the PS3 are far better than the Xbox 360***

Highly subjective and I think it has a ton more to do with the developers behind the wheel. I firmly believe that if developers like Naughty Dog were developing for just the 360 we would be seeing some of the most remarkable games out there on said platform.

What I would say is that there's no way you could claim that the PS3 is not just as good at graphics as the 360, though it does take more work to usually get it to a level where it shines compared to the 360.

Also that you don't need any special cords to charge controllers USB everything saves time and money and with the internet you can download movies and music directly to the hard drive(not saying from where though:] ). Playstation + is also beyond worth the $50 i've gotten over 30 great minis and psn games for free and 4 betas so far plus cloud and automatic downloading whereas with xbox for $60 you mainly just get online you can also connect your psp to the ps3 and stream movies and music from any where. I wish people took the time to learn about these features and to play the exclusives like infamous and demon souls before writing the ps3 off.

Seriously. 2 exclusives this year that we know of and we are fast approaching E3 with no news of new titles. In this day and age if there were some on the way there would be leaks as to what they might be. Nobody can keep a secret anymore and more often than not the source is leaked right from the horses mouth.

I can't remember the last time I was surprised by any annoucements from E3 and I don't think this year will be the exception for MS. The tables have definitely turned. Now all MS talks about is Kinect and sales (NA sales).

Xbox 360 is the home for the best exclusive franchises according to universal reviews; Halo Reach best FPS & Forza 3 best vehicle sim/racer & Gears of War franchise best TPS. Only game ps3 beats the 360 in exclusives is best game with dolls in LBP.

And most important, multiplatfrom games that make about 95% of a console's gaming library is still better on the 360. Big AAA titles like Red Dead, Black OPS, Crysis 2 are good examples of this.

last i checkd.. ther are way more hackers and cheaters on the xbox. just sayn...

lol where did you "check"?

I'm not sure if you realize Sony is in big trouble due to the jailbreak stuff that is going down. People that mod their xbox's are usually banned, so they don not affect the experience of others. I do not see the same with the PSN.

That proves you don't know what you're talking about.

@strawberry9.....Actually, since you're obviously refering to "alleged PSN hacks" in games online...
I submit to you, that other than CALL OF DUTY games, you have NEVER seen any cheat hacks with your own eyes.....Not a single 1, strawberry9. <---Click here please.

If you clicked the youtube link, strawberry9, you'll notice the date of that COD hacked game was in early-mid 2009...close to the time I bought my PS3, and well before GEOHOT.

So basically, do you know why you've never seen any games other than Call Of Duty that are cheat-hacked online? Because they don't exist, strawberry9.

i was playing xbox @ friends house... black ops and MW2...and i have never seen soo many damn hacks in my life... no where even close to ps3 glitches and hacks.... seriously.. a rainbow gun shooting huge ass that even possible?

You don't mention reliability(PS3 wins), exclusives(PS3 destroys), you forget to mention blu ray. Blu Ray discs are more durable, more spacious, offer better video and audio quality too. The PS3 hard drives are WAY cheaper. You can get a 500GB hard drive for the ps3 at less than $100. However for the 360, a 250Gb hard drive is a lot more than that. Stop living in your own world and get out more.

Hmmm. This is is gonna go on forever. But I have to sate the obvious. The things he mentioned have been mentioned over a million times already. we get it Sony believes this is what makes up what PS3 and Microsoft believes this what makes up an Xbox. Its what you want out of a console. But Microsoft is doing something right? Why can't Sony Outsell the Xbox? I'm not trying to sound like a fanboy or anything. But If the PS3 is so much better how come its not outselling xbox? I'm talking to the Aurthur specifically.

sites post garbage like this on N4G, cause they know you people are gullible, plus they will get easy hits lol..

my question is, are you not bored of this? Its been going on for years now

This is so obviously flamebait, the same user has an article going through pending which is called "Why Xbox is better than PS3"
JusenkyoGuide  +   1717d ago
lol i love flamebait articles
i prefer my ps3 over my 360, but this is just asking for trouble. oh well it happened with the 360 so it's gonna happen with the ps3. I'll just sit back and laugh.

I know I'm bored of it.

Explains why it's still in third place. If people thought it was better they wouldn't be buying more of the 360.
MysticStrummer  +   1717d ago
Except they aren't buying more of the 360, ever since the PS3 launched, with the exception of a month or two here and there. Math can be a fun and useful skill.
JusenkyoGuide  +   1717d ago
also guys
look who brought the article to n4g - bloodmask again -_-
Sizzon  +   1717d ago
Come on N4G!!! Get some real news, oh my god, jesus -_-

Both consoles have clear superiorities over one another. To say one console is better than the other is clear stupidity.
initial_kay  +   1717d ago
to say they are even is clear stupidity.
strawberry9  +   1716d ago
Clearly PS3 has better exclusives, but xbox live has is much better than psn. this is the reason I only purchase exclusives on the ps3, because the online is horrible. Don't be a fanboy
x5exotic  +   1717d ago
in what aspect?games? ps3 has more,better(story,GP)
all genres,,better
strawberry9  +   1716d ago
PSN sucks. xbox also has some good exclusives. Don't be a douche
strawberry9  +   1716d ago
I have both consoles and I'll never say one is better than the other.. there are too many factors that go into saying that. to say that one is better than the other shows nothing but the fact that you're a fanboy.
initial_kay  +   1716d ago
this entire time that ive been reading your post... all i see is you riding ms seriously take your own advice and xboxlive is better then psn?..its the same sh!t.... you can play online ... ive nvr had any issue with psn... if anything they both are the same to me. except xbox is just money hungry.
x5exotic  +   1714d ago
who cares about Online,,,,the game itself comes first,and evenso,there is no big difference,
all xbox exclusives are shooters they have no creativity,
Halo sucks ,GeOW sucks(which btw might come to Ps3 unfortunately)
the only good one was ME2 and its now a Multiplat
alan wake was good but meh not all that >.<
