Why not take a look at another analysts view of the next-gen wars.
I disagree but whatever the 500 nor the 600 dollar ps3 isnt justified by the only thing that matters......the games.
i'm glad you wrote, "in my opinion"
No what happened was I was posting my links with facts to combat lies being spread from Jin and DJ. Then they started spamming my posts. It went from that to them censoring me every time I spoke. I never cursed. I never harassed anyone. And even when I wasn't posting facts, they were censoring my posts. Then anyone else who joined in on the conversation was being verbally harassed and bashed, with Jin and DJ accusing everyone of being ME. The Real Deal. I think at that point it pissed a few xbox fans off and everyone was spamming everyone. The funny part is. I just walked away and played my xbox 360. I came back and Jin and DJ was still here fighting a spam war with other xbox fans. lol...lol...lol...lol.... I love games but thats sickening. Spamming good people like myself is how it all started. I'm the Real Deal. Everyone knows I post links to support my opinions. Sony fans sit on here and lie all day long, then when you express your view with links they get mad and spam you off the board. Then if anyone speaks out, they spam them too. Its sad. But thats how much Hate DJ and Jin have. But with that said, I forgive you for censoring me and bashing me personally. I forgive you for accusing me of what you obviously do with multi screens. I'm the real deal. I only need one screen name and Facts as my guide on here. The truth always prevails when I'm around. I'm sorry if the truth burns a little. Sony did this to you. Sony made you so hateful. Us 360 gamers are a happy bunch. I'm sorry you have to wait a year just to experience what we have been experiencing for the last year. You should have jumped in. But honestly, You are getting exactly what you deserve. Bad things happen to bad people. And what yall did to me today was bad. Good Night.
Censoring what? Your MS facts? Your Ati facts? Your biased dev facts? Your fakeass screen facts? Your Music Producer facts? Or your NBA Star facts? lol...lol...lol...Why don't you post some facts from unbiased, objective sources? Why don't you post what unbiased devs that develope for both consoles are saying? Why don't you compare your 360 screens with good looking PS3 games? lool...lol...lol...you are the biggest fraud around here, that spams this site 24/7 with his lies and spreading some funnyass lies about beeing a Music Producer or that you could be an NBA Star...ROFLMFAO kid, you must have really some issues. It's so funny how serious you take your name and all this stuff, it appears you are living for this site. And kid, don't be so fast with assuming somebody is a bad person, you are much worse with what you are doing, but I wouldn't call you a bad person, you are just a sad person living in his lil delusioned lala land and not in the real world. Also fact is kid, that you were the only pathetic fanboy around when the deleting begann, but you are sayin that others did it...lol...lol...lol...kid, not everbody is as empty as you, some people have eyes and a brain ;-)
Still, if it's about the same as the writer of the story says, the 'cheap' PS3 is still 100 dollar/euro more expensive. Paying some pocketmoney to Sony in debt
I may be wrong here but is the xbox 360 premium bundle not $399.00 and the core xbox 360 299.00 while the ps3 core system is suppose to be $499.00 and the premium ps3 $599.00
I’m probably wrong though because I really have not kept up on the ps3. but I thought I read some where that there is going to be 2 different ps3 bundles. I might be wrong and if I’m I apologize....The point is any way’s I just don't understand how the ps3 is cheaper. I mean I’m not a math wizard or nothing but how is $499.00 cheaper then $399.00? especially if you don't care about watching movies on your GAME console?
you're correct (499.99 and 599.99) and good point with that last sentence.
I thought so.....Thank ya Baller
"Both have similar processors..........." The processors are in no way similar. These Dumbazz "Analysts" need to do a little bit of homework before spewing crap out their pie hole.
Cell: with 8 spe's, one that is not used, and one that is taken up soley by the operation system, allows the PS3 to run 6 threaded operations at once. Xbox 360: 3 cores, running dual threads, means it can run 6 threaded operations at once. PS3 might run its 6 threads a little quicker, but with its built-in memory on the Graphics Chip, Xbox 360 has a slight advantage in this area. Most games release for both systems will look, run, and play identically.
the cell is 3 times better than the xbox360 gpu. its another leage, to make a comparison is only dumb.
the 360 gpu is more powerful than the ps3's. the cell is being used as the cpu, and is the only core the system has. the 360 has 3.
hello every one i would just like to announce that i decided i would now be an official analyst. here is my prediction. sony = 40% market share, microsoft 35% marketshare, nintendo 25% marketshare. i think this is safe to safe that i am dead on since i seem to know 100 times more than this bung fukler analyst. p.s. i am a x360 owner, and i do not intend on getting a ps3 but i do plan on getting a wii if simply for zelda and the back compat all the way to nes.
also i would like to point out this would be a market share loss for sony... so i am in no way praising them i simply know that milions of fanboys will refuse to see that they are spending an extra $200 for exactly the same gaming experiance (notice i said gaming... not movie watching) also as a side note to that millions more will see outside of thier fanboyish ways and buy a 360 and wii and have 2 systems for the price of one and in doing so have 2 time that games to play.
I know that Sony is using the PS3 as the trojan horse for BluRay but I gotta say that I judge my console purchase on the consoles software line up and ability to play games only so I am inclined towards a 360 because Halo, GTA4, Gears of War and Forza are all games that interest me and live looks fun! BluRay I think is kinda a white elephant because even if it or HD-DVD do win the format war then what will it matter because distribution by DSL and mamoth hard Drives in consoles and devices are the future of entertainment, hell, who knows where gaming will be in 6 or so years, maybe we will have gaming on demand! Anyway, back to my point, choose games not consoles, think of bluRay like 3G on your phone, it sounds great and the companies that make it and make money from it really advertise hard about how it will change your life but eventually you need to ask if you are actually gonna use it for anything other than bragging rights, my guess is no.
though i respect your opinion, i beg to differ. i already have a 360 and enjoy the crap out of GRAW. i feel that Halo 3, Fable 2, GOW and Bioshock are all four gonna rock. but i wouldn't hold these four games to be the death nail of the PS3. while i feel it a mistake on Sony's part to use PS3 to push Blu-Ray, i feel that the system itself will be justified by its games. Lair, Heavenly Sword and Resistance are just the tip of the iceburg. MGS4, DMC4, Naughty Dogs "BIG" game, FFXIII, Gran Turismo 5 (no, not the HD version of GT4 Poly keeps showing), The Wall, Ratchet and Clank 5, Heavy Rain, Mercenaries 2, Assassins Creed and GTA 4 (the latter two i personally would prefer on my PS3, as i think they will have slight, SLIGHT graphical superiority). to me, these games are reason enough to spend $500+ on a PS3. but like i always say, to each his own.
I respect that you have decided to plump for a PS3 because it will offer you the games you desire, like I say personally the 360 appeals to me because it has my kinda games while PS3 has more games I aint a fan of like Final Fantasy(I dislike RPGs, sorry everyone but personal opinion!) Gran Turismo (I liked Forza but hope the sequal will improve drastically, my fave racing game is Moto GP on xbox, its so technical and intricate especially when braking hard, I find a certain pleasure when I am able to string together a perfect lap/race) and I was never a fan of the Metal Gear games after the PSone game. I am also usually drawn to larger pads because I have big hands (I like N64, Dreamcast and the original xbox controller, the controller S was pretty unusable coz I needed to deform my thumb to hit the black&white buttons, yet again its personal choice and preference). Thank god we could have a reasonable and well measured discussion without resorting to the childish insults of some others on this site, to each his own should be the only comment people post, does anyone really think that saying sony suck/ms suck/nintendo suck will help sell more of their chosen console? If you are willing to pay the cash for a PS3 then enjoy your new console and all the games you play on it because in the end the only reason we should buy a console is to gain enjoyment from playing it!
thats nice that you are talking of games that are not out yet, but the console is out one year now. the ps3 has a far better line up and you know it, stop twisting everything.
your an idiot! Learn to read before you launch into your childish tirade.
It doesn't count when your by yourself, sorry.
If you walked into Best Buy and saw a blu ray player for 600 dollars.....and all other blu ray players marked at 1000 dollars, would you assume it was a cheap blu ray player? now you add a cell cpu, and nvidia gpu....and what does that make the sony ps3? A. A cheap blu ray player? B. An expensive video game console? C. All of the above? Sony is in the business of making money. Something ain't right with the Ps3. We all know MS and Sony loose a little on each console. But how could they possibly sell a blu ray player, CPU, and GPU for 600 dollars when Blu ray players cost 1000 dollars? Something just ain't right. lol..... Think about it. Sony can't possibly be just giving away systems. Thats not good business sense. And if thats what they are doing, they have to be loosing over 500 dollars per console. And with all the bad press and low specs compared to the cheaper 360, they will never have the dominant fan base they once had. They will be lucky to get a 40% market share this time around. Just think about it. Something is odd in Sony's camp. I was raised that nothing in life is free. And what you pay for is what you get. Its directly relevant in just about every instance. if you guy to an outlet store and by a big screen tv for 400 dollars less than at best buy. What you may not know is it was pre owned and returned. So you actually are not paying for a brand new tv. Anything could be wrong with it. And on top of that, someone has used it. So part of its life cycle is used. Thus you pay a lesser amount due to that simple fact. Good deals are rarely good deals. You pay for what you get.
right on Real Deal!! Hey, you want a job?
Sony is hoping the PS3 sells like the PS2 did. They are putting all their cards on BluRay because of the royalties they will earn off of it. The PS3 is a Movie player first and Game Console second. Most of the games for it will be on DVD9 unless Sony requires them to be on BluRay. I think Sony made a bad move, but most people are stupid so they will think they are getting a great deal. It is too soon to change formats, DVD has just become mainstream and the price of HDTVs are still too high for most people. In 5 years things will be differant, then again in 5 years a new gen of consoles will be out.
Best Buy is a crap store, they are usually not the "best buy" and the staff is pretty much clueless about new tech.
in the electronics arena you pay a little more for higher quality products. Even if you don't care about blu-ray you're still getting a hell of a game system that also plays PS1 titles, PS2 titles, cds, dvds, supports 1080p, and just happens to be the most powerful game system. Apparently it doesn't give off any noise and very little heat, so that's a nice bonus. Best of all, there's no hidden costs. If you ever want to take advantage of your HDTV(if you own one) it already supports Blu-ray movies. No need to pay extra. If you ever choose to go online with your games the service is completely free. It's like Xbox Live but without the annual fee. It'd be nice of some of the people on here just stopped with the whole "Blu-ray is anti-consumer" angle. Everyone knows that Blu-ray was put in for its superior storage capacity over DVD and HD-DVD. The Blu-ray drive and standard Hard Drive were put in for developers' benefit, which in turns benefits us as gamers. Microsoft didn't want to take that risk while Sony did. It's these two different market strategies that's created the systems we see today, and there's nothing we can do to change it.
"in the electronics arena you pay a little more for higher quality products." ..............and............ then.......... "If you ever choose to go online with your games the service is completely free. It's like Xbox Live but without the annual fee" You just contradicted yourself. I'll judge Sony online when it is out, but if it is anything like the PS2 version........it will suck.
why u fools are even concerned with ps3 when u are not going to buy it. just play ur 360. it has been a whole year, havnt u found anything likeable on 360 that u could PLAY, but all day long u spend bit*ing about ps3! play ur 360 while MS supports it because in 2 more years they would release 720 and 1 year later u would be doing exactly what ur doing now bit*hing about ps4
I said that when it comes to consumer electronics (these are physical machines you buy) you tend to pay more for higher quality. Online multiplayer is not a physical product, it is a service, and there's a difference. Besides, the reason Sony isn't going to charge for online multiplayer, ranking, text/video chat, and all that other cool stuff is because Sony and developers intend to profit off of downloadable content instead. The Playstation online service is already up and running without a hitch(as revealed in the Full Auto 2 preview) and Sony has been doing online gaming far longer than Microsoft.
Will be making enough and shipping enough consoles to meet demand. It is a VERY high-tech machine, with its Blu-Ray drive, even more so than the 360. But brand-new tech tends to have bugs, glitches, and unforseen problems. Look what Microsoft had to deal with-- trouble getting chips, shipping problems, and overheating problems (most of which were the result of dumb consumers not giving the system and/or power pack enough room for ventilation, imho) The first round of HD-DVD players and BLu-ray players both had/have problems, will this be fixed on the cheap Blu-ray drives in the PS3? How will it handle cooling? Does it have an external power pack? The bottom line is more high-tech, cutting edge components means a harder time producing working, glitch-free systems. Then they have to ship them all over the world for a three-region, simultanious launch, something Microsoft proved is no easy feat. I would be surprised if Sony can assemble, test, and ship even half the systems they claim by the end of this year.
If you really think the PS3 will have "very little heat" you really do not know much about electronics.
