Ps3 vs 360: Is It Time To Buy A PlayStation 3?

It's officially official: the recently announced $400 40GB PlayStation 3 slips onto shelves in the United States on November 2, while the 80GB model drops $100 to $500, giving Sony a much needed one-two sales punch this coming holiday season. The 40GB model's arrival is crucial, because it's just $50 more than Microsoft's $350 Xbox 360 Premium.

Take a look at the image for the up-to-date comparison.

Conclusion:

"Point for point, Sony's PlayStation 3 pretty handily thumps Microsoft's Xbox 360. Oh sure, you have more entry-level options with the 360, but how many of you won't eventually pick up that $100 wireless card so you can play in front of any TV in the house without a cable? The hard drive (on the entry-level "Arcade" 360) so you can download demos and import music and store unlimited saved games and avoid jerky performance in certain hard-drive-preferred games? The HD-DVD player to view high-definition movies? The $50 a year Xbox Gold membership so you can play Xbox 360 games against other players online? Add all those up, and in all three Xbox 360 configurations, you get "practical use" configurations that rate notably more expensive than Sony's all-in-one PlayStation 3."

Shouldn't be much debate about this as the facts are plainly laid out for all to see. I will be the happy owner of my 2nd PS3 come this holiday season! And i know quite a few people going to get the 40GB.

Edit:

LOL. This is priceless! Look at all the fanboy excuses below. You don't hear the Lame "No Games High Pricepoint" argument.

Now its the "Wait till next year when MGS4 comes out"! LOL

Times are getting desperate now they are trying to encourage us to wait to get a PS3!

@leathersoup Da Rite Feacherz is the contributer of this story! But now that you mention it. The PS3 does have all the right features!

Leathersoup3684d ago

Are there still any features left in the console? Every time they cut the price, they rip something out of it. Now there's no backward compatibility whatsoever.

Bloodmask3684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )

this isn't a good story. You just like it bc it praises the PS3. It is a blog post which should be posted in the "Blogs" section.

According to the N4G guidelines Blog posts are only OK to be posted as articles if they are posted from Industry Professionals.

The only reason I approved this story is bc I knew people such as yourself would approve it anyways and I didn't want to be accused of being an "Xbot" and trying to censor the news. In all reality this story should be reported as spam. This story is no different than me typing an article on Xboxkings as to how the PS3 is a ripoff and posting it here. Which is an unofficial blog but I guarantee you would report even though it is no different than this story.

@ Dirtysouf below: "That some no-name-blogger"....Do you understand that part.?? That is exactly who the guy posting this story is. Who the hec is Matt Peckham??? Like I said this should be in the blogs section.

drtysouf213684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )

Your a hypocrite. You've posted many blog submissions here mostly all negative towards the PS3 and actually the rules say

http://n4g.com/Info/Posting...

Posting Negative News
Even though negative news about a console can make the fans angry, it is still news and should be posted as any other story. Again as with all news stories the important thing is that what you report is newsworthy. That some no-name-blogger writes a story about how much he dislikes console X, that is not news. On the other hand, if a high profiled developer shares his negative opinion about a console on his personal blog it would be considered news and should therefore be posted.

This is not a negative blog its a positive one. No matter what you say your still a 360 fanboy don't try and say your not. Your trying to censor good PS3 news because your desperate.

Edit: I'm not going to argue with you but this is not a no name blogger he's an author for PC World.

"Is It Time To Buy A PlayStation 3?"

Nope, nothing exclusive worth playing until Metal Gear Solid 4 or Final Fantasy XIII. Fanboys can hype up games like Lair and Heavenly Sword all the want, but at the end of the day, they are nothing but mediocrity.

nasim3684d ago

every war is now over

people were waiting for a price drop.

with RATCHAET and FOLKLORE out this month the 80gig is also slashed to 499$ and the 40 gig to 399$

ps3 is the most wanted product this XMAS

"Last week I asked "What do you want most this holiday season?" I expected the PS3 to take a drubbing. Out of 907 votes, the PS3 snatched 36% (323 votes), compared with 22% for the Wii (203 votes) and a marginal 8% (71 votes) for the Xbox 360. "

Leg-End3684d ago

are you retarded?
y wont xbots stop going on about lair - we KNOW it was a disapointement, sony KNOW it was a disapointement.
there are plenty of games worth playing, especially considering the ps3 only in its first year

if i had to buy a console for only a year - let's say it blows up on the 1st january 2008 (little in-joke there, xbots) - i would deffo go for the 360. Truth is, however, that i buy a console to last me AT LEAST 4-6 years with loads of games 2 look forward to.

Chris_GTR13684d ago

look, posting some poll on the ps3 forums about wich console they want the most is BS. everyones gonna put ps3.
folklore was a FLOP. it sold under 50k in both US and japan combined on launch.
the ps3 price drop will only go so far, people will look at the games for each console and see 2x as many games on 360 and choose it,then add to that the halo effect.

tehcellownu3684d ago

Resistance
Motor Storm
War Hawk
Lair
Ninja Gaiden Sigma
Heavenly Sword
Folklore
Ratchet And Clank
Uncharted Drakes Fortune
Time Crisis 4
Haze
Unreal Tournament 3
Gran Turismo Prolouge
Eye of Judgement
Sing Star

PSN game
Everyday SHooter
Calling all Cars
Super Star Dust HD

All these game will keep you occupied for the holiday until more bigger games come out earlier 2008..

tehcellownu3684d ago

whats up with the fanboys disagreeing?? lol.. ps3 is coming with revenge!

dangerstepp3684d ago

If I may ask. Also, your edits don't make a whole lot of sense to me.

dantesparda3684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )

Ok, i know that this is off topic, but my 3rd 360 has to go back soon cuz it keeps freezing up and having disc read errors. The coffin is already here (came yesterday), but i am not gonna send it back yet (fvck MS, they can wait, besides they said they dont care that i wasted their money my making them send me it, they said that i can just call them back for another one when i am ready). But i am thinking about sending it back in November, so i can buy a PS3 and have that to play with while my 360 is gone away for the FOURTH time!!! (I am so fvcking sick and tired of this sh!t). But now my question to you's is, does the 80GB still come with Motorstorm? also what is the percentage of PS2 games that it plays? i know that the 60gb version has like 97-98% compatibility. But what is the 80 gigs? (i think its like 70%+ right?). Also, does anybody know if the 80GB has any of the improvements done to the 40GB? like the better range wifi chip and run cooler. Also does the 40GB have the 65nm processor?

drtysouf213684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )

The edits mean i came back and edited and added to my original comment.

2 PS3's: I want a new one for my bedroom where i have an LCD TV. So i can watch blu-ray and upscaled Dvd's or play PS3 games or surf the net or listen to music and access files from my pc all from the comfort of my bedroom.

DeadlyFire3684d ago

While the PS3 may seem like it doesn't have many games it does indeed have a growing library of games. Feature wise PS3 has it all or will have it all when its all done on the firmware updates which will be going on a bit longer. Sometime in 2008 though the online service should be about done and more great games are set to launch. In 2008 Sony has alot going for it in 2007 it has a few good games, but honestly not many are 'AAA' budgeted games. There are a few that stand out though even with their AA or AAA budget like Hevanly Sword, Warhawk, Rachet, Haze, Unreal Tournament III. PS3 has more to offer in the long run than the X360 at roughly around the same price if not a bit more for the X360 depending on the SKU and what you get after you have the SKU. Microsoft just divides up the price you are paying into smaller portions. In 2008 Sony has support from all developers as well something they didn't have in 2006-2007. Some developers stated that they wouldn't work on the console until 2008. Sony has a ton of exclusive games all coming in 2008 as well. Like LittleBigPlanet, Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo 5, Motorstorm 2(maybe), Resistance 2(maybe), among others. Odds are that Sony will have another SKU and another price drop in 2008 as well if you are willing to wait so waiting isn't much of a bad thing. The 40 GB model is something Sony should of done since the start. Its a striped down model with the bare essentials. It still has almost everything the other SKUs have and its selling at a popular price point. Sony might even make a bigger SKU to set in the $600 range with the full range of features.

SCThor3684d ago

...and then go RROD.
(I already had a x360 until it gone rrod and I WONT buy another until it cost around 150 bucks)

stonedog3684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )

it may be a nice peice of Kit but all you are suggesting is that I should be an early adopter. There is no game that blows my mind. Seems to me that it makes more sense to wait until there are games that make me feel compelled to buy the system. Personally I have not seen anything yet. That is my personal view. Sony says the system is going to be around for 10 years so I will wait for them to build a library and I can not see the price go up again. There is no reason to run. But then I am still only thinking about the 360 maybe I am too slow to cant cold. MGS4 is intriguing but it is not out till next year.

AngryTypingGuy3684d ago

Speaking of lame arguments...When are Sony fangirls going to stop using the RROD argument? It's outdated. Microsoft addressed the problems awhile ago. Yes, very early 360's may still die eventually, but they will be replaced with reliable ones. If you go into a store, you will get one that works just fine.

Pretty soon, the PS3 will have an impressive lineup of games like the 360 does. After that happens, we'll all be arguing not over RROD's or lack of games, but what we should be debating...and that is who offers the better gaming experience.

In reality, it's all about what you prefer. For example, I like western games a lot better than eastern games. I love shooters. I prefer using a joystick as my main source of movement over the D-pad. So which one should I get? Easy, the 360. Not to mention, all my friends have it too. But if you prefer the opposite...get a PS3.

reaperxciv3684d ago

ps3 in 2009, that's the sweetspot year

n4gTurnsU_WickedGay3684d ago

thats not true. tell that to the ppl that have sent their 360 back 5 or 6 times. i bought an elite a few months ago and i got the RROD in less than a week. the RROD is not fixed.

Snukadaman3683d ago (Edited 3683d ago )

you sure you aint madden raiders....?? who the hell..no matter how much of a fanboy someone is buys 2 of the most expensive consoles...hell i can understand about a wii but a ps3...yeaa.

stonedog..nah you are right...after this price drop fiasco ,when its not even a year yet, doesnt boost confidence in a consumer, whats next...maybe another price drop...why buy one now where even ps3 owners aint even buying games themselves...by the time MG4 comes out there might be another price drop....by that time all these games no one is buying are super cheap.

dantesparda3680d ago

"Speaking of lame arguments...When are Sony fangirls going to stop using the RROD argument?" -------------When it stops happening! and even then, people will still remember it. The same way that the Xbox "fangirls" (as you so eloquently put it) cant seem to forget the PS2's DRE problem how many years later?

"It's outdated." ----------- No it's not! it's still happening!

"Microsoft addressed the problems awhile ago." --------No they havent! you assume that this ghetto @ss heatsink solution is actually fixing the problem, its not!

"Yes, very early 360's may still die eventually, but they will be replaced with reliable ones." --------------That's not true, the one i got back from them on July 20-something of this year aint reliable, its fvcking up, all the time, it keeps freezing up on me, and having DRE problems all the time. So your dead wrong about that!

"If you go into a store, you will get one that works just fine."-------That's not true, and you dont know that, you're just assuming. Thats just what you wanna believe. And you still hear stories of people having their recently bought 360s die.

If you want people to stop bringing it up. Then MS has to fix the problem. And extending the warranty is not really fixing the problem. Fixing the problem is making sure they dont do that anymore

Chris_GTR13684d ago

well they got the price down to a reasonable number, but what about the games?

lonestarmt3684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )

it has some. Fall of man is a great FPS, folklore if you like rpg with a J. Ninja gaiden sigma is the best ninja gaiden to date. Warhawk is the most fun you will have on multiplayer 32 player action. Heavenly sword is a work of art although short. Rachet is already looking like a AAA game. Uncharted looks to be better than anything else in its genre. Motorstorm is a fun off road game, not to mention most games you have already played on the 360, and some games are actually better, like graw 2 and elder scrolls. Just stay away from EA. They can't port ps3 games at all. There are more games to come, and if there is a game drought you have the cheapest blu-ray player there is. Its a win, win. Just don't trade in your 360 yet, with mass effect, ninja gaiden 2, lost odessey coming, there are still games, just now more than ever the ps3 is hard not to get..

Panthers3684d ago

there are a lot coming out in November. Plus everyone should play Resistance. Its really fun with an interesting story.

TheSadTruth3684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )

"Fall of man is a great FPS, folklore if you like rpg with a J. Ninja gaiden sigma is the best ninja gaiden to date. Warhawk is the most fun you will have on multiplayer 32 player action.

Resistance- Mediocre, GoW, Halo, Orange Box, Bioshock, CoD 4 are all far better games
Ninja Gaiden Sigma- Cool, let's replay a game we already played with prettier graphics
Warhawk - Good fun multiplayer game, but no real depth
Folklore - Mediocre
Heavenly Sword - Takes 4 hours to beat
Motorstorm - Looks pretty, fun to play, no depth
Ratchet - Not even out yet but is supposedly "AAA" because everything is "AAA" to PS3 fans on n4g, looks to be a platformer that isn't any better than the last Ratchet & Clank

so basically, no, there is no reason to buy a ps3 STILL, unless you need a Blu-Ray player, which is really the PS3's only asset at this point since HD-DVD will soon be dead

jlytle12343684d ago

Thats some lousy reasoning you got there. Resistance is actually a great game, try playing it sometime and i mean actually playing, not just say you played it. COD4 and orange box are coming to ps3 so thats no big deal and in case you didnt notice non360 fans dont give a sh!t about halo or Gears of war and find them overrated. oh and they take like 4 hours to complete too. And your entire arcade library is games weve played before and your high rated games were out on the ps2. and how does warhawk not have depth. Do you know what depth is? Did you not know that i can simplify any game ever made to the point that it has no depth. Halo is just a typical FPS with cars. Bioshock is a FPS without multiplayer. See now those games have no depth. And folklore is anything but mediocre. Its one of the most original action rpg games ive ever played and very entertaining. And motorstorm blows the pants off any arcade racer alive. It has ass-loads of depth and tons of download packs to add cars and tracks and modes to the game. I havent seen a game yet on the 360 in its two years of existence that makes me think AAA. All i see is sequels that dont do much more than their predecessors and PC ports.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI3684d ago

Well unlike some people I will say why I disagree with you.

Resistance while I do agree isn't as good as some of the other FPS'es I think is a great game especially since it was a launch title. Yes I'm aware GoW is first gen game too but it was late in year giving time to experiment.

Ratchet and clank actually is above 90% average atm, from the three or so reviews thus far.

NGS is basically the full ver. of ninja gaiden so it does have some value to it.

Warhawk does have some level of depth to it, but compare to most games. Halo has less depth if you ask me.

Folklore is also an amazing game too, the demo was amazing and the game looks fairly good.

Heavenly sword I will have to agree with you, it isn't that great if you ask me. And Motorstorm isn't my type of racing game so i can't jodge.

The Wood3684d ago

is that he has lost his gaming soul. That curiosity about games and gaming. The type that waits to see what people or publications say before he buys. Thats all good and well but those 'mediocre' excuses were lousy for real. When did you get your 360? Do you only play games you consider triple A or something. You may have fallen out of love with gaming, well i hope its that and not that your just a f'boy. Those excuses would stop most people from buying most things leaving us with virtually no video games industry or consoles that just sit there waiting to be played.

GIVE A CONSOLE A HOME

A CONSOLE IS FOR GAMING NOT JUST FOR TRIPLE A's

ASSKICKING4U3684d ago

No matter how much you guys want to say about your PS3 wich I dodnt understand, is Sony giving you guys a BJ or $100 bucks everytime you defend it? well I tought so, in any case you should consider how the Japanise are fully supporting their consoles by not buying the Xbox wich is an american company and that is the same we should be doing. Everybody here talks about PS3 vs Xbox but you all forgot who is kicking ass (and I really hate to say this) the nintendo Wii. wich is a low budget game cube port with no good grafix, no good games, and its selling like chicken nuggets on tuesdays, PS3 and Xbox is getting beat own by the worst contender. On the other side spending over $300 dlls on a game console its already considered to me an xpensive hobbie so if Im going to spend that much money on a console, it better entertain me and as of right now the best games are on the Xbox and also has many exclusives that will make my hard earned money worth.

sak5003684d ago

I played your goddam resistence when my nephew's friend bought it over his house. POS game. Fire is bumper button instead of trigger, the wireless controller is lighter than a cigarette lighter, in co-op u keep shouting where the heck is the other person cuz there is no marking. So if you're lost, just kill yourself and u'll spawn next to ur buddy. Gfx are so so and look cartoonish. You get shot and u dont even feel it jsut the screen keeps shaking or $hit like that. I kept switching weaponse instead of firing them. Nephew killed me 24 / 8 times in vs game. He has some sort of rocket launcher where he cud stop the fking rocket in mid air and hit me from around the hiding place. WHAT A Fkign joke this game is. You guys try cod2 or gears and then comment on ur oh so lovely game.

TheSadTruth3684d ago

"hats some lousy reasoning you got there. Resistance is actually a great game, try playing it sometime and i mean actually playing, not just say you played it.

I actually play the games I talk about, I am neutral in the console war and actually don't pledge my life to a fuc*ing video game brand. I didn't say resistance was bad, it is MEDIOCRE, it isn't nearly as good as dozens of other FPS on the market, and I've played it extensively on my roommates PS3, getting level 60 in under a week. Warhawk has no depth? How about because it has only 5 maps for a start? PS3 fans find everything overrated, because you don't care about a video game's caliber, just what console it is on. GoW had extremely linear gameplay, glitchy and unrewarding multiplayer, and horrible dialogue. I don't need to justify my points, as they are valid and reflective of my own experience, while you say things like Halo is just a FPS with cars, because you are blinded by your devotion to your $600 investment with a video game console. I actually feel sorry for the people who "disagree" with me and take away my bubbles, because they are just sad little kids that can't think logically and say things like "Halo sucks" and "xbox r n00bs!". The PS3 is NOT worth buying, STILL. I wouldn't pick up a wii either.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI3684d ago

SAk500 I just hate you seriously. THe weapon the person used was a rocket launcher you can control. Remember mgs1? it had a controllable rocket. I bet you hated that.

umm sad truth? How do you play all of these ps3 games if you don't own a ps3? I don't give me that my friend has it crap. Your friend can't have every game.

The Wii is an example of that.

The best time to buy a PS3 is when it has games you want to play.

For some people that means now.
For others it may have been six months ago.
And for others it may be next year or never.

edit:- The Wii has games that Wii people want to play. Most people on this site are not Wii people.
Loads of people wanted to play Wii sports and bought a Wii to do that.

Chris_GTR13684d ago

well the wii dosent have any good games. so dosent realy make sence. lol

lonestarmt3684d ago

haha get a bubble for making me laugh, but the wii has wii sports? lol, zelda twight, metroid 3, and soon mario galaxy. So there are games there just spread out more.

bym051d3684d ago

Wii also has Warioware and Super Paper Mario.

Sadly, my biggest attraction to the Wii is the Virtual Console.

Synex3684d ago

Targeting casual players will come back to get them in the end. Since these companies make most of their money with the attach rate, or to simply for some of you on here, how many games there are per system unit. Nintendo's problem is that Wiisports is the main game the "Wii People" bought the Wii for. Of course there are some more die hard Nintendo fans that bought it for another Mario game or Zelda, but other than that the Wii is nothing but a fad that will die out soon.

The biggest benefit of getting the PS3 is getting the blu-ray player. It really is awesome. I've gone blu and I don't buy any more DVD's now that I know the difference.

Huddymonster3684d ago

Anyone who says it isnt has not seen it or is a crack addict and cant afford it. Just watch Planet Earth on blu-ray and become amazed.

How much is Planet Earth on Blu-ray (The Whole Set). I'm thinking about buying them for my father.

People by itself decide when to buy a console, and such articles won`t make much effect. people have their head, and most of them know what they are buying and for what they are paying. =)

Anyway, PS3 was always a great value for money, no matter what, for next 5-10 years, you will have great HD console, great blu-ray player and FREE online gaming.
PS3 is a great investment into the future, that`s why at this point, price doesn`t matter much.

And this Christmas, PS3 finally will have a great line of games:
Resistance, Motorstorm, F1, T5:DR, NGS, Oblivion, Warhawk, Lair, VF5, HS, Ratchet, Folklore, Dirt, Burnout5, CoD4, Haze, UT3, Uncharted, Assassin`s Creed, GT5:prologue, EG5, GH3, Rock Band, Orange Box.
And since Christmas anyone who will tell, that PS3 has no games, will be a BLIND ignorant fanboy. =)
So, what weak point have PS3 now? NONE.

EDIT: people, if you disagree, just say why, because if you don`t like some FACTS and disagree because of that, that shows only that you are WEAK. =)

Snukadaman3683d ago (Edited 3683d ago )

even ps3 owners are not buying games man....why bother putting up a list when half of that list are considered sheit or not even out yet too judge them as being games too own a ps3 for...seriously. You think all those games are worth getting a ps3 for...it is because you allready own it. some of us allready own a xbox 360 and see that even ps3 multiplatform titles cant compare with them. why bother. If you only want too watch blu-ray movies then its a valid reason too buy a ps3...but until games that matter come out like MGS4 and even gears of war 3 then im in...hopefully by then the price is low and this dvd format buisness is settled. until then I patiently wait and play on my xbox/wii/psp/ds

I want too clarify..resistance is a game i want too play but right now its the only reason...not enough too buy into the ps3 for the moment though. most of those titles you got are also multiplats....more of a reason too not buy a ps3

CrazzyMan3683d ago

when with 7,5 mln. x360 sold in usa, first week sales of:
DiRT - 55,715
Blue Dragon - 59,791
Eternal Sonata - 43,199
Project Gotham 4 - 90,113
i would call omg sales.
x360 users don`t care about good games.

only action games and FPS are selling good on x360.
Halo 3 - 2,634,108

Bioshock - 397,213

Snukadaman3683d ago (Edited 3683d ago )

thanks for that...but try and stay on topic....you say there are games for the ps3...when people who own ps3's not buying those said games whats the use in getting a ps3?? I explained my point..why dont you defend yours?

heres some numbers
xbox 360
blue dragon 145,693
dirt 215,080

ps3 games
dirt 79,393
resistance 879,695 (you would think this would be at least a million since this is the best it has)
ninja gaiden sigma 168,168

CrazzyMan3683d ago

"heres some numbers
xbox 360
dirt 215,080

Simple Math:
PS3 sold in USA 2 mln., X360 sold in USA 7,5 mln.
7.5/2 = 3,75
215/80 =2,7
by logic, on ps3 with 7,5 mln. DIRT would sell 300,000.
not to mention, that DIRT on x360 was released earlier then on ps3.

Resistance is launch game. And that only show, that PS3 owners are less about FPS and more about OTHER genres.
NGS is remake, not a new game.

and if you call:
DiRT - 55,715
Blue Dragon - 59,791
Eternal Sonata - 43,199
Project Gotham 4 - 90,113

That these good games are selling, when there is userbase 7.5 mln., then you are just ignorant.
Even HS made around 100k in first week with only 2 mln. ps3 owners in USA.
