Your 2009 Holiday Budget: Xbox 360 vs. Playstation 3

Which is the better console for you and for the holidays is a question only you can answer. From exclusive software offerings to robust online features and frequent updates both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 offer a multitude of entertainment.

Our list of features and costs for each console are in no way set to give either console an advantage over the next. We are only showing the obvious as some breakdowns may show an edge depending on the consumers need. To keep our platform breakdown simple we have decided to list all the available console types for the Xbox 360 and PS3, their 2009 exclusive software line-up and of course their list of online features.

Let me break it down for you....

It Only Does Everything.Nuff said :)

A buddy I work with was going to pick up an xbox but instead went for the PS3 due to the inclusion of wireless and the free online.

He has three kids so including himself that would be an extra $340CAD to shell out.

Many years ago Lord Kemp travelled down the waters of the Nile to find the ancient relic of infinite wisdom.

After a bleak long trek through the desert one of my servants a young portly kid by the name Greenturd spotted a pyramid in the distance.

Upon closer inspection we found the entrance to an ancient tomb.

Being mindful of traps, Howard Carter showed us the way.

By the curse of the Tutankhamuns i found it. An ancient stone tablet.

This tablet would carry the inscriptions of infinite wisdom.

Back in Cairo we had it translated, it carried the words ----- 'A wise man does not buy faulty and defective consoles or pay to play online when it is free on the competitions console.'

(I never found out what happened to the fat kid Greenturd. Last i heard he was doing a drag act in Cairo.)

A little biased dont you agree?

That multiplat list of "flops" isnt even a tenth of the size of PS3 multiplat flops or even exclusive flops.

I love hypocrisy.

Tesselation 3603244d ago (Edited 3244d ago )

dude your life must be really really boring and goes to show what ps3 gamers spend their time on lol

Last comment was perfect tough. No one cares about ps3 cause the list is 10 fold the size of that one but you wont see me compile a list for u all. I have better things to do like finishing forza 3 and AC 2. I am also waiting to see some new halo reach stuff. We gonna be awed with graphics we never seen before.

Jump in.

awesomeperson3244d ago

Yup your gonna be awed with graphics you've never seen before. I could agree with you, if I wasn't around when things like Crysis came out.

How do you know how good the graphics are? You've seen a few dodgy shots? Yup your cool... My bet is it will look slightly better than Gears 2 but quite a bit worse than Killzone 2. The 360 simply CANNOT handle sheer graphics power, unless Halo Reach comes with an optional 500 dollar addon graphics card, which is only first party compatible and would usually cost 50 bucks. Would also break down 60% of the time.

Well you might never have seen Halo Reach graphics, but I would have seen better a long time ago.
