Console Wars Round 6: Xbox 360 Vs. PS3 (User Interface)

The wait is over, round 6 is finally here, and TechnoBuffalo users get to see it first.

Really like thier videos. And they are pretty unbiased on content. Thought they might have given the point to MS on the interface. But after his talk I can see why he gave it to the PS3. Will be curious on there next one about the interface.

thats why i love techbuffalo its very informative and not a hint of bias

oh CNET how stupid does this site make you look and feel?

That CPU and GPU comparison videos ... It clearly shows that multiplatform games can look better on PS3 ... its evidently developers are stingy ba$tards and dont want to shell extra money for PS3 version. They are simply porting Xbox 360 version to PS3 without using SPU what they are designed for.

I've gone through both systems' GUIs. Personally, I prefer the PS3s XMB. Things are laid out logically and grouped equally as well. I found things on the 360's GUI kind of ambiguous. I found myself searching through the various selections and it took me a bit to find the system settings. On the PS3's XMB, the system settings encompass a branch itself. Maybe it's just me, but I like the PS3's GUI over the 360's. Just a personal interpretation. Other people no doubt, find more favour in the 360's GUI.

Guy explained why blu-ray matters for more than cutscenes, the rigors of programming on the PS3 compared to 360 but the results you can get if you put in the work.

User interface is really a matter of opinion, no?

Despite only owning a PS3, I cannot knock the NXE interface as it is so visually impressive, and I think this is the big thing that Sony need to catch up on.

No matter how you swing it TechBuffalo does a very thorough job of explaining the pros and cons for all their console war topics. It seems very clear all bias are laid aside and the more professional approach is extended in video breakdowns. A very reliable tech site.

If the PS3 does not over take the 360 in sales by the end of 2010 then it most likely won't. I would be surprised if it didn't though, PS3 has clearly built up alot of momentum going into 10.

I prefer the nxe of the media bar, just becuase nxe does look way nicer and not as boring but the media bar does run quicker but not by much. I also prefer the nxe because of ingame tracks and cross game chat. but both are great in their own way!

Sony has added to it here and there but the more stuff they add the longer the menus get scrolling all the way down on some of the busier menus..

NXE looks more user friendly since everything is a large Icon from left-to-right.

I think asking someone that has never seen or used either could give you a fresh opinion on the interfaces.

The only section on the PS3 where there are alot of menu selections is the settings section? and its still way easier to access settings than doing it on NXE.

lots of tech words in there...
