Why neither the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 are better than one another

Ben, of RandomProdInc, writes "For the majority of this generation of I have been an Xbox 360 gamer, but I have recently bought an PlayStation 3 to add to my collection. One thing that has hit me though is how gamers always say one is always better than the other, when to be honest neither are the better console."

This guy gave out a list of great ps3 exclusives and said that xbox had to big guns in halo and gears and not much else, and then said that there was no clear winner. That's just stupidity.

If you're basing it complete exclusivity, that's stupid. Each console has their finer spots.

rabidpancakeburglar2804d ago (Edited 2804d ago )

Exactly, he gets it right that the online is better on the 360 but he says that the ps3 exclusives are much better and then puts them equal because of the xboxs 2 big exclusives

jessupj2803d ago

I want to ask a serious question.

Why do you think the 360 has better online when the PSN is free and has far more dedicated servers for it's games?

Jocosta2804d ago (Edited 2804d ago )

I don't like 90% of the Ps3 exclusives, which is what I bought one for.

Biggest2803d ago

Where is JaRule to make sense of this comment?

Tyre2803d ago (Edited 2803d ago )

@Jocosta There is more than at least 70% to like, what is wrong with u, if i may ask? Such a superficial remark, these exclusives cover almost every type of games, u'r not a gamer then, or a RTS only fan?

ATiElite2804d ago

Man with all the goodies being saved for E3 i guess editors have ZERO to talk about so here we are back to the 360 vs. PS3 debate.

Dear editor, ever heard of beating a dead horse that's already been turned into Glue and Pet Food then shitted out into the park and picked up and tossed into the trash then buried in a land fill?

well that's what your beating right now with the PS3 vs. 360 article.

lil Titan2804d ago

to each his own, I like the PS3 over anything thats out now and im entitled to my own opinion and personally i believe 360 is holding back this generation with there lack of having a blu-ray drive or they could of had HD DVD but thats just one of the problems i have with 360 but let an 360 owner tell it the story is gonna be switched around. im just saying people have preferences so i dont know why this article is relevant if everyone has a particular taste already. subconsciously just by looking at both consoles or systems you already know which one you like more

the_best_player2803d ago

PS3 has the best exclusives and most, I know I got my console for games and Sony is doing a great job of it.

who cares! i enjoy the best of both worlds...and a wii.

Kran2804d ago

I agreed with you up until you said Wii.

news4geeks2804d ago (Edited 2804d ago )

Agreed Kran, wii sucks. Worst console of the past 15 years. 360 and ps3 are both good but ps3 edges it as the best overall(360 was the best early this gen).

What's wrong with Wii? It has some nice exclusives

Fulensenca2803d ago (Edited 2803d ago )


Compared to what 360 and PS3 can offer, the price tag compared to hardware power and the relationship between what was promised and what has been obtained, the Wii was a sad joke.
I know there are some very good games ( can' t wait to play No More Heroes HD ), but it' s just not enough to justify the purchase.

This is not just my opinion. Let' s be honest: ***Nintendo-has-blatantly-miss ed-a-great-opportunity-for-play ers,Period.***

Fortunately, they understood early on that the name Revolution was wrong.

Trusting of the brand I bought the Nintendo Wii the first day and a month after I sold it.
The worst purchase I've ever done.

I WAS a Nintendo fan. I still play on my loved SNES occasionally.

-Alpha2803d ago


Hardware-wise, sure.

But I was talking about exclusives, which they most certainly have, and while their direction is disappointing, I find myself more interested in Wii exclusives than 360 exclusives

Look at it this way. Each console is superb & does what it does very well. They both have certain features the other doen't have & that's what makes them just about on par. Love them both!

Rybakov2804d ago

do you get entertainment out of the games out play and being able to talk with friends and compare play throughs?

if the answer is yes then who the hell cares which system you play its all about the entertainment you get out of it

if the answer is no then your a sad person who shouldn't be gaming

me? i have both systems and play them both just as much as the other....and i occasionally play a PC game but not big into it...i also don't have the money to drop for every new upgrade for it every other month to be able to play the newest game

Chnswdchldrn2804d ago

implying PC gamers upgrade their hardware every month

just so ya know, there wouldnt be any PC gamers if every new PC game required an upgraded machine because NOBODY HAS THE MONEY TO DO THAT

it would be idiotic to think otherwise

-Alpha2803d ago (Edited 2803d ago )

"i also don't have the money to drop for every new upgrade for it every other month to be able to play the newest game"

Not only do you not need a new upgrade every month, but the games STILL look better than console games a majority of the time on older hardware.

Sorry, but this is just a myth

death2smoochie2803d ago (Edited 2803d ago )

A 3 year old PC without upgrades will run most if not all games better than consoles. The MYTH that you have to spend $$$ on a PC gaming rig is just that: MYTH

(That's from 2009 and those same parts are even cheaper now...and that rig will run circles around th Xbox360 and PS3)

Tyre2803d ago (Edited 2803d ago )

@death2smoochie not in 2005/2006 and ur to optimistic about a 3 year old PC without certainly can't run God of War 3/Uncharted 2 proper. I've got a 3 year old PC without upgrades and it can't run MW2/CoD5 properly. And i really mean Without Upgrades. But there are so many different setups so i can't speak for all PCs like u do.

2fk2804d ago

yup i like them equally =)
