PS3

The PS3 might not be looking so hot on the market now, but I predict that it will sky-rocket in the near future. If you look at its features from a glance, it is the best system out there, but that is at a glance.  You will see that their online will be better than x-box but currently it is a work in progress. For one, it is free so you are saving lets say $50 and it is in real dollars and not virtual money to make you seem that you are getting it for free. Their blue-ray player is built in, which is a big downside since blue-ray might not do so well, but you do not need to buy a $200 add-on unlike the 360. The games might look the same as the 360 now, but wait until next year and it will blow the 360 away. The controller is motion sensor, so that is a plus but it has no rumble. The Ps3 also has a web broweser so you can look at porn while fragging a friend.

If you break it down, the xbox is the same amount as the PS3.

Xbox 360 Platnium Edition ($400) + xbox live ($50+) + HD-DVD ($200) + HDMI cable (about $10) + anything else I am missing?= about $660

PS3 60GB ($600)+ HDMI cable (about $10) + anything else I am missing?= about $610 and you get 40gb more of space to save games, movies, etc; and a much faster system.

PS3

The PS3 only compition is the xbox 360, but the main competion is between blue-ray and HD-DVD. I think neither will win but that is just me.

PS3 is loosing in the short term but they will win in the long term, unless microsoft releases a new system to blow sony away!

    Fraggin’ and shaggin’? Classic, but only a matter of time until MS comes out with a browser for the 360.

    I don’t think there’s going to be a clear “winner” per se. I see it more like this:

    Wii – fun, party gamer
    360 – average, but not “hardcore” gamer
    PS3 – hardcore, mucho-power, screaming at people in France at 4 A.M. gamer

    I don’t think your price comparison is exactly fair. The thing about the Xbox is you’re given the choice of what you want. Don’t have a HDTV? Don’t get the $200 add-on. You’re not forced into buying anything you don’t want (or need).

    As far as power? The PS3 is the clear winner, but only time will tell if it means anything. A 50 GB BR-D game seems pretty far-fetched to me… By the time that actually means anything, I fear we’ll be in the next generation and Sony will be piping out another shiny overpriced machine.

    Microsoft and Sony both agree that if you are going to buy their systems, buy an HD TV. Many people now already have a HD TV so I do not think Sony is exactly forcing anyone to buy things they do not need, people need to upgrade, more and more games are becoming bigger and better so they need more space.
    How is the xbox 360 for casual gamers? There are some great games for it including Halo, Gears of War and many others which are far from just casual. Why can the PS3 not be casual?

    I hope.

    Still waiting for the killer game to pull me away from the thousands I’ve spent to build and rebuild my gaming PC.

    The SVGA input on my 50 inch LCD keeps me a little happy, too.
