I think the PS3 is the best system out of any the three game systems because of
A) Free online, which is also improving quite a bit
B) Is somewhat cheaper than the Xbox 360
PS3: -----------Xbox 360:
60gb PS3-$500 -----------Xbox 360 Elite (120gb)- $450
HDMI slot-Free---------HDMI slot- Only with Elite
Wifi-Free ----------Wifi- $99
Rechargeable Controllers-Free --------Recharge Kit- $20
Online-Free -----------Online- $50 a year
Blu-Ray Player-Free---------------HDDV... Player- $179
Total: $500 ----------------Total: $798
You might not use these accessories, so that’s why I say the PS3 is “somewhat cheaper”
Also why I said you have to get an Elite to compare it to the PS3 is because the elite is the only 360 console that has HDMI, which basically means it’s the only package that can get you true High-Def.
C) Has great exclusives out/coming out and all of these are different variety:
Heavenly Sword, Lair, Eight Days, Warhawk, Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Online, Killzone 2, Grand Turismo 5, Little Big Planet, Getaway 3, Driver 5, God of War III, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Jax and Daxter: Lost Frontier, Motorstorm, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Resistance: Fall of Man, SOCOM: Confrontation, Tekken 6, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, and White Knight Story. All which are coming out in a year or a little over
PS: Many of the great games are not exclusives anyway, so exclusives are not that important to me
Ok, now onto the boring stuff…
D) The PS3 is superior due to cell technology. This allows the PS3 to produce complex graphics far superior to any other console. The PS3 has a little over 2tfps and the Xbox 360 has 1. This basically means how well the system can do generating backgrounds like rain, clouds, etc. It also has to do with the amount of realism in graphical explosions and destruction scenes. The down side is however that it will be a while until game producers can max its potential because the cell processor is somewhat new in technology. That’s why games on the Xbox 360 look somewhat better right now. However, in about a year or two the PS3 will have better graphics. This is somewhat good too because then Sony wont have to make another console as soon because the PS3 has room to grow with technology, but then again nobody knows what technology can do in 5 years.
E) PS3 will probably be the better quality as in life span. Many Xbox 360s are already having hardware problems (25%-33% Xbox 360 have 3 red rings of death) when there has only been a reported 1% failure chance with the PS3. PS3 also has an emergency shut down feature, so if you PS3 overheats it will automatically shutdown until it is out of a dangerous temperature.
F) The PS3 as Blu-Ray. The Blu-ray disc can hold up to 50gb allowing game developers to develop a longer game, better graphics, etc. The Xbox 360 only uses its game on classic DVD discs, which can only hold around 8 or 10gb depending on what type of DVD. Theres nothing wrong with this, but as games get more complex the more space they take up, so I wouldnt be surprised if games are 2 discs for the xbox 360 in the future.
Finally! We’re done with technology and hardware talk, but as you can see this shows how well the PS3 is designed.
Final Conclusion: Xbox 360 has great games and isnt a bad system, but the extra 100 bucks are worth getting the ps3.
