PS3 games produced are on Hd 50gig blueray (more space for better graphics without sacrificing game levels and game size..) GTA4 developers even stated that the game will have better graphics and gaming on the ps3 version and are having issues with the 360 version because of 8gig dvd game format... They may have to make the 360 version on multiple disc so if you like getting out of your chair alot while playing, .....
360-elite games produced on dual layered 8gig dvds
game developers are finding the 360 format to limiting and finding that they have to sacrifice game graphics or gaming levels and challenges...Bungie the makers of HALO series have parted the exclusive ways with Microsoft and are now developing games that are multiplatform...

THe elite and new 360s hdmi, 65nm, red ring of death--Microsoft has no Idea what the cause is, You can't fix what you can't find. Game producer are even finding that the engines that Micorsofts provides them to develope games on are getting the Red ring of death and it is not caused by just the hardware engineering flaws. They are seriously frustrated and that is one reason Bungie the maker of the Halo series has left their exclusive contract with microsoft and is now developing games for other systems. Microsoft still owns Halo though. So yes all the 360s even the new ones are all vulnerable.
THe 360 sales numbers are game producer driven by three titles HALO, bioshock ( rumored to be multiplatform soon and availble to the pc now) and Gears of war (available to the PC now)...If it wasn't for those titles many gamers wouldn't tolerate the limitations and engineering flaws of the 360
Get the ps3 you can use it for so much more. We own all three. THe wii, elite and ps3... The ps3 will take you into the next two generations of game consoles... The 360 will have to be re deigned or another generation produced by 2009
Graphics - PS3 has some games that have better graphics, due to extended production time, but Xbox 360 dominates most games in graphics (bearing in mind that these are not much graphical differences, so it won't matter much), the PS3 all in all, has more graphics power than the 360 which may prove vital later down the line.
Games - Xbox 360 has tonnes of games to go along with, but it has been said that they are too similiar, only dipping their hands into the 'shooter' genre, whilst PS3 does not have many games, but they are over a wide rane of genres. Since Xbox 360 has over a year's production time more than PS3, the games will be much more but PS3 may dominate.
Online play - The 360 has a much more vast environment for online play than the PS3. But while you have to pay monthly, it is a split decision.
Media - The 360 can be connected up to Windows Media Center, it can interact with it to send music, videos, pictures, and even MSN can be used. The 360 wired controllers are compatible with PC. 360 cannot use Blu-ray, but can rival it with HD-DVD. PS3 can support up to 7 wireless controllers, support Blu-ray DVDs, CDs, images, PSP.
System issues - Now, heres for the not so good part, it is reported that between 25% - 33% of all Xbox 360's bought have shown the RROD, this is a serious dent in the 360 market. Due to the design of the Xbox 360, there has been an increased risk in the system being rendered unusable. Nyko intercooler fans have been introduced onto the market, which really shows up the 360. Overheating issues, disc scratching issues, disc read errors have also been reported, with Microsoft either turning their backs, or giving a helping hand, either though there is a high number of unsatisfied customers. On the other hand, the PS3 has only a few problems, none of which are as severe as the 360's, still making it playable. But caring for your systems will reduce the risk of failure and malfunction.
Price - PS3 ranges from £299.99 to £379.99, since the price reduction which was now been widespread. In America, the equivalent of those values will be ranging from $399.99 to $499.99. The Xbox 360 ranges from £189.99 - £300.00 in England, and $219.99 - $449.99
. In reality, the Playstation 3 may cost more as a single payment, but overtime, if you are one of the more 'unfortunate ones' to buy the 360, you will pay less, but repair costs, add-ons etc may cost you even more. If you really care for your 360, I can guarantee, that it will last you a very long time unless you are 'less fortunate', Make sure to give the 360 at least 6 inches of ventilation space and it will last a whole lot longer.
