PS3 Vs XBox 360.....

Post by JackBurton-Me » Mon Jan 04, 2010 3:41 pm

Who is winning the battle at the moment would you say?

I personally reckon that after a slow start the PS3 is now widely seen as the superior console over XBox 360. I think the 360 is the Atari ST to the PS3's Amiga.

Thoughts?

There's no clear superior console. My vote goes the 360 atm due to shmups in japan.

I still prefer the 360 but have started to warm to the PS3 now.

360 gets my vote due to the whole dashboard/front end setup.

The PS3 is absolutely superb as a media server though. So it gets more use for watching downloaded films and TV than it does for games.

While the PS3 may be the superior machine, it hasn't got an obviously superior software library, with most titles being for both platforms with minimal discernible differences, and no exclusive titles hitting the highs of Halo 3 or Gears of War.

Unless the PS3 gets a brace of outstanding exclusives, or developers start pushing the boat out for PS3 versions, that situation won't change.

I have herd a rumour (possibly unfounded) that because the PS3 is so awkward to develop for, it's easier for multi platforms titles to be developed on the 360 then ported over. Could there be any truth in this?
HADDOCKEN!

In terms of sales, I think the PS3 is ahead... in my opinion, they're equals but the PS3 has the edge with the "Playstation" brand, which makes people choose the PS3 over the 360 because they've already played the PS1 or PS2.
But I really love my 360 to death. The games are great, the online play is fun and there are no problems to play and the achievement collecting got me hooked instantly.
I'll probably buy a PS3 in a few months, but I'm only tempted by MGS4, God of War 3 & Uncharted 2...

Ironically, I think the 360 is the PS2 of this generation and that it will remain so.

Well my PS3 is pretty much used for Bluray Movies whereas my 360 is for the most part gaming and streaming my music to my setup from my PC.

It's a shame, i know there are some corker games out there on the PS3, unfortunately i cannot warm to the PS3 controller over the 360, so i would rather purchase a game on the 360 as opposed to PS3.

Jesus, that was like double dutch there.

I've been using my PS3 for everything. I only got it at Christmas but so far I've picked up Uncharted 1, Pro Evo 2010 and Ghostbusters. I've been playing them all and using the PS3 for downloaded TV as well as playing Blu-Rays, photos etc. The iPlayer function is very handy as is the PSN HD Movie service. It's just class.

I would never have bought a 360 for the following reasons.

Paying for online - hassle
Not all models having even Wi-Fi as standard - hassle
RROD - disgrace
Dreadful 360 controllers - why are they so fat?

The only advantage I can see for the 360 now is how cheap it is, but even that is deceptive because of all the add-ons.

That's the way it see it too with the PS3 being the Xbox of last gen. In my personal view I think both consoles are great but overall I would say the Xbox 360 has the edge for me. 360 is still where it's at for racing games, Forza 3, Race Pro, PGR4 it just doesn't get any better. Plus I just love XBLA! games such as REZ, Banjo Kazooie, Trials HD and Shadow Complex are all great games with Perfect Dark HD coming soon!

Not in the UK or worldwide total. You mean in France?

I was going to write something similar - I agree 100%.
