XBox 360 price vs PS3 price

Edit: This post generated a very interesting and animated discussion. Let’s continue it in the PS3 Forums I just opened for You.

This is the link to the forum post:

Enjoy!

Merrill Lynch (!?) is giving us some precious information more about PS3 price. We have an estimation of hardware costs for all next generation consoles! Cool.

Let’s start from the results: XBox, in the second half of 2006, should be 50% cheaper than ps3. This is too bad :(

So, Xbox 360 seems to win the price contest vs. Sony Playstation 3. Why?

Let’s go deeper…

“…The PS3 will not only be significantly more costly than Xbox 360 at launch, but will continue to operate at a cost disadvantage for several years. … We think that the Xbox 360 could be selling at half the price of PS3 in the latter half of 2006.”

“…Our analysis indicates that Microsoft has a significant advantage in terms of cost. Taking Sony’s weakened financial condition and Microsoft’s deep pockets into consideration, we conclude that Microsoft’s Xbox 360 should emerge as the early winner in the next round of the game console wars.”

“Competitive pricing [for Microsoft] could hurt margins for Microsoft in the near term, but we think that Microsoft has the potential to exit 2006 with an installed base of 10 million units, with all that implies for more profitable software sales for 2007.”

They also said that ATI (GPU provider), Infineon (memory provider) and Marvel could all benefit from an early lead on Xbox 360.

Merrill Lynch thinks that the famous Cell processor will have an average cost of $160 while the Xenon CPU will stay around $100.

What about graphics? Lots of money here, as well. Both Nvidia’s RSX and ATI’s GPU will be around $100 , lowering to $30 over time.

Blu-Ray is another expensive gadget: at least $75.

About the RAM, Microsoft – again – will probably reduce costs as GDDR3 is already available on the market. Playstation 3 and its XDR are guilty about their being, as usual, out of standards. They always experiment new solutions. A big boost, and a big risk at the same time… and risks have a cost.

Hard Drives are’t going to be sold as standards, but as add-ons. So it’s hard to make predictions about them.

The report predicts that 2 millions of XBox 360 units will be sold in 2005, followed by 7 millions in 2006.

Again, let’s trust Sony. They aren’t going to fail with Playstation 3, it will be another great success.

If they let the Microsoft console come out before them it doesn’t mean they are too late… if Playstation 3 will cost more, it doesn’t mean it’s less convenient.

Then, games – and only games – will make the difference.

    microsoft will beat sony this time around because it is a system that strikes balance between hardware, software, and services. if you only have pure processing power just at a CPU level cough*PlayStation 2*cough* Cell *cough*, or a console that has an excellent graphics chip but its CPU is inefficient, the whole system is going to suck. and that is the truth.

  5. Kaneda said,

    Xbox 360 and PS3 are not for kids…

    I would rather buy PS3. It is more advance than Xbox 360…

    Don’t forget PS3 is compatible with older PS games…

    If you guys worry about pricing…then you guys should get Nintendo Revolution..

  6. ahmed said,

    how much is ps3?

  7. pedro said,

    They won’t get much tracation out of the backward compatibility argument(playing PS & PS2 games on PS3). You can probabely count the number of times you have wanted to play your ps games or a ps2 title you purchased a year ago on one hand. It is a very thin selling point.

    Sony shot themselves in the foot again.

  8. m-man said,

    you proably dont want to know how much a ps3 is going to cost.

  9. jesse said,

    it is supposed to be about $465 but people have started sayin that the price is goin down to th $400’s!!!

  10. karan said,

    regardless of how much the PS3 costs, simply because of the installed user base of PS1 and PS2, it will be a success. Also, unlike previous rounds in the console wars, there is no significant competitor – it’s Sony and Microsoft, with Nintendo in the corner amusing themselves. The PS3 is far more together as a device than most people are giving it credit for. The Blu-ray drive is an advantage to both the PS3 and the Blu-ray format, since Xbox 360 doesn’t have the HD-DVD drive installed.

    Also, the Dreamcast pretty conclusively proved that being first and cheapest does not necessarily mean domination at the end of the day. Should be interesting either way, to say the least.

  11. poetry said,

    I agree.

    Anyway, about the price…

    It’s worth it. You have sufficient time to collect enough money to buy a PS3, until Spring 2006 or later. Just do it, as you probably did with PSP.

    Sony PSP is a Gaming Console (running older console emulators and homebrews as well), a Music/Photo/Video Player, a TV, a GPS, a Movie Player, an EBook reader, an organizer, a Web Browser, a Storage Unit and much more. It’s a REVOLUTION.

    Do you really think Playstation 3 is not going to be a surprise / is not going to be worth its price?

    The Dreamcast example is a perfect one.

  12. John The Revelator said,

    Just to clear things up, the Dreamcast, in the eyes of many, is better than the Playstation 2. Ask any true gammer and you will get the same response; Dreamcast was far superior than the PS2.

    Now then, as for the nextgen line up, who are you guys kidding. We all know everyone will purchase all the new systems as they did with lastgens lineup. As for whcih one will be the best, like the good man up stairs said, “…games – and only games – will make the difference.”

  13. U.S.A. vs. Japan said,

    Actually the price for the PS3 has been released to be $500 as stated by Sony. However most financial analysts say the are low-balling to steer people away from the X360 and wait, and when indeed it arrives it will be $600-$650 based on the high cost of mfg. especially blu-ray. Also right before the PS3 comes out Microsoft will lower the price of the X360 so it will be half the price of the PS3 at the PS3 launch. I’m sold already on the U.S. product.

  14. […] Almost 75-80% of PS3 articles, published over time, are IDENTICAL. Ok, let’s make the point of the situation: EVERYONE, included me, must take PS3 news from bigger websites (IGN, Gamespot, Joistiq etc.) having direct contacts with major gaming companies. There is no alternative solution. I do it as well, I check bigger online magazines, I take out the news and I rewrite them, with personal impressions and references. I try to select accurately the best (and only the best & breaking) news, to create communication with my 800+ daily readers, to make my bLog less formal and “purely informative”, to discuss (as it’s happening in the xbox vs ps3 price contest) . To be, at least, friendly. But I counted over 15-20 ps3 websites / blogs COPYING and PASTING those “breaking” news, in some case without even reporting the source. They just play on different search engine keywords, so people will read their website instead of another, to read identical things. Now, this is not a new phenomenon, it always happened with newspapers (actually sucking news from wikinews – blah), tv news, etc… but to create a blog talking about playstation 3 and only pasting things written by others on it is insane. Why are you creating a website if there is another with the same contents? You are tricky. The sad thing is that with a small amount of keywords play, and 15-30 minutes / day of copy/paste work, you can obtain loads of visitors (=$$$). […]

  15. Who Cares? said,

    Xbox is $299 to $399 depending on which system, PS3 will enter the market around the same price point.

    As to backward compatibility being a non argument, its an absolute argument.

    With an installed base of over 90 Million Units (compared to a paltry 20 Million for XBOX I) Installed base is huge.

    Mom and Dad have hundreds if not thousands of dollars invested in software, they aren’t going to just throw it away when they know the next system can play it. Will the “Serious Gamer” read 20-30 something that live in their parents basement care? Probably not, but they are going to buy both systems anyway, just like they have now…. because sooner or later they will have to play some Game that is only available on one system or the other. However these “serious” gamers aren’t the market.. they are a dedicated subsection of the market, but are not going to make or break a console.

    A console’s success is for WIDE appeal, and with a huge installed base, Sony will remain on top when the smoke clears. More than 100 Million shipped PS1s, Closing in on that many PS2’s and a guaranteed 10 year lifespan by sony of the consoles, give it a huge huge huge leverage point.

    Obviously this christmas season the hype is going to be all around MS and the XBOX II, but by Christmas 2006, spring 2007, Sony will still be the dominant Console manufacturer.

    This conjecture that PS3 will be twice the cost of an XBOX is commical. Sony isn’t going to give up market share over pricing, it will lose money on the box if need be and make it up in licensing. Something XBOX did for years (and for all I know is still doing.. in 2004 the XBOX division was still losing money on its previous console)

  16. Censored (12 yo Fanboy) said,

    u guys dont get it do u. the freking ps3 is gonna be way better the the sissy xbox 360. but my advice is to get the ps3 when its the second year so it will get cheaper.

  17. Johanson said,

    PS3 rules Xbox 360 doesn’t. Although the dreamcast was superior to the ps2 sony prevailed. Playstation has also been around longer, therefore it has a lot of loyal ps2 lovers. Also, people with many games for playstation and ps2 aren’t going to want to buy Xbox.

  18. iamamazing said,

    I think PS3 will be better?

  19. jeremy said,

    all r wrong ps3 the best why we still talking about dreamcast come on get in 2005 ok people.

  20. m-man said,

    i find it funny how all yall can diss the xbox360 and have already crowned the ps3 the best console when so much info about the ps3 has not even come out yet. lets just get some more facts before we start making hasty statements.

  21. Andrew said,

    Might have to go with the xbox on this one…i mean so many more options…dl music, games, play your ipod music and mp3 player music.. has great grpahics better processor than the ps3 and more storage room. I actually like the ps2 better than the regular xbox but on this one xbox has taken it, i mean dont get me wrong there both great also i heard that the ps3 games will be around 70-80 bucks each because of the disc reader in the ps3.. I dont think another will be sipapointed on either of these new generation gaming systems PLEASE email me at xfoxracing023x@aol.com if you find out any more information on either of these systems thanks

  22. rob xbox said,

    xbox 360 is a good sistem and it has xbox live …………..ps3 it has 7 remots ..but who is going to use 7 …..im not going to buy 7 and what games can play 7 all in one screen some times more isent beter …when i what more people i go on xbox live.

  23. thechinaman said,

    im sorry but im still with ps3 on this one. it may not has the storage space of the 360, but there are usb ports where you can put make space. sony has always used a some sort of memory stick for memory anyway. ps3 will come with HD features which may bump up the price but is well worth it if you ask me. but i will say it is a hard choice to pick between one game you can only play on the 360(halo 3) and the system which has good games like GTA and Call of Duty. i still want the ps3 to be tops if your worried about money. don’t buy either, they maybe expensive but who cares i still have my ps2 and play it often and my xbox has already broken. at least for me i can say my ps2 has lasted longer then my xbox

  24. xbox guy said,

    xbox360 is better because xbox blown ps2 away so 360 wiill kill dumb ps3

  25. xbox guy360 said,

    m-mam says no stats are out for ps3 of coarse there are tonssss!but 360 will kill

  26. I have a Microsoft xbox 360 and it FUCKING suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Iwant a Sony
    PlayStation 3 now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. thechinaman said,

    xbox only beat ps3 in the beginning only because xbox came out LATER!!! so we already know who will win this match up. PS3

  28. xbox360man said,

    I have seen the spec’s for the two systems and they are close, ps3 is up in some areas and the xbox 360 is up in some areas. My friend owns a 360 and the gameplay in Perfect Dark Zero is a step up from current generation, but the launch titles for 360 do not use all of the 360 and the 360 is capable of running much more advanced games with better graphics. What will really decide this console war is the games. All the great games made in japan, that were only for ps2, are now being made for both 360 and ps3. Also the 360 has all the microsoft game studios games (Halo, Project Gotham, PDZ, ect.) and i think xbox 360 will come ahead this time.

  31. chinese gamer said,

    OK People lets face it!!!!!
    I beleive everyone love PS3 over Xbox360
    who doen’t want to have a nicer and pricier unit sitting at their living room?
    but in reality how many of you can afford a $500-600 console?
    smart buyer will go for 360, when they can perform almost the same.
    is just like how many civic is on the roal compare to porche?
    plus game manufacturer will always try to build a game that will fit in both console to incress their profit, so that means the PS3 might not be able to perform its full ability. (maybe in certain games) because most games will try to cope with the the lower performing system instead of making a game which is not suitable for both systems. Also, microsoft never expect make alot of money out of Xbox, they just wanna monopolize the market. They just want to kick sony out of the game so that in the future sony will not invest further in the games market. Microsoft has been known to kick other competitor out of the market such as by making windows and other programs much cheaper to us than their true prices. Not only Microsoft’s council is much cheaper also they also have better managing skills. I duno if you guys have been playing PS2 online, but if you have tried both systems online then u’ll find out that xbox 2 works much more effectient when the online games. And this will continue on…………Me personally is also a hardcore fan of PS2, but I will probably buy an Xbox 360 when PS3 comes out.

    ps3 has more featuters and every one likes it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

    Dont get me rong here but both systems are very powerful and i am excited for games coming out for both of them. I have done some research on both these systems just for my curiosity. The graphics for the xbox 360 “might” be superior by a small margine, and here are some of the reasons why. Xenos vs RSX Nvidia has stated and stated again that their will be more powerfull gpu’s befor the Ps3 is released. In fact there is a single gpu now that might be more powerful than the RSX wich is the 7800 GTX 512 mb version which is runing at a stock clock at 560mhz and can be overcloked to 620 mhz, the Ps3 has a 550mhz clock ( both have 24 pipelines). Call of Duty 2 has many benchmarks all over the net for the 7800 GTX 512mb version. On a resoluthion slightly lower than 720p for a pc monitor the 7800GTX 512 runs the game at an average of 57 frames per second with 4XAA. The xenos runs the game at a minimum of 60 fps 4XAA (not even the average fps wich would be slightly higher). The xenos also runs Call of Duty 2 with slightly better immage quality such as bloom efects. By the way it was Infinaty ward that stated that the xbox 360 was runing Call of Duty 2 with a minimum of 60 fps. The PC the benchmarkes were taken from were from a dual core cpu, and call of duty 2 only utilizes 2 threads of the xbox 360 3 cores cpu cores. If you dont believe me google it yourself and you should see similar results. The xenos is a very misunderstood gpu because it is the first of its kind released to the public. The xenos has 48 unified shader pipelines but only works in one way so it is basicly equall to 24 pipelines at a 500 mhz frequensy. But the thing is that the unified shaders have been said to be 95% eficient to its theoretical power while modern gpu’s such as the RSX run somewhere inbetween 60-80% of its theoretical power. So theoreticaly if you do the math the xenos is basicly equal to a modern 32 pipeline chip at 500 mhz. The Xbox 360 has some advantage in image quality because it is almost direct X 10 complient or in other words direct X 9+ complient. Why is this feature in the Xenos and not in the Rsx is propably because of the xenos’s unified shader pipeline which Nvidia and Ati will switch to at the end of next year in preperation for Direct X 10 for the new windows called Longhorn. The xenos will have some disadvanteges in Open Gl 2.0 games such as Quake 4 because the xenos is not 100% compatible with OpenGl 2.0 so you can see a very noticeable performance hit in this game. If you want to no about how the xenos’s unified shader architecture is so eficient go to beyond3d and look under xbox 360 or xenos demistified, some people might have a hard time understanding what he is talking about though. The reason i stated only xbox 360 advanteges is for the reson that is this forum people have been posting more ps3 advanteges than xbox 360. I am almost certain through my research on the net that the xbox 360 will actualy have a slight edge in graphics against the Ps3 but i can not state that as a fact because the Ps3 has not been released to the public, of course. There are so many other areas that make a console good, in this post i just picked one topic. Both have their advanteges and disadvanteges, Xbox 360 propably has a more powerful gpu where the ps3 propably has a more powerful cpu. But only time will tell when both systems have been out for a while and the game manufacurers can use each systems abilities to the fullest.

    PS3 VS. XBOX360 here’s my opinion on this battle of the consoles ! XBOX360 released last week! Very long lines for the XBOX360 console ! This is huge for Microsoft which is great ! PS3 will not be out till 2006 but, on the other hand there’s a reason for this, I’m sure. We all know PS2 won the battle over Microsoft Xbox. Sony Playstation right now are lossing huge sales! I really believe PS3 will be the one to beat even though Microsoft got their XBOX360 out first. I remember back when Sony released their first console the PS1 they just flat took over everyone! We will have to see as soon as Sony sets their release date of the PS3. I know it’s in 2006 sure the price will be at a higher price but, on the other hand which console will be better XBOX360 or PS3 ? I will tell you this, I will not be buying a XBOX360 the reason because, I know PS3 will be the best console ever made. Microsoft is a very,very big company to compete against. Sony Playstation also in return is a very,very big company and knows the gamming world and they never quit. Here’s an old saying ” Some things are worth waitting for”. I’m not trying to knock out Microsoft and I could be wrong XBOX360 might be the one to beat. We will have to wait and see in 2006. I’m a avid fan to Sony Playstation and always will be. Like I said, there’s a reason Sony Playstation didn’t get the PS3 out this year.

  37. creg said,

    I read alot of your comments about the PS3 VS XBOX360 one said XBOX360 he owns sucks and he wants a PS3 now. This so far is a disappointment for the Microsoft XBOX360. It’s like I said ” Some things are worth waitting for”. Alot of you will agree or disagree depending on if your an Playstation fan or Microsoft XBOX fan. I wasn’t about to wait in long lines for a XBOX360 now if it were a Playstation 3 yes I would for sure or then again I might not. Sony Playstation is in fact doing everything the right way while Microsoft is in fact selling XBOX360’s very fast! Sony is building PS3’s so everyone can get a PS3 console. It’s like I said, Sony will win this battle over the consoles. Also what I think is really cool is Sony desided to go with the blue ray and XBOX didn’t. I’ve already seen the PS3 meeting and it was very long but, worth watching how the graphics will look like and it’s really cool like real life. Also Microsoft has one screen while PS3 has 2. There’s alot more that, we will see for the PS3 in 2006 Gammers!!!

    Ok, so what to buy, whats better, whats more powerful …ect
    I have looked at the specs and knowing whats needed for amazing games the xbox 360 wins hands down, but i think microsoft have made a big rushing the lauch and consiqiently the games.

    As i sat down and started setting up the xbox 360, my heart pounding, my palms sweating, every part of my body screaming at me to hurry up. I powered it up and remembered the feeling i got all those years ago when first getting my ps2 and gran turismo 3. The feeling i got next wasn’t quite the same as the last time, and almost knocked me back for six. No, this feeling was of disapointment and confusion which left me very hollow inside.

    I suppose it boiled down to this question, what is next gen?

    See, my inturpretation of next gen is, (and if there are any developers reading please take note) ……….doing the impossible, doing the imagenible, doing what you couldn’t doing what you couldnt do before……….and no im not talking about graphics.

    Its always nice to see pretty graphics in a game, but this is custom, this is expected and does not, by any means, make a game next gen.

  40. random guy said,

    wtf are you talking about, next generation console? you shouldn’t type when your stoned outta your mind

  41. jay said,

    Sadly the person that belives the ps3 to be 2 times as powerful as the xbox 360 is very mistaken. Yes the ps3 has 2X the Gflops or Terraflops as the xbox 360 but terflops is not an acurate way to judge graphical performance. Heck the Ps2 had more than double Gflops than the xbox but the xbox is superior in the graphicaal end of both consoles. Those specs released for the ps3 they picked and choosed the stats that they had higher than the xbox 360. Dont believe me then why did they not release how many pipelines were in the rsx until after E3. The point of this post i just wrote here is not to state that the ps3 has double the teraflops as the xbox 360 and is twice as powerful or the xbox 360 has double the pipelines in its gpu and it is twice as powerful. Just because one spec is higher than the other does not mean the total performance of the system is better. Next time you do as much reserch as looking at a spec sheet head to head xbox 360 vs ps3 and seeing one spec higher than the other of numbers you dont understand dont state that one system is better than the others because in many cases consoles just release the numbers that beet the other console even if they truly do not meen anything to fool nyeve people like you who fall for that kind of trickery. Both systems are doing this not just one or the other.

  42. max said,

    Microsoft isn’t realeasing enough 360 becaus eit is a market strategy, the are trying to get consummers to say hey the 360 is selling fast i need to get one before they run out.I’m not trying to defending either console what you choose is your choice im just stating the facts.

  43. bev th14 said,

    Let’s face it,ps3 is gonna sell whether you hate it or love it. Gamers are loyal to a product and don’t change consoles very easily. As some have mentioned above, the games are the most important selling point and the graphics of course. PS has a brilliant selection of games and cater to everyones needs. Great graphics, great games, you gotta love PS.

  44. zwanchis said,

    Search google, and look for what kind of programming you will need, for the games. You should find multithreading, VFX and some other things. Its basically for PowerPC programming. The games will need better programmers, and betters compilers, thats the difficult part for the PS3. We will not have the problems of the PS2, too hard to pramming it, the PS3 its gonna be easier, and the Hardware its better than the xbox360. So you know what to wait.

  45. max said,

    Like alot of people stated above only the ganes will tell,as well as the price and of the console and the price of the games

  46. mikel said,

    lets honest, who the hell is going to buy ps3 when it costs
    500$ and you still need to buy the hard drive to make it do what evryone thinks it can do. the games will be very pricy as well, because of the blu ray thingy. my friend just go a 360 and its great, but im goin to wait till next november when the price drops to get one. i have actually been looking into buying a ps3 myself but its really not what its cracked up to be. trust me, if you want the most bang for your buck, get the 360, i have done extensive reasherch and cocluded that the 360 is the ultimate choice.

  47. mikel said,

    alot of ppl will by ps3 three because sony boys r stuborn *******

  48. max said,

    i aggre with mikel in my oppinion he is right.

  49. jay said,

    i agree with mikel also

  50. jim said,

    the graphic card of xbox 360 is base on precedent gen of graphic cards of ati r420 so every characteristics (cor speed frequency,memory speed frequency, etc) are almost the same as x850xt even the 48 unified shader pipelines are working in a group of 4×16 and only 16 are pixel shader and 16 vertex shader at a time so basikally it’s a 16 pipelines technology. The gpu of ps3 is one gen above from the gpu of xbox360 the only different from pc gaming and xbox gaming is that xbox360 have 3core cpu and thats provide the gpu to full of it’s performance. Sure the xbox 360 is excellent choise for the money you spend but it’s not better than the upcomming ps3. All this from a pc gamer and a futere ps3 owner

  51. $justin$ said,

    Wat is wrong with u people x box 360 is not comparible to ps3. ps3 is 4 times as powerfull better graphics and far more superior than x box 360.as for nintendo revolution its gona be another piece of cr@p like sega dreamcast any wayz i wanted to express my opinion PS. BUY PS3!!!!!!!!!! ITS WORTH UR MONEY AND FUN TO COME !!!!!!!!

  52. Velocity said,

    yeah that’s all I hear about the PS3 and 360.don’t think the PS3 is not going to have any performance problems either.yes taking time on a console is the best way to go,however sony is having one hell of a time with making the PS3……so in short, the reasin why sony is taking it’s time is because most of their time they are still making the ps3 and panicking.all I see from sony are game pictures that they claim are real in game footage.yeah so the hype is on,microsoft fucked up,but it’s all part of their pkan you see.
    don’t worry the ps3 will be great,just not as great as sony will be claiming!

  53. max said,

    some sony developers jumped ship to work on the 360.

  54. max said,

    in my opinion i think that the 360 lived up to the hype exept for the gliches and problems.

  55. mikel said,

    justin ur a moron, for all u know ps3 ppl may be lying to us about its specs just like they did with the ps2, and even if those are the specs, a good ga,ming consul is not just a bunch of #’s on paper, its how those numbers relate to each other. all of the components of the 360 work in unison to make it work very efficiently, but those two terraflops are nuthing without a large graphics processer to amek them work, and that is something ps3 doesnt have.

  56. mikel said,

    justin, u rilly think a ps3 is worth 800$(canadien) youd have to be a frikin nerd to buy that, wont you, when you can get the 360 at the same time for half the price. and if sony is telling the truth about there specs (which i highly doubt), then would you really notice the difference. i mean how much more can you improve opun something thats state of the ark like the 360, its top of the line, may b ps3 is more powerful, but wen ur gaming, u wont notice that little extra nudge of power it offers, besides im a fan of alot of the xbox games anyway, i could care less for playstation

    Better graphics – Xbox
    Better utilities (xbox live) – Xbox
    Ability to rip songs on – xbox
    Comon ps2 peeps You have to admit the original xbox is a superior console to the Playstaytion 2. Now one of the only reasons the PS2 sold better than the xbox is it had a fan base from the original Playstaytion. Now that xbox is out it now has a fairly widespread fan base aswell making it fairly even. On the Issue of backwards compatibility, Your original xbox doesn’t stop working. And the games you’d (really) want to play (halo, halo 2, forza, splinter cell) will work if you got the 360 with the hard drive anyway (most people did). Oh and backwards compatability… hmm… could that actually be holding sony back? The control schemes are different, ( and the controllers too) so maybe a better controller could have been made? Also you rarely if ever notice PS3 fanboys qouting the specs. You usually get something along these lines… ” PS3 wil pwn xbox 360″ Or ” PS3 rules all” And those quoting the sales against xbox… sales dont mean the consumer obtained a superior product. Those stuck on sony’s bandwagon are going too fast to get off, and unfortunate as it is, they are in for a bumpy ride

  58. mikel said,

    damn right nutraul, sony made a huge mistake, and all there fanboys that are still going to be loyal to them ARE a mistake. like ” yah lets go spend 800$ on ps3, then lets buy games for 100$ too! yah blu ray is awsome, well it is useless, wut the hell are u going to do with a disk that has 54 gigabites? burn stuff too it? well guess what u cant, ps3 is programmed or has a chip that duznt alow u to play shit! unless that shit is boughten from a store for like 100$

  59. mikel said,

    botttom line, sony is a mony stealing s.o.b. company and the ps3 sux balls, anyone wana object to that, kuz if u do, leave some evidece to back ur comebak up

  60. Skittles said,

    Well…I’m thinkin ps3…I 2 own the ps2 and play it every night..Yeah the xbox might have been superior to the ps2 BUT..Nobody bout that shit because everybody already had the ps2…I’m not goin with either one..I’m goin with the psp….So maybe ya’ll should wait and get both…me I dont have the money for all that shit so I’ll get the ps3 and the psp..for all the ps2 owners for ya’ll to diss the ps2 like that you need an ass woopen, but that is not for me to decide.

  61. max said,

    Go to xbox.com and it will give you everything you need to know about the 360 all the specs whats in it what comes in each box(premium or core system that is) all the accesories, game trilers game list all you need to know read THAT and THEN decide. OR you could find a friend who has one play it and see for yourself OR buy it and rent a game (or borrow from friend) and if you dont like it then return it if the store allowes this if not then disregard this last few statements.

    the PS3 is going to be around $300 if you pre-order it or get it right when it comes out but even if its expensive i would rather have it than the xbox 360. The 360 was rushed and has alought of problems, its not backward compatible, it freezes up, and it over heats!

  64. mikel said,

    playstation freak ur a fag, nintendo is for lil kids, and skittles, psp is a peice os shit, i have one, it brakes and skratches so easy, plus its too much money for a lil handheld, but at least ur not dising the 360, and max, u r right, those specs should be shouved in the sony boyz faces

  65. mikel said,

    caboos, those 360’z that moufunctioned were only 3%of all of them, so if u get one, u’ll most definently be satisfied with it, and were the hell did u hear ps3 will be around 300$, thats bulshit, even if it is, its nuthing without a hdd, wich will cost u an extra 100$-200$dollars

    I believe the blueberry muffin and the corn muffin are unquestionably one of the most evident comparisons to ever exist, as well as one of the most contrasting. In fact, I have much doubt that anyone could disagree with my point of view, except for the few weirdoes out there that I will try to convince now. In support of this, I have written the following essay.
    Blueberry muffins are without a doubt much different than corn muffins. One of the more distinguishable contrasts is the blueberries from the corn. I suppose this is a valid point, but I believe it goes much deeper than that. I think ingredients should be factored in on this inspiring contrast. Some of the corn muffin ingredients include corn meal, flour, baking powder, salt, and kernel corn. This contradicts with the blueberries milk, butter, cinnamon, and bisquick mix used in the making of blueberry muffins.
    Another conflicting aspect of the blueberry muffin and the corn muffin are the nutritional facts. Comparing and analyzing these facts would lead you to conclude that the corn muffin is better for your health. The average corn muffin consists of a total of 120 calories, 45 from fat, as opposed to the average blueberry muffin, accommodating 140 calories, 55 from fat. Moreover, the corn muffin contains 5 grams of fat, compared to the blueberry muffin with 6 grams. Furthermore, the corn muffin harnesses 6% daily value of calcium, and 2% daily value of vitamin A, while the blueberry muffin contains only 4% daily value of calcium, and 0% daily value of vitamin A. As you can see, this contrast is becoming undeniably more evident.
    There is yet an additional contrast that I must acknowledge, which is freshness. After a few days, blueberry muffins tend to become soft and squishy, making them undesirable and consequently offensive to eat. On the other hand, corn muffins stay crisp and invigorating, allowing them to be more delightful to eat.
    For the reasons above, you can without a doubt see that there are many substantial differences between the blueberry muffin and the corn muffin. As well as these conflicts, there are also many similarities. The following paragraphs will discuss these correspondences between the two.
    Corn muffins as well as blueberry muffins can both be incontestably classified as muffins, giving them very common characteristics, such as the same shape, and the same color. Both have golden brown tops, and scalloped bottoms, making them a very scrumptious snack.
    Conjointly, both corn muffins and blueberry muffins are immobile figures, unless acted upon by an outside force such as Adam’s hand or Dylan’s foot. Furthermore, both take countless hours and numerous tries in an attempt to obtain the perfect muffin.
    In any event, corn muffins and blueberry muffins are as in many ways different as they are the same. I anticipate that this essay has helped anyone in doubt of my theory stated in the first sentence to fully understand and distinguish the comparison and dissimilarity between corn muffins and blueberry muffins.

    Hey jim how can u say the ps3 rsx is a whole gen ahead of xbox 360 xenos. Yes you were right that it has the same unified shader arcitecture as the r420 but thats basicaly it. And no the r420 was not released to the public. The propable reason for this was propably because they were to difficult to manufacture/ cost at that time. The r420 has no realation to the X850XT in architecture at all because the X850XT has a standard shadar pipelines like all other graphics cards today except the xenos in the xbox 360. And a unified shade architecture means that if needed it can provide 48 shader options per cycle or 1 shader operation per cycle or any number inbetween 1 and 48 shader operations per clycle depending on what the game is demanding, and because of that feature it does not suffer from a performance hit as a traditional architecture wich can only call a fixed number of shader operations per clock which in the rsx is 8 shader operations. If you look at the need for shader operations in games they have been constanly have been more shader heavy, the xenos will beable to adjust to that without a performance hit while traditional pipeline architecture such as the rsx will have to loop its self to complete the task it is asked to do which again causes a great performance hit to the rsx. And last of all the xenos is Direct X 9.+ and shader model 3.+ while the rsx is just todays standard of Direct X 9.0 and shader model 3.0 compliant. Direct X 9.+ means that the xenos will have many of the same qualities as Direct X 10 when it comes out with Windows Longhorn propably in late 2006 or early 2007. Shader model 3.+ means that the xenos will have many of the same qualities as shader model 4.0 which will be avaliable at the same time as Direct X 10 is released, shader modleing is a graphical feature thet greatly increases image quality. There are so many other features the xenos has that the rsx does not but it would take me for ever to post them. Im just saying that jim was completly wrong about the xenos being current gen while the rsx is next gen he seem to have got the facts flip floped. Once again jim is another poster that defends his opinion with bulshit statistics

    Wake up people!!! Sony has been in the gaming market much longer than microsoft. I have played xbox 360 and I was not impressed. PS3 will without a doubt embarass xbox 36O. Sony is the true king of gaming consoles. The only reason microsoft is competing with sony is because they are so loaded with dough. Look at what happened to Nintendo when PS2 came out. Trust me, microsoft is just experimenting right now. Sony will always be one step ahead of microsoft. The only negative to PS3 will be the price. Since PS3 software will be more advanced than xbox 360 software, it will cost more.

  86. rice said,

    I don’t know, i mean if Hugo Chavez desired to fledge a full scale attack on microsoft, then i think sony would physically and mentally bond with nintendo to create a major intron graphic processor made purely and solely out of processor microchips that send chemical messengers to the audio hardrive that can yield an extrordinary console that would mutilate gates any day. Think about it, the LAM bonding with the REM might shove electrons and cytoplasm into the biome and reindeer that fudge the system and force it to pledge allegience to Cambodia.

    ok guys lets really break it down here! does anybody really give a shit if ps graphics are a smidge better than x-box or if xbox has better online! look at it like this microsoft has been makeing computers for years now, so of corse there going to have better on-line there a fucking multi billion dollar computer giant, and sony might have better graphics, they have been doing this game consle thing longger. to the x-box gamers if x-box put there system out for 600$ you would have bought it, your an x-box fan. so when sony releases the ps3 all the ps gamers will by it, its preferance! and honestly none of the other shit matter’s it all comes down to quality! i went out spent 400 bucks on xbox360 the fucker crashed the first hour i had it the same with my xbox lasted 1 year!! microsoft may have had some type of marketing plan to kick there system out first but i fill they rushed it out
    and there system falling apart! its fucking joke!! now the same can be said about the ps2 there were disc read problems with it! but if you read the warning signs in the instruction book it told what and what not to do.. ps also stated that the ps3 was only made to last 2 years mine is still running!!! i’ve never had a problem with it! and has anybody brought into consideration that maybe sony was taking there time with there release to avoid recall!!!! microsoft should have thought about that! so as far as im concerned the xbox360 is being sold it was a waste of my money! i’ll invest in a ps3 sony has yet to let me down!!!!!

  95. max said,

    Microsoft sued over defective Xbox 360 consoles
    Dec 5, 2005 @ 9:26 pm · By Blake Hurley
    Filed under News · Deutsch

    A Chicago man has filed a class action suit in the state of Illinois against software giant Microsoft Corp for selling defective Xbox 360 consoles.

    The man who brought the claim, Robert Byers, believes that Microsoft rushed the launch of their new console in an effort to get a lead in the market over major rivals Sony and Nintendo.

    As a result, he says the Xbox 360 has been released with a design flaw that causes it to overheat and freeze up.

    Specifically, Byers alleges that the power supply and central processing unit in the Xbox 360 overheat, affecting heat-sensitive chips and causing the console to lock up.

    In the suit, Byers is seeking unspecified damages and expenses as well as the replacement or recall of all Xbox 360 consoles.

    Following the November 22 launch of the Xbox 360, reports immediately began to surface that some of the new machines were defective.

    Microsoft is yet to comment on the pending court case, however, following the Xbox 360 console’s release, Molly O’Donnell, senior manager of global Xbox public relations, responded to rumors of faulty consoles by telling Reuters that some cases had been reported.

    “We have received a few isolated reports of consoles not working as expected […] With any launch of this magnitude, you’re bound to see something happening,?

    she said.

    Whilst declining to give exact numbers, O’Donnell said the defective consoles represented a “very, very small fraction? of total units sold.

    Microsoft to release an extra 300,000 Xbox 360 consoles by Christmas
    Dec 16, 2005 @ 1:26 am · By Blake Hurley
    Filed under News · Deutsch

    American Technology Research analyst Paul-Jon McNealy expects Microsoft to release an extra 300,000 consoles to North America by Christmas.

    In his research notes, McNealy outlined the launch figures for the Xbox 360 and stated that Microsoft would struggle to achieve its initial goal of shipping between 1.5 and 1.8 million units worldwide by the end of December.

    “We believe that (Microsoft) has tried to keep expectations low for retailers this holiday with the hopes of over-delivering. We believe that over-delivering is unlikely at this point.?

    McNealy believes there were 300,000 to 400,000 units for the launch in North America, around 300,000 for the Europe and 100,000 for Japan. The total would be around 1 million Xbox 360 units if the predicted 300,000 consoles are included.

    The number is still well short of the expected 1.5 million, which means additional shipments would be needed before month’s end to reach their target.

    Microsoft is maintaining its pre-launch aim of selling 2.75 to 3 million Xbox 360 consoles in the first 90 days following its release, regardless of the current shortages in store. Senior manager of global Xbox public relations, Molly O’Donnell, said the company was firmly on track to reach its goal, but declined to comment on expected sales for the rest of the year.

    The news coincides with the release of the first independent figures regarding the launch performance of the Xbox 360 in North America. The NPD group, a sales and marketing information company, has revealed that there were 325,602 units sold by the end of November, down considerably on the 556,000 consoles sold by the original Xbox after a comparable time.

    While machine sales have started out lower, software sales were incredibly strong with 1.27 million units shipped alongside the Xbox 360 – representing a ratio of 3.9 units of software per console, as opposed to 2.4 for the original.

    Call of Duty 2 has proven to be the most popular title among gamers so far, with around a quarter of a million sales, which equates to about 77% of all Xbox 360s purchased

    Xbox 360 console set to raise gamers’ power bills
    Dec 5, 2005 @ 2:26 am · By Nicole Stiles
    Filed under News · Deutsch

    Microsoft’s new Xbox 360 console has been found to consume more than twice the amount of power of its predecessor, the original Xbox. In tests conducted by CNET, it was discovered that the Xbox 360 draws approximately 160 watts of power: more than double the 74 watts required by the original Xbox, and over three times the 50 watts consumed by Sony’s Playstation 2.

    It seems that the console’s large, heavy power supply is indicative of its large, heavy power requirements: according to figures given, the Xbox 360 consumes more power than most other audio-visual devices, with the exception of big-screen high-definition TVs.

    Gamers using the Xbox 360 for an average of 4 hours per day can expect to end up with an annual electricity bill of between US $10 and US $35 for the console alone, excluding the amount required to run devices connected to the console such as TVs, speakers, amplifiers and other home theater components.

    Those who enjoy gaming using a high-end gaming PC will be used to shelling out such amounts or more on electricity, given that high-powered gaming PCs consume more power than the Xbox 360.

    Since the Xbox 360 is the first of the next-generation consoles to be released, it remains to be seen how Sony’s Playstation 3 and Nintendo’s Revolution console will compare in terms of power efficiency.

    Microsoft set to lose $126 on each Xbox 360 console
    Nov 25, 2005 @ 1:13 am · By Nicole Stiles
    Filed under News, Console · Deutsch

    Microsoft looks set to lose at least $126 on each Xbox 360 Premium Pack sold, according to a report from technology analyst firm iSuppli. Based on iSuppli’s ‘teardown analysis’ of the Xbox 360, the console’s parts alone total $525, which is $126 more than the Premium Pack’s US retail price of $399.

    The actual cost of manufacturing each Xbox 360 console, however, is likely to be significantly higher than $525, since this figure doesn’t take into account the cost of assembling, packaging, distributing and marketing the consoles.

    The Xbox 360’s ATI graphics processing unit (GPU) and IBM PowerPC-based processor account for the most significant portion of the console’s hardware costs.

    The cost of these two key components is expected to decrease over the Xbox 360’s lifecycle as ATI and IBM improve manufacturing efficiency and production yields for the console’s GPU and processor.

    Despite these diminishing hardware costs, it appears unlikely that Microsoft will turn a profit on the Xbox 360 console itself.

    Rather, the software giant’s profit will come from software licensing royalties, third-party hardware royalties, Xbox Live subscriptions, and sales of Microsoft’s first-party Xbox 360 titles.

  105. jay said,

    rice what are you talking about, I own an Xbox 360 and I can tell you that is not the case for most of the games. By the way if you are not impressed with the graphics blame the game manufacturer not the system because the xbox 360 is not even close to being pushed to its limits. And prity much all of these game manufacturers make games for the Ps3. Rice i no it will be imposible to change your hype for sony but you should not talk down about another product just because you believe one product to be better than the other just by speculation. If you read this whole forum you will see the rest of my posts and see my defense on this topic. And hopefuly you will argue with me so i can answer some more qustions about both systems on what is actualy known about them. If you are saying xbox 360 is not next gen then i dont no what is. For right now the xbox 360 is outperforming almost all next gen pc rigs in Call of Duty with slightly better image quality. Dont believe me well you should just go to Gamespot and look up Call of Duty 2 for the hardware pc performance guide for Call of Duty 2. You will see here that 2 7800 GTX on Sli run Call of duty 2 with all settings on high run it at 55fps at a screen resolution of 1024X768. Stated by Infinity Ward ( the manufacturers of the game) that the xbox 360 is runing the game at default max settings at a resolution of 720p or in other words 1200X720 at a minimum of 60fps wich means the fps does not dip below 60fps at any point in the game. And by the way the Rsx graphics processor for the ps3 is a modified 7800 GTX graphics card with a clock frequensy of 550 mhz which does not give it close to double the gpu power of the original 7800 GTX with a clock speed of 430 mhz both with 24 pipelines. Another thing that is interesting is that the Ps3 reps at E3 boasted that the RSX is more powerful than 2 6800GTX on sli, but now it has been proven that the xbox 360 is superior to 2 7800GTX on sli , go figure. Call of Duty 2 uses arguably the second most demanding graphics engine on any game right now next to F.E.A.R. The xbox 360 uses the F.E.A.R. graphics engine in the game Condemed Criminal Origins wich i also own and runs extremely smooth. I hope i got my point across to all the people who have not decided what system to get that are concerned about the graphics.

  106. jay said,

    I also forgot to talk about the graphics in Project Gotham Racing 3, to me they are superior to any game including fear, but there is no way to compare it to any other game because they made there own graphics engine and the game is only released for the xbox 360, if you ever play it go into cockpit mode and you will see dirt smudges on the windows, refractions of light in the front window and can even see reflecions of the other drivers head lights in the front window. Then there is the damage to the side mirrors which is amazing, the mirrior brakes up into hundreds of little pieces and reflects everything off of that realisticly. Thats not even mentioning the amazing graphics detail inside and out of the cars. Oh and i almost forgot the enviroment such as the road sky building and trees are so close to being photo realistic. Tell me rice how is that not next gen, i own a xbox and ps2 and they could never come a fraction close to the graphics of Project Gotham Racing 3. An interesting fact, there is more polgons in one of Project Gotham Racing 3’s bridges than all of project gotham racing 2. This fact was said by bizzare creations, the creators of the project gotham series. Also before anyone who should judge an xbox360 games graphics should play it on a high definition tv because that can make a hell of a difference for most games. Rice i think you will be sadly disapointed with the ps3’s graphics if you are expecting so much more from the ps3 because it just will not happen, This is next gen graphics acept it or not but if the ps3 is some how magicly more graphicly powerful it will not make much of a difference at all. These are next gen graphics but you can expect better improvements on the graphics of all the next gen sytems as time goes on because of more efitient and more powerful graphics engines are released with the games. That is exactly what happened with the current gen systems, look at the console release games and look at the current gen games coming out now, it is an amazing difference.

    quoted from CAboose “the PS3 is going to be around $300 if you pre-order it or get it right when it comes out but even if its expensive i would rather have it than the xbox 360. The 360 was rushed and has alought of problems, its not backward compatible, it freezes up, and it over heats!”

    how the hell do you know?your like every other sony person,the PS3 is not even close to being finished but you state it will be $300 if you pre order it.your scared are’nt you?scared that the price is going to be higher so you have to tell your self that? pack your crack pipe some more!!!

    Hey jay, your xbox 360 must not be that great, because you feel you have to defend it with all the crap you write on this sight. If your 360 was all that great, you would be playing it instead of bullshiting it on this sight. I played xbox 360, and it is a total waste of money. In addition all the accessories for the 360 are way overpriced. For example, $50 for a wirless controller; yeah right microsoft, kiss my ass.

    by the way jay, xbox 360 is bad and a major waste of money. Get a life!!!
    Get slapped back into reality from googoo land and do something
    constructive.
    same with velocity, who has major speaking impairments that are very offensive on many levels. go buy an xbox360 and enjoy what you wasted your money on, i really don’t give a crap.

  113. max said,

    to rice:
    dont take this the wrong way but if you dont and i quote ”i really don’t give a crap” unquote, then why are you here? or are you just telling him that because he is possibly too obsesed with the xbox 360?

  114. rice said,

    i believe he is a little obsessed, and i really don’t know why i am here. i guess i just have no potential social life whatsoever. you may call me a sycotic women, though i am really a man

  115. jay said,

    hey jordan i do play my xbox 360 a hell of alot but my life is not xbox 360 i like to do lots of other things or i get board, fuck you cant have sex 24/7 and still have it enjoyable. And realy i dont look at my posts as defending the xbox 360 i look at them as more of informing people that do not no the real non biased facts about the graphics, hey and jordan by the way feel free to point out anything in my posts that you think is a lie and i will tell you were i have found and researched this information, and realy you dont need to do alot of searching if you go to non byased sites like i did. but im sure you wont anyways because you propably have made your mind already in which system you think is better. And this is for rice the reson i am obsessed with the xbox 360 is because its fuckin fun. Some of you guys realy got to grow up, i have not dissed the ps3 in any of my posts, and why is this is because the ps3 is going to be a good product to i just believe from my research that the xbox 360 will have better graphics in the long run and better online surveses. The ps3 is going to have some realy sweet games, hopefuly Final Fantasy 7, hell i might even get one when i can fit it into my budget. I dont no about you bet when i ever by somthing expensive i reasearch it extensively, that might be the reason i no so much about the xbox 360 and the ps3.

  116. dosn't matter said,

    Okay, first can we all please use proper english. No “me like PS3”

    Second the only good thing about the PS3 is that when you throw the controller because you realize you wasted your money it comes back to you.

  117. jay said,

    Hey rice dont be such a hypocrite you are obviously obsessed with the ps3 always talking down about the xbox 360 by saying how much better the ps3 is than it even though you are realy incapable of giving a non biased post. Just think about this rice, you are obsessed about a product that is not even out yet and realy have no clue what it is actualy going to be like when it is released because of a lack of research easibly seen in your posts.

  118. m-man said,

    i just wish that ps3 fanboys would back up what they say with some actual facts, like we do. none of this ” ps3 is better, dee da dee” i will admit, i was an ps3 fanboy, until i did my homework. One more thing, just because people say that they bought an xbox 360 and it stopped working dosent mean they actualy did. One more thing, xbox 360 = America Sony = Japan i leave you with this. mistro, please, “i am proud to be an American!…….”

  119. D said,

    -ok max point taken, but give me your opinon on this seriously. you stated on this blog that an xbox 360 costs microsoft about 530$ to make and there selling for 399$ ?hhmm why is this, do think its possible that microsoft is slowly falling apart and is trying to low ball sony to cripple there sales and possibly take them out of the game? if the ps3 was to fail it would cripple the corp. possibly put them out. leaving the field open to microsoft, its all they have left. (risky) watching sony over the years they have become quite large they launched there new computer systems, they have quite alot going for them, do thing it possible that gates is scared and pushed a risky call to rush out the 360 and low ball sony. the way i look at it the only thing microsft has going for them is the op’s programs well and now the 360, but honestly if you go out to by a computer your not going to by a gateway! microsoft is losing it and there now trying to push a new line to save there ass!! this usumption is based off of what you wrote, but if im write and sony kicks ass with there release i bet we see microsoft file in the next couple of years!

    but like i said just a thought looking for an opinion!

  120. spiegel said,

    I have read most of the post here talking about which is better, which has the better graphics, etc.

    First the issue of the Dreamcast… it was indeed better than the PS2 as far as graphics. its down fall was lack of software(content) support.

    The Xbox came out after the PS2 at a time when no one had ever thought of using a PC base GPU. Basically the Xbox was a low end Dell PC. Yet there are games for the PS2 that graphically look great.

    As far as next generation systems the Xbox 360 can out put 720p but would need to use more than on disc per game to fit all of the data. That is why sony is using Blue-ray because it holds more since they are outing at 1080p. why is this important… In Japan everything is in HD!!!!!!! and has been for years!!!!! If next generation is just graphics that buy a High end PC but PC don’t have the content support. Next generation is improved gameplay and nothing more.

    Sony will win because of its fan base plus because of what it has to offer to the HD world a true HD player (Blue-ray). And since they are still putting out PS2 games its win win. They will make up the loss in game sales for the old system.

    MS is the rome empire… think about that?

    Patience 360: Ten Reasons to Wait for PS3
    Don’t rush out to the stores just yet! You may want to save some money and we’ll tell you how.
    by Jeremy Dunham, Chris Roper, Ivan Sulic
    November 21, 2005 – Unless you’re the type of gamer who enjoys playing his wares under a rock, then you no doubt know by now that this week marks the official launch for Microsoft’s Xbox 360. Several years in the making, the brand new hardware from Gates ‘N Company has been receiving plenty of consumer hype in the past few weeks and has been heralded by some as THE big system watch in the upcoming next-generation console wars.

    We’re here to tell you that they’re wrong.

    Now don’t misunderstand us, we’ll be the first to concede that the Xbox 360 is certainly an impressive system with plenty of positives to keep its customers happy. But if you’re a fan of high-definition technology, enjoy playing more games than the “other guy,” and want to get the most possible bang for your buck, then Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation 3 will definitely be the system for you.

    Listed below in descending order are the top ten reasons your faithful editors on the IGN PlayStation team think you should wait until next year to make your first next-generation upgrade. And while we absolutely came up with more reasons to ward you off than those listed below, these were the selections that we felt stood out most. Sony fans, this article is dedicated to you so without any further ado, we present to you the Top 10 Reasons to Wait for PS3!

    Reason #10: Xbox 360 Doesn’t Have a Killer App
    360’s launch lineup is admirable; there are 18 games and five first-person shooters. It can even be argued that the 360’s overall average quality of titles is greater than that of previous systems. And yet not a single game is Killer App worthy? Where’s the Halo? Where’s the Mario? Where’s the Soul Calibur? Where’s the frickin’ interest?

    It’s true, though. PS2 launched with a sorry lot of games and PSOne featured a similarly disgraceful lineup, but with the advent of PS3, Microsoft may have wished it more heavily emphasized one game its new console could forever be known for. This is because PS3 has the Metal Gear potential, Warhawk, Tekken, I-8, Gran Turismo, Killzone, and a dozen other high profile games that may hit day one to put a smiling face to the splendid PlayStation name. And when you can associate Dante with PS3, will anything else matter?

    Reason #9: Dual-Screen and 1080p Support
    1080p! Sweet Marie! Even if most televisions don’t support it, why limit yourself to interlaced images when you can experience the glory of 1080 progressive? Support is for the weak! PS3 is forward looking, if anything. This means when you invest in the ultimate display technology however many years down the road, PS3 will make good on your purchase by outputting the absolute best image available on the market. And according to boastful Sony reps, we’ll see games running at 120fps, too.

    The Dual-Screen support also adds some interesting 3D potential. Layering images is a great way to fake depth. But if Killzone in full 3D isn’t your cup of tea, maybe panoramic F1 racing will be? The option is certainly there. If the next Ace Combat doesn’t feature dual screen-in cockpit support, we know it at least could have if it wanted to. Boo-yah, 360. Where your 720p now?

    Reason #8: Hefty Expandability / Connectivity Options
    Have expansion, will travel. The best way to maximize a console’s lifespan is by lining it with a thousand ports and interfaces of every type. In this way PS3 has expandability written all over it. Compact Flash, SD Card, Memory Stick, Blue Tooth, USB 2.0… If Sony ever wants to add-on, it need not limit itself to one standard. And if you ever want to jam something into your PS3, chances are you’ll be able to, assuming it’s not toast.

    Moreover, PS3 will also be intimately familiar with the PSP, meaning cross-platform associations will be all over the place. Expect PS3 games to take full advantage of the little PlayStation Portable by offering unlockable content and new multiplayer possibilities. What if a PSP player could control Otacon’s droid in the next MGS? Whoops!

    Reason #7: You Can Still Pre-Order
    It seems to happen during every system launch, but nobody ever learns their lesson. In the rush to be the first on the block to own a brand new console, mobs of people invade their local retailers while forming lines larger than what you’d see during Fourth of July weekend at Disneyland. It gets even worse once you’re inside the store — as people hurry to the videogame section eager to snatch up whatever overpriced bundle pack they can, so that the managers who decided to throw the promotion together can milk every last penny out of your paper route.

    This can be avoided, however, if you just plunk down fifty or so bucks a few months ahead of time. All you have to do in this scenario is walk right into your retailer of choice, pay of the remainder of the balance and go home with a smile on your face. With a release date of just under a year away, the PS3 still lets you do this. The Xbox 360, on the other hand, does not.

    Reason #6: Seven-Player Wireless Support
    While being able to play with six of your buddies offline in addition to playing with a single system will only be appealing for a small number of genres, it can be especially important for sports games in particular. Being able to populate an NBA or NHL team entirely with human players is something that isn’t possible on any system outside of the PlayStation line, and the PS3 will keep with this trend.

    If you’ve ever played through a season of your favorite sports game with each of your buddies taking control of a single player for the season, you know how rewarding and fun this sort of setup can be. Again, it’s only possible on a Sony system, and in the next-generation the only place to find multiplayer support of this kind will be on the PlayStation 3.

    Reason #5: The HD IP Camera
    The EyeToy is one of the all-time most successful peripherals released for a console for a number of reasons — the biggest being that it works phenomenally well in its simplicity. The PlayStation 3 will see the release of the HD IP camera, which we’ll assume will be called the EyeToy 2, or at least something that sounds a little more consumer-friendly.

    The camera features a native HD resolution, allowing you to transmit crystal-clear images to the PS3 for online play and more. And with the increased resolution and the PS3’s processing power, the camera will allow for even more advanced, yet natural, input with the system. Take that, Microsoft and Nintendo! Plus, being that it’s IP-based, the camera’s functionality ties directly into Internet use, allowing you to transmit feeds over the Intarweb with ease.

    Reason #4: Full Backwards Compatibility
    360 will let you play Halo and whatever other games Microsoft chooses to eventually support, but Sony has the PSOne and PS2 library covered, save for a few minor exceptions. Imagine booting up Tobal No. 1 just because you feel like it or taking on Shattered Soldier because you haven’t gotten your ass kicked enough lately. That’s what PS3 can do for you.

    The coolest part is that PS3 may also be able to enhance the older games. Much in the same way PS2 improved PSOne games with better texture filters and enhanced load times, we expect PS3 games to add even better texture filtering, quicker loads, full scene anti-aliasing graphics and goodness knows what else.

    Reason #3: Stronger Japanese Developer Support
    One of the PlayStation 2’s most powerful allies in the current-gen console wars was its strong relationship with fan favorite Japanese developers. Square Enix, Konami, Capcom, Bandai, Atlus, Nippon Ichi, and Namco (among others) each offered unique content for Sony’s system that you weren’t going to find anywhere else. Tekken, Final Fantasy, Ace Combat, Devil May Cry, and a host of other games are just a few examples of this successful relationship… and none of them ever came out for the Xbox.

    More importantly, though, the companies above supported the PS2 more heavily than they did other systems as a general rule — and when you consider that all of the above names have already signed on for one or more projects in the first year of PlayStation 3 alone, that support is obviously going to continue. In fact, nearly 100 games were already announced by Japanese studios at or around this year’s Tokyo Game Show — which exponentially more than the confirmed Japanese titles available for the 360. And let us not forget that Sony’s own internal Japanese studio isn’t too bad itself.

    Reason #2: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
    Remember when we said that the Xbox 360 doesn’t have a killer app yet? Well the PlayStation 3’s Metal Gear Solid 4 is definitely a killer app. Game creator Hideo Kojima has shown time and time again that he knows how to craft an excellent videogame, and after witnessing the impressive real-time demonstration of Guns of the Patriots (and its accompanying trailer) at TGS this past September, we’re already convinced that the PS3 will be capable of some amazing things. A great pedigree plus great technology? Sounds good to us!

    Reason #1: The Blu-ray Player
    Sony and Company’s next-generation disc format has yet to see the light of day in its final form, but the pure technology behind the format is immensely promising from both a gaming and general entertainment standpoint. We’re talking 50GB+ of storage space here, more than 5x the space than the 360’s DVD format can muster.

    More storage space means more room for content which helps widen the possibilities of the PS3’s power. Who needs a next-gen system if you run out of content space on your media (and keep in mind, Microsoft has no plans to incorporate HD-DVD or anything like it)? Blu-ray’s transfer rate is also quite quick, and though the PS3’s actual drive speed hasn’t yet been announced, speedy load times should be on the horizon. And with all of the studio support that the Blu-ray Disc Association has garnered, it’s sure to be one hell of a next-gen home video format. In short, the PlayStation 3 will have the most advanced storage medium of any game system on the planet.

    happy, i contributed. now stfu.

    hey velocity, good for you. i don’t care.

    This is where i got my info from if you wish to visit this site then go to

  126. rice said,

    i like your site because it makes fun of the xbox 360 in many ways.

  127. rice said,

    the ps3 looks like a george foreman grill, and the xbox 360 is racist.

  128. MAX - IN MY ASS said,

    Hello you fucked up person!

    How can you even think that 360 is better than ps3?
    Ps3 beat’s 360 maaany times over and over!
    And, yes! they will need 54GB discs.. 50 GB of DETAILS.. “Details” is a word that xbox never heard of.. and 360 can prove that!
    SCEA is smart compare to Microsoft.. Ps3 got Bluray and 3 or even 4 times better gpu than 360!

    and the Cell.. yes, it will maybe be 4.0 GHz (not 3.2) so, 4.0 x 7 (cores) will be like 2.8 TERAFLOPS :P the 360 got like.. 0.000001 huh? or no, thats WAY to much! sorry :P

    the 360 is a piece of SHIT compare to Sony’s Supercomputer PS3!

    Dont even dare to say that xbox 360 is better, beacuse it is’nt! read the facts bitch! bye

  129. dosn't matter said,

    First of all rice that is the biggest load of crap fanboy article ever.

    and to the guy who just posted, u have just proved to us all that u have no clue what ur talking about.

  130. MAX - Fuck Off said,

    And BTW, Halo for Xbox is just another shitty FPS game! its boring (the first 5 min is fun) Killzone for ps3 will be much MUCH more popular :P no doubt!

    Sony started at 1994 and the PSX came out with many gr8 titles that Nintendo couldnt beat! Just to name some : Gran Turismo, Crash (the fox or what he is :)
    and Final Fantasy (FF7) those games got better in speed and detail in ps2.. even if Sony’s Playstation2’s “Emotion Engine” (400mhz) wasnt best the games was better anyway!

    And now for Ps3 the games will be awsome (the Xbox360 is just another standard computer with graphic like my Nvidia GeForce 440 MX) LOL!!
    anyway, the Ps3 will have TWO gpu’s.. i guess it wont be 2 of Nvidia GeForce 7800GT. Nvidia will create a better graphic card, and that will ps3 use!
    maybe Nvidia Geforce 9800? who knows!

    I dont even have to mention the Processor, its too embarrassing for the 360 :P

    Ps3 have gr8 titles – 360 have just some wierd psycho games
    Ps3 got better (MUCH BETTER) Graphic – 360 is ps2 graphic ;P
    Ps3 got the next-gen disc Bluray – 360 have DVD.. LOOOOL
    Ps3 is like.. 6 or 7 times faster – 360 is slow as hell
    Ps3 will be hard to crack :P – 360 is ALLREADY cracked, HAHAHA

    As the scores say Playstation3 is the winner this time (TOO)
    If you dont agree, then READ goddamn it, READ!!
    May Xbox burn in heaven! (the hell is for me, its hot and nice there)

    an exerpt from a BBC article:
    “The PlayStation 3 is expected in 2006, while Toshiba plans to incorporate it into high-end televisions next year.

    IBM has said it will sell a workstation with the chip starting later this year. ”

    Why get a ps3 when u can get a computer with actual good games?

    And to all those PS3 fans out there i have a word and a number for u :
    Halo 3

  132. MAX - Fuck Off said,

    Yeah, Halo 3.. the worst fps game ever!

  133. dosn't matter said,

    yea crash must be a great game seeing as how u dont know what he is seeing how its in the fucking title(Bandicoot)

  134. MAX - Fuck Off said,

    Yeah, so.. hes a fucking thing ;P but the game is fun ;)

    and btw im from Sweden so i dont know all english ^^

  135. dosn't matter said,

    hey max in my ass, by the way the ps3 will supposedly have 256 Gigaflops(thats.25 tera flops) We alredy know the xbox 360 has about 115 gigaflops…not quite the ratio u suggested(2.8 to 0.000001?)

    Next, killzone was the most overhyped game ever halo-killer my ass
    and killzone 2 will be just as bad. that game has the most retarded AI ever(bar none)

    And the PS2 processor was 300Mhz not 400.

  136. dosn't matter said,

    and the ps3 will not have some 9800 shit.
    At E3 they anounced it would run a bit Better than 2 6800 ultras.(the what 5th best card on the market?)

  137. dosn't matter said,

    and sli dosent double performance, it just slightley increases it

  138. Nascar and PS3 what a team said,

    PS3 is going to be so much better than the Xbox 360. I have a 360 and a PS2 and I like the PS2’s performance better. Sure the graphics are not as good but it is so much easier to use.The 360’s controlers are the size of a football.The buttons are scattered all over the controler. The PS2 and PS3’s controlers are comformed to your hands.For all the folks at Microsoft, you made a good system but the Sony guys sure know what they are doing!

  139. jay said,

    sli gives a 70 % performance boost in Call of duty 2

  140. dosn't matter said,

    Actually i would argue that the ps3 crontroller is th worst on the market, its just not that comfortable

  141. jay said,

    so basicly the power of 1.7 7800GTX

  142. dosn't matter said,

    no it dosent

  143. dosn't matter said,

    6800 not 7800

  144. rice said,

    to dosn’t matter:

    i think that you need to wait and see how good the ps3 will be compared to the xbox 360 when it comes out. You can’t make up all of these specs. until you actually know. Even you said “supposedly”, so you have to doubt yourself. Sink it into your head that the ps3 will be better though, because xbox employs poor children in china who work for 3 yen an hour and must eat their own feces to survive.

  145. Nascar and PS3 what a team said,

    How would you know what a PS3 controler feels like? Are you a special person who gets things that are in the making?

  146. dosn't matter said,

    i know the ps3 will be better in hardware specs i just fuking addmitted that.
    …and feces dont taste that bad

  147. rice said,

    to dosn’t matter

    xbox 360 wireless controlers have this fat box on the back where batteries go, making it look stupid and feel uncomfortable. the ps3 wireless controller battery packs are built right in, so it is comfortable and looks cool.

  148. dosn't matter said,

    I SAID FUKING PS2 FUCKTARD

  149. dosn't matter said,

    or i ment to

  150. dosn't matter said,

    it just looks like there gonna slip out of ur hands

  151. rice said,

    to dosn’t matter;

    your comments are very offensive to me. you must be stupid. you obviously cannot talk like an intelligent person, and consequently (this is a big word, so i will define it for you: Pronunciation: ‘kän(t)-s&-“kwent-lE, -si-kw&nt-
    Function: adverb
    : as a result : in view of the foregoing : ACCORDINGLY , you have no clue what you are talking about.

  152. dosn't matter has changed his nam to arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    fuikn boomerang

  153. rice said,

    revolution will suck.

  154. Nascar and PS3 what a team said,

    I love the PS2 controler! It is very comfortable! My thumb only gets sore because the Nascar games require the “X” button to be held down 100% of the time! Can you dig that plate of rice?

  155. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    and to whoever said nintendo sucks the revolution will actually be quite good

  156. Nascar and PS3 what a team said,

    or arghhhh, sorry rice!

  157. rice said,

    because you like to swear excessivly, anf therefore you must be quite unintelligent indeed

  158. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    please define how i have no clue what im talking about

  159. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    thats cause u all piss me of with ur stupid fanboyness

  160. rice said,

    sorry, but that, regaurdless of what you speak of, fails to alter in any way the inevidible fact that you percieve to me to be a very careless person indeed.

  161. rice said,

    well then, maybe you should continue to speak that way and mature a little!

  162. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    actually if u look at my first few posts i did not swear and spoke quite intelligently

  163. rice said,

    i don’t know, in fact, i was wondering the same

  164. rice said,

    I don’t know, i mean if Hugo Chavez desired to fledge a full scale attack on microsoft, then i think sony would physically and mentally bond with nintendo to create a major intron graphic processor made purely and solely out of processor microchips that send chemical messengers to the audio hardrive that can yield an extrordinary console that would mutilate gates any day. Think about it, the LAM bonding with the REM might shove electrons and cytoplasm into the biome and reindeer that fudge the system and force it to pledge allegience to Cambodia. THANK YOU Melvin Gabrielle! You are a genius when it comes to discovering the perfect gaming console.

  165. rice said,

    i know that made no sense

  166. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    how do u get ur posts above mine even though u posted later?

  167. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    lol

  168. rice said,

    Hugo Chavez is the beloved dictator of Venezuela, by the way

  169. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    thats the only way i would ever buy a sony console

  170. rice said,

    i guess.

  171. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    are we the only 2 on?

  172. rice said,

    Have you ever read a book called the Angry Moon? it is a silly little child’s book, but it is very funny indeed. You should read it.

  173. The boss is on as well :D do you want me to open a chat for the blog?

    (ps3 naturally, or I wouldn’t blog about it :)

  174. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    Shame on u Gamer,Shame on u

  175. rice said,

    I would only buy an xbox 360 to use as a foot warmer because it expends a lot of energy.

  176. arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh said,

    i like counter strike source

    i don’t give a shit about all of your comments. i have a 360 and it kicks ass. i’m sure the ps3 will too. But i’m hooked on the US product now.

    Before you choose a system though, look at the games. Xbox 360= Halo 3, Madden ’06, Perfect Dark Zero. Ps3= Kill Zone 2,?

    So far, the 360 is better.

  185. your cat said,

    The xbox 360 generates so much heat it could be an ass warmer for people travelling in snow.

    Dont get me wrong though, i love the 360.

  186. D said,

    John madden- are you serious! all you’ve got to throught out is halo, and madden 06, your kidding me right! sony already has 100 games listed to be released some to be mentioned, devil may cry, fight night, tekken, metal gear solid, resident evil 5, castlevania, brothers in arms, an thats just grazing the top! just cause the only screen shots you’ve seen are for kill zone dosent mean thats the only game thats being released, just f.y.i.

    The ps3 will not have graphic like 6800.. :P the ps3 will come out in spring (as ken kutaragi says) and then Nvidia will create a BETTER graphiccard than the new Nvidia GeForce 7800GTX, so ps3 will use 2 gpu’s that IS BETTER than geforce 7800GTX :P and, NOO, they didnt say ANYTHING about that shitty gpu on E3, i have seen the 2hour long movie about ps3 4 or 5 times in a row :P
    So fuck off and just accept that Ps3 ARE kings and that they also will rule the market AGAIN! Sony is smart compare to Microsoft! And the controller will be much MUCH more comfortable than the UGLY (LOL) shitty and fucked up xbox controller :P

    Well D, you’re right. I was talking about good games, not pieces of shit, like….. castlevania! Sure, the ps3 has more games, most of them best sellers, or whatever ya call ’em, but xbox 360 has online for its great games. Beat that. Plus, tell your mom thanks for the sack tilckle last night.

    ps3 doesnt even have a hard drive. no new downloadable levels, new maps, weapons, players, updated rosters, things xbox live users could not go on without. its online capabilities are going to suffer tremendously, and so will your wallet when you have to buy pricy memory cards. high def era without even a hard drive? good luck with that.

    Smith should have been showered with glory. Instead, he found himself in debtors’ prison. To some extent, this was his own fault. After choosing the financially precarious life of a freelancer, he purchased homes well beyond his means. He took a young wife who suffered from a variety of physical and mental illnesses. He also took in his nephew John Phillips who would later become an outstanding paleontologist but who was, at the time, a financial burden. Phillips later lamented, “Would that . . . he had left to others the completion of his work, and devoted himself for a time to even the humblest of those professional labours by which he had been at least supported [and not] in following up discoveries which no living man could reasonably hope to complete!” Yet Smith’s financial ruin was also the result of something he couldn’t control: his l

    xbox 360 is an xbox with slighty better graphics (in others words, horseshit)

    ps3 will have way better graphics than ps2 and will achieve a level of entertainment never seen before. I heard that there may even be a slot to insert psp games, which will become conversed to hd quality and played in fullscreen on your monitor. In addition, it may even have an HDMI output for the highest quality picture possible! These features are not yet official, but would definitely blow away the xbox, thats for sure.

    Sony super fuel cell film

    More good news for those of us still waiting for practical fuel cells for our gadgets; Sony has developed a new technology that it says could help produce the world’s most efficient DMFC (direct methanol fuel cell) yet.

    While a prototype won’t be coming until next year, Sony has developed a film that uses buckyballs (Fullerenes) that should help fuel cells reach a power density of about 100 milliwatt-hours per square centimeter. Full details after the jump.

    The formula Sony has developed uses the buckyballs arranged in clumps of eight. Sony is mixing them in a polymer to form a barrier that makes for thinner membranes. The goo helps stop the penetration of oxygen across the fuel cell’s membrane and stops methanol leakage, which in turn boosts the power density…or so the Sony boffins say.

    The company is understandably cautious about when it can start making DMFCs and won’t say how long its going to be before the film slips into DMFCs and the DFMCs slip into products. But, according to Sony’s Yuriko Nakatani, the technology looks like a significant step in the right direction toward the development of DMFCs powerful enough to supplement or replace lithium batteries for handheld gadgets.

    Methanol leakage and power output have been the devilish details that have stopped DMFCs becoming widespread, along with regulations that are still being hammered out to allow methanol to be carried aboard passenger aircraft, and a methanol fuel infrastructure, i.e. being able to pick up refills at Japan’s ubiquitous konbini (convenience stores) for example.

    Breakthroughs with DMFCs are announced regularly in Japan, Canon being the most recent. A number of companies have announced advances with DMFCs for portable gadgets, particularly Hitachi, Toshiba and Fujitsu. This year’s CEATEC show, as we highlighted before, demonstrated that progress continues to be made.

    The flip side of this is that while there have been lots of claims of breakthroughs and almost as many delays in commercialization. A few years back NEC claimed it had reached a then-highest power density of 100 milliwatts per square centimeter using an exotic DMFC design based on the company’s carbon nanohorn technology, but had to pull back from its goal of commercializing the technology.

    Sony believes that 100 milliwatts is the start line for power density but others, notably the boffins at NTT think this is far too low. The bottom line is we don’t expect miracle battery replacements from Sony soon, but we are glad to see that it is finally taking the wraps of its stealth DMFC development program and working toward fuel cells that, we hope, should prolong our digital gadget joy…

    Playstation 3 to be more power-efficient than Xbox 360: Cell chip’s consumption reduced by 40%Dec 8, 2005 @ 3:25 am · By Nicole Stiles · Filed under Playstation 3 News

    Power consumption of the Playstation 3’s Cell processor may be reduced by up to 40%, thanks to new technologies developed by IBM and AMD.

    IBM and AMD have employed two different techniques which fall into a category known as ’silicon straining’. Essentially, these techniques allow electrons to travel faster, thereby reducing a chip’s power requirements without sacrificing chip performance.

    Incorporating these techniques into the Cell processor could potentially reduce its power requirements by 40%, and may in turn decrease the PS3’s heat output, thus reducing the likelihood of the console overheating.

    Xbox 360 users, on the other hand, have already reported problems with the console overheating and consequent system freezes, along with loud fan noise, and the Xbox 360’s power consumption has been measured at a hefty 160 watts.

    IBM and AMD have also announced that Cell chips using silicon straining will be manufactured in the latter half of 2006, and that this next generation of chips will use a 65-nanometer process, as opposed to the current 90-nanometer process.

    Using a 65-nanometer process will reduce the chip’s surface area, bring the Cell chip one step closer to realizing Sony president Ken Kutaragi’s vision of Cell-powered mobile devices.

    In an interview with 1up.com, Hideo Kojima (the creator of the popular Metal Gear Solid series) mentioned that it was technically possible for Metal Gear Solid 4 to run on Xbox 360 hardware. He also stated that they chose the Playstation 3 hardware to run the MGS4 trailer was merely because it was ‘newer’ and they wanted to try it out first. Kojima also said that there weren’t ANY REAL DIFFERENCES between PS3, PC and Xbox 360.

    i was playing xbox360 today and even the graphics sucked. it is a bad console indeed. go spend your money on something worth it (aka. not xbox360 because it really blows). ps3 graphics are going to be lifelike, as opposed to the xbox360 graphics which appeared square and anything but 360.

    I think its poetic Justice. While being a fanboy for xbox which was the more powerful system vs the PS2, I could never combat the arguments that PS2 used over Xbox IE controller, better games, lower price point , bigger installed user game base, and so on. Now Microsoft turned the tables on Sony using those same arguments against the PS3. I think xbox360 did their homework this time around, the system is absolutely a pleasure, combined with Xbox live which is going to be a media center marketplace to be reckoned with, to go alone with a fantastically designed controller, to go along with connectivity with Windows XP and soon to be Vista, and all this at a significantally lower price point, I think it spells victory for xbox360. Japan will even the score for PS3, but all in all I think this time around Microsoft should be commended for their overall approach.

    xbox 360 sucks, go up to something real close in any game, wether it be a racing game or shooting game, and you’ll notice it to be all pixelly. ps3 will not look that way. i hate my xbox 360, and it was a huge waste of money. very disappointed, i am.

  262. John Madden said,

    I dont care about either console. Their both too expensve to buy at release. Wait for ’07 and get both of them for about the price of a PS3 at launch. I have a 360 and never get tired of it. Though the PS3 will be better.

    Just so y’all know, i’m switching from ABC to ESPN.

    But you gotta admit though that the sleek design of the 360 is way better looking than that of the PS3.(I still think the 360 is better).

    i like my ipod better, for it is really cool and holds many songs indeed. the xbox360 looks like a piece of s**t painted white because gates is racist, and the ps3 looks like a wicked cool george foreman grill and is colored grey to incorporate every race

  268. taekwondo said,

    1st off playstation 3 is not way more powerful than the 360 both systems are very powerful. The xbox 360 can process far beyond any current game out there in graphics. The playstation 3 can to this round graphics will be astounding on both consoles. Honestly you wont see mutch of a difference between the two both will look amazing. The main deal for me this round is pricing and if playstation 3 is gonna cost over 500 bucks its to mutch money for me to spend. The xbox 360 is 300 and 400 with hardrive, head set and wireless controller and a dvd remote thats a good deal. The playstation will be over 500 bucks with no special extras and graphicly no big difference between them. The revolution prolly has the worst controller design ive ever seen it looks like a remote no gamer will be used to sutch a change poor move by nintendo. So for the money and graphics and a very nice line up of games and controller design i think xbox 360 is the better deal. The playstation 3 will be awsome but besides gran turismo tekken and a small handfull of titals theres no big difference in games specialy now that xbox will have finale fantasy. So knowing that why pay for a overpriced system or a system with the crapiest controler ever when you can buy a very nice system thats out in stores now for a decent normal console pricetag. The xbox 360 :)

  269. taekwondo said,

    Doing research xbox 360 and playstation 3 are very close in power in floating point performance playstation 3 is ahead but in total system output for actual graphics there very close some points xbox is higher others playstaion is so why pay over 100 bucks more for somthing that you wont see any change in visuals on ? Both consoles are powerful enough for almost limitless realism and you cant judge the 360s graphics till later half its titals were gonna be on xbox 1 not on 360 so they were rushed and just barley modified for 360s power. So wait till later to see what it can do you havnt seen anything yet . The fact is the whole 2 teraflops to 1 =teraflops thing is stupid it doest mean ps3 is twice as powerful. The fact is sony likes to put up big number like when they said ps2 could push 60 million polys a second. The system can only push 13.4 million transformed and lit for actual graphics though same concept with the two teraflops thing. They are both very close in power mainly because xbox has the lead on memory bandwidth and it can push oput its full teraflop of processing power when ps3 is bottleknecked in a way. So why pay 100 bucks more for somthing thats not any better amd realy not mutch different.

    xbox 360 is a lot of fun and i am sure ps3 will be just as good and probably better. who cares how much the systems cost, i will pay whatever they make me pay cause video games kick ass. except for nintendo; nintendo game systems totally suck now.

  273. tired of the fighting said,

    taekwondo, how do you know its going to be 100 bucks more? I’ve read reports that the PS3 will sell for 400 and sony will have to lose money on them for awhile. The fact is nobody knows. the systems are both very similar but it all comes down to the games and sony has always had the better games IMHO.

  274. tired of the fighting said,

    although MS is doing better with their games, like they have gotten square-enix to jump on board, and of course there’s always halo to fall back on. but they’ve also lost some of their exclusives too, like how the new ninja gaiden will be on ps3.

    Is the XWand the Revolutionary Xbox 360 Controller?

    By: Richard Allen

    It appears Nintendo and Sony aren’t the only industry leaders working on a true 3D controller. Microsoft has a working proto type for the “XWand”. This interesting device seems to serve a more general audience with applications for more of an everyday use.

    Here is a quote from the Microsoft Research site that explains the technology:

    “The XWand is a novel wireless sensor package that enables styles of natural interaction with intelligent environments. For example, a user may point the wand at a device and control it using simple gestures. The XWand system leverages the intelligence of the ubiquitous computing environment to best determine the user’s intention.

    Work on the XWand can be divided into two broad categories: the design of the hardware device, and the design of the user experience and software system that uses the hardware device. Prototypes of both halves of the system have been developed.

    Hardware device

    The XWand hardware device includes a custom printed circuit board (PCB) with a variety of off-the-shelf sensors, including a 3-axis magnetometer, a 2-axis MEMS accelerometer, and a 1-axis piezoelectric gyroscope. The output of these sensors is collected and formatted by an onboard PIC microcontroller and passed to a 418MHz FM transceiver. A base station (not shown) receives data packets from the wand at about 50Hz, and passes the sensor readings to the host PC via RS-232. The wand also has 2 visible LEDs for feedback, a pushbutton for user input, and two IR LEDs for position tracking.

    The magnetometer and accelerometer readings may be combined on the host side to obtain the true 3d orientation of the wand with respect to the room.

    The IR LEDs support 3d tracking via external cameras. The PIC is programmed to flash the IR LEDs at a predefined rate, such that simple image processing software on the host PC can recover the 2d position of the wand in each camera view. This 2d information from multiple cameras is combined to find the 3d position of the IR LEDs.

    The RF part on the wand may send as well as receive data. Presently the wand uses a call/response protocol, in which the host PC sends a request for data, and the wand sends a data packet back. The bi-directional aspect allows for sending commands from the host to the wand to, for example, turn the on-board LEDs on and off, and it allows for multiple wands to share the same frequency.”

    Now it remains to be seen if they impliment this kind of technology with gaming, but it is interesting to see that each of the 3 contenders have some ideads that are nearly identical. Call it the creative community consciousness.

    Remember whos behind the xbox 360 boyz………microsoft is far ahead in technology compared 2 sony……..and u havent seen the full potential of the 360…because the games arent as advanced as the console…yet…but soon… sony hasent launched yet 4 a reason…….there in desparate need of seeing what xbox does…….there behind in many reasons….u all got to give ur head a shake………xbox would of came out last…if they where worried…….remember that!

  285. rice said,

    Tyson, learn to talk in complete sentences and maybe people will think you are decently intelligent and listen to your point of view, even though it is wrong. Sony’s ps3 is going to be so much more powerful than the xbox 360, and the game graphics will reach potential much quicker because sony dosn’t poo on the shoe like microsoft does. Microsoft pinches its customer’s winkles.
