Good morning folks :wve:

I've decided not to bother with the whole PC gaming anymore. Graphics cards, Blah blah blah. So, I've decided to save up for a new console. But, Which one? Xbox 360 or PS3? They're both expensive. But, What one will be better? I mean, Would TR8 come out in 360 or just PS3 and PC? XBox 360 is cheaper, it's fixed it's bugs. PS3 is expensiver, and probably have plently bug's! So, Which one? I need to know by May so, I can start saving. I've got 25 saved already :D

Help. Thanks :wve:

Although I will say that I think Sony holding out will lose them their dominance in the console war.

PS3, without a doubt. It will be the first 'true' next-gen console, the 360 is sitting on the fence somewhere :D

PS3 - definitely. :tmb:

The fact is (i think :p) There aint much difference in the PS3 and 360. And most games are going to be mulitplatform, e.g. FF and GTA. The 360 has Xbox live, which is a great piece of software. I would bet my bottom dollar the 360 is cheaper.

A bit biased, dont you think :P the 360 is a powerful beast, the surface aint been touched yet!

However PS3 will be powerful aswell.

360 is already old computer technology. Get PS3!

Spitfire
24-04-06, 02:04
360 if ur unwilling to wait and dont have alot of money.

If not, id wait for PS3, Sony has always done me well, best and biggest library of games, only system with Great quality RPGs and alot of them. usually is the one to get the game before other systems and already has a very big list of publishers that are devoted to making games for Sony as it's always made them money.

Graphics wise it will likely be better but i dont believe it will be as great as the hype has made it out to be, nothing like the Kill Zone video that is so famous, but something close like MGS4

I thought it through and I think I'm going to save for a PS3 :D

Xbox 360 all the way. Here's Why!

1. Xbox Live is absoluetly brilliant, it is far better than the current online bit for ps2, ijust hope ps3's will be better, have you heard the name of it, something like this "Playstation Network Platform" http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4834940.stm Read that for confimation.

2. The worst thing Sony has ever done is give 360 that one year headstart, 360 has some amazing games coming up for when PS3 is due to launch (november) Gears of War, Halo 3, Brothers In Arms 3 and the rest!

3. Games developers who are currently working on Titles for both platforms are saying 360 has that little more to give! and PS3 is expensive to make games for, vis-a-vis more expensive to buy, due to Blu-ray, sure Blu-ray disks hold more, but i would rather have a game with two disks rather than paying more for a Blu-ray game. (p.s i read that i one of my mags i will hunt some evidence down on the net)

Whats with this?

PS3 360
System Memory 256 MB XDR 512 MB UMA (Shared with GPU)
Video Memory 256 MB 512 MB UMA (Shared with CPU)
??

So the 360 beats PS3 in memory or is the PS3's some sort of better memory (like that XDR?)

Timy226
24-04-06, 10:17
They are equal, in memory. THe 360 and PS3 are jsut as powerful as eachother really, theres is a hardly a difference. I will end up getin a PS3 a few years afetr launch. I mean i got Halo 3, Brothers in arms 3, Mas effect Star wars knights of the old republic 3 (hopefuly) Alan wake, REsi 5, GTA 4 all for the 360. I really dont need a PS3 at all :D The only PS3 exclusive that looks good is MGS4, the rest are coming to 360 aswell so it does nto matter to me.

Spitfire
24-04-06, 10:37
its the "supposedly revolutionary" Cell chip that allows incredible processing power that is going to make the PS3 better.

Lets just say one thing :

XBOX 360 IS THE MOST POWERFUL CONSOLE IN THE UNIVERSE

PS3 -Just "promises"...

Lets just say one thing :

PS3 -Just "promises"...

Seeing as we can only compare it to consoles on Earth, I think thats a bit of an overexaggeration :D

Personally I'm going for the PS3, not only do its promises sound very nice, but its simply has all the games I like. I have nothing against 360, in fact I want one! After playing a friends 360 last week, I very nearly went and bought one, for the graphics alone. But I realised in time that its not worth the price to me, because the game library is too limited based on my tastes. In the current gen there is hardly any games on Xbox that I want which aren't also on PS2 (the console I own), I think the case will be the same in the next gen. And on top of that PS2 has a lot of exclusives or first releases of games I love, such as Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, Grand Theft Auto, Devil May Cry etc... Sure, some of these are on Xbox too, but were released on PS2 first and later ported to Xbox. Again, from what I've seen of the next gen, the same thing is going to happen.

Microsoft are realising a new chip according to GameSpot so they'll be closer to bieng equal, I vote PS3 because FF7 is coming out on it *dribbles* PS3 graphics on such an old skool final fantasy :cln: I am saving and have got 22 :vlol:

And yes i agree with you Dark Angel!!!

PS3 or 360?

I'll take BOTH thank you :D

Alex West
24-04-06, 13:50
360! I bought my XBox a few years ago because the Buffy game was an XBox exclusive and I haven't looked back since lol. :D

(Don't have the 360 yet but I plan to soon lol :p)

Jebus
24-04-06, 13:52
And Yes Dark Angel PS3 only Promise, like with the Killzone 2 demo, saying that is gameplay, yeah whatever, Microsoft have never lyed about their console, never showed fake videos and all that, they have benn honest and said "Well this is what you are going to get take it or leave it" and then it comes down to the customer to say either: "yes thats great graphics etc" or "Not good enough really for the money, ill wait a bit thanks"

Timy226
24-04-06, 13:54
I agree UT i will get both, but i am not getin PS3 on launch, there is no need to, as i said all Sony exclusive games will be coming out for the 360. If the 360 and PS3 came out at the same time, i might of got a PS3, i dont know. I love my 360 and am very excited for the future of gaming on it. Its gona be one sweet ride :D

Jebus
24-04-06, 13:55
and who thinks Halo 3 is going to be launched on ps3 release date, i think it will!!!

I dont think that game even exists yet lol. They would have released info if it was to come out at PS3 launch. Halo 3 better be good, Halo 2 stunk!

Jebus
24-04-06, 14:00
did you ever play Halo 2 on LIVE that was amazing! i think Halo 3 will be revealed at E3 in MAY and it will shock the world!:jmp:

24-04-06, 15:39

24-04-06, 16:41
yeah damn right it is worse than anyones!!!

I know the manager of my local GAME (or EB if your in USa) and he said he has only had a couple of complaints about faulty 360's compared to the dozens and dozens concerning the PS2!!! Microsoft have done something no one could do before, a world wide release in around 20 days, give them credit!

I think some people had problems with the first batch. I got mine from the second batch, and they guy in the shop assured me it would be fine, which it has. I have spent many hours playing TRL on it :D

LOL That made me laugh!

I was just asking myself this question. I know NOTHING about these things, but recently bought a massive lcd lv and want a console for my b'day in October/ christmas.
So they're basically the same except PS3 has a bigger pricetag?And PS3 will have more games released? :confused:

Timy226
24-04-06, 17:59
It will have a bigger pirice tag probably, but no most games will be multiplatform, specially the big ones, FF, Resident evil, GTA etc. Even Lara is multiplatform now. So yeh it wiull have a bigger price tag, but on the subject of it having more games released, nah i dont thinks o, i would say equal really, You also get Xbox Live Arcade with 360 which rules!

24-04-06, 18:00
i'll probably get the ps3 considering i have the ps and ps2. i'm too cheap to buy more than 1 console

MaxPayne
24-04-06, 21:21
ps3 all the way!!!
if want ps3 buy it on 2007 if u can wait that long and remember 360 will get old soon so stay away from it.
my cousin have too many problems with it.
anyways ps3 has alot of awesome games like socom,metal gear, resistance and if possible god of war 3 maybe.
if u cant wait and already bought 360. believe me u will be saying to urself"i should have wait"

24-04-06, 21:26

24-04-06, 21:28
ps3 will be best, but i think neither will be as good as they're hyped up to be. ps2 never looked as good as the pre release screen shots (or whatever you call them).

While I have a 360 and am definately getting PS3 too, I have become very suspicious when Sony makes promises with new consoles.

With the PS2, they made countless promises about the emotion engine being the most powerful thing on Earth. They promised 'Toy Story 2' quality graphics and that certainly never happened.

While I have no doubt that PS3 will be a powerful machine, I am also smart enough not to fall for the Sony hype.
