I'm going to try to be completely unbiased:

360 had a year head start giving them a larger library.
PS3 is has mutli function appeal, seeing as at the time and still is a inexpensive blu-ray player, which has won the format wars between Blu Ray and HD DVD.
Many of the titles have become multiplatform anyway, like Bio Shock, Lost Planet and some others.
Majority of PS3 games are region free so you can import games more freely.
360's online is subscription based giving them enough revenue from that to maintain and have better online while PS3 online is maintain by whoever made the game making it vary. This can either be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you see it.
The PS3 has the homebrew/emulator scene if you're into that stuff.
360 runs on 512 RAM (thanks to Epic) which gives its the ability to run of par with the PS3 thus far. Gears wouldn't have been able to run if it were on the standard 256RAM like it had been planned to have.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

You need to install linux in order to play emulators.

little big planet came out recently everyones going nuts over it.

the psn has some old titles on there like 2xtreme, street fighter alpha, tekken 2, etc.

You do have to install games -which as you said- makes the games load faster as the computer is reading from the hdd instead of the disc but in gta's case its not that much shorter than if you had it on the 360

There's not many exclusives -MGS4 and LBP are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head- on the PS3 but near enough every game now is multi platform

The PSN store over in the EU is shit, it never used to update weekly -which has changed now- but I find it easier to use then XBL

I personally prefer the PS3 over the 360 because it's quieter and the controller isn't as chunky as the 360 and the console looks better -although it gathers dust very easily-

I personally like the PS3 better for many many reason mainly cuz
1) PS and PS2 were the best thing to happen to the game industry IMO i still play a lot of games from those 2 concoles so backward compatibility is a most for me

2) i got the 60GB for 500$ and im the only one that think is worth every penny and is not over price why?
a - Blu Ray BELOW the cost of normal Blu Ray DVD player
b - Can play PS 2 games
c - Can play PS games
e - DVD
f - CD
g - You can connect your USB hard drive and watch your videos(<not all of them thou)
listen to your music and see your pictures and set them as wallpapers, im still trying to see if you can use your pendrive like memory card to transfer your save files from games to another PS3
h - you can use your computer USB controllers and play your games except PS and PS2 games but still is a big help when your are playing with your friends
i - Free online
j - Browser (on flame wars [that i do for the fun of it]xbox fanboys always mention me that they have messenger but with the browser i can enter a site that have messenger on it and use it so is not a big deal)
k - 4 USB ports
l - Sixaxis is the best controller there is light weight motion sensor comfortable responsive everything is on the right place and now with the Dual Shock 3 has the vibration back
m - Wi Fi
n - The interface is very VERY easy to use and you quickly know where everything is and the themes looks way cooler then they do on XBox
o - you can remote play with your PSP
p - no regional lock
q - Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns Of The Patriots best game ever

so that for me is 600$ of worth right there and sure Xbox can do some of them too but with Blu Ray only clearly justify the price and people don't see that they just see the $ but i don't blame them the economy is real bad these days

3)The only probelm i had was with the first update i did after the download and installation the screen went black for a day but it fix itself and it hasn't occur since then so i got nothing to worry about on the other hand my brother got the first white ver. of the 360 and it broke after a month or so thats a big let down instead of fixing it he went for the black ver.(don't ask me why he did that) you don't get the cable to recharge your controller you need to buy that shit if you got a router for your online instead of the LAN you need to buy the lil antenna for the XBox a friend had to buy a cooling system in order to avoid the 3 ring of death(whatever is call) so that add up more $ then everybody thinks so you can end up spending almost as buying a PS3

The XBox supposedly have better graphics and it could be true but the guys that try to proof this have gone through such great lengh in order to show the difference 780P vs 1020P not fully HD to fully HD is all bullshit to me i try to see the difference with Soul Calibur IV i own the game on PS3 and downloaded the Demo for the XBox and after a 1:30 hour of comparison the only difference i saw is that the PS3 looks a bit darker nothing more so all of that talk that the XBox got better graphic is an epic fail since the naked eye can see it and i heard people saying that the developers haven't get the full potential of the PS3 since is hard to progam on the PS3 similar to what happen to the previews PS consoles(not sure if this can be true or not)

im not a Sony fanboy let me clear that i do play XBox from time to time Gears Of War 2 Geometry War Ghost Recon and Call Of Duty 4 are games i play on 360
i find that the XBox is a bit faster on some loads and off course online too and the online features are better then the PSN but thats to be expected is Microsoft for God sakes if they loose on that then is all over for them right now the new PS3 ver. are virtually crap IMO since there is no backward capabilities and only got 2 USB ports so is in the same league as the 200$ Xbox but it cost 200$ more they shouldn't have discontinue the 60GB ver that was a real stupid move by them

I'm definatly getting one...simply because the 360 isn't my thing at all :

It's way too noisy, the controls are just to complicated & bulky
Not to mention they go way overboard with the "shoot-em-up" games, seriously
I stayed at my mates house last night, and I never even felt to play it.

The PS3 looks sick, the games looked more varied, the controls are easier to use.
And it has...

as for the dust... whatever..get a cloth and wipe that shit, dont you wipe your ass?? at least with the ps3 you wouldn't have to wash your hands.

and hey, ok maybe ps3 doesn't have the armoury of games the 360 has, but the games on the ps3 are on its own pretty damn good and for most part legendary. remember that mgs4 has so much replay value.

And the ps3 has free internet gaming facilities provided you got your own wifi etc etc..

man mic tyson its really what you prefer my man.i prefer ps3 because there is so much you can do with it(blu ray,emulators,easier media streaming etc) but there is not a thing wrong with the 360 or the wii for that matter.

all i can say is if there is a place that you could possibly rent a ps3 or whatever i suggest doing that,rent the ps3 a few games and try it out. we could all give u our reasons why u should buy on but the only answer that matters is your own my nigga.

the choice is yours!!!

Is there any big or noticeable difference in sport games titles in 360 & ps3 like Madden or Fifa (I'm basically asking which consoles sports games is better).

Is there any big or noticeable difference in sport games titles in 360 & ps3 like Madden or Fifa.at first yes

the 360 versions of madden live fifa etc were noticebly better on the 360 due to a faster framerate. 360 versions ran at 60fps whereas the ps3 versions ran at 30fps and were also very choppy.

now that ea has figured out the cell processor(admittingly the cell be a bitch at times) the 09 versions are even now. madden 09 ran better on the ps3 this time some people said.

11-14-2008, 11:38 AM
so developers are understanding that cell shit more so the games quality on PS3 are raising up a bit

but really have you play a game on Xbox and PS3 and see any difference at all?

It supports many different codecs, XVID, DIVX, blah blah blah. So you can watch PORN (or other movies, whatever you like).

This is what I do, Download a movie (or an entire television series) I want to watch, then using TVersity on my PC, stream it to my PS3 (through my home wireless network) and watch the movie.

Or, I'll use my usb drive and sneakernet it over to my PS3 and watch it right off the USB joint.

Plus my PS3 is backwards compatible with PS2, but I'm not sure if the new ones are. But I got over 50+ PS2 games, so I need that compatibility.

Then, I'll use the chat room to have a jack off session with some hot young white girl fingering her ass in her parents living room via da web cam ya dig? No not really, but it's on my to do list.

Most game site and review shows compare a multi-platform games and they say that they are always better on XBOX 360. if your going to get a PS3, there are 2 things to take into consideration.
1. Do you like their exclusives more than the exclusives on the other consoles?
2. Do you want a Blu-Ray player

These are the only 2 reasons to buy a PS3, and they are VERY good reasons. But if your a Halo or Gears of War fan, go with XBOX360 (or buy PS3 and get these games on PC).

I have a 360 and a Wii. I wanted a PS3 because at one point it was the cheapest Blu-Ray player. But as I'm not interested in any of the exclusives and only one of my friends has a PS3 while everyone else has 360 (lending games to each other saves a ton of money).
