PS3 v.s. Xbox 360

Which one is better in terms of features, specs, etc? Does anyone have a clue of how much it's going to cost for either one?

Holla!

P.S. The PS3's controller looks like a boomerang, anybody notice?

You can check this ign's E3 2005: PlayStation 3 vs. Xbox 360 and Game Informer's briefing of PS3. I will find few more soon or later.

As for price? I don't know about PS3 or Xbox 360.. not yet anyway.

Edit: I have only one complaint about PS3, it is ... boomerang-like controller .___.

I dunno, it might cost more then 300 dollars I brought a playstation 2 and it cost me almost 200.00....

I like game cube alot better than any playstation and X box since I don't like most of the games they have for those game machines.....

I don't even know if I will buy those for my children, it's depending on what type of games they will have for those new machines that are coming out...

For myself I don't find them cool but I'm sure my boys will think they are....

(Yes, I think they need to re-design the controller, same goes for Xbox 360's)

I'd think the PS3 has better features and a better engine. The PS3 has 9 processors clocking at 3.2 GHz in ONE core, they are not like the real computer processors, they're designed for consoles. There's no technology yet that makes it possible to do that on a real computer, though. The PS3 supports 1020p HDTV resolution, AND the PS2 supports 720p (standard HDTV resolution), lot of people don't know that. The GT4 supports 720p.

Remember, no matter how fast the console is, the best games are made by great programmers, so the graphics generally look the same on the old xBOX and that 4 year old PS2.

geez...the playstation 3 logo just looks so much like the spider-man movie logo! lol

of course...the PS3 looks just about the same size as the orginal PS2 console.

no biggie, though it obviously will be much more powerful than the orginal PS2 console.

I already own PS2, Xbox, and even GameCube...

but would it be worth to own all three consoles again?

who knows?

Funny thing is... E3 is only approx 30 miles away from here and I didn't go there I really want to but money and time are not permitted.

Everyone, make sure that you have strong heart... if not, do not read this article at all and ignore this post completely. Don't say that I did not warn you





Here's article:
Quote:
May 17, 2005 - According a an article published in the May 17th edition of Japan's Mainichi Shimbun, the PlayStation 3 could be one of the most expensive mass-market videogame consoles ever created. Officials from Sony apparently told the newspaper that PlayStation 3s would sell in Japan for "less than 50,000 yen each." That translates to about $465 US dollars.

Sony unveiled its next-generation console at the Electronics Entertainment Expo 2005. The beast of a machine utilizes the powerful Cell processor, a custom-designed graphics chip by Nvidia, and 512MBs of RAM for a quantum leap in performance. The system will also be the first-ever to support high-def movie-playback out of the box, taking advantage of the upcoming Blu-ray Disc format.
Sony claims that PS3 will be roughly 35 times more powerful than PS2. If Mainichi Shimbun is correct, gamers will be asked to pay a hefty price for the high-end functionality.

IGN was unable to validate this news with Sony officials. Stay tuned for more as the story breaks.
Source: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/615/615745p1.html


Even though it is unconfirmed but $465? Shit. At least they give us a year to save up the money and buy it... Regardless of price, for me, PS3 will be worth to buy and own.

Less than 24 hours after Microsoft's pre-E3 conference ended, US retailer EB games is already taking pre-orders for Xbox 360 games on its website.

A total of 34 games are listed, including Halo 3, Ultimate Spider-Man and Project Gotham Racing 3, priced at $59.99 each. Except for Dead or Alive 4, oddly, which is the same price as EB's current-gen Xbox titles at $49.99.

All the games have a listed release date of November 1, which EB says is speculative - much like the prices. But if they're on the right track, it looks like we won't have to shell out a great deal more for our next-gen games.

There's no listing for the Xbox 360 itself, and Microsoft is keeping tight-lipped regarding a possible price for the console. Guess we'll just have to wait and see...

Source: http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=59187


$50 - $60 a pop.

To be honest, I think a new PS3 controller would make me happier because it is a huge benefit for sports and fighter games. It makes people easier to use it and makes them more comforable. I think 20 percents cut to smaller controller or I would be wrong

Pros:

360- Amazing specs, same but tweaked up controller (thank god), Customizable faceplate etc.

PS3- The Color and style, specs are obviously better than ever...

Cons:

360- WTF are you thinking? White?

PS3- WTF is that controller?? It looks terrible and horrible!

PS3 will OWN XBOX 360 in the world. If everyone likes it better than one.

I've looked at both PS3 and xbox 360.....

Both consoles have their own strengths and weaknesses. If I had to pick either next-gen, I would pick the xbox 360 as I have grown to love playing the original xbox more than I did with the PS2.

Looking forward to PGR3, the Godfather, Test Drive Unlimited and Halo 3 (I hear M$ is planning to release Halo 3 the same day the PS3 hits the streets- talk about stealing Sony's thunder!) on the xbox 360

Yea, I'm more like over xbox 360, due to mos power console and enable to play online over 5k player for one game! Its Huxley! Xbox 360 allow play online with pc gamer as same huxley! I also forward looking other games for xbox 360 too. Still I'm so crazy, walking around the hole in my home and waiting for new, "Morrowind" I forget another name of. Its also best rpg for real way of life in old age. When u start play as level 0, have nothing skills, etc. U have to walk around to find to ur duty, follow, evil/good, etc. Its sound like fable, but morrowind is more real than fable. Anyone who play morrowind pc or xbox before?

Ohterwise, I'll buy both anyway. Because I'm so fond of sony.. My pc is sony, tv is sony, and everything on sony! Heh. That's why I'll buy both, but I prefer frist xbox 360, then ps3.

I was hoping Quake 4 would be going to Xbox instead but nope ID perfer it to be on Xbox 360 instead..aw well.

like other people mentioned about Xbox 360's color, I believe there will be other colors included like Blue or Green or Black, etc... like the limited edition green Xbox bundle with the Halo game and the limited edition blue Xbox bundle with Dead or Alive ulimate (Japan only)

white looks okay although you know the Dreamcast was the only white console ever made by Sega before it died in 2001...it looks kinda beauiful for some reason but heck it would proably look cooler if it was black or silver or whatever like that.

Playstation 3 will be aviable in three different colors...black, silver, and white.

I would proably get the black one when I get the chance sometime.

Xbox 360 is more powerful over ps3. I believe that M$ just play game with Sony since. Unitl xbox 360 will full reveal before release xbox 360, I do assume that. Or possible Sony would do same thing? But it provide that anayzling how much speed, gpu, etc- that's overtotal best is xbox 360. Well, I'm waiting unitl both release. Otherwise, xbox 360 will be frist release then ps3 and will be happen to their business will going to be mad race! =)

Wait... the analysis is conducted by Microsoft... of course the result is very, very biased. I don't want to see any analysis from Sony or Microsoft but only non-Sony/Microsoft.

P.S. The PS3's controller looks like a boomerang, anybody notice?
Alex,

I am crazy freaking fan of XBOX console and games over PS console included games... I would buy XBOX 360 when it release on 11/2005, but I doubt about that if xbox 360's CD ROM will automatically read XBOX CD Games. Since MS refused to answer xbox user's question: if old cd will work into xbox 360.. If not, I feeling waste to buy xbox 360 for nothing.. I acknowledge XBOX 360 is hottie sexy console and controller I got alot of games for my lovely XBOX CONSOLE.... look image from below...

Sablescort, Are you sure about that? Do you think, Will all Xbox backward games capable fully play on the new Xbox 360? If Yes, How do you know All xbox game software backwards compatibly will play on the new Xbox 360? Like Dextreme said of quote: "If that is so, please back up your words with more details and some linky." I want to make sure about All game software will be backwards compatible with xbox 360 console system and I would be relieve and buy it for keep real.. big smile..

NOTE: I never saying that you are full of bulliar! .... Eve though, as always in my mind: I deeply wondered and wanted to know about IF All backwards compatible Xbox game software will be play on the new Xbox 360!?

I real hope so!!!!


Thank sablescort....

just like Playstation 2 can play Playstation games...but Playstation can't play Playstation 2 games...that would be ****ed up, right? of course it would lol

I was busy with my lovely baby when he need me.. I am not here to having cold shoulder around you... anyway.. Steel, I MUST admit you , I never have own PS nor PS2 in my whole life since [little topic off]:I despited sony's products already. But especially, I had owned sony handycam (Video Camera)...

back that topic, You are right that discs are discs.. PS2 can play ps games that I heard the words from my friends who crazy about ps things which capable backwards games can play on ps2.. but I am not sure about XBOX 360 can play xbox games soffware backwards compatible!!? Since MS's dvd/ cd rom's len is more totally different from pc cd rom or dvd rom.. Like you said that PS2 can play ps games. even though, xbox 360's dvd rom 's len will be different from original xbox. dvd rom's len certainly changed itself for read cd games.. since xbox had been hacked already.. xbox 360 would be more prevent it from hacker [xbox modded]. that why I am about not sure if xbox 360 would fully capabling play XBOX the backward games compatible....

I hope that the original xbox games be backward compatible play on xbox 360!

There has been rumors that Sega's next Virtua Fighter will be under development for Xbox 360.

if that's the case, then that's pretty cool.
