Playstation 3. How does it compare to the XBOX360?

Well, now that it is out, how does it compare to the 360?

They are a couple of titles that are available for both machines and the reviews seem to favour the XBOX360.

How does Resistance: Fall of Man compare to Gears of War? How does it compare to early XBOX360 releases like GRAW of Perfect Dark Zero?

Also, anyone had a try at WII? Is it worth buying as a "party console"?

I havent followed the specs for a while but i think the PS3 is more powerful but the 360 has a hell of alot more features.

you probably want to wait a few months until real-people get these (ie. non-biased types) or those e-bay-ing them for xmas.

really, unless you MUST have blu-ray movie playback, there is no reason to buy a PS3 anytime soon. (PS3 is 1/2 the price of any other blu-ray player today). for example, the software library will look pathetic next summer compared to 360 alone. no publisher is going to worry much about making a perfect game for a system in short supply and with only limited hardcore customers (will buy any shovelware at launch)... glen

Re: Playstation 3. How does it compare to the XBOX360?

Yeah, I read those "specs" comparisons, but now that both machines are out, all that talk is pointless since you have the chance to compare games in both machines.

If you read the XBOX specs vs the PS2 specs, the XBOX is 10 times more powerfull than the PS2, but if you compare GT4 to Forza, they are both great, and I couldnt pick one over the other. Even though XBOX games do look better than PS2 games, its not the difference is not as HUGE as the specs would let you believe.

Thats why Im always skeptical about all that tech talk, and I feel that now we have the chance to really compare both systems.

I already have the XBOX 360 (with every decent game there is.... yeah its insane). I dont plan on getting the PS3 unless they release some pretty amazing software.

I may be getting the WII if playing with the new controler turns out to be fun (Im atracted by WII sport, super monkey ball and those kind of party games)

Re: Playstation 3. How does it compare to the XBOX360?

well developed 360 & PS3 games will look about the same.

developers will be cross-coding more than ever to recoup high costs. no developer will scratch the surface of the systems power anytime soon - and if they could they'd have marketing deadlines and "next version" compromises to add.

the few exceptions will be exclusive titles and even those will be about the same... halo3 aint' gonna trounce the best 'graphical' PS3 and vice versa... glen

Re: Playstation 3. How does it compare to the XBOX360?

Yeah, that's also what I m expecting. Cross platform games were also similar in the previous gen, and Im beting it will be even more so this time around. The exclusive titles are probably going to to try to push the boundaries of each console a little more. If I buy the PS3 it ll be for those exclusive titles.

Re: Playstation 3. How does it compare to the XBOX360?

well im an xbox fan, there aren't that many games i like on playstation (grand tourismo, metal gear solid, gta). but id probably get a 360 for halo 3 alone, anyone who has halo 2 will understand.
of course there is the whole blu-ray vs hd-dvd thing all ill say is sony dosent have a good history when it comes to its own formats.

Re: Playstation 3. How does it compare to the XBOX360?

today is wednesday - i was at Best Buy this monring picking something up and there are guys (and girls) camping out on the sidewalk...some of them in TENTS...since last night...for saturday's PS3 release.

Insane, fanatic or retarded...you pick.

Presumably they're going to buy them for $600 and try to sell them on **** for $3000. Is 4 straight days outside in the rain worth $2400?

Re: Playstation 3. How does it compare to the XBOX360?

Hi,

I have a PC I use for recording and gaming. It's got a high-end NVidia graphics card and an additional soundcard (non ASIO) just for gaming.

IMHO the high res graphics on a 19" sony TFT (1280x1024 and up) and hifi surround sound delivered by this machine will NEVER be beaten by (analogue) TV-based consoles (400x300 res max).

I have played the Godfather on both X-box and PC, and the PC experience was MUCH MORE gratifying.

That's why I don't use consoles (Have an old PS/2 though, but NEVER use it)

anyway, just IMHO of course.

Regards,

JP

Huh? I thought they'd be only available in Japan. Or is there a batch sold in US too?

Dude, lets not turn this into a PC vs console debate, because its not the point and it has been debated to death.
