End the debate, unless your a flaming fanboy(I have been in the past), or there is one exclusive title to ps3 that you must have(I had one - TekkenDR Online), 360 destroys PS3 100 fold.
I own both, ahem(I also develop on both), the PS3 is trash!
Everywhere on 360 you will go, damn they really did this feature right, conversely on PS3 you will be saying damn they couldnt have screwed this up more!!
360 has a vastly superior library, better hardware, and better online.
PS3 has free online, crappy ports of 360 games, HD-Audio off of Bluray and thats it!
For the 50 quid a year for 360 online, some bitch as PSN is free, but a head to head comparison of say COD4 (Widely considered the best/closest replication of the 360 version in terms of grfx, framerate, and general playability) it becomes immediately apparent were the 50 duckets went. The online experience on 360 destroys bot PS3 and Wii its like Sending Mike Tyson to fight a one legged, blind, retarded kid.
Yeah, Sony's implementation of Bluray IS better than MS's implementation of HD-DVD only for the fact that you cant get HD audio of the discs on 360 and you can w/ PS3. This is nice to be sure, but in the end this IS a video GAME system, and while there is more storage, Bluray has much slower read times than regular DVD = Long ass load times!
Hey, if there is an exclusive to PS3, its hard to argue against, but as far as Library in totality, 360 = major pwnage, more and better exclusives! and all cross platform titles are crappy ports of the 360. COD4 is the first title Ive seen on par w/ the 360 version, but as Sony's online infrastructure and integration is sooooo poor compared to LIVE, the 360 version is that much more enjoyable to play.
While I cant argue w/ ring of death statements (I went through 5 360's in 6 months - frustrating) Hopefully they have solved the problem as my Elite has been running flawlessly! I dont think PS3 is out of the woods just yet, Im still on my first original Xbox1 and going strong, whereas my current PS2 was the 5th one I had to get.
Forget about PS home, Ive been in the Beta since day 1 of the beta (perk of my profession), yes its cool, but its novelty eventually wears off, and doesnt hide the fact that it in no way improves the most important aspect, I think, of buying a new gen console - Playing next gen kick ass games w/ amaizing grfx and sound with friends all over the globe!
And Im spent
