PS3 v.s. XBOX 360

The mother load of all epic battles, the PS3 v.s. the Xbox 360. A lot of hype about these two systems has swept the nation. But, it’s not the games, nor the features that have everybody talking. It’s WHO WILL SELL BETTER. With the release of Halo 3 on the 360, it’ll be quite difficult for Sony to bounce back. Although the Halo franchise has built up ENORMOUS sales since its debut in November of 2001, it’s still just a shooter containing all the features of those that came both before, and after it. Yes, the story line is fantastic, but can it hold the 360 up on its shoulders alone, against the onslaught of the new games PS3 will soon to be releasing? In features alone, the PS3 BLOWS the 360 away. With its sleek design, Blu-ray compatibility, and FREE online multi-player gaming, Xbox just doesn’t stand a chance. Yes, the 360 has made more sales so far, but the real question is, how long can they keep it up? The only reason why more people have been buying the 360, rather then the PS3, is because of the price difference, and the game selection. One thing that PS3 haters don’t realize, is the fact that Sony has always been on top. They have better game licenses, and have MANY more, extremely successful gaming franchises than Microsoft. What does Microsoft have? Halo 3. And that’s about it. Let’s count all the successful franchises Sony has:

  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Final Fantasy (HUGE!)
  • Jak and Daxter
  • God of War
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Twisted Metal
  • Syphon Filter
  • Gran Turismo
  • Genji
  • Killzone
  • Motorstorm
  • Resistance
  • Sly Cooper
  • Warhawk
  • Uncharted
  • L.A.I.R.

Look at all those! Now granted, some of these have appeared on other platforms, mostly Nintendo, and not all these are series, yet (Hint, Hint), but they are mostly exclusive to Sony only.

Now to the features. Let’s see here, where to start… Let’s go with internal stuff first. Here are some of the specs compared between the two:

  • Both are Hi-Def, but the PS3 also has the ability to play Blu-ray’s right out of the package. Score one for the PS3.
  • Both use Massive hard drives to store music, videos, and downloaded content. And of course game saves.
  • Both have compatibility with another device from their companies. Sony’s PSP for the PS3, and Microsoft’s Zune for the 360.
  • PS3 is backwards compatible right out of the box, while an extra hard drive, if Core edition is bought, is needed if you want to play original Xbox games. 2-0 in favor of the PS3.
  • Both have extremely powerful processors, for being video game systems.
  • The PS3 has four USB ports, while the 360 has three. 3-0
  • Sony has finally surpassed Microsoft in the number of people in multi-player! On one console alone, the PS3 supports up to seven wireless Bluetooth controllers, while the 360 only supports 4! 4-0
  • They are both Wi-Fi ready right out of the box.
  • One thing that I am very disappointed in Microsoft is the fact that Sony has incorporated a highly sophisticated computer-like interface into the PS3, and nothing has been done with the 360! And, Microsoft is a computer programming company! Yes, you can customize the “skin” of the Xbox Gamer Guide, but you can change the WHOLE interface of the PS3! Ubuntu Linux is now an available option for the PS3. 5-0
  • Yes, Xbox does have a semi-more interactive multi-player gaming experience than the PS3, but the PS3’s if FREE. What a wonderful word. FREE. So I’ll give a point to the 360 too. 6-1

Xbox 360 is a very good console, don’t get me wrong, but it just doesn’t have the PUSH to go the long distance against the new PS3 games. All in all, the PS3 is the logical choice in a head to head contest with the 360. With its powerful features and unique interfaces, the PS3 will beat the 360 by a long shot in upcoming months. The only thing really dictating this is the price difference. But, while you Xbox fans are paying $50 a year, just to play online, just remember the PS3’s is FREE. That extra hundred dollars will be payed back to you in no time PS3 buyers.

Limewire Facts

SUCKS!

I used to have Limewire on my computer. It was great. Unlimited access to programs, movies, and music. But, my computer ran so slow! My internet sucked, and I couldn’t play any games that demanded ram! Then it suddenly crashed on me! So, I took to one of my friend’s dad. He totally fixed it up for me. He wiped out my whole system and downloaded this awesome spyware and virus detection software. I later found out that the cause of this malfunction was Limewire. Under the Limewire HIDDEN folders, there were 12,000, 12,000! viruses that were affecting the way my PC ran! 12,000! So, in other words, find another way to download stuff, cause Limewire

SUCKS!!!
