  1. The best console is the Playstation 3 because-

    *Reliability- The PS3 has a.2% defect rate, the Xbox 360 has a 33% failure rate.

    *Cell Processor- The cell processor is an extremely powerful micro processor built of 8 processors (SPE’s) and one PPE. This processor is built for extreme amounts of processing and is very useful for multi tasking through artificial intelligence, physics, lighting navigation, etc- The xbox 360 has a 3 core processor, which is strong in general processing, albeit not the best for video games.

    *RSX GPU- The RSX is a powerful GPU which is specialized to work with the cell processor to render DX10 like graphics by pooling it’s RAM.- The xbox 360’s GPU can only handle DX-9, while is good in the graphics department, though not the best.

    *Blu Ray- The next generation disc medium which can store up to 50GB (100GB in experimental models) The extra space allows game developers to make large responsive environments, complex artificial intelegance, HD video and audio, etc. without compression.- The xbox 360 only uses DVD for games, which can only hold 9GB, which results in short games, aka Halo 3, Bioshock, and gears of war.

    *Other operating systems- The ps3 can get different operating systems installed, such as Linux, allowing it to be an alternative computer, and you can install many diferent programs.- The xbox 360 cannot do this

    *Web browser- The ps3 has a decent web browser, which you can go to many different web sites with, it does have basic flash updates, but it does need to be improved upon, including in java, though this can be fixed easily via a firmware upgrade. Many popular sites like myspace and youtube are accessable though.- the xbox 360 doesn’t have one

    *Folding@home- With this program which can be downloaded to any PS3 easily, you can use your PS3’s extra processing power while you’re not using it for Cancer research by folding and analyzing proteins.

    *Play TV- Pretty much Tivo for your ps3, a tuner that you can record things with. Though it has only been announced to launch in Europe so far.

    *Interchangeable hard drive- This pretty much means you can change the size of your hard drive with any hard drive so you can store more things.- you have to buy an expensive MS HDD for the 360

    *Built in wifi- Wifi lets you connect to the internet wirelessly- With the xbox 360 you have to buy a wifi adapter for $100, this comes standard in the PS3.

    *Free Online- the xbox 360 costs $50 per year

    *Playstation Home- Playstation home is an interactive community of ps3 users where you can play games or meet up with friends and hang out at your virtual home and hang outs, as well as stream live media(releasing in early 08 and is FREE)

    * Games- For now good games include; Heavenly Sword, Resistance Fall of Man, Rainbow Six Vegas, Folklore, warhawk, lair, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Call of Duty 4 Uncharted:Drakes Fortune, Motorstorm, Eye of Judgment etc. Good upcoming games are Haze, Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo Prologue, LittleBigPlanet, SOCOM confrontation, Tekken 6, Time Crisis 4, White Knight Story, and Final Fantasy XIII. Over 300 games will be released by next spring.

  2. Have you noticed that all the super-awesome features on the PS3 have nothing to do with gaming? Blu-Ray? Folding@Home? Linux?

    Gaming systems are for playing games.

    Check the two links below for game lists and ratings. then pick the system which has the games you want to play.

    Good luck.

  3. Well I will not get technical and break it down with cell processor and all this other stuff. Price if that what matter you really have to think about it break it down. First the controller on a 360 required batterys.that add up. The hd-dvd add on go up to about 200 bucks.so with the 299 plus the 200 your about to pay the same price as a ps3. So it won’t be price. I can tell you this much the ps3 game uncharted was great as far as graphics and the loading was pretty slim. For example it loaded once and that the beginning of the game afterwards it would load but during the gameplay. Serious after you died there wasn’t a loading screen. Loading is pretty going away on the ps3. As far the as 360 games.pretty much similar game they are all first person shooter.and if your a halo or a gear or war fan there resistance, time crisis4, even warhawk are all awesome games. The online is free and it wi-fi. I think you got pay another pretty penny for wireless on the 360. The 360 break down lots of time before the ps3 would. Red circle of death-it happen so often it has a name- Well I won’t lie I wanted a 360 but to play gear of war and I heard it was a short game and it only online gaming that keep that game strong. Well these are my arguments.good luck on your decision once again it depend on what kind of gamer you are and if you want to pay 50 bucks a year to play your console.

  4. OK YOU ARE ON PLAYSTATION ANSWERS. WHICH MEANS THE “PS3 FANBOYS” ARE GOING TO TELL YOU BUY THE PS3 DUH!

    I HAVE XBOX 360,XBOX 360 HD-DVD ADD-ON PLAYER,NINTENDO Wii & PS3. I HAVE ALL 3 CONSOLES OK. THE 360 & THE PS3 ARE “BOTH” ARE OUTSTANDING CONSOLES & THERE HD. IT IS LIKE SAYING WHICH “BIKE IS BETTER? THE BMW OR HARLEY”? IT REALLY DEPENDS ON YOUR TASTE.

    -OK HERE ARE MY LIST OF THE PS3 & 360.

    PRICE:

    -PS3 $399.99 WITH 40GB & WITH FREE SPIDER-MAN 3 ON BLU-RAY OR PS3 $499.99 WITH 80GB & FREE MOTORSTORM.

    -360 HALO 3 CONSOLE WITH 20GB $399.99. THE 360 ELITE $449.99 WITH 120GB. 360 PRO VALUE BUNDLE $296.00 WITH 20 GB & 2 FREE GAMES.

    *THE 360 CONSOLES HAVE GOOD PRICE & AFFORDIBLE.

    GAMES & ON:

    -THE PS3 HAS SMALL LIBRARY GAMES BUT, IT WILL HAVE “GOOD” GAMES COMING OUT ON NEXT YEAR. THE PS3 ONLINE IS FREE ENROLLMENT BUT, YOU HAVE TO “PAY” FOR DOWNLOADING GAMES,VIDEO,MOVIES, & ECT.

    -THE XBOX 360 IT HAS “FULL” LIBRARY CHOICE & MANY GAMES ARE NOT ON PS3. THE XBOX LIVE YOU HAVE TO “PAY” FOR ENROLLMENT & “PAY” DOWNLOADING ARCADE GAMES,MOVIES,PICTURES,MUSIC & ECT.

    *I LIKE THE XBOX LIVE BETTER THEN PS3 ONLINE BECAUSE IT IS MORE ENTERTAINING & MORE TITLES. PS3 IS GOOD BUT, I LIKE XBOX LIVE. IT SUCKS THAT YOU HAVE TO PAY!

    HARDWARE CONSOLE:

    -THE PS3 IT IS NICE MADE & IT HAS AROUND 10% OF HARDWARE FAILURE. I NEVER HAD PROBLEM WITH MINE.

    -THE XBOX 360 HARDWARE IS MADE CHEAP. YOU SHOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT THE 3RROD BECAUSE MICROSOFT THEY “ADD” FALCON CHIP ON THE NEW 360 CONSOLES ON THE 360 ELITE & 360 HALO 3 CONSOLE. YOU ALSO HAVE 3 YRS OF WARRANTY. THE PS3 IT ONLY HAS 6 MONTHS OR LESS OF WARRANTY.

    SUMMARY: I AM NOT SAYING 36O IS BETTER. I PERSONLY I LIKE MY NINTENDO WII MORE. YOU SHOULD MAKE PROPS & CONS LIST. YOU BUY WITH CONFIDENT & DON’T LET 360 OR PS3 FANBOYS TELL YOU BS ANSWERS. GOOD LUCK!

    -GAMER SINCE 9 YRS OLD.

  5. 360 is the best console because it has better games better graphics more features and is just all around better i have both and we played the ps3 for like 2 weeks and now it s in my closet because the games and the graphics suck i am not sure but there’s on line availability with xbox 360 and i don’t know if PS3 offers it but on the xbox its way fun so i think all around the xbox is the best and you wont regret it.

  6. If you have a High-Deff Tv I’ld go for the Ps3, it has the same games as xbox 360 and WAY better graphics

  7. The PS3 is the better choice because starting this spring, the PS3 will become the best console.This spring games for the PS3 will make it the better system

  8. Depends what you want. Make sure to get a warranty if you get a 360, they break often (although I’m on my 1st one, 8 months in). In terms of exclusive games, I give the edge to 360. Halo 3, Gears of War, Bioshock and Mass Effect are all fantastic games. The PS3 has quality exclusives as well in Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, and soon to be Final Fantasy, Gran Turismo and God of War, 3 VERY good series. Online play is much better on 360 but it is also $50 annually, while PS3’s online is free. I give the edge to Blu Ray (PS3) over HD DVD (360) in terms of quality, likely longevity and selection.
