PS3 v 360 debate - why?

Scribbles Avatar
9y, 8m agoPosted 9 years, 8 months ago
Each console has it's fans, and each has it's criticisers.
But I am left wondering if either can take the moral high ground?
I mean ... look at the match up. Micro$oft v $ony.

HaHaHa :roll:

If any console can take some kind of high ground, i'd say it's the Wii. Good price point, fun, and sold like hot cakes. I'd personally like to see some threads that praise this great little Nintendo console. I think that Nintendo will beat the two big boys when all is counted, for value, playability and design.

The Wii already seems to be the most talked about console on HUKD. Definitely a real community of fans. The 360 has the most deals posted and the PS3 well... things will change.
#2
no offence but the wii is a completely different market
#3
Surely it should be Nin¥do too? They want your money just as much as anyone else, they just manage to do it at a profit :)

It's happy days at the moment for the Wii but I think we all know that MS/Sony will come out guns blazing once lower price points set in with falling hardware costs. Can the Wii really make it through this generation on its control scheme? Things are only just kicking off and the Wii is already seriously underpowered despite being a tidy effort.

from what ive seen of the wii, it looks like a little kiddie's console. but admittedly ive not played one, so maybe im wrong. but it doesnt look like it would be much good for action or horror type games.

That is true. The Wii is a bit 'kiddish', whereas the other two are more for power gamers. I'm simply approaching this by asking the question "Why would either (360 or PS3) have fanboys singing their praises?".
I wouldn't stand up in a debate and praise MS or Sony. They are both in the game exclusively for the amount of money they can make for their shareholders. Not that Nintendo are any different, but the Wii seems to be aimed exclusively at pleasing the user.
Yes, they are all good consoles in different respects. I just don't get the psychology of it is all.
"I have a 360, and EVERYONE should get one too! It's much better, and cooler, than that overpriced behemoth from Sony!!". Or vice versa.
The only issue, for me, with either machine is the pricepoint and game quality. I think the 360 wins that one personally, but I wouldn't disown my friend if he went out and bought a PS3. In fact, it wouldn't really bother me too much at all. It's just a chunk of electronics, no different to a portable TV or DVD recorder.

We've had a 360 (now sold) and have got a PS3 -

The PS3 looks like a George Foreman Grill.

But the motion sensor Sixaxis is pretty good- I've only played Formula 1 and Fall of Man so far and the game play is very smooth. Hubby prefers it over the 360.

Removed google link as it had my full name in the title lol

A console is only as good as its software. And for that reason, the 360 is winning hands down.....at the moment.

well im personally loving resident evil 4 on my gamecube at the minute, and it handles it pretty well...so the Wii should be able to do better as long as the gameplay is there (and it uses decent controls) Ive got a 360, but wanna Wii just for the multiplayer/gameplay side of things really

I think in the Ps3/xbox360 debate, i guess it comes down to what games you want to play. I mean, if you're specifically waiting for Gran Turismo or Metal Gear then PS3 is the only way. It really comes down to the games you've got your eye on. Xbox360 do have a head start in terms of having more games available 'now'

To sum up my feelings on the matter, graphics are all well and good, but if the gameplay aint there and the game doesnt keep you coming back for more over and over, then there just isnt any point. Ive felt this about a few xbox360 titles and im sure the PS3 will be the same
[mod]#9
I've got a Wii and a 360 and at the minute and the Wii wins hands down. Excellent controls on most of the games and long term playability. As for it being a kiddies console, how about Call of Duty 3, The Godfather & Zelda to name a few. Don't get me wrong i think my 360's great but when you look through the graphics then it's not doing anything new, unlike the Wii which is changing everything and will no doubt have it's ideas stolen by Microsoft and Sony within a couple of years.

I have a Wii and an Xbox 360 and in my opinion, the 360 wins hands down, simply because of xbox live, which allows you to play against the best players the world has to offer and communicate with them, which makes it almost as fun as when you're playing with your own local friends.

The Wii is a good machine, which will look to innovate and taking gaming into new realms but any hardcore adult gamer will always look down upon this machine as a Nintendo Gamecube V1.5 with an innovative controller and Nintendo will never be able to shake off the "kiddie image" which it seems to be stuck with until they stop aiming their market at families.

I've yet to play a PS3 and it is deemed to comfortably be the most powerful console available graphics wise but unless it has major exclusive games, then what is the point?

Distrubitors always make multiplatform games based on the lowest common denominator, which is the reason why Pro Evo 6 is renowned for being of a higher standard on the dated PS2, ahead of the Xbox 360 version.
For this reason, Gamespot rated practically every multiplatform game on the xbox 360 to be of a higher standard over the PS3's supposedly identical versions, so unless Sony can manage to get some big exclusive games, Xbox will be better in terms of the planned exclusives, multiplatform games and Xbox live.

The Wii has always been recommended as the second console that should be in every home for different type of gaming.

Loosely translates to :

I am only 15 years old and my rich parents spoil me, this time round they purchased me a Playstation 3 console - at an inflated price as usual. They seem to reward me for my lack of education and poor spelling and grammar. When I am old enough to drive they will probably buy me a Range Rover to start to learn to drive in, this is excellent news as it would be deemed "cool" by all my delinquent friends. I shall be absent for a little while, I must go and post on many other forums to show my good fortune.

End.

That makes me feel better :giggle:

On paper, the Playstation 3 is only slightly more powerful than the Xbox 360. It's up to the developers to use the hardware to it's full potential, which most of the time the developers don't ever do. However I've heard that the Xbox 360 is easier to develop games for.

The Xbox 360 has a huge array of games, and many great exclusive titles. The Playstation 3 at the moment, has about two good games (motorstorm and resistance). With not that many great exclusives coming to it.

Not forgetting the Wii, a 'fun' console. It's aimed at the family, and isn't the console of choice for a person serious about their gaming. Don't get me wrong, it's a good console, but you have it 'as well as' a PS3 or 360, not 'instead of'.

With inevitable price cuts, it will be hard for the PS3 to keep up. In my opinion launch day only saw the 'Sony Fanboys' and the people with too much money to care, buying a console. It just doesn't attract the casual gamer as the other consoles do. Sony are already losing money with each console sold, and I don't think they'd be able to compete price wise with the other two.

But Sony always manage to pull something out of the bag. You just have to wait and see.

This is obviously a very uneducated guess and it's not based on experience, it's simply based on you've purchased a new product, so you hope you've made the right choice but read my post just before yours to see the factual reality.

Sony aren't doing well and there was a press release for the sales figures in america, which proved that the PS3 is being outsold by every gaming format and even a dead handheld console (GBA), which is unheard of and disgraceful for a recently launched machine.

Despite Nintendo being technically inferior with regards to the Nintendo DS vs Sony PSP and Nintendo Wii vs Sony PS3, Nintendo is easily outselling both with both Nintendo products selling more units than any other gaming device on the market and bare in mind there is a worldwide shortage, while most stores have overstocked in Sony products.

Also, as i previously mentioned, Xbox 360 may be inferior with technical ability but it's much better in online gaming, has many quality exclusive games and is even better on the same games available for both consoles, so please explain to me, what is the point in owning a PS3?

Even Sony has resorted to trying to market the PS3 as the cheapest Blue-Ray player on the market and as an additional bonus, "it also plays games."

Think what you will but i knew the PS3 would be a launch flop from the get-go and if Sony doesn't buck up their ideas, it's going to be the biggest flop since the Sega Saturn.

ye but i dont have to pay £40 a year for online so if its free im not that bothered about it not being as goog as an xbox 360.

the point of owning a ps3 is becoz i wanted 1 as it was a new console and i think that it is better than the xbox 360 in some aspects however if i wish 2 play online with friend and family then i normally go on my xbox but if i want better gameplay and realism i go on the ps3- simple if you ask me

Xbox live does add a completely new dimension to the game. I play COD3 most nights on Live and every game is different depending on who you are playing with.....

The PS3 will catch up - each console has its merits. I don't think you can say one is better than the other it all depends on what you want if for...

I must inform you all that it is not my fault that my parents are rich. I say my parents, but, I mean myself. Afterall, it will all be mine one day to waste on general rubbish.

As for the Range Rover, my delinquent friends may think it would be 'cool', but I for one disagree. I shall be asking for a Rolls Royce, like shown in my avatar. I will call it the Rolls, as I tell everyone which car I will be using. This is untill I realise that people think I am an a old man and may have just gone and brought a rover. Still, I will not realise that for a long time yet.

Yes, I understand your points as you should expect. My parents will not have to pay £40 a year for me to use the console online, with the cheats I know so I always win. The fact that it is not as good as the Xbox 360 does not concern me. I shall later render my last statement useless.

There was a very valid reason for myself to own a Playstation 3, this reason was because I wanted one. I personally feel that the Playstation 3 is superior to the Xbox 360 in many respects. However, if my friend or my family wish to play online with me I would normally use my Xbox. If I want more realism I know I should go outside, but instead use my Playstation 3. If you were as great as myself, you would find this simple.

No, I am not 10 years old. In my opinion I am highly advanced for my years, as you can see from my posts. This should be proof enough to anyone with some sene. Please accept this kindly.

I must apologise, if I am rich or well sort of (?). Whatever you wish to call - whatever is in question.

It is upsetting, people that do not like me keep throwing stones. It hurts.



End.

Some parts may be missing or slightly incorrect, had I been paid I would have done a much better job - much like them free translators. You put in english to german "I have a cat, it is fluffy." then translate it back to english and you get some obscene language back - Not suitable for this forum! They add them for fun, I am sure of it.

the ps3 doesnt really have anything over the Xbox 360. (using psp's as wing mirrors in car games is quirky, but Blue ray sucks) A possible re-think if they were to offer us the a machine comparible to the USA/ Japan model but in all honesty its Xbox 360 all the way for me. Bring on its future replacement and I will be there.

Found this in google news about the ps3 though, its the opinions of the Chief Creative Officer over at Insomniac Games (should know what he's talking about) and makes an interesting read.

Out of curiosity I decided to have a read & it became immediately apparent that he's a Sony fanboy no matter how much he argues to the contrary. Muppet!

Yeah you're always going to get a biased opinion on a PlayStation site.

I don't know why, but i feel like posting this link:
