ps3 vs xbox! A sensible debate

faevilangel Avatar
6y, 1m agoPosted 6 years, 1 month ago
There was a very nice post the other day, which turned into a major fanboy love fest so why not have a debate which doesn't go with "my console is better than yours".

Ps3 Pro's

Better exclusives (my opinion)
Free online game play
Bluray player
in-built wifi & bluetooth
future proof gaming

PS3 cons

more expensive than a xbox360
warranty from sony is hit and miss
long initial loading time for games
lots of game updates

Xbox360 Pro's

cheaper
better online play
more games available
Long warranty on older models (RROD)
online content (sky sports etc)
easy to modify for 'downloaded games'

Xbox360 Cons

loud & unreliable (especially older models)
lack of features (wifi, bluetooth) (on older models)
expensive to upgrade (HDD, wifi) (on older models)
lack of great exclusives

That's all that I can think of at the moment, as you can see I have tried to be impartial.

I have owned 2 360's and one PS3 and will be buying my second PS3 in the next few weeks. I am buying the ps3 due to it's feature list and it's exclusives. The xbox is a good console (loved mine) but the PS3 has more of what I want at the moment.

The slim has Wifi (xbox 360) and the new slim is also very silent.

Why have a sensible debate, it's as pointless as a fanboy war.

You know I really can't stand those childish 'inb4' comments.

The thing is that is the reason I bought the 360's, as all my work mates have a 360 but I have got bored of the online gaming and want to play more offline, and the PS3 offers the better games for that.

I like both of mine and will be selling neither (both slims) :)

I will do (_;) ... I only sold my first xbox due to it going bang, then bought a ps3, sold that when gt5 was delayed so got another 360 but sold that when I needed the ££ to get me a laptop. If I could afford it and had the time, I would have both... :D

Both Slims, alright for people rolling in it, my PH fats are fine.

Though I wouldn't sell either unless I upgraded which I wouldn't unless they died. (PS3 60gb and Xbox Elite)

Currently playing through God of War 2 awaiting to drool at God of War 3.

My only disagreement would be your point about exclusives as you said you prefer PS3 ones but I prefer 360 ones. But as you say that is all down to personal taste.

I've not had a 360, but I did a bit of research when I was deciding which console to buy. For me, the blu ray drive on the ps3 makes it the winner. Also I play most of my games online, so having free online play also helps....

I have had a lot of problems with my PS3 in terms of its connection to the internet and updates, can be very frustrating at times.

I found that with mine, it's one of those things if they made it more bearable, the ps3 would be a much better experience.

Blur and just got Battlefield Bad Company 2 for it. (I mainly use the 360 online but i'm about to join in on the PS3)

Haven't bought a ps3 yet, as I still have around 15 games that I have untouched on the xbox 360 due to being busy, so it wouldn't be worthwhile getting a ps3 just for it to collect dust too.

The PS1/PS2/PS3 Joypad gives most people cramp and is useless for FPS's

I think the 360 pro section is a bit misleading
You have online content but not on the PS3, I would say VidZone and BBC iplayer free for everyone is better than Sky Player, as you still have to subscribe. PS3 is getting 4OD and LoveFilm soon too. just my opinion.

Not something I have looked into, so new to me... Thanks..

I don't think exclusives is a pro or con for either console, they both have their share of them and I don't find either console better in that regard. It's clearly daft to write 'in my opinion' then claim to be trying to be impartial when you've just stated you're not. For anyone considering a 360 now most of the cons you've listed are pretty much irrevelent as well.

The main reason I tend to use a 360 over a PS3 is simply the control pad as I find the design of the 360 controller more comfortable and its analogue sticks/triggers to be better designed. However I don't limit myself to either console (have two of each) and hence I find a vs thread pointless particularly as there's other more important factors such as which consoles your friends own and similar. There's no point buying a 360 to play online with your friends if they all own PS3s regardless of what advantages the 360 offers nor buying a PS3 for its free online play when you only want to play Zelda.

I had an xbox and got a ps3 instead.

i agree multi-platform games look better on the xbox, but ps3-exclusives look better than xbox-exclusives in my opinion. GTA 4 especially looks very ropey on ps3.

but I switched to the ps3 because it has the more complete entertainment package, which is what I wanted now, rather than just wanting a games console before.

although the ps3 has better capabilities graphically xbox games tend to win on graphics with multi platformers.

Doesn't do anything to my hands.
But of course if you use anything for a long period of time then you will get painful hands, for example texting, playing games, masturbating etc.

What's wrong with the Bluetooth? It's perfectly fine and has a great range.
