  1. PROS:

    PS3 –

    1. Free Online

    2. Full 1080p resolution

    3. Built In Blu Ray

    4. Cheaper HardDrives to Add

    5. Comes with a USB device to charge your Controller.

    6. Internet Browser

    7. Home and Life come Free, both in BETA but have a lot of potential.


    1. Netflix.

    2. 3 year warranty


    PS3 –

    1. New PS3’s can’t play PS2 games

    2. 1 year warranty

    3. Cost $150 to fix it if passed your 1 year warranty.

    Xbox360 –

    1. 33% fail rate meaning you can’t play it and if you want to fix it you have to send it to microsoft for them to fix it and you will get it back approx. 2 WEEKS and has 33% of it failing again [PS3 has 0.2%]

    2. Pay for online gaming $50 a year

    3. Have to buy many add ons

    4. Buy a recharger for controllers.

  2. PS3 – The best one is ps3.

    ps3 has a built-in blu-ray player

    -ps3 supports 1.3 HDMI which has rich colors and xbox supports 1.2 HDMI

    – ps3 has much more and better exclusives, most of them cant go to xbox 360 because it cant handle that many data(DVD- 8.5gb, blu-ray 50gb)

    – because of the blu-ray’s huge space, ps3 will have WAY better graphics than 360

    – online is free for ps3 not like 360

    – you can browse the internet on ps3, no such thing for xbox 360

    – when developers get used to the system, the graphics will be WAY better than 360. should take them a year to get used to it

    – developers stated that they will start using ps3 as the lead platform and port ps3 games to xbox

    – playstation home, its a virtual community where you can hang out with friends and customize your own apartment which xbox doesnt have(FREE)

    – ps3 is a true HD console. xbox 360 upscale games to 1080p and ps3 DISPLAY games up to 1080p

    – built in Wi-Fi

    – xbox 360: 33% hardware failure

    ps3:.2% hardware failure(see the decimal? less than 1%!)

    – you can upgrade your harddrive without voiding warranties with any 2.5 HDD, which xbox cant because you have to buy a xbox HDD

    (they actually have the step by step on how to upgrade it on playstation.com)

    those are the ones that i know right off my mind but there are much more reason than this

    Now I want you to do me a favor, list all the reasons why xbox is better than ps3. I PROMISE you that nobody will get at least 5 reasons

    Prices as of today:

    160gb ps3 $499.99 with uncharted drakes fortune

    80gb: $399

    xbox 360(premium)- $199.99

    (elite)- $299.99

    if you want the accessories that xbox 360 comes with, that would add up to over 650 dollars, so that means ps3 is actually cheaper

    Let’s compare PS3 and XBOX 360:

    1). A third of XBOX 360 (33%) are malfunctioning right from the start. PS3 return rate is only around 0.2%. Despite some people say, that new 360 has no breakdown issues – just visit Xbox section of Yahoo answers and see for yourself an amount of complaints.

    2). PS3 has 8 (7+1) kernels in Cell processor, Xbox 360 -only 3.

    3). PS3 uses advanced tech called Blu-Ray, one disc can store up to 54 gb (in the future – up to 200 gb), Xbox 360 – regular dual layer DVD-9 (8.5GB). It’s possible to get HD-DVD (max. – 30GB) for 360, but it’ll cost you around 180$, in this case Xbox is going to be MUCH more expensive, than PS3.

    4). Calculations per sec – PS3 – 51-billion-dot-product-operati. per second

    Xbox 360 – 33.6-billion-dot-product-opera. per second

    5). PS3 has full media support – USBs, built-in 2 slots card reader (except 20GB and 40GB versions), ability to use printer and so on.

    Xbox 360 has USBs and only 2 memory slots.

    6). PS3 supports up to 7 Bluetooth Controllers

    Xbox 360 – up to 4 Controllers

    7). PS3 – wi-fi included (except 20 gb version)

    Xbox 360 – wi-fi will cost you around 100 $

    8). Graphics are stronger in PS3, due to RSX chip, that was developed by Nvidia exclusively for PS3. RSX runs on 550 Mhz. It’s difficult to compare their graphics chips, because 360 has a video chip with totally different structure and operating memory is divided differently in both consoles. However, PS3 exclusives look better than 360’s exclusives.

    9). PS3 uses technology from AGEIA company. It does to physics of the game same thing GPU (videocard processor) does to graphics. This thing is on sale for PC(special card). The price is around 350$. There is no such thing in 360.

    10). Xbox 360 is widely known for so-called “red ring of death” problem – it gets overheated easily. My PS3 was running for more than 15 hours non-stop with no problems. Sometimes Xbox 360 becomes so overheated, that thermopaste on CPU melts, drips on motherboard and successfully shortcircuits it. That’s why in some countries people call Xbox 360 “Coffin 360”.

    11). Besides all of this, I’ve seen disassembled Xbox 360 – regular PC architecture – Billy Gates is an uninventive nerd (as usual).

    When I saw disassembled PS3 – it was a surprise – smart architecture, good cooling (don’t buy external PS3 coolers – they make everything worse – original system is good), etc.

    12). [url is not allowed].

    13). PS3 online is free, Xbox 360 – you have to pay.

    14). There were reports, that 360 scratches discs. No reports on that in PS3.

    15). The funniest thing, that right now there are no games for PS3, that show full potential of the console. Biggest games weigh only 25 GB (Xbox 360 will need more than 3 discs even for those).

    16). On PS3 you can install other OS, such as Linux Yellow Dog, Ubuntu and others. Sony officially lets you do it. There is no such thing in 360.

    17). PS3 HDD can be replaced easily with any 2.5″ SATA 5400 which is used in laptops

    My friend had Xbox 360 he loved it, & guess what it got the Red Rings of Death within 6 months.

  3. Dont listen to Rage Monkey, PS3 is the best, and you can also download content before you buy a game, its called a demo.

    PS3 doesnt have RROD, and you dont have to pay like $100 for online like the 360.

    PS3 has the best hardware, its also a supercomputer

    xbox is just a waste of money, they might cost $200 but you’ll pay more for them with all the accesories you HAVE to get, PS3 IS THE BETTER CONSOLE!

  4. I have both I think the ps3 is better because you can get demos just like on the xbox and its free plus blueray.internet browser.free online.great graphics.the ps3 doesent even BEGIN to use the power its capable of and the ps3 is just begining

    The ps3 has a lower rate of failure and it’ll be along LONG after the 360

    and.it just looks sexy lol

  5. research it and type it in a search for questions this question has been asked very much times.

    And i think you should go with Playstation 3 cause i have one and my cousin has a 360 playstation 3 will have a bright a bright future with the new blue ray compatibilty xbox 360 it at its full potential but xbox is better beacuse it has been out for a long time and playstation just came out.

    So If ur cheap get a 360

    You want good hdmi quality ps3

  6. xbox and xbox 360 is like a gamer computer for idiots, IMO

    i would check out the games and get the one that seems to have more titles you like, given the same games i would go with the ps3 as its better tech IMO

  7. 1 word ps3.come on its the best system out there with sooo mucch stuff, better games, dosent overheat , maybe in like 10 hours and yea. get ps3.

  8. Read this article. Very unbiased, as up-to-date as it can possibly be. This is all you need.
