online still has some good days, logged on a day last week and there where 10 people online (kinda sucked), its still a fun game by yourself with career mode, or with a couple friends sitting around in vs mode, but if you just like online it isnt really worth it imo

all PS3s have bluray i thought, my older 120gb ps3 has one

Didn't they say that they were losing money selling this thing at $600 a few years back? Looks like coming in last in console sales (even being beat out by their own PS2) is a good way to force a little innovation.

the old ps3 120gb played them, ive got around 60 ps2 games all but a couple of them worked, codebreaker wont work though if you cheat with ps2

i have a friend argueing with me right now that not all PS3s play ps2, that doesnt make sense to me but just incase i posted it

had to change mine is/was the old 80gb one, however i burnt the 80gb drive out before i got a external fan and i went out and put a 320gb seagate hardrive in it, and incase anyone ever burns out a hardrive after the warranty expires, its super easy to change any laptop 2.5 SATA drive can be swapped into it by i removable plastic tap on your ps3, 1 screw that holds the drive in and swap it

They have always lowered price and re-designed since the PS1.

I've got UFC 2009 for the Xbox. I like it, but I don't think it's got much long-lasting appeal to me. I'm debating returning it to GameStop so I can buy the new Wolfenstein video game. Besides, I'm enjoying Fight Night Round 4 much better :)

Do yourself a favor and go rent the game for a few days before you decide if you want to pay $50 bucks on it (I guess $50 on the PS3?)

They said they were losing money by selling it for 600$ and that they would lose money if they dropped it to compete with the xbox 360. The problem is nobody was interested in the system. The Wii was selling 3 times as many systems, Xbox was selling twice as many and the DS was selling as many as Sonys Ps3.

The sad part is the Ps1 and the Ps2 for years were outselling their next gen system. Even their Psp is selling more still then the console.

Well I have it and have enjoyed the game although the loading on Career mode can be a little tedious.

Playing with friends is good.

I have enjoyed the Online play although i have played for 3 months so as im abroad so i have no idea how it is.

Other than when i played online, it was great and long lasting WHEN it went smoothly.

I probably got pulled outta 50 fights normally that i was winning for reasons unknown to me, so that can be a real bother.

If you have the $$$, i'd get it

I've played the UFC game a bit and found it really fun. We played after UFC 101 and immediately after the fights the mat in the Octagon on the game had changed it's adds to read "Couture vs Nogueira" thought that was sweet.
Hughes (as in real life) is a total badass on the game. Worth getting and punishing the rest of the division.

08-28-2009, 02:47 AM
as consoles get older they always go down in price. but the elite has no advantages over the PS3 slimline... they both have 120GB HDD and they are both now 299.99. the PS3 has always been the more powerful console anyways, plus it is a blu ray player, free online play and more games (when you include tons of PS1 and PS2 game compatibility) it wins easily

another cool thing about the PS3 is that you can swap HDD's very easily and for very cheap. you can buy a 500GB HDD for $95 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136314

PS3 more powerful? since when? look at the graphics on both consoles hte games look just as good on either.

And online play sucks on the ps3 compare to the xbox... play the online part of a game on a ps3 then play the exact game on the 360... its night and day, 360 has way less lag and way more people...

The ps3 has always been claiming its more powerful, but to be honest you never see it. When you compare both games graphically they look identical, and when one is better then the other 9 times out of 10 its the 360. Also when comparing the same game side by side the 360's run smoother then the Ps3 version.

Blu Ray means nothing in terms of gaming, the storage of it isnt put to use, and it does not deliver a better picture of the game. As with B R itself, if your not supporting the hardware for it. Its pointless.

More games? actually the 360 has the better library. As for Ps1 and Ps2 games. The slim is not backwards compatible so how you going to play your Ps1 and 2 games on it.

Ms has the better online play, the better online store. While older games seem to die out in Ps3 version of online, they are still very populated in the 360's online play. Ms doesnt cost that much a year if you can find deals on the game cards. I bought a couple for 30$ a pop and whats that like 2.50 a month lol.

you're comparing a free service to a paid one, its pretty silly.

No blu ray player with an xbox, so you're not watching anything in HD on it.

That article kind of underestimates the price difference. $50 cheaper is still a lot of money. Especially when the Wii comes with a game included. So for about $300, you could either get a PS3 with no games, or a Wii with at least 2 games (1 included and 1 or more with the extra $50). That still sounds like a great deal to me.

That's why they include a wrist strap. :laugh:

Also, the way the Wii is set up, you don't have to place the remote sensor bar directly in front of your TV; so you can keep it out of throwing range. Plus, I highly doubt that the plastic Wii remote would put a hole in a standard CRT (cathode ray tube) television screen.

Yep, the big heavy box TV's with the glass screens are called CRT's.

Just put the television on top of a dresser or something. That's what Mark does with his Wii system, this way if the boys get too rowdy and toss the remote, it will most likely just hit the front of the dresser not the television.

Also, the Wii's on the market right now have a rubber grip included with the remote, which is designed to make it harder to accidentally throw and also to cushion the impact of whatever it might hit.

$ 30.00 a year which breaks down to practically nothing. When you consider gaming to be nothing more then a hobby. Its a pretty damn cheap hobby. Besides if you estimate the price I can buy a game card, with the price of the expensive Ps3 and its free online. It still takes me over 3+ years to equal out the cost.

I didn't buy a "Gaming" system to watch movies I pay to game. I already mentioned that Blu Ray is an epic failure in regards to games in general.

Xbox came out to try and establish itself in a market dominated by Nintendo and Sony. From a long term business strat it actually worked out in their favor. Xbox owners moved to the 360 and the Xbox was phased out.

Look at the other end with Sony, every month its elite, highend, more wiser investment has been outsold by its lesser systems.Not only that but every Nintendo product and the 360 still outsells it.

Not sure exactly how much I pay a year but i think its like 60$? So if you can have a choice of 2 icecream cones one is 2$ and the other one is free... but the free one has dog poop in it... which one is the better choice? haha

And the Xbox can play HD movies just fine... You can rent movies through XBL or you can stream content from your TV. (the old Xbox could steam HD content aswell you just have to MOD it).

And How the heck is the ps3 going to last longer? compairing it with the life of the ps1 or ps2 or any other console is TOTALY useless because technology has advanced ALOT in the last 10 years as far as cpu/gpu power goes.



Dont get me wrong the ps3 is a good blueray player and its fine for gaming aslong as you dont want to play online,dont mind the huge loading times and really REALLY want to play the desolving list of PS exclusive games.

Dont get me wrong I dont like hating on sony... but the xbox is a FAR better buy as far as gaming goes. I've played both systems extensivly... studied thier architecture in school.

When Sony took the stage at E3 following the year after its release the head of Sony gaming said that to compete with the Wii and Xbox 360 that they didn't have to rely on gimmicks and multiple Ps3 to sell their system like the 360 had done, but with only 1 system.

They did the same thing with the rumble feature they scrapped it said that it was last gen, then they brang it back.

Really there was a bunch of reasons why the N64 and Gamecube failed. The main reason was the coding aspect, at the time it was a nightmare to code a Nintendo game, while the Dreamcast and Playstation were easier to learn. Its still a nightmare to code for now because of the motion design, and why it has trouble picking up 3rd party support.

A couple other reasons were the graphics and that it went the route of the more casual gamer, while systems since then til now have aimed at the more hardcore gamer.

The Dvd wars were a joke and nothing more and I could care less about the Blu Ray. When I sat down to purchase a gaming console I wanted the biggest bang for my buck and not the flashy useless junk.

As it stands now the 360 still has the better price tag $200, $250 and $300. Not to mention the $300 elite comes with 2 top games for the 360 in Fable2 and Halo 3. While the $300 Ps3 comes with nothing including 0 backwards compatibility.

Around my den it goes Wii ( the female friends love this thing, and so do I when they are dressed for it =P ) the guys all go for the 360. Nobody touches the Ps3 except when Killzone 2 and MG came out lol.

the only reason that i didn't get the xbox, was that people told me that it breaks down a lot ... i had a couple of buddies that were on their secnd and thrd consoles ... not that i game a lot, but i didn't want something breaking down ... is it true or blown out of proportion??? any xboxer want to comment ... have you had any issues?

I only know one person that had thiers break. And I know like 30plus people who have them. But I do know the red ring thing was an issue when they first came out havent really heard anything about it in a long time.

depends how much you play it, ive got 1 friend who has been through 3 360s, but he plays all day long when hes off work, have a couple other friends whose broke to, but mine hasnt had any trouble, but i use my ps3 far more than my 360, and as far as it being better or worse than 360 i cant tell a difference between the 2 with loading times or online play other than my ps3 online is free most games are still goin strong online, i havent seen a ps3 not backward compatible yet (if you buy one that doesnt come with it, its a free download from the ps3 site)

i bought my xbox360 at best buy and for a extra $35 i added the instore warranty for 2 years the way i understand the warranty is if anything goes wrong with it short of me throwing it out a window, bring it in and exchange it for a new one without all the calling xbox getting your consoles coffin mailing it off and waiting for the repair

The Dvd wars were a joke and nothing more and I could care less about the Blu Ray. When I sat down to purchase a gaming console I wanted the biggest bang for my buck and not the flashy useless junk.

As it stands now the 360 still has the better price tag $200, $250 and $300. Not to mention the $300 elite comes with 2 top games for the 360 in Fable2 and Halo 3. While the $300 Ps3 comes with nothing including 0 backwards compatibility.




Well, you mean couldn't care less, but i would say the ability to watch movies at home in HD isn't flashy useless junk, and a lot of people care about that sort of thing, even if you do not.

I am not arguing that at first the 360 is a better price,
but tag on 5 years worth of xbox live at 50 a year, thats 250 more,
plus buying a blu ray player if you own movies, thats hundreds, etc....
Not to mention Microsoft is going to put out new systems more often, etc...
The playstation is a smarter buy.

Even if yours hasn't had a problem,
you cannot deny they do have problems.

Its like buying a crappy car and defending it as a smart purchase because you don't need cruise control, and even if it costs more in the long run its better, and yours certainly hasn't broken down.

Ps3 is going to last longer, costing less by far in the long run
ps3 cuts out the cost of a blu ray player
ps3 is much more reliable

You can't argue numbers, the xbox costs more in the long run,

I already told you that the game cards are cheap if you can find the deal and nab a few at the right time. I payed either 30 or 35. I have never paid any more then that. So my price of online play + the cost of the machine still equal better then the Ps3. An what about the game library. It took the Ps3 a couple years to actually put out a game worth playing.

If you look at gaming like a hobby 30-50 a year is actually a cheap hobby. Compare it to World of Warcraft which is 16 a month. Which is 200 a year. Compare it to fishing or hunting which is way more expensive for basically little time.

Thats because their loyalty is stronger with Nintendo and Sony then it is with Xbox. Your talking over 35+ years for Nintendo if you count their very first system. If you want to start this timeline with the original Nintendo then its 20 years. The Playstation was released in 94 so thats 15 years of building a relationship with their fan base. Meanwhile the Xbox was released in 01, giving them only 8 years. Not to mention the first Xbox didnt do to well over in Asia as well. They had their Nintendo and their Ps2 as well as hand helds,

The Wii is a casual gimmick based off technology that failed for nintendo back in 89. Its geared to casual gamers and children. Almost all third party support avoids Nintendo to this day.

You talk about B.R and everyone wants it. Its clear Asia doesnt give a crap about it. Its clear that they dont care that the PsP can play movies either. Its not a selling feature to them as well.

You talk about Xbox online, then again its pulling in 20million + users a year as of June 09. How many is PS network pulling in as of June. Its free so everyone huh, well usually not the case. SO whats the number. I do know 24mil are out there and only 7mil downloaded Home lmao.

RAM: xbox > ps3
GPU: xbox > ps3
Memory Read/Acces Speed: xbox >>>>> ps3
CPU: xbox ? ps3

The only thing the ps3 technicaly has on the ps3 is CPU speed because of its 7 cores the 360 only has 3.

BUT the achatecture on the 360 isn't bottle necked like the ps3 because the ps3 uses its cores to do EVERYTHING physics, graphics, sound etc.

and here is a link for you that compares the proccessing power of the 360 vs the ps3
http://www.pcvsconsole.com/comparisons/xbox-360-vs-ps3-gpu/

look at the spec sheet you can clearly see that the 360 is actualy a fair bit more powerful in alot of areas because of the achitecture of the ps3 is bottlenecked and doesnt use its cores as well as it should...

Anyways... have fun with playing your PS3 theres nothing wrong with liking it. Just stick to the facts man haha. If you like your PS3 thats cool! I might buy one too if im ever in the market for buying a bluray player. But asfar as a gaming system goes the 360 is statisticaly a better choice. The only downside for some people is that you have to pay for the online part... but if you really look at what you get its not alot of money... the online interface and multiplayer is 1000000000 times better on the 360 than the ps3 and theres no denying that dude.

I dare you to play a game of COD4 or somthing on both systems and tell me the ps3 version is better... the load times between levels are like 2 minutes long on the ps3, theres more lag on the ps3, and there isnt nearly as many games going on....

Heres a challenge for you... from now on any facts you claim I want a link to a reputable website proving your claims... If you can do that with everyone of your statements I'll get off your case haha

The Xbox has an ethernet port that lets you run a line from your system to the router/modem. The graphics look the same, only difference is things like game maps are different because its popular to have huge tournaments. So in single player mode there could be 4 maps total, but when you go online there is a total of 10. Then publishers are always releasing more.

The purpose is you can play with friends where ever they are, no more old days of bringing over 3 systems or having friends over til all hours. Not only that but you can play other people. When you think about it the games are more bang for your dollar. You can play single player or go online and play with 12-32 others. Not to mention there is always content update. SO your stretching the games experience even further,

You cannot deny the launch time of the xbox and then the 360,
it lasted 4 years lol, how can you argue?
Sony intends to keep the ps3 for 10.
Microsoft is already working on the 360 replacement.
Ill link when im off work.

again, you can download movies to it,
but you certainly cannot buy HD movies, own them, and watch them on your xbox now can you?

again, when I said replace it more often, I was talking about the amount of time that microsoft is waiting before releasing a new console. I am aware that electronics come with a warranty.

I also did not say that the ps3 was without problems,
but they are nowhere near the returns and problems the 360 has had.
These aren't outlandish claims, they are facts.
More 360's had to be returned and fixed than any other console.

Actually regular Dvds are still the standard considering more homes have a 10 dollar dvd player then they do 600 dollar Ps3. Like I said the only people who care the Ps3 has Blu Ray are those fanatics grasping at straws to an inferior product. Games made for both platforms sells better on the 360, run better on the 360. The 360 exclusives sell better, look better, run better are given better reviews.

Creating a relationship with a fan base goes a long way. Sony was able to do that fairly quickly when they won the rights to Final Fantasy and Metal Gear. Two huge Nintendo franchises. Nintendo on the other hand kept Mario, Zelda and Metroid, which has always had a huge cult following. Both systems main titles also had devekoped a huge fan base in the states as well.

Xbox on the other hand did not. It jumped into the scene with a new game HAlo which overnight seemed to bring the masses to the system. Then they released the first Xbox like which once again grew popularity. Halo 2 as well as Halo 2 online seem to cause the Xbox to peak. A bunch of other games did help along the way but its felt Halo and online brang it into contention.


Anyways which chart you referencing your # off of. This chart says Euro has sold more 360's

It really has nothing to do with prediction, we go with what we know,
and what a company tells us its plans are.
What else can you go with?

The past has taught us that Sony keeps its product out longer,
and based on what Microsoft has said, this trend will continue.

I never said you cannot watch ANY hd movies on your 360,
I said you can't watch one that you own, You cannot buy one in the store,
and pop it in your 360. Are you saying your computer is a BR player?
Thus my other arguement comes into play, you have to own a BR player.

If you're talking about streaming them from online,
good luck finding HD quality movies for free,
and not only that, but you're then taking up your television and your computer to complete one task.
But on the most important note, why on earth would you go from your PC, to your xbox, to your tv?
When any HD tv I have ever seen can hook up to your PC directly, you would just shoot straight from PC to Television and watch.

The point wasn't the actual number, the point is they have a high failure rate.
You cannot argue the point. Your own link says 360 at 16, and Sony at 3 percent, thats 360 failing 4x as much as Sony, thats a LOT more

Also, you cannot argue the point that Sony products have lasted longer than Microsoft ones in the past,
and most likely will again.

This argument is tiring, you're clearly happy shelling out more money over a longer period of time for a product you cannot modify without voiding your warranty and you don't care about owning HD movies at home, *shrug*

Its pretty clear you like 360 titles and online better,
and I like PS3 customer service / upgrading, modding better.
Mixed with BR player and I am a happy camper.
I enjoy owning movies and being able to watch them in HD at home.
I will admit though that I am FAR from a "gamer", I have always been a Sony fan, and like the games I have for it.
(I pointed out the gamer thing, because all the stuff about online, etc.. means nothing to me as a customer,
if I wanted online gaming and everything crazy I would just be a PC gamer)

Agree to disagree.

The point wasn't the actual number, the point is they have a high failure rate.
You cannot argue the point. Your own link says 360 at 16, and Sony at 3 percent, thats 360 failing 4x as much as Sony, thats a LOT more

Also, you cannot argue the point that Sony products have lasted longer than Microsoft ones in the past,
and most likely will again.

This argument is tiring, you're clearly happy shelling out more money over a longer period of time for a product you cannot modify without voiding your warranty and you don't care about owning HD movies at home, *shrug*

Its pretty clear you like 360 titles and online better,
and I like PS3 customer service / upgrading, modding better.
Mixed with BR player and I am a happy camper.
I enjoy owning movies and being able to watch them in HD at home.

hahaahhahahahah do you even read what the articles say about the xbox failure rate??? those numbers are from a pole a magazine did 5000people submitted to an online pole... and most of them are probably ps nuhuggers :tongue0011:

THE ACTUAL failure rate is about 13% (16% a year ago http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3166259).. there are hundreds of sites giving different numbers... all three sites you posted have differnt numbers... so how do you find that accurate at all?

dude get over your "the PS will outlast the XBOX" WHO THE HECK KNOWS!!! NO ONE!!!! not even you hahaha argue about somthing valid! I love a good argument but stop repeating yourself!!! or I'm going to start replying to all your posts "I KNOW YOU ARE BUT WHAT AM I" haha :frantics:

Xbox just anounced the release of Natal... when that technology will garantee the loonnnng stock life for the system. And because you probably dont keep up with technology... heres a linky for you :laugh: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2qlHoxPioM

Wana know whats new with the PS... its smaller now... :frantics:

AWESOME!!!!!!!! PS.... if you had a 360 I would be giving you a serious beatdown in UFC undesputed right now! hahaha :punch:

Plus its from Game Informer the most hated worthless magazine in the gaming world.

I heard some of the things Natal could do and if it pans out as is expected it would totaly destroy the Wiis motion sensor tech and most likely ruin anything Nintendo tries in the coming years.

This really got my curiosity going.

natal looks amazing but what will the price be?


btw atom, i believe newer 360's have the kinks worked out...for example, mine was bout last june of 2008...I haven't experienced a single problem, my roommate from last year bout his ps3 at the same time and went through 3 of them last schoolyear alone, and i played more than him....I see your point on owning a dvd and using the blu ray, but I have HD torrents of movies that i watch on my xbox through my computer, and i don't pay 25 bucks a movie......I'm a gamer when it comes to the consoles, not a movie watcher or anything, i bought a VIDEO GAME system to play VIDEO GAMES, and i have played games on my roommates ps3, and it took forever to load and froze right in the middle of a match...i feel imo i got the best system...btw, im not biased to either side, i was a proud Ps2 owner before my xbox
