i am not much into consoles, the last console i eva had was the sega 8-bit with cartridge system. (LOL).
but from the articles ive read recently, PS3 appears to be better, not only because of the gaming power, theyve also made it more entertainment media friendly. it is more like a personal cinema + audio system+ a POWERFUUUL GAME system+Internet. people other than gamers, would also wanna have one.
it looks cool too, the silver one.
PS. i wouldnt be surprised if it will cost sumthing like $1200.
BTW, will the Titles for XBOX/XBOX360 run on ps3? and titles of ps2/ps3 run on xbox360?

Xbox 360 solely for the new Perfect Dark, I don't even care if that's the only game I get. Also very interested in Nintendo Revolution as you can download and play any game from NES, SNES and N64 in addition to all Gamecube and Revolution games.

I hate PS3, but the graphics do look amazing. I think the 360 is actually about the same cpu-wise since it is triple core with dual-treading per core and PS3 has 7 single thread cores. PS3 may be just ahead on graphics as the Nvidia solution may be faster, but the 360 does have 48 pipes on a new architecture which may prove to be faster.

Um, sorry for asking, but how can you say that you hate the PS3? You've never even played on one :P it's like saying the next-gen gpu from nvidia will suck before even seeing one... Don't judge before they've both been released!

IMO they're both kind of equal, what the Xbox360 doesn't have in hardware, it makes up in time before the ps3 release. So I'll probably end up getting both.

The design of the xbox360 looks better in my opinion and I just simply love the white xbox controller, whereas the ps3 design really was a let down. But it will make up for it in hardware!

They both have some of the same titles, so graphics wise these games will look the same on the ps3 and the xbox360. The only games that'll look different are the titles coming only for one console, for example MGS4, Halo3, Gran Turismo etc.

But remember, that the release dates of these consoles are "far" away and the companies can still do some changes(I seriously hope that sony will change the controller design).

So the only thing we can do now is wait and enjoy the E3 and summer. Soon enough it'll be winter and you'll have your xbox360s and ps3s

The one thing that scares me the most about pre-release hipe is that some of the official info from these companies can be an out right lie and it does not seem to bother any one. I remember when the Dreamcast hit and on the same day Sony came out saying their PS2 would be 20 to 200 times more powerful because of the emotion engine. So the machine comes out a year later w/ tons of jaggies and Soul Caliber on the DC still smacks PS2 graphics in the head.
Not that that really matters but the people that did not buy a DC because they believed Sony's overly hopeful estimates missed out on some good fun games.
Anyway one thought in my head is just how many pixels are on an HDTV any way and given that number of pixels why do both the Xbox360 and the PS3 have to render like 10 to 50 times that number in real time? Maybe Nintindo is on to something, selling their box on the cheap and still having games look 4 times as good as the current best Xbox games. I have to admit, I would buy that if it was cheap enough.

Seriously, PS3 isn't that all-mighty compared to Xbox360. Most of you don't even realize that the Killzone 2 demonstration wasn't even realtime, right?

Link?



Besides, it's not the things that were pre-rendered that matters but the stuff that they showed that wasn't.

For example: Unreal Tournament 2007 and Fight Night.

you guys do realize that kill zone was very much mostly real time. From my inspections of the hd video of it the onl;y section that doesnt seem real time based on aliasing is the intro on the ships.
