I did my best to understand most of that...

I still think that there are variables that IGN didn't notice. I don't know what exactly, but some of their stats just seem to lean wayyyyyyy too much to the X360

I think if you asked the PS3 IGN guys they'd tell you the PS3 is more powerful.

But to be perfectly blunt, no one at IGN is really a techie. Have you read some of the video card reviews? They're an exercise in containing your laughter.

No, that's microsofts oppinion. If you'd read the entire article that much would have been clear.

to be honest I think both consoles have plenty of power to do what they need. It's gonna come down to individual games on the system.

ALmost 90% of the article is wrong... Hard to to know where to start..They got it right in very rare cases.. Simply look at Microsoft campaing.. they prase that GAmes is what matters .. SOny praise the power of their console. Nintendo in the other hand they praise wireless and creativity new ways of gaming... Just looks at what they praise and you will see Truth..

in the Fx times.. Nvidia praised the features and ATi their Dx9 performance for comparison.

As Vagrant said, the difficulty in containing laughter is exposing itself here in legion.

Yeah, that's what I think to a certain degree. If it's just comparing specs on paper and one is less powerful than the other, then I don't think it'll matter much. It'll just be the games on each that determine sales. But, if the PS3 is released a lot later than the Xbox 360 and doesn't improve on the graphics, etc. I think that would be a mistake and could hurt sales somewhat. If you're going to release later than your competitor, I think things should be improved so that the wait was worthwhile.

xbox360 and ps3 offer similar power. anyone who tells you otherwise either way is pulling one over on you.

Much in the same way the X800Pro offers similar power to the GT.

well, more like the x800xl and the 6800GT, except in this case the ati r500 core in the xbox360 has more features than the g70 core in the PS3. So I'd say comparitively the xbox360 is like the next gen 6800GT while the PS3 is like the next gen x800xl. They both have similar power, but the xbox360 has more features. In the end though I think both will look similar, at best the difference between xbox and gamecube, probably with x360 with the edge since it looks easier to get the full potential out of.

The first generation of games is going to come down to which hardware vendor can get the best SDK out to their tier ones sooner. Right now the XBOX 360 Dev Kit is in the Alpha stage...which doesn't give me all that much confidence in the games that will be available in November. Even Halo 3 will probably take until Spring.

From what I've read, the PS3 Dev Kit is a little further along. Good for them, bad for Microsoft.
