XBOX360 currently has more RPGs announced for it than PS3, and has exclusive support from Mistwalker at this time. In case you haven't heard of Hironobu Sakaguchi, he was the founder of the Final Fantasy series, and he's only on XBOX360 - click on his name and take a look at some of the RPGs he's made, see if you notice any you like.

X360 RPGs:
Lost Odyssey (Mistwalker/Microsoft)
Blue Dragon (Mistwalker/Microsoft)
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Bethesda)
Final Fantasy XI (Square)

That's 2 Japanese RPGs PS3 won't have, and a third RPG that hasn't been announced for it. What RPGs have been annouced for PS3 again?

We'll see in 6 months whether its hype or not. There are already several games which are missing effects on ATI cards. That's not hype then, is it?

Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII is rumored to be coming to the ps3. im not really surprized xbox has more titles announced than ps3 as it will be coming months ahead of the ps3. im sure there will be plenty of games from all genres when ps3 release is next.

im not much of a rpg fan anyways, bring on the fighting games + first person shooters

I'm sure too, just making the statement that there won't be RPGs on X360 is nonsensical when one of the most famous RPG makers of all time is making two RPGs exclusively for it, plus the next in the Elder Scrolls series is coming to it. Hasn't even come out yet and already 3 top tier RPGs announced so far.

thought this was interesting post over at psinext. relates alot to what that article was talking about...

Flop_King-
To clarrify any misinterpretations on the multi-threaded nature of the 3-core XBOX 360 CPU vs. the Cell SPE's, I feel it necessary to point out that while the 360's CPU supports a maximum of 6 threads only 3 threads can be active at one time (one per core). Each core supports two threads but can only be executing ONE thread at any given time. People hear the 6 thread XBOX 360 stat and assume it can execute 6 instruction threads in parallel but this is inaccurate. Now, while two threads are better than one they're not twice as good. Two threads supported on one core is comparable to 1.5 parallel single-threaded cores. This gives XBOX 360 an equivalent to about 4.5 parallel single-threaded cores when FULLY optimized, not 6. Now, the main difference between the 360's architecture and that of the Cell is that the Cell's SPE's ARE designed to run in parallel and independent of one another. This means that the Cell's 7 active SPE's are equivalent to 7 single-threaded parallel cores. 7 vs. 4.5. In this repect the PS3 is over 55% as powerful as the XBOX 360. Just thought a clarrification was a little past due on this topic.
Thanks.
not sure how correct his info is but interesting stuff. its on a playstation site so might be slightly biased but is interesting none the less. from reading it around it may seem that the 360 may be better in the physics department, and ps3 better in the graphics. not saying that the 360's graphics will suck or the ps3's physics will suck but like most talk lately, its just speculation. really depends on how the developers take use of each console when programming.

ok ill shutup the stupid talk

Great, more conjecture on someone who doesn't know anymore than the rest of us about Cell vs Xenon....

what a retarded article
