Default Re: So how does everyone feel about Sony's failure to meet the hype on the PS3?

This is the true fan of a fanboy, the PS3 hardware is in theory, superior to the xbox 360 (the cell, the graphics chip, the ram used). Please compare xbox 360 release games to the ps3 and youll see the same ****. Also, im not a console fanboy, although I do own a GC, xbox and N64 (still has the best games to date).

*incorrect answer sound* the cell theoretically is superior, ram on 360 is 512, ps3 is 256, and the graphics card on the ps3 is equivalent to a g70, where the 360 card is similar config wise to a r600 with features like aa and the such. so please let me know how superior this is, because obviously since the cell is better, graphics are better on the ps3 right? graphics have nothing to do with the gpu/ram. since as evilchris has stated, "the c3ll cU235 cA|\|c32" it is obviously the better console, right?

ignore the sony/fb propaganda and look at the actual hardware specs, programmers have already stated that aa on ps3 taxes the system. where 360 aa is incorporated into the card

actually the ram and graphic chipset is superior on the x360 its already been proven.

But now someone has showed that the cell may be also inferior to the x360's proc.

It's a joke compared to XBL. Sony learned nothing of Microsoft's improvements. Can't download in background? DUH SONY? How long did XBL users ask MS for this? You couldn't come out the gate with it?
Its touches like this, which for me, really sell Xbox live. First demo download I started a whopping 2 weeks ago, I remember thinking "****, but I got a website to finish tonight, Im never going to download this and play some DOA4". Fortunatley I was pleasantly suprised. There is still room for improvement, ie. I'd like to see some standardisation of the game online lobby areas, which all take their own moment of confusion to work out. Yet on the whole I quite like.

IIRC, THP8 is slightly less as well. Still looks sweet ass and is nowhere to be seen on the PS3 though.

But Microsoft said 720P would be the minimum ZOMG!@#

And IIRC... IIRC = If I recall correctly... I very well could be wrong on that one though.

Actually you aren't correct. PS3 has two 256mb pools of ram. 256mb of XDR for Cell/Main memory and 256mb of GDDR3 for RSX. Since the system uses a NUMA architecture RSX can use the 256mb of XDR memory.

How "easy" it is to use Cell's mem is arguable but it can be done.

On a brighter note. I planned on going in to work a little late today(had to take my dad somewhere). While waiting at home I decide to play Resistance. Fire up the PS3 and go to play. I select Campaign and notice I only have a New Game option.....uh oh. XMB comes up and I look at my game save section. The block that used to say Resistance now says Data Corrupted! I don't even feel like playing this **** anymore. I think I got fairly far in the game and now I have to start over. Screw that.

So like I said, I would let you guys know if I come up on any issues. Here is my first official issue with the PS3. Keep in mind I did not do anything out of my normal routine of using the PS3.

This happen to anyone else?

Lol, yes you do that. While you brought that up, the Target by me is supposed to have some Wiis on Sunday. Hopefully I can grab one.

Update on that issue I had. Did a Google search and it seems I'm not the only one who has this problem. It appears that it has only happened to people's Resistance saves. So I'm guessing it is an issue with the game and not the system.

i was referring to the gpu ram, as sony's card has only 256 and 360 has 512.
