Default Funny how the 360 is the more expensive next gen console

I find it quite hilarious that people are ripping Sony for the PS3. It is at least as powerful as the 360, and once the programmers get the hang of it I suspect more powerful. Sure, it may be 200 bucks more for the 60GB version, but it has a Blu Ray player built in. More over, in the latest Perfect Vision magazine it is considered one of the best Blu Ray players on the market; cost not considered. Now take the 360. It has no HDMI. Big strike for all of you videophiles. Then, it has a measly 20GB hard drive. Now the insult, in a lot of online websites, its DVD (not even HD DVD) player is one of the worst they have ever seen. I can attest to this personally; it is awful.

Now the kicker, MS knows that eventually Sony is going to take hold and kick their ars. So, they are now releasing a 360Ultra (Nvidia....you can sue) with a 120 GB hard drive and HDMI. How nice of them. They only want 479 dollars. Boy, that is cheaper than the PS3, but what about the early adopters. They are SOL. Morevoer, the 120 GB hard drive is going to be sold independently for around 150 - 200 bucks.

So, let us calculate this. A HD DVD add on for 200 bucks. The larger add on for 150 bucks (lets give MS a break). The core premium system for 399 bucks. That tally is over 750 bucks for a non-HDMI capable system....nice

So, to all you naysayers, the PS3 is going to win. I own both and like my 360. However, the PS3 on a 1080P capable television via HDMI is better. Once the games come out that emphasize the PS3 and not the 360; I surmise 18 months then you will see the PS3 developed for first and the 360 second.

BTW, Blu Ray is kicking HD DVD's ars and anyone who is not biased can really appreciate this. These PS3 is dead threads are laughable. The same shiat was spewed about the 360 when it first hit the market. BTW, the Wii is a Gamecube with a f__cked up control....it is butt ugly to look at.

It's all about choice.

360 you have some, the PS3 you do not.

And the fact remains, games out on both systems are still performing and looking better overall on the 360.

So much for value.

Any true home theater enthusiast knows that HDMI is an inferior interface.

PS3 owner trying to convince himself that he didn't make the wrong choice?

I feel for you. Read this article about the ps3's console death spiral

http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=37773

No worries, you have yourself an excellent Blue Ray player there--I hear Deep Blue is out on Blue Ray

You idiot.

It's called the 360 Elite not the 360 Ultra. Besides, Nvidia couldn't sue for something that stupid.

Well as you know evilchirs, without HDMI out (in this case) we can't pass lossless audio to our receivers.

Hey, I'm an early adopter, and guess what... I don't need HDMI or a bigger HDD, I have 11gb free on my 20gb hdd, so how am I SOL? I also don't need a HD-DVD player, and if I had a PS3, I wouldn't need the BD player either, so I'd be paying extra for nothing.

I'll go enjoy my games now while you're crying that you can't hook your 360 to your tv with an HDMI cable.

HDMI is just as good as DVI but DVI is something that the 360 doesn't have either. In that respect HDMI is better then component.

my 360 was $400 and it plays all the same games and outputs 1920x1200 resolution via a VGA cable on my 2407.

just cause their second revision with a 120GB hard drive is going to be more than a PS3 youre like "OMG, M$ IZ T3H SUX0RRZ!!!". then you say the Wii is a POS because its ugly and has "****ed up control"?

here i have something for you......



check out the link in my sig. youll see that your "M1Gh7Y PS3" is not as great as sony told you it was. its debatable as to whether or not Gears of War will even run on the PS3.

you know what the funniest part is, is that the "PS3 is dead" thread was actually a thread posted by a guy telling ppl that his PS3 died and he was sending it back for repairs and was asking for some comments/suggestions. the dude actually owns a PS3. so this thread that you created is pointless, and merely wasting space.

way to go!
