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

I'm still trying to figure out how $479 is more than $499 and $599. I mean...carry the one...multiply by Avogadro's number...then take the quotient of that number divided by Pi to the power of the square root of the number of miles per gallon a Ford Mustang gets and...

Nope.


$479 is still less than $499.

Oh, and it's malarky.

So why don't you make like a tree and get outta here.

$479 is still less than $499.
The math is pretty simple from where I'm sitting:
PS3+BluRay+HDMI = $599 or even $499 you pick
Xbox360+HDDVD+HDMI = $479+$199 = $678

Both systems offer equal options, but as MS proponents will tell you MS gives you the option to choose, said option costs an extra $79 over what Sony gives the consumer right out of the box

Except not everyone wants the HD DVD drive whereas with the PS3, you have no choice and you're paying for that lack of choice.

You can't add in the cost of an optional addon just because it's there.

PS3 60GB is only HK$3780 (US$484) here, so the X360 elite is only 5 bucks cheaper.

The only way to determine value is to compare Apples and Apples. Yes you have more options with the 360 but if you want equivalent systems the PS3 is cheaper.

If MS would offer an option to get rid of that hugely ugly power brick, would be great.

But that's the point. If you don't want the HD DVD player, you aren't forced to pay $200 for something you're never going to use, unlike the PS3 which is a BD player whether you want it or not, and you're paying for it whether you want to or not.

Don't forget at least MS is nice enough to throw in HDMI and component cables for you.

Hey homeboy... you forgot to add the extra cost to upgrade the PS3's hard drive to 120gb. Add $80-$100 to the cost of the PS3 and your argument just flew out the window!

All I know is that I read the reviews and when COD3 was rated higher for the 360 so I got that version. I thought NBA Homecourt looked better for the PS3. I don't have a particular preference, although I congratulate Sony on making a true home entertainment device. The Blu Ray player in the PS3 is one of the best on the market and the one out right at the moment with HDMI 1.3; maybe the Pioneer Elite has it too but it is 1500 bucks retail. My point is that you guys bash the console without any good reason. The 360 sucked also when it first came out. As I recall, its best game was COD2 and PGR. Sound familiar with Resistance and RR7. Regardless, you guys (especially the puerile infant Zelda) can wax all you want about NPD data and theoretical numbers, but the fruit will be in the pudding. Give it a year and if the PS3 flops at least I have a hell of a Blu Ray player. If It succeeds as I suspect (and most every critical unbiased analyst surmises) it will, it is a relatively good investment for 600 dollars. Peace and sorry to ruffle any feathers. I like the PS3 and 360. I know it ticks off fanbois like Zelda when I demean the Wii...but come on..the name...the hardware...enough said.
I just want you to know that I think what you say is basically 85% bull****. For instance, every media outlet, professional investment firm, etc has basically stated that Sony is going to take it up the @$$ this round. So I really have a hard time believing the line "and most every critical unbiased analyst surmises it will [succeed]" just like I have a hard time believing anything else you say. Please, enlighten me o' great one, what reputable corporation other than Sony think the PS3 will beat everyone out this round?

BTW you're speaking to someone who could go out and purchase a PS3 tomorrow without batting an eye if I wanted to. The $600 price tag doesn't phase me in the slightest. I would simply not use it, so it's literally a waste of an hour of my life to walk down to best buy and pick one up. I have no desire to own a blu-ray player, no desire to own a "media center", and no desire to own any games currently exclusive to the PS3. Maybe once some decent exclusives come out, I'll consider buying it, but until then it is a $600 pile of crap as far as I'm concerned.

I own a 360 and a Wii, and there is really no reason for me to buy a PS3 right now. I realize that I'm violating your insecurity right now because you are coming to the realization that you just wasted $600, but deal with it. Or ebay it.
