PS3 v. 360

Post by cbranger on Tue Jan 05, 2010 8:43 pm

Well everyone I'm hear to let everyone know of my take on the biggest gaming question of the past few years, the present, and the future.... Playstation 3 or Xbox 360! I have played PS3 for over a year and when it broke recently I went out and bought a 360. Here is my take on the two.

Sony Playstation 3

    It has great controller! The controller is wireless, motion sensored, rechargeable battery, the analog sticks never wore out on me, and it fits MOST
    hands comfortably.
    Sleek look
    FREE ONLINE, but with free online comes terrible lag on most multiplayer games.
    PSN is great, movies, game videos, TV shows, game demos, game add- ons, and much more.
    The XMB is mediocre and not easy to navigate.
    Friends are easy to view for the most part.
    HOME is okay, nothing special.
    The PS3 has many other options such as adding another OS such as Linux.
    And of course last but not least... BLU RAY!

In the end the PS3 is a great system, has many functions, and it comes with a built in BLU RAY player.

Microsoft XBOX 360

    GREAT ONLINE SUPPORT
    XBOX LIVE is $50 a year for a great online experience which includes Netflix, 1 v 100, Last .fm, Twitter, Facebook, and little lag in multiplayer games.
    XMB is great easy to access and has a lot of information about XBOX
    1v 100 is a really cool free game. (Wish PS3 had something like it)
    Controller is bulky and the analogs wear out quickly.
    The 360 doesn't give you as many options as the PS3.
    No Blu Ray.
    Not the best looking hardware, but it has it's own look.

In the end the 360 is another great system, great online support, and many features within it self.

So here is my verdict....

If your a casual gamer who likes online, but will only play a few hours a week the PS3 is for you.
If your looking for a Blu Ray = PS3
Like gaming, appreciate a good games with good graphics, like RPG games = PS3
If your a hardcore online gamer = 360
Want to play online with people all over the world = 360
If you want great support from developers = 360

In summary both systems are great systems, the system for you all depends on the type of gamer you are, how much you game, and the extra features you would like.
If I could only have one I think I would have to with the XBOX 360. I play a lot of online multiplayer and like the extra features you get with the 360.
But I miss my working PS3 a few of my friends have it and I made a lot of friends while playing it. Hope this helped some people out. Or was an interesting read.
Sorry if this is all just repeated things to you.
Happy Gaming! Very Happy

PSN doesnt lag much. Everyone tells me:

"Oh ps3 sucks, all you do is lag around on MW2!"

maybe 1 in every 50 matches is when i get laggy.

And the XMB isnt that bad. its pretty simple and is customizeable by adding themes and custom wallpapers or home camera pictures.

I have a PS3 and a ton of my friends (not all) have an Xbox 360 and most of them are on thier 3rd or 4th xbox due to RROD.

thats all i gotta say and all of this is IMO!

thanks

Oh I have a PS3 I did love it. In fact I still love it. It doesn't lag every game, but sure lags a lot. Matchmaking was terrible when my 3 broke. But there are many nights when I would play that I would have little to know problem. I never had anything against the XMB, but once I used the 360 the PS3 XMB was just ehh to me.

Very Nice! I would have to agree with everything, especially the controller issue, but If I could only have one, it would be the PS3!

I really like the Netflix thing on Xbox, of course I have it for the PS3 as well, but the Xbox version of NetFlix is idk 100 times better.

The PS3 NetFlix requires that you first get a disc sent to you, so you have to have the disc and then it only gives you your "Instant Que" to choose from.


The 360 NetFlix requires no special disc, and you have the entire library of instant movies to choose from, whether they are in your "Que" or not, I just tried this out the other night when I used a "2 day Live Trial" (must have gold for NetFlix to work*), but hands down 360 NetFlix is 100 times better

I think people's online experience is based more on their location and ISP than whether it's XBL/PSN.

Not gonna be a fanboy here, but I was completely let down by xbox. The gaming experience on the xbox is great but the reliability is not. I waited in line to get my 360 when it came out. Now 4 RoD's later, I'm a Playstation 3 man now. I don't care what people say about the graphics. When your rockin a 46" 1080p 120Hz with HDMI Playstation looks beautiful. Like I said my bad Xbox experience had nothing with online line play or features...... just functionality.

Okay everybody who hasn't caught this- I have a PS3!!! I have wired connection and have high speed Road Runner. I played WaW and MW2 the most. I had evenings where I didn't lag at all, but I have had a lot of evenings where I would have spurts of good little lag games and good connection games. There were also a few evenings where I would have unplayable lag for a games in a row. On xbox I have had maybe 5 laggy games since I started playing and that was due to the host choice. I SUPPORT BOTH SYSTEMS AND ENJOY BOTH!

Yes keep the thread clean here.

For my two cents, I cannot STAND the PS3 controller. The analog sticks are convex which make things harder to control. It's easier to pull back on something concave rather than convex. My hand always slips on the PS3 controller.

I don't think I will be getting a PS3 unless:
1) Sony releases a new controller
2) I mod an Xbox controller to the PS3

I like my PS3 controller, and i have both systems too...I always ask me how can you X-Box people play with such a heavy big clumsy controller !? and i always want a PS3 controller for the X-Box. I really can´t play with the Box controller...

idk why everyone is getting bend out of shape. I thought the overall review of the 2 systems was great. Many very good points. Everyone has there own opinion and not everyone is going to agree. Im a 360 player and I actually went with the xbox because I liked the controls feel in my hands. But the analogs due wear out faster than ps3. IMO the blue ray is the biggest difference in the 2. I really wish I had that on the xbox. And most users have had alot of problems from the xbox functionality. Me personally have only sent mine in for repair once for the video card going out due to a power surge. Never had RROD in 3 years. But then again I have an elite and I have heard the elites didnt have as many problems as the arcades and pros.

Overall nice breakdown on the 2 systems cbranger.

Really it depends on which system you own.
If u like da xbox it is easier to navigate
If you own a ps3, it is easier to navigate.
I went to my friends house to play halo ( first time)
And i couldnt even start the game. o.o

Xbox wins= Playstation sucks.

Got a playstation free with my phone upgrade and sold it on ebay within 2 weeks. There garbage, and like a previous user stated when discussing that you have to pay for xbox live YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR and PS on-line is garbage

Yeah I see where your coming from but here in the UK there's only a few place where you can get that sort of internet speeds. But my experience with it was diabolical, the chat was horrendous the games both Fifa,cod lagged continuously.

yea ok that sucks indeed...i think it all depends from where is the hosting one. So if we get a host from overseas, it will lag like hell, and if we got a local host it´s all good. Maybe i had bad luck on XBL and got most of the time some hosts from overseas !?
