I am a Playstation advocate as well and I can tell you right now the 360 is going to blow PS3 outta the water. The major blow will come from PS3 not having backwards capability ... meaning you will not be able to play PS2 games on the PS3. the second blow comes from the 360 having the removable 20 gig HD. PS3 will never again match the gaming capacity the Microsoft has ventured into.

I was going to wait and see if the PS3 would compare, but it won't .... not even close!

The options for the 360 and modifications is unlimited. Just wait and see what people will do with this 360. A friend of mine is hardcore into modding and some of the stuff he talks about blows my mind, and he tells me that it will only be available to the 360.



Good luck to all those who will be fighting crowds on black friday to get one! Gimme your address and I'll be right over! LOL

I will get both a 360 and PS3 since I think Microsoft has done a great job with the XBOX and Sony does a great job with the PS line. I like the Square/Ennix games that sony gets and love the Metal Gear games. I also like the PC/Console type adrenaline pumpers that XBOX gets so Ill go with both. Although I would hold off I have heard that 360 hardware has some major issues so Im holding off for a few months till they get it running smoothly. For me though PC gaming will always reign supreme.

I have Gamecube, PS2 and Xbox standing here... Gamecube because of games like Super Mario and the Zelda series, PS2 initially because of Final Fantasy, now also because of GT4, and Xbox because of the best graphic out there (most of the time)... I also hate memory cards... and the price they slam on these 8Mb pieces of plastic and silicon....

Except if something changes dramtically if will get 360, PS3 and Nintendos new one as well.
My wife is into gaming even more than I am... and we don't have kids... so more for us

You might want to do a little more research on this subject as you are incorrect on all 3 points. You can start here...

Wikipedia Playstation 3
Playstation.com

Xbox 360 will be dated within 3 months of it's release. Not to say that it won't be a "good" system when compared to older systems, but it's already way outdone by PS3.

I agree.

Check out the screenshots at the bottom of the wiki page.

Oh yeah, here is some gameplay footage of the PS3 Killzone...

And since the hard drive comes with Linux installed, it is much more open to modification than the xbox will be. Open source all the way. Even the SDK for the PS3 is all open source. Power to the People...

I agree that both systems are going to be reletively equal in terms of performance and capabilities, however, I'll take the 360 for the modification aspect. My current Xbox holds over 150 games all saved on the hard drive.

That's because they only have to go back one version. There hasn't been any huge changes (architectually speaking) since the first xbox came out. They are going from version 1 to version 2 and planned to do so from the beginning. The first playstation came out around 10 years ago. A lot has changed since then and to be able to support it with modern hardware alone is quite a feat.

The PS3 may be 100% backwards compatible. Reading further into the article you quoted (bold added for emphasis)...

"Third-party developers sometimes do things that are unimaginable. For example, there are cases where their games run, but not according to the console's specifications. There are times when games pass through our tests, but are written in ways that make us say, 'What in the world is this code?!' We need to support backward compatibility towards those kinds of games as well, so trying to create compatibility by software alone is difficult. There are things that will be required by hardware. However, with the powers of [a machine like] the PS3, some parts can be handled by hardware, and some parts by software."

Why is it that XBox and PS owners just can't get along. It's like getting republicans and democrats in a room together. They are both great consoles, the only thing I'm worried about is the speculation of how much the PS3 is going to cost. The Video cards and processors in both systems are truly all that matters to me. They are very different from one another and both seem to have their merits. Personally I'll go for the 360 because of XBox live. I loved the PS and PS2 and didn't really see a major difference until XBox live came out between the consoles. Playstation is going to have to launch something like that I believe in order for the PS3 to compete.
