FPS(halo etc.) > PS3 Shooters
DoA > Tekken
GT5 > Forza
PS3 RPGs > 360 RPGs
PS3 Sports = 360
PS3 Online Service > 360's Online Service. Yeah you can get movies on the 360 but you have to pay so thats pretty shitty.
Madden 08 is better than the PS3's since they made it run twice as fast but I don't think they are going to be doing that every year. If they are then I'd have to say the 360 will gain the upper hand on sports.

Shooters is what makes the 360 great. Its like Mario for Nintendo and RPGs for the PS3. Every system has its own genre which it completely dominates.


^^good conclusion.....well each system has their own fanboys...within my school there once was a week long war between halo and final fantasy fanboys....it was horrible

Yes. I don't want a 360 because of the FPS anyway.... NG2 FTW!!!!

Also, if you take out shooters in PS3, you take out, Rachet and Clank, Drake's fortune, MSG4, Warhawk, and Resistance: Fall of man. PS3 will suck.

There's no good games to play online on the PS3 other than Warhawk, anyway...

LOL, I heard the first game was very average, and I expect the second game to be about the same. But yea, I've seen the sonyfans saying it'll be the PS3 seller..... That's what they said about Lair, lol.

for ps3 fanboys this is the killing blow right here:::

the xbox 360 is becoming more popular than the ps3 in japan!!

haha sony got ownd. betrayed by their own people lol. btw im japanese too AND i own both a ps3 and a 360.

--game selection: 360 is better
--system: 360 has a smaller hard drive but the save files are waaay smaller. i have the 80 gig for ps3 and with just a few save files and game updates i only had like 60 left. Heavenly Sword took like 3 gigabytes LOL. the 360 HD can last you so long especially if you dont really download any arcade games.
--controller: once you get used to the 360 controller (size) the buttons feel more comfortable especially the trigger/bumper positions. on the the ps3 the R2/L2 buttons arent always responsive and it just feels weird.
--online play: 360 ownz cuz EVERYONE has a headset haha. the only thing you have to worry about is foreign players that you cant understand like japanese players but you can easily set filters so that you only play with people who speak the same language.
--online store: the 360 marketplace is a lot more user friendly and appealing than the sony store. the sony store is really plain (its like all black, blue and white haha) and the organization of downloads suck.
--web browsing: you can actually surf the web on the ps3 like you could in the dreamcast which is cool but its like "whats the point" since basically everyone has a computer especially those who can afford a 360/ps3. and the stuff you can do on the web browser is still limited so its pretty weak.
--install OS: you can install Linux on the ps3 but just like web browsing, its pretty useless since most people have a computer anyway. also since ps3 game updates and saves take so much space people only partition like 10 gigabytes for the separate OS so you cant really do much with just 10 gigs haha. or at least i cant ><
--Graphics: i have a 32" HDTV and i use an HDMI and the HD components cables for both the ps3 and 360 so i get the best graphics possible. kinda lol. i have 1080i and not 1080p which is better but its still good. I'd have to say that the textures are smoother on most of the 360 games. i was playing Heavenly Sword and Resistance with an HDMI and it still looked pretty blocky/pixelated sometimes.
--Lastly for the 360:: people are all worried about the Red Light (Ring) of Death. well my answer is, if you get that, its just your xbox telling you to get a life haha cuz i've had the same 360 that i got right after its official release and i still havent gotten the red light yet. but probably because i dont ever play longer than 3 hours on any system including the 360. so if you play with moderation you'll be good to go for a long long time

so overall the 360 is better. o yea i forgot to mention the Blu-Ray player. i guess thats actually better since its pretty official that HD-DVD has lost the race for domination against Blu-Ray and that Blu-Ray is gonna be the next standard after DVDs. thats basically it. kinda long but this is an my conclusion of which is better after lots of experience playing with both systems.

killing blow right there, i never thought id see the day i met a japanese 360 fan...whats ur gamertag, mines MongusDaLemon....and in regards to blu ray, according to rumors from a microsoft insider, the 360 blu ray player is already in development...and the 360 + The Blu Ray Player is still cheaper than PS3....so like i have said time and time again, the only thing the PS3 has thats better than the 360 is its RPG's...

lolll, maybe but in GDC 08', at the xbox stand they got the RROD, even though i have a 360, i found it funny. it was a new xbox360 so i wonder if it' s the playtime, i been with my 2nd 360 for a year and a half with no problem and i am a hardcore gamer, it still lives....

LOL thats quite funny even though the Red Ring happened to me but not in 3hrs but only in 20min and the system was freaking new.But back to the topic yea I would still buy it but not for the highly overrated Halo but for sum of the RPG's nd Action games they have.

this thread is prolly made by some ps3 fanboy


You know, the OP was simply trying to see if the 360 was worth it if it didn't have FPS' and see if he wants to get one or not. It shows no signs of fanboyism, and he didn't even say that he liked the PS3 yet. This thread wasn't meant to slag off the 360 or the PS3, the other posters just turn it out this way.
