Title: game console
Post by: wuust on April 29, 2009, 06:06:02 AM
i wanna ask you guys which one is the best. i m doubting between all three. unfortunatly i have only funds for 1. a wii looks like a whole lot of fun, but just when you are with 2 people or more. and a ps3 will have ff13 which i'm looking forward to. and the 360 has skate1 and skate2.
please help me out here!

(and we all know sega mega drive's is the best, but i have it already)

Wii is good fun with friends, for hardcore gaming get something else...
Title: Re: game console
Post by: Sleazy on April 29, 2009, 06:18:37 AM
PS3 has skate

get XBox if your into online gaming but get PS3 if you want a better gaming console (more power, blue ray dvd built in, blue tooth built in, wireless wifi built in, ect...)

oh and also get PS3 if you're hyped on the sickest game of all time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCylj25pq18&feature=related

don't get a wii. 360 is getting final fantasy 13, too and live is better than psn.  ps3 has some good games coming out this year (god of war 3 and uncharted 2) and of course blu ray. they're both good, but the xbox is cheaper and i personally prefer the controller.

Each console has their strengths and weakness'.  I couldn't make up my mind so I got all 3.  But the one that gets most playtime is the Wii, just because there are people over all the time and I play Mario Kart with my wife.  But for online gaming, 360's kills PS3, for now at least.  I basically got the PS3 to watch Final Flare, and I got it for a kickass deal.  The PS3 games look awesome if you have the right TV setup but I honestly have more fun with the 360 and Wii.  I hope they start making more games for the PS3 that have more fun factor.

360 and PS3 are more or less the same.

360 is cheaper and has better online. PS3 has blu-ray.

Wii is fun for a few weeks only.

360 is shit.
PS3 is built tough.
And plus they have tons of games now that will def keep you occupied.
And free online!!!


But if you want a 360
- you got to pay to play online
- And they break easily.

I was actually meaning that for the Wii.  I honestly have more fun on the Wii (maybe because of the multi player/fun with everyone), maybe I need to look into other PS3 games, I dunno.  But the only games I've played on the PS3, they're sick but I just lose interest within 20 min.

Post by: sage on April 29, 2009, 10:37:48 AM
Honestly I'd buy an xbox360 for the controller alone. The PS3 controller sucks dick, especially for FPS games. There's not a huge difference between the two anyways, and 360 is cheaper. Easy decision if you ask me.
Title: Re: game console
Post by: Sleazy on April 29, 2009, 10:49:32 AM
for those saying there isn't a huge difference between the two i think you might be missing something

XBox
- has 3 processors
- terrible quality
- hd dvd based games which have 1/2 the storage of blueray meaning PS3 can have bigger\better quality games


PS3
- has 7 processors, serveral are special purpose (4 i think) and it's an advanced architecture that's on the intel road map for 2012 so way ahead of the curve
- great quality
- blue ray based games which means twice the storage for games and bigger levels, better quality possible
- wireless wifi
- bluetooth


and the controller thing is just a preference. i can't stand xbox controls and it's always been a big factor in my ps preference and if i'm not mistaken they make compatible PS\XBox style controls for each system of the other systems style. so you can get any controller on any system if you really wanted to.

long story short though is that PS3 design is ahead of the curve and you will continue to see dramatic improvements in the quality of the games on that system for long after xbox is maxed out meaning xbox will have to come out with a newer console to compete before PS meaning that your xbox will be obsolete sooner. just another thing to think about. the games may be similar but from a hardware point of view, PS3 is way more of a beast of a machine.

wuust, don't get the wii. its fun for awhile but you'll get over flailing your arms around like a faggot to play a game aha.
only good game on wii is super smash bros. brawl and the wiisports.

between xbox360 and ps3, it doesn't matter really. I would suggest just getting the system more of your friends have, that way you can play with them online, borrow their games so you dont have to buy as many. and if any problems occur it will be more likely they can help you.

This.

I've personally had a 360 since they came out and I've never had a problem, and the online is much better than PSN and it's easily affordable. I'd recommend one. That said though I have zero interest in either system's exclusives and pretty much only play sports games and call of duty.

What an age old debate, who really knows, its all personal preference, I can never convince the 360 guys that the PS3 is better and likewise with me

However, some benefits of the PS3 that were mentioned earlier

Free Online, yea, its cheap to get online anyways but it is free on the PS3

Blu Ray Player, assuming you already have a 1080p tv this is a huge bonus for you, blu rays are the fucking shit

I'd say dont get a wii, a lot of my friends who have got them have regretted it because of the controller scheme and lack of games, that will change with time though, it is the most fun system to play with people though

Personally, I dont mind the 360 controllers at all, they are easy to get accustom to so im throwing that debate right out the window

Its fact though that more 360s break down than PS3's, its not like people make it up, they have a higher fail rate every single one of my friends who own one has had the ring of death

So, its up to you

explain what makes xbox live better than ps online. did they buy the gooder internet tube? because i have seen no difference whatsoever when switching them back and forth. and the ps3 has next to no fail rate, and a processor that jams cock into xbox's micro soft brown spot.
Title: Re: game console
Post by: Choad Muskrat on April 29, 2009, 02:08:13 PM
I've heard there's consistantly more lag on ps3 online

also heard xbox live has a lot more support and wider selection for downloadable content, patches, demos, arcade games etc..

I've never actually played ps3 online so my opinion is biased, but just from what I've read/heard.

I wont defend xbox'x hardware however, I'm on my 3rd one.

also, the ps3 is harder to develop for and most of the time gets buggier/inferior ports of multi-platform games.

that is true but it's why PS3 will eventually stomp XBox from the perfomance side of things. mircosoft has great dev tools and all that but really it's the game enginees that matter and the reason that PS3 game enginees were difficult is because the architecture is brand new and the game geeks haven't figured out how to maximizes it's power yet. eventually they will, i'd assume that they already did with the last unreal engine but if not then they will and then it'll stop being a contest on the power front.

Sleazy, you sound like a used car salesman trying to sell a sports car to the dude who just wants to go point a to b.

well i did quite a bit of research before i brought my system and why not share

and i'm not pushing PS3 over xbox, it's really just preference but i did want to clear up the "pretty much the same" arguement because they definitely aren't.
Title: Re: game console
Post by: max power on April 29, 2009, 03:16:20 PM
by the time the games get better for the ps3, a newer xbox will be out that will likely be better still. even more likely is that sony will release a new console before the best games (technologically speaking) get released for the existing system a la 'god of war 2'.

i have to say, what really sealed the deal for me when i was buying a console was that sony removed the ps2 backwards compatibility.

Post by: Carrolls Chesthairs on April 29, 2009, 03:46:29 PM
i don't care which one you get but here are some games that are great for each platform
wii-zelda,mariokart, super smash brothers,
360-typical games that are only on 360, halo, cod
ps3-metal gear solid 3 and that little big world game looks pretty tight

I don't want to turn this into a fanboy fight, but i'll go ahead...

so, the ps3 will eventually stomp the xbox because it has almost no loyal developers and it basically sucks for making games on? People say buy the console for exclusive games, but the xbox is even better for games like call of duty, because they are actually designed for the xbox, then ported to the ps3, which makes the ps3 versions buggier and shittier. And it has waaaaay more exclusives.

Bluray games don't mean jack shit. So far not a single company has made a game that couldn't fit on a regular dvd which is what is used in the xbox.

AND, saying that more processors = better is really misguided. The processors of both systems operate better in certain conditions, and overall the ps3 clocks in just slightly higher than the 360.

In terms of graphics cards, the xbox 360 and the ps3 are very similar.

Online, go xbox.

Xbox hardware problems are fixed. I don't know why this is still part of the argument.

I have all 3.

My Wii is currently in the box, I have not touched it in over a year.

My xbox 360 is currently broken, so it's collecting dust.  I love the 360 and will buy a new one when I get back to the states.  This one has been fixed several times and the warranty is voided so I'm just gonna get a new one.

PS3 is fun, but most games are multi platform anyway, except for a few exclusives.

I like the 360 controller better, the PS controller seems flimsy and the analog positions seem awkward, but i'm getting more used to it.


Verdict:  360 is cheaper and more people play it.  Get a 360.

HOWEVER:  When MAG comes out it will be only on PS3, and it looks great.

maybe, but my downstairs neighbors is broke right now though and it's microsoft. let's face it, these fools never release anything that's properly tested or that's stable. they release stuff that works well when it works but stability and quality have never been their strong points.

and i program on MS platforms for a living, so i'm definitely not a MS hater, infact the only other forum i activitly chat on is for a MS technology that my whole livelyhood is dependent on. i just know how they do business. they test their products on users and then release multiple versions. an arguably ok thing to do when you can simply download updates but when it comes to hardware, i think it should be unacceptable. but they are microsoft and they can release a shit quality product and still get dominate market presence, so they will keep doing it.

You don't know what you are talking about if you honestly think a ported game will perform the same as the original. Large developers want to save time and money, and aren't very thorough when porting the games, which leads to bugs. Most games are developed for 360, then ported. This means, more bugs for the ps3.

if the skate games are a big enough issue, i'd go with the 360. i know the og skate runs way better on a 360 (don't try to convince me otherwise, i've played both and can't stand the framerate on the ps3). you may have to pay for online, but there are way more people actually playing and most of them use the headset. your 360 will probably get a red ring of death, but if you're nerdy enough, you can learn to fix it. it happened to me and a friend around the same time, and i was able to get both working in about 1 hour and 1 trip to lowes. best part is, you can make some money if someone you know gets the rrod. one hour and 40 bucks usually sucks less than 2 months.

also, the ps3 is harder to develop for and most of the time gets buggier/inferior ports of multi-platform games.

that is true but it's why PS3 will eventually stomp XBox from the perfomance side of things. mircosoft has great dev tools and all that but really it's the game enginees that matter and the reason that PS3 game enginees were difficult is because the architecture is brand new and the game geeks haven't figured out how to maximizes it's power yet. eventually they will, i'd assume that they already did with the last unreal engine but if not then they will and then it'll stop being a contest on the power front.

Sleazy, you sound like a used car salesman trying to sell a sports car to the dude who just wants to go point a to b.

well i did quite a bit of research before i brought my system and why not share

and i'm not pushing PS3 over xbox, it's really just preference but i did want to clear up the "pretty much the same" arguement because they definitely aren't.

I don't want to turn this into a fanboy fight, but i'll go ahead...

so, the ps3 will eventually stomp the xbox because it has almost no loyal developers and it basically sucks for making games on? People say buy the console for exclusive games, but the xbox is even better for games like call of duty, because they are actually designed for the xbox, then ported to the ps3, which makes the ps3 versions buggier and shittier. And it has waaaaay more exclusives.

Bluray games don't mean jack shit. So far not a single company has made a game that couldn't fit on a regular dvd which is what is used in the xbox.

AND, saying that more processors = better is really misguided. The processors of both systems operate better in certain conditions, and overall the ps3 clocks in just slightly higher than the 360.

In terms of graphics cards, the xbox 360 and the ps3 are very similar.

Online, go xbox.

Xbox hardware problems are fixed. I don't know why this is still part of the argument.

360 rulez, n00bz

never played a "bugy" ps3 game that wasnt "bugy" on the xbox also (skate1+2) you sir dont know what you are talking about and this arguement is pointless. buy both of them and shut all of these slap forum programming supernovas the fuck up.

You don't know what you are talking about if you honestly think a ported game will perform the same as the original. Large developers want to save time and money, and aren't very thorough when porting the games, which leads to bugs. Most games are developed for 360, then ported. This means, more bugs for the ps3. It's really not that difficult to understand.

name me a glitchy ps3 game that doesnt start with EA and end in 2.

It's not particularly that they're really glitchy on the PS3, they're just not as smooth as the 360 version.

The Orange Box springs to mind.

I think that was ported by EA though.

anything that dropped before unreal released it's first engine doesn't count and really they will have to release a few before someone gets all john carmack on that shit and makes it next level

The PS3 is the leading platform for Modern Warfare 2.
