    Trouble is most PS3 games are ports from the 360 so they look crap on PS3.

    Wait for PS3 exclusive games.

    Here's what tigger69 has to say :p

    the 360 has better graphics hardware

    Oh I thought Ps3 did?
    T1GG4L4T0R says:
    ps3 is 7800gtx
    T1GG4L4T0R says:
    xbox is custom ati with unified shaders ala 2900/8800

    So probably the 360 is better.

    LOL

    The 360 has always been better than the PS3 The 360 has a better GPUY than the PS3 and the PS3 has only a slightly better CPU than the 360 that no one can evn code for:laugh::laugh::laugh:

    newer cross platform games shows that ps3 has a much better AA than the 360, making it have crisper models at 1080p.

    On a hardware basis the ps3 is indeed more powerful. The RSX Gpu is fairly even with the ATI chip in the 360. The cell cpu is more powerful than the powerpc tricore of the 360, but the cell is harder to code for and also does sound etc on the chip.

    Theres no point in arguing about tech specs, we won't see consoles get compeditive in terms of quality for probably another year or two.

    Casheti, notice how the PS3 owners defend the PS3, even when facts speak for themselves ;)

    ATM, the 360 is the clear winner in performance (and quality of titles). This may change once the programmers can make full use of the PS3 Cell. But for now, I personally dont think the PS3 warrants the hefty pricetag.

    hey im not biased as i think they are both over priced for what they are realy, so heres my .02.

    i cant see how any comparisons can claim to be fair at this point in time the game devs have had a year more to work around the 360 and its quirks and for the most part the ps3 games are those square pegs being squashed in to the pentagon that is the ps3. the 360 is for the most part onto its second gen of games and only when the ps3 is at the same stage will it then be a fair comparison. you want to make it as fair as possible pick a release day game from both systems and use them.

    personlly i think that once they (game devs) get used to both system that it will be the ps3 that is on top but by that time microsoft will most likly have the 720 or 24/7 or quadbox, or what ever daft number they choose next, ready to ship and they will cut off the 360 as soon as it reaches its prime like they did with the last xbox.

    hey flame away and call me a fanboi coz i dont love the 360 too.

    LOL, you think the 360 @ £199 for a full Premium console is overpriced for what it is? It costs less then your graphics card m8 ;)

    why would I/we do that, everyone is entitled to an opinion and yours is a valid one.

    I have both consoles, and right now, yes, 360 is on top. But I can also tell you that I'm already seeing some improvements in the ps3 games.

    So I agree that we should wait until at least the devs figure out coding for the ps3. Then we'll see a good comparison.

    I can say that the ps3 is way better for watching DVDs and movie files. Looks way better. Upscaling is far superior on ps3. (Not that has anything to do with gaming, but it is a point in it's favor, none the less. lol)

    Also, I'm really bummed that NHL 08 performs that poorly on ps3. I was leaning towards the ps3 version, because online is free, and I still refuse to pay for Live Gold. Oh well. I guess no online for me.

    i think they are both pretty equal ...only thing is...

    The Xbox 360 can do amazing things with HDR...so well that it makes alot of the same titles for the ps3 look like poop compared to it. and the 360 can manage frame rate way better than the ps3.

    no matter how you slice it the reason the 360 is on top is because it has been out 1 year longer...granted companies cant code right with the ps3 cpu but hey...maybe one day they'll get it..

    October and November should be a make or break month for both systems


    Call of Duty 4

    Jericho

    Half life orange box (October but yeah)

    BlackSite: Area 51

    Army of two

    TimeShift

    F.E.A.R Files

    Assassins Creed

    S.O.F Payback (if you are still interested in it ha)

    World in conflict (if you dont have a good pc)

    Conan (if your interested)

    (yes i have all of these on pre order im gonna be a very poor man come end of november)

    These games are going to be great (i hope ha) and this is whats going to make the systems shine for christmas or not, we will see countless reviews on both systems on the same game and see how well one did over the other

    mainly the reason the 360 versions are better ...Frame rate and HDR...

    im excited for November :-D

    Fear Files will be the expansion of F.E.A.R and the second expansion together in one game cause they didnt make the expansion for the 360.

    Resistance kicks ass, I have it and love it.

    And I suppose you don't like Gran Turismo? Cause GT5 is a ps3 exclusive.

    I like the ps3 better for the extras as well, like video playback and such.

    well i like killing things/people in games and such...racing games bore me after i beat them once...so not really caring about GT5 although i will admit it looks great...

    and did you see PGR 4 for the 360 its very nice looking and very nice playing it ...

    i like the burnout series though...smashing cars is oh so fun

    Never liked the PGR series, handling too arcade-ish for me.

    I, however, LOVE the burnout series. Smashing and blowing up cars, is indeed, a blast.

    Well I've come to the conclusion i will get a ps3 in December...if there titles make me crack a smile...not saying this as a 360 fan boy at all but sony has disappointed a lot of people with the system...I've played both madden 08 on each system and the frame rate is horrible on the ps3 it drops a lot and is very noticeable

    Yeah, those issues worry me a little, but I'm pretty confident time will cure the probs. I mean, some games have no problems at all running at good frame rates with high details. Seems to me that EA may be responsible for this round of crap on the Madden and NHL issues. (Big surprise there. lol)

    yes i know my gpu would of cost more but i only have it coz it was free, long story but i have some nice friends :) one also has a e6600 in a draw collecting dust so...:D


    edit

    from what i have read in the uk press both ps3 and 360 are selling at about the same rate here and the wii is selling at about the same as both of them combind so i think there is only one clear winner but as to wether it is classed as a "next-gen" console is open for debate.
