there has been a lot of flamin going around about PS3 and XBOX 360. i personally am gonna get both.(ya im rich ) so here is a quick comparison on both.
the PS3 has overall more power that the xbox 360. with the ps3 operating at 2 treafolps and the xbox at 1, the PS3 will have more power. in terms of graphics, the PS3 will be a BIT, just a BIT better that the xbox. (im trying not to sound like a fanboy here.) though this is mostly the producers choice. loading time will depend on the game, the size of the game and some other stuff which is too long to write about.
SYSTEM AND CONTROLLER DESIGN
so far this has been the number 1 cause for flaming. i personally say they are equal (again, trying not to be a fanboy) but this is up to you. the PS3 controller i have some doubts about. but it might turn out comftable. who knows? the xbox controller looks preety good too, but again this is up to you.
both controllers wil be wireless, but PS3 will support up to 7. why not 8? only sony and god know.
both systems will use wireless 802.11 B/G Wi-Fi, but PS3 will also support Bluetooth 2.0. sony hasnt revealed much of their network gaming plan yet but xbox still has XBOX LIVE. (with some added features.)
the ps3 will use blu-ray discs capable of storing up to 26 GB single layer. i doubt any lineup games will need this much space, but it might be needed later on. the xbox on the other hand, will use dual layerd DVDs capable of storing i think 8.5 GB someone correct me if im wrong. PS3 will support every media fromat known to man (well, almost) and the xbox is not far behind.
this is what it comes down to. the category that makes a system famous, or hated. so far, both launch lineups are pretty solid. PS3's strong point will probably be vision gran turismo, tekken PS3 (drool) and some other good games i am too lazy to list.and xbox will have foraza and later on halo 3.
in short, both of these systems are strong and weak in their own way. buy what you want, and try( if you have enough money) to buy both.
