PS4 vs XBox One: After the fact
Ever since the dawn of man, if you give humanity an option there will be competition. Whether that is choosing what deity you bow to or selecting your favorite brand of booze at the bar, people’s opinions and choices will always create competition. There are few competitors on the market that can create the following of the big name consoles; the passion and dedication of the fans can be seen in rant form on any gaming community website, including this one.

PS4 vs Xbox One

This has been true with consoles ever since Nintendo and Sega; did you prefer bouncing across the heads of mushrooms in the slightly trippy land of the Mario Brothers, or were you a fan of our speedy, blue haired friend on the Sega? Everyone has their own preference and now that the PS4 and the Xbox One have been out for a year, it's time to reevaluate the situation and see for ourselves who is currently winning the race.

E3 2016 and Beyond: The War Begins Anew

Sony was handing Microsoft their proverbial posteriors going into 2016, but E3 shook the very halls of the gaming world. Not only were we given confirmation that the PS4 Neo, otherwise known as the PS4.5, is real, but Microsoft also had a few announcements of their own.

Chief among them was the announcement of Xbox 2, codenamed Project Scorpio. They also mentioned something about an Xbox One S, but let's be honest, people are more interested in this new console they're talking about.

Phil Spencer promised it would be "the most powerful console ever built." Meanwhile, Sony focused on games and neglected to speak about the PS4 Neo until the time was right. That time, apparently is September 7th, 2016 when Sony plans to hold "The PlayStation Meeting" to talk about the "future of the PlayStation business."

With both Sony and Microsoft bringing out new consoles (or console refreshes as some people call them), it's no longer simply the PS4 vs Xbox One. We've got a new war on our hands people.

Microsoft Going All In

Let's start with an away game. Microsoft announced both Xbox 2 (Project Scorpio) and Xbox One S at E3 2016. The S came out in August of 2016 and Project Scorpio is scheduled for a holiday 2017 date.

Up until 2016, Microsoft was way behind monthly sales on PS4 systems. While Sony still has quite the lead overall, the Xbox One managed to beat PS4 sales in July 2016.

Mike Nicholas, head of Xbox's marketing, was clearly happy with the turnaround:

"We're honored that Xbox One was the best-selling console in the U.S. in July, and that total gaming hours on Xbox consoles globally were up 18 percent over last year, reaching 1.55 billion hours."

Impressive to be sure, but let's not forget that PS4 has already sold over 40 million consoles, and they've had a 2-to-1 lead over Xbox One up until now. Even so, Microsoft isn't playing around.

They've been ramping up on the exclusive titles in 2016, with new titles coming like Recore, Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Dead Rising 4, Sea of Thieves, Halo Wars 2, and Scalebound.

They've also promised that the Xbox 2 (Project Scorpio) will be both backwards and forwards compatible. Microsoft has thus far said there will be no Scorpio exclusives. Every game released will work across all version of their current consoles.

Aaron Greenberg, head of Xbox Games marketing tweeted this after E3 2016:

"Great thing is with Project Scorpio as part of #XboxOne family all your games will work, no Scorpio exclusives, so no one gets left behind."

Top this off with the promise that Project Scorpio/Xbox 2 will be compatible with VR and it's clear Microsoft is looking to catch up or even surpass Sony.

Don't worry though, Sony has something up their sleeves. They always do.

Sony Playing For Keeps With PS4 Neo

Just before E3 2016, PlayStation boss Andrew House confirmed the existence of PS4.5, otherwise known as PS4 Neo. Furthermore, additional details are set to be revealed September 7th, 2016 at The PlayStation Meeting.

When rumors first appeared regarding the PS4.5, people were worried (myself included) that Sony was planning on cutting the PS4's lifecyle short to keep pace with technology. During an interview with The Guardian, PlayStation boss Andrew house put those fears to rest.

"I don't think we're suggesting with Neo, the conventional console lifecycle is over, I'm certainly not making that statement. This is an additional option, it's a high-end version of a PlayStation 4, let's be very clear about that, rather than a generational shift."

The real reason behind the PS4 Neo is to cater to the audience of gamers that inevitably shift away from consoles to PC as the technology gap widens. Essentially, this is a supercharged PS4 for those who want the best of the best.

This reasoning doubles if you're someone who has a 4K television as the Neo will offer 4K experiences. Neither Project Scorpio or PS4 Neo have confirmed specs as of this writing, but it will be certainly interesting to see how the two stack up.

Looking back to the game side of things, Microsoft may have some interesting titles coming for the Xbox, but PlayStation continues to crush it with the exlusive titles. Check out these bombshells coming to the PS4:

  • God of War IV
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Days Gone
  • Death Stranding
  • Spider-Man
  • Horizon: Zero Dawn
  • Sony's game-focused E3 presentation was a clear indicator that they are still in the business of creating epic new experiences. With PlayStation VR releasing in October 2016, they are also going to have the edge of VR on consoles before Microsoft.

    The race is getting tighter, we can't argue with that, but it looks like Sony isn't too worried about Microsoft catching up with them. What about you? Who do you think is winning? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

    It's Still (And Always Will Be) About the Games

    These respective systems continue to evolve with updates and tweaks, along with new apps like HBO Go, but ultimately these are game consoles and they live and die by their games. Microsoft hasn't seen any major exclusives this year (so far) except for the occasional indie title that gets high praise.

    The best way to describe the current state of affairs is to admit that the playing field has been leveled to an extent. We're in between furious bouts of heated debate, but this is only the eye of the storm. The two contenders are in their respective corners, taking a breather before they go at each other's throats again.

    You can bet that this article will receive more updates on the ongoing console war. Until then my friends, game on!

    PS4 vs XBox

    Hardware Wars
    The technology behind the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is so close that even I had to take notice. I’ve compiled a chart that lists all of the information that is confirmed for each system so we can compare the two.

    Xbox One PS4
    CPU 8 Core AMD Jaguar Custom CPU 1.75GHZ 8 Core AMD Jaguar X64 (10X PS3 Processing Power) 1.6GHZ
    GPU AMD GPU 'Durango' D3D 11.1 chip AMD Radeon GPU (1080P 60 frames/sec) 4k Ultra HD
    RAM 8 GB DDR3 68.3gb/second +32 Embedded Static Ram 8 GB Unified GDDR5 - 176gb/second
    Optical Drive Blu-ray Blu-ray
    Storage 500 GB Hard Drive (not removable) 500 GB Hard Drive (removable)

    PS4 versus Xbox OneI know what you’re thinking upon looking at this chart; the statistics of both systems look the same. I know I previously guessed that both systems would have quite a difference between them; after all, looking at the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, both systems use extremely different hardware. However, it seems with the next generation, this isn’t the case, as both systems are close in terms of specifications despite Sony relying on AMD and Microsoft relying on their own proprietary hardware.

    GPU - Graphics Power

    Looking at the GPU, which is commonly referred to as the graphics card, you’ll notice a slight difference; while the PlayStation 4 is using a Radeon, the Xbox One is using a card capable of Direct3D 11 to align itself with the Windows architecture the system is using. However, both cards feature DirectX 11 support in addition to an increase of VRAM, which is going to blow the current generation of consoles away. I previously didn’t think we’d see a big jump in graphics, but I was definitely wrong.

    CPU - Processing Power

    In terms of CPU, the Xbox One is using feature an 8 core CPU, same as the PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 4’s 8 core CPU is specifically designed to work with the graphics card, much like the Xbox One's graphics card and CPU are designed to work together in the Windows-based environment the system provides. This reminds me of how the PlayStation 3 components were designed to work together and how it produced better PlayStation 3 exclusive games, so color me excited.

    As for the rest of the specs, both systems are using the same amount of RAM, though the PS4 has the edge due to it using DDR5. Both systems are using Blu-ray drives, as expected. Both systems also included a 500GB hard drive . The PS4's drive can be removed and replaced, while the Xbox is stuck with what it's got. That being said, it does support external drives while PS4 doesn't, so pros and cons both ways here.

    It's clear that there are some differences between the two in terms of power. For example, a lot of Xbox One games have been launching at a lower resolution than PS4. In most cases Xbox will get something under 1080p resolution while PS4 will come forward with a native 1080p resolution and a top notch frame rate. Even with this information in mind though, the differences on multiplatform games hasn't been anything massive in either direction.

    Don't upset Francis:

    PS4 is second to none...

    Same here

    I did purchase the Xbox 360 and also the ps3 right after they come out. The thing is I have got ring of dead on the Xbox 360 twice (1 with warranty, 1 without), I also have the red light of dead on my ps3 with warranty and the replacement lasted over 4 years and still working good now. My story is, after my Xbox 360 became unusable, I was only playing with my ps3 until gears of war2 came out, I've bought another Xbox mainly for that game. The first thing I realized is the graphic is really not that great, the graphic is unsmooth and unacceptable compare with ps3 games(weird that I didn't really notice when I playin with my first Xbox ), I sold the Xbox right after I beat that game and I even lost interest to play the online mode. I think I know what to spent when the next consoles released, definitely the ps4. I have a feeling it'll be more expensive and will be a late release again but I'm pretty sure its hardware will be better and last longer.

    360 better in every way - proof is in the pudding

    Gamespot, a reputable and neutral games review site compared 10 games for the 360 and the PS3, and they found on EVERY occassion the graphics were better on the 360. Here is the link: This is catagoric proof the 360 has far superior graphics. This is dispite the PS3 having more "power" so to speak. Further evidence that Microsoft are more competant that the now stale and stagnent Playstion. The 360 outsells the PS3, and would be by an even greater margin if the Microsoft had bothered to cater more for the Japanese market. This is not opinnion, this is evidence based on fact. Gamespot know what they are talking about. Microsoft will have my money for the next console I'm very confident of that. Not only are the graphics better, but it also serves as a better multimedia hub, with the app offering free music of any variety, and Zune offering downloadable movies. 360 owns the ps3 in every way. Fact, with evidence to back up.

    Graphics comp

    Most people know that's the case, this isn't news. Games are developed and optimized for the 360 because it's a simpler piece of hardware, and then ported to the PS3, and these ports usually result in issues. This will not change for the life of the PS3 and 360. PS3 will always get the inferior ports unfortunately. The fact is, PS3 exclusives, games designed solely for the PS3 hardware, are superior graphically to any of those cross platform games, or any 360 exclusive games. And sales have nothing to do with anything. The Wii is outselling them both, is the Wii the best system then? I didn't think so.

    360 better in every way - proof is in the pudding

    dude gamespot is a 360 fanboy oh and i and a few others saw your video about saying resident evil 5 is better on the 360. BULL SHIT!! it was a clear win for ps3 and wtf are you all doing comparing them at 720p or putting ps3 on 720p and 360 on 1080p. make another video showing them both on 1080p under the settings. because i won't believe that 360 graphics are better until i see real setting evidence, oh and about light and darkness on games like batman reset your lighting settings. i really do believe that every website says 360 graphics are better because it sales more units. and besides home and games don't load that slow anymore. our games loads a slight bit slower oh and your GTA4 on 360 got smothered by ps3s version. my friend compared his 360 to his ps2 just like i did on youtube videos and found out that 360 doesn't look much better than ps2 does. oh and ps3 has more option settings to adjust it to your likings and my ps3 runs nice and smooth, last ps3 fat played it every chance i had

    for 3 years. questions that

    for 3 years. questions that they never mentioned. which console scratches discs more? which console gets more in game features and detail besides just on 1 thing like characters? does 360 have hd? which console freezes up less? which console is actually quiter and i want a reviewer who runs them both for a full 30 minutes each. only slim systems allowed no 360 slim vs ps3 fat or 360 fat and ps3 slim. its gotta be fair. on the box show us the results side by side. i know ps3 slim has a 360 slim beat there because i saw it with my own 2 eyes. this is far from over because i'm spilling microsoft's secrets such as what can you do with $60 and did bill steal other guys ideas like his college mate steve? tisk tisk no wander why apple hates you and making an application for ps3. i don't trust you. a billionair asking for $60? bill i don't like you but you can change this.

    You're got it backward my friend

    The claim that games are developed and optimized for 360 is a distortion of the truth. Take the Crysis games for example, the devs have created an engine optimized for BOTH consoles, were it pushes both consoles to the max and yet the results are still very similar. NONE of the Crysis games were ported to the PS3 from the 360, and that applies to most multi-format games over the second half of this gen, where most have been developed on both consoles in parallel. The games are similar because in terms of power, both consoles ARE similar. The PS3 has the CPU edge, the 360 has the GPU edge, but overall (thanks to the CPU's floating point capabilities) the PS3 has slightly more power for those devs with the resources to make the most of it. The PS3 has more exclusive devs trying to push the hardware to the max, but the 360 exclusives like the Gears or War series and the latest Forza (4) and latest Halo (4) were easily on par with PS3 exclusives in like genres. The same devs who got the most out of the PS2 and XBox last gen were the same devs who got the most out of the PS3 and 360 this gen, hence the quality of exclusives are as much about the devs as it is the hardware. :)

    So true ps4 guru

    I've never heard anyone say that they weren't releasing a game for the ps3 because it isn't capable of handling it. Yet I'm noticing developers talking about ps3 getting beautiful exclusives because the 360 just "can't handle it." Prime example - Game developer Sucker Punch says that Infamous 2, which in it's current state is only using about 50% of ps3's gaming power is already too much for the 360 to handle. And it's already well known that the 360 could never pull off a game like Heavy Rain, with it's beautiful graphics and amazing attention to detail. Just because certain developers don't put the effort into utilizing the ps3's abilities doesn't mean it isn't the superior system. They are in the business to make as much money as possible, not necessarily make the best product possible (two very different goals). So in conclusion, quit trying to convince yourself the 360 is actually better because you're a fanboy.


    You'll notice that developers who say such things are either owned by Sony, such as Naughty Dog, or have long-standing exclusive contracts with Sony (that usually predate the existence of either console), such as Sucker Punch Productions. You'll also notice that usually the reason has to do not with the hardware of the competing console being inferior to the host console, but usually purely *because* of the fact that the game has been tailor-made to the eccentricities of the host console. Uncharted was a great example of that - they developed such aspects as data streaming exclusively for the PlayStation 3, to an extent that they simply wouldn't work on *any* other hardware architecture without significant re-writes, no matter how powerful that hardware architecture may be. In actuality, there's nothing really stopping either console from running either console's exclusive games other than corporate politics and the need for expensive coding re-writes.


    Sony bought Sucker Punch a while ago. Its not just a long standing exclusive contract anymore.


    ps4 compert to ps3 is 200% better LOL

    Xbox sucks

    360 graphics r similar to the ps2 graphics thats why xbox cant ever compare to the ps3

    Are you blind?

    Sir wtf? Do you need glasses? The graphics are bassically the same some people and yes i know i spell basically wrong

    xbox sucks

    we got blu ray, rechargible remotes, no three rings of death, better graphics, no gient brick in the back, face it XBOX SUCKS and the ps3 has better games so shut the heck up

    Sounds like the lies of a fanboy

    I read the article and yet I still can't find any edvience to support the claim that the xbox has better graphics. I mean sure certian games have better graphic's on the 360 but the reverse can also be said. But unlike you I'm not gonna waste my time looking for a most likely biased view, besides unless your a casual gamer (which I doubt you are) then graphics should be on the bottom of your list of requirements, I mean after all the diffrences in the article you shown are so miniscule that you wouldn't even notice until someone pointed them out for you. Besides you need to remember that a games graphics are just decided by the console but by the game studio and how much money there willing to put in to the creation of the game itself, so if the studio put more money in to the xbox release then the ps3 then the graphics will be better on xbox. Im not saying that is the case, but it's a possibilty and because it's a possibilty you would be a fool to assume that the graphics are always better on the xbox, it's more of a game by game thing then it is a console by console thing anyway. Besides I'm biased has hell but I still ain't seen a game world on xbox has pretty has the one in GoW4 yet, and it's kinda old now. And on the multimedia hub everything you can do on the xbox you can more or less do on the ps3 with the exception of certian in-game multi-player things, but thats to be expected after all the xbox is a multiplayer system. But when it comes down to it the only thing "stale and stagnent" here is your evidence. Though it's wrong to call it evidence, because what it is, is an opinion with a few examples. Which I'm sure any ps3 fanboy could disprove easily. I mean saying every game on the ps3 has better graphics because of a few examples is like saying every american is a murder because we have a murder here and there. I mean people do it all the time I'm sure, but there just bigots, and your just jumping to conclusion. But all in all I'd give the PS3 a 9.5/10, where has I'd give the 360 a 9/10 since they still haven't done much of anything to truely stop the red ring of death. Then followed by the wii at .5/10, I mean honestly can't we all put hate where it belongs right on top of that crappy system, instead of on the ps3 and the 360, after all there both marvels of modern technology. Damn, the pickiness of human beings won't amaze me again if I leave another 35 years.

    i know

    ps3 has better controller graphics and every thing about the ps3 is way better

    I agree

    The next generation of consoles will probally belong to sony because they just make things better than microsoft,and im saying this eventhough im not a fan boy( i dont even own a PS3). My freind owns all 3 of this gen. systems, and his PS3 runs the best, while his 360 keeps getting the red ring(3 TIMES!).

    xbox sucks

    thats it

    One word

    "BLU-RAY" Need I say more?

    Systems are equal.

    Well if you ask me. I think the outcome is going to be the same as PS3 vs. Xbox. Why I think this? -They both have Pros and Cons. -They are both competition. -The Wii HD will not make it through. -PS4 will have better features. -Xbox 720 will have a larger online community and more Exclusive games. -They are both fun, by the looks of it. -They both have fanboys. "XBOX is soo much better than the Gaystation"-example of Xbox Fanboy, "Gaybox blows goat, PS4 wins, eat your s*** Xbox fanboys" -example of PS fanboy. you see my point right? In the end, it all comes down to preference.

    larger comunity?

    right now the ps3 is like 3mil behind the 360 so i dont see how the 720 will have a larger community based on what? if we said those 3mil the ps3 is behind 360 are silver subs which is not crazy to say that silver subs are way more than that then ps3 community is probably bigger as of now or is fair to assume the're equal


    ps3 is the best hands down and nuthing can beat. even the ps4 will struggle beting it we got god of war they got the rrod

    Am I an Idiot? (Rhetorical)

    I actually had an Xbox when I got my PS3, yet sold it to get games for my PS3 when I bought it. If anyone would have asked me a year prior about PS3 vs. Xbox, I would've said "Only idiots like PS3." Well, consider me an idiot but, I dont remember Xbox having FREE (wish I could emphasize more) online play, the best game ever created (MGS4), anything like PS Home, Blu ray, total internet connectivity, ability to sync music to MP3 players, or such an astounding game as LittleBigPlanet. (Oh... and I typed this from a PS3!)

    I'm typing from a PS3 also!!

    One of my cousins was a XBOX fanboy that looooovvveeeedddd those shooting games that all looked the same. In time he got a PS3 for xmas. A month later, the xbox could be seen covered in dust.

    The airplane

    MAybe i suck or w.e, but wen playing cod on the ps3 in ur vid you were on a plane.. wen do you play that in COD


    You do it after you finish the game its a little easter egg in modern warfair 1.

    PS3 should have won this round


    360 won it fair and square

    The PS3 controller is a great controller the layout is fantastic however ergonomically its not as good as the xbox 360s and the build quality is not as good as the 360s. For them reason i'd say that they 360s controller won it fair and square. I have had a problem with the PS3 controller where if watching a movie, video or using playtv and i put the controller down it can sometime rewind or fast forward it.

    xbox fanboy

    listen hear you just dont know how to use it right and the only reason he won is because he is a 360 owner and anyone that even thinks of tuching an xbox 360 must be on pot.


    You lay down the PS3 controller so you can use the bathroom. You lay down the xbox controller so you can go search for more batteries. Who wins? I know we all know.

    Why people are raging here

    Why people are raging here :) I own PS3 and I tried both controllers, I'd swap to xbox any day cause it is better. There are some drawbacks, but the video pretty much says it. Battery life is no issue, cause you can just get 5m cable and load while you play. That's what I do. Only drawbacks are shit store and LOUD noise in home theater use for PS3 that I can come up with. Controllers is good, but it could be a lot better.


    Couldn't have said it any better PS4 Guru! Final Fantasy is a perfect example of the demonstration that Blu-Ray is beyond conventional disk players! 1 disk for the PS3 and far better graphics compared to 4 discs on the 360 and the graphics attention to detail isn't close! PS3 has got the puddin!

    360 better in every way - proof is in the pudding pt2

    for 3 years. and she only froze up online. sony please update this browser. oh and i hope my id works on ps4 because i'll be watching it until the slims come out, i had every playstation on every size except a fat psp. i only had a slim 1. which my sister's friend dropped and broke. but anyways y do ps2 have usb ports. my fat ps2 has em but i only used daxter psp game to unlock stuff from jakx. oh and i don't wanna see jak and daxter ruined again. jak lost frontier could've ruined its reputation and LOTS OF PEOPLE LOVE THAT GAME. make it good and possibly add multiplayer features to get lots of costumers. but yeah is it true 360's scratches it more? what about ps3 servers truthfully run smoother? what about ps3 freezing up less than 360? can 360 get 2TB drives? what about anything off brand compatible except tv and yes monitors? are 360 discs downloadable to pcs? smart move by sony with blue ray. sony only correction you need is make ps4 buttons r2 and l2 like ps2s version. oh and i wanna hear my music online

    Xbox sucks

    playstation is superior in everyway

    for 3 years. questions that

    for 3 years. questions that they never mentioned. which console scratches discs more? which console gets more in game features and detail besides just on 1 thing like characters? does 360 have hd? which console freezes up less? which console is actually quiter and i want a reviewer who runs them both for a full 30 minutes each. only slim systems allowed no 360 slim vs ps3 fat or 360 fat and ps3 slim. its gotta be fair. on the box show us the results side by side. i know ps3 slim has a 360 slim beat there because i saw it with my own 2 eyes. this is far from over because i'm spilling microsoft's secrets such as what can you do with $60 and did bill steal other guys ideas like his college mate steve? tisk tisk no wander why apple hates you and making an application for ps3. i don't trust you. a billionair asking for $60? bill i don't like you but you can change this.

    also bill STOP TAKING SONY

    also bill STOP TAKING SONY EXCLUSIVES YOUR FAULT FOR NOT TAKING THE CHANCE ON GETTIN A HEADSTART. you took GTA1-4 midnight club 1-3, NFS series, spyro, i assume sly as i don't see him listed as an exclusive and crash bandicoot neither, dead or alive mafia 2 killzone 2 and more. how many games do i see sony taking from you? alot less than you took. it used to about gameplay and sony has that and graphics. 360 however i see only has kinect going for it and no your shooter games aren't better. the rock in halo reach looks faker than jak3 desert rocks. it looks paper thin. and i have 360 friends and a step brother that agrees that ps3 graphics are better than you gave them credit for. i know people with both systems usually agrees, my nephew agrees, and i saw people return their 360 on a multiplatform game like rainbow 6 vegas on ps3's. i saw a comment saying a guys ps3 graphics are smoother. and RRLD happened 2x on first 360 sold it for ps3 games and rebought it for gears of war 2 lost interest in 360 altogether


    I had a shot of playing both consoles and both are good :)

    ps3- hands down!

    I've had my 80g backwards compatable ps3 for about 4 yrs and have had only minor issues occur (such as freezing or network issues), while it seems like everyone I've known with a 360 has has red-ring at some point. Now if someone were to poll 360 owners to get an accurate ratio of those who've had red-ring (within a range of different time-ranges), I'd bet the farm that over 75% of them would answer that they did after 4 yrs. So while XBox owners believe they have a more powerful system (thanks to developers taking the easy route and developing for 360 than porting to ps3), they forget they bought two of 'em. Meanwhile Bill G is taking intergalactic vacations via personal jetpack and folding your $600 (300 per system x 2) and placing it next to his personal piece of folded space time fabric in his billionaire wallet. Now I know he donates large sums to multiple charities, but isn't Japan in more need of economic support? I know I'm biased but really, is build quality a factor or not? ...did I mention Blu-Ray?

    Will New Be Better?

    (Resource: owner of Xbox, Xbox 360 elite, Playstation 2, Original Nintendo systems, Sega. & has experience and knowledge's of the Ps3, Ps4, and Xbox 360 pro systems) Yes the generation of xbox 360 and Ps3 have there pros and cons now, but will the next generation be better? If you look at the video, specifically at round 2, the features change for the better or worse, but for every next generation or improvement of sku, a con is fixed and the system has a new pro. The Xbox 360 cons so far needs to work on designing a system that doesn't get the Red Ring Of Death x.x , Online Connection, Input and Output Availability, Power and Battery Use, Controller Style, Wifi, Security, Price, and Graphics Also the Xbox 360 earlier systems like the pro have been known to fail due from poor ability to maintain function pros Although the Xbox 360 have came far with technologic accessories like headsets like the Turtle Beaches, custom covers, and other, along with satisfying there customers with frequent updates of what is happening in the xbox world. Also with news of moving into motion like the Kinect.. (but is hiding back on movements of 3D, and the kinect still has many bugs that its on the majority review of "wait until they come out with a better version") The Ps3 cons Much work is needed for there Security, as known someone hacked into Sony, taking users private information like credit card info, and such other. And leaving gamers without Online. The hardware needs to be expanded and pushed to its limits, not meet dead end, if so the graphics can be improved. The Online is free, but that doesn't mean its good, for Sony needs to work on achieving better online connection This could be depending, but a PS3 needs to have better stability, there have been reports of the 'Disc Spinner Of Death', where the system mount-functions and kills the game disc and/or the internal part for reading the disc breaks. Other Physical breakage from overtime use or physically damaging system occurs on a often basis, but depending on what breaks, most of it is replaceable / fixable; but I mean breakage and damages happen with any system, including the Xbox systems The Controllers are great, but as mentioned in the videos, work can be made to adjust the back triggers for finger comfort and so no buttons are accidentally hit when set down pros Awesome Graphics and Sound! (better than the Xbox 360's by far) [also depends on TV, but effort the system puts in for the graphics is what is being counted] The controller life being rechargeable rather than going through hundreds of batteries or having to recharge batteries all the time is great! The Input and Output has a lot of options, and located on both the front and the back of the system The Ps3 is better for those interested in multipurpose uses, like to watch DVDs, Blu Ray, Netflix (movies on demand using internet), Music, Radio, Social Networking... its like a media computer but with a gaming attachment.. and like serious gaming, not addicted games computer gaming. So back to the question after looking at what the systems are now, the Sony playstation is heading towards motion, 3D, Wireless and is hopeing to get better and invest more into their gaming systems Microsoft Xbox is heading towards 'pure' motion, not so much in 3D, but non projecting 3D graphics are hoped to be improved. Also, Microsoft is looking to add more features such like the built in features, and incorporating multipurpose, possibly pushing towards linking with the phone community i assume based on alliances they're making with companies. Also some gaming advice; don't buy the new newest thing, wait until its updated don't leave your systems on, it causes damage and bills out of your wallet And if a company says they're coming out with a new generation while your determining to buy a current generation process.. wait a bit so its not like you buy the pro, which is as known to suck, and the elite coming out few weeks later, and everything better in FEW WEEKS TIME

    lol whaterver u say xbox sucks

    and laggy lol. stop trying to prove its worth ahaha. try harder my friend. they spend too much on giving out free and advertisement. yr one of the victim

    look toward the future

    look when the 360 was released the ps3 was released after. As a result microsoft gained millions more in revenue than sony and thats a fact and in today's market its hard to see how sony can make up that loss in revenue. However because of the delay new technology emerged during that delay ie. blu ray sony can do alot more with the ps3 hardware. So even if the ps3 seems better Microsoft has a lot more money to spend on delvelopment on the 720 than sony. When the next gen consolues come out if sony releases the ps4 at the same time as the 720 the consoles will be the same theoretically as both companies has same access to same technology to build there consoles. But if one waits that company will lose millions to the other but may get better technology if it devolps however its and extreme risk for sony now 2 do that again and microsoft will want to relase first anyway so if sony releases at the same time the ps vs xbox war will be over as the consoles should be around the same but if sony waits it may put them out of business either my friends when these consoles are released the war is over.


    You do realize that as of July 2011, more PS3's have been sold over 360's, despite the 1-year delay?


    Because they keep breaking or frying.

    PLAYSTATION owns everyone

    i have all the 3 consoles in my room. But i got my xbox 360 is for free lol. the only reason why xbox 360 is selling so much is because theyre giving it out free most of the time lol. and they spend millions on advertising. look at sony. dont need advertisement but higher sale then xbox 360 despite the 1 year delay and less advertisement lol. Microsoft just got too much money and probably doing this for the fun of it lol. japan are too genius. try harder microsoft.


    Sony is a $60 billion compony if They didnt make enough from the ps3 They can just get money theyve earnt elsewhere

    xbox sucks

    i dont know if its youtube but go to google vidios and enter xbox sucks the true story. the music is retated but the words are all great truth.
