Re: Ps3 or xbox360

My point is this. You have already paid for a console. And a game, full price game, And if the game has good multiplayer game in it. And you will need to pay money every month to play it online, it really a no brainer. Get a ps3. The online community is huge. Reason being the psn is free. So kick the xbot and go for ps3. It FTW.

Tell that to WoW players alright?

Both consoles have it's pros and cons. $60+ annual subscription isn't really a lot if you always buy PS3 game day 1 considering most PS3 games costs $5-10 more than X360 version. Buy 10 multiplatform titles on the PS3 and you already paid more.

To TS, end of the day, it's always best to own more than one machine.

That why I'm not a WOW player lolz. I still feel it right to play online free as i have already paid for the full game.

Re: Ps3 or xbox360

Best is buy PC.

Can use for work, play, and everything else.

Consoles only have 1 thing going for them, and that is exclusives.
The point is that if you are going to buy a console, you are buying it for the exclusive games.
Games like God of War 3, Uncharted 3, Halo: Reach, Gears of War 3 etc.


To be completely honest, most games on PC are cheaper, some are free, and many can be modded and developers also update their PC games with patches more often.

PC games also have the best graphics and community. You also dont have to worry about silly nonsense like R1, R2, R3 games not working with your account and online play is completely free so long as you have an internet connection.

PC also has the most number of exclusive games and are able to run multiple tasks at once compared to any console.

Re: Ps3 or xbox360

There are a few reasons why PS3 edge over xbox360 in recent years. There was no doubt on my part 360 was better than PS3 in the earlier years but you should get a PS3 now.

1) Paid online

Xbox Live cost $60 per year. Are you willing to pay for it when you're already paying for your internet and Microsoft did nothing since you're using our own hardware and connection.

2) Microsoft's philosophy

Live was raised $10 recently.

Live is a paid service YET Microsoft announced there will be more ads on it in future. You paid money to use a paid service to access to a third party service ( netflix ) to watch paid advertisement.

Ridiculous.

They had repeatedly state that they will not change their formula if its successful for them. Microsoft is behaving like Sony's PS2 era. They got too big for their own good.

3) Lack of Exclusivity

Unless you loved Halo and Gears to death and is willing to buy the console for these 2 games, the xbox pales in comparison to PS3 exclusivity library.

Beside, in recent years, it's apparent Microsoft is chasing after the casual market neglecting the core gamers whom bought xbox/360 and defined the brand.

If you are looking for mutliplatform, get a PC. They look way better than on consoles and FPS work excellently well with mouse and keyboard. If you're looking for exclusive console games, get a wii or a ps3.

4) Time-exclusivity DLC and Kinect

Microsoft isn't like Sony, backing game developers ( heavy rain, little big planet ). But to differentiate their service, all they do was to paid the game developer for time-exclusivity downloadable content which will appear on other platform ( PC/PS3 ) sooner or later.

Instead of making exclusive games, that's all they had done.

Kinect, a device to capture the casual, has no good games up to date yet. Microsoft is impressive in marketing as 18 million users, noticeably Americans, bought this device when it has hardly justify its price tag. Where are the good Kinect games?

Re: Ps3 or xbox360

I just found out something else about the X360: It doesn't power it's own internal clock. That means that each time you switch off the mains, your console's internal clock will reset to 2005. You have to log in to Xbox Live to update the time. Each and every time you turn it on again.

I'd never noticed it before until now, for some reason. In any case, this 'feature' messed up all my Witcher 2 gamesaves because some of them are dated 2005 and some 2012. Now, I have to turn on my router and manually log into Xbox Live each time I turn on my Xbox to play a single-player offline game.

I have no words for the amount of fail Microsoft put into this, so I can only express it with this:
