The Wii is the lead seller by a mile. Its an unfair comparison between PS3 and 360 but just to let you know the PS3 has sold pretty close to have as many 360's in a quarter of the time.

There's a lot of stories going around that Microsoft's production costs have gone down significantly in recent months.

http://www.joystiq.com/2007/07/09/microsoft-cuts-costs-analysist-predicts-price-drops/

I would be pretty surprised if they didn't announce some sort of 360 price cut at their E3 press conference tomorrow night.

These are the latest numbers I could find. If someone has update numbers, please post them.

PS3 (released 11/17/2006): 1.4 million in North America, 3.6 million world wide
360 (released 11/22/2005): 5.4 million in North America, 5.8 million world wide
Wii (released 12/8/2006): 3.1 million in North America, 8.1 million world wide

That cannot be right. The 5.8 Million mark isn't counting Europe, Australia, or elsewhere. They've sold 5.4 Million in the US as of this May, and around 400,000 in Japan as of July 2nd.

Are Xbox 360 owners that insecure with their system that they need to come into the a PS3 thread and try and force feed their system down others' throats? Is this whole "Console Wars" thing really that big of a deal to anyone? It just seems like XBox 360 players have to prove to the world that their system is the best. Honestly, who cares? Some of you people need to stop trying to get the rest of the world to buy the XBox 360 and play your own damn system.


Note: This isn't directed at anyone in particular and it stems from not just this thread, but numerous other video game threads I've read in the past. I currently do not own a 360, PS3, or Wii. I just find it weird that PS3 and Wii owners don't care about the other two systems but 360 owners have to try and establish a superiority over the other two.

Glad there is a drop in price, I want to get one eventually for GTA4 and Metal Gear Solid 4. I've seen some of the screens for the NCAA Football that is coming to PS3 this year and it looks like it's going to have the same crappy player models from last year's Madden so I will probably just not get it this year. However, I definitely plan on getting one for MGS and GTA, I hope Fallout 3 comes to PS3, too. That would pretty much seal the deal for me.

Im surprised to hear you say that about the player models because everything ive seen they look great and different madden sites are showing players from 07 to 08 and not only do the 08 ones lok better but different as well.

care to explain? the ps3 also got 2 videos of GTA 4 so what content are you talking about

also "Sony Pictures Releasing International said Sunday that the international boxoffice for its films this year passed the $1 billion mark faster than ever before in the distributor's history, making Sony the first studio to reach that milestone in 2007."

Xiomera I don't have a 360 but here are the pros and cons

PS3- Pros- This system power and blu-ray disc space let alone can give you the best graphics available.
Cons- Many of the developers have said that working with a ps3 was way too hard and most of the games out of now is only using 20% of the ps3 power. Also not being out for a year hasn't helped with not many games being out right now.

360- Pros- Games, Games, and more Games
Cons- With a 9gb dvd disc many developers are having more trouble with that then with the ps3 technology. Many problems/bugs that the 360 is having are all first-gen.

My own reason (I can't speak for others): I made a big investment in the 360, and more success for the 360 means more quality games coming to the system. There were a lot of PlayStation 3rd party franchises (MGS; Devil May Cry (which is coming), Final Fantasy) that I would like to play without having to pay 500 more dollars.

I cant speak for the 360 but for the ps3 its because developers not being able to use the full technology of the ps3 and most of the 3rd part games are all ports from the 360. Some games that were ports from the 360 got more content for the ps3.

It's not like with the head start (and price) that the 360 got on the Wii and PS3 that there won't be a ton of quality titles coming to it. They have already built a substantial sales lead in North America and neither the PS3 or Wii are likely to catch it. Some games like Final Fantasy (Square Enix recently said they have no plans to release a future title on XBox) aren't going to come over, despite the sales. I don't know, I guess I'm trying to say that convincing 5-10 people on an NFL message board to buy a system isn't going to make a difference in sales. Those 5-10 people aren't going to be enough to take a PS3 or Wii exclusive game and turn it into a multi-platform game.

i dont think 360s could use some of nintendos games. like for example it would be a hard process to turn a motion heavy game such as the upcoming mario and sonic at the olympic games or wario ware or rayman and turn it into a 360 gmae sucessfully. but games like zelda could go over easily.

I've got a Wii which is a ton of fun for multiplayer games, but I want either a 360 or PS3 for online gaming (mostly sports, FIFA, NCAA, MADDEN, TIGER).

How do the online networks compare between Sony & Microsoft? Do they both have paid subscriptions? If so, how much do they cost?

As far as I understand the 360 network is the best when it comes to online console gaming, but I'd like to get some opinions.

That's tight.

Apparently the 360 is $50/12 months ($4.16/month), $20/3 months ($6.66/month), or $8/ month.

07-10-2007, 06:22 PM
With the recent price drop of the PS3 and the expected price drop of the 360, I am considering finally investing in one or the other. I haven't decided which yet, but I think I am leaning towards the PS3 because I like the selection of games better. Games like Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Final Fantasy XIII, God of War III, Grand Turismo 5, Killzone 2, Silent Hill 5, and Zone of the Enders 3 all appeal to me more than some of the 360 exclusives. The only 360 games that I would really want to have are Fable 2, Forza Motorsport 2, and Halo 3.

Price isn't really a concern to me. My brother really wants a PS3 and would be willing to go 50/50 on it with me. I'd only have to pay $250 for it. He said he wouldn't mind a 360, but he probably would only put $100 towards it. So they'll virtually cost me the same either way.

I still need to look into more, as I have never invested my own money into a system (PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and GameCube were all Christmas gifts) and I want to get the right one. I am however, slightly leaning towards the PS3.

With the recent price drop of the PS3 and the expected price drop of the 360, I am considering finally investing in one or the other. I haven't decided which yet, but I think I am leaning towards the PS3 because I like the selection of games better. Games like Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Final Fantasy XIII, God of War III, Grand Turismo 5, Killzone 2, Silent Hill 5, and Zone of the Enders 3 all appeal to me more than some of the 360 exclusives. The only 360 games that I would really want to have are Fable 2, Forza Motorsport 2, and Halo 3.

Price isn't really a concern to me. My brother really wants a PS3 and would be willing to go 50/50 on it with me. I'd only have to pay $250 for it. He said he wouldn't mind a 360, but he probably would only put $100 towards it. So they'll virtually cost me the same either way.

I still need to look into more, as I have never invested my own money into a system (PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and GameCube were all Christmas gifts) and I want to get the right one. I am however, slightly leaning towards the PS3.

EDIT: Consider this the official PS3 thread.

If you choose 360 you could hang out with me on XBL.

I'm proud to say that i just bought a PS3 yesterday.

I found it on Craig's List w/ 2 controllers, 3 games, and a warrenty card that hasn't been sent in yet. All for $500.

And it wasn't even hard to convince my girlfriend that it was a deal that i couldn't pass up!!!

Suggestions for games to check out?

There suppossed to be an announcement of a big ps3 exclusive today. Hopefully it is Haze. That game looks so awesome, it will make Halo look like garbage. It is being made by the developers who made 3 of the best First Person Shooters ever in Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, and Timesplitters.

I really enjoyed the original Killzone. I know a lot of people were disappointed because PS2 fanboys hyped it up to be a "Halo killer" and it didn't live up to the ridiculous hype. However, I thought it ended up being one of the more underrated games for PS2. This new one looks awesome.

I'm still trying to convince my fiance that a PS3 is a good investment. She said maybe in the new year. I'm very sad. But she said then we wouldn't be able to afford the Hustler channel, and while I know that isn't true, I like the porn channel too much to take the chance.

But seriously, if/when I do get one, there's so many games I can't wait to play. Call of Duty 4 looks awesome, and of course MGS4, RE5, FFXIII, the other FF games coiming out, Assassins Creed etc. I also read in EGM that the Gears of War crew is going to start developement on a PS3 Gears like exclusive. 2008 could be a good year for Sony.

I'm not sure how video game developmental "teams" work, but didn't Microsoft help in the making of Gears? On IGN, it's listed as a game by Microsoft. Which, would lead me to wonder why it'd be put on the PS3.

ironman4579
07-11-2007, 05:09 PM
I'm not sure. You're right, it would be a little weird. I found the EGM, so here's exactly what it said(and it was this months, the one with Soul Calibur 4 on the front)

"Though Sony boasts that the PS3's hearty insides make it's games look snazzier, none of 'em have been as impressive as developer Epic's Gears of War on the 360. It doesn't help that Unreal Engine 3 (which runs GOW) doesn't work all that well on the PS3. Of course, that may change. Word is that Sony is sizing up Epic for a nice money hat to make the Unreal Engine 3 work better on the PS3. But more importantly, it plans to fund a Gears of War like exclusive game."

After rereading that and typing it in, I just realized it doesn't actually say that the same development team would even be working on it at all. Just that it would be a Gears of War like game, and only if they can get the Unreal Engine 3 to work better. So there's a lesson for you kids. Always question. Basically forget everything I said, and just cross your fingers and hope.

2k owns the rights to produce all universal baseball games. Sony can make games for the play station because it is their system. Well, it is something like that...

Oh how I wish that EA and 2K can just hug and make up and let the mlb license and NFL license be used by all. Without competition, there is no point as they could just make the same old game year after year and there would be no other option.

Anyone know when the license is up? I think I read something like 2009, and that is too damn long...

Also, MVP NCAA 2007 was a great game aside from the fact that it is college instead of the pros.

I got a PS3 December 12 a 20gb and play it alot. I have alot of game saves, music, pictures on it and have only used up 1 or 2 gb. Once madden 08 comes out and if your really crunched for space just delete 07 madden saves.

EA games tend to have more problems than others, or at least I have heard. The few times I have played PS3 online I have had no problems. The experience is pretty solid overall. It doesn't match the quality of XBox Live, but if you are a casual online gamer who doesn't want to pay $50 then it is more than adequate.

...1080i is still great. Standard DVDs are only 420p, so watching Blu-Ray is still a giant step up. The DVD scaler that you posted would be pointless to buy. Your tv can only upscale to as high as the actual tv can go, which is 1080i in your case. And on top of that, the PS3 can upscale dvds anyway.

How is NCAA 08 on PS3? like is it choppy or very smooth because i heard its suppost to be running on 30FPS for Madden on ps3 and 60fps on xbox360. I have a ps2 and it sucks so i need a new system and i dont know which one to do, i rather get ps3 because i have an HDTV so i can use blu-ray.

The difference between 30 FPS and 60 FPS may seem like a lot, but it really isn't a very noticeable difference. The XBox 360 version will run a little smoother but don't expect the PS3 version to be choppy or of poor quality.

Does the PS3 have an onboard OS or something resmbling that?

Would it recognize an external USB H/D. You can buy 1 TB hard drives now, and with that, I would think PS3 to be able to watch DVD's.. I would supposed you could rip or download movies to watch on an external HDD on PS3.. would be sweet.

it recognizes those traveldrive things. I took stuff off my computer (pictures/music/movies) put them on traveldrive and then put it in my PS3 and copied them.

Alright I'm sorry If I'm repeating something, but how's the online play on the PS3. I heard that when you play MLB Games and Madden the connection always breaks up in the late innings and last few minutes of the game. Is that true?

The only time I've had a problem with disconnections is when people just quit out on a game, like if you're winning and then make a pick they'll take out the ethernet cord or turn off the system or something.

Xbox 360 already has a far larger collection of games. Yes, PS3 is playing catch-up and attempting to match them but how does that make them better?

Graphics being far superior is a guess and there is no evidence to support that. As of now, Xbox 360 has better graphics. In the future, who knows. The difference will be marginal at best anyways.

99% of people do not need a Blu-Ray player nor will they for years. Plus, combo drives are already coming out making single-format drives basically useless in the longrun.

Right, I'm an Xbox 360 fanboy since I own neither console and have no affiliation with either side. I'm simply stating that the Xbox 360 is the better console at this point and saying the PS3 will surpass it is purely a guess.

Sony can cram all the technology and buzz words they want into the PS3 but until it makes the user experience more enjoyable it is pointless.

"Already"? Why would you say already? Of course it has a larger collection of games, it came out a year before.
Graphics being far superior is a guess and there is no evidence to support that. As of now, Xbox 360 has better graphics. In the future, who knows. The difference will be marginal at best anyways.
The Unreal engine and the White Engine were specifically built to optimize the PS3's hardware. Look at Unreal Tournament, the graphics blow Gears of War out of the water. They'll be released at the same time relative to the life-span of the consoles.
99% of people do not need a Blu-Ray player nor will they for years. Plus, combo drives are already coming out making single-format drives basically useless in the longrun.
Combo drives? As in universal hd-dvd and blu-ray players? Those are a waste of money. Blu-Ray has already won. More space, support, same codecs, and Blockbuster has already dropped hd-dvd for Blu-Ray even online. Blu-Ray is outselling HD-DVD at a rate of 3-1. HD-DVD won't be around by 2008. And the 99% bit wasn't true at all. Blu-Ray in a sense is selling faster than DVD was when it first came out.

that's simply untrue. the hardware in the ps3 is superior, in terms of pure graphics processing power, to what microsoft put into the 360. case in point, ATi, the company MS went with, is no longer even competing with nVidia, the company Sony went with, for high end graphics on the computer. they haven't been competitive in at least two years. i have no idea why anyone continues to believe the machines, at similar points in their lifespan are anywhere close in regards to graphics power. debate the CEL silliness all you want, but to say the 360 is, has been or ever will be "ahead" in graphics is simply false.

True. PS3 hasnt had the lifespan of the 360 and already is producing great games. I heard that only 30% of the PS3's power is being used for Madden this year which means when they make the game for PS3 next and port it to 360 the PS3 version is gonna be miles ahead of the 360. As well 80% of confirmed third party games set for 2009 release will be ported from PS3, which is great. Blu-ray is outselling hd by 75% 3/1. Im gettin my PS3 a few days before Madden drops.

How much "stuff" are you talking about? 60 GB should be more than enough to hold whatever you want. For NCAA a roster takes up 1275 KB, a campus legend takes up 5051, and a profile takes up 223 KB. Add all of that up you have less than 7 MB. There are 1000 MB in 1 GB. A Madden Franchise and Superstar Mode I would estimate take up a combined 10 MB.

Getting online is simple as can be. For you, just plug in the cable and connect (read instructions on how to establish connection). The bluetooth works really good as a headset but other regular ones work as well. I think they have to be usb though.

Basically, just get the system. It comes with a controller, so if have more then 1 person who wants to play then buy another controller. I think they are developing a new controller w/ a rumble pack which shouldn't be ready for a while now.

I would suggest purchasing a second controller, and possibly even a charger pack. I have four controllers, plug two in the ps3 when I can, and the other two are hooked up to the charger. Only problem is I don't have a game thats 4 players or more. LOL. FIFA will be, and thats going to be so bad.

Using your computer as a media device is awesome. Not to mention storing movies it's great.

Madden, theres 3000-4000 players online and 2000 at early morning. Also Warhawk this 28 is a MUST GET.

Wow. I typed up a response for you last night but it must not have posted correctly. I'll see what I can remember.

Not really right at this moment, but there are a bunch coming in the next three months. There are two games out right now that I want, but I think I'm going to make myself pass on so I can save my money. Those being Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Rainbow Six: Vegas. I am actually glad there isn't a ton out right now, so I can save my money for when all the good games hit. GRAW 2 (8/21) will probably be worth picking up. Warhawk (8/28) and Lair (8/30) look like they're going to be pretty good. I probably wouldn't classify those as must gets, but they'll be worth checking out. I am really looking forward to Heavenly Sword (9/12). Assassin's Creed (11/13) is definitely going to be a must get. Unreal Tournament (11/12) looks awesome. Half Life 2 Orange Box (11/13) is probably the 2007 game I'm most looking forward to. HL2 is my favorite FPS of all-time. Haze (11/19) is looking like a must get. Hopefull all of those games keep me busy until 2008 when Final Fantasy XIII, Devil May Cry 4, Killzone 2, Golden Axe, Silent Hill V, Soul Caliber IV, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Metal Gear Solid 4 are all expected to come out in the first four months.

GTA IV is going to be amazing. And the HD looks sick with the PS3. My friend uses it without HD and mine looks soo much better.
