as far as PS3 vs. XB360 goes, I like them both. PS3 for bluray, and XB360 for the media center, which is great for parties, cause I ahve a better system set up in the living room, so I can play my music

I'll give you a shiny .gif based cookie if you can find me a report showing that sony has actually made a profit from the PS3.

Personally i'd deem something thats been on the market for nearly three years, and hasn't made a profit, an epic fail. Agreed?

Yeah because it has an awesome game lineup. It was an incredibly promising platform in it's day, and developers jumped at the chance to get stuff onto it. Look where the developers are selling their rights now... To Sony? No.

In seven years time you'll be able to buy ps3 equivalent pc hardware for about $100. (also probably an actual ps3...)

Bluray is already outdated by the 500GB optical discs, plus, sony never actually made a game that USED an entire bluray disc other tha MGS4, which used about 80% iirc, not including buffer files....

I'm not being a biased cunt here, I'm just stating the facts, interpret this however you want. I just don't see the logic in buying something which has a bunch of useless features, that jack the price ridiculously high.

Grand theft auto 3, which pretty much revolutionised gaming was released less than a year after it's launch... Not to mention unreal tournament, Timesplitters, Gran Turismo 3, are those not big enough blockbusters for you?


Final edit; here's some lulzy reading.

Sony Has Lost More on the PS3 Than it Made on PS2

Of course, the Xbox 360, especially considering its $1 billion in replacement costs for faulty hardware, has likely cost Microsoft just as much, if not more. But Microsoft's entire foray into the videogame business has been a costly multi-billion dollar investment (Microsoft lost $4 billion on its original Xbox alone), whereas Sony's games division has only recently been forced to spend so heavily to hold on to its status in the games market (and to force the adoption of an HD media standard).
sorry xbro, a person with a ps3 and a pc has access to a larger and better video game library than a xbroke + pc

How do you reason that a console with less games than another suddenly has more when there's a pc involved? And yeah, MS has cash to blow .

because games that microsoft publishes come out for both xbox360 and windows. why would i want to pay 200-300 dollars (+a fee for XBL gold) for what is an essentially a stripped down windows PC with less functionality, when I can play the same games with my pre-existing hardware?

In logic plz?

You're saying that someone who owns a xbox and a pc, is limited to the number of games they can play on their pc? 'The fuck?

Do you get an invite to magicland where they have wonderful games not available to mere mortals upon purchase of a ps3?

Or are you talking about that "hack" that lets you play your pc games through your ps3? If so, just buy a damn HDMI to VGA cable, go pc > tv, and save yourself like $600.

no, im talking about the lack of incentive to buy an xbox360 over the ps3

basically with a ps3 and a pc, i can play almost every worthwhile game released on the 360, and that the games that i CANT play, dont hold a candle to some of the killer PS3 exclusives...

(... like god of war 3, mgs4, killzone 2, gt:5, lbp, demon's souls, quantam theory, heavy rain, uncharted 2, massive action game, ect)

i think you missed that part. essential to the argument

if you have a PC, theres no need to get an XBOX as you can play all the games already on PC (and some even on XBOX live on a PC)

buying a ps3 would cover any non-microsoft exclusive titles that you play on the PC

Uh, there's a thing called "exclusive titles" which remain console bound, this applies to the xbox and the ps3 equallly. So that's the most moot argument of the century.

brb im going to play some games that aren't shit.

And...? We're verging on a preference battle, rather than anything useful here.

I'm not arguing against your gaming preferences dude, if you like the ps3, keep it.

Stick your littlebigplanet disc up your arse sideways for all i care, if it makes you happy mate, whatever lights your candle. What you buy/choose/like/insert is generally unique, or we'd have one console and a very boring world.

I'm just pointing out that statistically/monetarily, and in my personal experience the 360 is the better console. Dont have to take the PS3 r00lz rebuttal just because it's been mentioned in the same sentence as a 360.
