Was there any question as to which had the better overall hardware? Obviously the PS3 does.

What are GFlops?

When the 360 brings out a game that looks as good as Uncharted 2, Killzone 2-3 and my personal favourite GoW 3, then I will agree with the statement, "The PS3 is only slightly more powerful than the 360" or "They are exactly the same when it comes to graphics"

the ps3 is the more powerful system but i think people make out the xbox is not capable of producing great graphics and time and time again it is.

heres a couple of questions for people, if people went soley for the most powerful hardware why wasnt the original xbox selling more than the ps2? and why wasnt the original xbox your focus point for gaming last generation?

No point of reference I think is the best answear. If you owned and enjoyed a PS1 and then the PS2 the following generation you were probably less likely to buy a console from a company that wasn't even established in the console market.

People don't go solely for the most powerful hardware, but that doesn't change the fact that the PS3 has the most powerful hardware.

Yeah, and they have every right to, just like Microsoft can brag about having the best online service. Whether or not those things are valued depends on the customer, not the corporation. Why wouldn't a corporation want to brag about everything their product does the best?

Like Stoney said, the minute a game graphically comes close to Killzone 2, Gran Turismo 5, and God of War III, then you can say that the difference isn't big enough to brag about.

The only verdict to me is that a shitload of multiplaform games are technically proven superior on the Xbox 360.

Why i ask? If PS3 has all those goodies and is such a powerhouse? I mean just look at this:



How can people still lick that consoles balls saying is just the best?
Cuz "some" of they're exclusives and nothing else...

simple truth: 360s best looking games dont look as good compared to ps3s best looking games.......but the gap isnt that big.

any exageration beyond a minor graphics gap is propaganda, nothing more.

besides......multiplats, the bread and butter of a consoles library, is where 360 really smacks PS3 around Smile

Strange, funding limits I suppose... But I always did expect the developers of these multiplat games to be able to actually DO something with all that spare power the PS3 has got tucked away...

Um, no it's not it.

The PS3 has a better CPU but that article is kinda dead wrong about somethings there...Like the Cell having "7 cores" when it's not cores its SPUs. 7 hardware threads for the Cell vs 6 hardware threads of the Xenon. The GPU on the X360 howver has a way better fillrate and shader architecture than the PS3's GPU yet they failed to mention that.

Oh and they mention stupid stuff like connectivity and video support. They gave PS3 the win for both those catergories even though the X360 has more USB 2.0 ports and less Sub-HD games than the PS3.

The article reaks of bias.

Yea, that article is full of BS. And FFS! They compare Backward compatibility which is a software thing not a hardware thing!

All of those games use a bunch of smoke and mirrors to look that good. And they are all very linear in nature. Games don't prove that one system is better hardware wise than the other. It's as stupid as saying the Xbox 360 was the best hardware because Gears 1 was graphics king for a while before those games for PS3 came out. You gotta look at the specs.

No, the only console I know that does BC through hardware is the 60 GB PS3 with it's emulation engine. But the X360's BC has always been harddrive/software related.

Smoke and mirrors? How so? "Oh, they don't really look good, they just pretend to look good." If the 360 had superior hardware, then developers would be able to pump out better-looking games, especially since the 360 has been out for almost five years. It's been out longer, and has a easier-to-learn architecture, yet the PS3, which is a younger and more complicated console, has been able to push out better graphics. I'd say overall it has superior hardware. That's not to say the 360 has bad graphics. I'm not saying that at all. Hell, my jaw dropped when I saw Alan Wake. The 360 has a lot of potential, but the PS3 has more.

It's not a "shitload", it's a few. Multiplats are generally the same on each console, with a few exceptions.

The gap between the 360's best-looking game (Alan Wake) and the PS3's best-looking game isn't THAT huge, but Alan Wake is way above most of the 360's exclusives. So while the PS3 has a plethora of amazing looking games, the 360 has one or two amazing looking games, neither of which match the PS3's exclusives.

As for multiplats, they're pretty much the same. There are a few exceptions, like Bayonetta, Red Dead Redemption, and Mafia II, but for the most part, the games are the same.
