better is because of the amount of time Xbox game developers have had time to work with the system.
i got i and p mixed up. Look it up though. if you have 1080i you wont see much difference then 360 and if you have the 720 i or p blue ray doesn't
reconize it and the blue ray drive downgrades to 480 which is not too good. The 360 might not be better graphically, but unless you have 1080p
(finally got the right version haha), you won't see much a difference, and if your playing on a 720i or p the 360 will actually seem better because
ps3 blue ray doesn't support it I believe.
The reason the games look slightly better has NOTHING to do with time to work with the system. They had just as much time to work with the PS3 system,
they just kept pushing the release date back because problems with the blue ray drive and such. They both been working on their games about the same
And someone up there said that they can't say much for the PS3's line-up for 2007. Lol, take one look at MGS4 (it'll be out November '07) and
you'll understand what next-gen graphics really mean. Even in it's current development phase it looks better than every game the 360 has out or is
to be released any time in 2007.
omg talk about a fanboy right here. MGS4 is one game, and the funny part is that it wont be any grpahically better then Halo 3. If you have the 1080p
and get the HD-DVD for 360 you get the same graphics again. Its just a matter of PS3 forcing you to get bluray whether you need it or not and 360
giving you the choice of whether or not you want HD-DVD.
Tell me what other PS3 exclusive games their will be? I can name 5 big 360 games right off the bat. Halo 3, Alan Wake, Lost Odyssey (grpahically
utilizing the 360 capabilities), then Halo Wars, Mass Effect, Fable 2, and possibly others since there are a couple which simply don't have enough
info about them out.
you dont have GTA anymore, its moved to 360. We already got a Final Fantasy and I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up getting another one. If MGS
does go to the 360 you dont really have much of anything thats exclusive to PS3.
for people like me who have a 480 HD and not a 1080p Ill stick to 360. If I got a 1080p, I would just get a HD-DVD, because the PS3 doesn't have any
games worth spending 600 dollars for a system for. I can get GTA on 360 when it comes out, I can get resident evil on 360 when it comes out. And the
original makers of the Final Fantasy games are on mistwalkers now, which makes 360 only games (lost odyssey is one of them.)
So what reason should I want the ps3 over the 360? I got my 360 with the full package, 4 games, a DVD remote, a DVD and an extra wireless controller
as a bundle pack for 700 dollars when it came out last year.
Like I said unless you have a 1080p, the games will be graphically very similar. If you do have it, there is always the HD-DVD drive you can buy for
360 which will just update the graphics again.
Online being a hassle and lagging? Even on the PS2 I've never had a problem with lagging when playing a game that was designed right. Take MGO for
example, it is a beautifully crafted online game, and there is no lag. Also, PS3 online is free, so you can't beat that. Xbox charges you $50 a year
for their online service, which is better than what the PS3 offers, but I'd rather not pay money to enjoy online.

Then your the only one. I was a big playstation person up to about a year into my playstation2 then I picked up an xbox cause I was sick of all the
but I like xbox live more then what I have seen from the PS3 online, and Im happy to pay the 50 dollars a month for a service that has always given me
excellent customer service whenever we had the slightest problem with the xbl service. Try the service with playstation online. Spent an ENTIRE night
trying to get playstations online to work, and still we couldn't get it to work.
I think the 50 dollars is WELL worth it, and have no problem paying 50 dollars a year for such a service. The whole set up of the xbl service is one
of the reasons I ended up switching. It was easy and very fun to use.
