PlayStation 3 vs Xbox 360 Comparison Chart

Obviously, as you can see, the PS3 is better than the Xbox in every respect. Power, processing, graphics, you name it. Even the average units sold per day is more than the Xbox. Considering the games released, all the Xbox games are war based – Gears of War, Halo 3, Bioshock. But the PS3 games have variety such as Afrika. Looking at the fact that the Xbox is 16 months older than the PS3, the titles should be even more exciting.

Even in the power supply, the Xbox has a huge and bulky brick, and the PS3 has an internal one, and only needs a cable.

The storage capacity is nearly 10-15 GB more than the Xbox, so that more detail can be added to it.

As noticed in the chart, you have to pay for everything in the Xbox – External HD-DVD Player, HDMI Cable, Internet Access, Wi-Fi adapter, etc. But in the PS3, you get everything for free. You only gotta pay a mere $44 for a Dualshock 3 Wireless Controller, to have vibration as well as Six-axis motion sensing, which the Xbox misses. That is one way in which the Xbox 360 triumphs over the PS3 – vibration. Sony claimed that it would interfere with the vibration.

The Xbox 360 has so many technical problems, that it is often referred to as a time bomb by many. It explodes due to overheating. But a core worth 3.2 GHz is left unused in the PS3 for just that – bearing overload and preventing a blast. The PS3 is also sturdy. I’ve heard about friends moving their PlayStation 3s from one place to another by air, and it worked perfectly. I’ve experienced the same with my PS2.

If I were you, I would buy a PS3. I wouldn’t mind spending extra money for some awesome features and superb glossy black look.

    At the end of the day, the specs mean nothing if they’re not all getting used up yet, nothing will ever beat the PC imo.

    @XBox: Of course! Consoles can never be upgraded. Only firmware upgrades can be done. PC gaming will rule forever, undoubtedly, as one can have innumerable upgrades. But PCs can never dream of achieving the thrill of console gaming. While consoles consider themselves superior with 512 MB GDDR3 RAM. the PC scoffs at ’em with 1 GB GDDR3 RAM!
