    dreamcast ftw... still have my '99 console lol. i should fire that thing up and get my soul calibur fix :)

    it's too bad sega went down the drain as a console developer, because there was something innovative with each one of their new systems.

    Well mordern consoles, You want to go with Xbox 360. Note: You may think PS3 is better because online is free, WRONG. think about it, Would you rather get something for free knowing it is not getting funded and they will take there time fixing it or would you like to know that your paying for something that will make a difference in your product. So yea go with the 360. For older ones, I'd say the PS2 and the N64. I used to play those alot.

    that's right, the only reason i prefer the PS3 over the X360 is because the online is free :rolleyes:

    Well don't compare it to that kitty, Where talking about game consoles. imo, Xbox 360 is just a better console and has better things to offer, It's worth paying.

    but you're wrong, it's not better... so you're personal preference is based on biased opinion. there's really nothing the 360 can do that the PS3 cannot; you can't judge a console by the games either, if that's what you really mean by saying "has better things to offer." if you ask me, the PS3 being the more reliable unit, is more of a candidate for that title if anything. just answer one thing... how is the PS3 not worth playing to anyone that enjoys video games?

    Why did they remove that option??? I thought of getting a PS3 because it works like a small PC...

    Bringing it back?

    They may bring it back if they lose or have lost that class-action lawsuit...

    they removed the option because people were using unix to run copied games off of the hard drive.

    Ex- First of all, It's all imo. Now I will state my reasons. 1. PS3 has a bunch of racist little kids calling people messed up things.
    2. Graphics are better. The colors,shadows,etc(Not a major part, But it does enhance a little.)
    3. Quality Games- PS3 has only a few games that are exclusive/good for there system, But overall do not compare to 360 only games like these. ( Gears of war,Halo,etc. Those are major games with a big fan base.
    4. PS focuses on a bunch of **** not related to video games. Ex: Internet,Bluray,etc. Xbox 360 focuses on the big thing here, Video Games.
    5. Has a higher popularity level. (More people on games etc.
    6. Cheaper and better quality

    And saying I am wrong is your opinion. Not a fact.

    Did not include some but I can not focus right now :(...

    Kitty- You seem to get way to serious about everything someone says, I think you need to relax. You do not need to go around making comments.

    So...you want me to respond or no?
    Some of these sound made up, no wonder I usually don't read these threads.

    EDIT:
    Yeah i'll respond a little:
    Are you joking?

    No need to take everything I say so seriously!

    i don't even know where to start...

    I'm not saying you're wrong because it's my opinion--I'm saying you're wrong because you are; you obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Again, you cannot judge a console by the games. You don't even own a PS3 so you can't even compare to anything. I could go on all day about how Gears 2 and Halo on the 360 are sh** but now that passes as my opinion. However, you can't argue that anything with Halo or Gears of War on it will sell millions of copies...

    You're #4 statement irritates me the most I think, because I'm not sure what rock you're living under but today's video games rely heavily on the Internet and Blu-Ray is the type of media all PS3 games are recorded to, instead of regular DVD-Rs (DL) which can only hold 8.5GB. You might not care but Blu-Ray disks can hold a lot of game (~25GB) therefore developers have a lot more real estate. They also hold their value a lot longer.

    While I will agree with your #5 statement #6 is garbage. There is absolutely no way in hell that the 360 is a better quality console, from a technical standpoint. Over 60% of consoles have failed compared to 20% with the PS3. This is a fact, so don't dispute it. I have both consoles, and I like them both, but the PS3 is far superior for many reasons. I'm not talking about games, the people who use them, or the features they provide... I'm talking from a technical standpoint and backing up the fact that the PS3's hardware is far more reliable.

    Overall, I really think that you're just pulling stuff out your a** like a typical 360 fanboy and not even making educated claims on the PS3.

    Don't let them get to you EXC! :dead:

    Dark, while you may be stating opinion your still attempting to make a fallacious argument that somehow greater popularity means better which is incorrect. EXC is right factually that PS3 hardware wise is superior to the 360. That's not hating on the 360, that's just the way it is. The 360's later versions have considerably lower failure rates and the newest "slim" design hopefully will be in line with other consumer electronics in regards to failing.

    Your other points seem off to me as well, both 360 and PS3 online wise have annoying little kids playing. Shoot even PC games have it but thankfully we can ban them much easier then on a console. Graphically I'm not sure what comparison your attempting to make, I will say though that multiplatform games do tend to look better on the 360 usually because of development and exclusive titles aren't really comparable.

    Now regarding games, that is completely subjective and depends on what the individual likes. The PS3 however does have more exclusive games then the 360 of high critical acclaim just fyi.

    The PS3 also focuses its marketing on multi-media system because it can! They won the format war and as a hardware company it would be dumb not too capitalize on it. And honestly for some people that matters especially with how much a console costs these days. I will agree with your early point though that Xbox Live is superior to PS3, not because you pay but rather because Microsoft is a software company and they are pretty good at it.

    Just my 2 cents

    The thing that pisses me off is how you keep insisting that everything you are saying is right. How can you tell me something is right, I mean for Christ sake I try to state my opinion and you disagree on more than half or what I write saying your right. If you right about everything back it up, SS's videos. No I am not a 360 fanboy, I barley play that crap anymore so don't start thinking **** thats not true. You get really in depth in what you are saying and block out everything other people have to say. I mean for Ex: I write IMO! You start telling me that most of what I say is wrong. Proof it really... I am not trying to start a flame fest but when people acting like what I said above irrateates the hell outta me. And I just recently sold back my PS3.

    -Relic, And why would you write 'Don't let them get to you EXC!'. If you are taking this very seriously, Theres some issues that need to be discussed.

    But...but...but its true!
    Did you know that the PS3 has eight cores?
    Did you know that xbox's have had this long-standing overheating problem with the red ring of death?

    This is absolutely your opinion!
    If you've looked at the graphics processors inside the PS3 and xbox, its quite obvious.
    Your own opinion/the opinion of the masses!

    Video's are, subjective?

    Title

    Same goes for me. This is not what TechSpot is about. They're all good consoles- and if their creators worked together, they could push all other competiton out of buisness.
