360 vs ps3

Recommended Posts

i have a ps3. used to have a 360 but not anymore. these are the biggest flaws with ps3:

 

loading times feel really long. i don't really play often so if i want to play a console game i want something that starts up fast and 15 mins later i'm done. not to mention the updates. so many updates.

 

online is BAD. not nintendo bad, but i avoid playing with friends because of how painful it is. if you're used to Live and Bungie's online combination, PS3 is like trying to sew using your hands instead of a sewing machine. yes, it's possible to play online. but it's just not as fun or as efficient. that $60 people pay for live is completely worth it just because Live does it so well. not to mention that if you've ever used the group chat on live, you feel so spoiled after going back to PSN. that entire schtick about how Live has the worst community ever? It's completely bs. Online is online across the board whether it's PSN or PC. Also people on PSN are a lot less social than Live. Every now and then in a Halo game you'd have everyone wearing a headset. A game on PSN with half the players using a headset would be a rarity.

 

that's pretty much it. oh and i never used the bluray ever.

I think people on PSN would be more social if Sony included a free headset like Microsoft. Till this day I still don't understand why they haven't.

japanese vs north american customs with gaming. if you look at the most popular games in japan they're mostly single player (jrpgs, mario, etc). while the best sellers in america are sports games and CoD

 

if it wasn't for microsoft i don't think console online gaming would be the way it is right now.

And when they do have it, Japan's multiplayer seems to be more about local multiplayer, since you have a huge population in a small area. Meanwhile, the States/Canada/Europe's population is more spread out, so we're going to prefer online multiplayer.

 

Assuming that I'm not talking out of my ass, it does make sense that the Western company is the one that focuses on online multiplayer.

I've never thought about it like that, but that makes total sense.

One is ABAP. One may or may not be.

What is ABAP?

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

What everyone is saying about the social aspect (in regards to the headset for the PS3) is completely true. In my short time having a PS3 and MAG, which was about two months, I only had around ten matches that even just one person in my squad had a headset, and squads had around ten people in it IIRC. Granted, there were 128 people per team in the largest game mode, so maybe I was just never stuck with people that had mics.

Nah not just you. That was pretty much the same experience I had. People might think I'm ragging on the PS3 without playing it but I did prestige on MW2 and maxed out the engineer on BF3.

Cod,elder scrolls, sports.

You've got all of those in the 360. AND the PC is the superior platform for both cod and elder scrolls. No need to grab a ps3 if that's all you play.

As ballin' as possible.

Fixed.

 

I wouldn't say it is necessarily the superior platform for sports games, hence the specification.

Eh, when I can get an Xbox controller that plugs into my PC, it really doesn't matter either way.

You don't need an xbox controller, I have an aftermarket Saitek one that I can use both on my PS3 and my computers. And the only game that I've played that isn't compatible with that is Dirt 3... Which is weird, since Dirt 2 is supported.

I think he is and so do I think aswell. They are just 2 different things that cannot be compared. The topic of this thread is still 360 vs PS3, mind you.

No, they cannot be compared because of how superior PC is. :thumbup:

 

Anyway, yes it's a console thread go at it.

PC isn't superior. It's just different.

once you over look the:

graphics

massive FPS difference which is huge for shooters

one of the most important ones; modding in singleplayer and sometimes multiplayer games

being in control of your hardware and being able to upgrade, not waiting 10 years between each microsoft console

PC can handle far more, biggest example being bf3. You're telling me 64 man servers - 24 is not comparable in superiority, simply different? I don't think so

 

tl;dr

the PS3 has no games

Why is it that a friendly discussion about consoles always devolves into "PC is superior"?

 

Seriously, everyone was getting along before that. I don't think that's ever happened on the internet.

I know.. I was kind of happy this didn't turn into a war. Till now. Pc is not comparable to ps3/360. So it doesn't really need mentioning here.

I_am_Not, go back to your trollcave for writing such nonsense in here. The PS3 is not Japan's and Europe's most popular gaming console (besides PS2 and DS, ofc) for nothing. PS3 has a massive library of games, but you 'Muricans do not get all the good stuff. And even what you do get is sometimes insanely good. There is still no 360 equivalent to games like Metal Gear Solid 4, God of War III, Uncharted trilogy, MAG and numerous more. Oh, Valkyria Chronicles deserves a mention everywhere. Granted, online experience and some games are better on the 360, but that has already been said. They both have their own +'s and -'s and that is it. If you have the money for games and console and already have a 360, go ahead, try it out. There is a whole new world of games awaiting.

 

Oh, and has anyone mentioned PC/PS3 co-op? On some games, like Portal 2 it is possible. And Dust 514, which directly influences EVE Online.

That's not a tl;dr, that's an assumption. And a very ill-informed one at that.

 

Anyway, barring any "PC is superior" comments (which it is if you like modding, and shelling out cash to make an amazing rig), the game franchises you like define what console you should get.

 

Like Halo and Gears of War? Go for a 360.

 

Like Uncharted and Killzone? Go for a PS3.

 

For me, personally, I preffer the ps3, I won't deny that. I've been in love with the Resistance series because Insomniac isn't afraid of making things hopeless to the point that the main character has to be killed. Also, the ps3 has a higher limit on the number of players it can support in one match for many games (MAG, R2), although I'm not sure if that's a hardware thing or a developer's choice. The only weakness I've seen lately with the PS3 architecture is that it is a lot more rigid in RAM usage, which led to lag (thankfully fixed) in Skyrim. The fact that many multi-platform titles tend to be ported over to the PS3 also means that sometimes they don't pay as much attention to the final product (with Bethesda being the main culprit here).
