It's a pretty bad comparison when your trying to compare systems. I don't mean to be biased but......... FPS games: PS3 has (exclusively) Killzone, and every multi-port imaginable. X360 has Gears of War, Halo, Bioshock (for now) Advantage: Microsoft RPGs: PS3 has FFXIII, and possibly KH3, but that's in question. Both are iffy at the moment. Xbox 360 has Mass Effect, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, and Trusty Bell/Eternal Sonata, Fable series. Advantage: Depends on if the SE games actually are PS3-exclusives. If so it's equal. If not, the advantage is clearly to MS. Racers: PS3 has Gran Turismo (among others) X360 has Forza and PGR series Advantage: Microsoft. GT is great, but Forza, although lesser known, is leaps ahead of GT in every way. Multi-Ports: PS3 has the vast majority X360 has a slightly larger majority. Advantage: X360 for now. The 360 is typically the lead platform for next-gen to dev for for the more rudamentry games (EA, Activision, ect). The more advanced ones (DMC4) are probably going to be equal. However, at some point 4-5 years from now, the PS3 could be better. The 360 not only has an equal library to the PS3 for the first year of release (it seems to still bode in the 360s favor vs. PS3s for how great the 2006 lineup was). But more importantly; the 2008 season of games is going to be very pro Wii and most likely neutral or anti PS3. Also, about RPGs on MS systems: Of the top 10 Xbox games, 3 were RPGs that sold over 1m copies. Morrowind (1.8m), KOTOR 1 and 2 (1.95 and 1.3), and Fable (2.6m). It's a fallacy that Xbox owners dislike RPGs. It's just merely that MS overlooked 1st party RPGs until they bought Lionhead and banrolled Mistwaker. Heck, look at Blue Dragon. It's tier ratios are just as good as DOA3 was for the first box. In other news for the 360; Enchant Arm ended up @ 150k units in the US (compared to PS3s 30k or so). Oblivion obviously sold about 10x better on the 360 (but that's expected). Xbox 360 fans buy alot of shooters, yes, but they buy in equal numbers, any good game that makes itself worthy (for the 360, look at GH2, Oblivion, Dead Rising, Crackdown and Saints Row. All are, or will be million sellers). There are tons of 1m+ sellers this year that aren't going to be shooters such as Madden 08, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Forza 2, Trusty Bell (maybe), GTAIV, and probably a few others. Overall, as a 360 owner, I am far more impressed with the software I buy, and can buy, versus anything the PS3 could offer me. To me, the PS3 is far too expensive for what it's going to provide to a gamer. Very few exclusives, and the exclusives it does have (aside from FFXIII, which I doubt will be exclusive), are all Sony-made, and just....aren't to my tastes compared to the far superior offerings that MS is making like Fable, Mistwaker titles, Forza, ect. MS is putting out far higher quality games right now vs. Sony.

Thanks for your opinions stated as fact on how much better the xbox360 games are compared to the ps3's,can i have some of what you're smoking???

To settle any future arguments: FF XIII has not been announced for the 360. MGS4 has not been announced for the 360. Stop basing your arguments on being "pretty sure it's going to the 360."



LEFT4DEAD411.COM
Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

You're supposed to state your opinion as a fact in any sort of good writing and anybody who has taken English 101 in college would know that.  Try reading a newspaper or magazine and tell me one article where the writer does not state his opinion as if it were a fact.  Take a look at this review of Shrek the Third by Roger Ebert:
Notice he says "Shrek the Third is a damped-down return to the Kingdom of Far Far Away, lacking the comic energy of the first brilliant film and not measuring up to the second."  Notice how he doesn't say "IMO" at the beginning of this sentence, if he did he'd lose his credibility and his job pretty soon.

It's not an opinion, it's written in textbooks which are used as guidelines for the way people write.  However, you can continue to stick to your high-school mentality and write at a kid's level if you want.

O my god i can't believe you are taking this seriously, i was taking the p*ss out of a delusional post that stated as fact the xbox360 is better than the ps3 in nearly every single way and genre when it is not.



U guys just naming a few exclusives which go multi. Here are some exclusives for the PS3 FF XIII & versus, God of war III, Killzone, Rachet and Clank, Uncharted, MGS4, Resistance sequel, Heavenly Sword, Coded arms, GT 5 etc.

These games are enough for Sony to atleast keep the 2nd  Place all of these games except for uncharted and coded arms were not played by any one yet, are excellent. The first party titles of sony would also be enough, if u disagree check out the first party titles of M$ Halo and Gears of War and Forza. Gears of war would have competiotion with Resistance the game was excellent and it was only a launch title. Killzone is getting better and better proof Killzone Liberation which got 9/10 in IGN.



blowfish, and I was merely pointing out that for every PS3 fanboy that thinks that in every way, the PS3 is better. I was pointing out that as far as I've seen, both critically and sales wise, the 360 exclusives far outweigh the PS3 exclusives. However, if you've grown up around a Playstation all your life, your going to think that the PS3 games are going to be better due to the fact that your probably more familiar with their series games. Like the gentleman that stated that GT was far better than forza. A side-by-side comparison would reveal that some things about GT were better (like far more cars), but in Forza, other things were better (better physics, actual car damage, and other simulation aspects). It comes down to opinions, primarily, but even then, one can only state one system's exclusives to another's. We'll always have differences. I am just merely pointing out my differences, and how I believe I'll be a happier gamer as I spent far less money for far more games for my system that I'll like. But I could be wrong as well.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

What u are comparing is GT 4 with Forza 2 atcually to make it more fair you would have to compare GT 5 with Forza and plz remember that GT HD was only a demo and a pimped version of GT 4 not the actual demo of GT 5.

Critically wise and sales wise Final fantsy X for PS2 would outsell both Halo 2 and Gears of war.

 If thats your opinion then fine but to most people it's the other way round.
