taken from another site, recent test done on a ps3 and 360. rather than solely going by what microsoft and sony told them they also gathered the stats themselves and got together with various game developers to give them the true picture, these are the findings:

GPU Transistor Count
PS3 - RSX transistor count: 300.2 million transistors
Xbox 360 - Xenos transistor count: 337 million (232 million parent die+105 million EDRAM daughter die)

GPU clock
Xbox 360 - Xenos clocked at 500 Mhz
PS3 - RSX clocked at 500 MHz

GPU video memory
Xbox 360 - Xenos: 512 MB of 700 Mhz GDDR3 VRAM on a 128-bit bus
Xbox 360 - Xenos: 10 MB daughter Embedded DRAM as framebuffer (32GB/s bus, multiplied by 8 thanks to multisampling unpacking for an effective bandwidth of 256 MB/s, the internal eDRAM bandwidth)
PS3 - RSX: 256 MB GDDR3 VRAM clocked at 700 Mhz on a 128-bit bus
PS3 - RSX: 256 MB of Rambus XDR DRAM via Cell (with latency penalty)

thats fanboys to a new level, I've skim read the post and it seems the xbox360 has a better spec which is fair play imho but its all about gameplay and titles, will be good to see how they both look 3 months after the full launch.

but still, cant ignore the fact that the xbox woops the ps3 on spec.

the xbox 360 would have eaten itself and melted long before extracting its full potential.

I was reading somewhere (cant remember now) about the distribution of the consoles, apparently Europe is alot harder then the states and japan when it comes to dishing out their product. They decided it was better to delay one region of the world instead of the whole world.

Lets not forget that the xbox had some funny old issues when it first came out too, these next gen consoles will have teething issues.

Yes i agree, it seems sony always puts us last. At least MS got the xbox 360 out in shops all over the world within days of each other.

PS3 - Ridge Racer 7

Nintendo/Gamecube/Wii whatever has always been the king for having mates over, I'm sure someone who is well into their games Mikey, you remember 4-player on Goldeneye, Mario Kart, and the rest, Gamecube has monkey ball, mario kart, and some other crap and the Wii has all sorts of next gen interactive games which look very fun.

360 is obviously going head to head with the PS3 when it goes worldwide, lets be honest, how can you compare the Wii to the 360 when the games are "kiddy" like and it STILL CANT FUCKIGN PLAY DVDS!! (hello nintendo??)

I still cant get round the 360 controller but thats because I'm a retard, when it comes to FPS (lets say rainbow six vegas) the controls are so retarded compared to a keyboard and mouse.

agreed before crimbo we had 8 peeps over and we had bowling on before having a tournament on pro evo 6 on 360, at the end of the nite a few peeps had a go of the ps3 and then it was quickly switched off for another game wii bowling

I am not disputing that the 360 and ps3 are amazing pieces of hardware they are but the wii, appeals to soo many people on diffrent levels, even my dad is playing on wii bowling, Sales of hardware drives publishers and developers, to make games, and when the wii is sitting on top of the hardware charts the Realistic gritty games will come, so i won't be supprised to see GTA 6 on the next generation come out on a Nintendo console
