its just past 24 hours since the ps3 was realised here and i wondered what the people who have used them thought of them?

after playing virtual tennis, motorstorm and f1 i really liked the ps3. virtual tennis is very addictive and looks great at 1080i, motorstorm is fantastic and has very fluid and fast gameplay and the f1 game will be the game to own on the ps3, even though the demo is still WIP its fcuking awsome and the rain effect is pretty cool although it feels incomplete and lacking something this will be a must own when finished.

had a quick blast on gt;hd which was good fun but very bland and the handling made me miss forza.

overall good console that is more than capable taking on the 360, i still think gow is the best looking console game but the ps3 will be matching that very soon

I'm tempted to go to costco and buy one.

I'd have to by the 40" bravia to go with it though so the lack of a spare 2k is putting me off.

yep i think both consoles are faily equally matched. Both still have a fair way to go in terms of reaching there capacity for development.

Its just the price of the ps3 when your getting something so similar that is a joke for me anyway, as all i want it for is games, not interested in blu ray etc

no i dont own a ps3, never used one, but from what i have read, seen, and speaking to people that have used both, its clear the ps3 is no better in terms of gameplay than the 360, be that graphics wise, or gameplay wise

yes you get a few more features, such as blu ray etc, which if that interested you might justify the price tag, but for me, it doesnt

Right, well in that case don't make assumptions. You haven't used one, so you haven't really got much to back up your argument with have you?


Go to a store & have a play on one, you never know you might like it

People need to see where im coming from.

I kind of see the 360 as a stripped down ps3, yes the hardware is completely different but essentially as far as graphics and gaming go they are the same.

You could buy an xbox 360 with all the features of the PS3 and yes that would make it the same price, if I wanted all those features the decision between a 360 and a PS3 would be a tough one, and probably just come down to titles.

However I just want my console for playing games, so if i can get something that does that job equally as well for half the price, thats a no brainer really.

I have never said I like the ps3 better than the 360, this all started because people were just talking shit really about the ps3 and didn't like being corrected.

I'm buying none atm.

280 for X box
425 for PS3

2 x 280 = 560

Its more like 1.5 x more, 135 differance which if you want blueray & better graphics isn't a lot more to pay

no, just blu ray matt the graphics ARE NOT, i repeat NOT better on the PS3

the graphics are 100% better AT THE MOMENT on the 360, it has a better GPU, anywhere will tell you this, i do expect the graphics to come up to par with the 360 when developers get used to programming for the ps3

even mk4_astra, said that gears of war looks better than all he has seen on the PS3 however, that doesnt mean the ps3 is not capable of doing such graphics, for all i know it still may not be, but i do expect things to improve

that guy in the shop was an idiot and tried to sell you something.

its not fake hd, its hd, just not over HDMI, although the 360 is hdmi capable.

i could link you up to countless articles that explain that the ps3 is no better graphically and why, if you wish to see such things, let me know.

I myself shall be going to currys later to try one out for myself to form my own opinion
