So, what's the verdict? Are you going to jump on the bandwagon for the XBOX 360 or the PS3 whenever they both come out?

I, personally would love to see stuff on the PS3, and probably will before the consumer market does (I work for Activision now as a game tester). I also noticed that The Emperor has located photos from E3 about the PS3 release.

I've never been a Microsoft fan, so I'm not too big on the XBOX at all. That, and most of the games I want to play are PlayStation only.

So, which do you prefer? If there is a preference.

Playstation 3 is going to dominate XBOX 360 without a doubt. XBox 360 is way too shitty be considered a sequel to XBox. PS3 has amazing graphics from what I have saw. The only competition Sony and Microsoft will have it, the rumor that Halo 3 will be out the same day PS3 will be out. I will by a PS3 for sure, but after I buy the Revolution (Nintendo is always my favorite )

I think they both have their ups and downs.

Microsoft from what I've seen, is going for more of a "Community" build up here, with Xbox Live. Xbox Live for the original Xbox was a very nice built in feature that easily allowed you to go online and play with your friends, add people to your buddy list, etc. But now with the 360 they're taking it even farther. And with games that will be able to have up to and over 50 players online (Perfect Dark Zero), I'm really excited about the 360.

But if we're talking pure power here, the PS3 does dominate the 360. If anyone here has seen IGN Insider videos from E3 (mainly the Press Conference), with the PS3 showing off it's power, you'll know just how much more powerful it is.

On top of that, Sony is going to be using Blu-Ray. Blu-Ray discs can hold up to around 50 GB of data, while as DVD HD's (which is what the 360 is using) they can only hold up to 15 GB.

Then, after that you have the "Cell". A new processing chip that is just insane, and has multiple processors and everything (I won't go into too much detail, because I can't remember the exact specs, just know it's insanely powerful).

But, all in all I'm excited about both. I'll probably end up getting the 360 since it's going to have Perfect Dark Zero, and it's coming out at the end of this year, but truthfully the PS3 seems more revolutionary.

I'm more than sure it will.

They had some company up at the Press Conference, and they mentioned Programming for the PS3 is like programming for a PC Game, easy and efficient.

Sure, it may be easy.

Xbox 360 is gonna have the coolest stuff out of the gate, but once the PS3 catches up i don't know which will win. Imma buy a 360 first tho, just because the games that are promised look really sweet.

Ok first off who the names the campaign Operation Midway. For you non historians. Midway was the turning point of WW2 in the Pacific, when the americans beat hte Japanesse. Xbox 360 American, PS3 Japanesse. Back to the topic. I will probably buy the Xbox 360 because I already got a Xbox and most of my friends do and all of us will probably will be buying the Xbox 360.

I'm not a fan of X-Box, I own a PS 2 draw conclusions from there.

PS 3 in my book, but I'll likely wait a bit, because PS 2 memories of how hard it was to get one will come flooding back.

I hope you know that was just a PS3 tech demo to show off what the PS3 is capable of. My friend told me though at the press conference somebody yelled out "sequel?!" and then sony guy just smiled. I highly doubt they'll make it though they've been saying that for years and then we find out it was just a rumor.

omg, i think the show on tech tv called "Attack of the Show" actually revealled the nividia powerhouse that is in the PS3. The PS3 version of the graphcis card currently outpreforms its computer counter part by a long shot. plus the thing is freakin huge, almost 6-7 inches long. There are a few complaints about the PS3, for one thing, the PS3 looks like a George Forman grill (one of the larger ones). My other complaint is the controller. I would be afraid to throw my controller down in frustration because it could come back and hit me. For all who havent seen the controller, its a boomerang stlye (why Sony? WHY?!?!?!).

On to the X-Box 360. It is coming out WAY earlier then the PS3 is. Although Halo 3 is being talked about, we have to suffer the games before it. From current specs on the system and specs on games, the games are not tapping even 20% of the full power. I know when a new system comes out, it takes a while for the graphics to go up, but come on. The X-Box is already pushing its self to the max, why cant the X-Box 360 have games at 50% power??? Thats just me. My other complaint is the name. It is kinda lame, but atleast it looks sweet to look at.

Nintendo Revolution... What can i say about it? Nothing really... I havent seen it nor do i know specs for it. All i can do is base how it is going to do based on the GC popularity. X-Box and PS2 blew GC out of the water, only a small population of gamers actually have one. Its not to say alot of people have one, but it is nothing compared to X-Box and PS2 owners. I just hope they dont screw up like they are screwing up with the GBM (Gameboy Micro, basically a thin and wide GBA... (Sorry, I would rather play the DS thankyou very much).

at any rate, all 3 will have their fans, but im sticking to PS3 and X-Box 360 until the Revolution reveals its true power and glory.

Well I'd have to say go PS3, cause I won't buy any of Microsoft's video game systems. I feel that Bill Gates is too evil and rich and I won't support him in another area. So I've refused to have anything to do with any X box stuff. So of course I'm gonna say the PS3.
