Will The PS3/360 Combo Become The Best Ever?

I know we've done a lot in the past to help defend the PlayStation 3 against a deluge of negative press, but...well, if we don't, who will? We're not about to submit to obscenely biased views and all-out falsehoods masquerading as journalism, and we believe the consumer deserves much better from this industry's media. Therefore, we do our part to clarify the skewed point-of-views, but without blindly promoting the PlayStation brand. But how's about we play the "let's all just get along card" and look at what the combination of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 brings us this generation...?

Now, for my money, the SNES/Genesis combo still reigns supreme in game history. I suppose at one point I would've liked to say PC/PS1, but as I ended up spending the majority of my time with the PS1 (vastly preferred those RPGs), it has to come in second to the 16-bit glory days. I did think very highly of my PS2/Xbox combo last generation, but I had three times as many PS2 games as Xbox games, and I really only had Microsoft's console for a few must-have exclusives (Halo and Ninja Gaiden) and the fact that most multiplatform games were better played on the Xbox. This generation, I'm starting to think my PS3/360 tandem will give the SNES/Genesis - previously safe aloft a seemingly unattainable quality plateau - a run for its nostalgic money. Of course, this is looking fairly deep into the future but one has to admit, things are starting off quite well.

At this point, I have 20 PS3 games and 9 360 games but bear in mind that I have a few PS3 titles that publishers sent me for review that I might not have bought on my own, and I still want a couple more 360 titles (Fable II, Left 4 Dead, Ninja Gaiden II). Considering what we already have after only a little over 2 years for the PS3 and 3 years for the 360, I must say that this combo has yet to let me down. The very clear sign that you have an awesome pair of consoles? When you never have any downtime. In other words, I've always had something to play on either. From MGS4 to GTAIV to Gears to Resistance to Uncharted to Fallout 3 to Prince to DMC4 to Halo to Prologue to Katamari to Dead Space to LBP and more...we've got some great stuff, and with Killzone 2, GoWIII, FFXIII, Uncharted 2, Alan Wake and many more on the way, I have to think that the game list for the PS3/360 this generation is going to boggle the mind when all is said and done.

Honestly, I can't really remember a time when the software lineup looked so promising, and I think my library is already off to a running start. Sometimes, it can be difficult to maintain momentum, but I don't see any signs of slowing...do you?

I kind of missed the SNES/Genesis era, but I think you're right. Whatever the media suggests, this is an incredibly close race, and it is really driving both sides to step up their game.

I only have a PS3, but I appreciate all the innovation the 360 brings and forces the PS3 to match.

Wouldn't the far better option be a Ps3/PC combo? We have the extreme number of titles that are supposedly exclusive to the 360 that are released to the PC, we have the huge number of PC exclusives, and both require very little in the way of add-ons, and those it does need can be purchased cheaply.

And that, is that. There's some great games on the 360 but I'd rather save those bucks and dump them on PS3 games, PC components and other living things I need.

I'm not rich, in other words. When I purchase a game, I make very clear choices. This is why I'm here on PSX to see what's going on in PlayStation world, N4G to keep up with some news and Game Trailers to see all the latest gameplay footage, interviews, features and what not and I get couple of magazines and I look at the review rating and what people have to say about games.

Here is the list of games for what I own in this generation (with the except of some PS2 games):-

Not to sound mean or bitter, but you could lose when and I mean when not if, because it's only a matter of time when you will get some form of RROD. I got all my multiplat games for the PS3 and only got the exculsives that I wanted for my X360.

But even then with the limited amount of play I had 2 different X360 consoles error/die on me.

If anything it will be PS3/Wii because the wii has many more exlcusive titles plus I can play super smash brothers MELEE(not brawl) I think about getting a 360 every other day as I browse craigslist, but the bottom line is I do not trust it/ Or maybe PS3/PC because the pc has some stuff that'll never come out on consoles plus combines with ps3 media server it makes my ps3 the ultimate video machine. I have the PS3/PC/Wii combo and my gaming needs are more than satisified. Not too mention the DS/PSP/Iphone portable combo.

I think it will be the best combo ever. To be honest Ive been out of video games for a year or 2 before last year. I didnt really have the time for it, now all of a sudden I buy a PS3 and cant put the damn thing down :( haha It has recaptured me, not so much the xbox though, the ps3 has the ability alone to be the best system.

Really have to agree with you there... I too was never much into gaming a few a years ago... I lost the luster after the unfortunate demise of the Amiga computers...

Anyways, I do like my PS3 very much, it does everything it should do... and the recent up tick in the quality of the software as re-ignited the faith I have in AAA developers... people who actually care to do things properly and show technically what the target platform is truly capable of doing...

I have been sitting here for a few seconds asking my self what is the best console combo ever, and I came up with this: PSP(Left Jab), xbox360(Right Hook), PS3(Right Uppercut). With my PSP I can satisfy all of my 16bit gaming urges with the help of "Dark Alex", I can take care of my "once in a while", Gears, and Left for Dead cravings with my 360, and "knock-out" my everyday gaming needs with the ever-faithful PS3. I can't see things changing anytime soon, and you know what.... I wouldn't have it any other way. Long Live The King!!!!!!!!!!

Ben, I don't blame the X360. It's all microsoft's fault. That hurts every gamer that only can afford that system or that built a libary of games that it would be financial suicide to switch over.

Microsoft is so damn greedy over-all as a company and like to play monopoly. They rushed the X360 out with shoddy hardware, and even knew about it. Who does that hurt?. Them or you?. To this day with like 4 revisions to the motherboard it's STILL defective.

Did microsoft invest truely in HD gaming?. Look at this list.

1.No HDMI(any version) standard.

2.No HD-DVD storage for games. 35gigs>8gigs
(dead yes but could still be used as proprietary for large uncompressed games)

3.No 7.1 audio options for games.(only heard/seen 5.1 for games)

4.Use of disposable batt.(have we not learned from the rumble pak and wavebird?)

5.DVD trays.(come on thats so 90s)

6.Charge for online use.($7.99 a month to play a FREE demo or chat with a friend)

7.User un-friendly/cheap looking OS, both the blades and NXE, though I wonder will they still call it new 2 years from now? Something about the XMB that have 15sec thumbnail clips running in HD with 8 of them displayed all at once running looks really classy and High Tech.

Microsoft had the foresight to see that gaming industry booming, I'd give them that. But for them...It's the quick buck.

I am a disappointed X360 owner, with 2 un-readable disc errors under my belt and 2 months of unused xboxlive that I never got reimbursed.

My PS3 is with the rest of my high tech equipment and thats where it belongs.

"Microsoft had the foresight to see that gaming industry booming, I'd give them that."

You mean they had the foresight to see the gaming industry booming once it was already booming? Come on, it was getting big during the SNES days, and when the PlayStation launched gaming exploded into mainstream popularity.

Microsoft was late to recognize gaming as huge, just as they were late to recognize the internet as something everyone would want to use. So they rushed out Internet Explorer, and the rest is history.

Ben it's kinda difficult to play games or build a library with shoddy hardware, ask IGN.

LividFiction, guess you did not get my sarcasm. Microsoft seen the gaming industry booming, so they thought to themselves, hey we could make huge money and corner the market and not only that I'm sure we can monopolize the market as well. Fed law hardly gets involved to protect the industry from monopoly, look at EA's history.

Microsoft loves to monopolize, look at the PC few years back and even now threating IT. Just to push windows 7 cause vista was a failure for them.

Seems microsoft got worse ever since Bill Gates retired.

I think my collection is off to a pretty good start as well, since I own 39 PS3 (plus KZ2 pre-ordered), and I only kind of dislike two of them (THP8, THPG). Both were purchased for minimum money though, so they're not such a waste.

My collection looks pretty good right now, I have, PoP, COD WAW, GTA4, LBP, Fifa 09 (soccer), Fallout 3, Oblivion, Far Cry 2 and Motorstorm 2 and I plan to get Killzone 2.

This has been an awesome gen. of consoles, I have traded in a LOT of games in order to buy new ones, so that list isn't all the games I've owned. So far this gen. for ps3 my faves have been, all of the above minus possibly Fifa and PoP, Uncharted, Burnout Paradise, COD4, MGS4, UT3, Ratchet And Clank (way underrated) and The Otange Box (as much as I hate how crappy the PS3 version was it was still great). Skate and Battlefield Bad Company were also quite good.

I know this page probably wasn't meant to turn into a PS3 vs. Xbox 360 battle, but let's weigh up the two systems (major) exclusives since launch, and ones that are confirmed to appear in the coming months.

Xbox 360: Gears of War, Gears 2, Halo 3, Ninja Gaiden 2, Fable 2, Forza Motorsport 2, PGR 4, DOA 4, Dead Rising, Halo Wars, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Halo ODST, Left 4 Dead, Alan Wake

PS3: Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted, Uncharted 2, Resistance, Resistance 2, GT5 (prologue counted as the same), Killzone 2, Heavy Rain, Metal Gear Solid 4, Quantum Theory, Heavenly Sword, Motorstorm, Motorstorm 2, GoW 3, LBP, DC Universe Online, Haze (ok scratch Haze), The Agency, Infamous.

From those it's PS3: 19 VS. 360: 17
I haven't counted timed exclusives and feel free to add to any I've missed. There's probably a few.

i liked my ps1/saturn combo,does anyone remember Die hard arcade?,loved that game!!& the house of the dead,loved blowing off the zombies arms just before they'd try and hit you with an axe or blowing their torso off and watching their legs trry to kick you HA HA :)
Tekken 2&3,RE1-3 on PS1,myself & a few mates locked ourselves in a room and played those games untill the controlers fell apart in our hands.
PS2/XBOX,GTA3,VC,SA,Cold fear,farcry instincts,RE 4,RECVX,halo1&2,half life2,doom3 and lots of others(i could go on all day)
PS3/360 ive got a modded 360 with about 35 copied games but i couldn't be arsed pluging the component leads in to my LG LCD tv because it sounds like it is going to explode when i turn it on,sending red hot shrapnel into my face.

I'd say my favourite combo would be PS1/SATURN because the jump from 2D to 3D games blew my mind...oh yeah add Tomb raider1&2 to the list,beautiful games when they were released.

I've had the PS3/360 combo, Xbox 360/Wii combo and PS3/Wii combo at various times in 2007 and 2008 and if I ever do go back to having a combo, it will be a PS3/Wii combo. It all comes down to exclusives and none of the Xbox 360 exclusives interest me at this point. Some of the games I might have wanted on the 360 might eventually appear on the PS3 down the line when the timed exclusives run out. I still think the best combo was the Xbox/PS2/GC combo I had going for the second half of 2004. The only time I owned all three current generation consoles at the same time.

Couldn't agree more.

Both systems have filled pretty much any gap you could imagine this generation. It will only get better as both have expected this gen to far out last the one before it.

We have both neck and neck trying to give us the best gaming experience. Both with different ideas to perfection.

Id say its a win/win for all of us.

I find my pc/ps3 combo to be great. I might eventually get a 360 so i can play Fable 2 and Ninja Gaiden 2, but Halo 3 should be arriving on pc sometime soon (i predict around the launch of windows 7) and i wasnt impressed with Gears enough to want to play Gears 2 right away.
Certain games feel 'right' on a pc, like Mass Effect.

I was in deep with PC gaming when the PS1 was out so never had that console. Baldur's Gate 1 + 2 plus expensions? That was gaming! Planescape Torment? Daggerfall? All fantastic. But having a PS2 with bc with all those PS1 games? That was a win.

Unlike Ben, I didn't see a need to buy an xbox for Ninja Gaiden because that game is insanely hard. Not my style. Got Ninja Gaiden Sigma for PS3 and that was a mistake.

I would agree though that the PS3/360 gen is great. HD gaming is by far the most fun and exhilarating. Now, if only I had a 360.

Revolution is actually really good. It's like 4 but with much smaller maps and quicker game play. Very fun, but I like big maps with big empires and on the PS3 the game really starts chugging along to the point where it's frustrating. Not sure why that is...

To be honest i hate all the Fanboyism and all the console wars, if we really want next-gen i would like Microsoft and Sony to team up and make a really next gen console together and that way sales for both companies will be awesome and will eliminate all the exclusives, and together they will have huge sale numbers and massive savings because they wont need to dish out thousands in exclusive content. But knowing these two, that will never happen.

If Sony and Microsoft teamed up, a third player would rear it's head and compete. We live in a competitive market. You buy both or you buy the one you like best.

In the 8-bit and 16-bit era I enjoyed playing those consoles. I had them all but I wasn't big on playing them. I remember a school friend telling me when he got the Super Mario 3 game for snes on release. I wasn't interested in what he was telling me. Other friends would constantly play on Mario Kart, but I couldn't stand the game. I used skip school to play on Street Fighter 2 on a snes which had been setup in a Comet store. But got bored after a week of it.
I liked playing on them, just that I prefered outdoor activities and sports.

I had played the Saturn when it came out but never owned one. It was untill PS1 came and I had played Tomb Raider, it got me hooked for life. Still I didn't own a PS1 till 1997. And ever since, I have loved the PlayStation franchise and its game library. For me its gotten better, more games to play with less time to play em'

Everything was good when we were litle brats.

There is something to be said for being able to afford only one console, but if you have the means, buying both is certainly a good way to keep all your bases covered.

as for best combo ever, i'll have to disagree. PS1/N64 was THE combo, hands down. GC/PS2 gets an honorable mention.

"Everything was good when we were litle brats"

agreed. 100%.

Guess I've been pretty lucky (unlucky?) in that I was already working full time when the Sega MD came out, so I had the moola to dive right in. Before that it was Amiga/Atari [Bard's Tale on Amiga is a happy memory]

Throughout my gaming life I've never had two consoles together - I've always leap-frogged from one to another.

However, the only nintendo I owned was a Wii - I have a thing for Ten Pin, and needed to try it, but apart from family get-togethers, it lived in the closet.

So it went: Sega MD -> PC -> PS1 -> PS2 -> XBox -> 360 -> RROD x 2 -> Wii -> PC -> PS3 and if I may quote Qubex... 'I am Home'

I enjoyed the 360 experience and if MS could launch a system that has the integrity and class of the PS3 I would love to get into Fable2 (my sister-in-law was a boothbabe at the launch!) but until that day comes my PS3 will serve all my gaming needs (and BD needs, and media hub needs)

For now, though, the only combo I am happy with is PS3/PC.

Ok I have 20 PS3 games, 8 Xbox 360 gamnes and 8 Xbox games (I only have the 360 to play them on, never owned the original Xbox mind.)

I have had probably more games on the 360 but then traded them in and bought the PS3 versions ie Overlord as it has extra content on the PS3 as did Godfather but I traded this in as I needed game cash way back in November.

It is only recently that my games for PS3 has overtook my 360 as I tend to buy exclusives for the 360 as everything else is on the PS3 mainly because of free online play or PS3/360 exclusivity. I refuse to pay online for Microsoft. Before anyone starts saying your paying for the online service etc it is better this that and the other. I have never once had a problem playing a game on the PS3 Network so for something that is free and not has a problem on connecting etc I am gonna and always will buy the majority of games on my PS3.

The likes of Halo Wars will be on my 360, ok so I cant play online on the 360 as I choose not to pay for playing online with this game as it is free on another network/games console.

Before I bought my PS3 I was buying my games on the 360 which is probably where I have ended up getting my original Xbox games from. A Year or so later and I am turning to getting my 360 games as only 360 exclusives ie Gears Of War 2, Fable 2 and the likes of Halo Wars etc.

Does this make me a fanboy ? In one way it does as the free network etc. On the otherhand because a game is not available on my PS3 I will go out and get it for the 360. I didn't do this on the original Xbox as much as I wanted to play Halo and Halo 2 I felt getting the Xbox just didn't justify me getting that console. So I waited and before the PS3 came out for us in the UK it was held back till March I ended up buying my 360 ahead of the PS3. I wold have ended up getting the Gears Of War games anyway.

So I am happy I own both machines and I will decide which way to go further down the line ie do I go totally with Xbox720 or PS4 or do I do like I have done the last couple of years and end up getting both machines. It is kinda hard to say as I cannot see into the future can you ?

Ben I think those game would come to ps3 if 360 did not exist, so my point its better to simply have no 360 at all, I mean all it has to offer is voice chat. Ms should have never entered console wars, most of us would be better of right now, with developers only focusing on one consel each game would be great and they would have to compete with each other on a less technical points and more gameplay+story.And of course wii would be dead meat or silicon.

Not sure why Josh would get banned in this thread. Hes been clean but wtv its your call.

Anyway, somebody said MS should never got into the console war, thats stupid. It made them money RROD not withstanding, they have exclusives(nothing i really like save for Halo but still great ones) and they carved a foothold in the market and a loyal fanbase, not talking fanboys.
So when looking at the whole picture it worked out for them.
That said, competition betters the breed, this goes for both M$ and Sony, both systems will continue to play the timeless art of one-up-manship equalling better systems for all of us.

Ideally given Wii is inferior and a different kind of system truly, the 360/PS3 pair is the perfect combo.
I still think M$ should drop the Live fee to play but thats just me.

Ben, I love ya like a brother, but for you to create this thread and then expect us to only comment on the games is tantamount to beginning a thread on Geo. Bush's legacy, and then later chiming in that you only want us to talk about his successes.

Mind you, I wish Gears, Fable 2, Braid, and the like were available on the PS3. But there's always been just one little hitch: I'd have to buy a 360 to play them, and that means making a sizable investment in a company that knowingly created a defective console and foisted it on the world. Beyond that, read about the 130+ lawsuits Microsoft was slapped with (and lost) for a whole host of corporate misdeeds in its software division. The evidence against Microsoft is staggering and irrefutable.

I dunno, call me crazy, but throwing down good money for a console made by a shit-bird company and then holding my breath every time I turn it on just isn't my idea of a good time!

For those of you who already own one, I highly recommend you track the recent California-led class action lawsuit--you may be entitled to remuneration if Microsoft loses. That could buy a lot of new PS3 games, and in Josh's case, perhaps a shiny new PS3 itself. Think of the possibilities...

But lawsuits aren't always necessarily about what is right and just; sometimes people just want to make a buck off a rich company's expense. Not to say that it's this way this time, but it certainly is often.

And the failure rate is lower now than it was. Although I think both of my friends with Boxes had the ring at one point.

Sorry Ben, had to get that off my chest. Getting back on topic, I'd say I loved my PS2/GameCube combo best. Unlike many, I thought the GameCube was a solid little system, and some of its exclusives, such as Metroid Prime, SSB Melee, Tales of Symphonia, Eternal Darkness, Pikmin 2, and of course Zelda made for some good times--good times, indeed.

Sadly, I got rid of my GameCube... sniff... think I'll have to buy another!

I share the same feeling and view as Ben. I have both consoles and I basically buy big games on both consoles and I just enjoy great games on both consoles.

So far, I bought 9 PS3 games and 7 360 games. The list goes like this:

PS3:
MGS4, DMC4, Assassin's Creed, Soul Calibur4, Disgaea 3, Ninja Gaiden sigma, Star Wars Force Unleased, Price of Persia, TombRaider Underworld

360:
Lost Odyssey, Enchanted Arms, Blue Dragon, Infinite Undiscovery, Last Remnant, DOA4, Katamari

and I am very happy with the games on both consoles.

(sorry, FPS fans, you noticed my list does not have any FPS but have lots of RPGs, I realize the greatness of FPS but I am not FPS fan or any first person games, cuz it just makes me dizzy)

HAHAHAHA I will just stick w/ my PSP/PS3 combo.

off topic: Which processor do you guys think is stronger? The Xenon processor (in Xbox 360) or the Cell processor (in PS3)? I went to wikipedia the other day and read articles on both and it said that the Xenon is a modified version of the Cell. But the PS3 has 8 cores and the Xbox 360 has 3 cores. Which one is stronger?

The Xenon has 3 cores that are dual threaded, and the ps3's have 8 single threaded SPU's, one of which seems to be a spare, and another one for running the OS. Dual threaded doesn't mean 2x, but what it means is that it can pause one process, and run another. So as far as running basic floating point calculations, the Cell has a significant edge. However, the 360's graphics ATI card is more instruction rich, but 50Mhz slower, than the ps3's Nvidia card, allowing it to do AA natively, while the ps3 must rely on postprocessing. The 360's card also uses shared memory architecture (512MB from two 700Mhz 256MB GGDR3 RAMs), allowing it more RAM for textures, while the ps3s has a split RAM architecture, one 256MB XDR 3.2GHz RAM for video and one one 256MB 700 Mhz GGDR3 RAM for CPU, that are unsharable but much faster. Aside from that, 360's graphics card is said to produce brigher whites, while the ps3's is said to do darker blacks. What does this mean? The ps3 has the potential for more on-screen objects, and draw distance, and more sophisticated behavior or physics, while the 360 has the potential for more textures and brighter colors. However, at the end of the day, it's up to developers to tap in to the architectures' potentials. Developers have complained about the ps3's complicated architecture, and they have complained about the restrictions of the 360's DVD-9 size limitation and the significantly increased royalties paid to MS for having more than one disc per game.
