It runs at 60 fps on the 360 and 30 fps on the PS3.
I will say that the PS3 is a fine piece of machinery and when I get the chance I will be picking one up to compliment my 360.
So basically...while you are waiting for Sony to figure out what the hell they are going to do until MGS4 and a new Final Fantasy comes out 360 owners are playing games like Gears of War, Halo 3 and the like. :)
So this is regarding the 360 version being superior to teh PS3 version?
Ok, I'll agree with that. Because the way OrangePuck stated it, it seemed like it was just a general console war.
But I'll say that I've played the 360 version in HD vs. my PS3 version in SD and the framerate looks identical whereas in Madden and NCAA i see a huge difference.
Where were you this past month? Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune just came out and are being praised by game websites all over. Thats only a mere preview of the games to come on the PS3. Same thing with the 360 when it first came out. All it had going for it was Call of Duty 3 and even that got boring after you beat it.
Also, I've been hearing about 360 users complaining about their copies of NHL 08 freezing all the time. My game has not frozen once.
Xbox 360 limits it's DVD playback to 420p and I don't plan on buying the add-on HDDVD after all.
Plus Heavenly Sword and God of War 3 look awesome!
I need the ability to play all next-gen games. ALL OF THEM!!!!
I hear you about the Xbox 360 having this advantage because it's been out a year earlier but that is what a console war is all about. If you sucessfully launch before the other guy the developers will back you because that is how they make their money. When PS3 finally joined the next gen party another year is wasted while programmers learn that system. Meanwhile the 360 is out 2 years and it's full steam ahead. Another advantage that the 360 will have is that Microsoft can lower the price of the console making it even more attractive. More people will opt for the 360 because it's supported by so many games.
In the past there have been several scenarios where a system with weak specs has kicked the crap out of a system with superior hardware. You don't have to look far back either to see an example. The PS2 owned the original Xbox by a landslide. What you see happening now is Microsoft using is $$$ to put Sony behind the console wars 8 ball.
It's a war that Microsoft should win. I'm not going to look it up but I would imagine that Xbox is Microsoft's only losing division. Sony on the other hand has several divisions hemorraging cash so they simply can't compete with Bill Gates and his insistance that Xbox be given all the money it needs to rule any and all console wars.
Also, it was mentioned earlier that Xbox live is better than PS3 online. That is without question. XBL was launched in 2002 and is currently in their 5th year. This is an area where Microsoft should ALWAYS dominate Sony in because, well lets face it, online is what Microsoft does. A software company will always own a company like Sony because it's their expertise. Sony beating Microsoft in this area woudl be like a high school basketball team beating an NHL hockey team. Just ain't gonna happen. Microsoft will always be one step ahead.
