    Well for one thanks to the PS3s OS it actually has less processor power than the 360. As a result any small power advantage the PS3 may or may not have over the XBox 360 has been negated. And that's first hand info from IBM, the PS3s processor developer btw.

    But him saying that was a response to me saying that the PS3 may not be playable at E3 this year.

    So if anything it strengthens my point. Thankyou.

    Oh they can, but they're going to have to make the case even bigger.

    So ?
    The point isn't which console has the 'best' hardware.
    The thing to keep in mind that they're both so close in terms of actual power that you need (artificial) benchmarks to see a difference in percentages.

    However all that won't mean a thing to the average gamer who can't see the difference between an UE3-powered game running on either of those consoles.

    Also keep in mind that I think Gamespot did a comparison between the old and new Xbox ... and the differences were not as big as one was hoping for. For two next-gen consoles it's going to be even less obvious.

    The gap between the 'original' Xbox and the PS2 is sometimes pretty small, unless you know what to look for.

    Actually the difference between the PS2 and the XBOX is huge. Especially since the PS2 can't handle normal mapping passes.

    It's a good thing that the Xbox won that round...wait.

    Normal mapping does not a good game make. And that is coming from me, who is a graphics programmer, yet I still acknowledge that.

    The 'average' consumer is a retard who only buys three games a year. I've already bought 31 games this year. I wonder whos opinion is more valued.

    I never claimed graphics made a good game. So take you words out of my goddamm mouth or i'll cut you in ways that'll make you useless to a woman.

    Feel free to read this and stew...you basically were working overtime to get your point of that since the Xbox had superior hardware, it made superior games. And since you didn't like being served by me, you acted like a child, and this is what happens. Who believes your jabbering anyways?

    Easy tiger. You want to go the way of the Beebosaurus?

    Easy.
    The average consumer. Why? Because you bought 31 games. Clearly, they are already more than pleasing you, good sir. To improve, they need to tap into why the other guys merely bought 3. Therefor, their feedback will be more usefull. Therefor, their opinion is no less valued, and arguably MORE valued. :shy:

    :p

    Yes. anyway. Did you know everytime someone makes a ridiculous threat of bodily harm that god kills a kitten. Via masturbation. Did you?

    Think of the kittens. THINK OF THE GOD-DAMNED KITTENS.

    Aggh but they should be asking themselves why 27 of those games were Nintendo games and not theirs.


    It was a Sin City reference and it was made in jest.

    That really really depends on the game you're looking at.
    Especially multi-platform games tend to be pretty similar. I know for a fact that a game like SSX:Tricky actually looked and performed better on a PS2 (Xbox-version suffered from fps-drops).


    Oh ... and the average consumer has an opinion that counts, because there's more of them. Sure ... a single average consumer may only buy 10% of what a fanboy would buy, but otoh the amount of fanboys is a mere fraction of the total market. The average gamer is the reason games like deerhunter sell a lot of units.
