“Xbox 720” Already in Development

In what probably shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, Microsoft has confirmed that yes, the Xbox 360’s successor is already being worked on. According to Microsoft EMEA (European, Middle East, and Africa) vice president Chris Lewis:

“The consumer won’t let you [rest on your laurels], the developers certainly won’t let us. So that’s happening right now. You’ll see more [on a new Xbox] over time…certainly we’re not talking about the next version yet. So give us a chance to catch a breath, will you?”

Guys, please take your time; we haven’t yet finished this round of “console X is better than console Y,” and I think I need at least three years before I’m prepared to go through the “next-generation console holy wars” again.

  1. I have a few questions. How much will it be? What will it look it? What features will it have? What can it do? When will it be released? What advancements have been made? What makes the Xbox 720 unique?

  2. Are people never satisfied? What is wrong with the PS3 and the Xbox 360? Is technology not good enough right now for a while? Come on! The world should be quiet for like two seconds and let Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo take a break…all three companies are competing for the number one console, but in our eyes, its still not out there! I am perfectly satisfied playing Call of Duty 3 on my Xbox 360…why in the world do I need an Xbox 720?…give me a break…save up $431.92, and buy a premium Xbox 360 console, and shut the hell up everyone…

    sorry for that little outburst at the end…

  3. I agree with Vretsu, Ha ha Only only reason this is happening they Feel threatin By Sony’s PS3.

  4. Listen as far as i’m concerned why do we even need to pick sides. just get one and be happy with it. get a life and stop arguing about which console is better! Damn!

  5. nah 360 rains supreme because the graphics are the same or around the same and 360 has better game titles

  6. I guess all i really want to do is push Playstations face in the sand. Sony has the hardware to be boss, but it will take at least 2 years before they make true PS3 games,and a year before developers learn how understand what the PS3 can do . That said, playstation wont be making another console for a long long time. Think about how much money they lost just trying to beat the 360. Microsoft didnt put that much money into the 360 they actually made a profit. So yes, the 720 is going to rain over all console and i cant wait to see what it will be. Xbox live changed how i game forever. i might buy a PS3 in 2 years when the cost comes down and some real games come out, but Xbox would have released the 720 buy then and guess what! Sorry Poppie Station tre im sticking with gates. we should all smash the 25 Playstations that they made hahahaha and save them the cost of return shipping ..

  7. i dont really see a big graphics difference between the 2 consoles,they are pretty evenly matched.i personaly would go for the 360 because it has about the same amount of power as the ps3 and its cheaper.i dought i dont think that microsoft will even be thinking about the 720 for at leest 4 years

  8. agreeing with geometry, the ps3 will end up being a better system but, with the 360 having much better games and xbox live i will be sticking with microsoft. With the 720 in the early stages of production it will $h!t on the ps3 because microsoft knows what it is up against and will produce a system that none of us would of even thought of a year ago.

    Never thought before = Wii!

  10. To some of you: it’s REIGN, not RAIN.

    Not until recently have I realized that I don’t really hate the PS3. In fact, if I was ever offered one (for a reasonable price, of course), I wouldn’t mind buying it. I just hate Sony heads like Ken Kutaragi who persistently brag about the system’s capabilities. When you look at all of the tech specs, the PS3 is obviously the more technologically sophisticatd system. But when it comes down to the bare essentials, how much of that processing power is actually attainable by game developers? Not much. Idealistically, the PS3 is superior to the 360, but REALISTICALLY, the systems are equal. If Kutaragi realized that, then I probably wouldn’t hate Sony as much. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Thus, because Sony is so arrogant, they think that the PS3’s success is garanteed. But this arrogance blinds them from the truth that it takes more than promises of amazing graphics and just good graphics to attract costomers. You need to IMMERSE the player into the game. You have to make them believe that they are a part of the game world. Graphics are only half of the formula. And the process of immersion is a continual effort. Sony’s arrogance deters them from realizing that. As a result, if a customer bothers to pay $600 for a single system, then obviously, he or she expects that that company realizes everything I have discussed and will fufill their promises. But you can’t expect that from Sony. Thus, for $600, I don’t expect to be getting much in return. On the other hand, Microsoft seems to understand this. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have created the hassle-free XBOX Live network.

    I’m siding with the XBOX 360 because I’d rather pay $400 dollars for system made by a company that understands game immersion entirely than pay $600 for a system of equal value made by a company that understands game immersion only half way.

    It’s not the PS3, it’s the people who made it that suck. In my eyes, the PS3 COULD HAVE been great. But Sony just f-ed it all up.

  11. I’m, by far, an XboX fan, but come on people, the PS3 out performs the 360 on most levels. We would all be PS3 fans if it had the games to support it, but really, Final Fantasy is what is keeping the PS3 alive, imo. BlueRay OVER doubles the quality of the DVD feature on Xbox and your “at-home” DVD player. Also, the TPS (triangles per second) and the processor is faster/greater and cooler (temp wise) than the 360.

    When you look at actual numbers, the PS3 outperforms the 360, but there comes a point when the gamer doesn’t really notice the difference between 3.0 million TPS and 4.5 million TPS and really the only difference we will see is the load time, which doens’t really matter that much.

    Sno

  12. ok gary.. you just need to shut up and find something better to do with you life besides worrying about it.. just because you dont think the 720 wont be cool dont mean everyone else does

  13. All of you who argue over which system is better are f***ing stupid. Yes, I do have a 360, no I won’t buy a PS3. Why? Because for one, the 360 is cheaper. Second, the only reason Sony says the PS3 is so great is because a blue ray DVD player costs like $1200!!!! The graphics are the same, comparison results showed the 360 was better graphically than PS3, but only because Sony doesn’t have the same software technology as Microsoft, and never will. End of Story.

  14. Snowboarder really likes to make stuff up, and totally disregard videogame media. Oh and the guy that does’nt like the power brick, put it behind your tv and voila you dont have to look at it. Look at it this way. Xbox live costs money. $50 bucks a year with a renewing subscription. When you pay for something, that money goes back into the technology thus, improving it everyday. The lighting engine on the 360 kicks the shit out of the playstation 3 and that my pre pubescent little friends means the world in graphics. Maybe you should look at naked pictures of your 90 year old grandmother. Perhaps then you would lose your naieve and blind boner for sony. Got news, I have all 3 now, and my 360 sees way more play than the other 2. Get a job and deciede for your self.

  15. Here’s something of interest that some of you might like to read.. This is actually from a developer of all formats and pc games.And these are his own words..

    Being a video game developer (I develop for both, Playstation 3 and XBOX 360) people ask me almost daily which platform I think is better. These are my personal feelings, in no way does this reflect my employer.

    Short answer: XBOX 360.

    Long answer: Price, performance, visual quality, game selection and online support. I think the XBOX 360 wins in every category.

    Price: This is obvious; the XBOX 360 core is only $299. The PS3 is around $499 for the 20GB version. It comes with a hard drive, but you don’t need a hard drive to enjoy a lot of great games on the 360 so I think it’s fair to compare both core systems.

    Performance: On paper, the PS3 is more powerful. In reality, it’s quite inferior to the 360. Without getting into too many details, the three general-purpose CPU’s the xbox360 has are currently FAR easier to take advantage of than the SPU’s on the PS3. I suspect a few years down the road some high budget, first party PS3 exclusive titles will come out that really take advantage of the SPU’s and do things the XBOX 360 can’t, but I don’t think the console is worth buying based on this speculation (for some it will be though, we’ll have to wait and see how these games turn out).

    Graphics: The XBOX 360 is a clear winner. The GPU is more powerful. It has more powerful fillrate, and far more pixel and vertex processing horsepower. Part of the reason is their choice of memory, and architecture of pixel and vertex procesing. I can’t get into details but the same vertex shader will run much slower on the PS3 than the XBOX 360. The 360 also has a clever new way rendering high definition anti aliased back buffers. To accomplish the same effect on PS3 is prohibitively expensive. For this reason I think many games will have no choice but to run in non-HD resolutions on the PS3 version, use a lower quality anti aliasing technique, or do back buffer upscaling. The end result in all cases is going to be noticeably worse image quality.

    Game Selection: The XBOX 360 has a huge head start here. 1 year is an eternity in gaming. Almost all multi-platform developers have made the XBOX 360 their primary platform due to timing of release-to-market, this means the games will look and perform better on the 360. The PS3 versions will be ports of the 360 versions. (The opposite was true for XBOX 1 vs. PS2). The XBOX 360 is also far faster to develop for due to better development tools (massively popular Visual Studio .NET vs. proprietary, buggy PS3 compiler and debugger), better documentation, and easier architecture (3 general purpose CPU’s vs. 8 specialized processors that require DMA). Timing has also caused all next-gen middleware developers to make XBOX 360 their primary platform, and they will ‘add ps3 support’ as needed. This support will probably be inferior to the XBOX 360’s due to manpower and more importantly, demand. It’s this catch-22 now that will continue to drive the 360 forward and hold PS3 back.

    The other obvious point here is that right now the Xbox360 already has a very impressive line-up of titles on store shelves; the ps3 just launched, and has virtually nothing of interest. Also, many 360 games are already discounted ($35 for Fight Night 3 on Amazon). PS3 games are all full price since it just launched.
    Live: Microsoft’s online support with XBOX1 was phenomenal. They built in-house experience, user base, facilities, $$ commitment from executive level (since it proved successful), and most importantly, feedback from 100,000s of XBOX Live subscribers. Playstation 2’s online support sucked. They are now playing catch-up, trying to emulate Xbox’s model. But they had their hands tied just trying to make the PS3 work, it was incredibly ambitious (blu-ray etc.). I haven’t seen it yet, but I seriously doubt the quality will be anywhere to the level of XBOX 360.
    HD Content: The PS3 comes with one built in (blu-ray). The XBOX 360 offers HD-DVD as an add-on for $200. You probably don’t care about HD-DVD right now. But you will soon (The quality between DVD and HD is comparable to VHS vs DVD, if you have the right TV) so I suggest paying attention to the war that’s begun. There are two formats: HD-DVD and BLU-RAY. Basically if you rent a BLU-RAY DVD from Bockbuster, it won’t play in your XBOX 360 HD-DVD, and vice versa with the PS3. The implications of this format war would require another article on its own. But as far as the consoles are concerned, the XBOX 360 wins because the DVD player is a separate unit. Playing movies is very taxing on the DVD reader, and let’s face it. In 3 years when your PS3 DVD drive goes out due to playing lots of movies (PS2 was notoriously bad about this) you will have to go buy another PS3. With the 360, you’ll just chuck your HD-DVD player, and go buy another one at the store. In 3 years standalone units wlil probably only cost about $99-150. Another point for the XBOX 360, is that I don’t know who will win the format-war, so I would rather wait with purchase of a HD player. The PS3 doesn’t give you this option.

    PS3 controversy: Shootings, Wallmart fights, $15,000 Ebay sales etc. My advice is ignore it. It will pass soon.

  16. Well with what I just left for everyone to read, I would like to say that I myself am a hardcore pc’er..And my gaming is actually on a 11’X 7′ screen projected at a native 1280X720..Or actually 1280X768 or 750P.The reason that I bought a 360 is because of the fact that when you have two giants like sony and microsoft bringing their billion dollar investments to the battlefront against each other for reign over our dollars, PC games fall very short for about a year. Or when released, are released much later to help support the console benefits..Now, with DX10 around the corner, and waiting on games worth my while for the pc.. I bought a xbox 360, AFTER the ps3 came out..And something I noticed that suprised me was, the lack of the ps3 itself actually drove people to buy more 360’s.. Christmas coming and a lack of puts you going to the other corner of the ring.. I actually bought the last 360 that was at the store and the last copy of gears of war, only because an employee of mine worked at the store as part time around Thanksgiving.. HMMM, Makes you wonder if sony had thought that one out very much?
    As far as Japan games,I will have to classify that in a big category of “WHO CARES??” Half the games from there don’t fit most us agenda, and vice versa..It has been like that since probably before the first ps1.. I will have to say that gears of war runs absolutely flawless and as far as gaming goes, EPIC’s team did an awesome job of something refreshingly new and extremely addictive..I have over 700 dvd’s and really use my pc and upscaling to enjoy them over the 360..Much more video control with a pc and powerdvd 7 does a great job.The ps3 upscaled still can not give all the control that comes with pc driver’s and a decent video card..So, the dvd playback is fine, but NOT the reason I would buy either sysem.. That’s for sure…Ironically the biggest eye candy that I have seen yet on either pc format or any other would be Call of Duty 3..I am a true gears man, but it has nothing on the raw beauty of COD3, and the amount of action actually makes you feel like a small prt in a very big and busy war… Gears on the other hand makes it more personal…Ironically, COD3 has the best water simulation that I have ever seen in a game.. Great work for a developer that DIDN’T make the first two installments of the game..
    So with all said, the 360 has past my expectations in many ways.. Believe me when I say, it would take a bad ass pc to topple the action and all rendering with no frame loss at 1920X1080P.. And the 360 is easily playing the roll of the little engine that could…
    It’s a shame that Resistance couldn’t be on the 360 as well.. It would have been fun to compare the frame rates of the two I think..
    I hope that all platforms do well all in all.. Weither a game can run this resolution at this frame rate shouldn’t be the question.. But as long as the games are fun and truly are next gen to me is by far more important.. And I’m sure that the ps3 and 360 will have that taken care for us in the years to come..But I personally never see me becoming a big Wii fan.. To me it’s the settling for a Monkey Vomit green 1979 chevette, in a world of high definition ferraris..Just not in the same category.And I personally think that even the name is lame… Even the much anticipated Zelda, is IDENTICAL to the game cube version…If something of that nature happened to me with my 360 and my xbox, I would sell my 360 immediately and swear to every living person that I never was a fool big enough to buy their NEW NEXT GENERATION system…I think the wii is perfect for the people that have just bypassed Barney tapes and maybe Blue’s Clues..Or maybe just teething.. Or if you are 80 plus and in an old home and personally never see yourself playing bowling ever again.. Or the outdoors for that matter, and would like to have some big bobbly head character to waste your little remaining time with til’ you get that big calling of bright light and go join Grandma.. For the rest of us,what does this system have to offer us?It could have been a $30 controller added to the game cube and been done with it.. So for that matter, the price of newly named game cube with a crzy controller is way overpriced and can easily be seen as the biggest rip off pricewise of the three.If I ever had anyone ask me if I had a vga connection or dvi so they could hook up their wii in high def? I would try my hardest to not laugh while answering with.. Why, Would it really matter? Followed by, Go hook your Mickey Mouse game through a s-video and be done with it.. : 0) OK, no more bashing on the wii, for it surely is something that I must not understand…My gaming will be cutting edge and leave the Mickey Mouse characters that star in their games way way behind..I tell you, Not even if I owned a preschool!!! : 0)

  17. woooow….. xbox “720” are you people serious? that doesn’t even make sense. 360 (meaning 360 degrees) is the measurement for a circle/sphere. 720 is nothing, all it means is something goes in a circular motion twice. xbox 720 is the stupidest shit i’ve heard its not going to be called that, it doesn’t even make sense.

  18. Obviously it will be called the xbox 1337 cause it’s so damn good.
    I never thought i’d choose ms over sony but the 360 does it for me so much that I don’t even want to touch a ps3
    bring on halo 3 now >.

  19. After reading the above, I agree that Sony have f**ked things up with their release. MS has had a head start, and a lot of PS3’s titles will have already been played by people with an XBox 360. I’m not taking sides in any way, and i will almost certainly get a PS3 in addition to my 360 and Wii, i’m just saying that Sony could have done a lot better!!

  20. Well….the developer guy is right in current sense because at the moment developers are really only using the 2 cores in the ps3 hardware rather than taking full advantage of the 7 SPE’s but dont forget that when the ps2 came out most developers didnt use all of its abilities. The ps3 will outperform the 360 if developers can fully use its power. And i expect them 2 not now but in 2 years time. So…if u want 2 buy a console now my advice buy a 360 or a wii but if u want a console in 2 years time then get a ps3. I got a 360 and my ps3 is in pre-order. I live in europe. So….cya ppl

  21. And I read somewhere that sony’s PS4 (Code name Deep Thought) will be the size of a small moon, however only one will actually be built, and Sony will sell small transporter devices shaped like wristwatches which will send, or “beam” people into the very heart of the GPU, where they can interface directly with the game of their choice.

    However, in a sneaky twist, the real purpose of the device will of course be to harness people’s thinking ability to answer the ultimate question:
    How can we maximise profit, while at the time minimising expenditure?

    As you can see their current attempt failed to answer this question very well….

  22. LOL!@Lewy
    Haha, thats maaaad, can u imagine a world like that =D – now thats soemthing worth investing into :), Oh but how will they designs games? Will it be a realistic person-in-game sort of thing? Wow, this opens up so many possibilities aye? and so much moremoney to be spent -.-

    Anyway, stop fighting over 360/ps3, this is about 720 (which the absolute idea of spinning twice infact, makes no fuc*ing sense what so ever) and yeah, i dont care what facts u can put up as figures, as long as it works and i can play halo 2/3 (when it comes out) ill be smilin’

  23. I currently have an Xbox 360, but I also plan to get a PS3. This is because they both have games that I am interested in as exclusives. I think the 360 has better controls for sports games like Madden and Need for Speed, but the PS3 has a lot of exclusives going for it. So stop arguing and hate the wii.

  24. I am a crazy Ratchet Clank fan and I here they are making a R C 5 for PS3
    I have a PS2 and am not planning to get a 360 or a Wii but if you have seen the comments from the 200 or more sites comparing the consoles like i have then you would agree with me.
    More than 50% said PS3 will wipe out the 360 as the blue ray disc reader and if you have a HDTV will make the Graphics 3 times as better as the 360 and a new little trick sony have learnt is the new real time gaming format in which nothing will ever be the same in the game no-matter how many times you play the same part. The PS3 is a hard drive also so that chops of another reason why you would want to buy the 360.
    Around 35% said that the 360’s title as the “ultimate gaming machine” title will not be touched as the 360 has its live gaming where you can play anyone anywhere as long as they have Xbox Live. The 360 does have a bigger range of games out for it but the PS3 hasnt been released yet and the PS3 apparantly will have more contracts to game developers and publishers.
    And the last 15% said they will clash as the PS3 will be more powerful but the 360 will have a much better gaming experience. And then theres the Nintendo Wii, well thats a different story but these will all be “old consoles” in the near future as the Xbox 720 and the PS4 or PSG (PlayStation Platenum) will reign over the Console Kingdom.

    Well thats all I have to say from what I know but its up to you to choose what you want to waste your money on.

    P.S. Rachet and Clank is the best and R C 5 will be Qwarktastic

  25. what the fuck is wrong with u guys, always arguin these 2 consoles, if u dont like the ps3 dont buy if u dont like the 360 dont buy, i own both machines, they both great of course they both have up and downs, who gives a damn i love my 2 machines. and wasssup with the ps4 and 720? hope they dont come out soon, hope they come out till 2014.

  26. their both awesome consoles.i only own an xbox360 and probably wont get the ps3 but im HAPPY WITH WHAT I GOT.y not enjoy the 360 until the xbox720 comes out.i would want it to come out in 2010 or 2011,but…..WE SHOULD ALL GET LIFES.
    SERIOUSLY…..

    XBOX360 ALL THE WAY….

    agreed…

  28. I Really Hope Deadrising2 Comes Out For Xbox720 (If not Shit Shit Shit Shit Shit)

  29. xbox is due for a newer model witha few updates, especailly the HDMI support. PS3 has it so they are already laggin in that area.. secondly why would micorsoft go to the trouble fo making an HD dvd player for xbox360 and not have somthing in the works, ever think of that? lets see HD games, HD dvd’s yet I can only get 720p resolution(upconverting at best)….come on guys its going to happen sooner or later, 720p is ok but 1080p is where its at, all the new screens lcd, plasma and micro display are braggin about the 1080p resolution, and thats also what blue-ray and HD-DVD are supposed to be viewed in….its comming weather you like it or not, for those of you whom have nothing better to do but complain about a new model or staing that x is better than y, I have some advice for you get off your ass and go meet a girl, and not one in cyberspace, dont wast your life infront of the damn tv

  31. I think think xbox 720 will be awsom. Xbox1 is better then ps3 and the 360 is better then ps3 will if you dont agree lisen to this. The ps3 may be better then 360 so far but what if the best game in the wold comes out on 360 HALO3 peaple will very shamed of themselfs if they spent $600 on a console and they have all these boring games and they could of sent only $400 on a console with cool games. So i would stik with microsoft.

  32. playstation 3 is obviously the supperioritizor in this whole mess all these x box nerds trying to get a piece of bill gaytz cack & balls need to shut there gay mouth and shut up again and then die because time will tell and if ur smart you would know that ps3 will come up on top as it pretty much already is just because u payed 400 dollars for a defeated system and pood ur panties when u saw the power of ps3 but in the back of ur mind ur just pisd off because u could have paid that 200 dollars for the true next gen so shut ur faces u dirty x box vaginas

  33. i recently interpretated the hacking l3321 deal on xbox 360 what a waste of time it seems to circumfrence the physiological aspect of gaming in developement on the other hand the ps3 substantually out depreciates the 360 not only in aspect to core/ vs power only to discover it is so much more powerful the sheer power of this system blew my pantis off and left me tumbling to the ground only to find out i had pood all over myself what im trying to get at is xbox 360 has no right to even be in this commpetition it would inherit more sense incomin the wii rather then a sub par unsubstantual processor ai and the 1000:i10 can’t be serious it is illogical to have this crappy system on the market especcialy trying to over throw and stand up to the ps3 HAHAHA makes me have a laugh

  34. What the hell are you taking about sam!, did you even read what i wrote.Or did you just read the bit ‘its better’. Man!!!

  35. [quote comment=”18817″]I think think xbox 720 will be awsom. Xbox1 is better then ps2 and the 360 is better then ps3 will if you dont agree lisen to this.

  36. yep! i have to agee with Cocko there the 360 may not be as good as ps3 now, but it will be but when halo three comes out, the 360 will be the best. And so will the xbox 720.

  37. Halo 3 is not going to be the best game in the world, get over it. Halo 1 and 2 were good but get old after a while, and halo 3 isnt going to make 360 the best system in the world. I’m sure halo 3 will get old in a matter of weeks, so get over yourself you retarded halo junkies.

  38. And besides, the ps3 has way better technology than the 360, and in two years, it will be better. AND THE NEXT XBOX IS NOT GOING TO BE CALLED A 720 THATS FUCKING RETARDED

  39. Thats not true still lots and lots and lots of poeple love halo 2. You may be thinking how do i know, well I have lots of friends that have a xbox and evrey one of them loves halo 2, that means there must be billions of other peaple love it.

  40. I think x-box is the same as x-box 360.I like playstation 3 is better than x-box and x-box 360. its just crazy inventing another x-box all the time. They should invet new things.

  41. Courtney xbox 360 is way diferent to xbox, didnt you read what cocko wrote about the best game in the world halo 3 and all the ordinary games on ps3 that you would just get sick of.

  42. ur all fucking retarded.360 is sweet and so will 720. so quit saying it wont and ps3 isnt better than 360 dumbasses

  43. The xbox 360 and the ps3 are the sameexact system, I have both and I like playing my 360 much better. Some game have BETTER graphics, the online play is much more fun, and It has a controller with letters and distinct colors on it, not some freakin weak peice of crap that has shapes. I also think that prices count for most people, anyone who wants to pay 200 more bucks for a system with blue ray disc go ahead, but when your cast away to hell and the devil asks, “How did you get down here?” and you respond, “I dont know, I was buying a ps3 and then…” “Wait a ps3 did you say” says devil, “Um, Yes” “OMG You’re Worse than ME!!!!”

  44. [quote comment=”18954″]ur all fucking retarded.360 is sweet and so will 720. so quit saying it wont and ps3 isnt better than 360 dumbasses[/quote]

    Cody is one smart kid!!

  45. playstation 3 is obviously the supperioritizor in this whole mess all these x box nerds trying to get a piece of bill gaytz cack & balls need to shut there gay mouth and shut up again and then die because time will tell and if ur smart you would know that ps3 will come up on top as it pretty much already is just because u payed 400 dollars for a defeated system and pood ur panties when u saw the power of ps3 but in the back of ur mind ur just pisd off because u could have paid that 200 dollars for the true next gen so shut ur faces u dirty x box vaginas.i recently interpretated the hacking l3321 deal on xbox 360 what a waste of time it seems to circumfrence the physiological aspect of gaming in developement on the other hand the ps3 substantually out depreciates the 360 not only in aspect to core/ vs power only to discover it is so much more powerful the sheer power of this system blew my pantis off and left me tumbling to the ground only to find out i had pood all over myself what im trying to get at is xbox 360 has no right to even be in this commpetition it would inherit more sense incomin the wii rather then a sub par unsubstantual processor ai and the 1000:i10 can’t be serious it is illogical to have this crappy system on the market especcialy trying to over throw and stand up to the ps3 HAHAHA makes me have a laugh

  46. Grrrrrrrr how many times have I got to tell to you this.

    720 will be awsom. Xbox1 is better then ps2 and the 360 is
    better then ps3 will if you dont agree lisen to this. The ps3 may be better then 360 so far but what if the best game in the wold comes out on 360 HALO3 peaple will very shamed of themselfs if they spent $600 on a console and they have all these boring games and they could of sent only $400 on a console with cool games. So i would stik with microsoft.

    Ow and I might add abit of Calebs wrighting about how could halo 3 is going to be.

    still lots and lots and lots of poeple love halo 2. You may be thinking how do i know, well I have lots of friends that have a xbox and evrey one of them loves halo 2, that means there must be billions of other peaple love it. And that means halo 3 is going to ROCK!

  54. [quote comment=”13328″]To some of you: it’s REIGN, not RAIN.

    Not until recently have I realized that I don’t really hate the PS3. In fact, if I was ever offered one (for a reasonable price, of course), I wouldn’t mind buying it. I just hate Sony heads like Ken Kutaragi who persistently brag about the system’s capabilities. When you look at all of the tech specs, the PS3 is obviously the more technologically sophisticatd system. But when it comes down to the bare essentials, how much of that processing power is actually attainable by game developers? Not much. Idealistically, the PS3 is superior to the 360, but REALISTICALLY, the systems are equal. If Kutaragi realized that, then I probably wouldn’t hate Sony as much. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Thus, because Sony is so arrogant, they think that the PS3’s success is garanteed. But this arrogance blinds them from the truth that it takes more than promises of amazing graphics and just good graphics to attract costomers. You need to IMMERSE the player into the game. You have to make them believe that they are a part of the game world. Graphics are only half of the formula. And the process of immersion is a continual effort. Sony’s arrogance deters them from realizing that. As a result, if a customer bothers to pay $600 for a single system, then obviously, he or she expects that that company realizes everything I have discussed and will fufill their promises. But you can’t expect that from Sony. Thus, for $600, I don’t expect to be getting much in return. On the other hand, Microsoft seems to understand this. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have created the hassle-free XBOX Live network.

    I’m siding with the XBOX 360 because I’d rather pay $400 dollars for system made by a company that understands game immersion entirely than pay $600 for a system of equal value made by a company that understands game immersion only half way.

    It’s not the PS3, it’s the people who made it that suck. In my eyes, the PS3 COULD HAVE been great. But Sony just f-ed it all up.[/quote]

    I just wanted to comment on this entry. I dont know if anyone else has touched on what i am going to say because i havent read on but here are my 2 cents. Even though i agree with quite a lot the guy has said, i dont think that just because Sony believe they can wow us with statistics and system specs we should hate the PS3. He talks a lot about “immersion” but Sony are pretty much responsible for the console and not the games which are played on it, dont get me wrong, there are games which Sony have developed for the PS3 but these titles are far out numbered by the ones that seperate developers have produced, which kind of cancels out the whole “immersion” statement because a lot of developers will carry their 360 titles across to the PS3. I have heard a lot of people saying that they cannot see much of a difference between the 360 and the PS3 or atleast not $200 dollars difference but we have to remember that developers are no way near tapping the potential of both of these consoles yet. The main difference is that the PS3 has much more potential than the 360. I remember when i had my PSX (the first playstation) when i was about 10 years old. I had it for a few years and the PS2 was released so i bought one of those. I remeber being quite dissapointed because the difference bewteen the two consoles was not great. The early PS2 games were of quite poor quality, but towards the end of the PS2’s life span the games have been of very high quality. If you go out and buy one of the earliest releases and compare it to a more recent release you will be shocked at the difference between the two. This is the same with todays consoles. Over the space of 6-7 years there has been a drastic improvement in the games we play. All i can say is with the quality of the PS3’s early releases, the amount of power that developers havent even attempted to tap and the potential of the PS3 we are in for one crazy ride. It took 6-7 years for the PS2 to show us its true potential, imagine what PS3 titles will look like in 6-7 years!

  55. With processing power , how much will it have? I think a nine core general purpose procssing unit would be awsome! Clock them at about 4.5GHz and call it a day. Each core can have one VMX unit and use a 65nm or 45nm process, that would be off the chain. The console would have 1 GB of system memory and would be split among the GPU and CPU (Thats about 512MB each) and slap a 80 GB hard drive on it. A target peak performance could be around 3.1 TFLOPS. BLOW THE SONY FORMAT OFF THE MAP!!!!!!!!!

  56. the xbox ‘720’ as u call it is actually called xbox ‘360 v2’
    the original 360 was codenamed ‘xenon’ and the 360 v2 is codenamed ‘zephr’

  57. The success of a system depends on the software, and seeng as there is almost 200,000 pro evolution soccer 6 owners on the xbxo 360 it would seem that the 360 is a success (this is just an example of one game) The PS3 is a more powerful machine, a machine sony are hoping to get 10 years out of. eventually the games will look amazing and the power will be unleashed but as of this moment the xbox 360 and ps3 are quite evenly matched! if you are comparing the video capabilites then you will find that the bluray drive isnt the greatest on the PS3, not when compared to a standalone blu ray player! as someone said earlier blu ray players are $1200 and the PS3 is $600, is it logical that the quality is going to be even close? i doubt it very much and so do many magazine reviewers out there. I work for a reputable elecrtonics giant in the uk and i have to say that for PS2, XBOX 360 and Wii the demand was huge. We were inundated with calls and had ques for these machines yet the same can’t be said for the PS3. Granted it has superior graphics and processing power over and above the Wii and 360 but does it offer anything new? if your going to come at me with “the blu ray drive” then you would like to know there is a format war between blu ray and Hd dvd. what if blu ray fails? what happens to your ps3 other than become the next minidisc! i might sound like sony bashing here but i would like to point out that i purchased on launch a ps1, ps2, 360 and Wii all based on thier merit as the next best thing! Almost all the electronic gadgets i own are sony (even a minidisc hifi and portable minidisc player – hehe) i totally respect their products and always plug them when selling in my store! I’m not saying there is anything wrong with the ps3 but right now i cant find anything right with it! the sixaxis motion controller seems to be a panic reaction to the Wii nunchuck, the price is expensive, and the major factor for me is that APPARENTLY the next edition of pro evolution soccer is only xbox 360. for the price of a PS3 you can buy a 360 and Wii and if you want high def DVD then wait for the format war to finish and those players will be cheap as chips! you can only go so far with graphics, the gameplay is the most important thing and for that nintendo is king! microsoft have done really well, i sincerely hope sony work on the gaming as aspect as much as they have worked on the visual, then i will definitely buy one!

    Hate Wii all you want, the sales number shows it

  64. Agree’d DontX

    I’m getting sick of fanboys poking each other from their comfy chairs. I’ve tried to teach them a little lesson about people having different preferences and that we should all just pick what we think appeal to us the most, and then settle with it! They just want learn! All they say is: “NOS I DONT HAVE TEH PS#/Xbox 360 THAN I MUZT DISS IT! OMG1!”
    I now try to speak their language.
    IT MAKES MY (and other’s too) BRAIN HURT! PLEAZORX STOPs DIS STUPID MUDTHROWING!!

    Kids, theres a console for each individuals needs. I know you want to neclect that fact, but its a cold fact.

    Now make with the minus karma, as I have noticed most comments here has been made by Xbox 360 diehards. Ciao.

  65. People! JUST PLAY YOUR SYSTEMS THE DIFFERENCE ISN’T BIG ENOUGHT TO TALK ABOUT SO JUST PLAY THE DAMN GAMES SHIT…

  66. I am a toal 360 fan and the 360 outperforms the ps3 no contest i am lloking forward to the x box 720 but i would like to get used to the 360 first plus if you own a ps3 you are a freak with nothing better to do than sit on your arse all day playing on an insignificant console so there (ps3 my arse)

  67. [quote comment=”9438″]xbox 720 will be cool[/quote]
    oooooooooohh! mmmaaaaaan its ccccooooll xbox 720 is cool i cant blady fuck bealive it

  68. i know this isnt a ps3 post its about the so called ‘720’ …

    everyone is saying just wait until the ps3 gets better, just wait…i own a wii (since release) and i own a 360 elite(since release)…

    I am still waiting, it has been 6 months since the ps3 has been released and i havnt seen it get any better all i have seen is the stock shelves grow, and this so called ps3 home will be the best…if anyone has played World of Warcraft you should of all learned that you get about three or four + active players in one small setting, and it will lag like made.

    Another point, Blu-Ray is going to fail, its everywhere. Sony created Beta to beat out VHS and what happened, sony refused to sell the liscensing so it failed. Yes it was better than VHS but it failed. Same story is going for the Blu-Ray HD-DVD may not be as good but it HD will dominate.

    This will be the generation Playstation fails.

  69. I’m not an XBOX 360 fan or a Wii fan or a Sony fan I just tell it like it is. PS3 is a powerful system with no games save only Resistance FoM and has potential but is technologically deformed. What good is it having great graphics when you can’t program these graphics without making the game cost nearly 100 dollars. 360 has games like Gears of War, BFME II, Kameo, Lost Planet and the backed up games like Mass Effect and hopefully (prays to God) KoTOR III and can eradicate the PS3 . The Wii is a real gem with fun first party games and soon to be good 3rd Party games… and it has great controls. In my opinion I’m not bashing the PS3 hell it looks great but Sony doesn’t have a company like Bungie or RARE or LucasArts to back it up. Oh and by the way if you took out the power supply out of the PS3 you would get a brick too. EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLES ARE BETTER people. Face it. Why? This is so because the heat of the power supply can burn out the CPUs on your console or kill the disc drive. This is the main reason the original thick PS2 died out every two years. I will admit the 360 does get hot but this heat won’t hurt anything without leaving it on on for a painfully long time. I will be honest with everyone here. I DO NOT OWN A PS3. However I have played and beaten 4 games since the time I started playing it with my friend. Resistance was great, the rest were bland.

  70. okwhy in the hell are ykall talkin abou the xbox 720 like any of us are going to be able to buy if the ps3 was 600 the the better new game system will be like 799 and 899 it will be unreal proces and i kno my parents won’t pay for that

  71. [quote comment=”11701″]Listen as far as i’m concerned why do we even need to pick sides. just get one and be happy with it. get a life and stop arguing about which console is better! Damn![/quote]
    this is just hell! I mean there’s frikin xbox elite and ps3 out. when you compare the two there practically the same. why the heck do we need another system

  72. Just lets brake this down a little bit. I own a 360, it’s actually my third 360 and I would get a fourth if I had too. The 360 is a great console because of it’s innovative way of drawing you into the game. Online gaming has been around for a long time but Microsoft were the first ones to turn into one single community that is totally linked together. How many times have you been in your classroom or at your job and said to yourself I can’t wait to get on Live to play some RB6 with my friends, this is what games are about. The ability to make you keep coming back for more and more thats why Goldeneye was so great and Xbox Live adds a whole other side to each game that comes out for the 360. PS3 has one thing going for them, they’re still really early in the game and have plenty of time to come out with some superior games once developers learn how to utilize it’s power. When the 360 came out most of the release titles were pretty lame, now the 360 seems to be coming out with amazing games every week. Nothing against the PS3 but I’m sticking with Microsoft and Live.

  73. wow! all of you nerds need to get a life and a job & stop arguing over a fricken video game consel! I have both PS3 & Xbox 360. Theyre both kick-ass game systems. They each have their ups & downs. I say theyre about the same. BUT PS3 has some really awesome features that 360 doesnt have. Same about 360. How did we get to talk about the war over PS3 and XBOX 360? I mean, this is suppossed to be about the xbox 720 (if that is what theyre gonna call it). All of you nerds just gotta get a damn life. AND K1LLGANNON thats wromg what you said about the guys grandma. THats just wrong right there. I dont care who you are that just wrong. AND some final advice to all you goddamn nerds out there. Meet a girl, get laid, get your sorry asses out of your mothers houses, dont spend your life in front of a computer screen or a TV screen, and finally: GET A FUCKING JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  74. SUP WIT IT LET ME TELL YALL SUMTIN MAYBE DA XBOX 360 IS BETTER…FOR NOW

  75. hey i wuz thinking about getting a new system but listening to all u damn nerds on this site i dont think i want a new system at all so maybe everyone should go outside once in awhile and stop calling people u meet online your friends u dumb fuckers

  76. “That said, playstation wont be making another console for a long long time. Think about how much money they lost just trying to beat the 360. Microsoft didnt put that much money into the 360 they actually made a profit. ”

    I’m not picking sides or anything but you’re wrong. Neither made a profit. In fact, the only one that did make a profit off of their systems was Nintendo and their Wii because they didn’t put nearly the money into it and focused more on gameplay and WHOLE LOT less on graphics. ha.

  77. Ok why does everyone always play the consoles so much!Why cant you just go outside and take a break

  78. PS3 Doesn’t have BETTER Graphics. It have better cell-proseccor and it can write more data in screen. Xbox 360 have better graphich-proseccor so it cannot write so much data but can do better graphics ;) (I don’t say this because I own x360,i say this because that’s true). Maybe in Xbox 720 there will be projector ;)

  79. And like Cocko sayed, xbox 360 have better games. GTA IV is coming to PS3 and X360 but only X360 have downloadable chapters because microsoft own the chapters! X360 RuLeZzZ!

  80. The Xbox 360 is way better than the PS3 and the Wii. The graphics on the 360 are alot better than the graphics on the PS3. Go on http://www.google.com and type in Xbox 360 graphics vs PS3 graphics.
    The Wii’s graphics are worst out of them all. Sure, the Wii is cool, the way you play and the online system but it’s only fun for a while. The 360’s online system is the best out of all three. You can load music from cd’s, and mp3 players and store them on the 20 gig hardrive. Then while you play the games you can liten to the music. You can also load pictures on to the 360 using a gigital camera. You can us the pictures as your backgrounds and themes.
    The Media center is great. Thats the place where you look ate you pictures and slideshows, watch movies, listen to movies, and do much more.The gameplay is great and there our so many games to choose from. And the main controllers are wireless controllers.
    On the 360’s online system you can chat to random people or people on your friends list. You can block people and choose who you talk to. You can Chat with a keyboard plugged in to your 360 or you can chat with a mirophone, (wich they now make wireless), and you can also connect a camera so the person you are talking to can see you. Also, the person you want to talk to doesnt have to be online if you want to talk to them. You can send them a messege. To chat, you only need Xbox Live Silver, wich comes free with the 360.
    The Xbox Live Marketplace is like and online shop. To Purchase things you use your points card. You buy a poits card at real stores. The More money you pay for a card the more points you get. You use the points to buy HD Movies, arcade games, playible demos, gamer pictures, themes, and much more. As you probably already know, you can play against people online. You can talk to them while you play. You can be on a team or against eachother. Most games are Xbox Live compatible. Another great thing about the 360’s online gaming program is the calander. You use the calendar to write all the times you are going to be playing against people. You also write the game and set alarms to remind you. You can also watch other people compete online and see their gamerscore. A gamerscore is how people know how good you are. To get points for your gamerscore you unlock acheivements. Acheivements are like trophys. To get them you beet certain stages of the game. Each acheivement has points that add to your gamerscore.
    The Xbox 360 is by far my favorite Seventh Generation Game System and I think it’s the best system and the one you should get if your looking to buy a new Game System. But thats just my opinion.

  81. People its not a Xbox360 V2 its going to be a complete new systeme that will come out in 2011 or 2012. With CGI like graphics

    Dude, not to sound mean or anything but you are kind of an idiot because NOBODY IS EVER COMPLETELY SATISFIED!!! Of course people are going to want more. People always want more. All 3 companies will most likely come out with another console after the “PS4” and the “xbox 720” and the “Wii 2”. So again people are never satisfied and besides graphics of these consoles actually do need kind of a lot of improvement especially with glitching am I right?

  83. [quote comment=”18920″]I think x-box is the same as x-box 360.I like playstation 3 is better than x-box and x-box 360. its just crazy inventing another x-box all the time. They should invet new things.[/quote]

    You RETARDED SON OF A BITCH HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE?!?!?!?!?!?! look at the god damn ps3 for crist sakes there has been 3 Playstations and only 2 xbox’s and yet you are telling microsoft to come up with something new?!?!?!?!?!?! you are the dumbest person in the WORLD!!!!

  84. [quote comment=”18374″]I Really Hope Deadrising2 Comes Out For Xbox720 (If not Shit Shit Shit Shit Shit)[/quote]
    deadrising 2 will probably come out for 360 in about 2009 or 2010 they will probably be a deadrising 3 for xbox 720(by the way 360 destroys ps3)

  85. Competition is healthy. Competition drives console technology to fast-forward into the future. Action will be arcade lightning-fast. No more pretty looks, snail-paced slow-motion enemy gang ‘happening all at once on the screen thang’.
    Console technology could lead science into making a real starship of the Enterprise from Star Trek – maybe a century from now. We’ll just have to accept what’s being offered. Our future grandchildren will remember our cool or dumb console remarks.

  86. All I want them to do is make a system that doesn’t overheat or scratch discs when it’s barely nudged. Also, I agree with DeadRisingBoy.

  87. you guys are all fags why does it madder wich one is better and as a matter of fact i have all 3 and my unc works for playstation but i still play xbox cause i think it is more fun and when u play on like it costs money so that goes into makin the xbox even better

  88. 720????
    They need to come up with something a little more unique, its sooo blan…

    Also must we get in a fight here?

  89. I like Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft; but I feel that Nintendo and Sony are going to do better because of the system hardware failure issue (that is the Red Ring of Death, though Microsoft could fix it if they use the 65nm chipset instead of the 90nm chipset they currently use and also if they put a fan with more blades in, these two fixes should stop the RRoD) also the fact that as games get bigger( HD content and Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound support take lots of disk space.) DVD media won’t be able to hold enough info to hold games, that is a problem with Grand Theft Auto 4 on the 360, this doesn’t play for the Wii though because it lacks HD support, which I believe will make it a little less popular in the future when HD becomes more popular. But I do believe the battle will be very close. I have a lot of friends who don’t have a next gen console at all because the 360’s red ring of death, the high price point of the PS3 and how hard it is to find a Wii (although if you try it isn’t that hard I’ve already picked up 3 of them, one for me and two for some of my friends) But I have to disagree with the latter part of the article, because PC gaming isn’t as good as console gaming. You have a much harder time playing with friends, you have compatibility issues, the cost of a gaming PC makes the PS3 look like a pack of gum, and the fact that you can buy the best gaming PC on the market today and tomorrow your PC isn’t powerful enough to run the new MMORPG. I believe that consoles will be even an even bigger percentage with the popularity of the Wii and the capabilities of the PS3 and 360 I think their percentages will be more like the PS3 with 33%, Wii with 29%, and 360 with 28%, and PC games will be at 10%. Sorry PC gamers your Computer does not have an Eight core processor, and your DirectX 10 video card costs a grand, and comes in the $349 X-Box 360. You argue controls, you say a mouse and Keyboard work better on FPS’s well then hook up a mouse and keyboard to the PS3 see what happens, hey it works weird.

  90. ps3 and x-box are both absolutley mint. I have both and would like to say that I have as much fun on either console. obviously ps3 having only just come out in march for the uk it doesnt have as many games as the x-box has to offer
    but as many people have written the ps3 does have a better overall on paper and as soon as game developers realise this there will be some brilliant games on offer. Like MGS4. So you just wait. Oh yer and you can go on the internet on ps3 and also Wii. something x-box either forgot about or couldn’t be arsed with.

  91. WTF????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Guys just STFU with this vs that! If you love PS3 and doesnt care if you waste big bucks for it fine thats cool. If you want 360 and hope it will not overheat then its your choice cool. And if you want wii with sucky graphics all right cool! Everybody has a choice. Dont talk 5h1t on any console because they’re all great. They have some problems but still. Just play your damn console and stop saying this sucks because it doesn’t. If it does then NO ONE will buy it. =)

    + PEACE +

  92. Actually i don’t have a job i bum around home but you guys should get a job anyway.

  93. The xBox 720 is planned for release mid 2010. The console will be half the size of the xBox 360 and will feature motion sensitive controllers.

  95. [quote comment=”12905″]i dont really see a big graphics difference between the 2 consoles,they are pretty evenly matched.i personaly would go for the 360 because it has about the same amount of power as the ps3 and its cheaper.i dought i dont think that microsoft will even be thinking about the 720 for at leest 4 years[/quote]

    Me neither until i put in halo 3 and they had to scale down the graphics to fit the huge game on a tiny 5gb disk. Mc i love you but ps3 can fit 50gigs on their disks allowing to fit tons of rendered unscaled down hd content. As far as power in the processors and stuff. The ps3 is superior but it doesnt really matter.

  98. [quote comment=”27023″]whats the point playstation 3 will always be better they cant beet em[/quote]

  99. ps3 won’t have any good games for ages and I doubt any of them will be able to use everything ps3 has to offer. the ps3 is faster and has better graphics but I still and always will prefer xbox

  100. Hell with both. I’ll keep my wii and watch the wife play Wario Smooth Moves in nothing but a thong. Keep the graphics and other bs. I like the perks of breast swaying.

  101. personaly i feel that neither system will b able to reach its full potential by the time a new system is ready for the shelves. i do own a 360 and if i had a chance to i would probably buy a ps3. they r both great systems. i think that the next console to come will b a complete home entertainment system. completely wireless, except for the power cord obviously. as of now you can get most of the 360 titles for a pc. and a pc is capable of much better graphics and speed. the next step for a top of the line gaming system is going to be one that can put the graphics, speed and gameplay of the pc version to shame. hell, the next system might even replace the pc as far as gaming goes. and as far as the wii goes, it was never intended to b the best machine. its not. its a secondary console. if you own 2 of the 3 systems, chances are that 1 of them is a wii. but its not your primary gaming system.

  102. This isnt going to be out soon though is it. This is going to be like 2011-2012.
    Sony like to leave around a 5 year gap between consoles so we are looking at a PS4 around 2013. Its going to be the same situation as the PS3 and xbox 360.
    720 will storm ahead at the start, get a good first year. The PS4 will have a slow start but own out after a year or so and so the cycle continues.
    The only things that might affect this is the fact that I dont believe Sony have the money to fund a true sequal to the PS3 and wont for a while and xbox/microsoft have the money to take over the world.

    sorry but the PS3 is over-rated

    the xbox 360 is under-stated by far, people think its crap because they think the PS3 is amazing when OVER ALL the console’s are really just the same as each other.

  116. I am an insider at Microsoft. I have worked there for 11 years and I know what will be coming next. Microsoft will be releasing a new system. No name has been decided on. It will most likely either have a sphere shape or keep the near same design as the Xbox 360. It will most likely be available in two different colors, white and black. It will be compatible with all Xbox 360 games and will be true HD, 1080p. The new Xbox will have a new disc format. Xbox 360 in my opinion will only be out for another 2-4 years.

  117. FUCK MICROSOFT. RED RINGS OF DEATH IS WHAT I GOT ON MY XBOX 360. I SWITCHED TO PS3 AND NEVER LOOKED BACK. FUCK XBOX. IT SUCKS BALLS. ONLINE SUCKS AND CAN’T BE COMPARED TO PLAYSTATION NETWORK. IT IS FUCKING FREE BITCH. WANT TO FUCK WITH PS3. I DON’T THINK SO. WI-FI, BLU-RAY, BETTER GAMES AND NICER DESIGN. SCREW BILL GATES, SCREW XBOX NATION AND SCREW XBOX HARDWARE. IT IS A FUCKING SHAME I SPENT $400 ON THE SHIBOX 360. I WASTED MY HARD EARNED GREEN ON A PIECE OF SHIT. I WILL KILL FUCKING XBOX 360. I WILL TAKE MY 360 AND BURN, PUNCH IT, THROW IT AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR FANBOY ASSES. FUCK MICROSOFT, FUCK HALO, FUCK XBOX LIVE, FUCK BILL GATES AND FUCK YOU.

  128. microsoft needs to fix the problem on 360 first before making another console.. coz i dont want the 720 to be as crap as the 360

  129. I am all for a new xbox coming out. What I do not like is that it could be so soon. I just got my 360 less than a year ago and I am fine with it. I really really do not want to go out and spend a few hundred dollars on a new xbox when my 360 is in fine condtition. I agree that microsoft needs to slow down and let the customers have fun with their products for a while before they go and make something new so they can make money. Microsoft will always have money so they do not need to keep thinking about it. They need to think about their customers money as well.

  132. well…i don’t care what system does what. just make some good games and don’t kill the old ones by changing what made them great. (cough) capcom. wii has kicked 360 and ps3. but now even wii is getting boring. so i really don’t care who makes what as long as the games are good. the lasted game that 360 had my attion was gears of war and thats been a while…..um for wii it was super smash bros brawl and that even got old and the game should have been out for gamecude…why wait for the wii? and last of all is ps3 and the game is GTA4 and i am very happy so far.. not much has changed just mostly the faces…. my rank is ps3 , wii , and the first xbox that now is just turned into a pc. love pharcyde. and ideas or disagrees email me at clowy311@aim.com and i be happy to smoke another one with you.

  133. now im not gunna rave on about how much better the PS3 is over the Xbox 360 ill give Xbox props i didnt think it would be ahead of Sony for so long the thing that screwed sony was the price and lack of games and the games it did have were basiclly multiplatform games and they were just a port of the Xbox version anyway so the graphics/lighting whatever game out worse u wont see a difference in consoles untill the developers work out the CELL (i put it in capitals because its spelt in capitals) after all the PS3 is even out doing in terms of power even the best PC’s PC is only at the same stage as Xbox 4 processors PS3 has 7 i am a proud owner of a PS3 but i will give props 2 the 360 even tho i hate the machine and will never own a Xbox the real irony in it all is when the Xbox was first being developed microsoft and IBM were working together to make a good machine..a year later Sony and IBM make the CELL

    No offence to anyone but I sort of agree because the 720 is basically 2 circles, I think it might just be an upgraded version of the 360, but you never know could be anything.

Dont be jealous ps fans just because xbox are outcreating the playstation no need to get jealous the xbox 360 might not have been as good as the ps3 but sony cant keep up with micrsofts developement and soon sony will be back to making televisions again whilst microsoft and nintendo advance in the gaming world.

    P.S: PS3 costs like £600 nd its gay

  140. woah woah wtf people,wasnt this supposed to be a discussion over the xbox 720? youve changed the entire topic to console vs. console, this debates been going on since the ps3 debut and i for one dont care eny more, as it stands each system is good in its own way for its own market. First up is the wii although it may have bad graphics and may not be amazingly fast. it is fun, keep in mind its marketed to mostly elementary students or people who just want a little family fun so dont get all up in arms if you dont like it dont buy it. Next is the 360, great system for its market, great games and some games not so great but a huge selection none the less, the online play quality shows up in all games. the systems downfall (dont get me wrong i ****ing love my 360) is that its graphics wont be getting above 720p, 2- its online requires money and the people who were barely able to save up and buy the system will find some games disapointing without online. 3- there are still glitches like the red ring of death or the blue screen of death, the random freeze ups and so on. Last but not least as some might say is the PS3, although many problems have been stated i still love my PS3 the prices have been dropped to 400 for the 20 gig so that solves most of the money problem, next its online is completely free so fun after youve beaten the main story line requires no extra money. another plus is that blue ray won the war so the ps3 now finds itself being the cheapest high def video player on the market. the ps3 major downfalls are its large lack of games out only for ps3, its lack of games in general, and the fact that game developers have yet to develop technology to fully utilize its power. Another thing to remember is that each system is based mostly for a different age . The 360 sells mostly to early and mid teens while the wii sells to people either in elementry school or people with kids, and the ps3 sells mainly to late teens and mid 20s so whatever your preference take your pick if you dont like one of them then dont buy it but please refrain from bashing and insulting randomly just because of your preference its not going to stop them from being built or sold.
    now that thats over with can we please get back to the topic at hand

  141. ohh and jako the sixx axxis controller technology thats is used on the ps3 was originally built as a controller for the ps1 in the late 90s so get your facts straight, but the wii is a fun system i bought mine the day of release im currently typing this using my wii mote

  142. There’s coming new controller from Microsoft, and it have “Sixx Axxis” thing. X360 owns PS3 with better graphics and games (and of course, with Live). I don’t say that PS3 totally sucks, it’s very good console, and it’s better for all media (Blu-Ray,HDMI,etc…), but i think that, we already have a PC for that all. And who cares will console have HDMI. It’s just little better than VGA, you need microscope to see the changes.

  143. And Khan, Epic games is already making new unreal engine for “PS4” and “Xbox 720”. Xbox 360 is cheaper than PS3, HEHEHE. LoL

  144. [quote comment=”18280″]will all be dead by 2014 ne ways so who gives a fuck[/quote]
    You talking about the end of the world in 2012?

  145. if anyone would like to see the “real” Xbox 720 just look it up on google, the real one is shown about dozens of times, it shaped as a small spherical shape with a green processor looking object, with a… just look it up online, very sophistcated.

  146. also i have read about people talking about the ps4
    sony is thinking about producing one and there is already a prototype, it’s just smaller and silver or white.

  147. hey ppl come on. most of us have just bought a 360 or ps3 so it’s not nice hearing that a new 720 is coming out. some people are so stupid arguing whic console is better. i mean the two of them are good on diffrent aspacts example the 360 has cooler game title but on the other hand ps3 has more usb ports. than the 360 is more fragile compared to the ps3 but now 360 wins on ps3 from xbox live. so if you just compare the two console youl see that if the ps3 have something better the 360 has something that the ps3 doesn’t have. so all the ps3 fans and 360 fans like me let’s just sit back and wait for upcoming games not for another 5years or so to get a 720 or a ps4 whatever……. just have fun and if you like ps3 buy it if you like 360 buy but once in for all stop arguing which is better both are fantastic compared to the older consoles.

  148. [quote comment=”11477″]I agree with Vretsu, Ha ha Only only reason this is happening they Feel threatin By Sony’s PS3.[/quote]

    never sony is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  149. I love elite xbox 360 is the best! 360 is my baby game!! some peoples go to jerking off on playstation 3 >.>

    GTA IV already killed and broke on PS3 is shameful! :D

    i’ve heard of do that about xbox 720 in 2011-2012? will be cool and the shit :)

  150. Having owned a PS3 and played all the greatest titles of the 360, I stand to agree that 360 has better textures and the best titles (obviously) but for some reason I bought a Wii. Oh well, I found like 4 good titles for the Wii, (and one of them is Call of Duty 5). It’s not arguable to say the 360 doesn’t have the best games but I would rather stick to something sleek and simple, for anyone else, I can only say, everyone has a different taste in gaming.

  151. [quote comment=”13392″]I’m, by far, an XboX fan, but come on people, the PS3 out performs the 360 on most levels. We would all be PS3 fans if it had the games to support it, but really, Final Fantasy is what is keeping the PS3 alive, imo. BlueRay OVER doubles the quality of the DVD feature on Xbox and your “at-home” DVD player. Also, the TPS (triangles per second) and the processor is faster/greater and cooler (temp wise) than the 360.

    When you look at actual numbers, the PS3 outperforms the 360, but there comes a point when the gamer doesn’t really notice the difference between 3.0 million TPS and 4.5 million TPS and really the only difference we will see is the load time, which doens’t really matter that much.

    Actually, Final Fantasy is coming out on 360 also. All PS3 has now is Metal Gear Solid, which is a great series, but it’s not worth 600$

  152. to tell u all the truth the 360 came out before ps 3 so when sony saw the 360 they came out with better so realy sony is behinde
    sony will also wait till the 720 is out and out do it to
    i really think they should be made to relleas at the same time

    and xbox will be the best for ever because of the halo players

    sony will never be able to match halo

  153. xbox 720 thats cool but is it gonna have a wi fi built in like the ps3 or u gonna have to by that adapter like 360 and is xbox live still gonna cost money cause if thats the case ill just get a ps3 shit dont have to pay for microsoft points to download shit ps3 u can download all the shit u want plus free online stuff so if the so called 720 if its gonna b called that u gonna b able to do same shit as u can on the ps3 or is there more answer these questions now!

  154. o and justin for ur comment the ps4 is gonna probably come out in 2010 or 2012 but to tell u truth i think they it gonna come out like 2015 cause it took em 6 years to make a new playstation the slim ps2 was just a stall tactic so they could finish ps3

  155. I think i can stand for everyone here when i say the people who prefer the PS3 to the XBOX 360 are the ones who have never played the 360. Being a gamer myself the XBOX LIVE feature microsoft created is much much better the the PS3’s internet. Sure u have to maybe buy the wireless adapter but hey if you can afford the console you should be able to afford the adapter as well. Honestly i think the XBOX 360 would still reign supreme if they only had a few games such as HALO 3 and CALL OF DUTY 4. And plus with the new major titles such as HALO WARS and FABLE 2 PS3 is sure to lose some major gaming fans off of just those titles. And another thing i wanted to get to was who cares about the stupid TPS (triangles per second) because in games like guitar hero 3 you dont have to hit the notes directly and you can still hit them which i think is a much better aspect than the PS3’s having to hit the notes directly. Otherwise EXPERT would be nearly impossible.

    My opinion is that XBOX 360 is the shit so anyone who disagrees can go jack off in the corner.

    BTW,
    If anyone who reads this plays HALO 3 on XBOX LIVE I have a 50 and anyone who thinks they can take me on be my guest.

  156. Well, i really like how they update consoles by making new ones, and i buy the new ones and all because i want to stay up to date, its that they keep getting more and more expensive, and i have gotten my 360 only a little while ago and then i have to go choose between a PS4 and an Xbox 720 (probably Xbox 720), and what do i do with my 360? sell it on ebay for $20? stop hanging new things in front of us! wait a couple more years

  157. i have both consoles.. i love halo and all the great titles on the 360. i always thought that id be a die hard microsoft guy but then metal gear4 came out and i saw the demo on youtube and i was hooked. 3 days later i purchased a ps3 and ive had the console since mgs4’s release date and im not disappointed. yea its expensive. but when i saw the $500 price for 80gb and the game included with the online game also included i mean.. come on. you pay 400 for xbox. then buy halo. 60 then you have to go pay for online which is 50 a year. if you can do correct math that adds up to $510. so in essense, now the ps3 has somewhat realized oh $H!T we really screwed up and lowered their price for the console. then from another side you have halo and you have metal gear. you have a high deff. player plus all the great title that come out from both worlds. i do believe that xbox has better games that are only out for xbox but they have also had a great head start. i do believe that the new microsoft system will again be better (at first) than the sony system but once game developers realize what the sony system can do i believe that ps3 will be better than xbox. then microsoft will come out with its new system in 20** whatever and will use what they saw in the ps3 to help them design the so called 720, and once again will get a head start over sony. lets hope that sony get their head out of their a$$ and just makes an equal price for the new system. then i believe it will be quite interesting to see who sells more. prolly xbox because of the titles but you never know.
