    Yet the games for both consoles look equally good and the development cycles seem to be equally long. Yea the PS3 sure is a "failcake" :rolleyes: ... Please go troll elsewhere.

    The article linked by the OP is old, the PS3 system overhead no longer takes up that amount of memory as there have been firmware updates which have reduced it.

    Secondly; yes, the PS3 has 256mb dedicated to the processor and 256mb for the gpu.
    BUT, the gpu can also access the main system memory. Not only that, the gpu memory is ddr3 @ 1.4ghz (the same as the Xbox 360's 512mb total memory), but the system memory is XDR @ 3.2ghz which gives a higher bandwidth.

    Long story short, you could link articles all day which would make one console or the other look better.

    meh, now I feel all dirty having talked about consoles instead of pc's

    But we all know that pc's are far superior *runs for the door* :p

    Seriously though, instead of posting links to 'Microsoft rep said this', and 'Sony rep said that', maybe it would be more productive looking at things on a hardware level. Even so, you can't make direct comparisons of the technical capabilities of different consoles, they just do things differently.

    Here's a pretty good objective comparison of features: http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/xbox360_ps3_wii.asp

    Only thing that's a big fail here is the OP pulling out blogs from way back in 2007......Not even any comments either.

    PS3 is more than capable of delivering great looking games. End of story.

    I would hardly call the PS3 a failure. Mine works fine, has some great games and plays Blu-Ray discs. ie. Does exactly what I bought it for.

    With yours at the top of the list for fanboy stupidity.

    Do you even own a PS3, if not why would you go out of your way to post old articles of this nature....i mean not even a comment from you on why your posted them or what exactly you want to discuss about them, if your here to discuss the up and downs of having a PS3 or a 360 then by all mean do so, but posting topics with silly names and adding not one word on why your doing is plain fanboy trolling.

    And its not the first thread you dumped in here having added nothing too it and then disappear, so what did you expect to happen.

    Come back when you have at least some views to add to your so called topics.
