    naughty as the ps3 has better graphics now the only thing that xbox 360 is beetter in is the online and the games but the ps3 is working on thaat and it shows that the ps3 is more powerfull than the xbox and has better exclusivesa

  2. Zeal

    PC are always better then PS3. I think PS3 will expire in 2-3 years but PC will not…nythime 😀

  3. gamer

    well those who dont know micro soft makes computers and computer suppose to have that best graphics in tha world so that means 360 is tha better game than ps3 and all tha games that was compared 360 won tha most so its commen since 360s better

    enjoy it while you can because your gona have to buy a better computer every year maybe 2 if your lucky, also ps3/360 dont have game lag(not talkin online)

  5. Adamos

    Jon i have an 800euro pc from 2007 is nearly 2 years old and runs games at high without a problem thanks to an 8800gt if you want gaming pc you build it yourself and it will last 2-3 years easily without upgrades and upgrading a vga (which ususally is the only think that need an upgrade ) is quite cheap this days ( $100 cga can run most games high settings at 1080p case point ati 4770 ).
    Also lag doesnt have to do with the platform it has to do with your ISP and your internet settings ( speed etc)

    omg, you idiots
    hmmm lets have a look at the prices of these three cosoles
    PC £1,000 – £4,000
    360 £120 – £220
    PS3 £200 – £280

    I THINK WE CAN ALL SEE THAT!!!

    a descent graphics for a PC card costs more than two PS3
    and there the size of a hand

    computers are for the true gamers and they DO NOT LAG!!!

    people make that up because they have a cheap 1gb ram ddr2 computer
    and with a computer you get extras like windows etc.

    PC RULE

    Wrong wrong wrong and wrong. Microsoft makes operating systems for PCs. PCs are made up of different parts i.e. ATI and Nvidia make the graphics; AMD and Intel make the central processing unit; motherboards are normally made by numerous of companies. Power supply units and hard drives also made by numerous companies as well. So your so call “commen since” (common sense is the correct spelling) is washed out.

    omg your so ignorant. Go get educated, AND THEN talk about consoles vs PC’s as if you knew what you were talking about.

    Theres absolutely no argument here, the PC is better, no doubt about it, and if you fight against that, then read the first part of my message.

    I dont like pc’s mainly due to the poor op system, but when it comes to gaming even a cheap pc with a decent graphic card blows away the xbox and ps3. My ps3 recently packed in, which in some ways is a blessing as I wont waste good money on poor games anymore. Take fear2 for example, on the ps3 the maximum resolution is 720, it even says it on the box…who runs at this low res these days, borrowed a copy from a friend for the pc and run it smoothly at full hd on a 42 inch tv…the ps3 was so blocky by comparison…anyway thats my bit of input into the debate..pc wins as you can constantly update its hardware..

  12. Ahh Yeah Dawgie

    I dont care about the graphics i care about how long i will be anle to keep the system and Xbox 360 Blows based on the time you can keep it with out messing up. I have had 2 xbox 360s in the last 2 years and both of them have broken. the first was ring of death and now i have the open tray error. Now im all devoted to the Ps3. And ps3 does have way better graphics!!!

  13. Tha man U've seen

    PC will always have better graphics than a game console. The only problem is that its expensive to keep your pc up to date for the new games. And nog with DX11 comming up, the graphics on the pc are going to be undefeateble! I have a PS3 because i cant afford to upgrade my pc every month or 2. If money was nog an issue I’d damn shure would choose a PC over console. But between 360 and ps3 id have to go for the ps3. And thats only because Shooters look beter on an Nvidia card than the ATI in xbox(thats my oppinion). Id say, buy what YOU find the easyest to use of better looking. Experiance for your selfe.

    Peace!

    Pcs only have to update every 10 years… approx 6.5 lets see consoles top that XD
    Steam is better than xbox live and the fact that you can download it and not need fucking disks is beast

  15. Lewis

    ‘PC £1,000 – £4,000′ – Wrong. My PC was about £350 and it can max all the new games.

    Specs wise, it’s better than both of the consoles

    Phenom II x4 955 3.2ghz
    2gb ddr3 ram
    8800gts 512mb

    wow you picked all old games that everybody w/ a brain can tell you that they ported all those games from the 360 and plus we all know that they rushed and lost code for the ps3 all because they wanted to make it multiplatform. Look at borderlands etc ps3 show way better. And finally gow3 and uc2 looks better than any thing on 360so get your fac ts straight you fuckin homo basement dwelling dipshit.

  17. LD

    you’re all looking at old game dummys! any=thing from killzone 2 on has been just as good if not better than 360. the only reason pc is betterv is because the hardware is always changin damn y’all are dumb

  18. anthony

    Geez, I really think these console wars of which has better graphics is just stupid. Who cares which has better graphics. They’re both great systems with many different perks to each. Besides is’nt it about gameplay not how pretty the wraping is? I own both systems and like both about equally. But honestly, I do play my 360 a lot more the games are definetly better. But I do enjoy killzone 2, & resistance 2 but, Halo killers they are not. These pictures though as well as many other gaming magazines all seem to agree 360 games look better. The difference is small and negligable though. One noticeable thing in PS3 games is the lighting effects really are behind 360’s. But the PS3 is more reliable than 360 for gaming, “See red circle of death”. But honestly my PS3 continues to collect dust, because the games really are not that fun. Take LAIR for instance gorgeous game on PS3. Even better looking than most 360 games. But htis game is about as fun as sucking on razor blades “It sucks balls bad”. But if all you care about is how games look be my guest to play and see. It feels like to me with my PS3. Is that I continue to wish in one hand and shit in the other. Continually watching to see which fills up quicker in my continuing wish that PS3 games will get better. Sony in my opinion has always way over hyped the potential of their systems. But we will have to wait and see.

    now look u stupid fucking console queers. pc is always better than ps3 or xbox. the reason u homos are claiming that consoles are better is because u havent seen a TRUE pc instead u have seen some fucking old box with a 256 ram installed which u can only play fucking tetris and super mario.

  20. 360champ

    360 is the best bar none. i had rrod ONE time and i bought another one and it works perfect. Plus the online support is ownage. PC’s are for queers who can’t afford some worth playing on and pc games are ports from consoles. ps3 is not bad either but im looking at the game they each offer and 360 wins. pc= home fags with no real intetion of getting LAID!

  21. xboxforlife

    This guy above is right. xbox 360 are complete ownage in gaming experience. the game lineup is awesome and online support kicks some serious ass. And the guy “tripod” doesn’t have a life and is a stright fucking jackass retard whose mother should have swallowed him and fucking killed his ass. Tripod buddy, you serously need to get laid. hahahahahahah douchebag hahahaha

  22. Neptune

    There isnt a clear cut win. For the easiest game experience and a decent lineup the 360 wins. For people that want a machine that has superior graphics, does more than just video games, and is upgradeable the PC can’t be beat. A pc with better specs than a 360 costs about the same these days if you know how to build one. Oh and by the way, excessive name-calling no real reason….grow up guys. It’s just a game.
