    Xbox 360 delivers for games. Alot of fine quality games are out for 360 only.

    It is just the overall better system.

    Many people still claim that the Betamax was superiour to VHS. I think the post pointing out that it is often parents who buy the systems makes a very good point. What parent is going to buy the $600 system when there's a perfectly good one available for $400?

    I couldn't agree with you more. But, if Sony makes a few hardware changes and cuts the price down to near the 360, that playing field will be equal.

    If the hardware changes defeat the purpose of their current platform, that's a different story altogether and would need to be revisited.

    Besides, how many parents will buy a 360 when their kids are screaming for a PS3?

    I own neither consoles, but am thinking of renting both of them and put out a review.

    I have to admit I was actually contemplating something similar, however I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to get both console controllers to do the exact same actions to parallel the game output on two screens. Only options include jury rigging some sort of control splicer or having some method to record my actions on one machine to be replayed on the other. The interesting point in doing both those however is how the Randomisation is going to be done on each machine, will the AI do the same thing in a robotic form or will it spawn differently like with what is suggested about Assassin's Creed?

    No need. Simply rent the games that are available for both systems, play the game on one system and then the other, and make comparisons on graphics, rendering, sound, etc. It should be pretty straight forward.

    That will work for personal judgements, however I was thinking something a little larger

    Are you serious? The kid says, "I want a PS3". Dad says, "OK, cool. I could play it too." Runs down to the store, sees the price tag, has a heart attack. So he asks the video geek working there, "Hey, why is this game system so expensive? Is there anything comparable for less?" Viola. The kid gets a 360, and is probably pretty happy with it.

    By the way, I prefer the 360. I'm just making the point that parents care more about price than some subtle differences in gameplay that requires you to link the game sytems via some kind of robotic interface to detect.

    Given the lower price and better lineup of games, it's 360 hands down.

    Why personal? Is there some reason why one cannot make unbiased comparisons between the systems when all else is equal and come up with a valid and credible review? :shrug:

    Should be easy, given some time.

    I meant that it's the same strategy Sony(and Microsoft and Nintendo) used vs. Dreamcast. They made a slightly better product a little while after, and the price eventually dropped. Also, the Dreamcast did very well, I think part of the problem was actually that they didn't make enough consoles to supply the demand. I forget all the details, but it was something like that.

    that isn't the best indicater because it was out first. It slipping do to hardware problems. it doesn't matter how good the games are if the hardware craps outs. hell i've played 360 it isn't bad but it has problems that the wii and ps3 don't which is hurting it.

    the current trends in consol sales predict that the ps3 will out sell the 360 in august. and i would like to add most of the people who i have talked to their favorite 360 games aren't exlusive in fact most big titles are not exlusive for the 360 hell halo and bioshock are also on pc and you can upgrade your pc to runn them for less than an x-box

    That's necessarily a true statement. I know if I was to upgrade my main stack for either of those titles, I'd have to go about replacing the motherboard, then the need for a processor, RAM, Graphics card, new operating system etc. Before you know it I've bought the XBOX over about 3-4 times and 1 PS3 to boot.

    Specing a PC for Games playing is not a cheap matter if you want to compare it graphically while being stable enough to play.

    the 360 cannot compare in reliability though. and the lineup of games isn't better most of the top games aren't exlusive like halo and bioshock
