which is far superior? how is it far superior? library wise? difficulty wise? memory wise? your dumb. it just has more games.

no more ranting. i know whats the best despite others inablity to see past loyaltism.

playstation 3 will be more online than xbox offering broadband connections and serverside processing which is how they will get 1000 times better graphics. instead of having all the power in the core cpu/gpu/mpu the ps3 will have a highquality cpu/gpu/mpu yes but also an i guess "opu" or online processor where graphics and/or more are done online and delivered to the ps3.

this may have some problems with fans who have to always pay a monthly service to play their ps3 but graphics will be ablazingly amazing.

these are rumors from respectable news sources like gamespot.com or other sites. i go to so many i forgot.

yeah, technically the xbox is far more powerful than the PS2 in every department other than the fact you need a lil dongle to play DVDs on the xbox. that really is it.

OK, you're wrong. Some bloke made the game "Space War" on a computer (not a PC, but nonetheless a computer) in 1967. Home computer games were in use as of about 1979. The first console didn't hit the market until the 1980s.

This is all based on vague blurry memories. Correct me if I'm wrong...

I am a die-hard Sony loyalist, so they will always get first priority for me. Oh, and I hate having to install and configure PC games, so I don't use them. My PS2 is more reliable than my needs-upgrading-to-play-any-new-games WindowsME-powered PC. Just my opinion.

I would just get PlayStation 3 because of the incredible selection of games Sony makes. And if they continue the trend with the console being able to play games from consoles past, the selection would be endless.

your wrong and right... first consoles were non cartridge based gaming systems. but the first "computer game" was made by MIT using a 15inch CRT.

"1951
Ralph Baer, an engineer with Loral, a company that develops and manufactures complex military airborne electronics, is instructed to "build the best TV set in the world." Baer suggests they add some kind of interactive game to the TV set to distinguish it from other companies' TVs, but management ignores the idea. "

"1958
In an effort to keep visitors to the Brookhaven National Laboratories in New York from being bored, physicist Willy Higinbotham invents an interactive table-tennis-like game that is displayed on an oscilloscope. He improves on his invention a year later by displaying it on a 15-inch monitor. Believing that he hasn't invented anything, Higinbotham doesn't patent the device. "

"1967
Baer and his team succeed in creating an interactive game that can be played on a television screen. They develop a chase game and follow it up with a video tennis game. They also modify a toy gun so it can distinguish spots of light on the screen. "
