Playstation 3 vs Xbox 360

Dec 12, 2007
Back in the 90s the Sega console was very popular. Sega was the new thing right after computer games such as Prince of Persia and Double Dragon. Then Sony Playstation arrived and we never heard of the Sega console again. Then the Xbox arrived and a new rivalry was born between Sony and Microsoft. One thing was different. Sony Playstation didnt disappear like the Sega console. It stood its ground and today its still the gaming console to beat.

Today we have the greatest rivalries of the gaming world. Playstation 3 vs Xbox 360. Xbox 360 was launched almost a year before the Playstation 3 console. When the Sony Playstation 3 was launched Sony shipped more than 400 000 consoles to the US and by the end of the year that number increased to 1000 000.

Xbox had an advantage because of its earlier launch. It gave Microsoft the chance to build an impressive line of games, but Sony Playstation worked very hard to close the gap. Games which were available from the launch were Fatal Inertia, Ridge Racer 7, Resistance: Fall of Man and Need for Speed: Carbon. Before the Sony Playstation 3 were launched the console claimed victory at the Tokyo Game Show where several Playstation 3 games were given awards. Sony also made sure that the new console had no problem playing Playstation 2 games.

One of the things where Sony Playstation has the edge is that they created the games so that gamers are able to create their own environment. PC gamers have had this luxury for quite some time but it is new to the console world. Playstation gamers are now able to create new levels and environments for games. Microsoft took a much less enthusiastic view regarding to user created content.

Xbox and the Playstation are both equipped with online services but each has their own style. This is function none of the predecessors were able of doing. It has opened a new world of console gaming. Something only the computer gamers could enjoy.

Game consoles that were built for children are long gone. Todays consoles are built for adults. More and more adults are realizing that consoles like the Sony Playstation 3 are perfect where friends get together and enjoy an evening. Invite your friends for a tennis or football game. Girls and guys playing doubles tennis has never been so much fun. Play the Pebble Beach golf course from your living room. Win the Formula 1 championship. Challenge the guy in Hong Kong for a round of poker. The fun is endless.
