PS3 vs Xbox 360 vs Wii
Based on the latest facts, news and rumors, I have decided to make a post on who I think is going to be the ultimate winner of the Next Gen Console war.
Here is a quick run down of each system:
PS3: This system features Blu-ray discs, for movies and games, allowing more high-def content to be stored, then any other system. It also has tons of rich features including alternate Operating Systems, and full multimedia playback. It also has a decent (and growing) online community, and a fair selection of games. It also features horizontal integration with other sony products such as PSP.
Xbox 360: This is very intergratable with windows pcs. It has full multimedia playback, including HD-Dvd (for an additional 200 bucks), but the games are only in regular dvd, limiting them in their expansion. It has a huge online community and store, and a great collection of games.
Wii: Very Inovative. Sensor controllers wii sports and really fun active style to gaming. A pretty good game base, lacking in online community, but has a nice wii channel service.
Conclusion: Based on the above info, and other information, rumors, and facts, I am going to use the following analagy to describe the winner.
This race is much like a normal race (like a sprint). The wii being light and small, gets a nice head start. Being smart, he kicks off really fast. But as his innovation gets a little old, and his endurance starts to slack, then he will slow down . Xbox 360 is sleek, cool, and pretty fast. But not very good kick off. A little slow, but gains some good momentum, and keeps up a good long fight. But after the wii dies down a bit, he will start to slow down. Now the Ps3, is pretty slow. After it builds up from a jog, it will start to gain some speed. It will then start running full tilt and pass the wii. Then coming up on the xbox 360, who is slowing down, the ps3 will pass it after a good run. The wii will stop, then shortly after the 360 will stop, but the ps3 will keep running.
This is all because the Ps3 has a 10 year lifespan. Meaning its technology is going to be current for the next 10 years. Where the wii is only advanced in the way of new gaming, it lachs the specifications to stay in the run for very long. The xbox is pretty advanced, but its dvd games will not match sonys.
And one final thought befor this long drawn out post ends. Many people think that the ps3, and xbox 360 games match in graphics and physics. This IS true. But ONLY for now. Because the ps3 has about 5 times more room on 1 disc then xbox does with its dvd. This allows way more content to be stored. And the ps3 processor is a fair bit stronger too. And remember, everytime a new system comes up, the first few months of games suck. Developers are not able to push the limits beacsue at first they dont know the limits. But as the race continues, and the limits are pushed, I am confident that the ps3, will out perform every system.
