Well do you have any links to back up your claims?
I have a PS360 combo...for all you Wii60 people...
Oh and I am typing this in the PS3 browser...
Well lets look at the 360 and PS3 specs again
360=3 core 3.2ghz PPC
PS3=8 core 3.2ghz PPC64
360=500mhz ATI graphics 512mb shared with system
PS3=550mhz NVIDIA graphics 256mb dedicated to video
360=512mb DDR2? RAM shared with graphics
PS3=256mb XDR RAM dedicated to system...
they both have the same amount of ram, however they are using different kinds of ram and have distributed it differently. The PS3 uses a faster graphics card clock speed and obviously has a processor that is more powerful. The XDR Ram is considerably faster.
THE PURE NUMBERS ARE MISLEADING.
When you benchmark the systems or do side by side comparison, the 360 is better. Ps3 has larger numbers but it is a great challenge to develop in that environment and get the most out of it. it will be a rare example if you can find a game that will make use of the extra horsepower in a way that is impressive. for the most part, it will go to make up for the poor dev support by making room in ram for sloppy coding.
The development tools for the 360 are a godsend, and it uses GDDR3 ram, not DDR2...
The 360 might have lower numbers, but the hardware makes up for it. The GPU is the best out there, and it isn't limited to 256MB like the ps3. The lighting is why you will never see anything as good looking as Gears of War on the ps3, all you get is the cartoony Resistance: Fall of Man. NVidia Sucks anyway, even Nintendo knew that before building the gamecube.
No, the ps3 sounds more like a web server then a gaming rig. maybe someday it will come packaged with Solaris.
