Default PS3

All I can say about it is DISAPPOINTING
Graphics are nice
Game speeds are decent...
But for 600 bucks you'd think the games would have faster frame rates faster leading speeds better controls... there are SO MANY buttons that you have to use it gets really confusing really fast....
IMO Don't buy one

i would get the wii just for call of duty 3, but IMO nothing beats a pc with keyboard and mouse for FPS games.

Microsoft will always be better than sony as far as the gaming systems(even though I made a stupid decision of buying the ps2 over xbox). I will try to get a 360 also, but somethin has to go, cant spend money on games, rc, and clothes.[:-]

Everyone says computers are better but it depends on the game. Shooters are good on computer, but most sports games suck.

the only game you'll ever find in my computer is the Microsoft flight simulator.. it's soo annoying memorizing what all hundred and some keys are while playing CPU games.

I like the PS2, it isn't complicated and the graphics on Gran Turismo 4 and other later games were really nice. The only problem with GT 4 is that a 750 hp '70 Chevelle sounds like a stupid tuner, not a muscle car. If they fix that on GT 5, it'll be a great game.

I want to get one when the price goes down. The cool thing about playstation is that you can play all of the older games on it. That right there is worth it to me. Eventually my PS2 is going to break down and will need to be replaced anyways.

When you say the speed is decent, how is it compared to the PS2. I'm satisfied if it's anything but less than the PS2. I'm not a hardcore gamer or anything so I like the DVD player and all that extra stuff. It's nice for my bedroom TV.

I also think the stuff like graphics and speed depend on the games you like to play. Some of my favorite games are the Gran Turismo and Ratchet and Clank series. I will buy a PS3 just for Gran Turismo 5.

Im a Gran Turismo fan also, im sure GT5 will be very promosing havent seen it yet, but hopefully 360 will have some very nice racing similation games out there also. I use to play GT4 alot, I even did one of the 24hr endurance races and won a formula 1 race car. Last time I remember, I had over 5million dollars and over 50 cars, most being race cars.

please note that if you are talking about a controller, you can get a very cheap game controller for pc, even though mouse and keyboard are the best. PC's are superior to any console. even the "mighty" ps3.

Of course you can get a controller for the computer, that doesnt make the game better. I have NBA Live for PC and PS2, and the PC version sucks, alot less features. This is what I was referring to.

I'd get a wiibox instead of a PS3. Buy a wii and a 360. The 360 for graphics and lots of games and the wii for fun stuff!

Default RE: PS3

All of you guys are missing the boat on consoles. Sure PC's are great for games, but if you don't have the latest and greatest hardware, you turn down the graphics, deal with patches, servers crashing etc. I also like the mouse and Keyboard on a pc, but the Xbox 360 will support mouse and keyboard pretty soon. Also, for those who think their PC is more powerful than a ps3, they are sadly mistaken. The PC's you and I are all on have very quick processors but utilize memory very poorly. Our processors never reach their potential because of the architecture. The Cell in the PS3 makes very good use of memory and doesn't require so much reading and writing, and this is why it is much faster. While on paper we have more Ram, a dedicated video card with our its own gdr3 vram on a PC, it doesn't mean that the graphics are better on a pc, or that the PC is quicker. You are running windows on the PC, this requires a lot of resources, and then games are written to work on DirectX9/10 now a days. They aren't written for your specific hardware setup, so the games aren't optimized nearly as much as they could be. Look at the late xbox (not 360) games, they were running on what 300 mhz processors and they looked as good as my 3.0ghz easily.

Consoles are great for many things, and PC's are great for many things. Neither is really better than the other. Also, someone said that you can upgrade individual components on a PC. Yes that is correct, but did you know you could get a top of the line ps3 with controller for the same price as a decent directx 10 video card? Add to that the 2 gigs you'll need for the newer games, that raptor HD you wanted, the new motherboard for that new socket processor, a liquid cooling system for overclocking, and a bluray disc or hd-dvd disc player, you can quickly see that the Consoles are cheaper. Plus, while I like my flight sims on my computer, nothing beats killing people on my 50" Sony SXRD in 1080p.

Just my 0.02.

Also, Xbox 360 doesn't have Gran Turismo, but look for Forza 2. The forza series is hands down way more realistic and way more fun and challenging. I can't wait for it to come out.

Just thought I would put in that on the next Gran Turismo there will be more than 6 cars racing at any time. My dad's biggest complaint with GT4 is that you can't change how many people you race against unless you do two player- two cars. I forgot what the next one was going to be called. I will look.
