In today’s world, GAMERS play a very important role. Games are made according to their demands,many companies have earned a fortune by only making one game e.g Starcraft,World Of Warcraft,Call Of Duty etc. This whole phenomena started with the PC and then was taken over by PlayStation 2 (ps2),on the other hand MICROSOFT introduced its XBOX. Back in the days,The XBOX wasn’t much successful.Everybody had PS2,it came as no surprise that by January 2011 the PlayStation 2 had sold more than 150 million units,and sony has stated that it will continue to produce other PS2 titles until the demand ceases. After 10 successful years,PS2 is still The Best Selling Console of all time. On November 11, 2006 The PS3 was launched and has sold more than 47.9 million as of December 31, 2010. The Xbox 360 was Introduced on May 12, 2005 and sold out completely upon its release in all regions except Japan.
In today’s time,the XBOX 360 is more successful than the PS3 though the XBOX 360 has sold only .1 million units more than the PS3. The XBOX 360 is known as the PlayStation 2 (PS2) of today.
Below are the reasons why the XBOX 360 is more successful than the PS3.
1.No Cross Game Voice Chat.
On xbox 360 you can invite your friends to join in your party but on the ps3 you have to follow your friend from game to game just to talk to him.
titles such as UNCHARTED,GOD OF WAR,INFAMOUS,KILLZONE sure are great but all those franchises combined haven’t sold as much as only HALO (Xbox 360 exclusive) has.
The GPU is more powerful. It has more powerful fillrate, and far more pixel and vertex processing horsepower. Part of the reason is their choice of memory, and architecture of pixel and vertex processing. I can’t get into details but the same vertex shader will run much slower on the PS3 than the XBOX 360.
The three general-purpose CPU’s the xbox360 has are currently FAR easier to take advantage of than the SPU’s on the PS3
The Xbox live is much more fun than the PS3‘s Online.Xbox Live allows users to create a user profile, join on message boards, and access Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade and Marketplace and talk to other members.
Compared to The PS3,The Xbox 360 is better in all aspects.
