The gaming industry has never been the same especially when Sony Corporation Entertainment released the PS3 and with Microsoft releasing one of their own called Xbox 360. For some time now, these two consoles have been close competitors in the gaming console market. It would not be surprising if you are having difficulty choosing which console would fit your lifestyle. In these kinds of scenarios it would be best to do some comparative research of some of the console’s competitive features.
When it comes to the console’s motion controller system, it would seem that Xbox’s Kinect motion controller system is more convenient than PS3’s Move. Kinect leaves the hands free allowing gamers to focus on the game while PS3’s Move keeps your hands tied up. When it comes preserving video game compact discs, PS3 slimline is equipped with a hard drive which has a greater edge over Xbox’s hard drive. With PS3 having 160GB and 320GB versus Xbox’s hard drive which only has 4GB and 250GB, it is pretty obvious which has a more better hard drive system.
When it comes to the units’ prices, PS3 is more expensive. Xbox costs less even if you purchase it along with its Kinect special package. However, PS3 has a special feature which allows it to play Blu-Ray movies versus Xbox 360 which is worth the money if you are willing to shell extra. In addition, the PS3 has a better multimedia capability when it comes to graphics especially when watching Blu-Ray movies than Xbox 360. On the other hand, Xbox provides a better high-definition gaming experience which can be very competitive against what PS3 offers.
With regard to gaming experience, Xbox 360 offers a better online gaming service called Xbox Live which costs an annual fee. Though you will have to pay extra for this service, it is regarded as one of Xbox’s best features compared to PS3. The good thing about PS3’s Playstation Network or PSN is that it offers more free online games than Xbox.
Overall, the two consoles are worth your money either way. The console that you would be purchasing just depends on your lifestyle. If you are the kind of individual of who prefers playing online with family and friends then Xbox would work better. Now, if you prefer to have a console which almost does everything you want then you may want to go for PS3 instead.
