The PS3 is pricey and is really out a bit early.

Your best bet is a 360. Many cool games are already bargain priced and others are already available used.

The PS3 will be a better value next year in 2008....

Mod - please put this thread in "Console Games" - thanks...

Thanks - one thing that im worried about is if Microsoft will put a HD-DVD in the 360 - im in Japan so they may do that to boost sales here..I would love to have one of the next gen formats but How do they look on a standard screen ???

I'll preface this with a full disclusure: I own both consoles.

As far as tech goes, I don't see much difference. Both look and play great. Perhaps when more games are out that are not ported, we'lll see PS3 having an advantage, but that is conjecture at this point.

As for games library, 360 wins handily. It has been out longer, developers already have a handle on it, and I doubt we'll see the PS3 overtaking it in terms of quantity anytime soon, perhaps ever.

Exclusives? You have to make that call for yourself. They both have their advantages in this area.

Price? For just playing games, it is a no-brainer. It gets more complicated if you start thinking about adding wireless or wanting to play next-gen movies. The more thingss you want your console to do, the better ther PS3 starts to look.

I don't think you can make a bad call either way. Happy Birthday indeed!:)

I agree, I also own both and I like the PS3 better. Even though there isn't a huge supply of games right now there are over 100 titles coming out during the rest of the fiscal year.

Plus in Japan your friends will all have a PS3s so with free online it'll be better to play with them online. (That sounds awkward but I think you know what I mean.)

I'll preface this with a full disclusure: Both consoles are under my roof (all inc. the Wii).

If you want to play games, a 360. It simply has more of them.
The PS3's controller is atrociously light. If you got a PS3 I'd recommend you ditch it completely, or just wait till rumble has been dated (will add weight - rumble motor, bigger battery etc).

Thing is - the 360 has been established now. huge software and community support, best online features of any console, fantastic controller (using one for my PC). Only shortfalls being the price is still quite high to say it's now 18 months old, lacks built in WiFi and has hardware problems. The PS3 has one of the biggest uphill struggles since the Saturn/Dreamcast/3D0 or any expensive system the public basically shuns in preference to the competition.

Ps. Japan is no longer land of Sony. The DS :eek:

Xbox 360 no question asked. Well one question, why?



FPS Xbox 360 has the most, and the best...Halo 3?!!! Star Wars Games- Well we know it has BattleFront 3 coming for it(not confirmed for any other system yet) KOTOR III would most likely be on Xbox again, and that new Star Wars game(I forget its name) is on XBox 360 and PS3. RPGs are going to be its weakest point, it has Elder Scrolls, and possible KOTOR 3.

go to your favorite gaming site, (IGN, gamespot, 1up, eurogamer, etc) look at games coming out for each system, look at what the system itself has planned for it.

Make a decision off of that. Forums are the worst place for system buying advice :o

The PS3 looks sensational on a HDTV.

I miss the rumble.

Btw, with the PS3, will I get any Steering Wheel Force Feedback? I want to get a wheel for my PS3 but if I don't get any force feedback then i don't see a point in getting one.

Forums are the worst place for system buying advice :o

I decided to buy a DS rather than the PSP not too long ago based on the advice I got in this Forum and I absolutely love my DS.

While he is in the land of Sony, everything XBox 360-related is also a lot cheaper in Japan, as Microsoft is desperately trying to get the Japanese to buy it.

I actually don't know which to recommend.

If you are willing to wait out the storm then the PS3 is a good buy but if you want to get down to it then the 360 is your machine....be warned though the 360 console is known for coughing up blood within months of buying.

All three systems under my roof here.

PS3 is online playing Armored Core 4 online.

Wii is collecting dust when people are not over. Great party system.

Xbox 360 is in for repair thanks to spring update. There goes my chance for Halo 3 beta.

Get a PS3 because is going to be a great year for the PS3.

I say just look up the games coming out for each system and figure it out from there.

I have no time to figure out what system to get, I just want to be able to play any game I want when I come home from work, lecture or lab. :D

If (like anyone with sense) you want to buy a console and play games in the same month you'll be best with a 360. There are games actually in the shops for that, not just titles written on paper with a date next to them.

There are also games coming for that as well. As was said up there, it depends if you want to play games (With a top draw online environment) or watch Blu-Ray, wait for games, heat your home and see that it is actually possible for a controller to float...

In Japan? Get a 360. MS is subsidizing them so heavily over there trying to gain some ground against Sony that you'll get the system for a song, and you'll likely have lots of "value priced" games to chose from, compared to the PS3.

I really like my 360. Haven't played the PS3, and won't most likely, so I can't give a really honest opinion. I HATE the "dual shock" controller. Worst design of all time, imo, which is why I haven't bothered with the PS3. The 360 controller is really nice, though, and the system itself, while loud is pretty good.

I've enjoyed GoW the most so far, and I've started Elder scrolls, but GoW interrupted it so I will be starting over at some point. However, the XBLA is fantastic. Geometry Wars is lots of fun, there's plenty of great retro arcade titles, but Settlers of Catan was probably the best $10 I spent in 2007. The online play for the XBox is pretty good, like everyone says Live is well made, but there's some things that I think could use some work... fortunately MS seems to be intent on updating Live pretty often, so it gets better with age.

The graphics, from what I can see of screenshots and online videos, of the PS3 and 360 seem to be about the same. The PS3 has some stuff in the works that might be pretty impressive, but I withhold judgment till it's actually released. Until then, GoW is easily the best looking game on any console right now, and it's an absolute BLAST to play.

I'll preface this with a full disclosure: I own neither console. I have never played on a PS3 and my only experience of the 360 is five minutes here and there in a Virgin Megastores.

Get neither. Get a DS.

Maybe since Japan is such a "tight knit" videogame market you're better off asking people over there...

The US is mostly MS's turf....

Elsewhere I don't know...

Better yet, it's all about games. Go to the store, write down all the games you would buy, and then pick the system that plays those games...

Buy a PS3, you'll thanks yourself later.
XBOX always lacked in the RPG market, and the 360 is showing no real signs of changing that trend.

PS3 is still in its infancy stages, but is showing loads of potential:
What is Sony doing to address concerns of gamers who are interested in owning a PS3 but haven't yet made the jump?

The first thing is to continue to educate people on the benefits of the technology and how it does things no other system can do. The second is to explain the value of all that cutting-edge technology: Cell is hands down the most powerful processor in any home entertainment system. Blu-ray gives developers a huge amount of space to create games. We also have free online gameplay, a hard drive in every box, Wi-Fi, and so on. This is a system that is just barely being tapped by developers at this point. There is so much upside potential that will continue to be uncovered years down the road, just like PS2.

And lastly, we have to deliver the content, which we are doing. We will have 15 PS3 exclusives this fiscal from our first party studios. Games like Ratchet & Clank Future; Tools of Destruction, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, and Heavenly Sword are looking amazing and are really showing what is possible when you harness the power in a PS3.

I loved having a 360 in asia (thailand, we had the japanese versions and bought japanese versions of games). Why? The games are a lot cheaper, particularly used than any others. Not as many folks playing them and not having the demand PS2 has makes it nice to have...got Fifa 2007 for US equivalent 25 bucks!

less glitches and bugs? :confused: What solar system are you gaming in? :p
360 has more games(about 12 dozen varieties of first person shooters), but again; is not showing a lot of RPG potential.
(at least not like the PS3 is)
And if you are interested in older games, PlayStation has the largest library of games period.
(although that could change once Nintendo releases a ton of cartridge classics to the Wii Store)

As for the bugs; well.....PS3 has no major issues whatsoever, whilst 360 has quite a few.

May 24, 2007, 04:46 PM
Since people are playing the price game... ;)
While the 360 is still cheaper, the PS3 is probably the cheapest here in Japan than anywhere else. I just picked up a new 20GB PS3 for 47000 (Under US$390) You can get a used one for about 40,000 (US$330) The 60GB is about 57000 (US$470) Compared to a Core 360 going for 28,800 (US$240). I think the PS3 has more features and is a better value. Although everyone says XBL is great (though more money to pay) and the 360 has more games. Just depends on what you want from a gaming system. Just thought I'd throw out the PS3 pricing for you to think about. :)

May 24, 2007, 04:57 PM
thats what I mean; out of the box PS3 has the largest B/C

Nintendo's library is larger, but not 100% available out of hte box, you kind of have to wait on them to realese them for download.
Microsoft has already said they are giving up on extensively fixing B/C.

One of my top games right now is Jet Moto(PS1 game downloaded via PSN), and I am anxious to see it in HD now. :cool:

Dude, since you are in Japan (im too) - Im concerned about if Im able to play online with my friends overseas on the PS3. Have you tried that ? So is it true that PS2 games arent region-free (games shops here in Akihabara tell me different stories)...Im thinking of getting a PS3 now because it has more features out of the box, they just released firmware 1.8 which allows streaming video from my mac and free online play - and the games will get better.

Sorry guys, I do like the X-box 360 (and I really wanna play gears of war) but after I looked at the costs - it adds alot to the game - eg: monthly fees/each maps

Correct me If Im wrong please

Coded-Dude
May 24, 2007, 06:29 PM
Some games will be region free, but as I understand it; in order to log into and play on a "localized" server, you must have two things.
An Account for that region, and the game from that region.

Example: Motorstorm - if you are in Japan/America(NTSC) you should still be able to import the PAL version of the game, log into your EU/PAL account, and play EU/PAL users.
Visa/Versa for each region as well; USA/EU can import JPN games and login with JPN account and play JPN servers.

Symantically speaking; it is regions free, but to prevent high ping, low framerate, etc.....the game for each region will only let you login to its respective localized server.
But like I said this will not be for all games, and should be less of an issue as PSN matures.

Might want to take that into consideration when buying online games.
Will you be playing solely with friends from another region, or both, or even all.
Kind of sucks having to buy the game more than once to play different regions though.....

I don't know anything about the online stuff. Sorry. I'd listen to Coded-Dude above for that stuff. I have yet to hook mine up to the internet.

The Akiba stores say that PS2 games are regionless? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but PS2 games ARE regioned. You can only play Japanese regioned (region 2) games on a Japanese console. PS3 games are region-free. I wish it was the actual console that was regionless though. :o Of course I could be wrong. I myself am a newbie for next gen game consoles, but I've done some research since I was just in the market for a console.

It all depends on what country you select as your PSN account. For example, on my PS3 I have a Japanese account set up so I can download Japan-only demos and videos, but if I was to play online with this account I would be playing with Japanese gamers, so in voice chat I'd be kind of lost.

On the other hand, I believe, that living in Japan you could set up an account with the US as the country and you could play online with US gamers. I think that you can see the motivation behind having US and Japanese gamers play on seperate servers (language barrier).

I loved CR. Yes, high def DVD does make a difference as long as you have a set that you can tell the difference on and the movie was mastered or remastered for HD.

I've got the XB360 HD DVD drive and a couple of movies I watched on DVD I know have on HD DVD and it is a better experience.

I've got the XB360 HD DVD drive and a couple of movies I watched on DVD I know have on HD DVD and it is a better experience.

Yeah I have both the HD-DVD addon and a PS3 - with a good share of BD and HD-DVD movies. Quality wise - there is nothing apart between the two formats really.

As for better than DVD. As a rule yes. But there are some suprising movies that HD really does not benefit. Take a CGI laden 'Sky Captain & The World of Tommorow'. Because of the post effects used on the film itself, there is no real difference between HD and SD versions.

Also a lot of films which were shot in low light, have a tendency to have their Film Grain realllllly stand out on HD and at times it does take away from the HD aesthetic.

Also back to CGI - a lot of movies on DVD you never really notice a 'ropey' cgi effect, but on HD - CGI effects can really stand out, and often look out of place and off colour. Again destroying the benefit of HD somewhat.

So it depends on the movie if it will look better in HD, and surprisingly you would think newer films would all look better than older films in HD, but this isn't necesserily the case either.

A bit of pot luck - but generally they are better than DVD.

Better enough to 'replace' DVD as the mainstream though ? That is the real question, until SD & HD are packaged on the same disc, and HD players of either format come down dramatically (sub $100) in price - I still dont think either format will threaten DVD for a long long time.

And by the time it does, there may be an easier faster way for us to access HD movies. A better picture / clearer sound, does not always win the hearts of consumers.. Price and easibility does.. you only have to look at MP3.

Yea, generally, comparing it to my DVD's, a few of what I have so far:

Tomb Raider, The Mummy - only slightly better
Pitch Black - Nicer blacks
Forbidden Planet - I actually made a side-by-side with the original release and the remaster is really nice.
Aeon Flux - much nicer
King Kong - Awesome!

I don't know about the Japanese game releases.

It depends on what kinds of games you like. Resistance is an excellent FPS. The Godfather is an ok sandbox game, I'd say just rent this one and wait for GTA4 if you like this kind of games. Tony Hawk's Project 8 is the best Tony Hawk game in a couple years.

It's ok. It varies from location to location.

The outside scenes are beautiful, crisp, sharp.

The interior locations just by the nature of how they are filmed (on err film) have a huge amount of film grain, and they dont look as good.

It's a good transfer - but certainly not a 'pinacle' release by any means.

District B13 on BD looks better..

I usually use Gdex, Messe and Game-shop in Akihabara to buy all my English language titles...Oh by way guys, Im going to get a 32" Sony Bravia J5000 - it was just released (I saw it in Nojima denki and I guy was playing RR on it soooo beautiful - the tv that is not the guy)
Haha! Sorry! When I first posted I didn't had my cell and intended to post the sight when I had me phone on my but forgot. Sorry. :o

Anyway, the sight is http://www.mbok.jp/ Oh, it's 300yen a month though.

My girlfriend also is Japanese and she buys and sells stuff all the time through it. So I browse the games and when there's something I want I tell her to bid on it. My Japanese is good enough to navigate through the sight and find what I'm looking for but when it comes to buying and all the shipping and payment stuff, I rely on my GF.

Whilst I wouldn't class myself as a gamer, having spoken to people who have had experience with both consoles, they almost universally rate the PS3 higher.
