which is better, xbox games or Ps3 games????

There are a ton of great games for the Xbox 360, but occasionally the PS3 will come out with games that dont come out on the Xbox. Even though I have both systems this is the one thing that really pisses me off about the gaming world. It pisses me off because some of the good multyplayer games come out only on the Ps3, or some of the really good single player games only come out for the Xbox. Games like Socom Navy Seals would be more fun on Xbox Live instead of the Playstation Network.

In my opinion games like Socom would be so much better on the Xbox, because all of my friends dont have a PS3. That is why I get multyplayer games for the Xbox and single player games for the Playstation. Since the PS3 has better graphics due to the fact that it can be hooked up to a tv via HDMI cable (which allows my system to have high definition sound and picture) i like having games like Assassins Creed and Fallout on the pS3. it just seems that multyplayer games drop the graphics a bit to add more room for online play. thats not true in some cases but in most games there are a few glitches in the graphics. Although the new Xbox systems can use a HDMI cable, i dont think that the quality is  the same, but ill talk about that in another blog.

One the most amazing games i have played in awhile is Heavy Rain which is only for the PS3. in this title you take control of four separate people, 2 detectives, a photographer and a killer. your job as the detectives, of course, is to track down the killer and bring him to justice, and the other two people are tied into the story as you progress in the game.

 I know this blog is suppose to be about Xbox games only so here it is. Heavy Rain is made by the same developers who once made a similar game for the Xbox several years ago called Indigo Prophecies. both games have a similar storyline where 2 detectives search for a killer, and as the killer you try to prove you innocence. Since this game did come out on the original Xbox, the graphics are a bit sketchy and the controls are not as smooth as they should be. other than that overall it is still worth getting based on the story and creativity of the game itself. which brings me to wonder if the game developers chose the PS3 to fix some of the bugs they had the first time around. Visually this game is fantastic, as you can see from the picture on the right. the graphics are that good throughout the whole game. the best part of all is that the controls are very  smooth, even in the fighting scenes.


  1. I totally agree with you once again that the way games are coming out is ridiculous. I’m tired of wanting to play certain game for the ps3, that apparently were only made for the Xbox 360. The graphics are great for just about every ps3 game that I have played. It just makes me mad how most of the multiplayer games that I want to play seem to only be for the Xbox. Some sequels that have been made to continue a game have gone from a multiplayer to a single player, which is so stupid an annoying.

  2. I don't really know a lot about Xbox or the ps3, but have played the Xbox a little bit with my boyfriend. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is one of my favorites to play online. My boyfriend is really good at it he likes to play hardcore team deathmatch, hardcore search and destroy, and free for all. He went 30 and 0 three times in a row on free for all today. Although I will say that xbox has much better graphics the the wii.

  3. the xbox ps3 fight. im on the ps3 and im happy that finally we are starting to get some "good" games. killzone 2 and uncharted 2 were just the start but with God of War 3 in march im actually happy were getting things. but i don't like how cut and dry some games are to systems.

  4. Indeed both systems have something that is favored over the other. Although I am familiar with the PS3, as an XBOX person I don't think I can decide which is better as I am too one-sided. I didn't start realizing the major difference in game distribution until I started getting into the RP type stuff. I totally agree it suks! This "war" lol will probably continue, and who knows? Maybe a consensus can come to us about which is better overtime.

  5. Chris--

    Wow. Those graphics are indeed just nuts.

    I've never has an Xbox, but I also never updated my Ps2. Right now for me it's Wii for the foreseeable future. I do agree that exclusive format deals are pretty much the pits.

    I really like the look of this post, Chris. Things are really humming here.
