This has been the most heated debate between gamers today, whether Xbox 360 is better than PS3 or vice-versa. These two gaming platforms are the best present today in the gaming world. They are unbeatable but the question arises about which one is the best between both of them.

 

Xbox 360 vs PS3 Hardware

Since PS3 arrived in the market to overpower XBOX360, gamers have been arguing on the merits and demerits of both gaming consoles. Lets compare the hardware as well as gaming specifications of both platforms and at the end, only one will emerge as the winner.

HARDWARE:

Now, here we can see that chip in both processor runs at  same Ghz, the difference is in the brand name but the thing is that PS3 single 7 threaded cores are able to defeat dual 3 cores of XBOX 360 in performance. Do not get mislead by the RAM of XBOX because it’s shared by both system RAM and video RAM and PS3 RAM is faster than XBOX running at 3.2ghz in comparison to 700 MHZ of XBOX. So that makes the PS3 the champion of this section.

GRAPHICS:

Both the platform have custom designed graphic cards but the XBOX has a slight edge over the PS3 in the graphics area because of the additional 10 MB EDRAM available which enhances it’s performance. So the winner of this section is XBOX360.

 

STORAGE:

XBOX 360 comes with only 250 GB hard drive in comparison to what PS3 offers, 160 GB hard drive and also 320 GB hard drive in higher model. Though HDD of both runs at same speed but the main advantage with PS3 is that it has 2.5″ SATA notebook hard drives. Users can upgrade their hard drives with high capacities. But XBOX 360 supports only proprietary HDD model hard drives, so the winner is PS3.

So the edge goes to PS3 in the processors performance and storage but XBOX beats PS3 in the Graphics so it has a great advantage over PS3 because most users go for well defined graphics quality.

Do let me know your opinion on this heated topic on Xbox 360 vs PS3 hardware.

  2. Amit Bhardwaj says:

    i think XBOX 360 is better……

  3. abhishek says:

    guys guys its obvious that 360 is better .
    but still they both re the best with few advantages and ofcourse disadvantages.

    first thing xbox 360 got more game titles then ps3.

    xbox looks cooler with awesome controllers and ps3’s controllers re really not so good.

    but ps3 has slighty just slighty better graphics which isnt a big issue

    also if u wana play online u must have a genuine console with ofcourse genuine game but u also have to pay some extra bucks for playing online on xbox 360 and on ps3 its free to play online.

    in my and everyone else opinion 360 is better but it isnt bad to have both of them as ps3 have a little very best games avalable on it.

  4. Abhishek says:

    Higher model of XBOX 360 do have HDMI port

    If it’s just a single player go with the cheaper one.. They’re pretty much exactly the same! Never listen to anyone who thinks one version of the game is better than the other, there are only ever very very minor differences that only weird people can notice.. Unless the Xbox version of it requires more than one disc which has happened before, then get it on the PS3..

  6. If we talking about the hardware XBOX 360 is better.If we taking Graphics into consideration PS3 is better Again if we looking over Storage comparison,both are good.I think still XBOX 360 attaract me more than PS3.

  7. MME says:

    Wow, very good differences between XBOX 360 Or PS3, i think XBOX 360 is better than PS3.

  8. Rochelle says:

    Its like your blog read my mind- I’ve been looking for this all day. I’m trying to make my mind up weather or not to get an xbox or ps3. The graphics sure do look better on the xbox, but I hear the ps3 is so much better. I still can’t make up my mind. Thanks for this post. Very helpful- Rochelle. 🙂

    Dude, you forgot one important use of PS3. Its the best Blu-ray player capable of playing 1080p videos in 3D. To buy one separately costs almost 25k. So if you have a 3D TV then buy PS3. Don’t go for XBOX 360!

  10. kids gifts says:

    I want to know the games only for Xbox 360 and the games for ps3 only. Please make sure your answers are right. I want to know which system has more games. Only exclusive games for ps3 and xbox 360 not games that can be played on both.

  11. If it’s just a single player go with the cheaper one.. They’re pretty much exactly the same! Never listen to anyone who thinks one version of the game is better than the other, there are only ever very very minor differences that only weird people can notice..

  12. Yeah playstation 2 games do function on the ps3. ALthough the 60 gigabyte model has more compatible games, if he got the 40 or the 80 gigabyte ps3, there are still many many games he can play from the playstation 2, but some might not work.

    I’m saying wait for the next gen consoles. They will beat these two like a brick on a cake.

    I’ll leave the Xbox part out, because we all know that works fine. The Kinect device is an impressive piece of technology that works as advertised, tracking you and putting you “in the game.” Jump and your character jumps. The only problem I had with it was a dealbreaker though. It requires significantly more space than the minimum. While Microsoft says it will work with…
