Contents: PlayStation 3 vs Xbox 360

History and Development

The PS3 was first announced at the E3 gaming conference in 2005. The initial prototype revealed at the time had two HDMI ports, three Ethernet ports and six USB ports; these were cut to one HDMI port, one Ethernet port and four USB ports when the system was shown again at E3 in 2006. It was initially released with two hardware configurations: a 20 GB model at $499 and a 60 GB model at $599. Although originally given a worldwide release date in November 2006, its release in Europe was pushed back until March 2007.

Microsoft began to develop the Xbox 360 in 2003. They held an event for 400 developers to recruit support for the system, and hired Peter Moore, the former president of Sega, to work on the project. In August 2003, ATI joined the development team to produce the console’s graphic processing unit. The following month, IBM signed on to develop a triple-core CPU. The console was in development for two and a half years and was released in the United States and Canada on 22nd November 2005. It was released in Europe on December 2nd and Japan on December 10th. In the first year after release, it was launched in 36 countries.


The PS3 has been released in several different versions, with varying amounts of hard disk space. The 20 GB model, 40 GB model, 60 GB and 80 GB model are no longer sold. Buyers can now choose between a 160 GB system and a 320 GB system. There are no differences except for the amount of hard disk available.

The Xbox is currently available in four different configurations: the Xbox 360 4GB console, the Xbox 360 4GB with Kinect, the Xbox 360 250GB console, and the Xbox 360 250GB console with Kinect. There are no differences except for the amount of hard disk available and whether or not it includes the motion control system Kinect.


The 8th generation consoles, PS4 and Xbox One were released in 2013.


Processing Power

The Playstation 3’s CPU is a Sony, Toshiba, IBM-designed Cell microprocessor, with one 3.2 GHz PowerPC-based Power Processing Element and eight Synergistic Processing Elements, the last of which is disabled to improve chip yield. Only six of the seven are accessible to developers; the seventh is used by the operating system.

The Xbox 360 uses the triple-core IBM-designed Xenon as its CPU, and has three 3.2 GHz core processors.


The PS3 uses an NVIDIA RSX “Reality Synthesizer,” which outputs resolutions from 480i SD up to 1080i HD.

The Xbox 360 uses ATI Xenos for its graphics processing, which has 10 MG of eDRAM.


The PS3 has 256 mb of XDR DRAM main memory and 256 mb of GDDR3 video memory.

The Xbox360 has 512 mb of memory.


Accessories for the PS3 include wireless controllers, the Playstation Eye camera, headsets and a motion controller named Playstation Move.

Accessories for the Xbox 360 include a webcam, headsets for chatting, dance mats and Gamercize for exercise, and its motion-control system, Kinect.


The PS3 has a two-year failure rate of 10%.

The Xbox 360 has a two-year failure rate of 23.7%.


The PS3 connects to the Internet for free through the Playstation Network using the homeowner’s high speed internet account. Its features include PlayStation Plus, a subscription service that gives early access to game betas, demos and premium downloadable content, the PlayStation Store, where players can buy downloadable content, and online gaming with other players. PlayStation Plus costs $49.99 a year, $17.99 for three months, or $9.99 a month. The Network has over 90 million registered users.

The Xbox 360 uses Xbox Live, an online gaming service that is available both free and for a subscription. It allows users to join message boards and access the Marketplace to download purchased or promotional content. The subscription service also allows multiplayer gaming and costs $60 per year for an individual or $99.99 for a family of four (The family pack has been discontinued as of 3/6/2013, and all existing family memberships will be converted to individual Xbox Live Gold memberships). Users can also download classic games from the Xbox Live Arcade. Xbox Live has over 40 million users, and players can connect using their high speed cable or DSL internet connection.



Bestselling games for the PS3 include Grand Turismo 5 (7.43 million copies), God of War III (5.2 million), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (4.8 million), Uncharted 3 (3.8 million), Uncharted 2 (3.8 million), MotorStorm (3.31 million), Call of Duty: Black Ops (3.27 units), Metal Gear Solid 4 (3 million) and LittleBigPlanet (3 million), Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas

Bestselling games for the Xbox 360 include Kinect Adventures (18 million copies), Call of Duty: Black Ops (12 million), Halo 3 (8.10 million), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (7.48 million), Gears of War (5 million), Gears of War 2 (5 million), Halo: Reach (5 million), Grand Theft Auto IV (4.35 million) and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (4.22 million).


Metal Gear Solid 4, InFamous 1&2, God of War 3, LittleBigPlanet and Uncharted 2 are some of the top games exclusively available on PS3. Gears of War 3, Halo Combat and Forza Motorsport 4 are some of the top games exclusively available on Xbox 360.

Recent Introductions

The new games on Xbox 360 are Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4. Xbox 360 also has Minecraft.

Units Sold

In January, 2013, IDC reported that Sony had overtaken Microsoft in terms of the total units sold.

The Japanese company has now sold about 77 million PS3 consoles worldwide, versus 76 million Xbox 360 consoles sold by Microsoft. The PS3 has pulled ahead despite being on the market for a shorter time - it went on sale in late 2006, about a year after the Xbox 360.

with the amount of money you have to spend on xbox live alone, until your xbox breaks from red ring and E-74, you could just buy a brand new PS3! I've owned both systems and the only thing I liked about the 360 was Halo other than that its just a fire to throw money at!

I have both. And exclusives are even some good some bad. Personally I prefer xbox. Due to the fact that the ps3 takes soooo long to download and worst of all install games.
Other than that graphically there is not enough difference. If someone wants graphics buy a pc.
A true gamer buys all. Fan boys can suck me.

December 4, 2013, 11:00pm

Ok, so it seems that a lot of people are trying to prove that their system is better with no real reason. Personally, I prefer PS3, just because of the fact that mine came with an HDMI cable and my Xbox didnt, so it's easier to play. But that's the thing, it's a personal opinion.

When you compare the specs, the PS3 is superior in a lot of the details. Free Internet is also a good thing.

Also, I really can't see why Xbox Live is more popular than the PS network, Im on a family account with my uncle's email address registered, so today I got a message telling me that the terms and conditions had changed, I then found that I needed his password. I couldn't access anything, only disc games because I couldn't log in. We also struggled to set it up in the first place as I'd already used my email for my local account, something which really shouldn't be required. Whereas PS network has been find, I've even stayed logged in since we set up my account a while ago :/

Xbox 360 has better exclusives like halo and gears of war and better online but you have to pay a lot for it. you can go ahead and buy a ps3 if you want to be a cheep batard. actually i do like ressistance and demon souls I guess they both have great exclusive by the way killzone suck so does fable. it really depends do you want free online or better online.

— 107.✗.✗.220

May 15, 2013, 5:52am

My apologies. Let me be specific. The ps3 does not have 7 cores. It has 'SPE's which are more like processors. Cores indicate the ability to run any task for any application. Whereas an SPE can only do the specific task it was created for. 2 cores can split the workload and get it done. 2 SPEs cannot split a workload, instead they are like 2 separate processors being cogs in a larger mechanical structure.

Really the two consoles are equal, both have their strengths and weaknesses, however I personally believe that the Xbox 360 is a better console, and here is why.
1. The console - I have see in many posts that one of the reasons why a PS3 could be better than a Xbox 360 is because of blue ray. However after playing many games on both consoles, I did not see any difference in graphics. Sure there were some games that looked HD on the PS3, but that was the same with the Xbox. Unless people are forgetting that there is a HD option on the Xbox, I don't understand why people think that Blue Ray makes the detail of PS3 games better than those of the Xbox. Then there is also the fact of PS3's easily breaking. I have heard many times from people that Xbox's break a lot. THIS IS NOT TRUE! I have never in my life known someone who has broken their Xbox. I have had my Xbox for about 5 years now, and in that time it has unfortunately been kicked around, dropped, stepped on and it still works perfectly fine. However, I know of 7 different people who have broken their PS3 within 2 years. Now you're probably thinking that this is only because these people don't look after them properly or have siblings that broke it, but one of these people is a nerd (actual nerd), only child who actually cleans his game disks after he uses them.
2. The controller - On many occasions I have came across people who believe that because the Xbox controller is larger than a PS3's, it hurts your hand. It doesn't, the Xbox controller was specifically designed for the comfort and and accessibility of a gamer's hand. The PS3's controller however is small which sometimes leads to discomfort and is harder to use. Also if you think that a Xbox controller's buttons tend to stick, then you are probably getting stuff jammed in them.
3. Internet - Yes the PSN is free, yes Xbox live costs money, I myself believe that Xbox live should be free, but I also believe that Xbox live is better than PSN. This is the truth, and if you don't agree and think that Microsoft is filled with Money hoarders than read this; .
4. The games - Both consoles have pretty good games, PS3 has games such as Uncharted, God of War and little big planet. The Xbox has games like Halo (big fan), Gears of War, and crack down. If you are wondering why I didn't put ratchet and clank down for PS3 it's because after Gladiator the series just went downfall. These are the best selling games and numbers of PS3; As of March 31, 2012-Grand Tourism 5 (7.43m), God of War III (5.2m), Call of Duty:Modern Warfare (4.8m), Uncharted 3 (3.8m), Uncharted 2 (3.8m), MotorStorm (3.31m), Call of Duty: Black Ops (3.27 units), Metal Gear Solid 4 (3m) and LittleBigPlanet(3m) as oppose to the Xbox 360: As of April 19th 2012-Kinect Adventures(18m), Call of Duty: Black Ops(12m), Halo 3(8.10m), Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 2(7.48m), Gears of War(5m), Gears of War 2(5m), Halo:Reach(5m), Grand Theft Auto IV(4.35m) and Call of Duty 4:Modern Warfare(4.22m). With this you can kind of see how a lot of PS3 users aren't that much of gamers. Also the Kinnect was much better than the PS3's move.
The reason why there would be more PS3 users posting on the internet is because Xbox users are intelligent enough to not get involved in a pointless and never ending debate. Also PS3 players really suck.

I would like to say that I have both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. While I do prefer my Xbox I don't think it is fair to compare them. Xbox was made almost a year earlier so of course PS3 is going to have better specs. I have never had a problem with my Xbox but I have had 2 of my PlayStation's get the yellow light of death and stop working. Arguing about it doesn't change peoples minds. Just let people play what they want to play.

I've tried both. They're even for the most part. but as idgaf about halo, or any of the xbox 360 exclusives really. My ps3 just gets used more.

Xbox 360: Better price, more of your friends probably have one.
Ps3: Free internet multiplayer, plays blu rays.

Use what you like, and stop wasting your life f*cking arguing about which is better.

I do enjoy both i wish everyone else would but i do kind of hate that microsoft forces you member ship just to use netflix. Your already paying 8 bucks a month. Sony has it's free multiplayer and for some odd reason less little kids. Microsoft has it's benefits of keeping a slightly better gaming community (kind of) people still get away with being cheaters and using modded xbox's and modded controllers more often than what they should of. Sony and Microsoft have provided me equal about of service don't know much about others though. Play station having playstation Plus was an upside for me = discounts on quite a bit of things. Microsoft has it's random 50% off sales. (for some games). Point being both have flaws and benefits. Both are trying to make it better plus have you noticed play station had youtube and internet explorer before Microsoft did? Both of them are behind one another. Sony is behind on service xbox is behind on apps and such. Don't know if this calms it down but can this blood shed end a little bit faster and be open if you're a true gamer?

April 2, 2013, 9:38am

the beauty of this argument is it will never go away, people will have their theories as to wich is / was better. but its really a matter of preference, which system is the best for you. i have owned both systems at one time, got rid of the ps3 and stuck with the xbox. i couldnt really afford to keep both, because i couldnt justify buying games for both systems. just recently, within the last month, i packed up my xbox and all of its belongings i had for it and traded it in towards a 320 gig ps3.
best move i made after seeing some graphical differences between the two systems, my answer to all of this is they are both great systems. but my needs were met thru sonys machine. for me sony has the best exclusives, especially mlb the show, hands down the greatest baseball game ever made for any system.
the cross platform games in the beginning microsoft edged sony, but as the years went by the ports to the ps3 were starting to look identical to the xbox version.
as far as the online, their both fine, i do like that i dont have to pay anymore, but when i got the ps3 alot of my friends kept telling me about sonys online lag because its a free site. well im happy to report that, i have had no online issues with my ps3.
the xbox is tapped out, we all know what it can do, on the other hand, the ps3, there was so much more that could have been done with it, and sony messed that up a little because of this fanboy war.
but in closing, i dont think ps4 will mess up so much, that will be the new king after the next gen games arrive.............

PS2 system data only allows for INSTALLED PS2 games to play. Namely those downloaded from the PSN. Without certain older models, PS2 games cannot be played at all on a PS3. If you have one, to the best of my knowledge, only certain games can be played, similar to the Xbox 360. I love my PS2 and still play it. Don't have a PS3, with that being one of the reasons (half of the fun of having a PS2 is playing my PS1 games.) I'm glad I can play a majority of my original Xbox games on my 360.

right where to start first for $420 you can get a limited edition star wars Xbox 360 S console with kinect and star wars game with a 320GB HDD not 250GB as you state, secondly Gears of War which is an xbox exclusive game won more GotY awards than halo 3, next time someone posts something like this make sure they prefer Wii that way we can gaurantee its fair not like the one who posted this who obviously likes PS3

First of all I should say I own a PS3
Hardware wise, the PS3 is easily the best. Easily. For games the only Xbox exclusive i would've wanted was gears of war. Then i found out it's on PC, so now i has nothing. PS3 has God Of War which is phenomenal, inFamous and Little Big Planet.
PS3 has more space as standard.
PS3 has no online subscription fees AT ALL. To all those saying that Xbox only has fees for gold and you can use it restricted, PS3 HAS NO FEES AT ALL EVER DONE FINISHED THANKS BYE.
PS3 has BluRay, a far more advanced feature that Xbox's feeble DVD drive.
PS3 has PS Move to combat Xbox's Kinect. This is the only area I have to concede the Xbox has won. While using the Move is a joy, Xbox's motion detect system takes the cake here.

PS3 wins. Easy.

Some of your specifications are inaccurate and thus misleading.

It really does come down to this being a matter of opinion. Graphics are nearly identical in most games. Some will prefer the Xbox, others the PS3. Both have pros and cons. I own both, and my xbox has not been turned on in over 3 months. I think the 360 hands down the motion (GIMMICK) category with the Kinect. It was much more of a enjoyable experience when compared to the PS move. Also the Xbox live community seems much larger than the PSN community. And thats where it ends for me with the 360. One the other hand my PS3 is used everyday, weither it be for gaming or entertainment (Music, Netflix, Hulu, Blu-ray, and a really good youtube app). I am absolutely in love with Playstation plus. I recently had to upgrade my hdd to 320GB because I had TOO MANY FREE GAMES that come with the instant game collection that you get with PS plus. Yes, some are cheap indie games, while others are AAA titles. (LBP2, Demon Souls, Ratchet and Clank), not to mention some of the best games on the PS Vita. For me, the PS3 does everything that I want out of current-gen consoles. P.S. I also appreciate not having stupid ads in the XMB, c'mon microsoft, what's up with the dashboard these days?

Retard Xbox does have free and subscription based online. Silver and gold. Gold you pay for. Silver is free. Dumbass get your facts straight before you comment.

You said that Xbox has free online play, not true. You must buy Gold subscription to play online.
