Three things PS3 fans should envy about 360


Retro Content

While PS3 users are happy to get the occasional PS1 title repackaged in downloadable format, the 360 doesn’t merely get direct ports, but genuinely enhanced versions of classic fan favorites: Doom, Marathon, Prince of Persia, Street Fighter, and now even Rez! And all of these game have upgraded textures and graphics, improved frame rates, a variety of multiplayer options, etc.

PS3 users do get the occasional retro title with enhancements (Super Puzzle Fighter, Lemmings, or MK2), but the 360 seems to get more retro titles, a better selection of them, and much more substantial enhancements.

I’m definitely envious of this. I would love to see more of this type of quality, enhanced remakes.

Hobbyist Development

Microsoft provides attractive hobbyist oriented XNA dev kits with options for 360 distribution. I must mention two counter points to this:

  1. User created content, which is coming to both systems, will be much more relevant in the console world than from-the-ground-up game development support.
  2. There is already a dream hobbyist system, and it’s not a console and probably won’t ever be. I’m talking about the general purpose home PC. Independent and hobbyist developed games are flourishing on the PC and enjoying great success. The success and variety in these efforts is amazing. Check out here, here, and here.

However, despite these two counter points, I’m still genuinely envious of the power and accessibility of Microsoft’s XNA tools and I wish the PS3 had something similar.

(BTW, PS3 Linux is great, but it’s just a limited PC rather than a new tool for hobbyist developers)

Third Party Relations

The 360 seems to get many third party titles much earlier than the PS3. This includes traditionally PlayStation franchises such as Ace Combat and Katamari, which are rumored to come out for the PS3 after a 360 exclusivity period. Even titles such as GRAW 2, which the devs claim was designed from the very beginning to provide full PS3 support, still come out a solid five months earlier on the 360.

And for GTA fanatics such as myself, those upcoming exclusive episodes sound very tempting.

UPDATE: This was supposed to be a genuine and good spirited acknowledgment of the strong points of the competition that would ease tensions and restore a constructive enjoyable discussion forum. This isn’t supposed to kick off a second wave of console war arguments. There are a ton of PS3 advantages that I will not mention those for now.

    The way it sounds, They may have to cut the game down so it can fit on DVD9 then M$ payed for the cut out data to be D/L on XBL (GTA4)

  2. #2 by Mutsch on September 30th, 2007

    Well, I couldn’t care less.

    1. I have a retro library called my PS2 and PSone games. Why would I buy those again.
    2. The PS3 is all about the Cell and Linux supports that just perfectly. 99.9% of gamers don’t care anyway.
    3. There are just a few 3rd party games I would envy the 360 for at the moment. This is going to change anyway as more and more developers become familiar with the hardware

    The only thing I kind of envy the 360 at the moment are the more advanced online features like cross talk, etc.

  3. #3 by Mike on September 30th, 2007

    One thing that Sony has to change is the constant negative stigma that has surrounded PS3 since they announced that $599 SKU last May. Despite catastrophic hardware failure rates, a lack of cohesion in storage and accessory pricing, and a software library that still caters very much to the shooter crowd, Xbox 360 is seen in a more positive light because it costs less and it doesn’t have every big title for it being delayed month after month (we already know MGS4 and GTA4 aren’t coming out this year, is GT5 prologue even going to make it out in the U.S.?)

    They’re also doing a better job of using established, recognizable franchises to sell the system. The PS3’s price combined with new franchises that aren’t immediately recognizable to casual gamers is hurting it big time. Hopefully Sony yields to logic and gets a $399.99 SKU out and starts getting more recognizable franchises out on PS3 rather than on PS2 and PSP (or at the very least, have a PS3 version of those games).

    At this point it almost seems too late in the U.S., they’ll probably have a better chance in Europe where people don’t seem to be as obsessed with first person shooters.

    while you have only listed 3 reasons to be envious of the 360 their is alot more that the ps3 has to offer
    1. free online network
    2. blu ray player
    3. released with more memory
    4. rechargeable controllers
    5. more processors
    6. easy media access
    7. full internet access
    8. 25% of graphics card equal to 90% of xbox 360
    9. soon to have dual shock 3
    10. FUTURE PROOF !!!

  5. #5 by Box Factory on September 30th, 2007

    Future proof my arse.

    It’ll all be over after Christmas.

  6. #6 by Sporty on September 30th, 2007 [ 95 Points ]

    This is kinda why I hate even talking about 360 on this place. We get complete tools like Box Factory that do nothing but troll since he’s too poor to buy a PS3. Probably doesn’t even own a 360. Just bashes PS3 since his mom wont buy him one since it’s out of their budget range.

    Kinda pointless really job he has really. Guess Box Factory’s sister wont put out this month so it’s bash PS3 on a PS3 sight for him.

  7. #7 by PS3&360Neutral on September 30th, 2007

    WTF WOLF!!! Those arent reasons to be envious about shit. Here we go:

    1. u said dual shock, the 360 controller already vibrates
    2. 360 been had a rechargeable controller
    3. nothing on the ps3 even looks close to gears of war
    4. u say last halo, i say last metal gear
    5. so u think god of war 3, im thinkin gears of war 2
    6. 360 is cheaper, much cheaper
    7. u can only see the greatness of the blue ray if ur tv supports 1080p, but my sources tells me that over 70% of gamers still play on standard tvs, which makes blue ray completely useless, so i dont want to hear anything about blue ray
    8. halo 3 kicks ass
    9. 360 is gettin what was once exclusives on other systems (resident evil 5, devil may cry 4, wwe smackdown, gta 4, etc.,)
    10. killzone 2? halo killer? didnt they say that about killzone 1? and wat happened? halo 2 MURDERED IT TEN FOLD. Halo 3 will do the same.
    11. Lair and Heavenly Sword was supposed to be the killer app for the ps3 and failed miserably
    12. because of the ps3, all the good multiplatform games are being pushed back
    13. u cant tell me gears of war isnt the best looking game ever (i know, same as number 3) to die for in HD
    14. mass effect will (mock my words) be the suprise hit of the year
    15. the only thing i will give to u is free online, but $50 a year for the 360 isnt shit, come on
    16. ps3 is crazy expensive, so how can anyone complain about payin $50 a year for the 360s online
    17. 360 Elite is released with 120g hard drive and u can buy it separately and cheaper on ebay so WTF!
    18. quite frankly 2007 belongs to the 360, its clearly the way to go
    19. Internet!! i cant even believe u said that, do we all not own a computer? WTF!

  8. #8 by Tiltmfc on September 30th, 2007

    1. free online network – no way near as good to xbox live, but at least its free.

    2. blu ray player – Ok, that is kind of cool, alot of ppl say but i dont want one, i still think it is nice to have one on the ps3.

    3. released with more memory – I only have the small HDD for my 360 and I am no way near filling it up. But, if you need the space then youre right. My bro downloads movies like crazy so he needs a big HDD, i dont.

    4. rechargeable controllers, We have the plug and charge kit… you have a rechargeable battery but what ever.

    5. more processors – Really , This is not that good of a point.

    6. easy media access – What is so hard about it on the 360, press guide, chose folder press play.. or plug ipod in press play.. hell you can even use the Remote control you dont even have to hit guide all you have to do is press play.

    7. full internet access – Ok kinda neat but I would rather be on my pc. the wii has it and I only use it to check movie times.

    8. 25% of graphics card equal to 90% of xbox 360 – Did you make this up, show proof.. might be true but I have never seen this anywhere.

    9. soon to have dual shock 3 – Shouldn’t have this been thier from launch….
    They say it couldnt be done, now all of a sudden it can be…
    no matter, good for you all.

    10. FUTURE PROOF ! What is the future proof that is like saying now what?

    Well I think ps3 is a good system just needs something that it is missing.
    maybe games, maybe .. i dont know.. The xbox does break down…
    but at least they fix them.. when 3 of my ps2 and 2 psx’s broke sony didnt do a damn thing.

    And you cant say that you have the same ps2 that you have always had, at one time or another

  9. #9 by Lucas on September 30th, 2007

    “8. 25% of graphics card equal to 90% of xbox 360″
    ive read in atleast 10 different places the 360’s video card is better and not just by a little. please post a link to anyone else saying this other then you please.
    ps3 is great but right now xbox360 is better
    2 years from now might be other way around

  10. #10 by Sporty on September 30th, 2007 [ 95 Points ]

    Ironic, you try to do a positive 360 thread and you get Xbox idiots coming to bash the PS3.

    Would help if they weren’t talking out of their ass with stupid comments like ‘more memory’ when they both have the same and other dumb things to build up their love.

    Can alway tell a complete fanboy when they use phrases like “We have the plug and charge kit… you have a rechargeable battery”

    First, using ‘We’ and ‘you’ , guess that’s admitting your a silly little soldier to fight Microsoft’s cause. The Us verse them mentality is what I hate about fanboys more then anything. Kinda nice having the choice to play any game released. I don’t have to sink as low as you guys. Having a mind of your own is good. Might want to try it sometime. And second. complain about the PS3 price then forget all the extras you have to pay for on the 360. Nickels and dimes add up over time.

    Too bad 90% of your lists are opinion and completely uneducated ones at that.

  11. #11 by Lucas on September 30th, 2007

    sporty the “more memory” comment was for hdd space not ram i believe. also when you say things like “silly little soldier…” makes you sounds like a sony fanboy. every fanboy sounds the same and you sound just like one for sony. i love my 360 got it launch and still works great. im saving for a ps3 but i wont need one for a year or so cause they dont have any good games right now. please dont call someone a fanboy then be one yourself.

  12. #12 by Mr.mister on September 30th, 2007

    Oh someone got pwnm

  13. #13 by Sporty on September 30th, 2007 [ 95 Points ]

    If you actually read my post you would see I was referring to Tiltmfc’s we and you comments. As in he’s taking sides and speaking for 360.

    When someone states we and you when talking consoles then to me they are self appointed silly little soldiers in this ‘war’. If that offends you that I pointed that out then whatever.

    Hard drive is storage, Ram is memory, but rereading his post I can see he’s talking about hard drive space.

    I personally don’t care if you call me a fanboy. At least I own all three systems and don’t have to make excuses as to why one sucks to justify not having it, yet come to a fan site and bash that system.

    That’s what annoys me. Is the people that clearly made a username just today to bash one system and stick up for their favorite. If you have to do that then you life must be sad. Get a job and buy them, if you really didn’t want one you would troll a fan site to bash it.

  14. #14 by Sporty on September 30th, 2007 [ 95 Points ]

    And one more thing.

    Point out were I bashed the 360 in this thread…… I’m waiting.

    Calling a fanboy when I pointed out how completely retarded some of the negative PS3 comments comes from when I’m not the one pulling facts like GPU power out of my ass to justify my opinion.

    Sorry if it bothers you that I’m not sugar-coated trolling the PS3 like half the comments on this thread. Re-read your own posts before you call someone a fanboy.

  15. #15 by Segitz on September 30th, 2007 [ 1470 Points ]

    Oh calm down people…

    every console has its pros and cons, yes also the 360 has bad points…

    What I like about the 360 is, that their demos get released sooner often (PES).

    The price is also nicer, but you also get less (i.e. BD support, but that is up to the consument to decide if he wants it… I love BD movies, or WiFi which is mandatory for many people and costs 100 USD on the 360).

    Some exclusive games are really good (I am no fps gamer so the 360 is less interesting for me). Bioshock, Halo 3… Ok, Forza would interest me, but I get GT soon^^

    The Windows integration is better with uPnP etc. BUT Sony is closing in fast with DLNA.

    Everybody says Live is sooo good… Tbh, Live is worse than PSN. First you have to pay for it, and second, often games are really laggy etc. (I mean, you PAY for it, yet you can mostly only game P2P??!?).

    The dashboard is where most interesting things lie. Cross game chats and invites etc. are really nice features. I have used the dashboard a little bit (keep in mind I don’t have a 360) and I find it a bit cumbersome. It is not very intuitive (i.e. you need to learn it) and not nice (ok, I have no idea how customizable it is).

    What I like about the PS3

    It is VERY silent, mine very seldomly kicks its fans into higher gear. (360 is supposed to be pretty noisy)

    It has a webbrowser that supports youtube and google video (very nice for short surfing brakes albeit I usually don’t use it much)

    The controller has a built in battery that has a pretty good uptime and can be reloaded on any USB loading device

    It has some very good games to come (and already released, i.e. Motorstorm), like MGS4 or FFXII or GT5

    Linux… I am a linux nut and so, the possibility to use it on my console is VERY cool :D (combined with a VDR streamserver I can already watch tv on it :P)

    PS1/PS2 backwards compatibility… I have a “limited bc” PAL PS3… ALL of my PS2 games run FLAWLESSLY on it… Ok, I don’t have very many left but all run great.

    Swappable HDD… I know most people don’t even remotely know how to do it, but this ability lets us upgrade HDDs for very little money! (or even 3.5” HDDs 500GB for ~100€)

    PQ… The upscaling and deinterlacing of the PS3 in DVD mode are SUPERB (the 360s are … well awful from what I read at AVSforums)

    Folding at Home… This gives me the opportunity, when I don’t use my console, to help Stanford finding a cure for cancer!

    there’s much stuff I forgot, but I think you know what I mean!

  16. #16 by Dartmerc on September 30th, 2007

    God, I just tried to actually read this post and it’s comments, and I even bother to read past the first xbox2 fanboy comment.
    It just makes the xbox2 community look bad, and from the comments I see, I doubt any xbox2 owner could tell the different between SD and HD and would make use of a dev kit.
    I dunno, maybe i’m looking at it in the wrong light, and looking at the post i’m about to submit i’m probably contributing to the problem.
    It just annoys me when people plain bash rather then post anything to support their comment. Having said that, there were some valid points made.

    For my two cents, the way I see it, is Sony doesn’t fork out *huge* amounts to money to buy 3rd parties out, or pay to have games remade on their system, they are betting on victory in this generation, and next generation, developers will have learnt and wont touch microsoft or whoever else no matter how much money is thrown at them. If Sony gives in and starts throwing around millions of dollars, it doesnt matter who wins this generation, there is no point of difference to influence the next.

  17. #17 by tking on September 30th, 2007

    okay everybody knows there about the same thing
    BUT im not gonna waste 100 more bucks just for a diffrance of a bluray.

  18. #18 by Lucas on September 30th, 2007

    sporty i was never offended by anything you said. the guy used the words us and we and them and you because just like everything people have to make catagories for people. there are the nerds the preps the emo’s the goths the ps3’s and the xbox’s. its human nature to group things makes it easier to make friends and whatnots. and what you say is fine but i think you were being a little harsh on the guy who just likes his 360 and you assumed he never played ps3 and is some poor little kid. whats wrong with being poor? is it bad to not be rich? should i say you are obviously rich cause you own all 3 so you more then likely have blood on your or your familys hands because thats how everyone got rich? maybe your just too stuck up to let someone have an opionion and not be offended by someone who might be poor and just cant afford a ps3 and wii and 360 so he sticks up for what he does have. nothing wrong with this. get over yourself sporty. having money doesnt make you better then anyone if anything its makes you worse.

  19. #19 by Sporty on September 30th, 2007 [ 95 Points ]

    Whatever man. Your assuming pretty much everything you say and tell me to get over myself.

    I hate retarded fanboys that have to bash a console since their lives are too worthless to do anything else but troll a PS3 fansite. I come here for news and I know the people. If it bothers you that I’m not one of you then get over yourself.

    I never said I was rich. But 90% of the people that complain about the PS3 always comes down to the price. If it bothers you that I don’t need to pimp myself out or say completely retarded things to bash a console I don’t have then I’m sorry you feel that way. Guess $500 isn’t a years pay for me. Maybe one day collecting cans will pay for that for you.

    Only people I bashed in this entire thread were the ones bashing a console, you seem to take offense to that. Sorry you don’t have thicker skin. I’m not on a high horse, Just don’t have patience for stupid fanboys that only troll a system when 9 times out of 10 they don’t own either. Maybe one day you will see that.

    I see enough bashing from gaming sites to not want to tolerate it on a fansite. Enough of them come here constanly and other forums its always the same thing. Either 360 or PS3 bashing. Would be nice to have a place to only talk about the games and news but trolls ruin it, and you are their defender

    Next time try not jumping to conclusions. Owning multiple game systems doesn’t make you rich. It’s not like their cars. I don’t have a problem with people that are saving up for one. That’s what I did, Wii was impulse though.

    And yes, Something is wrong with sticking up for what you do have when your way of sticking up for it is a pre-emptive bash on why something else is crap.

    If more people were mature we wouldn’t have these flame wars. Kinda sad so many threads come down to immature 10 year olds calling one system crap and if anyone gets tired of if you have to stand up for the trolls.

    I was just annoyed with the fanboy trolls bashing. I didn’t even pick a side, It seems to have offended you though, since you can’t stop sticking up for retarded people that hate PS3 on this site.

  20. #20 by Dartmerc on September 30th, 2007

    Yeah, everyone to their own really applies to consoles.
    I’ve said it before, last gen was won by PS2 and not xbox, now i’m not trying to flame, it’s an accepted fact, but my point is that people who bought an xbox had fun playing it.
    It doesn’t matter that sales difference was so great between PS2 and xbox, people will buy the console that has what they want. If you enjoy halo, buy an xbox.
    I personally don’t find any xbox2 games compelling enough to buy one(although I wouldnt mind giving bioshock or mass effect a run), but if the price dropped in the future I’d probably buy one as a novelty.. except that the better looking black one wont come down to impulse price for a long time, and if I wasn’t dedicated to a console I couldn’t see myself going through the effort of sending it off to get it repaired just to do it over again.

  21. #21 by bobeotm on September 30th, 2007

    Wow, yet another post with tons of long comments…

    Its easy to refute pretty much all three fronts.

    Retro Games? Its called Backwards Compatability and the PSOne library. They havn’t been releasing them as quickly as we would like but they have the capabilites to keep them coming. Besides, XBLA was meant to be small games, and retro titles, the PSN never had that as an intention. Besides, I didnt buy a 600 system to play Galaga on it.

    Hobbyist Development? What has XNA resulted in…really? Other than the contests they put on at E3, NOTHING comes out of that. As far as user generated content is concerned, Sony is closer to realizing that with LBP and UT3 than microsoft has so far allowed in their walled garden. What have YOU seen on live that was created by a user? Nothing. Its hard enough to find something thats free on the thing other than a trailer or demo.

    Third Party Relations? Its called being out earlier and having a somewhat larger installed base, oh, and having lots of cash to pay developers for exclusivity. Developers have had access to 360 dev kits a year longer than the PS3, so obviously there are more games at this point. Yet you still see companies not releasing 360 versions of games because of how poorly it is doing in certain parts of the world, especially in Asia, and european countries outside of the UK. Some third party relations.

    This is not meant to be combative or anything, I just found the things you feel PS3 fans should envy somewhat…off. Not to say there arent things that the 360 does right, but the things you pointed to definitely arent those things.

  22. #22 by mrps3 on September 30th, 2007

    all u guys have WAAAAAAYYYY to much free time to be writing essay length opinions like this. get a life!!

  23. #23 by Dartmerc on September 30th, 2007

    “I didnt buy a 600 system to play Galaga on it.”
    Man I wish I could, it’s my favourite game of all time. Honestly.

    “all u guys have WAAAAAAYYYY to much free time to be writing essay length opinions like this. get a life!!”

    Well I can’t speak on anyone elses behalf, but the kind of place I went to school didn’t have essays a hundred or so words long, and they also taught me how to type faster then 3 words a minute, and to actually express something useful when I do have the time to comment.

    I do envy xbox2 having heaps of downloadable retro games.
    Do I think this will happen to PSN, absolutely. Once the licensing issues which i’m sure exist are ironed out and the like, its my opinion that PSOne games will come flooding in. Still, this doesnt chage the fact that i’m currently a little envious.

  24. #24 by Protoss_reborn on September 30th, 2007

    Well 360 has faulty hardware…30% of Xbox 360 has ring of death…ps3 has none!!!so u pay more …= pay more for the quality ..u moron
    17. 360 Elite is released with 120g hard drive and u can buy it separately and cheaper on ebay so WTF!
    well……ps3 has 80 G…for now….
    18. quite frankly 2007 belongs to the 360, its clearly the way to go

    19. Internet!! i cant even believe u said that, do we all not own a computer? WTF!
    Whatever

  25. #25 by Dartmerc on October 1st, 2007

    18. quite frankly 2007 belongs to the 360, its clearly the way to go
    in term of sales…not the quality of the games

    Not true, the sales numbers between PS3 and Xbox2 are very close.
    PS3 has sold about 300 thousand this year so far, compared to about 280 thousand Xbox2s.
    (http://vgchartz.com/hwcomps.php)

    Sony is making more off each console then M$, and they don’t have to repair every 3rd console.

    So sales, and profit wise, Sony is the victor.
    Thats sure to upset a few fanboys :p

  26. #26 by Jas3r Rogu3 on October 1st, 2007

    Why are we talking about x360 in a PS3 blog?

    just tpo start a flame wear and get a bunch of cheap hits on the webstie.

  27. #27 by Rich on October 1st, 2007

    Oh dear god, attack of the fanboys. I suppose it would have been too much to ask for a mature discussion on a one format only blog.

  28. #28 by Darrin on October 1st, 2007 [ 17143 Points ]

    Both of these posts completely backfired!

    The first post wasn’t simply trying to bash Halo or the 640p thing: I just thought the damage control effort was comical and quite ironic. But it upset a lot of readers.

    So I apologized and wrote this post to appease them. But instead of making them happy, it just upset everyone else. Now people are accusing me of being bought by Microsoft.

    I don’t like to delete posts, but it’s quite tempting in this case. I’ll post some less inflammatory articles.

    Well “Jas3r Rogu3″, you didn’t need to follow the link. As for why we’re discussing a 360? It’s natural to discuss the direct competition. Isn’t that obvious?

    Awesome to see a positive 360 thread… even after the other one… still, with every slightly biased anti-360 post I come to bitch, so I thought the least I could do is say this is appreciated. An attempt to reclaim the middle ground. I know this isn’t a 360 site, but I think we need to move on past the point of having to constantly belittle other consoles.

    Shame it’s devolved to this. I’d just wager that anytime you post a top three list you’re going to get this sort of battle. Because, just like how different consoles can appeal to different people… the features appeal to different people as well. While I prize the features that make my favorite console my favorite console… they probably mean nothing to the next guy.

    Thanks so much Jimmy! That was exactly the reaction I was aiming for. Unfortunately, I still regret this post, as you can see by the rest of the reaction.

    Its kind of comical how a 360 post creates a firestorm of long comments.
