I will seriously consider switching over to PS4 once they announce it and we get solid details. I'm extremely unhappy with Xbox Live and the interface of the Xbox 360 as it is.

Unless they improve PSN, XBL is always going to be better. The Interface of the 360 is really great once you get use to it. I hope that the PS4 interface is lot better than the empty PS3 one.

what is better about live that makes it worth $60 a year in your opinion?

It's extremely sluggish and has tons of ads. Every update they do of it makes it even worse in some way. PSN is beautiful in it's simplicity. It isn't sluggish, and it has almost no ads.

I used to think XBL was better, but now I'm not so sure.

First is Cross-game chat. Second XBL is overall better Online system since it's built from the start to support every game on the 360. Third the updates take less time to download and install. Fourth it's universal guide button is much easier to do stuff like check if you have any messages. Finally you get more apps than you do on PSN.

Mines is not sluggish at all. Sure there are ads but most are for games or movies. Most of the ads are in the right lower corner of the screen so it doesn't bother me much anymore. I pay for cable and yet still get tons of ads.

If mines sluggish, so is yours. Sorry, we're not talking about varied, custom, high-end PCs here. I don't pay anything for PSN and I only get ads on one screen. I pay $60 a year for XBL and I get ads on every single screen. That's ridiculous and you know it.

Most of the ads are not ads they are just information of other things available on the 360. The Sony fanboys just like to lie and say there is a Taco Bell ad on every screen when most of it is just information on what else is available on the 360. Also just because yours is sluggish does not mean everyone has it sluggish. Mine is not sluggish at all. You may have very poor internet connection.

information on other things to buy. that's basically what an ad is. doesn't matter WHAT they are advertising, the point is Microsoft gets money enough from ads to allow for free service. cross-game chat is really the only thing the 360 has over the ps3 i care about and the vita has that, so it's not hard to believe the ps4 will as well. people say downloads on psn are slow, but it still only took me about 20 minutes to download the revengeance demo and that was a few GBs large. I swear I've downloaded mappacks for games on the 360 only half as large or smaller and it's taken me more time. But yeah, ps4 better have a way better interface. I don't wanna see the XMB ever again and they shouldn't use what the vita has either.

I pay 60 dollars a year. I shouldn't have to see them. In fact, I should have an option that completely removes them from my screens.

Dude, internet connection has nothing to do with regular menu screens. When I hit the Xbox button and it takes a second or two to actually show the menu, that's sluggish. And it's like that on every single Xbox 360 I've ever tried it on. Like I said, we're not talking about PCs that are varied when it comes to hardware. Most Xbox 360s are exactly the same(with the obvious exceptions being the original, elite and slim versions). So either you guys don't know what sluggish is, or you're being illogical.

#163 Posted by Murderstyle75 (4165 posts) -
Yep. The 360 is very sluggish and it all began with the Fall 2010 update for Kinect support. Then they added the advertising infested Metro dashboard and it got even worse.

[QUOTE="locopatho"][QUOTE="brofists"] My goodnes you are just as delusional as miketham83 is That is not in any way shape or form the "real list" just because you say so or want it to be.. What you are doing is selectively picking and choosing to suite your arguement. First of all, the PS2 games you speak of aren't PS2 games, they are collection series for the PS3, which you can only play on the PS3 etc But theres the fact you want to add trails, and then fail to add journey That was just one example of how biased you are being And even with the biased list you want to put fourth, PS3 exclusives still dominate, have more higher scoring exclusives and across a much wider spectrum So can you fail even more? I mean my goodness, you basically self owned yourself! The PS3 wins and will continue to win with the PS4, while the 720 will be a casual kinect box, so have fun with that lol. Stay mad lem! DISSESHOWEDO

PS2 games aren't PS3 games. I did add Journey, it's clearly on the PS3's (smaller) list of AAA exclusives. You lied, you made sh!t up, and you still failed. Deal with it.

 

Yeah Geo Wars 2 ! Now STFU !

Yup, it's a AAAe game for 360 :) I think Killzone 2 is a garbage game, it's still a AAAe game. I think Journey is good but way too short to be AAA... doesn't matter, it's still a AAAe game. Unlike rancid cows, I don't force my opinion as fact. I use facts as fact :)
#165 Posted by Slashkice (13061 posts) -

Lol you're counting those PS2 baseball games as PS3 exclusives. Counting Journey for PS but not trials for 360. And probably counting Okami HD for all I know Jesus you have to combine convoluted made up rules AND outright lies for PS to win something

locopatho

Two of the MLB games do count as exclusives here, much like GRAW. The actual count is 10-10. So, huzzah, I guess.

O right. I didn't count the baseball games or GRAW. Either way, they're pretty much the same. Or 360 slightly edges it. Huzzah for cows :P

I completely agree with your posts brother. I used to swear by 360. Although PS3 online isn't as good (close), I'd rather pay nothing for the value I get than $60 of Live.

#168 Posted by Phazevariance (10937 posts) -
Real talk, Sony seems to do this every gen and they'll probably do it again. They announce a new platform, they hype the sh!t out of its graphic capabilities with doctored videos and screenshots and when the thing comes out it barely outperforms its main competition. It happened with the PS2 vs the Dreamcast. It happened with the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Neon_Noir
Well they ahve to spout BS talk because they don't ahve the funding to do the marketing campaign that MS will do. Sling mud to dirty the competition first, try and capitalize on more sales based off that (while fueling their cow-base with MS hatred) and then losign marketshare to the competition when people realize its cheaper and runs the same. 360 was cheaper, and ran games better, even if it didn't have those later generation spiffy exclusives sony had. But the good ones of thsoe are rare. I will give sony this, Uncharted games are boss.

My Live has never been as sluggish as my PSN. For the longest I didn't know what cows here meant by "ads". The bottom right tile is an ad that I cant here unless I highlight it. Now I now they mean the tiles that tell me what is featured that week in Live. Well it beats having to fire up the PSN store and then sift through to see imo. I use cross game chat a lot with other soldiers on different posts so that is key for me. what you said, airshocker, can be easily flipped. If our Live isn't sluggish yours must not be. Nothing revolves around you.

If both consoles come this fall in my country, and rumors end up being true (PS4 being more powerful, easy to develop for, free online, etc), no doubt! I'm a fan of Xbox 360 in the same way i am a fan of PS1 and PS2, so if PS4 proves to be better than Xbox 3, i'll gladly 'jump out'.

You have seen their fanbase. Sony can lie out their @ss as much as they want and their fans will thank them then ask for seconds.

LOL how rich, you two delusional xbots in a playstation thread trolling. Arent there any 360 threads you two can verbally felate each other to? Oh I forget, microsoft nor the 360 has nothing else going for it, so you both spend all your time talking about the playstation.l instead. That says it all Anyway, NOTHING and I repeat nothing comes close to the out right lies and deception of the first kinect trailers by Microsoft! Remember every thing Microsoft promised? Did they even match any of those promises? Not even close! Microsoft is the very worst at doing what you two empty knuckle heads accuse Sony of doing Pkus the fact is killzone 2 and killzone 3 matched the e3 trailer, so you two are out right making lies to begin with. Sony delivers. Microsoft bullsh!ts you, just like they did with Kinect, and then never even attempts to come close to the many bold faces promises they made with kinect Xbots like you two should have your internet internet access revoked. You two cloud up the internet on a daily basis with your stupidity, delusions, and blind hatred of all things Sony. Whats sad about that is that you two spend hours, days, months, and years of your pathetic existence talking about all things playstation. That tells me that you would rather talk about playstation then the talk about the xbox, and in that case the playstation has already won, and owns your minds

Are you alright bro? You sound upset.

Apparently you are a rookie who bought into the Xbox hype during the Kinect era. If you compare the first two dashboards to the ones that released in 2010 and later, it is very sluggish. The system used to be faster than my iPhone. Now its full of bloatware dragging everything down. I really think all this non gaming crap that was later added is putting a beating on the consoles RAM.

Cranky's Video Game Heroes

Cranky's Video Game Heroes is an awards ceremony in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2, to see who can collect the most DK Coins. The player may be in this event after they beat the game, or by pressing the L button after they beat it.

When the player first sees Cranky's Video Game Heroes, Mario is found in first with 39 coins, Yoshi appears in second with 29 coins, and Link is seen in third place with 19 coins. To beat the three characters, the player must collect DK Coins on their adventure, and Diddy Kong will appear as one of the top three if he gets at least 19 coins, eliminating Link from the standings.

  • In the corner of the screen here, Sonic's shoes and Earthworm Jim's raygun are seen next to a sign that says "No Hopers", most likely meaning that they failed to collect enough coins. Mainly, It was included because of Nintendo and Sega's rivalry at the time.

Remember how the PS3 was supposed to be a supercomputer that would blow away the Xbox 360? Neon_Noir

It was never siad it would be a super computer that would blow the 360 away. It was stated that the PS3 had superior CPU power that turned out to be less significant than thought due to not being able to use it the way people thought it could be used. The architecture of the PS3 bottlenecked the CPU power and brought down it's potential

With PS4 the architecture is changed as not to have that be the case again. .

Inferior video card is actually what makes the multiplat games so terrible. But sony told everyone it was a supercomputer that it would blow away the competition, and it didn't. That is actually something they said. Now the PS4 is going to be anounced, and the next day you will see MOOjuice all over system wars spouting thigns like "MS is done for" "end of days for MS" even tho MS hasn't released any actual info on their upcoming console. They will believe the war for next gen is won already because they are that ... dumb.

everyone knows playstation is the better GAMING console. ps3 and xbox play a lot of the same games, but when it comes to exclusives, ps3 blows the 360 out of the water. like everyone has already said xbox only has halo, gears, and forza. meanwhile ps3 players are playing uncharted, god of war, gran turismo, killzone, resistance, infamous, and LBP. Don'tt forgrt about future titles like the last of us and beyond 2 souls. what does xbox have coming out? a gears game? shocker. a kinect dancing game? nobody cares. thats why playstation wins they hire great studios to make great games, not live off the same ip year after year. If you are a hands down hardcore gamer than you know ps3 is the better gaming machine.

The online is very comparable minus all the bloatware slowing your dashboard down. I have been a very regular poster on the Xbox.com forums for two generations and their biggest argument right now is that Xbox Live has party chat. They claim its the benefit of paying for your service. The reality is though that Vita has party chat too and the only reason the Playstation does not have it yet is due to a RAM issue. While its something I absolutely dread, you can expect Party Chat to be on the PS4. I wonder what the fanboy arguement will be then.

Now I now they mean the tiles that tell me what is featured that week in Live. Well it beats having to fire up the PSN store and then sift through to see imo. I use cross game chat a lot with other soldiers on different posts so that is key for me. what you said, airshocker, can be easily flipped. If our Live isn't sluggish yours must not be. Nothing revolves around you.cainetao11

I would call you a liar, actually. The responsiveness of the menu isn't determined by internet speed. It's determined by the console. It's sluggish.

Even when turning it on and selecting a profile it takes longer than my PS3 does.

You are right and this all started in 2010 with the Kinect shovelware. people can be in such denial sometimes.

Apparently you are a rookie who bought into the Xbox hype during the Kinect era. If you compare the first two dashboards to the ones that released in 2010 and later, it is very sluggish. The system used to be faster than my iPhone. Now its full of bloatware dragging everything down. I really think all this non gaming crap that was later added is putting a beating on the consoles RAM. Now if you are not some 2010/2011 rookie, than you are in some serious denial.

No on both. I'm 40, been posting here for 7 years, bought a 360 in '06, PS3 in '08. Maybe, just maybe, your experience is just that. YOUR EXPERIENCE. And others are theirs. But, I get it, you really know.........................

I own 3 360 consoles and its the same with all three. I have a Xenon, an Elite and a Slim. The dashboard has a rather slow response starting at the end of 2010 when it had to handle extra crap. It's exactly the same on all my friends consoles as well. Meanwhile I go to my sisters house who still has the blades dashboard since they do not go online and its as fast as I remember with every task.

I believe you and I have different definitions of slow. I'm not so impatient that a 1-2 second swirl on screen gets me crazy.

[QUOTE="Neon_Noir"]Remember how the PS3 was supposed to be a supercomputer that would blow away the Xbox 360? Phazevariance

It was never siad it would be a super computer that would blow the 360 away. It was stated that the PS3 had superior CPU power that turned out to be less significant than thought due to not being able to use it the way people thought it could be used. The architecture of the PS3 bottlenecked the CPU power and brought down it's potential

With PS4 the architecture is changed as not to have that be the case again. . 

Inferior video card is actually what makes the multiplat games so terrible. But sony told everyone it was a supercomputer that it would blow away the competition, and it didn't. That is actually something they said. Now the PS4 is going to be anounced, and the next day you will see MOOjuice all over system wars spouting thigns like "MS is done for" "end of days for MS" even tho MS hasn't released any actual info on their upcoming console. They will believe the war for next gen is won already because they are that ... dumb.

No they did not stop making crap up. It had better CPU and MS always parade the GPU on 360 was better,MS even did charts showing how much better the 360 was over the PS3,no PS3 game should look better than a 360 one,but they do because of Cell. Now both companies use the same CPU and the same GPU basically from the same vendor,the PS4 has faster ram which is unified,a stronger GPU and the same CPU,you don't have to be fortune teller to know which is more powerful. Hell Durango use 3GB of system ram and 2 cores from its CPU alone for handling the OS,that is a pretty big hit resources wise,oh and kinect is mandatory to even launch a game so who knows how much more resources are tied up because of that.

I love all of sonys quirkiness and the things they come out with, if you dont take it all serious its quite endearing LOL.

Patiently (although now running out) waiting for the ps4/orbis/whatever its called:)
