    which new console is the best.... Let's go to E3!!!

    I was watching g4techtv and I have to say that i am blown away with the new games coming out. My first opinion about the new game consols is the xbox is good but in the video's i see dropped frames so I am not impressed with that. the ps3 blew me away as well and i did not see any dropped frames at all. Lets hope eh? anyway, here is an article giving you some good info on each console - egghead


    At this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, the buzz is all about the boxes--which game console will be the pace-setter through the middle of the decade. Microsoft got the early spin a week ahead of the E3 show in Los Angeles with its MTV unveiling of the Xbox 360. Now Sony and Nintendo are having their say.

    Leave it to the Engineer's at EETimes to come up with an answer: the Playstation 3 packs twice the power of the Xbox 360.

    "The Playstation 3 will deliver nearly 2 teraflops overall performance, said Ken Kutaragi, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, at a presentation at the E3 game conference. The performance comes from the 3.2-GHz multicore Cell processor co-designed with IBM and Toshiba and the 550-MHz RSX graphics chip developed with Nvidia Corp.

    The resulting system will feature twice the floating-point performance of the Xbox 360 launched late last week. The Playstation 3 has 256-Mbytes of Rambus XDR main memory that will support three times the memory bandwidth of today's PCs, Kutaragi added.

    Sony's performance edge and accelerated schedule may help the top console maker forestall big market gains by No. 2 Microsoft, which will launch its Xbox 360 about six months ahead of the Playstation 3. Previously, observers expected the Playstation 3 would not arrive until the fall of 2006."

    I think I may pick up both. the xbox seems to have some good game companies (not many) behind them this time around.

    I'll get the PS3 first though. especially since its backwards compatible

    Yeah. The PS3 "seems" to beat the XBox right out of the gate. They also have already sent test consoles to developers so it looks like they'll have a large selection of games when it hits the market.

    The big worry for xbox is that its the first one out, but is that really a good thing? There are a ton of First outs that fizzled

    first one out means nothing to me. but to them it means they will get the cash first and in some cases it means they get the only sale due to the fact that many people cannot aford both.

    if ps3 is released after christmas they will miss mass.

    ps3 is more poweful

    The xBox 360 is not even a second generation device. There is no real technology in it, They are just throwing faster hardware into it. The PS3 is a huge upgrade. One of the main goals for it is to replace Windows Media Center.
