I have a ps3 and an xbox. I prefer the ps3 but probably because it was the first one that i got. I also think the ps3 only games are better than xbox only games.

Morf113
11-05-2009, 05:05 PM
Yeah Ragnar, but i will probably use it on the Xbox 360 cause i don't got a HD TV so no reason for that. And also because my brother is gonna use the game for the PS3.

Being a multiplatform game ACII will most likely have very few if any visual diferences between the two systems.

And only Blu-Ray movies are in 1080p. Even the PS3's most beautiful games (Uncharted 2) are only 720p because of the power it takes to constantly render in full HD. Check the back of PS3 boxes to avoid a flame war.

As for the topic, I always get multiplatform games for my 360 because I prefer the controller.

BUT, if reviews consistently say the game is superior on one system (Fallout 3), then I will get the superior copy. Pretty simple.

PlayStation 3, I grew up with the PS brand~
I've had mine since launch and, unsurprisngly, it's still working as if it was fresh out of the box. My old PS2 lasted eight years ^_^
I'd get a 360, but I'm not liable to needlessly spend money (I already have a PS2, PS3, PSP and access to 3 NDSs), find the controllers a little odd and it doesn't have enough exclusives that interest me.

I REALLY need to get a HD TV, in any case. The LotR movies are being released on Blu-Ray next year. T.T

360 hands down. I had a PS2 and thought I didn't like the Xbox controller. I was WAY wrong and after playing with a friends 360 for a while I quickly realized that in my mind the 360 controller is the best game controller ever built.

Plus how can you not admit that Live is the best online gaming and entertainment experience ever devised. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I use a 360, mainly because I prefer the exclusives (massive fan of Fable) and that all my friends are on 360, and I would not be able to play multiplayer games with them if I had a PS3 only. I would, however, if I had the money like to have a PS3 because I've seen some new franchises that are exclusive that I like the look of, and I did own a PS1 and a PS2. The only games company I was loyal to was Nintendo, and that went down the drain after my huge disappointment with the Wii (not saying it's bad, but you cannot core game on that thing. I find it only fun with parties).

i have both but i'm getting it for the 360 because i got ac1 for ps3 so i want to see how it differs and also the last game i got uncharted 2 was for the ps3. I pre ordered modern warfare 2 for 360 because i like the controller and live service way better than ps3's controller and psn. Wow i got way off topic.

i use a 360 because when i bought mine the ps3's were 600 dollars. and i like the 360's controller a lot better. the ps3's feels to small and ussually the triggers are switched from the 360 layout so IE in cod4 the aim and shoot buttons were on the big triggers on the 360 and the little triggers on the ps3. i didnt like it

I used to have the original Xbox aswell as a PS2 but always seemed to like the PS2 more...

Yes, the Xbox controller is more comfortable but once you get used to the PlayStation controller, it feels fine. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Xbox 360, due to much better controls (playstation controllers seriously need a redesign, shoulder buttons start to hurt after holding them a while).

Also, unlike what a few people have been saying, both versions will be 720p. Until a developer informs us that the PS3 does run at 1080p, you should not believe otherwise.

Xbox 360, mainly because of the Fable series, Mass Effect series, (original Assassin's Creed upon release), mainly just certain games...if PS3 had a nice library when I was shopping for my console that may have been my choice however decided to stay with the Xbox series since I was a fan of most of the games on the previous console that were being carried over into the 360. I have no hatered toward PS owners, I don't really see what the console bashing is all about, I'm sure the companies just absorb it all up with all the advertisement involved in console bashing to make another console look better. However when games like Assassin's Creed II come out on multiple platforms it's just a win-win situation for everyone.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> Sequel buyers switching from 360 to PS3 - report

New data from OTX's GamePlan Insights seems to indicated an intent on the part of gamers to shift their sequel-buying preference in the US from the Xbox 360 platform to the PlayStation 3.

The information, according to Gamasutra, reveals that 15 per cent of people who plan to purchase the PS3 edition of Assassin's Creed II own the original version on the Xbox 360, while just 7 per cent of those planning to buy the 360 version owned the original version on the PS3.

OTX analyst Nick Williams is also seeing a similar trend in the data for Modern Warfare 2 purchasing intentions: "The PS3 seems poised to shift the ratio of Xbox 360 to PS3 sales for most major multi-platform releases in its favour among dual owners," he explained.

He added that of those planning to buy the Assassin's Creed sequel, a "sizeable portion" were looking to do so on the Sony console.

It's unclear whether or the data took into account the changing console installed base, as when the original Creed title was released the Xbox 360 enjoyed a majority over the PS3, which has since changed in the past two years and with the release of the PS3 Slim. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

if the controller is your only complaint you can always get one of these (http://www.dcemu.co.uk/xcm-cross-battle-adapter-2-0-works-on-ps3-slim-262628.html) they also do one for the 360 that lets you use the PS3 controller.

Hm wow, that sounds really great, I'll strongly consider buying that. Thanks for the link.
But it says it also supports sixaxis movement... I wonder how, as the Xbox controller obviously doesn't have a system like that built in.

One more reason to get things for Xbox is much better online support, and an achievement system which feels much more rewarding somehow (even though I'm not someone who plays for achievements / trophies).

I have the ps3 and would think it was better somewhere in my mind because I just hate one thing about xbox which totally turns me off. The controller, buttons too far apart with me with my hands, so ps3 is more compatible...oh yeah the graphics good too...

I would only want xbox because it has halo (which looks so good!) and alot of other games http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif that is the majority of the gaming world now.

But ya...Ps3, for my own reasons.... man I wish I could have both, but I guess 4 Ds's, a ps2, a ps3 2 gamecubes, 2 gameboys, a wii, an atari, and a neintendo 64 is enough, haha...
