Xbox 360 has some draw to me for the Xbox Live and Xbox Guide features. It seems to have a ton of software-related features such as Xbox Live Arcade, Video Chat, ect, as well as some cool add-ons like the Camera. But it's mainly the software features that have got me interested.
The Revolution suppousively is going to have some amazing controllers, as well as being able to download a huge library of older titles. I love playing older classics, especially when they are free. This has got me interested.
However, the PS3 left me very unwhelmed. The Sony conference had some great demos, but most of it just wasn't REAL. I would have liked some more substance. And then the fact that there isn't anything really sticking out with PS3 that has got me interested. Sure, it's pushing boundaries with the Cell, with BluRay support, and 1080p compatability. However, it seems to just be flexing their muscles, and not offering anything different or any sort of feature that has me interested over the other consoles.
It's biggest draw is right now that it's more "powerful" than the other consoles. But even that is doubtful as Sony hasn't had a great track record with living up to their own hype.
And this has got me confused:
What, exactly, is PS3 doing that hasn't been done before? I'm honestly confused at the appeal to the PS3 at this point, other than it looks really damn sleek."Just raising the graphics capabilities and output resolution won't change anything from the current world of video game consoles," said Kutaragi. He went on to say that Microsoft's new game console is more of an "Xbox 1.5" than a new console, in the sense that it seems like an extension of the original Xbox.
