Sony delays its new PS3 controller

Sony has delayed the release of its motion controller for the PlayStation 3 until this fall.

The electronics company announced Wednesday it will release its new controller, originally promised for spring 2010, with games that can actually use the device. Those games will also need the PlayStation Eye camera, which will detect the movements and reflect them in the game.

A statement from Sony said the yet-unnamed controller will be released “in fall 2010 in Japan, Asian regions and countries, North America and Europe/PAL territories together with an extensive line-up of exciting software titles.”

The delay will no longer give Sony the jump on Microsoft’s expected release of its Project Natal system. The new motion-sensitive controller for the Xbox 360 is due to be released in the fourth quarter of 2010, in time for the holiday season.

I think everything that Sony comes out with is always better than that of Microsoft.


Guest   January 20th, 2010 1:54 pm ET

I totally aggree. Sure, the XBOX360 is cheaper, but with its horrible hardware issues, its no doubt that Sony's PlayStation3 will redefine the gaming industry once again...and more than likely re-take the console king crown.


RJ   January 20th, 2010 3:00 pm ET

Ya right project natal will destroy sony ,just like xbox 360 did.


CB   January 20th, 2010 3:30 pm ET

Yes the 360 sure did destroy Sony. Wow! You have to love people like that. No doubt that the 360 has some great games. I own both systems but would much rather play my PS3 in the last year or so. Microsoft took off out of the gate, but I believe Sony will win in the end. Why would you count them out already?


Voice of Reason   January 20th, 2010 3:35 pm ET

Methinks you really need to study the meaning of the word: destroy.


DR   January 20th, 2010 4:14 pm ET

im a die hard sony fan but i have been reading about the microsoft natal project and it somes pretty solid. i think it will probably beat sony sadly... nicest thing i think about the natal project is that your able to play the games with a controler


RB   January 20th, 2010 4:32 pm ET

Destroy Sony just like the xbox360 did? I think you've lost your mind, xbox360 has not come close to destroying the sony. Look at the sales figures, xbox360 has a bit more, but with the price difference and the quality of the ps3 only games, ps3 heavily outweighs xbox360


nick   January 20th, 2010 4:58 pm ET

um last i checked, xbox didnt crush sony. look again buddy...everyone is selling off their xbox's to get playstations because it is a sustainable platform with little to no hardware or software issues. whish i could say the same for the xbox.


Rascula   January 20th, 2010 5:27 pm ET

Actually the PS3 is catching up to the 360's world wide sales numbers rather quickly. The only country in which the PS3 trails is the US. http://www.vgchartz.com/ gives the weekly sales updates worldwide. Sony may not catch up, but they are far from being destroyed.


james   January 20th, 2010 5:45 pm ET

Xbox360? PS3? Both insanely inept compared to a PC. Yes friends, a PC.


Yaya   January 20th, 2010 6:23 pm ET

Well you dont think much do you? That controller wasnt ready and neither is Sony to win this Gaming War...


Devler   January 20th, 2010 7:12 pm ET

Natals already been done. Eyetoy but with depth. Woah! Insane! Crazy! Can't believe they came up with such a innovative idea!

Sony has their head on straight here. They have the motion control with tactile feedback, working in conjunction with the camera that already in a couple million homes.

It's the best features between WII and Natal.

It's in arguable that they have the best tech. But.... will it be successful? Phhhhh, I don't see either device going very far.


khan   January 20th, 2010 7:33 pm ET

I'm not looking forward to either Sony's motion controller, nor Project Natal. Ppl will play with it, then it'll fall to the way side, as it's just an annoyance.

It's like the motion on the current Sixaxis/DS3. The games that make use of it, is just gimmicky at best. Just give me the option to press my button, instead of randomly shaking my controller.

And Project Natal? Getting to not use a controller and flail your arms around. Ya, can't imagine that tech is going to function too well. All your good 3D motion capture devices, require some kind of sensor on the user. That or a booth with multiple cameras for 3D capture. Project Natal won't? I doubt it'll work as advertised.

Hence why Sony is going to go with the tried and true method of using a controller in conjunction with the PS Eye. Bet it'll work as intended. I also bet both Project Natal and Sony's attempt will just fall to the wayside.


Raul   January 20th, 2010 8:34 pm ET

ps3 will catch up no doubt about that, new motion controller should be sick on mw2 or god of war 3, i think sony just doesn't want a repeat of what happened with the ps3 when it came out (it had no games)


Fa-Reezy   January 20th, 2010 10:48 pm ET

Catching up, but PS3 CONTINUOUSLY busts their deadlines on games for the sake of near-godlike Quality Checking and Assurance...on top of that, because XBOX360 had the jump in the first place, PS3 needs a substantial amount of PS3-Exclusive Games to offset the stream of cross-console titles that, honestly, play better online through XBOX Live rather than PSN.

PSN does not have the sprawling community that XBOX has so meticulously thought out and implemented, and now, with the hook into the social networking platform, i.e. Facebook, XBOX 360 is going even more widescale. PS3 better stop sleeping on GT5 and get its act together. No wonder the Final Fantasy franchise jumped ship; they're scared of the Development Hell.


xPDPx   January 21st, 2010 12:08 am ET

Even on CNN, we have fanboy battles.


XBOX Man   January 21st, 2010 7:10 am ET

I love XBOX!!!! My first one failed right after the extended warranty expired so I went and got an Elite!! That failed after 2 months, but they sent me a new one!! It's a good thing the 360 was released one year before the PS3 so that they could get the bugs out... Thank you Microsoft!!!


Foyble Rock   January 21st, 2010 9:18 am ET

SNES ftw.


SMC   January 21st, 2010 9:36 am ET

I think sony is better than Microsoft. The 360 has all kinds of problems and it sucks, i have ps3 and its way better online than 360!


YK Stat   January 21st, 2010 9:58 am ET

I have been a PlayStation fan for years and I can safely say that Sony will always deliver top notch quality in the gaming industry. Do not get fooled. Xbox is good, but PS3 is designed to excel.


WJG   January 21st, 2010 10:09 am ET

Sorry, i love the Sony products, but I agree with RJ, Project Natal will destroy the PS3. The PlayStation Network is garbage, and Xbox Live is way more user-friendly. It has its hardware issues, but its way more easier to navigate through.


las   January 21st, 2010 11:59 am ET

i love sony playstation and nothing more...
they r doing good with playstation 3.


Sentheras   January 21st, 2010 1:31 pm ET

Hmm sounds like it will beat the Wii tho....

I guess we will just have to wait and see though...


Someone   January 21st, 2010 2:13 pm ET

360 destroy Sony? Give me a break! I own both PS3 and 360. So I take no sides. But last I checked, Sony never laid claim that they've been dominated by Microsoft's 360... fanboy comments are idiotic.


Nefurnest   January 21st, 2010 2:32 pm ET

Look people. stop saying
"Sony will overcome Xbox, Project Natal will destroy the PS3 yada yada yada..."
Who cares about your unbacked opinion?
Here's some intel for ya:

Wait for it

Just enjoy games!


Rorschach   January 21st, 2010 2:37 pm ET

How did motion controls get so far with Nintendo? From day one they had a cheap console, it was small and hardly took up space (PS3 Phat Is huge, 360 has the ugly external power brick) and had the most user friendly/family friendly games and OS. The controller was fun, cool and one of a kind when the Wii released. This is also why the DS has sold so well. I own PS3 Phat, PSP-2000, DS Lite. I only wish I would've waited for the PS3 Slim.....Natal and this "Wand" are going to be flops.


Mike   January 21st, 2010 3:04 pm ET

PC > every console system for gaming. I have both systems...they are both collecting dust; well that is except for my PS3–that is my blu-ray player.


obsz   January 21st, 2010 3:16 pm ET

doesnt really matter what console you have now. most game are multi platform. your only buying a machine for the exclusive and the onling gaming. nintendo wii was so successful because of it's motion controls and that it appealed to families. 360 so far has the best online gaming next to the PC, and playstation has the best graphics and only appeals to mature audience. i love playstaion but i hate the PS network, i juse Xbox live. but whatever you guys can fight it out.

we all know WOW makes the most money in the gaming world LoL. and all blizzard games i suppose.


Trevor Dorl   January 21st, 2010 4:38 pm ET

Um people who are supporting sony does ANY of you remember the original playsation eye?*shudder*


Dan   January 21st, 2010 5:38 pm ET

I'm with Nefurnest. Who cares? Just enjoy the games. I own all of the systems and I still play my PS2 the most. It does not matter how you play or what you play as long as you HAVE FUN. Everyone has an opinion. We are at war overseas. Not here😉


Charles Burnaford   January 21st, 2010 6:18 pm ET

The PS/3 has something that the XBOX does not. It is a real computer that is being used as a game console.

I use my PS3 as a Linux computer on the Internet as well as a game console.

Try doing that with a unmodified X-BOX.

I have also designed several specialized controllers for my PS3.


Evan   January 21st, 2010 6:35 pm ET

I love the one nintendo fan boys comment.."How did motion controls get so far with Nintendo? " It didn't it took a step backwards....Wii is the crapiest entertainment system Ever...hands down...Duck Hunt...thats what I call true motion control...the best thing to happen to video games before the Joy of Zelda...007 and Halo..and now wow. I'm a 360 fan, and a pc fan. I dislike Sony for its horrible Online compared to live. But i hate, microsoft everything costs something attitude. Overal Natal and the motion captured control will all flop, 3d tv's with 3d gaming is the next thing. Just keep the controls the same and make them better.


Sid   January 21st, 2010 7:27 pm ET

I actually know someone who got a chance to test the Project Natal controller as part of an agreement between Microsoft and their employer for determining the controllers usability of purposes besides games. This person hates anything Microsoft's ever made and was convinced the controller was a gimmick.

However, he said he was completed blown away by his experience using the controller and he was even more blown away it was made by Microsoft. Normally I wouldn't trust anything he would have to say about Apple, google etc. but the fact that he had something so positive about a Microsoft product has gotten my interest.


eric   January 21st, 2010 7:49 pm ET

NES 4 life!


Golaith182   January 21st, 2010 11:58 pm ET

I love how all of the 360 and PS3 fan boys say they will beat each other. Read a sales chart lately? Wii is whipping both of your asses. Personally I think all consoles will be clones of the Wii next generation. Bye bye hard core gamers (unless you play on PC that is).


Patrick   January 23rd, 2010 9:23 pm ET

The PS3 isn't that great in my opinion. I'm probably one of the few who hardware issues with both system. I experienced the RRoD on the 360. Thankfully I was able to fix the problem temporarily. I recently purchased the Elite system and had no problem with it since.

As for my PS3, the laser on the disc reader died after minimal use on the system. Sony wanted $150 to repair. I'll repair it eventually but I see no rush. I bought a cheap blu-ray player and that should do for awhile. Otherwise, the games just aren't that much better to me. Besides the fact you can surf the internet on the PS3, I find nothing that Microsoft can't replicate on average or better. I don't mind paying for Live because it's fantastic. The Achievement system was so popular that Sony had to copy it via trophies and what not.

All the consoles are great but to argue that one is better than the other is stupid. They're both great machines with amazing capabilities. I do own a Wii and can't see why anyone would try to defend that system. It's a Playstation 2 minus the DVD player. The controllers and casual gaming are such a gimmick. I've barely played mine and regret purchasing it aside from the drunken Wii bowling get togethers.


AMS   January 25th, 2010 9:21 pm ET

I think the worst thing Sony ever did was remove the backwards compatibility. Even though I love the PS3 I have now, I wish I would have bought one earlier =(


lordcorpse   January 26th, 2010 4:10 am ET

Wow. All of you people with the hard-ons for Sony have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to online. Period.


Bob D. Builder   January 26th, 2010 10:56 am ET

We don't pay for playing online w/Sony😀


Jon   January 26th, 2010 12:51 pm ET

The Xbox 360 cheaper? Maybe for the system itself but plug in all the extras like online play , wifi conectivity costs, and microsoft points and you are paying more. Yes xbox games were better but the blue ray player and unlimited expansion capabilities for developers will make the PS3 much better in the long run.


Dan   January 26th, 2010 1:01 pm ET

Wii ftw!!!! Even though there are a lot of crappy games there are some very good ones in there. As for Xbox and PS3 both natal and the PS princess wand will fail. Have they not learned anything over the years. Its all about the games!!!!


Bethusala   January 26th, 2010 3:01 pm ET

Virtual Boy will forever bring me the greatest realism and immersion.


Mike   January 26th, 2010 4:29 pm ET

Wow, a motion controller... I seem to remember a little thing called the Wii that has the same thing! I hope its better as Sony has had years to perfect it. Nothing revolutionary or amazing about it, however Project Natal for the 360 is all of those things. Being able to play a game based solely off the motion of your body takes technology far beyond what Sony is putting into their controller.


Jimmy   January 26th, 2010 6:27 pm ET

GOOGLE MAG for the PS3. I own the 360... but this looks like it will blow Microsoft out of the water, definitly for MW2 fans....


Jimmy T.   January 27th, 2010 12:17 pm ET

I find it confusing as to why the PS3 and Xbox360 are fighting each other about which is better when my major concern is PS3's adopting the motion control scheme of the Wii. Both Sony and Microsoft laughed when Nintendo introduced motion controls but now they seem to be retro-fitting attachements and controllers for motion control. Sad but it's all about business I guess.


Megan Pawlak   January 30th, 2010 5:33 am ET

Has everyone forgotten that motion control isn't new? Both Sony AND Microsoft opted to forgo motion controls, leaving them to the much-laughed-at Wii. Now Nintendo has had years of experience working with motion controls that Sony and Microsoft are just catching up on. With the introduction of the Motion Plus accessory, the hardcore gamers have the option of upgrading the sensitivity of the controls for newer, compatible games. I WILL say that Nintendo desperately needs a better answer to monitoring feet actions than the balance board alone. The board isn't as sensitive as I would like because it can't tell if you've picked up your foot without a strong enough shift in balance. I often find my balance is so solid that it thinks I stood still when I didn't. Other than this small gripe, the Wii has been very impressive for being the first of it's kind. Don't think that Sony and Microsoft can kill the Wii. Nintendo has more experience and a much bigger following in the long run. I don't own an xbox and don't plan to, and I only own a ps3 slim because of very specific games I want to play which will be released in the next few months. The Wii won't disappear.


AGx-07_162   January 30th, 2010 11:52 am ET

First of all, a (comparible) 360 is NOT cheaper than the PS3. The cheapest versions come with smaller HD's, wired controllers, standard definition output, no WiFi and you have to subscribe to XBL.

To make a 360 comparible to even the cheapest PS3 (before price drops) you had to tack on the price of the WiFi adapter, Hi Def drive, larger HD drive, controllers and not to mention the continuous fee for XBL. Short term and long run, a PS3 is cheaper and always will be more powerful.

I own both so I'm not hating on Xbox. I like it but its just not better and neither is Natal.


rob42164   February 1st, 2010 8:21 pm ET

the real reason that microsoft has sold so many consoles is they keep breaking. I bought 3 myself before i got a ps3.

as for natal only time will tell.........but honestly I don't play games to move around, if i'm gonna have to put effort into video games ill just go outside and exercise.


Dalivus   February 2nd, 2010 12:37 am ET

I don't care if it ever gets released; it's a gimmick. I bought the Wii first and, after not touching it for 6 months, I sold it. Its now been about 3 months since I last touched my 360. PS3 is a better MACHINE. I couldn't care less about Natal or Sony's new device.


curtegg   February 2nd, 2010 12:00 pm ET

Natal, hmmm, I was doing that stuff on my Amiga over a decade and a half ago.

Anyway, I'm sure MS will get it going before Sony and it will give them a leg up. However, given the quality of MS hardware (other than their mouse and keyboards) the XBox will need to be revamp. The present incarnation failure rate is excessive (bad thermal design). I'll be happy to wait a bit longer to see what Sony comes up with to compete with Natal. Quality of the PS3 > XBox. The fact that it is so much quieter and doesn't use a stupid power brick made me go for their console.


Combat   February 2nd, 2010 12:21 pm ET

I have played many multiplayer games (bfbc, codmw2 ect) on both systems. On the PS3/PSN it always looks so watered down. To the point I thought I was playing it on a PS2. The problem is the graphics quality of multiplayer games on PSN. They so totally reflect the price you pay for accessing it.

The only reason that PS3 sales are up is because the economy is down, and people want free online gaming. Stop lying to yourselves about how great a system PS3 is. The argument "..But it's got a Bluray player" won't work anymore, and doesn't make up for poor online performance.

PS3 will never receive the kind of backing that the XBOX360 gets from MICROSOFT. The PS3 is a good system. Will not deny that. Yet to say it's better than the XBOX360 in any way, shape, or form is total lunacy. Just look at how many people PAY for XBOX LIVE every year.
Those numbers will never lie.


James M M   February 3rd, 2010 1:03 am ET

"I totally aggree. Sure, the XBOX360 is cheaper, but with its horrible hardware issues, its no doubt that Sony's PlayStation3 will redefine the gaming industry once again...and more than likely re-take the console king crown."

That is total BS fanboy. Just so you know PS3's have hardware issues too. My Blu-Ray drive died and would not read any disks and guess what? Sony wouldnt pay for it but MS paid for my RROD 360.


James M M   February 3rd, 2010 1:09 am ET

"GOOGLE MAG for the PS3. I own the 360... but this looks like it will blow Microsoft out of the water, definitly for MW2 fans...."

MAG is GARBAGE and a all around GENERIC online shooter.

Noobs in here   February 3rd, 2010 11:26 am ET

Wow @ noobs using VGChartz(lol) for accurate graphing data.


Su4v3   February 3rd, 2010 1:55 pm ET

PS3 is a better choice for me! I own a a wii also, but besides the basics (tennis, golf, bowling...) all other games sucks. Sometimes you don't want to have to monkey around, you just want to play. Some games they have to find something that you have to do some kind of a motion, and it's just not natural.

Anyway, I miss Halo 2, from the original Xbox, I just loved that game, as everyone here, I suppose.

Now, I have a PS3 (besides the Wii I barelly play), and it's better for me, because when I'm not playing, I'm watching blue ray movies, so I don't have that feeling of I bought something I never use. So for that, it's great.

And whenever I feel like it, I can play really cool games on a great platform.

On a side note, in my opinion, MIcrosoft as a company, in general, sucks. They only make money on Windows, a half ass OS, that they spend a lot of money on marketing and not enough on development, because it still SUCKS.

Then, the have all that cash, so they look around to see what products are selling the most, and they go on and invent their own version, which is ALWAYS way not even half as good!

For example, any one of their search engines! Bing kind of works, but who cares, we all use google. Then, they go after the Ipod! WHY??? The Ipod is great! So they make ZUNO, what a joke!!!

That's microsoft. Half ass products, millions in marketing!!!


joe   February 3rd, 2010 2:03 pm ET

alright so i own an xbox 360 and have played PS3 a number of times. I have had my xbox for over 2 years now, and ive experienced more lag in the PS3 in a few play throughs than I have in Xbox 360 over 2 years, both online and offline. Ya, the PS3 has better graphics, but that may be part of the lag problem. I honestly don't care about graphics as long as the game is entertaining. PS3's online gaming is no where near as stable as the 360's. It's free, but thats a bad thing in a way. The 360 uses the money people pay for Live to fix their problems with live, and other problems. 360's downloads are faster. I will give this to PS3, better graphics, usually better campaigns or offline play (though I have experienced some very bad frame rate issues), and a more professional looking system.


peezzy1   February 3rd, 2010 9:50 pm ET

everything was soo much easier when we all owned atari's


Bakophman   February 4th, 2010 11:54 am ET

I'm pretty sure by the end of 2010 the PS3 will surpass the 360 in sales along with exclusive titles. They started off 2010 ahead of the game as far as great releases (exclusive at that). 360 has Mass Effect 2, but that's not truely an exclusive game, it'll be released for PS3 in a month or two (not to mention, PS3 owners won't have to swap discs middway between the game lol. seriously? I haven't swapped discs for a game since PS1). Also, Sony developed the PS3 with the intention of it having a life-cycle of 10 years, like the PS2. As for upcoming exlcusives the PS3 has:

Heavy Rain
Gran Turismo 5
God of War 3
Rockstar's new franchise (details coming soon)


russell   February 4th, 2010 2:07 pm ET

I haven't had any issues with my 360 since it went down the first time , I sent it in ( for free ) Microsoft repaired it , haven't hjad problems since , i'll take my 360 over the Playstation any day !......


h man   February 4th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

you are all idiots, nintendo has sold more consoles than any one else in the history of video games.


LILDVL   February 5th, 2010 4:29 am ET

Unless you own stock in either company, this is simple fanboy hate. I have 3 Xbox 360, 2 PS3, one fat thats backwards compatible and one slim. Cant go wrong with a Blue ray player,dvd player and game system in one. I have a Wii and also a video game cabinet that plays 5,000 plus video game roms, Crystalcade thats awesome.

My point is, regardless of the hardware its the person playing the games that count. I love video games, had the Atari and anything else that came after.

I play games with my kids and its fun, regardless of the system. Enjoy the games guys and gals.


Texas Gamer   February 5th, 2010 2:05 pm ET

I find it amusing to read all of the console "comparisons" above!🙂 Fact of the matter is that Sony and Microsoft both lost out on the motion control market to Nintendo. Nintendo IS a great platform and it does fill it's niche well, but Sony and MS missed the boat on capitalizing on the motion sensing craze. I own a Wii and the only thing it's used for is the wife's "Wii Fit" (which Sony or MS can't even touch right now) and for me playing COD Modern Warfare. I play CODMW on PS3 and PC and I LOVE it on the Wii even tho the graphics are somewhat lacking. 🙂


Mat   February 6th, 2010 3:21 am ET

After Nintendo, Sony adopted Final Fantasy. Much. Better. Games. And who was talking about lag on the PS3? I canned my Xbox 360 for a PS3 because I always had lag, even when my wireless terminal was right next to the system. The games arent that fun, hated the controller, and the best game I played was Gears of War. Halo sucked. Come at me. Dont care. I hated Halo. PS3 is more mature, has innovating games, and generally I dont think many people who never had both systems know this, but when there is a multiplatform game, 360 tends to take OUT some of the content because it cant keep up. Proven in Star Ocean, which is being released on PS3 now, much better than the 360 version, having more items and extras, Final Fantasy which will be out in March, has even stated that 360 will have missing content because it cant handle some of it. PS3 has much more innovating games geared towards adults. Sure, the first person shooters tend to suck on PS3, but those suck anyway. Use a computer for first person shooters. Every other game, I have liked PS3 much better.

But I am pissed I dont get to play Mass Effect 2. Best Xbox 360 game in my opinion next to gears was Mass Effect. I may borrow a buddies system for 2 but only that. I cant stand 360 and its online fees, slow gaming, whiny 5 year olds playing Left for Dead and other games online, and its Microsoft points system. Its garbage.

Natal, NO. I dont want to flail my arms like an idiot. And by the way, this technology has been out for a long time. Just not in consoles. So, no, they didnt create something special. They just added it into a console.


testdawg   February 6th, 2010 4:29 am ET

I have had nothing but trouble with PS3s. First died 4 months after launch. Second a few months after that. New 'slim' had drive failure within 2 weeks, after watching only 2 BluRay movies.

However... I have an original 360 from Launch Day: ZERO problems. Never hangs. Never RRoDs. Every update installed flawlessly. Even a hard drive swap to the lager drive was smooth. XboxLive has never crashed or disconnected (unlike Sony) and it is virtually lag-free. I've always had problems with Sony products, from cameras to DVD players and car stereos. They have yet to impress me. I even went LG over Sony for my HDTV.


Josh   February 7th, 2010 5:04 pm ET

Natal....I just want to know how your supposed to move around in a game (walking, running, turning around) without running out of space in your room =P jog in place?! I bet the game would have to progress for you...very linear.... and how about firing a gun/weapon? Do you have to yell, "BANG!" every time you shoot? What about other people in the room... will it ignore them? There are things a controller can do that this is going to be limited on. I think the Wii has done a decent job thus far, and sony knows this. I think that's why they kept it pretty similar, and just improve apon what already works.


jetmechjason   February 8th, 2010 1:15 am ET

Hey, both systems are great, I have both as well. I do have to say though im not to happy with xbox's always breaking down and what not but they still are better online the playstation but like I said I have both and that makes me the winner


HI   March 13th, 2010 7:14 pm ET

I agree with some of you, but the new PS3 controller should be held off because in the mean time they can make new games, which will pump people up for the controller


Tone The Bone   April 29th, 2010 11:58 am ET

People who say that the Xbox 360 has superior graphics are clearly mistaken. If they knew how multiplatform games are developed and that PS3 exclusives look better than the Xbox 360 they would already know that the PS3 is far superior. I’m not going to lie. I love my PS3. My Xbox 360 is collecting dust because of the RROD! Now why the Xbox 360 has superior graphics most the time in multiplatform games. The game developers develop the games on the Xbox then ported to the Ps3 making the graphics downscale because the developers do not know how to develop on the PS3 skillfully. And for the person who said that MW2 on the PS3 looks like a PS2 game is a retard. :-)Get an HD TV

....PS3 is a lot better then the 360 in my opinion. the 360 doesnt have games anywhere near the quality of the PS3. An example being my favorite PS3 game, the newest FF or Final Fantasy.Which in the 360's case, takes 4 disks. Thats right 4 compared to the Ps3's 1 yes i mean 1 disk for it. Also, the PS3 has better graphics for all ghames the 360 has and more. I personaly think that the PS3 is a way, way better choice in many ways over the X-Box 360

I own both a PS3 and a 360 I play 360 more just because more of my friends have it but I like my PS3 more. I think MAG is better than Cod and my favorite game of all time is Resistance 1 and 2 I think the only game exclusivly on 360 worth playing is Halo. I think Natal will beat the wand controllers but I'm still looking forward to the wand controllers more then natal because I doubt natal will work as well as advertised.

sony online is garbage...it's over-run with hacks (that aren't fixed or regulated because sony online is free) and the sony glitches during regular game-play. I use to be a sony guy, but i got tired of dealing with a half-ass system that everyone thinks is awesome simply because it comes with a blu-ray player
