On the other hand, the XBOX 360 is said to be the second home video game console made by Microsoft. The XBOX 360 model has also a successor called the XBOX also manufactured by Microsoft but is categorised as a sixth generation console. The XBOX 360 was sold in all regions except Japan due to rivalry with Sony Play Station 3. Unlike the PS3 some of the features of the XBOX 360 are the integrated XBOX Live which allows players from around the world to communicate and compete online. XBOX 360 media supports are very limited compared to the Play Station 3 with DVD, compact disc, downloadable add-on contents. XBOX 360 has a CPU which runs at 3.2 GHz PowerPC Tri-Core Xenon with detachable Hard drives with different sizes ranging from 20GB to 250 GB. XBOX 360 supports removable memory cards, On board storage chip and USB storage device which requires system software update. As for graphics the XBOX 360 uses 500 MHz ATI Xenons which is not as great as the Play Stations own.
XBOX 360 is said to be quite loud while a game disc is operating and to get or play online will cost money. Unlike any other, the XBOX 360 has a high chance of breaking known by the well known Red Ring of death. At times the XBOX may last for up to 3 – 4 months and sometimes can go even longer depending on how well you take care. The Play Station 3 while the disc is operating it does not make loud noises and the the discs are all Blu-ray for a high definition which competes with HD (High Definition) DVD format. The Chances of breakdown is very low comparing to XBOX 360 and free online play!
PS3 vs XBOX 360, both being the top two their systems overheat and support the highest definition. It is said to prevent from overheating, do not place it in limited fresh air areas (cabinets, behind a TV etc.) or buy an air cooler. PS3 vs XBOX 360 both are truly great.
I personally like the XBOX 360 but i always been a fan and a Play Station lover.
