Playstation 3 vs Xbox 360
The war of what gaming consoled is better has been debated for some time now since both of their releases. Both are so alike and different in so many ways with online gaming, movie, web browser, and more. With both the playstation 3 and the xbox 360 having so many features I feel that more of the playstations features are for me.
The home screens are very important with the systems and how you will navigate. Playstation 3’s home screen layout is basic but easy to navigate round with ease. It’s a simple line of pictures across the screen with your users, setting, games, movie, music, friends, photos, T.V. services and web. An advertisements bar at the top of the screen also scrolls with what new in the store. In these pictures you can move down with what you have added to them and select what you want and where you want to go. Xbox’s home screen is a little more detailed with several screens and a multi box look with bigger boxes and smaller boxes. When moving from screen to screen it has web, games, friends, movies, music, store and more but the one thing I don’t like about this is the advertisements on every page for movies and games.
The online feature is one of the best features both of these consoles have. Both require a high speed internet connection to access the online gaming. But the Playstation has a playstation network for free online play for gaming with a plus membership if desired for a fee of $49.99 a year or $17.99 for 3 months with that membership you get access to game betas, demos, and premium downloadable content for games. The membership is not required to play online which is a big plus for people because who wants to play video games alone? Also it has a very large amount of users online to play. Xbox has Xbox live and to play online. With live you have to buy a subscription to play online for a price of $60 a year or for $99.99 for a family of four...
