    They're about the same in some way or another. Is what I have gathered. Depends who is talking. Someone who actually knows. A PS3 fan boy or a 360 fanboy.

    The tech talk is like Chinese to me.

    Let me preface with;

    I love my 360 for gaming. I do also watch HD DVD on it as well.

    I love my PS3 for other reasons but the fact that it plays games and that there are going to be some great games coming out eventually is only a plus.

    PS3 has a superior CPU
    360 has a superior GPU
    360 has 512mb ram that is shared by its components.
    PS3 has 256 + 256mb of dedicated ram for the GPU and CPU which does not really equate to 512 since this memory cannot be shared by its components like the 360 can.
    PS3 has Blu Ray for games
    360 has DVD for games

    Other than the Blu Ray/DVD thing, this is why 360 games thus far are looking better and running better on the 360 than the PS3.

    Now, when ever developers really figure out how to properly use the cell processor on the PS3 they should be able to overcome its GPU and memory shortcomings. The extra storage space on Bly Ray also helps the PS3.

    Both consoles have strengths and weaknesses. I do know one thing, the PS3 is not that much greater than the 360 like the Sony hype machine led many to believe.

    I really think that when the PS3 starts to really flex its muscles we will hear talk from MS about the next Xbox.

    I say "Bring it on!!"
