Comment on PS3 Outsells Xbox 360 by Anonymous:

To have repaired lot of xbox 360, I can say that it is a console build to break after a while. The way it is made inside, the heat can only accumulate after a while and with accumulating stress in the motherboard you get all kind of failure.

In any case, the truth is that consoles are just retarded computers. To get the same CPU/GPU/Memory than a console you will most likely pay less. The only advantage that console have is dedicated OS, which we will have soon have on pc with Steam’s Big Picture or more generally with more support on the Linux operating system (I mean Windows is really outrageously eating too much resources.)

Another reason why all consoles are bad is, as stated above, security. And also, the closeness of the console. I mean, how can you make a system so close in the name of security but not update your Apache server and lose the billing information of your customers?

Finally, the restrictions the compagnies behind the consoles put on game developers is bad for the quality of the softwares. And this is without accounting for the hardware limitations of the console themselves: you don’t have a lot of memory to program in there! (Don’t wonder why too many games have so much loading screen!)

    Mine already exploded, it lasted 6 years tough, in that time i had 3, count them 3! xboxes, and i KNOW that im not alone in this, so even whit rampaging rrods on the xbox side, PS3 managed to beat them in sales, good for them, (i had one of the original 600 dollars 80 gig PS3s with full backwars compatibility and the cool card reader on the front, it YLOD a couple of months ago… so sad, the slim ones are so tiny and ugly in comparison)

    It is only a matter of politics. Here in Brazil we pay a minimum of 87% tax on any electronics imports. M$ is the only one with the $$$ to afford producing it here, since they have big $$$ to spend. A retail, barebones PS3 costs now 20-jan-2013 about US$ 685. For this insane price tag you can buy two x360 barebones or one premium with 04 games and 03 months gold membership, since four games cost the …

    Brazil is the only country of South America that XBOX 360 is the leader. They have a strong support for the console and have a fantastic install base. Other countries even with the pirated 360 are not Xbox dominated. You got your numbers bad about Chile, sum up Zmart and the rest of the retailers and PS3 is largely above any other. Bluray is a big reason but anyways. Also in Argentina the rate of PS3 againt Xbox is almost 8 to 1 in favor of PS3. Countries like Paraguay and Peru have more PS3 …
