Wow! I'm an Xbox supporter without ever owning a console in my life!Originally Posted by maritimus831
Type "PS3 pre-rendered E3" into Google and you see tons of comments, some threads like this and a few others. Sony admitted that they were pre-rendered.
Oh please! You expect to read anti-Sony, pro-MS articles on PSM? I might as well expect to read Canon praising Olympus! Read about how complex multi-threading for games at Ars Technica, page 4 comments by John Carmack andnot easy to program games to PS3 than XBOX360? you must be kidding...have u read gaming industry magazines like EDGE? or PSM? developers have commented that it is easier to program games for PS3
i quote PSM:
"people are finding that the 360 has some stupid bottlenecks"
"both are friendly, but the PS3 may actually be friendlier [to program software to]"
page 5 describing how PS3 is more complex
Lets put in another factor: MS has been producing programming tools even before 1980 (1975 IIRC); in fact, they started out earning money by making programming tools (not OS which would come later). They are acknowledged to be the top few if not the top programming tool builder in the software industry. Sony on the other hand, does not have the experience. Their core competency is consumer electronics. Who would have better tools for the programmers?
In any case, XBox 360 will be out in US in 7 days with 18 games. The prices are already fixed. PS3 is still unannounced for both prices and release dates, but do not expect a launch in 6 months nor less than US$449 (Blu-Ray drives are expensive).
