In order to decide which is better, Xbox 360 or PS3, we will have to take some of their prominent features into consideration. The Cell engine (microprocessor chip) in PS3 is more capable than Xbox's triple-core Xenon CPU. But the performance of these video game consoles also depends on the graphics processing unit (GPU) to a great extent. Taking that into consideration, Xbox 360, armed with Xenos GPU is far more superior than PS3 armed with RSX GPU .The primary storage medium in PS3 is the Blu-ray Disc, with a storing capacity of approximately, 54 gigs, while the storage medium in Microsoft Xbox 360consists of double layer DVDs, with a storing capacity of 9 gigs. In addition to this, both these gaming consoles also, come with a hard disk drive which enables users to store more games on the console. Storage medium becomes an important factor, due to on-line game purchasing capabilities of both console manufacturers. Also, more memory ensures that the saved game data does not become a hindrance while downloading games both the Xbox 360, as well as the PS3 have their own pros and cons. Xbox 360 does have a slight edge, in this case, as price might end up being a major deterrent in terms of the PS3. While it is very difficult to choose which is better, the PS3 or Xbox 360, hardcore gamers will prefer the Xbox 360, while people looking for an all round entertainment device might be happier with the PS3.
