Hate to say that but, the look of PS3 pwn the X360 *xtimes. Except maybe for the pads.

The X360 is ugly as hell. PS3 looks pretty sleek, but I don't like that controller..

That controller is ugly as heck. I'll go and use it as a boomerang when hunting kangaroo.

That doesn't add up. I smell something fishy... Good thing E3 starts tomorrow and this will most likely be cleared up. I don't see how Cell can jump from 256GFLOPS peak performance @ 4.0GHz to 2.18TFLOPS @ 3.2GHz. That's almost 10x the performance with a *drop* in clockspeed. Whatever happened to PS3 supposedly having 3 or 4 Cells in it?
Bah, I'll wait until tomorrow for more...

Who cares how they look? Do you really think that hot girl down the road is ignoring you based on what your game consoles look like?

1. Wrong forum
2. CLosed seeing that theres already a dozen threads.

PS: THeres no reason to post "in case you dont visit yadda yadda forums." If one is too lazy to travel outside to other forums, well too bad. No need to clutter the other forums. Their misfortune.

Thanks.
