I think that Xbox is best system to be made yet. First round is acceptance AND argument against. I think that the Xbox has much better quality than the PS3. You might have to pay to go online, but it hasnt gone down to hackers yet because it is secure. Also online game play is better and easier to get around. it is more labled than PS3 and explains alot more. Also your credit details are safe and dont get lost.

PS3 is much better than the XBOX 360

First off the PS3's CPU is much stronger, while they have similar processors the PS3 has 7 single threaded cores compared the the 360's 3 dual threaded cores. The PS3 runs at 230 GFlops compared to 77 GFlops for the XBOX 360 which is almost 3 times faster.

The PS3 also has much better RAM, it runs faster (3.2 GHz compared to 700 MHz) and has 3.2 more Gbps bandwidth.

The PS3's hard drive is larger (320 GB compared to 250 GB)

The PS3 also doubles as a Blu-Ray DVD player while the 360 doesn't

Now going to your arguments, YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR ONLINE what's the difference between the 360 online and the PS3 online you both end up playing other people the only difference is that the PS3's service is free. Also the whole hacking argument really annoys me because here is the thing the 360 could have been hacked too why wasn't it? Because the hackers didn't attempt to do it. Plus after the hack Sony did a good job of paying their product owners back for a service they don't pay for (They gave two free full games per each account, and gave them free access for a month for the payed service playstation offers.)

Overall the PS3 is a much better system

The xbox is better i think becasue when i had a PS3 it ook me a longer time to connect to the internet to play with people. I also feel that the conterole feels more comfy in my hand for the xbox. it has a bit of weight and is perfectley curved for every type of hand to fit into it. the PS3 has shorter holing ares making bigger hands (like mine) to keep on slipping.

Okay fine. So the controller is better in your opinion, but does that actually make the system? If there was a system with the most perfect controller in the world, but had graphics worse than pong, ran extremely slow, and was just flat out painful to play do you really think that is a good system? What I'm trying to say is that the controller doesn't make the system. Sure, the Xbox 360 might have a better controller, but it doesn't matter, it's just a minor aesthetic detail in the overall picture.

Also, while the Xbox 360 might connect faster, the PS3 has a free internet service provider which performs at an even level and does the exact same thing as the 360

But the Xbox has still sold more than the ps3. And even some really popular games like halo is currently only available on the Xbox. The PS3 is better but comes at a higher cost than the Xbox. But Xbox live will still be alot of money 1 year around so in the length PS3 is better like that but you do not have to pay for Xbox live and can enoy the many single player modes of Halo.

Like my opponent said, "The PS3 is better but comes at a higher cost...but Xbox live will...be alot of money 1 year around so in the length PS3 is better..."

The only argument in the last round my opponent didn't make for me was that XBOX has Halo as an exclusive game. Call of Duty which is available for either systems is almost as good if not better, while the PS3 has exclusive games that cannot be rivaled by its closest competition (MLB the Show)

There are more games available for xbox than PS3 and people are offered a wider selection. I also found prices for addons just slightly cheaper. Good debate.

The slightly higher add-on prices for the PS3 make up for the free online connection. Even with the prices being higher the Xbox 360 will cost more in the long run for the same service.

To counter your more games available argument all of these games are available exclusively for PS3 God of War 3, Heavy Rain,Resistance 3,Gran Turismo 5,The Last Guardian,Killzone 3, ModNation Racers, MAG, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, The Agency, Agent, Uncharted 1/2,LittleBigPlanet, Singstar, MGS 4, Killzone 2, Resistance 1/2, and the God of War Collection. While the Xbox has Alan Wake, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Fable III, Halo Reach, CrackDown 2, Gears of War 3,Portal 2 exclusively. By my count thats 18 games exclusively for PS3 and 7 games exclusively for Xbox 360

Thanks for the debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Its tough for me to vote con here as I actually agree with Pro that the Xbox360 is better. Con however argued much better, and Pro even seems to concede the argument in rnd 3 with "Ps3 is better, but..", which con effectively responds to.
