  1. Too bad, I wanted a PS3 >:)

  2. Hi Fleeb,

    of course Microsoft would not give away a PS3 hehehe :D

  3. PS3 sucks. Only Final Fantasy, Gran Turismo and Metal Gear Solid is good. Everything else sucks. BTW, the Xbox 360 IS more powerful than the PS3. Those stupid wanna-be noobs think “Wow! The PS3 has 7 3.2 ghz processors! The Xbox 360 only has 3 3.2 ghz processors! That sucks!”. The only person that sucks are the people who say that. Those idiots don’t even know that the PS3 only has 1 main processor carrying the cache therefore killing it bandwidth. The Xbox 360 has 3 main processors and has like 10 times more bandwidth than the PS3. Nice try to fool everyone Sony, but you always fail. Like the time before the launching of PS2. You lied about the PS2 specs. You said it can crunch over 100 million polygons a second. The truth is, it can only handle roughly 60 million polygons a second. Assholes. Liars!

    The cell processor that powers the ps3 is designed by IBM, which also designed the processor that powers the 360 (PowerPC) so if sony lies, then IBM lies, then it could also lied for its 360 chip…

    Second, I cannot exaclty compare the two right now because I HAVEN’T tried both yet, for comparison purposes. How did you know that one of those consoles suck? Theoretically?

  5. Xbox 360 ROCKS
    All other went down to shoe,
    when Xbox 360 was new.
    All other copanies were repeating,
    But Xbox 360 due to new graphics was compeating.
    All products were same,
    Xbox 360 realized its was the time to play the game.
    As everything went older & older,
    People got bolder & bolder,
    Xbox 360 is still the best holder(of games).
    Now we can say all other suck’s,
    Only Xbox 360 rocks.

  6. Thanks for some ther informative website. Where else may I get hat ttpe
    of information written in such an ideal method?
    I’ve a undertaking that I am simply now operating on, and I have been on the glance out for such info.
