Big win for XBOX
PS3: Tekken 5
We'll call that one a tie, although personally I'm not a big fan of the Tekken series.
One for PS3
PS3: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
or Ratchet & Clank
Win for XBOX
PS3 40Gb: $AUD699
XBOX 20Gb: $AUD549
Definite win for XBOX
PS3: Officially yes, but no GPU access.
XBOX: Officially no. Software hack exists for specific kernel versions.
Win for PS3
Sony: Secretly installed rootkits
on customers' computers (not noticeably punished for it).
Microsoft: Convicted monopolist
(not noticeably punished for it).
Hmm, tied again.
Looks like the xbox is ahead at the moment...
In unrelated news, Super Mario Galaxy
is awesomely great
. Although not part of this comparison it's interesting to note that the Wii has 94 exclusives out of 135 total titles (69.6%) tracking closely with the xbox, but has fewer top-ranked uniques - 19 (20.2%) at 75% and only 6 (6.38%) at 85% or better. In keeping with tradition, 6 of the top 10 are first-party Nintendo product.
FWIW: On a non-exclusive basis, 15 titles are XBOX/WII, 51 titles are PS3/XBOX, and 26 titles are fully cross-platform. There are no titles at all that are PS3/WII.
