In today’s times, there are three giants dominating the video game industry. These three are Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony and they are constantly at war with one another ever since gaming consoles were invented, i.e. when they were heavy boxes with a really bad graphics quality. However with the passage of time, these three giant brands have managed to produce impressive and state-of-the-art consoles that are not only affordable but it also allows the players to have a great time. Although the battle is between the three, i.e. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo but the actual battle is between the two stronger companies namely Sony and Microsoft and both of them are vying for the spotlight to dominate the video game industry.
The first thing that comes to the mind when one thinks about gaming consoles and Microsoft is the Xbox. Likewise when one thinks about gaming consoles offered by Sony, Playstation automatically crops up in one’s mind. The original gaming console produced by Microsoft was the Xbox and it wasn’t very popular when it was released. However Microsoft managed to switch up its game and it came out with Xbox 360, which was widely accepted by people all over the world. In fact people weren’t able to believe that the Xbox 360 was manufactured by the same company who manufactured the Xbox because the former was just so much better than its predecessor. Xbox 360 comes with a new generation console, absolutely stunning graphics, super impressive and super fast processors to name just a few of its plus points.
Next is the Playstation or PS as it is popularly known. Playstation 2 was first released some time in March in the year 2000. Soon after it was released, it became an extremely popular product and it also gained the reputation of being the most selling console of the current generation. During the first week after Playstation was released, more than 900,000 units were sold successfully. The ability to play DVD drives in Playstation was like the cherry on the cake.
So which is better – Sony Playstation or Microsoft Xbox 360? Well, in terms of graphics Xbox 360 takes the crown but Sony PS 3 is far ahead in terms of the variety in games. Sony PS 3 offered a plethora of games which managed to capture the attention of gamers and these were also successful in retaining their attention. If you were to pick one of the two then it would be a really hard task because both of them are fully loaded tech-gadgets which are quite impressive in their own ways and both are giving away free PSN codes or Xbox live codes to lure new clients in.
