Which isbetter? Microsoft’s Xbox 360 or Sony’s PlayStation 3? Let us be frank. This debate has noone-word answer. The fans of both products continue to find the best points within them andpitch them against each other.However, what we can say is that the Xbox is certainly a little more popular in the U.S,than PS3. The best feature of the PlayStation is that one can browse the internet on it. This issomething that Xbox is lacking. However, apart from this, the argument about which consoleoffers an overall better experience, goes on and on. Many will even point out some flaws withthe browsing facility, e.g. it can be hacked easily.Therefore, until there is any concrete development in the Xbox 360 vs. PS3 debate, we can saythat Xbox 360 has its own place with its fans and users.Author: Thomas 2/3
