The console gaming wars have been going on for some time now, and there are two major brands that gamers have to face off with. Sure, there is a third option, but die-hard gamers do not count the third, they consider the top draws the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. The two major gaming options are the second and third incarnations of their respective brands and they both offer some high end gaming capabilities, but when it comes to a side by side comparison, it’s obvious that the PS3 has a heads up in a lot of ways. In fact, there are three major reasons why the Sony gaming console trumps Microsoft with relative ease.

The first thing to understand about the Playstation 3 is that the controller is familiar and already proven to be responsive and high quality. Sony has tweaked their previous controllers with slight responsive options and creates a controller that is form fitting, and doesn’t need much else but two hands to get into the action. With the dual analog sticks, four face buttons, the d-pad and four top buttons, the controller works amazingly well for all games, including fighters, shooters, and even first person gaming. Meanwhile the Microsoft brand is still having problems with their oversized, undersized, and overall lackluster controller that has been changed so many times, that gamers are starting to get tired of upgrades, downgrades, and third party peripherals.

The second major reason that the Playstation trumps the latest from Microsoft is new technology. What new technology? Blu Ray. The latest in high definition movies and sounds come shining through with ease on the PS3 and that’s something that the Xbox cannot boast at all. It’s interesting to see people argue about this online, because some feel that the Blu Ray technology isn’t all that its cracked up to be. Even the harshest skeptic can be turned into a believer with a spin of the high definition movie capabilities found on the Sony product. If nothing else, the fact that the console plays high definition movies outshines anything offered by Microsoft with relative ease.

Lastly, the Internet connectivity through the Playstation Network is brilliant. No one can deny that the online gaming capabilities introduced by Sony has been quite good, and some dare say better than Microsoft. Not only has there been more online functionality, more games, and greater ease of connectivity, but also the security of the Internet gaming world has been completely updated with all new protection for skeptical users.

The aforementioned reasons are just three of the main reasons why Playstation trumps the product being heralded as the best from Microsoft. Even though many gamers like playing Halo, one game does not make a console great, and Sony has made sure of that by pumping out award winning games, high definition movie capabilities, and so much more. Without a shadow of a doubt, the world of PS3 is far brighter, and more beautiful than anything offered by either rival in the video game industry today.
