Sf4 ps3 or xbox360


#1

I’m planning on buying a ps3 or xbox 360 only for sf4. I was wondering, which system online service is use by player of the northwest.


#2

I would say majority is 360? Maybe?

Quite a few PSNers, though.

I have both so meh.


#3

The majority of people have and use 360s.


#4

I believe EVO will be using the PS3 for HD Remix and SF4 if that means anything to you.


#5

in all due honesty as microsoft does require you to purchase and xbox live account to play online, i would imagine that their servers are better than sony’s free psn servers.

but i have the ps3 version.

:confused:


#6

I play on Live. I understand that both platforms have good support from players, though. In other words… I don’t think you can go wrong… but I know of more guys in the Northwest who play 360 only than PS3 only.

I think that SFIV only uses common servers for matchmaking… after that… it’s peer-to-peer. Definitely just speculation on that… but it’d be a lot cheaper for the devs… and a lot more effective for the players.


#7

I think there are more readily available converters for the PS3 than for the 360, so if you have older sticks, that may be something to consider.


#8

…That’s a great point I didn’t even think to consider. You win.


#9

Man my SFIV CE PS3 is still sealed…


#10

thank for the input.

Ps3 network is free, but the server suck? is that right


#11

I haven’t had too many issues with PSN. Bout as many as Live, to be honest.


#12

XBL is the only way to for online play. (no playstation hate here)


#13

The reasons I feel that PS3 is better then 360 for SF4 are:

  1. PSN is free and works the same as XBL for SF4
  2. PS3 controllers are better then 360 controllers
  3. I dont have enough money to buy a fight stick or fight pad while also paying for XBL

Mostly money related issues for me but eh I work retail I’m broke lol


#14

+1 more for PSN. Haven’t experienced any problems thus far, so I’d definitely recommend it.


#15

I would say get a 360 also, so you can play a match while you are waiting for your PS3 to get past the loading screen.


#16

It’s not that bad.


#17

I think the last time I fought about which console was better I was on the school bus in 5th grade.


#18

Everyone should get a Genesis. It’s got all the best sports games, and ‘blast processing’, which makes Sonic look 2x better than Mario Kart. SNES is for babies.

Wait, what was the question again?


#19

HIYOOOO

hahaha

also i’m confused about not getting a 360 because of money reasons but whatever

Here is very long video to show you the differences between the X-Box and PS3 graphically.

Cliffnotes- There are none. They are about 99.9% the same.
