That comparison is BS. It does not have detailed info on either platform (mostly because detailed info is not public). You cannot make a useful comparison without either detailed info or real-world workloads. Those graphs are all using purely theoretical numbers released for marketing reasons that don't tell us anything useful about real-world performance.

i think ms made it to try and stop the sony hypemachine..because your right, detailed info on real world work load's isnt available, but sony tried to make it seem like it was.

probably the one thing in there that is true, and is a good point is about the cell cpu vs the ppc cpu comparison, not so much the flop count, but how they work and the plus and neg about them...

but oh well...this is probably the best we have so far though so...

I am not really a fan of playstation or xbox however I was forced to get a PS2 for MGS3, however I think this is a very biased article. I won't be considering this for future gaming decisions thats for sure.

How were you forced to buy a console for a game? Did Sony reps hold you at gunpoint and make you buy a PS2?

MS doesn't need to fight. Gates's army of nanomachines merely spawns whatever technology is doing well on Earth 630614SA.
