In the past day, iTunes hasn't crashed on me!

I never used iTunes. Why? Because I never needed it. But I laughed really hard once I heard about the problems that iTunes 7 has.

I hope you're being sarcastic. Because no one in here has stated that th Zune actually blows besides drumthrasher.

Anyway, alvino....the PS3 doesn't have more cores. It's a single cored processor, whilst the 360 has 3 actual processing cores. Really, the only thing you're paying for in a PS3 is the blueray drive. Otherwise, the gaming machine is pretty inferior. I HAS 256 MB RAM FOR GOD's SAKE!!!

Just quit talking. Seriously. You're beyond the brink of annoying.

Well the Cell has one general processing core, but the 7 SPE cores are in essence real processors. It just needs directions in order for it to work, which is why developers have such a pain developing games for the PS3.

The RAM is also different. There is 256MB of XDR RAM for the system and 256MB of GDDR3 for the RSX graphics chip. Sony basically pre-assigned the amount. Compared to the Xbox 360 where it's just 512MB of GDDR3 and Microsoft lets developers partition the amount of RAM they need for the components when they want it or need it, meaning it's more flexible.

Yes, and the 360 has a 256 MB graphics card in it too. To me, that 'Cell' means absolute crap. To be honest, like I said, you're only paying for the blue-ray drive.

Actually, the Xbox 360's Xenos GPU uses the same 512MB GDDR3 memory as the rest of the console does. Microsoft just made it unified so developers could partition it according to their needs. The CPU and GPU share the RAM though.

As for the Cell, it's actually really powerful if you know how to work with it and use it. Right now PS3 games look about the same, if not worse compared to Xbox 360 games, but wait another year or two and you'll see the PS3's power in full blast.

Hard to say. On paper, the PS3 is superior, but in terms of actual games, both are about equal. The PS3 will have it's advantages and the Xbox 360 will have its own advantages.
