The console wars continue to rage on. Ever since the PlayStation 3 arrived on the market to challenge the Xbox 360 in 2006, gamers have argued about the merits of each system. Even as console-exclusive game titles have become less and less common, gamers remain convinced that their system of choice is the superior one.
We've decided to examine the war from a technical perspective, comparing which system sports more power under the hood and which offers a superior set of features. We've broken the console war into ten technical categories, including CPU, GPU, hard drives and so on.
In the end, only one system can emerge victorious.
This throwdown is based on the most recent versions of both consoles – the 'Slim' variations of both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, disregarding previous feature sets.
