True. Since they're not identical, they can't be compared.


Except, oh yeah SONY and MICROSOFT have been comparing themselves to each other since day one. Oh, I forgot there is also Every Console Gaming Magazine Ever Printed. But other than that, sure you are absolutely correct.

I have spent 25 years designing software for a living, I can tell when an interface is elegant or clunky. Sure, the PS2 came out with a LOT of improvements after the Xbox was released (smaller, lighter), and long after I bought mine of course, but until the Xbox showed them up, they had no market driven reason to improve their machines for years.


Just because people compare them doesn't mean it is possible. I can have a great time comparing apples to oranges, but any sane person would say they are immposible to compare.

You can only look at which games appear on the console, since the hardware doesn't play a great role in most peoples choice.
It's the games, and both systems play different games (all inferior to Nintendo ofcourse) so your personal taste chooses which system you buy.

If all games were identical, I would totally agree with you. But since theyre not, comparing them is useless.
