Xbox 360 vs. PS3 Which is stronger?

Gamers all over the world are rushing to the stores this Christmas to purchase one of the 'next-generation' of gaming consoles. The big question is which console is stronger? The Floater Blog takes an in depth look at the two big systems: The Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.

The performance of these consoles has been looked at a number of ways but we here at the Floater Blog felt the best benchmark would be to compare the strength of the two consoles. The results will surprise you.



The Xbox 360 easily holds seventy pounds while the PS3 looks on with obvious Jealousy.

Hold: The first test was simply to see how much weight they could hold. While it seemed the PS3 with it's wider stance would dominate this category, its cheap plastic crumbled under only 56 pounds while the Xbox 360 easily lifted and held 70 pounds.
Advantage: Xbox 360

The Tractor Pull: For this test we attached a 3.5 inch airplane cable to one end of a tractor trailer and the other end to the console. The results were very poor. Neither the Xbox 360 nor the Playstation 3 managed to move the Tractor at all. In fact both consoles just sat there, impervious to the crowds cheering them on, until the time expired.
Advantage: None

The Weight Catch: A popular test on the World's Strongest Man series, we would throw medicine balls with increasing weight at the competitors and whoever could catch and hold the heaviest ball would win. To be frank, both consoles were terrible at this competition. Starting with only a 55 pound medicine ball the Xbox 360 cracked under the pressure and literally blew apart. It did not appear to even attempt to catch the ball. The PS3 fared marginally better, as it too cracked under the lightest of medicine balls. However, the PS3 managed to cup and hold the ball with the inside of it's outer shell casing thus completing 1 catch.
Advantage: PS3

Tug O' War:
Using a standard 10 stone Mariners Rope each console would attempt to pull the other console over the winner's line. This test of strength quickly became a test of endurance as neither console was able to gain an immediate advantage. In fact each console managed to hold their exact starting positions for a whopping 6 days, 12 hours and 13 minutes before the competition was declared a tie. The mathematical probability of two competitors in this competition facing off with an absolutely even matched pull strength is astronomical but for the two competitors to also posses the exact same incredible endurance is just unreal. We truly witnessed something special and all of us who were there will certainly never forget those exciting six and a half days.
Advantage: None.

The Stronger Console: None.
Our empirical evidence proves that neither console is over matched. There have been many reports claiming that one console is stronger than the other but we can say, without a doubt, that those reports are blatantly false. If you are looking to purchase one of these consoles we would recommend first asking yourself what is more important to you: Holding heavy weights or being able to catch heavy balls? And make a choice based on our results. If, instead, you're looking at tractor pulling or tug o' wars there is no clear advantage either way. Sony and Microsoft have fought hard for your money but this test just goes to show, once again, that it all comes down to personal preference.

Nintendo wii beats both of them.

goldennib said...

When choosing I tried count how many of each were stolen in parking lots during their debuts. Unfortunately, many people did not want to admit they waited in line for six days without bathing and then were so tired they gave up their prizes without a fight. So this was not a very good test either.

Tom said...

And the Sega Dreamcast sits in the corner and cries for what might have been.

Alastair P. Forbes said...

Anonymous: you make a fair point but we felt that the Wii wasn't worth testing because of Nintendo's poor record in the tractor pull in the past.

Goldennib: I see your quagmire. Truly a perfect litmus test for the machines yet the test subjects won't give up the booty (The informational booty, that is). Did you try mugging them for the information?

Tom: Quite observant of you. Dreamcast was one of our original test subjects but the other two consoles just laughed at him so in the end all he would do is rock back and forth while whimpering. We felt it best to leave him off the ballot then...

Diesel said...

I did a similar round of tests with frequent users of these systems, and the results were strikingly similar.

Dan said...

I did my own test to see which was stronger. I ground both of them up into a freebase powder and then injected them directly into my vein.

The Xbox 360 had me hallucinating for about 4 hours. The PS3, on the other hand, not only had me hallucinating, but also wearing women's underwear for nearly 3 days.

By the way, I noticed you added my blog to your blog roll. Thanks dude! I didn't know you cared (grabbing for a Kleenex ...). I did the same for you. ;)

Alastair P. Forbes said...

Diesel: I'd have to say you're just about spot on there. Holding 50-70 pounds max, not being able to pull a tractor and breaking into pieces when trying to catch a medicine ball. That's pretty much my life in a nutshell.

Dan: I'm so glad you had the courage to go through with that test. We were planning on doing that next but no one was willing to freebase.
We'd have to concur with you though, and say that the PS3 is the better machine. Women's clothing! That rocks!

Anita @ Say No to Crack said...

OH WOW ... this is too funny. I'd love to see the tractor pull.

Entertaining Polls said...

Wii is going strong, based on recent online poll, Wii is leading the pack, leaving xbox 360 and Playstation 3 for 2nd and 3rd. Apparently, people enjoy the wii unique controllers and reasonable price as opposed to Xbox 360 and PS3 High-Definition features of the other 2.

See for yourself: Wii VS Xbox 360 VS PlayStation 3

The white is very perky.

Alastair P. Forbes said...

Thanks... as soon as I have some time I plan to spruce it up a little... and I'm late!! I missed Friday's printing deadline... but it's only because I had to stop the presses because there is such a good story coming up. So be prepared for it... later on today or tomorrow!

(Note to self: Come up with good story)

goldennib said...

Don't get me too excited if you are not going to deliver.

My friend has a playstation 3 and another one of my friends games got stuck in the system. How do you get the disk out? It won't eject the disk no matter what and of coarse, it won't let any other disks come in. How do you lift the cover or even get the disk out? Nothing came up on the playstation website so please give me lots of info.

What could happen? If my firewalls are on I get kicked off the server during gameplay if I even get in at all. On the Playstation Site they say to enter port numbers but I may have did that wrong so I just take them off completely but only when I play online. Help?

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
