    Yes, the PS3's graphic potential [1080p] is greater than that of the Xbox 360 [720p] or the Nintendo Wii [480p].

    The PS3's online system is free, but don't expect it to be as user-friendly as Xbox Live.

    I was pondering that because I had heard someone mention it before. Then what makes the PS3 unanimously thought as having better graphics?

    No idea lol
    Maybe the thought of it costing more = better graphics. But im pretty sure there around the same.

    The ps3 does have better graphics because it has cell proccer.The online is great but not as good as the 360,but what can you expect for free.To be honest I owned Ps3 and 360 and i enjoy my PS3 more.

    Let me first say that BD (Blueray) doesn't factor in +directly+.

    Without getting into a complex technical discussion, let me see if I can answer this. When you say "graphics" there are several components of this that affect the overall graphic presentation.

    When you're running around in a 3D world (like Halo or Assassin's Creed) there are several things that affect what you experience:

    Framerate/Performance/Speed

    This is how fast the world is rendered - if everything slows down when there are more characters on screen, or when you enter an area with complex graphics (like lanterns, buildings, flags blowing, etc.) the experience (that's being simulated) is lessened.

    Resolution

    The higher the resolution the more details can be rendered into the images/frames - higher resolution also reduces the "jaggies" on hard edges. The concept of anti-aliasing allows the system to blend the hard edges using gradual color changes so the effect is reduced! Anti-aliasing costs some performance.

    Textures/Effects/Physics

    This is a complex section that I sort of just combined for brevity - basically this is the final visual presentation of the rendered world you see - simple 3D models are shaded and finalized using something called texture maps. Think of like the old computer graphics where every surface is a solid color - that's without texture mapping. In the real world (and modern videogames) the surface of something like your arm (or your character's arm) has lots of varied color and material and things like hair and different level of reflection (your watch is might be super reflective, your arm dull).

    Think of how light works in the real world - it reflects off of water, it partially shows through sheer materials. Same thing for something like smoke or snow which is thousands of small particles. How each of those react in a computer simulated world with wind, light, gravity, etc., changes the depth of your experience.

    Whew! OK, how a videogame console is able to deal with those various elements is sort of what we call collectively "graphics".

    So when people say something very broad like "the PS3 has better graphics" - what they're suggesting is the PS3 can handle one or more of the following better: effects, physics, framerate, textures, etc.

    If a system can generate more effects and physics and texture detail while* sustaining 1080p @ 60 frames-per-second - we say the graphics are better.

    Hope that helps (and I didn't get too technical!)
