Xbox 360 vs. PlayStation 3: Five years on
In November 2006, the Sony PlayStation 3 squared off against Microsoft's Xbox 360 for the very first time.

In the past half-decade, the gaming landscape has changed considerably. Both consoles have undergone several hardware refreshes and provided new services and peripherals. They have also generated controversies, such as the Xbox 360's Red Ring of Death and Sony's PSN hacking scandal. As we near the PS3's five year anniversary, we thought the time was ripe to reassess both consoles. Read on to see how the two platforms compare today.
