I'd want an Xbox 360 first, but since you already have one, then get a Wii for sure.

I want too get a 360 for Ace Combat 6!


That's the ONLY game you want a 360 for? Look at Gears of War (Obviously),Bioshock, Kane and Lynch, RE5, Halo 3, Crackdown, and countless others. Plus Transformers looks decent.

No way, Gears of War, Call of Duty, and a whole bunch of other games look awesome.. but Ace Combat is my favorite game series of all time.

Well , it depends, wii does offer many things.
Pros
Sick multiplayer (funner than normal in my experience)
PG games
Awesome motion capture controllers
Can mod chip and download all games.
More kinetic skill involved
Cons
When you're alone it's somewhat boring
PG games (:P goes both ways)
Not something you would play if you want to chill (as mentioned before)
Becomes repetitive.
Red steel.

I have a Wii, I like it a lot, it's actually my favorite out of the next gens.

The sports games are actually a lot of fun, but they do get boring if you play them all day. You don't really jump around while playing, you mainly just swing your arms. Get Twilight Princess for weeks of entertainment.

Wii suck dick. There are 3 good games for it 360 own! Ill trade my Wii for your 360 ;D I really wish i diddnt buy it. I played twilight princess then got bored and now i play like 1 or twice a month. THe issue is the lack of good games, or games in general for that matter. Its kinda like the DS, Not many good games, but the good ones are ****in amazing. Twilight Princess and Red Steel. Not worth buying, don't waste your money.

i have a wii and its a pretty good system. besides mario party 8 the only game that is extremely enjoyable is wii sports which comes with the system. im just waiting untill after the summer and around christmas when all the good games are coming out, such as mario galaxy and metroid prime 3 and all the EA sports 08. if i were you i would wait to get the wii untill the really nice games come out.

EDIT: yeah ssbb is going to be out of this world

I have Super Paper Mario and it's a great game. Mario Galaxy will be the awsome. Don't worry Wii will have great games in the future.

ive got a wii and although their shining point is their family friendly games and interactive controls there are also some great FPS(red steel)
#23
save the money, tell your girlfriend to suck your wii and play x box live. everyone wins. you have money, she gets her non violent games, and you can use your xbox.

I'll assume you're American and say DAMN YOU! Manhunt 2's been banned here in the UK. Sucks for us.

I own a Wii. There awesome. Really fun with lots of friends. There aren't really any good games other than Mario Party 8. But when games like Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime come out its gonna be wicked.

wii rocks man! the wife and i bought it at launch, and have been enjoying it tons. don't be fooled by the actors on TV tho.. you don't really move around THAT much when you play the wii. maybe for the wii sports.. but i mean.. it was designed to be that way. games like zelda.. or excitetruck, paper mario.. etc etc.. require only very small hand movements. never the need to jump around like an enraged monkey wildly swinging the wiimote around in a vain attempt to pitch a ball.

Dude... Zelda?

I don't actually own a Wii, although I have Twilight Princess for Gamecube. Best game ever made, as far as I'm concerned. Red Steel looks cool though, what with the all the katana and guns and Japanese hookers.

Completely forgot that was coming out. I knew there was a reason I got the Wii, aside from it being so good. But yeah, threadstarter, it's a great console, it's fun, and this is just me but I've never got bored of playing any games on it (I'm on my second time through Twilight Princess).

Wiis are a barrel of fun, whether you play video games regularly or not.

It's fresh and original. Don't bash it until you try it!

There seems to be a variety of games on it as well to please you.
