360, PS3 is good if you're a total cunt, and the Wii is good if you're a 43 year old parent looking for a disappointing Christmas present for your kid.


I'm sorry. Inner 360 fanboy.

Get a Wii with Metroid Prime 3. You won't be disappointed. Plus, in a couple of months, you have Gutiar Hero 3, Mario Galaxy, and Super Smash Brothers Brawl coming out. Get a Wii, you won;t regret it.

I hate the PS3, its overpriced and doesn't have any great exclusives. And for the 360, the heat sink on it is misplaced, so it will eventually overheat, unless you buy a special fan.

360 for now, then save up for the PS3, by which time it'll be cheaper and have a better game selection.

That's what I'm doing.

Don't spout logic and level-headed thinking here. It's obscene.

Right now though, in all seriousness, the Wii.

PS3. Blue ray will win. PS3 is dead silent. Free online play, the online play is great, too. Warhawk is ill, and comes with a sweet bluetooth headset. It's getting so many great games this year. If you can still get the 60 gig one, it's 500, but they're running out cause sony upped it to 80. It can run at 190 degrees F, or 0 degrees. Sixaxis rocks.

Some people prefer sweet graphics and more... mature kind of games. I'm not saying the wii is all about mario, but you know what i mean. Aaannddd I've played both, and I think the sixaxis controller kills the 'wiimote'

Lol, never seen a BluRay movie have you?

I have a 64 inch HD TV, and the change is significant. BluRay player, not a PS3.

Read the bit near the bottom. The BluRay is absolutely superior in all aspects, except three (and possibly four if you consider hardcoating bad).

HD-DVD has been dropped by a number of leading stores in the UK at least, simply because it's not competing. Last time i checked, becuse of the PS3s influence, Blu-Ray players were outselling HD-DVD players 15 to 1.

And to be honest, the 360 has better games right now, but if you don't want to be constantly swapping it or worrying when its going to do the inevetable and have a DVD drive, Hard drive or heatsink failure, i would get a PS3.

To be quite honest, most of the arguments that 360 fanboys bring against it haven't been true for a long time, but one this that is true is that it still has a hefty price tag (although IMO its well worth the money for what you get, since to get everything for the Xbox to bring it up to par would cost at least the same, if not more).

Try both out at your local gaming store if you can, and see what you think. Its your money after all.

Wii is pretty cool. I'm planning to get one pretty soon once I finally get off my ass and order my rig. ANd I'll probably wait until brawl comes out so I can get a bundle pack. The 360 also looks very tempting, plenty of decent games out already and several more to come in the not-too-distant future.

The PS3 though, it's just too expensive to ever be a contender for me. What does it do? What incredible games warrant the enormous price tag? I've often asked myself this. I've got to the point where AMAZING GRAPHICS are just boring to me. Graphics are the last thing on my mind when I go to buy a game, and I'm sick of developers and fellow gamers telling me different.

Though saying all this, I haven't really played a good video game in over two years, so my opinion is probably pretty dated.

Just look at LittleBigPlanet and tell me that game will not be an instant classic in the lane of Mario or Sonic.

When that game comes out is when I'll have a PS3.

i have a ps3 and its okay. the game selection sucks though but in a few months there will be loads of amazing games coming out. its good though, i deffinitely prefer it to a 360. my friend has the xbox and it didnt do anythng for me, i thought it was just a better ps2 as opposed to a next generation games console.

my brother has a wii, its okay. the games on it are fun and when you have people around, its the best console out there by miles. on your own though, it isnt as good.
#35
It's very hard to choose between the 360 and PS3 now, things are finally getting started, they're really toe to toe now.

The Wii long fell behind. The ****ty gimmick console with a controller that gets boring and annoying after 10 minutes, the same old recycled Nintendo games, piles of casual gaming **** and no third party support.

The Wii is like videogaming's MTV, it's good if you're ok with a quick and cheap fix of gaming.
#36
As much as I come across as a raging Sony fanboy (was raised on it, what can I say), I hate to be labelled as that.

I do dig the Xbox, it's a faulty piece of **** hardware, but it has some nice games. Bioshock, Dead Rising (Level 50, beat Brock, still playing it. Killing zombies has never kicked so much ass), Gears of War is great. Lost Planet, eh, I always saw it as a pretty blatant rip-off of Zone of the Enders.

Ps3

Nuff said
But there's no sense crying over every mistake, you just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

#38
you see, here is the problem

wii- new controll system but with limited games

ps3- looks and plays like a dream but is amazingly overpriced

360- looks ok on paper, but is likely to over heat. i am of course talking, ABOUT THE RED RING OF DEATH!

so each one has pro's and cons. me, i would like to get a 360 at some point but i have no regrets about buying the wii

I don't know, I don't exactly see what the 360 and the PS3 are doing that's any different from the previous generation. That, to me, is boring.
