If you had none of the next gen consoles and were given a choice to get any of them and 2 games which one would you choose. I know there is already a next-gen thread bu I just want a clear view of which one is everyones favourite. So which one and why?

PS3, because playstation has had the best games for a good while now. I'm no expert though, all I ever used my PS2 for was the Final Fantasy games.

but i can beef that up for less than £250

Sighhhhhh

Built in WiFi, Bluetooth, BluRay, free online, amazing hardware, Cell Broadband Engine, run Linux, will be able to play PC games next year... any idea what I voted? My games, ultimately would be MGS4 and FFXIII. But ones that are out now, Warhawk, and a tossup between Heavenly sword, Resistance, and Lair. And Folklore.. and motorstorm...
And if we're talking non exclusives, Assassins Creed and COD 4

Neither really - they're all too expensive and the gamin industry to a turn for the worst these last couple years - i recon there are only very few good games about now

but if you MUST buy em - buy the Wii - at least the controller's cool
#13
I don't have any of those. I'd take the PS3. Why? It's good. I'm quite partial to Playstation, really. Good games catalog, no "red ring of death", super powerful, comfy controller. It's expensive, too. Normally that's a bad thing, but if I'm offered a games console, why not take advantage of the situation?

The Wii is an inspired concept, but I doubt it'll last very long. There's only so much you can do by waving controllers in the air. Sure, there were plenty of games recently which needed specialised controllers (it all started with steering wheels and light guns, moving on to dance mats, microphones and guitars...), but if you look at the entire catalog, those are individual games in a collection of hundereds whcih work perfectly well with a normal controller.

The PS3 and XBox have gotten the most attention, but I think the X-Box gets it mainly due to Halo.

It'll get much cheaper soon.

I'm sure in less than a year, as they build up momentum, games will be half the price and they might even make a compact version (as they did with the first 2 playstations)

You shouldn't have said such things here.

If you're including PS1 and PS2, that's a different story... There are more PS2 games than people on this earth.

Seriously though, you're right. That's a big factor, and 60 bucks a game is outrageous.

None until the prices fall further.
When they do X-Box 360 for FPS and online play.

Elaborate on the 'worst games' part. Have you played any PS3 exclusives? For a good amount of time? I still stand by what I said about how you can't judge what you haven't played.

...but who the hell wants to play video games by themselves? xbox ftw.

i have a wii and a 360 and i'd say to get a 360
a ps3 is really just an overpriced 360 with better graphics AND less exclusive games
a wii gets boring after the first 5 months or so and the games out arent really too exciting
a 360 has good online stuff on it and good games and isnt as expensive as a ps3
yeahhh get one of them

Wrong. In a way. The PS3 is the cheapest BluRay player on the market. How much is the HDDVD addon? And of course it has less exclusive games, that's what happens when a console comes out a year later than another.
And the PS3 MIGHT have better graphics, but not really noticeable. It depends on developers.
Yep, the 360 of course has a better game library.
But the PS3 has better hardware. And PLENTY of ridiculously fun games.

If you get a Wii, House of the Dead 2/3 are getting released together soon, and you can once again, suffer like G did.

EEHEEHEEHEEHEE!!!

I love the HOTD games. Pretty much a guaranteed purchase when they come out, if only for the crap voice acting.

Lol, hell yes, that flying monkey thing was the best.
This is a hilarious video of the best voice acting moments from the last chapter:

And here's Chapter 1:

Oh my god, those were the days xD I must get this game again!

Thanks for the links mate
Yeah I got them all for the PC, bit easy with the mouse though

Steve you should really check out Typing of the Dead, that game rules. Instead of shooting the zombies with the mouse or whatever, you type these words to kill them instead. To kill the bosses you have to type out like whole limericks, lol Take THAT Mavis Beacon!

I heard about that game, but could never find a torrent that was being seeded long enough for it, as there are no games shops near that stock it, and I don't want to order online

Sounds class though, if I ever see a copy in the shops, I'll pick it up. I take it it only costs , like, a fiver or something.

Yeah I ordered it online a long time ago. It's in the Xplosiv range now I think, would be even cheaper than a fiver I reckon. Hell of a lot more fun than it sounds.


Oh, and ever played HOTD 3? I played it in the arcade, and it sucks. I just don't like a shotgun as a light gun!

This is what I expected. Furious competition between Wii & 360, PS3 nowhere to be seen. What a failure of a console.

360 definitely. The PS3 is too expensive, and nowhere near as many good games as the xbox. I see the appeal in the wii, but I just can't get into it at all.

Xbox 360. Halo 3 and Mass Effect are the big ones for me. Any other Bioware or Splinter Cell games are also quite exciting, and I've been playing Assassin's creed today, which seems pretty ace.

The PS3 doesnt seem to me to have that much going for it now that GTA is no longer playstation exclusive.
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name.
