PS3, Xbox 360 or Wii ????

what are you going for?

PS3:



Xbox 360:



Wii:




Prices:

PS3: 20GB - $499 / 60GB - $599
Xbox 360: around $350
Wii: $249.99



for all concerns, I'm going ALL IN for the WII...

for those who don't know, that wierd controller has a laser... is wireless... and it responds to movement...

YES.. MOVEMENT.. that means, if you're playing a tennis game, to make a strko you have to swing the controller like a tennis racket.. if your playing a golf game like a club and so on...

now take this farther... IMAGINE A STAR WARS GAME!!!!

IMAGINE A LEGEND OF ZELDA GAME


besides, there will be a Virtual Console, so you can plñay old games too.. Mario Bros, Mario 64, The legend Of Zelda, F Zero, Sonic (yes, Sega games TOO)


the 360 is already doing well, and the PS3 has a mockery for price tag... I really hope they do bad... (I'm a nintendo boy )

Sony has cut back on the number of Ps3's for their launch day both in the US and JAPAN... that's without thinking that it'll be launched in Europe in 2007..






WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII (say it.. it's fun )





which one will you choose? (if you want to)

I have no love for XBox 360, because I find it and its predecessor's game library to be boring. How many different war games, first-person shooters, and sports games does a console need? Yawn.

I'll probably buy a PS3 when "Final Fantasy XIII" is released, assuming it's not a commercial failure like the Sega Saturn or something. By the time that game is released, I should know.

I'm still unsure about the Wii. It's not for a lack of interest in Nintendo; I've had all their consoles since the original NES. It's just that with their emphasis on attracting the "non-gamer," I'm afraid that it will turn into a large form "Nintendo DS," and I'm not at all impressed with its game library.

I guess, overall, it's a matter of "wait-and-see" for now.

Well, just to be fair, I don't know many people who realistically expect a new system at launch. Most people who pre-ordered the XBox 360 for Christmas 2005 had to settle for Spring 2006 before they actually received it.

So the fact that the PS3 will be in short supply for Christmas 2006 should be of no surprise to anyone who remembers the last console rollout cycle.

But, obviously, the high price will certainly be a long-term challenge to get around.

Should be interesting to see what happens.

Got my 360 and don't plan on buying anything else. Anything I'd ever want to play is pretty much 360 exclusive. Gears of War comes out tuesday, Rainbow Six Vegas is going to be amazing. The Mass Effect Trilogy is going to revolutionize RPG's, as is Bioshock (destined to be one of the scariest/ most immersive games ever). We also have the Too Human trilogy, Banjo-Kazooie 3, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey (woah!), Cry On, Assassin's Creed (though that's PS3 bound as well), and so much more.

Oh, and yes, let's not forget about a certain little title the folks over at Microsoft like to call Halo 3. Hot damn. Now THAT's what I call a line-up.

360 now and forever baby.

Can you set it so that it doesn't respond to movement? I can really see it driving me crazy.

Though granted, I'm so old school and so far behind in the gaming world, that it'll be like 2017 before I decide "Hmm, maybe I should get one of those Wiis"


And because you mentioned Legend of Zelda, making this slightly on-topic, and just because I can:


I killed Ganon, yay!

I'm getting the 360 since I already have a bunch of Xbox games, plus I know the system better than the others.

oh yeah and Halo 3

I'd love to get the PS3, but I can't afford it. $500-600 is just a little too much for my wallet.

If anything, I'll probably end up getting the Wii - especially now that Nintendo's implementing backwards compatibility (w/the Virtual Console & GCN).

My roommate has an Xbox 360 that he bought last year (although he brought it home to Alberta with him when we moved out of res and refuses to bring it back out) - we spent the night camped out in front of a Wal-Mart to get it, and were harassed by a crackhead and regaled with tales of gang violence in the very same parking lot by a mall security guard. Three of us were there, my roommate bought one for himself and the other friend of ours bought two and promptly sold them on eBay for a profit.

Long story short, the 360 kicks ass - the games I've played so far (Madden, Call of Duty 2, Project Gotham Racing, and a couple others before he took it back to AB) are unreal!

So I think I might do this: I'm going to buy two or three PS3's the day they come out, and then sell 'em on eBay, keep the profit, and then when the price goes down I'll use that cash to buy one for myself. Might to the same with the Wii.

But the Wii controller interests me - if there's a Star Wars game that lets you use it like a lightsaber, that might twist my rubber arm into picking one up straight off the bat.

is this the first time Nintendo is allowing us to keep all our old games from the previous system and play them on the new one?!!!!

OMG! I want Wii! Though...I'll prob wait a year or two. I got my GC when it was only $99...I'll get the Wii when it goes down too.

XBox is boring and overrated IMHO. And I'm tired of waiting millions of years for my Sony games to load. If it weren't for FF & Dragonball, I would've ditched it long time ago. And since then they released FFCC and Dbz games for GC...so I guess it's official: no more need for sony!

You have to download them from their "Virtual Console" service, which means buying them again. I believe the cost is between $5 and $15, depending on the game. Plus, obviously, you can only purchase what's available, which will grow over time.
