PS3 is the most powerful machine but I think that Xbox runs better and has better online play

I've played a Wii and it sucks. To me that's not really gaming and if I really want to play Tennis, etc then I'll go outside and do it.

I wanted a 360, but they burn out (my friend got one in November that did). Also the HD DVD thing is done. Still they have a great selection of games. Still you have to pay for xBox live.

PS3 sounds the best to me. Best graphics capability, free online play and a Blu-Ray player. They need more games for it though.

I have both Wii & PS3.

X-Box 360 has a lot of technical problems, though Microsoft has made good attempts to fix that, with good customer service. It has a better game library, likely due to coming out before the PS3.

PS3 will soon take over. A lot of it has to do with Blu-Ray, people will now vouch for a PS3 for that reason. It has a huge library of games coming up in the near future, like Haze.

Wii is an all around fun system. Seriously, if you play a lot with friends, and especially family.. this is the system. It has probably the best video game of all-time in Super Mario Galaxy.

For me;

1) PS3
2) Wii
3) X-Box 360

PS3 is the best, and it's not even arguable, also, Bluray will win over HDDVD...
However Xbox has some of the best selling games like Halo 3 and has more users.
so if you are a bandwagon guy, get a xbox.
if you are a user that wants quality and durability ( I bought mine saying that I wouldn't have to buy anything for at least 8 more years), then GO FOR A PS3.

There is nothing wrong with PS3 online, xbox users critique ps3's online ... but I see nothing wrong about it and it's free ... as opposed to xbox live.

XBOX 360 has better games right now, but PS3 is starting to get some huge hits as of late (Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank to name a few).

I have all three but Wii is a huge deception for me. I got bored of the controls after 3 months.

The more versatile one is the PS3 without a doubt. If you have an HD tv and are thinking about buying HD movies then without a doubt it's the option. Blue-ray has one the format war and the PS3 is one of the very best BR players. It's also a great media center.

Wii is fun but is more of a party system to me. One you have friends over and play wii sports etc. the lack of sports game and shooters are a turn off from me. more of a novalty system for me

360 is poorly made and just randomly breaks. I think they rushed the system a year too earl on its release just to get ahead of the competition. Paying to play online is the stupidest thing i have ever heard of and i would never do that. Be different if they gave you the internet access but no u pay your regular internet bill plus what $15 a month to play online. its alrite if you play alot i guess.

I went with the ps3. Always loved sonys systems and will stay loyal from past experiences. I loved the exclusive games and cant wait for god of war and mgs etc. For the same price as an xbox i think ps3 if by far the better purchase buts thats just me depends on what kind of games you are into and what features you are looking for.

Ps3 = RPG
Xbox = Sports, SHOOTERS, action games
Nintendo = Mario, Zelda, Metroid, puzzles, allaround.

Best online = xbox but $$$

Best Free online = Ps3

Best price = Wii

Most fun console imo: Wii (If you want to play with friends, family, get one)

My choice: Wii

PS3


1- HDDVD is Dead, long live bluray and one of the cheapest BR player you can buy is the PS3, one of the best game system on the market

2- I right off won't a Wii (until it gets really cheap, even tho it already is, as GTA4 won't be on it.

3- 360 costs as much if you want the same capabilities as the PS3 (HDDVDrom is an add-on, and well, its now DEAD)

4- 360s are crap hardware that break ten times more than PS3

5- You can load Fedora O/S on PS3

6- I hate 360 controller, have always prefered Sony's

7- Game developers will like the Sony dev library a whole lot, which is totally open-source and means that in the upcomming years you will see amazing games like you haven't seen on any other game system. (mind you we all know PCs can be far better at a 1000$ price tag)

8- MGS4

9- GranTurismo4 (or is it 5... i don't remember)

10- You can add one SATA hard drive of any size, or HD book in USB connection.

11- 2 HDMI ports

12- most importantly. I HATE Microsoft

SO PS3 1st and a Wii fo sho

It only costs money if you're a sucker. We got a free month with the system but a few weeks after it expired we decided to try entering a new e-mail address and it worked. Whether we're an anomaly or not, I can't say...but we haven't spent a dime and continue to pwn n00bs and Generals alike under the guise of our pitiful Sergeant rank on Halo

But it's really been pissing me off lately, seems like every game has a betrayer or complete eff-wit.

I think that's pretty unfair.

PS3 has really picked up in the past few months. Yes, their RPG selection is incredible and will only get better with two Final Fantasy games coming out in the near future.

But I have Fifa 08, NHL 08, Virtua Tennis and they are all incredible, fun games.

And same with action games; I'd place Uncharted on the same level as Halo. Rachet and Clank is just incredible.

If graphics is your thing go with the PS3...the games will come along and you will get blu-ray to booth...

If your looking for fun with others....the wii is it

Ok seriously whats the big deal with halo? I loved the first one and the second one was good but the third come off it. Its suppose to be next gen, and it looks and feels like counterstrike which has been out for years now. To me its just an oridnary shooter which offers nothing new or different. Maybe i'm missing something here but i just dont get it. Flame Away
