Important note: if you get a 360, don't get the core system, at least get one with a hard drive. Because you'll need a hard drive, and it's more than the difference in price.

I'm glad this is a multiple choice poll. I think the Wii is a must have, but isn't actually a competitor with the other consoles.

My ideal configuration would be a Wii and a PC attached to the television, with a wireless controller. But unfortunately most PC ports don't play properly from a gamepad.

[edit: what? On topic?] Oh, and IMO the 360 and PS3 are basically equivalent, with two differences: 1) the 360 has some heat based reliability issues, and 2) there are very few games for PS3. Sony is very slowly preparing to release some PS3 exclusives. Microsoft may have resolved the heat issues with a larger heat sink. I doubt either of these issues matters in the long run, but if you go buy a console today, that's the deal.

Ahh yes, another discussion on which game system is better... Well, to be frank, I don't give a damn. Just give me a game and if I like I'll play it. I'm not one of those guys who will drop an MMO if professions are nerfed too frequently. But, I am getting off topic. I own an Xbox 360, so I had voted for the Xbox 360 as my choice, for two reasons: (1)I happen to enjoy the current titles, as the PS3 does not have a wide selection. (2)Xbox Live. Downloading extra game content, gamescore, Xbox Live Arcade, playing games over the net, all that good stuff. I wouldn't have even imagined of buying a PS3 if they had a decent amount of titles, mainly due to the price. The Wii is alright, but, like my DS, I have gotten tired of the faint variations of games. Mario, Zelda, I just need something else. I do own a Gamecube though, so I have nothing against Nintendo's consoles. All of the systems have their ups and downs. And, I do not side with any company. What it all comes down to for me is if I like and will play the games.

And for the record, I own an Xbox, Xbox 360, Gamecube, PS1, DS, PSP, Gameboy Advanced (used to, atleast), and a Gameboy Colour.

I really don't know how to explain why I buy the systems I do. It's just what I feel like at the moment, in some sort of way. I'm not in it for the competition, I just 'buy' it. Any of you feel the same way? I have alot more thoughts, when it comes to gaming...there just is no point. There isn't supposed to be one.

PS3 even though I don't own one yet, it is the clear winner of future console gaming. The machine is an untapped beast and just needs a few killer apps to jumpstart its life. Wii is a trend and has no future with hardcore gamers. 360 is a great system with some killer apps, but is flawed (crashboxLoL) and nowhere close to the power PS3 can offer.

Of course, they all pail in comparison to the power of PC gaming.

I voted for PS3 because I am so impressed with Little Big Planet I may have to buy one. What I really want though are games like this for the PC.

PC GAMING FTW

As of right now, they're all a failure. Wii is a trend that will blow over once the "Swing it like a retard." crap is no longer fun. The X-box is nothing new, it's like the X-box with improved graphics, nothing innovative, it does however have a flawless internet service (For consoles anyways) wich I belive is something that the other companies need to look at copying or atleast competing with.
The PS3 has nothing new, yet. As people have said before me it's a beast with massive untapped potential, and it's slowly being tapped. You have Home, you have Little big planet, you have MGS4, Final Fantasy XIII, Killzone 2, etc.


My guess would be that the PS3 will have outsold the other two consoles by the end of next year unless the others do something special or if some new console hits the market.

Between 360 and ps3 currently 360 is probably a better choice, but within the next few years ps3 will overtake it.
Its hard to compare Wii with the other to because it really shines when it comes to casual gaming, but fails to appease when it comes to hardcore gaming.
