I own a wii and people look at the cons and don't bother doing a bit of research. Here are my pros and cons. A lot of them sort of cancel each other out.

Cons: You have to be careful about what games to buy on the wii as 80% of them are crap. My collection of games is quite small because of this.
90% of these bad games are childish.
The visuals are bad.
The graphics are the worst of any console.
Wiimote is a 'gimmick'(debatable)
Lack of online play

Pros: Virtual console gives you hundreds of classics at the touch of a button.
Despite bad file size limitations, developers are attracted to the idea of wiiware, giving it some of the best third-party games to download.
Games are getting more serious i.e. The conduit, Cod: World at war, madworld, house of dead: overkill and Fatal Frame 4: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, to name a few. This is the main issue with a lot of people
Wii speak will enable voice chat, finally
Unbeatable interactivity
Graphics are improving. The conduit is beautiful for a wii game.
Visuals are improving with the release of the quantum3 engine.
Online play is now being encouraged and a lot of developers are taking advantage of that.

If you read the whole thread, you'd realize I'm pulling for Nintendo. I am not a fan boy and I do enjoy games from the other platforms. Unreal Tournament III is probably the best XBOX 360 game I've ever played, although I haven't truly gotten a chance to play Assasin's Creed yet though.

As opposed to when you see the Ps3s features you get badly writen porn?

The PS3 is basically fighting fire with fire, because that's all they can actually do. It's the only way they can market. It's come down to a console fight and it's no longer friendly honest competition like the N64 against the PS1. People just stopped caring about the games.

Becuase you are a 15 year old PS3 fanboy who doesn't like a 360 becuase it is like a PC for some reason

Psst... read next time. Also I'm 18... been a gamer for 14 years now. I think I know what I'm talking about. However my apologies to XBOX 360 owners for sounding biased. I do indeed enjoy some of the games from the XBOX 360 library, however I just don't see much point in owning an XBOX 360. I believe you would spend more money investing in the 360 than the Playstation 3. It just doesn't make sense. Now tell me I'm wrong.

If you like the console, buy it.
If you like the game, play it.
Enjoy yourself and stop fucking around with a useless bias war that has long lost it's charm since the Playstation, N64 and Sega Saturn.

During that time it was honest competition where the actual games determined everything. Nowadays no... people bitch about which console is better. You're probably one of few sane-minded gamers here.

Well, I may have gone a bit far against the XBOX 360, but you can't deny that the XBOX 360 does cost you some money depending on what all you get for it.

The way i see everything is:

Ps3:Has some great feature's like the blu ray and awesome graphics but is lacking in the good game part.

Xbx360:Not as good graphics as the Ps3 and no blu but has more games and even tho lots of them suck there is still way more good games for 360 then the Ps3.

Wii:This is more of an active type of gaming.Good for people who want to stay fit but don't want to leave the house because its too cold or too hot or w/e with this there isn't as many good games but they can still have decent graphics.

So in my opinion I say 360 is the greater console even tho i enjoy all of them.

You forgot computers.
But I guess its not a gaming console.....
But I think that PC gaming is the best.
Cause you download the games for free where as consoles you have to actually BUY the things.
And there is no $80 Subscription for using the Internet.


Arguing on the Internet is like running in the Special Olympics. Even if you win, you are still a retard.

almost all the wii's games are exclusive because nobody wants to develop for wii at the risk of making a crappy version of a good game and losing their reputation over a few bucks.

having all exclusives is a bad thing because it shows how unsupported your console is. exclusives are supposed to demonstrate the potential of a console but above all be an excellent game which is fun to play and will keep your playing for a long time. what exclusives aren't are games for the sake of creating a library.

Seriously?! The PS3 has the best games of all consoles! Although the X360 has some good games and probably a bigger library, the PS3 takes quality over quantity and every time I count one good Xbox game I can count 2 good PS3 games... IMO

OP, you leave out too many details. For shaaaame.

Last gen, PS2 was the easy console that got all the games, while Xbox was the large system with more maintenance, but more features. Now, PS3 is the large, high maintenance model with -less- features (at least when it comes to online play) compared to the Xbox 360, which is now the more casual gaming console of the two.

Also, if you didn't understand what I meant by high maintenance for PS3, the cell processor is holding the PS3 back. It's easy to program for the Xbox 360, because it's more like a PC. The PS3 is a bitch in a hat to program for. Most games on both console end up better on the Xbox 360 than on the PS3, a good example being Fallout 3. Fallout 3 was a festering pile on PS3, and it looked quite good on Xbox 360, and looked epic on my PC, because that's not really a console game at all to me.

Let's not forget that Xbox 360 likes to get its own exclusive content, no matter the means. Such as, The Lost and The Damned for GTAIV.

So, honestly. Why pay extra money for the PS3, when its online interaction (not the people, I mean the actual functions) is shoddy at best, is much more difficult to program for and ultimately gives any cross console game a problem, and doesn't even have as much content? Because people thought the PS3 would be like the PS2? 'Cause of Home, that God awful atrocity? (At least Miis and Xiis don't run after e-babes constantly.)

I'll tell you why! Because some people who are actually gamers, instead of fanboys, like themselves some Metal Gear Solid 4, Flower, flOw, Motorstorm 1/2, Wipeout HD... But those are aboud the only notable exclusives. When there're ten exclusives, at least, then the PS3 will have a real fighting chance against Xbox 360.

But Wii still wins in sales. By far.

Your sig is correct. According to metacritic, The xbox 360 has 223 games with a score of above 75 (which is generally a good game) While the Ps3 has only 139. That's a difference on 90 good games, a hell of a lot if you ask me.
