PS3, XBOX 360 or Wii

Hi Y'all, Happy 2007!

The new next gen consoles all are here. The 360 was released a year ago so it did get a head start in comparisson to the two other systems.

THe 360 has the best games so far, followed by a tied (in my opinion) lock between the PS3 and the Wii.

The XBOX has never been popular in Japan, wheras Nintendo soars. In the States Nintendo is losing power, wheras the PS3 and 360 have close competition.

Which system do you prefer and why?

My brother has the Wii. It's very cool with the wireless aspect. The tennis game that comes with the system is fun, though only because you're actually swinging the control stick like a racket, not because it has anything close to good graphics.

So far, Sony has managed to reach its sales target so all isn't bad. Besides, it's no secret manufacturers lose money on consoles because they're so expensive to make. The profit comes from the number of games sold.

I have a soft spot for Nintendo because they've been in the industry since the early 80s and have iconic characters such as Link and the Mario brothers. Plus they've taken an original approach with its Wii controllers, which is a huge risk. But Sony's impressed me with the PS3's technology, so I'll go with them for now.

Re: PS3, XBOX 360 or Wii

The Wii is the best I think, although I tend to sell more XBOX 360 games than any other console. (I have a cut price games shop )

Re: PS3, XBOX 360 or Wii

Xbox 360 has the best graphics technology.

Sony have been hyping the PS3's Cell CPU chip. Sony aren't hyping the RSX chip that actually does the graphics for a reason: ATI's Xbox 360 Xenos graphics chip is related to the next-generation PC graphics cards while Nvidia's PS3 RSX graphics chip is related to the previous-generation PC graphics cards. The Xbox 360 is not hugely better graphically but people should know they won't see the PS3 do anything graphically the Xbox 360 can't.

Re: PS3, XBOX 360 or Wii

The Wii is for people under 10 or for people that want to spend only a few minutes with game that don't know how to use a normal controller. It doesn't have the capabilities to do good AI, grahics, or do high resolution gaming so it will look poor on a high definition tv.

The Xbox and PS3 are both good choices. They both feature tremendous gaming capabilities. Since the Xbox has been out longer it has more games out, but the PS3 has more built in media functions and is a little more powerful. You have to get a seperate HD player for the Xbox, while the blu-ray player is built in to all the PS3.

I think that right now the Xbox is the better choice, but in March when the big firmware update comes out and more games come out that can take advantage of the PS3 the PS3 might be better.

Another thing is that the PS3 has an HDMI output, which provides better quality, but there are rumors that the Xbox will come out with HDMI and a hard drive that is equal to the PS3.

So I don't think you can go wrong with either the Xbox or the PS3. The Wii is mostly targeting little kids with cartoonish graphics and kids games.
