    Would you rather get a Playstation 3 or a Nitendo Wii? I would get a Playstation 3 because

    1# It has the more fun games.
    2# Awesome graphics.
    3#Overall menu layout, feature, setup, etc.

    Neither. One is too expensive, and the other gets boring.. FAST!

    Processing power of the PS3 is useless for the next few years until they can make games that can fully utilize the hardware potential.

    Wait until the fall of this year for the new 360 elite with the new smaller and cooler processor.. Halo 3 FTW

    I vote Wii. It's still fun for me, and there are some cool games coming out.

    On a side note: Can some mod do a spelling-fix on the poll? :D

    Fixed it

    I vote PS3 as there are 2 main games I want coming out for it, Gran Turismo HD and Grand Theft Auto!

    Wii. GTA will inevitably be out on PC, and my pc didn't cost $600+ to outfit.

    Plus, NiGHTS Journey of Dreams is launching as a Wii exclusive, and I'm a NiGHTS nut :) Kinda seals it for me speaking that I spent $300 or so getting the saturn and the game used, and it'd cost about that to get a wii and NiGHTS ^_^

    And I can't justify another $600 purchase; I'm already working on a Wacom tablet, and those are $90 for the most basic POS they have XD

    PS3. After 3 weeks with the Wii you will get bored. :)

    Thats what everyone says.

    + The PS3 rocks. :)

    I choose the Wii, beacuse of the family like quality of the console, and also because of the price. But thats a whole different ball game.

    Neither, get a 360. But if we do have to have this conversation...

    360 has more. Then again, PS2 has waaay more than that. And it really depends on your definition of FUN.

    PS3 doesn't really have that much in the way of any games right now. And quite a few of the Wii games are quite fun.

    360s are better. Case in point: Gears of War.

    But compared to the Wii then yes. But it is over twice as expensive as the Wii, what do expect?

    Again, 360s dashboard is better. Live Messenger integration coming with the next dash update, XBL is second to none, double concavity console rather than the morbidly convex PS3.

    But the Wii channels are actually quite cool. XMB can get very unweildy with large amounts of files.

    Also you must consider the internet capability.

    Since PS3's internet functionality is free (I don't know about Wii but I think it's free too), Microsoft might lower the price for XBL. EGM predicts that Microsoft may even make XBL free if Sony gets in the lead..

    Free Halo 2, GOW, and Halo 3 multiplayer games online? Yeah, talk about straining the power grids here in the US

    I wouldn't have thought so. Its pretty good value for all the other services you get I recon.

    And Sony's service won't overtake XBL anytime soon in terms of subscibers. XBL 360 has over 6million members; sony haven't even sold that many PS3s.

    And when the Live gaming service goes over to PC in full force, that number is going to rise very quickly. There are hundreds of millions of PC gamers.

    Don't forget FPS.

    Wii could be better for them (Point and aim? Uhm thats Duck Hunt, and don't forget Shooting for Wii) but still mouse would be faster than 3d hand.

    I prefer the 360. But I chose PS3. Only because it has real graphics not like that Wii thing.
