The only thing its good enough for is the exitement value because your more involved within the game, altho for looks and decent games etc id go for either the 350 or Ps3
#2
who are you getting it for? if its someone over 10 then get a ps3 but the younger ones like the wii. i bought a wii and really didnt like it so got a ps3.
#3
the wii is a great family console especially at christmas when you get more time together, but as above it really depends on the age of the person you are buying for.
#4
Wii is a family console / fun console
Ps3 is a serious gamer console.


--
Both consoles have their ups and downs.


IF you have a HDTV get the PS3
If you dont have it, still get a PS3 unless as alicom said. the main user will be under 10.
Although you'll probably have more of a chance finding the PS3 now as youve left it til this late! :giggle:

wii gets boring after 2 weeks. maybe its because i played some rubbish games or because the whole motion sensitive thing gets boring and i just want to sit down and play normally.
#6
Just like to add that the PS3 is more than just gaming.

Gaming Console
BlueRay Disk Player.
Internet Browser.
Media Center (view movies, photos and play music.)
You can also stream media from your PC and view it from the PS3.
#7
u can also watch divx movies on it.

I concur

I have played the PS3 and it's good

I have a Wii,which for me, as already mentioned is for family fun
I also have an XBox360 which I play lots on XBox Live.

Buy an XBox360,a 12 months XBox Live subscription and Gears of War and say goodbye to the cold winter months (like I did to the cold summer months:-D )

The 360 is my fully operational faithful fun loving friend:thumbsup:

#22
Ps3 anyday

but if you ask me which is best out of the 3 ones atm id go for the 360
#23
Meh I hate the ps3, I want a gaming console not things I can do on a pc, I dont have any interest in streaming videos, downloading games(hey you can get emus on pc) blu ray doesnt interest me as I have a dvd player.

So what else is there to it for a much more expensive console and games.

The wii is much more fun, but cant be played long term unless you have friends round, or you are drunk, for sit down and play games get a 360
#24
the person i am buying it for is 35 so does it make a difference?
#25
Yes it does. Go for the PS3

then definatley get a ps3.
#27
What has 35 go to do with definatley getting a ps3?

im 25 and prefer a wii, the ps3 feels far too much too soon and forces you into things that are uneccessary at the minute.

I had to read that line a few times but still didn't grasp why he hates the PS3 so much. :?
#30
surely the ps3 giving too much is a good thing?:?
#31
Well id rather have a smaller cheaper more fun console then spend far more on a massive block that isnt that impressive.

I just dont like the PS3, the ps1 and ps2 I think are fantastic(I still constantly play ps1 games) but I felt the PS3 was dull, far to generic.

The wii is far more fun. but id never play a serious game like a rpg on it.
#32
Too much too soon and yet it's far to(o) generic?
#33
I think you should sit a few plays out ryouga.

The PS3 is better than the Xbox 360 for a simple reason. It's for grown ups :thumbsup:

-e.g. a 10 year old might hack the drive while removing it from the caddy in the PS3, but the X360 version is nice and easy for kids of all ages.

-Real men wear sophisticated bluetooth headsets, kids wear proprietary ones...

-A real serious system says you can do it your way. Install an O/S, develop for it, and make it a personal experience. A kids console says, only the square shape will fit through a square hole.

-A real system looks slick in person and is vulnerable to scratches so needs the care of an adult. A kids console is scratch proof (cue Xbox 360)

-Kids like noise, and the Xbox 360 is noisy. The PS3 is for men at the gentleman's club with its whisper of class like a classy lady blowing gently into your ear.

To conclude; if you have healthy sized piece of livelihood, the PS3 will be your best friend.

FANBOY OVERLOAD!

You can tell when the fanboys come out as they come up with silly reasons to defend their console.

As for it being to generic, well it hasnt really brought any interesting additions to the gaming scene, better graphics sure, but you can play online games on the 360, silly headsets you get them on the 360, wireless 360 and wii and even the ps2.

Blu ray, well thats just a beefed up dvd player.

Games too many rehashes of old games, unlike the wii which has party games like wario ware and wii sports.

Its just a beefed up ps2, hasnt bought anything other consoles havent.

Define 'better'.

Do you mean better graphics? If so the PS3 wins
Do you mean better games? If so then your definition of better will be different to some other peoples'. Some will love what are commonly called 'hardcore' games and will go for a PS3 or 360. Some will prefer the fun and involving games, some of which are family orientated, and go for the Wii.

Best solution is to read some reviews of the top selling games for each console, have a think about which games really appeal to you, then buy that console and those games.

Simple. :)

And yes, I have a Wii, but I'm not biased. Oh no. Not at all. Well, I don't think so. Am I .......... ? ;-)
