Still got the Wii & 360. Didn't like the PS3 and sold it.

Just my preference though.

I have a wii and 360.
360 gets alot more playtime.

50/50 on intrested in getting a ps3
#3
Still have my Black xBox 'brick'. I don't see any reason to upgrade yet.

The Wii looks like it is aimed for the younger player and the novalty will soon ware off.

The xBox 360 has loads of good games but the reliability seems to be an issue.

The PS3 has never reached the potential that was promised.

I have a 360 and love it for online gaming I do not think you can beat it!

I do want a PS3 but only because I have always had a playstation. But there is nothing that really draws me to it apart from that. The only reason I still have my PS2 is for the dance mat games and BUZZ.

My wife would like a Nintendo wii for Xmas. I have played a couple of games on it but not been that impressed although future titles look ok (Mario and Sonic olympics thingy looks great fun).

I think overall if you get the 360 Elite then you have the best of all the consoles and you do not need to risk throwing a controller through your telly!
#5
I love my 360, I'm getting a Wii in a few weeks.

No reason to get a PS3 yet imo, maybe in a year or so when theres a backwards compatable version for £300 and some good games out.
#6
ps3 for me over the 360 as i have had both and preffer the ps3 but carnt comment on the wii as i have never had or played on one.
#7
had a wii, didnt like it and sold it then got a ps3. was thinking about 360 but wanted something to last didnt want to change the console after 2 years. also i have always liked the playstation controller and i really dont like the xbox ones.
#8
Now the PS3 is cheaper its a better prospect, still no real games im interested in at minute
#9
Proud ownder of a PS3 and a Wii.

Always owned Nintendo and Sony consoles, and the Xbox has never appealed to me! However, I don't think it's a **** machine, and don't criticise it.

Each to there own I say, it just amazes me how many comments people have about other hardware that they either i) don't own or ii) doesn' want to own!!!!!
#10
PS3 over xbox 360 any day!

Had playstations since they came out, And before that, i had a super nintendo lmao!

Have played the 360 and PS3, and i much prefer the PS3.

I hate the 360 because the controllers are dumb, and i think the PS3 looks better.

:? :roll: :thumbsup:
#11
Liking a console just because of the controllers is dumb

And I believe you can get an adaptor letting you use PS2 pads on the Xbox360
#12
I don't get the hype over Halo though! I mean I have played it a few times, but wasn't that impressed with it!
#13
Meh Halo, I prefer Medal Of Honor.

Well, there are many more things i like about the PS3. But i cant be bothered to type them all out.

And what is the point of buying adaptor things for the 360 if i can have the real thing and all of the other things i like on the PS3.

Halo, doesent intrest me either, dont know how people go crazy over it.

Yer, medal of honour is much much better!
#15
I like the 360 better games in my opinion.
#16
360 gets my vote everytime but i wouldnt be so happy with it if it wasnt for the online stuff like seeing your friends online or messages it wouldnt be AS good
#17
There was no way I was going to get a PS3- until I played on one. It's the first console that i've had that I use for more than gaming. Got a Wii, that sees little use now but it was cheap so i'm happy to wait til more games come out next year before using it again, and now that Rez has been announced for the 360 i'm going to get one of those too. I'm seeing the 360 and Wii as occasional machines, and the PS3 as my everyday gamer.

Now that you can get all the systems and a fair few games for £800 there's no reason not to, if you can afford it! 800/365= £2.19 a day for the full experience. If you want to sort out reselling values, in a year a decent s/h boxed ps3 is likely to fetch £210, a 360 premium £140, a Wii might still carry high residuals so say £140, totalling £490, costing you £310 to own them for a year, or 85p a day. And that's if you pay for them in full to begin with, and not find a bunch of trades to bring the prices right down ;-)

Will probably continue to get the most use out of the GBA micro, DS and PSP though. Portable gaming makes life so much easier...

I play XBL a lot, thats great.

Having the COD4 HUKD clans on the 360 was great.

How many ps3 owners did that?

i like the way that was put. but also thats if you buy all the consoles. if you just get a ps3 and wii thats equal to 530/365= 1.45 a day. not bad if you think about it but then with that money i can get something else other than just consoles.

Wasn't the COD4 beta available only on the 360?
#22
exactly.

anyone else think the simpsons demo is rubbish?
#23
its ok but i cant get to the top part of the donut giant. when i freeze the giant wat do i do next?
#24
The intro part with kent looked just like the cartoon.but when you get control it looks rubbish.

I couldn't land on the giants head.

Im playing the conan demo which is also rubbish
#25
Someone answer me this, when was the 360 released? and when was the PS3 released? The 360 is currently better than the PS3 hands down...there shouldnt even be a debate imo...however, like i have said many times before, the 360 should be better as it has been out for longer.

I strongly believe it has more owners than the PS3 because it was the first 'next gen' console available on the market (i used to be a Playstation fanboy but switched over for the better graphics etc). I've had my 360 for about 14 months now and just like what is happening now with the PS3, when i first got it, the games line-up was crud but got better over time...and this will happen with the PS3...its only been out since March 07 in the UK.

If anyone fancies a match on Gears of War, PM me!

How many Xbox 360 owners can run windows Xp or Linux on their system?!

How many 360 owners can play Blu-ray discs?!

How many 360 owners had to pay £60 for a wireless adapter?!

How many PS3 owners have Halo 3 and Gears of War on their PS3?!

How many PS3 owners took out a loan to pay for their console?!

How many 360 owners had to send off their 360 due to getting the red rings of death?!

How many PS3 owners have played the new PES 2008 demo that is out on the PC and 360?!

Lol, the arguments are endless! :giggle:

Just a little bump,as people have missed this thread
#28
Thanks add-man! I own a Xbox 360 (from launch day), and a nintendo wii. I think the xbox is great, better than the PS3 (which I owned breifly), but I have to say the wii is the best out of the lot for multiplayer! Its great fun, I actually enjoy using the wii with friends, its great, I use my wii alot more now than the 360 actually, but, then for the truly awesome games, 360 wins hands down, my favourite game on the 360 at the moment is pgr4, I love it, I dont really like Halo!!!!

:thumbsup:

Selling my Wii tomorrow for two reasons.
1. Its been sat there unused for the past 2 months.
2. I need the cash :giggle:

I love my 360 - might get a wii again when the price drops a lot.
PS3 - will get one in time - its not a piority.

Aww the wii is awesome, get some people round and have a game on it, you will want to keep it then. lol. :thumbsup:
#31
we have a nintendo wii @ the mo and it ROCKS!!!!

xbox never really interests us we prefer more retro consoles then the newer ones.
The OH wants a ps3 as he has had all the playstations but he couldn't justify the £400 price tag when it first came out now the price has dropped we are considering it but not until after christmas
#32
I had a coice to buy one of these and after lots of deliberation went for the 360 premium and i am now looking to buy a Wii .
Playstation 3 i may consider a lot later -but i have the ps2 with around 25 games as well .
#33
I had a PS2 from launch day and thought it was the best games console in the world. I didn't even consider the 360 when it came out, until I played it at a mates house and then I just had to buy one!!

I bought a wii last Christmas, but sold it 2 months later because it was just sitting by the tv collecting dust.

I have now bought a PS3 and am quite impressed with it. Obviously, because of the newness of the PS3, the games aren't up to the standard of the 360 yet, but given time, I reckon they will at least match the 360, and probably surpass it.

To sum up, IMO if you want a good games console now, get a 360. If you're into high def tv, blurays and want a games console for the future, get a PS3.
#34
Everyone that is enjoying the Wii, what games are you actually playing that is making it so fun. All I see on it is a butt-load of PS2 ports with waggle controls.
#35
Anything but Microsoft **** for me, anyone got one of those commodore machines?

Some of the games that have come out are just ports but then again you should just steer clear of them. The big games are coming out within the next few months for the Wii, in particular Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Brothers Brawl, Metroid Prime 3 Corruption and Mario Kart Wii, and there's no way that you can define these games as 'ports with waggle controls' because they will be gaming masterpieces. :w00t:
#37
Microsoft should provide dedicated servers for their games, instead of the laggy peer to peer servers.

Even Halo 3 doesn't have dedicated servers, which is ridiculous considering it's their biggest game and the fact that you pay £40 a year for XBL.

PS3 has the best lineup of games for the rest of 2007, and with the release of the 40GB it's now the same price as an Elite, and with free PSN, it's now top of the pile. :)

PS3 defnintely the best, yet to show it's full potential
