Should I sell my Xbox 360 and buy a Wii?

Found 9th Sep 2008
After recently purchasing a PS3 80GB, my poor old Xbox 360 has been made somewhat redundant.

With the difference in graphics, any new multi platform games that come out (Tiger 09, PES 2009 etc), the chances are I'm going to buy the PS3 version.

So my question is should I keep my Xbox 360 or as the title says sell it and buy a Wii instead?

I have all three now since buying the new PS3. They all have their merits. Use the 360 for more live gaming as some EA games seem not to work on the PS network. Wii rarely gets used unless there are people round and the drinks are flowing:oops:

aww, i like the 360, problem with the wii is i dont like too many of the games (not enough to buy it) and like prissy said, i too would only use it with people round and drink.. like on christmas etc. I find it too grr to play otherwise... great console tho, just not for me. All my mario loves can be played on the gamecube, the only game i wanted is that cute mysims :oops:

I think its each to their own tho isnt it. If your happy to let your 360 go, do it.. you can always replace it in the future.

Depends if you are a hardcore gamer or a casual gamer.
If hardcore stick with the 360 for alot of good games coming out soon.
The Wii is good for casual but after a while it kinda gets old

I was going to buy a Wii as they've had some stonking deals recently, but I had to stop myself.

I don't really do the Xbox live thing.

Gears Of War 2.

The reason I rebought a 360!!!

My Wife has the Wii, it's great fun for her and the kids (plus Mario Kart for me!).

PS3 is cool, but I hate the flyweight controllers! It feels like it would go for miles if I let go of it. lol

sell it and keep the cash

As has been said, all depends on the type of games you like. They are good fun at times.

Won't Father Christmas get you a Wii anyway if you have been good:-D

I've decided to keep it as I have a load of games including GH and can't be bothered selling it and buying it for the PS3/Wii as only paid £30 for it..

Won my original Xbox 360 two years ago, which I sold a month ago to fund the new 60GB HDMI version, so technically not paid a penny for it.

Life is tough when you have these decisions to make. :-D

I have a feeling I'll be buying a Wii before Xmas.

Had all three consoles and I sold my wii,hardly play the ps3 and mainly buy for the 360

If you want something that collects dust after you get bored of the very few decent games out on it, then yes buy a Wii

I have a Wii and apart from buying Wii fit recently for my dad it had been untouched and unloved for about 4 months. There is only so much Mario Kart one can take!! (+ the DS version is so much better)

What difference in graphics?! Every game I've compared on my 360 and PS3 so far is practically identical!

I think you're the only person who can decide which consoles will fulfill your needs. Personally I have all three consoles and use the 360 almost daily, the Wii infrequently and the PS3 almost never. Maybe that will change when Little Big Planet and Home are released but the 360 will always be my primary machine. It just ticks more boxes for me than the other machines.
