    Wii, 360, or PS3... Which is better?

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but for the life of me I can't find a thread on it.

    My boyf and I want to get one, but can't decide which. We want to actually play with it tho, and not get bored within a week.

    Pros and cons would be grand.

    Cheers :thumbsup: :santa: :-D

    Are you kidding! :w00t:

    Go to [SIZE="3"]ANY[/SIZE] thread that contains Wii, PS3 or Xbox 360, and you will find lots of debate about it.

    Opinion is given whether asked for or not.


    Example:

    [COLOR="Red"]OP[/COLOR]: I would like fifa 2009 on PS3, what's the best price available?

    [COLOR="Blue"]Response 1[/COLOR]. Should've got a X box 360, PS3 is *****.

    [COLOR="DarkOrchid"]Response 2[/COLOR]: Nah, The Nintendo Wii is the only true 3rd generation console.

    [COLOR="red"]OP[/COLOR]: I only want fifa 2009, F***off :x



    [SIZE="1"]*Fifa 2009 is not available in stores at time of posting.[/SIZE]

    lol!! ok ok it's Monday!! I will look again...

    Thank you!

    I've had all 3 and in my opinion the Wii can't be compared to the other 2 as it's completely different but i think it's great.

    As for the PS3 v 360 debate. I sold my PS3 as i didn't like it and preferred the 360.

    PS3: dont get a PS£, not enough games, cant even chat in half of them online. I think in 6months to a year it will be worth it with MGS and GT comming out

    WII:I wont even comment:|

    xbox360: best console out at this current time, stack load of games, best online features etc.

    Depends on what you are looking for? All systems offer you something different!

    Wii - unique gaming experience that is fun for all
    Xbox - an established gaming machine with loads of games and great online support
    PS3 - new system but more than just a gaming platform. Offers you Blu Ray and Wi Fi, a few games out now, but loads more on there way!

    I have a Wii and PS3 and am pleased with both, however the novelty factor has worn off the Wii, and it's only really fun with a few of you playing, especially after drinks!

    360 all the way, i found the Wii good for about and hour then it soon gets boring. PS3 is just a glorified ps2 but 10x more expensive only advantage is the bluray player

    ive only ever had playstations before but got a 360 and it is by far the best console ive ever played on and the joypads are comfy too!

    oooh now I'm torn. I did want the wii, but I'm slowly realising we will get bored of it pretty quickly. Ive always loved the xbox, but I like the idea of all the extras on the PS3. We also saw an advert on tely last night for a game called Assassin I think it was for the PS3. That looks pretty good. hmmm what to do...

    Assassins Creed, Its on 360 and ps3.

    Its overrated and repetative

    If you can wait till Xmas 2008 then the 360 will have a built in HD-DVD player. Patience is key. :giggle:

    I think the PS3 will be better in the near future however right now, with all the games the 360 has, it is better. I would say get the PS3 as the games coming out next year looks great.

    I've got it, an excellent game, great architecture, sword play, nice roaming and not too linear, as for all the repetitive whiners, all games are repetitive, end.

    Fairly accurate description and/or arguments actually - I'm impressed. I would point out that though that the number of 'child like' games on the wii doesn't make them any less fun and that Resident Evil still scares the be-jesus out of me!

    Oh and that as a rule the 360 version of multiformat games is usually the first to be discounted.

    That said go for the one that has the most games you want to play otherwise it will sit idle after a week... :thumbsup:
