Why was Getwin, the originator of this thread, banned from the forum?? I checked his posts and the worst word he every used was A$$ and he never directly attacked anyone in a negative way. He disagreed all the time but doesnt he have that right?
This question is to you i0n!!!
I think that it is good to have other opinions in matters such as these. Just like in politics. I am a Republican - and I hate most Democrat views, however, at the same time I am glad that the other party exists because it is a good check for Republican extremists. Liberal point of views keep us conservatives from becoming too conservative and keeps us open to other ideas which is good for everyone.
So unless I see evidence for why Getwin was banned from this forum, Im gonna hold a chip on my shoulder about this website and its administrator - who up to this point had been doing a great great job.
Now on the topic of this thread.
Wii is my favorite because Im a nintendo fan, I like the games, Ive never seen a glitch, I love the first party support and how it can be translated from game to game (ex mario in super mario, mario kart, mario party, etc.) Now the wii will not blow anyone away with its graphics when compared side by side with the 360 and PS3. However, thats not to say that Wii's graphics will be bad. They are an improvement over last generation and make the most of an SDTV. It is up to programmers to make movements and other things in games appear to be more realistic etc. Ive seen crappy looking games on good systems, it depends how much effort developer put into a game. And we all know that Nintendo, being its own main developer always puts a ton of effort into its games. Now the innovative style is also a big seller for me. At first I was skeptical, but after a few days and more research, I was really excited about this new gaming experience. So my reasons for Nintendo are history (ive always liked it, and its games best), gameplay (new and limitless), and price (way cheaper than MS an Sony).
Reasons for the Xbox 360:
It has Halo 3. It is slightly less expensive than the PS3, though I feel the extra cost for PS3 is worth it over the Xbox due to the better graphics and features.
Reasons for the Playstation 3:
Graphics. These will be unparalleled by any other console and provide a new realism that is occasionally experienced on the 360 and seldom on any other console. BlueRay is interesting. It is a great technology though unproven and more importantly, unestablished. Those who want PS3 for the BlueRay movie player will be highly upset if HD DVD wins the format battle and are unable to find BlueRay format movies in 3 years.
In conclusion: Tell me why Getwin was banned.
Wii is the best console because of its price and new gameplay and the fact that it is Nintendo, PS3 is the best all purpose machine because of its cutting edge technology and many features, but it is way too expensiive for most to own ( I wouldnt buy it for 300 bucks myself - personal preference) XBox sucks because it is the middle of the road. You sacrafice too much in technology compared to PS3 for the amount of the price difference. If XBox wants to stay afloat then they need to be selling systems for $250 American this Xmas. Also, as said before, most XBOX games are available on PC. This makes XBOX suck. Now 360 is still a great console, but I fail to see the point in buying it after PS3 and Wii comeout because they will effectively outdate it in graphics and gameplay. Buy a Wii if you like fun and playing games, buy a PS3 if you are rich, superficial, and want to show off while playing games.
