Well, if we are to look at originality, then go for the Wii. The 360, though a good console, is really just a shinier Xbox with better graphics. Same old thing really. The PS3... well, originality isn't in their vocabulary, as any new idea that Nintendo have come up with, they have copied. I wonder, how many people will have lost interest by the time the PS7 comes out...Originally Posted by Dossage
Graphics, I will admit, are important - but if you look at the Gamecube's graphics, which are still pretty awesome - the Nintendo Wii's graphics are twice as good as that. Go to www.youtube.com and type in Metroid Prime 3, or Super Mario Galaxy, or Red Steel. You will see that the graphics do not disappoint.
Let's look at games - what does the 360 have, in reality? Besides Halo, which is exclusive to it, there really isn't much reason to fork out such a large amount of money for a console with limited selection. Playstation 3, I won't deny, WILL have some good games - but the vast majority will just be sequels. The Wii is trying new things, which is something other companies seem to afraid to do. The Wii is taking a risk, and judging by the fantastic feedback the console has got so far, this risk is paying off. With the Wii, Nintendo is doing all they can to make you feel like you are a PART of the game, not merely playing it. You can interact in ways you've never been able to before.
But it all comes down to games - and from what I've seen so far, the Wii will have a vast selection of games to suit EVERYBODY, and not just the loyal few.
Without meaning to be biased, as I am a Nintendo fan myself - go for the Wii. It's the cheapest, the most original, the most intuitive, and most importantly the most fun. Wii is about gaming for everybody, INCLUDING hardcore gamers - 360 is about gaming JUST for hardcore gamers.
