    Personally, I like the 360. Yes it has technical issues, but its not nearly as bad as some people say. It has as good as graphics as the PS3, and its cheaper. Good library of games since its been out for 2 years compared to the PS3 1.

    Have you tried the RE for Wii? Those are mature games.

    I know little about either, but based on info I get from other boards, more people recommend the Xbox.

    There are quite a few 'mature' type games on Wii such as Resident Evil:4, Resident Evil: UC, The Godfather, Scarface, Splinter Cell, Mortal Kombat, Manhunt 2 and the upcoming No More Heroes. Id expect any M rated PS2 games released in the future would also be on Wii as well.

    As for choosing between a 360 and PS3 that depends what you want from the system. I would look at the exclusive titles and pick which one has more that interests you. Unless you specifically want a Blueray player for movies i dont think that there is too much to choose between them.

    PS3 has built in Bluray while with the 360 you need to by seperate hardware to play HD-DVD's.

    Bluray and HD-DVD are basiclly the same quality wise. It looks like slowly HD-DVD is losing market share though.

    360 uses standard DVDs with the HD DVD drive being an optional extra for HD movies.

    PS3 uses Blueray disks that can hold a lot more than a standard DVD and can play Blueray movies.

    DVD single layer - 4.7 GB, DVD dual layer - 8.5 GB
    Blueray single layer - 25 GB, Blueray dual layer - 50 GB
    HD DVD single layer - 15 GB, HD DVD dual layer - 30 GB

    In the future Blueray could go up to 200 GB though.

    In terms of gaming it dosent make much difference at the moment though as no developer is going to fill up a Blueray disk, a game that big would just cost too much to make so the only games that might even come close are future PS3 exclusives. Multiplatform games are usually developed with the 360 in mind first though so they are virtually identical on both formats.
