    Thats because certain people only mention games that are widely known.

    There's Oblivion, Mass Effect, Forza Motorsports 2, Burnout Paradise, Virtua Fighter 5, Dead or Alive 4, Dead Rising, Devil May Cry 4, Crackdown, Assassins Creed, Lost Odyssey, Viva Pinata, etc. etc. Also there's Too Human, GTA4, Fable 2, Ninja Gaiden 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Gears of War 2, Fallout 3, etc. that are due for this year.

    You could keep going, but im just making a point.

    i think i should get both...but as you said i think the xbox will hold me longer...I would LOVE to get the wii but I guess in the end I dont think SSBB will be good enough of a game to out wiegh the online Multiplayer games the 360 has to offer.

    Good call. It is kind of a win win situation though because both consoles are great. If you get a box though make sure you get Bioshock. That game was too fun.

    If you can't decide which console to get, get a PC! If you like shooters, the PC will definitely satisfy your needs. Most likely you already have a PC so just upgrade it to a decent gaming rig.

    I own all three consoles and an awesome gaming rig, all via lifeguarding lol. I'll try to give you an unbiased opinion. I always consider the PC king, so I will leave the PC out of this.

    The Wii offers really fun quick and easy gameplay. Games are just pick up and play and are especially fun if you have friends over. Wii sports always seems to be the 'default' game when we are bored and we've had many many intense tennis matches. Wii sports is definitely not a 100% casual game, you can get pretty intense if both sides are pretty good. As for hardcore games for the Wii, Brawl offers the best multiplayer fighting game right now and is definitely worthy of the one reason to buy a Wii. The Wii has the cool controls and the 'cool' thing to have these days because everyone knows about it. It's especially great to pick up chicks. If they know you have a Wii or you could bring it over and you could play together. easy. It's always "is that the thing where you move your arms around and play tennis on?" "yea, I have one, wanna play?" "Definitely most likely yes." The online play for Brawl, as of right now, is at it's lowest. Being crippled by all the people trying to play online. It will get better however, give it time. same thing happened to Mario Strikers Charged, disconnections and crazy lag the first week. After that, (and now) it's all smooth sailing and the only lag you get is only because of your own internet connection or the other player.

    The 360 offers superb online play. Especially since you pay for it and they do a great job. Definitely worth it. Matchmaking, demos, etc. The whole marketplace is easy and online play is superb. You can get a mic too and that adds an element of fun when you dominate someone. For the 360, it's all about online. Single player is great but it's the online that sells it. As you said, games like Halo 3 and CoD4 are great. Don't forget the new Army of Two and Frontlines: Fuel of War. Both awesome games. If you have a decent internet connection and not afraid to shell out $50 a year, then it's perfect.

    But please, don't forget about the PS3! This, i think, you should really look into. The online is free and offers most of the same great games that the 360 has, such as CoD4 and GTAIV. Exclusive games though, such as Halo 3, will still be console specific :/ But you do get MGS4, which is going to be one of the best stealth games out there. It has better hardware, although currently under utilized, the graphics will be much more prominent in the future and games will look so much better. The 360 has already reached it's peak (ex. Red Ring of Death) and devs are just mastering ways to make better algorithms. The PS3 however still has so much potential with it's Cell processors.

    Lastly, hardware doesn't make a console, games do. Decide what games appeal to you, what kind of games too. Shooters will be prominent on the PS3 and 360. I must be honest, devs for the Wii just can't see the hidden potential in the Wii for shooters. But you never know, the Wii may one day become a hotspot for shooters. The Wii has fun pick up and play games, along with it's own group of hardcore games (SSBB, etc.). Controllers shouldn't be an issue. If you have a 360, you will get used to the analog sticks and if you have a Wii, you will get used to the Wiimote. It just takes time.

    EDIT: and like T3K mentioned, there are tons of games out there for each console, probably some you may have never heard of but may be interested in.

    while endless ocean and battalion wars 2 are fun games, they are not "good" games that you would use to justice a purchase of a console.

    I wouldn't buy a 360, How many years has it been out now ? Microsoft will probably make an announcement that a new console will be available soon and you will regret your purchase.
    If You Add My Wii Code, Please PM me with your code so i can add you. THANKS

    Hardcore gaming --> PC
    Fun gaming --> Wii

    Playing an FPS with an xbox or ps3 gamepad? LOL.

    I'd say spring for the Xbox 360 first.

    Then get a Wii.
