    Wheres all the hate?

    Hiya,

    I've just come off the numerous PS3 forums since im bored at work and just want something to read.

    Well I noticed, roughly 60% of their topics seem to be people arguing whos better out of the xbox 360 and ps3; dont you think its funny that the Wii forums get none of these debates.

    Why do you think this is?

    Does everyone besides Wii fans not know of the Wii's awesome gameplay that the disregard it as serious competition.
    Or is it the fact that they know the Wii is hands down the best console in this gneration and they are desperatly struggling who should be in 2nd place.

    I think it's mainly because the PS3 and 360 are very similar consoles, and both are trying to deliver the same kind of games and the same gaming experience, so there's competition between the two groups of fanboys who believe their system is better.

    Since the Wii isn't shooting for the same graphics or gameplay they are, it's not really part of the competition. I think they respect the Wii as a console, as it seems to be selling very well, but its a different experience. There isn't really much to argue over between the Wii and another system, because everyone already knows that X system will beat the Wii graphically.

    If there was another console that had been released, that was very similar to the Wii in most aspects, I bet 60 % of our topics would be arguing between the two groups of fanboys too.

    cool, i guess that clears that up then. Just it seems quite funny how heated the arguments get between the xbox 360 and ps3.

    I can see the Wii having a good run in this console generation. Like you said, the Wii offers a totally different gameplay. The wii, as such doesn't have any direct competition, the only being the PS3 and its controller but we all know that sucks in comparsion.

    When it comes to games designers; if they want a game that uses motion sensing the wii is really the only option. If a company wanted a good graphical game then theres severe competition between ps3 and xbox 360 like you just said - meaning one console is going to loose out along the way.

    There have been threads about hate for other consoles... but what can you do...

    I can say the 360 looks good...

    The PS3 looks good too...

    the Wii looks mediocre by visual comparison...

    But I know Nintendo are getting my money...

    If I want nice graphics I'll play something on my PC (X850pro 256mg graphics card)...

    I might go an join some PS3 forums and install Elder Scrolls : Oblivion, Need for Speed Carbon & CoD3 and show them that the PS3 isn't that "advanced" because my PC graphics card (its about 150) isn't top of the range

    If I cared enough about the PS3 id hate it but I dont, it looks pretty good in truth bar the price, but ive already got a 360 and getting a wii. Sony in general on the other hand I do hate.

    Most Sony fans argue to cover up the fact that Sony have made a shit console, they are just trying to make themselves believe it's good, not us.

    Trading my Wii again! Come on home 360!
