    Wii vs ps3 vs 360 - whats in the future..? (speculation)

    Ok I know its real early days right now but since were past the launch of all 3 consoles what does everyone expect for the future of wii and its competitors (360+ps3)?

    I'm always really interested when people bring their ideas to the table concerning sony's faux pas and nintendo's genius with these next gen consoles.

    Last year if someone had said to me that nintendo are going to bring out the must have console of the next gen I would have laughed in their face. But damn, its happened.!?

    The "hardcore" gamer is gonna want the "best" graphics and power available so they will buy a ps3 I'm guessing. But the hardcore gamers I know want all 3 next gen consoles. So sony aren't hitting 360 or wii in terms of sales there - and I can't imagine the casual gamer (or any sensible person) paying sony the ps3 asking price when you can get a wii60 for the same price...

    So what's everyones prediction for the next year or two in terms of next gen?

    hardcore gamers who aren't "total" geeks then sorry...
    lol just kidding there. I have been known to play games on the pc - just keeping up with technology and the cost of doing so is too much hassle/money.
    pc sales / usage won't ever effect console sales... too expensive and too complicated. Its a diff market really.
    If pcs were just better than consoles in every way there wouldn't be a console market...
    for the purpose of this lets ignore pcs...

    From my experiences, the pc gamers I have known, are far less geeky than any "hardcore" console gamer I have known. A PC has far more uses, you are buying a console for the sole purpose of playing games. Doesn't really compare when it comes to geekiness. Especially nowadays when virtually everyone has a PC.

    I'm sorry but playing gta some evenings does not compare to reaching level 600+ blah blah on everquest and WoW by playing 24/7... Pc gaming guys are geekier than console owners.

    MMORPG players aren't hardcore gamers. They are hardcore MMORPG players.

    And I am quite obviously not from the U.K. We don't have "neds" or "chavs" per say. All though yes, the wegros here love there GTA. But playng a few hours on GTA wouldn't even constitute being hardcore anyways, so that doesn't really attribute to the point either.

    And hardcore console players, especially younger ones, tend to be a lot more socially inept that pc gamers. This obviously excluding MMORPG players, because they are just a whole different breed.

    Geeze dude are you are one of these people who want to categorize their music into sub genre's of sub genre's of genre's of sub genre's.

    I catagorize a hardcore gamer as someone who spends an excessive amount of time/money on computer games. saying mmorpg players arent really gamers is gettin too technical for my liking. Society in gereral doesn't care...
    Much like the way you will find My Chemical Romance CDs in the Rock/Metal section of HMV when they're actually "emo" / "screamo" or whatever - thing is no-one really cares... And those who do need to get a life...
    To me someone who is gonna buy a ps3, an xbox360 and a wii is a hardcore gamer. Someone who owns a ps2, a gc, an x-box and a sh*t load of games for each console is also in my book - pretty hardcore. (unless you are a kid and your mum/mom bought you them. Then you are just a spoilt brat) - unless you mowed a LOT of lawns or delivered a LOT of papers to pay for it...
