    well i had a debate yesterday about which system has the most power not game play or fun, im talkin straight power, and in the long run it turned to be which console will last the longest and which is just a fad.

    my choice is the PS3...pure muscle and even though the games are rare at the moment there is a whole new world that hasnt been opened yet with that system

    Even though I have a Wii and a PS3, this is still a great bit of background information. Thanks for the info.

    Let me preface this by saying, I like the Wii. But looking at the system specs (pure hardware), some of the Wii's hardware is pretty pathetic. Storage space being the most obvious. For comparison sake, my home computer has 4x the amount of RAM than the Wii has STORAGE SPACE.

    PS3 is definitely top in hardware.

    Personally, I'd choose the Xbox 360 any day. This is mainly due to the fact that the online play and the games it has to offer is amazing. Now, even though I own a Nintendo Wii, I rarely play it due to the lack of online play and games such as Brawl. However, this can also be due to the fact that I have yet to pick up Galaxy because I'm short on funds. Nonetheless, I would still choose the Xbox 360 over the PS3 and or the Wii.
