    Some of the ps3 pros are kind of uninteresting to me. i mean (not trying to sound like a fanboy) but i really dont care to much about the "Amazing" technology in my console. Pros and cons should bassically consist of gameplay/games/accesories/online and maybe simplicity. ofcourse, you need solid hardware, but i dont think its that big of a deal as long as the graphics are decent and the games run smoothly.


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.

    I like that comment, i dont care about specs its about how it plays, good grphixs no good gameplay make a bad game!
    It should be all round, not just bout one thing. One could potentialy mess a game up. Say bomberman, man it waz good on N64, now look at it, a total mess man, and B=Act Zero, One word(Garbage)

    Wii Pros:
    -Controller
    -Game library -- fun and interesting
    -Virtual console
    -Slim, sleek design
    -Full backward compatibility with GameCube games

    Wii Cons:
    -480p
    -No multimedia features
    -No online gaming (yet)
    -No ethernet port onboard (out of the box). I don't like using WiFi more than I have to.
    -Miis are really nice (they just need used more)

    Xbox 360 Pros:
    -Halo
    -Xbox Live is well established
    -HD graphics
    -Limited backward compatibility, but things that are backward compatible are upconverted to HD
    -DVD upconversion (over PC output or the upcoming HDMI)

    Xbox 360 Cons:
    -Small hard disk no matter what configuration
    -Noisy fan
    -No full backward compatibility
    -Expensive to get "full potential" (such as the HD-DVD drive)
    -Online gaming costs money

    PS3 Pros:
    -Sony game developers
    -Wireless, rechargable controllers
    -Bluetooth compatibility with a variety of devices (including keyboards/mice as of Firmware 1.6)
    -Near-full backward compatibility (US version), ~75% with the UK version
    -HDMI output
    -Stunning, HD visuals
    -Interfaces with the PSP
    -Ability to install another operating system (like Linux) out of the box for a true multimedia experience
    -Folding@Home is great for research
    -Online gaming is free
    -Some hardware is software upgradable (such as the BluRay drive with Firmware 1.6 -- it can now read burned BluRay discs).
    -Playstation Home (upcoming)
    -Gigabit ethernet AND WiFi onboard
    -Unlimited memory cards for PS2 and PS1 games (as much room as there is HD space)
    -Ability to save game and program data onto USB memory devices
    -Can play back many formats, such as WMA (since firmware 1.6) and MP3
    -BluRay playback out of the box

    PS3 Cons:
    -It's a bit expensive (but a good value if you use all the features)
    -No HD upconversion (though Sony has stated they are adding it for movies (maybe games later, through software emulation -- currently rumored)

    It may look like the PS3 has the most pros... It has the most pros, to me. It's not necessarily better (or worse).

    A little about me, I am a gamer with a desire to use multimedia in any way possible - multimedia on video game consoles is a large advantage to me, and high definition is almost a requirement (the Wii is the only thing I have that isn't HD). To others, the list may be vastly different. I find myself using the PS3 the most, though.
    man the ps3 is turning more and more into comp >_<
    I have the wii!!!! i know i suck at spelling!

    Rep me if I did good.
    Spoiler Alert!

    thats a really overall great post
    but i have to disagree with 2 things
    Wiis pro: great library, should be moved over to 360
    wiis library...blows...everyone knows it, nothing keeps you interested for to long (except for zelda which is also a gc game) people are waiting for mario/metriod/what not
    360 has all the bit hit games already out

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    Hi, i own all 3 consoles, im not a fanboy and i havent read the replys in this thread! cbf!

    ill just give my opinion

    Wii
    Pros:
    - Good gameplay
    - Classic games off the virtual console
    - Motion sensing is fun for SOME games
    - nice n slick console, white and nice design.
    - very quiet, except when it does that reading disc thing, it makes a little click noise as if ur wiis gonna snap itself.

    Cons:
    - Poor internet connection via Wi-fi AND wireless (i have both)
    - Motion sensing controller gets boring after a while for some people
    - Poor graphics (compared to the others)
    - Controllers drain the crap out of batteries, which i find can be quite costly, eventually u'll use enough batteries that u couldve bought a ps3 with.
    - Seems like nintendo is making a lot of games for kids, which is pretty bad cause im not a kid anymore. but i still enjoy some of them
    - Some games are really poorly made for the wiimotionsensing controller, IE some of the mini games on super monkey balls.
    - Everytime a 2nd or 3rd etc player wants to play, u have to go to stupid remote settings and reconnect the controllers! it gets a bit annoyin for me after a while.


    360
    Pros:
    - Massive online support because its been out for a year now
    - Some great titles! e.g. gears of war.
    - Graphics are very good on HDMI games! even comparable to the ps3 atm.
    - Can play music while playing games... but my pcs next to me anyway :S
    - Rumble in controller

    Cons:
    - Heavy and ugly console imo
    - Complicated controller
    - Still quite expensive after a year..
    - i Clocked gears of war in 2 days.
    - Internet connection is unstable and online play LAGS!
    - U have to pay for online gaming subscription.
    - FREAKING TOO LOUD! and alot of 360 owners have the overheating problem.


    PS3
    Pros:
    - Console looks very nice
    - Can play ps2 and ps1 games (depending which version u have)
    - Motion sensing controller and its fairly light in weight
    - Graphics are awesome, regardless whether u have a 1080p tv or not (i dont have one), unless u use a shitbox as a tv.
    - Blu-ray
    - Internet connection is fast and stable
    - Online shop thingo
    - Free online play
    - Very quiet

    Cons:
    - A tad expensive, but as i said ur gonna end up using enough batteries on the wiimote to be able to afford a ps3 anyway.
    - Quite a large console
    - Have lost a few exclusive titles to 360
    - Competing against Bill gates... i wouldn't want to be his competitor thats for sure.


    Thats all from me, our of all 3 consoles i found that i became bored of the 360 the fastest. Wii gets pretty boring for me sometimes too, but its enjoyable when family or friends come over, a party-like console i guess.
    PS3 is something u would probably enjoy most playing by urself, admire the graphics and cinematics, and show them off to ur friends i guess.

    if i were to rate them it would be

    1st: PS3
    2nd: Wii
    3rd: my computer
    4th: going to work
    5th: sitting in my chair scratching myself
    6th: do something boring
    7th: play the xbox 360

    As i said im not a fanboy of any console these are just my opinions!

    the price of the PS3 isnt such a high price if you do a little maths.
    the ps3 with the 60gb hard drive is only about 10-20 more then a 360 would cost if it cam with a 60gb hardrive instead of the 20gb you get
