    depends on the games you want to play. Both PS3 and Wii are just a piece of hardware, without the games, it can do nothing.

    What is most important to you in your gaming life?

    Is cost an issue?

    Do you care about having Blu-ray or not?

    What type of games are you most interested in?



    If you can answer those questions then you should be part way towards making the decision for yourself.

    I love my Wii.

    I love the style of games that appear on Nintendo systems and am not too bothered about having realistic graphics. Blu-ray? Don't care either way at the moment. Cost? I cannot justify spending 400 on a games console.

    I found out that my Wii was a Wii-aist of money, and my PS3 was not. But thats just me. I enjoy the games on the PS3 much more than the wii, as they (wii) tend to get old fast and the graphical quality is not much better than that of my game cube. The PS3 has also kept me entertained with all its features and ps2/dvd upscaling.

    My advice would be to get a ps3, enjoy the free online content and gaming for replay value and then maybe try out a wii for awhile. Then again, thats just me. I dont know what your personal taste in gaming is.

    Thanks for your replies. I've had a think about what you've all said.
    I think what I really want to know is the following if anyone can advise...

    Can you download previews of games to try out on the Wii from the internet before you buy them?

    Do the handsets take batteries? If so are they rechargable?

    Will a Wii help me get fit!

    I used to have a SNES and used to love the Supermarioworld games. Can these be played on a normal handset?

    Finally are there a lot of extras to buy as I understand everything you need is included in the PS3 pack

    Sorry theres so many questions

    Thanks again

    yes hansets take batteries , u can get a charge station that will charge from ur wii via usb

    you can play some retro games inc nes/snes mario with wiimote or gamecube or classic controller

    I have a wii and love it. However I plan to buy a PS3 at some point within the next year.
    Its the way to go, and the best bet of the current three consoles for the future.
    Also, with the new cheaper version of the PS3 available, you can't go wrong!

    Best advice so far.

    It's simple really - are there games *exclusive* to either platform that you specifically want to play? For us, we specifically wanted to play Zelda and all the Mario variants (Party, Paper, Galaxy). That means a Wii, period.

    If there were games available on both platforms that we were interested in (like Madden for instance), I'm sure we pick the better implementation, which would likely be the PS3 (or 360 for that matter).

    If there were PS3 exclusives we wanted to play, then a PS3, no question.

    At the end of the day, the extra features of the PS3 don't mean a heck of a lot to us (talking non-game related "media" type features).

    When the next Resident Evil and Silent Hill get released - since the horror/survival genre is our favorite - we'll pick the platform they're exclusive to, or the best platform if they're released multi-format!
