    It would seem that 360 is pretty much the dud in the consoles war. Anyone who wanted one has got it. And anyone who doesnt may aswelll save up for the PS3 which may aswell be a supercharged 360.
    For those that dont have HD, or dont care as MUCH about graphics (I like HD graphics, but shit painted colourful is still shit) may aswell save their money and buy a Wii. Plus their whole family can enjoy it, aswell as the inclusion of games for the hardcore market.

    Regardless of how Nintendo gets the majority of market share (either by increasing existing market share or creating a new market), victory is victory.

    I'm getting real tired of hearing people suggest that the average joe consumer is going to buy more than one console. That is exception, not the rule. I will not purchase two consoles.
    Who the hell said that the average joe is going to purchase more than one console? The semi-serious gamer will have two console, hardcore... all three. Nintendo knows that they can never compete with Microsoft and Sony in the long run. We;ve seen it in the past, and we'll see it again when the final numbers are released in a few years. Sure, Nintendo ALWAYS does well at launch, even with the shitty Gamecube. But take a look at the final records of the last generation console sales. Here are the numbers to prove it:

    Sega Dreamcast 10.60 million N/A

    Nintendo's route to the gaming world is great for initial sales, but having weak technology doesn't last nearly as long as putting true "next-generation" technology inside a console. For example, let's all guess which of the three systems will have a longer shelf life? Hmmm, the one with no DVD player, the one with a standard DVD player, or the one with a next-generation Blu-Ray drive? As much as you fanbitches don't want to admit it, the long run will be won by Sony. So deal with it. Oh, and next time you bring an argument, back it up with something other than your worthless words.

    Interestingly on ebay, the majority of listings have a PS3 bundled with a 'free Wii', seems poeple do want another console with a free game, as opposed to 3 PS3 games....

    Generally, when people buy a game console they buy it for 1 main thing.. (here it comes) playing video games. Sure you get the fun extras like a DVD player (or Blu-Ray) or being able to play music, but in the end you're not gonna buy it just for that, you'd just go and buy a DVD player or a Blu-Ray player. To me it just comes to as "Oh, that's nice"

    I don't care if Sony is saying PS3 is a computer (as mentioned somewhere in a previous post) people aren't buying it as a computer.

    After all is said and done I just wanna sit down, play a game, and have fun, without spending an arm and leg for extra stuff on the system I'm not ever gonna use, maybe that's my flaw but who knows.

    I might buy a PS3 when it's price goes down because I wanna play some of the games (mainly the SE ones) as I'm a huge fan of the FF and KH series but as for now I'll stick with my old fashioned good 'ol Wii.

    I completely agree with you. The PS3's looking great. It's looking great for very different reasons than the Wii, but looking great nonetheless.

    If you can manage to get your hands on one though, I'd sell it. If you've already got a 360 and a Wii, you have both ends of the spectrum (excellent graphics and excellent gameplay, respectively), and while the 360 will fall short of the ps3's graphical capability, it's not that far behind. You should be able to still make a decent prophet off of ebay.

Everyone hates anything thats not nintendo! Comeon guys, thats just plain hating. Its just someones opinion, and why would they be selling the PS3 if it was as bad as you guys are saying it is. I personally like the Wii much more than the PS3 but still, its going to be a good console. So all i really wanted to say was, lay off ABC, its just his opinion and he can do anything he wants with it. Secondly, stop with all the hating, its really annoying reading u guys continuosly crapping each others opinions. Thirdly, i just wanted to sat to Paintaballer, stop being the biggest hater. All your posts are just hate posts, i mean wtf is up with telling the new guy "Nice Triple Post"? HES ONLY GOT 14 POSTS GOD DAMMIT!

    Yeah, so everyone just lay off each others opinions, i guess u can challenge them as everyone has their right for free speech but u dont have to make it all offensive or hate like.
    OMG your such an idiot! At school anyone who likes the PS3 you always argue why its so crap! (Eg. Jason and Blake). Dont bullshit man just because you want to have friends.... hahaha! SUCK ON THAT BITCHES!

    I'll admit I wouldnt mind a PS3 merely for its graphical prowess, itd go nicely alongside my very fun Wii. But, I dont have the money, and I needed sumthing unique to try and get my whole family back into games, it may payoff, and they can start buying games for it. :P

    Yer pretty much... and thats the point. I dont have 1000buks to spend on a console, which at that point STILL wont have anygames. meanwhile for the same cash i have a wii with 8games. Oh and to enjoy the PS3 fully, I'd need a HD TV, so add another 2000 (6000 to have one the size of our existing TV). At this stage my Wii would have over 60 games and still look just as great on my older TV, which is still huge.
    1 console, no games, and a TV to fully appreciate any HD advantage. OR
    1 console, 68games and a 55-inch TV which displays it perfectly...hmmmmmm
