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
    Where do you shop? A Ps3 costs $500 - $600 depending on the model and a good HDTV can be had for $699. Vizio 32" HD LCD. So please, tell me where the hell are you getting these prices from?

    Australian prices. And my TV atm is 55-inch, why on earth would I buy a 32" LCD if i have a 55inch TV which would run my Wii fine. So I got my prices from Australia, thats right, not EVERYone is an ignorant american

    Even if that IS the case man (bear in mind that you do NOT get such prices everywhere in the world), do you honestly think that $1200 minimum is a sensible price to enjoy a video games system?????????????????
    I also speak Yoshi, by the way.

    haha thankyou thinktank... for a real PC maybe, but i seriously wouldnt want a PS3 as a 'PC'. 60gig? come on... iPods hold that much :P
    If i wanted a PC id be welll.... sitting here, like i am already, why on earth do i need another one?
    1200 is NOT a sensible price for a videogame console. 400 is MUCH closer, plus that comes with a game to use with it.

    Excuse me? Minimum? I've owned an HDTV, your making it sound like it a madatory part. If you want to step into the next-generation of visual entertainment, it isn't 2 channel sound with standard definition televisions anymore buddy. Not sure where you've been for the past 6 or so years.

    more and more people are converting to HDTV. Do you think when old tv's are breaking down, they're going to buy another crt tv? no they'll probably upgrade to an HDTV.

    I just bought a standard def tv after my old tv went out.

    Graphics hell i could care less. Im still playing my NES from time to time. If you really need snappy graphics and HDTV please walk away from your monitor and go outside and see what real graphics are

    ok, woah woah WOAH..this is getting a bit crazy here..

    did ABC EVER say hey everyone wii sucks, PS3 is so much better everyone should go out and buy one because they're cheap?..

    um no he didnt, all he said was wow i played the PS3 and the graphics are great (no one can really argue there) and he even enforced the idea that graphics arent everything, he said

    sooo..what the hell is this fight about?.. sure the ps3 is expensive, but its cuz its expensive to manufacture...if i had the money right now, there would be a PS3 at my house..

    so stop fighting...its honestly bordering...actually no its already crossed into rediculous/redundant/immature arguing.

    Fully agreed... I am not at all interested in a PS3... But, I played a late build of Motorstorm (sort of rally truck off road) and holy crap, that game is unbelievable! I agree with gameplay over graphics, but the graphics on this game are phenomenal AND the gameplay was insanely cool. They physics engine which manages vehicle motion, damage, momentum, turning, crashing, etc. are all unreal! I stepped over to the Wii and played Excite Truck again and it really is LAME with a capital L compared to Motorstorm. Sure, the controller tilt in Excitetruck is neat at first, but it can't possibly make up for the tremendous difference in the overall graphics (and physics modeling) that the PS3 is capable of.

    I'm still not going to buy a PS3 because it is too damn much money and I need games for my kid to play so I'll still have to go Wii at some point in the future...
