    Hi all, sorry for the off topic thread in the wrong part of the forum which may have been posted by others millions of times already. (Impossible to search for a topic like this via the search function for me)

    I've had my wii for about a month now and im already getting a bit bored of some of the games or i've already clocked them, i have 6 games, 3 are finished and the other 3 are based on multiplayer minigames which i dont find myself playing that often.

    Most my friends who bought a Wii have already gone off n bought themselves a 360 already.

    I just wanted to do a little research on whether the 360 is more better or the PS3 is more better (Sorry for all the ps3/360 haters, but this is my favourite forum so i thought i'd ask here). But found myself stuck between the both consoles.

    Basically i realised that the wii is concentrating more on the multiplayer/family type games, so im looking for the console which is more fun when your playing alone @ home, but i never liked being a loner, so thats where the online part kicks in.. and from what i hear xbox 360 supports online games much more than the ps3 will... :S

    Basically from what i've gathered so far:
    (The money really is no problem for me so i wont count that factor in)

    PS3:
    Pros:
    More variety of games (with exclusive games)
    More powerful system
    Better graphics
    No regional lock
    I have one of those TVs that supports blu-ray... u know what i mean that 780i 1080p thing, i dont know which is what but i know my tv will support the ps3 graphics :) (saw some thread where people were complaining that older tvs wouldnt support it and something would scale down apparently)

    Cons:
    Wont be as many online subscribers due to price
    Many good games won't be out till 2008ish

    Xbox360
    Pros:
    Massive online support/alot of subscribers


    Even though the PS3 seems to have more pros, for some odd reason im still leaning towards the xbox360..

    Could you guys please post here on what i have missed out on whether there is anything more i should know about each console. And also if you were in my position, which console you would purchase? Thanks :)

    EDIT: Something i forgot to say - Im not really a Graphics fanatic typa-guy, i really enjoy the gameplay much more.

    Shouldn't this be in the PS3 or Xbox section? Not the Wii section. Just an observation.

    they both suck :D. grab more wii motes and some beers.. best fun ever.

    ahem sorry for that outburst. if i had to choose id go 360, although im not into buying HD movies/blue ray so it might be more of a deciding factor for you. The 360 already has a big library of games so that should defintly be a Pro. i think the whole Xbox 360 experience will remain far more 'fresh' than with the ps3, graphics aside the 360 has more room to suprise and impress imo.

    Yeah, Sorry about that.. lol

    I figured if i posted it in the xbox forum, then ppl would say Xbox is better and
    if i posted it in the ps3 forum, ppl would say the ps3 is better, so i really wanted opinions of Wii owners instead

    The 360 mainly for games like Saint's Row, Dead Rising and Gears (which in my opinion smokes Resistance)

    In a games perspective... i REALLY want
    PS3... Genji - Days of the blade

    360... gears of war, lost planet, dead rising

    this is so frustrating, cause if i choose xbox 360, i'll be getting it tomorrow, if i choose ps3, i'll be getting it mid 2007... :S (not out in australia yet anyway)

    i stayed over my mates house and he had a 360.
    I loved it we stayed up all night and played gears of war co-op
    and nba 07 online which was so fun.
    If i were you id definitely gat a 360.

    ps3 all the way
    xbox sux cuz of one factor: its made by microsoft

    personally i think halo is overrated, and halos the only reason many ppl get an xbox,

    ps3 will have ff games, possibly ffVII, and dmc4.

    you really can't ask people what system is better...everyone will say something different; it's all about their natural (yes, natural) opinion on what they like going for; for example, I want all three systems, and I enjoy the differences between each system that make the system what it is. you cna't base your choice on what other people think or make opinionated comments on it; its your preference. You can lay out the facts for the consoles however and find out which one you like best. I like the PS3 for the games, graphics and gameplay, while I like the Wii for various other reasons like having fun, online play, party games and what not. Whats your style of gaming? It's not like you actually chose when you were born what type of games you naturally like...you know what I mean? For example...I find that lots of Americans (I live in America) love shooter games like the Halo, but I really do not that much...where I live, you almost look like a loser if you get the "kiddish, corny gameplay" Wii. You cannot like anime much or hit shows like Heroes or you will look childish and corny. Even so, I am all for being myself and I enjoy these things because...that's just what i enjoy, I didn't CHOOSE to like what I like...I don't know if you know what I'm trying to get at, but I hope you get the drift.

    Sorry for the big outburst as well, I love communicating, just like how some people like reading naturally while others simply don't...The concept no "educational" parents will ever get lol. It's not like you choose what you like. See ya I hope this was helpful!
