    I prefer the Wii60. :)


    You will have to decide this on your own though... Both have pros and cons.

    You should weigh up the pros and cons: The Wii is cheap, has the Virtual Console, backwards compatibility with the Gamecube, and a controller with hundreds of potential uses, but it lacks memory, the support for online gaming is crap, and there aren't too many quality games. The 360 has much better online gaming and loads of top-notch games, but it's more expensive than a Wii, is prone to errors like the legendary red ring of death, and is really more of a hardcore gamer's console (not necessarily a bad thing if you are a hardcore gamer).

    If you can, I recommend you do what I did and get both.

    I have both, and I play them both equally.

    They go well together, each filling the gaps in what the other is missing.

    Also what I did.

    Thing with the RROD, it is much less likely to happen with the new chipset in the newer 360s. I haven't heard of any of the new ones RRODing on any of my friends. I've had my older console do it, but it's over a year old.

    I would have to go with the Xbox 360. Even though I've had issues in regards to the three red rings of death I've found the console to be more entertaining. However, that's mainly due to the fact that it offers games which I prefer over the Wii. Which doesn't go to say I dislike the Wii as I own both consoles.

    The rrod is the only bad thing about the 360

    I dont
    The PS3 is a nice bit of kit
    Only prob with it is where are the good exclusive games (Disgaea 3 aside)

    Choosing between the PS3 and the 360 is really just a choice of what games you prefer, Halo or Final Fantasy.

    360 if you only how get one, but i recomend both.
    and i play the 360 waaaaaaaayyyyyyyy more then the wii. and i have to 360s both fully working one got the RROD a month or two ago but it's fixed now.

    and when i play the wii i always say "OMG when is this Damn Fing game going to finnish it's soooooo boring". but when i play the wii with someone then i say"Man this is sooooo fun, i hpe you never have to go home so we can play for ever" to my friend.

    you don't want a stupid gaybox3shitty, it doesn't even have a web browser!
    Plus they've got too many war games. The Wii has a wide variety too, everyone here knows that!

    To play the Wii online all you need is internet access, the Wii has built WiFi connectivity, and no subscriptions are involved.

    With the 360 you can buy a WiFi connector for another $100 then when you've done that you can fork out another $60 dollars for a single years internet subscription, it's an annual fee!

    On the other hand games like Halo 3 only generate resolution of upto 640p native, the Wii an generate upto 480p!!!!!!!

    The games are obviously visually better on the 360, but the Wii IS NOT BAD! Seriously the Wii has good graphics look @ games like resident evil 4, it's self explanatory!

    Plus Also the 360 has a fail rate of 33%!!!!!!!

    Get a Wii, it still has yet to mature, the games are only gonna get better, developers are gonna really push the graphics 100%, the 360 is already @ it's peak!


    In my opinion the Wii's win! But if you still insist on buying a 360 after that, you'll save much more if you just buy a ps3!

    Hope this helped l8r!!!!!!!!!

    I just wanna shout out to wiichat, WOSSSSSSSSUPP EVERYONE!

    idk ps3 cuz wii well its alright but the pros of wii suck until ssbb come out wii needs a good shooter game with graphics. and the 360 needs to cut down on live. ps3 is my choice(even tho don't have one) cuz blue ray, online is free with voice chat, it even already has a shop thing thats like the everybodies wii channel with demos, and all, and the graphics overal are the best of the 3 systems.

    Yes grapics are the most important
    They make the game good
    Who cares how it plays as long as it looks shiny

    i have both a wii and an xbox 360

    if your looking for good gameplay then choose the wii

    if your looking for top notch games and high quality graphics then i'd go for the xbox 360

    whatever you pick, your gunna have fun on either of em :yesnod:
