    Honestly, if you have the money to get anything, you should get a PS3. But, if you are on budget, get a Wii!

    If you're interested in great online play and amazing graphics, then go for the XBox 360. If you're more into fun game-play and party entertaining, get the Wii. Both are great, so if you have the money, get both (that's what I and most people did). Good luck getting a 7th generation console.

    As FR said, the online for Xbox 360 is great. The PS3 has a great many exclusives, and I would suggest the Wii only if you have family members close to ya'. 'Cause those fun nights can really be some fun when yall play with ya' family.

    True, good games with online will be coming out in the future, but is the online easy and fun? What we have seen with the Wii's online so far is not very promising. It's nothing compared to XBox Live or PSNetwork. Nintendo needs lobbies, not friend code online playing.

    What? Syntax listed the two, so I finished the list. If he is trying to decide which console to get he might as well consider all three....

    First off let me say this,do not waist your money on a PS3.Yes I said waist.Because if ya buy one thats what your doin.I say this because the 360 is a better console than the PS3.360 has better graphics(although its close the 360 has it beat on most games right now),better games,the best online,its cheaper and getting cheaper,the controllers feel better while playing,games run at faster speeds than the PS3(madden runs at 60 frames on 360 and 30 frames on PS3).So taking all these wonderful things into account I say a 360 is better than a PS3.

    Now after saying all that if I had to choose one it would be the Wii.The Wii is the cheapest of all the consoles by far.It runs quiter,its smaller.It has the best games on any console by far,counting the games that coming out in the near future.Its graphics arent close to the other 2(but they are good,better that the cube abnd PS2) but who really cares.When I play a game I want to play it not watch it.The Wiis online play is a comin.Pokemon and Mario Strikers Charged are out now with more to come soon(Madden,BWII and more).Sure the online isnt as good as the 360 but whos is?No the PS3.But the Wii is a deeper console than the others.Just look at the futuristic(spelling)controls.Also when has anyone ever lost weight when playing a video game.Well you will now with Wii Fit coming out for the Wii.So saying all this I would buy the Wii 1st,the 360 2nd,and I would never buy a PS3 personially.

    If ya have say $499.00 bucks laying around I would recommend saving a little longer or hitting your parents up for about $150.00 more and buy a Wii and 360 both,you will not be disappointed.But if you buy a PS3 dissapointment is exacttly what you'll get.

    Before anyone says anything No I dont have a PS3 myself.But my brother who lives right beside me(about 100 feet apart)has one.I have logged quite a bit on hours on it with him.I have played Resistance Fall of Man,(this is truely the only game I really like on the PS3,but its just to short.The best game they have and you can beat it in 15 hours,horrible),NBA live,Moto Sport(I believe is the name),The Bigs, and more.So yes I have played it a great deal and checked out everything it has to offer just dont like it.Just my opinion,remember I am entitled to it.

    Wow, I didn't know my money had a waist. The graphics are pretty close, but the PS3 is capable of slightly better graphics. Ya, of course games that were ported from the 360 are going to look better on the 360 and the developers have had a year longer to work with the 360. Of course the 360 has better games right now, it has been out for twice as long and has had time to build up a decent library, but if you compare it when it was at the same point in its life it wasn't doing so good. It isn't cheaper once you add all the things you have to buy in. Just paying for Live makes the 360 more expensive than the PS3. The Wii having the best games is completely opinion and you can't state it like a fact. The PS3's online completely pwns that of the Wii. Who buys a console to lose weight anyway? Go running or something, get out of your house. Or does the sun burn your eyes? So if you want great gaming right now, get a 360. If you want a bunch of casual games get a Wii. If you want very great gaming in the future get a PS3.

    ok thanks a lot, yeah i'm a shooter guy, 15
    i don't have enough for ps3 so that ain't part of it
    but yeah good points, i might get wii first though, and save up for 360 later hopefully before halo 3 and gta IV comes out
    but thats only if i find a job before then cause the problem is i like the whole motion sensing thing and since the wii is new it does not have as much stuff
    remember when psp first came out, how badly a lot of things were done and then after a bit everything got really good so thats the only problem

    How would you plan on having your 360 setup? Would you get the core, premium, or elite? Would you get Live? Would you get the charge and play pack? Would you need a WiFi adapter? Because when you add all the thing up the 360 will usually cost more than a PS3. If you just got a Premium 360 and Live it will cost more than a PS3 would. If you like shooters then I wouldn't reccomend the Wii since it doesn't have much in that category. Pretty much all you have for that right now is Red Steel. Also IMO the PSP never got better. It still sucks. I hate mine....

    But you do need to buy an hd tv to experience the full effect of the blu-ray and graphics no? And with the 360 at least hd is an option, unlike blu-ray is.
    So all in all ps3 isn't entirely cheaper than 360.
    And great games for Ps3?..you mean a few exclusives and some more 360 ports?

    Ya, getting either a 360 or a PS3 is pointless if you don't have an HDTV. And what does it matter if HDDVD is an option? That is one of the worst things about the 360. If the 360 use the HDDVD drive for games they could be so much better. I was just having a convo at 360Chat today about how short Gears is. The reason? DVD. If MS would have went with one of the next gen media formats it could have been much longer. But what does that have to do with it being cheaper? Figure you get a premium 360 and Live. Assuming you have the console for five years (since it should be at least that long until the next generation of consoles come out) you will be spending $650. Where you could get a PS3 that has free online, (though it isn't quite as good) Blu-ray, a bigger HDD, and a lot of other **** for $150 less. The PS3 has many great exclusives and more that interest me than the 360. The 360 has more better games out right now, but that is because it has been out for twice as long. You can't expect a console to instantly have an excellent game lineup. But I am actually looking forward to lots of PS3 exclusives, there are only a few 360 exclusives that have been announced that I want. And most of the good games that I'm looking forward to for the 360 are mulitplatform. So IMO the 360 is the best right now, but the PS3 seems to have a much brighter future.
