    Who do you honestly think will win? Pretend those are the only consoles. Dont bring in any thing elsel ike PC. What system will be more powerful with better games and graphics? Personalyl I think playstation 3 just because its graphics look the best out of 360 and Wii, it will have some of the best games ever like RE5, DMC 4, MGS 4, Killzone 2, GTA 4, Oblivion...etc and Sony is trying like crazy to make it amazing. DO you guys honestly think the Wii will beat the 360 and ps3? I'd say it has a chance of beating 360...maybe. 360 better fix its freezing problem and needs to get some good games on there that are only for it.

    I see you're one of those people that are blinded and are not a true gamer, as you should know, gaming isnt just about graphics, it's about how the game feels. The playstation 3, has a very good chance at failing, because it has a thing called blue-ray which is way too ahead of it's time.

    The 360 just seems to be an xbox 1.5, with revamped graphics, though the 360 will soon have it's #1 title, Halo 3. I have a distaste for Sony and Microsoft, but the only distaste is how they smack all this junk at you that you dont need to make your gaming experience fun.

    Sony's Playstation 3 is a system with superb graphics, but where is the real new stuff? Sure, the PS3 is adding blue-ray, but do us gamers need it to make the games funner? No, sony is actually full of themselves this time, they've won the console war two times in a row, and now they're cocky.

    But your question is, which console is the best? Well I have to say the Nintendo Wii, why? Simply because it's something new, creative, and innovative. Nintendo stays true to gaming, and now they're taking gaming to the next level, taking video games to the next level isnt necessarily improving the systems graphics, you should know that, that tactic works only for a little while.

    Now about games, Nintendo has many legendary franchises that can blow away any Sony franchise, even though most of sony's exclusive franchises arnt even made by them. With titles coming to the Wii like Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess, Red Steel, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Sonic Wild-Fire, ExciteTruck, Wario Ware Smooth Moves, Disaster: Day of Crisis, Project Hammer, and many many more titles, I say the Wii is in fact tougher when it comes to what really matters, the gaming.

    And Sony putting in a lot to make the PS3 great? I'm sorry but any brain dead monkey can stick in extra crap that the average gamer doesnt need into a console. Nintendo has been trying the most, I mean this new freestyle controller that is positively significant. Sony has kept the same design on their controller basically since the PSone except they added analog sticks and now they added a middle button on the controller similar to the Xbox 360 controller.

    Wii is something us gamers have truly wanted ever since the last console war began, Nintendo is once again, going to change the industry in a significant way. You should always remember that graphics arnt what make a system, a legend. And I will say that I truly believe the Nintendo Wii has a great chance at winning this console war, yet since playstations are a fad, and all the supposed "cool" people want it, theres still a lot to speculate.

    Overall, if you're a gamer at heart and know what gaming is, then you will not be distracted by a systems graphics, you will study the consoles true meaning of being a console, the gameplay. We are all entitled to opinions, but I will say that games not being all about graphics is a fact.

    First I'll address a question you had about what a Togg incident was, in another thread.

    A Togg incident: Basicly this guy named Togg came on to this forum and made a bunch of flaming anti-Nintendo comments and was very rude and suggestive. This was the first real flamer we had on this relaxed forum and he just brought the mood down. You won't find more than one or two posts if you search his name because they were deleted for obcene language.

    So now, we are all a bit on edge whenever we start hearing people who say they don't like Wii, or whatever. Obviously, you are no Togg.

    Now anyway, you are asking if Wii will win. I don't know what win really means, so maybe you could elaborate.

    If you are asking which will have the best games and most innovative technology, that's an opinion.

    If you're only talking graphics, then the PS3 wins, but only if it's realism you're craving. There are great games, like Sly Cooper and Zelda: Wind Waker that don't look real, but do look cool.

    If gameplay is at the top of your list, then that depends on if you mean how well the developers set it up on a specific controller, or if you mean the controller itself. Again, this is opinion: the PS3 controller is shaped almost exactly like the PS2 and the PS2 controller was one of the most uncomfortable and poorly layed out controllers I ever used because it wasn't contoured and with the joysticks right next to each other, playing first person shooters was very clumsy. The PS3 controller will, however, have a motion sensor, but that's probably only going to be used in flying and driving games, and it loses rumble feedback. Compare the PS3 controller to the Xbox 360's controller, and anyone will tell you it's extremely comfortable and great for FPSs, has rumble, but doesn't have motion sensitivity.

    Now, compare those two to Wii's Wiimote/Nunchuk combo, which is very similar to a keyboard/mouse setup, which everyone pretty much agrees is the best for FPSs. In games like Red Steel, you will be able to slash and parry, most likely in real-time, as if you were holding the sword in your hand, which neither the Xbox 360, PS3, or PC can give you. But, in 2D fighters, the Wii's controller would be over kill and so that's where the Xbox 360 or PS3 controller would be better, but then again, most 2D fighters will most likely be played with the Gamecube controller on Wii, so now you have two very ergonomic controllers to choose from.

    So, as you can see, there really is no winner because it's not a console race, it's more of a console gulag.

    Now, will I be buying a PS3? Not for a loong time because it's over priced, uses Blu-Ray, which I don't trust yet, doesn't have a history of good FPSs, and since I'm usually into games that come out on all consoles, like the Splinter Cell series, I'll just buy the good-enough-graphics version for Xbox 360 (when ever I get a 360; still love the first Xbox). I'll get Wii because of it's outstanding adventure games like Legend of Zelda: TW, Metroid Prime: Corruption, and great fighters like SSBB.

    Just to let you know, I own a PS2 (although it was given to me just recently) and there are some great games for it, like the Jak&Daxter series, Rachet&Clank series, and unique games like Katamari Damacy and Shadow of the Colossus. I never got a PS2 until now because most of my games were all-console games and the PS2 version was always the weakist when it came to graphics and features.

    I too never loved the Gamecube. I sold it about a year after buying it and bought an Xbox because it had so few games I couldn't get a better Xbox-version of. Now, I can't wait for Wii because I can play all the Gamecube games I missed aswell as the new Wii games that look quite innovative/fun and the VC games that I haven't played in a long time.

    Well, I think that was one of my largest posts ever, so now I'm going to take a nap on the floor.:zzz:

    Yes I quite am posting a lot! :D Anyways, I believe the Wii is definately for true gamers, everyone that grew up playing video games back in the 8-16 bit times knows what gaming is, not like these n00b wannabe gamers with their Playstation 2 and xbox.

    Interesting. Well no offense but you're wrong about the whole "you're only a true gamer if you like nintendo". Its a matter of taste and opinion. Someone growing up playing nintendo is obviously going to be a fan of nintendo as I grew up a fan of sony. My first video game I ever played ever was Medievil for Playstation and ever since I've stuck with the playstation. Well personally I think ps3 will win if the console runs the way its supposed to and there aren't faults in it. But there probably will be on launch and they'll probably have to fix it like every other console. Yea about that whole blu-ray thing what exactly is it and how is it ahead of time? And just out of curiosity, I always thoguht gamecube was a panzy cause it couldn't play dvd's or cd's. Im assuming the Wii will be able to play dvd's and cd's right? And possibly more?

    I seriously don't get why people care if consoles play dvds, I mean don't you have a PC and a DVD player anyway? I had an Xbox (sold it because after DOA 4 and Halo there was nothing else worth playing) which I used as a dvd player but the playback sucked so I switched to using my PC.

    I see it the same way, I mean why do people care about any of that extra crap at all? We buy game systems for what they're GAME systems, not because there's some added technology that doesnt have anything to do with our gaming experience.

    Like I can see with the Playstations that it is viewed as a cheap way of getting a new media player (since ps2's were cheap DVD players and the PS3 is a cheap blu ray player) but honestly it is irrelevant to gaming. Honestly, I think the playstation has some quite good games for it, but the price is just stupid, cutting technology would not affect those good games. For the Xbox... okay my non-serious, anti-xbox answer is that its for people without friends, that's why so few games have splitscreen multiplayer and it's all online, but seriously, it lacks good games, especially exclusive good games. Maybe I will get a playstation when the price drops and when the 2nd version comes out, or an xbox if the releases pick up, but the only console you can be confident that it will be affordable, non-buggy, with enough solid games released is the wii.

    Yeah, I'm going to have to agree. That guy talking about gulag makes no...wait that's me!!:(

    I'm so bad when it comes to spelling sometimes. I meant to say goulash: an eclectic and uncoordinated mixture of something, not gulag: an acronym, meaning Glavnoe Upravlenie Lagerei, or Main Camp Administration.:lol:

    Hahaha, this conversation has gotten so off topic thanks to me. I promise to always type odd words into google before I post.

    Anyway, now back to the subject.
    I agree with you on this one, Gewtin. You don't have to be a fan of any console to truly be a gamer. My uncle was the only reason I started with a SNES; up until then, I didn't know anything about videogames. I was born in 1988 and live in central-Missouri so give me a break here, everyone. From there, I sold that after a few years and bought an N64, my favorite console of all; Starfox64 was my favorite because of the scope and style it had.

    I could just as easily have been given a Playstation and would probably grown fond of it instead, or a PC and gone that route.

    Now, what I said in that first post was a bit long winded and obviously a bit confussing. I should have said all consoles and their strenghts and weaknesses when it comes to hardware, but it's the games that we play, not the console itself. If a console doesn't have enough interesting games, or has weaker versions (meaning poor graphics, no online play where the other version do, etc) of games that are available on all consoles, I can't justify the cost. When I bought the gamecube, I liked it, but soon found the Xbox to have most of the games I played on the Xbox but with better graphics and online play.

    Every next-gen console, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii, I believe are the best for what they are made for.

    PS3 will have the best looking games, many of which will be fun to play, it'll get the weird/cool games like Katamari Damacy and Rez, and all of it's great franchises, GTA, Jak, Rachet&Clank, MGS, etc. will come out as the best version (unlike in the past, where the Xbox version of GTA and MGS were better than the PS2).

    The Xbox 360 will have the best exclusive shooters, a.k.a Halo 3 and Gears of War with more to follow and probably the best online setup because Xbox Live is THE BEST ONLINE SYSTEM currently and everyone knows that.

    And Wii, of course, has the most innovative, and really, intelligent contoller ever conjured up; I had always thought before Wii, "if only you had some kind of joystick or pressure sensetive buttons on a keyboard so when you're playing FPSs on a PC, you would aim with the mouse like normal, and then push on a joystick so you could have variable speed, rather than two actions: moving and not moving." Already, Nintendo has shown they have 3rd party support from EA, Ubisoft, Sega, and Activison (the Tony Hawk makers) and each company wants to develop their game specificly for the hardware to make it a new/exciting experience. At the same time two out of the three Nintendo-staple-series, Zelda and Metroid (Mario being the third), will be available at launch.

    I don't think any specific console is beating another. We, the gamers, are the winners this time around.

    ...and they all lived happily ever after. The End.:D

    Yea well, I hope re5's graphics are as good as the RE1 remake cuz fucking hell when i saw those graphics i was like "theres no way gamecube can do that". Well anyways i agree the ps3 is fucking expensive which is basically the only thing stopping its garunteed first place. Also there arent alot of good launch titles, the better games are prepared for 2007 and 2008. But this is just theb eginning right, go back to 2000 when ps2 first came out and like 2002 when xbox and gamecube came out. Now its 2006. Imagine the games in 2010!! Anyways ps3 for me im just here to read about what ps3 is up against and im pretty sure it will beat the 360. Sony has held the crown for the best console twice now for both playstation and playstation 2. Lets see what ps3 turns out to be. Seeing as how im talking about ps3 so much on a nintendo site, i heard theres a re game coming out for wii? Whats its name and whats gonig to be happening in it?

    I like the idea of the rumors on Wii, where if you want to play DVD's you can pay for that, or if you don't, then don't pay for it and it won't do it out of the box.

    and
    Oh please! I don't care if the GC had access to DVDs and CDs, or whether I could play PC games on it, personally I would rather play them on my PC or in the CD/DVD player next to the GC in my lounge room. These extra features enhance the console but they don't improve the quality of the games that are played on these consoles. I didn't mind at all about the small disc size for the GC games as I knew straight away that Nintendo was trying to minimise the loading times that often disrupt game flow for XBOX, PS# and PC. When I played Metroid Prime the graphics were great quality and the gameplay great fun and there was hardly any loading times - longest was about 3 - 4 seconds. And I didn't realise the loading time because it was a video clip that was very cleverly placed when changing from level to level showing Samus Aran standing on the portal and moving to another while on the moving portal. The loading data was being run at the same time as the video clip and there were no load bars at all in this game.

    I'm sure everyone knows that the larger the disc used in the game console for playing a game, the longer the loading time it takes to load the game so that you can play it.

    Interesting statement. It's almost like saying consoles will never win if there are no people to get them interested in them in the first place. Same with games.

    Thats almost like playing computer games again but in the lounge room instead of the computer room. Hence the reason I don't like XBOX. Online playing? Sounds like fun, tried it, enjoyed it but I find its a hell lot more fun playing against someone in the same room. Super Smash Bros Melee anyone?
    Another thing is that I get dead bored with FPS as they are all the same really and there's not much change from one FPS to another. Halo vs TimeSplitters is an example. Although I've played doom 1. That was fun even tho the graphics sucked real bad relative to my GC and the computer games that are currently in store.

    I admit I grew up with Nintendo as a school kid and am still a fan of their games!

    The other thing with the FPS's is that they play far better on a mouse and keyboard than on a control pad and since just about all xbox shooters are on pc, that sort of debunks it. I really don't have a problem with playstation (except that I think the technology raising the price is bad for them), and I think once the price drops and the next releases in sony's exclusive series come it will really hit off, but, especially with its rejection by Japan, I have no faith in the xbox
