    I've had my wii since January of 2007 and I love it. I decided to get a PS3 a few days ago simply because it's a good price for a blu-ray player.

    I have to say, the 40 gig hard drive and downloadable demos are awesome.
    Here are pro's and cons as i see it.

    Pros of PS3:
    hard drive
    downloadable playable game demos
    downloadable movie previews
    the most amazing video game graphics i've ever seen

    Con's of PS3:
    After playing the wii for a year I'm finding it really hard to use an old style controller. The wii is soo much better in terms of how you control a first person shooter.
    I rented devil may cry 4...it took it 25 minutes to "install" the game before I could play


    All in all I think having both is a great combination..now I get amazing graphics when i want to on the PS3 and I get the awesome gameplay provided on the wii games...best of both worlds.

    BTW..I downloaded a bunch of Game demos on the PS3 and the hard drive is already half full!

    Summary- ---- the wii's controlers beat the crap out of PS3 and the PS3's graphics beat the crap out of wii

    I guess you have a balanced combination of graphics and movement there mate. :)

    I have a PS3, and I disagree with your opinion of the FPS controls that are "better" on the Wii. After playing MoHH2 on the Wii for too long, my hand starts getting tired quickly, and it's really uncomfortable. Also, I find much greater accuracy for standard dual analog stick controls.

    Just my opinion, but FPS's on the Wii basically suck anyway...

    I'll probably just need to get use to the analog sticks..... i find it really easy to aim using the pointer...hard to aim with the sticks...

    Time will tell

    I find them both to good, analog and pointer.
    I kinda like the pointer since you aim directly where you place the pointer.
    But I also like both hands on one controller.Its more comfortable, well to me.

    You just suck using classic controller :p I can shoot someone down in a split second easy.

    As for the DMC4 thing, thats Capcom's fault. They didn't give the players a choice whether they wanted to install or not. But 360 doesn't have that problem because you are not required to install.

    Why does everyone classify the PS3 or 360 as their "graphic" console and the Wii for "gameplay", do you believe your PS3 has worse gameplay?

    the OP didnt say that. he/she said that the controls were better. controls are the major part of gameplay but gameplay doesnt only consist of controls. what makes the ps3 and 360 from last generation gaming wise beside the graphics. basically nothing. thats maybe another reason why people say that.
