    this is no joke. and the funny thing is, if i knew i couldnt sell the ps3 for a lot of money, i would not trade my wii for one even if i was going to make 350 off of it. here is the link, the proof.

    I agree that Resistance may very well be the only decent game out right now, but give the system an year and I am confident that developers will be able to unleash the full potential of this system and will eventually be a solid system. Until then, the Wii will definitely attract much more people and much more attention! What will Nintendo do at that point is where I think we can fairly compare the two companies and their consoles =)

    I think that's the problem... most people aren't willing to drop $600 and sit on it for a year.

    I don't know if you guys read that part - but it's not just a straight Wii for PS3 trade. You need to put in cash too.

    Impossible! That's crazy!:yikes: Why would someone trade a hard earned PS3 for Wiis and at a loss at that!? Resistance looks like the only good game. Then again, 360 has already established itself as the FPS King so if someone is looking for daily FPS jollies, they would probably opt for the 360. Wii has a variety of launch genres. They're not the best, but hey, at least when you get bored you can pop in something else. It looks like $ony is literally handing it over to BigN and M$ this year. Sell PS3 for a Wii :crazy: April fools right? RIGHT!!?

    Negative. The PC is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the FPS world. :)

    The wii will hold its own as long as developers keep pushing out fun games for it. The PS3 will come into the light eventually when the software is ready. As others have said, resistance is the only good title out right now and unfortunatly it's not good enough to coax me to pick up a machine. I'll pick one up next year around FF XIII time :). Until then, full wii ahead!

    Its true, at the Gamestop by my house, a guy came in and traded in his PS3 60gig for store credit. I asked the employee and he said another PS3 owner traded in his PS3 this morning. :frown2: Silly Sony.

    i had the chance to buy both,but i decided to go for wii only because sony's launch line up is the worst ever and does not justify the 600+ cost.
    1)resistance is a good game,but thats it
    2)there is the option that 3rd parties switch development(it has happened before) to the wii if the user base expands over the ps3.
    3)a second class blue ray player that plays ps3,inclomplete ps2 and ps1 games does not justify the 600+ too.
    4)this is the last because its a personal opinion,in my case my favorite developers are japanese,nintendo,sega,konami,namco,capcom,snk,squareenix,atlus,treasure(RIP),ect,ect
    oviously the 360 is as good in japan as the xbox was(even the regular gba sells more LOL) that only leaves nintendo and sony for this developers,if nintendo grabs a big portion of sonys users plus the always nintendo fans it will generate more installed userbase in japan,leaving sony on second place,that means developers can switch projects or at least bring them to both consoles,that will split the pie like this,graphics(600 +70,80 per game) vs gameplay 250 + 50 per game)
    lets face it,in the americas the 360 will be the winner as long as kids(yes kids too)like snoop dog,50 cents,godfather,scarface,grand theft auto games(wich i consider an insult to the inteligent gamer) over a good storyline and developed game,like many other american,european or japanes developers make,examples how come beyond good and evil sold less than san andreas? come on!how come metroid prime sold less than vice city?

    anyway thats another topic.
    when i want my japanese games ill play my wii,for the rest ill get a 360 one of this days(GOW is awsome thou)

    Ha, I read about this. It's pretty crazy people would accept such a large loss.
