    I know that this is wii forum and most of you will say get wii
    but can you list some reasons why you chose wii over ps3?
    I just can't think of good games for wii beside Mario
    and zelda and metroid prime are not my type.

    Ok lets go through everything!

    A Wii is $250 a PS3 is $600 that should tell you right there what to get!!

    I know i've read all the boards about PS3's having problems and wii's having next to none and how PS3 may have good games now but the wii will be coming out with some of the best like SSB-B....But you've got to realize the wii developers have little creatures that live in the internet(Ever here of a Mii?) who write all these horrible things about the ps3 and erase all the negatives for the wii...

    These are all great reasons to buy a PS3 instead of a Wii!!!

    oh ...haha... ok... thanks.
    i just sold my gamecube, hoping that i get wii and run it with component cable since gamecube component cable is super rare and costs over $60 on ebay, but then i couldn't find any other reasons to get wii beside mario, and someone told me that wii is just experimental in terms of using virtua console, having GC slots, and GC graphics, and control and wii2 will be awesome but just pass wii1.

    and I kinda agreed with him so, i just wanted to make sure.

    You can spend $600 for a system with no good games and technology the average person doesn't have the capability to use.

    Or you can spend $250 for a system with a plethora of great games.

    I think the main reason to buy a game console is the selection of games that it offers. The Wii has great new controls with the wiimote, but the game library (at least right now) mostly depends on the big first party offerings. You only like one of three of Nintendo's biggest franchises, and it's not even out yet. However, the PS3 doesn't have much in its game library yet either, so I think you'll have to look at what's coming out for both consoles.

    Current/upcoming for Wii - Zelda, Sonic & the Secret Rings, SSX Blur, Metroid, Mario Party 8, Sadness, Animal Crossing, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Disaster: Day of Crisis, Project H.A.M.M.E.R., No More Heroes, Super Paper Mario, Big Brain Academy, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Mario Strikers Charged.

    Current/upcoming for PS3 - Resistance: Fall of Man, White Knight Story, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Gran Turismo 5, Final Fantasy XIII/Versus XIII, LittleBigPlanet, Rachet and Clank 5, Metal Gear Solid 4, Devil May Cry 4, Tekken 6

    The lists are nowhere near exhaustive. You also have the option of X360 games with its own list of exclusives, and there are also games that are coming to both the PS3 and X360 that won't be on the Wii. Personally, I have a Wii and will be getting a PS3 in the future when more of the games I'm interested in are released.

    well, I am not interested in games that are not super masterpiece.
    Because of this reason, I am not really into animal crossing, ssx blur, sonic type of games.

    In my opinion
    Wii - virtua console games, GC games, Mario Galaxy, RE umbrella chronicle and that's it.

    ps3 - FF13/versus, MGS4, DMC4, Tekken6, NG sigma, Gran Turismo 5, Sega Rally, McColin's Rally, Assassin's Creed, Alone in the Dark 5, God of War 3, Kingdom Hearts3, Resident Evil 5.

    it sounds like you like the PS3 games better. If budget isn't a problem you should buy that then. Zelda and Metroid are two of the biggest games for this system, if you don't like that then you're shutting out half of the big 4 games coming out this year (others are Galaxy and Smash Bros). As much as I love my wii, it just doesn't seem to be up your alley.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy a PS3 unless I had a kickass HDTV that i could utilize the hd output with games and bluray discs.

    Yea, if you can afford the PS3 and an awesome HDTV it is probably the route to take. I have and love the Wii, but would still really like to have the PS3--with the proper setup of course. On the other hand, the Wii has enormous capability. Being a Nontendo fan for most of my life, the Virtual Console is just awesome--especially when ALL of the oldtime favorites become available; really, it's awesome having them right there on the hard drive and a point and click away from being played--plus all the favorites that never had a save option now can be saved; even say Tecmo Bowl--play through half of the second quarter and come back and finish the game tommorrow. Plus, being able to play the Gamecube games is absolutely amazing as well. And the Wii graphics, to me, I will say it again, not that much below the PS3; yes, the digital quality is beyond belief with the PS3 but toe to toe and for the money there is really not that much to make me throw down and extra several hundred dollars and then need a new state of the art tv. But if you have the money just get both--what's another $260 for the awesomeness of the Wii? If you grew up with Nintendo like many of us have you can't go wrong with the Wii!

    Lol, you've got amazing taste in games Mr/Mrs JoonKimDDS, I'd personally go for the PS3, because I want Final Fantasy 13/versus. But I bought the Wii for games such as SSBB. Since most of the games you like are on PS3, get a PS3.

    Just make sure you have a good TV. Otherwise it's pointless

    Get what you want. I had a Wii and got bored of it after a month. So I got a 360 instead, get a 360 or if you have it already get a PS3. But the wii is really boring after a while and is more of a kids age group,I am 18 so I got bored of it mad fast, I need those gore games.

    I would buy a 360 over a PS3. BTW if your TV isn't full 1080p don't buy a PS3. True some of the games are in 720p, but there is no point in spending that much money if you don't have a TV that can fully display every game.

    One of my older bros got the Wii first because it was cheep and it was all the money he had left for Christmas. We also usually always get the newest Nintendo system. I'm waiting for the black Wii so I can have one for myself.

    We have the PS1 and PS2, but we never bought them right when they came out. I think its gonna be the same for the PS3. We're waiting for the release of Little Big Planet, Home, and Final Fantasy XIII before we dish out the cash for a couple PS3's. Ive got 2 bros in dorms, one with his own house, and I still live with my parents. Our PS3's online is gonna be sick.

    I would suggest waiting. Neither the Wii nor the PS3 has any amazing games out right now.

    If you have to have a system though, and want the system with the nicest goods. Then get the PS3. The wiis technology is 4 years old, its graphics are incredibly outdated. The Wiis strong point is in its controller and the games are not masterpieces. They are fun but not for anyone looking for depthy games. The PS3 does have some nice titles coming out for it, FF being a great one.

    The PS3 will be hard to get later also when theres a greater demand for it. By the way, if your not ready to spend 600 on a multi-media device. I would suggest getting the psp.

    Yes i know a lot of wiiboys will flame me, because their epeens are at stake. But i like all the systems for their strong points. PS3 has more of a future than the wii, so its initial investment will be worth it in the long run, compared to the short term fun offered by the wii.

    I bought 360 4months ago and i had to exchange/fix/use warranty 6 times within 4 months due to freezing/red lights/disc reading problem.

    I have a coffin of my xbox360 that MS sent me so I can send back to MS for repair. Again, this is 6th times within 4 months.
    So i got sick of how much xbox360 has problem and that's why I am selling xbox360 for $180 at gamestop and get either wii or ps3.

    I loved gears of war for xbox360 and also expected to get halo3, bioshock, alan wake but no matter how good those games are, if the system breaks, that's the end of the game.:wtf:

    It mainly depends on the factors that interest you: Price, Graphics, Gameplay ext. The Wii is $250 while the PS3 is $500-600. The PS3 clearly has better graphics while the Wii has better gameplay. So as I said, it depends on what you like. Also consider an X-Box 360...it has the graphics and the gameplay.

    A Wii and a 360 amounts to only $50 more than the PS3, which is a fantastic deal.

    Um.... ok. The first step towards safe commenting. Read the entire thread.

    The OP said he already owns a 360 and doesnt like it.

    Buy a dictionary!!!
    I normally dont care about spelling but my god, get an education! It helps when wanting people to actually consider what you have to say rather than looking over it. Basically, if you want to be taken seriously, dont type like a preschool retard. =)
