    If you don't like it then sell it. Don't listen to people who tell you 2009 is the year of the Wii because every console will have good releases in 2009.

    Buy the PS3 outright if you can. You'll probably find some enjoyment in the Wii. If you're short on money and completely despise the Wii, go for it.

    I wouldn't personally, I'd keep it, save money and buy a PS3 when you have enough. If your not enjoying the Wii though then sell it, what's holding you back?

    It really depends, if you are not playing the Wii anymore then sell it. If you are still liking the Wii but are really interested in the PS3 and it's games then keep the Wii and buy a PS3.

    Now if you are really strapped for cash then you are gonna have to make a choice, PS3 or Wii. I personally sold my Wii for a PS3 and do not regret it because my Wii started to just sit in the corner and hardly ever turned on. But others still like their Wii, so it's all on you.

    I really wouldn't listen to many people which is why im not really telling you what to do. Just try to make up your mind for yourself because fanboys plague these forums, that goes for Wii fanboys, 360 fanboys and ps3 fanboys.

    Go do some research on games, ask what the best games are, then youtube them and read up on them. Research Research Research! But try to keep the info you research more based on fact instead of asking for peoples "OPINIONS" because people will just tell you what they feel and not true facts (depending on what you ask).

    This is the best advise you can get on this topic. It's up to you to decide what will work best for you. As mentioned above, research both systems, their strong points and weaknesses, determine what type of games suit you and the availability of those games on the two systems and make your decision from that. Personally I love the Wii and would not get rid of it for any console, but that is me, and what suits our gaming needs. You really have to decide this one yourself, but be sure you are armed with as much information as you can get.

    if there are many ps3 games that spark ur interest u should consider getting it. research the games (like T3kNi9e said)!!!
    if u never play ur wii u could sell it but u wont get much for it.
    u may realize that u get a fraction of what all ur games and console costs. and that it wont help much to the cost of a ps3 and u may decide to keep both.
    there are tons of upcoming wii games but if u just dont like then wii sell it.
    if u ask wii fans(like most members on the wii forum) they will say keep the wii but if u ask a ps3 fans they would say the same about the ps3.
    also a tip: what system ur friends have will also increase the online fun.
    good luck

    I had a wii at launch, enjoyed it then sold it after the novelty wore out. Actually I didn't wait long enough for the really good games to be out (bwawl, mario kart, galaxy). I just got another one and it's a keepr for sure. I still don't suggest wii if it's your only console. But if you have either a PS3 or 360 the Wii adds a nice niche of games and has it's own really kool feel and fun factor that the other heavy hitters don't have.

    Depends on what types of games you like. If you like a lot of shooters, or action games then get a PS3 (or a 360 which has 90% of the same games but costs less - initially).
    If you're more of a casual player then consider a 360 if Wii still isn't satisfying you.
    Unlike the casual friendly PS2, the PS3 is really the most 'hardcore' system this generation.

    Don't forget Wii Sports Resort with WiiMotionPlus which gives true 1:1 motion control will be out in a couple months.

    No chance! I love my Wii. I'm a pure casual player. There's absolutely nothing on the PS3 that I want to play. My son has a 360 and so far nothing on it interests me either.

    IMO, the PS3 isn't anything particularly special (this saddens me, since I had some of my best videogame experiences playing though Kingdom Hearts on the PS2 with ShyestGuy and BRizer). The Wii has pretty much all the games I want, but if you don't like your Wii, then do it.

    The Wii is a very good system. Yes, it will be better in 2009 and I suggest you not sell it unless you arent a Nintendo fan. FWI idiots saying: Yeah you sshould definately buy a PS3. Your wrong, PS3 is not that much better than the Wii. It hardly is not better at all and not worth the money speant. Its worth like 400$ or 300$. Thats why sony is so poor right now. They expect to put a 600$ game system out there right now in the days that we are in a recession? They will just end up getting killed like SEGA.

    But... But, its only $400 and Sony's not poor. Your logic just is too strong for me that it is worth $400 and it is $400. I guess you should buy it then.
