    Personally, I like the 360. Yes it has technical issues, but its not nearly as bad as some people say. It has as good as graphics as the PS3, and its cheaper. Good library of games since its been out for 2 years compared to the PS3 1.

    Have you tried the RE for Wii? Those are mature games.

    I know little about either, but based on info I get from other boards, more people recommend the Xbox.

    There are quite a few 'mature' type games on Wii such as Resident Evil:4, Resident Evil: UC, The Godfather, Scarface, Splinter Cell, Mortal Kombat, Manhunt 2 and the upcoming No More Heroes. Id expect any M rated PS2 games released in the future would also be on Wii as well.

    As for choosing between a 360 and PS3 that depends what you want from the system. I would look at the exclusive titles and pick which one has more that interests you. Unless you specifically want a Blueray player for movies i dont think that there is too much to choose between them.

    PS3 has built in Bluray while with the 360 you need to by seperate hardware to play HD-DVD's.

    Bluray and HD-DVD are basiclly the same quality wise. It looks like slowly HD-DVD is losing market share though.

    360 uses standard DVDs with the HD DVD drive being an optional extra for HD movies.

    PS3 uses Blueray disks that can hold a lot more than a standard DVD and can play Blueray movies.

    DVD single layer - 4.7 GB, DVD dual layer - 8.5 GB
    Blueray single layer - 25 GB, Blueray dual layer - 50 GB
    HD DVD single layer - 15 GB, HD DVD dual layer - 30 GB

    In the future Blueray could go up to 200 GB though.

    In terms of gaming it dosent make much difference at the moment though as no developer is going to fill up a Blueray disk, a game that big would just cost too much to make so the only games that might even come close are future PS3 exclusives. Multiplatform games are usually developed with the 360 in mind first though so they are virtually identical on both formats.

So let me get this straight blu-ray and HD are same quility? does 360 have VC channel like the wii? or what is this ps3 home thingy people r talking about? if i buy 360, can I buy castlevania SOTN which i would love to play again.

    Im not sure about the 360 having a web browser yet or not.

    Both 360 and PS3 have downloadable games, either on Xbox Live Arcade or the Playstation Store.

    I think both the 360 and PS3 have downloadable versions of Castlevania SOTN too.

    This is really easy. KEEP the Wii and GET a 360.
    360 is superior to PS3, cheaper, has more and better games, and has far superior online capabilities. The PS3 is not worth it as this point.
    But the Wii has games no other system will ever have which is awesome.
    I have a 360 AND a Wii, and it's the best combo in the world!

    Uh once again... Yes it is... PS3's cheapest console is still more expensive than Xbox's 2nd cheapest. Xbox = $270, $350, then $450. Seriously, kronau how many lies/misinformed info are you going to give on these forums?

    Xbox 360 does not have a Web browser, then again why would you really need one? 360 does indeed have a VC channel like Wii, but with alot more games. PS3 has one too, but with a little bit of games. PS3 and 360 can both download demos, but PS3 has a very small amount compared to 360 which has over a 100 demos you can download.

    So far it looks like you are more of a hardcore gamer and you like online capabilities. I would point you in the direction of the 360. It has a big selection of more mature type games and alot of them are AAA titles. Gears of War, Halo 3, Call of Duty 4, Mass Effect, Bioshock, The Orange Box, etc. The list goes on. PS3 has some titles, but not as much as 360. Though this year they are releasing more titles.

    Btw, those games that you said you already own for the Wii. Those games are like childsplay compared to what 360 already has. In all seriousness if you want the best out of gameplay, get 360 along with the Wii you already have. Its the best combo and costs the same as a 80gig PS3. The only downside is paying $50 for 13 month online subscription ($4 a month). But IMO thats really cheap and its not much of a downside, plus you can usually find the card on sale for $40. There used to be technical issues with Xbox overheating and getting the Red Ring of Death. But its been improved with the current Xbox consoles. Besides even if it does mess up, you have a 3 year warranty where they repair it for free. Since you already have a Wii, you could always play that while you wait. Though ive had my Xbox for a long time and its still like new.

    i'd say base your decision on what games you want to get. browse their libraries and get the system who has the most appealing games.

    I have wii and 360 right now, and will be getting the ps3 later this year. mostly for blu ray at the moment. i have to save and get an HD tv first, which will be by the end of next month and then i'll get the ps3 for the blu ray. Cuz that way i get a game system and a blu ray player for 399 instead of just getting a blu-ray stand alone for the same price.

    I'm not selling my wii for no one, what makes bluray so musch better than regular dvd? How is Assasins creed? Castlevania SOTN is also for 360 right? I'm kinda leaning towards 360 for now. How is Gears of war?
    What the most bloodies, most violent game that is on 360?
    can i buy a smaller controller, i looked at the controlers for 360, so dang huge.

    Do people like Dead Rising?

    I found a 360 used with a wireless controler but Refurbished for 199.99 and 360 pro for 349.99. but what the heck is the pro and the Arcade?
    Wht sorta games does 360 have on so-call VC ? and whats the red ring of death? Is it like the blue screen of death.

    I just went to gamestop.com and on the 360, they got 89 mature games but on ps3 they got only 42.

    Hmmm get darkness, ninja gaiden 1 and 2 and ummmm devil may cry is coming also. But hey you could go and get no more heros in a few weeks right? Also too there is man hunt and the res evil shooter.

    Gears is slow and boring at moments but the chain saw is really bloody.

    Red ring is you box dieing for good. Controller too big well I can't help you there. You sound like you should get the arcade version really cheap since you won't really be doing any downloading. Live cost extra money every month also. You will need an HD TV also. You really should do your own research are you will get pushed into some thing you really don't want by the fan boys. On the internet they are really trying to get people to invest in their systems just because they have. Hit up game trailers and get your self hyped and thing find more info by way of google OK. I don't like dead rising and most stuff on the xbox and PS3 are boring right now simply because they are wasting the tech on realism instead of pushing for better art direction. Then you have boring game play yet that is because of the nature of those systems... catering to online play. If you can make a friend and try it out at their house. If you talk to the PS3 guys the xbox 360 sale are slowing. The xbox guys say that the PS3 is going to be big when home hits and little big planet... yeah right we hope right? Just remember that the masses of gamers are not online right now and these people in most forums are super hardcore and may not even have your tastes in mind.
