    One gets the feeling this article was written by a PS3 fanboy. I mean, the Wii is just as reliable as the PS3, the PS3's casing is most definitely not "shiny and sexy", and I've never had any problems with my Wii being loud apart from turning it on.

    Trust me, when you have the PS3 and Wii standing beside each other, the PS3 looks likes a piece of modern art. It's also very shiny... so very, very shiny.

    EDIT: My Wii is actually louder than my PS3. That's just my own personal experience though.

    Good points. However the reliability factor can be debated.

    Cool, I personally prefer the different shape of the PS3 over the standard box shape of the Wii - not that the Wii is ugly or anything.

    The LED is definitely cool, but I'm kind of immune to them at this point ;) , my computer fans/HD/power supply have all had them for the past 5-6 years, hehe.

    Who's hungry?

    No doubt the ps3 is the most hideous out of the group. Somethign only a mother "fanboy" could love.

    I acctually think 360 has the best case design by far, if it was smaller it would be the clear winner.

    As for noise I have noticed my Wii making a squeek or two now and then not the loudest for sure but enough to notice.

    I have both a Wii and a PS3, and I have to say, the PS3 looks a lot better when set next to the Wii. I mean, the PS3 is soooo nice and shiny, and it has the chrome lettering of its name running across it. How could you get better than that? The Wii is just plain white. A little bit shiny, but not nearly as much as the PS3. I like the blue light on the Wii around the disk slot, but its barely ever on. It would be nice if you could have the option of having it on whenever the Wii was turned on. Also, my Wii makes more noise than my PS3, but they are both very quiet. The Wii sounds like an electric chicken when you turn it on, and sometimes during games. As far as reliability goes, I would have to say the Wii and PS3 are about even. My PS3 has locked up before, but my Wii tends to lock up during updates every now and then, requiring me to hold down the power button. I installed linux as a secondary operating system on my PS3 and that worked perfectly without any problems at all. Anyway, haha nice pic of the PS3 grill. I hope they didn't wreck a working PS3 to do that. That would be a waste.

    No doubt people are going to like sleek shiny things, which the Wii case doesn't show too much off. But as far as shape goes I perfer a regular rectangle over all of the Wii. I think by the time the price drop the other color might be a little sleeker looking, that's just speculation :x

    _^? ANYWAY, IDK IN MY MIND I FIND BOTH CONSULES TO LOOK SOME WHAT COOL IN THEIR OWN WAY. yEA THE PS3 IS BIG BUT ITS UNIQUE, I LOVE IT FOR THE FACT ITS BLACK AND SHINEY. AND THEN WE HAVE THE WII, SMALL AND COOL BLUE HID. BOTH ARE NICE IN ITS OWN WAY.

    Screw that...the perfect game system will be the first one that is completely upgradeable! Then we can quit buying new ones every 5 years or so, change the drive/software to read whichever discs and use whichever controllers we want, have whichever HDD size we want, etc....Oh wait it's allready been invented...It's called a PC! Lol J/k

    lol pointless, what about price, how fun it is, how hard it is to make a game for it, size, choice( wii has 1 version, others have more- so off putting)

    and yes the ps3 does look ok, i do prefer the 360 tbh

    you could pick about a milllions random headings and any onsole which you like would win
