    Pros
    Wii:
    -Controller brings new style of gameplay to the table. Its simple and fun. If you enjoy simple and fun.
    -Its main console is cheap, easy to assemble and a child could even figure out how to use it.
    -Its happy and cheerful, light weight and definately has style.
    -Can work with portable gaming system DS.
    -Channel system that adds to its firmware.
    -Miis are cute user made dolls which can be used in some games.


    Cons
    wii:
    -The conroller prices are expensive when you have to get another remote+numchuck. The little accessories make up for the low console price.
    -Worst graphical capabilities out of the others. Least advanced hardware short of the controller technology.
    -Game selection leans more towards the rated G target audience.
    -A large tv is usually a must due to the nature of the remote.

    Pros
    Xbox 360
    -A solid game selection.
    -Good online setup
    -functions very well as a dvd player
    -will have a newly added tivo function
    -good hardware (gpu, cpu, hard drive)
    -Price is good for the hardware inside.

    Cons
    Xbox 360
    -Xbox live cost money
    -Nothing innovative
    -Supports HD but does not have an HD drive.
    (a pretty solid system, nothing really new to offer, but also nothing really bad about it)


    Pro
    PS3
    -The best and most expensive hardware setup of all the systems.
    -Blue ray player and reader (blue ray holds up to 50 gigabytes per disc)
    -Controller with basic motion sensoring, will have an added rumble feature later.
    -Best Firmware out of all systems.
    -Runs linux and has a large large mod community. Home brew, games, apps. Downloadable user made software.
    -Runs like a computer. Feels like an open sourse console.
    -HOME.
    -Pleny of third party controllers and technology made for it.
    -Backwards compatability.
    -Works with PSP hand held gaming system.
    -Potential for the greatest online setup.

    Cons
    PS3
    -PRICE. the most expensive system on the market.
    -Lack of great game selection, though depends on the user.
    -Is fairly complicated for the average user.
    - requires a nice tv to really enjoy.

    just commenting on your points:

    Wii: G games might be of plenty, but definitly enough T-M games came out this march and so forth. i got a 17" TV in my room and it picks up controllers fine, its all about the sensor bar. And yea the controllers are expensive >.<

    Xbox360: Good online yeah. and what is Tivo (havnt read up on xbox lately). It might not have much new but its definitly got lots to offer in games.

    Ps3: Why does it have the potential for greatest online setup? And yea its expensive but thats what you get for top of the line. A con to add is that they kinda just bombed most of europe in sales. Hopefully that will speed up.. but they didnt even sell all the consoles on launch so. :/


    My Additions:

    Wii Pros: Great Gameplay. Selection of games for all audiences. Has Super Smash Bros. Brawl! :D

    Wii cons: Graphics are all i really see. But they arent that bad anyways. Its not like they were considered bad 4 months ago before the systems came out. And they will get better so meh.

    Xbox360 Pros: Good online. Lots of games for any hardcore gamer. Only focused on hardcore and mature/teen gamers.

    Xbox360 Cons: Has to keep fresh or may fall behind. Online has alot of annoying people :p

    Ps3 Pros: Other then being powerful i dont really see much. But they have some cool exclusives (if they dont loose them) that should please their fanbase.

    Ps3 Cons: Price Price Price. Sure the Ps3 has the best power and top of the line technology, but Sony failed to realize you need to balance Power and Cost. (Like the Wii). Not the greatest selection of games, but we'll see in future.

    Yes, PS3 has the potential for the greastest online setup. Im talking about at its core, HOME--> which links to various channel like virtual works where your achievements in the games you play effect the world in HOME. Along with what seems like a much more advanced way of meeting players to play games, getting to know them while you play with them in and out of the game. Rewards, contests, trophies, downloads of everysort and business sponsored virtual items. Its potential is there.

    A con is not that they bombed any sort of sales. Because sales have no place in a pro - con list. I dont buy a product because a lot of people bought one, sales dont make a better system. Therefore sales mean nothing for a pros and cons consideration.

    its usually a good idea to refer to current games already released. Every system has good exclusives coming to it.

    Good however is also subjective. Meaning, its not a fact but based purely on the person who plays it. Someone may hate super smash bros and therefor consider it the opposite of a pro. Thats why these things tend to get left out.

    Wii cons: Graphics are all i really see. But they arent that bad anyways. Its not like they were considered bad 4 months ago before the systems came out. And they will get better so meh.

    This is the same with every system. Wii included. The wii games are fun but for how long. Every system needs new material to keep its consumers happy.

    I have all three. These are advantages/disadvantages... to ME. They consider the highest models of all consoles (except the Wii, of course, which currently only has one model).

    Wii Pros:
    -Controller
    -Game library -- fun and interesting
    -Virtual console
    -Slim, sleek design
    -Full backward compatibility with GameCube games

    Wii Cons:
    -480p
    -No multimedia features
    -No online gaming (yet)
    -No ethernet port onboard (out of the box). I don't like using WiFi more than I have to.
    -Miis are really nice (they just need used more)

    Xbox 360 Pros:
    -Halo
    -Xbox Live is well established
    -HD graphics
    -Limited backward compatibility, but things that are backward compatible are upconverted to HD
    -DVD upconversion (over PC output or the upcoming HDMI)

    Xbox 360 Cons:
    -Small hard disk no matter what configuration
    -Noisy fan
    -No full backward compatibility
    -Expensive to get "full potential" (such as the HD-DVD drive)
    -Online gaming costs money

    PS3 Pros:
    -Sony game developers
    -Wireless, rechargable controllers
    -Bluetooth compatibility with a variety of devices (including keyboards/mice as of Firmware 1.6)
    -Near-full backward compatibility (US version), ~75% with the UK version
    -HDMI output
    -Stunning, HD visuals
    -Interfaces with the PSP
    -Ability to install another operating system (like Linux) out of the box for a true multimedia experience
    -Folding@Home is great for research
    -Online gaming is free
    -Some hardware is software upgradable (such as the BluRay drive with Firmware 1.6 -- it can now read burned BluRay discs).
    -Playstation Home (upcoming)
    -Gigabit ethernet AND WiFi onboard
    -Unlimited memory cards for PS2 and PS1 games (as much room as there is HD space)
    -Ability to save game and program data onto USB memory devices
    -Can play back many formats, such as WMA (since firmware 1.6) and MP3
    -BluRay playback out of the box

    PS3 Cons:
    -It's a bit expensive (but a good value if you use all the features)
    -No HD upconversion (though Sony has stated they are adding it for movies (maybe games later, through software emulation -- currently rumored)

    It may look like the PS3 has the most pros... It has the most pros, to me. It's not necessarily better (or worse).

    A little about me, I am a gamer with a desire to use multimedia in any way possible - multimedia on video game consoles is a large advantage to me, and high definition is almost a requirement (the Wii is the only thing I have that isn't HD). To others, the list may be vastly different. I find myself using the PS3 the most, though.

    Some of the ps3 pros are kind of uninteresting to me. i mean (not trying to sound like a fanboy) but i really dont care to much about the "Amazing" technology in my console. Pros and cons should bassically consist of gameplay/games/accesories/online and maybe simplicity. ofcourse, you need solid hardware, but i dont think its that big of a deal as long as the graphics are decent and the games run smoothly.

    I like that comment, i dont care about specs its about how it plays, good grphixs no good gameplay make a bad game!
    It should be all round, not just bout one thing. One could potentialy mess a game up. Say bomberman, man it waz good on N64, now look at it, a total mess man, and B=Act Zero, One word(Garbage)

    thats a really overall great post
    but i have to disagree with 2 things
    Wiis pro: great library, should be moved over to 360
    wiis library...blows...everyone knows it, nothing keeps you interested for to long (except for zelda which is also a gc game) people are waiting for mario/metriod/what not
    360 has all the bit hit games already out

    Hi, i own all 3 consoles, im not a fanboy and i havent read the replys in this thread! cbf!

    ill just give my opinion

    Wii
    Pros:
    - Good gameplay
    - Classic games off the virtual console
    - Motion sensing is fun for SOME games
    - nice n slick console, white and nice design.
    - very quiet, except when it does that reading disc thing, it makes a little click noise as if ur wiis gonna snap itself.

    Cons:
    - Poor internet connection via Wi-fi AND wireless (i have both)
    - Motion sensing controller gets boring after a while for some people
    - Poor graphics (compared to the others)
    - Controllers drain the crap out of batteries, which i find can be quite costly, eventually u'll use enough batteries that u couldve bought a ps3 with.
    - Seems like nintendo is making a lot of games for kids, which is pretty bad cause im not a kid anymore. but i still enjoy some of them
    - Some games are really poorly made for the wiimotionsensing controller, IE some of the mini games on super monkey balls.
    - Everytime a 2nd or 3rd etc player wants to play, u have to go to stupid remote settings and reconnect the controllers! it gets a bit annoyin for me after a while.


    360
    Pros:
    - Massive online support because its been out for a year now
    - Some great titles! e.g. gears of war.
    - Graphics are very good on HDMI games! even comparable to the ps3 atm.
    - Can play music while playing games... but my pcs next to me anyway :S
    - Rumble in controller

    Cons:
    - Heavy and ugly console imo
    - Complicated controller
    - Still quite expensive after a year..
    - i Clocked gears of war in 2 days.
    - Internet connection is unstable and online play LAGS!
    - U have to pay for online gaming subscription.
    - FREAKING TOO LOUD! and alot of 360 owners have the overheating problem.


    PS3
    Pros:
    - Console looks very nice
    - Can play ps2 and ps1 games (depending which version u have)
    - Motion sensing controller and its fairly light in weight
    - Graphics are awesome, regardless whether u have a 1080p tv or not (i dont have one), unless u use a shitbox as a tv.
    - Blu-ray
    - Internet connection is fast and stable
    - Online shop thingo
    - Free online play
    - Very quiet

    Cons:
    - A tad expensive, but as i said ur gonna end up using enough batteries on the wiimote to be able to afford a ps3 anyway.
    - Quite a large console
    - Have lost a few exclusive titles to 360
    - Competing against Bill gates... i wouldn't want to be his competitor thats for sure.


    Thats all from me, our of all 3 consoles i found that i became bored of the 360 the fastest. Wii gets pretty boring for me sometimes too, but its enjoyable when family or friends come over, a party-like console i guess.
    PS3 is something u would probably enjoy most playing by urself, admire the graphics and cinematics, and show them off to ur friends i guess.

    if i were to rate them it would be

    1st: PS3
    2nd: Wii
    3rd: my computer
    4th: going to work
    5th: sitting in my chair scratching myself
    6th: do something boring
    7th: play the xbox 360

    As i said im not a fanboy of any console these are just my opinions!

    the price of the PS3 isnt such a high price if you do a little maths.
    the ps3 with the 60gb hard drive is only about 10-20 more then a 360 would cost if it cam with a 60gb hardrive instead of the 20gb you get
