    Can't see how having a PS2 justifies anything, but Wii is a very good console. I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Who doesn't?:lol:

    Anyways, it really depends on what games you're interested in.
    If you like what Wii has to offer, get a Wii.

    They are going to stop making PS2 games at the end of the year.. You'll have to upgrade soon to either the PS3, 360, or Wii. You might just want to go PS3 because if you get the 80 gigabyte version you can play your old PS2 games on it. But, it is pretty expensive. It really depends what you want I guess..

    Yeap my PS2 is still hooked up and still plays dvds...LOL

    If you like throwing money and lots of it into gaming then go HD yet if you liked the PS2 then you like cheap games too and you just know all of your fav developers will move to the Wii just like how they did with the DS. If you are a PS2 gamer and you don't make 4+k a month then your getting a Wii like every one else you might just have a problem finding one. Too me the VC is a blast! Also too the PS3 doesn't really do PS2 games...

    Buy a wii, and keep your ps2 games on the side, buy the ps3 in about 2 years when good games come out for it and perhaps the price might drop for it too!

    This is a Wii forum. So the answer is "yes".

    I don't own a PS2. I haven't owned another game system since my first, which was an original NES.

    Here's how forums work. If you ask a Wii forum whether Wii, Xbox or PS3 would be worth buying, Wii will be the answer. If you ask Xbox forum, Xbox will be the answer, same with PS3.

    It all depends on the types of games you want. If you are expecting to get games like Devil May Cry, Metal Gear Solid, GTA, etc. Chances are its not happening. The types of games Wii has are much different from the other consoles. Also if you are expecting alot of FPS because of the Wii-mote aiming, its also not true so far... There's only a few FPS games so far, I could probably count them on my hands or maybe just one hand.

    You should read about the consoles on wikipedia, then go to websites like gamestop.com, ign.com, gameinformer.com, etc. Then look at the games and screenshots for the type of games you play. Then maybe watch video clips of those games on youtube.com to get an idea of how the gameplay is.

    But, if you are worried about playing your PS2 games, the 40gig PS3 does not have backward compatability and it costs $400, the 80gig does have backward compatability but costs $500. They no longer make the 20gig and 60gig version so thats out of the question.

    There are too many fanboys on this forum who are obviously going to say Wii, but if you can afford it then go for PS3. Sony have dominated the console market for the past 10 years, for many reasons. Stick with Sony. PS3 will piss on everything in the next 12-18 months, just you wait and see.

    same here(i didn't get mine on release day, but same situation). I've played my PS2 maybe a dozen times since i got my Wii though, and that's only for Gran Turismo 4(rarely), GTA3(very rarely), Okami(which is coming to Wii anyway) and some DDR and that's only because Hottest Party SUCKED. Aside from those 4 titles though i can't remember playing ps2

    Im willing to bet Sony will be in last place the whole generation. They dominated the last 2 generations. It doesnt mean they're gonna stay the best. Even in 2008 I still think it will be last place.
