Default OT: Vote your Game Console Preference

Since they've all been released, which one would you: a) spend your hard earned after tax dollars on OR b) hope that you get for Christmas... (yeah Riiiiiight.)

Curious to see the results and why.

I'm a Bungie fan and am considering the 360 next year for obvious reasons, but the Mrs. would prefer the Wii; Dr. Mario, go figure...

I have only played the XBOX 360 (meh), and I'm not impressed with the games for Wii yet...my vote goes for PS3.

I've played all of them, and will own them all, and you PS3 guys are in for a big let down. It wishes it could work as well as the 360. For now anyway.

I have no vested interest in this and only want the best gaming experience possible, no matter who offers it.

The only benefit it has (for a HUGE premium) is Blu-Ray, and the verdict is still out on that. The motion senser controller is neat, but you don't get rumble. It's basically the same controller since the PSone! Online is weak, store is weak - they have a lot of work to do.

I'm curious to know why everyone votes for the PS3 when I'm sure most of you haven't played it yet.

Though I reckon the SO will enjoy the Wii as well. It's "cheap" enough that we can pick up a Wii anytime down the road along with the PS3.

Hopefully the rumours about GTHD being sold a la carte aren't true. Imagine having having to pay for each track and each car separately?

Fair enough on the backward compatibility, although we'll see how much you want to play muddy ps2 games after you've made the next step up. I know my PS1 games got pretty dusty after I got my PS2.

Have you seen the 360 Racing wheel? Can't wait for Forza.

Wii Sports Bowling is incredibly addictive. Super fun. And you can box the SO after arguements.

My vote is for the 360, streaming pics and videos from my computer HD is a nice feature. Plus I don't think Sony will be able to match Live for online gaming.

Because they're Sony fanboys

GTR2 is coming out for the 360, unless they dumb it down too much it should be pretty good. You should stop by and check out Gears Of War sometime.

my vote is for Wii.

the other consoles are just doing the same old things but with better graphics.
Wii has a completely new and awesome way of playing games, you can use the controller as a sword and a gun in the same game pretty much at the same time! How awesome is that!
Wii is cheaper, cooler to play, already has a good game lineup, is backward compatible and will have ancient games to boot.

Only reason i'd want a 360 is for forza 2, i've never enjoyed the ****ty graphics of playstation and its controller design, but thats just me, ive always hated playstation.

Wii ftw
360 ft2ndw

ps3 FTL

N64 bitches!


seriously, I will probably get a Wii before any of the others. It seems you can get a bit of exercise by using it, and that it my issue with gaming is you sit there for so long. I'd rather play sports/work out with my free time. My PS2 has a healthly layer of dust on it!

i voted Wii... its just too much fun..

only reason i wnat a PS3 is for the new grand turismo.. and maybe nhl 07 and fightnight

edit: also, having played ps3.. i wasnt impressed.. graphics are as good as xobx.. altho we didnt have the HD cables.. so that could be the reason... and the launch games all suck.. i was much more hyped up for ps3.. but after playing it.. im quite dissapointed... and with a similar price range.. you could buy the xbox and Wii..

1st: Wii
2nd: XBOX 360
3rd: PS3

PS3 has cheap Blu-ray chip, which is not as good as Blu-ray player.
XBOX 360 has a lot of racing game and good price
Wii, cheap + interactive gameplay = the future of game console

Xbox360 for me!.. Seems like a good system for me! I'm happy with it. HD Gaming is awsome! Gears of War, PGR3, Forza 2, NHL 07.

I Bought a 360 about a month ago. I enjoy it, no complaints. Some games are over rated (dead Rising) but overall i enjoy having it. Most likely I will get a ps3 fallish of next year, I never buy into release date buying, I am not an Idiot.

If you haven't already got it, try Gears of War. It's the first game I've played that actually lived up to it's hype.

Hi HO. I prefer my wife's good 'ol Xbox. It's running a nice open-source piece of software called XBMC - Xbox Media Centre.

Unfortunately, Microsloth isn't going to be supporting the original Xbox anymore - they're not making any more new console units and won't be making any more games. Too bad. I really like XBMC. Nobody's hack'd the 360 so that it can run XBMC, as I am addidcted to being able to download my divx tv shows and other media that XBMC can play.

Yah, yah, I know the 360 can do all that streaming stuff, but you need to have it network'd with another PC running Windoze XP (or Media Centre). For me? I've got the Xbox connected to a network drive - no need to have the PC turned on to watch my videos!

LaterZ!
Darren!!
