XBOX 360 or Wii?

Which should I buy and why??

Also, for XBOX 360, is the core version fine or do I need Elite/Pro? What's the difference?

Quite a few differences, with one thing in common....they are all shitty and unreliable and have a 40% failure rate.

Go for the Wii, or even better, the PS3.

Wii, I love it. Very addicting though.

Really?? hmmm...

The only thing that doesn't convince me about the Wii is the annoying control pad. Sure it may be fun for games like golf and tennis, but it seems like it would get on my nerves with other types of games.

Alot of games don't force you to use it though...for Mario Kart Wii I just use the Gamecube controller Smash Bros Brawl is the same, you can use whatever you want.

The Elite version means you can change the outfit of your X-Box and I think it has a bigger memory.

To save games download demos music movies etc...

I would get a xbox 360. Wii seems kid friendly unless you like mario kart and mario party get a xbox 360

I like some of the wii games like super smash bros and mario kart but xbox 360 has more games and more variety

I'd buy both but get a xbox 360 first

I voted Wii as well.

And like he said above, you can use the Gamecube controllers for certain games. I just used the Wii remote because I wanted to get used to the controls.

Re: XBOX 360 or Wii?

Wii is funnier, but most of their games are kinda basics and are getting quite boring ...like who wants to play 5 differents games of Bowling

But I still voted for the Wii

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki
