i need to upadte my collection of videogames and it will happen through buyin' one of these.
i think i like the Wii more, because i love Mario, Sonic and games with funny and kind of childish atmosphere.
but the others are way better in terms of graphics and technology.

what would be you choice. (???)

Wii,

Just a revolution in itself. I mean the other consoles are good but Wii by far!

I'd go for the 360. Don't let the "red ring of death" put you off it mind. It doesn't happen to every xbox.

Go for a wii for pure fun..it's awesome but if u can summon enough cash get a Xbox360 there pretty cheap in UK atm and theres plenty of goood exclusive titles as well as the multi format ones too!

I have a ps3 and you gotta love the features but Wiis are a lot of fun. It's like being drunk (at least if you're an excitable person) playing tennis and boxing. It's absolutely exhausting (because I get quite heavily involved) and I've only played Wii sports. I haven't played any other games.

I love Singstar on PS2 and PS3. Sooo much fun when you're drinking with friends (especially the pong/paddle game on Singstar 80s - absolute gold!!!) My friends and I almost asphyxiate every time we paddle/pong - too much laughter, not enough oxygen and it doesn't get old.

Wii! It's the only system that all your friends can play and be good at. My girl friends can whup my ass at Wii Boxing or Mario Party. I think if I bought a PS3 or 360 I would be very lonely playing videogames and wouldn't even play them at all

I should also mention if online play would be a priority for you then Xbox360 live >>>>>>> PS3. Yes PS3 has free online play but 360 has a superior service and is very cheap anyway.

PS3


Wii

























Xbox 360

The 360 is a disgusting Microsoft pile of shite that blows up and stops working if you so much as look at it funny. The PS3 and Wii are great consoles.

i have a wii, but i'm frustated with the lack of serious sport titles, the sport games they make for the wii, they assume they have to dumb the game down considerably, i know that should be more expected with wii but not with every bloody game. However, it's been good fun, was addicted to wii sports for ages when i got it. looking forward to getting mario kart today hopefully.

I'll get a PS3 once the price drops down a bit more, the fact it has GT5 is enough for me choosing it over an XBox.

If you like tennis games then Xbox is the obvious choice as VT3 on ps3 has no online play (why is that? :o ) and Smash Court Tennis 3 which is out in June will not be released on ps3. I'm sounding like a microsoft fanboy :lol: but xbox is getting little recognition in here

I hear they're making a completely independant Topspin 3 game for the Wii... which sounds like it could be awesome with the remote.

I love the Wii... it doesn't have the most hardcore titles, but it completely dominates for multiplayer hilarity.

The Wii because it is different. Tennis on Wii sports is the best :hearts: But there is hardly any good games out :o I've been waiting for Super Smash Bros Brawl to come out for ages and there still isn't a date set in Australia :sobbing:

It has to be the Wii! Nintendo tried to actually evolve the home console by making something different that really gets you involved. Sony and Microsoft just improve the speed and graphics with each subsequent console and offer nothing new in terms of gameplay.

Wii- The system is pretty fun. Most of the games are cheap but they suck. There are certain games that work for the Wii and other's that are terrible. I suggest buying the more expensive ones like Super Smash Brawl, Super Paper Mario, Mario Galaxy, and Rachet & Clank. Besides those everything else is alright. I've had it for a while now and my friends love to play it occasionally.

PS3- I have a ps3 and the only redeemable quality about the PS3 is that you get a quality blue-ray player. The better games are expensive and the system lacks in titles. Nobody is available for online play most of the time. However the graphics are far superior than X360 or Wii, and it's backwards compatible.


Xbox 360- I sold my Xbox 360 but I'm going to buy another one in the future. They have alot of titles and Xbox Live is always jumping on just about every game.

:wavey: nope, you can either use the Wii remote, Wii remote and nunchuck, the Wii wheel or the classic controller. the choice is yours! :D personally, i've been kicking old school SNES syle with the classic controller :cool: the wheel is great, much more responsive than i thought it would be but your arms really hurt after a couple of hours :lol: a lot of retailers are giving the wheel away free with the game, thats how i ended up with one :)

on another note, i took delivery of the Wii Fit board on Friday :worship: yet another reason why the Wii is a better choice than any other console out there :D

i must admit, i baulked at the price too but having taken delivery of it, it's actually quite a substantial piece of kit and i think it will be worth the invested dosh if there are some good titles to go along with it. the potential is vast :)

When the 360 came out it didn't have many games either, it takes a while to establish a library of games for a new system. That's just the way it goes...but the system itself is far superior.

Bowser had the best top speed in the game. :lol:

He had awful acceleration which is why most people confuse him with being slow.

I always used Toad or Koopa Troopa. On the Wii, I use Bowser Jr. or Koopa Troopa.

The 60GB had backwards compatibility with PS2 games, but this was removed from the 40GB version.

Also, the 60GB had card readers on the front and 4 USB ports instead of 2.

For me, I love my xbox360. I've had it for over 2 years and no problems at all with it. Prior to that, I had always had Nintendo products... but I always found myself wanting to play games on other systems more, so I finally decided to try another system instead. Although I have played the Wii and it's great fun, I haven't bought one because I wouldn't have the time to play it and the XBOX360 together.
