    Have you decided which you are going to buy (if either) yet? Clickable images .





    I haven't put the XBox360 figures - but it just broke 7M.

    If I buy either it will be the Sony Playstation 3, but I'm not sure about whether I will buy it because I will be buying a new computer soon, which will cost quite a bit of money. Tongue Out

    A Wii by farrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    The PS3 is uninpired crap that will undoubtedly get a majority of its games in cheap 'port' fashion. Such as ridge racer 7- that actually looks about 500 zillion times worse than the 360 version.

    One day I'll want the Wii; the next I'll want the 360.  Can't I just have both? Big Smile

    How is the PS3 crap?

    The PS3 has a much greater capability at being a full-fledged computer system with  optional support PPC-based OSes. Sony is even selling the PS3 at a loss of profit, about $150-200 per unit.

    You have no credibility.

    USB keyboard and mouse. I'm not sure, but I think it's possible play with keyboard+mouse also ...

    Edit:
    "You can also play games with the keyboard and mouse, if you prefer." - link

    "Sony has today confirmed that the PS3 will support a keyboard and mouse for gameplay." - link

    Hahahaha, yes- because hardware alone makes a good console, hence why the Wii completely blows.

    Your reasoning was crap. Mine was based on developers preferring Microsofts vision with the 360/PC, and any games developed for the Wii are going to be designed specifically for its unique play style.

    Wii has more than hardware. Mario, Link, Kirby!

    Oooh, but I love the 360/PC thing.  if only Microsoft could get its paws on that Italian plumber, and that kid from Hyrule.  Then I would forgo Wii's neat controller and pound some mushrooms with my 360. (err, when I get a 360)

    The PS3 will become part of my HDTV theater/gaming system. The Wii will end up in the kids playroom.

    I'm going to buy a Wii when it's launched and if it's available in the store. When the price from the Playstation 3 comes down to 200-250 € in about a 18 months then I will buy that too.

    No xbox 360 for me, unless I win it in a contest. Wink

    No. A PS3 can be used as a general purpose computer with a keyboard and mouse (seen the video?), home media center, and game console all in one. In contrast to Xbox live, online gameplay will be free on the PS3.

    I dont have anything against the Wii but it's controllers seem very awkward to me. I'm guessing it would take quite a few lessons in frustration to get a handle on it.

    Neither.  I might get an Xbox 360 at some point.

    Neither. However I'm going to try to get a 360 when Amazon puts 1000 units on sale for $100 bucks on Thursday.

    I saw the PS3 just now at walmart, it looks awesome. But you can't convince me to spend $600 on a freaking gaming platform. I saw the wii, it looks awesome...but forget it, I'm not buying that either. It's too confined to gaming.

    Now, the x360? I would definitely buy that thing. It's a DVD Player, an Internet Tool, a Gaming Console, a Computer, and eventually (when XNA comes along) it will become a testing platform for distributable self-made applications...that is anything but confined. Not to mention its graphics kick booty.

    Right now all I have is a laptop and a PS2. I'm content. I only play one game on PS2, Guitar Hero.
