War of The Consoles
 
At a recent check, sales of Nintendo's Wii jumped by 600k units, totaling about 2.2M units sold altogether, on par with Microsoft's Xbox 360. This was considered a remarkable feat, as the Wii came in 1 and a half years after the launch of the 360.

Open for discussion. Views & opinions please.

I want Blu-ray PS3 :c

Wii may be winning for now, but I think the PS3 will overtake the market soon.

But then again, Vesperia is coming out for the X360... no matter, FF13 is more than likely to make PS3 sales jump~

Not really. The Force Unleashed for Wii is going to make a big impact. Your Wii remote is your lightsaber, how cool can that be?

well it's no surprise that wii are selling especially since people who aren't into games generally are buying em too AND it's cheaper.

i vote 360 though.

PS3> all other consoles

boomsticky 06-19-2008 08:25 AM

I would say the Wii due to the innovation and "calm gaming" lifestyle it brings.

PS3 will probably pick up the pace since Blu-Ray won the Blu Ray vs. HDDVD War.

However, I'm still keen on my PC...I like to manually upgrade?? lol

The Wii will do fine for a long while. Like past Nintendo creations, it has a lot of casual gaming games. I personally like it more than a XBOX 360 or PS3. And plus, I believe the cost for a Wii has dropped some. Has the PS3 dropped any? I don't really think so. I think it's still at 500$.
I doubt parents will shell out 550$+ just so their kid can play one game. Unless they're spoiled rotten.

I vote Wii do fine because of as said the larger and more casual demographic it targets (and thats the only "new" generation console system I own). Plus, the Wii system and games like Mario Kart Wii that comes with the wheel are just plain hard to find.

Out of the other two, I see Xbox 360 doing alright , out of the fact that is the only one of the other systems that I've played, none of my friends have a PS3 so all I can tell about it comes from news article and others opinions. Even thru as said, the winning of the Blue-ray in the next gen. DVD war makes might be bring up PS3's appeal (some Blue-ray DVD players cost almost as much as the PS3 itself).

Momijii- there is a $400, 40 gig PS3 that has been out for a while, but its also not PS2 backwards comparable, only 2 USB ports, etc.

I prefer my Xbox 360 for now but once FF13 comes out I'll buy myself a PS3 and MGS4 as well. No other games appeal to me right now on the PS3. Everything on it is pretty weak right now.

Khmer2k1d5 06-19-2008 12:08 PM

Honestly, where can someone find a wii? They may have shipped more out, but I still can't ffind any. PS3 are everywhere, I know plenty of people that own them too. It may just be for a few games, but more will come @_@:;

Leenalia 06-19-2008 12:22 PM

PS3 ftw
Wii games are boring in my opinion...the only ones that is not is Mario Kart and Fire Emblem.

Kusuriuri 06-19-2008 12:35 PM

@khmer, iknorite. I can go to just about any store in my area and easily find a PS3 and/or Xbox360. Wii? LOLOLOLOL.


@Leenalia, as with anything, its all a matter of personal opinion. Its quite the opposite for me, theres like.. 1 game on the 360 Im interested in, a couple on PS3? So it doesnt make those consoles worth my money .__.; Lmao.

Theosis 06-19-2008 12:47 PM

Honestly I don't really like any consoles. Only reason I have a PS3 and Xbox 360 is because of Halo 3 and Final fantasy games. Other than that, consoles are teh lose.

Khmer2k1d5 06-19-2008 12:49 PM

Lol, you don't like MGS 4 Nick? How about Resistance, COD, and SOCOM?!?!

Henreh 06-19-2008 12:52 PM

*was playing Tekken 6* Sony always win due to wider game selections and FF lulz.


did I mention the PS3 is the shiniest out of them all 8D?

MGS 4 is alright, but was never into the MGS series. Never tried Resistance, never liked SOCOM and CoD as in Call of Duty? I play those for 360 and PC.

Khmer2k1d5 06-19-2008 12:57 PM

Lol, what games are you interested in? I assume RPGs, but that's an assumption @_@:;

Yeah, mainly RPGs and online FPS games. But I hate most FPS games on consoles, just doesn't feel the same without a mouse/keyboard.
