Default XBOX 360 vs Wii!?!?!?

Well, as you all know the holidays are coming up and Im starting to get back into gaming. Looking for good honest answers/opinions, not just "xbox because nintendo sucks". I am a huge sony fan but the ps3 is definately out of my budget at $700+. Not really into computer gaming.

Thanks!!

Well the wii is more interactive and can play a wider range of games. The Xbox 360 has a lot better graphics and a higher price tag. So it really depends on how serious you are going to get. I woud personaly get the Xbox 360 since it has a hard drive and its going to have Halo 3 and the great graphics.

Honestly, I really wouldn't promote Xbox, but in this case, I would have to say the 360 just because the PS3 isn't up there. Where'd you get the price estimate of $700+? Regardless of the price, in this pole, I'd have to say the 360 just because IMO Nintendo is maybe geared towards kids more. Plus, there are very popular games on Xbox like Halo, and many people participate on Xbox Live if you're into playing over the Internet. I just vote 360.

Yes, when I was into gaming I enjoyed the on-line mode the most. Nintendo used to be aimed more towards kids, but they said things were going to be different with the Wii. From what I have heard, the budget PS3 will be $600, and the nice one will be $700. The main thing is that the Grand Theft Auto series, as well as a few others probably wont be coming out on Wii, so XBOX is already looking better...

Nintendo Wii will still have Nintendo graphics and it will have a lot of games for kids. Xbox360 on the other hand is great I have played my friend's a lot and it is just amazing. But if you are into the older Nintendo games then Wii would be good for you. But if your looking for the newer style games and HALO3! Get 360

What's the difference between the "cheap package" of the PS3 and the "nice one"?

^^Simply the amount of memory I'm pretty sure.

As for the topic.. You can't go wrong with either! As jeremy says, "I like any console that allows me to access noobs so I can pwn them!"

I was looking up specs on the ps3 a few weeks ago and if i remember correctly it went like this: For $500 you got a 20gig hdd and for $600 you got a 60gig hdd and wireless internet capabilities. That's if my memory serves me right. Also, they said that the ps3 will be 2 times more powerful than the xbox 360, and 34 times more powerfule than the ps2, that sound pretty awesome to me. It looks like the ps3 will be the better system in the long run, but I would go with the xbox 360 for now. I'm still running my ps2 and plan on buying a ps3 when they are reasonable priced and still popular in about 2 years.

The $500 PS3 has 20GB of memory and the $600 PS3 has 60GB of memory. Also the $600 one has memory card slots and wireless internet capability.

OH YEAH, PS3 is/will be BY FAR better then the Xbox 360. PS3 will have High Definition and Blu-Ray technology. They will come out with a High Definition adapter for the Xbox 360 around Chrismas time, which is what Best Buy told me, but they said it'll be around $100 if I remember right, maybe even $200(It was about a month ago since they told me this). So the PS3 is more worth it then the Xbox 360, even considering the high price tag because it comes with more features already built in.

Yea. The ps3 will have better graphics, but Ive never been a huge graphic junkie. I just like fun games. The reason why Im hesitant against the PS3 versus the 360 is that the 360 already has games out, and the price is coming down. If Zipper is launching Socom 4 however I will HAVE to get a PS3. I have been playing since socom 1 and its my favorite game series. I played Halo only once a few months ago, and I wasn't that interested, but maybe it will grow on me. Im not so sure about the Wii because grand theft auto is my favorite series, and GTA 4 will be coming out. If it doesnt come out on the Wii, then I certainly dont want it.

Me personally the Wii isnt even comparable to the 360 and the PS3. Totaly geared for a different group/ type of people and probably wont compare graphically. If your very anxious to get a system right now go for the 360. But if you could wait a while, the PS3 is definatly the way to go. It will blow the 360 out of the water [8D]

It would kinda stink for you to buy the 360 then see the PS3's capabilities then feel bad you didnt buy the PS3 []

Oh and another thing is, they already are lining up games for the launch of the PS3. So dont worry about there being a shortage of games when it comes out

The only thing is the extra cost of the PS3 could be a fex extra games for the 360. Im looking at Splinter Cell double agent, NBA 2K7, and Saints Row. The only thing is me coming from a line of sony systems always thought the XBOX controller was silly and complicated compared to sony's clean and simple controller. I guess I can learn but I always thought it was strange how they went from "A" and "B" to "X" and "Y".

I would normally totally agree with you, but considering that the PS3 will be coming with Blu-ray I can't. Samsung has a blu-ray player out right now(I saw it in the Best Buy flier a few weeks ago) and it was over $800. So if you think about it, PS3 will be saving you a chit load of money in the long run because it seems like DVD players will faid out and BLU-RAy will be phased in over the next few years. I've only used the DVD feature on my PS2 maybe 5 times in the 4 years of owning it, but its a nice feature to have.

FCP do you have a 360?

As for the whole blu-ray thing, I have a feeling it can't be as quality as a stand alone player, but I have been wrong before... The DVD player on the 360 is fine for me, I dont have a HD TV (Yet ).

Looks like the 360 will be the best choice.
I think i will try and go with the Premium/NBA 2k7 package and pick up a few other games.

this is truly a battle between the bogus systems of today. I'd take anything over nintendo, because nintendo appeals to the wii little people (kids).

360 ftw in this race, better graphics for sure.

PS3 ftw in the end. I love how Xbox and nintendo people bash it... "oh its so much slower than xbox 360"... Oh yeah, big deal. Developers are complaining about not having the technology to bring out the best in their games for the console.
