Which of these consoles have you gotten/do you plan to get? Post it together with the reason you chose it/them.

I'll get the Wii because:
*Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection
*Wii-only games (Twilight Princess, Smash Bros. Brawl, Pokémon BR, Metroid Prime 3, etc.)
*Remote control (It's cool in many games, and it doesn't replace the old-style one in the games that need it)
*Virtual Console

Which one(s) you chose?

I have the Wii already and in the future I plan to get the PS3! Simply because it's got the best graphics out there and is just shiny. However, it's so expensive so I'll just wait til the prices drop.

PS3 IMO is just a waste of money at the minute.
I'm gonna get a Wii and thats about it.

Wii and 360 are gonna lead the market. 360 obviously because of Xbox live and the amazing games.

And Nintendo has its innovation and a loyal fanbase

Sony have been beaten to the punch by Microsoft as the 360 robbed many of its gamers because its cheaper and was out ags before.

Not to mention PS3 doesn't show much promise already and its only just came out.

Was thinking of getting a Wii, but since Gears of War, Lost Planet and The [email protected] is awesome, I've shifted to a 360.

I waited in line at Zellers on November 19th, and I got the 1st one they had. But that wasn't the end: I was forced to get a package deal, with the games Raving Rabbids & Excite Truckz. However, to my surprise, the latter didn't come in on time, so they had to substitute it for TWILIGHT PRINCESS!! I was thrilled. XD

And that's still not the rest of it. I went out to the car, opened the box, and found out that it was empty. Yeah, after paying all that money, EMPTY! They had given me the display box by mistake, but thankfully, it wasn't long before I got the real deal. ^_^

I of course got the Wii for Zelda & Pokemon, my favourite series. Plus, Smash Brothers and Metroid 3 both look awesome, and I plan to pick them up later this year.

I vote for Wii.

The games that are going to be held on the Wii are just awesome.
Zelda, Super Smash, and Fire Emblem to name a few. The price tag is also much more of an added bonus. Plus by the time I actually get one, the price will probably have dropped.

I already own a Wii, so that was obviously my first next-gen choice.

I wouldn't mind getting both the PS3 and XBox 360 in addition, but my first choice at the moment is probably XBox since there are a lot of games for that that really interest me. However, my getting a PS3 kind of banks on whether Blu-Ray or HD-DVD wins out in the end and/or which console Kingdom Hearts III comes out on. XD;

I've always been a Nintendo fanboy. I think the total amount of time that I've played a PS1, PS2, Xbox, or 360 is less than an hour.

I love Nintendo's franchises, and I can't get those anywhere else than Nintendo. There have been very few games that interest me on the other platforms. None at all on the Xbox, actually. XD Although, Xbox Lives looks great. As far as Playstation goes it's just FFVII, Katamari, and Kingdom Hearts. That's all I really want to play that the Playstation offers. Not enough for me to purchase a system.

My SuperNES, N64, GCN, GBC, and GBA all have a minimum of 20 games. My DS and Wii will get there eventually. I don't regret purchasing any of them. Upwards of 20 games, some platforms in the 40s. Buying a Playstation for five games doesn't seem logical to me.

I prefer the Wii, except it has nothing to do with the fact that it's cheaper than the other two consoles. Although the Wii doesn't have the computing power to provide the effective graphics of the PS3 or 360, but it's not like it's moving back to Atari. Besides, it has something more impressive, its motion-sensitive controller. The Wii is the closest thing to to virtual reality we have. However, I'm a more interested by its potential. The interactivity given by the Wii Remote should remind any game maker that changing our identities, not following a story, is what really attracts gamers to those 'shiny boxes'.

I own a Wii

Why?

Its nintendo, I trust nintendo with my games, and I'm a fan of their franchises, plus the innoviation of the controllers is awesome, and I generally love nintendo

I want a 360.

why?

Better online service, despite having to pay for it, I would rather pay then have to enter a code for every game, for every person I want to play online, also most of the games on the 360 appeal to me alot more then the current line up of wii titles. GRAW and GRAW 2 <3

PSWii60 all the way (1250 dollars wasted on just consoles.... or will be wasted). Right now my brother has a 360, we both own the Wii, and by the end of the year (maybe the start of the new year) I'll have a PS3.
I got my reasons for getting all three consoles. The Wii is clear, if I had to pick one it'd be Nintendo's console. The 360 does have more then a few good games on it. And the PS3 does have games like Final Fantasy, Tekken, Kingdom Hearts (maybe...), and some others I want.
So blowing tons and tons of money on gaming is pretty clear for me. XD

I currently own a Wii, and I have always wanted one since it came out.

But me and my brother are willing to pitch in money to get a PS3 in the future. My brother really wanted an Xbox360 at first, but he said he wouldn't mind getting a PS3 as well. So I said we should wait before we get one. But if I hear about Kingdom Hearts III coming out only on the PS3, I'll definitely be getting it xD

I have plans to acquire a Wii and an Xbox 360, but given my current economic situation that won't be happening for quite some time. All things considered, however, I'm leaning more towards the 360; Gears of War, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, and the upcoming Halo 3 just appeal to me more than Super Smash Brothers Brawl and Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

The PlayStation 3 just isn't worth the US$600 investment in my opinion. The only good PS3-exclusive games that come to mind are Resistance: Fall of Man and the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots; all the other good games for the PS3 are already available for the 360 and Wii. The PS3's Blu-Ray feature might be its only redeeming quality, seeing as it's a fraction of the price of a dedicated Blu-Ray player; the cons still outweigh the pros for the most part, however.

Apart from the things I mentioned, the PS3 costs too much, so the Wii would be the best choice in terms of economy.

Don't own any, and only plan on getting a Wii and a PS3 sometime next year. *360=fail* The ONLY reason I'm getting a Wii is for Brawl and BR; I've played TP at a friend's house and I hate every single thing about it. A complete failure of a game.

I've always been a nintendo supporter at heart, but I fell in love with Devil May Cry 1 and have loved each of the entries in the series to date. I don't see why people hate DMC2, I found no problems with it. That series one of the reasons I'm getting a PS3, Devil May Cry 4 F. T. W.

I plan on getting all three next gen systems eventually, but I do plan on getting at least one of them before 2007 is out.

I want to get my hands on the Xbox 360 Elite first because Forza Motorsport 2 is coming out soon and Halo 3 will be out by the end of the year.

I'll go after the PS3 when Gran Theft Auto IV is released. And I better get a copy of that game before Jack Thompson tries anything.

I will get the Wii also, all because Manhunt 2 will be on the Wii also and Jackie will try to get that game banned also.

DMC 4 is gunna be on the 360, so is GTA IV, so I don't see why people are going 'PS3 for DMC 4 and GTA IV' (not just here all over the internet)

and FF(insertnumberhere) is bound to end up multiplatform.

Why I see the PS3 as a failure:

A bad Controller: It lacks rumble, sony thinks its 'last gen' but, so is the D-pad thats really old, from like 4 gens ago, so I can't see why sony are saying it, plus the Tilt sensing has been called 'rubbish' by Sega, and other companies, Sony claimed it gave you 'six degrees of freedom' but come on, compared to the Wii's accelrometers (sp) its nothing really, I mean the GBA had tilt sensing.

Blu-ray: Sony are trying to do what they did with the DVD in the PS2, but they haven't done it well, I mean, HD DVD will have more titles, because most HD DVD players are MUCH cheaper then Blu-Ray players, and the cheapest Blu-ray player at the moment is the PS3, and when the blu-ray players prices start to drop, people who want to watch blu-ray films, won't go 'well the PS3 is cheaper then the others'

Games: The PS3 is losing exclusives, DMC 4 started off as a PS3 exclusive, and then it they say 'We're putting this game on the 360' The launch games for the PS3 we're terrible, okay Resistance wasn't that bad, but had mixed reviews. Motorstorm, has had average reviews, I mean, it doesn't have Splitscreen multiplayer, it only had a couple tracks. Also it doesn't have full backwards compatability, sure the 360 doesn't, but the Wii does, and not just GC games, theres the virtual console (I know its not full, but theres games that aren't even from nintendo consoles on it)

Price: Its just too much for a games console £425 plus if you want it to look its best, your gunna need a HD TV aren't ya, and one of those will set you back pretty far as well.

I used to be a solid Nintendo buff, and in some sense, I still am. I will always be loyal to the Nintendo 64 and the GameBoy Advance, but as for the Wii, I don't think so. It's one of those consoles where it's great...if your friends' own it.

Well, anyway, after I started playing DOA, I immediately shifted to the XBOX, since Itagaki ditched the PS2 for Microsoft's machine. And since Team Ninja are continuing to make DOA for XBOX and the 360, I'll stick with them. Of course, there's also Halo 3, Gears of War, and Lost Planet. And also, after buying Rare from Nintendo, the 360 should be expecting Banjo Kazooie and Conker to make their appearances in their own next gen games as well. So that's something to look forward too.

The PS3 does look good though, but I've never really supported Sony at all, and I have no intentions of owning the console unless two things happen. First, DOA moves back to PlayStation, or, well, someone gives me a PS3 for free. ^^

I'm a neutral bastard.

The Wii is astonishing. Such a unique new concept for a video game console! Best ways to take advantage of it is playing Wario Ware: Smooth Moves, Trauma Center: Second Opinion, or Rayman Raving Rabbids! I can't get enough of the Wii! Just shows how incredible Nintendo can be!

The Xbox 360 doesn't have TOO many great games, judging by how long it's been around, but it's got a good share. Dead Rising, Gears of War, Smackdown Vs RAW '07, some good stuff. And more to come in the future. But it's real highlight is Xbox Live. It's got the greatest online capabilities so far. Oh man, and the Xbox Live Aracde is awesome! You get to play old-school arcade games with others online and the list of games keeps getting better! Another great console.

The PS3. Quite expensive, no doubt about that. But, hey, it happens. Games seem to be getting more expensive over time. Maybe the current price is a bit rash, but the console itself does look lovelyon the screen, which Sony seems to be focused on the most. Does seem silly but I'm not gonna lose hope for Sony. It holds wonderful companies that I've grown to love. Incog Inc. (creators of Twisted Metal 1, 2, Black, and Head-On), Naughty Dog (Crash 1-3, Jak 1-X), and Insomniac Games (Spyro 1-3, Ratchet & Clank 1-4) are great examples. So I'm gonna keep my hopes up for Sony to make a big comeback. I'm sure I'll get a PS3 eventually.

why would you want to buy a XBOX360(they are horrible{and you have to pay to play online}) they have good graphics right now but they will be so far outdated in like a year by the ps3 so just buy a Wii which is a fun gaming console (i have it i know and i love it) and wait for the PS3 to drop in price. the XBOX does have so good xbox exclusive games on it like lost planet and halo (so maybe you should get one after you get a ps3 like in a year just for those games) cause the ps3 is brilliant blu-ray is whooping hddvds but right now in sales and so many more film companies endorse Blu-ray its not even funny. so buy a Wii first they are fun and cheap. then save money for a ps3. then maybe you should get a xbox360 but if you buy a ps3 first you will forget you even wanted a xbox360

Sony aren't planning price cuts of the PS3, so you might be waiting a while.

So what if you have to pay for online, the service is much better then the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, and the Playstation Network, plus your getting a lot more, including demo's for games, Live arcade games, if people dislike paying for the online services, how come so many people use Xbox Live, its the same with WoW, people pay to play it

Blu-ray isn't such a huge succsess, yes its doing well, but Sony have but all there hopes into this format, it hasn't done what the PS2 did to the DVD. Sony are having to sack people to make up for the failure of the PS3, Kutagari has retired, and the sales are really quite low, In Five days Pokemon Diamond and Pearl have sold over one million copies (in the US alone) and in several months the ps3 has almost sold 3 million (Worldwide, you can't really call that a success, and if you put the amount of copies Diamond and pearl have sold in Japan as well, I'm sure you will have alot more then the amount of PS3's sold.

The Wii

I've tried out the PS3 and the games seem too clunky. Plus, there is basically one great game out for the machine right now. The 360 is decent, but with hardware failures, system crashes and overheating, it brings it down. The only problem I have with the Wii when I've played it is it is a bit confusing to control the games.

The Wii is my favorite. I own one, and it was definently worth it. And with the NiGHTS sequel coming out soon (UBER-SQUEE!!) it'll just add another great, can't-miss-out title to the many that the Wii has already cooked up.

Although the XBox 360 and PS3 are plenty good, too. The 360 has XBox Live, and you can't really beat that when it comes to online gaming. And the PS3's graphics are just amazing. Even the Sony bashers would be stupid not to admit to that.

Like many others, I plan to get the PS3 once the prices go down. I'm really only waiting for FINAL FANTASY XIII as of now, and Ninja Gaiden.

I have a 360 and I love it...even though I only have one game for it XD Gear Of War alone makes the 360 worth it. I've played other games that my brother has for it like Prey, Lost Planet, and Call Of Duty 3. They're awesome too. Anyways, I plan on getting a PS3 at the end of the year...unless Metal Gear Solid 4 gets pushed back. Then I'll buy it next year or something. Whenever MGS4 gets released, I'm buying a PS3. Revolution? Dont make me laugh...

TRIFORCE89
May 3rd, 2007, 6:42 PM
Well, MGS5 might not be on the PS3. :p

Kojima is impressed with the Wii (why'd you call it Revolution? Where have you been for the past year? O_o). He has said that MGS4 will be released on the PS3 because they're so far into development. But, he doesn't think the PS3 is profitable. He may port it over to the 360.

Blu-Ray is impressive. However, it would costa fortune for a developer to produce a game that would actually make use of the technology. So much room on the disc, not enough time or money to fill it up. Not worth the expendture. Also, he doesn't feel that the amount of people with a PS3 is strong enough to continue developing major titles (Sqaure feels the same. Final Fantasy is staying simply because it'd embarassing for them to bring it back to Nintendo after leaving them. But Kingdom Hearts is probably going to end up somewhere else.)

I like the upcoming library for the Wii better than the PS3 and 360, and I've always liked Nintendo products better, so the Wii was an obvious choice for me.

I've played the PS3 and it's okay, but it's nothing special. Other than the updated graphics it's not really any different.
There are some impressive games coming out for it, but not impressive enough for me to want to pay 600+ for a system and who knows how much for the games.

The 360...well, I've never been a big Microsoft fan and I'm not into Halo or games like it, so I have absolutely no interest in the 360.

Wii may not be as graphically enhanced as the 360 or PS3, but it's got a better library, better franchises, and a Nintendo VC. Microsoft and PS3 may have a VC too, but they don't offer the exclusive to Nintendo VC games I'm interested in.

I'd definitely say the Wii, just because of how interactive the system is. However, XBox 360 did come quite close for me. Gotta love the Halo series, and not to mention Guitar Hero is now out for the 360, which makes it just that much more amazing.

The Japanese line up adds only Ninja Gaiden to this list. All in all, I can't see PS3 being the big winner as of yet. However, if you compare the lineup between the PS3 and the Wii, you will notice a heck of a lot of "duplicates". Not exactly a good sign for the Wii. MGS 4 is the big one coming up later.

360
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (Gold)
Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia
Shrek the Third
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's end
Surf's Up
WarTech: Senko no Ronde
Forza Motorsport 2
Shadowrun
Call of Juarez
Fantastic 4: Rise of Silver Surfer
Hour of Victory
DiRT
Transformers: The Game
Transformers: The Game (Collector's edition)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
The BIGS
The Darkness
Overlord
Ratatouille
Two Worlds

I have not heard of any of the exclusives in here like at all. The Japanese library adds Trusty Bell to the line up, and potentially Bullet Witch. Otherwise, it seems like it's all the cross platform games, or games that I don't have a good judgement of until release. Halo 3 is the big one later on.

In terms of the game library expansion, it looks like the Wii has the slight advantage at the moment. However, if you take into account for the fact that Nintendo's consumer base has nothing to do with the PS3/360 consumer base, you'll notice that most of the games I've highlighted from there are really for casual gamers (with the exception of RE4). It looks like Capcom is heading in for some cash milking with the Wii, potentially similar to ubisoft's cashing in.

So what happens when you walk into a shop and see a Wii Box, or a wii display do you shout: 'IT DOESN'T EXSIST, I REFUSE TO BELEIVE IT'

I just say something like "'Wii' izz deh suxorzzz! It's Revolution!"

Honestly, the PS3 and Wii aren't really worth it right now. They both have a handful of decent games and that's it. And yes, I have a Wii. There's TP (which is available on the Gamecube), Super Paper Mario, Trauma Center, Wii Sports, and a bunch of minigames and crappy last-gen ports. PS3 has Resistance and Oblivion (which is on the 360). Neither one have a decent online service, although I'd give the edge to the PS3.

The 360 is probably the console most worth buying right now. It has the best online service (even if you have to pay for it) and it's had a year ahead of the other two consoles to get a decent game library together. Still, there's not much there that I want to really try, aside from Oblivion and Viva Pinata.

Once they all get an established game library and the PS3/360 get a price cut, I'll probably wind up owning all three. But right now, the PS3 and 360 neither one really justifies the price for me, at least. The Wii's a bit better, but I'm still a bit disappointed. Of course, that'll change once the big titles like SMG and SSBB come out.

I personally own a Wii and prefer it, it caters to what I WANT from it and not what anyone else or my friends want from it. As amazing as the 360s online capabilities are, I can't see myself playing GoW with my friends as its really not my sorta game.

Generally, I'd say the 360 has the upperhand as someone previously said, its had longer to build up a strong gaming library and stole half of Sony's customers because they took too long and dropped a huge price tag on it which for the younger market isn't going to work as people generally can't afford it unless they work or get a nice amount of money for Xmas or their birthday.

However the PS3 does have blu-ray and SOME good home titles so, it all depends on personal preference at the end of the day.

I already own a 360 and I'm glad I do. Gears of War Online is all a 360 owner needs.

But I do want a Wii only for Brawl and PBR(Pokemon Battle Revolution), but for now the 360 is good enough for me.

Damn straight. Gears Of War is the only game I have for the 360, and I'm in love. I dont even plan on getting another 360 game until around the end of the year. There's this new game called Time Shift and it looks super awesome.

First choice is easily the Wii (like you would expect any other console to win in a poll on a Pokémon-themed forum), for Nintendo's first-party titles, and the many other interesting games guaranteed to come out on it b ecause of the new and innovative control scheme.

Xbox 360 comes in second for its pure power and it is guaranteed to get more support than the PS3 (for the simple fact that it is consistently selling more than the PS3, and devs want to support a system that has more owners...simple business sense.)

PS3...everything Sony could have done wrong...was done. Insane price (justified by power that barely edges out the 360 and a Blu-Ray drive that'll be pretty much worthless in a couple of years.), poor launch, loss of support that just keeps growing, scrapping of rumble features for a cheap imitation of the Wii's motion sensing, and poor marketing.

I only have two games for PS3, because most have been crap, and they cost too much. Then again, 360 games cost the same, and I want one of those too.

I instead consider Sony doesn't have something new to offer. It's the same thing (or almost) while Nintendo has the Wii Remote. This opens more than twice more ways of playing that we had seen before, and it's DS counterpart, the stylus, does so, too. You can't whack-a-mole in PS3 for sure, while you can still play 'normal' things in the Wii.

- Mario Party 8 (German release: I think it was 6.7.2007)
- Super Mario Galaxy (German release: 2008) .:sad:.
- Suoper Smash Bors. Brawl
- And much more.

I've got:
- Nintendo Wii (Bought: February 2007)
- TLOZ - TLP (Zelda) My frist Wii game. (Bought April 2007) I had to play Wii sports more than one month. But I have Metroid Prime 2 and so it wasn't boring as I thoight to wait to get a new game.
- DBZ - BT 2 (Draginball Z) 1 Week after Zelda.

What I want to buy the next months.
-All games which are written at the top of this post.

Why don't you get one? Oh man. Do your parents think it's too expansive? You have my compassion. But try to get your parents to buy one. I weren't allowed to buy one last year. But after talking to them 7 times they said. If you have your money to buy one than do it. I sold my NGC and P XD Metroid Prime 1 and a second controller. Try to get one. IT's really great to play with it.

Most of this is true.

Apart from the PS3 dying alot.
The system may crash, all systems crash occasionally, but the 360 has a much higher 'dying' rate, you've probably heard the ring of fire expression, relating to the three red lights, I think the percent of consoles dying and needing replacing is 5%.

I have a PS3, because I'm not one of those people who followed the original PlayStation and then the PlayStation 2 only to move onto the Xbox because it's all 'new', and stuff.

There are some things that only the PlayStation 3 can handle. Sure it lost a load of it's intial exclusives, but there's all these companies, including Rockstar, who are making some new games for the PS3 only, because they are confident that when the price drops fairly considerably, it will be the gaming system of choice.

First, graphics. Say what you want on this. Go ahead and say the Wii isn't about graphics. That's obvious. See, the Xbox 360 might, for the time being, boast slightly better graphics, but come on, these are the PS3's first generation of games. The 360 had worse graphics when that first came out. Wait until the 2nd or 3rd generation of games for PlayStation 3, they will be a lot better. Even now, however, the graphics are better on a lot of games. Take Oblivion for example. The graphics are a considerable amount better on PS3, even if you do install the patch on the Xbox 360. Games like Need for Speed Carbon, it's launch games, aren't going to have better graphics, are they?

Next, the games. The amount of exclusives is rising again for the PlayStation 3, and like I said, this is the 1st generation of games for it. It's going to be a long time before it has as much games as the Xbox 360 does, but think about how long there was in between each being released. Now the Wii, that doesn't even get the same games, it has special games made for it. For example, instead of making Resident Evil 5 for it, they make a whole different game, one that the Wii can cope with.

Third, features. The PlayStation 3 already has everything you need for brilliant gaming, and it still has more to come for it in the next few months alone, among them Home, a possible Xbox Live contender. And you might say the Wii has all this stuff like news and being able to check the weather and what not, but it's not hard for me to open up the PS3 web browser and go on to Yahoo! News now, is it?

Lastly, stability. The PS3 just doesn't do that thing the Xbox 360 does where it just dies right after the warranty runs out. Sony didn't rush to get their system out before the others, like Microsoft did, and that's why it doesn't break. It's big and heavy, yeah, but once it's set up and by the television, you're not going to worry about how 'heavy it is', are you?

I'm not a fanboy, I don't dislike the Wii and the Xbox 360 (trust me, if I did, I'd have said so), although I agree with all those who believe that the PS3 will be the market leader within the next five years.

I've been playing the X360 for a pretty long time at the local LAN gaming store. I enjoy it a lot (not just for the graphics). I also love the fact that both Guitar Hero III (my most favorite video game series) and Rock Band (definitely going to be awesome) are going to be on it ^^ But I would love to have the Wii. As for the PS3, it's just completely over-rated. Same graphics as the X360, bigger price tag.
