PS3 vs xbox 360 vs Wii

    My Wii has just arrived. 😃

    If I’m not around for a while it’s probably because I have done myself some sort of injury.

  • PlayStation 3:
    great graphics; perfect gameplay (if they don’t change the controller)
    XBox 360:
    great graphics; horrible gameplay (unless they change the controller)
    Nintendo Wii:
    good graphics; perfect gameplay
    I don’t care about the extra features they add to any game console, when I get a cell phone I’m interested in talking, not taking pictures.
    In the end Nintendo Wii is the most inovative console but I always loved Playstation’s standards, Xbox 360 just supports great graphics and has a horrible controller (I mean look at the size of that thing), the XBox 360 is out of the question for me.
    Now the decision (Nintendo Wii - PS3) depends on the gameplay cause the graphics are already good enough. I’ll just buy both when they’re cheaper. 🙂 (and plus, Metal Gear Solid 4 will be available only on the PS3! MGS is my favorite game! Can’t wait till it comes out!).

    Why wait when you can have the best?, 28 Nov 2006

    Oki used to love Playstation but have been converted to Xbox,i mean why wait for somthing to come out when you already have a machine that is just as good in the 360.
    Anyone that has not seen gears of war for the 360 should take a look as the gameplay and grapics are just as good if not better than the Playstion 3.My cousin lives in japan and i have visited him very recently and i have to say the playstation 3 is sooooooooooooo overhyped,im not saying that it isnt good but you have a console thats just as good over here for gameplay and graphics.
    yes its blueray and yes its high def for dvds but other than that all you have is a glorified 360.the other thing is going to be the price,i mean what the hell!!! nearly 500 pounds brand new and 70 pounds plus for a game,if you are willing to pay that take my advice and buy a pc for about the same money.
    at the end of the day its a GAMES console trying to be a pc and failing in all departments

    xbox actually costs more if you add stuff already in the PS3, and you still dont get the same package :-).

    I do agree that if someone has xbox, no reason for them to get PS3 right away, but for someone that is buying an new system PS3 is better choice.

    you simply get more.

    @Sir:

    David,

    Very true comment!!

    Game consoles, phones, PDA, are all trying to become self dependant computers that allow you to use the net, play music, type notes etc…

    What happend to the good old days where a game console was just that! Designed, Developed and Made to play quality games at an affordable price! nothing more nothing less…

    The main thing i do like about the Xbox is Xbox Live! for when your bored of playing against the computer and fancy taking on real people from around the world!

    Microsoft make a loss on there console because they know there going to make a profit in games and online!

    Maybe Playstation should open there eyes and put the price down or they could be looking at a massive loss in sales.

    PS3 has online service, and it is free :-).
    It is not as good as xbox’s, yet, but it is… free.

    And also, due to more power in PS3, PS3 online games have more players in them - like GOW is limited to only 8 players while Resistance has 40 players multiplayer games.

    For me, Sony did the right thing in PS3 by getting rid of extra charges, unlike MS… You can plugin your old keyboard/mouse, your external hard drive, your usb stick, your SD card, you can change its hard drive to generic notebook drive, you can install linux and be supported by sony.

    None of which you can do with Xbox where you have to pay everything extra, just because it is xbox.

    I will if I ever get a shot at it.

    My wife who usually despises gaming (the last game she played was a version of Pacman on my Commodore Vic 20), has never been off it.

    Ten Pin bowling and Boxing :eek: have kept her going all weekend.

    There’s too many internet rumours of what it is/isn’t capable of doing. Wait until E3 then we should know just how good it is.

    My wife has promised me one anyway so I’m in. 😃



  • mate i’ve had my hands on it and the version i played with had a hard drive 1ghz processor and even the option for a printer.they plan to make a wordprocessor on it and a full blown office suite.

    I hear it has a Teasmaid too. 😉

    That’s just being extravagant. 😃



  • No - I need one for tea and an extra one to install user modification <coffee>.
    Different requirements for Gaming & Films/DVD.</coffee>


  • Alpha Testers

    LOL. Never thought of that. 😃



  • Ok, whats the point in buying a “Game Console” when it is starting to look, feel and act like a Tablet?

    i mean word?? come on! put the research and development team on improving it’s user interface, make it faster to load, save and run high spec games.

    Not frack about making it do presentations…

    if i want a game console PS3 Beats Xbox and Nintendo.

    The sony PS3 has the best graphics card with higher resolution compared to XBOX.

    The only thing the Xbox has in its favour is a unique Operating system and kinnet which is certainly the flagship of controller free gaming.

    Nintendo wont go near either party for high spec gaming they will keep it for excersise and brain teasers.

    What i do know… is that microsoft is in discussions with Panasonic, Sony and Samsung about intergrating the Kinnectic camera system and skype onto their televisions.

    This means remote control free interface, voice activation and the ability to control your tv, browse channels all with your hands or voice.

    Now thats what i want for TV.

    For gaming… i want pure power and graphics.

    You do realise the “tablet” is the controller and not the console? :rolleyes:

    @Sir:

    Strange choice. What I want from games is gameplay and that is what Nintendo are best at. 😉

    As for power and graphics, if the rumours are true then the WiiU is more powerful than any other system out there.

    But I’ve no knowledge of it’s final specs hence my comment about rumours.



  • Yes i know about the wii u tablet being a controller and the other features it has. :O) i had a demonstration of it at a tech show.

    And… its a clever piece of kit without a doubt.

    Gameplay is obvisoly very important! but i take that as standard… i wouldnt buy a game if it didnt offer me enjobable gameplay! buts the graphics and sound add to that gameplay.

    Nintendo games look to old fashioned and arcady… although some of the shooting games are fun to play.

    Of course the wii u will be more powerfull its newer than both xbox and ps3.

    Wait until Sony and Microsoft get wind of the real specs and final public model. Then they up theirs and once again dominate the market.

    As is alway’s the case with this industry.
