After I get my laptop from rewards1, I'm planning on getting a gaming station, but which one? all I have is a DS and a PS2, I heard PSPs are great, and also xbox 360, and wii isn't bad either!
so which one do you suggest I get? (based on gaming fun, game prices, and console price!)

Thanks for helping!

Meh, 360 is obviously going to win. Too many fanboys here, PS3 is best bang for your buck.

PSP isn't too great, had mine for 3 years and I only watch movies on it.

Wii get boring after awhile, pretty good for house parties. I only play tennis and baseball on it once in awhile with friends.

360 has some decent games, nothing special though really. You will probably have to deal with red ring of death. You get a mic, and the arcade games are pretty fun to play with online.

PS3 comes with everything a 360 comes with and more. Free online, great games coming out this year and next. Comes stock with a blu-ray player. Seeing as it is the top dog as of now, you might want this if you don't already have a player.



After Modern Warfare 2, the 360 isn't going to get any good games. At least none are lined up at the moment, and the ps3 is getting mw2 anyway.

Also if you buy an older model PS3 you will get backwards compatiblity so you can play all your old PS2 games.



uh lets see... xbox 360 ftw becouse ps3 is expensive doesnt have great games unlike 360 (Fable 2, Left 4 dead(isn't even exclusive)) live isnt expensive and pi havent recieved RRoD yet becouse i actually take care of mine and because its BS

I should probably justify my opinion. Btw, I own both a Xbox 360 and PS3 but not a Wii.

The 360 has everything you'll need at an affordable price. From $200 to $400 just pick the bundle you want. Also remember some consoles like the $400 Elite come with great games like Halo 3 and Fable 2.

And for the people who say the Xbox 360 has no good games, you should look harder.
Here's a little list of the Xbox 360 and it's features.

The Xbox 360 is almost always the lead platform for developing games, and even when it's not, the 360 version still comes out better. (Ghostbuster: The Video Game, lol)
The Xbox 360 also gets exclusive video game content. Look at GTA IV and Fallout 3. Also look at Modern Warfare 2, the 360 gets the map pack first.
The Xbox 360 also has a lot of exclusives coming up, like Alan Wake, Halo 3 O.D.S.T., Forza Motorsport 3, Left 4 Dead 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Mass Effect 2 and Crackdown 2.
Xbox 360 is also home to the greatest online experience! I don't need to explain this.


Oh and you might hear some fanboys say the games above aren't exclusives but the fact is, a majority of console gamers don't have a gaming computer. So for the people who say "I'll just play it on my PC", they most likely won't. Some will, some won't. (and this is a console post not a pc)

I would also recommend a PS3 but I don't really play mine cause I have noting to play right now except Killzone 2 and Resistance 2. It's good for Blu-Ray though, that's a huge plus, and the games don't need multiple discs. But that's not a major problem on 360 though, most multiple disc games are RPGs.

And I can't tell you much on the Wii, sorry :crap

Oh, and the PSP is actually looking good with the new model and the games coming up like LittleBigPlanet, Gran Turismo, Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars, Monster Hunter, and the new Metal Gear Game. It's looking good to me :tongue3:

Xbox 360, bigger and better game library, better graphics (comparison tests on highest performance situations, even though Sony overstocked the PS3 hardware wise), and don't forget Xbox Live which destroys the online experience of all other consoles.

Being a video game developer (I develop for both, Playstation 3 and XBOX 360) people ask me almost daily which platform I think is better. These are my personal feelings, in no way does this reflect my employer.

Short answer: XBOX 360.

Long answer: Price, performance, visual quality, game selection and online support. I think the XBOX 360 wins in everyone of these categories.

Performance: On paper, the PS3 is more powerful. In reality, it's quite inferior to the 360. Without getting into too many details, the three general-purpose CPU's the xbox360 has are currently FAR easier to take advantage of than the SPU's on the PS3. I suspect a few years down the road some high budget, first party PS3 exclusive titles will come out that really take advantage of the SPU's and do things the XBOX 360 can't, but I don't think the console is worth buying based on this speculation (for some it will be though, we'll have to wait and see how these games turn out).

Graphics: The XBOX 360 is a clear winner. The GPU is more powerful. It has more powerful fillrate, and far more pixel and vertex processing horsepower. Part of the reason is their choice of memory, and architecture of pixel and vertex procesing. I can't get into details but the same vertex shader will run much slower on the PS3 than the XBOX 360. The 360 also has a clever new way rendering high definition anti aliased back buffers. To accomplish the same effect on PS3 is prohibitively expensive. For this reason I think many games will have no choice but to run in non-HD resolutions on the PS3 version, use a lower quality anti aliasing technique, or do back buffer upscaling. The end result in all cases is going to be noticeably worse image quality.

You can't go wrong with the Xbox 360..unless u don't like there old fashioned game controllers. Of course the Wii has motion sensing but i hear Xbox 360 is going to be motion sensing also, of course the wii has the mii's, oh wait, but the xbox 360 has characters just like the mii's. Well whats going on here? Xbox 360 is trying to have the best console and provide everything u want in a system. The wii and PS3 are just looking at gaming needs cause they have lack of that.

Xbox 360 is probably ur best bet ( u got a 3 year warrenty so no worries mate!)

Don't get me wrong, the wii is a good system but i recommend playing the wii with a couple buds just to hang out and have some fun like playing fun multiplayer(4 player) games such as SSBB, Mario Party 8, Mario Strikers, Mario Kart and so forth.
If u wnat to play alone with your wii(sounds dirty) then there is RE4, Splinter cell(also awsome co-op), Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, COD(not as good as other Systems) and THE CONDUIT!!(An amazing game, took me 7 hours or so to beat, but now i'm playing online, the online is just as good or maybe even better than HALO 3!!(and yes, i have played halo 3 online, the only difference is that Halo 3 can have 4 player co-op online)
Don't get me wrong(again..), the Xbox 360 has fun multiplayer(4 player) and fun Co-op action(2-4 players). But the wii just seems to be more fun and memorable, kinda like ur kids again or something. The xbox 360 is mostly fun only for shooter games(which i find), The wii has diversity. The PS3 also has diversity.
The PS3..When i first saw it, i hated it completely but now that i started playing it, it's awsome! maybe even better than the Xbox 360(Doesn't breakdown also), it has Little big Planet, Resistance(i think, like 40 player online!!), Infamous, MGS, Killzone(wicked!) and more. It's a wicked system with more benifits such as not paying to play online, blu-ray player(don't need a DVD player), better graphics(in my opinion) and more.
The Xbox 360. i thought it was too overrated! rebel against the machine! but the xbox 360 has games such as RE5(PS3 also has it), Fallout 3, BioShock(i think), COD(PS3 to), Halo of course and other great games.

Price is a different issue:
PS3-System,controller =400$
Games =60$ or so
3 controllers=96$-150$(depends what type)
Total=556$-610(also depends on how many games, controllers, etc!)
Xbox 360
System,Controller-200$-400$
Games-60$-70$
3 Controllers-150$
Total=410$(with no memory)-610(with memory, same price as PS3??)
Wii
System, Controller,Wii sports,etc-250$
games-50$ or lower
3 controllers/nunchuks-150$
Total=450$
( all prices are in U.S.)
The Xbox 360 sucks without memory, u can save some stuff but not maps on FPS shooters and stuff. I have seen Xbox 360 games at like 60 bucks and higher, same with PS3, the highest i have seen for the wii is like 54 bucks! The wii has cheap games man, not as good as graphics but super fun to play with freinds. The others have better graphics and can last u longer for playing alone.

Choose watever intrests u the most.
Xbox 360- Sometimes fun 4 player play, Amazing online(at a price(I think 90 bucks a year?)
PS3- Amazing system, don't need a DVD player, fun all around(wont break down)
Wii- Forgotten system(cause of bad graphics), wicked fun with a bunch of guys, Fun single player(but not to many of those), the conduit is the main game for it. Free online.

It's simple: Xbox 360.

The greatest thing the PS3 has to offer is free online gaming, but that's about it. Everything else you can get on the 360.

PC simply thrashes all the competition. No where else can you find a assortment of great competitive gaming and casual gaming.

After the PC i suggest the wii for its unique gaming, and then the PS3 for it's assortment of JRPGs if you are that type. Then again ;P the 360 seems to be trying to steal the glory there too ^^

anyways.

PC > Wii > whatever else

The PC, ok that's fine, but that doesn't count in this poll/thread.
The Wii has **** games except for SSBB, MadWorld, and The Conduit.
The PS3 costs more than the 360, and has only few exclusives that suck except for Resistance and Killzone.

The 360 is everything you need. Halo 3 is still one of the biggest games on the ****ing planet, and the next 2 Halo games that come out will be a hit! And you can't forget the exclusives: L4D, BioShock (well not anymore), Halo Series, and others.

Besides, you can get Modern Warefare:2 for the 360 also.

No but me as a gamer, I go for graphics, which is why when I upgrade my computer, I always go top of the line. Xbox 360 also has a bigger and better gaming library, but we don't need to get into that. When I played, I didn't play for fun, I played competitively, so I played for money and the challenge, but there was some enjoyment to it, other days it felt like a chore.

Graphics don't matter completely, but they do have some role in games, especially if you play competitively.

For example, shadows. You can see when your opponents are coming, where they are, etc ...

Yeah, Xbox 360's are better than Playstation 3's and Wii's, I have all three. Xbox 360's have more and better games, LIVE costs but if you do the math it costs less than 11 pence a day and besides you are paying for the reliable Microsoft servers(apart from on any EA Game which is just really unreliable as they use EA servers), Sony uses the servers chosen by the companies who created the game which are nearly always 'Laggy' and unreliable while Nintendo servers are probably even more reliable but the online service is very boring and pointless. You also get the great LIVE service outside of games as well, you can see exactly what your friends are doing, it informs you of what game they are playing and what they are doing inside the game, you can compare achievements with them to see what they have accomplished in the game, much like Playstation 3 Trophies but better and trackable. You get access to interviews with game producers and developers, demos of unreleased games, trailers, add-ons, movies and television programs in standard and high definition quality.
There is an upcoming feature which could possibly change the gaming world, Project Natal, exclusively for the Xbox 360, it is a high quality camera fitted with a microphone that tracks 3rd dimensional movement in every part of your body and recognises voice commands, instead of using a controller to command your ingame character, use yourself, you are the contrrioller, if you were playing Grand Theft Auto IV for instance(even though there would need to be an update to make it compatable with Project Natal) and you were goiing to make Niko punch a russion thug who has been hassling Roman you would actually throw a punch and Niko would throw it exactly the same as you did in the real world. Lionhead studios(creators of the hugely succesful Fable series) has been working on a project known as 'Milo', it is basically software that shows a boy named Milo, you can talk to him and do different actions and he will recognise what you are saying or doing and respond appropriately, he might bring you to the pond to play with the fish where you could see your reflection and make the water ripple according to your movements.
It is much like the Wii but more responsive and generally more awesome.

uh lets see... xbox 360 ftw becouse ps3 is expensive doesnt have great games unlike 360 (prototype, Fable 2, Left 4 dead, Gta IV) live isnt expensive and pi havent recieved RRoD yet becouse i actually take care of mine and because its BS

Games are meant to be enjoyed, fair enough upgrade to get better graphics and stuff but why do you play if you don't really enjoy it? I see what you are saying about the competetiveness of gaming but I can't see why you remain gaming without enjoying it.

Money. It's not that it's not enjoyable, it's fun a lot of the time, but sometimes you have commitments to your team, and you have to practice and scrim when you may want to chill with friends or just enjoy a nice day instead.

Ok, this is why trying to compare games systems is stupid, they're intended for different audiences. Wii is for more casual play, therefore the graphics don't even need to be that great, yet it has a few hardcore games like Mario Galaxy and The Conduit to keep it respectable at the very least. The Xbox 360 has an emphasis on multiplayer experience, hence why Xbox Live is so great, plus, the graphics aren't anything to scoff at. The PS3 is for people who want crisp, clean and amazing visuals. There isn't anything wrong with any of this, trying to compare Techno to Bluegrass to Punk Rock, all are intended for a specific group. That being said, my Wii game is almost done downloading.:thumbs

Xbox 360, bigger and better game library, better graphics (comparison tests on highest performance situations, even though Sony overstocked the PS3 hardware wise), and don't forget Xbox Live which destroys the online experience of all other consoles.

Bigger library? I'll give you that one. Better though? Not so sure about that one. First of, what pretty much EVERYONE fails to understand is that when comparing consoles, you don't talk about multiplatform games. That being said, I can't exactly say the Xbox 360 has many great ones. Halo, come on, that is wayyy over rated. I agree, the PS3 also may not have many good exclusives. However, the difference between Xbox 360 and PS3 exclusives is that the PS3 exclusives that don't suck, turn out AMAZING.

You may say the Xbox 360 has better graphics than the PS3.. but you fail to mention that it's not by much. There isn't a HUGE difference between them.

And actually, the Xbox 360 online play does not beat the PS3's free online play. I'll tell you why, it actually has to do with a specific item bundled with all Xbox 360s. Care to take a guess? No? It's the d*mn mic. Those annoying little f*ckers on the mics. The reason there are far more people playing Xbox 360 over the PS3 is simple. Kids want a gaming console, they're not gonna buy it themselves because well.. they're kids. So who buys them? That's right, the parents. And most parents aren't gonna spend $400 on a console when they can get the cheaper $200 one. THAT is the sole reason the Xbox 360 sells more. Not the games, not the online, the price. So of course, when the majority of the gamers have Xbox 360 they're gonna assume it's better.

@bb521 - Don't go for any console just because of this thread. Obviously, and you knew before posting, the Xbox 360 was going to win because probably 1% of the people here even have a PS3. I would recommend going with whatever most of your friends have so you can play with them. Look at the exclusives on each console and compare which ones YOU would prefer to be playing. The Xbox 360 games are cheaper than the PS3 games and they also get cheaper faster. Especially used.

Being a video game developer (I develop for both, Playstation 3 and XBOX 360) people ask me almost daily which platform I think is better.

Whoa really? You should help me out since I'm trying to get into that :p

No but me as a gamer, I go for graphics, which is why when I upgrade my computer, I always go top of the line.

As Pyros said before, top of the line isn't necessary. You choose to go higher than you need. Basically a waste of money and a lot of potential not being used.

Longer time out in the game industry course it's got a bigger library. Better library? Sure, the way microsoft throws the money to developers they'd have no choice lol. But Wii has better exclusives lol ;P. And live does destroy but y'know, its paid for lol =/

seriously?! o_O what the heck are you doing here ^^

What the HELL is wrong with you Pyros?! I should ****ing slap you across the face!

The PC, ok that's fine, but that doesn't count in this poll/thread.
The Wii has **** games except for SSBB, MadWorld, and The Conduit.
The PS3 costs more than the 360, and has only few exclusives that suck except for Resistance and Killzone.

The 360 is everything you need. Halo 3 is still one of the biggest games on the ****ing planet, and the next 2 Halo games that come out will be a hit! And you can't forget the exclusives: L4D, BioShock (well not anymore), Halo Series, and others.

Besides, you can get Modern Warefare:2 for the 360 also.

Cuz I'm a real gamer ^^? PC games thrash ever other type of game out there in terms of longevity and worth. Thats plain and simple. Few games meet up to standards set by PC.

The 360 is not on my want list any time soon. Anything the 360 can do. A PC does better and not only that. Exclusives on the 360 are lackluster at best, compared specifically for FPS' there's no better control scheme than mouse + keyboard. The quality of control + the ease of communication make PC the winner in all circumstances.

As for why I like the Wii second best? It's obvious. There is NOTHING bad about the wii. Graphics are graphics, you dont NEED them to play an enjoyable game. Tetris is a great game not because it's graphics really speak to you, but rather it's fun. Tetris on the DS multiplayer? That's hot.

I think a big issue that people forget when thinking about graphics is what does it mean. Pumping out more polygons and having better AA means nothing the majority of the time. It doesnt matter because it's there to be appreciated in still frames. When you play a game you enjoy you do NOT go wondering about the graphical prowess of a game. Its plain and simple. On screen shots everyone RAVES about it. And sure the initial "feel" is that this game is awesome. BUT when it comes down to it, once the game play has started and you start playing the game you will not care at all if you enjoy it. WOW factor is severely overrated imo.

Last issue I need to address is that fact that more important that graphics is art direction. Cel shaded? 2D? Cartoony 3D? Realistic 3D? its all an art direction that people choose to go in. THAT is what makes the game look and feel good. This is probably the most overlooked point there is.

Here, I'll end the thread right now. Wii maximum video display resolution 480p.
Xbox 360 and PS3 maximum video display resolution 1080p. Xbox 360 does it better though.

I care to disagree ^^. Why? You might ask? Well its easy. the 360 gets all the attention and the PS3 gets the port. Simple as that. So in terms of cross platform games the 360 might deliver better but that's because the developers choose to do it from the 360 first.

In terms of unique releases for the 360 and the PS3 the PS3 CONSISTENTLY delivers 1080p over the 360 and the 360 can MAYBE consistently deliver 720p releases. In fact comparatively the 360 cannot do as much as you think it can. Halo 3 wasnt even outputting in 720p. It COULDNT output in 720, they scaled it as a result and most of the people glossed over it.

I never thought of it like that.
One thing I want to point out is that any game with Mario in is not a hardcore game.

Wrong. Mario does not mean the game is hardcore. But it does not mean its casual.

There are plenty of hardcore mario games out there. Do you know the definition of hardcore gaming? Careful with your words ^^ cuz the true definition of hardcore is often lost in translation and time.

That's what everyone argues ^^ but its wrong.
Mario, the majority, is similar yes. But the stories do differ from each one. But they never were heavy on the storylines to be honest with.

Mario's always been about platforming, and that's what it does and it does it well :D

That said. Halo is the same thing every time, but the same style LOL

Oh right, in terms of what Ninty has...
Pokemon
Mario
Pikmin
Zelda
Earth Bound
Fire Emblem
F-Zero
Golden Sun
Kirby
Starfy
Punch out
Starfox
Wario
Metroid

All owned and made by Nintendo ;D
I'm sure there's more lol, but you never know ^^

The fact that people play Halo is that its a great multiplayer, but yes it is the same and does get old after a while which is why i have not played in a while:crap

I guess its just the fact that every time i think of Wii or Nintendo MARIO!! (The only nintendo console i have really played was the n64) comes right to my head. I really cant think of a popular Wii game thats not Mario.

LOL, its true. The multiplayer is pretty decent :P COD4 imo has better multiplayer lol.

But me being a competitive gamer i love my multiplayer to death. Nintendo, i can honestly say, does not really get me into my groove for my competitive gaming needs. but that said neither does the 360 nor the PS3

I'm a PC gamer for all those needs, and ATM it's L4D and DotA that really pull me :P and have been pulling me for like... years ^^. Before that it'd be SC:BW and diablo1/2 lol

Multiplayer is the most important thing for me in a game and i have grown more attached to PC games even though I really have only played css, tf2, and gmod But They just never get with the fact theres so many different ways to play them.

Yep, multiplayer is that important to gaming ;D you should get L4D or get into DotA and ill play with ya hahah

I definitely agree with the whole "different ways to play" thing cuz man... WC3 and SC:BW i spent hours on end playing custom maps... that was truly the time of creativity and budding game designers

Anyways... yes he is. lol. It's just a really messed up character imo ^^ he's a plumber..... and he goes around saving people by jumping on things lol. Thats about it =/ how much more weird can you get right ? =/

Actually, those tower defense games that is all the rage nowadays, desktop tower defense, and the other spin offs (pixel junk monsters.. grrr) that everyone tries to market off of was originally created as a starcraft map....

i hate how everything credits desktop tower defense... pisses me off lol.

Defense of the Ancients
its a Warcraft 3 custom map.

its popularity literally exploded. A well crafted well balanced multiplayer game with consistent new updates that would make game and game developers jealous. there are an estimated 4-6 million players playing the game, and that is by PURELY word of mouth. That is to say that no one advertised this, it's not on tv, people just told each other about a game they liked its popularity spread.

just for reference. 4-6 million is a big number btw ^^ its a sale target that few games will reach, and devs are happy when their popular games get past 1 million lol.

lol glad someone realizes it ^^

Just a quick definition....

Hard core is not simple FPS or RTS. It's the definition of games that you put effort into. Casual is defined by pick up and play games. Hope in and join for a bit or play for like 10 minute sessions.

Mario games are actually very hard core. And from their roots they were hard core. You dare not turn off your NES when playing mario because there was no save ;D and you'd have to do it all over again lol.

SO yeah, I mean certainly back then there were hard core pacman players and hardcore donkey kong players. only games that really are just made and meant for casual gaming with a majority audience playing them casually should be called casual.
