The problem with this whole "console vs. console competition" is that many of the fans are ignorant.

A lot of the Wii fans, for instance, are not aware ofit's tecnical inferiority.


They just go "ooh pretiii shiniii remote control!"

yes but most of the ps3 fans don't know Graphics don't make the game

and thats what all that raw power is going to do is make the graphics better do you really think the game play is gonna be any better then whats on the wii i doubt


here is the thing

a ps3 is nothing but a ps2 on striods same can be said about the 360

the wii is new it's not just a rebuild gamecube

Games are half the console. Without games, it can be said that every upraded video game paltform is a just "the previous one on steriouds." What more can it be then an incremental improvement in hardware.


Here's the toher thing : Graphcis don't amke a game, true. But, the PS3 has the potential for good graphcis and good gameplay, while the Wii only has the potential for the latter.

Good graphcis and good gameplay beats only good gameplay.

I always found debating about consoles amusing for some odd reason. What good does it do to argue about an entertainment platform of all things; "Oh, mine is more fun and more innovative!" is one said quite a bit. No use trying to understand it I guess, I'll only give myself heartburn.

(Not a response to the comments here, just the whole console war thing in general)

Personally, I don't care which one's better.

I hate console controls.

I think the wii is very cool, and it also has great graphics. The PS3 has slightly better graphics then the Wii but it doesnt have the fun fealing that the Wii has when you play it. It is the next step to you actualy feeling like your are in the game. Your movement with the controller(s) affects what happens very much in the game. Where as PS3 it is pretty much only when you are flying or something.

I think the PS3 has the potential to come out in the lead, but not anytime soon. It's gotta drop in price. Not only that but you pretty much have to hook one up to a widescreen HDTV which the vast majority doesn't have sitting in the den/dorm/ect.. and of course Blue Ray is designed for 1080p which is the expensive HDTV's :roll: Then of course there's that little issue that thus far the titles out for the PS3 don't look any better than the 360's. This could be the mark of a trend for cross console titles. (wisdom being that if the number consoles is small, then it's not profitable to make a PS3 exclusive, so then you might as well develop for 360 and port to the PS3.)

The Wii while although "graphicallly inferior" to the other two major systems more than makes up for it with the unique controler design, and reasonable price. I've used it and seen people that aren't gamers pick one up and use it with ease. When Stephen Colbert can pick one up and use one, it means that the system has mainstream appeal. Hand a PS3 controler to a non-gamer and they are intimidated, the wii remote doesn't for some reason. Guys, girls, kids, teens, ect. It's like the system and games were specifically designed to apeal to everyone.

I'd like to pick up a PS3 but only after it's got a decent amount of games, i've secured a big screen, and it's come down in price a bit. Hopefully others don't take the same approach - nobody will buy it, and it'll go the route of the NeoGeo/3DO.

The major problem with PS3 is that Sony is hardware company and due to this fact a lot is lacking in the software dept. of the PS3. Many features just don't work and hinder performance. I think the most attractive thing about teh Wii is that it is only $250.00 and everything is fully functional (besides the online(in US)) while people are paying $700+ for something that is in now way worth its money.

I'm right there with you Bjorn, i think that for sony, the PS3 is more of a blue ray player that also happens to play games. In the past sony has continually tried to stop people from refering to the PS3 as a console, and more as a family media center/computer. It's obvious that sony's real plan is to get the consoles into homes so that it can win the blueray vs HDDVD war, the games are just a candy coating to lure early adopters in. It's a pretty good plan... and if they had be able to keep supply up with demand at launch and through this holiday season it might have been a good bet, but they droped the ball, and it'll be a while before they can even try to get it back. Ultimately it'll probably win out as the dominate optical storage medium because it has nearly 2x the storage capacity of HD-DVD, and prices will eventually come down to mainstream figures.

Obviously what we need is a "uber box" a system that's twice as powerfull as the PS3, will run Xbox360, PS3, Wii, and PC software, and only costs about 499.

Not until the second coming, brother. Either that or until Microsoft takes over the world. Whichever comes first.

Well, sony might have a partial answer to that. Aparently there's a rumur that the new Gods in charge of Sony's Hardware department for the PS3 said that redesign of the PS3's controler is in works (will be styled after the Wii remote lol) and will be able to run "3rd party OS's". -- If true that's not much of a surprise since people have managed to get linux running on PS3's, perhaps rather than trying to prevent it, they've opted to try to control it. I'd be looking to get windows XP or Vista on it. Maybe the PS3 could actually run FSX with all the bells and whistles. :P

In other geeky console related news, a friend of mine got his wii remote working with his PC, and directed me to this website to prove he's not lying. http://www.destructoid.com/wiimote-joys ... 8295.phtml

Yea, another weird thing is seeing how people use their Wii remote with just a line of candles and no sensor bar. Quite a few people have done it actually.

How many of you guys even have a Wii?

I have one and it isn't "that great" It is fun for a while then it gets boring. The only fun game is Wii sports. I think the PS3 is a lot better.

That is because you are, quite plainly, a communist. Nintendo is as American as apple pie, whiskey, and horse racing. Who doesn't want to lose a few(or a lot) excess pounds while they play Legend of Zelda? :lol:
