But I will say this for PC - he has most of the 360 library to play - AND HALO AND GTA!
Hurrah for PC!
IGN: The holiday Wii lineup looks thin for the hardcore crowd. We see this. Gamers see this. What, if anything, is Nintendo planning to address it?
Oh good, I am neither a gamer or hardcore. Saves me from having to be IGNorant.Right, Down, A, Down, Right, Up

I've ben a big Nintendo fan since the SNES days (I could only play NES at my local Currys because I couldn't persuade dad into getting me one) and I've owned all Nintendo's home consoles since the SNES. But I've never been so dissapointed in a Nintendo console as I have with the Wii. If I'd have know back in December 2006 that the current state of the Wii was going to be so shitty almost three years on I wouldn't have touched it with a barge pole.
The main drawback for my other choice, the 360 was the failure rate. Even so, I'd have rather gone with that than a Wii had I known better.

Oh, I could go on and on -
...but you've been warned once in this thread already and you'd rather not be banned a third time.
That's what you meant to say.

I think people should buy the console(s) they want and be happy about it. If you're not, sell it. What other people think about what consoles you buy is irrelevant. It's your money. I don't use a PC to play games on, instead I choose to do it on a console that was designed specifically for gaming. Buying a console for me has absolutely nothing to do with money. It's the games. Does this console feature games I want to play? If it does, I buy it. If it doesn't...okay I still buy it.

I bought the Wii because of its interesting gameplay possibilities, so I'd say I still would have gotten the Wii. If it wasn't for that I might have bought the PS3 instead.

This. The Wii had a game I wanted A LOT, so I bought one. The fact that it was cheaper than the others was bonus. I have yet to see anything on either Xbox 360 or PS3 that makes me want to own them. If I didn't have a Wii I'd still be playing MAME on my iBook.

This and this. This is all I was saying - ppl get excited about software - not the price on the box! Sure, you need the money - but you have to have a REASON to spend it!
And it is great we have diersity of opinion here like Calcuon - I would not trade my Wii for a SNES - its not even close. SNES has some great games, but boy, I just cannot see it comparing. As bad as ppl think Wii shovelware is (and I certainly do not buy the worst games for a system!) - how many generic platformers and jump and shoot games does SNES have? Like, most of the library! NES was a much better system then SNES IMHO - much like the Wii the Nes had fresh game IPs that changed the face fo gaming...
And please Chicken Brutus - I am not being out of line here compared to ANYONE in this thread - do not ban someone just because you can - that is abuse of power and I do not think you are that kind of person.....

I've owned most of nintendo's consoles (SNES onwards) as well as the PS1 ans PS2..... I have to say the Wii is my favourite by some way. Xbox and PS3's diddy joypad way of playing seems so backward even if the graphics are "state of the fart". I don't mind it for retro-gaming, but for newr, modern games it just seem so.....
Answer therefore: Wii hands down.

As a nintendo gamer since the SNES I went for the Wii as you cant beat the old Nintendo exclusives and the vc was a major plus. I then shelled out for the PS3 last year for not only the games and free online but the bluray and media capabilities.
Both have their strengths and weaknesses but I have to say the PS3 is really coming into its own.

The real answer here is to have two roommates or two good friends who live nearby. Then you each buy different consoles. Now you can play all three whenever you want. Problem solved!

Since when has Mario Kart been a genre?
Mario Galaxy had been outdone with Super Mario Bros.

Kart Racing isnt a genre???
I like 2-d Mario better than 3-d mario as well - but guess what? Thats 2 different genres - 2-d and 3-d platforming!

As much as I'd hate to lock a thread like this I think a pre-emptive strike is in order.
Sorry, this topic has been locked.
