Well I have not seen this question discussed on the forum. It might of been when I was off busy with work or something, but I am curious as to people's opinions. I've been reading reviews, personal experiences, technical comparisons and anything you can imagine. In the end I'm going to get a PS3 this april when I go home for a week (I'm at college now). Its been back and forth for awhile, but for a variety of reasons I've gone with it. Some being the games, while not having as many as 360 (which everyone always says is such a huge plus...the enormous game library) I find more games on ps3 I'm interested in. The 360 has a remarkably high failure rate and if i'm buying a system i don't want to have to worry about it breaking down after a few months of use. I like playstation/their controllers. Xbox Live might be nice, but my friends have all had good experiences with playstation online and its free. Bluray is another one.

I was wondering though, who here has one or both and which do you prefer? There seem to be so many opinions regarding the new generation of video games...and I always like to hear new ones.

.......or the Nintendo Wii??? I was just debating these 3 myself today. Played Rock Band over the weekend for the first time and it was too much fun. Looks like I need to buy one of these so would love to hear thoughts as well

Ah I meant to at least mention the Wii. Its great, a lot of fun games, and its destroying the other two in sales, buts its not for me. I wanted to ask for comments on it as well, since there are people, as you show, that are interested. I've played Wii a good bit recently, since my friend has the new super smash brothers. Its a lot of fun, but I won't be buying one. Rock Band is pretty cool too. Definitely pulled it off well. I am just waiting to become one of the countless Call of Duty addicts.

Just went thru this over Christmas.

Bought PS3 for my sons, because it had Blu Ray player, and it doubles as Blu Ray HD player.

XBox 360 had better games, but when you compared adding additional cost of HD Drive,
it was more expensive, and in long run Sony Blu Ray is the way to go. Should be some really great games out this year.

Bought Rock Band, and we don't watch movies too much anymore. It is addicting.

Graphics on HD TV are really awesome with PS3.

Well my son bought the X box 360 and sold it. Like me, he doesn't like first person shooters. He bought a Playstation 3, which he likes better. I think the graphics are better with PS3.

I'll stick with the PS2 for now. (Still stuck on God Of War 2)

Wii for one reason: Donkey Kong

The only reason I could see for picking up the PS3 or X360 is if you enjoy the games where your character is the barrel of a gun. They seem to be plentiful for those systems, not so much for Wii. Now that I think about it, PS3 and X360 see to be the platform to go with if you enjoy killing things (many games geared towards violence). I don't enjoy those games, personally.

In addition, I have heard nothing but problems for the PS3 and X360. The sole issue I've heard of with the Wii is that they can't make them fast enough.

Anyway, Donkey Kong...Donkey Kong...Donkey Kong!

I personally do not play video games however, I do sell them and have been in game business
for many years. 360 has a much larger game library available, but only because it has a two year
headstart. And although there were some quirky problems with the earlier consoles quality control
is first rate and return ratio is low. That being said, Microsoft is totally committed to their video game
platform and are definitely in for the long haul. On the other hand, at retail we are starting to see a
spike in PS3 console sales as the next generation of games are starting to catch up with newer technology. And I think Sony will dominate the video game industry by the end of 08 and 09
due to their Blu-Ray technology which has already been chosen to be the way things are headed.
Also noted is the Wii, which is a great family fun system for all ages. But the real core gamers
want the systems that deliver the in your face graphics that are designed to play online in high def
with superior sound,and those type of games will play much better on 360 or PS3. By the way,almost
all of the best new release games will be available on both platforms,with the exception of a few exclusives to each. Should be a great year for gamers.

That's called a first person shooter.

Thanks, I was aware, but thought I'd spell it out for those who didn't know.

PS3 definitely over Xbox 360 it's made more for a HiDef platform.
