    PS3, XBox360, or NWii???

    I'm thinking of copping a new game system being that my PS2 and XBox have suddenly become outdated.

    3 questions

    How should I go about picking a system?

    Which has the better GFX?

    Which has the better games?

    the ps3 is the most powerful of the 3.....games won't be an issue so much anymore because MOST titles are cross platform now and will be in the future. imo i think the 360 is the best choice right now. ps3 will be too pricey and going through growing pains for a year after its release, which the 360 has already gone through and a slew of games is ready to release this falll.


    if you like online play or want to experience it i also recommend the 360....xbox live is like what? 50 a year....but it is phenomenal.

    do you have an hdtv? as the 360 and ps3 will only look so good on a sdtv...


    also let me add while the ps3 is technically more powerful, that doesn't equate to better games or gameplay...

    the xbox 360 most definatly, but thats probably b.c ive never been a sony fan, and the ps3 is way to expensive and also within the next couple months you will get a better deal on a 360

    IF that is the case I would just stick with your PS2 and Xbox. This year there really isn't a game coming out for the ps3 or xbox360 that totally trumps the quality of things you can still get on your ps2 and xbox.

    I saw a xbox360 on a bigscreen non high def system and it doesn't look THAT much better than a xbox.

    Hell most people I know who have a xbox360 are still playing Halo 2. I would say wait till there are at least 3 games that you have to have on one of the next gen systems and then make your choice.

    If you are making a choice now, it is my opinion that the PS3 is way more future proof than the xbox360. Right now there might not be too much difference, but 3 years down the road when parallel processing becomes easier to take advantage of, the PS3 may be quite ahead. Plus I think a not standard hard drive is a huge mistake. Don't listen to the xboxites or the sony haters. That was a bad decisions for gamers.

    I would say if you want a good system now get the xbox360 but I see ps3 having a brighter future but without ps3 out your not gonna get good judgements.

    you do realize the future proof argument isn't really valid (see PS1 and PS2). At the end of the day, it will come down to games, like it always has.

    I'd get the PS3 but you should wait for a price drop. Well thats what I'm doing.
    In the meantime I'll get a Wii.

    I have been waiting for the PS3 because I am so used to the controls and have always used Sony.

    Is the 360 going to drop in price soon since PS3 will be released?
