Since we have so many people debating on which system is better in every game that are mentioned here, might as well open up a thread to debate on it :P

 

Just don't start name-calling, flame wars etc etc.

FLAME ON! Seriously folks, we're all adults here (I hope so). Just be constructive. :P

 

My vote goes to the XBOX 360:

 

Pro's

- Great games

- Flashable for backups

- XBOX Live is top notch

Con's

- Can get a RROD

- No built-in wireless

 

My #2 would have to be the Nintendo Wii. But it's about to get hit by a tornado, as I'm afraid if Nintendo isn't going to be able to pull any new good games after Mario Kart Wii. It seems like all I'm seeing is a pile of dust.

 

And PS3 gets last place for me only because most games are out on the 360. However, it does have Blu-ray and it does have free online play. I'm not really too fond of Blu-ray at the moment, only because the movies themselves are too overpriced. But I think in the end, PS3 may just get the #1 spot. It's just a matter of what they have after MGS4 and how many new buyers they can get.

 

EDIT: I'll probably buy a PS3 as soon as it hits the $200-$250 price range. Blu-ray players can't be expensive for that long and that'll bring the price of the PS3 down.

In truth, PS2 BC non-availability really bum me out when I am choosing which console to buy. Here i was hoping that i could play classic PS2 games like FFX and it turns out that I can't! One of the reasons i choose X360.

The BC debacle was the exact point where I stopped thinking 'I'm waiting for the PS3 no matter what' and started thinking 'the Xbox looks alright, has a few good games' etc etc. The rest is history.

xbox360 by a mile. great games, good online, handy media center integration. bonus for firmware flashing and BC. minus points for expensive proprietary hard drives.

 

the Wii just doesn't have the wheels to go all the way for me. lack of good games, cumbersome online. limited storage.

 

PS3 is just sad imo, mish mash online, confusing SKUs, high price, inferior multiplatform games. bonus for easy harddrive upgrades, wifi and bluetooth.

I voted none o the above, because:

 

1. I've never touched any of them.

2. I hate to form opinions on matters that I know very little about

 

Now, in the light of what has been said in the past and taking into consideration what the future might hold, I'll probably for for the PS3. Thanks to the Blu-Ray drive.

I really don't see blueray as a selling point. dvds are still strong, and digital distribution is getting further every day it seems.

DVDs were never even a big thing for me. On my PS2 I must have put a DVD in less than 10 times in the machine's life. Guess that hints at how much I care for Blu-ray.
