Wii Xbox or playstation 3

it depends on what you want? Are you a serious gamer?

The WII is great fun to play with your mates after a beer, etc. The XBOX, and PS3 are better in terms of graphics etc

If your after a games console then go for WII. If you want an entertain system - games, HD videos, music, internet etc and backward compatabilty then PS3.

nahh, id go for the 360 as ive recently bought the ps3 and the games are shite, best value for money has to be the xbox

although the Wii is good if your having a laugh with mates, and it helps if you got a big tv, but its rubbish by yourself.

That being said the 360 has a habit of dying quite regularly, and if you want HD then you have to buy an add on for the 360, whereas the ps3 has a built in blu-ray player. Problem with the PS3- no games for it.

If you want "Grown up games" then go for the Xbox 360. Halo 3 is damm good. However for fun the Wii takes some beating.

Own a Wii & 360

Wii - Cheaper than the other two, more fun with more than one person esp if before town. Games are OK-ish but mostly aimed at the younger gen & FPS games are weird to control.

360 - Bit more expensive, prem package is really needed for the extras etc but has a massive range of games/upgrades and looks brill on HD screens! Xbox live is also a lot of fun. Needs looking after though, over-heating & disc errors are a common problem.

Ps3 - Not played at all, from what ive heard little games, way too expensive.

Last weekend woolworths had an offer on the wii at 159.99, not sure if its still avail.

I have a Wii, and think it's the best thing since sliced beer. At the moment there are very few games that are adult-orientated (Wii-mote porn, anyone?) but even the kiddie games are fun to play.

Cheap, compared to the other two. And when you can pick up a DVD player for £30(ish) it's still well under the price of an XBOX or a PS3.

Yes, the graphics are not as lush as the others, and yes, some killer apps like the new Grand Theft Auto are not going to be on the Wii, but all round it is just much easier to use, and very intuitive.

Plus, the women like it.

I've got a Wii and a PS3 and let me tell you the Wii hasn't seen use in months. I think your best bet might be the XBOX360, the PS3 is more of a home cinema and networking/internet gaming tool and it's games aren't quite good enough yet imo whereas the 360 has a more 'plug and play' feel to it.

If however you want a blue-ray/dvd enhancer and a games console for your big ol' plasma then the PS3 wins.

If you don't have a plasma/lcd and don't want to spend much then I'd probably go for the Wii, Resident Evil 4 is quite fun as are most of the games (albeit short lived) and there are a few arcade style shooters coming out for it soon.

I bought a PS3 and am quite happy with it. Technically the best and most advanced console but games are a bit thin on the ground at the moment. There are some crackers due though like Metal Gear 4, Gran Turismo 5, and the new Grand Theft Auto. Would you bet aginst Sony in the long run with their track record ??
