Since the Wii thread seemed to be flooded by this debate, I though I might as well make a topic for it here. Which one do you think is best? Which one are you most likely to get? Which one do you already have?


EDIT: dammit. I meant to put Xbox 360


Well, you guys know what I mean.


EDIT2: Thanks to whichever mod fixed the title.

I'm more likely to get a wii because it's more awesome for less money.

Well this thread should be fun...eh

I'll be getting a PS3 for all of the series' I'm already interested in from the PS2. And yes before the 360 fan boys start telling me some of them are going to Xbox, I know, I know. But not all of them are, which for me, is enough to warrant a PS3.

As soon as it's affordable of course, which is probably a long, long way off.

The reason I'm not getting either of the other two is fairly simple. The Wii, while surely a fun console at parties and drunk, just doesn't seem to have what I'm looking for in a console, I don't want a console as a party peice, or enjoy it's brand of fun alone, the games just don't seem like they'd be very much fun single player.

The Xbox I've generally hated since it started, and yes because I was at one point a PS fan boy, I've since grown up, but still I can't stand the Xbox controllers, or annoying Halo fags.

Oh and the PS3 has a free online thing, so thats always a plus.

That's basically the biggest reason why I plan on getting one. Medal of Honor, Need For Speed, Half Life, MGS, and the Madden series are all gonna be on the PS3. And yes, some are gonna be on Xbox 360, but as coneman said, not all of them.

Fortunately, I either fucking hate (Need For Speed, Half Life) am unimpressed by (MGS) or have grown tired of (Madden) all of those series.

I love tekken, crash bandicoot and twisted metal for the playstation system... I also really like need for speed and madden.

If I were to get a console, it'd be ps3. However, I'm never willing to pay more than $100-$150 for a game system, so if I ever am to get any of them, it won't be until close to the next gen, haha.

You hate Half Life? I freaking grew up with that game!


H8 to you. :mad: :mad: :mad:

Which is totally the way to go because the price is way down.

Wow. The fact that there's people that have grown up to games like Half Life makes me feel really fucking old.

Thomas
07-11-2007, 04:29 PM
Well, it's almost 9 years old. Actually, i've played Need For Speed longer than alf Life, but Half Life had more of an impression on me. Same with Unreal.

07-11-2007, 04:30 PM
You're like, two whole generations younger than me.

Thomas
07-11-2007, 04:35 PM
I'm 17. How old does that make you?

nieh
07-11-2007, 04:39 PM
23. I remember playing Half-Life at my friend's house when I was in high school. I don't remember what grade specifically though.

Thomas
07-11-2007, 04:47 PM
Yeah, I got that game only a few years after I actually started playing video games on my computer, which was in 1998, so I kinda got a late start with video games, but Half Life is one of those games that I just never stopped playing.

07-11-2007, 04:52 PM
I own a Wii, just so I can say 'fuck you' to Xbox 360's backwards compatibility bullshit. My friend was having an ass-fuck of a time trying to play Morrowind.

How can anyone hate Half-Life? I think it's one of the last classic FPS's along with Duke Nukem, Doom, Unreal, etc.

Well, I think almost everyone knows from the other thread that I've got a Wii and a PS3. Of the two I think the PS3 is the best, just because of all of it's awesome games coming out very soon (not Madden, not NfS, not MOH): Heavenly Sword, Rock Band, Uncharted, MGS4, etc. I'm also not sure if buying a Wii was a good investment, but meh, I'll atleast be happy playing the new Mario Kart they've announced for it today.




Huh? Oh yeah. Killzone (http://www.gametrailers.com/player/21600.html).

if i were to get one, i'd probably get a wii. and for one reason: fun.

i'd like a ps3, but only because of the hardware. i wouldn't play games on it, i'd put linux on it and use it for crunching numbers (cell processor ftw).

and no thanks at all for the xbox 360.

RODNEYMULLEN
07-11-2007, 11:32 PM
I don't play video games that much, but i would say the ps3 is the best. Because there is allways something wrong with x boxes and nintendo has cartoony graphics.

That's what you consider PS3's mark of death?

Anyway, I'm not a big fan of this generation of consoles. The Xbox360 has most of the games I want to play, but it malfunctions if you so much as look at it wrong. I currently have a $400 paperweight, and I have nightmares about red rings of death.

Uh, pretty much exactly what he said, as usual.

I think it will be a long time before I get one though. I seem to have lost almost all of my interest in video games.

aha. i'm a complete opposite. to me, any console that can facilitate drunken (possibly not fully clothed) hula-hoop swinging, tennis, football and dancy wiggles is an instant winner.

so, yay for the wii =p

Im getting a Wii. Super Snash Bros Brawl is going to be one of the best games ever!

I'm still not finished with my ps2, thank you very much.

I'll probably end up with a PS3 when it stops costing more money than I have (despite me being a long lost heir to that Nigerian prince who really needs to wire a few million dollars to my bank account). I still have yet to play a Wii and that's distressing.

You are taking the original Unreal, right? Because all the other ones after that (basically from Tournament on the PS2 on) were complete crap. I just remember that the original story mode was ridiculously long (at least 40 or 50 hours) and the gameplay was an extreme adrenaline rush.




Oh, and I never played Killzone 1, but holy fuck, that Killzone 2 looks freaking amazing. I'm totally getting that.

You can just send it by mail and get it fixed.

I just saw some still-frames of Gran Turismo 5 and that game is going to be amazing. I showed my mom the pictures and I had a hard time convincing her that they weren't photographs.

How come stuff like this never happens when I play Wii?

edit: now that I think about it, I don't think I've ever played Wii with girls around, so if someone started getting naked that might be a little awkward.

Nintendo just has so much more personality, innovation, originality and charm than the other consles.

mrconeman
07-12-2007, 01:54 PM
Yeah, because we all know consoles are capable of personality and charm.
Whilst being innovative and original in using age old gaming ideas.

Wolfbutter
07-12-2007, 02:00 PM
A consle is perfectly capable of personality and charm...

But when you play the game, the graphics are going to look worst than some images they show you now.

mrconeman
07-12-2007, 02:31 PM
Don't get me wrong, I'm not detracting from Nintendo or the Wii.
I just thought it was pretty lol that he mentions originality and innovation when the general idea has been around for a very long time.

How old is duck hunt?

How old is duck hunt?

it's not the same as duck hunt. at all. the wiimote doesn't merely detect what it's pointed at on the screen, it can tell full movement in a full four degrees of freedom due to the accelerometers.

example:
you can swing it like a bat -- it's not pointed at the screen.
you can hold it with two hands and twist it, like a steering wheel.

Homer

My experience with the Wii:

*swings Wiimote*
*waits*
*swings bat on screen*

But yeah, let's hope newer games can fix that.

well, duh. theres the technological improvement gap of like almost 20 years or somethign, there's an obvious improvement. I said general idea, as in the general interaction with the game with motion and what not.
i cant explain it now, you know what i mean.

The idea for using a controller for games has been used for over thirty years...

Cool.

Duck Hunt was just the example at hand.

Endymion
07-13-2007, 07:38 AM
what i meant is that the wiimote isn't simply a direct evolution of the light gun. it's a *huge* conceptual jump from "tell where on the screen the controller is aimed" to "track arbitrary motion of the controller"
