Default You are picking between PS3, 360 or Wii

I have put a little money aside and I have decided I want to buy one of these 3 systems this week. I am having a hard time picking, but I want to know which system you would take if you were buying one right now, and why.

Yeah PS3 online is free. I have one and its perfect. I like it a lot more than 360. People say 360 has so many more games, but unless you have no job/school/life, theres plenty of games to keep you busy for PS3. I've been playing Oblivion for the past several months, and haven't even thought about any other games.

And of course, BluRay is great. You won't know until you try it out for yourself. The difference is huge between it and regular DVDs.

For the best deal, go to WalMart or BestBuy, if you buy a PS3, they will give you a free $100 gift card to buy blurays. Cop it before the deal ends!!

Is the $100 gift card for blurays only or also for games? I was at walmart the other day and didnt see anything about this deal.

PS3.


XBox has superior online play (for 50 bucks), that's all.


Rumor is Microsoft is about to announce a new system as well. BluRay is catching on faster than anyone expected because of some major deals with production companies.

I'm about to get a ps3 and own all 3 consoles, hard to pass up for 200$ for the 40gb or 300$ for the mgs4 bundle coming out.

NO

You are picking between a PS3 or a 360, that's it, no Wii.

Good decision, both systems are lightyears ahead of Wii.

If you're looking to spend the majority of your time playing "online" you better go with the 360. Yes, you pay $50 per year for the service, but once you dig your heels into it, you'll realize it was the best decision you've ever made. The PS3 online community is weak, and what's even more important is the fact the PS3 online network is garbage. Don't just take my word for it, do some research.

The differences in online features of the 360 compared to the PS3 is like night and day. I have a 360 and also a Wii. If you're looking for more of a lounge around / having friends over more social gaming experience, go with a Wii no question. If you're more of a "solo gamer" stay away from the Wii.

I wouldn't say buying the PS3 is a bad decision, but getting a 360 is a better decision.
