Default What Console Should I Get?

I'm deciding to buck up for a 360 or PS3 but I'm not sure which one to get. I want my system to mainly have good FPS games and the counsel with the best online capabilities. I also want the ones with the best DDR's obviously. I'm thinking X-box the the PS3 graphics are looking pretty sweet. Anybody wish to tell me which one I should get?

EDIT BY FISHFISHREVOLUTION: made it console now

1. Console not Counsel

To me, 360 and PS3 graphics are way to similar. If anything I would go for a 360 because of Halo 3. Plus not to mention that Call of Duty 4 is on there along with PS3. But I have a Wii so I really can't help you the rest of the way.

P.S. Why is COD4 on the Nintendo DS but not the Wii?

Between the two, get a 360. It has better games, and it's cheaper.

Honestly, if you don't have one, get a Wii.

COD4 isn't on the Wii because either they didn't want to delay the game by making it for another console, or COD3 sucked so badly, they didn't want to do it again.

4 words... Super Smash Brothers Brawl. 3 more words... Super Mario Galaxy.

Even though your friend has one... what if it's the middle of the night, and you're at your house desperatly wanting to play Brawl? I think going over to their house in the middle of the night wouldn't be good.

The thing about the Wii is that when it was first released it was made more to appeal to the casual gamer in order to bring him into Nintendo's world of fluffy bunnies and daisies. But now that Nintendo has attracted a new audience they are working hard to sate the desire of the hardcore gamers for some hardcore porn - I mean... games.

Wanna know something funny? If you look carefully at a Super Mario Galaxy case, you will see stars under certain letters. They spell something.

S.U.P.E.R. M.A.R.I.O. G.A.L.A.X.Y They are under the letters "u,r,m,r,g,a,y" now put'em together and what do you get?

So you are one of those idiots who think Nintendo only makes little kid games?



PS: Xbox360 hands down if you are choosing between Xbox360 and PS3.

No, I actually own a Wii. I was just defending it in saying that it may have appeared boring to his friend because at the time Nintendo was primarily making games to attract a new audience. I love Nintendo. Don't get me wrong.

Okay...reasons I don't like the wii


1. I'm lazy...don't want to move for extended periods unless arrows are involved

2. Horrible Graphics

3. Games don't appeal to me

4. After a while I herd that the novelty of the whole wii remote wears off

I'm asking which one they think is better so I can take what they said and judge which system I like...360's still looking pretty good.

Sorry oilers.



PS: you are an idiot if you think that graphics is more important than good gameplay.
And also, you hate the wii becasue you are impatient, none of the best games are out yet.
Another thing, Super Mario Galaxy uses the Wii remote, and Gametrailers gave the gameplay part of the review 10/10.

You don't like a lot of movement right? That probably explains the Peter Griffin yearbook picture avatar. lol jk but you don't have to do all the movements, sometimes things can happen with the flick of the wrist. (Just don't flick to hard)

You don't even have to really move much at all for most Wii games. I just sit down and flick my wrists around a bit.

If you're going to be ignorant about Wii and just go "RAAR I PLAY MANLY GAMES!!!11" then get a 360. It doesn't cost three billion dollars and it actually has games worth playing.

Unless, of course, you're a PC gamer. Then just don't get either, because all the good games on those two consoles end up on the PC anyway.

PS - I'm five years older than you and I already own a dozen Wii games. lol kiddie gaemz i no rite

lol 360 definitely.. Go to gamestop and see the amount of games on the shelf. How many titles are worth buying?


Hint: Divide the number of titles the PS3 has by 0.

Answer: buy a 360
