I have a friend who owns a PS3, so whenever I want some good graphics I can just go on over to his house and play it. Better than wasting $700+ on a gaming system.

Don't you think Xbox 360 has better graphics?

No, the graphics on the Xbox 360 are the same 1080p/i graphics the PS3 uses. However, the PS3 has HD compatibility but the new Xbox 360 Elite has the same HD compatibility, except on DVD discs instead of Blu-Ray.

What do you mean? If you mean graphical processing power then yes, the PS3 has 650 MHz while the Xbox 360 Elite only has 500 MHz.

The PS3 has more graphics power, they just havent put it to full use yet, I guess that will decide which is better in the long run.

That still doesn't take into account the price of the system and the availibility of games. Xbox obviously has an advantage in that terroritory for now, but with the release of the not-so-affordable Elite and PS3's growing number of games, I think it is safe to say that the PS3 will, in the long run, become a much better option that the 360. The two thing that both systems can't beat against the Wii in are price and innovation. And when a fun, interactive game system costs a fraction the amount of the others while providing many useful things (like Weather, News, Internet browsing, and downloadable Virtual Console classic games) with the only major exception being graphical power, it is becoming a more common purchase for many.

Yeah but I think the only fun thing for Wii is Wii Boxing.

Well, that's probably because that's the only thing you've experienced on the Wii. The other sports, especially Tennis, are extremely addictive as well as "WarioWare" which has gotten amazing reviews because of the hundreds of minigames that involve the Wii's innovation greatly. And also, depending on what you like, games like Call of Duty 3 can might also be your cup of tea as the simulation the Wii remote gives as a gun is a very nice change to moving joysticks for aiming.

I'm happy with my Wii, but to honest you shouldn't buy one now. There aren't many good games out yet, but there will be later in the year.

So if you're considering a Wii, wait. Even if you want one now you probably can't find it anyway :P Nintendo has sold 6.5 million so far and most places are still out of stock; production will be increased soon I hear.

I still say that with enough money, a computer will beat any console hands down. Cause I don't think a console could beat a computer with 4 quadcore processors and 4 graphics cards running together.

It certainly doesn't win on value :|

The PC sure beats any console at running word processors! And don't you forget that!

i think that it is stupid that the us will not have a ps3 pricedrop until 2009, so why not just get it early? i cant wait for burnout 5, nfs 11, and gt5 to come out for it.

Meh, i'd rather go with the 360. Since i'm a FPS kinda guy, I would go with the 360 since it has the best FPS's out..

I mainly like PC because there isn't a specific game genre mainly targeted in it. Plus my PS2 is outdated... :lol:

@ Bojan: And the PC also owns everything at spreadsheets and easy navigation (mouse & keyboard).

@ Carcrazy: Wow, you have 3 PS3's in a Wal-Mart on sale?? That's incredibly rare, people lined up 2 days in advance at places like Superstore (A grocery store that had a couple PS3's shipped in) just to get their hands on something like that. What country do you live in?

That's extremely odd, because I'm pretty sure it's still possible to make a profit from buying it and selling it on eBay.

My friend tried doing that with 1 of the 2 that he purchased, and bidding got up to $1000 USD, but unfortunately the winner was a scammer, and he decided just to return it to the store after about 5 months.

You know he could have sewed him for that much... bidding on an item is signing a contract, and not paying is violating that contract. He could have gotten $1000 and been able to keep both.

Well, under eBay policies they use past user history to see who is a scammer, and they can't stop the scammers from bidding, just stop them from recieving the item, and since it was the highest bid, what could my friend do?
