********PLEASE HAVE HONEST RESPONSES, WITH DETAILS TO BACK UP YOUR CHOICE. NO FANBOYS, FLAMING FAGGOTS, OR SILLY MONKEYS****

SO.. It has been several years since the release of all of the current generation of consoles. Many AAA Exclusives have been released, and everyone has chosen their favorite system. So who wins? YOU DECIDE!

Candidates:

-------------

Microsoft Xbox 360 - The true powerhouse of multiplayer and online gaming. The obvious multiplayer console experience -- with exclusive games including: Halo 3, Gears of war 1 & 2, Halo 3 ODST, Mass Effect, Forza 2/3 , Fable 2 + Many More! This console also features the upcoming "Project Natal" - The true controller free experience! Console Price $199 - $399

Sony Playstation 3 - The True hardware powerhouse. This is the most "Powerful" system out there. You also get the most bang for your buck! Featuring built in wi-fi, blu-ray, free** online gaming, and system exclusives including: Littlebigplanet, Killzone 2, uncharted 1/2 , socom, warhawk, ratchet and clank, ++. This console also features the upcoming motion controlling wands! Console price $299 - $399

Nintendo Wii - The True family friendly console. Featuring a motion controller, this console is sure to bring your family together. System exclusives include: Super Mario Galaxy, LOZ: TP, Boom Blox, Wii sports / resort, Wii fit, metroid prime, ++ Console Price: $199

So Who Wins? For me, it's a tie. Each console has their benefits, and while i may play one more than the other, i still enjoy them all.

Ah. I missed these threads!

I'm going to call it a tie since I own all three systems. They are each good for different things and having all 3 makes a remarkable next-gen trio.

My vote is the PS3 it literally does everything. Its the center piece to my media center. I have yet to find a file type it won't play, it has a built-in gigabit connection (Wifi is too slow to transcode hd movies) and it has a clean layout. Its the casual console too, I have not played a game on it in 2 weeks but I still find myself watching movies with it and playing music on it.

gigabit connection? you mean the ethernet port?

and I agree with what you said about the PS3. it really is a media powerhouse.

I also own all three, they all have their strong points and have equal but separate functions in my home entertainment bedroom...tie

Edit : The pc is still by far most versatile, advanced, and badass piece of hardware you can own and is a far better media powerhouse than any of the consoles could hope to be.

I have to go with PS3. I like Xbox 360 a lot too (we own both), but PS3 is what I use for most everything now days. Not to mention I like the look of it better (the Xbox 360 just looks more childish, whereas the PS3 is very sleek). The PS3 is used for HD TV and bluray movies too, which is nice. The only thing I still do on Xbox 360, probably because I haven't taken the time to figure it out on the PS3, is that I do my instant downloading of Netflix through the Xbox 360.

Anyone else feel that this the Wii wiil be the last successful Nintendo console? It cannot really compete with the PC or the Xbox/Playstation in the "hardcore" gaming market. I think that all the old people that bought this things will not see the point in upgrading to next generation console to get Wii play 8, and lately there has been a pretty steady stream of complete shit coming out in the form of "video games". There are like 2 games besides Mario and Zelda that caught my eye for the Wii, and I won't even get those unless I see them on sale for mad cheap (like 14.99 cheap maybe 19.99)
