Which is the better gaming system in your personal view the Wii, Playstation 3, or the Xbox 360.

(Note: PC is not a option as we all know that is the better one of them all.)

Please explain your view below.

Beowulf offered the Argonian a bag of gold.

This post is ASKING for arguments and fanboyisms..

If I had to choose between the 3 I would choose xbox 360 and here is why:

Wii has no serious games. As much as I love Zelda and have the nostalgia for Mario games, Nintendo's business is just recycle, recycle, recycle. You can only make another version of a game so many times before it gets old.

PS3 was a Blu Ray player as far as I was concerned. I didn't need a blu ray player. Most the games I like were on xbox 360 as well or not on PS3 at all (I will get crap for it, but I like Halo and Fable). PS3 DOES offer free online multiplayer gaming, however PS often has issues to get DLC in a timely manner. As someone who spent a few years playing Rock Band and worked hard to get their favorite band into the Rock band Network, this was not good for me. To this day PS3 still is unable to release all the songs that can be found on the 360 due to lacking infrastructure.

Why I like the xbox 360? Well most games available for pS3 are also on 360 (not all), xbox 360 offers kinect which is far more innovative than the PS Move. Xbox has XDA which offers infrastructure to developers and helps have DLC released in a more timely manner (The RBN was built around this).
For me the xbox 360 was more "bang for your buck", when I purchased it the Ps3 was an obscene price and the 360 offered basically the same thing sans blu ray player for cheaper.

I dont regret my purchase.

I would also argue that while PC is great, I don't find it the "best of them all" only because at least you know (in general) that a game is going to work on your console without having to worry about system specs. That is one thing I don't like with PC, also for some weird reason I suck at FPS with a mouse and do much better with a handheld controller.

Jokes aside, I'm with Anex on mostly everything.

I prefer PC games to all of them personally for various reasons; modding and gfx manipulation to name a few. Most of the games I play are only on PC anyway.

Well in my youth I was a sony fanboy master race, I like the xbox controller more than the ps3's but i've switched entirely to console gaming since then but I would have to say out of all the consoles the ps3 would be my favorite especially because I wouldn't have to pay monthly to actually play the games i purchase online.

Obviously I prefer PC but I did have both PS3 and 360 hooked up to my living room TV at one time.

I ended up selling the PS3 on Craigslist.

I enjoy 360's Kinect and that's its sole purpose in my house. Where as the Wii and PS3 require you to hold some sort of control to use their motion games, the Kinect for Xbox doesn't require me to hold anything. (which could end tragically if I did.. I could see myself hitting myself in the face with a Wiimote or throwing the PS-move thing into the TV after some awesome dance moves.)

i play it on the console because i had no PC that could handle skyrim when it came out. now im sad. and ill buy it on PC when its cheap again.

But seriously, get this thread closed, we dont need a console war in here. As with all product wars, its jut harvested by companies to exploit your loyalty.
Stand up agains that by not discussing this matter.

I tend to play RPG/Action games on Xbox 360 and strategy on PC. I'd play all on PC but my PC's crap...

Oh, this thread wasn't so bad, I'll put back my shield ring, anyway, yeah my PS3 all the way, my first games where spyro, medievil, and ape escape on the PS1 and since then it just didn't feel right buying an X-Box, plus the playback ability kept me with playstation, today I just bought a PS1 so I could have them all again (till now I only had a ps2 and ps3).
