View topic - Wii V.S 360
Then two weeks ago? I was at a friends and he bought a Wii.
I played some tenis, boxing and super mario party 8.
It was okay I had fun with the tenis and I still thought I wanted a 360.
But I told him he should buy Zelda: twilight princess and then the next week I saw him he did buy it.
I played it and had a LOT of fun. I've always been a nintendo fan but Microsoft & Sony seem to be advancing much quicker.
Besides the point, a lot of my friends say "yeah, Wii is fun at first but then it gets boring."
I understand why they say that, but every game becomes boring after a while(most, anyway). It's not like theres only 1 game for Wii, if I get bored i'll just buy new games.
I know 360 is a lot of fun, because I've played many games for it and yeah I had a great time... Like, Elder scrolls of oblivion, halo 3, bioshock, gears of war etc...
but after playing Wii it came into consideration that I may want to buy it, but I think I'm still going to get a 360 especially for games that are on their way, like Fable2.
Anyway I was just wondering if anyone has a 360 or Wii(Or both) Which one do you prefer, and why? I enjoyed the Wii because it was much more physical and different then other systems but the xbox has so many good games and even more to come.
Why Ps3 didn't come into my consideration is because the only games on their that are good (so far) is heavenly sword and Ninja gaiden sigma... The only reason WHY I would buy one is because of FF. But I can let go of FF for other games. Almost all of the 360's games are hits(in my opinion)
SO BASICALLY, after all that pretty much usless rant, Wii or 360? And does anyone know what other games will be coming out for Wii?

I get that somewhat with the 360 and PS2 (Halo, FF, Dragon Quest, Gears of War, Jade Empire, and now Mass Effect). But I also want something new. The Wii provides that, not to mention the virtual console which lets me buy old school games (and even some previously unavailable imports) for pennies on the dollar. Considering I grew up with those games, it's a huge draw for me.
Xbox 360 may actually be more economical for you at this point because there is a gigantic backlog of budget games. Don't confuse budget with "bad" games. A lot of really good games get repackaged a year later with a huge price drop, and that's good for "late adopters" like you. Certainly it doesn't hurt to have a huge library of software to choose from as soon as you open the box!
Wii has Super Mario Galaxy, which appears to be a fantastic game. I bought it for my children, along with their own Wii remotes, for Christmas so I won't get to play it for another month yet. T_T Of course there's Zelda. If you like turn based strategy, the Fire Emblem series has already found its way to the Wii as well.
Built in wi-fi makes it easier to get online with your Wii than with the Xbox 360. You must buy a wireless adapter (usually $100) or a pre-programmed pair of wireless communicators ($60) to go online with the 360. However, the Wii does require you to have a wireless access point, while the 360 has the option for a wired connection.
If you have a nintendo DS, the Wii and the DS can communicate without any special setup. They just find each other. Not that there's anything much that's been done to make use of this feature yet, but I imagine it'll be pretty fun when they do.
There's advantages to both, and I am pleased to finally have both sitting on my entertainment center. I could never say which one I love more, because it depends on my mood. ^_^
I will agree strongly with you on one point, though. The PS3 seems like the Edsel of the video game industry. Too big, too powerful, ugly, and overpriced. Good luck with your decision!

I would have gotten the ps3 if it had launched earlier because it has a lot of games that are multi-platform with the 360 but there is free online play and there is ps3 home, which, from what i hear is like second life.
Also it has a web browser, built in bluray (if you dont have a hi-def tv get one, they truly are better)folding@home, which is used to help find a cure for cancer (it only runs when you are connected to the internet, and it is on, but you arent using it) and the ps3 can be turned into a full-linux based computer (it would dual boot, if you dont know what that means look it up). but the ps3 doesn't have some of theearlier games for 360, such as cod2.
compared to cars, the wii would be a VW beetle, the 360 would be an suv, and a ps3 would be a lamborghini.

The console wars know not the bounds of time!
I still think that the SNES is TOTALLY better than the Genesis... Or as I like the call it: the Gene-suck!

Any serious gaming afficionado would concur that the Sega Neptune was and is the only system worth playing. Only an elite few acquired the prototypes for this futuristic system, all of whom now are a society of Illuminati, controlling and manipulating the video game industry worldwide.
