lol, I was playing the PS3 the other day at a Target, and when I was finished with my playtime(I was playing Madden '07) and went to the Wii lineup(which was MUCH longer btw) some kid broke the controller in half!
I found Madden to be fairly solid on PS3, though the Control scheme in no way compares to the Wii. You have to move you grip too much on the PS3 controller(just as I predicted) and it ruined immersion for me, despite the pretty graphics. I was more immersed in the Wii Madden version right from the start.

Gears of War... not much of a fan of that game. It just seems to be more of the same. The games that I'm waiting for with Baited breath for the 360 is Mass Effect, Assassins Creed, and GTA 4. I hope the bring the GTA 3 Trilogy to the Wii. I want to see how Rockstar adapts to the Wiimote.

Well I'm looking forward to getting my Wii at Christmas.

I'm not even going to touch a PS3, it's too expensive, won't come out for ages and there was only a few games on the PS2 that I liked.

Wii will be the overall winner this Chrimbo, the 360 has sold enough already, the PS3 is too pricy and in short supply, but the Wii is cheap and plentiful.

I think I'll stick with the Wii and my 360.

yeah, same here. i wanted to get a wii on launch day, but i decided to wait. i want to get other peoples impressions of it first. i really don't like reading 'pro' reviews when compared to the review of the typical consumer/gamer, so yeah. i'll hear what others have to say about it first (likes, dislikes, user experience) before i decide to get one. i'm also waiting for the wii to have online play, but that's not coming until sometime in early '07. even though i'd really like to get my grubby hands on Zelda, there really aren't much other launch games for the wii that i want, and between my ds lite, ps2, and (hopefully) upcoming fan translation of Earthbound 2/Mother 3, there's plenty to keep me company

Why bother? GTA 4 isn't PS3 exclusive. Infact the 360 version is getting Exclusive after-release content and PS3 is not.

OR

You could wait a year and get the superior PC version.

Yes. Yes, you can. Because I'm 100% sure it makes everyone, as you so elegantly put it, moist.

what do i think about the wii? 266 dollars well spent. wii sports is crazy fun, played wii bowling till 3:30 last nite. my best game was a 198, i rule!

twilight princess is beautiful. the graphics are very pleasing , the music is classic zelda, and it just looks awesome. if a person can only play with ps3 or xbox 360 graphics, they are very closed minded. twilight princess just looks sweet, and i cant wait to become lost in the story. what sucks is im only going to play when my daughter is around cuz she loves zelda and the stories. we are going to start the adventure today. ill write more later but its my kids swimming party for her 6th birthday in 30 min.

cant wait for it to get over so we can play wii! if anyone else got a wii today, enjoy . its totally worth the money and its potential is unseen yet. i love the wii mote. it just feels right.

peace

i got home with my Wii this morning around 10am... been playing it quite a bit.

Wii Sports is shockingly awesome. i didn't expect this game to suck up so much of my time.

I also grabbed Zelda, and so far it's really rad, but i've barely started it. Been too busy w/ Wii Sports

I've had my 360 for almost a year, and I am more than content with it. EA has done an amazing job on their latest installment of NHL hockey. NHL 07 is absolutely phenominal. The joystick controls make for a completely different experience. If you can imagine a move, you can do it. No button for shoot, pass, etc., everything is controlled with the two joysticks. It took a few games to get the hang of it, but when you master it, it is absolutely ridiculous the moves you can pull off.

I'm looking to give Call of Duty 3 a go when I get a chance, absolutely loved 2. For the first time ever, I actually felt like I was in the game. It felt like I was on the beaches of Normandy in this game. So I would be surprised if 3 was anything less than spectacular.

I wouldn't mind giving the Wii a go. The controller has peaked my curiosity and has me wanting to give it a go. The PS3 is not something I am in high demand for. When I get the opportunity to give it a go, I would not pass it up. But I'm not going to be making much of an effort for it.

But I have to say, if you are any sort of hockey fan at all, you need to give NHL 07 a chance on the 360. It's not the same if your not playing it on a next generation platform.

in my opinion the wiimote and nunchuck make twilight princess the most enjoyable zelda to ever control. it seems more natural, and alot of quirks that can happen on an old controller are obsolete. aiming with the wii mote is 100 times better then aiming with the analog controller. i cant wait for my big first battle on horseback. something u couldnt have on ocarina or majoras mask because there was no wii mote.

I got the 360 a little over a week ago.

I like it, I LOVE the media extender thing...since I remember back when I got my first xbox and I had to manually put all my songs onto it....that was a pain in the arse. Live Arcade is fun, loads of good classics and even some fun new ones like Small Arms (I think its new...new to me anyway).

The User Interface has to be one of the best interfaces I have ever used, its very well done.

yesterday was the first time I played on xbox live...since that its most hyped up feature I was expecting it so be very smoothly done...i was wrong. I have a 768kb cable internet...but I swear my service provided keeps on screwing me over, it seems like a never get the proper bandwidth.
and I think that was my problem with Live...its was fun and all, but every here & there it did a little stutter...which was a little annoying, but the part that was the worst was that headset...again I think this was a bandwidth issue, the other guys voice kept cutting in and out...I asked hit if my voice sounded the same...he said no, so he must have had a faster internet connection.
So I guess my gripes aren’t really blamed at MS...but by $hity service provider.

Over all I recommend the 360...it really is a great gaming machine.
the 1 gig demos take around 2-3 hours...which is longer then I would like...but once again...this is probably the fault of my damn ISP.
