Default anyone here have a Wii?

My GF likes them. I just picked up one saturday, store actually had some.

I would have liked a 360 but I figured most of the games I want on the 360 are coming to pc (Gears of War (with extra levels), all the Halo games). Gives me an excuses to upgrade my pc and donate free parts to my sisters PC. Plus star craft II comes out next year

Anyone else have a Wii?

I have one, and I regret buying it because the current games are awful. I DO recommend getting excitetruck though. One of the best racing games I've played, simply addicting and fun.

I don't have one

I'm still amazed they're not in stock ANYWHERE though.

I have a 360 and I turn it on about every 4-6 months

Bought it for Halo3, which they said would come out right after the initial launch. Still got like 4 months before its out. At my old house, I also used it as a media center extender. I also like the fact that the controllers work through the wall, so I can keep it in the closet.

I did play the Halo3 Beta they released, a little.

I got one about a month ago and must say it is a blast. If you are looking for a shooting game go with resident evil 4. While it is not a FPS it is the most refined shooting game out on the wii so far. RE4 and Zelda are the only 2 must own titles out at the moment. Other then that the rest of the games are more for lots of people to play.

Personally, I would like to get an Xbox 360, but they are still too much $$$$. I played a game at my nephews house called Crackdown or something like that. I loved it.

BTW, this is freaking funny....

Part 2-not as good as Part 1

Right now as it stands 360 is the best system to have. I've got a 360, a Wii and plan on a PS3 since they now have a 100 dollar price drop.

360 games, Forza 2, Gears, Halo 3 (I had the beta..was awesome) Lost Odessy, Mass Effect is coming, so is Call of Duty (will be cross platform though). Unreal 3, Army of Two, Devil May Cry.


For the Wii, the games pretty much suck. They don't really have any replay value...or much value after the first hour of novelty. I played Zelda...it's ok, in talking to a lot of people many people prefered Zelda on the Game Cube because the controls were better..and it looked just as good. Controls aside there was nothing "Next Gen" about the Zelda Game. Red Steel not worth it, Super Paper Mario is ok but pretty silly. Resident Evil should be Cross platform..I haven't looked. The Wii actually has the most exclusive games at 113 out or in production, versus the 360's 95 and PS3's 47. But...they all suck. 360's numbers are only higher because it's been out for about twice as long.

The PS3 I feel hasn't come to it's own. It doesn't have any Final Fantasy games exposed yet. Right now the only thing to get excited about is Metal Gear Solid...which looks amazing, Heavenly Sword..which is a must, and Kill Zone 2 which IMO Graphically looks better than Halo 3.

The games that will absolutely sell the most for 360 is Halo 3, NFL 2008, and GTA. everything after Halo 3 can trip and DIAF.

Forza 2 + the wheel is worth buying an xbox 360 for. It's that good.

I had a wii, the games sucked so bad that I didn't want to buy any of them. So I installed a wiikey modchip so I could d/l the games, but even that after a couple weeks got boring. The only game I enjoyed was zelda, but I've always enjoyed the zelda games. I sold the Wii w/ chip and zelda for $300 over the weekend.

I bought a refurb x360 premium for $250 on ebay and am now happily enjoying forza 2 on xbox live, and recently rented the darkness and it is pretty fun too.

The PS3 is being underutilized. The platform is too new and hard to program for. Please believe me from a technical standpoint the PS3 will be far superior to the XB360 once the programmers begin to use the 7 cores to their fullest.

I have a Wii, and a 360
Excite truck is awesome, and warioware is fun to play when drinking. Overall its a good console when alcohol is involved.

I want an Xbox but like I said all the games I want for it will eventually come out for the PC. Most of the other games I could care less for on the 360.

I'm already talking with my buddy to plan my upgrade path for my pc. I WANT GEARS OF WAR for my PC as well as having it ready for when Halo 3 comes out. Halo 2 just came out and I have halo 1 already for my pc. Plus like i Said I am getting STarCraftII for the PC.
