I picked up a hacked Xbox on Craigslist that had emulators for all the older games (Atari, Intellivision, Colecovision, NES, SNES, N64, Genesis, Saturn, Gameboy, PS1, Commodore 64...maybe some others, too) and a bunch of games loaded. I have a Wii and a Xbox 360 and still find myself playing the older games 90% of the time.

It's funny how low-tech those older games were. I think the whole Atari 2600 catalog (including the 3rd party stuff, like Activision) is less than 1 megabyte (maybe an exaggeration, but you know what I mean).

Herzog Zwei on Genesis is still the best game I ever played. Go, go retro!

The PS3. That being said, I mostly use it for Blu-ray playback.

The PS3 ...it seems to have more potential and a brighter future than the XBOX ...although that might change with Microsofts NATAL technology.

I had the Wii, I hated that little system. It's fun, specially for parties or when others visit, but I'm big on graphics, and just couldn't stand the Wii's non-HD graphics.

Blu-ray goes a long way, but I really like some of the announcements Microsoft made at E3. Even little things like Facebook and Last.fm should make the 360 more enjoyable.

The Wii is fun for parties and stuff, but I like kicking back with the Xbox 360 for serious gaming. Playing some of those Wii games can also be tiring. I also happen to love the controller for the Xbox 360. It feels great in my hands.

I was given a PS3 this past Christmas. It is a great console although I don't have any experience with any others. My daughter likes having Netflix streaming through it and so its hard to get on it to play a game when I want to.
