I would almost like to see Apple buy Nintendo one day. The war would really be on then.

It's a dead heat. Shocked

I'm not really a gamer, but I would have thought the PS3 would have a commanding lead.

The PS3 has another effect that the Wii doesn't have. Even though everyone is not going to do this... but to 100% completely enjoy the PS3, you are going to have to buy or already have an HDTV. To get the full experience isn't just $600 +games +controllers +cables maybe, but other expensive equipment.
Yet with a Wii.. you can enjoy it on that 19-incher you have in your bedroom.

I could be wrong, but doesn't the Wii have HDMI? Heading over to Nintendo.

Edit: Looks like I was wrong. Laughing

It would be nice if they did. Though if you want even component cables... you have to buy them from Nintendo.com. Unless you want to buy generics a week or two after launch.

I like the Nintendo Wii the best. I like its games, and it's at a fairly decent price. The PS3, though, I have heared from Google News, is going to be about $600.00 US. I would definately not like to pay that much for a console gaming system.

Things could get exciting if game developers really utilize the Wii's controller. In general, console gaming seems so played out and badly in need of something fresh and new.

There is a $500 version. It has no built-in wifi, no card reader and a smaller hard drive. All models still come with HDMI though.

The funny thing is... if the Xbox 360 was there... (there is a topic that has the 360 as a poll option) it just wouldn't get any votes, mostly because it's Microsoft Laughing Laughing Laughing

i think the wii will be awesome no problems at launch keeping the nintendo carma...but with the ps3 you need to get the expensive version to get a good one because with the cheaper one they downgrade the internals which wont have as good game experience

The internals are the same, sans WiFi, card reader and a smaller hard drive. Otherwise it is the exact same. They even have the slimline PS2 complete chipset inside, this is only for backwards compatibility.

Micosoft should be happy they released the 360 last year. I don't think it will do as well once the PS3 and Wii are out.

By the way... Wii is the lead! Very Happy

I might get a Wii, but only if I play it at Bestbuy or something first. Otherwise, neither. I personally feel the 360's just as good as the PS3 (even though the PS3's technically better, but only by a bit) so I'll just pick one of those up. Yay for $499 Smile
