    I agree, but we will need more votes to see which console is best.So if you haven't voted, vote now.We will hopefully get an interesting result.

    The problem is everyone is burned out on console threads. They happen every week or 2, and are all very similar. Then when you come in to one and see spelling that is either intentionally done wrong, or written by a 7 year old it is disheartening and discourages further participation in the thread or its poll.

    Frankly, I'm suprised it has 9 votes so far.

    Lolz...can we ramble on techically?

    Im just a hardware freak....computers and cars prove hardware power.

    But yea i do my research and it predicts that all 3 systems will have their success....including computers which is not mentioned...possible to add another option poll for PC?

    just a thought

    You can`t add another poll option.

    Only admins/mods can do that.

    Since this thread was clearly intended to discuss the merits or otherwise of the 3 main consoles, I don`t see any need for a poll edit.

    wii anyone?

    why hasnt anybody brough wii into the discussion?

    its true, the wii is not much of a stepup from gamecube (Graphically), but at least Nintendo experiments around with different playability to get more people that arent gamers wanting to play it, instead of the traditonal Nintendo Nerds hooked on Mario and Zelda.

    I have a wii and the idea is quite revolutionary, and some of the games are outright fun as hell, even though a lot of its games arent as cracked up as they seem to be. The potential is there at least.

    My friend has Xbox360 and i gotta say the games for it are really good, especially the Halo series, even though i hate the Xbox controls. They made this crazy ping pong game for it with amazing graphics and gameplay, and they made it for the wii too but the comparison didnt measure up since the graphics went way down and they changed the controls from pushing a button to swinging ur arm. Not nearly as realistic as I thought it would be.

    But wait until they make that Free movement Star Wars Game for the Wii. That will be amazing...hopefully.

    In conclusion, I find the most satisfying gaming for the PC (if you have a good system). thats my opinion

    Thanks nissan..i think pc should be added IMO

    but IDK about the Wii its not as versatile as the PS3 or 360

    When i have the money ima own all 3 and a gaming PC...thats the only real way 2 go

    Thats why i asked if i could add another option but only mods are allowed to do that so i guess we can't.Anyway this is about consoles.

    what is Elite?



    and if your talking about console comparisons, id say xbox360 is overall the best. The Wii console is a completely different gaming experience, because it is so unlike any other console. Its like comparing Lasertag to Gameboy. Both are fun in their own different ways, like the xbox and the wii.

    But id still vote for xbox jsut cuz they make really good games.

    I got to say the wii is better. Its just more fun. My brother-in-law owns one and we play every time I see him. My niece who is 4 yrs old can beat us all at the bowling on that thing. I don't like xbox because of its controls. They are to big. I can't say they don't make good games though. I did play a wrestling game for it that was awesome. The PS3 is just to darn expensive. I am not going to pay $500 for just a gaming console. Sure it can play movies but if I am going to spend that much I would be upgrading my PC.

    Well the Ps3 is more than just worth its price

    Elite=the XBOX 360 Elite FYI, I will own one soon. I cant say much about the Wii because I dont own one and will not buy one. All three consoles have their audiance that they are appealing to.

    Im'a PS fan..and the Poll shows that most people believe in sony even though their marketing strategy seems to not be working all that well.

    I guess there are quite a bit of Sony fans here eh?
    Mmm....the xbox is creeping up to victory,with the wii right behind and the ps3 approaching the bend.Will the xbox pass, or will the wii knock it out of it's way and start tailgating the ps3 until the next bend...

    That`s three consecutive posts you`ve made in this thread, without any response. Could it be, members just really aren`t that interested. :p

    I think it is just that it is too early to tell which console is going to prevail...by 2009-2010 u should know.

    I finally got my Elite...now i need some games...and 360 ppl got any suggestions?

    careful it might overheat and break, now that wouldn't be good would it, 'RRoD'

    *Pats PS3 that hasn't shown a sign of breaking and never will*

    :D:D

    Sinnce u mentioned that...I have my PS3 and 360 in my entertainment stand...it is enclosed so i would say there is about 2 feet in the back for air flow space and if im lucky mayb 2 feet on the right side...while playing my PS3 my Fan way loud like a jet lol and I got me worried cuz it got awful warm in that area...Now should I buy like a system stacker and have them both out in the open rather than inside an Tv stand??? it is similar to this stand but i have a 30'inch Samsung 1080I HDTV http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7632706&type=product&id=1130986714617

    uhhhh yeah... it would be a lot better to have it out in the open rather than enclosed,

    it's not going to over heat to the point of breaking though, the ps3 has a cut off zone, if it gets too hot it gives you a warning that its about to shut down then i think after a minute or so it shuts down then it doesnt turn back on untill it's cool enough inside it.
