EDIT: I just read Cybermew's post saying "the PS3 will have the best game selection." This makes me laugh.


I personally believe that the PlayStation had the best game selection of the last 2 generations, so it is not only possible, but probable. I'd also like to add that the Wii is innovative and a good system but definitely OVERRATED. It's nice that they decided to keep it affordable though.

And they have yet to make any of there own games. Every one of their games are THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTIONS!!!


Sony have many of their own games actually, and they are cheaper to buy, and tend to be better suited to the PS3 than the ones that are being held back by other consoles.

Name one. I'm sure I can find its 3rd party creator in a second.

And the Wii has it as well. Sony hasn't stolen ideas... Honest. I mean... Look at the Sixaxis system... Copy much?

Oh and there's an edit button. Use it. It's what its there for.


Don't backseat mod again. It's been 5 days since his last post, it's no longer counted as a double post. -FW

Pfft.

So you think that PS3 copied Wii? How typical. The SIXAXIS was showed off just 2 weeks after the Wii remote was, which isn't enough time for them to develop it. Still, I still think the PS3 is the best, better graphics, better processing speed, (will have) better variety, and if you work it out, it is actually cheaper to buy a PS3 and accesories, than it is to buy an XBOX with similar capabilites. And they're both better than Wii in everything apart from price and interactivity.

JUSTICE MONSTER!

Seriously, it's a discussion, not a rave. Don't go blargling about how great stuff is, critisism is essential in a discussion, but don't go accusing and threatening, even if you are a strong fanboy/fangirl/fanpoof.

On another note, I've sort of abused my Wii by not playing it in a while. Need a new game, I've only got Sports and borrowed Zelda & Rayman from 2x4b.

I must admit the PS3 is pretty good, but overrated. As for the Xbox 360? Pretty good. Played Dead Rising yesterday, very gory, and fun :) Some 8 year olds were watching me on it. They're scarred for life.

Yes but it doesn't mean Sony didn't know about it before. It wasn't exactly a close guarded secret. And while the PS3 does have good graphics and processing power doesn't mean it is more unique and as fun as the Wii. Graphics mean nothing, hell I can play a PS1 game and still find it fun without caring about graphics. And about the PS3 and accessories being cheaper than a 360 and accessories... Right. Lets do the maths.

PS3 - £425.99

360 - £279.99

Wii - £179.99

Hmm... Now I may not be an expert at mathematics but it seems that the PS3 is the highest priced...

It would be if they put enough of their team on it, especially since the technology they used for sixaxis has been out years. That fist sixaxis controller was a prototype, and it just used an advanced form of the motion sensor similar to what wario ware twisted uses.

Now, if you add on the extra price for a bigger hardrive, and a HD player, so that the 360 is close to the PS3, what do you get. Oh yeah! more than the PS3.

So would you class Pokemon as a first party game?

Pah! I am leaving this thread. A forum is to discuss, not argue.

Best selling console of generation 5 - Playstation
Best selling console of generation 6 - Playstation 2
Best selling console of generation 7 - (Anyone see a pattern)

Ok so it's had the least release time, so obviously it will have less sales. But I believe in 2 years time if you compare the first 2 years of sales, the Playstation 3 will be the victor.

It has everything the Xbox 360 has which lets face it, is the only the real contender and more. If you want the best pay the rest. I worked hard for months solid for my PS3 and I am proud of my purchase.

I could go on and on and on. But alas i'm bias and a Sony fan boy.

the wii is okay but your arms get tired and the graphics arent as good as the 360 and ps3

Okay it's official. The Wii rocks. I'm using the internet channel to post this message. Can the 360 do this? I think not. It does take ages to type though.

Have you even been on a PS3? Most people obviously don't agree with you, as the PS3 broke sale records of any console here in the UK.

When any other consoles were released, there were only a few good games, and there are thousands of better stuff you can do with the PS3.

What does the Wii do that's new? Ooh, scary motion mote thingy.

Oh, really? Maybe in the UK (And I don't know!), but in the US, you multiply number of PS3's sold by 5, and you get the number of Wii's sold! Also, I don't have a Wii, so I don't know what they can do, but what can a PS3 do that's new! Ha, counter strike!

PS3? Big whoop!

I have to agree with Inferno on this one. While I don't really like the PS3 there isn't anything wrong with it. I'd advise you to actually play on the console and form an educated opinion before spouting unfound hate and stupidity.

I've played on the PS3 within the last month and while the graphics are fantastic and some aspects are rather clever I just don't find it as fun as the Wii or 360 but then again I've never really liked Playstation. I hardly play my PS2 anymore and I sold my PSP last month. But to be honest it doesn't matter which console is the best... Gaming is fantastic no matter what platform it is played on ;)

Yep, agree with you completely, apart from I obviously think that the PS3 is the best. Except, I haven't been on a Wii, so I can't comment on that really.

Hey, sorry if I did, but I don't think I said I hate the PS3. There's nothing wrong with it. I just prefer the Wii. I was being so cruel to the PS3
because Infernape was basically saying that the Wii was fungus growing in between my toes! (Mmm... Fungus...) He dosen't need to like the Wii, and I don't need to like the PS3!

However, I find Nintendo games more enjoyable than any other game (Zelda, Pokemon, Kirby), and you can't get them on the PS3!

I have to go with the Wii because it is different. Gaming companies have been trying to get the remotes to work like that for ages. You can even play some classick games by getting them of the internet. Who doesn't love the classick Mario games? The PS3 has revolutionary graphics and detail, but there is nothing new. I know you can get on the internet, but that's already out there. The Xbox 360 is like a store brand PS3. I'm not throwing the PS3 and Xbox 360 in the dirt, but the Wii does. :)

I'm not sure that makes sense. By saying something is revolutionary, you are saying that it is a new and exciting concept.

I'm not going to say it has good graphics because then someone will say they're better than good. To correct myself, the PS3 has (add in a describing word here like, super or good) graphics, but so does the Wii and Xbox 360. Good graphics are not anything new. :)

Revolutionary-radically new or innovative; outside or beyond established procedure, principles, etc.
