    360 has so many features for online. You do have to pay a small monthly fee for it, but you get what you pay for. I wouldnt even consider the wii to have online with the service offers (its laughable) not to mention there isnt a good game library to handle games online. Hands down the 360 wins in 99% of the departments in my head. Ps3 has an alright library but not too many exclusives, and the online is meh.

    sounds good, might have to grab one for myself.

    Is the wii any better online nowadays? Or is it just fun with ur mates offline...


    Are the ps3 games much better quality though i mean with a nice setup etc???

    from what i hear, the ps3 online experience sucks compared to xbox live.

    ps3 = free but you need to pay for xbox live. which shows why xbox live has a better edge.

    but ps3 does have better graphics. check out uncharted 2.

    might just chip my wii and get a shed load of fun games....

    Ive had an xbox 360 and i hated it. Pure hate. As im an ex pc gamer for like 7 years i find it very hard to adjust to controller styled games you know and the xbox is vile ;(

    Even with a chip, the wii isnt fun. I must tell you, I got a wii day one and modded it a week later (you can mod your wii without a chip now if you didnt know) I have practically every game made, right now my wii is collecting dust in the corner of my room. Give the 360 another chance, play some of the more popular games on live, it will grow on you and you'll expand to loving a bunch of stuff about it. Just gotta get back in the mindset of a controller! :D

    You can't chip a ps3 yet but you can do it to an xbox 360, it isn't too hard to flash it which involves no wiring and can be done yourself easily. I find it hard to comprehend why they have xbox live fees, that pretty much was the reason I got a ps3.

    zonfar i know mate. Do you mean the Zelda Twilight one ;)

    Thing is, i enjoy playing sports games with all my mates, beers flowing and letting everyone get on it. Not so serious etc etc. I dont think the wii is meant to be played alone tbh!

    You dont even need a chip, I have 4 360s all dvd flashed, no chips or anything. Also from what ive read/heard the ps3's online isnt worth it (even though its free haha) from not being able to easily jump in with a friend, join a party of a bunch of people and easily switch games/rooms/whatever leaderboard stuff, etc.

    and yea graphicnut I mean the twilight one ;) if your into sports games (im not) I still say go 360, cause of all the online. My friend is a nut, he got so mad at someone online on madden or nba I forget, but he was sitting there screaming at him then eventually threw his controller to the wall. He got into it a little bit to much.. So maybe 360 inst a good idea :p hahaha oh yeah, he actually broke his friends nba disk while they were playing offline cause he thinks he is the only one who is allowed to win :eek:

    It seems you may be too nerdy for console games. Controllers are your friend. They were designed for optimum performance. Xbox 360 is my console of choice, but some like the gaystation 3. A Wii is fun when people are over though, no denying that.

    Ps3 for sure if you are looking for a home media player, simply because of the non-gaming features.

    If you are looking for online play I'd go with the 360, more people have mics and the quality is still great. I would recommend the elite version though, the regular ones tend to break.

    pc online 100 times better?! LIES! im not saying that just because I hate pc games either :p

    Tsktsktsk.. I used to look up up you *********.... just kidding your still awesome, but I will have to dissect your post because im a junkie like that.

    1. Ps3 and 360 have almost the same graphics for all games that are non-exclusive
    2. I just download HD movies and stream or burn to disk or whatever (not that this has anything to do with gaming)
    3. web browser = I have computers for that, or a wii that I never turn on
    4. I have a 20gigs hard drive and theres nothing that goes on it, so I have space to spare. (game saves are in the kb range)
    5. What system doesn't have wireless controllers now? haha
    6. I'm not sure because I havent kept to date, but last time I checked ps3 was far far below both systems. It makes me mad that the wii stands on top, it truly doesn't deserve the title :(
