Get over the damn Graphics! I have all three consoles XBox360, PS3 and Wii. Since I finally got the Wii three weeks ago I have not touch the ps3 or xbox. Reason, I got tired of playing alone or with one friend. Wii is so much more fun that my friends are always over my apt. Especially girls. After the graphics Xbox and PS3 have absolutely no fun to offer!!! Go Wii!!

joe82, I completely agree with you. I've played Xbox 360, and after the initial wow of the graphics wore off, I found many 360 games to be incredibly boring. There all the same games we played on PS2, just with better graphics. BORING!

I do have to give credit to Xbox Live Arcade. Being able to download "retro-style" arcade games is one of the more impressive things about the 360. I hope Nintendo uses their Virtual Console to offer arcade-style games for the Wii.

I personally find the Wii's visuals to hinder my enjoyment of the gameplay. Especially since it's not even crisp HD resolution.

Just because it recreate these advanced shaders does not mean they can run in real time with good framerates.

Nintendo will always be on the map, I haven't even played the wii yet. I have an xbox360 and i got no regret on buying i would say it's the best system out there.

wow, i have never expected to see trash like this about the wii, why do they only care about graphics? hey everyone, if you want a graphics machine, dont but anything, just look outside. REAL LIFE is the best graphics you can get. video game systems are meant for fun and enjoyment. calling the wii gamecube 1.5 is like saying the only difference the wii offers is better graphics, which is total bull****

Talk about the Fan boys forum...god! My opinion of all this is that 1) Nintendo has always slouched a little when it comes to hardware on their systems( I.E. Gamecube wii) but in no way does it mean these systems suck or do not have a chance( Except for Cube, it is kinda on the way out). I have played around with a wii, and it was fun but honestly I prefer( Call me idiotic or whatever) Better graphics performance. 2) The PS3 is just a pile of expensive crap( This is my personel opinion). 3) THe Xbox360 is the best system out. (Again in my opinion) and the fact that people think the games on their are boring. I am not sure what you mean. Yes every console has those few games that just suck so BADLY that you never want to play them again. but how is Gears of War a boring game?

Ok that is my rant but I have to say this, the wii is a great system but for gods sake it has almost no chance against anything else when it comes to graphics, or games even, nothing yet has come out to draw anyone to it( aside from Twilight princess). The wii is a victim of sircumstance, it is having some supply issues, nintendo has not realesed anything for it(yet) that is even remotly worth $250.00 to play it( if you do not own the wii yet). The fact of the matter is this nation ( it can be good or bad how ever you see it) is addicted to action games, shooting runing, jumping peoples heads being turned to paste that sort of thing. Call me a sinic but I will not buy a wii untill one game comes out that is actually worth my time( I.E. no 2d fish, no *bleep*ed boxing and no Zelda). One last point has no one noticed that almost everygame out their has HD resolution? it is becoming standerd and a *Next Generation* system that does not support that( or has no games that use it yet) is not going to score well on the world scene, nintendo will always be aroun but not for anyone who likes a fun game and good visuals.

Ya right the wii can do what a PS3 or a 360 can ( almost lol ), to me games make a console succesful, I particulary don't care what other said when it comes to likes ( I got my own likes,so I chose what games I want to play ).From what I have seen out for Wii ( and not only that , what I have seen that is comming too ) doesn't appeal my likes at all, but when I see games like Halo 3-Lost Odyssey-Too Human-Lair-Metal Gear 4-RE5, some on 360 some on PS3 or both, that's what I like ( that's what I am looking for ) not party games using the gimmick mote ( I know not all wii games are like that but a great part of it ) that's why I would never buy a wii.
Despite that I don't really care what happens with wii or wii games.

I have been thinking about getting a 360 latley, but I decided I don;t want one. I'm happy enough with my Wii and don't need any other new game systems.

Screw Sony, I got me some Ds and Wii action!

I know this is a somewhat old article, but I just wanted to say this: Why do we have to bash other consoles like this. I know that we like to choose, a favorite, and say we are right in our choice, but in a situation like this the competition doesn't hurt.

If Sony hadn't adopted the disk format with the PS1 games wouldn't be as big as they are now. If Nintendo didn't come on to the scene and start making video games we may not be playing video games, or even games of the quality we have now. If Microsoft didn't come into the market last generation, and make X360 then Sony wouldn't have had as much pressure to make as powerful of a console as the PS3 is. If MS didn't give as much popularity to shooter games, we probably would have seen worse shooters, and also less shooter games. Also MS, and Sony both pushed eachother to make their online gaming experinces way better. If Nintendo didn't make the wiimote, Miis, and Virtual console, PS3 wouldn't have in respective order Sixais, home, or the old game downloadables. Also because of MS and Sony, Nintendo is starting to do more with online gameplay.

See competition makes everyone better, and benifits all.

Yes but why brong a knife to a gun fight? That is what Nintendo did, they made a system that will never be able to support the kind of graphics people are coming to expect. Nintendo made a grea tsystem, with almost no potential to support any of the big titles gamers are clammering for.
