Wii or PS3?

Or Neither?



Wii - weird remote, underpowered, but nice price.

PS3 - all signs point to the PS3 being Sony's "Titanic". Over priced, but the tech is really tempting.

Neither - Put your wallet back in your pocket and step away from the cash register!

That movie had the serious "OMFG it's going to be a massive flop!!!" buzz before it was released. (Or maybe that's what you intended.)

After the guy who you gave your personal info to after he said you "won" a "free" ipod (making you a pod person, but I digress) vacuums out all your accounts you won't have money to buy food, much less a handheld console, and will have to fricassee your daughter's hamster for dinner.

He's too furry!

We'd start with the cats, then move on to the neighborhood squirrels.

If Nintendo releases Brain Age for the Wii ... by lm (2.00 / 0) #7 Wed Oct 11, 2006 at 04:35:40 AM EST
... I might pick it up. Nitendogs might seal the deal as well. But outside of those two games, I don't see any reason to get a new console.

There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.

Yeah, the games seem... weak. by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #9 Wed Oct 11, 2006 at 06:12:27 AM EST
For both platforms. There's nothing there that's grabbing me.

WIPO: All of the above, and also by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #8 Wed Oct 11, 2006 at 05:15:19 AM EST

Xbox 360. Is there a reason it didn't even make the list? You got something against zombie games?

because sony's just not cool anymore.


Heh. After I posted this, I went to talk to my son by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #12 Wed Oct 11, 2006 at 07:34:41 AM EST
who once saved up his allowance at $5 / week for months so he could buy a PS2 the day they were released.

I asked him if he was going to try to pre-order a PS3 and he just wasn't interested. The funky Wii remote has his attention, though.

Nintendo's by garlic (2.00 / 0) #13 Wed Oct 11, 2006 at 08:27:45 AM EST
focus on the gameing instead of on the graphics is interesting. Nintendo trying something new with the controller instead of using the same evolved controller everyone else has is very interesting too.

overall, it's all about the games, not the console. If their isn't a game you want to play, it's not worth it.
