Ok I own a Wii and a PS3. I love them both.

But I see this thread as a trap and a troll thread, or at least it has turned into that. The guy starts a thread about Wii owners that don't own HD consoles and then after a few pages comes back and says see its because of money. Implying that the HD consoles are indeed better and the only reason the Wii is dominating it because of the cost. This kind of back handed slams at the Wii sicken me. There really is no need for this. A lot of gamers just like the Wii games better, get over it.

Again I like the Wii and PS3 = now. I used to love the Wii more but now they both rock my socks. Just understand the Wii has owned the HD consoles this gen and get over it and stop trying to rationalize it already. Ffs just enjoy your chosen console and better luck next gen.

If this was truely not ment as a troll/flame thread the I'm sorry but I don't think I'm mistaken here.

You sure like to exaggerate things.

The main reason why I made this thread was someone already made a thread called "HD owners why havent you bought a Wii" so I wanted to see the what the Wii owners thought about owning a HD console. My main thoughts were of course the games, I was expecting a lot of people saying the games on the Wii is much better, but the majority replied saying it was money that was one of the main problems which surprised me, I wasn't expecting that, also I didn't say "see it's money"? read my post carefully again.

You probably don't know me to well because obviously I do think the HD consoles are better because I don't the like the Wii, I'm sure a lot of people know that here. I was just curious to what the Wii owners thought of the HD consoles, that is all, your blowing everything way out of proportion calling this a troll thread.

If any Wii owners out there are seriously thinking of buying an HD console, the one to buy is the 360. The PS3 is a terrible console, occationally I fall for the hype and buy a game only to be disapointed yet again. I've yet to find a game for the PS3 worthy of the money. I've had no problems finding great games on both the Wii and the 360.




What is so wrong about the HD consoles????

What about them??!!?

...

What about them...?

Seriously there are already so many amazing games on the wii, that's already too much I can afford to play and there aren't a lot I'm interested on the other consoles. The HD twins have many great games but not a lot of very original ones on the contrary of the wii and that's the kind of games I want to play: great and original/fresh ones.

Fair enough. I still don't like you trying to discredit the Wii like that though. And I didn't see as many money issue replies as you say you did, idk.

IMHO and MHO only I beleive that any video game fan that would not love to own all 3 consoles is a bit of a fanboy, maybe inside even if they don't want to admit it to themselves. Oh and btw you said you would "sell" the Wii. Well my friend thats a decision made on money as well. Getting a Wii for free and selling it for $ is the same thing as not wanting to get a HD system because you don't want to spend the money on it. Its either have the money or the console. You spend the money on it or you sell it, it's still a choice of haveing the money or the system. So the real reason you don't own a Wii is because you would rather have the money, right? Probibly to spend on HD games. Well then you know how the Wii owners feel.

Gilgamesh do you really think these people WOULDN'T buy another console if they were rolling in dosh? I guarantee you if we all had enough money every individual who posted in this thread would still get the cash together to purchase a PS3 or an X360. Despite what some may have said. I reckon this would be the case vise versa as well, i believe many PS3/X360 owners would shell out the money for a Wii if they had the chance - if only for games such as Wii Sports Resort and Metroid Prime - even though some of them tend to troll the Nintendo boards.

I myself have a massive list of games to buy and also a log of games i need to play through completely. That's games from the current generation consoles i own and even previous generation games. My wish list does not cover even a quarter of games i vow to purchase eventually. Despite all this though, i'm trying to sort my monthly earnings to see that i can - one day very soon - gather together the cash to purchase a PS3 for the half dozen exclusive games that have tugged my interest, even though there are far more than twice as many games for my current generation consoles that i have yet to buy.

I thought it was all about the games not money. But in my case it's about the games, if someone were to offer me a free Wii with all it's games I wouldn't take it.

(or maybe I would then sell it on ebay...hmmm)

It's pretty obvious what holds the ps3 back. It's a great system.

But I doubt you would really do that with a wii. Monster Hunter Tri, Muramasa, and lots of other games using the snes style controller are exemplary of playstation brand gaming.

SNES style = PlayStation brand?

Was that a funny accident or were you trolling the PlayStation brand for using a SNES controller for all 3 of their consoles?

Well I am a fanboy, I know it, everyone knows it, I'm a Sony fanboy. That's why I only like the PS3, and I don't like the X360 or Wii.

I also said I wouldn't take the Wii all together, I still stand by that. The only reason why I would take it and sell it is because I'm really cheap and just thinking about losing a couple hundred bucks drives me nuts.

Haha, well, I initially meant that they are similar to playstation "core" gaming, and are easy transitions for a playstation user since the control style is the same. However, now that you mention it, I do feel that the SNES true successor was playstation, although N64 did a hell of a job fighting for that title. However, by ps2 and gamecube I feel that it was pretty much a done deal. I guess it was just a funny accident. I've never really thought of any of this before now.

and no, I wasn't trolling sony lol, I guess it was just worded in an ironic way.



@ixis Naugus you make a lot of sense even for a 360 fan (joking) seriously, though there is a misconception that the PS360 are nothing but fragfests, and their is also misconceptions that Wii is just for waving yours arms around. I have both I could tell you that neither is true. its about knowledge, you have to do your research. The HD consoles have Wii beat in various different genres. FPSs, sports, racing, fighting, RPGs, I'll even go so far to say, they have more platforms (360 has a lot of platforms). WII offers the experience that you just cant get on the HDs(until Move and Natal, maybe) I enjoy my PS3 more than my Wii. I have 30+ games for PS3 and about 7 for Wii. My point is if you are an enthusiastic gamer, your not going to limit yourself to a company that only cares about profits. you gotta expand (unless your broke, then sorry about that)



I just picked up a PS3 in Dec and I really like it, but I see it as an in between. My Wii is the social gaming device, my PC is for big, epic, in-depth hardcore and unforgiving games like ArmA 2--but the PS3 serves a great niche for when I just want to play by myself but not get so deep into a game I can't get out for 4-5 hours.

If I had to get rid of 1, it'd be the PS3, but not without a whimper.

I don't own a 360 anymore because they're massive pieces of red ringing shit. I'll never own one again. However, if MS had made their console not a piece of unreliable shit PS3 probably would be in way worse shape than it currently is.

I don't care for either of those two systems overall libraries enough to make a purchase. I also don't see a game on either system that the Wii doesn't have that I absolutely need.

Obviously I am misinformed and don't know enough about what makes games good or something.

misinformed....but mature.

Thanks... I think.

That's more a compliment than many people give me.

I meant misinformed as in "misinformed for thinking that you are being called misinformed". It was a subtle play on words. :P

And you are a great dude. Other people are simply misinformed and don't know enough about what makes a person great.

Oh thanks.  I like you too.

Even if I'm also bitter and unfunny.  LOL

Ok ok this is getting abit weirld lol, whats next "i love you"? lol

guys like us with 5000 posts share a special kind of bond


Yep.  At that point you're either close or can't stand one another.
