This is bullshit. That machine has so many problems with it..... I lost all respect for IGN. http://bestof.ign.com/2006/gear/1.html
I find this normal .The machine ,price aside ,is clearly the best one out there and has an astounding potential .
I can tell you're a Wii fanboy from your username. I have one and have had NO problems with it whatsoever. The Wii's controller is all a gimmic. At least the PS3 can be labeled as an impressive piece of hardware.
The hardware is impressive, but I can't see how they can award best console of the year to a system with such an anemic library. And even if the wii is gimmicky its library is better at this time. Games make consoles, not hardware

"Why do they call it the xbox 360? Because when you see it, you'll turn 360 degrees and walk away"
Reminds me of 12 years ago when EGM said Sega Genesis was the best console over the SNES and the Sega Game Gear was the best handheld over the Gameboy. One year later, they reversed their decision on both.
"Too many powerful consoles can't coexist. It's like having only ferocious dinosaurs. They might fight and hasten their own extinction." -Shigeru Miyamoto 72 million years ago the prize "Best New Organism" was awarded to Tyrannosaurus Rex. It was as big as a house, had teeth like daggers and roared like 1000x lion. "Truly a magnificent beast", said the judges. "This has the potential of coming the ultimate tuff guy of organisms". But then a mammal, size of an average Sony CFD-ZW755 Portable Boombox, came and stole Rex's eggs and went to a hole underground to have an orgy with the lady-mammals. Oh the feasting and fucking. Moral of the story: chest hairs attract women.
Thats true Chris but the bottom line is the 360 has the best titles right now. A console is useless without games. The best console is the one with the best games. The X-box and Gamecube were better consoles than the PS2 from a technical standpoint. That said, the PS2 was the best console because it had the best variety of games.
