Forums - Gaming Discussion - Wii60 or PSWii?

Wii360. I have all three, but the 360 offers a much better gaming lineup right now than the PS3, an organized online experience

He doesnt seem to be willing to pay for that online experience

Another few other drawbacks to the PS3 is the insane install times and the lack of upconversion over component cables. With the 360, you download the demos and downloadable content and go. With the PS3, you have to install that crap - and it takes up hard drive space. As far as the lack of upconversion - it does upconvert SDVDs over HDMI, but not over component. That bites.

I agree, I had a friend come over with Ninja gaiden sigma one time and the install time was crazy long(it is optional though). though installing demos isnt that bad. A 1 gb demo could be installed somewhere around 2 mins.

All that said, you won't be unhappy either way, but the 360 consistently outperforms the PS3 hands down. Yes, developers are starting to figure it out, and it will likely win big in this generation, but the machine is no PS2 and I don't dig buying into potential one bit.

I had a Wii360 setup for a long time until I found a PS3 with full BC. Now, I still find myself playing the Wii360 more than the PS3. It's a good machine, but I fail to see the awesomeness with the PS3 right now (I have Resistance, Motorstorm and a few other titles, btw).

the 360 doesnt consistently outperform the ps3.
Oblivion? COD4? Burnout? DMC4?

I've owned both a ps3 and a 360 since their respective launches---camped out freezing all night for both! (and met some really cool people in the process!)

I like both consoles too (and you'd probably be happy with both)....but if I had to pick one...I'd pick the ps3.

3 main reasons---

1. Blu-ray is gorgeous & the ps3 upscales normal DVD's
2. PS3 doesn't have RRoD
3. I like the exclusives for the ps3 better than the exclusives for the 360 (I'd die w/o FF) and that is PURE PERSONAL PREFERENCE--obviously, many feel differently.

Eitherway, maybe you should wait until GDC is over and make sure nobody has anything happen to make you regret an early decision. (like a Shadow of the Colossus or Halo 4 announcement) Just a thought.

These threads are pointless - you've clearly already made up your mind.

You're asking one of us to act like we're on the MS payroll and list all of the 360's selling features off the back of the box verbatim??

You're on a videogame forum (having posted 2000 times) and want to play ignorant as if you don't know what each console offers? Clearly there's nothing anyone can say to convert you, because you already know everything.

Please show me where it says in my post "please list all of the 360's selling features off the back of the box verbatim."

Clearly, I haven't already made up my mind.  I've already changed my mind once, and I want to be sure of my reasoning.  One good way to do that is to see what other people with different experiences from my own have to say about it.  I wouldn't be asking for advice if I had already made up my mind.

I don't pretend to know everything, and the 360 is actually the console that I know the least about from this generation.  So how about we step off of the jump to conclusions mat and have a discussion about it?

ROFLZ!!

Pick whichever your friends have more of. The only reason why I got a 360 instead of a ps3 was because everyone has a 360 and I wouldn't want to be the odd ball.

Ok I concede I might have...as you so elequantely put it 'jumped to conclusions' there - but you sounding giddy about the prospect of programming for the cell pretty much sold me. 

In all seriousness, would a handful of biased favourable reviews on the 360 really sway you to change your mind? These threads are about as helpful as appearing on Jerry Springer to solve your problems...

I make it no mystery that I prefer the 360, but I despise sounding like a fanboy and I'm not some free marketing personnel for MS, so I'll just leave it at I prefer the games so far.



Which games? 360 games are not something I'm well-versed in. It should be noted that there aren't that many PS3 games that have caught my fancy yet, either.

go with PSwii and eventually go PSwii60

Agreed, i'd get a PSWii (Well, that's what i got ^^)
