For Christmas I gotta decide on the 2

I LOVE Graphics, and i love games like Tom Clancy and Far Cry.

I really like the idea of the Wii..the controller and stuff..seems really innovative and cool..however I love graphics...and i heard its no where near Xbox 360 Graphics
I dont play mario games.....only shooting mostly and RPG.

the PS3 im not getting..its wayy to expensive and i dont want one

Basically i love Gameplay and Graphics.....but i really want something with good graphics....if it doesnt have graphics anywhere near PC i dont want it ( since i prob wont be gaming on pc much one i get one)

So what would u guys get?

I think the 360 would cater better to shooter games.

From what I have seen, the Wii graphics are much less then amazing. It is not a next-get consol, graphics-wise. The Xbox 360, on the other hand, has amazing graphics. If you have an HD-TV, it will look as good if not better then your computer

360FTW cause you can connect it to a computer monitor and it has great graphics and the FPS and RPG's are great on it.

I say the Wii, while the Xbox360 is nice and has really nice graphics i think the Wii will just plain be more fun. Due to its unique controller it just screams to have shooters on it, And while it cant realistically render some sport players obcense tattoo on his ankle the graphics are still very good, It is 2-4 times more powerful than the GC, now think of that in terms of the best looking game the GC had RE4. I think the graphics will hold there own.
