Hahaha. Why do I not believe that? It might be the spelling and grammar.

Xbox 360 and PS3 owners can argue until their fingers turn purple (from typing) about which has better games, but that's because it's a really good matchup. Wii just doesn't compete.

Tekken



Mass Effect - Kinda
Too Human - I dunno
GTA4 - At least people i know arent exited for this one
Assasin's Creed - Kinda
Blue Dragon - Not really if you count that then Red steel counts..
Lost Odyssey - Umm.. No
Halo 3 (i personally dislike the series) - I like the Pc Ver but on X-Box it sucks
Ninja Gaiden 2 - No
Unreal 2007 - DO WANT
BiShock - Ok



Metal Gear Solid 4 - Good.
GT 5 - Ok
Army of Two - Hmm..
Crysis - DOES NOT HAVE
Devil May Cry 4 - Eh
Lair - DO NOT WANT (Played demo. Boring to me)
Heaven Sword - Eh
Tekken 6 - Ok
Final Fantasy 13 - We will have the Ps4 before its out.

The wii is definetly not more fun OVERALL. Yes with a group of people, it is awesome, i spent a part of yesterday playing Tennis and it was pretty fun, but when everyone left and it was me by myself, it sucked and i realized how boring and annoying some of the game really was.... The PS3 though is great for single player, and online multiplayer. It also plays BluRay, DVDs, PS2, PS1 games, so there is alot more value to it. You cannot compare the 2 directly since they are COMPLETELY different in ALL aspects. The only linking factor is they play video games, though one is for just video games, and the other is directed towards being a multimedia center....

1 of the main reasons why, is because the PS3 is too big for them. lol

It really is just a matter of choice in games as to which console(s) you buy:

MGS4 excites me above all other next gen titles and the fact my brother was willing to split the cost of the PS3 with me sealed the deal so I now have a PS3 and I am enjoying it greatly. I'm looking forward to Assassins Creed, Haze and WarHawk ATM.

I'm a bit of a Zelda fanboy and TP was fun while it lasted, but I'm really not to hot on any of the other games for the system bar SSBB (I've already played Trauma Center on the DS so I won't be buying it again). In the end, I think the Wii was a bit of an impulse buy for me, but at least it gets a bit of use when I have friends over before we turn on Resistance.

I like the looks of Dead Rising, GoW and Bioshock, but I'm waiting for the 360 to move to a 65nm process as its propensity to overheat and die is just to great at the moment IMHO.

Just because you don't like a particular system or its games doesn't mean you should go round calling all other systems crap. They all have their good points, bad points and target audience. If you're enjoying the Wii (360/PS3/PC) be happy! Most people don't even have one! Just don't try to infect the forum with rampant fanboyism.

2.Two. those games you say are big dont matter to most people. Not even most people (At least i know) Care about GTA anymore.
It DOES have
Resident Evil 4
Metroid Prime 3 : Corruption
Zelda
Manhunt 2
Mortal Combat.
And like Doesns of other more Hardcore games coming..
hmm lets break down your list....
RE 4 is on multiple other consoles and has been out for over 2 years, why would we want to buy it yet again when there is NOTHING new that wasn't included in the PS2 version last year or was it the year before??
Manhunt 2 is also on the PSP, which supposedly is getting more stuff included than the wii version, also How many people are buying a Wii for a Horror type game?? No One
Mortal Kombat is yet another port of a game thats been out awhile and pretty much every other system.....

So out of your list the only things left is Zelda(which i have always loved) and Metroid, so doesn't seem to exciting....I can get GT5, Forza 2, Lair, MGS4, Unreal 2007, Gears of War, and so on for both the Xbox and PS3 and all are alot more exciting to me, and other adults.

Sony just seems to have screwed up (And i also support HD-DVD so that halfway took PS3 off my list)

You dont know who to support. You're just riding on the bandwagon and adjusting your views to whatever direction the wind blows. To prove my point - Why do you support HD-DVD?

Sony has screwed up only in the effect of not having a major game out at launch. There is nothing wrong with the PS3 system wise. PS3 has a bright future with upcoming games...much brighter than the Wii.
