wii or xbox 360? - Page 2

The Wii is like an X-BOX (it has the same specs roughlly)

If your computer monitor can display HDTV then you can use the 360. The WII will die because many games us shoot em up men like are terrible on the WII (try playing call of duty)

FPSers shouldn't be playing on consoles anyway, save for Halo and maybe Socom/a couple others.


PC > Console for FPS.

One of my friends has a Wii, and we all go over and play it and have hours of fun. Nintendo's consoles are EXCELLENT party games. I say Wii, though I'd choose the 360 for myself.

You just don't get them in the high resolution, that's all.

That said, it sounds to me like the Wii is more in your target zone. Younger siblings + girlfriend = Wii, it doesn't take a genius to do that math. You're right on target that the Wii will be better suited for the "whole gang" (and it's awesome that you're thinking of them, by the way).



God, I hate people that say crap like this. It is so untrue. I've been playing virtually nothing but my Wii for months now...and solo, by the way. The other often recited piece of crap by poser "gamers" is that the Wii is only fun in groups. Utter load of stinky bullcrap.
After I beat Twilight Princess I never bothered playing my Wii again, so I sold it to a friend and might pick another one up when more games come out. I did come bored with it after a month, I guess I must be a poser then...

Take a look at the games that each platform has and the games coming out in the near future.

Then see which games are likely to be played by yourself, your siblings and your girlfriend.

Maybe take a look at the extra features each console offers and see if you need or want them and whether or not you'll actually use them.

It's a very easy decision to make if you look at it realistically.

Don't let others tell you what to buy simply because they use feature X on console A or they like game Y on console B.

God why would anyone get a Wii when they can get a 360. 360 has better online, better controller, better games, better graphics. The only thing in my eyes that the wii has is a retarded inovation thats a fad for now and its very small and not HD.

Well, Wii is fun. I played through Twilight Princess and never really wanted it to end...it was SO good.
Also, it's fun to play with friends (Wii Sports/WiiPlay)...and it's totally blond girlfriend proof. (My girlfriend is blond). So...it's a very good option for you.

However, X360 will have a much larger library of games, and more variety. Also, it will have more mainstream games. Shooters, RPGs, and racing games...

So, make your decision knowing that...

The Wii is wonderful for little kids, and probably your girlfriend. I know my young stepbrother loves his Wii. However the 360 is a much better console and has better games. Plus Halo 3 and the next GTA are coming out in not too long and who wants to miss out on that? Even if you don't have an hdtv, you might get one someday and when that happens (in this hypothetical future) you'd be more amazed by the 360. Unfortunately the 360 wouldn't be the pick of the litter to play with your younger siblings and girlfriend though. Most of the games are only multiplayer over system link or xbox live (Clever Microsoft, force us all to buy one so we can play the good games together)
In conlusion, Xbox 360=Better Console (in my opinion) but Wii= Better choice (so it seems) in your situation.
