But most people buy consoles for the games. I bought a 360 for Halo3 and Halo Wars. And I guess because PS3 controllers for me, are horrible for FPS.

It's not always about "ZOMG better graphics," or "omg blue ray!"

Wii is pretty fun

Are you senial? The cost of a single BluRay disc is higher than 10 DVD's. Thats all that was stated. Yes, i am speaking English. Sounds like you need some schooling son.

(please do not take offence, i am aware you have one lol)
considering the PS3 is selling better than the 360 pretty much everywhere outside of North America....I wouldn't doubt people's willingness to spend money on electronics that are worth the price...

Recordable discs, yes. Movies cost about 3x as much though.

The only reason I am considering getting a second Xbox 360 is because it has Xbox Live and some AMAZING titles. Screw Halo 3, Rainbow Six: Vegas and Saints Row are so much fun to play online with a few of your friends. I have 26 months of Xbox Live (mister balls is my name) and I play my 360 a lot.

I'm probably going to get a Premium because I will only use like half a gigabyte of space on my hard drive because I will only have one profile and play a few games (no more than 5).

Also, if HD-DVD becomes the new DVD (a very slim chance) I can always buy an HD-DVD Player for my 360 and watch movies in 720p on my Monitor.

Hmm might get a 360 now to sit next to my ps3. The upcoming rpgs make it tempting. Boo to MS for forcing me to buy the 360 with it's games!!!

The Xbox 360 Pro (without any gay bundles) comes with no games; just:

If the 360 elite carried the HD-DVD drive than that would definitely sell, PS3 at 499$ is a good value since it has wifi and Blu-Ray, although I hate feeding Sony with my money...they have a lot of overpriced products.
