Alternate operating system? lol
Why would you buy a PS3 for folding...
Blu-Ray is useless for all of America's 480i TVs...
Takes SD cards, instead of Sony exclusive Memory Sticks.
Same...
WiiMote controls...
Chicks enjoy playing it with you...
Much cheaper...
Had Rumble from the beginning...

Sucks to have a 480i, but you can still use composite.

Memory sticks? The PS3 will take any and all memory sticks, a keyboard, a printer, thumb drives, and even access your windows or linux folders via your home network.... and that's all from the regular interface; sony allows and promotes, and makes it an easy painless process, installing linux.... then you have firefox, etc.

The PS3 has some movement based games as well.

Chicks play the PS3 as well.

Nice, but I bet you some of those games will eventually be changed to multi-platforms to make more money.

See, this is why I stay with PC and have for years,,lol.

Anyway, yes it is good to see the PS3 having some momentum now as that will help with the Blu-ray, heck I'll pay what I would normally for a Blu-Ray drive and have all these options.

But that's not the point. So as a gaming console it actually diminishes it's quality in my eyes, it's kinda like a HTPC with streamed games.

And we all know even my lowly rig could pounce on what the PS3 can do even with the cell since it isn't fully utilized to it's capabilities.

how is the wii not competing with the 360 and ps3? your logic makes no sense. as others have pointed out thats like saying a budget end dell outselling an xps automatically means the budget end line isnt a computer. yes its not marketed for high end users but its still a computer in its self. it can all the same functions that an xps can do, but the xps just does it more and better.

and if you really want to get technical, the playstation isnt a gaming console, it's a computer. Why? Last time i check the division in sony that makes the PS is called SCE which stand for sony computer entertainment. Also you must factor in that the ps3 main selling point isn't games, its a trojan horse for a blu-ray player.

So the main focus of the console was to be an entertainment center then a gaming machine. Where the 360 put gaming first then entertainment. Then the wii only does gaming.

also if the wii isnt a console, then what is it? a box with spare chips(dont make a joke out of that)?

Just stop splitting hairs cause the wii is winning, its a game console no matter how you cut it, and just cause its marketed to a different group doesn't make it anything else but a smart move by nintendo.

A: Who cares about the Wii? Does the title of the thread even say Wii?
B: How can I not make a joke of that... I am going to sig it as:

the wii isnt a console, then what is it? a box with spare chips

= the wii isn't a console... a box with spare chips.

For Console Gamers...

* Forty percent of most frequent game players are under eighteen years old.
* Thirty-five percent of most frequent game players are between 18 and 35 years old.

its pretty much safe to say people over 30 play a ps3 and a 360 along with the wii.

I'm a dedicated 360 fanboy. I didn't pick the console because of system specs or earlier release. I chose it because I wanted to play the software that was out for that console.
Thats whats most important. It's the reason the PS2 killed the Xbox. (well, Sony made everyone sign exclusives so it wasn't the direct fault of MS)

But I need a high-def player. That alone wouldn't force me to buy PS3 but they will be coming out with some decent software soon. (And I do love Final Fantasy).
So it's a no brainer. I'll have to own both systems. Which isn't a bad thing, variety is a spice of life! But lack of money is a bad thing. Oh well, hope the GF doesn't ***** too much.

As far as the Wii goes... no comment... No I lied.. I'm gonna comment: Is it just me, or is the Wii a DS you can hook to your TV with a fancy remote?

Are you 15? I'm turning 29 next week and I'm a hardcore gamer as well as most of my friends who 'all' own 360's and they're my age or older. Gaming isn't just for kids anymore. Those of us growing up playing Colecovision and NES still play. Though to the poster above, I thought the average age of a gamer was 28. Which made me feel less insecure about my gaming habits
