PS3. Since you had an XBOX360 the PS3 games are probably more suited to your tastes.

I recommend Uncharted, AC, COD4, Warhawk, and Resistance. Take your pick.

Obviously the PS3 fanboys are just going to say PS3 without reason.
But really, with the PS3 you're paying alot more money for something that's alot similar to your 360.
The Wii is cheaper and gives you more variety.
Your choice, I'm just actually giving you proper reasons to help make your decision.

I'd get Wii. The PS3 is just too similiar to the XBox. You can get Assasin's Creed for Xbox, and the Wii is revolutionary in what it does. If you want something new and refreshing get the Wii.

Many of the ps3 big titles are also for 360... so I think you should try the wii out first.

Wii. Many of the best PS3 games are on 360 and the Wii has a better library right now.

PS3. More games to choose from than Wii. Metacritic has 54 titles over 75% for PS3 vs 25 titles over 75% for Wii. I have both PS3 and Wii. Once you play X360 or PS3 it gets really hard to play Wii. Also Wii has horrible online, that might as well be non-existant. If you are thinking Wii wait until at least one price drop it's very overpriced right now for what you get. Go PS3; you might even like it more than you did your X360.

Wii and variety, yeah lets play kiddy daycare madness and zak and kidi then SMG which is the only game worth it, get the PS3 now, play uncharted, ratcher and clank, warhawk, UT 3, NGS and folklore, and use it to stream your movie files onto your TV and everything else that cant be done on a wii.

I did give a reason. PS3 games are more suited for XBOX 360 owners. They tend to like better graphics, shooters, and online play, three things that the PS3 does a lot better than the Wii.

With the PS3 you're paying a lot more for something that's similar to the 360? Let's see, for $50 more, you're getting a bigger hard drive, built-in wifi, built-in blu-ray player, free online, with a much smaller failure rate. You should have said with the PS3 you're GETTING a lot more for PAYING something that's similar to the 360.

See how the people that say PS3 have no reason.
The people that have Wii have a good reason.

Yeah but he didn't say anything about his tastes, plus there's 360 owners out there that don't like the PS3. This could be in his case, it's all a matter of opinion and like I said I was just giving him thinking options.

For the price thing I was refering to PS3 and Wii btw.

Spoken like a true sheep, this guy is spinning his original statement around just so it doesn't look like he's getting PWNED! We all know you were talking about PS3 and 360 in terms of price. Wii is lousy and won't be worth it untill the next Zelda game, and we all know that YOU'RE waiting for that game more than any of us and just the antiicipation makes you feel like your Wii was worth the buy... Wii is gggggaaaaaarrrrbage

Depends on how big of a nintendo fan you are. If you don't get into the core nintendo games then you wont find much else you'll like on the wii. Don't get me wrong, there are good 3rd party games out, but few and far between.

Well XBOX360 owners do tend to like the three things I listed. If they didn't, they probably would have gotten a Wii instead of a 360. So it's not a huge leap to say that Wii probably don't appeal to them as much.

As for the price, why say that Wii is a lot cheaper than the PS3, but then say 360 is similar? It would be a better argument to say that Wii is much cheaper, and it's similar to the PS3. Unfortunately, it's not.

Actually I WAS comparing the PS3 and Wii prices, Mr. Observant.

But really, with the PS3 you're paying alot more money for something that's alot similar to your 360.
The Wii is cheaper and gives you more variety.

As people with a brain can see, I am clearly differing the PS3 and Wii prices. I do mention the 360, but that's just backing up how Wii60 gives more variety.

"Wii is lousy and won't be worth it untill the next Zelda game"
That's your opinion, and a bad one at that.

Okay some people aren't understanding the wording.

I was trying to say that buying a PS3 is more expensive than the Wii (Yes, thw two that the TC wants compared), and seeing as it's more similar to the 360 which he already has, it may not be his best option.

Get the console that has the most games that appeal to you as of this moment.
