Yeah, he does, and you have a habit of encouraging him.

And I have a habit of becoming annoyed by stuff like this. Keep to the topic and let's not have this devolve into Wii vs PS3.

Each has their own pros/cons and everyone is entitled to liking the one they want to. Hell if I had the money for it, I would have bought a ps3 a long time ago as the Wii and its gimmicky controller and (especially for a new console) very low end graphics do not thrill me. Not to mention how popular the ps2 turned out in the end. IIRC the PS2 got much the same rap when it came out and by the end was THE console to have. The PS3 has a lot to recommend it as well, it is mainly the price tag that is the problem. I wouldn't be surprised if 6 months down the road there is suddenly a large price drop or something.

Larkin: for what it is worth, I wish I could help you but I haven't the foggiest idea how :D

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

same. i have been waiting for the PS£ to come out before deciding which to get. the wii appeals to me, but only for the reason that you can download some kick ass sega megadrive games onto it. other then that it is very gimmicky, especially when you dont have a proper controller. and the graphics are weak.

the 360 to me looks like the best option so far, although i havent played the PS3 yet. good graphics, xbox live, and by far and away some of the best games out at the moment. the only thing that really puts me off is the controllers, which i have never liked and the hidden cost for things.

PS3, well to buy one now would be stupid. £4oo, and it wont play many ps2 games. the americans and the japs get a better console than us. so not only are you paying for the console, youre gonna have to pay a fuckload for new games and shit. as i say though, i havent played it yet so my opinion may change.

and please, at least try and use basic punctuation, it just makes the post so much easier to read. Seriously, without trying to sound like Uber, it does.

I'll stick to the 360, it seems to be the best all rounder console wise, average price, good games, good capabilities, easy to use, good online and good graphics its just the best all rounder.

as for Downloading Music videos, are you definetly sure it can do it?, if you are I my uncle knows someguy who wasted his money on one as well, so I'll ask him to ask his mate how he does it, and then I can tell you.

I think I'll wait till PS3 gets to around £150-200 otherwise, its a rip-off

Well as for the games, this is not the only system to be released that didn't have a lot of games when it came out!

ok so the contenders!

1, Wii - The graphics are not the best, but damn its fun! Good for a laugh i think Nintendo have scored because it's cheap and i think people will buy it and have one of the other two as well. Good for party games, but they have to get the strap problem solved.

2, PS3 - A fantastic idea, really badly executed IMO. Amazing graphics, but not fully backwards compatable, and really really expensive. Again i don't see why we should have to pay more for a not so good console when it's cheaper and more backwards compatable in other countries. It will remain to be seen if the blue ray is worth it!

3, XboX360 - It has fantastic graphics, lots of games, is cheaper than the ps3, and is backwards compatable! If you can get over the fact that your giving money to Bill Gates then IMO this is the best all round console on the market!

Now this is just my opinion! But just now the 360 win's. We'll just have to see if sony can pull it back!

I'm with Marz, I love my 360. Microsoft just bought the rights to Final Fantasy and Metal Gear, so it's all good in my MS hood.

On a side note, Larkin, please... punctuate.
