Revolution.

I'm a die hard Nintendo fan. I've owned every sytem. I never get into PS or Xbox.

I'm intrigued by the possibilities of the new controller system, but I like that I can switch and use the GC controller too for older games.

I hope they get into more of the mainstream/adult games with this system. I think it was GC's big downfall.


Side note, I just got a DS for christmas and like it alot so far.
Nintendo rarely lets me down.

The XBox 360 is very nice - great graphics on PGR 3 although mine sounds like one of those mini-vacuums. I'm a little disappointed in the lack of digital video though - especially from such a high end GPU. And the box itself is has a certain Third World quality - and I hate to pay $20+ for a piece of wood-grain plastic for a new face-plate. Anyways - funds (and wife) permitting - I'll be getting the PS3 too - so choice "F". Some great new PS3 pix on Hexus today - appearance-wise its an order of magnitude better looking than the 360.

I already have a 360 and I'll be getting a Revolution.

No PS3 for me.....unless it's under $400 (which I HIGHLY doubt).

I am getting all three of them. At least I am currently planning on my getting the Revo. But that will ultimately be determined by what games they are releasing for the system.

Well, for sure ALL of the Nintendo made games from the NES all the way up to the Gamecube. That in itself is a great reason to own it.

Seeing as how no actual game footage has been shown for PS3, can you really say that?

I currently have an XBOX360. The game lineup is horrible right now. IMO, anyway.

I was at Target earlier today and only saw 12 XBox 360 games displayed. Is that all they have right now?

H. for me--none of the above.

I haven't bought a console since the N64 I got back in '99. And while I got all the cool games for it I rarely play them anymore.

Too busy playing PC games, I guess.

A PS3 when the price gets reasonable.So probably in a few years.;f

PS 3 for me1

Why: my research has showed that there will be two grades of PSIII.
The basic will use a wired controller, but still be able to play PS 1, PS II&PSIII games.

Fancy offers only wireless controls. So, I'll get the basic PS3.

either f or c. i will be getting a PS3 no doubt, dont know when though. its been pushed to november, who didnt see that comming, also i like to give it some time for them to work out the bugs in the system. ive never gotten a launch system, although im torn with the ps3, it will depend on my cash situation and the games that come out with it. as for the 360, ive been thinking about it as something to play in the meantime beofre getting the ps3, because i think it will be feb next yeay at least before youll be able to get on in a store with out standing in line for one, i just havent seen enough games i like on it to justify the money.
i will get a ps3 for the same reason i got a ps1 and ps2, gran turismo.
also the ps3 having blu-ray will help it a lot, if they keep it that is.

I plan on buying a PS3 just to sell it on ebay. Hopefully people will be willing to pay stupid amounts for it like they did for the 360 and Ninetendo DS.

I will pick one up after the rush dies down (and Gran Turismo 5 comes out).

I'm waiting to see what the PS3 can do. I'm not overly impressed by the 360 but I'm sure I'll pick one up when Halo3 comes out.

The PS3 is gonna be a big lemon. The 360 has got a ton of momentum and nothing Sony can put together can match Live. Blu-ray is a red herring for games because nothing can use all of that space for at least 4 more years and by then the next next-gen consoles will be out (with HD or Blu-ray, which ever wins). Besides, if that ICP/HDMI crap goes through the PS3 is USELESS unless you have a very new TV.

I have yet to se a single verified in-game screen shot that came from an actual PS3, not a dev kit or pre-rendered. I have a stack of awesome 360 games and plenty of in-game stuff to drool over for the next year. I think that 360 games will graphically match PS3 games (or their hype, anyway) at the same time of release. You can't comapre a game with a November 2005 release date (current 360 launch games) with a game with a Spring 2007 release date (or whenever the PS3 streets), that's 18 months apart!!

360 for me! I'm waiting for the first price drop and then I'm pouncing - my guess is they'll drop the price when the PS3 comes out. If not, I can wait a bit longer. At least until Halo 3 comes out... oh, and until I can afford a new HDTV.

It's the games - Too Human; the next GTA game; Oblivion; Gears of War; and (but of course!) Halo 3. There's nothing better than going on XBox Live!(tm) and having your younger brother run you through with a plasma sword. Over and over again. Ah, good times. Revenge must be sweet - for him, anyway.

I gotta admit the PS3 is tempting for its Blu-Ray integration- I originally bought the PS2 for the included DVD player. I'm just not convinced that Sony's got a winner with Blu-Ray. This is, after all, the company that produced Betamax tapes (which admittedly were technically superior to VHS - or so video geek friends have told me).

Part of it is.

I already bought the Xbox 360. The PS3 is interesting but all this bad press about it is worrisome. I guess it doesn't really matter to me that much as I wouldn't buy one just for the BluRay player (I'll get a HD movie player-but either not until there's a clear winner between BD and HD-DVD or there's a dual-format player) and I'm not hardcore enough of a gamer to buy the system until it drops significantly in price.

I am in the process of price shopping for an Xbox 360. My brother is a supervisor at Target, so I am weighing his discount and shipping to me vs eBay.

I play some PC games but hit a wall with my video card. Of course I have a low profile card so shopping is a PITA. My fave is BF: 'Nam. I also have the PSP.

So to finally answer your question, Both the XBox 360 and PS3 when it comes out.

It isn't about the console, it is about the games. That is why people buy the consoles, to play the games. XBox 360 games will be different than PS3 games and people will buy both consoles to play certain games. Xbox 360 will have cool games and so will PS3.

After N64, Nintendo went downhill. They really have to work hard to impress me. I don't see them as a viable contender anymore in the console wars. Only Xbox and Sony are worthy competitors. Everyone else is just a joke, IMO.
