Well I for one have to admit I prefer the 360 over the PS3 now, while I wanted a PS3 more than A Wii before E3. Peter Moore is right when he said you could buy a Wii and a 360 for the price of a PS3. I'm not sure if I'm going to buy any of the three consoles yet but if I do it will probably be a Wii.

Perhapes more importantly, the Xbox360 will be getting some nice games around that time.
And Nintendo has an impressive launch line up.

Also, I am sure Microsoft will cut their price before launch.

They they do a Too Human + 360 bundle, then some shop adds a Wii + Game into it, Id be tempted to get it


oh, I love this video;

I'm getting a Wii at launch and then a 360. My brother will most likely continously demand a PS3, so I'll probably get one of those in like 5 years.

I won't get any consoles at launch (probably) unless the Wii package is really good (2-4 controllers/nunchucks etc.), but will most definitely be getting it for the holidays.

I doubt I'd ever get a 360 just because the exclusives I want are from Sony (SOCOM, Formula One, etc.), so I'll end up buying a PS3 somewhere down the road. I know I had the GCN for my last-gen launch console, and then I bought a PS2 about a year/year and a half later (mostly because of the lack of decent 3rd party/sports support for the Cube).

DF: I like these two quotes: "The stages of the game will also be based on famous battles that actually took place... so here's this giant enemy crab!" - Genji 2.

Oh and "Ah lot of great features with this game. Features such a, ah, real time weapon change" - Genji 2

Yes. It's propaganda, but it's halarious propaganda.

Yeah, theres some classic lines

I mean, isnt it fantastic to have real time weapon change?!?
Rather then having too wait 5 minutes like non-ps3 games have too

DF: Know that I think about it, it's gonna be a great game. We're gonna fight CRAB PEOPLE! CRAAAB PEOPLE, CRAAAB PEOPLE, CRAAAB PEOPLE, TASTE LIKE CRAAAB, TALK LIKE PEOPLE, CRAAAB PEOPLE!

Oh and another great Sony quote:

Such innovations are made possible because of the combination of technology, cost and manufacturing capacity."
Nice sony. Truly you invented the idea of space with depth.

Oh and another thing, the Super FX chip which allowed 3D graphics on was released even before Sega Saturn and Sony Playstation. Plus, the Playstation was Nintendo's idea. Fair enough, admittedly, Nintendo did take the idea of playing cds from Sega.

Sega invented Toys too. (Pocket Powers!)

But seriously now, 3D was a slow process of development spanning many systems. Wireframe 3D went back to Tank games in the arcade, to stuff like "Elite" and "Mercenary" on the microcomps.
Alone in the Dark had solid shadeing and fixed backdrops for the first time.
But numberious other games were around with all sorts of stages as to the
3D.
The N64 actualy had hardware 3D in a console for the first time, but thats nothing really, and thats all you can pretty much say to it.
