Your friend is an idiot.

I myself am an X-Box fan(not fanboy ), but I must say Xbox 360 isn't as great as some people make it out to be. Xbox was great, xbox 360 is decent/pretty good.The game selection for 360 isn't great atm - and it doesn't look like it's going to get a whole lot better for a while. Theres actually a few RPGs coming out that I'm looking forward to though and I'll just let the good games find me. Also not to mention, the backwards compatability fucking blows. I've played a few xbox games on my 360 and they have major framerate problems. Ninja gaiden has constant framerate probs when fighting, causing progression to be slow and annoying. Halo 2 has framerate problems when theres 2-3 people on-screen shooting at once, when someone is invisible, or when someone has the sword.

Anyways, I agree that the PS3 Price is retardedly high, but thats no reason to say someone is "retarded" for buying one. PS3 will definitely have larger selections in certain genres than 360 and wii (duh) and 360 and wii will have their own too. Personal preference.

Though I do believe that the wii is going to do very well, because of it's very nice pricetag.

I wonder if people who ask the internet which console to buy actually expect good advice?

Ok, you can buy a PS3 for $599 OR you can buy an Xbox 360 for $399 and save $200 to buy nice games for. Unless you want the PS3 exclusives badly, the 360 is obviously the better deal.

Or you can buy an Xbox (w. Forza) for $179, a slim PS2 for $129, a GameCube for $99 and a Nintendo DS for $129 and still have spent less than you would have had on that god damn PS3.

 
- Ok, you must admit that was the most creative cussing this site have ever seen -

$599 is a lot for a console firespell.
I think the 3do was that much on release though.

But since you will get comparable power from the Xbox360 and something different from the Wii, you would be better off keeping an open mind about your choice.

Thing I find quite amusing is how people are saying "If you buy a PS3, you're an idiot" - when the PS3 hasn't even been released. You can't judge any console before you've played on it. It's the games that matter - not the price or the company who made the console, or even the specs. It's like - Eternal Daughter had superb graphics, was worked on by a team for a long time and was a larger file size than, for example, Seek and dread online - but I'd much rather play Seek and dread any day.

My point is - that I have played several games on the X360 and they are not amazing, they are nothing new and they are not worth the money of what the X360 costs. That doesn't mean that the PS3 is worth the money - the PS3 hasn't been released, so I can't judge whether it is worth my money or not.

I have seen several of these articles slamming all 3 consoles - and one thing they don't take into consideration is that people have different tastes and opinions. Some will want a PS3, some a 360, some a Wii, some a PC and some will just play on older consoles. Calling a person an 'idiot' because they prefer something over another, is immature in my opinion.

So yes, terrible article

people who say that you are an idiot if you buy a ps3 are just offended by the announced release price.
A) Get a job and make some bux
B) Deal with it and smoke some wee
C) Get real angry and tell everyone they are idiots.. wait =/

I tend to find (and I'm sure everyone else does too) that I actually end up spending more on the games than I do on the console. I think the RRP price of the xbox 360 games is pathetic to be honest - that's actually what put me off buying it. I had to spend 50 to buy ONE game - I know that price has now reduced in most places, but I still think games should only be 30 max. I'm expecting PS3 games to be rather expensive as well - considering they're on that new format and everything.

When i had a gamecube, i paid whatever it was that it originally cost (200 i think) but ended up spending over 1000 on games (i had quite a few games though)

I spent more money replacing my fucking broken PS2's than I spent on ALL GAMES FOR THIS GENERATION (every system).

That's why I'm not buying a damned PS3. Prove to me it won't fucking break in 6 months.

I wouldn't be pissed if it was just one Ps2, but I've gone through 3 of them (Not buying a fouth).
