             Yes it may be late, but I have finally decided to put in my opinion about the consoles, their hardware, and how well they are doing financally. Most who read this won't care what I say about the consoles, so I will jump straight to the PC review.

 

       PC Review Part 1: The Games

 

           Well in the games category it is a mixed bag for the PC. There are many terrific games out there, but the PC has it's share of junk, shovelware, etc. My favorite genre of game on the PC is the one with some of the best and worst games for the PC, The MMORPG genre. It has many styles of game for many people to play, but it is also filled with buggy messes and games that are just plain out not fun. It also has those gems that are just the best ways to communicate with friends or do whatever you want.

PC Review Part 2: The Hardware

 

Here is the hardest part of the PC to review: the hardware. It has the most advanced technology to play games in it, but it is also the most expensive thing to buy and maintain. You could spend thousands a year just upgrading you PC so you can play games that are classified as "Next Gen"or you can keep it the same and still enjoy the older games. Overall, the most technologically advanced platform.

Now onto the game systems, let's start with my personal favorite, the PS3.

 

PS3 Review Part 1: The Games

 

      The PS3 has a wide variety of games, covering many genres of games. You have LittleBigPlanet, a very creative platformer that allows you to design your own levels and download other user created levels. Then you have Resistance 2, a FPS of gigantic proportions. 

      But alas, you have the other horrible games that demote this consoles score in this category. You have Vampire Rain: Altered Species, which is a port of the awful Xbox360 version. Then you have other 3rd party games which help deminish the score of the PS3

PS3 Games Final Verdict: 3.5 out of 5

 

PS3 Review Part 2: The Hardware

 

The hardware of the PS3 is where it beats the other 2 consoles in terms of technology. The PS3 has a lower hardware failure rate then the Xbox 360 and the Wii, and it also uses advanced technology that has remained untapped by developers. It is only beaten by the PC, which will always be lightyears ahead from consoles.

Now onto the choice of most hardcore console users, the Xbox 360.

 

Xbox 360 Review Part 1: The Games

 

        The Xbox 360 has many great games, but it also has a lot of crap too. One of the better games I have found is Gears of War 2, which doesn't have a very mature or long storyline, but it is at it's best when played online. The 360 also has many family orientated games, which have helped sales go up.

            The 360 is also plagued by many bugged filled messes too. One such game, Two Worlds, had one of the worst framerates I have ever seen. it was like watching slideshow, except in a video game. Another is Fuzion Frenzy 2, which is a horrible collection of minigames that will bore you to death.

Xbox 360 Review Part 2: The Hardware

 

       Hardware is where the 360 utterly fails. (besides one little thing called Xbox Live) the 360 doesn't have BAD graphics, it's just it's success rate. When Xbox 360's were first coming off the assembly line, they had 1 in 4 Xbox 360s suffering from this hardware failure called the "Red Ring of Death" which would prevent games from playing on the 360.

 

           The part where the 360 shines in the hardware catagory is Xbox Live. It is the best online console service out there. It has streamlined searching for arcade games, and it has also added Mi... I mean Avatars to the service. It also has brought a great feature that lets you watch movies directly from Netflix on your Xbox 360.

      Now onto the system of choice for casual gamers, the Wii.

 

Wii Review Part 1: The Games

 

      What to say about the Wii's selection of games...... all I can say is that most of the games for the Wii are Shovelware designed to take advantage of people who haven't played games before. There are only a few games I could recommend to people, and they may not be some people's preferred game.

 

Wii Games Final Verdict: 2 Out Of 5 (Those few gems save it's score by a point)

 

Wii Review Part 2: The Hardware

 

       The Wii's hardware is modest, to say the least. It isn't plagued by hardware failures, but it isn't the most graphically supercharged platform either. It has by far, the worst graphic capability of any of the consoles out right now. The added problems of no hard drive, almost no online capable games, and the dreaded friend codes don't really help the systems score.

Wii Hardware Final Verdict: 3 out of 5

 

Well on to the last part of this blog entry, the state of each station saleswise. I'll put it as list form so I won't have to make anyone read anymore long paragraphs.

1. The Wii

2. The Xbox 360

3. The PS3

Unknown: The PC

 

Well I hope that everyone Enjoyed reading this and I hope it helps some out there who are still looking for that console of choice.
