Thinking of buying a console...

I've been thinking of buying a console for quite a while now, the problem is there are so few games that I actually like the look of, being an RPG and Platform nut... Is it worth it just buying a PS3 just for a game in a series I like (Final Fantasy XIII) that's coming out soon? Is it worth buying a Wii because I like Mario and Zelda games? Or should I get an XBox 360 for whatever RPG or platformer titles they have on there?

A key consideration in my purchase of a console are several things: The number and quality of the games, The price, How resistant the console is to bumps and hard knocks, The warrantee length, etc.

After narrowing down the options greatly, I have come to the conclusion that the XBox 360 is out, there's just no way I'm going to buy one, same for the PS3 at this point, even though there is a game I want on that system - the PS3 is too pricey (at least in my country) and the 360 too buggy.

I will get a Wii, Its cheap at least compared to the other consoles, there are a wider range of games that I might like on the platform, though there are still far too many cutesy games for my liking.

However, since I am currently saving for a car and driving lessons, it would be unwise to buy a new console at this time.

 My advice is, if you're going to get a console, get one that can do something your PC can't, rather than just a gimpy computer to supplement your real computer.

Nintendo Wii is crap. Most of the games are meant for 6-10 year olds and then the gaming inept parts of the 35-45 crowd.  If your not going to get a 360 or a PS3 then I suggest a nintendo DS. It's much cheaper, mobile, and it has variations of most of the old RPG's people used to play. PSP is good too but it doesn't have a ton of RPG's. The PSP is pretty expensive though.

Even a modded Wii with every game gets boring really fast because all the games suck.
 

I you want to play Fable 2 get a 360 if you dont get a PS3

OK My Advice is a Nintendo Wii or PS3.

 

Ps3 - Has the Cell Processor which is of the most powerful processors. Used by the millitary, and Stanford University for reasearch. Gamewise , Yes it is worth games like FF13 (even though you can get it on both 360 n ps3) or Reisistance 2 or M.A.G (256 Players in one server..suck it PC) are the top reasons you get a ps3. Look up videos of the games you are looking for. You won't be dissapointed with the each console's exclusive content that you can missout with just a PC.

Nintendo Wii..OK alot of the games there are for "Kids" but its really intended for " families" as in "casual". Meaning anyone of any age can play, experience doesnt matter and all that. Wii does a few "hardcore" game titles coming out and some already out. Plus getting a wii might be better then sitting in a PC Chair all day..but most wii games dont require you to stand up unless its wii fit or something.

 

Anyways you won't be dissappointed with either console here. The reason I DON"T recommend a 360 is because it basically is a gaming computer with a controller. If you have a high-tec gaming PC then great. Your not missing out alot of 360..other then Halo 3 but thats going to computer eventually.

i got a PS3 to play games that my PC could not with decent graphics (there is no way i could run GTA IV with those kind of graphics smootly on my PC).  I have my PS3 sitting under my computer and (with that awesome wireless controller) i am able to play games while i download/grind/surf the web.

i have played an Xbox 360 and i can tell you that although it is a good machine, its not as powerful as the PS3 (but the Wii shows that power does not really compare to the fun factor). 

 

i would say grab whichever one you like most (based on game choice mostly).

Since you're a fan of RPGs (like myself :), I would definetly recommend the Xbox 360 over the other consoles for now, unless you wanted a handheld. There's a good mix of western and eastern RPGs on the 360, and 2009 will bring in even more stock. I'm not sure why you would rule it out so quickly..

Tales of Vesperia, Mass Effect, Eternal Sonata, Star Ocean 4, Fallout 3, Lost Odyssey, the Last Remnant, Infinite Undiscovery.. also, unless you plan on importing the japanese version of FFXIII, we won't be getting it until at least 2010 (and it'll also be on the 360).

I love my PS3 and I am very satiesfied with it. The online play is fun and you surf free with it, which is not the case with the 360. And as someone said Wii is for the family and friends moments like +3 players and good at partys.

I own Wii and PS3

Wii for multiplayer stuff when I have friends over.

Ps3 - For their exlcusives and PSN.

I didn't buy the Xbox 360 because it is pretty much a dumbed down PC. All their exclusive games aren't that great and usually just end up on the PC anyway.

I own both Ps3 and 360. The dill is whats exclusive to 360 is really not exclusive to 360. There almost always a PC port eventually, to the good games. Unlike if its a PS3 exclusive, where it will only appear on the PS3. I even enjoy the blue-ray player the ps3 has to offer aswell.

SOE has announced that all future MMO's will be on PS3 too and some console exclusive MMO's from NCSoft.

360 or PS3.  Get 360 as this has the most rpgs out of the two, even JRPG exclusives.  And im having a blast with Fable 2.  Also the 360 is getting Final Fantasy 13 but not Final Fantasy versus 13.
