the wii is not a real console. it's a toy like a gameboy. "real" consoles have good graphics like x360 or ps3. the wii has the graphics that my xbox had.

also x360 arcade and premium are cheaper than the wii

Wii is a game console. You insert game media, connect the unit to a display, and use the controller to play a video-game. By definition that's a game console.

Allow me to enlighten you.

A real console by your definition would be the gamecube. It had superior graphics to the ps2 thus the ps2 is a toy.

You can't say its a toy simply because it doesn't have the same graphics. Its not all about graphics and bloom its about how much fun the console is. If the ps3 rendered everything exactly like real life and all you did was walk about and do nothing that wouldn't be fun.

I would have to disagree about the Wii not being a "Real" console. Sure, the graphics are not in par with the Xbox 360 or PS3 but I have to say I have alot more fun playing on a Wii than the other two consoles because I actually have to get off my ass and I like the feeling of being more "involved" in a game instead of just mashing buttons. If I want eye candy then I'd go for a 360 or PS3, but if I want something more...Wii it is. I just can't believe how well the Wii is doing considering the economic turmoil the world is in right now. Keep it up Nintendo!

Wii is a console, the PS3 is a computer/multimedia player.

But I don't really like the Wii though.. I'd rather go for the 360.

So then your pc is not a "real" pc x800 = 2004 versus 4870X2 = 2008

Hmmm I'm not sure if you're trying to be a troll here but Ill risk a feeding.

Anyway the Wii is the only "real" console out as far as I'm concerned. The rest are sub-par PC's. Iv been playing games for 27 years and if you think a console should always have better graphics than the last generation then your missing the point of gaming. It's about gameplay. Not graphics. If you're so concerned with graphics then you should be spending your money on a good GPU and not a console.

What does the PS3 or 360 bring new to the table? USB cables and HDMI is about all they offer over the last generation. Now the Wii on the other hand has revolutionized home gaming. Nintendo has done something to gaming that hasn't been done since the Atari and thats the way we perceive games should be played.

Sure the Xbox is now cheaper then the Wii but that wasnt always the case. You can lower the price after the fact but still........thats after the fact. Wii has always been about gaming. Its not a little gaming PC wannabe. Mark my words the "next-gen" systems Sony and Microsoft produce will have Wii style controls.

i dont want to get in a flaming war, but did you just say the gamecube has better graphics then the ps2...*blinks*

Marineborn I ain't going to argue with you as numbers don't lie. But remember its not always about the hardware but how the game uses it. Did you know RE4 was voted best graphics for the last generation of systems? I mean thats beating the original Xbox which had FAR superior hardware.

where is the point in buying a "next-gen" console if my old one has the same gfx as the next-gen console. the only pont would be if you have money to throw out of the window.

also my x360 has gfx like this:
what does the wii have? gfx from the year 2002.

You don't understand gaming man. The Wii's sales prove my point. However you ask what the Wii brings? Superior control and a MUCH faster learning curve. After all it is about games and not graphics ;) Again if its about graphics then you should by a better PC. Show me a console game that looks like this.....

@ marineborn

Remember that the 2900XTX looks like it would eat the 8800GTX if you looked at thenumbers but it doesn't. There are more to it than just the clock speeds and shader count etc.

Marineborn I ain't going to argue with you as numbers don't lie. But remember its not always about the hardware but how the game uses it. Did you know RE4 was voted best graphics for the last generation of systems? I mean thats beating the original Xbox which had FAR superior hardware.
Exactly I was going to use RE4 as an example.

@mtosev

The ps3 can't even run crysis never mind beat the pc.
