i have played the 360 alot and i still think the computer has the edge, only because they are about even now and the pc has never ending room to grow.

My next Buy is of course Wii! Who cares about the graphic and performance when you can get the most innovative console for under $200?

I have a xbox 360 and games like ghost gecon and oblivion are still way ahead on the xbox then there are on the pc, but im sure but early '07 this will be put to right with the next gen graphics cards and processors.

P.S. if you have played halo then you know a xbox 360 is a good investment.

I'd like to get an Xbox but something about the extra power PS3 claims to have pulls me towards it... and I think it's good I can play all of my old PS2 games on it. And if it's more popular than the Xbox I'll want it so I can share games with my friends and be used to the controller ect.

they say extra powerhouse, but the machine has half the L2 cache per core that the 360, which has had some developers up in arms cos the machine doesnt have the bandwidth they need. its like having the power of a X1900XTX but with a 128bit memory bus instead of the full fat 256bit bus. bottlenecks are gonna be the PS3 downfall.

Nintendo Wii FTW!!!!! Wii looks extremely easy to use, family friendly, and just plain awesome. And I also voted for the PC because every game that the Wii can't handle, a PC will :D.
