So now that all 3 next generation consoles have been released, which one is the best? Better yet, which one is for you? Hopefully this brief roundup of the 3 systems and their capabilities will help you decide. I hope you enjoy my rundown – please leave comments about your own experiences with each system.
If you’re a man, this is the console for you. I owned the original Xbox and the Playstation 2 and there was no comparison in the game play – Xbox won hands down. I feel the same way with this next generation of consoles. The game titles offered for the Xbox are unparalleled… especially when you include the “only for xbox” titles:
- Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3 (Release Date TBA)
- Project Gotham, Project Gotham 2, Project Gotham 3
- Gears of War – Read my brief review here
All I have to say about the Xbox is positive, the only negative thing I can think of is its size… but like I said earlier, “If you’re a man, this is the console for you.” If you think it’s too big or bulky, buy a Nintendo Wii, if you want to take it with you wherever you go, buy a PSP. Those of you who complain about the size of the Xbox 360 need to shut-up. I think the Xbox 360 is best suited for any man who loves action games… if you’re an RPG game… the next console is for you.
Now I’m not saying that the Xbox 360 was a bargain, but I am saying that the Playstation 3 is way overpriced. I can’t believe that people are actually paying for this thing… it’s a glorified PS2… they just updated the DVD reader! 😉 In all honesty, it’s a decent system, but the graphical performance doesn’t even touch that of the Xbox 360. I might consider buying a PS3 once the Playstation 4 is released… then the price might be reasonable enough. Summary… RPG gamers… Warcraft fans… this is your system!
Lastly we have the Wii. I have not had the chance to play this system yet, but I think this is more of a system for younger kids, or for those guys who want to get their wives or girlfriends into gaming. The nunchuck style control could prove to be really entertaining, however I’d feel like a complete retard standing in my living room at 1am by myself swining my arms around… the Wii is much better suited as a party system.
