So, soon the three major next-gen consoles will be on sale. Which one is your favorite? Which ones will you buy? And when? Which console do you think will sell most? Discusss.

MARKET SHARES

That nifty site shows how many units are sold of each console. The market share is, understandably, quite uneven for now but will change a lot in the next few months and eventually years.

The site also offers userbar-like banners, great for fanboys:

And how about this smart quote:

The Wii has already won the console war, as its the last remaining console. The PS3 and the 360 are just computers in disguise.

My list goes: Wii, ps3, xbox 360. So yeah, I'm going to get a Wii when it comes out. Idk the price of one, so hopefully it doesn't cost much.

I checked it: 180GBP. That's a bit more than in most euro countries, and a lot more than in the US. Japan gets it really friggin' cheap, at current exchange rates $215!

Here's how I rank them: xbox360,wii,ps3

The ps3 costs way too much, and the wii has a ton of kiddie games. The only good game announced so far is sadness. Xbox360's titles aren't too bad, and it's not as pricey as the ps3. The ps3 is more like a computer anyway.

My ranking is the same as maniac's. The wii is something the whole family can enjoy, no bloody games that make your lil sister run away crying and puke on herself. The PS3 won't be a bad console if it had better launch games, optional blu-ray player and more than 256MB unified RAM and we can't forget the design flaws that could have been so easily solved. Sony just screwed up this time.

Out of those 3, i would choose the xbox 360.
It has amazing games coming out on it, like Halo 3 & gears of war e.t.c.
My ranking- 360,ps3,wii
end of


p.s. I'm saving up for the full system.
only 100 so far from bday money, I'll save up with christmas money, & left over pocket money.
I might wait until it falls in price, but i don't know when that will be.

No price cut on the 360 in the xmash season, you shouldn't wait unless you want one with the new 65nm chips.

For the people who haven't heard, that's a small CPU upgrade which will make the thing run cooler.

Anyways, if you've been watching the counter, so far 250,000 PS3s have been sold in a few days. In that same period, 150,000 XBox 360's have been sold! Probably by people looking for a PS3, didn't find one, and didn't want to go home empty-handed. So now there are 7 million 360s sold, Sony's going to have a hard time catching up.

Wii release went much smoother. 250,000 units sold already. Seems like the Wii will sell more than the PS3 at first, thanks to the bigger supplies right now. My guess is that it'll continue to sell more thanks to the lower price.

That's what happens when you have a very expensive item that everybody wants. People don't buy it, they just steal it and get shot and someone else takes it. Nobody actually goes home with it except for the judge. The wii is for everyone, and it's pretty cheap compared to it's competitors! biggrin.gif

Well the Wii stock simply is bigger too. Nintendo expects to have 2 million units in the US by the end of the year.

And..

well you have to understand that the PS3 is 600 for the fully loaded one

and the nintendo is 250 + the remote stick thing is around 300

so take the PS3 number and double it, that how you should compare it

I don't know how you can say that the PS3 is over priced. Try going out and buying a blu-ray DVD player. They are more expensive than a PS3. The PS3 has the hardware.

However, the Wii has caught my attention. I probably won't buy it. But the controller and whatnot seem extremely fun.

Developer talks PS3 vs XBox 360

Yes, the PS3 is faster on paper. So people have been thinking it actually IS faster. But it isn't. In fact it's slower than the XBox 360. According to that guy. And HE can know, he's been making games for both systems already. If you're interested or still not sure for which one of the two to buy, read that guy's article.

very good point.
The PS3 is something i would have thought would have more sales.
Seeing as the ps2 is owned by loads of people.
