please, PLEASE don't start this

and you left out the computer!!!

HOW DARE YOU!!!

the wii has completely different everything but only a few good games and a lot of add-ons you have to buy. The PS3 has some pretty good games and quality (also blu-ray) and looks shiny, but it costs quite a bit. The xbox 360 has some pretty good games, doesn't cost too much, and comes with a wireless controller, but charges you for online and you have to buy an adapter just to get online.

i got to agree. With PC, you get everything and not one genre. With PS3, you get higher graphics and the games being shoot 'em ups and hardcore shit. the Wii gives puzzle-solving, fitness, and generally EVERYTHING has to be Mario-related. The XBOX 360 is sort of a mix. I got a Wii and it has its ups and downs, but i like it. I'm still figuring out if i should pay for online or not if i get a new console.

Another thing. Before you pull a random console out your ass, make sure you have friends that play online or friends in general. It will give you an idea on who has what and a better idea on what console to get.

Let me explain something to you all.
PS3=Fancy Bluray grill.
Xbox360=WTF RINGZ O' DOOM
Wii=Party system.
Computer=redundent unless you have an awesome computer.
Therefore, EVERY. CURRENT. SYSTEM. SUCKS.
AND I SHOULD KNOW. I HAVE ALL OF THEM.
Life is whatever.

I will give the consoles 2 other things:
1. If people come over to your house - PC is balls for entertaining THEM, and they get mad you're ignoring them.
2. Fighting games (mortal combat, street fighter 2) don't really work on the PC, and party games....but really that goes back to point 1.

So this huge argument I've heard against the 360 is the Red Ring of Death, which only MIGHT occur every 2 years. But that says nothing about any other features of the Xbox. The Red Ring isn't really a downside anymore, more like a joy to you when you get it. When an Xbox gets part of the ring, it still operates as functional and it is able to be fixed at home. Still a hassle, but nothing much. When it gets to the state that you are no longer able to play it, guess what? You get to send it in to Microsoft and they fix everything wrong with it for free. That means not only what caused the failure, but also anything else that you could have screwed up with it. Unlimited warranty. It's not like the PC doesn't crash or need upgrades or repairs anyways, right?

In my opinion, Xbox comes in second only to PC.

As long as you have the red ring and haven't tampered with it, it's free. You may have had to bought your Xbox once the unlimited warranty came out, but that was only about a year after the initial release.

PC for me,

and as Grim Says, console for visitors. But screw all those consoles.

PS2 4 life! I got mine cheap and used like 10 years ago, can find tons of cheap used games that are fun and it's good for watching DVD's.
This would be worth money if you had it in writing

My brother bought a used one from someone which he didn't pay very much for and eventually he got the red ring of death and the xbox people completely replaced it for free.
So he got a brand new xbox for a cheap price.

Not really, I got mine in about a week, (both times it happened) Call me odd, but I get a kick when I do call support. The poor bastards are freaking traumatized from the drunken frats that call... :)
Also, PS2=fuck yes. All I really use gamefly for these days is to get old ps2 titles I missed because I was retarded and had xbox and gamecube and it's worked it's way up to my favorite console of all time.

All I know is that I'm gonna play some more TF2.
