Sadly, the Wii's cell processor is better than PS3's, however the overall specs of the system were more around the 360's in terms of what it can do.

the Wii will rely on games that are more fun, games you can play over and over again, as opposed to games that have insane graphics but no replay value. this is how i believe Wii might get the upper hand this round, gamers are sick of paying 400 for a sytem, 100 for peripherals, and 50 per game that has 5 hours of entertainment value. Wii is cheaper, their games will be cheaper, and while you may look like a fat ****** having convulsions when you play the games, they will probably be alot more fun.

then again, according to G4, the PS3 is gonna flop, sony is considering moving the release date back cause Blue Ray is proving to be totally unreliable, the discs have a 30% failure rate (as opposed to a mere but even highly unacceptable 3-5% failure rate of HD-DVD's), and they are having massive overheating issues, because all that information gets processed and loaded into the cache, and thus the PS3 has longer loading times (though the loading screen is really for cooling purposes) than the original PS1. i dunno how biased this info is, but its coming from my PS3 fanboy buddy (though he has a 360 and bought it just so he can have it for Halo3).


i really dont care. Im going to get a 360 come Halo3 time just cause, but aside from that i am pure PC Gamer now. Nvidia just released details on a 8800GT video card. you know how much asskicking a 8800 will be? its designed to run Windows Vista and take advantage of a Dual/Quad/Multi Core processor, so if you dont have Vista or a Multi Core CPU its useless.

Re: Almost Wii

id like an xbox 360 (especially after i saw NHL 07 *drool*).

more realistically ill probably get the wii for the multiplayer games i can play while drunk with friends.

but in reality, ill stick to PC gaming.

Re: Almost Wii

i'm buying a wii. nintendo said themselves "we're not trying to win the horsepower race. our goal with this system is to maintain performance with more efficiency, and to push the boundaries of nintendo's creativity"

from an interview. and according to the specs, the system will run about 40% cooler than the gamecube, and use less power

not to mention you'll be able to play gamecube discs on it, and be able to download every nintendo title for every nintendo system ever

plus the new controller is gonna set a new standard

Re: Almost Wii

i think there is some sort of laser thing in there too that will act as a cursor and/or shooting type thing.

they already talk about having some nunchuck controllers too.

i think you can use that remote for fishing, tennis, and golf (that i know of) when it comes to motion detection.

Re: Almost Wii

it's got a beam sensor for aiming, a la first person shooters.. but it's also got 3d spatial imaging via bluetooth connection, so the controller will be able to keep track of movements in 3d space, like sword swings, or steering wheel motion, golf club, baseball bat etc etc swings. but if a developer wants, they can program the game for the "classic controller" (see wiarumus' first attachment) which plugs into the port on the bottom of the "wii-mote" and allows it to function like a normal wireless controller

but i'm eager to try out the wii-mote... i mean, think about it... how many people do you know that move the controller around while playing a game? trying to dodge in a FPS, or a racing game, or trying to jump like that in a platformer or fighting game?

i dunno. only person i know that did that is my cousin. when he played Tie Fighter back in the day, he would lean like he was pulling massive G's. i used to make fun of him, like "dude, you died cause you didnt lean into it enough!"

i think thats going to be the key that will set the Wii apart from the other two consoles.

i know my buddy is getting one, i might as well, given they have good titles and not the normal pokemon/mario/dragonballz/zelda crap.

Re: Almost Wii

I would DEFINATELY like a 360 for Halo 3. I was a Halo junkie. But unless the price drops at least another $100, I wont. I can get a Wii for $250 brand new, and it wont be long until that drops to $199. Has anyone else noticed how the last 3 systems from Nintendo have all started at the same price? They always release around this time, and then drop to $199 after the Christmas rush. Talk about dedicated, and it's not like any of the systems have been slouches either. The Cube lacked heavy hitting titles, but that was not because the system was weak. Just the new Zelda game will be reason enough to buy a Wii. I'm serious, if anyone ahs been keeping an eye on it, it will probably take game of the year.

And why cant you be a PC AND console gamer? You have to admitt, it's much easier inviting buds over to play on consoles, because you do have more than 1 TV, each TV can support 4 people. Try doing something like a Halo lan with a PC game. And online games dont count because your buddies wont be there with you to have a beverage and cuss at when someone one shots you from who know where...

WRONG.

the only true way is to join the military, and ask to be shipped to iraq. or go emo and find a buddy with a few AK's and go ape**** on a middle american school.

You're not interested in what are, almost always, the most innovative games that come to market?
