Guys. Upgrade PCs.

All games will eventually come out for PCs.

The Nvidia GeForce 7900 is the most powerful graphics ever and it can easily play Halo 2, GoW, and all that other stuff.

Get RAM, a video card, a sound system, and play with a much better experience than any console can provide. So much easier to control, so much more available.

Pcs are not only for games. They are for graphics, internet, communication, etc. Can a console go on eBay? Oh, and guess what, PCs can read every DVD, even a burned one. No console can do that.

If you have 3 integrated monitors on your desk, it will awe people a hell of a lot more that some box and a TV. But comp boxes are cooler BC of CASES. So customizable.

Xbox can do that but it's very limited.

Halo 2 is coming for PC.
Splinter Cell: Double agent is coming for PC.
UT2007 is coming for PC.
Gears of War will sure as hell be out for PC.

Nobody will leave Warcraft for anything. :p

Just keep the PCs and in the end, you'll save money, gain productivity, and your friends will be more jealous.

Most people already have PC's. They use it for work, hence why they get Consoles.
Consoles get outdated after about 6? Years when they new versions come out.
PC's, on the other hand, new, and better hardware comes out everyday, I rather not upgrade my computer, or get a console since I grew out of gaming, but it's much easier to get a console.

Lol. I'm going to get the Wii for parties, SSBB parties. And I'm also getting it for Zelda TP xD

No. Very few games come out for PC. And the Wii is not going to be able to have PC versions that will not be radically changed. The Wii is completely different, while the 360 and PS3 are upgrades (good ones at that). Lots of awesome games are console exclusive. So you can't just say upgrade your PC, although you should anyways, because PCs are better when upgraded.

I am getting a Wii basically because my kids have a GameCube and it is backwards compatible with all the games. It is also the cheapest of them all - downside though is that the Wii does not double as a DVD player.

Analogy:

PS3 - HVX-200
Wii - SDR-S150

The HVX-200 is $8000 with 2x8GB storage and does everything, but extremely expensive for everyday use and overkill for almost everything else. Also the media are $600 a piece.

Meanwhile, the SDR-S150 is $1200 with 4GB storage and lean, mean, small, and very portable, and 1/5 of the price. The storage are very cheap and therefore, it is suited for everyday use.

That's my analogy: Unless you're a hardcore gamer and got unlimited cash, you'll be scared by the $$$$$ of the PS3.

Not only that, but the PS3 is going to be more limited than even originally planned. Not as many got shipped out. At Gamestop, we had to call like 1/3 our reserving customers and tell them we weren't going to be able to fufill their reservation.

KC, my manager, said it was like telling someone they lost a loved one :D

W/e-

When compared to console games, the PC actually DOES have less games out for it. Console games are just more popular than computer games because computers are for much broader topics. Of course :D That's changing with time.

KillerChi-

Honestly, we sell a lot of 360 games, nowadays. I don't know if that's because the problem was fixed and people got new 360's, but the fact is that it seems to be selling quite well.

TH-

Trust me, your kids will enjoy the Wii just as much despite the lack of DVD player. The controls are just that much fun. The wireless ones, anyway. I hear they ARE making retro controllers with wires and such, but don't quote me on that. The only ones we were given at work were wireless.

HOWEVER, the wireless ones were a bit harder to use, since it's something radically different. You know how most people lean back and forth in racing games, just because they're turning the game? Well, unless you wanna run off the road :D You can't do that with the wireless controllers. As a matter of fact, very little turning is usually enough. But it requires more skill, which most gamers will appreciate. I hope.

Ps3 & 360

Hey !

The Wii is gonna be a flop, i mean it cant be good to play games like metroid prime ( one of the first games thats gonna be on Wii ) with those hand controllers, and its not really gaming, i mean the Wii is like the I-Toy, a happy little toy for kids. Wii is somthing for the little kids,

PS3 is gonna pwn because all the new games are gonna go for PS3, look at games like ;

Lair
Genji: Days OF the Blade
Calling all Cars
Resistance: Fall of man
Warhawk
NBA 07
MotorStorm
Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom
Cash Guns chaos DLX Play

And the X-box 360 is gonna be good for games like Fable 2, Oblivion and some race games ; Flatout 2, Need for speed Carbon << --- Carbon Sucks btw ( to short ) but the Wii is totally gonna flop

This is my opinion

I think that if you keep an open mind about the Wii than your opinion is respectable. But it seems you don't even give it a chance. The technology opens up new worlds of gaming, and, like it or not, it appeals to a broader audience. Also, it's got an unfair advantage: Wal-Mart backs it up. BIG TIME.

This is my opinion
I respect your opinion completely :)

However, please respect my opinion.

My opinion is that you're an idiot :)

First off, I wanna ask if you've PLAYED the Wii yet?

  • Yes? Alright then, you've got a VALID opinion. You've tried it and you don't like it. No harm, no foul.
  • No? Then don't talk :) I've played Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii. PS3 has great graphics and comes with a crapload of new stuff you can do with it... The Xbox in general has had a reputation for having better graphics, to my opinion. Definitely a good system.

    The Wii is a child's toy, though? Dude. You have no idea how many GROWN MEN AND WOMEN come into the store and stand there, for like... An HOUR, playing the SAME RACING GAME, just because they like the way it's played. It's not an eye-toy. Eye-toys are a series of games. This is a brand new system.

    ALSO! To my knowledge, Nintendo is coming up with classic controllers for those who don't like the other way of doing things. Meaning you can still use it like a regular controller. Wii is covering ALL the bases, baby. Don't screw with Nintendo :D

I gotta say this again... (Did I say it already? I think I did)

Nintendo cannot promote for crap. A WEEK before it's release date, and finally, you start seeing a FEW commercials about the Wii? The day AFTER it comes out, THEN you finally see commercials about the games? Morons... There was no build up. No suspense. Complete idiots in marketing :D

PS3 got such a hype because it was promoted well. They TOLD YOU what it was gonna be able to do. Well before it was ready for shipment, even. That's what you do. You tease them, taunt them with it's greatness! >D Gotta love it.

In my opinion, the Wii controllers are a + and a -.

For one, PS3 controllers are more or less the same. That's cool. Don't gotta remember new buttons or get used to a new handle, since I'm a big PS2 player.

BUT! The Wii gives you something new, something different. You get to have fun with that and finding stuff out with it. Nice.

Also, the controllers seem to work as memory cards, I believe. I'd have to ask to get more on this, so if I can remember, I'll question my boss tomorrow for my morning shift :D

I actually already knew about the Mii's, but I've yet to ask whether or not you can save GAMES to the Wii. Now that I think about it, I haven't looked at the thing up close and personal, so I don't even know if there are memory card slots :D On second thought, does Nintendo even do Memory Cards? PS does, and so... Does Xbox, I believe.

The Gamecube had mem cards. I believe Wii does too... it has an SD slot after all...

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1

    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain

    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
