The problem with the PS3 is that it tries to be a computer instead of a gaming console, which is retarded because I could have my computer up-to-date for less than $600. The fact that you can't upgrade the PS3 and it's built using outdated tech (my computer standards) means it's essentially a waste of money that can't capitalize on the newest developments. PC gaming will always be a step ahead of consoles in graphics when the consoles come out and the gap keeps getting bigger exponentially every year as the PCs improve but the consoles don't. This is what Sony fails to see and this is why the PS3 itself will fail.

The Wii I like because it doesn't try to be more than it should be. It has enough in graphics that it doesn't look like ass and it tries to be a fun system that anyone can pick up and enjoy. It's cheap too, for the price of a PS3 I can pick up the Wii, extra controllers, games and spend some money on the Virtual Console. Downside to the VC of course is that I can get 1000 times the selection for free via ROMs, it's just illegal. Though the Wii has some great games coming for it soon, Super Mario Galaxy is probably the first Mario title since Mario 64 that I'm actually interested in and Super Smash Brothers Brawl looks hella fun. Overall, there's about twice as many games for the Wii that I'm interested in than the PS3 or 360.

As the 360, it'll attract the multiplayer gamers who are cool enough to run around spawn-camping but not cool enough to actually use a mouse and keyboard like the smart people do. When 360 games can hook up with PC games online, the PC gamers will be at the overall advantage simply because a mouse moves faster than an analog stick. That aside, the 360 is also the refuge for guys who want to play their friends online but don't have the funds to buy a state-of-the-art gaming rig and install all the crap. Good thing about a console is that most of the time it's plug in, insert disc and go. 360 will pick up the more hardcore multiplayer gamers.
