Like I said most of the Wii games are really not that good. If I got a Wii for christmas I believe the only games I would have would be: Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, Super Smash Bros Brawl, Dead Space, Manhunt 2 (as much as it sucked...), Monster Hunter 3, and the new mario game. (Not galaxy.)

360... Still nothing.

PS3 has every game I want. But now I don't own one and I plan to keep it that way because right now Money is more important than games. (Even though I cheated myself with Tekken 6 for PSP.)

As for the number of units exist on the market today... I have this to say. At any one moment a single game can reach up to 100% of the consoles out there. It is just like playing an online game. Sometimes you have an amazing kill streak and other times.... You just can't even aim your gun correctly.

I don't know why people pay so much attention to units sold over the minor details. And you know what they say. It is the little things that get ya.

So the console wars should be based off of personal opinions?

What the hell are you talking about? Wouldn't the most units sold kind of point to a winner? And then if the sales for the games are also high, doesn't that back it up even more?

The console wars ARE based off of personal opinion.

Regarding your numbers argument... that would mean Wii is the best console this gen.
Can you honestly tell me with a straight face that the fucking WII is the best console this gen?

We're simply going to go in circles if we're only going by our own opinions though. For example, I would say that the Wii is a better console than the PS3.

I'm not trying to argue which console has the best games. I'm simply trying to look at which console is winning this time around.

Console wars are definitely personal opinion. That is why this thread has gotten no where after 184 pages. I know I, for one, would rather get shot four times in the genitals then cede that Wii is winning/has won the console war. I admit they have several neat games (yes yes, zelda and mario are pretty nice) but you are honestly saying that if a magic genie popped up and said you could have a Wii or a PS3, free of charge, you would go with the Wii? Really?

There really aren't that many games that I'd want on the PS3. The Uncharteds look interesting, same with MGS4, but that's it. And I could easily go on without playing them.

The only thing that might tempt to get a PS3 over a Wii is if I was only allowed to have one console, and I wasn't allowed to pick a 360. Although I am certain that I would have picked the Wii over the PS3 in 2006 and 2007. It'd be a tough decision to make for 2008 and now.

The Wii/360 combo works perfect for me.

The PS2 has sold over 220 Million units... Do you see a rise in game sales? I don't. It is just like I said before. Unit sales don't matter. It is the quality of the game created for it.

There are a lot of personal opinions in here but there are quite a few facts in here. If you take a look at some key arguments there is shit that some people don't know about the PS3, Wii, and even the 360. We make several arguments and we all like to point out a few things here and there to "open people's minds" supposedly.

Good for you. +1 point!

So far El is winning!

But just as W2L said before, anyone can say the same about any game. It just depends on the quality of the game to YOU.

And that's what its all a bAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOWOUT!

I agree, the PSP has more support for homebrew than the DS. But sadly.... there is not much to talk about with handhelds... Discussion over. DS can not do everything the PSP can do. (/PSP Vs DS)

For myth: Then why don't you ignore this thread? AAAAHHH YOU CAN'T!!!! AHAHAHAHAHA!

I'd say it's the quality of the games. Once again I haven't seen anything stellar for the PSP, but I haven't looked much at all. What are the best titles for the PSP?

DS has a shitload.

- Tetris DS
- Mario Kart DS
- New Super Mario Bros.
- Super Mario 64 DS
- Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
- Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure
- Harvest Moon DS
- Pokemon!!! (yeah I still like them. and with the remakes of Silver and Gold coming out, I'm even more excited!)

My guess would be that the new Zelda is also good. And when are they going to freaking make a Super Smash Bros for the DS.

For psp, you got stuff like

- resistance retribution
- killzone liberation
- little big planet psp
- gran turismo psp
- grand theft auto liberty city and vice city stories
- ratchet and clank size matters
- assassins creed bloodlines

So I think there are pretty good games on both

Psp games always seems to be mini PS games, whereas the DS tends to stand out with its own unique titles.
