Are You A PlayStation 3 Or Wii Fan?

Sony's new PlayStation 3 video game was once the top dog in terms of video game console sales and now it's considered the underdog.

Despite the buildup and hype around its arrival in November, the PS3 has been outsold so far — at a rate of almost 2-to-1 — by the Nintendo Wii, according to USA Today.
In February, the Wii was the top-selling console video game system with an estimated 335,000 sold, outpacing the Microsoft Xbox 360 (228,000) and the PS3 (127,000), according to The NPD Group.

You all know that We Love the Wii so there is no contest here, but I am still shocked that the Wii has been able to keep its stamina up for so many months.

Oh, and alot of people are saying there's alot of bugs in the PS3, but so far we haven't had any problems and we've had ours for a few months, it actually runs flawlessly *knock on wood* lol

I personally LOVE the Wii myself, but my husband has the PS3 and he adores that, I do see that in time the PS3 will become phenomenal, and that's fine , because I am waiting for some Final Fantasy! But the Wii is great for when we have our friends over , it's a great party system. Plus I love my Zelda!

The Wii is the kind of system you play in a group with your friends, unless you've got Twilight Princess [of which I heard the Gamecube version is actually better.] The PS3 isn't a great system because at this point they're just not really sure what they're doing. Too many bugs, I'll wait a few years [or until Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out for it]. Actually, I think I'm having some sort of gamer crisis right now. I'm going through all my old PS1 and PS2 games, and getting older games and playing them. Devil May Cry is still awesome.

I absolutely love the Wii - such fun games. The PS3's games are horrible but BluRay is so much better than standard DVD's that I've kept it around.

Wiiiiiiiii. I have to admit at first I was really disappointed by nintendo changing from the revolution to the Wii. I sat there and was like "wtf?!" but it's still the bomb.

The Wii is just so much more interactive and family-friendly. And totally me too, StefaPie. I rock at Wii Bowling.

Xbox 360, please and thanks! Wii for Twilight Princess and bowling... but that's it. When they come out in lime green, sure I'll get a Wii(it would match my 360 this way). Still, it'll be a 300 dollar Zelda playing machine. PS3 if Blu-ray becomes the must have format, and that's all seeing how all the "exclusive" games are coming over to the 360. I think right now I'm just on a Microsoft high thanks to Halo beta which HAS to be coming out soon! I bought Crackdown to play it, come ON Bungie!

Before I got my hands on either one, I was allll over the PS3. Seriously, I would get into huge arguments with my friends about how the Wii is going to be terrible etc etc. But then I did a lot of video game reviewing between the two once they hit the market, and I have to say the PS3 is a terrible system. It crashes, it's unreliable, it's entirely too expensive for how little of the promises it delivers. The Wii is adorable, it doesn't hold a candle to the PS2 [which I'm a die-hard fan of] but it's much more affordable, it has a lot of great party games, it has massive appeal to people of all ages, and plus, come on, party games! Wii over PS3 ANY day. -JR
