    It surprises me this has not yet been asked (or I really can't work with the search tool) But if you had to buy a next gen console, which one would you pick first. If you are planning on buying more than one, answer with your favorite one. The rumors about the Apple logo on the PS3 site and the Nintendo partnership have been seriously discussed here, so it is not completely unrelated.

    Wii (I'm a creative kinda guy) and perhaps the 360 IF Halo 3 is good. read; not another Halo 2.

    wii for me.

    I may get a 360 at some point for halo, but I wouldn't do that for at least a couple more years; I really don't want to spend that kind of money for a game system when it wont even be my primary system. :cool:

    Like Plinkoman says a Wii for now and a 360 sometime in the next few years when the price goes down.

    wii wins hands down. Sadly. I voted 'none' as I can't afford xbox/sony prices.

    Wii! I've never actually bought a console, except for a used Super NES in 1998. I've always bought portables, because I'm a sucker for platform Mario games. But it's just so... cool... plus, I'll get to play all my platform Mario games!

    I love how the PS3 has one vote.

    The Sony guy in charge would probably break out some B.S. like, "Oh, they only think they want the Wii. They're obviously stupid consumers. They mean that they want the PS3. Consumers only want really good graphics. The interface can completely suck."

    i doubt i'll get any (maybe that will change with price decreases). although i think ps3 will be the best out of the 3, i would say i am most likely to get a wii.

    I have a 360, I love the thing. The Wii is tempting but I'll make up my mind when it is finally released, I'm not going to buy it just because it is made by Nintendo. The PS3 holds no interest for me, it is way too expensive in Australia AUD$1000, bugger that I'll buy a standalone Blu-ray or HD-DVD player when the time is right.

    None option is pretty useless as people who have no interest in a next-gen console thread wouldn't read it :p

    Seems like Apple users love the Wii, thanks to its Apple-style thinking and design.

    Haha! :D :D Well I'm a little surprized myself, I thought the PS3 is reasonable value for money *prepares to be killed*.

    Perhaps it's more than that? If Sony went the creative route instead of the same old route then I'd probably follow them instead. We're mac users, we're mostly educated. graphics mean less, we're more into the smart side of things. We're not apart of the super cool "l33t" folk who drive around modified granny cars spouting rubbish about how real car games look. perhaps? Who knows.

    I'd have bought a 360 if it offered me something new. instead it offers something tried and tested but in HD resolutions. Nothing wrong with that if there is a creative alternative. I just don't see the point in both the PS3/360 existing when they are so similar, in a cynical sort of way.

    oh, it is. But buying your own train is also reasonable value for money. think how much you'd save travelling long distances and renting it out to people. It's just the initial payment that puts people off. My own wind farm would be excellent value for money, would you mind buying me one?

    I'm not really that hard core gaming wise, so I'll be quite content just having a Wii. :)

    You know writing poll in the name of the title is pointless as it automatically says poll next to the name?
