Hey I'm having a hell of a time deciding between the xbox 360 and the wii. This will essentially be the first console I ever own, and I will only get one and not both (so dont even try ). Here's what I see as pros and cons of both systems for my particular use: Xbox 360: + amazing graphics + can stream stuff from computer to TV + xbox live is apparently amazing + hard drive option + HD capable - accessories are RIDICULOUSLY overpriced - 130$ to get wireless??? - it's unreliable and overheats (although warranty is 3 years, which is nice) - many of the games seem redundant, although that may be just my opinion considering I have barely played any X360 at all Wii: + slightly cheaper + controllers are awesome + has many classic games such as zelda and mario (which I used to play on game boy and have always loved) + wireless built in - no hard drive option - multiplayer online no good? Not sure about this one - cannot stream media to TV - No HD! Now I don't know if my pros and cons for both are accurate, nor if I missed any. Like if the Wii could stream media to TV and had great online gameplay capability, that would already put it up a couple of notches in my book. It's lack of high quality graphics, though, bothers me: is this really an issue? Does the Wii's output appear ugly and fuzzy? For the Xbox 360, is the harddrive really that necessary? I don't want to lay down too much on this console and I find the premium set expensive for essentially a 20 gig hard drive, which doesn't even seem that big once put into perspective. Does the hard drive really do that much or is the Arcade Xbox 360 still ok as a purchase? Thanks alot and any comments are appreciated!
