Wii People vs PS3 People

wii-vs-ps3

A comparison of the scenes from the Japanese release of the two consoles. Probably few then would have predicted just how one-sided this would eventually turn out…

    I'm a westerner so I also own a 360 which I use as a coaster for my Wii.

    The reason I have a PS3 is for whenever GoW III gets released. The reason I got a 360 was for Ninja Gaiden II. The reason I got a Wii was for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes.
    And yet I play the PS2 and original X-box more often ;_;

    I find those picture hilarious...

    and I myself am not a hot Japanese girl nor a fat Japanese guy (though I do have a PS3, I'm very much more that person that you might rarely see playing a 360 (in Japan) but always seen in the U.S.

    the problem with the wii is that it doesn't have many good games, sure there's zelda and wii fit/sports but those only have limited replay value. The wii fit it's niche of families/older pl...... you can't compare it to the ps3 nor the 360 because it literally is a different type of gaming console. And in japan ps3 > 360

    I'd be more interested in seeing the stats for usage of Wiis. I'd bet over half of Wiis are covered in dust within 2 months of purchase...

    This is idiotic, that photographer is so biased. He deliberately sought out fat people buying PS3s and women buying Wiis, like it's not ever the opposite way around. He doesn't even wanna portray the ignorant manchildren who support the Wii.

    I know several thin and relatively attractive girls who like the PS3 and want one for themselves, those photos are clearly taken by a dumbass Wii fan.

    Not really surprising, the Wii is geared towards casual gamers, and people curious about getting into gaming. Believe it or not, a lot of people, women especially, think that video games have a high learning curve, so the Wii is right up their alley.

    Of course, with the runaway success of the PS3's LittleBigPlanet, and its appeal to both sides of the spectrum, perhaps there will be a shift, but it's hard to justify the $500 for that.

    The PS3 has a lifespan of 10 years.

    That's because that's how long it'll take the PS3 to catch with the Wii and 360.

    I actuallu just sold my PS3 yesterday and got $200 cash after I heard the laser will die in about 5 years. Plus, the blue ray didn't impress me and all the games I wanted to play were available for or exclusively on the 360.

    Wise choice. If you wanna play games, do yourself a favor and get a Wii or 360.

    Unlike a certain RtardHiro who wants proof of how the PS3's failing when it's already all over the internet. I see somebody doesn't read the news about the video game industry.

    Well Well Well
    There is one reason why Wii is the winner.
    It's in the numbers:

    Not even the ps3 & the xbox combined can top the sales of the wii
    Too bad the ps2 isn't on that chart.

    And you know, there really is as much fanboyism in the console wars as in the Mac-PC war.

    I'd get X360 just for IDOLM@STER and Ace Combat 6.. Other than that, IDK.

    I have no targets to PS3 though... Maybe PSP would be nicer instead. (Macross Ace, and the upcoming IDOLM@STER SP and Hatsune Miku -Project Diva-)

    DS only have a game which feature Miku, sigh.

    Wii/PS3/X-Box 360 all fail since none of the manufacturers will allow eroges to be ported.

    I'll just stick to my PC . . . .

    Of course women go for wii since their wages are usually are lower than men. I don't get why ps3 price still hasn't gone down. Blu-ray players are now $150 they need to bite the bullet cut the prices, admit in losing the battle, and focus on the next console and games for profits.

    PS3 - Otaku with too much money and single lonely night could effort.

    PS3 People = Men (stereotypical male video gamer)

    And yeah, what happened to the 360 xD.

    Why are people still buying a PS3? It's already failing. People who say otherwise are idiots or just Sony fanboys who can't accept that fact.

    Beacuse some people like good games? And not shooters and sport games?

    You want sports and shooters, you buy a X-Box 360.
    You want....interactiveness, you buy a WII
    You want RPG's, fighters, japanese and anime based games, you buy a PS3.

    Except that right now, thanks to Microsoft's willigness to throw around money, the 360 actually has more japanese RPGs, anime-based games, shooters and fighting games than the PS3. Even FFXII and Tekken 6 are multiplatform now.

    Not what I expected when I bought my PS3 ;) Fortunately the whole thing doesn't bother me that much. I'd love to play some of the JRPGs the 360 has, but not enough to actually buy the system. Most of the games I want are released for both platforms anyway.

    Also, what exactly makes the Wii more "interactive"? In my experience, most Wii games are more simple and offer LESS methods of interaction than the average PS3/360 game. The only difference is that you're waving your arms around like an idiot instead of simply pressing a button or moving an analog stick.

    I didn't have something to write for WII, so I went with the first thing that poppoed in my head. Heance, "interactiveness". But I think the WII games are lame, and not for gamers at all

    There ARE good Wii games, but Nintendo needs to get more 3rd party developers REALLY on board, and more quality control on these 3rd party titles.

    I mean, I rather prefer pick-up-and-play games. What else would you call the original Super Mario titles?

    Game library wise, the PS2 is still killing all the new gen consoles. Neverminding their huge lead, they still put out more RPGs than all the new consoles combined. Which one will eventually come out ahead remains to be seen.

    Personally, even as someone who predominantly plays RPGs, I think the Wii is the better console against the 360 and PS3. Granted, I think the 360 will gain on the Wii rather quickly at the current pace, and the PS3, well, there will be a total of 4 games that I'll play on it by the time FFXIII is released.

    Innovative gameplay, I think is what someone was going for with the Wii. The 360 and PS3 use the same controller style that's been in place since the SNES, which severely hampers the way in which you interact with the game. Frankly, it tends to make even the best games a bit stale. Slightly better graphics don't compare to revolutionary gameplay.

    But it only counts for as much as you can actually take advantage of the hardware.
