    The last gaming consoles I had were the Nintendo Gamecube and the PS2.

    I'm thinking about buying one. My friends are recommending the PS3 but I wanted the Wii (For Zelda). But I've seen some kinect demos on youtube and it looks like the best of the 3.

    So which one should I get, what's the best deal and is it worth waiting for the next generation of consoles to come along?

    Depends on what kinda gamer you are. Online gaming then the 360 is a good bet. The next gen consoles will take a while and even when they do come they will be overpriced. TBH capability wise the 360 and ps3 are equal, the only thing to consider is, if your freinds are all on psn no point getting a 360.

    The xbox has the edge with the kinect which is simply amazing. The ps3 does the job for me as majority of my friend have the console.

    Do you have both and can you use the kinect on any game or only those that are Kinect capable?

    I'm not really looking to get involved with online gaming, I have an addictive personality and will end up becoming a gaming hermit if I do.

    I just like fighting games, racing games and sports (football) games. I'm not really a big first person shooter fan so I'm not really looking for Call of Duty type games.

    I was a big fan Tekken and Streetfighter. Are they still making these games and are they any good?

    From the things I have heard, Kinect is pretty bad same with move(i have the move somewhere in my house and haven't use it), motion gaming is pretty bad all-around.

    You should'nt purchase Wii bcz Nintendo will launch Wii-U Console this holiday and most of the games(Wii games) will work with it.

    Personally if you want more exclusive games(more variety) go with PS3, Online(USD50+ a year for 360:angry: ) and Kinect go with 360, Wii simply don't buy it you'll be wasting your money as for the reason stated above.

    I don't have any of the consoles now, but before I had them and my favorite was PS3.

    Ps3 would be my choice, it gives you much more features than a xbox/wii. And Ps3 also has better exclusive games than the other two. (there is also Ps3 move which is like the Xbox kinect)

    PS3.. Why? Blu Ray player... MEMBERSHIP IS FREE.. You don;t have to to pay for membership like in Xbox.

    Wii? HELL NO.. Costly... You can just get a PS3 move which is a motion sensor device..

    @chandtara You really thought @Mercenary was going to go out and buy any of these? He just wanted to be one of the 'cool' kids talking about games. :)

    Exactly!

    But in all seriousness I dont really enjoy these new style of immersive games like Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto. I much prefer pick up and play games like Mario Kart, Ridge Racer, Street Fighter, etc.

    The only sort of immersive games I enjoy are role playing games and even then I only really like Zelda which is why I'm inclined towards getting a Wii-U

    Im on the xbox right now simply because my mates are on it. Ive played the ps3 and its darn good aswell and my favourite game of all time Ratchet and clank is a ps3 exclusive unfortunately:( The fact that i can play copied games on the 360 is the deciding factor.

    Pointing at exclusives to justify one console over another is silly. For example xbox has Halo and Gears of war.

    You thinks so but i dont. Microsoft has a extensive list of exclusive games aswell and just like sony its padded out with a lot of shitty titles. Before sony kicked the crap out of everyone in the console wars but 360 v ps3 has been done to death and there is no winner, just a stalemate with two equal consoles.

    exactly. thats why going with the exclusive is the way to go. Also, the console which your bro, cuzs and friends play the most.
