My 360 sits unplayed unless I have been drinking. It really hasn't impressed me all that much. Yes the HD games look sweet but blah, game freezes. I am looking forward to the Wii.

My time is better spent playing WoW....damn.

If I had to choose a console, it would be the PS3. Sony has always had better titles than Nintendo and the Halo Box. (...oh, wait, you mean XBox had other games?)

Still the PC is a helluva lot more bang for your buck, and you can play games that you have to use your brains (not just your thumbs) with on it. I have yet to see a good true rpg on a console.

There was an interview in yesterday's USAToday with the new President of Nintendo America, Reginald Fils-Aime, talking about WII versus the other new systems.

He makes some interesting points, especially towards target markets and market share goals.

and that is why I'm going 1/2 with you on it, because I simply need to see this. Not since the days of using the gun for Duck Hunt has technology's true potential been as realized as it will be with the Wii.

I own a 360. They are a few decent games, but it still suffers framerate loss and all that BS they said wouldn't happen (as usual) and I watch more DVDs than actually game on it.

Maybe I should actually bother to finish Oblivion...
