    xbox 360. The graphics and multiplayer over xbox live are untouchable.....although I'm basing that on not playing either of the other two systems..but I dont have to ;)

          Well I voted WII for the concept and the gameplay, but you can't compare a Xbox360 and a WII (in fact I have both)

          It's two differents philosophy !

          The best is really to have both

            I say PS2. Its decent, cheap, and has a huge library.

            XBoxes are decent, but when you consider PS1 games, the library for PS2 is better.

            360s brick up too much. XBox live does on-line like no other, but it sucks to pay for a console, pay $60 for a game, and then pay monthly to play on-line.

            Wii is awesome, but doesn't have the library yet. Too many of the Wii titles are novelty, with few really being what the Wii seems to be meant for. They are there, but not in large enough numbers yet for me to buy. This will be different in 3 months though.

            PS3 is a monster with unrivaled power, but you can get more game for your buck with another system. The price is too steep, even though it is a bargan considering what it can do. From what I hear in reviews, it sounds like the PS3s power isn't really being tapped yet, so publishers might as well have released earily PS3 titles for PS2. In many cases, they are PS2 games that got pushed to PS3 by overzealous development teams.

            Final Fantasy XII is arguably the best looking game on PS2. Its been said that its the first and only game to use 100% of the PS2s capability (considering that is does slow up and get choppy in rare cases, I tend to belive that). It took until October 2006 (when FF12 was released) to use the full potential. I don't want to pay $600 for power I'm not using. When the PS3 comes down in price. I'll call it the best :)

              FYI, the WII will alsp play GameCube games (with GCN controlers and memory cards) so the library is a bit bigger.

              Yes the truely innovative ones are fewer in number but I think that's expected with a system so totally different from it's predecessors and compedators.

              I'm a bit disapointed with the quantity of games so far as well, but the ones they have are AWESOME from what I've seen and hard. Nintendo is more strict in licensing than the other consoles because they want to keep the quality of the games as high as possible. Hopefully their library will grow in the next few months.

              I've heard the same of Redident Evil 4 (originally designed for GCN and then ported to PS2). Either way, yes the game developers have barely tapped what that little box can do :-)
