Yeah, and the Wii bundle my friend bought came with a free racing game developed by Ubisoft, with the graphics of PS1 or maybe even worse...they put no effect in it at all. Anyway im going to sleep now fellow Australian, good night.

Uh... last I heard, EA and Crytek Studios were working on Crysis... NOT Ubisoft. So I don't really need to mention that I was referring to Ubisoft's current efforts with Wii since you made no point lol.

Crysis looks boring, no offence to alot of fans on LF but it looks like any old military shooter with good GoW style graphics.

GoW sucks though. Plus its runs of a diff engine so the graphics look alot diffrent. Crysis has one hell of an engine behind it.

Oh and sorry for the mistake on Ubisoft making Crysis

Excuse me ? GoW sucks does it ? I happen to own a 360 and have passed GoW and pretty much the whole majority of Xbox 360 gamers like me would agree its a hell of a great, amazing, fun as game. Also i don't think Crysis will be that big even if it does have nifty graphics, after all most games have more success on the far more superior Xbox 360, iv even read myself that the developers of Half-Life and Doom claim Xbox 360 is the dominate console or anything gaming of the seventh generation. It owns Wii, PS3 and PC.

@ Rogue Spy:

- I think he may have mistaken "GoW" for "God of War" instead of "Gears of War"... maybe, cause he's nuts if he's saying that Gears of War's graphics suck XD

- Gears of War is cool but it happens to be the only really decent thing on Xbox360 at the moment apart from Xbox Live itself. The Xbox360, at the moment, has very few defining games but it's still early days.

- No comment about Crysis, I personally don't care. I may play it since I've played pretty much everything else XD

- No offence, but what does the opinion of Valve and iD have anything to do with... well, anything?

- This whole idea of Xbox360 dominance is an illusion. The fact that the 360 leads is because it launched a year earlier than Wii and PS3. But when it all comes down to it, within 3 months and a couple of weeks, Nintendo has almost sold half as many units of Wii's as Microsoft has sold Xbox360s on a worldwide scale. Take note, Xbox360 has been selling for well over a year now.

Don't misunderstand me though, all I'm saying is that this seemingly strong dominance is very much in peoples heads.

You seem to have forgotten Oblivion...
And wasn't there already been a pole on this?(<-I'm pretty sure those words have already been said on this thread...)

Back to topic:I'll stick with my 360, the wii looks ok but I'm not going to buy one.
I'll probably just convince one of my friends to buy it and mooch game time off them.

I thought Oblivion was pretty damn overrated.... *looks around* plus this thread doesn't have a poll

Oblivion? Overrated? I didn't rate it, and I didn't get it because of a review or something I read online.
Oblivion might be overrated but it's still a fun game...

Twilight Princess is a hellova good, fun game too... but it's still not what I would consider a game that defines Wii.

Oblivion is the same way.

Speaking of which, does anyone know a good game just to sit down and play? Not anything like oblivion where you have to build up your character, just something that you can pick up and play without getting addicted to.

Quake 4

Half-Life 2
Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
Counterstrike: Source
F.E.A.R.
Halo
Gears of War

and a note: any game can be addictive. some genres are more addictive than others. turn-based strategy and rpg's are probably the most addicting types of games. real-time strategy and shooters tend to be the least addictive, especially if you play multiplayer matches, but if you really start getting into it, they can be just as bad as other genres.

the ones i mentioned have strong singleplayer experiences (except for HL2: DM and CS: Source), and its easier to turn away from those games than something like a turn-based strategy game in which you have this whole "just one more turn" deal going on.

I voted Xbox 360, as 1. It's the only one of the three I have 2. It has the most games that appeal to me, and 3. the Wii looks really daft.

I have completed basicly everything there is to do on Oblivion, and yes it's a heck of a GREAT game! man oh man is it good, and Mercid, daft means stupid and dumb, and nothing really gets threw or sinks in the Wii. Tons of great games are on Xbox 360 and soon to come, such as: Mass Effect, Assassins Creed, Halo 3, Bladestorm and alot more. I voted 360 coz i own one and its the best damn console out there at the moment...iv even read that the developers/creators of Doom and Half-Life admit that Microsoft's technology is far beyond Sony and that PS3 has failed to overcome being the next-gen king of consoles...in your face Sony, your arrogance and over confidence got the better of you! Still you hear alot more on 360 than PS3, despite PS3 being released a year later.

Those of you in Europe, Asia and Australia should check this out. As if we all needed another reason to hate Sony.

Thanks to Negative Sun for the link.

@ Rogue Spy: You know, the reason Valve and iD said what they said is because the 360 is just a PC in a console shell. Of course they're gonna find it easier to develop for and get things done for it. The cell architecture is extremely new and has pretty much undiscovered capability. But anyway, like I said before, what does what Valve and iD say have anything to do with anything? There have been quite a lot of developers who have picked the PS3 over the Xbox360 saying that it is superior too.

Oh and Bladestorm and Assassins Creed = PS3 as well.


But yeah, I do like the 360 over the PS3, the only thing good I can find about the PS3 at the moment is that it has Metal Gear Solid 4.


But in the end Wii just absolutely rocks

And assassin's creed is also coming out on the xbox360.

Some developers say very nice things, some developers say it's not their kind of console. It's pretty much exactly the same as how it's going with the 360 and PS3. The biggest difference I'm seeing with Wii is that smaller developers are flocking to it licky crazy and indie developers want to have their games on Wii. This may not seem like much to you, but this exactly how Sony grew so powerful in the first place.

And yes, I know Assassin's Creed is coming to 360, I was trying to say that two of those games you listed were cross platform games so it was pointless to name them.

I went to Six Flags and they had this thing called the wii experience it was this room where you could play the wii and it was really really fun!!! i just played golf and boxing and it was awsome! i also like the Xbox360 because of Xbox live and gears of war. theps3 sucks, compared to the wii and the 360 atleast. all that i think the wii has going for it is second life, and i wouldn't play that anyways because i vowed to never play online games again cause I always spend to much time on them and sit in front of the computer too long. but, yeah i would like to have a wii and a 360.
