It really depends on your budget first and then the games you want to play.
First, you need to check the games collection under each console, as each of XBOX , Playstaion etc have their very own specific games. Like, if you happen to fall in love with KILLZONE 1/2/3 (which you will!) then obviously you should pick up the PS 3. And trust me you will have no regrets.
But if you love the look and feel of Halo, the XBOX 360 is for you!
If you are more of a casual gamer, and don’t want to spend too much, every time you buy a game, I suggest you go ahead and buy a PS 2. Yeah.. seriously, totally worth it. The games don’t cost too much and the console too is inexpensive.
If you are into the family fun, or the kinda games that you and your friends like to play on the weekend jamming pretending to be rock stars?! Games like GUITAR HERO will excite you. And you should get the Nintendo’s Wii. Trust me it’s fun. 🙂
In the 3D category, there are not too many games at the moment, i suggest to wait till the technology stabilizes and gains a firm gripping in the industry. The Microsoft’s Kinect seems pretty cool, but really cannot be used by serious gamers, it has a bit of an annoying lag.
Whereas the Playstaion’s Move controller seems pretty accurate.
I don’t want to sound like a fanboy, but.. eh.. Playstation has a pretty cool line up for this year!
So, let the games decide which console is best for you.
Weigh your options …. and see you at the arena!! 🙂
