OK, so e3 has come and gone... and there's been a lot of cool stuff shown (from nintendo) and a lot of bullshit (from sony). So which console(s) do you intend to buy?

There's 3 votes per person, so rich bastards can put them all down. No "consoles are shit, pc owns" comments please. if you dont intend to get a console, just vote none and be done with it.

for me it's xbox 360 and wii, no question about it. as far as im concerned sony have seriously fucked up.

No consoles for me, pc's OWN!

But seriously. I won't be buying one myself but i am 100% sure that the house i'm moving into at uni will have all 3. I want a PS3 for RPG's, an XBOX for cool games and a Wii for party games.

If i got told i coudl have anyone of them for free i would get a (PS3 and sell it to buy a) Wii. Wii looks really fun and has alot of potential with games. i thought the DS was a shit idea to begin with but its actually really fun cause its innovative.

A Wii.

Maybe one of the others too, only time will tell.

But I will surely get a Wii no matter what.

Gotta catch 'em all, is my motto.
I need every console with a (real) Final Fantasy on, thus PS3 is on the list.
You can't really call yourself a gamer if you don't want to own a Revolution.
The Xbox has some really neat games coming up, but my interest in it has dropped a lot since I saw that the Shadowrun game developed for it would be a damn CTF FPS, so I'm not sure about it anymore.

Depends on how good the Mistwalker RPGs are going to be, I'd rather get them that yet another Final Fantasy. Plus Lumines is going to be on XBLA ^_^ So I don't even have to get a PSP anymore ^_^ So X360 is likely, as is the Revo. PS3 is going to have to pull some big tricks out of the bag to persuade me.

Definitly the Wii

The 360, did not seem that great. The controls irritated me, and the games out so far, seem pretty substandard.

The PS3, the ONLY thing that MAY make me get it is MGS4, but there is no way I am spending over £300 for it.

The Wii, I just have to get, if not only for SSBB.

Wii will be my first console. Once the PS3 finally drops in price I'll buy one of them too.
I will NEVER EVER, however, even consider buying a xbox 360.

Microsoft blows.  If anything, I'll probably get an original X-Box for a select few games and maybe eventually break down and get a 360 in, like, a year when they're cheap as fuck.

I'm getting a Wii for sure and keeping it so I can play it for hours on end.

I'm buying two or three PlayStation 3s when they come out for the sole purpose of selling them on eBay.

MGS 4 is going to be on the Wii as well.

Haha.

At least there's a high chance it will be.  With Snake's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it seems that Konami will also be releasing MGS 4 on the Wii, since I have seen the game title on a few Wii game queues.

I'm definently getting the Wii. Since you are gonna be able to get all the old SNES and NES games to it. I don't get much console games these days but I really miss my old Super Nintendo and the games I had.

I've already got a 360, and I majorly <3 that. Oblivion, GRAW, and COD2 take up all my time (mostly Oblivion  ;D ). Arcade is a dream... Geometry Wars is uber-addictive, and if Lumines really is coming out for Arcade, then I'm perfectly set.  :D

All next year, I'll be saving for Wii. If I can get MGS4 for $500 less, and still get to have Super Smash Brawl and whatnot on the same console, then it's a win-win. No need for PS3 if the only game I want for it is on Nintendo...
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

More fun playing it on the console with a real controller, on your television, rather than on the PC.
