    Go with a 360.

    I was stuck in the sameeeeeee position as you a year back.

    I wanted to strangle myself in case I made the wrong decision.

    I went with Wii.

    Bad choice. Childish games if you know what I mean.

    Go with a 360. Then save up your Christmas money from other relatives to buy a Wii later.

    you should take a 360.
    If you don't put in the position of a tower it wont scratch your disc. Normally, the new 360 don't make the rrod.
    The 360 have more good games then the other console

    Yeah the whole pay to play online is a major letdown.

    Im getting a 360 (hopefully). My parents wnet x-mas shopping yesterday and i heard from my sister that i got 360. Whats a rrod by anychance?

    P.S. $50 really isnt much for online services. ecspecially if your paying for a year.

    A pc costs more than a 360, and in some cases when you want as good quality of a shooter as a 360 has, it will cost a lot more.

    RROD is red ring of death, a kinda lame coined term by people who get the 3 LEDs flashing on their console when it stops working. According to the large stack of xbox360's my cousin has, it looks like it is still very common.

    I own 2 360's and both still work fine but I don't figure they will last forever. The first one I owned did the red ring sometimes but eventually I just got rid of it because it was annoying to power it on 3 times to get it to boot up. It never froze in games though.

    If you want reliability, get a ps3..if you want a fun party game machine (eg more than 1 person at a time will usually be using it) get a wii, if you want the most popular system out get a 360.
