(*)BEFORE READING!!!(*)~ THIS IS NOT A COMPARISON. I AM SIMPLY STATING WHY THE PS3 COSTS WHAT IT DOES, WHY THE WII DOESN'T HAVE BETTER GAMES, AND WHY ALL THE DAMN HYPE SHOULD CALM A LITTLE BIT! Why is it that everywhere we look, everyone says the Nintendo Wii is the ultimate console; wasting all the others. I'm going to attempt to cut the wii back in size and prove that not only does the ps3 not suck its actually better. hence the price. I have a Nintendo wii. Its not good. I will name the top 5 wii games in my eyes and say why it would have been better elsewhere: 1- Twilight Princess 2- Paper Mario 3- Metroid Prime 3 4- Resident Evil 4 5- Mario Party 8 I really don't care if you agree with the order or if you think some other game deserves to be up here. Not the point. Pay attention. I will start with Twilight Princess. It was designed for the GAMECUBE; but came to the wii with tacked on controls. Paper Mario was also originally designed for GAMECUBE. Metroid Prime 3 was not designed for Gamecube, however it is stated in reviews that it is 'just another GAMECUBE prime game with worse controls'. Resident Evil 4 is pretty obvious. A simple port from the GAMECUBE version (Umbrella Chronicles are actually dumbing down the graphics from #4). Mario Party 8 was an okay game based around the wiimote. It was just another GAMECUBE Mario Party game with better controls but worse game play. My friend and I have been talking about this for sometime. Wondering why everyone is hyping the wii so much. Have they even tried it. Or are they just covering up from a bad purchase? I personally would rather watch someone play ps3 than play my wii. I hear all sorts of criticisms toward the PS3 on forums. Almost none to the wii. I hear things like: -The controller makes the console awesome!!! Playstations sucks! The controller isn't that revolutionary. PS3's controller can do everything the wiis can except point. -Graphics don't matter. Gameplay makes the game. I would trade all four of my wii games for almost any ps3 game. The gameplay is awesome. -Wiis online is organized. In the future it will be awesome. Newsflash! The reason the PS3 has internet browser, demos, movies, trailers, game play add ons is because it is already taking responsibility for its claims. Nintendo makes all these claims about wii. None of which have been fulfilled. (ex. Wiiconnect24, you wont have to worry about updates, as you sleep it will automatically download as you rest. In reality, you have to confirm the update before it downloads. Kinda pointless for wiiconnect24. Wake up in the morning, "yes wii update! time to for it to download!") -Its so pricey! Don't sh*t yourselves. I'm Canadian. 280 for the wii, 512mb memory, no DVD, sh*tty games. 550 for ps3, all you get is hours and hours of free online, awesome demos to keep you busy for hours, 60gbs memory, graphics, and a BluRay DVD player which costs 200 dollars on its own. It is pricey. But its worth it. When the ps3 doesn't have 120x the memory wii has, they cancel the free stuff in the shop, and dis include the DVD player. Then i will admit the ps3 is overpriced. This concludes my rant. Shud up about the wii, be open minded you Nintendo fan boys. I wasn't at first either. Took someone else to open my eyes now I'm passing the favor. Play one before you judge it. The ps3 is the future, the wii is the fad.
