Should You Buy An Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii Now?

Dan writes - "Once again, Hooray for price drops. Price drops are an important stage in any product’s life, but in the life of video games it can lead to a huge surge of new ownership.

All 3 of this current generation’s consoles have gotten a price drop recently and you may be thinking “Oh snap, I’ve got to get me one of these”. Well hold on there bro."

Depends on what your looking for in a console.

but you can certainly buy the games for it. Especially considering they will work in the soon to be released wii-u.

As for ps3 and 360. Go for it. Prices are cheap on the systems and games. They both have a great back catalog of titles. Even though most will only want to focus on the newer ones, there is nothing wrong with going back and playing some of the platforms finest.

Not to mention that we know absolutely NOTHING about what the future holds for either platform company it makes good sense. Get in on the action while the getting is good.

Since the wiiU is releasing soon and all...
But if you want to buy a cheap system for your kids, wii, or xbox 360 kinect would be the most ideal...
You don't want kids [email protected] up your PS3. I consider it a console focused mainly for adults and I Luv it!

I'd say PS3. It has a future still planned for it, with support confirmed for the next few years, while Xbox, it's uncertain if anything new or special is coming after Halo 4 and GoW Judgement. Along with plus offering you 15+ free full games straight out of the box, it's hard to go wrong.

Wii is basically dead, the Wii U will replace it completely with the aspect of backwards compatibility.

Going by this sites reputation I'm not surprised the PlayStation would be the better deal.

But Yeah, if you by the Assassins Creed III PlayStation bundle you get a 500GB Hardrive, Assassins Creed III the game (with 4 exclusive missions only on PlayStation) and a 30 day voucher to PSN+

So its pretty good Its not bad, all 3 aren't bad.

Btw after gears and Halo MS planning on releasing more AAA exclusive arcade titles and possibly some more F2P games as well as regular 3rd party games. Just to tie them over for there world wide launch of the new Xbox later in 2013.

I did that last gen with the XBOX, the upside is a large library of cheap games.

ronin4life1351d ago

The Wii is a great deal sure, but at this point one might as well wait for the wiiu and its full backwards compatibility with Wii games.

ChunkyLover531351d ago

Honestly I'd wait, unless you want a bunch of back catalog games.

ShaunCameron1351d ago

With the WiiU coming out next month, certainly not the Wii.
