SquareGo: An Idiot's Guide to 7th Generation Consoles

SquareGo writes:

"At the time of writing, tomorrow is my birthday. As a gift to myself, I’ve decided to upgrade my collection of consoles. You might have noticed all my reviews are online, PSP, or First Impressions. I’m behind the times and don’t own a 7th generation console. So should I get a Wii, an Xbox 360 or a PlayStation 3?" (Culture, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

To me it sounds like you're pretty frugal.
Personally, I would choose a PS3.

It's the only console where your purchase pretty much gets you everything without the need of having to buy subscriptions, other DVD/BluRay players, or other expensive harddrives as you probably would if you got a 4GB XBOX 360.

You gotta make up your own mind, but the console which does seem to provide the best bang for your buck is obviously the PS3.

I wen't with PS3 because from day one, I had (was going to have) the Exclusives I wanted.

I personally don't care for Halo or Gears, so I personally have no reason to own a 360.

Add that PSN is free and the PS3 has saved me $300, that Xbox 360 owners had to pay to play online.

$50(now $60) a year over the Consoles life, is a LOT of money.

How many more games can you buy with that spare $300 i've saved?
