Yahoo ranks the 6 major gaming systems as an evaluation of which is the best bargain for the holiday season.
I agree with the #1 pick and #2 picks, but not so much that the PS3 wound up all the way at #6. With the recent price drop- considering the Blu-Ray, Wi-Fi, and general multimedia capabilities you get in the package- a 40GB PS3 actually gives you a lot of bang for your buck.
I'm not sure if I would go so far as to pin this on bias. There has been a lot of anti-Sony sentiment from a lot of the press, but hopefully things are starting to turn around.
I was just watching a new video on XBL with trixy in New York at a Toy's R Us" event about the 360 Arcade. One dude was talking about how its a great console for its price and its simple privte nature(didn't wan't online for his kids) Just a pick up and play console free of a bounch of crap 6 and 14 year olds don't care about.
I was reading one of the comments in the site I forgot all about MSFT designing the 360 with PSP in mind thats strange indeed.
A person with common sense will know that the PS3 is the best deal...it's the most versatile and reliable console..of them all...nuff said..!!
It's a pretty good list, with a couple of exceptions.
I think the PS3 could be a spot or two higher.
And I think the 360 Arcade should make absolutely ZERO good deal lists - because it sucks. It should be replaced on the list by the 360 Premium system - which is a decent buy.
I can't believe as messed up as that list is, all you Sony fanboys do is b!tch that the PS3 is last. The fact that the PS2 is number because it still has ok graphics and a games library is retarded. Why not throw the freaking Dreamcast in at number 2 then? lmao.
It should only include next-gen systems and handhelds. I could care less where they all rank, but putting PS2 at #1?
Talking about NINTEDO FANBOY, can't you even accept that PS2 is the domination Playstation even x-box fanboys or any other fanboys on this site will agree that PS2 is the domination of games console, so why don't you just STFU and go dump you freaking face in the toilet to cool youself down
He thinks I'm a Nintendo fanboy. Have you seen my profile dipsh!t? LOL. Poor little fruit saw my "humorous" avatar and didn't have the sense to get it. Thank you for making sure that Sony fanboys look like complete idiots everyday. You are classic.
when was the last time you entered your local video game retailer and bought a dreamcast?
That one time I walked into my local retailer and bought a Dreamcast...
I never bought a PS2. Honest to God, I didn't have a PS2 till work made me in late 2006. Until then my entertainment center was packed with Dreamcast, Xbox, and random stuff.
I get your point, but just figured I'd mention that even though I have a couple PS3s and couple PS2s, I'd never consider buying one.
if i did not have my 360 Elite i would of got the 360 Arcade and the 120GB HDD witch will cost less than the Elite. i think the 360 Arcade is the best way 2 go if you want a bigger HDD. Microsoft should of just realest 1 console in 2 or 3 different colors, without the HDD, and give u a option on getting the HDD separate in different sizes like 20GB, 60GB & 120.
I think the best console to buy this year depends all on what the individual gamer wants, so keep an open mind and review the games available and coming soon. Play each console if you can, and review what titles are exclusive to that console. Look at its reliability, features, and what is planned for it in the future and then make your decision. I own all three because I like all of them, and I have kids too that play.
the PSP bundle, with the game, family guy and a mem card should've been ranked 2nd, wii 1st
that thousand years old PS3 pics with the concept controller...
Ps3 is the bang fo yo buck, you would know why if you knew all of its capabilities and of course BLURAY PWNS
My list would be is #
1. Xbox 360 20gb with the 2 games comes with it
2. Ps3 cuz of blu-ray and Wi-fi
3. The Wii cuz its so cheap and its fun for the kids.
4. The psp remote play, custom firmware and its comes with games on bundle.
5. DS very cheap and large library of games.
6. PS2 the reason why ps2 is in number 6 bcoz I already have one jk. What I mean is if a consumer would buy oone just buy a ps3 60gb.
I'm sorry but the PS3 should much higher, do these people not know all of things that it does out of the Box!?!
-Full Keyboard and Mouse Support
-Built in WiFi
-Built in HD (easily upgradeable to 300+ GB)
I'm sure theres more....
Yeah this list seems a little silly. The Xbox Arcade higher than the 40gig PS3?!
I'd say in terms of sales it will go something like this.
-Nintendo Wii - $249 (Maybe not the most sales, But the hardest to get)
-Xbox 360 Pro - $349
-Playstation 3 - 40gig $399
-Nintendo DS - $129
-Playstation 2 - $129
-Sony PSP Slim - $169
Once again. Sony secures three spots out of the list. 50% of the best deals are all Sony. It looks like Playstation is starting to stomp on the rest of this miniscule competition.
P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
Just because of reliability issues.
Regarding games, PS3 has a more diversify library than XBOX360 "NOW"
and also a lot of good games on the market "NOW"
Since y'all like that NOW word so much.
well its all about opinions ... but $400 for blue-ray is very cheap... $250 for a nice reliable console with motion sensors ... and $350-$400 360 for a HD DVD/ video game system ... i mean each has pretty nice features ... and different features... so if u have all 3 its a nice array of different features ... very cool
