(Wich is a huge pluss conisdering my gamecube just died... I CANT PLAY RE4!!! Wich I now have two copies of, because I thought my game was the problem... ugh.)

I'm getting the Wii the day it comes out. PS3 on the other hand... eh... I might have to wait. $600 is alot of money. I can make it in a couple months... but its still alot of money to devote to a system. Even though its as powerful, if not more powerful then alot of modern day gaming computers. (cough* xbox *cough)

All the Xbox is, is a computer. There is alot of options for developers... but ****... isnt it easier to do game design, map design, and mods on the computer than with a controler? I would rather put the $300 into my computer to make it to the level of the 360 than buy a counsol that does the exact same thing my computer can and does do. Its personal preference though... and to each his own... but seriously... why waste your money on games for the 360 when you can get the same games on the computer for $20 less.

Sure the Wii and PS3 are also computers... but it would be so much more expencive to upgrade your computer to do what both of those systems do, than make it comparable to the 360.

i was saying that they prepared the xbox 360 by offering cheap software to MAKE xbox games on a computer, not programs for your xbox....

all game consoles are computers.... you lose

Did I not say that all game counsoles are computers in my post? I was simply stating that to make a Xbox comparable computer is alot cheaper than that of a PS3. You get more for your money.

Its incredible the immaturity of people these days. Everything is a win/lose contest. Grow up Clause. For someone to send me a IM on AIM flaming me, and trying to always out do me is extremely immature. I dont care if I get banned for saying this, but if you didnt want my input and the input of others, dont make the stupid thread.

this statement obliterates your entire arguement. i shows clear evidence that you have no idea what you are talking about

for 100 bucks a year you can get xna tools which allows you to develop and upload independent games to xbl.

http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/12002/...-for-Xbox-360/

now you can use source sdk along side it and make a GOOD independent game. lets see ps3 top that with their uncentralized online feature.

Actually I'm impressed of how far microsoft has come in such short time with their video game systems. I'm dissapointed in sony for the 3rd time and thats too many for me. First I had a playstation, then ps2, and the ps3 looks like its gonna suck for too much money. I had a mini disc player and that was good until good mp3 players came out about little while later. So I my next system I want is 360. I dont hate nintendo just that the only reason why I want it is for classic games and things like that. If they have a normal controler for the wii I would buy it.
