It all depends on what you're looking to play. If you like the movement that the Wii requires, Nintendo is for you. But the Xbox also has kinect. Microsoft, to me at least, is seeming very expensive and is up to $60 a year for gold. Ridiculous. Sony costs a lot less, but if you want to talk to just your friends during a game your screwed. Neither sony nor Nintendo can provide that. Socially, Microsoft is better. But Nintendo & Sony are less expensive.
