OOoooooh the age old question. Well, your lucky I've come across your post. I've owned a Wii, have a PS3 and a Xbox 360. And the answer to your question varies. Xbox offers a MASSIVE community of players. MANY MANY games, and a wide spectrum at that. Con? It is going to cost you 60 bucks a year to have your Xbox 360 connected to the internet. PS3. Free internet, but it is kind of, well, eh. Un-reliable. Servers are quite horrible actually, and if you find yourself indulging in online gaming good server connection will be EVERYTHING to you. PS3 has excellent graphics though. Some exclusive games (games only for the PS3) but, as a whole not as big of variety as the X360. Wii. Wii is crappy I'd say. Wii is fun if your a family gamer. Playing with others is what the Wii is all about. Awful graphics and you could have issues with controller connections. If I had to pick one? Xbox 360 ALL THE WAY. The servers are reliable, excellent graphics, wide variety of games, MASSIVE amount of players, easy to learn controller. Unfortunately, either way you go, your pumping out at LEAST 250 $ for Games, console, online ability, and set up.
