Thanks again - anymore comments welcome.
i think the ps3 is better but from what you say the wii probably will be a better choice for you. the wii is pretty much a console for kiddies and girls.
Or people who want to play games in a different way.
Even old blokes
yeah, just in general if you look at the games available they are mostly cutesy and girly. look at the most popular game for it which i think is wii fit. that is so obviously targeted at the dieter and it is mainly women who are into dieting.
Verdict from a 45 year old guy with three kids 13, 10 and 7
Wii - all four of us can play together, the games are fun and not too hard, good for getting excercise for me and the kids, games not too hard, won't get bored when competeing with each other, when friends of all ages visit they join in with the fun
PS3 - faster harder games in comparison, no much movement involved so ideal for couch potatoe, limited people can play - mainly one player but you can join your friends when you link up to their PS3 over the internet, a lot of free demos to download, internet access, dvd player, listen to music etc
the choice is yours
the kids now spend more time on PS3 than Wii
I know what you mean - Gerbil! I am starting to wonder myself as they are sat plonked in front of the tv at the minute.
We often use the ps2 to play games as a family such as Singstar or Buzz. Problem is that some of the newest Singstars don't seem to be coming out on PS2 - I know you can get Queen, but we prefer the mixes of different songs. I thought it might be nice to have a completely different console in a Wii, so we can still do Singstar, etc on the PS2 but then may be jump about a bit too with a Wii. They love Super Mario on their DSs too and Animal Crossing.
Thanks everyone - you really are a great help.
Also your Buzz controllers will also work with PS3 Buzz games (you can have up to 8 players on PS3, great family & friends fun)...
The girls will love watching music videos from the Vidzone (1,000's to choose from)...
Also the web browser on the PS3 is handy if someone else is using the PC/laptop, keeps everyone happy.....
