New Console
« on: November 24, 2013, 01:30:47 PM »
On Black Friday, retail stores have the Xbox 360 4gb for $99 and the PS3 250gb for $149. Which do you guys prefer and why? I'm thinking it's time for a new console. I don't really like the list of games for the Wii U. There are tons of good games that you can play on those consoles that are not offered on Nintendo.

Also, I purchased Mario Kart Wii yesterday so maybe some of us can get into that, in case Excitebots fades away. :)

They're both pretty similar, although, if it were me, I'd probably go with the PS3.  It may be my anti-Microsoft bias talking, but I think it's a bit more reliable than the 360, and has slightly better exclusives.  To be honest, unless you're a diehard Halo fan, there's not much on 360 that you can't get on the PS3.  Whereas the PS3 has the God of War, Resistance, and Uncharted series exclusives.  Other than that, though, both consoles have A LOT of the same games (many of which are, sadly, not available on the Wii).

To me, though, the Wii U is starting to look more and more enticing, now that it's finally getting some games out.  Super Mario 3d Word, Pikmin 3, and numerous others have my interest, and there's going to be a new Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros soon (they'll likely be released sometime next year).  Of course, Excitebots 2 would seal the deal for me, but that hasn't been announced yet. :(
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

Yes, one can dream of an Excitebots 2. I decided not to buy either mainly because I have a ton of Wii games that are very good which I don't have time to play. theJude and Joom, we need to play some Goldeneye one night. Do you feel like getting killed with me? :P

I might be willing to try, C, but yeah, I'd likely get killed a lot... haven't played that game in some time.

Oh, and C, I did some fiddling recently with my computer's mic settings, and after chatting with Joom, it seems likely the problems we were having are gone, so we could try chatting again sometime.

That sounds good. I'm glad you were able to fix it. ;)

Don't get too excited, this is something that doesn't exist, and as far as we know, never will.  It's something we all hope for and want, but nothing more.

I'm thinking of getting either and PS4 or an X-Box1. I honestly think I'm gonna go with the PS4 since the wi-fi is free and don't need to pay for Gold Memberships etc.
