Wii Vs. Windows Vista / PS3 Vs. HDTV

31 replies 1 views Edited Mar 15, 2007
    Well, I can no longer get a PS3 for my birthday in July. I knew I would have to pay for half of it ($330CDN). But there is also 7 Xbox 360 games coming out before July that I have to buy ($550CDN). So, after paying $550 for all those games, I would have to pay $330 for a PS3. And on top of that, add another $200 for 3 PS3 games. So I would have to pay $530 for a PS3 and 3 games, after paying $550 for Xbox 360 games. I cannot afford that, as my job does not pay much, as I am 14. So I am not getting a PlayStation 3 for my birthday.
  
    Now, I am either going to get a Wii or Windows Vista for my birthday. Which do you think I should get, and why? I only like about 14 anounced Wii games, and even then, most of them (other than titles like MP Corruption, SMGalaxy,SSBB, etc), dont even compare to amazing 360 games.

    For Christmas, I have decided to either get a PS3, or an HDTV, which I have wanted for about a year and a half. If I dont get a PS3 for christmas, I will probably get one in 2008. Also, I currently have to live with a 14" Flatscreen Tube TV (in my room). It is only at my dads, so I only have to use it on weekends (27" SDTV at my moms in my room). The HDTV would be 27", and capable of 1080p. I would also get a kickass surround sound system for it. As for PS3, I currently want about 20 games for it, about 15 of which are coming out before the end of 2007, and 5 in 2008 and 2009. So which do you think I should get for Christmas, and why?

As for any replies only speaking about my console decision, I will ask a mod to delete them. I really need help deciding which ones to get for my birthday, and christmas. And I dont want this thread to be locked, so I will just ask a mod to remove your reply.

Current Score (First to 15 wins)

Birthday

Vista            Wii
   8               6

Christmas

HDTV          PS3
   6               8



I have decided, I really dont know what to choose between Vista and Wii, and HDTV and PS3. So FIRST TO 15 WINS! I will eventually get a HDTV if PS3 wins, or will eventually get a PS3 if HDTV wins. Same goes for Vista and Wii.

After reading your first paragraph, I have come to the following conclusion:

Find something else to spend your money on.

Then save it. I can not imagine spending so much on games. I'd go crazy.

You always make threads with you wanting something else.  360, PS3, WIndows Vista, Wii...I wonder what's next? Stay tuned...

Get Vista, because the Wii has primitive graphics, small current and future good game selection, few functions.
 
Get the HDTV, because the HDTV can be used for something else.
