I would say during the first half it was the Xbox 360 as the PS3 at the time was still difficult to program for and was expensive. For the last couple of years though, I would say the PS3 wins. The Xbox 360 is severely behind these days and most of the games I want to play on it also come out on PC. The Xbox is sort of like the ***** console now because all developers have changed their focus onto the PS3 and PC market since the Xbox can no longer push games graphically anymore. In addition my Xbox got the red ring of death and I refuse to buy another console. In fact I don't think I will ever buy another Xbox again as I imagine the next one will break too and I can just play the same games with an Xbox controller on PC.deathbyoatmeal said:As this generation winds to a close, it comes time to look back on this past generation. Having been, in my opinion, the best generation thus far, which console really stood out? In my opinion the ps3 is easily the winner. The xbox beats it in user interface and online accessibility, and the wii wins in term of innovative design, but the ps3 wins where it counts the most, games. Uncharted, Infamous, Resistance, the ps3 started the most franchises this generation and all of them were huge successes and innovated in unique ways. In addition they continued great franchises like killzone and ratchet and clank and took them to new heights. Add to that great downloadable games like journey and pixeljunk, and the ps3 had the best lineup i've ever seen. What do you think?
As for the Wii, I used to think it was going to be amazing, but I personally think it failed. It never really had any interesting games and the core franchises all sucked this time. I hate both Zelda games, Mario was bleh, and Metroid is dead.
On a surprising note, I think the PC is right up there with the PS3. Virtually every console game now comes out on PC and developers are getting really good at optimizing them for PC so that they run smooth even on an older PC. My last PC lasted five years running all games on virtually max settings. With Steam and all the great deals it offers, I think the PC is now a viable option especially now that consoles are starting to cost a lot of money. I wouldn't be surprised if the next console costs over $600. For a $1000 you could easily build a really good PC.
