    The Wii and Ps3 are my favorites as far as consoles go. The Xbox 360 is a very good console too but it has many technichal problems and does not play Blu-Ray. The Ps3 is a good console but it is overpriced, however Sony is releasing a smaller and cheaper Ps3 that has more value than the Xbox 360. The DS is also my pick for portable games.

  12. The Wii is Best.

  24. DS!!

  25. Out of all of them the PS3 beats everything for my openion I have A PS3 and 360 and got to say PS3 all the way you say xbox has graphix, high def DVD, good games online and all that. Well… PS3 tops that halo may be fun but dang it gets old PS3 has Litttle Big Planet wich is by far the best game i ever played and dang its fun new and on the PS3. So yea PS3 powns i dont care what you say about avatars on xbox360 cuz PS3 have PS3 with sweet avatars and ps store so xbox lovers try and top that!

  27. I like the ps3 best. Not because of all the features but it is the only console with a decent controller. I am writing this from my psp. GO PLAYSTATION!!!!!!

  30. well i say there all great and each has a purpose 360 for hardcore scifi shooters ps3 for great racing rpgs and shooters and some classics and wii to just get up and have fun when you decide to get into the game really no console is better but only the true gamers agree that no console is better because a true gamer respects all consoles

  31. I dont relly like any of them, other placess around the world have way better systems and we need to catch up whats the hold up any way? But i guess if i had to pick one, it would be PS3 you get what you pay for.

  32. I have the systems except ps3 and out of all of them i have had the fewest problems with the 360 and it has the best graphics and games. The wii is o.k. but it has very few good games and gets boring easily. Both psp and ds good but not great. I like both hand helds equally.

  33. ps3 becouse it has games that you could play from ps1 and ps2

    i think that wii is great because you actually get into the game without sitting on the couch the whole time but i would say the xbox360 is the best because they offer a lot of outstanding games like halo 3 and gears of war. also, the graphics are amazing in games like gears of war. the cool thing i like about the 360 is you can create a avatar. overall, like i said, 360 pwns aaaalllllllllll

  35. wwwiiiii rocks cause you dont sit on the couch and just press buttons wii you can actually get into the game

  36. have wii, ps2, Ds lite, and PSp all great but want to see what is the next console is

  37. ps100 is the best

  38. I love dsi’s wich some fo you aren’t fimiler with, but it’s coming out april 5th look for it at game stop!

  39. I don’t have most ove those but of those i do have I say good/wii/ds.the ds is my sisters but i dont have any hand held gaming systems but i want a psp

  40. i say ds cause call of duty 4:modern warfare has a lot of graphics so i pick ds.

  41. I have a ds and a WII i think wii is good but PSP is better than ds

  42. the ds rules let me tell all of you a secret you can get music and viedios on the ds go to game stop its free

  43. I have a ds and ps2 need to get a wii. Another console people overlook is the COMPUTER good graphics and games.

  44. Wii definetly it has awesome games plus you can use wi-fi and battle against other people around the world. Please dont kill me for my opinion.

  45. xbox 360

  46. The PS3 is best because,it can do the most,best graphics,AND you can play Blu-ray,Hi-def,and regualar DVD.

  47. i think wii is best because it makes things seme so lifelike

  48. i think the wii is the best

  49. I have a wii and a ds
