“Shall we play a game?”: On 360s, Wiis and PS3s
With the winner of next-gen console wars yet to be decided, I see something like this and have to believe that a piece of hardware that inspires such a compelling sense of possibility has a damn good chance of taking the hill and defending it.
I've been a very satisfied, early adopting owner of a 360. (Even without having found the time to play the Halo 3 beta.) However, I have finally been caught up in the snowballing evangelism of the Wii. I've begun my hunt. They're right, We would like to play. (Hol's even intrigued!) Do I want a PS3? Yeah, ultimately. But there's nothing about it (and I mean nothing) that is remotely compelling to me at the moment.
So, while there are some great titles for the 360 that I've already got on pre-order – BioShock, GTA IV, Halo 3, and Mass Effect – the Wii is in my sights.
