Default Re: XBox 360, Playstation and other gaming consoles

Guys,

I need urgent help. I am about to buy a gaming device, and I am confused to choose which one to go with.

#1 PS3
#2 Wii
#3 XBox

I am only considering wireless controllers / kinetec.

My budget could go be upto 17k.

Which one should I go with? What is the difference between Wii and WiiU ?

Can you guys please help.?

So Nintendo Wii is available in India officially with all warranty and support?


EDIT: yes it is available (looks like I am still living half a decade ago)
From what I have gathered, the game on Wii are very different from what you get on PS3 and Xbox.

My advice is look at what is servicable of the three. PS3 in warranty will be a straight replacement. Out of warranty its still a replacement with depreciation meaning they will replace 70% cost while you have to bear 30%.

And these devices will FAIL.

PS4 pre-orders outstrip those of PS2 and PS3

PS4 expected on November 15th in North America and on November 29th in the UK.

I was just contemplating on buying a console and your last statement has got me thinking.

I enjoy playing First Person Shooter games like Call of Duty, etc. and on rare occasion i play NFS or other racing games and all these on the PC.

Which console would you suggest in terms of reliability, service backup and performance? My son likes the motion sensing games too so this would be a requirement as well.

As of now, just started my search so i have no planned budget.

Wont speak about Xbox as i have limited experience with them.
In regards to Ps3 i had mine changed 3 times under warranty. Fault was mine asi didn't realised need a ups with it to control the electricity fluctuation.

Since i got the ups its working fine for last 6 months. Performance is very good and Sony service is great uptill now. Each time they replaced it promptly.
Initially i had the fat one 320gb but last time it went kaput due to fluctuation Sony told me fat one is no longer in production so instead they gave me a brand new 500gb Slim one which is more expensive and didn't charged me anything

When you are in warranty sony just replaces the hardware. Problem starts when you are out of warranty as you have to cough up more. In fact the most common failure is the power module which is absolutely easy to replace.

Wii is not a gaming device like XBOX or PS3. Wii is a fun station when you want to play a social game.

For serious game get the XBOX or PS3/4

Between these two, i would want you to review the service possibility in the future and support even if its locally available by proper gaming shops.

I have a PS3 and there are no regrets except my brothers PS3 is kaput and i am now opening the device this weekend to check if i can repalce the power module myself

I am not a game-addict, but play very rarely.

The motion sensing implementation is different for XBOX and PS3.
PS3 needs you to have a torch like 'controller' in hand and a camera detects that, where as, Kinect does not require you to have anything in your hands.

Most probably you will like only one of these two. So, decision is easy.

I suggest visit Landmark or some place where they have all of these consoles to try out. Should be much easier to decide based on first hand experience.


Power supply and heat are the two enemies of all electronic gadgets. Same applies in this case. I am not sure how much outside market support is there for spares and repairs after warranty.
If console usage is not going to be much, then PC is still a very good option.

Thanks guys. Will check around and pick up something that meets my budget. Looks like the xBox is something i would want since it does not require the "torch" to be held while playing motion sensing games. On the other hand, Sony seems to be great on support.

Would the new PS4 play older games which work on the PS3? Or am i better off buying a PS3 on a clearance sale? (assuming there will be one to make way for the new gen console)

It all depends on what you are looking for,PS3 will give you the best graphics and largest game library,XBOX360 is good for online gaming with its Xbox live feature,Wii is good if you are looking at motion gaming and like to play old-school games like MarioKart,Zelda etc.
Wii is quite different from the other two as you won't get HD graphics and it's more focused towards motion gaming although the other two have caught up with it.
Wii U is the next generation of the Wii,it uses a tablet controller to play games instead of the motion controllers available in the Wii.Don't know when it is going to be available but I doubt it will be in the near future considering Nintendo's track record with previous gen consoles.

Wii is a gaming console though I agree you won't get same sort of graphics quality you get in the PS3 or Xbox.I own both PS3 and Wii,and most of the major titles that are available in the PS3 are also there on the Wii but you lose out on the motion gaming aspect in some of them.

Only if you buy the game on the PS store, the discs from PS3 wont work on the PS4!
