Depends on pricing, If the Rev is <$200 and the PS3 is >$500 It's obviously going to be rev for me (as a secondary after the X360 of course). But with similar pricepoints (less than a $100 difference) I'd go with the PS3. Also depends on who wins the format war (if blu-ray I'd get a PS3 just for the blue ray capabilities)

I voted Revolution for now, but that could change in the future depending on a few things some others have already posted:
1. It really depends on where this format war ends up - if Blu-Ray indeed pulls through, a PS3 would be a great way to have a Blu-Ray player from the get-go, similar to using the PS2 as a DVD player way back when (I used it for both, as I didn't have a DVD player before buying my PS2). The possibilities of Blu-Ray discs holding games seems interesting, although I've heard from a number of people that only movies would be used, and games would simply be DVD9 or equivalent?

2. The Revolution really has me excited in the same ways the DS did. Nintendo seems to have struck gold with their DS, and the Revolution seems like a pretty cool idea if put into practice well. The games will determine whether the Revolution will soar or crash and burn, as it doesn't really offer much else...Gamecube was a bit of a disappoint for me (especially coming from some great titles on the N64) and I hope Nintendo can really WOW me this time around.

3. The pricing is obviously a huge concern of mine as well as many others...if Nintendo pulls off a cool little machine with more than half the price tag of it's competitors, it's safe to say I will certainly be picking up a Rev on the release date. If rumors of the PS2 being $500+ are true, well then I'm going to sit out for a year or so until I really see something that makes me want to throw down that kind of cash, like Metal Gear Solid 4, assuming it's as great as most of us expect.

I say revolution because of the Nintendo-only videogames I'll be missing out on. PS3 and 360 will probably have the same games with just a few exclusive for PS3 that I'll miss.

I'd have to go with the PS3 because of the Blu-Ray.

Revolution. Although I think it might not be as successful as the other two consoles, I love Nintendo's first party titles. I won't be able to get my Zelda fix on 360 or PS3. wink.gif

i will definitely buy both!
but very probably PS3 first because there won't be anything like Gran Turismo 5, nowhere.
if M$/xbox360 had such a killer app, there wouldn't be a single reason for purchasing a PS(1, 2 or3).
greetings,
spoone

Forza?

On the poll issue, I'd go for Revolution because of the exclusives.

Not going to buy either one, I will stick with my 360 from the begining till the end, becasue I have the money, but spending money for more than one next-gen console.

id go with revolution, i love all there exclusive games and there what i grew up playing.

Thinking about the console war, with the rise in console prices nintendo will finally have a considerable advantage if its price under 200. Think about all the parents with kids wanting a console, all they see is the price.
