Hope m$ does well this time, Wii looks cheap and cool so think it will do well, PS3 will get better as years go on but really not sure about Sony just yet. They have really let me down with Delaying in Europe, I was considering getting one for F1 games but I hate how Sony picks on Europe all the freakin time (look at PSP for example, which is why I got a DS).

as much as id like ms to win, i think sony will pull ahead this time simply because of a larger fanbase, huge backward compatibility list, and ps2's huge popularity. Ms is still pretty new to this however sony has been in the buisness for a pretty long time, and judging by the success of previous generations, know what their doing. Just look at japan, they've sold what, like 5 360's there? either theres no gamers (ya right) or they all are waiting for the ps3. just my 2 cents

I hope MS does better this time round with the 360 against the PS3. I think Sony have really screwed up this time. PS3 is way too much money for a system that will probably play games just as well as the much cheaper 360. Does anyone really care about Blu Ray?. The 360 has had over a years head start and is selling very well (except Japan). The 360 has an already massive and successful online community with a good selection of games. Oh yeah and no PS3 in Europe for xmas??, big mistake!. People will just buy the 360 instead and any parents will be happy they didn't need to spend the extra s on the PS3. But Sony will still do really well just because of their brand name. So for that I think it will be MS 1st with Sony just behind and then Nintendo.

I think nintendo will win.....It has the cheapest console, awesome controler, virtual console, and online play biggrin.gif.....Ms will get 2nd....it has good games...great graphics...reasonable price...and xbox live.....sony will be last...because of their price, possibly slow console manufacturing, no europe at launch, developers are having a hard time making games....

My two cents..... I voted M$, Nintendo, Sony. My reasoning came from three categories; price, release date, and features.

M$ will finish first because they won over quite a bit of people, including my self, with the xbox and they now have a fan base. Just as Sony did after the Play Station. My second reason would be that they hit the market first and the average consumer can't afford more than one console. The 360 isn't going to be as featured packed as the PS3 but let's not forget about LIVE. I think LIVE will dominate for years to come. One last thing that will help secure M$ at the top is that Sony will not have as many exclusive titles as it did for the PS2, which in my opinion is the biggest reason the PS2 stayed alive after the release of the xbox.

Nintendo will finish second because the price on it just looks too good to pass up if your looking for something new to do. Nintendo also has too many loyal fans, including me, to let it pass for that price.

As for Sony, I can't find anything go to say about it except that it's going to be one bad mother. It will top the 360 in performance but at the same time in price. The price tag on it just doesn't seem like something I my self would just pick up, let alone save up for. Trust me, everyone in Japan will have one but Japan doesn't make up the whole consumer market. The last point is that it will hit the market last.

In conclusion, the biggest reason I think M$ will finish first is that it will hit the market first. Sony will finish last because it cost too damn much and Nintendo is stuck in the middle because it's a bargain. Maybe my rankings are bias because I like Nintendo for everything it has done but I still stick with my stance as M$ finishing #1.

A quick thought I had after posting is that I'd like to see the same poll and it's results on a Sony and Nintendo site.......

Unfortunatly i am going to have to agree with you. Of coarse it would be great if Microsoft could pull ahead and win but i think Sony's fanbase and popularity is just too much for Microsoft to handle.

I think with all the setbacks and unstable hardware Sony is dealing with M$ will win this round. However I don't think Nintendo will be able to outdo Sony's fanboys and will be stuck in last as usuall. I know myself I'll be getting a Wii60 combo.

I think consumers will reconsider a 360 when they find out that a) they cant play the latest dvd movies b/c they are on blueray or B) they have to buy a $300 add-on drive thats half the size of the 360 just to play HD-DVD movies(no games). Also, sony dev's can fit a ton of game on a blueray disc(30Gb), compared to dual layer dvds for 360. This is more of a problem for future games not current generation.

Honestly... I think that the PS3 is too expensive at its current price to penetrate deeply into the market. People complained about the $400 price tag of the 360.... what do you think they will say about the $500 tag of the PS3 (since the premium 360 is comparable to the $500 PS3)?

I choose 360 , Wii then PS3 because ,

From what I can tell , the 360 is a system that takes everyone into consideration. I feel the same way about the Wii.

*I did not post this to bash sony* When you talk about the PS3 , 600 dollars !
70+ dollars per game , pushing untested technology (that damn Blue-Ray is boosting the price) down our throats...

Ok I quit but just know that
