    Which do you like better? XBox, PS3 or wii?

    I getting a gaming console for my hubby(T11) who has never played any games. Which unit would be good for a newbie?

    Thanks for any help!

    Everything I have heard leads me to believe that the Nintendo Wii was the winning gaming console for 2006. The Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 will allow you to watch high-def movies, if this is important to you. The Xbox 360 plays HD DVDs, but the box is noticeably noisy. The PlayStation 3 will play Blu-Ray DVDs and there is no noise factor. You may also want to go into a Best Buy or Circuit City and demo these games before you buy.

    i would go with PS2. i think its a buck and a half now. so many games to play you will go crazy picking the ones you like out. be a great setup for just starting out. PS3 to much now.

    Microsoft is extending a three-year warranty to the Xbox 360 because of a 30% failure rate.

    Nintendo aims most of their games towards children. PS2 or PS3 would be a better bet for an adult man.

    Got my PS2 for $129. I totally agree, there are so many great games out there for the PS2 at this point, it would take years to play through them all. Why buy a PS3 even with the recent price drop? BluRay? Meh.

    I agree with Zero. Wait a year or two until a nice price drop for the PS3. Get a PS2 for now, especially for a newbie.

    The real important thing is to pick the right games. Check online sites that rate games, do some research. I do this for all the games I buy and I'm proud of the quality of my relatively small library. Avoid games based on movies or TV shows for sure!

    What kind of games do you think your husband would like? Sports? RPG? Action?

    Wouldn't replace my XBOX360 for anything! Most of the best titles have been on the XBOX360 platform.
