    Heartily agree with the 360 controller's greatness. It's just the best controller I've ever played with. When the new one comes out, I hope they're backwards compatible and they better not jump on the motion sensing bandwagon unless they get it perfect and it's more accurate than a regular controller, or certainly more accurate than the Wiimote.

    Tell me about it, all the bottons are exactly where they should be, it molds to my hand (the PS is kind of "blocky"), the sticks are far enough appart (that is one reason I hate PS3 controller), the triggers are great. The overall controller is just perfect for FPS games. I have actually been looking for a way to be able to use the PS3 with a 360 controller, so far I found one way to do it but you have to run a cable to the PS3, no wireless.

    Yes they are quite comfortable to use, especially when it comes to fps or racing in my opinion.

    They've made an Ico 3?!?! *elated squeal* It may be the very thing that makes me bother to get a PS3 at some point (along with a few other games).

    I don't own any of the new consoles, but I've played with the Wii and it's pretty fun. I suppose the Wii has won, really. Not because the games were awesome and amazing, but because it's introduced a new system of controls for playing video games and has consistently built upon that system. It has also managed to get more people playing video games by making the act of playing more interactive. (Never would I have thought to hear my mom say, "Let's play Wii Tennis".)

    Now if we could just have the Wii's gaming system concept (only more refined) combined with the graphics of the 360/PS3 and the rougher, grittier types of games those two consoles usually have...

    Heh, we have a 'wii tennis' club here at work. It's surprising how the simplest games can grab hold. Wii tennis is serious business here. And I say that without a twinge of sarcasm.

    I can't say there's too many exclusives on either console that I must have.

    Team Ico, creators of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, are currently developing a game for the PS3 which we still know nothing about. But it's coming sooner or later. 2009/2010 is a good bet.

    Nintendo is the winner by a long shot. The Wii's main competition is the DS.

    I personally own a PS3 though. I got new one for $250 and that was too good to pass up. Overall I just think the Xbox360 and PS3 are so similar. You should just refer to them both as the PS360. The main decision between the two is do you want to just play games or do you want to do other stuff (like watch blue-rays) too. That basically determines which one you should like more.
