    I own both, but I do not take my console seriously, it is just for fun. I have a 360 by the way.

    I do not understand why anybody would get a WII. It is the weakest of all the current generation consoles. For a few bucks more, you can get a 360 which is a powerhouse compared to the WII.

    Nintendo tried to sell the idea of "fun" to gamers who don't care about specs and power, but for me that does not cut it, the graphics ability of a platform plays a major role in the fun factor to be had with it. Not also mentioning the fact that swinging those nunchucks like an idiot around the room is not my idea of fun or exercise and it does not apeal to me. If I want a workout I do it properly with weights.

    As for the graphics department, an extreme example would be comparing a Commodore with recent PC, you are going to have a lot much more fun on your recent PC than on the Commodore.

    My take on consoles is that they are the poor man's alternative to playing games. Consoles are for kids as well and for people with low technical know how: lack of knowledge on how to install them, update drivers, configure their computer, etc.. Also exceptions do certainly exist, but a PC will always be more powerful and versatile then a console, for the bottom line simple fact reason of their price point: you get what you pay for. A 500 dollar console is never going to be more powerful then a 3,000 dollar computer - using extremes here.

    Not only that, but a computer is just more sophisticated and more capable then a console. A console built to match the latest computer's specs will be essentially another computer, and to build it smaller without overheating will essentially prove to be even more expensive. Therefore it can not and will not be done.

    I leave you with this funny informational site on old computers lol:

    joao, yes, but xfire is just an example. Ventrilo is pretty good.
    IEEE, yeah, your computer will crash if you don't know what you're doing when you build it, or if you overclock it improperly, or if you get a virus. It's pretty easy to build it properly and not get viruses. I havn't used antivirus software or even a firewall for years and the only virus I got was some shit I downloaded off of Limewire as a noob and didn't know what it was. And it was easy enough to remove.

    Didn't you PM me saying x-fire "r teh sux" ?

    Computer: for work, fun and entertainment; often has an uptime of 50% (crashes); often requires upgrades to keep up with new games (Video, memory, controllers, faster cpu's)

    Console: for fun and entertainment; often has an uptime of 99.9%; only requires you to buy another new console when you want to, all the games made for the console don't have any other requirements than having the console itself

    Consoles could also = play all by yourself in your little console room in your mom's basement :p

    pcs can = having fun connected to a server with your friends who alos have computers and enjoying having your own screen

    consoles = party games with friends in the same room as you having a good time
    PC = play by yourself all alone in your little computer room in your mom's basement

    that's like saying buying beer is stupid you should just drink water it's free.

    Because consoles are cheaper. To build a pc that can do what a console can do as well as it can, you would have to spend upwards of $1000. However, an Xbox 360 only costs $400 or so for the basic unit. The Xbox also has online capabilities so you can play online as well. However, you can do a whole hell of a lot more with pc's.

    And as for video games it's more than just pressing buttons... those buttons make your guy do stuff, like shoot at monsters.

    Only dumb people buy videogames!

    Listen, why would I even bother buying one, if I can pay much less in an awesome PC, that will run awesome games that can be played with people from all around the globe?

    Also, at the same time, you may learn something at the computer that might be useful in a future job, because you have to do stuff with folders, files etc.

    And what about videogame? It's just pressing some random buttons! Wake up, people!

    I can make a custom resolution like that, but I would probably just get a black screen.

    Boost that refresh rate up to 250hz!!! But never go past 300hz tho, my dad's still mad it me for vaporizing his monitor by overclocking it.
