There is no such thing as 'out-growing' games. Heck, my parents still play occasionally, but not on any system past the SNES.

Ummmm.... about X-box.......  I prefer both the playsation 1 & 2 and all the Nintendo systems waaaaaaay better.
I personally think Microsoft should have stuck to it's near monopoly on computers, and left the gaming systems alone.
Besides there are very few games that interest me that Sony and/or Nintendo don't have, and if there is one I can probably get it on PC.

I'm sure I'll eventually be happy with the system (the new controller still throws me for a loop :P )and of course all the games, but I don't know that I'll ever really get used to the name.
WII???????  I repeat, what were they thinking?

It's true that Microsoft should have stuck to it's own turf, and when it was truly ready, enter the console arena. That, of course, should have been about two decades into the future, when they would almost be dead. By that time, they would introduce the Xbox, which would be a gaming revolution for the time. But their time is not now!

Personally I like the idea of a hard drive in a console, but the thing was just so big that's what I hated about it.

Anyway I'm getting an XBOX so I can continue the Oddworld series, but I'm not touching the 360. So far the 360 seems like a ripoff with the two different packages you can get.

The 360 has two different versions. The core, and the better one. The core is basically the 360, and only a 360, for only 300 dollars. The better  one is a hundred more, and gives you backwards compatibility, and more. (I think) You must think like the enemy to beat the enemy. So I must learn about the enemy to know it's weakness's!

Well Wii is going to be the worldwide name. If they changed it anywhere it would be Japan because of how hard it will be for them to pronounce it. XD

Yeah having the core system was a mistake in my opinion. It's a ripoff because over here the core is $500 and the better one is $600. :-\

And who would pay that much for a console anyway? I like the Wii's approach, which is small design, massive innovation, all for a small price. It's really well thought out. Plus, the fact that Nintendo offers free Wifi on both the DS and the Rev! Now that's a bargain! Don't you just love a bargain?

I'm not much of a console-fan as a whole, but I prefer Xbox over Playstation or any of Nintendo's consoles. Mostly, they have a wider selection of games, and while they're not as original as say Nintendo are, they manage to draw a more varied crowd. Whereas Nintendo mostly attracts the Nintendo fans as a whole and the Asian market.

IMO of course.

So will Wii be able to support a huge number of players? Granted, you'd probably need extra TVs to show all the players. :P

Yay! Our first Xbox supporter! Now the thread's getting interesting! I won't deny that the Xbox's selection of games is much bigger, and more on the T and M ratings, but I prefer the Nintendo games personally. Remember the expression, "Don't judge a book by it's cover"? A lot of people tell me that Nintendo's games look kiddy, but I think that while they have a childish appearance, they are extremely tough to beat in the end. I never finished any of the Zelda games, I had to rely on cheats, and still I can't beat them! (But I am beginning to abandon my old ways of cheating entirely! Starting with Kingdom Hearts 2, I am using zero cheats! Same goes for Tomb Raider: Legend!)

I'm barely aware that cheats exist. XD I've never used any. :P I think I'm pretty ok at video games, but I've never managed to beat any FF game. :P I know for FFX though, the plot didn't interest me enough to keep playing. :P

Cheats exist in almost every game, the problem is that you usually need something to find them. Action Replay's the best, and then there's GameShark, and a lot more. Action replay is number one though. At least that's what they say on their package! XD

I had a Gameshark for my Gameboy once! I didn't know how to make it work, but I thought it was really cool. :P

I like XBox >_>;

Although, we've only had one for about a month, there's just been a load of games that are XBox and PS2 exclusive..  And I prefer XBox to PS2, lol.

Don't think that means I'm forsaking my beloved Nintendo though!  I still love my NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, GB, GB Colour, GB Advance AND Nintendo DS! :D

Well, the beef for me is with the selection of games. Nintendo tends to follow a very strong theme. I don't mind "kiddish" games, but on the other hand, that's not why I pay a lot of money for a console. I want a variety, both simple and fun games, as well as realistic and complex games, and in the past Nintendo has never appealed to me in that sense. I also havn't been much into many of their products, as well as most Japanese products as a whole, I tend to prefer more western(world)-styled games.
