7. Gaming

7.1. Playstation

7.1.1. Pros:

7.1.1.1. PS3’s DualShock 3 is the only one that’s rechargeable out of the box.

7.1.1.2. PS3 is the only gaming console that offers a Blu-ray high definition disc drive. This plays out to be two distinct advantages for the PS3 -- Blu-ray movies and Blu-ray games. DVDs are on their way out, and Blu-ray is the new standard for video. Blu-ray discs also hold more data, so the PS3 has to use fewer discs for games. Finally, every PS3 supports 1080p video, upconverts regular DVDs to look better on your HDTV, and has an HDMI output (necessary for the highest quality HD signals).

7.1.2. Cons:

7.1.2.1. Sticker price of the PS3 is higher than the Wii or Xbox 360

7.1.2.2. 2

7.2. XBox

7.2.1. Pros:

7.2.1.1. The menu system is futuristic and cool – Using a new touch-based menu system, Kinect changes the way you use your Xbox 360. get to interact with a device doing the same exact thing that Tom Cruise did in "Minority Report" – by grabbing and dragging.

7.2.1.2. 2

7.2.2. Cons

7.2.2.1. 1

7.2.2.2. Wii operate off of older disc technologies.

7.3. Wii

7.3.1. Pros:

7.3.1.1. Controllers are easy to use for all ages – Both the Nunchuk and Wii remote are fairly simple to use. There are times you’ll need to perform calibration actions or make adjustments with the Motion Bar that’s packaged with the system, but it’s a cinch — for adults or kids — to hook up the system, plug in your controller, sync it to your unit (two simple button presses) and get to playing.

7.3.1.2. Nintendo has everything you need for a mere $200. That price includes the console, a controller and Nunchuk, accessories, and two hit games – Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort.

7.3.2. Cons:

7.3.2.1. The Wii is the biggest recipient of bad games to date, surpassing the PS2’s stinky library with lackluster efforts from Zoo Games, Conspiracy Entertainment and other studios.

7.3.2.2. The Wii remote reads movement pretty well, but it’s not perfect. We’ve run into a number of games that didn’t read your actions precisely enough, resulting in falling off a race track or performing a specific thing the wrong way.
