Wii vs PS3: System Comparison

May 6, 2008
When considering a Wii or PS3, there are several different factors that you would need to consider before you purchase one of the consoles. The most important things for one to consider before making a large purchase like this are the hardware quality and the system's online capabilities and support.

Wii

A couple of strong factors you should take into account when comparing Wii vs PS3 are the hardware and online gaming capabilities of each system. The processing power of the Wii is not one of its strongest points, however, it has one of the most innovative control mechanisms to be invented since the joystick. Nintendo keeps the hardware behind the functionality a closely guarded secret and in doing so, keeps the competition guessing for what is a truly unique controller design. It takes skill to master the controller but the bonus for expert gamers looking for a new challenge will be the price. The price is low, the Nintendon Wii is a great system and hard to pass up.

The online Plan for the Wii is not satisfactory. Like the PS3 its going to be a free service but with far fewer games. It will be harder to laocate friends online as you will need to enter a friend code.The PS3 service is much better.

The PlayStation 3

The PS3 vs. Wii debate is pretty much over, and the PS3 has prevailed. It is the most powerful gaming system you can buy, with a CELL chip that allows processing to be customized. While it takes more work for developers to make PS3 games, the added power allows the players excellent views on multiplatform games. The PS3 is more costly due to the better processor, but that processor gives the PS3 an edge that the Wii cannot match.

The PS3 has the best online plan of any gaming system on the market. The Wii is not a serious contender. The PS3's gaming plan allows online purchases, has a wide variety of games available, and has a forum used by numerous gamers from all over the planet. Nearly every PS3 game is at least partially available online. And the best part: the entire online plan is free!

Make an informed choice, as there is an equal number of pros and cons to take into account before making the final decision. Only you can judge which of the systems available would be more suitable for you.
