Different Game Consoles But One Choice

Jul 7, 2008
Video games are fun to have. With so many consoles choices nowadays, we wonder what console or platform is the best. I would say that every console or platform is different form each other, and they both have upside and downside.

Amongst the xbox, the playstations, the pc/computer game, I prefer the nintendo wii. Many reasons are motivating my choice.

Let start with the price. While the Sony and Microsoft consoles are highly price, the nintendo wii console remains affordable. As far as the individual game price and accessories, the price are almost equivalent if you compare, the playstation, the xbox and the nintendo objects. But for the initial investment, the nintendo wii console is much cheaper. Or for the same price as the sony playstation 3, you can get a well equipped nintendo wii console loaded with accessories like some extra controllers and a fe additionnal games.

My second point that makes me prefer the nintendo wii console, is the gameplay. While nintendo did not put the emphasis on the quality of the graphics the console can render, they fully develop and revolutionise the way their game are played. With the wireless accesories, like nunchuck and controllers, you can fully involve your whole body into playing the game versus only exercising your finger on a remote control. For example, the bowling game is very interactive and reproduce enterly the way we play bowling in real life. Same goes for golf, baseball and the boxing game. The last one is very demanding physically and will exercise your cardio fitness fully. A 30 mins boxing match let you spend more energy then doing stationnary bicyle for the same period of time.

The internet browsing on the nintendo wii console is very interesting. On the downside, a limitation of the nintendo wii is the fact that you need to have wireless capabilities on your internet network to be able to surf or communicate. Once you are equip with a wireless connection you fully enable the network gaming and the internet browsing. To enable this wireless networking, you can either purchase an internet router, such as a linksys or dlink, or even buy the usb wireless adapter made by nintendo.

Another point that would provide the nintendo wii console a lead over it's competitor, is the fact that almost all major video games are also realease on the nintendo wii. The nintendo console is not neglected by game developper. As for the game specially made for the nintendo wii, they are growing in numbers as the popularity of the console is increasing.

My last point about the nintendo wii console is for the retro gamers. As previously said, the nintendo wii can browse the internet and this access let you purchase for a small price almost anygame nintendo ever realese, either on their original 8 bit console, the super nintendo or the game cube. This backward compatible console is a must for all nostalgic gamers who have pass their youth playing those game like mario kart or super mario bros.

While the nintendo wii platform gets my vote, the other platforms including the pc are also very fun to play and also make a good choice for fun and entertainment alone or with a group of friends.
