Favorite Console?

I don't like any consoles. Not as "main gaming device". But for playing with friends I prefer xBox 360 too, but just because I like the controllers more.

On the other hand, playstation is free of charge for playing online. I also heard there will be a new generation of xBox and Playstation soon!?

PC.

Unlimited upgrades, the most keybinds for more complex games, fastest reaction time with the improving technology of the gaming peripherals, and about 20+ years of backwards compatibility. You can do things with PC versions of games that you can't possibly touch with a controller. I do have a special place for another platform. The hackability and portability of the PSP. I couldn't believe how fast I hit 100 hours in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. PS3 and 360 are also fantastic. They each have their own 10/10 titles. Unfortunately my Wii doesn't get any play time unless friends come over and want to play Super Smash Bros. PSvita has potential but it's not looking too good right now. 3DS is solid.

^^^Unlimited upgrades is not true. :)

 

A board can only support so much. RAM slots have a limit, Processor slots only accept certain pin layouts... etc.

It depends how you want to define it. A PC is fully customisable, but after a while you end up with 100% different parts. After a while, the board will be too outdated to support a new processor model. But replacing the board isn't hard, nor is buying and fitting the matching processor and RAM. But you could still use the same graphics card, power supply, DVD drive, HDD/SSD, etc.

Xbox 360 without a doubt. It has the most owners and online players than all other consoles put together, has more up-time than all others and is generally a better console with less hackers, glitchers and cheaters. And, of course, Xbox Live Enforcement Teams take action upon accounts breaking the rules, which is always a good thing.

I will always remember going out and buying my PS2 for my 10th Birthday. It was brand new and shiny and I had to wait just a couple more days before I got it because if we went to this special show I would get a better deal (Although I obviously didn't care what kind of deal I was getting as long as I got what the amazing PS2!)

 

Since then I've had an XBox 360 although it broke and got sent a brand new one that I then sold on and a wii.

 

I have to say that the XBox and PlayStation are simply to close to compare. People will always choose their personal preferences over anything and normally 1 or 2 games won't make or break a console.

 

I've always gamed on my PC as my first choose as it simply has the advantage over all over consoles of being a PC. I mean it's nearly limitless what you can do with one of them when you compare it to an standard console.

 

Anyway I'm dragging this out far to much. PS2 is always going to be my favourite. It's even hooked up now to my TV!

I prefer the PS3, there are many reasons for that. :P However, I got an Xbox 360 last christmas, and I'm finding that their upgraded dash and new media options are very impressive. Sony has to ramp up the effort on the media front at this point.

Does a PC count? :) I know I know it doesn't, but I do all my gaming on the PC.

 

Same here. I pretty much never game on an actual console any more. And if I do, I'm going to go all the way back to the NES usually, lol. I do like being able to use an Xbox 360 controller at the PC, but I don't normally play games where that's something I would want to do even.

Favorite consoles huh? I've read a lot of these topics way back. A fight between Xbox 360, PS3 & Wii. I currently own an official PS3 (not jailbroken) and it's a blast. I've played some games on my cousin's Xbox 360 and for me it was fine but growing up playing PS1 & PS 2 games with my dad makes me think PlayStation is still better than Xbox (no offense).

 

I love playing on my PS3 and I wouldn't trade it for an Xbox 360 or Wii. So yeah, PlayStation is still the best (for me).

PS2, hands down. Amazing game library and pretty amazing hardware (when launched). Plus it had backwards compatibility with PS games, meaning I could enjoy 2 generations on a single console. I guess it helps that the developers weren't so deep into the cash cow side of the force back then. For portables, GBA and PSP mainly for size and library. If we're talking about current generation, then I'll have to go with the PS3 for the hardware and some of my favorite franchises.

My primary gaming source has always been my PC. The graphics and modability (is that a word?) are the clincher for me. That and if you have a powerful enough machine, you can emulate just about any console out there. Err....not that I would know about that sort of thing..
