    Well I voted Sony ...but not that I think its the better console....just that I think its still to early to judge right now....and I think more people will buy the Sony cause of the hype and the success of PS1 and PS2:(

    Wow thats a no brainer.... Sony fucked this one up real good. Not only is it impossible to get one, us people in the EU has to wait 4 months to get one. But hopefully there will be plenty for the EU launch, most of the bugs has been removed by updates and some games worth playing.

    Sony rushed PS3 for the holiday sales and did a poor job.

    I am not going to vote, but I agree that sony fucked up that one. Why not wait till Spring for the release in the first place? Less bugs, more units, more games, better everything.
    Why would they rush for the xmas period when they can't possibly meet the demand for units then? Stupid stupid stupid.

    While there is more hype for the PS3 (and thus good marketing and on that sense, a good launch), the rarity of the console makes it an unsuccesful launch like with the Xbox..

    As for the Wii, the oppisite is true (I THINK....) thus for me, neither really...

    It's the Wii. Nintendo is making $70 per console. Sony is losing $200.

    If Sony didn't try to shove crap down our throats (Blu Ray) they would probably be turning a profit on the console. I bet they would have been able to make a lot more of them if it weren't for the shortage on the drives.

    We still have to remember that Blu Ray is catering to non-existient demand.

    Wii is flying so far, Absalutely little to no people having problems aside from some one getting out of hand and actually wrecking his own TV.

    the Wii, without question.
    sony screwed up almost every aspect of the ps3 launch, and like erro said, us poor sods in europe don't even get the bloody thing until march, and that's after all the god-damn delays in the first place :(

    the Wii by far IMO. it's like a 7900GT or an x1900pro.....best bang for the buck :).

    nintendo! it's not even close... i'd say it was a near-perfect launch as far as building up the hype and delivering! the overall process was so smooth too, with tons of consoles available and no chaos in the lineups...

    I say the Wii launch was successful. Plenty of units were launched, they were mostly bought to play and not for ebay, and Nintendo is actually turning a profit on each unit.

    i dont wanna buy 1 too keep....I like my 360.And from everything I have read the PS3 & the X-Box 360 are the same as far as performance is concerned.I'm just looking to buy 1 for the good ole profit motive.And I finally saw my 1st Wii comercial last nite.But the again I dont watch much TV eather.

    nintendo`s launch will be the most sucessful due to the fact that they will probibly be enough consoles to meet demand before christmas where the 360 and ps3 had/has nowhere near enough consoles to meet demand.

    sony wish - the graphics performance of the RSX on the PS3 is vastly inferior to the ATI 48 PP card in the 360. im not going over it again. there are other threads on DH in which I explain it in great detail. As for your comment on "profit motive" - I was directing you to ebay, as EVERYONE is doing it - buying one then trying to sell it for 2-3 times the price, perhaps you missed the point I was making.
