Video Game Console Comparison For Christmas

Like every Christmas, this year a new video game console is on the top of many kids wish lists. The question for parents is which console is right for my kids, do you know the answer? I’ll break down some of the major features of each console, the advantages and disadvantages and in the end hopefully give you some of the information you need to make an informed decision.

The Wii has been this years media darling console and with good reason. The Wii has introduced gaming to a whole group of people who wouldn’t look twice a at a video game console before.

I have yet to meet a person who didn’t enjoy playing games on the Nintendo Wii. Sure I’ve met some who say things like “I was expecting better graphics”, but each and every person who has tried our Nintendo Wii has enjoyed the experience. Everyone from my Mother, to my daughter have enjoyed games like bowling, baseball and boxing on the Wii. Even just watching the amusing little Mii’s walk around on screen can be fun.

Pick up the Wii controller and try games like bowling, baseball and see what a difference a motion sensitive controller can make to a game. When bowling, use the motion you would when you bowl, same for golf, baseball and a number of other games. When driving, turn the controller sideways and use it like a steering wheel. It really is quite revolutionary and gives theแทงบอลออนไลน์ Wii it’s own flavor.

If you have a teenage boy who likes online gaming, then chances are pretty good he’ll be wanting an Xbox 360. The Halo series is one of the most successful of all time and it’s only available on the Xbox360.

I’ve been very happy with the system, the graphics on our 42″ plasma HDTV are outstanding and it came with a free month of Xbox Live Gold, which I just extended another 13 months for $59. Xbox Live and Halo 3 may be the Xbox 360’s distinguishing features, Xbox Live allows you to download demo’s of games, video clips and of course play multi player games online. There are many other great games for the Xbox like Gears of War and BioShock, in fact as of this Christmas the Xbox 360 probably has the best library of great games of all three systems, with the Wii in second and the PlayStation 3 third.

The Sony PlayStation 3 is the most expensive of the three systems, it was also the last one to hit store shelves. The PlayStation 3 features include the best graphics subsystem of any of the consoles and of course the Blu-Ray DVD player which is built in. If you have a high def TV and want a Blu-Ray player, then the Sony PlayStation 3 is the right choice for you.
