I agree that all the consoles are great but you should buy a console based on the games you want that are available on that platform, multimedia functionality should be a secondary thought. Btw what do you mean the 360 has decent graphics? It's only slightly less powerful than the PS3 and it's far easier to develop for which puts its graphics on the same level.
of gaming. I'm sick and tired of all the arguing about what console is the best. They're all different and good in their own ways. The Wii's cheap, unique, and fun, but it's graphics are last gen! The 360 is great for games, graphics are decent, but full HD capability isn't here yet (no HDMI...no high definition movie format supported out of the box) and the PS3 is the beast of them all, but the most expensive. In the HD console wars (Wii not part of) it's actually pretty even if you try to even everything out.
Right now, the 360 is ahead due to games and the PS3's power hasn't been exploited. For the gamer and gamer alone, the 360 is good enough, that is until GTA IV comes out :P. But if you're a multimedia freak, the PS3 should be your choice. It has integrated Wi-Fi and a built-in Blu-Ray player. Hard drive storage won't be looked at as both support external hard drives.
Here's the situation we're looking at:
Pro Edition-HD movie experience-Wireless connectivity-HD cables
400 200 100 0
Premium Edition-HD movie experience-Wireless connectivity-HD cables
600 0 0 25
Total: 360 PS3
So if you're big on multimedia, go with the PS3, in the end it's cheaper, and has HDMI, built in card reader, and a larger hard drive.
If you couldn't care less about multimedia, go 360. Plus, it has GoW!
If you're on a budget, go with the Wii.
As for me... I'm going PS3, but I love the multimedia hub functionality, even though it's right next to my computer. Besides, I just love the Metal Gear Solid series!
Take your pick as to which console is for you, just don't start flame wars about it! Dang... I might've just started one...
