How exactly is that failing? It's easily the most innovative games machine since they first appeared.

Theadore - I'm just rubbish at it. That's how. ;)

Don't start Phil, you lost what little credibility you had when you used to claim the PS2 was the best machine of the last generation.

You need to understand, just because you own something - that doesn't make it the best. ;)

Wii is a gimmick, it will go the same way as the 'cube and let the PS3 and 360 battle it out for supremacy :whistle:

Why anyone would buy a PS3 is beyond me. Wii is the way forward and is the console that I will be getting to go with my PS2

I gotta admit despite my recent investments in gaming... my gaming days are in a serious decline. Being replaced by work, american football and the gym. I've got more grit and determination than i've ever had before and its already working wonders for me. I feel great, i'm not sat on my arse all day anymore playing games. I'm earning cash and i'm improving my sorry situation. Hopefully next time we all meet up for a game I'll be a different Jamie to the one a couple of you saw a few years back now. :-D

I do say my gaming days are in decline... but they haven't gone away... Medieval Total War 2 is seeing to that! :-D

Jim, what's going on with the downer you have on yourself? Just accept the way you are and be happy.

The only chance of me getting a PS3 is if they severly reduce in price and have some quality games that arent on the 360. Being modifiable would also help :whistle:

The Wii may be a gimmick, but it's a clever one, and it's moved the goalposts for their competitors. Why would anyone want an out-dated joypad when you can have much more fun doing the actions with the controller? What does the PS3 have that will make it so much better than the PS2?

i just don't understand why anyone would buy a PS3 when you could get a 360 and a wii and have change for the same price
