    PS3. Backwards compatibility FTW! Its like buying 3 consoles for the price of one. Then there's the incredibly awesome hardware.

    As far as backwards compatibility goes, that's pretty sweet. They've all got good things going for them, but the fact that PS3 allows three generations of games to be played on it without modding is pretty cool, imo.

    I'm not a console gamer, but that's one thing I know would draw me to the specific system.

    Not when numbers of the PS3 are so limited.

    who cares about backwards compatibility? Who can honestly say after a year or more of games for the new generation, you were stuck on the old one. It just doesn't work.

    Why have 2 consoles when you only need 1?

    I just got a 60GB PS3. Kicks ass. \Backwards compatability is an amazing plus for me. I have never owned a console before. I now have a 2000 something game library to choose from, and a Blu-Ray DVD player. (as well as Genji which kicks ass!). PS3 for lyfe!

    Well, PS3 is far superior then the rest. Only thing is that it is still hard to find.

    I had a PS3 I didn't like it at all. It's way too overated. The graphics were very good but I beileve for so many processors they can be better. I did like the touch sensitivity on the controller though. But I played Wii once and I loved it. Only reason I stopped because my arms were tired. Now I am personally a Xbox man. So I am going to go with the 360. Due to fantastic graphics with a reasonable price and a great library of games. But that's just my personal opinion.
