I’ve owned game consoles for nearly my entire life. I can remember the day my dad brought home our first Nintendo, or the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) as it was known by back then. The system came with Super Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt, and we sat there glued to the TV set playing Duck Hunt all day. It was amazing to think about the aim of the gun and its accuracy, and it’s even more impressive thinking about it looking back.
Consoles have obviously come a really long way since then. Currently, the PS3, Xbox 360, and the Nintendo Wii lead the pack. Personally, I’m a fan of the 360 and the Wii, as I own both consoles. While I do like the PS3 and I think it’s a great product, I don’t think it’s as enjoyable as the Xbox 360 is for me.
With that said, let’s take a look at the Wii and the 360 and put them head to head. Which console is better?
Well, let’s see.
The Xbox 360 is more of a gamer’s console. With titles like Halo and so many others not available on other systems, the gameplay on the Xbox 360 wins out.
The Wii, on the other hand, is loads of fun. The interactive element is truly great, and the games really aren’t so bad themselves.
At the end of the day, which is better really depends on the buyer. For serious games, I’d go with the 360. For more of a fun experience, I’d go with the Wii.
