PS3 will have more power than Xbox 360, play my PS1 and PS2 games,and PS games tend to come down in price faster than Xbox or Nintendo games for the same titles where I live. YMMV

I have PS2, XBOX, and Gamecube. Hate the XBOX, the controller drives me nuts. Gamecube is too cutesy. PS2 is just right. I'm waiting for the PS3, but I'm in no hurry.

PS3 Woot! Now how much will the price tag be on it...?

I choose it because:

I hate Xbox controllers.
It has more games than Xbox.
It has better games than Xbox, so what if Xbox has great graphics? The game itself isn't worth crap unless it's Halo.
And Grand Thefto Auto series is availible on PlayStation way before it makes its way to Xbox...that is if they're allowed to even make another GTA.

That sums it up for me too. I see no reason to give Bill Gates more money for a product that Sony can do better

I might have to finally get an X-box, now that prices are starting to come down. There's enough good games out for me to get my money's worth out of it. I probably would lean more towards the PS2 but for Halo. I love that game. Plus X-box is also the only console I've played enough to get used to the controller for. X-box 360 is too much money (even before you add in the cost of the games), not to mention the overheating problems. PS3...um right, ask me when it actually hits the market.

As far as latest and greatest, if I want that, I do it on my computer. Consoles are best for playing with friends, in which case, your corner of the screen is too tiny for graphics to matter.

Haven't tried out the PS3 yet, but it looks very good. I'm going to try and get my hands on a cheap PS2. They will go down in price when the PS3 comes out.

Revolution mainly because of the ability to play every single Nintendo game ever produced. Any idea how much it'll cost to download these?

Screw great graphics. Give me Excitebike!

I voted Xbox.. there are still games that are good for it, and you can mod them a lot.

Although Saint's Row for the Xbox 360 looks really good.

I go with the Nintendo as I have young kids 2,5,8yr and find their title to be the most acceptable for them to play while having a few I don't mind.

I voted X Box because I've been playing it a lot lately with friends and I've actually gotten used to playing Halo with a controler. I suck at any shooting games where I can't use my keyboard and mouse. I like PC games a lot more than console games because when your system goes out of date, it is cheap to upgrade. I also hate the GameCube. That piece of crap has the graphics of the N64 and the selection of games for it is crap...Mario, Zelda, Sonic...psh...
