I am deciding which console to buy and I still do not make my mind. So all comes to the only question that matters

Which of them is the best for accessing GMC ? tongue.gif

Does the high definition lessons work fine??

I have Wii and I was able to access old player lessons before, haven't tried it since smile.gif But I don't know, I didn't like how Wii accessed the internet, it was pretty slow to navigate through pages etc possibly those other two consoles have better internet ability...

Thanks for the answer, Bogdan.

I am just imagining of seeing GMC lessons in 32'' screen, while my wife is using the computer...

So it would be nice if it worked fine. Let's wait for someone with ps3 and xbox to say something.

You can't browse the internet with an Xbox 360.

if you can find a way to download the lessons, you can watch them through your xbox on the tv....however...consols arent meant for that, none of them are...if your best bet for that is getting a "TV" out device to connect from your computer to TV

Great! Looking forward for the answer as PS-3 is probably my first choice.

HaHAHa well the Wii's navigating the internet sucks! PS3 is okay for some websites like say you were to get on facebook, you cant check your messages or notifications etc. Xbox 360 is better for online. PS3 online is boring and no one talks. I would go for the 360 but if your looking for a console to connect to the internet definatly the PS3.

that picture isnt even of the same person!

the ps3 DOES NOT have ANY GAMES that beat the xbox 360 in graphics, why? because no developer has taken the time to utilize the ps3s power, they CAN have better graphics, but now they DONT

They will eventually...if M$ can stop writing blank checks to recruit exclusives....*sigh* sellout developers, noone has a sense of loyalty anymore

Anyways, I checked...GMC does "show up" on PS3...but it doesn't play lessons due to the flash player needing an upgrade. (It plays the welcome video though lol) Regardless I'm with Marc...hook up a computer or laptop to the TV. Will work 10x better imho.

Metal Gear Solid 4 looks better than pretty much anything in my opinion. The facial expressions are completely believable, and even though the faces still technically mouth japanese most of the time its still pulled of well. The environments are utterly beautiful, this game really makes use of 1080p, Its amazing.



EDIT


Also, If you have a 1080p TV, PS3 Will look better I think. Blu-Ray has a stronger impact when it comes to Hi-def, and the Xbox's HDDVD is good, no its great, but when put to a 1080p comparison against PS3, it fails.

By the way, I own both consoles and think 360 is an overall better buy for the average gamer (Unless your a MGS Fanboy like me smile.gif )



EDIT2

PS3 is probably best for internet browsing, It just has twice the capabilities for it compared to 360 or Wii (50 times compared to the Wii actually laugh.gif )

Then again, Wii isnt in it for graphics its in it for gameplay, which it offers a kind 360 and PS3 dont offer (at least for now, we all saw E3 I think )

I don't know about the 360, but I would have to imagine its browser is a lot better than the PS3's, considering Microsoft has a lot more experience with that than Sony. Say what you want about Internet Explorer, it's a damn sight better than the PS3's browser. GMC will *work*, videos will load, but the browser is pretty terrible.

The Wii is really for kids... I bought one a few months ago and what I can say is that the games are nice but only if you play with some friends. Otherwise, they are pretty boring I think. Always full of Mario and stuff. But I am a big player on PC so perhaps I am a little bit blasé.

And as long as Guitar Hero is available on the three machines, I would go for an Xbox or PS3. tongue.gif
XBox has Gears of War which is an absolutely cool game!

I am going to sell my Wii by the way. wink.gif
