The PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Wii have been battling for best game console for some years now and with the addition of PlayStation Move the PS3 has gained a significant boost. Now that the PS3 has PlayStation Move, it may be the best game console to buy?
Each game console has its advantages and disadvantages. The Nintendo Wii has motion controls and casual game play but lacks the fast hardware and graphics of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Xbox 360 has great graphics, media streaming, and excellent online game play, but has a 56% failure rate and the notorious Red Ring of Death. The PS3 doesn’t have any major disadvantages like the Nintendo Wii or Xbox 360 and the addition of the PlayStation move has possibly given the PS3 the advantage it needed over other game consoles.
I own both the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 and I’ve always avoided buying the PS3 using the lack of solid exclusive games (like Wii Fit on the Wii and Halo 3 on the Xbox 360) and only having a Blu-Ray player as an excuse not to buy a PS3 over other game consoles. With the addition of the PlayStation Move, I’ve been forced to take a closer look at the PS3 and I now realize that it offers the best of both other game consoles and adds it own pizzazz into the mix, making it possibly the best of all 3 game consoles.
The PS3 has the great graphics, video streaming, and online game play of the Xbox 360 game console, but it doesn’t suffer from the Xbox 360’s Red Ring of Death and its online gaming is free, unlike the Xbox 360’s Xbox Live (which costs $50 a year). The PS3 has better graphics and internal hardware than the Nintendo Wii and with the addition of the motion controlled game play of the PlayStation Move; the PS3 is now able to compete head on with the Nintendo Wii’s casual and full body game play. In addition to what the other game consoles offer, the PlayStation 3 also serves best as a Blu-Ray player, has the best graphics, and is easily upgradeable without propriety hardware.
The PlayStation Move puts the game console “ball” in the PS3’s hands and has brought everything together in a complete gaming package for gamers. The PS3 was losing the game console war, but thanks to the PlayStation Move, it might be making a run best game console on the market.
