Which Console Manufacturer Do You Prefer?
I started out with Atari, Nintendo, SEGA and then Microsoft Xbox. After I got my original Xbox, I was hooked for life. I can say with certainty that it will be years (if ever) before I switch.

I now have the Xbox 360 and if MS makes another gaming system in that line I will more than likely own it as well. I have never owned a SONY gaming system although I have played Playstation 1, 2 and 3 quite a bit, I prefer Xbox.

Which gaming system manufacturer do you prefer (if any)?

Wildcard is awesome.

I hear that a lot from PS3 guys. To me the controller is too small to be comfortable. At first I thought it might be about different hand sizes, but I actually have very average sized hands so maybe it is just the way you approach the controller.

To me the Xbox controller is just right.

Kinda weird how that works . . .

but it goes way back to almost 20 years ago.

look how similar the ps1, ps2, and ps3 pads look:

some might say they simply didn't bother to make substancial changes to the pads,
but i see it differently: there's in fact very little to improve - these pads are almost perfect.

The PS3 controller is awful.

The original PSX controller was pretty good but when they bunged the sticks on like that, it was horrendous. They aren't placed very well at all.

To each his own . . . but I agree with Semprini, the analog sticks are a little close together. The Xbox controller is more ergonomic.

I liked Sony for the legendary titles like WWE and NJPW wrestling, and other 3D graphics.

But that doesn't mean it's the best. As I recall, Nintendo's "Super Famicom" also had good (16-bit) graphics when 16-bit graphics was cool. One reason I like it was that it was home to many RPG, arcade-style games, and sports games, all at once. That is not to say that Sony's systems don't have them, but SNES (a.k.a. Super Famicom) had it first.

My two cents.
