    I own a Wii and played a 360 at a friend down the street, It really depends on what you are looking for. If you want dazzling graphics and FPS games then 360 (or PS3 if you are willing to sell children into slavery) is the way to go, if you are looking for something for the whole family to enjoy and that has cool games for both kids, adults, and groups of people the Wii is the way to go. Of course there are other factors that you should think about, for instance the Wii comes Wifi ready the 360 needs an attachment for wireless internet which is $150, and the Wii does not have DVD compatability. Nor does it currently have support for online multiplayer.

    any of that or how much money you want to drop.

    depends really, i can't really think of Xbox360 as being the family type console, I'd think that my family would rather play on the wii since its quite unique and nintendo always comes out with great party games.. can't wait for mario party and wario smooth moves on wii

    Wii all the way for me. None of the XBOX 360 games currently available or coming out in the near future really appeal to my gaming tastes.

    ive got a 360 and a wii. the wii only has zelda now and im into FPS and Sports games so i favor the 360. GoW, Viva Pinata, Saints Row, Prey, Oblivion, NBA live, Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Kameo, Fifa, etc, are great on the 360. The wii controls seem to be a cool idea, but for real gaming, the 360 is your best bet. If you have the means i highly recommend picking them both up. You can wait 6 months for the wii though, give time for games to come out and in the meantime enjoy some of the 360 games.

    I just picked up a 360 last week, and i can say it's completely different than my wii.

    if you have an HDTV, the 360 makes gaming look so nice. The wii as everyone knows is not about the graphics, but gameplay. The 360 has a ton of good games right now, gears of war, ghost recon, halo series.. etc. The wii is a good family console, for pretty much anyone. the xbox 360 is for people who plays video games a lot more than the average person.

    They both have some good strengths. I think the Wii beats out the 360(and PS3) in it's innovation and general fun factor. The 360 definitely has a one up on hardware though. In the end good hardware and graphics don't necessarily make for a great game and for that I think the Wii comes out on top.

    yep Xbox360 definitely beats all in hardware, 3 CPU and most games not even using the power of all 3, ps3 has the advantage in floating pointing point work, and wii is all about the family fun, innovation with its new controller, classic games that you just can't miss (mario, zelda, metroid)
