PlayStation 3 vs. Nintendo Wii


PlayStation 3 has introduced perhaps the most powerful processor in the history of gaming with their Cell Broadband Engine that will allow for awesome game play to jump start this edition of the PlayStation Empire.  Nintendo Wii has a very good “PowerPC” that they have nicknamed “Broadway” that will allow for a good gaming experience.  Nintendo stepped out and solicited the help of IBM for the production of the Wii processor, meaning that they are seriously looking to re-enter the video game wars.

 One feature of both the Nintendo Wii and the PlayStation 3 that will both impress and excite gamers is the fact that both are backwards compatible, meaning that you don’t have to throw away your favorite games from the previous console.  PlayStation 3 owners will be able to play games from both the previous PlayStation consoles, while Nintendo Wii owners will be able to play Nintendo Game Cube games whenever they want.

 Both consoles are “always on” which means that any communication needed to get updates or make changes to your system will happen without you worrying about being logged on or retrieving important codes.  Both use wireless router technology and are able to connect whether you are at home or even logged on.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of each console is the advent of new controller technology in both the PlayStation 3 and the Nintendo Wii.  The Wii will introduce a long and skinny remote that has motion sensors to pick up your movements and use them within the game.  PlayStation 3 will be introducing the same type of technology to allow a more real and sophisticated experience for every user.
