    As far as handhelds go, the PSP smashes the competition. Its amazing what they can fit on that tiny screen.

    Xbox 360 no doubt. Great online, great controller, great interface, great games. I love my PS3, and Wii(even though it broke, I would really like to play Epic Mickey ) But if I had to choose one it would be my xbox.

    My PC

    I play one game - and one game only. UT2004. I map and mod - I live it. It runs on my computer at the worst of times.

    I have the whole variety of game-consoles and always found the game selections to be crappy and slim, unentertaining - boring. An expensive waste of money and time. Some games I do like are finicky. Graphics are ****tacular compared to PC - overall - game consoles suck.

    PC, by a pretty large margin. I play a ton of PC games.

    The Wii gets used quite a bit when people are over (lots of good party games on it).

    The PS3 gets used far more often for music and movies than games, although lately I've really gotten hooked on the God of War series.

    For portable gaming I've got a DS, but I honestly don't play it all that often.

    It depends on your needs, and how you order your entertainment system. The PS3 provides a good gaming experience while also providing high-definition video, audio, and Netflix capability + Internet browsing (if you want to go to the trouble to get a decent OS). That makes it the single best item on the list in terms of bang for your buck. The Xbox 360 is the fan favorite for social gaming; it is much easier to organize a gaming party around Xbox 360s than PCs or PS3s.

    I (grudgingly) admit that I did get a lot of use out of my PS3 during the two or so years it worked.

    I've seen PC games, and I can't really see a difference in graphics from the 360, and PS3. They're all about the same.

    Depends on what kind of rig you have and what kind of console you're comparing it to though. PS3 has some pretty impressive graphics. Definitely on par with most mid-range PCs. A high-end gaming PC will generally beat out any console though.

    It's not a uniform thing. Certain games from certain developers on certain builds.

    If so, it doesn't seem worth the money to build a high end gaming PC, that will cost over a grand, when for that money I could have all 3 consoles, and I doubt the difference is that amazing.

    No, but since a gaming computer functions as a regular computer (and anything else you want to build it into), it might be more cost-effective to combine the different technologies into one PC. Again, relative to your tastes and needs.

    Computers also have a virtual monopoly on real-time strategy games, and other more or less obscure genres.
