I gotta go with the xbox.
As far as I've seen it looks as good as the PS3 and costs several hundred dollars less.

Also, why is the Wii not in the poll?

When I owned an Xbox, it never saw much use. The 360, though, is blowing me away. Everything Microsoft is doing this generation is a step in the right direction. I'm a life-long Mac user, but my opinion of MS has increased drastically since I picked up a 360 two months ago....
I'm sure I'll get a PS3 at some point, but right now it doesn't seem like it will do anything the 360 can't (game-wise, not talking about Blu-Ray here), at least nothing that justifies the $600 price tag.

Blast you! Now my vote for the 360 is wrong. I would've immediately voted for Wii had it been a choice, but considering many people don't include it in the Console Wars, I assumed that's why it was missing. [Hell, even their 'competitors' think you should buy a Wii.] So yeah, Nintendo's position this time around is a bit unique. That said: Wii and 360 for me; Sony can keep their system for all I care.

A Wii and PS 3 for me.

Hey, Krakow. I investigated what happened and apparentally you entered 'Neo-Geo' as your answer. And it doesn't appreciate you being a smartass.

I'd imagine that was probably my slasher movie deranged alternate personality surfacing briefly.
I believe what I actually said (for posterity) was:

Because everyone will be buying a Wii

I'm voting xbox now, because I already have one. I probably won't get a Wii because I'll either be going to the Air Force Academy in a couple of years or joining the Army as infantry, so I won't have much use for it during those times. I could just wait until the Xbox 720 and the P$4 come out, and the Wii II.

Special note: Wii II actually sounds pretty good. That said, are you kidding? Smash Bros with Snake in it and you want to forego having it available for military types?!

I take it you mean what we will personally buy.

I got a 360 on launch day.  Will most likely get a Wii at launch.  Whether I get a Wii at launch or not I will not be getting a PS3 this year.  Won't pay $600 for it, but in time I will have all three.

Already have my 360 and am loving it so far.  I'll probably get a Wii on launch too.

The PS3 however is too expensive and is doing nothing that the other two consoles aren't.  It's not more innotive, it doesn't appear to be much more powerful, if at all, etc, etc.  We've discussed the PS3 numerous times before and I don't feel like going into it again.
