    I'm thinking of getting a new system, but I dunno which one. I need youse guys opinion. I probably won't be able to get online with either one. And also please no 'Get nya cause the nya sucks'. Also I put a list of what two games I'll get most likely.

    WIIshlist
    Metroid Prime 3
    Twighlight Princess

    X Wish 360 list-thing
    Blue Dragon
    Eternal Sonada

    I like both, I'd recommend the Wii for you based on the games you're getting.

    I wouldn't buy a 360 if Blue Dragon and Eternal Sonata are what you're pumped about. Blue Dragon is pretty good, and Eternal Sonata I personally hated with passion but others seem to like just "okay". They're really nothing special.

    I was exactly the exact opposite. I loathed Blue Dragon and found Eternal Sonata amusing. If those are the only games you're concerned about, though, I'd definitely take a looksie at the Wii. The Xbox 360 has so much more available for it, but not much in the way of RPGs (which appears to be your prime concern). Still, I'm pumped for Lost Odyssey.

    Is Blue Dragon that bad? I heard it was a nice throwback to old RPGs. I'm leaning even more towards WII, if I can find it.

    I can't recommend that anyone buy an Xbox 360 until they finally fix it. A 33% failure rate is simply not acceptable. Especially since it's biggest selling point is the online play, which you apparently won't be doing.

    Even if you have no online connection I'd still recommend a 360 over the Wii.

    It's a nice throwback if all you want is a rehash of every other JRPG ever made.

    Yeah, pretty much that. I wouldn't really say Blue Dragon is bad, so much as it didn't do anything good either (what?!). Just play Final Fantasy V and you'll have played Blue Dragon too.

    If those are the only games you're really considering at this point for your 360, I'd recommend the Wii over the 360. The 360 doesn't seem to have an abundance of what you're looking for on the 360.

    Those aren't the only games. I was thinking about Dead Rising and Devil May Cry 4 (I think that's on 360).

    360. I've played both and although I found the Wii a lot of fun there's no real depth. Getting drawn into games is one of the reasons I game in the first place.

    So, if you want depth choose the 360 and if you want a bit of fun choose the Wii.

    What do you mean by "a bit of fun"? I may generally prefer the Wii over the 360, but I wouldn't describe the 360 as lacking in fun. Both systems have games that can crack a smile, methinks. The Wii just happens to be advertised as having the ability to do that.

    It really depends on the kind of game you want to play. If you want the stuff Nintendo are good at (ie, Mario and Zelda), go for the Wii. If you want absolutely anything else, you want a 360.
