We will try to help you make that decision with a few product reviews on the latest gaming consoles on the market.

We will attempt to highlight the strengths and the weaknesses of each console so we can hook you up with the best one suited for you and your family. There is no console that will satisfy all your gaming needs, but our reviews will help you decide what gaming console will fit your personal needs.

The new Micrsoft Xbox 360 comes with a powerful 60GB hard drive, a composite and component cable, Xbox controller and Xbox headset. For the serious gamer, or muli-player you will need to also get an additional controller, a wireless network adapter, Xbox Live membership for online play and you will need to get 120GB hard drive if you plan to download games and movies from the internet.

The Xbox is by far the best console for online gaming as it does set the standard for what online gaming should be like. It has a diverse library of games available and some very good graphics. The Xbox controller works best with all types of action games, especially games that require shooting skills like Halo 3. The Xbox has some flaws that continue to get in the way of it being the top player. You have the dreaded "Red Ring of Death", so if your system fails and needs service, it could be weeks for the replacement. As awesome as the online gaming experience is, the subscription fee of $60 a year can seem a bit excessive. There is no Wi-Fi network connection or Blu-ray support so therefore the Xbox 360 can not serve as your entertainment hub. The good news is any Xbox subscriber can now watch Netflix streaming movies on there console as long as they are members. That sweetens the $60 fee.

The Sony PlayStation 3 will come with a massive 80GB hard drive, a composite cable and controller. You will need to get an extra controller for multi player games, a component cable and a Bluetooth headset for online voice communication. The PlayStation 3 has a large library of games that include some hardcore action, sports and RPG"s. The Blu-ray disc is excellent for some eye-popping movies in HD and for larger games with more content. The Sony PlayStation 3 can be your entertainment hub as it supports MP3s, DiVX, Bluetooth, movie downloads and game downloads. Price however remains an issue being the most expensive console on the market. The online game play is not as good, or does not meet the standard set with the Xbox. The good news is that for only about $100 you can upgrade your storage space to a whopping 320GB, making this the ultimate entertainment hub.

Let us not forget about the Nintendo Wii. The Wii comes with a small internal drive, but is expected to come out with a new MotionPlus attachment in early 2009. Along with the console you get a composite cable, a Wii remote, a Wii Nunchuch and Wii sports games. You will need to get a component cable, additional Wii remotes and nunchucks for multi-player games and SD card for downloads. The wii is less expensive than the other consoles. The game system is different than any of the others. Nintendo Wii has taken a new approach to the gaming experience and has brought the gamer off the couch, out of the arm chair and into the action. The controllers duplicate the motions of the person holding them, bringing you directly into the action. The wii is fun for non-gamers and gamers alike. This system lacks the graphics of the other systems and does not offer the fancy downloads or movie support. The Nintendo Wii is strictly a gaming system.
