My Top 5 Game Consoles<br />By Marcos Gonzalez <br />2º ESO A, 2010-2011<br />Instituto español V. Cañada Blanch<br />Londres <br />
Introduction<br />In this presentation I will be naming my top 5 favourite game consoles.<br />I will dedicate a slide to each console explaining why I've chosen that position for each one.<br />LETS START THE PRESENTATION!<br />
Nintendo Wii<br />The Wii is a console which consists in moving the controller to be in control of the game .<br /><ul><li>I've chosen the Nintendo Wii as my least favourite game console for several reasons:
Graphics : They are not as good as they should be, considering Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are their main rivals.
Controller: It’s very difficult to use and it doesn’t have enough instructions on how to use it. I find it dangerous because it could slip out of your hands and hit the person next to you , or even smash the television.
Accessories: They are not very useful, for example the Classic Controller Pro because in many games this controller is not needed.
Not everything in the Wii is bad, there are some things that I like, such as:
Multiplayer: You can play with a lot of people at the same time.
Fun: You’re never still and your always moving around and it’s fun.
Games: Some games have to do with someone's Physical fitness for example: Wii Fit</li></li></ul><li>Number 4 <br />
Nintendo DSi<br /><ul><li>The Nintendo DSi is a handheld game system created by Nintendo and released by 2008 and 2009.
I've chosen Nintendo DSi as my 4th favourite game console for different reasons:
Mobility : it’s very good because I can take it whereeverI want.
Features: It has a camera, it has internet connectivity and the home screen is fun.
Games: Some of them are very good, for example: Brain Training which stimulates the mind and fun games like Mario Bros.
The reason why Nintendo Dsi isn’t higher on my list is because:
Games: A lot of games don’t have as good graphics as we would like them to have in a handheld game system.
Design: I don’t see the point of having two screens instead of one big one.
Stylus: I don’t see the point of having to use the pen instead of using your fingers.</li></li></ul><li>Number 3<br />
PlayStation Portable<br /><ul><li>PSP is not my favourite handheld game system console, although I like it more than Nintendo DSi because:
Design: The screen is quite large it looks very good and it attracts you to go and play it.
Games: The games have good graphics compared to its rival Nintendo DSi.
Accessories:It’s got better accessories such as: the cases and memory sticks, and ithasa webcam.
Price: It’s from £100-£150 which is not bad at all for what you get.
Connectivity: You can buy games from your PSP without going to the shop.
UMD discs: they are very weird because of their shape.
Pirating: theyarelosing money because people are hacking games from the PSP, which is illegal.
It’s not first or second because, overall, it isn’t as good as PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 which have better graphics.</li></li></ul><li>Number 2<br />
Play Station 3<br />PlayStation 3 is my 2nd favourite game console because:<br />Resolution: The graphics are 1080p which means it has higher definition.<br />Exclusive games : For example: Uncharted series, Little Big Planet, Kill zone,...etc.<br />Connectivity: Free internet, built in Wi – fi, Bluetooth controller connection.<br />Play Station Move: it’s good because it is interactive .<br />PlayStation Store: You can download full games or demos .<br />Play Station Move : although it’s interactive and fun you cannot use the controller for many games, plus they are very expensive.<br />Exclusive games: they don’t sell as many copies as Xbox 360exclusive games .<br />Price: Although its been reduced a bit throughout the years it’s still expensive compared to Xbox 360.<br />
Xbox 360<br />Xbox 360 is my favourite game console because :<br />Resolution: The graphics 1080i, which is lower than 1080p (which Ps3 has)<br />Exclusive Games: For example: Gears Of War, Halo3 ....etc., which sell more than Ps3 exclusives.<br />Kinect: (coming soon): consists of a camera that can recognize your movements in order to play the game (no controller is needed) .<br />Price: The Xbox 360 is quite cheap.<br />Bad things about Xbox 360:<br />Connectivity: You have to pay to play online.<br />Technical faults : Poorly made machine, it causes technical errors such as The Ring of Death, preventing you from playing the Xbox.<br />
