IGN thinks PS3 is better than Wii

PS3T-minus two days to next year, guys. And while you’re wondering what’s ’07 got in store for us, let’s take a look at some of the better things we’ve seen.

IGN’s hosting an awarding ceremony over at their site, and it’ll be covering the best of what’s happened in 2006. And while it’s a long list, taking a look at what’s been good per console, we’ll be focusing on their “Best Gear of 2006” collection.

Under this category, IGN reports that the best new console of 2006 was *drumrolls* the PS3, the Wii taking second place. IGN chalks up points for the PS3’s sheer processing power, its packaging as a computer rather than as a gaming platform, and the availability of Linux supported distributions.

Sure the console’s still got a long way to go given its slow start,  but given the package’s initial strengths, it’ll be interesting to see what will develop in the near future.

As for the other “Best gear of 2006”:

  • Best Gaming Peripheral: Xbox 360 HD DVD player
  • Best Gamepad: Pelican NERF controller
  • Best PC Peripheral: Ideazon Zboard Fang
  • Best Portable Audio: Microsoft Zune
  • Best HDTV (Panel): Sony BRAVIA KDL-46XBR2 LCD
  • Best HDTV (Projector): Panasonic PA-AX100U
