What system you planing to get
« on: May 11, 2006, 02:44:03 PM »
I have been looking forward to getting this system for the longest time.
Not too keen on the name Wii... but i can live with it.

Reason i've been wanting this system is becasue most of the old games for all previous generations are going to be available... either for free... or cheep DL.

Now they are saying that not only will they have NES, SNES, N64 and GameCube... but they will have best of Sega and TurboGraphic 16 too!!!

if they find tis to be a popular thing... the more 3rd party games are going to be available too.

...too bad its not going to be HD... only improved from 480i to 480p.

anyone else think they may get this?

I will buy the Wii but first I want a PS3.  It will take about a year for me to get over the price of the PS3 before I buy the Wii.

probably going to stick with the PC for most of my gaming needs.

but, the Wii looks like it has a lot of potential and a price point significantly lower than either of the other systems, so I'll probably go that route.

I'll stay with my PC.

btw. I own a N64 too, but I don't play with it a lot.

I want the PS3 first, but MAN is it expensive... I do like the Wii's gyroscopic controller though; very innovative. We'll see if people actually like that though. I mean, what about people that can't move their arms anymore, etc.? No Wii for you! Yeah...Nintento must figure that most people will have arms. Way to check your demographics!  :lol: </rant>

I can't love a $600 console.

Especially since Sony are being such assfaces about it.

And double-especially since I already have a 360, and it appears the majority of the PS3 developers will be developing for the 360 as well, anyway.

However, my wife will probably end up forcing me to buy a PS3 either way.

They do offer the $500 "option"...more like a smaller second asshole they rip you for it.

Aren't they always? Name once they've been nice to the consumer...

You wife Rocks!...lucky Bastard.


If i had to justify buying a PS3 it it would be that it can play HD movies.

the current players out there are nearly twice the price. BluRay or HD-DVD.

That being said i would only buy the $600 unit as the cheaper one does not have the HDMI.

oh and here are ten reasons not to buy PS3 now.
