Well I know I'm baised, and I'm sorry about that. I've learned a lot from a few folks on this here board though (and opted to keep my opinions to myself). But yeah, I just wanted to see who was pumped for these new systems. They're about to be released. I would've expected to see some folks chomping at the bit to get one.

I may get a Wii in about a year or so, when there's some sweet games for it. And when I know for a fact whether or not it's a success.

As for the PS3, I may have to get one when Fumito Ueda (Shadow of the Colossus & Ico) makes a game for it Crying or Very sad But hopefully that will be when the system has seen a price drop.

Right now I'll sit tight with my 360. But yeah, I'm a little shocked nobody has been saying anything about the newest systems. (I looked through 4 pages of this section, so I might have missed something... but I don't think so).

Of course it's all about the games -- and I've flat out not seen any games for the PS3 which I consider interesting. Then, of course, there's the matter of price.

:l

Mmm, games.

I'm getting the PS3, but probably not till 2007. Haven't seen anything among the launch titles that I'd be interested in.

But then again, it's not really about the launch titles since I already have plenty of games I wanna play - they're just for the PS2, and they're in Japanese. Hence why getting the PS3 would be worth it for me - NA and Japan are in the same region on that sucker. 8D

I think is kinda obvious what I'm gonna get. I have been saving money on a Wal-mart gift card since this past summer. I'm only about $30 short but, there is one more payday left before it's realesed so I got no problem. Plus I have Twilight Princess reserved so I can pick it up on my next payday. Wink

Yup, most feedback on the Wii has all been real nice, and it's cheaper than the other systems comin' out.

Also, with backwards compatability, it's like a better GC replacement even without any new games.

I just sure hope SSBB is cool enough to outdate its predecessor (sp?). :/

The wii has me interested, but I swore off nintendo after they screwed me with the gamecube. The gamecube had maybe 5 good games for it: Mario Sunshine, Eternal Darkness, RE4, Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, and Tales of Symphonia. It was a blocky piece of crap.
Ps3 should be pretty good, I've seen a video of heavenly sword which looks incredible and of course their is MGS4.
I'll probably end up getting both of them in the end.

I like the sound of both but PS3 sounds expensive and haven't heard to many games for it that would interest me, will consider getting it more when Final Fantasy 13 comes.
At the moment I'm more interested in the Wii because it's coming out soon, better prices, more games of interest for a moment......etc.......... Like the new Zelda and Smash Bro's. Plus I like how it can take Gamecube games, memory cards and controllers, aswell as it's own.

I dunno, $600 just seems a little too steep for a PS3. Maybe I'll get one sometime in the far future when there is a price drop. As for the Wii it'd probably be my second choice console out of the new gen, mainly for it's cheaper price tag. As for now, I'm happy with my 360.

Well the PS3 has some of the elements of both the 360 and the Wii. Its has a classic style controler like 360 and has a motions detector like to Wii. (As shown on "L.A.I.R") The price of 400 to 1000 was confused with Gran tourismo HD's "Buy to Buy" system. you pay from the range of .05 to $5 to earn cars. When you earned alot of cars it ranges from fourhundred to one thousand dollars.

Not cool. Not cool at all.

The price is about $600 but all game critics say you are getting your money's worth and more! ^^

Maybe, but for most people it's still the games which will determine how much the system is really worth it.

PS3 controller only has tilt sensitivity, it can't (directly) detect motion and it doesn't let you "point and click" at the screen like the Wii remote can. Menu navigation on the PS3 will still depend on using analog sticks and buttons, whereas with the Wii you can simply point-and-click like you would with the DS stylus or a PC mouse.

The point-and-click capability of the Wii remote opens doors to genres and types of gameplay that are difficult-to-impossible to replicate using the standard controller. Point-and-click adventure, and real-time strategy, to name just two genres.

I originally hated the wii name, but now I like it because I pronounce it as why. The logo is also pretty great. If I hear anyone pronouncing it wee though I'm going to correct them.

Ooops. I miss calculated the tax on the Wii. It turns out that I was adding 60% tax instead of 6%! Looks like I'm closer than I thought. Now, if only this week would go a little faster. Rolling Eyes

According to someone who's already got the PS3, it's not region-free; it is for PS3 games but unfortunately not PSX/2 games.


Fuck. This sure puts a hole in my happiness. D:

So apparently the console is region-free, but the old games are still region-locked themselves.
