I'm more of a recreational gamer than a hardcore dude too - but by the time it's all said and done I always end up with each of the big-3 consoles.  It's not about the platform for me, it's about the game.  I bought an Xbox for the variety and to start with Medal of Honor, then I bought a Gamecube (with some helpful advice from Matt on getting the good bundle) for Zelda and Resident Evil Zero, and I finished up by buying a PS2 for King's Field and the remaining Resident Evil games.

That's not to say I don't find lots of other games I want to play - but I'm not above buying all the different hardware (eventually).

I'll eventually have 'em all, too--I'm a console agnostic--but I'm a hell of a lot more excited about the Wii than anything else at this point.

Up until the first Playstation, I had pretty much everything - PS, Sega Genesis, N64, SNES, NES, and some other stuff mixed in there too.  For some reason, I never bought a Dreamcast... then I skipped the PS2... then the X-Box, etc.

I just don't have as much time to devote to video games as I did back in the olden days... funny that my gaming decreased just as my "dorky star wars website" career started up.  :P


Anyway, yeah - PS3 is cool and all but I'm saving my cash for the Revolution... er, Wii.

I don't either - probably 1/3rd of the 50 or so games I've bought since 4 years ago when I bought my first of the current generation consoles are still wrapped in plastic.

PS2's aren't designed to double as DVD players.

Then why do they play DVD's?

I thought it was fairly obvious that by what I said, it was implied they weren't designed to be EVERYDAY USE DVD PLAYERS, but I guess not, so here;

I'll be picking one up, but I am not happy about the prices, $500 or $600!!!

Everytime a new gen system comes out it jumps $150-200.  This hobby is getting too expensive and pricing out the kids.

Those sneaky bastards.

Good thing I'll eventually have all 3 systems, with the Wii possibly being bought first.

I'm digging the Halo and Bonus GTA stuff, so for the first time I'm actually considering XBOX over PS3... but I won't be an online gamer. So the whole MP thing is lost on me. I'll probably just wait for the price to dip before I even try to decide which of the two I want.

So, they're designed to spin video game disks every day, but not DVD movie disks?  A task that takes significantly fewer system resources?

While you're at it, do you have anything else you'd like to pull out of your ass?

My local Target last night was nuts...  three separate groups of people camping out.   :o

1 - People camping out for the Exclusive "Cities 97 CD Sampler" (promo from a local radio station) that was released today

2 - People camped out for PS3 (Friday)

3 - People camped out for Wii (Sunday)
