eBay has been cracking down on it, thanks to pressure, so you might end up with three PS3s that you can't sell...heh.

wtf?!?!! that is crap!!!! how dare they

but how does that work then? b/c i found the following on the web site:

Quote:
GAME CUBE COMPATIBILITY:
The Wii is backward-compatible to all Nintendo GameCube games and includes four ports for controllers and two slots for memory cards
Quote:
MEDIA:
A single self-loading media bay plays single- or double-layered 12-cm optical discs for the Wii console, as well as 8-cm Nintendo GameCube discs
why are they making us download them when we can use the discs???

Oh you can use the GameCube discs in the Wii. There's no worries about that.

It's the N64 and previous games that you'll have to download off of the Virtual Console service.

The average gamer is around 30 years old these days.

I'll be picking up a Wii. Maybe a 360 next year sometime. I won't be getting a PS3 til the price comes down to earth.

i've always been a playstation person (well... was a nintendo person first but, uh, yea)... i'm so used to the PS/PS2 controller that i don't really want to switch, but that price is fairly ridiculous.

GTA4 comes out next October... and, unlike GTA3 and it's succesors, it's initial release won't be PS exclusive... it will ship for PS3 and XBOX360 on the same day.

So I figure I have until August/September to decide... read the different reviews and go from there... if the PS3 comes down in price 100 bucks there's no argument... but I find it hard to believe that the PS3 is worth 150 to 250 more than the 360

People actually considering buying a PS3. You fall victim to the Playstation name, not seeing how badly Sony has been screwing things up with this console, and fail to see the dozens of soon-to-be-classic games coming out on the 360. It's not all war games and first-person shooters anymore folks. This generation, all the best RPG's are going to be 360 bound. Seriously. Check it out. Plus, you simply CANNOT beat Xbox Live for the online experience.

That is a crying shame. Gone are the days when parents can use videogames to distract the children from their reality of being neglected.

I hardly know who my real parents are. I was raised by Mario and Luigi.

Ah the good ol days.

PS3 for me i think. Although if truth be told i don't really play a huge variety of games. I mainly play Pro Evo 6 (the best football game of them all) and it's better on PS2 than it is on the Xbox360. And i think the playstation control pad rules high and mighty over the rest for its simplicity and comfort.

GTA4

familiarity with the controller... that's more or less my only reason for remaining loyal to the PS brand. i HATED the XBOX controller... too big and clunky. have yet to use the one for 360... will certainly check it out. but, alas, if the prices for PS3 stay through the roof, i'll switch to 360... but i'm more than happy with my PS2 up until GTA4 comes out.
