    First of all, come back to EntropySink. Second, check these out:

    (IGN Review) http://youtube.com/watch?v=JIDEiIrKkaw

    Don't worry about the spoilers the IGN review warns you about;
    you'll forget about them before the game comes out.

    Third. Sell your xBox 360 because it's just going to brick soon
    anyway. I believe that's what they call it. Bricking. To Brick.

    And skim this thread:

    All the consoles I own, I also emulate on my PC because it is more convenient for me (it is legal due to the fact that I own, and made sure to get matching bios if I couldn't rip it myself) I don't own any of this generations consoles but my roommate does own a wii and 360, I have to say, I play the 360 more, often times when I am going to play games, I just got off a 10-12 hour shift, then went to the gym for an hour or two, then I come home and honestly do not have the energy for 'active' gaming. Just my 2c

    It takes no more energy to play a Wii game than any other game.

    Indeed. With a little practice I've managed to play golf sitting down, with barely more movement than when playing any other game.

    I'm very fidgity anyway - I often forget that rotating the controller doesn't help me steer in Forza 2... leading me to the reason why I'd never sell my 360.

    I remember when I was a confused nintendo fanboy, the world was so small, remembering only the past . I bet he posts on the official nintendo forums.

    Remember the old Nintendo Power magazines? weren't they great?

    I remember that I used to subscribe to the magazine called "Game Informer" as a kid. At this point in time, the 16-bit consoles had been out for a few years, and the new 32-bit consoles (that very brief period before 64-bit came into play) were coming into the market.

    A concerned subscriber wrote to "Game Informer", saying that he was concerned about the trends in the market. Everybody was going for the new 32-bit consoles, and most gaming magazines were abandoning the 16-bit consoles in order to cover the news on the 32-bit ones. This concerned subscriber asked "Game Informer" to please not move away from the 16-bit consoles, because they were his favorite.

    The editor of "Game Informer" responded in the magazine, saying: "We will never abandon those 16-bit jewels."

    ha....right....that was a short lived "never"....

    "never" within reason. It was just the "next gen" transitions of today, but back then. Games stop being made for 16-bit consoles after a while, which is why it didn't make sense to keep talking about them. There are still articles in GI (looks to side at magazine) that highlight some of the older games, mainly in featurette articles, but what news is there to be made from old news.
