    Fly Plaything. Fly.
    Genesis does what Nintendon't.

    Life was so much easier when there were only two.

    landfill for about 2 months.

    Nintendo builds tanks.
    Same here, except you can replace the landfill with the contents of my attic... actually they're pretty similar.

    I'm still on my first 360, but I don't play it a whole lot, especially not since it freaked me out by locking up twice in one day playing Forza 2. I won't be buying another one. I have my Wii and PC to keep me warm at night.

    EDIT: Thinking about it, every console before the PS2 never messed me about once. All my golden oldie consoles are original, mostly bought the day they were released. I wonder how much they'll be worth in the future.

    Absolutely nothing... just look at the prices of Intellivision on Ebay. It sucks.

    Meh, I'd never sell them anyway.

    The Wii lost its wondrous attraction about 2-3 days into playing around with it. I am a computer guy though, keyboard/mouse is more intuitive to me for the most part, and game pads are more intuitive than the wiimote, I have a Saitek p990 because of how similar it is to a PS2 controller, and I am considering a PS2 USB hook up for my computer just so I can use those controllers.

    All of this changing the face of video games forever and such seems pretty blah to me, then again I still have a good time playing Dragon Warrior 1 every now and then.

    Metroid Prime 3 rules, Smash Bros will rule (online play!), And Mario Galaxy will rule. Any one of which justifies the price of the console.\

    People were criticizing the DS too when it came out. Turns out, it's a hell of a lot more awesome than the PSP

    Well, I think I've lost 20 pounds playing Wii Sports: Tennis. Whereas PS3 owners have gained 50lbs playing their games.

    Tell me about it. My shoulder is still killing me from last week's tennis surge.

    In other, extremely frustrating news, my 360 officially died last night. I can't fscking believe it - I was blabbering yesterday about it locking up etc (to more people than you lot here) and I go to watch a DVD. Guess what happens? 3. Red. Rings.

    I hope it's still in warranty, I know I said I won't buy another one but damn, Assassins Creed and Kane & Lynch! I doubt I'll get them to run very well on my PC so the 360 is the only way I can play them.

    Fate mocks me.

    It is true. The Wii is fun as hell when used as a drinking game.
    if a contradiction was contradicted would that contradition contradict the origional crontradiction?

    But that just shows how potent its awesomeness is. I mean, it
    has won me over as a fan based on the idea of the machine
    alone. An idea that has a greater potential to change the face of
    gaming as we know it than either the PS3 or the 360.

    The best part of the whole Wii dominating over that kids-toy-PS3
    is that it has validated my predictions. And now, I can rub those
    predictions in your face. Watch.

    *rubs predictions in Indigos face with a dirty rag*

    Oh, looks like somebody just got predictions rubbed all over
    their face. How humiliating for you. Walking around... with
    predictions all over your face. Girls are laughing at you.

    Anyway, 2 hour games are awesome. See, us adults, we have
    things call jobs which sometimes interfere with our ability
    and desire to devote so many hours to a game. Sometimes we
    just want to sit down with a Wiimote in one hand and a flask
    of Absinthe in the other and relax.

    Enjoy your epic titles, though. You know, like Lair and those
    intense 5 hours of Heavenly Sword.



    There's no trolling here. If you choose to get upset at the
    fact that Wii is outselling both the 360 and the PS3, that's your
    issue. If anybody is making hostile comments, it's you. Mindless
    worshiping masses? Ouch. Harsh. Sorry, but you're the only troll
    here, brother. There're no flames coming from me.

    Ban Indigo, please; he's being difficult. Besides, I have a greater
    post count and have been registered at cProg longer than him.
    So, for all intents and purposes... I'm his superior. Just am.
    Ok this just proves your a mindless zombie controled by nintendo almost as bad as the zombies controlled by apple but that is off subject so... O and maby the reason the wii is selling better is because it is newer so less people have them. Even though the wii is newer it is still weaker then the 360 in terms of raw power as far as I know.

    I'm sorry, but he called out ethics pure fanboy bias (having earlier admitted to not even playing the thing much at all) and he gets called out on it? If you like the Wii, good for you. If you act like ethic while liking the wii, you have a problem.
