With the bananza of the PS3 launch, and the Wii shortly there after, I figured it was time for a poll. The 360 will be included because MS is running on all rotary's....err.. cylinders with new game releases.

RULES: No flaming anyone or anything. just vote and state your reasoning. lets keep it clean, but it'll be interesting to see how the nvnews crowd goes:)

To buy: GoW, THP8

Just bought: Fight Night Round 3, DOA4, Dead Rising, Ghost Recon

I'm also getting a router so I can use xbox live, any good demos out there?

I plan to get the gears of war game for the X360, a PS3 if I can find one but my main purchases will of course be computer hardware. Hopefully hardware for a conroe based system.

Ive had a 360 since launch and recently bought Gears of War which turned out to be a truly amazing game , I plan on buying a Wii & Zelda on launch. Ill get a PS3 eventualy but honestly no launch games interest me.

ya know, as the launch date gets closer, maybe we could bribe a mod into making this thread a sticky. Just to see the pulse of the console gamers here at nvnews. maybe? please? :) :)

I probably won't find a PS3 in retail stores so I'm gonna hold off until my birthday early next year. Xbox360 and Wii will come hopefully summer 07. For this, I didn't vote in the poll.:p

Getting a PS3...

Then reselling and putting that towards my new rig. :D

I would like to buy a Wii . . . but I'm getting a 32" Samsung LCD instead.

Computer hardware for me!
I wanted a PS3, but my eyes glazed over and my wallet opened when I saw the 8800GTX on the shelf at my store (nana2) . I'll likely buy a PS3 after the first of the year.

11-14-06, 09:27 PM
I voted PS3, but I'm going for that an computer hardware. You can never have enough of either. :D

11-14-06, 09:34 PM
heh, by the sounds of it, we are all adults and just treating ourselves to presents! since im in college i better hold off on any pc upgrades. i figure in a year or two ill buy a nice 8800gtx sli/quad core rig ;)

The 8800gtx was my xmas present to myself, already have a 360 since launch.

11-15-06, 07:38 AM
neither wii or ps3 for me im going to buy a bunch of new 360 games.

11-15-06, 07:48 AM
Wii, extra controller, Zelda and Raving Rabbids for me. Might as well pick up a retro controller and HD cables too. Hoping for good luck at the Walmart midnight sale.

I think I've done all my major purchasing for the year. I got a 360 not too long ago, and recently bought GoW and Viva Pinata. I was tempted to get the 360 Harmony remote, but I added it to my wishlist.

I'll be shopping for friends/family. Not that I've got a frigging clue what to get any of them! :D

Hoping for good luck at the Walmart midnight sale.

Are all Wal-Marts going to be open at midnight?

Are all Wal-Marts going to be open at midnight?

I think so, but I'm going to call ahead on friday night/saturday morning to my local one to make sure.

11-15-06, 08:36 AM
Most WalMarts are open 24 hrs/day . . . some might still not be. If I had tomorrow night off of work, I'd go camp out and try to grab one.

11-15-06, 09:23 AM
Might wanna make sure on that, we have 4 Walmarts in town and none of them are open 24 hrs.

11-15-06, 10:25 AM
Every Walmart I've ever been to is 24 hours. Not saying they all are but I've yet to go to one that isn't. They usually close the electronics section down around 11 though, but there's been a couple of times when they did midnight sales (like for Zelda:OOT).

11-15-06, 10:40 AM
i know the compusa near me will be open from 9pm till midnight on thanksgiving day, then 5am till midnight black friday. geez

I might have to pick up a Wii just to play Zelda, I already have the Gamecube version paid off but I would just put that balance towards the Wii... I need a good action-adventure game to play.

11-15-06, 11:00 AM
For me, it's a Wii, Zelda, and a retro controller.
