They had 4 premiums and would only let me buy 2. I bought two, sold one on ebay close to christmas time and pretty much made my money back on the one I kept. So I pretty much got a free 360 and probably will do the same thing with the ps3 because I have preorders on it at 4 different stores hoping I can get a couple early.
I'll give you an extra 100 spot if you hook me up with one. Just a shot in the dark. I got 600 for one when they come out, but no pre-ordered one. If you get the 60gig one, I'll give you 700 for it.

See my solution, just find you two ps3's or more and sell the extras and get a 360 as well. You can easily make a decent profit from selling the extras right after release date on ebay.

I'm not much of a gamer (ok, I'm not a gamer at all), but could definitely see playing a MotoGP game. As far as playing the 360 online, do you just use an internet connection, or do you have to use a phoneline? Reason I ask is because I don't have a phoneline for the house, and don't plan on getting one. I have cable internet so I'd need to know if it works with that.

nintendo's new invention. Nintendo is stuck as a children's gaming system. They always have some decent games though.

Nintendo was sweet with the 8 bit system. Tecmo Bowl was king. Super Nintendo and everything since has blown goats for quarters.

There was nothing like the 105 yard deep tecmo bowl bomb. I still play it sometimes on the net. There are all kinds of leagues and updates for it through emulators and roms. College versions too.

The bomb was clutch and it was always there.

The Wii will have some good stuff but will fail like virtual boy..X360 and Ps3 are here to stay. The only factor is going to be costs and if Blu Ray takes off. I think that the PS3 wont be as popular as the last models and the 360 will be more popular than the regular xbox was. But i have to say that Xbox Live is where its at, no contest.

Yep, 360 vs PS3 is not going to be a battle of gaming systems. It's going to be a much bigger battle of technology. Blu ray vs HDDVD, which ever wins will win the gaming battle as well.

Best technology not always wins either. Look at Beta max vs VHS. Beta max was better but we see who won that one. Beta max was sony btw. They don't have history on their side, but you never know. It depends on which way movie companies start swinging that will decide the outcome.

I disagree with that statement... Sure Nintendo has a history of cutsying up some games with cartoony characters... However, think of Resident Evil 4 on Gamecube before making snap judgements... I think if Nintendo's funky controller works well and game developers exploit it... It could be huge. (think of new Resident Evil... where your slashing motion with the controller actually does the stabbing...) Not to mention the ability to download your favorite old NES, SNES, N64, and possibly Gamecube games... Again, lots of potential...

I am not holding my breath, but I am also not counting Nintendo out... I am also not making the mistake of discounting their new machine as a child's toy... Honestly, I could see myself shelling out $150 for one of those before $400+ on another system...

NES was the shiznittlebang! Though N64 is my all-time favorite system... Wave Race, Mario64, Mario Kart 64, MK 4, Bond, Turok, F-Zero X, Excitebike 64, etc... Plus, I am yet to hold a controller that felt better in my hands... Less fatigue than any other...

True dat... The only thing is... Sony probably won't make the same mistakes twice... I see Blu Ray advertising going through the roof to coincide with the PS3's release...

How can u compare the wii and the virtual boy....the wii will rock....i promise...Personally I think i will like the 360 more....but i wouldnt be surprised if nintendo took home the whole she bang....and u guys are right....blu ray vs HDDVD.....blu rays goin down...I have always been a PS guy...but i am also a business guy and sony is sinking too much money into the system....the ps2 and the original xbox both sold for around $200 below cost it took to make.....the 360 sells for $350 less than what it costs to make and the PS3...$650 less!!!!!...Take the resources both companies have and with sonys current billion dollar battery recall....their 10 billion in resources doesnt seem like much compared to microsofts 70 billion and bill gates extra 54 billion pocket money....lol
...all of them are gonna be sweet though
