People who pay that 400% markup should not only be shot, but drawn and quartered then have their entrails pissed on.

1st Generation Blu-Ray looks pretty f'ing sweet to me. They have a demo at CC with it hooked up to a full HD 1080i tv and it looks better than real life. The disc they play is a demo disc with scenes from Underworld 2 and Spider Man 2. The fight when Spider Man and Doc Ock are on the train. I actually sit down on their couch and watch it everytime I'm there. Wish I had the coin to drop cuz it looks sweet.

I was at CC last night and the freaks were there, camped out for the PS3. Mostly looked like college kids which is what I expected. it's rained here in PA for like 3 days straight so maybe there is a god. I think the PS3 looks way better than Xbox 360 and if I had the money I'd buy one. I just don't undstand how a companies as big as Microsoft and Sony can only sustain a limited release of these items. Make millions and you'd sell them all for Xmas. Duh.

Does anybody know if you can use the Gamecube controller to play the Classic games on the Wii?

I try to line up for the PS3 but I was unsuccessful. There's already a line at all the places that have PS3 in stock.

I even drive 50 miles away to a small city but no luck.

But at least I still have my reservation for Wii!

I'm getting the vibe that the Xbox 360 is the way to go...the PS3 is just too damned expensive, and the Wii is going to be underpowered. The 360 represents the best combination of power, games, and price.

SISO, top one is $9,000 (Source: WBAL)

The Anne Arundel Best Buy had people shoo'd away because "they don't belong" on their property, only they found out they weren't getting any PS3's.

Define "underpowered". That makes no sense. How can you rate a system based on clock speed? If anything it should be rated based on ease of development.

Talk about a bad time of year for the annual bonus to come out. I just got it today at it is already burning a hole in the pocket.

Considering buying the Xbox 360 because the core system is only $299. I don't know, I have no time to play it so I'm sure I won't buy it but all of this talk about new game consoles has me missing the old days when I had the time to play the PS2 or Xbox.

If you have no time to play NINTENDO is the way to go. Load times are the shortest, and they are usually more for people that have short attention spans.

I would not recommend getting the core, as it doesn't come with a hardrive. You'll need this to store media (songs, shows, demos, trailers, movies, etc.)
