  • I suppose that's a decent enough launch lineup, but it sure as hell isn't a $600 lineup, and it isn't a $500 lineup either

    Still waiting I guess. There are some pretty awesome looking rpgs in dev for it, but those won't surface till end of next year at the earliest. I'm not really sure what could come out soon that would really push me me into the 'gotta have it' camp.

    It's an impressive piece of hardware for sure, but the price is just insane, and without a killer app that I simply must own, it's too high.

    Wii60 future indeed. Or, well, Wii for Mii (LOLOLOLLLLLLLLLL cry strangle gasp death)

    Not keen on the 360 yet either, though the xmas games might do it - some of the games I want for it are (bafflingly) stuck in Japan.
