Re: Anyone getting the Nintendo Wii?

Lucky guy. :supz:

I'm stoked about Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Kart (with WiiWheel!) The WiiZapper could be pretty cool too, so long as enough games support it :P Although Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles is enough to justify the purchase :snakeman:

Re: Loud DVD drive

There was a batch of 360's that had a different drive in them and they were complaints about the noise they made. Not sure if there is anything you can do about it though. Dan Yep, what he said. Nothing to worry about. ;) You may be able to exchange the console for a different version, but I'm not ...

Re: Should I get a PSP?

I like my PSP, but as a music player, it's just too big to be practical while exercising (which is where I would primarily use the music feature). Movies are great, but I must admit my eyes get tired after watching on the smaller screen :? UMD format sucks, but it's all we've got. UMD prices have pl...

Re: PC Vs. Console

Where's the "All of the Above" option? Comparing PC to Consoles is an endless debate. Consoles and PC's cater to different markets... plug-n-play VS custom specs. In general, PC's rule with FPS/RTS/MMO, while console's have the racing/platforming/sports markets. It all depends on the games you want ...

Re: XBOX360 - 3 year warranty to cost billions

That is a HUGE step for M$. Way to give back to your consumers ;) :supz: I have heard about tons of "Red Rings of Death" for no apparent reason... At least this new policy will cover every 360 since launch. Hopefully there isn't some sort of cheesy loophole for M$ to deny most of the claims. :?

Re: PS3 - $100 price drop? CONFIRMED and new 80GB coming too

60GB PS3 price drop is to clear out remaining 60GB models... once that stock runs out, only the more expensive 80GB will remain on the retail shelf. This model will use software emulation, rather then the E-motion chip to play the older PS/PS2 games. $100 is all that Sony will drop, so as to not be ...

My best advice to any e-bay newbie is to do your research before you decide to place your bid! Research the seller by looking at their history and read a few pages of comments to get a feel for the reputation of the seller... Location is important as well... I personally stay away from any seller th...

Whatever you do, DO NOT CHEAP OUT and buy a no-name PSU... The PSU is one component that most people seem to take for granted and purchase a whatever PSU, which would be a huge mistake... a bad PSU could potentially cause much damage to any of your other components that would draw power from said PS...

Lost is great, although this season has definitely had its ups and downs... such a huge delay between airing new episodes definitely hurt it as well... but this season's story to expand upon the Others was too long and overdrawn... besides, in the end, I just wanted the main story to get back to the...
