Don't get me wrong, I'm a Nintndo fan, but there's no way I'm going to ask people if they want to play with my wee, as Erisar said. I reckon they've made life a lot harder for themself. The games are going to have to be even better now.
Personally, I'm getting more and more tempted by the Xbox 360, but I will of course wait to see more of the Revolution before deciding.
Get both! 360 so far has been way worth it to me.

Yeah, I was thinking that, but I'm not sure I want to buy two consoles and then games for both. It would cost a lot and I don't play games a great deal anyway. But as I said, I'll wait and see before I make my mind up :)

See this is why computers are the way to game...one computer, as many games as you want. You dont need to worry about consol names, buying two sets of each game or the maker stopping production on games because the next consol is comming out.

Just keep your computer updated with enough ram and a good video card and your set.

Because, the combined cost of ram and video cards to play the latest games are just a fraction of the cost of a game console...

Also, since you can play such fan favorites like Zelda, Metroid, Final Fantasy, or even Mario on a computer, buying a console is just absolutely senseless! Hahaha.

Since when did I say anything about a Bank Annuity?

Anyone who owns both a decent computer and game consoles will tell you, computer games and console games are for the most part different.

I'm still yet to see a RPG on par with those on SNES/PS1/PS2 for computer. It's all a load of FPS, tactics, and sim derivatives.

Yet to see an RPG for a computer? Have you even played Myst? Riven? Exile?
Thats just one series among many.

Morrowind, Tribunal, Bloodmoon etc.

FF8Jake` was saying that he hasn't seen one that compares to an RPG from the SNES. The SNES was all about story in games and not graphics which is what RPG's are about now.

Ah, I cant really comment on that system as the only game I ever played on it was Mortak Kombat.

Ive had NES, Genesis, Gameboy and N64 only.

I'm not that fussed on the name. Because I'll always refer to it as the Revolution or Nintendo. Despite having a N64 and GameCube. I call them all the same thing at one point.

Eventually it's just going to boil down to 'I'm gonna go play <insert game>' anways ;)

My boards were going to be the Revolution Lobby, but now it's the Wii Lobby.

It's not the same, is it?
