Just got a Playstation 3 for Christmas. So I was wondering what everyone else here has. I only have one game(NHL 08). But Im looking to get Call of Duty 4 soon. Im also thinking about NBA Live 08. So what system/s do you own? And are you happy with it?

PlayStation2. Only a few games for it.....Grand Theft Auto San Andreas/Vice City/III, Resident Evil 4/Code Veronica X/Outbreak, Guitar Hero/Guitar Hero 80s, and soon to be NHL 08 in all likelihood, but I'm more than happy with it.

Do you really want to get good at it?

I'll ask again...

Do you REALLY want to get good at it?

To do that requires a lot of practice and a lot of resisting to break the guitar on your TV or nightstand or any other apparatus in your room. I suck at the game so that's out of the question, but I often engaging in the resisting activity.

The resisting activity and experiencing me blowin gaskets can get quite entertaining though, almost as entertaining as the game.

if you want to get it do what my parents did for us for Christmas. Go to a store like Gamestop (there is one in GH) and buy it used. they have a ton of stuff and it is way less than in stores. they got the game for like $30 and the guitar for like $15 or something like that. It beats paying the store prices and it works fine, they dont sell you crap and they give you 15 days to try it out and return it if it is messed up.

org. xbox and Wii. Happy with both. Like downloading games for the Wii from the older nintendo/sega/turbographix16 systems.

I might get a 360 once the price drops again, but until then it's 2K7 until the Wii gets a NHL game.
I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

I own a 360, and it is AWESOME. It has the best games, Mass Effect, Halo 3, Gears of War. Call of Duty 4 is the best FPS I've ever played, but you can get that for PS3 also. Mass Effect is an awesome 3rd person shooter/real-time RPG game that is really good. It's exclusive to the 360, and the story is just phenomenal. 360 has the best games...hands down.

I have the following systems.
Nintendo: NES, SNES, N64, Wii, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance SP
Sony: PS1, PS2
Sega: Dreamcast
The list would be longer but there are systems I did not acquire as a youth because one of my brothers had them, including the Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, and Sega Game Gear.

xbox, ps2 and wii.
PS2 is for my hockey games until wii comes out with a hockey game. Next system will probably be a PS3 since you can play blu rays on them.

All those are exclusives. Patience is a virtue. I really wish Rockstar / Grand Theft Auto would have remained a PS3 exclusive. Metal Gear Solid is going to be insane as will God of War.

I like the 360 but I think the PS3 is better and I like it more so that's what I have. Also have NES, SNES, PSone, PS2, Game Gear (yes), Game Boy (original)

**Edit** I just got 300 on Blu-Ray and watched it on my dads 56'' wide-screen. AMAZING. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G

Love my 360 and have not touched my Wii since Zelda. But when i get the internet hookup for the Wii it will be all Blades of Steel and Punch out for me! lol

Playing Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3 on Xbox live owns my soul right now.

Never been a playstation person cause i always went with nintendo. Have an Nes, Snes, N64. When i heard the Gamecube was gonna suck i went with the original Xbox instead of a Ps2 cause it was closest to a PC as i had started turning into a PC gamer around the N64 days.

I think it's kind of funny cause the ps1 and ps2 always had more games and good games and thats what they were known for but there graphics were horrible in comparision to the N64 and Xbox. But when they rushed the Ps3 out it supposely has the best graphics now even though it dosent seem like it but that may be because most of there games are 360 ports. But now the Ps3 has not a lot of good games to choose from... lol but maybe in due time eh? In the meantime I'm enjoying 360 gaming!


Thank you Teeman!

Got a 360 for Christmas! No hockey yet, but I did get Halo 3 (you have to) and I'm getting Assassin's Creed pretty soon. Looks real pretty.

I went to see family, and they have a wii... gotta say, you can even play TENNIS on that thing for hours. It doesn't get funn-er than that.

PS2 here....but have been considering an upgrade for a long while. Ive just been exclusively buying PC games the past year, I havent bought anything for PS2 since NHL2k7. But i was really disappointed to hear that Madden and NHL 08 for the PC are just rehashed versions of the year before, so eventually i'll be forced into getting a PS3. I dont know whats supposed to be better between that and the 360 though, i remember reading that the PS3 was not doing very well sales wise....so thats a little bit scary. Is the system not living up to the hype??? The only reason i'd want PS3 over the 360 is so i can still play some of my PS2 games. (without having to unhook everything). I know its cheesy but im also a big Singstar fan, and thats exclusive to Sony. But if the 360 is supposed to be better, than thats something i'd have to seriously think about. Even though i have the money right now to be able to buy the PS3, i just cant pull the trigger. I just dont feel like theres enough games that excite me right now...i know theres a UFC game coming next year, but thats a long ways away.
