    I just want to quote you here to establish the theme of this entire little thread you've created, i.e., The Thread Where C DUB YA Desperately and Repeatedly Tries to Justify His Purchase of a PS3 / Tries to Convince Others to Buy One.
    First off...

    why in the hell are you calling me a fucking retard over a gaming thread? Lighten up my friend. This is just a thread for gaming. If anyone is sounding like they need to justify anything, it's you. Made abundantly clear by your high school flavored anger issues.

    I don't need to justify any purchase, maybe my new car - that one is still going over like a lead balloon with the wife, but not any damn gaming system. I just like talking games, that's all.

    I own all 3 systems, I have more software for my 360, more 360 controllers, I have Xbox Live, and upgraded to a 360 Elite - if I'm financial invested in anyone it's Microsoft. If this thread bashed the 360 - I'd be thje first to speak up. I love my 360, love it. I love my PS3, and Wii is fun too, I'm just trying to point out there's room for all 3 in this so called hardware war going on.

    Oh yeah - you are an assface

    Same thing happens when a pub like... Entertainment Weekly bashes a movie by a Studio and said studio has ad space near or on the page of the review, happens all the time.

    The guy just doesn't like Mario games, plain and simple, he's dumb to that point, but I agree with him about Zelda.

    The Wii bashing is completley unwarranted though - because Nintendo has always said - their machine isn't about graphics.

    the point is you are putting the ps3 up on a pedastol trying to make it some big pussaliya. and as everyone knows 360>wiis3

    the wii shouldnt even be allowed in this thread, biggest waste of money, its just a gimmick thats only catching on cause its different, and because of that different people are buying it

    ill admit i had fun with mine playing wii sports with friends, but after a while it was just boring

    No - they're all up on pedistals in my book. The 360 pedastal is the tallest.

    I am defending what people are quick to bash. I'm also asking why not all 3? Why can't all 3 systems be really great?

    Again timing is maybe tilting my enthusiasm for PS3, I seriously am quite excited about Uncharted: Drake Fortune - if it was on 360, I'd be EQUALLY excited. Plus I've been playinng alot of Ratchet and Clank, even more so than Halo 3 recently.

    I went on and on for days about BIOSHOCK, it's still my fave of the year by the way, way better than anything on PS3 or Wii - how do you like that statement?

    i recently sold my 360 cause i was broke, and it was mid summer when i was making a lot of money, so i planned on buying one right before halo 3, but i got in debt so i couldnt

    so im gonna buy a broken one off ebay and take it to my friend at gamestop, have him switch it out with a new one and send back the defective cause its free for them

    another guy i knew worked at fedex and would always steal stuff, he had 4 ps3s before they came out, but he had to give 2 to another guy at his work who helped him take em, had to give another to a guy who played look out, and sold the last one for like 450 cause the guy is an idiot, we were shitting balls though when he first got them

    Why is it that nobody has mentioned the ring of death? My friend has gone through 2 xbox 360's in 6 months because of the red ring of death. Nobody mentions the fact that your 360 could crash and burn at any moment and you will be left with nothing until it gets repaired (4-6 weeks).

    I don't dare mention it, cuz adamnikyo might call me a fucking retard again...

    you're right though, new systems have supposedly fixed the problem, but I also know there have been adjustments to MS warranty since then as well.

    HD-DVD players for $99!!! So cool!!!111!!

    Or not...

    How in the world does Toshiba think it's ever going to make any money from the HD-DVD format? I mean, seriously.

    You may have heard by now that Toshiba has made pre-Black Friday arrangements with Wal-Mart to effectively dump its HD-A2 HD-DVD player starting this Friday (this weekend only) for just $98.87. You may also have heard that Best Buy has followed suit. Supplies are limited, of course, and the offer is apparently not valid in some parts of the country that have state anti-dumping laws.

    Wikipedia defines dumping as "the act of a manufacturer in one country exporting a product to another country at a price which is either below the price it charges in its home market or is below its costs of production." Toshiba's move isn't really anti-competitive, because there are no U.S. manufacturers making HD-DVD players. But it's that "below its costs of production" part that applies in this case. The HD-A2 arrived in the States with an original MSRP of $499.99. Now, Toshiba is letting it go for just $99. There's no way the player cost less than $100 to manufacturer. Just. No. Way.

    You might wonder: How can Toshiba possibly have enough HD-A2s left to sell at just $99 at large, nationwide retailers? Simple. It's because they didn't sell originally, so plenty of stores still have them sitting on shelves, gathering dust. Toshiba is eager to clear them all out at this point, and Wal-Mart and Best Buy are happy to help.

    Clearly, the HD-DVD camp understands that low price is really the only card they have left to play in this format war. Porn hasn't won the war for them as predicted, nor have online bells and whistles, or combo discs/players. The obvious question would be: Why in the world would any other hardware manufacturer want to join Toshiba's foolhardy strategy of driving player prices down to next to nothing? It's no accident that not a single other major manufacturer has released a stand-alone HD-DVD player (and no, the Venturer doesn't count). Given how dramatically Toshiba has slashed prices on HD-DVD players over the last year, you have to wonder how long they can keep losing money.

    Forget for a moment that the HD-A2 isn't capable of delivering full 1080p video - that doesn't matter. Why? Because anyone who is so price sensitive that they wait until a high-def player price hits $99 to buy one isn't likely to have an HDTV set yet. Being super bargain shoppers, they aren't likely to want to pay $30 for an HD-DVD movie either. I'd bet many of the people who jump on this sale will either be using them primarily as upconverting DVD players, or they're already diehard HD-DVD supporters and are buying them as second players. For those regular consumers who take the bait, I wonder how they'll feel when they realize they can't play those big Disney titles in the "blu" boxes due next week.
