With the Wii and PS3 right around the corner, I'm wondering if any of my homebrew brothers and sisters are gamers.

Anyone standing out all night to pick up a Wii or PS3?

I have had most of the major systems, my latest is the PSP. I won't be in any rush to get teh Wii or the PS3. I'm finding games were much more enjoyable when they were simpler. I bought NHL 2006 for the PS2 last year and my head was spinnign with all of the controls. It wasn't even enjoyable, although very pretty.

My PSP keeps me entertained when I get the video game bug or need to kill time while traveling. Plus, that has so many other cool features (wireless internet, plays music and videos, stores pics, etc.) that I never get bored with it.

Surfing porn on my PSP...doesn't get any better than that!

That's the appeal of the Wii. Fewer buttons and an easy-to-use gyroscopic controller. I'll be heading to Harrisburg on Sunday morning to see if I can find one.

I have a PS2 and I would like to get a PS3 but there's no way I'm paying that much for it. I may get the Wii sooner and then the PS3 and Xbox360 later when the prices drop.

I have an X-box, and I don't even have time to play it. Only game I play is Halo 2, and that's usually just online with friends.

I have it, and I agree. Nothing beats the chainsaw!

I work for nvidia and I helped design the PS3, but I don't play many video games at all. Ironically, it is because my job keeps me too busy.

PS: You should all buy a PS3. In fact, buy two of them.

You work for nVidia? Wow! What is your title, if I may ask?

I'd but two PS3s if I could, because then I could re-sell them and make a ton of cash.
