I'm planning on picking up a 360 come July, as long as this overtime trend at work keeps up like it has been.  Smiley  6 day weeks for a month straight are good for the paycheck. 

PS3 - I'd like to get it, but I'm going to wait until the price point isn't in control of some crack-whore.  600 bucks for a console?  I'd rather upgrade my PC.

Wii - My god, the jokes just make themselves.  Who named this thing, Willy Wonka?  Cheap though, and if I like how Nintendo handles the retrogaming aspect I might pick it up.  Going to wait and see exactly how they plan on suporting their old back-catalog, what they really offer, and how much they want to charge for it.  Seeing 8-bit NES games for $20 on DS cartridges dosen't inspire confidence.

Probably not; arrogance has felled many a powerful man (or corporation).

Latest news on the Wii retrogaming seems to indicate that it will not only be able to play the Nintendo back catalog, but also titles from the Genesis and TurboGrafx 16. Add that to how sweet the new Smash Bros. is looking, and how comparitively low that price tag is compared to everyone else, and this machine is really starting to look like a must-buy for me.

They should license the Amiga. And the MSX. (and MSX2) And the Atari ST. (even just for Deuteros - The Next Millennium) and so on... But TurboGrafx 16 support is incredible, and I hope it's true.

Maybe I'll buy it on release, or after the first price drop, which is something I have NEVER done. I only own a Genesis and a Dreamcast, and now that the new systems are starting to come out, I've JUST started thinking about buying a PS2.

Oh, and about the PS3... RIIIIIIIDGE RACER!

I'll probably get a Wii soon after it comes out, but I won't be getting a PS3 for probably a long time... after a price drop or two... or three... or four. You get the point.
