Unless you intend on buying a second-hand one I'm sure you won't save more than £30 waiting less than a couple of years. If you really care about that, you're just tight.

There might not be brilliant launch titles but I don't see much point in waiting. So I'm going to get one as soon as possible. Hopefully launch, but that is for Argos to decide.

I meant that I'd buy Wii anew but games second-handed. In my case it is the simple matter of not having enough cash. I considered buying at launch when 360 came out but didn't, and after 6 months I saw these cool games that I had wanted to buy. All second-handed, all 60% the price. I felt very smart that day. That's not to say I wouldn't want to grasp a Wii on launch, though...

I'm buying mine from Argos, interest free until April. So that's not a concern.

I don't plan on buying a lot of games, but when I come to sell any I don't want I'll get more for them than you will. Swings and roundabouts.

The 360 Winter Line-Up-Me-Doo:

Gears

Sonic

Hawk 8

DOAX2

Viva Pinata

PSU

Wireless Headset

Gears - Definatly buy

Sonic - Did you play that demo, absolutly horrid!

Hawk 8 - Great if it wasn't for the controler, will be better on the PS3

DOAX2 - you're kidding right? Did you play the first one at all? for gods sake, just go buy some real porn instead

Viva Pinata - Not sure about this one yet

PSU - Good game RUINED by a horrible interface

Wireless Headset - Reports so far say that the Headset isn't working that well and has no bandwidth prioritys

So yeah... buy Gears, and possibly Viva if there is a decent enough community for it on this forum.

But I'll be getting zelda on the 8th dec, no doubt about that!

Sonic - Did you see the new gameplay vids? Absolutely awesome! + I'm Sonic mad

Hawk 8 - Will be better on 360 because it has online play plus I've never owned a PS1/2 so the PS controller handles like shit imo. I mean, shapes instead of letters on buttons? Ergh!

DOAX2 - I enjoy hentai, so nya!

Viva Pinata - According to IGN "The best game Rare have made since Microsoft bought them in 2002". I'm excited.

PSU - Somewhat, but the gameplay is still pure PSO...until they release more content online.

Wireless Headset - You can't walk to another room apparently, but its nice nonetheless.

I also ordered a VGA cable, so I can view things on my samsung in 1080p!. (and Enchanted Arms).

Well, the VGA cable and Enchanted Arms arrived this morning.

Now, as stated the reason for the VGA was to enable 1080p on Samsungs R7 range. I remember someone stating in the fall update topic that these sets can ONLY do 1080p if you have a VGA cable.

The highest setting available isn't working. After a quick browse some other forums are stating R7's can't do 1080p at all.

Is there any final confirmation on this? Or have I just wasted £17.99 :huh:

EDIT:The highest setting possible on VGA certainly looks ALOT worse then the component cable provided with the premium 360, also.

Listen, I'm a Sonic fan through and through, I've still got all the Sonic the Comics and assorted tat and all that, it's wicked. But from playing the demo, seeing Sega add a fucking hub level again, roping in every single Sonic character ever...seriously, remember when this was going to be Sonic returning to JUST Sonic? Go here and check the characters under the story section- Amy, Blaze, Red Robot fucker, they've bunged 'em all in. And you're saying it's ace based on vids made to make it look good? Sonic is ace, but if you buy this game you are a CHUMP.

EDIT: Fuck, forgot to say get a Wii in amongst all that. Get one.

You have issues 1-223? Aka all of em? Me be envious.

No, it's not from trailers. Search out youtube and theres quite a few new gameplay vids. At most it looks like Sonic Adventure 1 V.2. Similer level designs, even has a whale chase. And come on, Station Square wasn't the end of the world.

Side-charecters won't do much in-game. Its sonic, shadow and silver all the way. And only Silver requires new method of playing (which looks alot better then past ideas).

Sonic games in general, no matter how far from it's original concept never are dead terrible. Even Sonic Labryth has it's merits. And to be frank, I doubt your as big a fan as me or Sprite Machine (if he's still around).

It seems my true fanboyism is revealed. Sega!

...Let's let this thread die now.

EDIT:VGA seems 100% pointless, now proven at verious forums. Loving Enchanted Arms. Gears and Hawk arriving tomorow!

Actually whoever was playing them both said he 'didn't really want to talk about [Next Gen Sonic], and Rivals forces you to go fast rather than making you want to go fast, because you're always racing someone who knows the level better than you.' Or something like that.

Station Square not awful you say? 'Oh no I've run into the wall again and now I've picked up a key and oh dear I've run into another wall and another' would be a pretty accurate description of Station Square (maybe I'm just crap at it. But not likely.) And I read somewhere today that you play as the other characters in some sort of mini-games between levels. Wicked!

You (and Sprite apparently) obviously love Sonic very muchly, and...well, it's your fifty quid mate.

£40 from Amazon.

EDIT:And yes, but the way he was talking about Rivals was way more positive then for Next. Or at least imo. Station Square wasn't like that. And the sub-chars will indeed appear in mini-games but at least its not forced upon you, like knuckles sa1/2 stages.

This we can agree on. On other issues with the series', well we both have our different opinions. Yours is wrong, mind :)
