    You decide for me.

    Right. Let me explain my situation.
    For about twelve months, I have constantly been saving money for vacations, with money supplemented by a Saturday job. Until October 2006, it was for Florida and Disney World, then up until April 2007 it was for skiing in New Hampshire. Well now I have nothing to save for.

    Since I got home from skiing, I've been thinking, well I'll just let my pile of money grow if I've got nothing to spend it on. There's no CDs I want at the minute, and I don't buy any DVDs any more because I rent them from Amazon. Whatever.
    But then today I got an idea.

    I own an Xbox, and before that a PSX. Yeah, you remember, the original PlayStation, none of this PSone nonsense. After that, I bought an Xbox, yet when the Xbox 360 was released it didn't appeal to me much. At that point I didn't really bother with video games. However, when Nintendo released the Wii, and it started getting rave reviews, I had to think again. It seemed that it could do so much more then just be a game player.

    I want MiceChat to help me decide. What do I go for?

    MICROSOFT XBOX 360
    NINTENDO WII
    or
    SONY PLAYSTATION 3

    There's a few factors I want to take into account when deciding. I don't really want to spend more then £300 - around $580. I want a console which has staying power - the PlayStation 2 had legendary staying power, still releasing excellent games today when the PlayStation 3 is getting started. I want a console which will help me in coming years - for example, it has Blu-ray or HD-DVD capabilities, however that isn't so much a big deal.

    Maybe owners of these consoles can put their opinions across?

    invest the money in corn commodities....
    Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."

    I don't play video games so can't help you there.

    As for myself.. I'd be looking into some other gadget like a new video camera, cell phone, TV or a laptop. I just like gadgets.

    Re: You decide for me.

    So if you have about $580 saved already, you save a little more, and you can almost buy both the XBox 360, and the Wii. I personally don't care for XBox, so I say go for the Wii, and spend the extra money on games, and accessories.
