    I don't know if anyone knows how close the price of the wii is to the xbox 360 right now, but to even my surprise there's going to be another choice this christmas. As of right now the 360 is the same price as the wii the 360 just got a price drop, so now the real problem to decide which to get especially for me. Ok when the wii first came out everyone though it was over priced for what it is, and when they charged $50 extra for the wii a lot of people were not happy. I can see the argument about that money wise, and yeah it's like making you pay for a game that nobody really wanted to begin with. Im stuck since i got rid of my game cube a while back when i heard the wii could play gc disc's, and would rather the traditional controls over the wii's motion controller.

    If you want a 360, get that. If you want a Wii, get the Wii. Seriously, do you expect us to waste our time and advertise the products for you? Besides, you're not going to get an objective, non-biased response from friggin gbatemp. Laff.

    The 360 isn't worth for awhile even with a price drop, I might seriously think about getting one when they have finally revised the CPU. It all highly depends on wether "Blue Dragon" will be awesome or not though ^__^;;.

    Why do you people like you exist too bad i don't feel the same for you are you just on here to pester people or what, and places like this are made for chatting about things like the wii. I didn't say i was a 360 it's just part of the topic, and it's pretty sad when people can't even make a topic without others getting emotional over it.

    P.S $100 360 won't be happening maybe the wii soon though in a few years [​IMG]

    I'm confused. The 360 has been dropped to $250? Where's this info at? Is that the core system?

    Wonder what the chances of being able to get the 360 Core system on Thanksgiving for $100 at Amazon would be...do you have to wait until it hits Thanksgiving day and then hit order and hope 1000 people didn't beat you to the click?

    Ah to get a wii for free no that would be nice then there would be nothing to worry about, but really though just like game spot says it's good for some games while not as good for others. the real question would be zelda on the cube or on the wii [​IMG], but the cube has different controls with a really bad controller...sooo the wii would get the most sales i think.

    P.S You can tell good gaming is slowly dying when they start to charge for emulation [​IMG], and a few years ago they were saying it was illegal.

    GC control is PERFECT for Zelda.
    Emulation is illegal when you don´t have the rights to do it.

    Simple. Type in amazon.com into your browser and look to the right.

    Yes that is pretty much the way it will work.

    I don't think there is much chance of getting a system, but I'll be trying to get one. $100 isn't a bad deal at all (even if I don't really want a 360).

    Yeah i know zelda on gc has perfect controls im just worried about the wii version, because if it isn't as good then there wouldn't be any point in getting the wii right now since the gc costs next to nothing. I should know since i bought mine for $15 about 2 years ago (true story), but xboc 360 $100 come on now...is it reserve only or first come first serve?

    P.S I know nobody in here has much luv for microsoft, but hell how can you resist $100 damn i got that right here(i've decided tx) [​IMG].
