    OK fellows [​IMG]
    I'm a muslim, and as Muslims every Eid, the youngest generation in a family receives a "Eidiyya" (not an English word, tried to type it in the most suitable way)
    Eidiyya's are basically a huge load of cash the uncles, parents, grandparents give to all their grandkids, nephews/nieces/kids whatever.
    I've gotten approx $300 Last eid and have a few savings from before. Next Eid is real soon and I wanna buy 2 big things with the money from my savings + both eids.
    Okay I can buy 2 out of the three following things.
    -Sony HandyCam (Haven't decided exactly which one but it's one of the tiny new HD ones cause my old non HD HandyCam's screen stopped working plus the new HD ones have wireless compatibility with my HD Sony Bravia)
    -Nintendo 3DS (when it comes out. I know most of you will pick this [​IMG] )
    -A bundle of Kinect + Xbox Slim (Guys I know most of you hate Kinect but I am a REALLY big fan of motion games and I look forward to get an xbox to join my CoD friends)

    Vote vote vote! [​IMG]

    I'll buy the top 2 with most votes.

    Even though Kinect is not as good when compare to PS3 Move or Wii, Xbox 360 still has some game you can play with.

    I'm with Hells Malice on this one. Get a 360, but if you do like the look of Kinect at least wait until it has some games worth mentioning. All it'll have for a while are casual-themed minigame compilations a la Wii Sports/Party/Anything. Personally I think Kinect has some potential but it's not gonna show for some considerable time. Same goes for Move.

    The 3DS on the other hand looks supremely badass and has Ocarina of Time and Lylat Wars in your pocket, what more could you ask for? Oh, how about Metal Gear, Resident Evil, Kid Ikarus, Dead Or Alive, Mario Kart and the newly announced Professor Layton VS Ace Attourney? The 3DS is gonna be THE SHIT. I'm already saving for mine.

    Xbox 360 and 3DS sounds like a sweet bundle.

    On another note, I was brought up as a muslim but got fuck all at Eid.

    Maybe I should!
    Oh sorta off-topic: Welcome back Infinite Zero! (I think you were gone for a while am I right?)

    Anyways, I should've known, Xbox and 3DS are winning.
    Only 4 votes for HandyCam. =/
    Damn...
    Btw if you guys don't know what HandyCam is (maybe that's why you didn't vote for it) it's a really good Video camera from Sony. I intend to buy and HD one that connects wirelessly to my beautiful Sony Bravia

    You can buy a PS3 with that money. Much better investment unless you like Spehs mareens in spehs and a few so-so games.


    If not that, go for the handycam.

    Is it just me or do I smell something. [​IMG]
    Though I would recommend 360 and 3ds, really a good bundle plus most games are in multi-platform so console-exclusive games are not really that many.

    I voted for 3DS and Xbox360. Also how many other holidays are like this in Islam? Sounds like Eid beats the shit out of Christmas. I may have to convert. LoL

    Okay, 3ds: get.

    Now, as far as all the new super HD consoles like the X360, PS3, Wii, etc. It all depends on if you really NEED a home console right now.

    If you've already got a home console and you need the camera badly, go for the camera.

    If you've already got the camera and need the home console badly, go for it.

    I won't be starting any console wars here, so if you pick the home console, get whichever one you want most. They are ALL good consoles with pros and cons.

    I've got a Wii, but no other awesome home console. I have a PS2, but like they're old.
    And I'm not enjoying the Wii that much cause I don't pirate Wii games, I buy them.
    And when I wanna buy a game, I usually spend the money on DS games instead.
    So yeah, I have like 2-3 good Wii games. And one crappy money-wasting shovelware.
    I mainly want the Xbox bundle to play CoD with my friends, and to enjoy Kinect [​IMG]
    I do want the Camera, but not for any reason. I don't even know why I want it, I just really do.
    I mentioned in the first post on this thread that I have a handycam (non-HD) and that the screen sort of broke.
    So all I have left is one of those tiny digital cameras which I HATE.
    So yeah this puts me back to the beginning, don't know what to pick.
    And you added 1 to 3DS.

    EDIT: WOW I'm shocked to see the Xbox 15 and HandyCam 14.
    So there is love for HandyCam after all. [​IMG]

    Ahaha dude for Eid I get nothing! I get friends who get $1000 for Eid, makes me jealous!
    Anyway you should get a 3DS it looks really great and that's the next thing on my wishlist. Also you said you wanted a skateboard? You should get one later on, if you're a beginner you could just get a $100 one.

    You get stuff during Bukhra eid? You lucky bastard.

    I'd reccomend getting the 360 now, and start saving up for the 3DS with your left over money.

    Lol what's "Bukhra" ? [​IMG]
    Yeah that was my initial plan as well.
    Then my HandyCam broke, so I made this thread.
    OK +1 Xbox and +1 3DS

    Oh, yeah we call it Adha or something like that. [​IMG]

    WOW, Xbox and HandyCam still tied.

    Damn! Picking will be hard.

    By the way guys since 3DS is coming out months later, I'm getting one of the other 2, (Xbox or HandyCam) this week.

    I can't believe they're tied [​IMG]

    I think a lot like the forum lol [​IMG]

    We both can't choose. Cam or Xbox?
