    I have a total of $60 now, and I can't decide between Okami Wii and a Creative Zen 2GB. I've wanted something besides my DS that can play videos for a long while now (the screen is kinda small for anime subs), but I played the PS2 version of Okami forever ago at a friends house and completely loved it, but he moved away like a month later, so now I can't just borrow the PS2 version. Post away.

    I'm going to go out on a branch here and tell you to mod your Wii.

    $30 bucks for the Wiikey. Shouldn't cost too much for the installation, if ya know where to go (or can do it yourself).

    But, if I were to choose it'd definitely be the MP3 player.
    You play a gamn and beat it.
    K. This is old now.
    You listen to an MP3 player - it never gets old (that is, if you update your music every once in a while, of course).

    viva la zen

    Zen. If Linkiboy was here, he'd go promote that mp3 player he has.

    Same reason as JPH. You'll be using the Zen longer.

    I'd have to go with the Zen as well. Not only does it last longer, but the memory is also expandable, so even with a 2GB Zen you can store your video collection.

    Go with an MP3 player (basically for my love of music) thats why I bought a flashcard because I never really buy games. Only music.

    After just thinking about it for a while, my mom said she'd get me another monitor if it was $100 or less. I can throw in $50 to that $100 and still have enough to get Okami soon. I would need $20 more to get Okami after that and I need to save $16 for the Zen anyway. And I've wanted a second monitor for almost a year now. Considering these changes, is the Zen still a better option?

    Get a Zen. Better Soundquality than Ipods and not so overpriced

    Get a Zen, because it's not an iPod. [​IMG]

    And... I think you should really buy the PS2 version of Okami. Seriously. I've heard some rumors that the Wii version combat is a little shaky, but it's by no means -that- flawed in the PS2 version. The only real thing that's flawed is that you can't make complex strokes using the PS2 analog controller. But with the Wii, it's all fine and cool, but then again... it's slightly more expensive and I just get the feeling it would feel slightly awkward. But then again, it's only my intuition speaking; don't listen to me for that.

    Otherwise! Buy a modchip, and then your Wii game problems are solved. [​IMG]

    The new Zen is the worst mp3 player Creative has released in a long while.

    I'd go with a Sansa; or get a last-gen Vision:M.

    Well, against everyones opinion lol, I've decided to go with the monitor. But after looking at the Sansas, that's definately the next thing I'm buying. BTW, would anyone happen to know if the Sansa supports MicroSDHC, and the resolution of the screen on the e250?

    Resolution is 176 by 220.

    There are two version of the e200 series players. v2 supports MicroSDHC, but does not support the custom Rockbox firmware. v1 is the only version that supports the Rockbox firmware, but doesn't support MicroSDHC.

    I was thinking of getting a Zen too, just because I want drag and drop. I have a Zune, and it is a nice player with a great interface, but I hate the computer software.

    Are the Sansa's drag and drop too?

    No drivers required either.

    That's awesome. And thanks for replying so quickly, lol.

    Is 8gb really the highest capacity(I think I'm reading it wrong though)? That's kind of low for the price. What is a good Zen that you would recommed Urza? Something in 20gb-30gb would be really nice.

    If you want video, then the Zen Vision:M is really your only option as far as Zen are concerned. 30GB model is about 150USD new.

    If you just want music, then I highly recommend the Zen Sleek. You can pick up a 20GB model for as low as 40USD on eBay (15-20USD more for the color model).
