    I've been seeing and hearing a lot of people not digging what Sony's been doing with this Geohotz business. Me personally I think they are going to far and frankly I don't like the way they handle things and I wouldn't support them at this point which means I probably won't be getting a NGP for that reason.

    Now so I won't get comments saying so, I'm not trying to boycott their products...I just don't support their actions therefore I wouldn't buy their products.

    I was just wondering if anyone felt the same way.

    Well, now that I've seen that crap (the Sony lawsuits and such), I'll probably get a NGP but not buy any games. I should still be able to use it without games anyhow.

    Yeah once this dies down or if Sony decides to handle this better I may get a second hand one cause honestly I'd like to own one

    Kinda of topic - Has Sony always been like this?

    Depends on the games. If there's enough that I'm interested in, then sure, I'll pick one up at some point.

    I'd rather not get into the Sony lawsuit nonsense, but if I had to say anything, it'll just be that I don't care. I play games because they're fun; I don't need politics and heroism getting in the way of that.

    the NGP looks like a great console . although i am despising Sony right now , i wouldn't mind buying the console . maybe a few games , but i will wait for the lineup of games first . so far , no eye catching games for myself . i am curious to see if there will be any Final Fantasy games or RPG games in general that will be developed for it . maybe even a Tales of game too ...

    None of Sony's recent legal actions will have any effect on my decision to purchase the NGP or not, so I opted not to vote.

    Are....Are you serious?

    I got a $500 GameStop gift card for free, why not? I'll preorder a 3DS and use the rest on a NGP.

    Why not just buy/save money on games for the 3DS?

    I'll probably buy one if it gets hack and just play it for offline mode. It seems to be cheaper then the 3DS anyway but the lawsuit thing kinda puts me off Sony Products especially when they're coming down hard on piracy...

    Waiting for hacks... and I'll probably have some more money by the time the good games come out. Launch games seem to suck atm.

    Hacks are not absolute, even if it happens it may not be for a long time. You can a least buy games 'till then.

    Well I don't really care what sony is doing to the hackers, because their systems are great. And I wanted to buy an android smartphone for a while and this ngp looks quite good to me.

    But just watch, another Kingdom Hearts game is going to come out for the NGP and then I'll miss out if I don't have one.

    Yeah they most definitely pull that dick move in my opinion....There is no way that powerhouse can be cheaper than the 3DS....Ill forget everything I've just said in this thread and buy on if it is but I'm also glad you fixed your post before I did lol

    Yeh no worries, NGP for 350 bucks in AUS.
    The 3DS is $350 here, so the NGP will naturally be around $500+
