    Alright, I've been looking at the confimed games for the Wii this year and I've started to think that i want quite a bit of these. So, I'm going to try to figure out how much this will cost me.

    This is a place where you can list every game, console, accessory, that you plan on buying from now until Dec. 31, 2007.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wii_games Here's a list of Wii games (Note: Not completely reliable)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360_games 360 games

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ps3_games Ps3 Games

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psp_games Psp Games

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DS_Games DS games

    Remember to include tax and what not. Where i live, its 7%. Plus i rounded.

    Here's my list(or the list i hope for):

    Wii:
    Pokemon Battle Revolution - $54
    Super Mario Strikers - $54
    Battalion Wars - $54
    No More Heroes - $54
    SSBB - $54
    MP3 - $54
    Super Mario Galaxy - $54
    Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games - $54
    1 of these:
    Wii Health Pack, Wii music, The Bigs - $54
    I'll throw in $43 for VC.

    360
    Madden 08 - $65
    Halo 3 - $65 (ill probably just get the "regular" version)
    GTA 4 - $65
    Crackdown? - $65

    DS
    Zelda: Phantom Hourglass - $38
    Nothing else yet, but i bet I'll buy something. Ill throw in one more - $38

    Now, let's add them up.
    Wii: $486!! Oh, wow. That's alot.
    360:$260. Thats ok i guess.
    Ds: $76. That looks fine.
    VC: $43

    $835!! Better start saving up....

    Luckily I have a rich little brother...:ihih:
    I hope other people's are higher than that...:crazy:

    I'm going to get the Zelda Collector's Disc (ebay) for gamecube, and MP3. I'll probably get Super Mario 64 and possibly a couple of NES games off the VC.

    25$ + 54$ + 20$ = 99$.

    I'm selling off a few titles on Ebay right now to help fund those buys: Dragon Ball Z (Wii), Paper Mario (GC) and Metroid Prime (GC).

    I have around £300 set up for future releases but that money is going to be used to cover all the games that I want for PS2 and the Wii. I can always ask my parents for more if thats not enough.

    Well I'm not spending that much money. Mostly on my new SNES. I'll ask for some of the SNES games for my birthday which is coming in a few months:)

    Super Mario World
    Super Mario World 2
    Earthbound
    Super Mrio RPG
    Zelda: A Link to the Past

    maybe some other ones. At maybe $20 a game? Not sure.

    About $100.

    Wii games I want:
    Super Mario Galaxy
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    Super Paper Mario

    I still have some Best Buy gift cards, which I'll probably use on 1 of the games and ask for the other 2 for Christmas:thumbsup:
