    Yeah well i really wanted a Wii and i've been waiting for 2 weeks, and then yesterday i talked to my game store manager friend and he told me that he didn't know when he'd be getting them in, he said it could be another 2 weeks.
    So i just couldn't hold out any more so i picked up a 360 Pro bundle which came with Marvel Ultimate Alliance & Forza 2, then i bought Call of Duty 4.
    I just hope that this won't be the conclusion of most people this holiday, that they just get tired of searching and waiting so they consider the other alternatives...because i really wanted a Wii but i couldn't wait another 2 weeks.

    i dont think so. a lot of people want it for their kids and swinging a wiimote is a hell of a lot easier than using a xbox controller. you should get nhl 08 if you like hockey. if the price drops on the pro bundle i might get a 360 just for that game.

    Hahahahahahh 2 weeks... You make me laugh. Some of my friends have been on the search for 6 months.

    Let me guess, you're not willing to camp?

    Oh well, 360's a good console, and Forza 2 is awesome. (I'm a bit biased though).

    I don't think TOO many people are quite as impatient as you.

    i certainly prefer the Wii to the xbox, i just got my brother one from fastwii.com which took a week but they seem reliable. Guess you have to pay over the odds at the moment to make the xmas rush.

    Made a good choice. A wii goes side by with a 360 perfect.

    1. Bey blades were in fact, never cool.
    2. I declare toomstone the most fanboy of wii fanboys on this forum.
    3. Why does everyone make such a big deal out of racing games? it's racing

    If you can set yourself up with good pedals and a wheel, forza 2's simulation is one of, if not the best.

    No offence, but if you couldnt wait 2-4 weeks for a wii, then you obviously didnt want one that much. I and many others waited months and months from the first news of the Revolution to the launch day. Some of those people are still trying to get their hands on one.

    beyblades were little tops, you put them on a grooved string like thing, held the base, pulled the string out, and the would spin for a very long time, useally people would put them in a round area and have them fight, the first one to stop spinning lost. you could get a whole bunch of them with different parts and whatnot, just like tops on crack. LET EM' RIP!

    ON TOPIC: its all good if you got tired of waiting, i think you made a mistake, but i cant tell you youre an idiot, but i hope youre happy with the 360.....HAAH.

    Hmmm

    I recently played my cousins 360, and I liked it. Most of my family has 360's and they all use it to play together.

    I bought the Console in September, and still have the box. If I were to trade for an Xbox 360... what could I get?

    I got a Nintendo Wii (of course) with everything that comes in the box
    An extra Wiimote and Nunchuck
    2 Classic Controllers
    Mario Galaxy
    Metal of Honor: Hero's 2
    Guitar Hero 3 and Guitar
    and a few more games that I can't think of right now (all $50 games)

    I like the system, but I think I would be better suited on the 360.

    Exactly a great percentage of people who bought a wii have another console as well. Its just like i said while there are ps3s and xboxs being shipped to stores every week, there arent enough wiis being shipped. only fanatics sit and camp outside a store just to get a console.(realy think how stupid that is )Then just cause you camped doesn't mean you will get one either. Yea he said he didnt want to wait two weeks, but lets just think of how long he may have waited before, and then if he waited it wasn't garanteed that he was gonna get it then either. so he went with the logical choice that most gamers with a brain would make get the next best thing and save for a wii later when they get better shipments.
