    Ok, I started this on the 360 forums I frequent and it went over wel. Anyway, what is the budget you are giving yourself for the launch of the Wii?

    I am doing $500 USD for release day plus I already have a 2 GIG SD and will be buying another before the Wii even releases. I CAN'T WAIT!

    Well, I think I'm only going to buy the Wii and Zelda (possibly memory card if I'm forced to do that if Wii dosen't save games) My sister is buying me a game for my Christmas+Birthday gift, but I said she can pick out the game with my approval of course. So I will get a game whenever. Man I just hope the Wii can save a few games at least on it. Man All_Out your rich..

    My Wii budget is sort of up in the air right now. I've got a little over $300 in the bank from my summer job and some extra from my birthday and weekly yard work, but my mom wants me to actually save my money for once.

    The truth is, I don't know if I can justify a new console. I haven't played a videogame in probably a month and during the summer, I hardly played at all. Maybe it's because I'm on here too much, talking about videogames instead of playing them.

    If I do end up getting Wii on it's release, I'll get Zelda, Red Steel, and Far Cry (if it's still a launch title). I really want atleast three games so I don't get bored or fed up with one or two. I also really want to get an extra wiimote/nunchuk, which will run like $60+tax=$70! I think Nintendo needs to lower the price of that; rediculous IMO.

    I think I just need to quit spending sooo much time online and more time gaming....but right at the moment, I'm feeling lazy.:D

    Yeah. Yeah, you're right, All Out!

    I'll finish up the Xbox games I have yet to finish (Ninja Gaiden and Oddworld: Munch's Oddsyee), get a few of the PS2 games I really wanted and haven't been able to get until now (like Rez, Ico, Shadow of the Colossos, and OMG Katamari Damacy) and then when Wii comes out I'll get one of those games I want and rent the rest with gamefly until I have some more cash.

    Thanks for the push.:D

So i will get Zelda with my own money and my sister will buy me Red Steel and ill probably buy Opera ont the same day.

    however much money I can have saved in cash by then. I was going to pre-order and pay it all off at EB's so I could just go pick it up on release day (like I did with the DS lite), but I call BS on their pre-order trade-in deal. So, I may be either waiting or ordering somewhere else.

    Well, I allready have a sizable SD Card I use for my Phone, so that won't be a problem.

    I'll be wanting to snatch a up a game with the Wii, and another Controller so although I don't really have a budget -- I'll say I'll probably end up spending around $350. Give or take.

    I usually only get about £90-100 of my parents and my winter job i usually do (not santa claus!) looks to be down the drain. (and i just spent £25 on karting as well!)

    I need money!

    I should have $1000 on launch day but I may only get a Wii, since I'm supposed to get a free game of my choice with the Toys'R'Us pre-order, so I'll get Zelda. With the money I have left I might get another game or two, not sure, or I'll just get something else, heheh.

    Are you sure ToysRUs is doing that? If so, I am going to pre-order just to get a free game.

    Im about $470 down after the pre-order, but havent decided whether to pick up a second Wiimote and attachment.

    I'll probably just play Red Steel and Zelda to death, then see how the other titles are doing review wise :)

    Probably looking at ~$500 all in all.
