This is only because they know the people listing the auctions don't have the items in-hand and a preorder is no guarantee that they ever will. I don't see why they'd remove PS3s of sellers who actually have them in their possession.

Brian - Are you picking up 12 this week?

In terms of hardware, the wii is just a refresh of the gamecube. It doesn't offer the big performance jump of xbox->xbox360 or ps2->ps3. I hope you guys aren't expecting a much more powerful machine or anything. The controller is the biggest difference.

I might... I heard it was a disappointment.

Yea, the point is that we (or I) really don't give two shits about hardware in a console. I don't have any desire to see more realistic sweat zones on football players' faces, or waving grass in the wind, and what not. I'd rather save the $350 and buy the game console with Mario, Zelda, etc.

Picking up my S.E. copy of FFXII today after work. Dissapointment? I uh... think not. Maybe if you hate the very best single player RPG that money can buy...

I wasn't being critical as I'm not a fanboy of either camp. I was just saying...

It could easily be argued that the new controller is far more of a generation jump than any graphical update.

Brian - Disappointment with FF12? It got four 10s from Famitsu. Currently has a press average of 9.8 on Gamestats.

Looks like I've been hearing the wrong press. I guess i'll pick it up then. Then I will have TWO games for my Ps2, Tekken 5 and FF12!!

The openening movie is fantastic, the first two or three hours are somewhat slow, but the story picks up quite nicely from there.

The only game I still play is the Counterstrike mod for Half Life online. And that's only so I can spray obscene images all over the walls and irritate other people on the server.
