    I absolutely can. Not. Believe. They are seriously calling it 'the Wii'
    So the next generation will be the Wii2?

    My advice to you all is DO NOT buy a PS3 to flip on eBay. They've been closing down PS3 auctions like crazy.

    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.

    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.

    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.
