Of course. Mario and me are BFFs.

I don't have one yet, though. I will probably get it as a Christmas present.



Maybe I'll tell your mom what my ebay seller name is and I won't stick it to her for a wii.

btw, I heard that Mario thinks your lame, don't look at me, he's the one that said it.


My momma > you.

And Mario didn't say I was lame. He said I was a llama in a thick Italian accent.

are you sure Mario doesn't know your momma? you kinda look like him ya know


Anyway, I was against PS3 for cost purposes, but wii seems like a reasonable gift for Christmas. I hope you get one. And I hope i profit from it

Mario is my cousin. I'm Super_Cool. He is Super_Mario. Understand now?

With all the Wiis going around, I'm sure to get one. And don't worry, you will get a profit if you listen to the underpants gnomes.
Step 1: Get a Nintendo Wii.
Step 2: ?????
Step 3: Profit!

So it's boiled down to this- I can afford either a PS3 or both a 360 and a Wii. The PS3 clearly seems to me as though it's simply the best overall console out there, but all the same, I'll probably go for the other two instead. Just a wider range.

Well it turns out that I'm keeping a wii for josh and I, He just put in Zelda.

I'm not sure if I like the set up yet or not, I'm NOT happy with the sensor for the controller, I think it should have been wireless as well

Yeah, you should just get a Wii and a 360. I personally won't buy a PS3 until it's down to $300 or maybe $400 at the most. But who knows how long that will be.

I will def. get a PS3, cuz I liked the PS2 very much (and still use it).
The past has shown that there are much nicer games available for PS than for the XBox.

nishi, I see these stories a lot and it makes me laugh that people are so f***ing careless with their property. It's like they lost all common sense once they got the system. Honestly, if you have a brain, and you use it, and you take precautions, this shouldn't be happening.

You don't have to swing your hands like a weirdo to play any of the games. And if you do, just hold onto the damn controller like you should be doing. Even if you have a sweaty hand at the time (which you should...I dunno...wipe?), holding onto the thing should not be a problem at all. The strap is there for extra support, not total prevention, you still need to actually hold the controller regardless. If you're swinging it with so much unnecessary force that you break the strap and fling it into the TV, then I don't think the problem lies with Nintendo's strap...

My mom plays boxing and bowling all the time and she puts in more effort than she needs to (she actually does the walk up and the hard swing for bowling) but she reads the warnings before each game and knows how to grip a controller so this is not even a problem. Our strap is still just fine after daily usage. Those strings are a lot more durable than they look. The only way she'd break the TV is by just plain letting go of the controller and not using the strap at all.
