Next Generation Consoles

Probably like many of the BOL listeners, I was interested in seeing how the Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii would sell when it was first released. I was not surprised to see massive lines and such, but I was surprised however to find people being mugged and potentially breaking their HD television sets or laptops. Again, I was not surprised to see how many Playstation 3s got sold on Ebay for OUTRAGEOUS amounts of money. Yet, I feel sorry for those people who paid that much. A friend of mine went to the local Best Buy today to have her laptop fixed, and one of the workers asked her if she wanted to buy a Playstation 3 or Wii as the shipment just arrived. Unfortunately, she turned down the offer due to not being interested in video games or trying to sell it afterwards. I guess the lesson here is to just wait. Furthermore, as the console war has ensued, I too have realized the Xbox 360 is coming out with some very awesome games. Gears of Wars and F.E.A.R look really awesome, despite having grown up on the SNES, Zelda, and the PS2. However, I am a poor college student that doesn't have time to play any longer, however I do have time to type this and look on, instead of studying for finals week.
