    As some may have noticed I've been getting back into video games a bit, and as I'm looking around at stuff my curiosity is peaked on a few things. Just wondering so here it goes.

    newb, the real atari 2600 had six switches on the front... like this...

    [​IMG]

    the later / noob model only had 4. ;)

    At any rate, I will probably end up getting both X360 and PS3 eventually... just gonna wait for the price to be closer to $200 before I do.

    I'm a playstation fan hands down, but the anticipated price for the ps3 is outrageous, so I'll wait a while to get one

    remember when you had to remove the cartridge and clean the contacts,,,or what alot of people did,,,blow on the cartridge and then reinsert to get the game to load up???



    :thinking: some of that doesn't sound right:doah:

    anyhoo, i DO still have mine, had two at one time, not sure if we still do or not, but they are out in the storage shed, tucked away somewhere.:crazy:

    The PS3 is way over priced! I bought the ps2 a few years ago and then got an xbox the next year. Ever since then I only play xbox. My friend's got the 360 and just got Saint's Row. That game is friggin sweet

    I'll probably buy the 360 when the price drops

    I hate everyones controller , except for Sony's . I play PS2 , and when the prices come down soon after the novelty wears off , I will buy a PS3 (don't tell my wife ) . Just so I can play baseball and car games which are all that matters in my world :thumb:

    Yeah I just can't get past the opening price of the PS3.

    When a Wii is suppossed to STILL debut at $200, I see no reason for a $600 console. I just bought my PS2 Slim at $100. I love it, but wouldn't be worth more than that to me.

    I paid $20.00 for my PS3. Brand new from the store with Madden 07. But I traded like 25 games and My PS2 system and one controler plus a memory card. I miss some of my games. IDIOT. Its cool though.
