My favourite thread is back <3

Im with Jafar on pretty much all this. If you want bigger and shinier (and staler in my opinion) games then go with MS or sony. If you actually want to try something different to whats been around since gaming began then try out Nintendo. The DS and Rev are actually trying to innovate and expand the market rather than just cater to hardcore fans who are actually starting to shrink in general.

...Saying that though, I am extremely impressed with how MS have gone about getting alot more Japanese dev support, the most exciting being mistwalker who have some of the crem de la crem of Japanese game makers. Once the price drops to a reasonable one (and the games cost less than £45 each :@) I shall most likely get a 360. No PS3 for me though.

So far with handhelds I'm leaning towards the DS. PSPs have been pretty buggy so far and I'm looking forward to FF3 on DS not FF7 sequels which will be going to PSP.

The DS is a nice change from the normal, with the second screen and all. So far there aren't many games on it that I like. But even so, I am really liking it so far. The only thing that sways me towards the PSP is GTA:LCS and MediEvil. Still I see myself getting a DS.

With consoles though the Revolution just isn't interesting me. I've always been with Nintendo, but this time MS has sucked me in. PS3 would have me if it weren't for the whole memory card issue. I mean why even make it back compatible if you can't play your saved games, and unless there is a way around that I will probably stick with MS.

Anyway that sums up my opinion :P

From what I hear, the DS was not the first handheld that does what it does, but I still like it. 

I am very excited about the Revolution, will never actually touch an X-Box 360, and am only considering borrowing a potential friend's PS3 so that I can play MGS4.

I don't think Atari has aged as well as the NES. :P
As for the Rev controller, it looks a heck of alot more comfortable then that PS3 boomerang. ;P
Besides, if you don't like it, you can just "plug" it into the shell and use it like a GC controller.

If you're comfortable with any controller, it shouldn't be a problem since the shell is just like the GC controller. ;P

So, being a Nintendo product automatically makes it bad?

LOL! Yeah me and my mates call it a boomerang. It doesn't look very good and I doubt it would be very "comfortable" :P

Yeah, N64 was great XD

Although I never owned one proper, the N64 had ALOT of good games, and is really underrated.

i don' tlike buying nintendo systems because i don't think that they're worth paying for.  if someone else has a nintendo system, i'll play it because i can hold my own in some games.
