Biggest launch event in gaming history!

Playstation 3 launched on Friday November 17th and Wii launched yesterday, November 19th!
Two major consoles launched within 1 week! This has got to be the biggest launch event in gaming history.. lol Playstation 3, priced at 549CDN and 649CDN while Nintendo Wii at $279 for only the console. The playstation 3 stole most of the attention. In the states there had been almost a dozen PS3s stolen due to armed robbery. Some customers waiting in line for the Playstation were mugged and had their money stolen. All this trouble just for a gaming system.. 😮 outrageous I’ll say.. lol. The playstation 3 isn’t all that stable yet anyway. There are reports that the software is buggy and it seems a similar situation to the 360 launch happened. Problems for the end user. lol

Nintendo Wii game out yesterday. Stores such as Best Buy and Future Shop went on a first com first serve basis. so no pre-orders were allowed for either system. People would camp out in front of the store days or hours before the launch date. I don’t plan on getting either Playstation 3 or the Nintendo Wii until at least I have the cash and they have the problems fixed. Nintendo might not have any problems or much problems with the Wii. (Hopefully). for Sony will have problems with their Playstation 3 system as they’ve already been reported.. lol. The Nintendo wii system looks pretty cool.. original games and the motion sensitive controller.. the wii-mote! lol could act as a pretty cool fun in some games.. which might be a good thing. Playstation 3 however has some games that interests me. Such as Devil May Cry 4, Gran Turismo 5 (not too sure about HD considering its purely online apparently.. and you have to pay extra to collect their entire car line up and tracks.. :doh:) I also want xbox360. for the Halo games.. HAHA! Halo 3 and Halo Wars.. Yes i’ll admit.. I like the Halo series. I’ve played Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2. Read the Halo trilogy books and the recently published, Halo: Ghost of Onyx. Anyway. If I had the money, which system should I get first. its a showdown between “Microsoft XBOX360″,”Sony Playstation 3”, and “Nintendo Wii” which one would it be? also note that both Sony Playstation 3 and XBOX360 requires HD capable display to reach its full visual potential as it supposes 1080p. where as Wii only supports 480p.. lol
