But if you are a REAL cheapass, you would know how to take off $25 of that total. (I do. =) )

:lol: Awesome. 7 games looks like a bit too much, taking me to $717.

Console, 5 games and extra controller for $590. I can dig it. I'd like to get one of those crappy racing games to get the steering wheel attachment, but I guess that will have to wait, unless GT Pro ends up being good or somethin, that might replace ExciteTruck.

Okay, no more lamenting the price. Since I can now see that for the price of a PS3, I can get a Wii, two controllers, 6 games (if you include Wii Sports) and even the component cables (at their horrid estimated cost of $60), I'm sold.

Wii
Zelda: Twilight Princess

Total: $311.98

I already pre-ordered the Wii at GameStop, and put down $259.50, and I also pre-ordered Zelda and put down $5.

So come launch day, I'll pay just under $50 and walk out a happy man. :D

I also have a pre-order for Trauma Center, that I'll probably pick up on launch as well. I'm still on the fence about Red Steel, and I may or may not get some Wii Points, and an extra controller set (remote/nunchaku). Of course that will all make things a little more expensive. But hey, at least i'm not getting a PS3. XD

$423.95
System
Zelda
Wiimote + Nunchuck
Classic Controller
2000 Points

Only other cost I forsee is component cables for hopefull around <$30 (if they're $50+ I'm gonna be pretty darn upset). And, if a bundle is forced on me, depending on the game, I'll just return them right away, Trade-List'em, or play they just to see what their like (which would be the case if I get Red Steel or Madden forced on me). I've now made over $700 selling crap out of my collection that I wouldn't play... so I'm getting this thing for free, the way I look at it. :) And still have plenty left over for Mario Galaxy, Mario Strikers, Metroid Prime 3 all on release day.

Why do I have a feeling that one of the first things I play will be Mario World? ;)

Oops! I did it again.

Posted 21 September 2006 - 08:40 PM

Had to do the sales tax myself, my county is at 9% (ouch).

Nintendo Wii with WiiSports
Elebits
Excite Truck
Madden 07
Red Steel
Super Monkey Ball
Zelda
Tony Hawk

$653.91

I should have JUST ENOUGH in the budget to be able to tack on a component cable to that. Also, I might buy another game instead of Madden 07 - it depends on whether or not I'm getting tired of the game itself on Xbox by then (I have a tendency to over-do it with my sports games when I first get them and then I'm tired of 'em for a while).

After that, I'll be kickin' it in Brokesville for quite a while.

^^ Wii+Zelda = $300 or so

I don't have a job. Fuck you college. But I DID make sure to save me a portion from my summer earnings so I could at least get that.

I had one last summer. I was asleep for it so I have no recollection of anything being up my ass.
