Man with the Plan

Posted 05 October 2006 - 01:20 AM

I have a question for you all. Are you planning on getting a Wii at launch or are you gonna wait? I personally have preordered mine.

I'm going to have sex with one and return it.

Then buy another.

So I guess technically the answer is awhile.

If I can pre-order I will, otherwise I will camp. Regardless I'll be shooting to get one on launch.

I originally was in the hype about must getting it at launch but now I'm over it. For me the budget I had in mind just wouldn't work with the pricing it is now. With the price of the component cable and basically mandatory other controllers, it's just a little too much for my cheap ass.

Have they confirmed a price on the component cable?

I'm in at launch, but I see the wisdom in waiting.

I'm waiting because I'm not sure if I want to get one yet. Plus I don't want to find out the first batch is buggy or something.

I'm getting it at launch, I typically don't get consoles at launch, but I can't fucking wait for it.

Ebay as many as I can. And depending on how many units I get and how much it goes for on ebay I will probably end up keeping one.

I'm going to wait awhile since there's a few 360 titles I want in November, and since the only game I really want at launch is Zelda.

I am going to wait , even though I am building up credit towards one. I really want a black one. Plus I'll be able to see how good/bad the games are, how well the system performs, bugs etc...

If it's at a store when I'm there and I have the money, I'll get it. But I'm not making any special trips or waiting in lines or any of that crap.

I'm waiting cause...I don't know if I want one yet with this new way of playing and less powerfulness or the more powerfulness and same old play. I might wait 1-2 years before I decide...right now I'm sick of nintendo, it's ALL I'VE OWNED since the SNES. SNES, N64, GCN, and I had a PS1 for a liiiittle bit. But basically 99% of my gaming in my house was Nintendo and I'm liking my PS2 a lot more right now.

I'm waiting. I have a bunch of PS2 and Gamecube games I haven't even opened yet so I'll get the Wii once there is a price drop on the system, or once games are under $20. I'm in no rush to get the system

when player's choice comes out and the price drops to 150.00 or so. Ditto for the PS3 when GH comes out and the console drops to about 400.00 for the 60GB

Definitely launch. I would buy a 360 but Microsoft has screwed over poor college students (I don't have $150 for a new TV with composite inputs or $400 for the console) but I can definitely afford $250 for a Wii. Plus, I am aboslutely DYING to play Zelda, Metroid, Super Smash, Wario, and Mario. Those 5 games are all system sellers to me. And I cannot wait to play Wii Sports either. It just looks extremely fun.
