I have no reason to buy a NextBox or XBox720 or XBox 3.0 or whatever they want to call it.
Microsoft's numbering system is a little silly. We all know it's their 3rd release of a console, but they don't dare actually put 3 anywhere in the Xbox's title.

The only two consoles I've bought on or near launch were the :ps2: and :wii:

Likely I'll wait until a price drop or slim model for the PS4. And I've actually been a loyal Sony customer.

Thats because it isn't a numbering system. They called it the 360 because it was a complete turnaround from the original xbox which was black and convex, to a more modern-looking console that was white and concave. Haven't you heard of the saying "doing a 360"?

It isn't much different from going from gameboy > gameboy color > gameboy advance > gameboy advance sp.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any consoles that use a numbering system (aside from Sony)

I got a GCN and Wii around launch, everything else I got later in the game. Other than handhelds, I've been pretty on top of those.

Just sold one of my TF2 hats for $425 PayPal cash money-money. :hot:

I spent <$25 on it, but it definitely is worth around $425-475. The buyer had two of them. Mine was 1 of 2 in the world. You do da math!

He can pretty much dictate the price on them a bit now. :lol:

It was done more for more of a marketing standpoint so that the 'second' Xbox controller would look comparable to the 'third' playstation. You can't release and Xbox 2 and have people think it's equivilant to the Playstation 3.

Double post and OTT padding.

After only about 3 hours in, I think I'm done with Dead Rising 2: Off The Record.
Combat is way too slow and clunky, and checkpoints are exercise in frustration. Look, if I start over at a checkpoint I need to do it a full health, not the one puny square I had when I entered the door.

Nice. It's surprising considering he's about to release that album with his wife and How to Destroy Angels.

I heard he was working on a new NIN album, but I hadn't read about the tour until I saw that this morning.

Got dat 670 SLI up and running. It's pretty crazy how different the eVGA 670 SC and FTW are. They have the same reference cooler on them, but the FTW is a slightly longer board, the mounting holes are different, and the material used to attach the cooler is different.

Did somebody say Wonder?

This will wash the shitty taste out of my mouth that the previews for that terrible Carrell/Carrey movie. I was telling Trakan the other day that the only way that movie would have been halfway decent would have been if it was the Tony Wonder story.

Great little short on the T206 Honus Wagner.

It really makes me hope that Olbermann gets on TV doing something again soon.

I went and looked at what some of my rarer shit was worth just now, and I am sad. Shit like my Rickey Henderson rookie card is worth like 40 bucks (I think I paid 80 like 15 years ago) and the Topps 1983 set doesn't go for shit now.

Maybe in 50 years that stuff will be worth something.

I was going thru old comics, and it turns out I have 1-8; 10-12 first editions of the original Eastman and Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I also have Groo the Wanderer...best comic book ever.
