A retarded Sonic.
the old ps3's have big overheating issues. almost all I known have broken in the past 1 or 2 years. the newer ones don't seme to have these issues. 360 is a mess
At the price they sell this shit at, I'm done with current-gen stuff. Not enough good games on these fucking systems to make the price worth my while.

That sucks, man. With the 360 you could at least use it for online and downloads. Get the Bionic Commando Rearmed games, Limbo, some shmups.
Too bad about the Wii but when the WiiU comes out they should drop and there are definitely worthwhile games, plus those not by Nintendo are cheap, eg S&P Star Successor sells online brand new for $10. (I know you don't use Ebay but you give somebody who does the cash).
And if you do get either running consider buying a fan, just a regular general purpose kitchen fan or whatever, to run exhaust on all your machines. If you only use the Xbox just get a USB fan (if it has those, the PS3 does--I haven't seen one for the Wii).
Noting ever beats a 3DO.
The prices of consoles today are actually quite reasonable.
I bought my Sega Genesis in 1989 for $289 and my Turbo Express in 1990 for $388.
Factor in inflation and you would think game systems today would be more than they are.
I forget what the average wage was in 1989, but you could buy a nice house in my neighborhood for around $100,000, now a tear down sells for around 1 million.
exactly that. videogaming has only gotten cheaper with the years. remember old cartridges that cost 70$ back in early 90s? now games costs like 50-60$ and with inflation that means nearly half the price of what games used to be. everything gets more expensive except gaming
Yeah, I pretty much have the entire Playstation library available on one console. I'd say that puts the 60gig in my top 3 consoles of all-time list.

I bought a 360 Elite back in 2008 and treated it great, plenty of space around it to breath and dusted frequently to keep the vents clean. What I got for my wonderful treatment of the console was that it died on me 2 months after the "extended" 3 year warranty and and had to buy a new console. The new 360 slim works great, but we'll see for how long.
I have the MGS bundle PS3 with backwards compatibility and just like the 360 it's been well cared for. It's been pretty solid the entire time, but the fans on it are getting really loud and I have a feeling it's going die any day soon(my friend has the same bundle and his died a couple months ago). I'm looking forward to a price drop so I can pick up a slim and not worry about the thermal paste on this continuing to dry out and overheat, sub $200 and I'll probably bite.
I bought a PS2 near launch and it's lasted a long time, but I've also had to do disc read error fixes on it at least 3 times over the last 10+ years. My original PS1 had to be placed sideways to work near the end of it's life, I bought a PSOne (redesign) and it's been doing an admiral job when I use it.
Now, for my SNES and Genesis systems, the biggest problem I've ever had with them is a bad power plug, or possibly the cracked solder joint for the connector on the board.
You tell me which of these listed I'll still be able to play games for on the original hardware in 30 years, I'm pretty sure I know which ones they'll be.
