Prices of consoles.
I was amazed today when I saw Nintendo Gamecubes at EB going for $199.95. These are brand new... not trade-ins.
I just had to get one.... also got a "Party Pack" for $29.95... containing 1 extra controller, Mario Party game and $50 voucher towards magazine subscription.... thats $200 worth of gear.
Now I havent played it yet (Ive got Zelda in my sights for tonight) so I cant compare between it and the PS2 or Xbox.
I can say that I find the Xbox to be much better than the PS2.
The Gamecube is so small its not funny.... I can see its benefits but I can also see its bad points.... but seeing as Ive got all 3 consoles i'm set.
Oh yeah... I got my Gamecube from BigW (EB didnt have any party packs left & you can only get them with a console).... BigW matched EB's price... which they werent happy about considering they are selling theres for $318. hehe
