Not yet - we may get it next month. Just trying to pick a platform. I want it on the PS3 (in my room) but if my son is playing it all the time that'll be an issue.

When I was at Wally World the other night...the only had 1 copy left for X360

I would probably get it for 360...as I HATE the Wii controls.

Agreed. Some games require a standard controller.

I have it. My two kids and I have been loving it. Big fan of the Lego series.

I have a PS3 and 360, PSP, DS, and a Wii in a closet somewhere.

Ha ha I knew there had to be something.
I posted this in the main thread because i hadn't found this thread yet. But here it is

Ok excited and unsure. I know someone can help or at least guide me. I finally got approval from the boss (DW) to upgrade from a ps2 to a ps3. Managed to get the Uncartered 3 bundle 320gb PS3. Now questions I have are do any of you play (probably could have asked this first), and what would you suggest?

I am sure there is a disdad gaming thread (because there is a disdad thread for just about everything) and I will look for it. But if there isn't I figured I would post here.

Thanks in advance.

As for gaming systems we have
Wii
PS3 (In the mail, not here yet)
DS
DSi
2x PS2
Nintendo 64
Nintendo (everyone should have the original)
Sega
and computers
I do have two boys so I am not the only one who plays these

Thinking of getting myself a game thing as a post Christmas gift. The question is which one? See myself using it for solo/dual play. Probably not going on line. Games I would be interested are sports' games (football, baseball, etc.) and shoot em ups.

So, what should I buy and what are some good games to look at based om my interests.

I always enjoed the Xbox. I am considering getting one. The Madden and NCAA Football for it are awesome!

I Vote Xbox 360 + Kinects.

Never could get used to the PS2-3 controllers...Left Analog Stick is in the wrong place.

As far a games...I lean toward the Family Style game...Lego primarily...Also have Disney Universe...and Hope to get Disneyland Adventures for the Kinects for Christmas...can't wait to explore DL...not really interested in the "games"...just want to tour the park.

DS11 loves the Madden 'YY NFL games...and NBA 2kYY...he likes MArio Slugger for the Wii for baseball.

Only Shooters we have or allow are Star Wars Battlefront 1 and 2...which were for the original Xbox....requires a Hard-drive and software add-on to work with the 360.

I am going to have to disagree with trennr. I think the Playstation is a better format. (imo) It seems to have a better selection of games, graphics seem better (but that can vary with your tv). Of course there are the youtube videos of games you can view to help decide. And there is the "instore reasearch" (at least that is what i call it) where you play the systems at the store. (i do this a lot) One other thing is, should you ever decide to play online (and i don't know how restricted you are) playstation has a free access online network and then you can upgrade to i don't know what because i am not on it yet, where from what i have heard xbox network you have to pay to play. So this probably didn't help you any and just brought up more things to look into.

It sounds like my step-mom is going to buy my boys a Xbox 360 for christmas so if this is true then A) I am going to be buying a lot of used games because two new systems with new game costing 40-60 each just isn't going to happen, B) I will be able to test both and work on a better review. But i favor PS as of right now.

I have a list of gamertags on another thread, but maybe we could/should combine these two threads? I didn't realize we already had this older thread when I started the other one.

Whats up guys?

Let's see...
Xbox360
Wii
Kinect (under the Christmas tree...cannot wait)

Speaking of the Kinect...has anyone played Disneyland? I just bought it and that too will be going under the tree. I'm sure my kids (6 1/2, almost 4) will love it. I'm also guessing Santa will be bringing me MW3...can't wait!

Watched a play thru on "Inside the Magic"...the Host said the game is worth it just to explore the park...as far as the games within the game...he wasn't over impressed with them...

I hope this game is under my tree for me.
