Well I've had Gamecube for a week and there are currently no games that I really look forward to playing everyday. I just pop a game in, get bored, pop another in get bored.... You get the picture. Anyway I plan on keeping the GameCube as I do enjoy a lot of the games - but I haven't been overwhelmed by any games yet. I keep reading about Halo and really want to play this - also I want DOA 3 since I loved DOA 2 on Dreamcast. Also I have a HDTV and 5.1 setup that I want to take full advantage of. I have roughly $300 in Best Buy Gift Certs and 1 unopened GameCube game (SSX Tricky) so all told I see it as.. $300 Xbox $40 Extra Controller $20 HD A/V pak $50 Halo $50 DOA3 ---- $460 + tax of course so about $500 total So with the $300 in Gift Certs and a return of SSX I'd only be out about $150... So this makes it really tempting. I just would hate to be disappointed if it didn't live up to my expectations though. The Gamecube is a keeper but didn't give me that thrill I had when I got the N64 on launch. I'm hoping XBOX + Halo = that thrill. I was a huge fan of Half-Life and Unreal on the PC so I'm hoping that Halo would be right up my alley... So am I being greedy thinking about going for 2 consoles? I guess some people have all 3 so it wouldn't be that bad!
