There Hopefully this topic will be flame - free. I don't know if I would call myself a "hardcore" gamer. I just hate that term. But...I love Videogames. They have always been a big part of my life and probably always will be. I own almost all the major systems that have been released here - and so... I bought a Dreamcast at launch,and that was the first 128-bit console. Therefore, I consider it a next-gen system. I also bought a PS2 at launch. I've been happy with what I have gotten out of them so far. (Though the PS2 only lately has had some A+ games). I have stated before that I'm buying a Gamecube at launch. I love Star Wars, and finally being able to Play the movie like I've always dreamed is enough for me to warrant buying that system. ( Of course, all the other cool upcoming games don't hurt either ) With that purchase, & all the cool DVD's coming this holiday season, unless I come into some money, I won't be getting the X-Box at its launch. But...I have every intention of buying one once I have the extra cash for it. Simply because I believe that it will have good games that I'll like. Games that will be only available for thatOne particular system...just as you can only get certain games on the other three. So, I'd like to know if any of my fellow HTF gamers out there look at this the way I do, and just have all the systems. Watching where this goes should be interesting... ------------------ "Never give up!!! .......... Never surrender!!!!!!!!!."
