As an aging gamer, (well, 23 anyway) i was gonna ignore the hype and wait till the 360 came down in price but all the talk and reading these forums is really taking its toll. I want one now! Watched a few videos on ign last week and was blown away, it looks amazing! I also bought a playstation 1 in the first week of release, followed by playstation 2 in the first week of release (subsiquently sold these poor machines after 6 months of ownership!) and an xbox in the first month of release. Better contine the trend!
