Hey y'all.

Ok, i'm on a paper round, and i usually get around £20 a week.

What i'm thinking is turning my room into an "entertainment centre". by this, i mean getting a 27" lcd tv.

link

And after this, which'll take me to near April, i'm thinking of getting either an Xbox, PS3 or a Wii.

Now, firstly is it worth even bothereing?

Secondly, your oppinion on which console to get.

And also, any other ideas for a 13-year old in the UK to increase his cashflow

Do it.

It will be glorious. And get an Xbox 360 with Xbox Live.

I don't think its worth it...no.

If you absolutely must get a next gen console, I would go for the ps3.

i'd say it's worth it, but then again i'm earning a considerable amount more than £20 per week so perhaps not. we have similar ideas though, i got the wii and i'm getting the TV soon

go for the ps3, but just wait a while. the price is going to plummet soon, because they arent selling nearly as well as sony had hoped.

also, i've always been against consoles, my dad owns a gaming pc, which, when asked to, could own all consoles.

But for some reason, i seem to like the idea of having one, especially online

Talking from experience or just being an arse?

He won't necessarily play on it every minute of every day...
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I hate TV, hate video games, and especially hate spending money on TV and video games.


Donate that money to charity, you cruel, heartless, bastard!

Go for it, but get the Wii. It already has the sales to be the top of this gen of console gaming, but later next year, some good 3rd party games should start popping up.

Are you actually telling him to get a Wii because it has the top sales?

Hey, he might as well start listening to Fallout Boy because they've got a lot of fans, so it must be good, right?

I have nothing against the Wii, it's a pretty solid console, but the 360 is the best when you've got live and some good games.

OR

Get a 360 because it's... y'know... good. Multi-format discs are released early next year, so you won't need to worry about this Blu-Ray con, they'll be compatible with the 360.

Get the PS3. Far more advanced than anything out there/blu-ray (which has won each week every week this year) free online play, won't break on you, ever. (at least being in 120 degree heat for 108 hours straight, then 0 degree heat for the same amount of time, still works fine)
