First, let me say that I'm really not a gamer. The last system I really played with was a Super Nintendo. Back when I used to play console games, I did have a lot of fun.
Anyway, it's about time I upgraded. I've been looking to buy a newest generation system for a while now, and everyone kept telling me to hold off for the Playstation 3 which was slated for this spring. Well, they delayed the release until late this year or early next year. After hearing that, I decided I was not interested in waiting any more. So, I've been looking at the Xbox 360, and I finally ordered one today.
I couldn't just order the system since all these vendors are selling them in bundles only.
Xbox 360 Platinum System $400
Xbox 360 Wireless Controller $50
Project Gotham Racing 3 (Xbox 360) $49
Fable (Xbox) - Bonus Game $0
Xbox 360 Play and Charge Kit $20
Shipping: $0 (Yay!)
Taxes: $43 (Boo!)
Grand Total: $562
I don't think I got ripped off, and if I did, oh well. A console gaming system is the type of purchase that I'll be making about once every decade... if that. Anyway, I'm excited.
