    Just gotta remember, this is the XBox last push for sales before the dramatic price drops come. We are getting closer to the next X-Box and the next Playstation, so expect about a $50 drop in the next few months, and then another $50 drop come the announcement of the new systems. It’s just the way it works.
    I will say though that the decision for my next system all relies on the ability to transfer over downloaded content (ie arcade games, movies, etc…) to the new system. I’m not looking forward to my 200+ arcade games and various downloads being obsolete on the new system. Nintendo did it the right way, now I’m just waiting for MS and Sony to announce their intentions.

      I agree with you with almost everything except that Nintendo did it the right way. I had about 25 old 90’s snes and sega genesis games installed on my Wii from the Virtual Console. My Wii was registered with Nintendo including Club Nintendo so was all my games. But for me to transfer my games from the Wii to the Wii U, I had to put a memory card into my Wii U, then Wii, and then Wii U again. I had already gave away my Wii before getting the Wii U. You can just imagine the shame. The right way is allowing me just to download it on the Wii U.

        I feel for ya. That does suck. But one thing that it does is take the license off the old system and put it on the new (deleting it off the old in the process). Any way you can borrow the system back and do the exchange?
        My niece just exchanged her broken Wii at gamestop and the replacement had downloaded games on it, so that person is kind of out of luck as well if they were to get a wii U and expect to get their old downloads back.
        I’d call Nintendo and plead upon their mercies… you never know, you might get lucky.

    I have been waiting and looking for a discount on Xbox Live Gold.

    Cool, just spoke with a friend and they had a blast with the family playing Kinect over the holidays. They are going to probably return a nice Roku and put that amount towards a new Xbox + Kinect. Happy Times!

    So we are almost to the point where it’s cheaper to buy an Xbox with a hard drive, than buy a hard drive for an Xbox.
