Which Console Will You Get?

Just wondering what everybody thinks they're going to get, based on what we know so far.
Personally, I'm going to wait until the prices drop before I get anything.

Most probably PS3 and "screw consoles PC rule".

PS3 for Metal Gear Solid IV.
Of course, that's estimated to be released in 2007...  :'(

EDIT: EPIC DISAPPOINTMENT.

I never get something if I don't know what it is.
So that rules out Revolution.

I'd have to say if I had a chioce, I'd definitely buy a PS3 even if Revolution was put into the selection of choices.
Sorry Nintendo.

I don't count the PC as a console, as I always plan to have a PC alongside my consoles.  Anywho, I'm going to get a 360 when it comes out and then Nintendo's new console when it comes out.

Revolution

The other systems look like the same old stuff we are already playing.  With my Revolution and trusty PC I will be good to go.

I can't afford the new consoles at this time so I guess I'll be missing another generation and sticking with my good old N64.

As a Sony fanboy minted in the glory days of the Playstation, I'm obviously going to replace my PS2 with a shiny, white PS3. Maybe it's just brand loyaty or maybe  it's the fact that the PS3's hardware ruins the face of anything else competing with it.

Although, I also have developer loyalty to certain studios. Certainly Hideo Kojima and Polyphony are staying with Sony. But since it looks like Square's going to go big with the X360, I may purchase one of those at some point.
kthxbye

Revolution.

1. I'm a Nintendo fanboy. (and proud of it ::))
2. It's probably the cheapest.
3. Retro gaming !!

Well ok, it is not fact, but everyone's pretty sure....
Engadget/Joystiq says PS3 is going to be around 400$ maybe up to 500$ depending on the drive problems, 360 299$ and rev around 200$....

I mean, Nintendo made the cheapest consoles for the last generation....
They won't change their strategy I think. They sell the GC for 99 Euros over here and still make profit !

After all, from what we know, they try to avoid expensive parts:
- no next-gen drive
- no harddrive
- not that powerful specs

So I am pretty sure that the Rev will be the cheapest......
But you're right, it is not 100% sure....

Sony is hinting it will be aroung 300$ like the other playstations.

Aren't they promising a lot of new things like the downloadable games and gamespy online gaming?

True.
How are you gonna store the downloaded games then?
Aren't they saying it is gonna be pretty powerfull? I am not sure I was swearing at reggie all the time.

So I am pretty sure that the Rev will be the cheapest......
But you're right, it is not 100% sure....

None of us are before we go to shop and buy it.
