Come on then, fess it up. How many of you are dropping cash on new post E3 goodies then and what are you grabbing?

Me: Potential trade in for the "knee chopped" new 360.
Probably a grudging purchase of Kinect..."for the missus, yeah...definitely for the missus"
Potentially a 3DS because I've had a phat DS for too long.
Pretty much most of the big PS3 titles announced so far.
New NFS.
Driver because it sounds completely fucknutted!

Go you.

I will probably buy some games that will be mentioned there (though none of those mentioned during the Microsoft conference for obvious reasons). Don't think I will buy any of the hardware, except maybe Move. If they announce Move support for Everybody's Golf I will definitely buy those two things.

I would buy Kirby EpicYawn if I had a Wii. That game looks lovely.

PS: I wouldn't buy the 3DS. Mostly because the console itself looks terrible. :/

Project Dust sounds interesting, but I haven't seen it in action.

Nothing else has grabbed me so far except knowing the chances of me buying a kinect have plummeted.

Hmm, what's that?

...

TrailerI'm intrigued. Wonder what kind of game it is.

No new handhelds, no waving about like a mong in front of a camera, no supporting EA's decision to kill off Burnout.

I will definitely be getting a new 360 on day one, though, as my other one just broke.

Epic Yarn and Donkey Kong for me I think.

Not sure on the Kinect/Move stuff yet, I certainly don't want both.

Guys who "will buy" the 3DS:

How much do you use your current DSi? How much did you use your old DSLite? And your DSPhat? Your limited edition DS? How about your prototype Japanese model? Your GB Micro? How many spare faceplates did you have for it? ;)

Ha, well I had a DS Lite and played it before bed most nights until I sold it to my sister who wanted one for my nephew as she couldn't get one anywhere at the time.

Since then, my iPhone/iPad has filled that void but I can see me buying into the 3DS again no probs.

And as the owner of an international games website, well I have to really don't I?

:P

DSi XL - i use daily for games. Used the Internet on it twice maybe.

DS Lite/DSi - didn't have one.

DS Phat - pretty much daily up until i bought the XL.

No faceplates, no limited editions, no GBA SP, no japanese prototypes.

My PSP has been sat gathering dust for months now. Actually, i probably couldn't tell you where it is but my XL is in my bag next to me :P

Disappointing, Jelly, you don't fit my nice pigeonhole. :(

I, ironically, almost fit it quite nicely, having bought all the iterations of Ninty's handhelds since the GBC (including the Famicom colored GB Micro and a couple of other faceplates, and a second, limited edition, GBA SP), although I managed to stop at the DSLite since the i looked so pointless.

Despite slagging it off, I'm sure I'll end up with a Kinect and some sort of workout thing. And that Star Wars game.

I need to see a lot more Kinect in actual action rather than the pre-recorded bullpuckey i've seen this week before i decide. I also need to see some games that i actually want to play too.

MS was the most disappointing conference at E3. I wanted to be convinced to buy into their shenanigans not be put off even more.

PS3 Move for me. Very impressed by it. I certainly prefer waving my arms around whilst holding something.

I'd get Move if it wasn't so retardedly priced. It's looking like at least $100 to buy the camera, wand and nav controller separately.

At that price it's only in a bundle that I'd get it. Kinect too seems way overpriced, they're just not at impulse buy levels.

You may argue that without a new console generation the public has the buying power for it but frankly they're asking more than the tech is worth. They'll still sell though.

Very true - both systems are way outside impulse purchase territory.

So far, nothing. Kinect would have got a look in had it not been for the ruling that it can't be used alongside "real" controllers. I was hoping it would be used to enhance "normal" games but MS seem dead set upon having Kinect for casual only.

PS Tiger, the PSEye is usually available for under a tenner, 15 if you buy it with Eyepet. The Move combo set looks like it's going to cost 50, so not as bad as the US press are making out. Plus if you buy the camera separately it's less to fork out in one go later

3DS may finally break me and get me to buy a DS.

I'll have to try Move before I'm convinced on gaming that requires physical exertion. Portal 2 I'll have,

I was always going to get GT5, although after waiting this long I have zero enthusiasm for it.

The 360 stuff just seemed designed to attract people who already own a 360. Too much of the bullshit Kinect demos that didn't match what was on-screen.

New Goldeneye is tempting, but I'm really not in the market for new hardware, so, we'll see.

I'll likely get a 3DS insteal of fixing my two broken DS Lites.

Depending on seeing it in the flesh and liking it, of course.

Has E3 started? Sorry, been a bit busy.

Um... I'll buy everything. Except any shit I have to "waggle" at the screen. Or PR guff. I'm not buying any of that. Except from Uncle Pete. Even thought I didn't like Fable 2 as much as the original.

Sorry guys, I come crawling on my knees begging forgiveness.

Having now watched Ninty's conference rather than just reading reports, I will be buying pretty much most things they put out over the next year, I guess, including the 3DS. ;_;

The combo set doesn't include the seperate nunchuck thingy though Rhythm, and that's another 30.

Trading in the Wii for the Move junk, saving for a 3DS. I only want Pilotwings and Starfox from what was mentioned, but I figure F-Zero is a dead cert as well. Hopefully they won't just stop at an F-Zero X port, as that game sucked serious ass.

I'm also tempted to wait a while and see if they do a 3DS XL.
