The reason I am asking is this: Kmart is currently having their big Toy Sale for Christmas. You heard correctly, Christmas. No, it's not Christmas season gone wild, it's just that during the sale Kmart have no-deposit lay by until Christmas, so it's perfect for people who have a lot of presents to buy, or big presents to buy, etc.
Currently they have good deals on the game consoles as part of this sale, and I'm thinking of picking up one (or at least, I was thinking of picking up one, now I'm thinking of picking up two, maybe all three) and paying it off as I go.
Prices for the sale are:
Platinum Game Cube with hand controller - $98 (no games or accessories)
Miscellaneous Game Cube games and accessories - from $29.95 to $79.84
PlayStation 2 pack (includes console, hand controller, 8Mb memory card, Ratchet & Clank 2 and Midnight Club) - $298
PS2 accessories - $9.89 to $47.84
Miscellaneous PS2 game - 2 for $50 and $26.84 to $79.84
XBox pack (includes console and 2 hand controllers, DVD remote, Crimson Skies and Blinx) - $298
XBox accessories - $29.84 to $47.84
Miscellaneous XBox games - 2 for $50 and $34.99 to $74.84
So, not sure what I want.
Games wise, I'm more of a platform type game person. Not really interested in the racing games and the fighting games, but that said I probably will get one fighting game of some sort, simply because a games machine needs one. Plus I remember when the PS2 first came out and friends had one, there was a snowboarding game that I quite liked the look off, because it wasn't just a racing game as there was also the tricks to pull during the race as well.
