not suggesting you buy a wii or anything... but i have zelda ocarnia of time plus the older ones through the wii shop. they made a back-catalogue of them all.

i don't know of shenmue or whatever its called is in there though. i bought my n64 second hand purely for zelda. i dont know if i had any other game for it.

Those rumours have existed since about 6 months after the last shenmue game came out, what, 10 years ago? :P


Don't you quash my dreams! I'm still hanging onto it dammit! :P yeah it's been announced then cancelled the announced then cancelled ever since 2 came out, it was originally touted for release on the original xbox about 7 years ago, I remember getting my hopes up, how naive :lol:

You should, it was great. Part final fantasy, part fable in the sky is how I'd describe it now.

I'm so sad that I sold my SNES! I wish I had it now to distract me from essays . . . :(
I'm gonna buy a 360 and get my friend to get his PS2 out more often for old Final Fantasy :D
It'll be like I'm 16 again. Also, emulator for PC and get Zelda? can I do that?

You can get emulators for owt nowadays, Google it.

I gave my snes to my cousin years ago cos she didn't have any console. I went round weeks later to find it covered in dust in the corner. Wish I'd taken it back, zelda and yoshi's island were great :(

Get what your friends have, personally I like the PS3 more but if your friends have a console already you already have a library of borrowable games, even forgetting about online. Both systems will use almost the same data allowance for online gaming and it's surprisingly small...
One big plus on the PS3 side is bluray, if you have a HD TV and aren't sure about going purely digital download for your films...

To the poster who said that wifi signal is crap, it's either a fault or your router's crap, my PS3 is as far from my router as my house allows and I have lag free gaming and never have connection problems full stop. Some routers do not like all wifi cards, it's the same for all consoles and laptops etc.
