Default Now I have them all........

Almost exactly a year ago, I bought a HD DVD player...and LOVED the picture on my PLasma TV...then I got into the format wars, HD DVD lost, and I bought a PS3 (80 gig motorstorm version).....and I was impressed with the console and enjoyed playing motorstorm with my kids.

A year later, I have added a Wii, a PS2 and just picked up an Xbox Pro Bundle from FutureShop during the boxing day sale. So now I have all 3 of the next Generation game consoles...and have added Halo 1,2 and 3 to my collection.....no longer do I have to pick sides....instead I can enjoy the best of all worlds. My wife and kids are addicted to Singstar and I think the lowly ps2 is an awsome value and recommend it to friends who are looking to get into a video game system on the cheap...many titles available under $10 used and under $20 new.

(now my biggest problem is lack of HDMI inputs on my Plasma tv, I only have 3 inputs but have 4 sources.)

Yeah, I was thinking the same...time for a switch box....when I bought the tv I figured 3 hdmi ports was on the excessive side.......I should have known better.

Congrats! I finalized the "Got 'em all," phase when I purchased my 360 HD-DVD player a while back. A few months before I purchased a Wii, a few months before that a 360 Elite, and a year before that I bought my PS3.

It is awesome having them all. Makes you feel so Mediabullet-proof. You can do ANYTHING you want to do.

I feel so.... strangely... powerful.

I got one from XtremeMac that I'm pretty happy with. Didn't pay $99 for it though, you can shop around to get it cheaper.

I too have one that works amazingly well, and they are the least expensive you will find.

I also have a TOSLINK/Optical Switcher from them that I used for my optical audio switching. Works perfectly.
