An Xbox 360.. yes i'm VERY late on buying one.. but I never had the money to buy one, and whenever I did, I'd get guitar gear. Shame on me.

@Charlie... I had my mind set on the PS3 for YEARS since I never had the opportunity to own a PS2.. but all of my friends have a 360.. so I really got it to play online with them. Still, I don't regret getting it, being that I really wanted to own either system for the online experience mostly.

Buy a used PS2.
It's dirt cheap
A whole lot of fun
And it seems like there are compatibility problems with old PSX titles on the PS3
you can play those on the PS2.
Most games released today is xx--xx anyway.

But what happened to the PC as a gaming platform? I still prefer it.
Persona non grata.

Only consoles i've kept, maintained and used over the years is the old ones from Sega and Nintendo...
And my Atari's and Colecovision, but those see almost daily use.

My modified PS2's and Xboxes however, are mostly gathering dust.
Only thing i use my PS3 for is as a bluray player, and my Xbox 360 is a median between my pc and my TV (in other words, i use it as a media center).

Random purchase of the day : some books by "Uncle Fester" (Steve Preisler) : Silent Death *newer revision then my earlier copy*(about use of/instructions on how to make poisons, chemical and natural toxins, wargasses, nervegas, et all), Home Workshop Explosives (what could that possibly be about ? i wonder...) Secrets of Methamphetamine Manufacture (Wow man, i feel liek the f***ing energizer bunny!), Practical LSD Manufacture (woooah, far out man, heavy...), and Advanced Techniques of Clandestine Psychedelic & Amphetamine Manufacture (  :-X ).
I wonder what the folks @ the Dutch secret service will think of all these "bad books" that i'm importing, but... MEH.

@Xaromir, I agree I prefer the PC over any console as far as gaming, but sadly my computer's outdated and I can't afford to spend a $1000+ for a decent gaming computer. Hopefully in a few more years when I finally get my career sorted out, I'll get a new computer and a lot more guitar gear  :)

I just went to Half Price books and bought AC/DC's live album.  In fact, I'm listening to it as we speak. 

I bought it because it has most of the songs on it that I want to one day learn completely.

Well, not really a new purchase, since it's a trade, but i traded my Orange TT with custom 4x12 cab with 2 V30's and 2 G12's for a...

Wait for it...

Mesa/Boogie Rectifier with a 4x12 recto cab.
I am now officially going to blow the windows out of the rehearsal room this weekend.
Wonder how my drummer will like me blowing him away for a change.

Went to pick up my jazzmaster and come out with an Electo harmonix holy grail nano. This usually happens to me.

Last month, i went into currys for a new laptop and cames out with a new flatscreen, home cinema system and a new laptop.

Nothing as flashy, but I picked up a monster cable as an impulse buy while at GC this week.
