Wii. Although not straight away, probably.

So far MGS and MGS2 have been ported to PC, pretty good chance it will happen again.
Yeah, but they suck lots.

I'm not that bothered about Metal Gear Solid, but I would beg Kojima to make an original game for the system. From what I've heard from SpiderChii about Boktai, he could do some awesome stuff with the Wii. The man's a genious.

Lunar Nights for DS

It's only a matter of time before he goes to Wii.

Needs to make a new ZOE game too.

Kojima needs to be hired on to make a James Bond game. He's obviously obsessed with the series... he'd do a great job with it.

Lunar Knights looks rad.

And I always say, buy consoles over PCs so you don't have to upgrade every two years. Processor speed upgrades about every 18 months. Then you don't have to worry over whether or not a PC will run a game; it's guaranteed. And generally, when consoles come out, they have graphics and processing speed equal to or above those of PCs (later on the PCs surpass the consoles, but for the reason stated above).

With consoles online now, patches and updates come as frequently as they do with PCs. And whereas most people on PC game sonline don't have Ventrilo or similar software and have to use a keyboard for all their talking, EVERYONE on consoles does.  :P

And what's wrong with controllers? I'd rather sit on a nice leather sofa and play a game on a huge, widescreen, HD TV with a wireless rumble controller (or motion sensor, natch) than sit in a cramped office with a monitor smaller than my TV screen.

It's all preference, so whatever. I prefer to buy something that's guaranteed to run for $500 less than fiddle around with PC specs that will be outdated in two years, but still cost me $1000 upwards.

That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

No more than they did in psx/ps2.

I much rather sit with a keyboard and mouse, or joystick if needed, in front of a high resolution monitor in a nice $1000 hermanmiller chair than any couch with a hdtv with one inch pixels. :P

I'm talking about those of us without thousands of dollars.  ;)

I'd prefer to have even just a smaller HD TV over a computer monitor (And you can adjust resolution on HD TVs so they don't have one-inch pixels  :P ).

Keyboard + mouse = more stress on the hands and wrists.

Nope. PC version has lots of crap cut from it and is overall lamer.

Not to mention console games just control better on consoles.

Geometry Wars is uber-addictive, and if Lumines really is coming out for Arcade, then I'm perfectly set.  :D

From: link'GridWars is basically a PC version of the popular Xbox 360 game, Geometry Wars. Made by Mark Incitti, this release features less special effects compared to the original but also new controls to cater for players who do not own a dual analog joypad.'

You don't need lots of money, just need to prioritize. Car? Pfft waste of money. Girlfriend? Would probably be cheaper to just get a hooker every day if you really want to waste money that bad. Clothing? Who needs it, no one else will see you buming around naked at the PC or whatever in your parents basement. Food? Sapporo Ichiban ought to be enough for anyone to survive on. :P

I'd prefer to have even just a smaller HD TV over a computer monitor (And you can adjust resolution on HD TVs so they don't have one-inch pixels  :P ).

You can't adjust pixel size if it is LCD/Plasma/SED. Changing the resolution just causes it to be interpolated which only makes things much worse.

Keyboard + mouse = more stress on the hands and wrists.

Not if you use them properly.

But I believe you can on the CRT tellies (?). If not, well, then my point is moot.

My desk even has one of those things to rest your wrists on when you type, and they still hurt every once in a while.
