    Elder Scrolls IV looks very pretty, I might get it for the PC after I am finished Psychonauts.

    That GRAW game doesn’t float my boat. Chibi Robot looks like it may be my next console purchase (think thats out may though)

    i sure there will be a priceing war. sony most likly will be the market leader again, but this time MS xbox will be cheaper to build, so they will suffer less from a price war…. and who know about the Revolution will do (but it not really in compitation with the others)

    there are people comparing the dreamcast with the xbox 360 but there 2 important differences

    1: the Dreamcast is the best system of all time :roll:

    2: EA are supporting xbox 360 while they never released any games for the Dreamcast

    1. Get over it, the dreamcast was a disaster
    2. See 1 for reason why.

    Hrm, didnt see it tbh but then again I wasn’t paying much attention to the exact games. Nick, the manager in there, is a really cool guy and will be sponsoring the Games Soc Retro Console event when we get around to holding it. He’s always going to be ordering in games and stuff if he can get his hands on it so if you go in just mention Simon and DCU Games Soc and see what he says! :D

    That was probably the shop under the Dart tracks with Mario and Sonic on the shutters. Game Exchange is on the same side of the road but just abit closer to O’Connell St.
