Puzzles me that the iPad is actually that much wanted. To me the device is already obsolete.

Lots of Kids have atleast one gaming system already so PS3 and 360 are lower on the list. The Kinect seems fun.

3DS.. yea I agree the kids are stupid.

Why are kids stupid for wanting the 3DS. U mad? Has some great games released and upcoming over the next 6 months. But I guess people must be stupid for wanting good games XD Sucks for you then really. I mean you must be pretty damn stupid to think others are stupid for wanting to play great games.

3DS will be the best selling console this Christmas and I think it should. Its going to have a good list of games it is an amazing console. Yes its not got the power of the PSV but yet again its not about power its about how games play not on power of the console.

I expect 360 wii and PS3 to have a strong Christmas as this gen has gone back to the snes and Mega Drive times in terms of sales are good for all 3 consoles.
