Haha for a 3D TV yes. It's a pretty good deal. Now I just need to hope that the technology actually catches on. Being an early adoter is a bit risky.

Hehe yeah. I have a 23" inch TV but now I'm earning I fancied getting a bigger tv in the january sales but I'm thinking I might wait to see what happens with 3D cause if I buy a TV now am I just going to be buying a 3D in a year or two?

Yeah, im gonna see if it lasts a few generations of tvs. And by then it'll be dirt cheap if it does catch on anyway. I can see me using it if i do get one though. I had my old manager show me some of them and he even put a 2d show on and made it convert it to 3d (not exactly sure what that feature is called) and it was actually pretty decent. It'll only get better as time goes on to. When i had a look the Panasonic was by far the best. Though there might be new models out by now and i dont know if i saw your one.

I've got Chinatown wars for the iPhone. It's kick ass for being a portable game, but I'm assuming you picked it up for psp/DS, Definitely one of those games that could really benefit from PHYSICAL controls.

Yea for DS
At first I was iffy since I wasn't used to the controls, driving was really hard but I'm getting the hang of it.
Just started getting into drug dealing and making a killing, scratch cards are way too lucky tho, kept buying them and won thousands plus a house in a not very long. I'm also starting to relearn/recognize the city so getting around is getting better.

Lair of the Shadow Broker, Overlord, and Kasumi - Stolen Memory for Mass Effect 2 were all on sale recently on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, so I bought them all. Though I obviously spent MP on them (only 200 each), by extension I spent money.

I bought the 3D Blu-Ray version of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Also, I sold my unused BR player on ebay for $150. ^___^

My family still has a laserdisc player.

Haha yeah that's kinda how my mom is. She doesn't really care. My grandparents on the other hand keep up pretty well. My grandma bought an iPad recently and loves it.

Anyway, last things I bought were:

PS Move Navigation controller (for when Killzone 3 comes out)


A used copy of Killzone 2 (I only played the first level at a friend's house)




I'm probably gonna get that Killzone 3 PS Move gun thing when it comes out. That + 3D = me looking like a MASSIVE nerd but I can't wait hahaha.



I should probably invest in some blinds for my window as well.

DOUBLE POST DEAL WITH IT.



19 inch Samsung TV for my mom for her birthday. She's wanted one for her room for ages so I know she'll be excited.

Bought 2 120mm case fans for my pc. I have a rear and top exhaust fans at the moment but no intakes so hopefully this will lower my temps a bit. My teamps are quite low actually except my gfx runs a little hot so I would welcome a lowering of the temps of that.
