Eventually, thinking of getting a Wii U $400, DS Lite $100, Raspberry Pi home-made PC $130 (+$810 unit) and a Dragonbox Pyra $930.




Anybody own any of these, advice?




I already have a PS3, Xbox360, Wii (no games), PC and Laptop (both with steam)




also thinking about getting a home theatre laptop $450 and a ockel sirius b black cherry pocket pc with manga hdmi screen $680




I just sold a GP32x Caanoo because I was pretty sure I was getting the pyra, but then I had to hold off for awhile due to price.

Wii U is so slow to do anything on, and the wireless to the controllers screen keeps dropping out. I wouldnt bother with one TBH.

Nintendo NX is due out in the first half of next year (March?). Rumours seem fairly positive, but they're just rumours at this stage. Almost nothing concrete except a new Zelda game.

okay so now we know it's the Switch? or is the NX still something else and in dev?




I'm not planning on getting a switch.


I own an xbox360, wii and ps3. mostly just play games on steam, cd classics and emus.


but I am keen to get a gpd xd, ps1, and ds lite this year or mid next year.


Definitely getting a picade before I move into a flat. And it's going to be running a raspberry pi 3.


So fairly inexpensive shopping goals.


I decided to put $800 into my current desktop and laptop rather than buy a next gen dell laptop.


anybody else saving up for new hardware?
