Hmm well I guess the first thing I should say is that I'm a gamer. I own all three consoles and I think I've owned nearly every console and computer going all the way back to my Commodore +4 and my Commodore 64 prior to that it was simply a pong machine thingy that plugged into my TV and let me do something with the TV rather than just watch it...I'm still baffled as to why people watch TV when they could be interacting with it (What I really mean is ... SOAPS on TV? WTF?? Oprah?? HUH??).
Apart from that I live in Sydney, work in an interesting industry and have a red Wii which I'm baffled as to how to install games onto my HD - which is why I'm here
