Someone gave you 100$us for your gamecube?! ohmy.gif

Wow. Nice sell.

I have around 320 bucks so far from my birthday and other stuff. I don't know how much I have in my bank, maybe another 100 - I'm not sure.

I'm gonna get myself another job (quit my other one in early july) so I can make myself the extra 350 or so bucks.

All canadian dollars, btw.

I might have to wait until after christmas to get the Xbox 360 (I doubt it, but it wouldn't be the worst case scenario) because I'll get some gift money.

If I have enough money for the 360 near launch, then the money I get on christmas will go towards my monitor and the expensive-ass vga cable.



btw, passing the greenery? rolleyes.gif Because drugs are cool, aren't they.

I'm not preordering. I'm not 100% I'll even have the money by launch, but I should as long as I get a job soon.
Even if I don't, like I said, I could just wait until christmas and gather the gift cash. I'll have a lot of gameplay movies and video reviews to watch on gamespot.

Maybe it is different in different state, but in my state this would be illegal. Like poker tourneys you can have one but if the host makes money off of it, it becomes illegal.

I have about 150 bucks put down at mine at Ebgames.

I sold a extra audio mixer I had for a 100 bucks, cut someones lawn for 50, so thats another 150 on its way. I just need a 100 more bucks and I'm set after that.


I'll get the system and a game from EB and then use my best buy card to go nuts once they get games and other stuff in.

IANAL, but most states prohibit the organizer/host making money off of a tournament only in games of chance. LAN parties and such don't fall under that category, especially since typical PC LAN parties require resources outside of the players' equipment: an adequate venue, sufficient power, networking/Internet equipment, etc.

However, be warned: most LAN parties, even console parties, tend to lose money or barely break even, so if you're doing it for money, there are better ways.

Of course, you could go all out and try to get sponsors to donate prizes, but that kind of event takes months of planning.

As far as saving money is concerned, we've got roughly 70 days until launch (give or take). If you can come up with $7.14 a day from now until then, you'll have right under $500 for launch. It may sound like a lot, but most people can cut $7 out of what they spend in a day easily. And if you've got money already saved up, it's even easier.

I have 250 for it so far, just 30 more to go but I will be spending 450 on release day, that's about $809.

Xbox premium pack
Extra wireless controller
Play and charge kit
Wireless adapter for LIVE
Perfect Dark Zero.

I suppose that is good seeing as I paid 400 for just the Xbox on release day march 14th 2002.
