|torn, and not in the natalie imbruglia fashion

Man, I am totally torn about the prospect of getting an XBox360. On the one hand, with Guitar Hero II (now with downloadable content!) out already, and the prospect of games I would actually care to get like GTA IV (and Rock Band, assuming it does not totally suck) on the horizon, I'll almost certainly end up with one eventually... and if I'm already committed to getting one, hey, no time like the present. If I'm gonna pay, might as well enjoy reap the benefits of playing now.|
'Course, on the other hand, it's not like there's much out presently that I'd be compelled to acquire... which means it's the equivalent of blowing several hundred dollars on, essentially, a uni-task machine. A uni-task machine that will have future benefits, true... but a uni-task machine all the same. That I would only use to play an extended version of a game I already own and can play gratis, using a funky new controller that's been getting hot-and-cold reviews. So yeah, like I said: totally torn.
(This is the part of the post where you craftily offer to let me play Guitar Hero II on your Xbox360 - "you know, just to help you in the evaluation process" - while craftily and 'inadvertently' getting me to earn a mess of activation points on your behalf in the process. To be absolutely clear, I am totally fine with this prospect.)
