So I'm sure you've all seen the news about the Xbox 360 price drop by now. If not, it's right here.

I'm wondering, even though the price is right, is it really worth purchasing based on my gaming habits? I buckled and bought a Wii, but I knew it would eventually have Brawl, Mario Kart , and some other obviously awesome titles (thankfully with online play). I don't play much console because when I want FPS action, I can't stand dual joysticks. I have no idea how NOT using a mouse became a popular choice, but I think it's just such a watered-down approach to reaction and movement in-game.

So, assuming I won't be a Halo freak (Unreal rules all =D), are their other unique titles that make the 360 worth owning beyond my Wii console? I know cross platform titles will LOOK better (ie. Rock Band), but I don't care about that as much as games that I wouldn't be able to play anywhere else. No, I'm not trying to overthink this...just want to budget what cash flow I do have between my house, this site, and game stuff.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
