Central question to Peripheral Sales

So now that E3 is over, I have a question to our brethren who attended and had time to play with the various new peripherals (music, or first party). I know as much that they're all reported to work to a great degree. But, what was the general feeling about buying them from the show floor? Are you going to buy them? Do you see a surge in the industry's purse form this new hardware revolution, or has Nintendo and Activision's constant stream of plastic created peripheral malaise?

Also, don't I look good in a bow tie?
