Free online play would be great, and I hope that one day Microsoft wakes up and gets with that program. I already use rechargable batteries, already have a blu-ray player, don't care for streaming videos from my PC (it already has HDMI output), and my router is a whopping two feet from my entertainment console. It really boils down to the exclusives, which isn't many that I want to play.

I can't wait to play MGS4 and God of War 3, but $400 is still too much. I've already set the value at $300, and if the PS3 ever gets that low I'll buy one.


I hear ya man, I hear ya. Just wait for the price cut. It's almost a guarantee that they'll HAVE to cut it down before or during the holiday. Rumor is they might have one around the new Madden release. Trust me, it's worth the money, but a lower price would be sweeter, especially those like you who want the system but believe it's too expensive.

On the side note, MS did do one thing right with the hardware, which they offered a cheaper barebones alternative for those who just want the system but not pay an arm and a leg for it. Sony had a similar idea when they first launched but it's really the hardware inside that drives up the price. If they could dratically make the cell processor cheaper to manufacture, they could sell these roughly the same as a 360 pro.

Current Wishlist:

Deal of the Day: MGS4 PS3 Bundle (with BC) - $399 (or lower. I definitely wouldn't complain.)

Disgaea 3
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Valkyria Chronicles
Cross Edge

...And that's all I really want. Part of me doesn't want all of that to happen because I know damn well I'm going to be broke afterwards. Just the PS3 itself would be great (since I don't have one yet.)

niiiiiiice I love PS3 gold box days

I bet Infamous will be one of the deals but I already have it


You're probably right, though I don't see it going for less than $41.99 (I got it for $51.19- it was one of my Gold Box specials as a pre-order).

I really don't think they're going to do InFamous, though I'd happily be proven wrong.

I hope they do Infamous but $50 is already pretty low. Maybe they'll price match the Canadian Best Buy deal for $30?

Hoping for Uncharted, LBP, and/or Killzone for $30/$40.

I might bite at inFamous at that price range too.

Unless we get an early leak, 3 AM EST/12 AM PST is when Amazon themselves should update with the Deal of the Day and all the clues for the Gold Box deals.

@sinned47: If you're not opposed to buying used, check out GameStop. Heavenly Sword is on sale this week as one of the Used Deals of the Week for $25 ($21.50 after Edge discount) until they close Thursday.

As for this deal, I really don't know what to expect. I let the nagging voice in the back of my head persuade me into buying Infamous a while back when it had just lowered to $50 and was in my quick picks for $47.50. Unless they offer something like Ghostbusters(fat chance), Prototype(even more fat chance), or maybe some less popular older games, I may find this sale a bit of a miss. And mark my words: the Deal of the Day will be a PS3, either in the range of $300-350 (most likely $350) or one of those Uncharted-type bundles for about $425. I will be very surprised if it is anything other than a system. (Note: It's a guess, not confirmed)

Hoping for Uncharted, Infamous, and Motorstorm 2. I just got Little Big Planet yesterday from Amazon, I hope that's not one of the deals since Amazon doesn't do price adjustments anymore.

If there was some crazy LBP deal like $20 I would buy another and return the $42.99 copy.

Hopefully something good this time. Haven't had great deals lately. But i did get the R&C and GT5 from Target the other day, so i now have a whopping 3 games for my PS3. Infamous would be sweet, but they'd probably still have it for $58 :s

Let's hope for some good deals.

Know what would be an incredibly random but sweet deal, at least imo?

Sonic's genesis collection for 15ish. I'd bite on that..

Maybe its just me being angry that I didn't read about Heavenly Sword for 21 at Gamestop used and instead went for Uncharted/PoP as my 2 games at B2G1.....

Either way,. I'll watch the sale hahah.
