This SKU frenzy is crazy on BOTH sides. lol I have no regrets for getting the 80gb Motorstorm bundle. I would honestly be confused as hell if I was a next gen console noob looking for my next console.

A bunch of people already said this, and I don't see how it ends the thread...

Brace yourself for the marvels of the PlayStation 3 complete with 80GB hard disk storage


LOL


anyone see that you will be able to play NETFLIX movies for free using the xbox come oct.....

299 for an xbox for 99 for the thing that allows you to play them on your tv.... like getting the xbox for 200

You still have to pay Netflix monthly fees... Also, you could stream Netflix already on 360 anyways... I think I heard you could on PS3 too if you know what you're doing (technically savy).

I know we are going off topic with this, but the Netflix on 360 is free and included with your Live subscription. The quality of movies available is yet to be seen though. I don't expect much personally, but I always like free.

So does this mean the 40gb model will drop to $300? :shock:?

Nope, the 40GB already sold out at most stores in my area. Some stores MIGHT have extras and may do a small cut to clear it (or bundle a game).

From everything I've read you need to have an active Netflix subscription in order to stream the movies directly to a 360.

Exactly. That is what I have read everywhere, as well. It would make little sense for Netflix to just let people rent movies for nothing.

Yes it does. The SIXAXIS controller is no longer being made.

I just got done today preordering my 80gb core PS3 from sonystyle.com. I essentially got my system for $250 with their credit card deal they have. I hope it ships early, I heard that stores can sell them once they get them.

True. However, at least at Best Buy, a minimum quantity is being held for an upcoming ad; the first one in Sept., I think.

This doesn't look like such a hot deal. I wonder why they keep cutting the USB ports down to two. The console is not getting any smaller, so I think it's just cheap.

Since day one, both MS and Sony have been bumblefucking these console revisions.

You should buy a bigger harddrive and put the old one on eBay.

Not true at all. You must have a Netflix subscription as I stated. I guess MS is accomplishing what they wanted to do... confuse people into thinking Netflix is free... damn MS.

I think I'd be OK to get this at $400...but, I'm a bit reluctant. When will we know about any holiday bundles? (for all systems)

I'd hate to find out that I could wait 2 more months and get a bundle. :wall:

You must be really dumb to think that Netflix is going to be free by just buying a 360 :lol:

I've been the one trying to tell people it is not free.

The 40/80gb systems are the same, right? (Minus the 40gb difference)


80GB includes Dual Shock 3.

Is the PS3 truly worth it? I've been thinking about buying one the past few days since I bought a motorstorm bundle and got rid of it before (because I felt there was a lack of games I was interested in) but how does everyone feel about the $400 price tag. If its truly just for a "media center" A nice Dell Inspiron Desktop with a 17 inch monitor only costs $469, surely that would make a "more flexible" media center than the PS3 would it not?

You are the only one who can judge your own satisfaction level.

Indeed. We can't tell you whether or not it's a good fit for you. Is it worth $400? Absolutely, no doubt. You get a game console, a Blu-ray player, a Linux computer, and a media hub. But will it be a good $400 spent for you? Only you know that.

I was at a gamestop today and they were clearly making room for these--some little kid and his mom brought in bags upon bags of shit to trade in and wanted a next gen system. The clerk was making the 40gb system sound like God.

Some exact quotes:
"I have both, I haven't turned on my 360 in months."
"The 360, I think, is really just the biggest waste of money."
"Yeah, unless you want Halo, then there's nothing else you're missing out on. And everyone trades Halo back in a few days later."

:lol:

The wii360 will seem much more valid after the price drop, Hence a $200 XBOX Arcade + $250 wii = $450 as opposed to $400 for the 80GB PS3, Even though Sony says they won't do a price reduction I wonder how the machine will hold up after the XBOX price drops on Sept 7th.....

I always thought that type of activity was a disservice to customers.

Speaking as a Wii owner since its launch, as a "core" gamer I haven't touched the system since Okami (great game, btw). And when I look down the road I don't see anything that really piques my interest.

I can't comment on the 360 since I don't own it, but I am very excited about the future releases for the PS3 - especially Valkyria Chronicles.

Watch this trailer and see if it does anything for you.

thats assuming your bb has the 499.99 version. Ours had loads and loads of 360s, and only three ps3s leftover, but they were the new 80s, no MGS combos.
