Perhaps the biggest bundling effort of them all goes to Sony's offer at CompUSA: "Reserve your PlayStation 3 on Friday, November 17th when you buy any Sony HDTV 40" or larger." According to Uninnovate, if the customer returns the television, they must also return the PlayStation 3 and pay a 15% restocking fee. Considering that the least expensive Sony 40" HDTV sold at CompUSA online is a $1,799 model, this could be the priciest pre-order offer yet. Even with the cheaper 20GB PS3, the full package will set you back almost $2,300.

This has to break some kind of law.

I guess this is good for people who don't have HDTV's but s***. Nice way to shaft the customer.:thumbdwn:
