If you trade in your PS2, a Sony branded dual shock gamepad and an 8MB memory card you'll get $100 of the cost of a PS3. If anyone is willing to do this then check out this LINK (http://dealnews.com/deals/Game-Stop-100-off-Play-Station-3-with-PS2-trade-in/149555.html)!

They do this with every console that gets outdated... well not the cube because well... they wouldn't be able to sell the used ones...

They also wouldn't need to becasue the Wii is selling like hotcakes.

I'm actually sorta kinda tempted to get a PS3. Money is burning a hole in my pocket, and there are a few Bluray movies I wouldn't mind getting. However, since I'm mostly playing Guitar Hero, Vagrant Story, and have Soul Reaver, Soul Reaver 2, Defiance, Final Fantasy 7 & Final Fantasy Tactics lined up to play... the scaling issue, incompatibility with the guitar controller, and having to trade in my memory card (MY SAVE GAMES!) kind of spoils the PS3, and that deal.

I think Gamestop is trying to offload a the PS3 that isn't selling at all for one that's selling better than all the rest, the PS2

Someone would have to pay me to buy a PS3.

I remember when I traded in my PS2 last year . . . EBGames gave me $100 for the system, controller, cords and three games. I got an XBOX in exchange. :D

The scaling issue only affects TVs that can't do 720p. So your TV won't be hit by that problem.

I agree with that other guy. I'd have to get paid to get a PS3. No I am not joking.

I still haven't figured out what the "scaling issue" is. My PS3 runs every resolution just fine. The only issue was that some Blu-Ray movies would only run in 720p until I bought an HDMI cable, and then they all ran at the proper 1080p.

The scaling issue only affects TVs like mine. I have a Sony 32" Wega and a Mitsu 55" rear projection that only accept 480p and 1080i so for me right now the PS3 isn't an option.

Once I upgrade the Mitsu to a new LCD then that's a whole nother story. That unfortunately has to wait till next year or the wifey will kill me :)

I would not mind a PS3 or 360 if they costed less than a 8800GTS but since they do not I will keep my Xbox for now.
As for the PS3 they are in every store here, the Best Buy actually has them stacked up in the walkways so you have to walk around them to get to any WII or 360 stuff.

Didnt they do this with the Wii? Trade in gamecube and get 50 dollars off a Wii.

But no, of course, fanboys spin this into something it's not....

Looks like you're both wrong:
