But don't you dare say I'm anti-Sony.

Had a hell of a time trying to find an EB or GameStop that had a 20 GB model. I had over $100 in store credit from them, and with selling off a few DVDs to a friend, my total out of pocket cost, including tax was just over $300. I couldn't pass it up for that price. Can't wait to jump headlong into Resistance, MotorStorm, and GTHD.

Enjoy it you fanboy!

Why 20GB though? Don't care for the Wifi?

EDIT: If you don't have a PS2, get some PS2 titles aswell... God of War is not one to miss out on.

Congrats.

Yeah, I'm not sure I've seen any 20GB models (in regards to being tough to find). I wonder what the ratio was for the launch.

Rofl! The pic is photoshopped!:p

Interesting to note that Saturn has a Talledega Nights PS3. I thought that was only in the first 500,000.

FYI saturn, if you did receive the movie there should be a bag with Blu-ray adds. You should find a small booklet with rebates from various movie studios for $10 off on select titles. Don't throw it out!:p

Feel free to add me to your friend's list as well once you get it set up.

Nice, good move Saturn! I take advantage of the card-reader and wi-fi on my 60GB model but if you have no use for it, than it shouldn't make a difference :)

Most store must still have their first couple of batches lying round unsold :) j/k

Looks good, still a long wait for us in the EU and AU :(

but don't PS2 titles look really really bad on a PS3?

Not anymore, issue was fixed. Now they look just like they did on the PS2.

Well then I may just eat my words and buy a PS3. Not now. I haven't had the time to touch my Wii (ha ha) or 360 in months. But maybe in another 6-8 months if the PS3 has a decent library I may buy it.

WiFi is actually a requirement for me, as my router is upstairs and the console is downstairs. However, I have the D-Link DGL-3420 wireless adapter that will be sharing duty with my 360. Once I registered the PS3 on my network, it connected right away via the D-Link adapter. Later I may spring for another 3420. I wouldn't have used the card reader either, so all in all it didn't make sense to spring for the 60 GB model.

On the PS2 titles, I definitely want to check out God of War, but I've got other stuff to play first. I'm in over my head enough as it is right now. When I finish Red Steel and Resistance maybe.

This issue was supposedly fixed with the latest software update. There was a thread about it here not too long ago to validate it. I don't have any PS2 games so I couldn't tell you.

Yeah, that's where the dirty shoes go when we have guests. We're too lazy/cheap to buy a new one. :p

I've been curious about this as well, not only in terms of the ratio of units available at launch but also the overall take rate between the two. At least in the Chicago area, there have been by far more 60 GB models on shelves. Since the day after Christmas, counting my purchase, I've seen maybe 10 total 20 GB ones and literally dozens of 60s. I know our Fry's had two the day after Christmas, and in purusing local Best Buys there have been just one or two. The GameStop where I bought mine still had one more 20.

When the 60GB model drops to $400 I think I'll buy it.
