I am really tempted to get a ps3 to replace my stolen one. Currently I can get the 20 GB version for 399. I was looking forward to heavenly sword and after reading the reviews, it seems to be just right for me. 6 hours game time translates to abt 2 months of gaming for me, and I can live with that. Anything longer and I will give up midway. So should I get one or wait for th eprices to drop but that wont be till xmas right?

If you want superior backwards compatibility, get a 60GB now. That's what scared me into a purchase. ;)

If it is a money game, then realize the longer you wait the lower the price.. give it ten years and people might just be giving them away (maybe sooner).

I think you may need to wait a few months until Sony cut 80GB PS3 to $499 and launch cheaper 40GB PS3 for $399 or look for 60GB PS3 on ebay for bargain less than $399.

Seriously, get that PS3 for $300, go onto www.newegg.com and pick up a Western Digital SATA NB 160GB drive for $75Bucks. Takes 1/2 hour to swap out and configure and you'll have a PS3 160GB for under $400 Bucks, Guarantee and all this without effecting your warranty

Western Digital Scorpio WD1600BEVS 160GB 5400 RPM Serial ATA150 Notebook Hard Drive - OEM- Seems the price has risen slightly since I purchased but still good deal none the less

If you can find a 20GB PS3, this is fantastic advice.

QFT. The only thing you'll really be missing is the integrated Wi-Fi.

It worked GREAT for me.

Then again, it sits 2 feet away from my router.

And its on a gigabit lan.

So...

So you are saying you have a gigabit wireless? I'm doubting that.

No... I'm saying that I tried the wireless which was 2 feet away... but I also have it hooked up through the wired LAN which is gigabit.

PS3's wireless runs so slow for me while X360's wireless is very very speedy. :(

I used to have that problem but lately it has been going pretty fast. Did you try pausing your downloads for 2 seconds then resuming? For some reason the speed kicks up when you resume.

You are probably just priming the download.

Example: You click to download a file in IE and wait a few minutes before you choose where to save it to. When the download progress window appears, it looks like you've been downloading at a faster speed since it was downloading in the background while you were choosing the destination.

But the high speed continues throughout the whole download....it's really weird.

Yes. To put a point on it for you: The PS3 is now Sony's cutting edge blueray player, that also has a limited selection of games.

what a bummer! I was excited for nothing! My order changed from in progress to backorder. i called them up and they said they had no idea when they will get new stock. So I did the sane thing and cancelled the order. So much for a cheap ps3.
