They're starting to show up in the classifieds here now for €450 odd with 2-3 games and 2 controllers.  That's a hell of a drop for 1 month on sale...
Nice ;)
Sounds like I might get a PS3 after or under summer... asumming I can stay away from getting a quad core cpu :/

Yes, because quad core cpu's are REALLY useful these days!

The PS3 is really a nice machine...I'm loving it way more than the Wii. Its a real shame Sony fucked up on so many aspects of it...

What's the point of the 80gb model though? You can get a 160gb drive for a lot less and fit it yourself. At least then you'd still have reliable backward compatibility...

Maybe for n00bs who don't dare to fit it themselves?

I read somewhere that the 80GB model is easier to hack. Should try and look it up again. Anyway, I am really trying not to run out and buy one right now.

Sounds kinda strange that it would be easier to hack...
did they change the rest of the hardware in someway? O_o

Easier to store big stuff ;) but you could just get a bigger disc and plug it in yourself...

Good Christ, they've done it again....  It beggers belief!  Who the fuck in sony makes these decisions?  As of Wednesday they'll introduse a 40gb model and phase out the 60gb.  That's a 40gb model minus the card reader, 2 USB ports and NO FUCKING BACKWARDS COMPATABILITY AT ALL!!!!  Fuck me! How dumb are these fuckers?

Fine with the USB ports and card reader, if we need more we can just plug in a hub or external reader but no BC??? Fucking retarded! Like I don't have enough crap clogging up my living room and plug boards already.  If history is anything to go by, they'll wait til a few more people cave and buy this and then introduce a 120gb model with hardware BC, 2 dualshock controllers and a couple of games just to piss them off.

Anyone who pays 599 US DOLLARS is already sucking up to them anyway.
Who cares, if you buy Sony you're a fucking idiot.

Heard about the new model but didn't realise they're removing the old models so you can't get backwards compat at all in a new machine anymore.

Fucking failure of a console.  Can't even justify the price by being able to use it decently as a standard Linux comp since it insists on running it on a hypervisor so you get no 3D acceleration.

. . . but it will have Sony home! . . . sameday . . . in the future! . . . think foward!
You can pay real money in form of virtual credits in order to get virtual forniture and other important stuff!

Actually, will still pick up a PS3 someday but the current amount of games seems to be fewer to it than for the Wii. (which says a lot) By now the PCs are starting to get so good so the PS3 isn't much to hang in the tree soon. ;) (though cell is still great for some parts of scientifical computing) . . .

And that's what we're really looking for in a games console :)

In all fairness, the PS3 makes a very good streaming machine when married to TVersity. Seems that's mainly what I use mine for nowadays... that and upscaling DVDs to 1080p glory. Very good DVD player that.

The latest news is that the budget 40Gb version in Europe can't play PS/PS2 games because Sony wants to sell PS3 games. ;)
