There are bugs in some o the ps3's where they won't play old ps2 games... only 400,000 systems were in the usa and they were supposed to get 6 million... they will probably have more but what you Should do is buy a ps3 thens ell it for 2g's on ebay then buy your gpu and maybe buy another ps3 when they are available

I would wait and get the r600 or 8800, that's what I would do since I'm a pc gamer, if your not go for the PS3, I'm getting the Wii

How much Sony loses per unit is irrelevant, market forces determine what the correct price is for any given product. If a company's product must be priced higher than what the market will support, even though they lose hundreds of dollars per unit, then maybe the company needs to rethink their product. (Like, you know, maybe not including an unnecessary bleeding edge optical drive that inflates unit production costs by 50%...)

I dont know why people say the PS3 is overpriced, any 600$ computer cant compare with the PS3. im gonna wait a year or so then get one when more game come out. plus by that time programmers will know how to code games with it and make the games look really good.

Because it's $200 more expensive than its competitor, which is every bit as good. And it's $200 more expensive than the average inflation-adjusted launch price for most consoles.

Again, it doesn't matter what the components are worth, or what the capabilities are for playing movies, or how it compares to a PC. It is competing with the X360 and the Wii, nothing else. And it has priced itself in the stratosphere compared to its competition.

*claps* Sony is dumb if they are losing 200$ on each console. I personally won't be buying a PS3 because of the outrageous price. Still deciding if I am going to get a Wii or Xbox 360...hard decision

There both Nice Consoles however my vote is for the Xbox360.

The 360 has been out longer so better Games and bugs have been sorted.


Dont get e wrong Wii is nice but i think you will be happier with 360..Overall depends on your budget.

You can get an 8800GTS for less than a PS3 or even a 8800GTX for a little more, which will kill the PS3 in terms of graphics performance. And you get DX10 capability.
I dont think you can go that far..

That on the other hand is very true.
