got a PS3!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I walked into EB this evening to see if they had any news about the Official Nintendo component cables for the Wii and saw that they had a PS3 sitting behind the counter.... the guy asks if he can help me and I said 'yeah, I'll take that PS3.' and he told me to get in line... there was about 15 people in front of me, so I quickly found the end of the line and got in... about 5 minutes later the guy asked me what my name was so I told him and he put my name on it! It's only the 20Gb version, but they're so hard to come by!

I'm thinking that I'll probably put it on ebay because I'd rather have the 60gb and I do have a Wii so that'll keep me busy for a little while. I was just so amazed to actually see one in the store that I had to buy it!

lol, nice find, you managed to find the one and only in any store in North America. I think you've heard the rumors right? Sony is only shipping 1 over per week now.

Anyways good luck with it. Ebay would be a good choice seeing that you already have a Wii, might as well get a nice tv with the profits or get a 360 or something like that.

Prices have dropped significantly for the PS3. You can find a lot for less than $1,000 now. Still...very nice.

yep, I paid the regular price of $500 and then I got the extended warranty from EB for $60 and with tax the total came to a little over $600.

I added it to my for sale thread

they tend to go for more if you sell it. And an extended warranty is a good idea with a new consel... there are almost always problems when they first come out

Just buy a 120 gig hard drive on ebay for 30 bucks, and wait for sony to produce wifi adapter for 20 gig models. I personaly like the all black look on the 20 gig models
