Ya, I was pretty sure that was the case (99.9999, repeating of course--certain ) but something someone posted above confused me so I thought I'd just ask, just in case.

But kmo, I'm in the same boat you are. I own a 360 and a Wii and love them both for totally different reasons. Just like you, I know I will get a PS3 eventually...it's just a matter of time. To be honest, I'm not sure it's quite yet worth it yet, which is probably why I'm so hesitant about buying it. MGS4 looks like a great game, and I can't wait to get my hands on it...but dropping four hundred when I still have other games I haven't finished...I just can't push myself to do it.

I have the money...but...*shrug.* Lets see if we get some more opinions ha-ha.


(BTW, just to clarify, I'm not saying it isn't worth it necessarily--I'm just unsure if this is the right time.)

Well since I already have my tv hooked up to my computer as a second moniter the PS3 streaming would be pretty much usless.

I think the thing that interests me the most is the linux. Thats what ill buy it for. But I think ill wait for another price drop. And see what happens with any future models with the PS3. Mainly a PS3 "slim."

The PS3 is already priced fairly aggressively. It's not gonna get any lower for quite awhile. You don't seem like you actually *want* a PS3 anyway, so don't bother. Only reason I'm getting a PS3 personally is because it's only $120 more than the cheapest Xbox 360, which lacks a hard drive, Blu-Ray and built-in Wifi (which the PS3 does have). Basically I view it as I'd be paying $120 for those 3 things, which is reasonable. The 360 hard drive also seems very hard to swap out, while the PS3 will take a laptop hard drive. So, I don't have anything against the 360, I just feel I'd get more for the extra $120.
