This is a dumb deal. There is nothing to be happy about.
It's much better to get the elite than this.
Go get the l33t man, it's da BEAST.
And they throw in that stupid racing game MotorDirt. Pfft.

iF YOU WANT A RED RING OF DEATH..AND NO METAL GEAR OR FINAL FANTASY...OR NO GOD OF WAR..NO UT MODS....LIMITED BC AND NO FREE ONLINE AND DVD9 LIMITING ISSIUES..YEA GET AN ELITE BUT IF YOU WANT...

Only the twits thought so.

The 60G pS3 was/is a stock run out. FULL STOP. The 80G probably to become the standard SKU....and if worldwide will likely result in runouts as well. Cheaper Ps3s!!

HDD capacity is not a major part of the price especially when you can upgrade to 120G+ for < $100.

Having said all this, I predict a ** REAL PRICE DROP ** of all SKUs worldwide by Xmas. Sony and developers need more bums on seats for better profits for all the great games coming.

Hmmmmmmmmmm? Actually, would be a great reason to DELay a game. Think about that one, boys.

nasim3703d ago

it has no next gen dvd drive

it has no wifi

it has no HDMI 1.3 support ( elite supports OLD HDMI 1.2)

it charges 50$ for useless online and 2d text.

elite suffers from overheating and is 100% defective.

no one wants trash box 360 elite

But when did Sony say they were going to discontinue the 60gb PS3? The last thing I heard about it was some Sony Rep from Europe was talking about it, but Sony said he must have been misinformed. I dunno.

Rageanitus3703d ago

They wont introduce an 80gb core system when the 60 gb's run out. Ive seen many generations of consoles and there is ALWAYS a core model

It want to nit pick at costs then your at the wrong area, the ps3 even at 599 is better value than the xbox.

Blu-ray and wirless alone make it a much versatile unit, and did I mention its much more reliable. It sad to see xbox STILL having faulty units after a 2 year run.

Sorry spending time shipping the product for repair is valuable time wasted.

lol at the two Xbots
it's not a good deal but is still much more for the money compared to the elite

s8anicslayer3703d ago

i agree xbots hover over this site for any chance they can get to start ps3 bashing, no matter if it's good news or bad, get a life people!

Azures3703d ago

If we just agreed to stay out of each other's news stories that would be enough for me. That of course, won't happen.

ReBurn3703d ago

So what stories are those of us with all 3 systems supposed to read if we're to stay out of each other's stories? I think the proper reaction is to just not post if you don't have anything constructive to say.

Azures3703d ago

I'm talking about the zealous. if you have no real fanatic leanings one way or another then it doesn't pertain to you.

Anything but Cute3703d ago

stick with the 60GB for $499. The $499 is like the PS3 version of XBOX 360 premuim. Which still sells more than the Elite.

MACHone3703d ago

Big box came into work today. I was pretty surprised when I saw two 80GB PS3's inside -- I thought they weren't supposed to be out until the 12th. The 60GB's still the best deal, especially if you own a slew of PSone and PS2 games, like me.
