lowered its price because they knew the complaint about the large controllers, and that they had the smaller controllers coming. It pee'd me off quite a bit since I bought mine shortly before the release of smaller controllers and ended up with a bunch of big ones no one would play with unless we were short at lan parties.

So farm I can't see PS3 getting a price drop for months, until the 65nm technology is going into every new system, blu-ray gets cheaper, and they hit the shelves for awhile, and then some killer apps hit.

Looks like my local Target store LOL. But I will gladly purchase one when the price drops. I do want to play the exclusives.

The new Playstation will be welcome once I see that Majical $300.00 price tag. My 2007 tax return will be crazy big. I'll get a PS3, XBOX360 ELITE,and new 1080p SONY projector, and a 32" samsung HD TV. The PS3 should not be hard to find a $300.00 by next FEB - MAR.
