Very tempting. Though this sale must suck for all the people that bought systems during the 15% off deal over the holidays. While I have the money for either a PS3 or a 360 I don't think decreasing my "New PC 2009" fund is worth it. Playing Starcraft II at launch is a way bigger priority currently.

On a Tangent, why don't we have a Cheap Ass Gaffer, NA edition? Both parts of Pal-land have one.

I've always found electronic deals are better after the holidays.

Uncharted Bundle now or wait for price cut? Hmmmm....
Let's say we see the unlikely event that the Uncharted Bundle gets a $100 price cut. You'll still be paying $5 more.

I think they are only that cheap if you have the Dell Card.
Or click the damn link. If they're broken, tell me. I only got some of them from CAG. I did my own browsing for the rest.

Pretty good deal if you're looking to get a system. I'm mildly tempted to get a PSP-2000 or a 4000 point card.

80GB PS3 is cheaper there than a $300 system with tax by about eight bucks. Too bad I get paid the week after next.

If I were to get the Xbox 360 Pro for $236.36, what else would I need to grab? Cables? Wifi? Anything else?

I'd grab a 4000 MS Points as that's about as cheap as you'll probably get them unless you're Wario64. Separate order would have shipping costs I think. The console comes with an ethernet cord. If you want to go wireless, you'll need a wireless adapter.

You'll also need to buy Tales of Vesperia and Bioshock (if you don't own it for another console) for maximum fun levels.

I've seen this in pics but is it really as bad as they show? I mean some people take the worst possible pictures to make it look way worse than it is.

If it's anything like what I see when I'm playing an interlaced video/game on my computer monitor, it's gonna be pretty bad. Why not look at the PSP-2000 instead?

I really would prefer the extra color that the new lcd was supposed to add. Also I like the built in mic so I don't have to buy one and carry it with me.

I don't remember needing to buy a wifi adapter for my 360. And I do remember my PS3's wifi being more annoying to set up than even the Wii. My PS3 is now connected using a ethernet cable which it didn't come with.

plot twist :eek: ps3 needed extra materials and 360 didn't!

Unlike the other HD console, the Xbox 360 comes with component cables. You do need a Wi-Fi adapter though (or you could plug it into your router).

Unlike other threads on GAF, this thread doesn't have to dissolve into system warz.

All depends on you. I don't find it that annoying enough. Although I don't own the PSP 3000, but I have tested myself.

Is this something that can be fixed with firmware? Or is it just always borked until they put out a new version?
Its a hardware thing, so no firmware fix. Sony said its not a problem so I don't think they'll be a fix version.

Anyone have any idea what Gamestop gives as trade in credit on a pre-hdmi 20gb xbox 360 pro either with or without the HD? I may buy a Pro or a core unit to replace it.

Doesn't the 3000 have better battery life too? The 2000 for $135 is definitely a good deal, but the bundle of the 3000 is such a better value since I love Ratchet and would want to buy it anyway. Shame.

Wow, this is absurd... not a problem?

I checked to see if Banjo-Kazooie: N&B was part of the sale, but they didn't have the game. Then I checked Amazon and it's $29.97 in case anyone is interested.

But my friend convinced me to wait on the game since my backlog is so ridiculously large. :p

:c

Yes, it looks bad, but not every game suffers from that. In-fact, the only game that I even see that of is this Disgaea pic. Other games on the 3k look tons better, Ratchet Size Matters looks awesome.

This is another one of the internet myths that you have to take control of yourself. The problem is there, but not huge.

Is the extra 7% off like an emplyee discount from other companies (not Dell). I know my mom gets a discount through Comcast. I wonder if I can stack that too, or is that what the members deal thing is?

Same here. Why is that pic the ONLY example of poor image of the PSP 3000?

Wait, your PS3 didn't come with an ethernet cable? Are you sure about that? Because mine did.

Anyways, I wish this deal applied to Canada too :(
