@garyopa: hmm, your insight may help explain why sony has eluded the media's spotlight regarding the console's hardware flaws where microsoft hasn't been able to escape the attention. i don't know how sony has been able to gag the press.
it's really shady for sony to delete any posts related to any console hardware problems in their very own forums. btw, thanks for tipping us on the on semi-broken PS3 trade ins at gametop/EBgames cause i will stay away from any used ones.
@JNABK: i really want to get a PS3 bad!! i can actually afford one but i hesitate in buying one because it's game library is really small. i just wanna play god of war 3, killzone 2, and watch some blue-rays. and uh, supposedly a new Coded Arms game (formerly a psp exclusive) is going to be released soon and it looks awesome.
@bootleg: it's really tempting to get a PS3 bud. yet, supposedly the new xbox 360 v.5 mobo/chipset (gpu & cpu integrated into one chip) aka "valhalla" is going to be released either this coming fall or in early 2010. i'd like to get an elite with this new chipset at $300! nice huh.
