havnet read all the posts in here, but im a media salesman at best buy here in tucson. theres things people need to consider before they say "its a waste of money" 1) if you have HD tv it IS NOT a waste of money, and is infact a way of saving money. go buy a plain ol' bluray dvd player, then tell me the ps3 is a waste of money. lol. its about $700 cheaper than a regular bluray player. now, with that being said, i know the majority of homes dont have a HD tv right now, so yea, to you its a waste of money, but for thoes who have that capibility, it saves them in the end. now, with bluray aside, its still got a few up's on the xbox: wifi built in, scandisk reader (60gb only though), FREE online gaming as opposed to $50 a year for xbox live, sixaxis controler (motion sensitivity for up, down, left, right, front, back... if u tilt the controler your character moves that way), and 100% backwards compatibility for ps1 and ps2. theres some others too.

but, i would advise anybody reading this to wait on it for a little while. theres not supposed to be any expected problems with the concil (actually runs really cool, cooler than the ps2), but none of the game developers have taken a full swing at making a revolutionary game. so, the limits havent been tested yet. i give it about 3 months to have any bugs worked out (if there are any), and maybe a little bit longer for a really really good game to come out too. but, i can say ive had a chance to play one and its incredible, graphics are CRAZY.

AND, last but not least, theres somebody scratching their head asking "wtf is bluray" basically, instead of mixing the standard red yellow and blue (i believe thoes are teh basic colors). it has 1 BILLION colors avaliable. basically, if you looked at a picture with the human eye, then saw that picture in your tv screen in bluray, it wouldnt varry 1 bit. amazing detail.

if u have any questions ask away

lol, not exictaly sonys fault that they dont have the right tv. and ill be honest, i dont think they really care either. there still going to make a butt load of money off of it. a few customers with that tv probably dont matter to them too much.

and, im sorry u think best buy sucks. but if you lived in tucson thats kinda your only option.

ok well i just got back... very bummed right now cuz i got screwed out of some crap... and hopefully gonna sue the place... but i camped out because if you guys would look on ebay that might explain why im camping out. The highest price ive seen so far is 44,000 dollars, its hard to believe but it acutally got that high. The marjority is around 2k but still 2k - 600 = 1400 / 24 = 58.33 thats how much im getting paid to sit out there. Come on most teenagers arent gonna be paid $58 an hour.

Whats the point of getting the PS3 right now? You can wait a few months and still get it, without waiting in line. The ones I REALLY don't get are the ones paying thousands on E-bay, I mean, come on!! How dumb do yo have to be. Its just a stupid video game.
