u shoulda bought one with X amount of controllers so all can play.
good call. You wont miss out on anything if you were to buy it now. More games will be released by then. I myself am holding out for the ps3 as it has better support for HD with the HDMI outputs, xbox360 only has the component video cables. Not to mention i have the ps2 so I will be able to play my games on the ps3 system. I think the ps3 specs looks much better then the xbox360 anyways.
FUCK I SHOULD OF BOUGHT ONE, they sold on ebay for 2000+ dollars for the prem. one.
and in 2 months you can buy one for the actual retail price. Bunch of retards with hard ons need the system right now.
I had to get the fucking core system. Some little girl like 2 spots ahead of me got the last fucking premium. I bought a HD with it though, so it doesn't really make that big of a difference. I wasn't gonna go home after waiting 17 fucking hours, eh. Is there a difference between a hard drive+360core+wireless pad and the premium one?
I'm listing mine on ebay tonight ^^
That being said, Best Buy are fucking crooks. Initially when we got there, they told us they were *only* selling them in bundle packs. A bundle pack comes with some games and other shit no one wants, $400 worth of extra crap. They also COST $400 more. But because they advertised in the newspaper for $400, they were forced to sell 20 premiums and 10 cores for that price.
I feel bad for the kids who waited 2 days at a local walmart. The Walmart had a RAFFLE. Which means some asshole that just walked in 5 minutes ago has the same chance to get it as someone who was there for 2 days in line.
I haven't been following this too closely because I knew I couldn't afford one this early...gotta pay the mortage before the games. But..any word on mods/hacks yet?
Good god man...clean that rot off your lower wall!
for those of yout that have it or are going to be getting one, do you even have an hdtv? im not going to buy one until i have an hdtv
Meh. I'll get around to it.
yep 1080i all the way on my 38in wide screen hdtv
The Core system also doesnt have the Chrome Finish on the DVD Drive.
lmao, How so?
The systems are so close... The only thing PS3 has is Blu-Ray, which is just a bunch of bullshit to make their system sound better. The technology won't even be used.
Can I interest any of you fine gentleman in a XBox 360?
Is that a Sly Cooper Comic Book I see?
What in gods name are you doing...sell that on ebay instead of the stupid system...$$$ galore!
It came free in a mag
Just keep the fuckin thing, or return it to the store you bought it at so an actual fan of the console can buy it for Christmas.
Everyone whos scalping here should die. :axe:
That's not going to sell homes. Core systems are going for about 700-800 dollar on eBay. Your BIN is too high. More power to you if you get it for that though.
Blu-Ray is just a bunch of bullshit? How can you say that when a blu-ray dvd can hold 54gb of space as compared to dual layer dvd which hold 9gb. Not to mention Blu-Ray is looking to be the future of dvd HDmovies, so not only will you be able to play Blu-Ray HD-DVDS with the ps3, which will save you $400-500 on a new dvd player if you wanna play that blu-ray format. Who knows how good the dvd will play on the ps3 as we all know the ps2 wasnt exactly the best for decoding video and audio for movies..
I think the xbox360 has only component video out for there HD format? While the ps3 will have support for 2xHDMI outputs for a much crisper HD picture.
I really dont know the specs of the core clock speeds and etc but im sure they will be pretty close. I just thought that i have read somewhere, maybe from when sont had the ps3 press conference, but i thought the speeds were a little higher with the ps3.
its suppose to be 2x the speed of a 360 but you know how sony likes to over estimate that sort of shit, ie ps2 early specs :roll:
i was watchin the e3 conference, and it said it has the power of 2 6800ultras? What does the xbox have ati? And this real time pixeling, does xbox have that as well?
I purposely left out the box because people would see the core system box and shy away from it, despite it being exactly the same as premium >_>.
And I hope you can pay for it, Scrubbin... I dont accept tax returns 3 months from now :|
No game will be even close to 9GB on the 360. Sure the technology will be good "down the road" but it certainly wasn't needed on the PS3. No game will go over or be even close to 10GB (let alone 54), even uncompressed. How would you feel paying $150-200 of the system just for Blu-Ray. I don't know, doesn't make sense to me.
As far as HD, HDTV is HDTV. Only hardware (and rich) enthusiasts are going to care how much "crisper" it is (if at all). PS3 will have 1080p, cool, 360 has 1080i. *shrugs*
Like I said, the systems are so close. I'm not a fan of Sony by any means, but I can agree they have an almost equal machine to the 360, minus the Blu-Ray tech.
That isn't doing me a favor. Reserve mean I'm not obligated to sell it, the buyer is still obligated to buy it if I do sell it -_-. All you did was make BIN impossible and scare people away from bidding. Why would you bid if you're broke? I'd appreciate it if you removed your bid now -__-
