    so...i made a thread before about buying a system, well things fell through and i didnt get the coin....

    now....tax season....wifey and i are dead set on using our state tax return (first time i ever paid state taxes) we are gunna get a wii/wii fitness for the wifey and me a ps3.....


    i have asked this before, and i will again.....should i just get the 40gb? i wont be downloading anything, just some online gameplay with madden and ncaa....maybe some shooter games....and watching blu ray....

    40gb is the best bet right? (and cheaper)

    any more advice?

    You won't find a 40gb in stores. The 80gb took its place. Right now it retails for $399.

    Well unless you want a used one from gamestop, you're stuck going with the 80 gig. And at the 400 price point, you may wanna consider going for the 160 gig w/ drakes unfortunate just for the heck of it.

    However, i gotta ask, is the Blu ray player that important to you? Cause you could save more money going with the 360, cause madden/ncaa are the same on there. Plus its loaded with great shooters. (***not starting a console war, just wanna know if the Blu Ray player is the reason)

    Not only that, but it comes built in with the wireless adapter. You gotta shell out $100 bucks more for the Xbox Wireless adapter.

    To answer you other question, if you can find a used 40GB system it will definitely meet your needs if you don't need backwards compatibility.

    Yup, you can get old games including SMB3 for 5 bucks a piece. Wii is a lot of fun for multi-player games. It would be the system I played the most if I still was in college or had roomates. My favorite game on the Wii is Super Smash Brothers Brawl.

    I love my PS3 but Sony always seems to be behind the curve with DLC. I hate it. That being said odds are any Xbox 360 you bought would break or scratch your discs up or something. So it's kind of a wash. The newest edition of the best baseball game ever is releasing in early march, PS3 only. [MLB the show]

    Wait, wait, wait... Where the hell were all you MLB 08 players last year when I was dominating online??? I would of played all of you...

    I just might get another PS3 for MLB (plus their 1st party exclusives).

    But there are rumors PS3 is going to price drop in Q1. I'd do my research if I was you.

    Well there's nothing substantial, but it kind of HAS to drop at some point soon. Sony is hurting in the console game, and the fact that their main competition in the 'high def gaming' (360) is selling a unit for literally half the price of their system (be it severely gimped as it may), well that's just not good business.

    Again, sony hasn't said anything substantial, but in this economy, being the highly priced system is not a good thing.

    It's still only a rumor and it's also highly unlikely for a while.

    Get yourself a Playstation Credit Card and get $100 dollars off the purchase of a PS3.

    or just buy it at wal mart or target which has a 90 day return policy. that gives you three months to get your money back if the price drops. i got the 60 gig for 600 and it dropped to 500 two months later, and i got my 100 back. bought it at target.
