For that price it is a bargain. If you don't like it sell it on.
Some one track minded people on here will tell you there are no games, but don't believe a word. Check out the listings and releases. As a media centre it is great it plays more formats than the 360 and BR playback is stunning. Online is free and works great.

At that price it's MORE than worth it.

U can then swap out that baby sized HD and put in a 320giger (were 60 bucks at CompUSA)

There are a few innovative games that should catch your attention. and everything else and then some that Chancer has said already.

Yeah im gonna jump on it. I was doing some reading about the tweaks you can do but seemed like most are on the first released system. One other thing i thought of, if these are hot , do i have to be concerned? They are brand new never opened. Will i have a problem going online(serial number)? Not worth getting in trouble.

Good question. But I am going to trust that the people that you associate with would not put you in that sort of situation.


I still would purchase it though hot or not. smile.gif

that is a heck of a deal.
great bargain even if you are not a die-hard.
i'm sure you'd find some uses for it.

so, how do you like it so far?

Doesn't get hot at all, you can install Linux on it too, the only problem I have with mine is PlayTV doesn't record as good as an LG recorder it tends to glitch a bit blink.gif might be a signal issue though for me. Flower is a great game, Killzone 2 meant to be good too and I love LBP (great for two player). PS Home is also fun. I like the Photo Slideshow app a lot for my photography and the Folding@Home (Life with Playstion) app is good to.
