    To be honest, as overhyped as the PS3 is, with a 17% price drop and the current AU$-US$ exchange rate I would maybe think about buying one possibly...

    They're still $999(!!) here...

    Well you have to ask if any where selling at all before the price drop?

    Last I read, it was struggling to outsell the GBA...

    It's easy to jump that high of a percentage when you were only selling 7 originally.

    Oh, and you still can't order a Wii on Amazon by the way.

    Well, I hear a Xbox360 price drop has a pretty good chance of being announced at E3, if not, soon after...

    Supposedly... But then again, it's just a bunch of analysts...

    (Would make sense with the PS3 price drop & and it's success though...)

    ahhh that's so annoying - why bother quoting a percentage without giving the number of the actual amount of consoles sold??

    If I had an HDTV, and if blu-ray was the established standard for all movies, I just might buy one. Right now that's all the PS3 is to me, a blu-ray player. If something like FF13 was out right now, then I might cave in and get one.

    2800% seems about right, I've been seeing PS3 sell 1 a day or less from Futureshop, and I saw 29 sell today. There are still 2.5 hours left in today so maybe Futureshop can possibly go 3700% (Which means PS3 is sold out)

    Because the number makes people feel all tingly in their pants (don't lie, you know you tingled a little)

    Plus look at where the article is coming from, PS3Fanboy.com!!!

    (Don't get me wrong folks, I still hate Sony's-Dark_Alex-stealing-asses.)

    If I replace your "If I had an HDTV" with "If there was a PS3 hack" then that's exactly how I feel!

    As I said in some other topic...

    I'm only laying down the cash when the PS3 is cracked like a mutha.

    I wonder if this includes people from the UK that are importing (is that still allowed?)

    But I'm going to wait as I like to play games. Plus I need to be able to play my PS2 imports

    This is just clever marketing by Sony. 2800% increase my ass, they just want to start a "everybody's getting it" hype going with doctored statistics. Face it, the PS3 is a big ugly gameless piece of shit and nobody wants one.

    I couldn't care less about a PS3 price drop.
    Honestly, really honestly, I wouldn't get one even for free, because there's only so much time that I can spend on gaming and getting another system, with not even one game that I like would be pointless.
    The Xbox360 elite price drop looks promising though....
    I recently started thinking about getting one, mainly because I like old school games and I've seen lots of remakes on live with incredibly improved graphics, like the original Prince of Persia and Street Fighter II.
    That's the stuff I like !
    Even though I am a Nintendo fan boy, I would never download a virtual console game, but those xbox360 remakes.......oh boy, can I even mod chip an xbox360 Elite ? That would be awesome !
    By the way, by the time I finish Metroid Prime 3 I would probably get an Xbox360 elite, this way I will put my Sharp Aquos HD tv to a good use [​IMG]
