    I still can't get over "PS3. It only does money back" XD Should be "PS3. Buy one now before they all get banned from sale within the US like in some places in Europe"

    Another reason why us Canadians get screwed over.

    The EB Games here, doesn't have that members reward thing. It just has a stupid edge card.

    It's because nobody takes Canada seriously. You guys are like the French that way.

    So wait...the PSN is supposed to be back up by month's end (so I've heard), and from now until the end of the month, you can get a PS3 for $100 less.

    Suspicious sales tactic much to make up for losses?

    I saw the little "only does money back" thing if that's what you meant by the joke. Otherwise, the joke must be pretty shitty if I didn't catch it. [​IMG]

    If you don't mind, can you past the legal info next to the asterisk? It's usually on the bottom of the page [​IMG]

    Please do realize this is only offered to some Gamestop subscribers or whatever you want to call them and is a limited time only. It's just a decent bonus instead of the usual rip offs Gamestop pulls.

    Word on the street is that its a fire sale. There has been a lot of ps3 trade ins since the PSN debacle began. A lot.

    They're just trying to clear excess stock before Sony announces the official price drop at e3.

    These are dark times for sony. Although they claim they're selling the ps3 at a profit, there those who would dispute those claims. $100 off a system is pure desperation. And when retailers lack confidence in a product so does the consumer. This reminds me of those desperate Dreamcast price cuts.
