I think that impacts old 360's more though. Plus they just extended the warranty to 3 years.

Re: Sony kills 20GB Playstation 3

and it's actually around 30%, but as dj said they just extended their warranty's to an unprecedented 3 years (and possibly too late to make a bunch of consumers happy.) I honestly don't know what someone's smoking who has both that at this point would recommend the PS3 with it's whoping 40 some titles compared to the 360's 140 some titles. Like I've stated before I'm planning on getting a PS3 as well a bit after the price drop cuz they will finally have some worthwhile titles like Lair, Heavenly Sword, and Uncharted and not just a bunch of delayed ports of 360 titles. As someone who sells this stuff on a daily basis and sees and hears a bunch of the behind the scenes stuff, right now your money in all honesty is going to get you the most bang for your buck by going towards a 360 or waiting til next year when another PS3 price drop occurs and even more worthwhile titles are out. The PS3 is also going to suffer a little longer from 3rd party developers being frustrated by the difficulty developing titles for the PS3, and that will result in what's happening with Madden, NCAA, and 2K8 having scaled back ports of their 360 counterparts. The Wii is cool but it is suffering from the same thing the PS3 is with big exclusive titles. When the sweet as hell looking Smash Bros and Mario Galaxy come out, snatch one up if you can find one. This would be the exact same thing I would be telling to someone who was a close personal friend, as I've tried in the past to help some friends or really good customers make up their minds and ALL of them have regretted going the PS3 route up to this point. No matter what choice you make, you'll have fun, but in my honest opinion, the best value right now is the 360. In the end it's your money so enjoy it haha.

Re: Sony kills 20GB Playstation 3

I think if you are really into Japanese games like Final Fantasy and Metal Gear than it might make sense to consider the ps3, but that's the only reason I can think of. XBOX seems better for pretty much everything else, from online play to title selection.

Skinsfan, what's up with NCAA and Madden being scaled back? I hadn't heard about that?

Re: Sony kills 20GB Playstation 3

I use my PS3 for sports games, 360 for shooter games and shit like that, and the Wii for family games like Mario Party and the new Super Smash brothers when it comes out.
