Default PS3 For me

No that anyone cares, but it must have been my lucky day today. I was hoping to get PS3 for Christmas, but didnt feel like paying 1000.00 for it, and sure as hell wasn't going to wait in line all night. Then i was at walmart looking at XBOX games and a guy walks in and sticks one on the rack. I figured it wasa display box but he said it was the real deal so I took it. No Crowds, no fighting, no price inflation. It was great. Now i just have to get some games for it.

Nicely done. It is your lucky day. that employee probably knew he would be confronted right away. Even if i didnt have 600, i would have charged it.

I think i am gonna sell it actually, i didnt even open the box or any thing, im not that big into gaming, If someone is really interested I sell it right now for 650.00 plus shipping. I paid 647.00 for it, so im not really making a profit, just offering it to you nasioc folks. Ive moved out of state now, but could set up shipping.

The week of Christmas Best Buy had about 5 PS3's, Gamestop had 10PS3, and Wal-mart got 3PS3's. They all were the 60gigs. My girlfriends friend got one from Best Buy, just had to be lucky and be there when they were handing them out. My Co-worker got one from Wal-Mart. So that supply is gone now and they are sold out once again. They are hard to find and I'm sure there's still a lot of people that want one.

I got mine the day before X-mas. I wanted one so bad that I looked on Ebay and found one here in the loca area. I picked it up for 650.00. The prices on Ebay aren't that high anymore, max being around $7-750.00 for a 60 gig. $750.00 usually gets you an extra controller and a couple games.

Right now, every game out for the PS3 sucks big time. I'm waiting for Metal Gear Solid 4 and Final Fantasy. Next I need to get a TV that can play in 1080i or 720P

Went to walmart to buy gears of war and their was a guy asking if they had one, ofcourse they didnt so i let him know i had an extra and he said he only had 800, i would have let it go for 700.00 so bummer for him. Oh well i would rather have the nintendo any ways. Anyone on the board playing XBOX live games??
