Oh your willing to wait that long. Because I thought of buying it some time around christmas. Is it in good condition? No scratches? (since we are really off topic we can continue this in a pm )

Haha, why are you guys even arguing about this. Sony creates the Playstation, they also make TV's, DVD players, including BLUE RAY. So why not improvise, and do a two in one? I can bet you ALL that, no matter what you hear, the playstation 3 does not cost anymore than what they are selling it for. Considering it costs about a penny to burn a created game to a CD, and then they sell it for 60 dollars, that is smart profit. Any major company would not take a 200-400 dollar loss on a product, I can guarantee you that. Creating 400,000 PS3 units, if it cost them 835, would cost $334,000,000 (If they were all 60g, so lets just say they are). Then turning around and selling them for 600 dollars a pop, is $240,000,000. What kind of IDIOT, let a lone an Entrepreneur, would even CONSIDER taking a 94 MILLION dollar loss on a product. What's that you say? They make all their profit off the games? Ya that is what I Thought, but the game developers, or the gods behind the glory, get most of that profit, in which they should. And granted that Sony does get some profit from the games, it definately does not add up to 94 million. Although Xbox360 has yet to break even, Microsoft has the ability to lose a huge pile of money and not really care. (Hence the reason that Microsoft is an all around better system than the PS3.- They make it for us, not them.) But yes, as I was saying, The playstation 3, is a computer, that is all game systems are nowadays. Open it up - you can match parts from a computer - Video card, motherboard, memory, HARD DRIVE...I can build a computer that plays games as good as the PS3 for less than 800 dollars. Oh and WOW, BLUE RAY! Does not cost anything compared to what they sell it for. They pull you in by making it sound fancy and "HIGH DEFINITION BLUE RAY DVD PLAYERS" - "OMFG BLUE RAY I HAVe TO HAVE IT IM GONNA ROB A 7/11!" For example, an HDMI cable for a HD television, costs 99.99 - more than some HD DVD players. IT'S A FRICKIN CABLE - some wires wrapped around some rubber. Have you any idea how much it costs to create that cable? One could probably run a sweat shop paying hundreds of people a day fifteen cents to make these things. This all may come out of no where for you guys, but I work in a gamestore called Gamecrazy, and I've seen some numbers. I've also built several computers to know that the companies who make these parts pay little to nothing for them. ESPECIALLY hard drives nowadays, in which xbox360 sells their 20 GIG, for 100 dollars seperate. Which probably runs them about 15-20 dollars each unless they MAKE THEM in which it probably costs less. You can take these words as BS, or you can look at it with some thought -- but do you honestly believe a HUMAN BEING, as money hungry as we are, would take that much of a loss on a product that they know will sell like hot cakes?
