    There have been rumors about this for a while now. It's still one of the best bluray players out there, and there are a lot of other things it can do as well. I'll believe the price cut and slim when I see them though. The rumors have been around for better then a year now.

    Dammit. I've been going back and forth for about a month now on whether to trade in all my 360 stuff and get a PS3 or to just keep my X-Box and buy a seperate Blu-Ray player...and last night I went and spent $250 on a Blu-Ray player... :(

    It's already been opened and used for several hours. I'll have to see what the return policy is...

    If you really don't think you're gonna play any games on it then why get a PS3? You can get a Blu-Ray player for cheaper then $300...

    I may actually consider buying one once I have income again. Probably about a year down the road though, need to pay off some debts first and it's a low priority.

    this is great news! this makes it much more competitive with the 360. and as in terms of titles, i would say they are pretty much even because there are hardly any console specific exclusives anymore. i mean heck, squaresoft is releasing FF for an xbox for crying out loud.

    for other comparisons: the 360s live is better than PS3s home, but u dont have to play for it. also as everyone mentioned, u get a 'free' blu-ray player.

    anyway, im hoping to pick one up and wait for FF, GT5 and a future God of War or Shadow of Colossus

    Gotcha. If you think you might want to play some games, then that makes sense. I've just heard a lot of people say that they bought a PS3 with absolutely no intention of playing video games on it. That just doesn't make sense to me, because you can get a dedicated Blu-Ray player for cheaper then $300.

    On a side note, I was able to return the Blu-Ray player I bought, and my girlfriend said she'd chip in $100 for the PS3, so looks like I'll be getting a Slim next month! I'll probably keep my 360 around too, just in case there's any X-Box exclusives that I end up wanting...

    For what it's worth, coming from having both, and just getting rid of my PS3, even multi-platform titles Id probably get on the 360. 9 times out of 10 they'll have exclusive DLC, plus if you do intend to play online, XBL>>>>>>>>>>PSN.
