    Anyone excited about this? Isn't it comming out in like, November? Im not too excited about it because of all the rumors i've heard about it and the coverage on TechTV I saw like a week ago, but I plan on buying as many of these as I can, because i expect the same thing to happen that happened with the xbox360. Wide spread shortages, and insane ebay prices. :yesway:

    Anyone else getting one?

    How much will it be for all the people who preorder?

    500-600 yikes. I won't be getting one, but I'd like to play it.

    $500 for the 'core' system. $600 for the 'real' one.

    Which means ebay ones will be $1200. :lol:

    november 17 release date, expect at least a $100 deposite on preorder systems, and for all intensive purposes invest in the $600 set up for the HDMI outputs and larger harddrive (if you intend on getting the best out of the system), that being said, Im waiting for the 1st wave so to speak so I can stand back and see what needs to be improved, remember ps2 launch anybody?

    I'm preparing to buy a few now that I'm back to work :)D). Having people desperately looking for them will make for a nice little earner.

    After the 360s came out, my wife got one for me on ebay for the hollidays. She got it for $450 which wasn't too bad so I wouldn't rule out all hope. The thing is, when the new decks come out there are so many on ebay that some slip through the cracks that are listed by morons that have strange end of auction times.

    I never get systems right after they're released. I aquire them from my friends after they break down so I spend less and I'm always behind the times to throw off that "popularity" curve. :lol: Games are always cheaper too!

    When I worked at Circuit City, they said we do NOT get first picks, they go to the customer. If mgmt says you can get first picks, then :bowdown: :yesway: , and :fawk:

    I always wait for a new system to be out for a half a year to a year first. Cheaper, plus all the bugs get worked out. It's not like I need the latest and greatest, because I have guitars. :D

    There is nothing quite so heartwarming as good ol' well-deserved abuse of power. :flex:

    I don't own any systems any more, but my computer is rigged up with emulators now. Atari, SES, SNES, SEGA Genisis, PSX, N64, PS2 and so on...
